Sorcerer of Sleep

Some sorcerers have trouble accessing their innate gifts and must find another way to unlock them. For a sorcerer of sleep, the mind-altering drug keif is the key. The garbled visions the drug provides allow a sorcerer of sleep to reach an ideal state for channeling her arcane power.

The arcane and dreamspun bloodlines are the sorcerer heritages most often associated with keif, though a sorcerer of sleep might exhibit any bloodline; keif is a tool to enhance her gifts, rather than their source.

Keif Expert

A sorcerer of sleep adds 1/2 her sorcerer level (minimum 1) on Appraise, Craft (alchemy), Heal, and Knowledge (local) checks related to keif and other drugs.

This ability replaces bloodline arcana.


A sorcerer of sleep gains Sahir-Afiyun as a bonus feat at 1st level, even if she does not meet the prerequisites. A sorcerer of sleep adds Keif Euphoria, Keif Healing, Keif Rejuvenation, and Sahir-Afiyun to her list of bloodline feats.

This ability replaces eschew materials.

Keif Touch (Su)

As a standard action, a sorcerer of sleep can make a melee touch attack against a living creature to cause one of the following effects (sorcerer’s choice): the target gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength, the target is fatigued, or the target takes a –2 penalty on saving throws against illusion and mind-affecting effects. The effects of keif touch last a number of rounds equal to 1/2 the sorcerer of sleep’s sorcerer level. The effects of keif touch are not cumulative, and cannot make the target exhausted. A sorcerer of sleep can use keif touch a number of times per day equal to 3 + her Charisma modifier.

This ability replaces the 1st-level bloodline power.
