Syphon[edit]

Syphons are gifted in taking and giving life. Every time they deal damage through spells they heal themselves or an ally.

Making a Syphon[edit]

Abilities: For a syphon intellect is the most important for the use of spells and abilities. Constitution is also useful as it can syphon its own life to allies.

Races: Humans are common syphons, so are gnomes. Elves are rarely syphons as they view such power as dark magic.

Alignment: Syphons can be any alignment, though are rarely good.

Starting Gold: 2d10 * 10 gp (100 gp)

"Complex" or "As wizard"

Hand of Leech or Lambs to the slaughter (Ex) At first level a Syphon must choose whether to gain a start in Sacrificial Lamb or Syphoning. This allows sacrificial lamb to be used additional time per day plus at first level or syphon to have an increase in die number, in addition to beginning at level 1. The chosen ability increases according to the table above. Learn what each of the abilities do below.

Syphon (Sp) Every time a Syphon does damage with a spell it can transfer health to itself or another ally.

Sacrificial Lamb (Sp) A certain amount of times per day (as shown by the chart above) the Syphon may sacrifice 10% of its current HP to heal an ally for 10% of their total HP.
