Toa of Light
While they have some abilities with weapons, toa are most known for their telekinesis-like power of an element. A toa of light wields the strength of light, enabling them to generate simple aura's and shines, to searing blasts, pinpoint lasers, and much more. What a toa of light is capable of is directly affected by his/her creativity, as the possibilities are virtually infinite.
Making a Toa of Light
Toa of Light are normally liked by nearly all. They are known for their acceptance of others, and thus most accept them. They do often have issues with malicious people, though. While toa's of light have so many option, they are relatively well-balanced beyond their light-based abilities. They have medium physical and terrible spell prowess. Only through creative use of their light powers can they truly shine.
Abilities: As with all toa, Intelligence is a must. Their elemental powers are more affected by this than other stat. Beyond that, the value of stats is up to the direction the player wants; Strength will increase their weapon damage. Dexterity will increase their dodging and hitting chances. Constitution will increase their health and energy amount to spend on elemental abilities. Wisdom will increase Will, which plays into their Concentration checks. Charisma is of little use other than for roleplaying.
Races: Humanoids and human-shaped constructs only.
Alignment: Any Good. Toa of Light can become other alignments later, though.

Class Skills (<-number of skill points-> + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
. All of the following are class features of the Toa of Light.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: simple and military weapons. Dagger, Dagger(punching), Mace(light), Sickle, Shortspear, Longspear, Quarterstaff, Spear, Javelin, Hammer(light), Pick(light), Sword(short), Longsword, Trident, Glaive, Greatsword, Guisarme, Halberd, Lance, Ranseur, Scythe, Kama, Hammer(gnome hooked) Toa of Light are proficient with light and medium armors and light shields up to light steel.
Light Power: A Toa of Light influences and generates light in a limitless number of potential uses. They may generate light and move it at will. This allows them shape and reshape light, change the colors of light, and unleash it in searing blasts.
Flash: A toa can emit a flash of light from him/herself in a spherical radius. This costs 1 Element Point per 10 feet in the radius. When made to do damage, it is counted as an area of effect attack.
Sustained: A toa can generate/move up to 1 cubic foot/level up to 1 foot/level from him/herself each round. This takes 1 Element Point per cubic foot and 1 per foot in distance. Each round, the toa must make a Concentration check to maintain it (number of cubic feet+number of feet in distance). If the toa ceases to hold it or ceases concentration, the light dissipates, emitting in all directions. The light continues 20 feet for each cubic foot. This is counted as an area of effect for casting purposes.
Laser: Toa of light can emit thin laser beams from themselves as well. The ray continues until interrupted. This takes 1 Element Point. As an attack, this is counted as a ranged touch attack.
Burning: When concentrated enough, light can burn through virtually anything. By adding more Element Points, a toa's light abilities can be turned lethal. The more energy is put into it, the higher the damage. Add 1d6 damage for each 3 Element Points spent for damage.
Toa Mask: As with a toa of any element, a toa of light has a mask, or 'Kanohi', with a power infused into it. As a starter mask, a toa selects a spell that does not deal damage itself(spells such as Summon Monster do not deal damage themselves, and thus may be used). The wearer may activate this spell at will. If the player's character level is lower than the spell level(if different classes have it, then the lower spell level is used), then they must pay 5 Element Points/Spell Level. If the mask is damaged with anything more than small notch or scratch, the spell effect may is released from the mask, and no longer functions. The chosen spell must be approved by the DM. The price of a Kanohi is the material+(10 GP/Spell Level of the Spell infused).
Toa Tool: All toa come equipped with a Toa Tool. Upon becoming a toa, the character receives a weapon(of his/her choice). This weapon is considered mastercraft, and must be made of mithril or a harder metal. In addition, the weapon may be imbued with 1 ability, such as: becoming another type of tool, becoming a surfboard, or something else of the sort, Or: a magical effect, such as being Keen. In addition, all touch and ranged-touch attacks s/he gets from his/her toa class may be cast through this weapon. This weapon may not improved by any means other than being completely remade. The ability chosen must be approved by the Dm. If a character becomes a toa after character creation, the cost of purchasing a toa tool is the price of the material+75,000 GP.
Power Points/Day: A <-class name->’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 <-relevant ability-> 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.

Playing a Toa of Light
Religion: <-description of how this class typically (but no exclusively) approaches religion including likely portfolios it would worship->. Toa's of light may respect religions, though they are surprisingly rarely devout worshippers, as they are so questioning that they rarely feel at home in dogmatic settings.
Other Classes: <-How this class typically interacts with other classes and how characters of this class interact with characters of other classes->. Toa's of Light normally do well enough with all people. They do have issues with those who force their own desires on others, and those who are openly malicious. Being both a warrior and something similar to a spellcaster, they can relate with almost any class type.
Combat: <-Typical role in combat->. A toa of light's place in combat is dependent on his/her ability scores and feats, as well as their creativity in certain areas. Stronger, more dexterous and more enduring ones do well acting as front line fighters supplementing their weapons with light attacks. Those with higher Intelligence and Wisdom may choose to stay in the back and cast powerful light abilities. Other positions are also easily possible with them.
Advancement: <-Typical advancement options for characters with this class. Include desirable multiclass options->.
