    Default The new quick vestige list


    "Why is this such a pain to find and look at!"

    So I wanted to make a binder recently, and when I went to find a consolidated list of vestiges and their abilities, all I could find was this, which has broken tables. So using this, I went and fixed up a new set of tables for everyone to use. Credit goes to Pechvarry for making the initial table and The-Mage-King for his table code converter.

    I've gone through and added more detailed descriptions of the abilities each vestige gives you, since the original one wasn't up to par with my standards, and as per Aegis013's request (and because it's a great idea) I've also gone through and added the binding DC, signs, influences, and their special requirements.

    As far as I am aware, this list contains all the vestiges from WotC published material (but not dungeon/dragon magazine), and their online web-enhancements (veistges from web enhancements have a link to their respective articles).

    Abilities like this can be used with the bind vestige feat.

    Abilities like this can be used with the practised binder feat.

    So without further adieu:

    Arete (Binding DC21)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.

    Your body's colors alter to become slightly off. Blonde hair becomes too golden, green eyes become too emerald green, and your skin becomes faultless and has no pores. You do not get hungry or tired while bound to Arete, but you do suffer negative effects if you do not eat or sleep for the duration that the vestige is bound. If faced with a need to do research, Arete insists that you seek out lore regarding him and his research into immortality as well, which can often double or even triple the time you spend seeking information (DM's discretion; finding out where the local rowdies ran off to after a tavern fight might not give Arete grounds to require research into his own past, for example). Arete does not like to be reminded that the elan are considered abominations by some, and he does not answer your summons if you are already bound to Chupoclops or Eurynome.

    Astaroth (Binding DC22)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Angelic Lore You gain bardic knowledge based on your binder level.

    Word of Astaroth You can use suggestion as the spell. 5 round cooldown and a maximum of your charisma modifier of suggestions can be active at one time.
    Your skin yellows, and you emit a foul, unwashed odor. While this odor is not strong enough to impede or distract an opponent, it does attract attention. Astaroth's influence renders you incapable of taking responsibility for your own actions. You cannot admit any fault, acknowledge any mistake, or make reparations or apologies for any wrong, no matter the consequences or the evidence against you. None.

    Buer (Binding DC20)

Either way, you must touch the creature. The full round action has a 5 round cooldown. Uses positive energy, thus deals damage to undead.
    Track You gain the benefit of the Track feat.
    Your feet turn into satyr hooves, giving you the look of tip-toeing everywhere. These hooves prevent you from wearing normal boots, but magical ones re-shape to fit you. You have momentary lapses of memory loss, forgetting things as familiar as names of friends or family members. In addition, your first attack in combat must be nonlethal against living creatures (except animals and vermin), and you cannot coup de grace. Seal must be drawn outdoors.

    Eurynome (Binding DC21)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Animal Friend All animals have an initial attitude of friendly toward you.
    Damage Reduction You gain Damage Reduction 2/lawful
    Eurynome's Maul As a swift action you can summon a large magical warhammer (2d6 weapon damage, x3 crit). You are proficient with the weapon and can wield it in one hand with no penalty. It starts off as a +1 weapon, becoming +1 anarchic at level 11, +1 anarchic and adamantine at level 15 and +3 anarchic and adamantine at level 19. If it leaves your grasp for more than 1 round, it disappears until you summon it again.
    Poison Blood Your blood is poisonous, dealing 1d6 initial damage and 1d6/3 binder levels (Max 5d6) secondary damage to any creature that hits you with a bite, or that swallows you whole. Each bite attack, or each round you are in a creature's gullet, poisons the creature anew, requiring another round of fortitude saves. Your poison blood becomes inert after 1 minute once it leaves your body.
    Water Dancing You can move on liquid as if it were firm ground, as the water walk spell.
    Your skin becomes clammy and you leave moist prints on any object your body touches, even if clothing blocks direct contact. These marks evaporate after about 1 minute.

You cannot attack a foe unless an ally has already done so, does not apply if you have no allies present. Cannot be bound to Amon.

