A random village meeting
“Silence!” A very loud sound echo's through the large meeting room. The chairman hit his hammer on the table with so much force that it could be considered a miracle that the table was not damaged. Immediately everybody was silent, all were shocked by this action of the chairman. “Silence!... I will not tolerate this outrages disrespect against the council” Said the chairman with a very loud but clear voice. After a short moment the chairman looks around with eyes that seem to tell everybody who saw it, Yes... I mean you! “Now shall we continue”.
The meeting room is a large room highly decorated, a stone floor, granite? It does not matter, even the large paintings were mostly overseen. With all the decorations in it, it should be called a museum. It was still to small for all the people, some stayed outside; the guards were worried and were on full alert.
The chairman's mind was for a moment elsewhere, “This has gone on enough” he thinks, “We most come to a acceptable decision. Somehow he managed to resist the urge to yawn and looks around, there are sure a lot of people this time. It seems that there are two groups, they who are for this plan, mainly the more established people and those that are against it, mainly farmers. He clears his throat. “We have heard the objection of farmer Roderick because the new road will go through the land that is his. This is noted. Now I will give the word to Sen Gardner, who shall explain the benefits of this new road”. “Thank you chairman, His Magnificence Maribelee, The Honorable Olberiandor, ladies and gentleman. I see this road as a great step forward in the grow of this city, this will provide work and that alone can make this city truly prosper. The towns and village, who also be connected to this road, have need of many materials witch we can produce. At the same time they have goods we almost desperately needs. I have the details on paper, but to make it short it looks like a profitable situation for everyone. I urge everybody also to not only think on the now, but also about the future. This...” ”Thank you”, Sen Gardner was interrupted by the chairman who remains calm and takes his place. ”..Thank you. I have a copy of that list and it is a long list indeed with the approval of the council I will read this”. He looks to the council and the public, who were not all to happy to listen to this long list. But none makes an objection so the chairman. He starts reading the list and it takes about a half hour. “ I will give now the word to farmer Borjan” The farmer Borjan stands up and somewhat nervous he grabs his posture together. ”Thank you.. Chairman, lady’s and gentleman. Most people know me from when I was a little boy, my father was a farmer and his father....” “ Could you get to the point!” said the chairman as he looks irritated but that's how he always look like so it's hard to tell. The public is not amused with this interruption. “Yes, what I want to say is that a road may be a fine idea, but we don't have the money to make one. Taxes are already too high, were is all that money coming from? The land of my family is also in the way of this new road, don’t we have enough with two roads? Thank you.” “Thank you farmer Borjan. Now I see that Sen Gardner want to say something, very well you may speak”. “Thank you chairman. His Magnificence Maribelee, The Honorable Olberiandor, ladies and gentleman”. She then looks directly to farmer Borjan. “I appreciate you honesty and I can understand that it is difficult to see how the cost of the road will be paid, But I tell you... the cost of the road will be more than compensated by the income it will regenerate. You of all people know about the shortage of fire wood just a couple of years ago in a harsh winter, with that road we could have enough firewood. And what about the needs of the other town? We could and should discuss this matter over money with them. I am sure they will see the benefits for this road and will pay must certainly there fair share. You have only to look at the possibilities. There is a world out there to build... what are you waiting for?" This meeting continues for almost two hours and then a new meeting was scheduled....

Becoming a Presto
Presto's are mainly Wizards, Sorcerers or a Bard, and some off them are from the prestige class Prestidigitator. These spell casters, through their travels, have come to realize that the world could be a wonderful place if they could just stop the unnecessary fighting and destroying and focus on cooperation and understanding everyones needs.
So Presto's talk to almost everybody about creation and cooperation to inspire as many people as possible specially those with influence. This is mainly done in public establishments, a favorite being taverns, were they strongly advocate for creation and cooperation instead of destruction. Or more subtly, by giving a performance with little warnings mixed in their stories and foretelling how wonderful it could be, or bad, depending on which choices are made.
Not all people are happy with this point of view, especially when more people are persuaded to follow the way of the presto. Some have nothing to gain from this, but all the more to lose. So a Presto can encounter or create situations which are not very healthy for her and those who follow her. She will be warned, but most likely would not listen. Maybe some setbacks will be orchestrated, so that she and her followers might change their mind, but the true Presto doesn’t quit at the first setback and if you don't succeed at first you try a second time... a third... higher is not uncommon.
Her obsession with creation also reflects in her magic. The spell Prestidigitation is the foundation of the Presto. They have mastered the spell so that they can use it with almost unlimited possibilities, by some it is also known as the “Pocket Wish" or "Small wish”.

