    Default Base Class Contest XXXVIII - I Ain't No Idiom

    I Ain't No Idiom

    Welcome to Base Class Contest number thirty-eight! Let's have fun creating some breathtaking base classes! The rules are below, as always. Make an original D&D 3.5 base class and fight for the right to keep your kneecaps!


    1. You will be creating an original base class based around a theme of idioms; anything is possible, from a bucket kicker to love and war exemplified to a book cover judge, so have fun with it! You may not post your entry anywhere else until after the contest is finished. If you have already posted a class under this theme, you may not enter it for this contest. You may use previous homebrew in your classes as long as no mention of the class or any part of the class was made in that homebrew. Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!

    2. Submissions are due by 23:59 Central Standard Time (USA/Canada) on April 14th, and should be submitted in the format shown in the next post or in another way that's easy on the eyes. Feel free to play around with fonts, images, and the like; just make sure it's not hard to read.

    3. There must be a name, complete class, and fluff for both combat and role playing purposes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified.

    4. Anyone can participate. Everyone is allowed only one entry per contest.

    5. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Violators will be towed disqualified and reported.


    The chat thread is here. Feel free to discuss each other's creations, give critique, or talk about what you think of this contest, but entries (and nothing else) belong in this challenge thread.

    Ready?

    Break a leg!

    Arsonist


    Image by korilin


    "It's as true today as it was the first day I started adventuring. When in doubt, set something on fire!" - Belkar Bitterleaf, not an Arsonist(yet)

    Arsonists burn things. Big things, small things, wooden things, stone things. They always manage to burn something. In any situation, they're always able to add fuel to the fire!

    Adventures: Some Arsonists adventure for honor, others glory, and others money. Most of 'em just want to burn stuff, though.

    Characteristics: Arsonists are good at burning things. They don't really do much else. They just burn stuff. Burn all the stuff.

    Alignment: Most Arsonists are chaotic, and few are good. It is possible to have a good Arsonist, thanks to their special abilities allowing them to avoid burning up bystanders. Most arsonists; however, have little concern for bystanders.

    Religion: Some Arsonists worship Joramy, they most know little about him aside from his being a god of fire. They may worship anyone - or anything - that burns things.

    Background: The path to becoming an Arsonist is simple. You like setting things on fire, and so you continue to set things on fire. Before long, you are an Arsonist.
    You always enjoyed watching the beautiful process of fire consuming things, and now you embrace it.

    Races: Traditionally chaotic and evil races have a tendency to produce more Arsonists, because the life of an arsonist is more appealing to these alignments. Fire creatures, such as Fire Elves and the like, are more often Arsonists than most other races. Of course, races that are particularly vulnerable to fire or used to cold rarely become Arsonists, but when they do, it is an interesting thing.

    Other Classes: Arsonists get along well with some Sorcerers and Wizards, as well as Clerics with the Fire domain. They have much in common with Rogues, and enjoy the company of some Bards. With Fighters and Barbarians there is little common ground. Monks hate them, even more so Rangers and Druids. The class that gets along the least with Arsonists is Paladins.

    Role: Arsonists set things on fire. This sometimes annoys their party. At least they won't burn their party. Probably.
    Adaptation: As long as there are flammable objects in your setting, this class needs little to no adaption.
    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Arsonist's have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: The arsonist's abilities are Charisma based. Dexterity helps with their attacks, and Constitution helps their HP. Funnily enough, few Arsonists have a very good Wisdom score...
    Alignment: Any nonlawful.
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As Barbarian, sometimes a few years sooner. Arsony does not require much training.
    Starting Gold: As Sorcerer.

    Class Skills
    The Arsonist's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff(Cha), Craft(Int), Disguise(Cha), Hide(Dex), Intimidate(Cha), Move Silently(Dex), Survival(Wis) and Use Magic Device(Cha)

    Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Arsonist.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Arsonists are proficient with simple weapons and light armor, but not shields.

    Spark(Ex): As a swift action, an Arsonist can light a fire. This ability has a range of 30'. The range increases by 15' every four levels thereafter. The Arsonist may target a creature with this ability, dealing 1d6 fire damage and catching them on fire.

    Produce Flame(Su):[/b] A 2nd level Arsonist can use Produce Flame as a supernatural ability at will.

    Friendly Fire(Ex): The Arsonist's allies, as well as anyone else she designates, are moderately protected from her fires. They take 10 points less damage from fires caused by the Arsonist. This is not energy resistance. At level 6 the protection becomes 20, and at level 9 it becomes 30. At level 12, her allies take no damage from her fires.

    Fiery Jet(Su): At 5th level the Arsonist gains the ability to shoot fire from her hands as a standard action. This is a ranged touch attack with long range, using the Arsonist's class level in place of a CL. The Fiery Jet does 1d6 fire damage for each point of Charisma bonus the Arsonist possesses, plus 1d6 fire damage for every three class levels. At level 10, and every fifth level thereafter, she may make an additional attack with a cumulative -5 penalty to the attack roll for each Fiery Jet attack already made that action. She may not have more than half of these extra attacks aimed at the same target.