    Tenebrous (Binding DC21)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Deeper Darkness You can emnate a deeper darkness effect, with unlimited duration. As a move action, you can reduce or increase the emnation by 10 feet (out to a maxium of it's normal range of 60ft) and as a standard action you can supress or resume it.
    See in Darkness You can see with perfect clarity through any kind of darkness, including magical darkness.
    Touch of the Void As a swift action you can charge your next melee attack or melee touch attack with cold energy, dealing 1d8 +1d8/4 binder levels beyond 7th extra cold damage. At 11th level, the charge remains for an entire round. 5 round cooldown.
    Turn/Rebuke Undead You can turn/rebuke undead as a cleric of your binder level (stacking with any other levels of turn/rebuke). 5 round cooldown.
    Vessel of Emptiness You can use the flicker shadow magic mystery as a supernatural ability 1/day. At 13th level you can use it twice, and at 19th level you can use it three times. Flicker: For 1 round/level, you can teleport yourself as an immediate action up to 5ft/2 levels, arriving exactly where desired, as dimension door. You can use this in response to an attack, giving yourself a 50% chance to avoid it.
    You seem to be standing in shadow, even on the brightest day. Furthermore, your own shadow never extends more than a few feet from your body, even if the ambient lighting suggests that it should be much longer. This effect does not grant you concealment. You become detatched and are filled with a sense of aching loss and abandonment. In addition, you cannot be the first to act in combat. If you score the highest initiative, you must delay until someone else acts. You must draw his seal either at night, or in an area of deep shadow with little to no daylight exposure.

    While hosting Desharis, your eyes turn to glass. Anyone meeting your gaze sees the movement of multiple silhouettes behind them, as though looking through a window at a busy street. Under Desharis's influence, you cannot stand to be alone, and the more people you have around you, the better. You never voluntarily accept any task that requires you to be alone, and you argue vigorously against options that would split the party. If you have the opportunity to socialize with large groups of people (such as entering a boisterous tavern), you must take it unless doing so is overtly harmful, or you have reason to suspect the individuals are hostile to you. If you have gone more than a day without binding Desharis, you may only draw his seal in a village or larger city. Attempts to do so elsewhere fail outright. You can, however, "carry" Desharis into the wild; this is why you may continue to summon him, even outside the urban environment, if you have not allowed more than a day to lapse since you last did so.

Your mental aspect shifts to match the face that is currently your sign. As Gorn, you are inquisitive and use many words -- some would say too many. As Rujsha, you are caring and motherly, speaking to others as if they were children. As Mintar, you are honor-bound and slightly combative in manner. When your path crosses that of one influenced by shadow, the gestalt insists that you either face that being first when in combat or avoid that being (and any effects or assistance the being may wish to provide) outside of combat.

    Vanus's Ears You gain +5 to listen checks, or +10 vs evil creatures.
    When a binder makes a pact with the Reviled One, a boil appears on his body. Within the ruddy fluid in this boil swims a maggot. Should the boil be broken, the maggot slides swiftly across the binderís body, eluding any attempt to catch it, and digs again beneath the skin. Before the original boil can scab over, another grows and the maggot appears within. Only by ending the pact with Vanus can the binder be rid of the foul insect and the disgusting homes it makes for itself. Under the influence of Vanus, you take every opportunity to revel. Even small victories seem like cause for grand celebrations, and if youíre happy, you want everyone around to share your joy. If you see others in the act of celebration, you must join in. If you achieve victory in combat, you must immediately spend a full-round action crowing about your triumph. Vanus will not appear before a binder if his seal is drawn within sight of a doorway or window of any kind. If such apertures can be hidden from view, Vanus submits to being summoned, but the moment Vanus sees a door or window, he shrieks and vanishes in a gout of blue flame. Should the binding attempt be aborted in this manner, Vanus will not appear before the binder for three days.

Additionally, Orthos requres that you speak only in a whisper. You must summon Orthos within an area of bright illumination.

    Ok, so I've gone and made the whole thing a bit nicer, including adding the binding DC, special requirements, signs and influences as Aegis013 suggested. If I missed any vestiges, can people let me know? I'm thinking about also expanding to include dragon/dungeon magazine vestiges, so I'll be looking into that as well.

    I just put in the normal binder level availability, I'm sure people are capable of taking 2 from the number if they have improved binding.