If she had only half the material she need than the cost would be 3/10 of the price in gp = 72 XP, (half of 120 plus half of 24 = 72 XP).
If the check fails or you lose your concentration you have wasted your XP.
Minimal cost 1 XP

A Concentration check (DC 15) needs to be made when making up a somatic component. Failure can either mean spell failure or a roll on the chart available in Dragon issue 302 pg 52 (if available). If making up both a verbal and a somatic component DC is raised to 20. (inspired eeh... copied form Prestidigitator.

Versatile Prestidigitation (Supernatural):
You have enough excess magical power to perform minor tasks and chores without needing to worry about draining your reserves of power.
1. You can use the spell Prestidigitation freely as a Swift Action on basic level.
2. Beside fire with “fire-finger” you can also use acid, air(with oxygen), cold, electricity, light, sonic and water
3. You can create glowing balls, any color and brightness not exceeding the table, and put them on any location in your range of the spell, were they will stay for the duration of the spell regardless where you later are.
You have reached a fundamental understanding of the spell Prestidigitation that enables you to create one duplicate of your own body and, if present, your familiar.
This duplicate is corporeal, at creation the duplicates health is equal as the original health. The duplicate, feels, looks, sound, smells and taste like the original. It has the same clothes on as the original at the moment of creation, including all weapons, objects, gold, backpack and other possessions she has with her. Magical or divine items are also copied, but without the magical or divine properties. Master-work items looks like master work, but are effectively regular items. Duplicate potions do not work but they have the same color, smell and taste. Magical scrolls and/or books are identical but on close inspection and a successful arcana check, they will notice that it is a fake with no value at all. Items lost or given by the duplicate will remain until the spell has ended. You cannot copy items this way where you have no experience with, at DM discretion.
You can create the duplicate anywhere in the range of the spell and only in a location were you have been or in your line of sight. It will be in the same position as you are. The duplicate has by creation her eyes shut and doesn't respond to any stimulus. You can take control of the duplicate by merely thinking on your duplicate and than closing you own eyes. If the duplicate is not in your line of sight it takes a concentration check of DC 10 before closing your eyes if you don't succeed the concentration check, you remain in darkness....
If you succeed then you control your duplicate, and you can see, hear, feel, smell, talk taste, and act through the duplicate as if it were yourself. You control the body just like your own with one exception of the eyes. Remaining in control of the duplicate doesn’t require a concentration check. However given the situation the duplicate and/or original can be in, the DM can ask for a concentration check, for keeping control of the duplicate and/or of your own body. You can choose to shut-down your own(original body) sense(s) or not, both have benefits but also handicaps.
It can perform all the tasks that the controller is able to do, but tasks higher than DC10 require a concentration check equal to the surplus. The duplicate is able to fight, but this requires a concentration check of DC15, at DM discretion.
You can use spells though your duplicate, but it requires a concentration check of the level of the spell multiplied by 5. Casting a cantrip doesn’t require a concentration check.
You can make a duplicate of your familiar, he/she has to be with you (range 0) during the creation, but unless you have a way to make your familiar shut her eyes and make him understand how to control her duplicate, the duplicate will just stand/sit in the same position as the original was during creation.
- Controlling the duplicate takes all you concentration and attention, which make it better to maintain control of your duplicate in a save and silent place with “preferable” some protection. If your real body is distracted you must make a concentration check DC, at DM discretion, to remain in control of you duplicate.
- If you duplicate you control is in trouble and/or in a stressful situation, you also must make a concentration check, at DM discretion, for keeping your real body under control.
- When the caster is in control of her duplicate she cannot shut her eyes without using her hands. If for any reason you open your real eyes, you lose control of the duplicate and your duplicate experience what looks like a “black out”. Her eyes automatically close. You can only regain control by closing your own eyes again and with a succeeded concentration check of DC15.
- When the duration of the spell had ended the duplicate simply vanish(including what she has eaten) into thin air leaving behind whatever she has taken with her after her creation. With her vanish all items that were created with her regardless were they are leaving only behind items what she self has taken with her after creation.
- The duplicate takes damage as the original would, you have to succeed a concentration check equal to the damage she received, if you fail you lose control of your duplicate. The duplicate can also be healed as the original but a healer can notice, Heal check vs result Prestidigitation check, at DM discretion, that this body is not so normal as it appears to be. If the HP of the duplicate reach -10 it dies.
- If the connection is forcefully or unsuspected broken the caster has to succeed on a will save DC15 or is dazed for D20 rounds. - It takes a successful concentration check before you can cast a spell, the DC is spell level multiplied by 5, cantrips counts as 0.
Equal to your own at creation.
You can now create intelligent duplicate('s) with her familiar if present. She thinks for herself, she thinks and acts as if she is the original except when in present of the original. She has the knowledge you have at her creation. She is absolute loyal to the creator and know that they are only temporary but you have no control over her. The duplicate(s) can decide to end her existence by successful Will check DC15, Your duplicate always know were you and other duplicate are, and in what state you and other duplicate are and vice versa.
