    Dramaturgist

    The world is full of happiness and sadness, I merely show others the true depths of these emotions.

    A Dramaturgist is someone whose performances transcend the mortal and ordinary and become that of the muses. They can crush ideals through their performances, or push allies to new heights.

    The Face of Fortune (Ex): When entering the Dramaturgist class you choose to follow either the tragic route, or the comic route. A Dramaturgist creates a mask which becomes their new face, though it is a terrible rendition of a human face, resembling a Venetian mask more than anything else. Creating a mask costs 100 gp and takes 1 day.

    Tragic: You wear a mask that constantly cries a small stream of blood, bringing despair upon those who oppose you and even to those who know you. You gain +2 to intimidate, and may demoralize as a move action. This bonus improves to +4 at 3rd level, +6 at 5th level.

    Comic: You wear a mask of utter mirth, with an exaggerated smile permanently etched upon it, you bring joy upon those around you and even elation at your best. You gain +2 to Bluff and may feint in combat as a move action. This bonus improves to +4 at 3rd level, +6 at 5th level.

    The World’s a Stage (Su): A Dramaturgist is a master of the theatre, able to perform so stunningly that they need no other skills. Once per day per skill a Dramaturgist can replace a Diplomacy, Bluff, Intimidate, Gather Information or Handle Animal with a Perform (Act) check.

    Mask of Melody (Su): Your skill at acting in your mask improves to the point that it now grants you a +5 circumstance bonus. In addition you can now create such powerful performances that you gain both the inspire courage and inspire greatness abilities (as a bard, pg. 29 Player’s Handbook). If you already have these abilities levels in Dramaturgist stack with levels in the class that gave you them.

    And I Must Scream (Su): A Dramaturgist who has chosen the Tragic Face gains the ability to instil their fear and despair upon others. As a standard action once per day per point of Charisma modifier (minimum 1) you can crush someone completely and utterly. If they fail a will save (DC 10 + Dramaturgist level + Charisma Modifier) they are blinded, deafened, lose the ability to speak, and take 1 point of wisdom damage per round for a number of rounds equal to your charisma modifier.

    Virtuous Visage (Su): A Dramaturgist who has chosen the Comic Face gains the ability to inspire happiness amongst his allies. As a full round action once per day per point of Charisma modifier (minimum 1) you can put on a merry farce. This gives all allies who can hear it Freedom of Movement and Heart’s Ease (BoED p 100). This lasts as long as your performance continues, and takes a full round action each round to maintain.
