The Divine Ascendant

Itís not uncommon for powerful adventurers to see themselves as akin to divine beings walking among lesser mortals. While in most cases such a belief would be nothing more than a narcissistic delusion, in some instances there may be a kernel of truth to these pretentions of divinity. Claiming to be divinities in the process of ascension, these would be godlings possess potent magical powers that few other mortals can match.

Adventures: Divine ascendants typically adventure as a way to increase their personal power and further their progression towards their eventual apotheosis. Furthermore, many divine ascendants relish the accolades and fame that adventuring can bring, seeing it as a way to cultivate worshipers for their eventual ascension.

Characteristics: Divine ascendants are potent spellcasters, if not particularly versatile, able to call upon magic tied to the aspects of reality that the divine ascendant champions. In addition to their spellcasting abilities, all divine ascendants possess a wide assortment of supernatural powers which set them apart from common mortals, not the least of which is a potent aura.

Alignment: Like the deities that they aspire to become, divine ascendants can be of any alignment.

Religion: While in some cases a divine ascendant will revere an established deity as something to akin to a mentor or role model, most divine ascendants prefer to revere themselves.

Background: Much like sorcerers, a divine ascendantís powers typically start to manifest around puberty, usually following a traumatic or otherwise dramatic life event. The precise nature of such an event will often help shape divine ascendantís chosen dogma, influencing their initial choice of domains.

Races: Divine ascendants can be found among nearly every humanoid race. However, races with a strong affinity towards a single deity are far less likely to produce divine ascendants than others.

Other Classes: A given divine ascendantís ability to get along with other classes is largely determined by the nature of their chosen domains. A divine ascendant devoted to magic and knowledge will find it far easier to get along with wizards and sorcerers, while one devoted to war and strength will likely find much in common with initiators. That said, very few clerics look kindly upon divine ascendants, seeing them as well-meaning narcissists at best and blasphemous monsters at worst.

Role: A divine ascendantís role in a party is determined by a combination of what domains and what deific powers they have chosen. One role that almost any divine ascendant can fill, however, is party face, in large part thanks to their typically high Charisma.

GAME RULE INFORMATION

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Divine ascendants are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).

Spells: A divine ascendant casts divine spells. A divine ascendant my cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time the way a cleric or wizard must. When a divine ascendant gains access to a new level of spells, he automatically knows all the spells of that level on his list.
To cast a spell, a divine ascendant must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a divine ascendantís spell is 10 + the spell level + the divine ascendantís Charisma modifier.
Unlike other spellcasters, divine ascendants do not share a single spell list. Instead, a divine ascendantís spell list is made up of multiple chosen domains. A divine ascendant begins play knowing 2 domains. At 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th level, a divine ascendant may select an additional domain. A divine ascendant may only select an alignment domain (Chaos, Evil, Good, or Law) if their alignment matches that domain. A divine ascendant receives the granted powers of each domain selected, and additionally gains an additional use of any domain power with a limited number of uses per day at levels 3, 6, 9, 12, 15 and 18.

Outsider Vulnerabilities (Ex): The quasi-divine essence that suffuses a divine ascendantís being also leaves them vulnerable to certain magical effects. For the purposes of spells or effects that have additional or increased effects on outsiders, such as the holy smite spell, a divine ascendant is treated as being an outsider, even though they are not an extraplanar creature.
Furthermore, the strength of a divine ascendantís alignment aura (see the detect evil spell) is determined as though they were an outsider of their alignment.

Turn or Rebuke Undead (Su): All divine ascendants have the power to affect undead creatures by channeling their divine power.
A good divine ascendant can turn or undead creatures by channeling positive energy. An evil divine ascendant instead rebukes or commands such creatures by channeling negative energy, forcing them to cower in awe of his power. A neutral divine ascendant can choose to channel either positive or negative energy. Once they make this choice, it cannot be reversed.
A divine ascendant may attempt to turn or rebuke undead a number of times per day equal to 3 + his Charisma modifier. A divine ascendant with 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (religion) gets a +2 bonus on turning checks against undead.

Deific Power (Su): In addition to their spellcasting abilities, divine ascendants possess unique powers which set them apart from ordinary mortals. These powers enable the divine ascendant to accomplish the near-miraculous feats that one might expect from a quasi-divine being. A divine ascendant may select one deific power at 2nd level, and an additional one at levels 5, 8, 11, 14, 17 and 20.

