    Default [3.5] A... flavourful base class: The Stoner

    So, this began as an attempt by me and my friend to make a class that united the mechanics of Pact Magic and of Incarnum, which we think are two well-designed and fun mechanics. So, basically, we wanted to make vestiges with essentia. And then our usual wackiness kicked in and we somehow thought that making the class a drug addict would be a good thing. So, yeah. We think it's T2, have fun.

    The Stoner


    Fluff coming soon, as soon as I stop laughing at the thought of having to write some fluff for it.
    Making a Stoner
    Abilities: Charisma determines the save DCs of most of the stoner's abilities. Constitution helps the character improve her abilities and survival chances.
    Races: Halflings were the first acolytes of this class. Its use has spread to many other smaller races such as gnomes, but also to elves. It is not unheard of humans to take levels in this class, too.
    Alignment: Stoners can be of any alignment. The class, however requires a certain open-mindedness, so many stoners usually veer toward chaotic alignments.
    Starting gold: 4d4x10 gp.
    Starting age: as Barbarian.

    Hit Die: d8

    Class skills (4+Int per level): Autohypnosis, Bluff, Craft, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Heal, Knowledge (Dungeoneering, Local, Nature), Perform (any), Profession, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Survival

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Stoners are proficient with all simple weapons and with light armors (but not shields).

    Blends: At first level, the stoner acquires the ability to craft powerful herb mixtures. Blends provide their benefits only to their creators; if another creature consumes them, she must make a Fortitude save (at the standard DC) to avoid being dazed for 1d4 minutes per stoner level. To gain the benefits of any blends, you need to have one hand free to hold them unless otherwise specified. It takes ten minutes to craft all the blends the Stoner can make, and they last for one day (even if they are not consumed). During the process, the Stoner may add spices to the blends (see below). If not otherwise specified, all abilities have a range fixed at 60 feet. A Blend is a Supernatural ability unless otherwise specified. A Stoner may only have one Blend active at any given time (but see More Flavours below). Unless otherwise noted, all abilities obtained through blends are supernatural.

    Spices: At first level, a stoner learns to build and maintain a secret stash where she grows spices. She can use the spices to empower his regular blends. As she gains levels, her secret stash increases in size and can accommodate more and better herbs. A stoner can not add to a single blend more spices than her Constitution modifier.

    More flavours (Ex): Starting at fifth level, and then again at 10th, 15th, and 20th level, you can use one more blend simultaneously.

    Strong lungs (Ex): You gain a +2 competence bonus on saving throws against sickening and nauseating effects.

    Blend enrichments (Ex): For every blend you are able to use simultaneously, you can choose to have one of these bonuses. You can select the same effect more than once, and they stack.
    • +2 luck to hit
    • +4 luck damage
    • +2 luck AC
    • +1 luck saving throws
    • +10 luck to all speed modes
    • +1 enhancement to any stat


    Unleash the Smoke (Ex): As a full-round action, you can use up one of your daily blends to gain its Ultimate Power. You may not regain the benefits granted by that blend until the next day (but see the Feat section below). You are still under the normal benefits of the blend while you are using this power.

    Lungs of Steel (Ex): Whenever you would be sickened, you are not. Whenever you would be nauseated, you are considered sickened instead.

    Mistwalker (Su): As a standard action, you can tread on the mist around you, as per the Air Walk spell. The duration is limited to a number of rounds equal to your Con modifier. You can only use this ability while standing on solid ground.

    Change of Tastes: Once per day, the stoner can substitute an active blend for another. This operation takes 10 minutes.

    Chain Smoker (Ex): You gain an extra standard action that you can only use on abilities granted by your blends.

    Adamantine Lungs (Ex): The stoner's lungs become so resilient that they hedge out many harmful effects. You gain immunity to nauseating and sickening effects. You no longer need to breathe air, as long as there is a source of smoke nearby (your blends count for this purpose).

    Smoke Tornado (Ex): Once per day, you can use your Unleash the smoke power simultaneously on all your active blends. The blends are renewed at the start of your next turn.

    First level blends

    Pipeweed
    • Cover: While this blend is active, you gain a +4 shield bonus to AC.
    • Rejuvenation: By concentrating on your blend (a standard action), you gain fast healing equal to the spices mixed. At 7th level, this use requires a move action. At 10th level, it becomes a swift action. At 13th level, you don't need any action anymore.
    • Deflection: You gain a deflection bonus to AC equal to the spices mixed in the blend.
    • Challenging puff: As a standard action, you can force a creature to only target you for one round. The creature can resist this effect with a successful Will save. This is a mind-affecting compulsion effect.
    • UP: You return to full hit points, and are cured of the following conditions: deaf, shaken, dazzled, fatigued, disease. At 13th level, you are cured of poison, blindness, stun, exhaustion, frightening. At 16th level, you are cured of daze, any ability damage, panic, confusion, polymorph. You can unleash this ability even if there is an adverse condition (such as stunning) that would restrict you from acting.


    Howling Trip
    • Slick moves: The stoner can see handles for moving on normally impossible places, and can use them just fine. You gain a climb and swim speed equal to half of your land speed. You gain a bonus on Tumble checks equal to 3+3 for each spice point you mix in this blend, and you can use this skill untrained. At 7th level, you also gain a fly speed with average maneuverability. At 10th level, the maneuverability improves to good and all speed modes gained are now equal to your land speed. At 13th level, you also gain a burrow speed and can choose to leave a tunnel behind, if you so desire.
    • Slick techniques: At 7th level, you gain the benefits of the Dodge and Mobility feats. At 10th level, you gain the benefit of the Spring Attack feat. At 13th level, you gain the benefit of the Bounding Assault feat.
    • Way of the Hedgehog: Whenever you attack with a light manufactured or other "finessable" weapon, you deal 1d4 bonus sonic damage for each spice you have mixed into the blend At 4th level, this bonus improves to 1d6 per spices mixed. At 10th level, it becomes 1d8. At 16th level, it becomes 1d12.
    • UP: You move quadruple your speed. Every creature you pass through using your Tumble skill takes 1d12 sonic damage per stoner level. Every creature you move near using your Tumble skill takes 1d6 sonic damage per stoner level. A successful Reflex saving throw halves the damage. Creatures who fail the saving throw are also deafened for 1 minute. No creature can be affected by this effect more than once. This ability allows you to move at normal speed while tumbling. You gain a gold piece for every enemy that you drop.


    Blacktar
    • Choking aura: You emanate an aura of thick stench with a radius of 20 feet per spices mixed. All enemies in the area must make a Fortitude save every round or be sickened as long as they remain in the area. Exiting and reentering the area forces a new saving throw. The sickening effect cannot stack until 7th level.
    • Stickphlegm: When the stoner says this word, he spits a ball of sticky goo toards a target within his choking aura. This action requires a ranged touch attack. If it hits, the target moves at half speed and suffers a penalty to Dexterity equal to 1d6 plus the amount of spices mixed into the blend (it can't bring the enemy to 0 Dex). This effect allows no saving throw, and lasts one minute. If the target has a source of water in reach, she can free herself of this effect as a full-round action. At 7th level, the stickphlegm can ricochet to another enemy within 30 feet. At 13th level, the stickphlegm hits all targets within 30 feet of the original target. You still have to roll to hit each one of them, and you have a -4 penalty to hit secondary targets.
    • Octopus smoke: As an immediate action, you can blow hot, greasy smoke into the face of an enemy within your choking aura. The target takes a penalty to her attack rolls equal to the amount of spices mixed in the blend, which lasts until the start of your next round. A successful Fortitude save halves this effect.
    • UP: The stoner inspires back all the tar he previously emanated. You deal negative levels equal to the spices mixed into the blend to all enemies who are currently sickened because of your choking aura (duration as the enervation spell). A successful Fortitude save halves the negative levels. For each negative level bestowed, you gain 5 temporary hit points (maximum equal to your normal hit points) that last 1 minute. The negative levels caused by this effect cannot drain a creature to death: a creature can't gain more negative levels from Blacktar than her HD minus 1.


