Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Truenamer.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: All simple weapons and all light armor. Not proficient with shields.

Known personal truename: You have learned your personal true name and if you are too tell anyone your name they have a chance of controlling you or risk giving the name to someone who will. Knowing your true name would also allow you to affect yourself with utterances a lot easier. You get a +4 on true speak in affecting yourself with utterances.

Word play: Every even level of your Truenamer class you choose a new wordplay technique that you learned how to manipulate utterances.

Cat got your tongue- As a prepared action you receive a +4 bonus on your Truespeak when countering someone else who is using utterances. When using this ability if you succeed on rolling a Truespeak check higher than whoever your countering you will send the utterance that is being used against the one who spoke at some begin with. The utterance will also inflict a negative effect or whichever affect can actually harm against the one who spoke the utterance.

Delayed words- Your utterances can be delayed up to 5 rounds or less.

Enchanting Words- You can take Item creation feats and your Truenamer levels count as your caster level.

Greater Name scrying- Same effect as Name scrying except you can cast utterances through the subject no matter how far away you two are from each other. You must have Name scrying and 10 Truenamer levels.

Greater Silver tongue- +1 Bonus on Truespeak for every 2 Truenamer levels. You must have Silver tongue and must have 10 levels of Truenamer or more before taking this Wordplay.

Influence speech- You can give a Truespeak bonus to your non-Truenamer allies that allows your allies to use the truespeak skill as if trained with a +4 on truespeak bonus every three Truenamer levels. It only lasts for 1d4+1 rounds. To do this action it takes a swift action to activate.

Metawords- You can use Metamagic feats with your utterances. Each spell slot that a metamagic feat increases is a +5 to your Truespeak DC check. For example (Empower spell increases a spell by two spell slots therefore increasing your check by +10).

Name scrying- You utter the truename of the targets that you successfully researched their true name and you can see, hear, smell, touch, and taste everything that a subject is experiencing as if you're scrying them. For example (if you learned the name of one of your allies or an enemy's name you can use this ability and experience everything they're experiencing from afar). You can also speak to each other telepathically. You must have Truename research.

Obscure backlash- If someone tries to affect you with an utterance and failed they will be affected by one of the utterances you know. You still have to make the Truespeak check for that utterance.

Rebuttal ally defense- You can do the same effect as Rebuttal defense except you can use this on an ally. You must have Rebuttal defense and must have a Truenamer level of five or higher.

Rebuttal defense- You can set an utterance to activate when and attack hits you. You must succeed on the truespeak check and then the effect of the utterance will stay with you unless canceled or activated. You can only use this on yourself.

Silver tongue- +1 Bonus on Truespeak for every four Truenamer levels starting at level 4.

Tricky name- Someone who is trying to affect you with an utterance that does not know your truename will have to make a higher check of +1 per character level.

Written names- You can write your utterances on a surface and activate them when read. This is mainly used in case you want to be quiet with your utterances kind of like a silent spell feat. You still have to make the DC check for your utterance. Someone else can use the utterance when read correctly.

Words echo- Unless specified there is no range limit to your utterances.

Truename research: You are researching the true name of a target that could be valuable for whatever purpose you have intended for the target. Whether it's to control them or supports them when learning their true name. To learn the true name you need to make a knowledge check of whatever the subject follows under for knowledge and you must make a 30 or higher on the check. Then when you're successful you will make a Truespeak skill check of (2XCR or level of the target +17). If you are successful in both checks you will then get a +4 bonus on your Truespeak whenever you say the true name. Research for a true name would take a week.

Saying my name and I am there: You develop the ability of a nickname that you can give to people and if they say that name you can choose to teleport to their location or decide not to. This nickname is not your true name. This ability is useful when allies need your help.

Master name’s: You can take either another wordplay ability or take a master name of ability. Master names are far more powerful than ordinary wordplay abilities that allow you to transcend from the normal powers of mortals.

Beings true name-You can summon an outsider of any kind that is 2 hit dice below your own. This outsider will become your servants will follow any orders you command. However if you give in order that the outsider disagrees with such as telling evil outsider to commit good deeds or ordering and good outsider to commit evil acts eventually they might betray you for ordering them to commit such things. You can only summon one outsider. You can run summon the outsider whenever you want and summon a different one. When summoning the outsider it takes a standard action and a truespeak check of 2xCR+15.

Immortality: You have unlocked the secret word of immortality. You no longer die of old age and any physical penalties of old age will no longer affect you. Any current penalties that you received from old age will disappear. You can still die from enough damage or death effects or anything that could kill you normally.

Erase existence: 1/Day You can erase someone or something from existence. You must know the true name of the target(s) and then you can speak the words that could erace them DC (CR or Level x 2 +30). Reverse the effect with the same DC to bring them back into existence this can only work 1/Day.