    Scorch(Ex): The Arsonist's fires have the potential to harm even creatures that would normally resist it. At level 6, fires caused by the Arsonist ignore 10 points of fire resistance, and ignore fire immunity, instead dealing half damage to a maximum of 10 points. At level 9, these numbers increase to 20, and at level 12 they become 30. At level 15, all fire resistance is ignored, and there is no cap for maximum damage dealt to fire immune creatures. In addition, rather than dealing half damage, she deals three quarters damage. At level 18, she deals full damage. In addition, creatures that would normally take no damage from the Arsonist's fires due to evasion and similar abilities instead only take 25% damage. Improved Evasion and similar abilities only reduce the damage by 25%. Nonflammable objects can still catch fire and be damaged by the Arsonist's flames.

    Fire Vision(Ex): At level 7, an Arsonist can see 4x as far in firelight. At level 14, she can see as clearly as in broad daylight with but a small fire.

    Fiery Burst(Su): At level 8, an Arsonist can use Fiery Burst as a supernatural ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. The save DC is Charisma based. At level 11, she can use it at will.

    Fireball(Su): At level 9, an Arsonist can use Fireball as a supernatural ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. The save DC is Charisma based. At level 15, she can use it at will. At level 12, the damage dice limit becomes 15 instead of 10.

    Flight(Su): At level 12, the Arsonist gains the ability to fly at a speed equal to 1 1/2 times her land speed. Her maneuverability is average, and increases by one step at levels 15 and 18.

    Fire Storm(Su): At level 13, an Arsonist can use Fire Storm as a supernatural ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier. The save DC is Charisma based. At level 18, she can use it at will.

    Intense Heat(Su): At level 15, fires the Arsonist lights deal damage as if they were Maximized, and cannot be extinguished without her permission, save for a Quench spell cast by someone with a CL higher than the Arsonist's class level. This ability does not apply to instantaneous fire abilities.

    Sheath of Flame(Su): At level 16, anybody who successfully attacks the Arsonist takes 1d6 fire damage for each point of Charisma bonus. A reflex save with a DC of 15 + her Charisma modifier halves the damage.

    Summon Elemental(Su): At level 18, an Arsonist can use Summon Monster IX or Summon Elemental Monolith as a supernatural ability a number of times per day equal to her Charisma modifier. She may only use this ability to summon elementals with the fire subtype. The duration is doubled as if Extended. Alternatively, she may spend a use of this ability to cast Elemental Swarm, with duration as if Extended, and the casting time and time you must wait between appearance of elementals halved. She may still only summon elementals with the fire subtype with this ability.

    Meteor Swarm(Su): At level 20, an Arsonist can use Fiery Burst as a supernatural ability a number of times per day equal to her Charisma modifier. The save DC is Charisma based.

    Idíōma

    Put an optional image of your class here!

    "Having a terrible day?" Zacariah Pontiferous the Idíōma

    Ladies and gentlemen of the court often lead noble lives following the norms and guidelines of society. There are a few that understand but find the normality of it all boring. These souls make up the ranks of the idíōma, Standing out in a crowd with their abnormal turn of phrase or eccentric demeanor. Many find them interesting distraction. Still there are more conventional persons who would hold them with contempt for their disregard accepted paradigms.

    Adventures: Many idíōma find traveling a worth while diversion as well as giving the more conventional conventionist time to breathe. Other idíōma take to adventuring as a way to find a place more accepting of their particular brand of eccentricity. Adventuring heroes need a face and someone to perpetuate their name among the more notables after all, and bards can be unreliable sort.

    Characteristics: Idíōma are talented socialites and tend to be well known even before adventuring. Weather through force of personality or family ties they know many in high or sometimes low places. They favor more social skills but often learn the basic tricks of a street magician to aid in their daily distractions. They have developed a hidden way of manipulating their world through subtle manipulation and sometimes outright illusion.

    Alignment: Due to their capricious nature idíōma tend toward chaotic alignments, but they vary widely from well meaning souls that have the gift of gab to devious orchestrater of a coup.

    Religion: What deities or ideals your class follows, if any, and why.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Other Classes: How your class relates to other classes, positively or negatively, and why.

    Adaptation: How a DM might change your class to fit into their campaign or unique world setting.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XXXVIII - I Ain't No Idiom

    The Idiomancer

    "See that? That's a spade."
    - John the Idiomancer, of a spade

    Idiomancers are magi who, for no particular reason, have chosen to tie themselves to the theme of idioms in the most literal way possible because that helps them feel good about themselves.

    Adventures: Idiomancers don't need a reason to adventure - it's all in a day's work for them, after all.

    Characteristics: Idiomancers can use their spells either to produce an effect in accordance with what the idiom means, or the overly literal meaning which may or may not be as useful.

