Master of Creation: (Ex) At ninth level, the Master Artificer gains access to a small demi-plane 500 feet in radius, which increases in radius by 50' for every additional Master Artificer level you take. The planar traits of this plane match your home plane. This plane begins as a flat empty field of dirt with breathable air (which magically replaces itself when used), but you can declare certain features to exist: Water and wind: The plane contains bodies of water (the exact placement is up to you) along with a proper water cycle and weather. Pure Water (Requires Water and Wind): The plane's atmosphere is replaced with water. Green Waves (Requires Water and Wind): Grass is planted in the layer of dirt. Stone and fire: The plane has thick stone below the surface of the dirt, and there are bodies of lava in the stone (the exact placement is up to you). Hellfire (Requires Stone and Fire): The dirt layer is removed and the lava/stone comes to the top. Sun and stars: The plane has a day/night cycle (the length of which is up to you). You select these features upon attaining the demi-plane, and you can change them via a 1 week ritual (which costs nothing but time). Changing any feature results in resetting the plane, which destroys anything built up on it (Creatures on the plane are unharmed). This plane is lying coterminous to one spot in the Astral Plane, but only those allowed in by you can enter. You gain a spell like ability Plane Shift which can only take you to your Demi-plane or your home plane.

Bonus Feat(specific): At tenth level, the Master Artificer has attracted the attention of the people around him. You gain a bonus 'Leadership' feat. (leadership, improved leadership, improved cohort, etc).
