Scroll Summoner[edit]

A scroll summoner is usually either minor support, or a full invasion force (at higher levels). They use scrolls created from their soul to seal and unseal objects, and creatures of their own creations. The most common scroll summoner will use a mechanical minion because they don't require the character's life force to be useful. However, there are many variations, and these variations can either see one another as weaklings, heroes, villains, or those worthy of being considered near godlike in power. There are several colors of scroll, each of them represents what they summon (i.e. black, usually being zombies, vampires, or demons)

Becoming a Scroll Summoner[edit]

The scroll summoners, while useful with healing, stealth, crafting, and gaining knowledge on the enemies, lack combat ability, and quite commonly do not know how to defend against a direct attack, which is why they manipulate their minions from a location, usually just out of reach of the combatants. Another drawback is that they can only summon a certain number of minions (and control them, bringing them out of the scroll is different from actually placing your life in them) without collapsing, and even dying.

Abilities: Constitution and Charisma are a scroll summoner's best attributes, because they need to put their own life into their minions to bring them to life, and then have to exert control over them, unless the minions have the loyalty trait, in which case they are not commanded by the summoner, but agree to fight for them.

Races: The races suitable for this profession, usually have some advanced knowledge of their soul, so any race can become a scroll summoner, however, not everybody is suitable for this profession. Those who can not peer into their soul, is not worthy of advancing past the grey scroll (used for storage), and as a result, gnomes and dwarves are slightly less common than elves, humans, and half-elves.

Class Features[edit]

All life imbue spells are based entirely upon those in scroll six (the weakest scroll), so when using higher level scrolls, these numbers shouldn't be applied, as they have their own willpower starting at four, also, summoning one creature from scroll one, is comparable to summoning ten from scroll 4, which is like 5 from scroll. A section will be included when I've finished the page to show spells and how they affect minions from different scrolls. All of the following are class features of the Scroll Summoner.

At level 15, all life imbue spells apply to all scroll.

At level 17, can open a special scroll, scroll zero, which contains the essence of whichever alignment you have chosen, incarnated as a type of creature you summon.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: None


Powers Known: The Scroll Summoner, develops the ability to cast bits of their own soul, out into their constructs and creatures, brought forward by the scrolls. The more they use, the less constitution they will have, and if the constitution is spread too thin, they will pass out, or die. Saving throws are usually Fortitude, or Willpower saves, as they are the main attributes that have anything to do with this art. Scroll Summoners choose their powers from the following list:

0—Imbue Life; *1,*2,*3

1st—Imbue Life; *4,*5,*6

2nd—Imbue Life; *7,*8,*9, Drain Life

3rd—Multiply Life Force (Temporary); *2

4th—Imbue Life; *10,*11

5th—Flames of (Insert symbol of selected summoning here, example, Zombies; Plague)

6th—Imbue Life *12,*13,*14

7th—Oppress Will (Will save of 10+Wisdom Modifiers)

8th—Absorb Life from surroundings.