    Second level blends

    Show
    Pumpkin extract (cigar)
    • Inspire powers: you may only have one of the three inspire powers active at any time. Switching between them is a standard action. At 10th level, it becomes a move action. At 13th level it becomes a swift action. At 16th, it becomes an immediate action. At 4h, 10th, and 16th level, you are considered to have one more spice mixed in this blend. These additional spices do not count against your cap.

    • Hunting high and low: At 13th level, as a swift action, you can increase or decrease the size of a willing creature by one step. At 16th level, you can change up to two sizes. Only one creature may be affected by this ability at any time.
    • Scent rhapsody: You can use the fascinate ability as a bard of your level (the DC is the usual stoner one). At 7th level, you can use the suggestion ability as well. At 19th level, you can use the mass suggestion ability.
    • UP: Every ally that can smell your extract replenishes her energies, as if she had rested for eight hours. This allows spellcasters to regain spells. You can only use this power once every 24 hours. No character may use this ability to circumvent daily limits (such as spellcasting).


    Sourleaf
    • Trap mastery: You gain the rogue's trapfinding ability and you can substitute the Search check with a stoner level+spice check. You can use the same roll to disable any trap you find. You can never collect the trap.
    • Smoke of revealing: This smoke coalesces in yellow, translucent letters that describe the properties of the target magic item (as the Identify spell). At 7th level, the smoke can show you the way to a specific item (as per the Locate Object spell). At 13th level, it shows invisible or hard to see creatures (as per the Faerie Fire spell, but with a radius equal to 5 feet x spices mixed).

      Hide everywhere: At 13th you gain Hide in Plain Sight, as the assassin class.
    • Umbral weapon (Su): You can craft any kind of weapon out of your smoke. It is wielded by you when it appears, and it disintegrates if you drop or lose it. It has an enhancement bonus equal to the spices mixed, and you may opt to choose a specific bonus (e.g. Flaming, Holy) in place of the standard bonus. You can make a ranged weapon along with its projectiles if you so desire. The weapon deals its normal damage, plus 1 Strength damage. If you use this ability to create a siege weapon, your first attack roll that hits is an automatic critical hit.
    • Darkness rising (Su): This ability works like the Blacklight spell (SpC 30). You can only have one effect active at any time. This ability is considered to have an effective spell level equal to the spices mixed for the purpose of interacting with other light/darkness effects.
    • UP: You can cause a target to be imprisoned in another dimension, as per the Maze spell. The imprisonment can last a maximum of rounds equal to the spices mixed.

    (Un)Holy Smoke
    Special: to craft this blend, you need to include a special filter called Diamond Filter, which is made of diamond and costs 1,000 gp. You don't consume this filter unless you use its greater power, see relevant text.
    • (Rebuke)Turn Undead: You gain the Turn/Rebuke Undead class feature, usable 3+spices mixed times a day. You cannot destroy or control undead with this ability.

    • A Breeze of Life and Death (Su): You can exhale a 30 feet burst of negative and positive energy. All enemies within this area take 1d6 damage per spices mixed, plus 1 per stoner level (Will save for half). All allies are healed the same amount. You may not heal more creatures than you are harming. Once you have used this ability, you may not do it again until the end of your next round.
    • UP: You can return to life a creature that has not been dead for more than one round per spices mixed. This ability works as the Raise Dead spell, but the creature returns to life with half hit points and is under the effects of a Fly spell (CL equal to stoner level). Moreover, the creature emits light in a 20 feet radius. This ability works normally on monkeys, but it causes them to spontaneously explode one round later. If you use this power to raise anything that is not a monkey, you use up your Diamond Filter.


    Purple 'shroom
    • Fume-shrooms: As a standard action, you can coalesce your smoke into a fume-shroom that lasts one minute. This shroom has hit points equal to your Stoner level, and an AC of 11+your Cha modifier; it can not move and dissipates if it is moved, but it can float. As a move action, once per round, you can command the shroom to shoot a 30 ft. line of purple cloud that deals 3d6 acid damage. For every two Stoner levels above 7th, you create an additional fume-shroom when you use this ability. All shrooms created must be within 5 feet of another. If you create the fume-shrooms a second time while they're still active, the previous ones disappear.
    • Glitterfungus: You can craft a tiny fungus that emits a faint light. The fungus shrieks if a hostile creature enters the area around him (as the Alarm spell). The fungus cannot move and disappears after 12 hours, or if it is moved. At 16th level, as a standard action, you may cause the fungus to inflate, float to the position you desire and subsequently explodonate. Treat the effect as a Scintillating Pattern spell.
    • Infected mushroom: As a standard action, you can touch an enemy to bestow a disease of your choice on him. The initial saving throw DC is equal to your standard DC. At 10th level, you may choose to bestow a poison instead. The poison deals 1d4 Con primary damage plus one point per spices mixed, which is repeated after one minute.
    • UP: You become a spore swarm. This effect works like the Gaseous Form spell.


    Blowpipe
    This blend is an actual blowpipe. The stoner sets it on fire when she starts using it.

The sensor may move up to a distance of 1,000 feet times the spices mixed. You may not replace this sensor until the next day.
    • Avalanche smoke: You can breathe a 120 feet long line that deals 1d6 damage per spices mixed. Every creature included in the area, starting with the closest one, must make a Reflex save or be blown back for 10 feet times the spices mixed.

This effect causes a real avalanche of enemies.

    • Spirit horse: When friends are around you, they seem to be growing evanescent horse limbs. Every ally that inhales your smoke gains a enhancement bonus to all her speed modes equal to 10 feet times the spices mixed.
    • Geronimo: Your shout pushes opponents away from you and knocks them down. Creatures caught within a 30 feet cone must succeed a special Bull Rush attempt (the stoner's bonus is equal to his stoner level + spices mixed). Creatures who fail this check are pushed back to the edge of the area. At 13th level, they also fall prone. At 16th level, they are also staggered for one round. At 19th level, they are also dazed for one round.
    • Magic umbrella: The clouds of your calumet coalesce above your heads, and it starts to rain. The rain gives you SR equal to 11 plus your stoner level. At 13th, 16th, and 19th level, the spell resistance applies to an additional ally.

    Fighting fog
    • Solidity: An area around you with a radius of 5 feet every four stoner levels is filled with dense fog. Every square counts twice for every movement.

      • Suckerpunches: Whenever you are hit by a foe, any elementals in reach of the attacker can make a sudden attack against him, after the attack is resolved.
    • UP: All the elementals explodonate. The effect of this Ultimate Power depends on the "punch" variant active at the time. The elementals may not move or be repositioned in the round you use this ability. No creature can be affected by this UP more than once per day.
      • Hellpunches: every elemental busts into hellfire. Its explosion covers all the area it could reach, and deals 5 untyped and 5 fire damage per Stoner level (Reflex half). No creature can be affected by this ability more than once. The affected surfaces remain on fire for 24 hours, dealing 1d6 plus stoner level hellfire damage to all creatures who enter the area.
      • Darkpunches: draw all possible lines between all elementals and you. Every foe caught in one of these lines takes a penalty of 8 points to each ability score (minimum 1, Reflex half). This penalty lasts one minute.
      • Suckerpunches: every elemental makes a full attack against each foe you threaten.


    Brown's mixture
    • Stochastics: You blow some smoke at one enemy as an immediate action. This smoke defies physics laws, changing the direction the enemy starts moving in. The enemy makes a Reflex save. On success, nothing happens and the enemy moves in the intended direction. On failure, the enemy can't move but is instead thrown in a random direction (roll 1d8) for a number of feet equal to the enemy's move speed, or until it cannot move anymore (due to an obstacle, for example).
    • Entropy battery: As a standard action, you can remove a number of adjacent 5 ft cubes of nonliving solid matter from their location, storing them on an extradimensional space in your blend. You can retrieve them as a move action, every cube in a location you desire within 30 feet. The maximum number of cubes you can store and retrieve is equal to the spices mixed.
    • Spell conductor: As an immediate action a number of times per day equal to the spices mixed, when a magic user attempts to cast a spell (or the equivalent of), you may redirect the effect. Make a level check against a DC of 11+CL. You gain a bonus to this check equal to the spices invested. If you are successful, the target of the magic becomes anyone you choose. If the target is not valid (such as the case of Personal range spells), the magic simply fails.
    • UP: An area of 1 mile around you is in wild magic for 1 round per spices invested.


