Wylder

Untrained in the delicate and precise nature of magic, some wylders have learned through trial and error how to live with their special gifts, while others perished due to the dangerous effects of their gift. Raised in a world that fears magic, wylders strive to keep their abilities a secret and try to live a normal life. Instead of isolating themselves in the intense study of magic like the luminari, they go about their lives, becoming proficient with more weapons and armor, honing their skills, and leading more active lives, granting them more toughness than their learned counterparts.

*Level dependent, not class dependent. These skills are completely independent of Class Feature.

Level 1

Elemental Type: A Wylder can use any type of energy which they can infuse into elemental Spells. They choose from: Fire, Water, Earth, Air, Ice, Electricity. The Wylder gains one elemental type at level 1, and another at level 3. They can only have 2 Max elemental foci. These can not be changed.

Elemental Focus: Elemental focus is a magical Ability that targets an object to become a bonded focus between the spellcaster and the element. It takes a free action to cast and the target must be an object touched. Element focus counts as a spell for detection, dispels, and other abilities; but does not count against a bard or wylder’s spell memory.

The spellcaster pulls energy from themselves to create a focus for elemental magic. While natural elements may be available, elemental focuses allow for a spellcaster to bond with the element and allow for it to be shaped into Spells. Effects to the body due to creating the foci have no detriment to the spellcasters, instead just describing how it feels to create them. A spellcaster can only have 1 focus active per 2 spellcaster levels. 

Fire

Focus: a burnable item or a piece of metal

The spellcasters body cools as they transfer heat into the focus item, their body dropping a few degrees for 10 minutes. Flammable items burst into flame while metal becomes hot for the duration of the spell. Flammable objects burn the standard amount of time and metal stays hot for 1 hour per spellcaster level.

Water

Focus: A jar or small container

The spellcaster fills a vessel with spit, sweat, or blood to create a focus causing them to feel dehydrated for 10 minutes. The water focus lasts for 1 hour per caster level.

Water (Ice)

Focus A metal bar

The spellcaster’s body warms as they transfer heat from the focus item, their body rising a few degrees for 10 minutes. The ice focus lasts 1 hour per level.

Air

Focus: A jar or container

The spellcaster exhales air into a vessel as a focus. This causes them to be short of breath for 10 minutes. The air focus lasts for 1 hour per caster level.

Electricity

Focus: A copper wire bound upon itself creating a twisted loop

The spellcaster imbues the wire with electricity from their body causing their heart to skip beats for the next 10 minutes. The electrical focus lasts 1 hour per caster level.

Earth 

Focus: A jar or container filled with soil, or a rock, stone, or gem.

The spellcaster imbues the earth with part of themselves, which may be saliva, breath, blood, or spirit. The spellcaster feels numb for 10 minutes after imbuing the focus.The earth focus lasts 1 hour per spellcaster level.

Spell Memory: Unable to record Spells in a spellbook, wylders are limited to a number of Spells they can know at a given time. This is based on class, level, and Ability modifier. A Wylder can commit a number of Spells to memory equal to their Spell Memory Allotment for a given spell level plus their primary Ability modifier modifier.

Alternatively a Wylder may charge their weapon with this Ability as a free action. With a successful hit, this adds the wild magic damage to the melee weapon’s damage.

Level 2

Level 4

Level 6

Chaos Wave: A wave of chaotic energy bursts from the Wylder in all directions, doing 4d6+3 damage to all in a 10’ radius. A Wylder can do this 2 times per day.

Level 8

Focused Wild magic: At level 8, a Wylder has learned to control the wild magics that flow through them. Their wild magic Ability allows them to cast a burst of wild force doing 4d4+4 points of damage. Now that they can focus this energy, they can change the energy type to any elemental focus they have. Range 120’.

Alternatively a Wylder may charge their weapon with this Ability as a free action. With a successful hit, this adds the wild magic damage to the melee weapon’s damage.
