    Default The Golden Alchemist (NOT MY CREATION; credit to Magicyop)

    Reposting this classic tier 1 homebrew class as it has been messed up by the forum change. Magicyop hasn't been active here since 2012 but I don't want this class to be lost. Added in some minor edits (e.g. save DC for Turn to Gold, minor prettifying edits, etc.) but tried to retain original text as much as possible

    The Golden Alchemist



    "There is no force in this world stronger than the ability to buy off your enemies. Control the cash, control the world."
    -Tychus the Opulent, a Golden Alchemist

    Where would any adventurer be without bags of money? Adventurers require only the highest quality equipment, and to get that, they need serious cash. It's no surprise that a group of sorcerers began to do research into a brand of magic specializing in money, specifically, the almighty gold piece. After years of struggling, they mastered the ability to change ordinary objects into gold... they were never unhappy again. The path of the Golden Alchemist may not be as exciting as that of a fighter or a wizard, but in the end, you'll be the one laughing all the way to the bank, and living in despicable luxury.

    Making a Golden Alchemist
    Golden Alchemists probably can't do things by themselves. They lack the sheer power to take on most endeavors, but in a group, they can easily finance their companions. Thus, as a Golden Alchemist, having good connections is important-- but with your wealth, you may find it relatively easy to make friends...

    Abilities: Intelligence and charisma are important to a Golden Alchemist. Charisma will help you barter better, and determines the DC for many of your abilities. Intelligence is the ability tied with Appraise, which helps you to roll in even more dough.

    Races: Any reasonably intelligent race can become a Golden Alchemist, though humans are most likely in this case, since they seem to have a love of wealth far greater than any other race.

    Alignment: Golden Alchemists have been seen of every alignment. Some use their wealth to help the needy, some use it to pull strings and cause harm. Some use their wealth to build a strong society, others to tear it down.

    Dream of Wealth (Su)
    The Golden Alchemist is obsessed with wealth. As they grow in power, they master mystical abilities based around the use of their wealth and the acquisition of more. At first level, you learn two of the 0th level abilities listed below, usable 2/day as a supernatural ability. Every time you gain another Dream of Wealth ability, all of your lower level abilities gain one more use. When an ability would reach 6 uses per day, it instead becomes usable at will. You learn one 1st level ability at level 3, usable 1/day, and one ability of the next level up every 3 levels. You may choose an ability of a lower level if you like, instead. At any level where you would learn a new Dream of Wealth ability, you may swap out a single one of your lower level abilities for a different one of the same level.

    Turn to Gold (Su)
    The Golden Alchemist masters the art of transmuting other objects into gold. Once per day for every Golden Alchemist level, starting at level 2, the alchemist may touch an object and change it into gold. If it is attended or magical, it gets a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 class level + Charisma modifier). Each use may effect an object with a maximum weight of 10 pounds per class level. An object which is changed into gold loses any properties based on material it had before, and gains a new value of 10 gp per pound of weight. Transmuting an object to gold is a full-round action. Though the weight of the object changes due to becoming gold, the worth of the object is based on the original weight.

    Golden Touch (Su)
    An alchemist is a master of changing objects into gold-- even other creatures. A number of times per day as listed on the table, the alchemist may make a touch attack against a foe. The opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 class level + Charisma Modifier) or begin to transform into gold. This has an effect like a flesh to stone spell, except the subject becomes gold instead of stone. A creature successfully changed to gold is worth a number of coins as shown on the following table:

    Spoiler: Creature Size & Value

    Creature Size Creature Value (GP)
    Fine 20
    Diminutive 40

    Medium 320
    Large 640
    Huge 1,280
    Gargantuan 2,560
    Colossal 5,120

    Certain other factors can modify the value of a creature that has been transmuted to gold, as shown below. All modifiers are cumulative.

    Factor Value Modifier
    Creature is well-known x2
    Creature is beautiful to look at x2
    Creature is in particularly interesting pose x1.5

    This ability affects constructs and undead normally.

    Secret of Metal (Ex)
    By listening to the whispers of the metal that they love so much, an alchemist can uncover secrets, which they use to strengthen their own gold. Every 5 levels, the Golden Alchemist may choose one of the following secrets. From now on, any object or creature turned to gold possesses this property.

    Spoiler: Secrets of Metal
    Show
    Secret of Iron: Golden object gains +2 AC, and +2 on all saves. A golden weapon gains +1 damage.

    Secret of Steel: Golden object gains +4 on Fortitude saves, and +1 attack if used as a weapon. Gains hardness 1 (stacks with all other hardness) and +2 resistance to sunder attempts or other attempts to destroy the object.