    Tea leaves
    • Ghostly granny: This ability works just like the Spirit guide ability of the Blowpipe. If you mix two spices, the sensor can also duplicate the effects of Clairvoyance/Clairaudience. If you mix three, it can also replicate the effect of Psionic Scry. If you mix four, it can replicate Prying Eyes. If you mix six, any sensor you have is treated as having True Seeing.
    • Bill's compass: You can replicate the effect of a Locate Creature spell. If you mix 4 spices, you can also mimic Find the Path.
    • Space rainbow: For each spice mixed, you gain 10% concealment. You may never have more than 50% concealment. This is an illusion effect, and as such it can be negated by True Seeing and similar effects.
    • Elephant hide: You gain an insight bonus to AC equal to the spices mixed.
    • Potion of superiority: Every weapon you use is considered to have the Bane property against any enemy you encounter.
    • UP: You gain the benefits of a feat of your choice for 24 hours. You must meet the prerequisites for this feat.


    Sixth level blends
    Spoiler
    Show
    Cigarette DMC-42
    • Temporal throttle: Once per day for each spice mixed, you make reality go faster for you and your allies. Every round for five rounds, every ally gains a cumulative +1 to attack rolls, AC, Reflex saves, and one more attack whenever they do a full attack (max 5). These benefits don't stack with Haste and similar effects.
    • Temporal brakes: Once per day for each spice mixed, you slow reality for your enemies. The first round, enemies must make a Will save or lose their swift actions for that round. The second round, they must save or lose their swift and move actions. The third round, they must save or lose their standard actions. The fourth round, they must save or lose their swift, move, and standard actions. The fifth round, they must save or be paralyzed for 1 round.
    • Gear change: Once per day for each spice mixed, for five rounds, you may gain the benefits of a single magic item of your choice. There are, however, the following restrictions: the item must not cost more than your most expensive item, and the item must not be expendable or have charges; at the end of the five rounds, any ongoing effect caused by this item vanishes.
    • Wheel of time: Once per day, you may stop time (as the Time Stop spell) for a number of effective rounds equal to the spices mixed.
    • UP: Time goes back one round, as per the Time Regression power.


    Mindcopter
    • Bamboo Matrix: In a volume with a radius of 20 feet per spices mixed, the space effectively becomes two-dimensional. Everything is shifted to the same altitude of the stoner, on a plane perpendicular to the stoner's gravity. This negates burrow and fly abilities, and renders any obstacle such as a wall, or a fog, useless. Creatures within the Bamboo Matrix may share the same space without penalty, and movement in the area does not provoke attacks of opportunity. You may suppress and reactivate this ability as a free action once per round.
    • Breeze Knight: You gain a bonus on Initiative checks equal to the spices mixed.
    • Oblivion Icarus: You may emulate the power of the Gate spell. You don't ever pay XP, but if you would have, then you have to burn a special offering made of regular potatoes, worth 5,000 gp. One potato weighs 1 lb. and is worth 1 cp. The DM may, at his option, allow a discount on the potato price. This has the only effect of requiring even more potatoes to complete the ritual.
    • Blackmarsh Signature: You may force two souls to switch bodies. This effect works similarly to the Mind Switch power, and has a duration equal to the spices mixed in rounds.
    • Mountain Filth: Roll all the dice. The d20 is used for a ranged touch attack roll against an enemy; the d4 represents the effect bestowed on your enemy.
      {table=head]Number Rolled|Effect
      1|1d6 Str penalty, 1d8 Dex penalty, 1d12 Con penalty, 1d100: 25% chance of daze
      2|1d6 Int penalty, 1d8 Wis penalty, 1d12 Cha penalty, 1d100: 75% of confusion
      3|1d6 negative levels, 1d8 penalty to checks, 1d12 penalty to AC, 1d100 damage
      4|1d6 temporary HP, 1d8 as prismatic spray, 1d12x5 penalty to all speed modes, 1d100 polymorph (use reincarnate table)[/table]
      The effects based on the d100 last 1 round, while the others (if not resolved instantaneously) last 1 minute.
    • UP: You may choose other blends, and reallocate your spices, instantly. If you do so, you may craft one less blend than the amount you have active now. Blends exhausted because their UP has already been used are not considered active. Any spices in the Mindcopter blend are lost.


    Hookah of the Almighty
    • Facets of the Six: You may select one ability from the following table if you invest one Spice into this Blend; at 3, 6, 10, 15, 21 spices mixed, you gain one additional ability from the following list:
      • Chant of blood: Immunity to fire damage, death effects, and stunning.
      • Chant of freedom: Immunity to electricity damage, mind-affecting abilities and prismatic effects.
      • Chant of darkness: Immunity to cold damage, critical hits, sneak attacks, aligned spells, and polymorph.
      • Chant of renewal: Immunity to acid damage, poison, disease, and SR (15+Stoner level).
      • Chant of glory: Immunity to force effects, negative energy effects, ability damage and ability drain.
      • Chant of truth: Immunity to sonic damage, divinations, blindness, deafness.
    • Charred blessing: Pour in your hookah a mixture of herbs that costs 100 gp. Smoke the hookah for two days straight. After that, the next time you would die, you are instead teleported to your hookah, and your body reforms from its smoke. If at any time you stop having the Hookah as one of your active blends, you lose the benefits of this ability.
    • Power Word Infuse (Ex): Target one creature per two spices mixed. If the creature has more than 100 hp, its hp are halved. If it has less than 100 hp, it is healed twice its current hp. If you are within an antimagic area and you successfully damage a creature, you heal the damage you did.
    • UP: By the power of thy hookah, you are able to empty it all at once. A god of your choice sees this, and grants you a Miracle as an award. You have the same limitations as normal, and you must pay the regular XP cost if it's needed.

    This is hilarious and at the same time serious enough to be played. Nice.

    I think the dazed condition lasts way too long. 1d4 rounds would be a hefty enough penalty let alone minutes (and on top of that minutes per level). Especially considering it is just a secondary effect.

    A question about the blends though. Do you gain all of the benefits listed under each one or do you have to choose which one? I actually think this would affect the tier of the class (with all effects active it would be tier 2 while with only 1 I think it would be a high tier 3).

    Edit> I guess you didn't ask for a peach, but didn't catch that. Hope you don't mind. Sweet class though.

    You gain all benefits. It's very similar to vestiges.

    Yeah, minutes is a lot. We figured that if you try to smoke that all you'll get is a very long trip...

    So, this began as an attempt by me and my friend to make a class that united the mechanics of Pact Magic and of Incarnum, which we think are two well-designed and fun mechanics. So, basically, we wanted to make vestiges with essentia. And then our usual wackiness kicked in and we somehow thought that making the class a drug addict would be a good thing. So, yeah. We think it's T2, have fun.

    The Stoner


    Fluff coming soon, as soon as I stop laughing at the thought of having to write some fluff for it.
    Making a Stoner
    Abilities: Charisma determines the save DCs of most of the stoner's abilities. Constitution helps the character improve her abilities and survival chances.
    Races: Halflings were the first acolytes of this class. Its use has spread to many other smaller races such as gnomes, but also to elves. It is not unheard of humans to take levels in this class, too.
    Alignment: Stoners can be of any alignment. The class, however requires a certain open-mindedness, so many stoners usually veer toward chaotic alignments.
    Starting gold: 4d4x10 gp.
    Starting age: as Barbarian.

