All of the following are class features of the DOT Master.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Proficient with Simple Weapons and Light Armor.
Gnawing Pain: You select a target and cause a gnawing pain that deals 1d4 + Wis Mod damage. You can channel this ability every turn but can only take a move action if you are channeling it. It starts out on one target but at level 4 and every 4 levels after you gain another target and the damage increases by an additional 1d4. Fort Save for half damage DC = 10 + 1/2 ECL + Wis Mod.
Low Light Vision: You gain Low Light Vision out to 60 ft.
Wise Movement: At Lvl 5 you have trained your mind to watch for threats around you. As long as you are unencumbered and wearing no armor or light armor you add your Wis Mod to your AC and Ref Save.
Dark Vision: You gain Dark Vision out to 60 ft.
Mass Pain: You can use your Gnawing Pain on all enemies within 30 ft of you. For every turn you channel it you lose 15% of your max health rounded up. You can increase the distance by 10 ft for every additional 1% of your health you lose every turn. Minimum 2 turns channeling.
Blind Sense: You gain Blind Sense out to 30 ft.
Improved Mass Pain: You have learned how to control the pain you give to others well enough that you take less damage every turn from using Mass Pain, down to 12%. And the distance you can reach increases by 15 ft up to 45 ft before you need to sacrifice more life to increase the range.
Greater Mass Pain: You have gained even more control over your powers and take less damage from using Mass Pain, down to 9%. And the distance increases by another 15 ft up to 60 ft.
True Gnawing Pain: You can now target enemies equal to 1/4 ECL + Wis Mod. Damage from your Gnawing pain increases from d4's to d6's.
There is no way to become an ex-DOT Master.