    Secret of Mithral: Golden object weighs only half as much and provides +2 max Dex bonus if used as armor. Gives +2 attack if used as a weapon. -10% spell failure chance. Armor check penalty is 2 less (minimum 0)

    Secret of Silver: Golden object is worth 1.5 times as much. Gains +1 max Dex bonus, but -1 AC and takes -1 penalty on damage if used as a weapon. Bypasses DR as if it was silver.

    Secret of Cold Iron: Golden object gains +2 damage if used as a weapon. Gains hardness 1 (stacks with all other hardness) and +20% hit chance if used against incorporeal foes. Bypasses DR as if it was cold iron.

    Secret of Adamant: Golden object gains +3 AC and hardness 7 (stacks with all other hardness). Gains +1 hit and damage if used as a weapon.

    Secret of Deep Crystal: Psionic user may invest up to 6 power points in golden object. Every 2 power points increases AC by 1 and damage by 1d6.

    Secret of Thinaun: Your gold can absorb the souls of the dead in the same way Thinaun can. If you touch a golden object to a dead body, the soul is absorbed into the gold. The soul gets a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 class level + Charisma modifier) to avoid this. Each gold object can hold one soul.

    Secret of Platinum: The damage dice of a golden weapon is increased one step. (From d4 to d6, d6 to d8, etc.) Golden objects are worth 1.5 times as much.

    My Precious (Su)
    You may add a special quality to a single golden object. This object becomes instantly desirable to everyone except for you. Anyone seeing it must make a Will save, with the DC equal to your result on an Appraise check when creating the precious object, or want the object. They will do anything in their power to possess the object, but if that would require doing something they would not normally do, they get a second Will save with a +5 bonus. Every time they fail one of these Will saves, they gain a cumulative -2 penalty on their next Will save to resist the same object, as they sink deeper and deeper into desire for the object. If they manage to acquire the object, the Will saves are for them to resist the desire to keep it in their possession. You may create a second precious object, but only if you get the first precious object back and remove the precious quality from it. You may reclaim the precious quality after a week without touching the object, if you have not already done so, from a range of 5 miles/level. If it has been two weeks, you can reclaim the quality if the object is on the same plane. If it has been three or more weeks you can reclaim the quality no matter where the object is.

    Magic Gold (Ex)
    Your gold takes on mystical qualities, making it more useful to you. Anything you turn into gold may have a total of magical properties equal to the amount shown on the table. Changing the properties which you imbue your gold with takes 12 hours of meditation.

    Value Bending (Ex)
    You can make people think your possessions are worth more than they actually are. Once per day you may make an Appraise check and a Bluff check, and combine your two results. Increase the worth of one of your objects by (the combined result times ten) gold pieces.

    Sustained by Money (Ex)
    You can receive sustenance equal to one meal with food and drink simply by sucking on a piece of gold for fifteen minutes.

    Consider a Donation (Su)
    You may lull someone into giving you money for basically no reason. Once per day, you may force someone you have been speaking with for at least a minute to give you a gift of gold pieces. The amount you can make them give you is equal to the result of a Diplomacy check times ten. They may make a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 Class level + Charisma modifier) to resist. This is a supernatural, mind-affecting ability.

    Gilt Enigma (Ex or Su)
    You have reached the very height of your craft. Choose one of the two abilities listed below. You may not change your choice later.

    Spoiler: Gilt Enigmas
    Show
    Hand of Midas (Su): You gain a great power, and a great curse. Anything you touch is turned to gold. In practical terms, this means that you can use Turn to Gold and Golden Touch at will, but you may NOT suppress this ability. Anything solid which you touch instantly becomes gold, even your friends. You may not circumvent this ability in any way short of epic magic, and then only with the express permission of your Dungeon Master.

    Golden Ascendancy (Ex): You reach the pinnacle of your craft, and transform yourself permanently into moving gold. This acts in many ways like a permanent version of the Golden Transformation dream. You gain a permanent +4 natural armor, and 4 hardness (stacks with all other hardness.) You gain the positive effects of all your Secrets of Metal. You gain +2 to your Charisma score, +2 to your Strength score, and a +4 bonus on all Diplomacy checks. If you choose, you may make a Disguise check with a +5 bonus to disguise the fact that your flesh is gold, though your skin is still very bright. If someone slays you permanently, your body is worth a fortune. Finally, you cease to age at all.

It is otherwise identical to your golden touch. Spell resistance still applies. You may only effect a target who currently has hp below a certain limit. This limit is equal to 1/2 your class level, times your charisma modifier.

    Glory to the Gold
    Use time: Standard action
    Effect: As allure of gold, except much more powerful. A foe's mind is drawn into a gold object, making the entire world seem unimportant by comparison. The foe is permanently fascinated by the object, even if you drop it, as long as they have line of sight to the object. While they are fascinated, anything you ask them to do counts as a suggestion, except that you may ask them to do unreasonable things. However, anything that would make them stop looking at the gold breaks the effect. If nothing gets in the way, the foe may stare into the gold without care until they die from not eating.

