Fire Disciple (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
Fire is perfect, so wild and uncontrollable. That is the word of a Fire Disciple. They are one with fire, and fire is one with them. They are found from the volcanoes of the north to the dry, hot deserts of the south. A Fire Disciple can be found liveing in harmony with fire.
Making a Fire Disciple
A fire disciple can be very good at dealing damage with his psychic attacks, though his melee attacks might not be as strong, a Fire Disciple is good for attacks from the back of the group to back up the melee fighters. Fire Disciples can come off quite odd at first look because they always talk about fire and all its greatness.
Abilities: Charisma is important for the Fire Disciple because it gives him more power points to use. Constitution would be important because it gives the Fire Disciple extra health, because usually it has a low armor class. Dexterity is also important because it lends the Fire Disciple a higher armor class.
Races: Can be a character from any race who has a passion for fire.
Alignment: Any chaotic.

|1 — A Fire Disciple gains no power points from his class at 1st level. However, he does add any bonus power points he gains from a high Charisma score, his race, and feats or other sources to his reserve. He can use these power points (if any) to manifest his power.|
Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Fire Disciple.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Fire Disciple is proficient with light armor and the Dagger, Mace (light, heavy), Morningstar, Quarterstaff, Sling, Handaxe, Battleaxe, Shortsword, Longsword, Rapier, Halberd, Ranseur, Longbow, Shortbow, Whip.
Power Points/Day: A Fire Disciple’s ability to manifest powers is limited by the power points he has available. His base daily allotment of power points is given on Table: <-class name->. In addition, he receives bonus power points per day if he has a high Charisma score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Power Points). His race may also provide bonus power points per day, as may certain feats and items.
Powers Known: A fire Disciple canmanifest psionic powers: save DCs are chrisma based, andyou need to have a high charisma score to manifest powers. Fire Disciples choose their powers from the following list:
|2 — Unlike other classes, a Fire Disciple can only use fire energy in all of the indicated powers with the little 2 by them.|
Maximum Power Level Known: This column determines the highest level power he can learn at this level.
To learn or manifest a power, a Fire Disciple must have an Charisma score of at least 10 + the power’s level.
Fiery Discipline (Ex): A Fire Disciple is so used to spending time around fire and heat that starting at first level, and increasing every two levels after (3, 5, 7, 9, 11, 13, 15, 17, 19) the Fire Disciple gains a bonus to saving throws against heat and fire.
Fiery Blast (Ps): Starting at 2nd level a Fire Disciple can create a psionic blast of fire dealing 2d8 fire damage, 4d8 fire damage at 6th level, 6d8 fire damage at 10th level, 8d8 fire damage at 14th level, and 10d8 fire damage at 18th level. This ability increases once more at 30th level to 12d8. Making a succsessful reflex save halves the damage. The reflex is equal to 10+1/2 Fire Disciple level+Dexterity modifier.
Fiery Resistance (Su): Starting at 4th level, because the Fire Disciple is so intune with fire that he gains restistance to fire equal to 10, then 30 at 8th level, 50 at 12th level, and 70 at 16th level.
Master of the Flame (Ps): 5/day-At 20th level a Fire Disciple has gained such controll over fire that he can controll flames and creatures with the fire subtype for 3+Chrisma Modifier rounds. If he wishes to controll a creature with the fire subtype, then the creature he is attempting to controll must make a will save of 10 + 1/2 Fire Disciple Level + Charisma Modifier. If the Creature successfully makes the will save it can not be affected by that same Fire Disciple's Master of the Flame ability for 24 hours. Here is an example of what he could controll, he can cause a flame to to move from on torch to another, or controll a fire elemental to make it attack his enemies.
If a character becomes non-chaotic in alignment, or he discontinues to respect fire he no longer can take levels in the Fire Disciple class and looses all abilities except weapon and armor proficeincy until he atones.
