Class Skills 2 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
- Summon Familiar:
As of 1st level, a Frostfire Invoker may summon a familiar of her choice, as a sorcerer does.
Benefit: You gain +3 hit points at 1st level, then +1 hit point per extra level.
- Dual Touch (Fire, Ice):
At level 2, the character can create small orange (fire) or blueish flames (frost) in the palm of her hand, at will. These flames do not cause damage to other creatures, but can be used to start a campfire, light up a dark room, or simply to perform an eccentric flaming act to awe, or scare, party members.
- Spell Focus (Evocation) (General):
Benefit: Spells you cast from the chosen school either gain a +2 DC to their saving throws or +2 caster level. This bonus is chosen when you take this feat and cannot be changed afterwards.
- Arcane Power (Fire) (Metamagic):
At the cost of a spell slot of two levels higher, the Frostfire Invoker may add up to half the total of the original spell damage and add fire damage to it. This can be done at will. Ex: Ellysia casts a Magic Missile at 1d4 +1, and deals 4 damage. With Arcane Power (Fire), she deals an automatic 2 extra fire damage, for a total of 6 damage. Vulnerabilities and resistances to Elemental damage is applied normally.
- Elemental Fury (Burn):
With every fire based spells that deal damage, the Frostfire Invoker as a chance of "burning" her opponents. The opponent must succeed a Reflex Save (10 + caster level + CHA modifier) or take burning damage (1d6 per turn) until she puts it out. Manually putting out the fire takes a full "movement action" in case of armored or scaly opponents, or a full "standard action" for robed or furry creatures.
- Arcane Power (Frost) (Metamagic):
Adds the (Frost) ability to the "Arcane Power (Fire)" to deal extra damage.
- Elemental Fury (Freeze):
With every frost based spells that deals damage, the Frostfire Invoker now as a chance to "Slow" her opponents. A creature hit by her frosty spells must succeed a Fort Save (10 + caster level + CHA modifier) or be slowed.
An affected creature moves and attacks at a drastically slowed rate. A slowed creature can take only a single move action or standard action each turn, but not both (nor may it take full-round actions). Additionally, it takes a –1 penalty on attack rolls, AC, and Reflex saves. A slowed creature moves at half its normal speed (round down to the next 5-foot increment), which affects the creature’s jumping distance as normal for decreased speed.
- Dragon Master's Blessing:
At 14th level, a Frostfire Invoker's receives an ancestral blessing from her draconic master. She may choose of the following traits:
Glowing and smoking, white glassy eyes replace the Invoker's. These eyes allow you to determine a creature's alignment by gazing into their eyes.
Frosty blue and fiery orange scales appear in patches on the Invoker's skin. These scales give you +1 natural armor.
The Invoker's hands now feature sharp talons that serve has natural weapons and deal 1d6 slashing damage.
A sharp horn grows out of the Invoker's forehead. The horn serves as a natural weapon and deals 1d4 goring damage.
A long skeletal tail grows at the bottom of the Invoker's spine. The tail serves as a natural weapon and deals 1d4 slamming damage. The tail can also be used to help with balance checks as a stabilizer.
Long, leathery and skeletal frosty supernatural looking purple wings sprout out of the Invoker's back. These intimidating wings cannot be used to fly, but can be used to glide small distances or help break a fall.
Once per day, the Invoker can use a gazeous, conic breath attack. The attack does not deal any damage, but it has a change of slowing the target. The breath attack does a cone of 30ft of slowing gas (Fort DC 10 + CHA Bonus), and successful reflex saves negates the effect.
- Enpower Spell (Metamagic):
Benefit: All variable, numeric effects of an empowered spell are increased by one-half. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected, nor are spells without random variables. An empowered spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell’s actual level.
- Widen Spell (Metamagic):
Benefit: You can alter a burst, emanation, line, or spread shaped spell to increase its area. Any numeric measurements of the spell’s area increase by 100%. A widened spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell’s actual level. Spells that do not have an area of one of these four sorts are not affected by this feat
- Frostfire Soul Devouring:
Every fire based spell now also does frost damage equal to the original spell damage.
Fire spells and burning an opponent also have a chance of incinerating them. If the creature fails it's Reflex Save (DC 10 + caster level + CHA modifier) twice in a row, it is incinerated.
Frost spells also have a chance of freezing them solid. If the creature fails it's Fort Save (DC 10 + caster level + CHA modifier) four times in a row, it is frozen solid.
Incinerated and frozen solid creatures instantly die, and the Frostfire Invoker devours their souls.
Creatures without souls cannot be revived, resurrected or reincarnated.

Playing a Frostfire Invoker
Religion: None. Why worship them when you can harness their powers?

Combat: Middle-range caster.