These duplicate('s) can also, if you choose so, use spells but it comes from the same source. Your remaining spells per day will be if possible divided equally with you and your duplicate('s). what can't be divided equally stays with the original. See table for a example of dividing "spells per day". For a prepared spell caster this means that the duplicates knows the same prepared spells as the original at creation. For a spontaneous caster, they know all the spells the original knows at creation. A duplicate can, if there is enough time, also go the sleep and prepare her spells. But a duplicate prepared spell caster can do this only with the original spell book. And the “spells per day” stays the same as by creation.
Duplicate new statistics:
Duration = Like in the feat Improved Prestidigitation but days instead of hours.
There can only be a maximum duplicates active equal to your primary ability modifier.
Example: You create one intelligent duplicate and divide the “spells per day” between you two, where you have roughly more than half available for yourself. Than later decided to create another intelligent duplicate. You must than divide the remaining “spells per day" you posses between you two, leaving you with roughly one fourth. While your first intelligent duplicate still has her half. If you duplicate stop existing you will immediately regain her unused “spells per day” you regain her used spells and after a good night sleep. You know what she has learned and experience in a dream as if it were you who has learned and experienced this, but you will know the difference.Table: How "spells per day" are divided among intelligent duplicates and the original, all the duplicates are created at the same time.
|Level||Spells per day||1 dup + original||2 dup + original||3 dup + original|
|0||6||3 - 3||2 - 2||1 - 3|
|1||5||2 - 3||1 - 3||1 - 2|
|2||4||2 - 2||1 - 2||1 - 1|
|3||3||1 - 2||1 - 1||0 - 3|
Recreate Sphere Supernatural:
You can recreate all damaged non magical or divine items and objects in your range if you succeed at the required Concentration checks.
You focus your magical energy on recreating. Then magical energy appears around your body, first as a thin mist of bright variations of blue color then going more dens and brighter and slowly moving around you body as a sort off small whirlwind. In the last half minute of the preparation you will know that you have gathered enough magic energy and extend your fist. The magical energy is slowly moving upwards your body, still like a whirlwind, towards your fist and it is concentrating around it. It forms like a small metallic blue sphere large enough to cover your fist and is semi transparent. It emits bright blue light with a range equal to the range of effect but it's non blinding. It forms a bright blue outer sphere, at maximum range, that is clearly visible. This allows the caster to see clearly the area (even in darkness) which will be effected by the Recreate Sphere and you can move to a better position if need to be. In this phase you don't have to concentrate anymore and can talk freely and be disturbed so long as your fist remains closed. When your are ready you open your fist and slam your open hand on a surface. This will be the center of the Recreate Sphere. The sphere will slowly expand from hereon at walk speed and repair items and objects while its passes by until it reaches the outer sphere and vanish.
Depending on the range this expanding Recreate Sphere takes about 2 seconds for a range of 3 feet till about 200 seconds for 300 feet.
You have to spend spell slots to determine the range of this powerful Ability.
Its 3 feet multiplied with the level of the spend slots, cantrips counts as 1,5 feet .
Example: By spending two level 2 slots you have a range of (2x2x3) 12 feet
Example: By spending one level 3 spell slot you have a range of (3x3) 9 feet.
For each each 3 feet you add 1 minute you need to prepare this, with a minimum of 5 minutes.
First to activate this ability, for every 9 feet of range add 1 to the concentration check, with a minimum of 5.
It you fail this check than you cannot use this ability again for the remainder of the day.
If you succeed the first check, then you may not be disturbed for the duration of the preparation, if you are, you have to retake the first check.
If you lose concentration than the magical energy is wasted and will disperse with no visible effect.
Second concentration check, before the last half minute has passed, for every 6 feet of range add 1 to the concentration check, with a minimum of 10. If you fail this than the magical energy is wasted and will disperse in a blinding explosion. A reflex safe DC15 or be blinded for range in rounds.
Example: 9 feet means 5 minutes preparation a DC5 for the first check and DC10 for the second
Example: 90 feet means 30 minutes preparation a DC10 for the first check and DC15 for the second
Example: 180 feet means 60 minutes preparation a DC20 for the first check and DC30 for the second
Example: 300 feet means 100 minutes preparation a DC34 for the first check and DC50 for the second
Every non magical or divine items or objects in the reach of Recreate Sphere will be recreated provided if at least 90% of the item or object is still present in whatever form. Everything that enters the area of effect after the start of the expansion will not be subjected to the effect of this ability.
People inside the sphere will experience a strange urge/need to create or repair something as the expanding sphere passes them. A will save equal to the second DC result to ignore this. Otherwise they have this urge for DC result in rounds.
Example: Your are standing in a small house were a tree has fallen upon. The house is 30 by 18 by 10. 30 divided by 3 means that you have to spend a worth of 10 points on spell slots. It will take 10 minutes to prepare this and you have to succeed on a DC5 for the first check and a DC10 for the second and final concentration check. But you have to remove the three first. Example: You can also recreate/restore books this way, but it may contain nothing useful depending in what state it was. At DM discretion.