    At level 25 and every 5 levels afterward, you gain another Secret of Metal. You may either choose a normal Secret of Metal, or choose one of the Epic secrets below:

    Spoiler: Epic Secrets of Metal
    Show
    Secret of Serren: Your gold is able to interact with the incorporeal normally, as if it were under the effects of a Ghost Touch enchantment. Further, you act as though your gold is perpetually under the effects of a Wraithstrike spell, in that any attacks you make with it are touch attacks.

    Secret of Aurorum: Your gold gains regeneration equal to 1/2 your class level. Since it is nonliving, it gains no special resistance to lethal damage, but it heals a good amount of damage each round, and if you bring two pieces of a broken gold object together, they reform and seal into the unblemished golden object.

    Secret of Starmetal: Your gold gains +3 AC and hardness 7 (stacks with all other hardness), and a +1 to attack and damage if used as a weapon, just like adamant. Further, all extraplanar creatures who touch your gold take 1d6 untyped damage each round and must make a DC 10 Fortitude Save or be instantly killed and turned to ash.

    Secret of Stygian Ice: Your gold chills the air around it. As a free action you may cause any of your gold objects to radiate an aura with a radius of 10 feet that causes the temperature to drop by up to 10 degrees. Further, at your command, as a swift action, the gold will burn with cold, and cause those touching it to take 1d6 cold damage and 2 WIS damage each round they are in contact with it or touch it. Even when both these effects are off, your gold always feels rather cold to the touch.

    Feats
    Cash Casting
    Prerequisites: Golden Alchemist 1, Caster Level 3.
    Effect: Any and all material components and focuses that you need to cast your spells are unneeded. Instead, you may simply expend a number of gold pieces equal to the value of the needed focus or component at the time of your casting the spell. You additionally gain a 5 gp discount on all material components, and the price you must spend on any focus is halved.

    Host of Dreams
    Prerequisites: Dream of Wealth class ability.
    Effect: Choose one Dream of Wealth ability that you know. You gain one extra use of that ability. As usual, if you would gain 6 uses of the ability, it instead becomes at will.
    Special: You may take this feat a number of times equal to half your Intelligence modifier (minimum 1.)

    Shining Ray
    Prerequisites: Turn to Gold class ability.
    Effect: You may now use your Turn to Gold and Golden Touch class abilities at a range of 10 feet. (In which case, these attacks count as a ray, they require a ranged touch attack instead of a touch attack.) You are not required to use this ability when you use those class abilities, which means that if you possess the Hand of Midas class ability, you do not turn everything within 10 ft. of you to gold.
    Special: You may take this feat multiple times. Each time, the maximum range of your ray increases by 10 feet.

    Gilded Blast
    Prerequisites: Shining Ray.
    Effect: You may choose to use your Shining Ray attack as a line. The line has the same range as your ray attack. Enemies must make a Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 your HD + your Charisma modifier) to avoid the attack. If they succeed on their save, they avoid the blast completely.

    Dense Gold
    Prerequisites: Golden Alchemist 8.
    Effect: All creatures that you turn to gold have their value doubled from the value noted for their size. However, because you are making your gold literally more dense, the weight of these creatures also doubles, so they may be more difficult to transport around.

    Transmute Return
    Prerequisites: Golden Alchemist 5.
    Effect: By performing a ritual requiring a DC 20 Craft (Alchemy) check and four hours of preparation, in addition to alchemical facilities, you may create a solution which will transform a gold object soaked in it back to its original state. In the case of an object or creature which you converted to gold, it returns to life. In the case of something that was gold to begin with, roll on this table to see what the gold transmutes to. Each dose negates one medium creature worth of gold.
    Spoiler: Transmute Return Results
    Show
    d% Effect
    0-30 Stone
    31-40 Living Flesh
    41-70 Useless Chalk
    71-75 Platinum
    76-85 Glass
    86-95 Coal
    96-99 Solid Quintessence

    All solution that you create spoils after 48 hours if it is not used, so it is impossible to stockpile it.

    Flesh to Stone on steroids at 4th level seems excessive to me.

    Yeah, but I think the OP rationalised it as being a melee attack with very limited uses (compare monk and Stunning Fist). This was certainly intended as a uniquely tier 1 class haha!

    Something fun:

    At 18th level, if you have Summon Money V, Host of Dreams (Summon Money V) x3, and Astral Mart VII, you can spend 16 hours a day generating 168,000 gp per day, then buying rings of three wishes and stockpiling them. Not bad for a class with no actual spell slots!

    Yeah, that'd be a rather morbid business!

    Also another way this class breaks WBL is Glitter Like Gold - turn a single gold piece into an everburning torch worth 110 gp!
