HD: d4


Prowess: 2 per level


Skills: A shaper uses the Tinkerer skill set and chooses one other set. A shaper gets 2 plus their Intelligence modifier skill points per level.


Proficiencies: A shaper is proficient with all simple weapons and with light armor, but not shields.


Shifts:

A first-level shaper knows one shift from the list below and gains a new shift at second level and every two levels after that (at 2nd, 4th, 6th, and so on). A shaper uses these shifts to craft spells using the Matter Shift ability, below. Each seed has a number of different abilities available for purchase at a certain point value, as well as having a fundamental shape and saving throw type.


Matter Shifting(Su):

As a standard action, a shaper can craft and cast a spell. By activating this ability, the shaper immediately gains a number of Matter Points (MP) equal to their shaper level plus their Int modifier. These points may be immediately spent upon shaping a spell from the shifts a shaper knows. Any points left over at the end of the shaper's turn dissipate harmlessly. Any changes made by Matter Shifting are permanent unless otherwise Stated in the shift description.


When crafting a spell, a shaper may purchase any number of abilities from shifts he knows as long as he can afford their total cost. Thus a fifth level shaper with a 16

Intelligence and who knows the Thrust, Hole, and Heat shifts could use this ability as a standard action to obtain 8 SP. With that 8 SP, he could then cause his spell to deal 1d6 fire (for 3 MP) and 1d6 weapon (for 3 MP), but would have two points left over. If he instead had an 18 Intelligence, using this ability would net him 9 MP, which he could then use to cast a spell that dealt 3d6 fire (9 MP), or a different spell that dealt 2d6 weapon (6 MP) and Create a 5 by 5 foot hole(3 MP). Any combination, therefore, is possible, as long as the shaper knows the correct shifts and has enough MP.


If, when utilizing multiple shaper, multiple base shapes are used, default to the first shape present on this list: touch, ray, line, cone, sphere. An exception to this rule is when a shaper specifically changes a spell's shape, such as the Sphere or Line shifts.


If multiple types of saves are needed, then the target must make separate saving throws (one for each type required) or suffer the effects tied to that save.

Casting a spell in this fashion provokes an attack of opportunity. The save DC for a spell cast in this fashion is 10 + 1/2 the shaper's level + his Intelligence modifier. Unless

otherwise noted, the range on a shaper's spell using this ability is 25’ plus 5’ per 2 sorcerer levels.


Matter Shifting is affected by arcane spell failure chance. A shaper wearing light armor and not using a shield may ignore his armor's spell failure chance.


Bonus Feat:

At 2nd level and every 4 levels thereafter (6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th), the shaper gains a bonus feat chosen from the following list: Dodge, Combat Casting, Extra Shift, Extra Shift Secret, Intelligent Targeting, Perceptive Spellweaving, Reflexive Spellweaving, Residual Matter Shifting, Skill Focus, Weapon Focus. He must still meet all of the feat's prerequisites.


Flux(Su):

All Changes Resulting from a flux revert to their state before the flux if they leave your possession for more rounds then your Int modifier. Any attempt to use this in combat requires a successful touch attack and the target is able to make a fortitude save for any items in its possession DC=10+1/2 your Lvl+your int mod

Tier 1: At 1st Lvl, you gain the ability to Mend broken mundane items as the spell, this ability may be used at will

Tier 2: At 4th Lvl, you gain the ability to Make Mundane items at will, You must have a Item of similar composition to make a new item. Anything you make with this ability may be made masterwork quality ex. to make a Mwk grappling hook you would need a length of rope as well as a piece of the desired metal

Tier 3: At 7th Lvl, You gain the ability to change an items composition at will. This ability only allows change to non magical materials ex. You may make Iron into Tin.

Tier 4: At 10th Lvl, you gain the ability to change the enchantment of a item so long as its enchantment lvl stays the same. This ability may be used at will.

Tier 5: At 13th Lvl, you gain the ability to change a Magical item into any other magical item of a lesser value. This ability may be used at will. (no being a smart ass and saying artifacts have no cost. This ability does not allow the changing of artifacts.)

Tier 6: At 19th Lvl, The time allowed before a flux is reversed is increased to you lvl, as opposed to your Int mod


Shift Secret (Ex):

At fifth level and each three levels thereafter (8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 20th), the shaper gains the knowledge of the inner workings of one of his shifts. When casting a spell using his Matter Shifting class feature, he may apply one or more shift secrets to spells that he casts.

In order to apply a shift secret, he must utilize the shift that the secret is associated with: therefore, a shaper could not cast a spell that dealt 2d6 cold damage (using the Cool shift) and apply the Heat shifts's Melting secret to the spell. However, if the spell dealt 2d6 cold damage (using the Cool seed) and 1d6 fire damage (using the Heat seed), the shaper could apply the Melting secret.

To apply a secret, a shaper spends 1 MP when casting the spell.

Some secrets can be learned from multiple shifts. If this is the case, you must only learn the secret once to be able to apply it to any applicable shifts, and may only apply it once even if you use two or more of the parent shifts in a spell. For instance, if you learn the Strong secret from the Fire shift, you may apply the Strong secret when using the Acid shift, and when using both the Acid and Fire shifts you may only apply the Strong secret once.