Divine Aura (Su): A divine ascendant can deeply affect mere mortals through their mere presence. As a swift action, the divine ascendant can project an aura with a radius of up to 5 feet per two divine ascendant class levels (rounded up), which persists for up to 1 round per divine ascendant class level, or until the divine ascendant dismisses the effect as a free action. The divine ascendant may choose to have their aura produce one of several effects, which may be negated with a successful Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the divine ascendantís class level + the divine ascendantís Charisma modifier). Creatures who succeed on a save against the divine ascendantís divine aura are immune to that effect of that divine ascendantís divine aura for 24 hours. Furthermore, the divine ascendant can choose to grant creatures immunity to a given use of their divine aura as a free action when they activate it.
The divine ascendant can activate their aura a number of times per day equal to 1 + their Charisma modifier. Additionally, the divine ascendant receives an additional daily use of their divine aura at level 7 and every three divine ascendant levels thereafter (10, 13, 16 and 19).
Fear: Creatures who fail their saves are shaken for as long as they remain within the auraís area of effect and for 1d6 rounds thereafter. Furthermore, if an individual who has failed their initial save is attacked by the divine ascendant, they must make an additional save or become frightened.
Resolve: Starting at level 10, the divine ascendant can instill powerful feelings of resolve in their allies while sapping it from their enemies. Allies of the divine ascendant within the area of the aura receive a +4 morale bonus to attack rolls and saving throws, while enemies of the divine ascendant must succeed on a Will save or take a -4 morale penalty on attack rolls and saving throws as long as they remain within the auraís area of effect.
Daze: Starting at level 16, the divine ascendant can overwhelm the minds of those around them, leaving them unable to do anything but stare at the divine ascendant in fascination. Creatures within the area of the divine ascendantís aura must make a Will save or be dazed as long as they remain within the auraís area of effect.

Divine Apotheosis (Ex): At 20th level, a divine ascendantís ascension nears completion, triggering a partial transformation into a divine being. This transformation has several benefits:
- The divine ascendantís hit points are increased to the maximum possible for their hit dice.
- The divine ascendant gains damage reduction 10/epic
- The divine ascendant becomes immortal and cannot die from natural causes. They do not age and any ability score penalties they have taken due to aging are reversed. Any bonuses the divine ascendant may have already accrued remain, however. Additionally, the divine ascendant no longer needs to eat, sleep or breathe.
Finally, the divine ascendant may select one of the following immunities:
Immutable Form: The divine ascendant is immune to polymorphing, petrification, or any other attack that alters its form. Any shape-altering powers the divine ascendant might have work normally on itself.
Indomitable Soul: The divine ascendant I not subject to energy drain, ability drain, or ability damage.
Unknowable Mind: The divine ascendant is immune to mind-affecting effects (charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns, and morale effects).

Affected creatures in the area must succeed on Fortitude saves or be picked up and thrown out, regardless of size. Such creatures suffer 1d6 points of damage for each 10 feet they travel. Creatures that make successful saves are not affected by the vortex for 24 hours. Creatures that fail their saves can attempt to reenter the area, but must attempt new saves.
Furthermore, the vortex damages creatures whose alignment on the moral (good-evil) axis is opposite the divine ascendantís. If the divine ascendantís moral alignment is neutral, the vortex does not damage any creatures. Affected creatures in the area must make Fortitude saves each round or suffer 1 point of damage per divine ascendant class level.

At 12th level, when touching water the divine ascendant gains the ability to automatically sense the location of anything within 10 feet per class level that is in contact with the same body of water.
At 18th level, the divine ascendant gains the ability to create a frothing wall of water 10 feet high in a cone 120 feet long as a standard action. The force of this water deals 4d6 points of subdual damage. Any creature or object that is not soundly secured is pushed violently to the outer edge of the area. If this forces the creature or object into a solid surface, it takes 8d6 points of damage. A creature holding onto a study object can make a DC 20 Strength check to avoid being moved. A creature not already holding onto such an object can make a DC 20 Reflex save or Swim check to grab one. A creature of Huge size or larger can make a DC 30 Strength check to dig in its feet and simply withstand the oncoming wave. A creature that fails any of these checks falls prone in addition to being swept away.
The divine ascendant can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + their Charisma modifier.

Energy Storm
Prerequisites: Divine ascendant level 11
Benefit: As a full round action, the divine ascendant can surround themselves with a vortex of energy (acid, cold, electricity, fire negative or positive), which extends from the divine ascendant in an emanation with a radius of 20 feet. Once the divine ascendant creates this vortex, they must spend a swift action each round to maintain it. This vortex imposes a miss chance on attacks with thrown weapons and projectiles equal to 5% per divine ascendant class level. Such attacks have a chance to fail if made by creatures inside the area, or targeted at creatures within the area, or if their paths take them through the area.
Energy storms that use acid, cold, electricity or fire energy deal 1 point of energy damage per divine ascendant class level each round.
Positive energy deals 1 point of damage per divine ascendant class level to undead creatures, and heals the same amount of damage on living creatures.
