Class Traits
Role: Controller. Mediums channel the power of either dead or demonic entities, enabling the aforementioned entitites to enter their mortal body and act through them. In combat Mediums invite dark forces to grant them great power, but this comes at a high cost. Mediums must constantly struggle for control of their own body while possessed or else the very creatures they channel will shatter or banish their minds and retain full control of the Medium's body. You lean towards leader or defender as a secondary role.
Power Source: Arcane. Mediums are experts on ancient texts, glyphs, transcriptions, lore, etc related to demonology and necromancy in an effort to better equip themselves to maintain control over their own facilities when possessed. Alternatively, some Mediums rely on pure strength of their arcane power to perform self-exorcisms when necessary.

Medium Class Features[edit]

All Mediums share these class features.

Rising Corruption: Whenever you take damage or deal damage while not possessed you generate 1 corruption charge counter. The maximum amount of corruption charge counters you may have at a single time is 6. When you reach 6 corruption charge counters you must immediately activate your Possession daily power if it has not been used yet.

Otherworldly Possession Instead of choosing a level 1 daily power you gain access to the Possession At-Will power. You also gain access to the Suppression Medium daily power which you can use twice per day, but only once per encounter. The number of times you can use the Suppression Medium daily power increases to 3 at level 6, and 4 at level 9.

Source: When you first create your Medium you must choose a source from which you draw the power to use your Medium abilities. Typically Mediums either choose to channel the lost souls of the Dead or the might of demons directly into their bodies before binding them. Herald of the Damned While possessed you gain the following benefits from the immortal soul possessing you: you are insubstantial, you gain the Undead keyword, all of your Medium powers now have the Cold keyword, whenever you hit a creature with a Medium power with the Cold keyword that creature is slowed until save ends, your Medium At-Will powers now gain their Possessed bonus effect(s), you cannot be considered an ally by any creature that does not have the Undead keyword. Vessel of Damnation While possessed you gain the following benefits from the Demon possessing you: you have the devil keyword, you gain resist 5 to all damage, all of your Medium powers now have the Fire keyword, whenever you hit a creature with a Medium power with the Fire keyword that creature takes ongoing 5 Fire damage until save ends, your Medium At-Will powers now gain their Possessed bonus effect(s), you cannot be considered an ally by any creature that does not have the Devil keyword.
