Re: [3.5e Base Class] The Conceptualist (PEACH)
First half: Going through and typing this all up, I realized that myself. It was originally meant to be a per day basis, and the features to be random side abilities. It is worth noting that many uses cost only a single PI. May still tweak it, however. Perhaps full Conceptualist level+Int mod. Or +2X Int mod. Or something like that. I would like to keep them on a per day basis, however.

You can reselect your Focus allocation among Concepts each day, but not your choice of Circles. So there is still some consistency in abilities on a day-to-day basis, while still allowing for adaptability. I'll likely add a feat that allows you to once per day shift an amount of Focus equal to Int Mod or something similar.
As I said, I have the first three circles done already: War, Aid, and Mind. War has Blade, Shield, Dagger, Bow, Victory, Defeat, and Endurance as it's concepts. Dagger gives 1d6 SA damage per 2 focus allocated to it, rounded down. Victory gives a bonus to attack rolls for all allies within thirty feet equal to one fifth Focus allocated, rounded down. Aid includes Sanctuary as one of it's concepts, which allows the use of the spell once every ten minutes or so, with CL=Focus. They're varied, but things like that.
