Planeswalker[edit]

"After four thousand years, you learn to plan for betrayal."
—Urza, Planeswalker to The Nine Titans of The Coalition


On a very rare occasion on a plane of existence a being is born with an inner spark of greatness, something that is so rare and special that no one in the multiverse understands what causes someone to have it. Even if someone has this spark it is not for sure that it will be awakened. This spark... is what separates Planeswalkers from mortal beings. Planeswalkers are mortals who through the awakening of their spark have been overwhelmed with the energies of the multiverse and understand the way to breach the paths onto other planes along with incredible magic that is only limited by mere thought.

Becoming a Planeswalker[edit]

Characters may only become a Planeswalker if they are one of the rare beings born with the Spark. If they do truly anyone with a basic understanding of the Multiverse may become a Planeswalker.

A Planeswalkers equivalent spellcaster level for all her abilities are four times her current Planeswalker level to a maximum of 20. ________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________________



Planar Intuition (Ex): As the Planeswalker travels through the multiverse her understanding of it increases. The Planeswalker gets a +1 to all Knowledge (The Planes) checks for every level of Planeswalker she obtains.

Planeshift (Su): Upon gaining awareness of the multiverse and activating her spark, the Planeswalker gains the ability to use some of the cosmic energy in her to shift between the planes of existence. The Planeswalker may use 2 planeswalker points as a full round action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity to planeswalk to another plane of existence as the Planeshift spell.

Body of Thought (Ex): As the spark of a Planeswalker activates and the being becomes a Planeswalker her body is no longer torn by the ravages of reality or time. The Planeswalker may use the Alter Self as the spell at will as a swift action. A Planeswalker also no longer takes penalties to her ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that she has already taken, however, remain in place. Bonuses still accrue.

Fly Speed (Su): Upon attaining 2nd level the Planeswalker gains a fly speed of 100ft. with good maneuverability.

Telepathy (Su): At 3rd level a Planeswalker can communicate telepathically with any other creature within 100 feet that has a language. It is possible to address multiple creatures at once telepathically, although maintaining a telepathic conversation with more than one creature at a time is just as difficult as simultaneously speaking and listening to multiple people at the same time.

Immortal Regeneration (Ex): Upon gaining 4th level if a Planeswalker ever falls below -10 hit points she does not die but instead is unconscious as her body reforms itself at half her maximum hit points. Reforming a Planeswalkers body requires 1 week the first time it happens and 1 day every time she dies after. If a Planeswalker dies and its brain is being scrambled for more then 1d6 minutes the Planeswalker cannot think fast enough to reform her body and does die as normal, though nothing can bring her back, not even a True Resurrection spell or a Wish spell.

Above Humanity (Ex): As a Planeswalker reaches 5th level she has obtained real undeniable power and no longer has any traces to her species of origin. The Planeswalker becomes a magical creature. She is forevermore treated as an outsider rather than as her previous type for the purpose of spells and magical effects. Additionally, the Planeswalker gains damage reduction 10/magic, which allows her to ignore the first 10 points of damage from any attack made by a nonmagical weapon or by any natural attack made by a creature that doesn’t have similar damage reduction. Additionally as the Planeswalker transcends her mortal race she starts to look down on them. From now on the Planeswalker gains a -4 to diplomacy checks when dealing with a mortal race as she no longer relates with them.

Campaign Information[edit]

Playing a Planeswalker[edit]

Combat: A Planeswalker has varying roles in combat depending on what she was before she became a Planeswalker and what color Planeswalker she is. She could be a Green Planeswalker melee combatant or a White Planeswalker healer. The ranges are very wide.

Planeswalkers in the World[edit]

If there can be no victory, then I will fight forever. -Koth of The Hammer, Red Planeswalker

Planeswalker never tend to fit into any world they go to. Too powerful for mortal societies to accept them and too weak for deities to accept them into their ranks. Planeswalkers face a lonely life of wandering across the multiverse expanding on their knowledge or searching for their own personal needs.

NPC Reactions: NPC's see Planeswalkers with fear and awe knowing the undeniable power they hold and the destructive and fantastic magic they can summon with a single thought. Most Planeswalkers try to blend into society using their Body of Thought ability only showing their true nature when need be.
