Re: Seiškona of the Iron Bands (In Need of Vestige Ideas)
Seiškona of the Iron Bands: Demonic Vestige (Xionn Fellblade, Saint of Murder)
The Fellblade is a powerful rakshasa lord who serves the dread imprisoned Souldrake. Eternally hunting the Jade Phoenix mages, the Fellblade is an implacable foe with the strength of the greatest of demon kind, on par with the lords of the pit themselves. Ancient and terrible, he is rumored to be the creature that came up with the very concept of murder. He appears as a black tiger-man with white stripes, glowing green eyes, and backwards hands in his natural shape, though sometimes he abandons that form to possess mortals. He wears terrifying black armor with symbols of death and damnation upon it and carries a massive crystalline greatsword called Azurewrath.
When free of the bonds of the Seidkona, he hunts ruthlessly for the souls of the Jade Phoenix mages so that he may trap them and use their absence to free his master. When imprisoned, the Seidkona should expect to be hunted by legions of Reth Dakaala and rakshasa loyal to Xionn and the Souldrake.
To summon the Fellblade and bind him to your will, you must commit the murder of an intelligent creature that you know personally, and do so for the purpose of advancing your own power. This murder must be committed during a new moon and under the blanket of night. The binder then takes the heart of the creature killed and stands in a wide circle of salt mixed with crushed glass with the iron bands at his feet. The binder then speaks the Fellblades True Name and eats the heart of the murdered victim. Clouds will form in the sky above the circle and rain down blood only within the circle, drenching the binder. The binder then snaps the bloody iron bands upon his arms and the blood absorbs into the iron, capturing the essence of the Fellblade into bonded slavery.
: The influence of the Fellblade causes the Seidkona to becoming incredibly callous and aloof, as well as casually cruel to any weaker then the binder. He suffers a -2 penalty on all Diplomacy checks while under the influence of the Fellblade.
: The Seidkona binding the Fellblade will display unsual paleness and black ragged stripes on his flesh, not unlike a tiger, in the reverse of the Fellblades colors, as well as green catlike eyes. When in combat, any blood spilled by the Seidkona will seemingly double in amount (at no additional damage to the victim).
: When the Fellblade is bound, violent murders happen more regular, as well as any violent crimes of passion (including suicides).
: Xionn Fellblade grants six vestiges to those who successfully bind him. The vestiges and their levels are detailed below.

Aspect of the Stalker:
Aspect of the Killer:
Aspect of the Slayer:
Aspect of the Magus:
Aspect of the Hunt grants you enhanced perception, natural weapons, and the abilities to read the minds of others.
Detect Thoughts: The Seidkona of the Iron Bands gains the ability to use detect thoughts as a spell-like ability (caster level is equal to his effective binder level) at will. Additionally, you gain a +5 bonus to Sense Motive checks due to your enhanced understanding of how people think.
Natural Weapons: The hands of the Seidkona of the Iron Bands reverse themselves and grow powerful claws. You gain two natural attacks with your claws, each dealing 1d6 points of damage (1d8 if you are Large, or 1d4 if you are Small) plus your Strength bonus. Your claws are natural weapons, so you are considered armed when attacking with them, and they can be affected by powers, spells, and effects that enhance or improve natural. You can choose to deal nonlethal damage with your claws, taking the standard -4 penalty on your attack roll. Your claws work just like the natural weapons of many monsters. You can make an attack with one claw or a full attack with two claws at your normal attack bonus, replacing your normal attack routine. You take no penalties for two-weapon fighting, and neither attack is a secondary attack. If your base attack bonus is +6 or higher, you do not gain any additional attacksyou simply have two claw attacks at your normal attack bonus.
Gilded Speach: You gain the silver tongue of the rakshasa, gaining a +1 profane bonus per effective binder level you possess to Bluff, Diplomacy, and Sense Motive skills. Additionally, lies you make will not register to a zone of truth or discern lies spell.
Aspect of Death's Hand:
Aspect of the Magus allows you to tap in the magical powers of the rakshasa race to a degree.
Eldritch Presence: You gain a +6 profane bonus to your Charisma score, and gain a +10 bonus to Spellcraft, Use Magical Device, and Knowledge (arcana) checks. These skills may be used even untrained.
Sorcererous Blood: You may select and use any five of the following spells as a spell-like ability once every 5 rounds: detect magic, light, mage hand, read magic, charm person, magic missile, shield, grease, color spray, true strike, fear, hypnotic pattern, darkness, silent image, acid arrow, suggestion, fireball, shadow evocation, shadow conjuration, orb of (energy, choose type), lightning bolt, fly, wall of ice, lesser globe of invulnerability, black tentacles, enervation, and haste. The Seidkona of the Iron Bands may change what spells he's allotted when he binds this vestige. You have a caster level equal to your effective binder level, and saves are Charisma based.
Eldritch Blast: You may harm an opponent with eldritch energy in the form of a blast of arcane power. This blast may be fired once per round as a standard action and inflicts 4d6 points of damage upon a successful ranged attack. The range on this attack is 30ft. This damage increases by 1d6 for every 5th effective binder level you possess. He may also use this as part of a melee attack, adding his eldritch blast damage to an attack as a standard action.
: Change references to Fae creatures to Outsiders (Evil) in the class.**