    Hit Die: d8

    Class skills (4+Int per level): Autohypnosis, Bluff, Craft, Diplomacy, Gather Information, Heal, Knowledge (Dungeoneering, Local, Nature), Perform (any), Profession, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Survival

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Stoners are proficient with all simple weapons and with light armors (but not shields).

    Blends: At first level, the stoner acquires the ability to craft powerful herb mixtures. Blends provide their benefits only to their creators; if another creature consumes them, she must make a Fortitude save (at the standard DC) to avoid being dazed for 1d4 minutes per stoner level. To gain the benefits of any blends, you need to have one hand free to hold them unless otherwise specified. It takes ten minutes to craft all the blends the Stoner can make, and they last for one day (even if they are not consumed). During the process, the Stoner may add spices to the blends (see below). If not otherwise specified, all abilities have a range fixed at 60 feet. A Blend is a Supernatural ability unless otherwise specified.

    Spices: At first level, a stoner learns to build and maintain a secret stash where she grows spices. She can use the spices to empower his regular blends. As she gains levels, her secret stash increases in size and can accommodate more and better herbs. A stoner can not add to a single blend more spices than her Constitution modifier.

    More flavours (Ex): Starting at fifth level, and then again at 10th, 15th, and 20th level, you can use one more blend simultaneously.

    Strong lungs (Ex): You gain a +2 competence bonus on saving throws against sickening and nauseating effects.

    Blend enrichments (Ex): For every blend you are able to use simultaneously, you can choose to have one of these bonuses. You can select the same effect more than once, and they stack.
    • +2 luck to hit
    • +4 luck damage
    • +2 luck AC
    • +1 luck saving throws
    • +10 luck to all speed modes
    • +1 enhancement to any stat


    Unleash the Smoke (Ex): As a full-round action, you can use up one of your daily blends to gain its Ultimate Power. You may not regain the benefits granted by that blend until the next day (but see the Feat section below). You are still under the normal benefits of the blend while you are using this power.

    Lungs of Steel (Ex): Whenever you would be sickened, you are not. Whenever you would be nauseated, you are considered sickened instead.

    Mistwalker (Su): As a standard action, you can tread on the mist around you, as per the Air Walk spell. The duration is limited to a number of rounds equal to your Con modifier. You can only use this ability while standing on solid ground.

    Change of Tastes: Once per day, the stoner can substitute an active blend for another. This operation takes 10 minutes.

    Chain Smoker (Ex): You gain an extra standard action that you can only use on abilities granted by your blends.

    Adamantine Lungs (Ex): The stoner's lungs become so resilient that they hedge out many harmful effects. You gain immunity to nauseating and sickening effects. You no longer need to breathe air, as long as there is a source of smoke nearby (your blends count for this purpose).

    Smoke Tornado (Ex): Once per day, you can use your Unleash the smoke power simultaneously on all your active blends. The blends are renewed at the start of your next turn.

    First level blends
    Spoiler
    Show
    Pipeweed
    • Cover: While this blend is active, you gain a +4 shield bonus to AC.
    • Rejuvenation: By concentrating on your blend (a standard action), you gain fast healing equal to the spices mixed. At 7th level, this use requires a move action. At 10th level, it becomes a swift action. At 13th level, you don't need any action anymore.
    • Deflection: You gain a deflection bonus to AC equal to the spices mixed in the blend.
    • Challenging puff: As a standard action, you can force a creature to only target you for one round. The creature can resist this effect with a successful Will save. This is a mind-affecting compulsion effect.
    • UP: You return to full hit points, and are cured of the following conditions: deaf, shaken, dazzled, fatigued, disease. At 13th level, you are cured of poison, blindness, stun, exhaustion, frightening. At 16th level, you are cured of daze, any ability damage, panic, confusion, polymorph. You can unleash this ability even if there is an adverse condition (such as stunning) that would restrict you from acting.


    Howling Trip
    • Slick moves: The stoner can see handles for moving on normally impossible places, and can use them just fine. You gain a climb and swim speed equal to half of your land speed. You gain a bonus on Tumble checks equal to 3+3 for each spice point you mix in this blend, and you can use this skill untrained. At 7th level, you also gain a fly speed with average maneuverability. At 10th level, the maneuverability improves to good and all speed modes gained are now equal to your land speed. At 13th level, you also gain a burrow speed and can choose to leave a tunnel behind, if you so desire.
    • Slick techniques: At 7th level, you gain the benefits of the Dodge and Mobility feats. At 10th level, you gain the benefit of the Spring Attack feat. At 13th level, you gain the benefit of the Bounding Assault feat.
    • Way of the Hedgehog: Whenever you attack with a light manufactured or other "finessable" weapon, you deal 1d4 bonus sonic damage for each spice you have mixed into the blend At 4th level, this bonus improves to 1d6 per spices mixed. At 10th level, it becomes 1d8. At 16th level, it becomes 1d12.
    • UP: You move quadruple your speed. Every creature you pass through using your Tumble skill takes 1d12 sonic damage per stoner level. Every creature you move near using your Tumble skill takes 1d6 sonic damage per stoner level. A successful Reflex saving throw halves the damage. Creatures who fail the saving throw are also deafened for 1 minute. No creature can be affected by this effect more than once. This ability allows you to move at normal speed while tumbling. You gain a gold piece for every enemy that you drop.


    Blacktar
    • Choking aura: You emanate an aura of thick stench with a radius of 20 feet per spices mixed. All enemies in the area must make a Fortitude save every round or be sickened as long as they remain in the area. Exiting and reentering the area forces a new saving throw. The sickening effect cannot stack until 7th level.
    • Stickphlegm: When the stoner says this word, he spits a ball of sticky goo toards a target within his choking aura. This action requires a ranged touch attack. If it hits, the target moves at half speed and suffers a penalty to Dexterity equal to 1d6 plus the amount of spices mixed into the blend (it can't bring the enemy to 0 Dex). This effect allows no saving throw, and lasts one minute. If the target has a source of water in reach, she can free herself of this effect as a full-round action. At 7th level, the stickphlegm can ricochet to another enemy within 30 feet. At 13th level, the stickphlegm hits all targets within 30 feet of the original target. You still have to roll to hit each one of them, and you have a -4 penalty to hit secondary targets.
    • Octopus smoke: As an immediate action, you can blow hot, greasy smoke into the face of an enemy within your choking aura. The target takes a penalty to her attack rolls equal to the amount of spices mixed in the blend, which lasts until the start of your next round. A successful Fortitude save halves this effect.
    • UP: The stoner inspires back all the tar he previously emanated. You deal negative levels equal to the spices mixed into the blend to all enemies who are currently sickened because of your choking aura (duration as the enervation spell). A successful Fortitude save halves the negative levels. For each negative level bestowed, you gain 5 temporary hit points (maximum equal to your normal hit points) that last 1 minute. The negative levels caused by this effect cannot drain a creature to death: a creature can't gain more negative levels from Blacktar than her HD minus 1.


    Second level blends
    Spoiler
    Show
    Pumpkin extract (cigar)
    • Inspire powers: you may only have one of the three inspire powers active at any time. Switching between them is a standard action. At 10th level, it becomes a move action. At 13th level it becomes a swift action. At 16th, it becomes an immediate action. At 4h, 10th, and 16th level, you are considered to have one more spice mixed in this blend. These additional spices do not count against your cap.
      • Inspire happiness: All allies that can smell your extract gain a morale bonus to attack rolls equal to the spices mixed, and a morale bonus to saving throws equal to half the spices mixed.
      • Inspire power: All allies that can smell your extract gain a morale bonus to damage rolls equal to the spices mixed, and a morale bonus to all opposed checks equal to half the spices mixed.
      • Inspire progression: All allies that can smell your extract gain a morale bonus to skill checks and ability checks equal to half the spices mixed.
    • Hunting high and low: At 13th level, as a swift action, you can increase or decrease the size of a willing creature by one step. At 16th level, you can change up to two sizes. Only one creature may be affected by this ability at any time.
    • Scent rhapsody: You can use the fascinate ability as a bard of your level (the DC is the usual stoner one). At 7th level, you can use the suggestion ability as well. At 19th level, you can use the mass suggestion ability.
    • UP: Every ally that can smell your extract replenishes her energies, as if she had rested for eight hours. This allows spellcasters to regain spells. You can only use this power once every 24 hours. No character may use this ability to circumvent daily limits (such as spellcasting).


