Faceted Conjurer

“What secret powers are locked within the infinite depths of rare gems and precious metals? Look and you shall behold mysterious forces.”

Faceted conjurers are rare and enigmatic conjurors who dabble in enchantment or illusion, and specialize in magic related to gems and exotic minerals. Through intense study and innate talent, they have discovered old magic secrets inherent in the complex geometry of rare earths, and the effects of dazzling beauty and colors on the mind. Their closely guarded knowledge lets them wield magic with greater potency, and allows them to conjure eldritch stones and figurines of power.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the faceted conjurer prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency

Faceted conjurers gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

Faceted Magic I

At 1st level, the faceted conjurer’s caster level is considered one level higher whenever he casts one of the following spells: break enchantment, charm person, charm monster, color spray, displacement, dominate person, eagle’s splendor, fabricate, false vision, glitterdust, greater invisibility, invisibility, invisibility sphere, lesser geas, magic jar, major creation, minor image, mirror image, permanency, persistent image, rainbow pattern, scrying, shadow conjuration, secret chest, shatter, shield, suggestion.

Bonus Spell

At 2nd level, the faceted conjurer learns one bonus spell of any level he can cast, taken from the wizard/sorcerer spell list.

Conjure Ioun Stone I (Sp)

At 2nd level, the faceted conjurer gains the ability to conjure an ioun stone up to three times per day. More than one stone can be conjured at a time, but they may not be of the same type. The stones orbit the faceted conjurer’s head for one hour per two faceted conjurer levels, after which they vanish. Conjured ioun stones are completely useless to anyone other than the faceted conjurer. When conjuring ioun stones, the character must choose them from the following list:

clear (Sustains creature without food or water), dusty rose (+1 insight bonus to AC), deep red (+2 enhancement bonus to Dexterity), incandescent blue (+2 enhancement bonus to Wisdom), pale blue (+2 enhancement bonus to Strength), pink (+2 enhancement bonus to Constitution), pink and green (+2 enhancement bonus to Charisma), scarlet and blue (+2 enhancement bonus to Intelligence), dark blue (Alertness (as the feat)), and vibrant purple (stores three levels of spells, as a ring of spell storing). As the faceted conjurer gains levels in the prestige class, he gains the ability to conjure more and different types of stones in addition to those listed above.

Conjure Figurine I (Sp)

At 3rd level, the faceted conjurer learns to conjure one of the following figurines of wondrous power: bronze griffon, ebony fly, golden lions, goat of traveling, serpentine owl, or silver raven. Once he has made his choice, it cannot be changed.

He may conjure the figurine once per day. Only the faceted conjurer may use the figurine – it is useless to any other person.

The faceted conjurer automatically knows the command words required to use the figurine, and it remains in his possession for one hour per two faceted conjurer levels (3 hours maximum), after which it vanishes. While it is in his possession, he may activate it once per day. If a figurine is destroyed or its animal form is slain, he may not conjure that type of figurine again for one week.

Permanent Conjuration I

At 4th level, the faceted conjurer learns arcane secrets which, combined with his extensive knowledge of gem magic, conjuration, and wondrous item creation allow him to permanently conjure one of the following magic items of his choice, at a cost of only one-quarter the item’s listed creation price: cube of frost resistance, elemental gem, gem of brightness, pearl of power (6th level spells maximum), pearl of the sirines, periapt of 43 health, periapt of proof against poison, periapt of wound closure, or stone of good luck. The faceted conjurer may conjure one of these items only once in his lifetime, and once he makes his choice, it cannot be undone.

Conjure Figurine II (Sp)

At 5th level, the faceted conjurer learns how to conjure another type of figurine. In addition, the following figurines are added to the list of choices: goat of travail, goat of terror, or onyx dog.

Permanent Conjuration II

At 6th level, the faceted conjurer may conjure another magic item at a cost of only one-quarter the item’s listed creation price, as described under Permanent Conjuration I. The faceted conjurer may conjure one of these items only once in his lifetime, and once he makes his choice, it cannot be undone.

Conjure Ioun Stone II (Sp)

At 7th level, the faceted conjurer can now conjure new and different types of ioun stones. He may conjure one of the following ioun stones once per day: iridescent (sustains creature without air), pale lavender (absorbs spells of 4th level or lower), pearly white (regenerate 1 point of damage per 10 minutes), pale green (+1 competence bonus on attack rolls, saves, skill checks, and ability checks). These stones stay for one hour per faceted conjurer level, except the pale lavender stone, which stays for only one minute per faceted conjurer level.

Conjure Figurine Iii (Sp)

At 8th level, the faceted conjurer learns how to conjure another type of figurine. In addition, the marble elephant and obsidian steed are added to the list. However, the obsidian steed’s plane shift and ethereal jaunt abilities may only be used twice per day instead of at will, at caster level 14.

Faceted Magic II

At 9th level, the faceted conjurer’s caster level is considered two levels higher whenever he casts one of the following spells: analyze dweomer, binding, contingency, dominate monster, greater dispel magic, legend lore, greater scrying, greater shadow conjuration, greater teleport, instant summons, mass invisibility, mislead, permanent image, prismatic sphere, prismatic spray, prismatic wall, programmed image, project image, refuge, scintillating pattern, soul bind, teleport object, trap the soul, true seeing, vision.

Prismatic Mastery (Sp)

At 9th level, the faceted conjurer unlocks the secret of channeling his magic through faceted surfaces to create prismatic effects. Once per week, he may use any gem or crystal worth at least 5,000 gp as a focus which allows him to use one of the following spell-like-abilities: prismatic sphere, prismatic spray, or prismatic wall.

Conjure Ioun Stone Iii (Sp)

At 10th level, the faceted conjurer can now conjure new and different types of ioun stones. He may conjure one of the following stones, once per day: orange (+1 caster level), lavender and green (absorb spells of 8th level or lower). The orange stone stays for one hour per faceted conjurer level, while the lavender and green one stays for one minute per faceted conjurer level.

Permanent Conjuration Iii

At 10th level, the faceted conjurer may permanently conjure another magic item, as described under Permanent Conjuration I and II. The faceted conjurer may conjure one of these items only once in his lifetime, and once he makes his choice, it cannot be undone.

Spellcasting

At every even faceted conjurer level, the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in the spellcasting class he belonged to before adding the prestige class. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, except for an increased effective level of spellcasting. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a faceted conjurer, he must decide to which class he adds the new level for purposes of determining spells per day.
