MysticEdit

I am the whisper carried on the wind, I am the mist in the night, I am the eyes gleaming in the dark, but above all, I am here.
—Deth Serolin, Human Mystic of the Orb

Mystics are spellcasters who have focused their minds unto a certaint way of thinking, turning themselves inward into potent forces of magic. There are 9 ways of thinking that a mystic can follow, and each is best represented as a paticular object, the book, the chalice, the chain, the coin, the key, the mask, the mirror, the orb, and the ring. Each path presents different gifts to the mystic, but no one path can be truely called the "correct" path.

Becoming a Mystic of the BookEdit

A mystic of the book is a man who veiws the world as a story, either one that has already been written, or one that is being written with every moment that passes. These mystics focus themselves on understanding the story of the world and playing their part with conviction. This mindset grants the mystic the ability to move with a decisiveness and finality that few others can achive.

Spellcasting: At each level you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a mystic of the book, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Choice (Ex): As the mystic watches the story of life unfold he becomes aware that choices must always be made, and due to this he becomes sure of the choices he himself makes in a way that few others can achive.

Secondly the mystic gains an insight bonus to attack rolls, AC, and saves versus specific opponents he has fought before equal to the number of times he has encountered this enemy. Thirdly, a mystic never forgets the location of an item he himself has hidden, as long as he hid it after he gained this class feature.

Rewrite (Ex): As the mystic progresses he begins to truely understand the story of life, when he reaches this point he become aware of ways to rewrite the story of the world to better suit his purposes. At third level a mystic of the book gains the ability to target a spell within 20+5 ft./level of him and sacrafice a spell slot to either increase or decrease the DC of the spell by half of the sacrificed spells slots level, this ability can only be used once per round and must be used before any save is made.

Becoming a Mystic of the ChainEdit

Mystics of the chain see the world as nothing more than a single enormous chain of events.

Class FeaturesEdit

All of the following are class features of the mystic of the chain.

Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a mystic of the chain, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Instinct (Ex): As the mystic beholds the worlds event happen around him, he starts to notices the patterns in life, and he becomes adept at predicting moments before they happen, gaining a sort of sixth sense about reality. At first level a mystic of the chain may act normally in a surprise round, no matter the circumstances. Additionally the mystic is never caught flat-footed.

Truth (Ex): As the mystic watches the world and sees cause and effect prove itself over and over again, he learns to see when something just doesn't fit, no matter how well concealed it may be. At second level the mystic gains a +2 bonus on saves made against spells of the illusion school and a bonus on all sense motive checks equal to half of his character level.

Chain (Ex): As the mystic lives his life he begins to understand the true workings of cause and effect, and learns to use these workings to craft a chain of spells. At third level the mystic gains the ability to cast a single spell with a casting time of 1 standard action or less as a full-round action and then cast a second spell that same round as a free action as though it was affected by the quicken spell metamagic feat, the second spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell’s actual level, instead of four levels higher than the spell’s actual level as with the quicken spell metamagic feat. A character who prepare's their spells can prepare a quickened spell this way, having it occupy a slot only two levels higher than normal, but they must still take the necessary actions in order to cast the spell.

Becoming a Mystic of the ChaliceEdit

A man who would follow the path of the mystic of the chalice is a man who veiws the world as a great banquet.

Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a mystic of the chalice, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Optimism (Ex): As the mystic begins to see all the oppurtunities in life, it becomes harder and harder for him to be remotely afraid of something, because why be afraid of something when everything could work out for the better in the end? At first level a mystic of the chalice gains a bonus to saves made against fear effects equal to half his character level.

Musings (Ex): As a mystic of the chalice thinks about the world, he finds inspiration in the smallest things, such as the way a drop of water falls, or how a single sprout can turn into a mighty tree. From these inspirations the mystic finds power, a strength of mind that is only understandable by few. At second level a mystic of the chalice is considered to be 4 levels higher than he is for the purpose of overcoming spell resistance and for qualifing for metamagic and item creation feats.

Drink Deep (Ex): As the the mystic truely begins to tap into the ocean of power in the world around him, he learns to focus himself, and bring forth an incredible display of magic. At third level a mystic of the chalice can take a full-round action once per day to focus the energies around him into a single burst, whenever he takes this full-round action, the next spell he casts is cast with a +5 bonus to caster level.

