Gaean

Although most view the earth and nature as teeming with life, they see it as a primitive and mostly mindless collection of creatures. Gaeans have learned that all of nature is connected by a vast earthmind, sometimes referred to as Gaea, and, although that mind is of a more primitive character and subconscious entity, it still connects all living things into one singular existence. The gaeans tap into this primal mind, dormant yet always there, to fuel their energies.

Gaean Communion (Su)

While maintaining psionic focus, the gaean is in communion with the dormant earthmind and gains the ability to telepathically communicate with any animal or magical beast with an intelligence of 1 or 2 within 100 ft. Any time the gaean casts summon nature’s ally, she can communicate telepathically with all of the creatures summoned by the spell.

This ability replaces wild empathy.

Wild Talent

The gaean gains the Wild Talent feat as a bonus feat at 1st.

Strength of Gaea (Su)

At 4th level, while the gaean is in physical contact with nature, such as being barefoot on the ground or touching a tree, once per day the gaean can draw strength from the earthmind, allowing her to augment her spells in one of the following ways.

Augment: You can augment your spells in one of the following ways.

This ability replaces resist nature’s lure.

Gaean Revivification (Su)

At 13th level, if the gaean is maintaining psionic focus when reduced to 0 or fewer hit points and is in physical contact with nature, she can choose as a free action to submerge into whatever part of nature she is in contact with, typically the ground. While submerged, the gaean cannot be targeted by attacks or effects (even if the attacker has a burrow speed or similar ability), she immediately stops bleeding and gains fast healing 5. She is ejected from the earthmind’s embrace once she returns to positive hit points, although she can choose to stay submerged as a free action by expending spell slots. Each level of the spell slot expended extends the effect by 1 round. While submerged the gaean can take no actions other than expending spell slots to remain submerged.

This ability replaces a thousand faces.