    Sourleaf
    • Trap mastery: You gain the rogue's trapfinding ability and you can substitute the Search check with a stoner level+spice check. You can use the same roll to disable any trap you find. You can never collect the trap.
    • Smoke of revealing: This smoke coalesces in yellow, translucent letters that describe the properties of the target magic item (as the Identify spell). At 7th level, the smoke can show you the way to a specific item (as per the Locate Object spell). At 13th level, it shows invisible or hard to see creatures (as per the Faerie Fire spell, but with a radius equal to 5 feet x spices mixed).
    • Rerolls: you gain a number of rerolls per day equal to the spices you mixed. You cannot use more than one reroll per round.
    • Quaal's lemon: Once per day, you can grow a lemon tree that's 10 feet tall per spices mixed. It must appear on a surface that can support it. The tree fades away after one hour.
    • UP: Every enemy within 20 feet per spice mixed must make a Will save or do nothing but repeat the actions it did in the previous round (As per the Deja Vu psionic power).


    The Shadow
    • Shadowsmoke: You can create shadow images of yourself out of your smoke, as the Mirror Image spell. You can create as many duplicates as the amount of spices mixed. If a duplicate is destroyed, you can recreate it as a move action.
    • Concealing smoke: You gain an enhancement bonus to Hide equal to half your stoner level plus twice the spices mixed.
      Hide everywhere: At 13th you gain Hide in Plain Sight, as the assassin class.
    • Umbral weapon (Su): You can craft any kind of weapon out of your smoke. It is wielded by you when it appears, and it disintegrates if you drop or lose it. It has an enhancement bonus equal to the spices mixed, and you may opt to choose a specific bonus (e.g. Flaming, Holy) in place of the standard bonus. You can make a ranged weapon along with its projectiles if you so desire. The weapon deals its normal damage, plus 1 Strength damage. If you use this ability to create a siege weapon, your first attack roll that hits is an automatic critical hit.
    • Darkness rising (Su): This ability works like the Blacklight spell (SpC 30). You can only have one effect active at any time. This ability is considered to have an effective spell level equal to the spices mixed for the purpose of interacting with other light/darkness effects.
    • UP: You can cause a target to be imprisoned in another dimension, as per the Maze spell. The imprisonment can last a maximum of rounds equal to the spices mixed.

    Special: to craft this blend, you need to include a special filter called Diamond Filter, which is made of diamond and costs 1,000 gp. You don't consume this filter unless you use its greater power, see relevant text.
    • (Rebuke)Turn Undead: You gain the Turn/Rebuke Undead class feature, usable 3+spices mixed times a day. You cannot destroy or control undead with this ability.
    • Rastafari Weapon: Any attack you make is considered to have the same alignment you have for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction, regeneration or similar abilities.
    • Influence the mass: The stoner can deliver a rousing speech to the audience by speaking freely about freedom for one minute. Under these circumstances, you gain a competence bonus on Bluff checks equal to twice the spices mixed.
    • Heavenly gift (Su): You can summon a celestial monkey at will. You may only have one at any time. The monkey lasts for one minute. When the monkey dies, it emits a 5 feet burst of positive or negative energy (your choice) equal to spices mixed d6 points of damage +1 per stoner level (Will save for half).
    • A Breeze of Life and Death (Su): You can exhale a 30 feet burst of negative and positive energy. All enemies within this area take spices mixed d6 points of damage +1 per stoner level (Will save for half). All allies are healed spices mixed d6 points of damage +1 per stoner level. You may not heal more creatures than you are harming. Once you have used this ability, you may not do it again until the end of your next round.
    • UP: You can return to life a creature that has not been dead for more than one round per spices mixed. This ability works as the Raise Dead spell, but the creature returns to life with half hit points and is under the effects of a Fly spell (CL equal to stoner level). Moreover, the creature emits light in a 20 feet radius. This ability works normally on monkeys, but it causes them to spontaneously explode one round later. If you use this power to raise anything that is not a monkey, you use up your Diamond Filter.


    Purple 'shroom
    • Fume-shrooms: As a standard action, you can coalesce your smoke into a fume-shroom that lasts one minute. This shroom has hit points equal to your Stoner level, and an AC of 11+your Cha modifier; it can not move and dissipates if it is moved, but it can float. As a move action, once per round, you can command the shroom to shoot a 30 ft. line of purple cloud that deals 3d6 acid damage. For every two Stoner levels above 7th, you create an additional fume-shroom when you use this ability. All shrooms created must be within 5 feet of another. If you create the fume-shrooms a second time while they're still active, the previous ones disappear.
    • Glitterfungus: You can craft a tiny fungus that emits a faint light. The fungus shrieks if a hostile creature enters the area around him (as the Alarm spell). The fungus cannot move and disappears after 12 hours, or if it is moved. At 16th level, as a standard action, you may cause the fungus to inflate, float to the position you desire and subsequently explodonate. Treat the effect as a Scintillating Pattern spell.
    • Infected mushroom: As a standard action, you can touch an enemy to bestow a disease of your choice on him. The initial saving throw DC is equal to your standard DC. At 10th level, you may choose to bestow a poison instead. The poison deals 1d4 Con primary damage plus one point per spices mixed, which is repeated after one minute.
    • UP: You become a spore swarm. This effect works like the Gaseous Form spell.


    Blowpipe
    This blend is an actual blowpipe. The stoner sets it on fire when she starts using it.
    • Secrets of the Amazons: You can use the blowpipe as a greater blowgun (Complete Warrior 154). You are considered proficient with it, and you only need one hand to use it.
    • Spirit guide: When you start using this blend, you create a Tiny sensor made of smoke. It has half your hit points and an AC of 12 but it can not attack. It has a fly speed equal to your land speed, with perfect maneuverability. You can see, hear and use your other senses through it. The sensor may move up to a distance of 1,000 feet times the spices mixed. You may not replace this sensor until the next day.
    • Avalanche smoke: You can breathe a 120 feet long line that deals 1d6 damage per spices mixed. Every creature included in the area, starting with the closest one, must make a Reflex save or be blown back for 10 feet times the spices mixed. If this movement causes the creature to enter the space of another creature which fails its saving throw, both are hurled back again. When the creatures stop moving, they are prone. This effect causes a real avalanche of enemies.
    • One blow one kill: As a standard action, you can make a single ranged attack. If you hit, you deal double damage. At 13th level, it deals triple damage. At 19th level, it deals quadruple damage.
    • UP: You make a single ranged attack roll against every foe you can see. You have no distance penalties on the attack rolls and if you hit, you deal damage as you would with the One blow one kill ability.


    Fourth level blends
    Spoiler
    Show
    Greensalt powder
    • Hideous transformation: You gain a +4 bonus to Strength and Dexterity, plus the spices mixed. Your natural armor bonus improves by 2 plus spices mixed. You gain a resistance bonus on Fortitude saves equal to 2 plus spices mixed. You gain a competence bonus to Bluff checks equal to 2 plus spices mixed. You are considered to be one size category smaller when it would be advantageous for you.
    • Pounding blows: Whenever you hit an enemy with a melee attack and deal more than 10 damage, you can immediately follow with a free bull rush or trip attempt. If you choose to bull rush, you do not follow your foe as she is hurled away.
    • Surge of bile: Whenever you do a full-attack action, you may opt to spend a swift action to gain an extra attack. This attack does not stack with haste effects.
    • Tougher than you: As a swift action, whenever you hit and deal damage to an opponent, you can gain damage reduction (2 times spices mixed)/cold iron for one round.
    • Sacrifice the Weak: As a standard action, you can use Forced Share Pain (see XPH) as a supernatural ability.
    • UP: You gain temporary hit points equal to your maximum hit points. These hit points last one minute. You may make one free melee attack, at full BAB, for every two spices mixed. The bonuses granted by this blend remain active through the use of its Ultimate Power.


