Wishcrafter Archetype


Agha, can you count the stars? No? Then you cannot count the jinn either, for they are everywhere. Most cannot see the young ones – the dust devil, the dancer’s flame, the leaping brook, the shifting sand – but every dune, fire, oasis and breeze has its genie, every typhoon its enraged marid master. The world is a place of genies, and we merely its visitors.

-Faidal al-Bashiri, the Barber of Al-Bashir

Wishcrafters




Wishcrafters are born with a talent for manipulating reality inherited from their efreeti ancestors. However, like the genies they are descended from, wishcrafters can only draw upon this power to fulfill the desires of others.


Class Features

A wishcrafter has the following class features:


Wishbound Arcana (Sp)

Wishcrafters are born with an innate talent for manipulating reality inherited from their Efreeti ancestors. However, like the genies they are descended from, Wishcrafters can only draw upon this power to fulfill the desires of others.

As a standard action a Wishcrafter can fulfill a wish of a non-genie creature, other than herself. A creature can make a wish as a free action. The wishcrafter must be able to hear and understand the wish in order to use this ability. The wishes fulfillment must duplicate the effect of a spell the sorcerer knows, this effect can additionally be enhanced with up to one meta-magic feat the sorcerer has taken.

A wish does not need to mention the name of a specific spell, but must describe an outcome that can be accomplished by casting a spell the wishcrafter knows (for example, wishing to run faster to receive the effects of expeditious retreat).

A wishcrafter can use this ability once per day at 1st level. This increases to Twice per day at 7th level and Three times per day at 13th level.

This ability replaces the Sorcerer’s bloodline arcana.


Expanded Wishcraft

At 3rd level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the Wishcrafter grows more adept at altering reality to fit the whims of others. She gains two bonus spells known, for use in conjunction with her wishbound arcana ability. These bonus spells may be selected from any spell list, however if these spells are not on the sorcerers spell list, they must be at least at least 2 levels lower than the highest level spell she can cast. If the spell appears on more than one list and is not on the Sorcerers base class list, the spell’s level is considered to be the highest level noted.

A Wishcrafter can only use these spells in conjunction with her wishbound arcana ability, and cannot otherwise cast these spells as part of her daily allotment of Sorcerer spells per day. She cannot use these spells to craft or recharge magic items.

These bonus spells replace the bloodline spells gained by the sorcerer’s bloodline.


Heart’s Desire (Su)

At 7th level, as a swift action, a wishcrafter can force a single creature within 30 feet to confess its deepest desire. The target receives a Will save to negate this effect (DC 10 + 1/2 the wishcrafter’s level + the wishcrafter’s Charisma modifier). On a failed save, the creature must immediately wish aloud in a clear voice for something it truly desires, allowing the wishcrafter to activate her wishbound arcana ability if she knows a spell that can fulfill that wish. This is a mind-affecting effect. Regardless of whether the save is successful, a creature cannot be the target of the same wishcrafter’s heart’s desire ability again for 24 hours. The wishcrafter can use this ability a number of times per day equal to her Charisma bonus.

This ability replaces the bloodline bonus feat gained at 7th level.


Twisted Wish (Su)

At 13th level, a wishcrafter becomes adept at corrupting wishes to negatively affect the creature that wished them. When a wishcrafter affects a creature with a spell using its wish as a spell component, she may twist the wish, applying a –4 penalty to the creature’s saving throws against the spell. The effects of wishes twisted this way are difficult to remove; the DC of caster level checks to dispel them increases by 5.

This ability replaces the bloodline bonus feat gained at 13th level.


Perfect Wishcraft (Sp)

At 19th level, the wishcrafter perfects her ability to manipulate reality. Once per day, she may cast any spell on the sorcerer/wizard spell list as if it were on her list of spells known. Using this ability otherwise has all of the benefits and limitations of the wishbound arcana ability.

This ability replaces the bloodline bonus feat gained at 19th level.