    Alignment: Any nonchaotic - only stuck-up literalists need apply.

    Religion: Usually none - most idiomancers lost their religion the first time they got angry.

    Background: Idiomancers are officially sworn in under an eclipse which happens quite rarely, which they insist turns the moon slightly blue - that is, once in a blue moon.

    Races: While joining the idiomancers is just human nature, any race can become an idiomancer.

    Other Classes: Idiomancers complete ridiculousness makes other classes wary of them.

    Role: Idiomancers produce a variety of weird and wonderful spell effects which means that they usually have the right tool for the job.

    Adaptation: Idiomancer is weird and doesn't fit into your setting by default. The easiest way to handle this is to get over it.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Idiomancers have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Charisma is most important, followed by constitution and dexterity in either order.
    Alignment: Any nonchaotic
    Hit Die: d4
    Starting Age: As bard
    Starting Gold: As sorcerer

    Class Skills
    The idiomancer's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Speak Language (None) and Spellcraft (Int).

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the idiomancer.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    The Idiomancer is proficient with all simple weapons and no kind of armour or shield.

    Spellcasting
    The idiomancer casts spells exactly like a sorcerer, but learns spells from the idiomancer spell list, not the sorcerer list. The idiomancer learns as many spells as a sorcerer, except the level before the sorcerer would learn any spells of a spell level, the idiomancer learns a single spell of that level.

    Idiomancer spells have many of their characteristics differ depending on which version is cast, such as "Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting]//Conjuration (Summoning)". If the first version of the spell is cast, use the characteristics before the double-slash (The // between the ] and the C in the example), and if the second version is cast, use the characteristics after. For example, if this spell were cast in the second mode, it's a conjuration spell. If has the summoning subschool but not the mind-affecting descriptor. It's not an enchantment or a compulsion.

    Best of Both Worlds
    Once per day per 3 idiomancer levels, the idiomancer can cast a spell from the idiomancer spell list and have both of the effects activate. That is, instead of choosing one, choose both. Use either cast time and either set of components. Each school, duration, target/effect/area, save and spell resistance entry applies to that half of the spell, so you may end up with a spell which allows some characters, but not others, to defend using spell resistance.

    Idiomancer Spells

    0lvl:

    Cat out of the Bag
    Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting]//Conjuration (Summoning)

    Level: Idiomancer 0

    Target: Only one
    Duration: Instantaneous//1 round/level

    Spell Resistance: Yes//No
    To let the cat out of the bag: To reveal hidden information; to expose a secret.

    Choose one:
    - The target spends their next available free action telling you the information weighing on their mind. This may not necessarily be a secret but does tell you what the creature most cares about.
    - This spell acts much as summon monster I, except that the summoned creature is a perfectly normal housecat and it can only be summoned at the exit to a bag, sack, or similar storage device.

    Get off my Back
    Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-affecting]//Evocation [Force]

    Level: Idiomancer 0
    Components: V, S//-
    Casting Time: 1 Standard Action//1 swift action.
    Range: Short (25 ft + 5 ft/level)//0 ft
    Target: One creature//One creature pinning you
    Duration: 1 round/level (D)//Instantaneous

    To get off one's back: To leave someone alone, to desist in harassing or irritating them.

    Choose one:
    - The creature attempts to leave any conversation with the caster at the next opportunity and refuses to be engaged in further conversation by the caster.
    - The creature stops pinning you. You lose the pinned condition and remain grappled.

    Level: Idiomancer 0
    Components: V, S
    Casting Time: 1 Standard Action

    Target: 1 creature
    Duration: 1 hour/level or until discharged//1 round/level
    Saving Throw: None
    Spell Resistance: Yes
    To add insult to injury: To inflict a minor inconvenience which becomes worse combined with a greater inconvenience which is already occurring.

    Choose one:
    - The target suffers some minor indignity at the next applicable time when they're suffering a greater problem which is heightened by the presence of the lesser. The DM should be creative when deciding what occurs, but this version of the spell is useless in combat.
    - The creature is shaken by a vicious insult if they have fewer than half their hit points remaining. The effect ends if at any point the creature has more than half their hit points, or exactly half their hit points, at any point during the duration.

    "With Silver Bells, Cockle Shells, and Magic all in a row." - Mary, a Contrary Gardener, when questioned about the efficacy of her gardening

    Contrary Gardeners are not your garden variety class. They are no Always Animal Druids, no Holier Than Thou Cleric, no Master Blaster Sorcerer, no Run Away Rope Trick Wizard, nor are they the failed Warlock or endlessly complex Binder, but rather something that samples a bit from all of them, without ever truly using spells, all to focus on one thing: plants, and their many glorious forms.

    Adventures: Why your class might adventure.

    Characteristics: What your class is capable of.

    Alignment: What alignment or alignments your class may have and why.

    Religion: What deities or ideals your class follows, if any, and why.

    Background: How you become part of your class and why.

    Races: What races most often have members of your class, as well as any races that cannot join, along with why.
