    Default [Pathfinder 2nd Edition] Binder Archetype

    BINDER
    You have delved into the occult and learned how to bind vestiges. Vestiges are spirits cast out of the cycle of life and death, often cast beyond the planes by circumstance and sealed from existence with knowledge being the only key to return them to the great sphere. Through esoteric study you now hold that key.


    FEAT 2
    BINDER DEDICATION
    Prerequisites Charisma 16, trained in Occult
    You gain the ability to bind vestige through use of ritual. To contact a vestige, you must draw its unique seal visibly on a surface, making the image at least 5 feet across. Drawing a seal requires the ability to mark a surface and 1 minute of concentration. Once the deal is drawn, you must perform a ritual requiring an action to summon the corresponding vestige. This action requires you touch the seal and call out the vestige using both its name and its title. Once this action has been performed a manifestation of the vestige appears in the sealís space, after which point you have 1 round to address the vestige or it disappears. To make a pact with the summoned vestige, you must make a binding check. You are considered Trained in Binding and apply your Charisma modifier to this check. This process requires 1 minute, but you can choose to make a rushed binding check as an action at a -4 penalty. The DC for this check is equal to 13 + the Vestige's Level x 2. No one can use an aid action for this check. Succeed or fail, you gain the powers granted by the vestige for 24 hours and you cannot end this early. If you fail the binding check, the vestige influence your personality and actions, as described in their description. If you attempt to resist its influences, you take a -1 penalty on checks made until that vestige leaves you. If your check is successful, the vestige does not assert any influence over your actions nor your personality. As long as you have a vestige bound, you manifest a specific sign of its presence. This sign is real, not an illusory or shapechanging effect. You may conceal or reveal this effect as an action, but only if you succeeded on your binding check.
    You are allowed to bind any 1st level vestige, and gain an ability marked with an asterisk (*) in its entry. The DC of abilities granted by your bound vestige is equal to your Class DC. Abilities granted by a vestige are Occult in nature and, unless otherwise stated, require an action to use. Abilities granted that replicate a spell or power are always treated as having a spell-level equal to half of your level and are always heightened if they have a heightened entry. Occult is a signature skill for you.

    FEAT 4
    BASIC SOUL BINDING
    Prerequisites Binder Dedication
    When you bind a vestige you gain all of the abilities listed in its entry. At 6th level, you gain access to 2nd level vestiges. At 8th level, you gain access to 3rd level vestiges. In addition, if you don't already have one, you gain a pool of 1 Focus Point, which you can Refocus by communing with your Vestige. This Focus Point can be spent on any non-passive abilities granted by your Vestige, unless otherwise stated.

    FEAT 4
    EXPLOIT VESTIGE
    Prerequisites Binder Dedication
    While binding a vestige you may select one of the vestigeís abilities to forgo. You gain a spell slot of any level up the highest you can cast, or you gain 1 additional Focus Point. If you utilize this ability, you take a -2 penalty to your Binding check.
    Special If you possess the Patron Vestige feat and use this feat on your patron vestige, you automatically fail your binding check.

    FEAT 4
    PATRON VESTIGE
    Prerequisites Binder Dedication
    Select one vestige that you have previously bound. That vestige now is your patron. You have access to all abilities granted by this vestige. If you possess the Basic Soul Binding feat, you instead treat your Class DC as 1 point higher for the purposes of using abilities granted by this vestige. When binding this vestige you automatically succeed at the binding check.
    Special If you belong to a class that requires that you have a patron deity, you now treat your patron vestige as your patron deity. If you possess a domain, it must be changed to one associated with your patron and you may only use it if you have your patron vestige bound. You may change you patron vestige, but it must be one that you have previously bound. This act should be considered roughly similar to changing your patron deity. Divine abilities granted from a that require you to have a patron deity are now treated as coming from the occult tradition instead. This does not change the spell list you have access to. If the vestige has a Special Requirement that restricts you from doing something, such as binding a specific vestige, these restrictions are treated as your patron's Anathema. Unless otherwise stated, all vestiges have Dagger as their favored weapon.

    FEAT 6
    EXPEL VESTIGE
    Prerequisites Binder Dedication
    Once per day you can attempt to expel a vestige to which you are bound. To do so you must draw its seal and go through the entire process used to summon it. If you succeed on the binding check this time, you expel the vestige and can summon a different one in its place if you wish. Regardless of success or failure, you take a -4 penalty on your next binding check with any vestige, and the next time you attempt to bind the vestige you expelled.
    Special If you possess the Patron Vestige feat and attempt to expel your patron vestige, you must attempt a binding check when expelling them. if you fail this check the vestige is still expelled, but the next time you bind your patron vestige you do not automatically succeed at the new binding check, suffering the same -4 penalty as normal.


    FEAT 8
    RAPID PACT MAKING
    Prerequisites Binder Dedication
    You no longer take a penalty for attempting to make a rushed binding check.