She has to touch you and sacrifice her own life to give life to yourself, this also works for you familiar.

Presto's in the World
|“||Creation or destruction? must I spell it out for you... than lets talk about it...||”|
|—Sorcerers Sublime , Human, Presto, Prestidigitator and Sorcerers|
They are not many Presto's and even fewer who knows all the secrets. But you will recognize one if you know were to look for. Maybe one of the Presto will find you first, she or he will tell you if you want to take some time to listen to her about the virtues of creation. The Presto can often be found in city’s of village's were change is coming. For the worse or good the Presto will insist that she will be heard.
NPC Reactions: Most NPC's will react to a Presto as they would to any magic user. The Presto can be troublesome, not to mention bothersome, if she has to urge to tell about creation and act to it. Sometimes the Presto is advising craftsman, about their work, regardless if it is appreciated. But not all Presto's are so, some are more subtle and noticing there agenda takes a high effort of time and skill.
Characters with ranks in Knowledge (arcana) can research Presto's to learn more about them. When a character makes a skill check, read or paraphrase the following, including information from lower DCs.

|31||Sen (Gardner) Sorcerers Sublime, has invented this class, to find her is tricky, but she is still busy with the spell Prestidigitation and searching all information she can to improve it even further.|
|41||Presto's can make a duplicate of their body, but only a handful of people know this and even fewer possess this knowledge.|