    Deep voyage dust
    • Heightened movement: You gain the ability to teleport for a distance equal to your land speed as a move action. At 16th level, you may opt to move in this way as a swift action.
    • Hallucinatory visions: You gain blindsense out to a distance equal to 20 feet times the spices mixed, and blindsight for half the distance.
    • Vaporize: You breathe a 30 feet cone as a standard action. Every ally in this area may instantly teleport up to a distance of 10 feet times the spices mixed. Every enemy in the area must make a Will save or be teleported up to the same distance in a location of your choice. Enemies cannot be teleported into locations that cannot support them (See Summon Monster I, PHB 286).
    • Lingering halo: You can use Hallucinatory Terrain at will. You may only have up to one such effect active at any time.
    • UP: You and your allies disappear in a puff of smoke. You may reappear in any smoke area within 10 miles per stoner level, as per the Shadow Walk spell.


    Peace calumet
    • Joint effort: Whenever you use the Aid Another action or assist someone with a skill check, you bestow an extra bonus equal to the spices mixed. Whenever someone helps you, likewise, you gain the same bonus.
    • Talks with wolves: You may charm any single creature. This is a charm, mind-affecting effect that is negated by a Will save. At 13th level, and again at 16th and 19th level, you may charm an additional creature at once.
    • Spirit horse: When friends are around you, they seem to be growing evanescent horse limbs. Every ally that inhales your smoke gains a enhancement bonus to all her speed modes equal to 10 feet times the spices mixed.
    • Geronimo: Your shout pushes opponents away from you and knocks them down. Creatures caught within a 30 feet cone must succeed a special Bull Rush attempt (the stoner's bonus is equal to his stoner level + spices mixed). Creatures who fail this check are pushed back to the edge of the area. At 13th level, they also fall prone. At 16th level, they are also staggered for one round. At 19th level, they are also dazed for one round.
    • Magic umbrella: The clouds of your calumet coalesce above your heads, and it starts to rain. The rain gives you SR equal to 11 plus your stoner level. At 13th, 16th, and 19th level, the spell resistance applies to an additional ally.
    • UP: You dance wildly as you smoke. The rain shortly becomes torrential. An area of 10 feet times spices mixed is washed in antimagic. Treat the whole area as if in an antimagic field. This effect lasts one round per spices mixed.


    Fifth level blends

    Show
    Fighting fog
    • Solidity: An area around you with a radius of 5 feet every four stoner levels is filled with dense fog. Every square counts twice for every movement. You and any creatures you craft with this blend are immune to the effect. You may activate and deactivate this ability at will, as a swift action.
    • Coalesce smoke: By spending spices into this blend, you may create one or more smoke elementals. You must invest 1 spice to craft an elemental. Elementals have Hit Dice equal to your stoner level, and they use your Charisma score as their Strength score. It takes one minute to craft an elemental.

You may only spend these points while you are creating an elemental, and you cannot spend more points on abilities of a given tier than the amount of points that you spent on any one level of a lower tier. Unless specified otherwise, you may not pick an ability multiple times; each ability chosen also increases the number of HD that a Smoke Elemental has by 1.
      Spoiler
      Show
      Tier I:
      • One of your Elemental's physical ability scores increases by 6; unlike other Spice Investment abilities, this one may be chosen multiple times, each time increasing a different ability score.

      • Your elemental receives a +4 enhancement bonus to Saves.
      • Your elemental gains a +5 Dodge bonus to AC.


      Tier II:
      • If your elemental hits an enemy with any natural attack, they may make a trip attempt without having to make a touch attack or provoking an attack of opportunity. If the attempt fails, the opponent can't react to trip the elemental.
      • Your elemental gains two claw attacks as secondary natural weapons; they do 1d8 damage for a Medium elemental. Alternatively, you may choose to choose this ability as primary natural weapons; in which case, they replace the elemental's slam attack.
      • Your elemental's slam attack becomes a bite attack, dealing 2d6 damage for a medium elemental.
      • Your elemental gains the Trample special ability; this cannot be chosen if your elemental has a Bite attack or Claw attack.
      • You elemental gains the Improved Grab ability.
      • Your elemental becomes Large size.
      • Your elemental becomes Small size


      Tier III:

      Tier IV:
      • Your Elemental is affected by a permanent Greater Invisibility effect, as cast by a sorcerer with a CL equal to the Elemental's HD.
      • Your elemental increases in size to Huge size.
      • Your elemental decreases in size to Tiny size.
      • One of your elemental's physical ability scores increases by 12. Unlike other abilities, this one may be selected multiple times, each time increasing a different ability score.
      • Each time your elemental successfully deals damage with a natural attack, the creature they struck receives one negative level; after 24 hours, they must must make a Fort save against a DC of (10+your Charisma modifier+the number of Spices invested in the elemental) or instead lose a level.


      Fists of Smoke (Su): When you first activate Fighting Fog each day, you may choose one of the following abilities, which affects all of your elementals.
      • Hellpunches: Damage dealt by your elementals is fire damage and has an extra 1d6 points of damage for every two spices mixed.
      • Darkpunches: The elementals blind their targets the first time they hit every turn. This effect lasts 1 round and can be negated by a Fortitude save against a DC of (10+your Charisma modifier+the number of Spices invested in the elemental.)
      • Suckerpunches: Whenever you are hit by a foe, any elementals in reach of the attacker can make a sudden attack against him, after the attack is resolved.
    • UP: All the elementals explodonate. The effect of this Ultimate Power depends on the "punch" variant active at the time. The elementals may not move or be repositioned in the round you use this ability. No creature can be affected by this UP more than once per day.
      • Hellpunches: every elemental busts into hellfire. Its explosion covers all the area it could reach, and deals 5 untyped and 5 fire damage per Stoner level (Reflex half). No creature can be affected by this ability more than once. The affected surfaces remain on fire for 24 hours, dealing 1d6 plus stoner level hellfire damage to all creatures who enter the area.
      • Darkpunches: draw all possible lines between all elementals and you. Every foe caught in one of these lines takes a penalty of 8 points to each ability score (minimum 1, Reflex half). This penalty lasts one minute.
      • Suckerpunches: every elemental makes a full attack against each foe you threaten.


    Brown's mixture
    • Stochastics: You blow some smoke at one enemy as an immediate action. This smoke defies physics laws, changing the direction the enemy starts moving in. The enemy makes a Reflex save. On success, nothing happens and the enemy moves in the intended direction. On failure, the enemy can't move but is instead thrown in a random direction (roll 1d8) for a number of feet equal to the enemy's move speed, or until it cannot move anymore (due to an obstacle, for example).
    • Entropy battery: As a standard action, you can remove a number of adjacent 5 ft cubes of nonliving solid matter from their location, storing them on an extradimensional space in your blend. You can retrieve them as a move action, every cube in a location you desire within 30 feet. The maximum number of cubes you can store and retrieve is equal to the spices mixed.
    • Spell conductor: As an immediate action a number of times per day equal to the spices mixed, when a magic user attempts to cast a spell (or the equivalent of), you may redirect the effect. Make a level check against a DC of 11+CL. You gain a bonus to this check equal to the spices invested. If you are successful, the target of the magic becomes anyone you choose. If the target is not valid (such as the case of Personal range spells), the magic simply fails.
    • UP: An area of 1 mile around you is in wild magic for 1 round per spices invested.