Becoming a Mystic of the CoinEdit

Mystics of the coin realize that everything in the world has or could have some sort of value to someone or something else in the world. They believe that the impact of an action is subjective, changing depending on a persons opinion or mindset. As someone walks down the path of a mystic of the coin, they steadily become more and more insightful, eventually becoming able to realize the use or value of any object instantly. A mystic of the coin will tend to be rather meticulous and finicky, insisting that everything goes in it's proper place.

Class FeaturesEdit

All of the following are class features of the mystic of the coin.

Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a mystic of the coin, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Worth (Ex): As the mystic of the coin begins to fully realize the value everything has, he also begins to realize the hidden worth in everything. At first level a mystic of the coin considers all items that could be masterwork as such for all intents and purposes, if the item already is masterwork, then this ability does not have any effect. Additionally, if the mystic has had a object in his possession for 2 or more hours, he may treat that item as having twice it's original hardness, or half of it's original hardness as he learns to use it to it's best ability, or discovers it's weak points.

Order (Ex): As the mystic notices the value everything in the world has to different people, he realizes that, in one way or another, everything has it's proper place in the world. At second level the mystic gains a bonus to all saves made against spells or spell-like abilities cast by creatures with a chaotic alignment equal to half his character level. A chaotically aligned mystic still gains this benifit seeing as it comes from a way of viewing the world, and not from a personality.

Bargain (Ex): As the mystic begins to truly realize the hidden values in life, he becomes able to even bargain with his own subconscious mind. At third level as a free action, the mystic can forget any number of spells he once knew, whether by merely wiping his mind clean or erasing a page of his spellbook. After doing this the mystic can sit down for a number of hours equal to the total spell level of the forgotten spells, and research any number of spells whose total spell level is equal to or is less than the total spell level of the forgotten spells. In this manner the mystic can forget 3, 3rd-level spells and then sit down and research for 9 hours in order to learn 9, 1st-level spells. For the purpose of 0-level spells, treat a single 0-level spell as beings worth half of a 1st-level spell. For the purpose of epic spells, treat a single epic spell as being worth 2 9th-level spells. This ability does not affect the number of spells per day the mystic can cast, but instead alters the spells he knows. The researching of spells need not immediately follow the forgetting of the spells, in fact any ammount of time can be taken before the new spells are researched.

Becoming a Mystic of the KeyEdit

A mystic of the key is someone who looks at life as a hallway lined with locked doors, and they're holding all the keys. Mystics of the key veiw everything in terms of what is known and what isn't, and due to this fact, find themselves constantly striving for more knowledge.

The mystic can use this ability a number of times per day equal to his caster level. A character who prepare's their spells can prepare a spell this way, having it occupy a slot two levels lower than normal, but they must still take the necessary actions in order to cast the spell.

Campaign InformationEdit

Playing a MysticEdit

Combat: Mystics are magnificently powerful spellcasters who have it within their power to alter the flow of battle in a single moment. In battle Mystics rarely involve themselves in close range battle, instead choosing to stand away from danger and manipulate the battlefield with arcane energies.

Advancement: Mystics most often try to further their understanding of magic after a time, often taking levels in loremaster or archmage at one point or another. Though certaint mystics may also be drawn to other classes, a mystic of the mask may seek to take levels in rogue for example.

Resources: Mystic do not often organize into groups, instead choosing to watch the world and deepen their understanding in solitude. If the situation arrises that mystics do in fact organize into a larger group, then this group is often treated with respect and sometimes even fear, for an organized group of mystics is bound to be terrifyingly powerful.

Mystics in the WorldEdit

This world is a wilderness that only the wise can map.
—Kirith Isen, Tiefling Mystic of the Mask

Mystics are most often people who are renown for their prowess, yet who seek to live by themselves. Mystics tend to be hard to find and unwilling to help if they are found, instead wanting to remain alone and watch the world from afar. Of course there are also Mystics who are the exact opposite, yet exceedingly odd, sometimes following people around and offering help at the most inordinate moments, other times skipping through a forest full of dangerous creatures. These mystics are strangely still hard to find, yet much more willing to help.

