Aether-Touched Druid

Aether-touched druids gain influence over constructs and creatures with the aether subtype at the cost of their connection to animals.

Aetheric Empathy (Ex)

An aether-touched druid can communicate with creatures possessing the aether subtype even if they do not have a language or an Intelligence score. This ability functions as wild empathy. While this ability works on creatures with an Intelligence higher than 3, the aether-touched druid takes a –4 penalty on aetheric empathy checks with such creatures. This ability modifies wild empathy.

Aether Magic

An aether-touched druid adds the following telekinetic spells to her druid spell list at the following spell levels: mage hand (0), telekinetic projectile (0), feather fall (1st), pilfering hand (2nd), levitate (3rd), fly (4th), force punch (4th), telekinetic maneuver (4th), telekinetic charge (5th), overland flight (6th), telekinesis (6th), enemy hammer (7th), mass fly (8th), reverse gravity (9th), telekinetic sphere (9th).

This ability replaces nature sense.

Aether-Warped Summons (Su)

At 4th level, an aether-touched druid can summon aether-warped creatures with summon nature’s ally spells. When she casts summon nature’s ally, she can treat the spell as one level lower for the purposes of which table she can choose the creatures from. If she does, all creatures summoned appear with the aether-warped template (see Alien Bestiary Companion). This ability replaces wild shape.

Aetherite Resistance (Ex)

At 4th level, an aether-touched druid gains a +4 bonus on saving throws against aetherite radiation and against force effects and telekinetic effects. This ability replaces resist nature’s lure.

Aether-Warped Shape (Su)

At 6th level, an aether-touched druid can take the shape of an aether-warped creature. This ability functions like wild shape, but the druid can take the form of a Small or Medium animal at 6th level, a Tiny or Large animal or Small or Medium plant at 10th level, a Diminutive or Huge animal or Tiny or Large plant at 14th level, and a Diminutive or Huge plant at 18th level. She does not gain the ability to become an elemental. She gains the aether subtype while transformed into animal or plant shapes.

Aether Influence (Sp)

Once per day, an 8th-level aether-touched druid can charm creatures with the aether subtype, as if they were plant creatures targeted with command plants. At 12th level and every four levels thereafter, the aether-touched druid can use this ability one additional time per day. The save DC is 10 + 1/2 the druid’s level + her Wisdom modifier.