    FEAT 12
    EXPERT SOUL BINDING
    Prerequisites Basic Soul Binding, master in Occult
    You gain the ability to bind 4th level vestiges. You become an expert for the purpose of Binding and utilizing abilities granted by a bound vestige. At 14th level you gain the ability to bind 5th level vestiges. At 16th level you gain the ability to bind 6th level vestiges.


    FEAT 18
    MASTER SOUL BINDING
    Prerequisites Expert Soul Binding, legendary in Occult
    You gain the ability to bind 7th level vestiges. You become a master for the purpose of Binding and utilizing abilities granted by a bound vestige. At 20th level you gain the ability to bind 8th level vestiges.





    VESTIGES
    Below are Vestiges, updated and altered for use with Pathfinder 2nd Edition's Binder Archetype, as detailed above.

    I would like to, at some point, give all the vestiges new names and variations on their legends to help them fit into Pathfinder's setting. For the time being we are using their original names because it helps in translation. Once the mechanics are better hammered out, the fluff can altered.

    Hah. I appreciate the reference, both of you. That said, no.. Neither.

    At this point I'm looking for feedback on what is there and some ideas to kick around. I will be gradually converting vestiges over, but right now we have the first two levels so theres enough to go on at least as far a number of the feats are concerned.

    You gain the ability to bind 4th level vestiges. You become an expert for the purpose of Binding and utilizing abilities granted by a bound vestige. At 14th level you gain the ability to bind 5th level vestiges. At 8th level you gain the ability to bind 6th level vestiges.
    so at level 12 you can bind level 6 vestiges but not level 5 vestiges?

    Good catch. Thank you. That was a horrible typo, but it has been fixed. This is one of the reasons I wanted community feedback before continuing: 3rd party proof reading.

    I have now completed all of the Vestiges, however we are still not done here. One, you may notice that only up to 6th are in the original post. Sadly, this is due to space constraints, so here are the rest:

When you attack, the victim my make a Fortitude save against the paralysis or death effect. If they fail against the paralysis effect, they are rendered helpless and unable to act for 1d6 +9 rounds.

    These do not include the "non-core" vestiges, such as things introduced on the Wizards of the Coast Website, Dragon Magazine, or anyone's created vestiges. We'll get to those eventually.


    At this point however, I would like work to turn towards two things: Altering these vestiges for balance, and creating new names (and stories as needed) for these vestiges so they can fit in Pathfinder's setting. A creature from the far realm may instead be from the Dark Tapestry. A follower of Olidammara wouldn't exist, but perhaps a follower of a different good humored god of thieves tried pulling something. I know these may not all fit, given I'm already pushing things here, so once we start filling in stories I may store full entries elsewhere. But for now, mechanically, they work here.

    Possible 1st level Vestige retooling, replacing Amon.

    ARODEN, THE BROKEN PROPHET
    Level: 1st
    Once the living god, a deity of humanity and innovation, his disappearance left all of his followers in silence and disarray. Now he takes the form of a twisted vestige,
    Legend: A hundred years ago, Aroden's followers anticipated the arrival of their god as foretold under the Starfall Doctrine, marking the beginning of a new age. Instead storms racked the world for weeks and when the clouds parted he was gone without a trace. Scholars have ever since debated just what happened to him, whether he was slain or something else. Whatever the truth, Aroden's essence lingeres in the form of a vestige, his symbol a recent discovery. Once the god of humanity in all of their best qualities, he now exists as a spirit of storms and knowledge, broken. Binder scholars have turned to him for answers when called, but none, even those who revere him as he was in life, have heard the answer.
    Manifestation: Aroden manifests in a swirling torrent of clouds arising from the iris of his seal. What appears briefly as Aroden as many have depicted him quickly becomes a mockery of that very image. His form waterlogged and emaciated, his features appearing with disturbing proportions, all sculpted from the clouds. A pair of tall horns flow up from his head, appearing not unlike the headdress and helmets worn by many of his devoted. When he speaks his voice it howls like rushing winds and booms like thunder.
    Sign: One of your eyes clouds over, turning a milky white in hue.
    Granted Abilities:
    Breath of the Storm: You vomit forth a line of electricity. This line extends 10 feet and deals 1d6 + Charisma electricity damage. Each creature in the area to attempt a save. A successful Reflex save halves this damage and a critical success negates. On a critical failure the creature takes double damage. You may expend an additional focus point to increase the damage dealt by 1d6.
    Darkvision*: You gain darkvision, allowing you to see in darkness and dim light as well as you can see in bright light, though your vision in darkness is black and white. This is a passive effect.
    Horns of the Azlanti: As an action you can sprout a tall pair of horns. Treat them as a natural melee weapon that deals 1d6 points of damage, with the charge and deadly (d6) properties. You are trained with them. Growing them and dismissing them is an action. This is a passive effect.

    With pathfinder 2nd edition out, it was high time to dig this back up. Mechanically things are unchanged enough in the areas this refers to it does not appear I have to change a thing.

    Edit: Ok. I had to eat my words. There were changes and so I've gone through and made all the ones needed that I caught.