NPC Reactions: When an NPC encounters a mystic for the first time, they probably will not react differently than they would to any other member of the mystics race, seeing as being a mystic does not actually change the beings physical appearance. But when an NPC discovers the power a mystic holds, they may react in any number of ways, apprehension, fear, skeptism, or maybe even indifference.

Mystic LoreEdit

Characters with ranks in Knowledge (Arcana) can research mystics to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.

Knowledge (Arcana)
DC Result
11 Mystics are powerful spellcasters who can manipulate the world around them.
16 Mystics watch the world around them as another would a play.
21 There are many different paths a mystics can take, each one dependant on a certaint way of thinking.
26 Characters who get this result can know the names and locations of specific mystics and items related to them.

Mystics in the GameEdit

Mystics are often mysterious strangers who speak in riddles and lend help to the party at certaint crossroads. The intentions of a mystics are rarely ever revealed, and if they are, then are even more rarely understood. PC's who take levels in mystic start to become distant from the other members of their party and begin to find themselves thinking about the world more as they progress down a certaint path of the mystic, until eventually new power awakens within them, and they realize something about the world around them. PC mystics do not necessarily change their standing in the world when they become mystics, but their personality will undoubtedly change.

Adaptation: Mystics are highly adaptable characters, a mystic could be the wizened hermit living deep living within a series of ancient, abandoned, dwarven tunnels that the players must seek out. A mystic could also be the cloaked and hooded figure that appears in the streets of a city a week before it falls. A mystic could even be the secret adviser to the king of a hidden nation. Mystics can truly be molded to fit any story or situation.

Sample NPC: Tural Remiel was once a young child. He lived with his grandmother in the largest house in the town where he grew up, and he didn't care for anything but his grandmother, his friends, and his toys. But then something changed one day, the sky bled. A lot of people left, they said it was an evil omen, but not Tural's grandmother, she said that that town was her home, that she wouldn't leave even if the world shook her house to the ground. So Tural and his grandmother stayed, none of Tural's friends were left behind, so Tural talked with his grandmother most of the time, she talked about odd things lately, preparations, dark things, sometimes she'd be quite and tell Tural that she loved him, other times she'd tell him stories of when she was younger. A year passed, and then Tural's grandmother told him to lock himself in the pantry on the ground floor, and to not leave it until everything was quite, no matter what he heard, not until it was quite. He wanted to ask why, but he knew better, not when she had that tone in her vioce. He locked himself in the pantry and sat down in the corner, he heard the world around him, the house creaking, the whispering of the wind, and he heard his grandmother climb up the steps to the second floor, straight up to the window that she always stared out of, directly above him. He heard her unfurl a scroll, and at the same time a distant sound, like thunder, but only angry, he heard his grandmother shout out to the world in some odd language, heard the thunder sweep forward into the town. The world outside went black, no light entered through the cracks in the walls, the house creaked as hellish winds crashed through the world around it, Tural still thought he could hear his grandmother shouting in that strange language, then there were sounds like cannon blasts and wood splintered, then something changed, his grandmothers voice wasn't a voice anymore, it was a roar, that drowned out all other sounds and made the world tremble around the edges. Then the light was back, and the sounds were gone. Tural sat there terrified for a few moments, afraid to move, but then a single drop of blood hit his forehead, and he looked up, blood was falling from the ceiling, just like when the sky had bled, Tural rushed out of the room and ran up to his grandmother, barely registering that half of the building was gone, blown backwards a few hundred feet, he just wanted his grandmother to be all right. She wasn't, her body was white, and there was a hole in her chest the size of a fist, blood was still pouring out of the wound, and her eyes starred blankly forward, but, strangely enough, she was smiling. Tural fell to his knees, tears running out of his eyes, eyes that wouldn't look away from what they saw. He knelt there a while, until his neighbor, Mr. Wisp, who had decided to stay with the town too, came up to the building, shouting out Tural and his grandmothers name, then he found Tural, kneeling there, weeping, and he picked him up. Tural didn't remember much after that, only bits and pieces of different years and journeys, but to this day, Tural hasn't spent a single day where he didn't stop and remember his grandmother, the way she died, the smile on her face after she died, and he has come to the conclusion that, whatever she was doing, she had succeeded, and this thought has helped calm his spirit.
