Amalgam (Ranged) (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
|—<-Vangath->, <-human-> <-Amalgam->|
Demoniacs: or Amalgams are humans that are re-animated from the dead into monstrous forms that are both agile and strong, an ability that is unique to them is that they can fuse with any type of machinery or metal to their bodies according to their will. However humans that are alive can also become demoniacs. In order for a human to become a demoniac, they have to come in contact with demoniac blood or via contact with any part of the Amalgam's body this in turn exposes them to the untraceable nano machines in the Demoniac's blood. The nano machines then begin to transform the protein cells found in the body at an accelerated pace causing a fast paced evolution. Re-animated corpses in amalgam form look mostly alike while amalgam-turned humans all have different forms.
Becoming a Amalgam (Speed)
Some people choose to pursue this class to become one with their weapons but some are forced into it due to coming into contact with an Amalgam. Useful abilities for Ranged Amalgams are Dex for attacks and AC, Con for survivability, and Wis to improve their will saves to overcome their crazy mind and stay sane.
|Special:||must have been brought down to 50% hp by another amalgam that was using a weapon that could infect someone with the nano-machines, alive or mindless minion, or come into extended contact with another amalgams blood.|

Demoniac Form Ex – the amalgam can take on a form made of special metal that covers their entire body. Each amalgam has a different looking demoniac form that each gives a unique power depending on which amalgam type they are. The 3 different amalgams are power, speed, and ranged. They can enter this form for a number of times per day equal to their Wis mod and may maintain this form for a number of minutes equal to their amalgam lvl + Wisdom Mod. In this form the amalgam gains natural armor +4
Point Blank Shot gains as bonus feat.
Symbol the amalgam has a symbol on the front of one of their two hands (roll a d2 to determine). The symbol for each amalgam looks different and symbolizes that they are amalgams. This gives a -10 to disguise against anyone that knows that the symbol represents that their amalgam.
Weapon of Choice the amalgam chooses one martial or exotic weapon. This weapon can be summoned from the amalgams symbol at any time even while not being in demoniac form. The amalgams weapon of choice is infectious and can spread the Nano machines into the bloodstream of another person or creature if they deal enough damage (50% health) or turning them into a mindless amalgam minion if they kill them. They can have a number of creatures under his control as minions whose total HD do not exceed his own. must be ranged weapon. shoots energy instead of ammo.
Fire Immunity the nano machines that live within their bloodstream have made him evolve making him immune to even the harshest of flames. This is constantly in effect.
Merge Metal/Machinery the amalgam has learned to, in their demoniac form, to merge themselves with other metal objects or machinery at will. If the enemy has the metal on their body they must succeed will save 10 + ½ amalgam lvl + Wis. Mod. If the amalgam merges with machinery that is bigger than them than the top half of them will appear somewhere on the machinery showing that they are in control. If the amalgam merges with some kind of metal weapon than its infectious just like their weapon of choice.

Nano Bonding the nano machines have fused with the character enough that the demoniac form is almost natural for the amalgam. can now activate demoniac form number of times per day equal to double wisdom mod and can maintain it for number of minutes equal to double amalgam level + double wisdom mod.