    I like this a lot as well. Any chance you could label which vestige powers are the ones available to non-binders using the bind vestige and improved bind vestige feats?

    Hmm, I'll have to get back to you on that, I might do later down the track, since there arent that many of them, although I have to make sure I dont hit the character limits, I'm getting pretty close right now

    Two non-epic vestiges are missing that I know of: Kas and Primus, both from Dragon #341.

    Edit: There's also Ansitif, Cabiri, and Diabolus from Dragon #357.

    The entry on Vanus is missing the link.

    There are four epic vestiges:
    • Amun-her Khepeshef "Desecrated Scion"
    • Gaia, "Soul of the Land"
    • Tkhaluuljin "the Cephalopocalypse"
    • Zuriel "the Bronze God"

    Each requires its own epic feat in order to bind it. They can be found online here.

    Edit again: Also Ahazu from the Savage Tide adventure path, Dungeon #148.

    3rd level:
    Ahazu (Binding DC20)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Ahazu's Abduction You can speak Ahazu's name to shunt a creature within 30 feet of you into the void between the planes. A Will save negates the effect and renders the creature immune to it for 24 hours. Once the creature is abducted, it remains trapped int he void for 1 round, effectively losing its action on that round of combat. You can use this ability at will.
    Ahazu's Touch You can produce an effect identical to unholy blight on a creature you touch. 5 round cooldown.
    Blindsight You gain blindsight out to a range of 5 feet per effective binder level (max 100 feet).
    Void Mind As a standard action, you can become immune to spells, spell-like effects, and supernatural effects with the mind-affecting descriptor or that affect souls (such as magic jar, soul bind, and trap the soul) as long as the vestige remains bound to you. However, if you die while under the effects of this power, you cannot be brought back to life with a raise dead or resurrection spell.
    Weapon Proficiency You are proficient with the bastard sword, longsword, and shortsword.
    Your skin becomes cold to the touch and the inside of your mouth is cloaked in absolute darkness and periodically expels clouds of black smoke. Ahazu's avarice infects you, causing you to steal small, precious objects whenever the opportunity presents itself, if you feel you can do so without getting caught. This covetousness extends toward the lives of your enemies as well. If possible, you must try to imprison your enemies alive in a dark hellhole, rather than kill them or let them escape. If you allow an enemy to escape you become wracked with anger and suffer a -4 penalty to Charisma-based checks as long as you are under Ahazu's influence. Seal must be drawn on the surface of one of the Pools of Darkness, found at the bottom of the Wells of Darkness on the seventy-third layer of the Abyss.

    Primus (Binding DC24)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Divine Structure If you perform the same actions on consecutive rounds in the same order, you gain a +1 competence bonus on all attacks, saves, and skill checks that round.For example, if you move and make a standard attack, and then in the following round move and make a standard attack, you would gain the bonus. If you move and make a standard attack and then in the next round 5-foot adjust and make a full attack, you would not get the bonus.
    Lawful Attacks Your melee and ranged attacks are considered Lawful for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
    Primus's Order You can order a creature within 100 feet to perform one of the actions listed in the command spell, provided it can hear you (though it need not understand you). In addition, if the target fails its Will save, it cannot see or hear you for 1d4 rounds. This ability is not language-based or mind-affecting. 5 round cooldown.
    Dozens of small patches of skin on your arms and legs become gold, silver, and bronze. These randomly placed metals take the shape of well-formed squares, equilateral triangles, hexagons, and other geometric shapes. These pieces of metal do not help or hinder you in any way, and revert to bloody flaps of flesh if removed. You become ruthlessly practical. You evaluate all activities with an eye towards your ultimate goals, brooking no frivolity or distraction. Every action becomes a calculated move. In addition, Primus requires that the binder not knowingly break the law or disobey the direct order of any lawful authority. Primus refuses to appear before a binder already bound to Tenebrous. If the binder has bound to Tenebrous at any point in the past, Primus knows and requires that its sign be drawn in bright light.