    Tea leaves
    • Ghostly granny: This ability works just like the Spirit guide ability of the Blowpipe. If you mix two spices, the sensor can also duplicate the effects of Clairvoyance/Clairaudience. If you mix three, it can also replicate the effect of Psionic Scry. If you mix four, it can replicate Prying Eyes. If you mix six, any sensor you have is treated as having True Seeing.
    • Bill's compass: You can replicate the effect of a Locate Creature spell. If you mix 4 spices, you can also mimic Find the Path.
    • Space rainbow: For each spice mixed, you gain 10% concealment. You may never have more than 50% concealment. This is an illusion effect, and as such it can be negated by True Seeing and similar effects.
    • Elephant hide: You gain an insight bonus to AC equal to the spices mixed.
    • Potion of superiority: Every weapon you use is considered to have the Bane property against any enemy you encounter.
    • UP: You gain the benefits of a feat of your choice for 24 hours. You must meet the prerequisites for this feat.


    Sixth level blends
    Spoiler
    Show
    Cigarette DMC-42
    • Temporal throttle: Once per day for each spice mixed, you make reality go faster for you and your allies. Every round for five rounds, every ally gains a cumulative +1 to attack rolls, AC, Reflex saves, and one more attack whenever they do a full attack (max 5). These benefits don't stack with Haste and similar effects.
    • Temporal brakes: Once per day for each spice mixed, you slow reality for your enemies. The first round, enemies must make a Will save or lose their swift actions for that round. The second round, they must save or lose their swift and move actions. The third round, they must save or lose their standard actions. The fourth round, they must save or lose their swift, move, and standard actions. The fifth round, they must save or be paralyzed for 1 round.
    • Gear change: Once per day for each spice mixed, for five rounds, you may gain the benefits of a single magic item of your choice. There are, however, the following restrictions: the item must not cost more than your most expensive item, and the item must not be expendable or have charges; at the end of the five rounds, any ongoing effect caused by this item vanishes.
    • Wheel of time: Once per day, you may stop time (as the Time Stop spell) for a number of effective rounds equal to the spices mixed.
    • UP: Time goes back one round, as per the Time Regression power.


    Mindcopter
    • Bamboo Matrix: In a volume with a radius of 20 feet per spices mixed, the space effectively becomes two-dimensional. Everything is shifted to the same altitude of the stoner, on a plane perpendicular to the stoner's gravity. This negates burrow and fly abilities, and renders any obstacle such as a wall, or a fog, useless. Creatures within the Bamboo Matrix may share the same space without penalty, and movement in the area does not provoke attacks of opportunity. You may suppress and reactivate this ability as a free action once per round.
    • Breeze Knight: You gain a bonus on Initiative checks equal to the spices mixed.
    • Oblivion Icarus: You may emulate the power of the Gate spell. You don't ever pay XP, but if you would have, then you have to burn a special offering made of regular potatoes, worth 5,000 gp. One potato weighs 1 lb. and is worth 1 cp. The DM may, at his option, allow a discount on the potato price. This has the only effect of requiring even more potatoes to complete the ritual.
    • Blackmarsh Signature: You may force two souls to switch bodies. This effect works similarly to the Mind Switch power, and has a duration equal to the spices mixed in rounds.
    • Mountain Filth: Roll all the dice. The d20 is used for a ranged touch attack roll against an enemy; the d4 represents the effect bestowed on your enemy.
      {table=head]Number Rolled|Effect
      1|1d6 Str penalty, 1d8 Dex penalty, 1d12 Con penalty, 1d100: 25% chance of daze
      2|1d6 Int penalty, 1d8 Wis penalty, 1d12 Cha penalty, 1d100: 75% of confusion
      3|1d6 negative levels, 1d8 penalty to checks, 1d12 penalty to AC, 1d100 damage
      4|1d6 temporary HP, 1d8 as prismatic spray, 1d12x5 penalty to all speed modes, 1d100 polymorph (use reincarnate table)[/table]
      The effects based on the d100 last 1 round, while the others (if not resolved instantaneously) last 1 minute.
    • UP: You may choose other blends, and reallocate your spices, instantly. If you do so, you may craft one less blend than the amount you have active now. Blends exhausted because their UP has already been used are not considered active. Any spices in the Mindcopter blend are lost.


    Hookah of the Almighty
    • Facets of the Six: You may select one ability from the following table if you invest one Spice into this Blend; at 3 Spice invested, and every 3 Spice invested after that, you gain one additional ability from the following list:
    • Chant of blood: Immunity to fire damage, death effects, and stunning.
    • Chant of freedom: Immunity to electricity damage, mind-affecting abilities and prismatic effects.
    • Chant of darkness: Immunity to cold damage, critical hits, sneak attacks, aligned spells, and polymorph.
    • Chant of renewal: Immunity to acid damage, poison, disease, and SR (15+Stoner level).
    • Chant of glory: Immunity to force effects, negative energy effects, ability damage and ability drain.
    • Chant of truth: Immunity to sonic damage, divinations, blindness, deafness.
  7. Charred blessing: Pour in your hookah a mixture of herbs that costs 100 gp. Smoke the hookah for two days straight. After that, the next time you would die, you are instead teleported to your hookah, and your body reforms from its smoke. If at any time you stop having the Hookah as one of your active blends, you lose the benefits of this ability.
  8. Power Word Infuse (Ex): Target one creature per two spices mixed. If the creature has more than 100 hp, its hp are halved. If it has less than 100 hp, it is healed twice its current hp. If you are within an antimagic area and you successfully damage a creature, you heal the damage you did.
  9. UP: By the power of thy hookah, you are able to empty it all at once. A god of your choice sees this, and grants you a Miracle as an award. You have the same limitations as normal, and you must pay the regular XP cost if it's needed.

Feats, Races, and Items coming soon.


It is done.

Re-doing the Smoke Elemental was a pain, let me tell you...

    Default Re: [3.5] A... flavourful base class: The Stoner

    Finally, I know what class to put when people ask what D&D class I'd be ;)

    Anyhow, it's very comical, but I doubt it has much practical use in most games with a serious bent, so it's hard to evaluate.

    You should probably clarify Spices a little more. As is it's a bit confusing, but I think it's supposed to emulate Essentia? If so, y


    Are Blends crafted and carried like items? How many can he have at once?
    If there's a rule, there's someone out there trying to figure out how to get around it just to piss off his DM.

    When you quote something, you don't get quotes in that quote, so you can't quote while you quote.

    What I mean to say is, since you put your formatting in a quotebox, he won't be able to get it and put it up. Spoiler it instead.


    Either way, I'm loving it. Silly-serious classes are kinda my thing, so you're getting two thumbs up for me. I can't see how this class could not be used in a serious game.

    On the sixth-level Cigarette DMC-42's Temporal Throttle ability though: perhaps it would be better to say it does not stack with Haste, Snap Kick and the like, rather than saying it allows for a maximum of 5 attacks. Fits in with existing rules better and does just about the same thing (except 5 attacks maximum would actually nerf TWFers).

    Yup, the formatting is outstanding but I can't currently copy it in the OP. And I really want to now.

    Blends are crafted similarly to how you roll a cigarette in my mind... the amount you can craft and carry every day depends on your level (5 at 20th level). You get your pool of spices which you can distribute among your blends when you craft them. So it's like essentia but you can't move it around with a swift action.

    The DMC-42, it is supposed to say max 5 extra attacks.

    I will reword that.
    Best homebrew ever (shameless self plug)! The Stoner, always PEACH

    Okay. First off, awesome. I am so very amused that you did this and made it work.

    Why half bab? I'd give it 3/4 I think, since quite a few blends make attacking look good.

    How many spices do you have? It says you can use up to con mod at once, but not how many you have. Level? Level+con mod?

    More Flavours: You never actually said you can only use one blend at a time. You may want to put that in the Blend description.

    Blend Enrichments: Why luck? Why not Alchemy? it seems to fit best. Also I'm noticing your pronouns are inconsistent. You, he, and she.

    On Mistwalker... why does it only work when you start on solid ground? Maybe have it work as long as you're not moving, to stop you using it as feather fall, but walking out of a river seems awesome.

    Have Howling Trip grant perfect maneouverability at high levels. It's so much easier! Plus shiny.

    Why does the lemon tree have to go away? Why not just leave lemon trees everywhere?

    Shadowsmoke seems strong! Mirror images are /nasty/, and having them replenish is... eek.

    Umbral Weapon mentions siege weapons and automatic crits? Both of those look strong, and might need more clarification for a balance call.

    Diamond Filter. Whut?

    Does Deep Voyage dust have a limit on number of allies?

    I feel like Gear Change should scale with your level, rather than your equipment-as is it's UP if you have lots of minor stuff, and OP for one big thing. Plus what if the DM drops you a mcguffin?

    Default Re: [3.5] A... flavourful base class: The Stoner

    Half BAB because we took the Incarnate as a basis so we wanted some abilities that gave him consistent bonuses if you tried hard. The class is intended to be a good melee only with serious effort and hey, there's a +1 bonus that gives you Medium BAB.

    The spices you get are listed in the main class table, along with the BAB, saves, and the maximum blend level available.

    Blend enrichments: we wanted a bonus that was uncommon but not too uncommon. We thought about alchemical but, there's basically nothing that gives an alchemical bonus in 3.5 to that would have been the same as an untyped bonus and we thought that is was a bit too strong. About pronouns, I'll read through the text and try to fix it.

    Mistwalker: we wanted to prevent the user from flying 24/7 as long as he could spend an action in 5 rounds. This way he still has to land. Suggestions?

    Shadowsmoke: Greater Mirror Image is, IMO, stronger! It doesn't even need an action to replenish the illusions.

    Umbral weapon and siege weapons are an obligatory reference to The Gamers. Feel free to disregard.

    Diamond Filter is the material component for Revivify, which is the blend's "Unleash the smoke" power. For fluff reasons, you incorporate it into the blend and "burn" it if you use the UP.

    Deep Voyage Dust: no, but there is the usual range (60 feet).

    Gear change: since this is a blend first gained at level 16, I don't think any magic item is going to be really really OP in a game where T2s are allowed. With this premise, I'm quite sure that any level 16 character will have at least a 36k item, AKA a +6 bonus to one stat. 36k seems high enough for the power to not be UP, in my opinion. About the McGuffin, yeah. As a DM I'd price a McGuffin at 0 gp to make sure that the party doesn't sell it though

    Thanks for the appreciation! And thanks for the formatting!

    Ooh, I guess the enrichment makes up for it. Okay.

    ...faaaaaail. xD I was tired, if it helps.

    Hmmm. Honestly, I'd rather just make them alchemica myself, cause fluffwise that's what they fit. Maybe morale fits better than luck? I just don't know how luck would fit.

    Mistwalker: we wanted to prevent the user from flying 24/7 as long as he could spend an action in 5 rounds. This way he still has to land. Suggestions?
    This ability cannot be used in the same round that it ends, and so you fall for at least one round?

    Shadowsmoke: Greater Mirror Image is, IMO, stronger! It doesn't even need an action to replenish the illusions.
    I didn't even know that spell exists, so fair enough.

    Umbral weapon and siege weapons are an obligatory reference to The Gamers. Feel free to disregard.
    ...eh, okay. Probably safe.

    Diamond Filter is the material component for Revivify, which is the blend's "Unleash the smoke" power. For fluff reasons, you incorporate it into the blend and "burn" it if you use the UP.
    ...oh! How did I miss that?

    Deep Voyage Dust: no, but there is the usual range (60 feet).
    Currently, with the UP, you can teleport an entire army to a campfire. It has no limit on numbers at all. You could literally drop every ally and friend you have ever had on one guy's campfire.

    I love the class but a word seems to appear I don't get.

    What is UP?
    UP: You return to full hit points, and are cured of the following conditions: deaf, shaken, dazzled, fatigued, disease. At 13th level, you are cured of poison, blindness, stun, exhaustion, frightening. At 16th level, you are cured of daze, any ability damage, panic, confusion, polymorph. You can unleash this ability even if there is an adverse condition (such as stunning) that would restrict you from acting.

    Ultimate Power, I believe; from Unleash the Smoke feature.

    This is remarkably well done, and a great attempt at a less-than-serious source material. Good job!

    Like another poster said, this is comedy gold, yet could still be taken seriously if nessicary. I think you could call it somthing like "Master of incence" or "the Inssuflated."

    No other real critique as yet except rewording "More flavors" to make it clear that you get one more blend every time they recive the feature.

    Also, how many blends/per day? Do you get just the one (that may or may not count as several) but it lasts all day?

    Also, is there a blend that gives you a smokey breath-weapon?

    UP is the Ultimate Power, yes. It unlocks at level 8 and makes you lose all benefits from that blend until the next day.

    You get one blend per day, or more if you already have the More Flavors class feature, and it lasts all day (or until you use its UP).

    No blends that give breath weapons. I dislike how having that qualifies you for poorly written metabreath feats and I dislike the shenanigans you can do with that. However, look up the "A Breeze of Life and Death" ability under (Un)Holy Smoke. That's very similar to a breath weapon.

    That actually sounds really badass.

    Imagine the bad guys sitting at their camp thinking they are safe and BAM:

    An entire militia right in the middle, led by the mythical master of smoke.


    This class seems AWESOME.

    I'm definitely going to try and convince a DM to allow it.

    Good luck!

    I've been testing the class and it's strong. It is, in my opinion, comparable to a T1/T2 for power level, with a weak-ish start and a very strong finish.

    I'd be glad to know how you find it, if you manage to get in a game with it.

    Smoke Vision (Ex): A stoner can see perfectly in smoky conditions (such as those created by pyrotechnics).

    Mist Vision (Su): A stoner can see through fog, clouds, and similar obscuring effects with perfect clarity, in addition to smoky conditions.

    I just wanted to say your class has been Tiered. Other than sixth-level Blends and fifth-level UPs, it has no Tier 1-2 stuff, which is a good thing. A lot of abilities are missing (Ex), (Su) or (Sp) tags though. Without those, an ability is automatically (Ex), which would be ill-fitting on many of them. Mistwalker is illogical in that it works like air walk, but doesn't actually allow you to walk on the air (since it only works while you are standing on the ground).

    Huh.

    All of the stoner's blends should be (Su) by default... not sure why I haven't included that. Thanks.

    The effect spices have depends on the specific blend.

    Example: Pipeweed. Every spice mixed in this blend given you a +1 Deflection bonus to AC, and +1 fast healing. Without spices you still have the Shield AC, the Goad-like ability, and the ultimate power.

    Another example: Blacktar: the stench aura is dependent on the spices mixed, and with 0 spices, the aura does not exist. Therefore, this blend needs at least one spice to work.

    Some blends are designed to work well even without many spices or without spices at all, while others need a substantial investment to be useful.

    I don't get how you can get more than two benefits from Hookah of the Almighty's Facet of the Six Ability. It seems to suggest you can invest up to 21 spices, but you only get 16 at max and the cap is limited by your Constitution. You probably meant something else, but would you explain it for me?

    If you mix 6 spices into the blend, you will be able to choose three benefits. If you mix 10, four benefits and so on. Currently, the maximum you can put in one blend is 18, using the Pungent Spices feat, so it is impossible at the moment to get all six benefits from that ability. You will be able to get five by putting 15 spices into it, however.

    And yeah, the Constitution cap will limit that. It's going to be a hard optimizing work to get a +18 modifier, that's for sure. I know I did it while playtesting and trying to break the class, and the result was that putting all points into that blend makes you quite useless. Invulnerable, but useless. Therefore, I believe it's fine that way!

    When we get down to write more, we will add items that give more spices, possibly a feat FoI-style, maybe a stoner-tuned race, and we were thinking about a prestige class or two as well. Those should make it possible to reach 21. In the meanwhile, nothing stops you from making your own magic items or asking the DM for some.