    4th level:
    Cabiri (Binding DC18)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Arcane Eye You can create an invisible magical sensor at will, as arcane eye. You can create only one such eye at a time, and you can dismiss or renew it as a standard action. 5 round cooldown.
    Far-seeing Your spells and spell-like abilities of the scrying subschool gain a +10 bonus to their save DCs.
    Seer in Darkness You gain darkvision to 60 feet and low-light vision. If you already have darkvision, its range increases by 60 feet.
    Visions of Terror You can cast phantasmal killer three times per day.
    An additional eye appears on your forehead, equidistant from your other eyes. Cabiri hungers to see everything, no matter how horrifying or entrancing. You receive a +4 insight bonus on Will saves versus figments and a -4 penalty on Will saves against patterns. You may not avert or close your eyes when confronted by a creature with a gaze attack. Seal must be drawn in blood, outside at night or during a solar eclipse.

    Diabolus (Binding DC20)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Blackflame Your spells, spell-like abilities, and magic item abilities with the fire descriptor deal half fire damage and half vile damage. You can cast fireball, as the spell, three times per day.
    Divination You can perform a divination, as the spell.
    Serpentine Tongue You gain a bonus on Bluff and Disguise checks equal to your Binder level. This bonus increases by 4 when dealing with evil outsiders.
    Silvered Touch Any natural attack or attack with a metal weapon you make is treated as if it were a silver weapon, but without the -1 penalty to damage rolls.
    You acquire the stench of brimstone and a cloudy film covers your eyes. You have a vague but continuous sense of impending doom that makes you morose and fatalistic. You must attack a devil in preference to all others whenever you are in combat, and you must initiate combat with any devil you meet. Seal must be drawn on an area of stone that has recently been burned and then doused with cold water.

    Kas (Binding DC25)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Blinding Strike When you score a critical hit, the creature must make a Will save or be permanently blinded. In addition, when you attack undead, you can affect them with critical hits and the blinding effect of this ability.
    Bluff Bonus You gain a +4 competence bonus on Bluff checks.
    Kas's Protection 25% chance to negate extra damage from a sneak attack or critical hit against you. 100% chance if the attacker is undead.
    Undead Reaper When you hit an undead creature with a melee or ranged attack, you automatically bypass any damage reduction it might have.
    Weapon Proficiency You are proficient with the bastard sword, longsword, and shortsword.
    An angry catlike eye appears in the palm of each of your hands. These eyes don't provide you with any extraordinary sight, nor do they inhibit the use of your hands. When you use any power granted by Kas, the eyes weep small amounts of blood for 10 rounds. You act warm and affectionate toward those with whom you speak. You must kill any undead or follower of Vecna that you encounter. In addition, you must betray some friend or ally within the first hour after summoning and binding Kas. This betrayal might be as small as breaking a promise to meet at a specific time or as great as a murder, but it must be unexpected, and the ally or friend must realize that a deliberate betrayal occurred. None.

    7th level:
    Ansitif (Binding DC30)
    Abilities Description Sign Influence Spec. Req.
    Blasphemy You can utter a blasphemy, as the spell, three times per day. Caster level is equal to your effective binder level.
    Divine Resistance You gain spell resistance 12 + your effective binder level against spell-like abilities and divine spells.
    Fire Immunity You gain immunity to fire.
    Thrall to Demon You gain the benefit of the Thrall to Demon feat: once per day, while performing an evil act, you may gain a +1 luck bonus on any one roll. Additionally, if you are a cleric, you must replace your domains with domains granted by the demon lord to which you pledge (see Fiendish Codex I, 88), for as long as the pact is forged. You must pick the demon lord to which you temporarily pledge when you make the pact and cannot pick a different demon lord to venerate until you make a new pact with Ansitif. Note that most good- or lawful-aligned deities would require an atonement for this.
    Your hair and skin become blackened and scorched, as if briefly touched by fire. You are enraged by the presence of relics dedicated to true gods. Ansitif requires that you attempt to destroy or steal any relic you discover that is dedicated to a true god. The seal must be drawn using remnants of a true god's broken holy symbol.

    Thumbs up Re: The new quick vestige list

    I'm currently running a (Hellbred) Binder for the first time, this is very useful - thanks!

    Saying that someone reading RAW differently than you is "home brewing or house ruling, but that's fine" doesn't make you right, it just makes you seem pompous.
