A Void Mage is any race that happens to find itself imbued with the powers of the void. A Void Mage must be chaotic but cannot be chaotic evil. A Void Mage must have a link to magical backgrounds for their magical powers are inherent. Void Mages gain control of their spells as they grow in strength, but at weaker levels they may actually lose control of their spells.
Making a Void Mage
A Void Mage Is a heavy damage dealer even early on in the campaign, However the weaker they are the harder time they have controlling their magic. This can lead to outcomes That may possibly make your party angry with you. At least until you strengthen and gain control of your spells.
Multi-classing into a Void Mage has special requirements: 1) You must have 3 ranks in each spellcraft AND knowledge (arcana), 2) must have knowledge of the void (recollect the knowledge though any sort of knowledge check) 3) You must Roll a d20 when you fall asleep at night and roll a 25 or higher (character level + Charisma modifier - Strength modifier) [a negative modifier for str is a bonus to your die roll while a negative Cha modifier is subtracted from your roll] 4) upon reaching a roll high enough to multi-class into a Void Mage you get pulled into the void for 1d3 days when you exit the void you exit at your party members, they recognize you but notice your trip to the void has changed you. during your trip to the void you must move at least one alignment, must be chaotic but cannot be chaotic evil.
Abilities: Cha is important for spell penetration and spell damage, Wis is important to save yourself from failed spells and extra HP.
Races: Races with a tendency towards magic Void mages are never human because the Void shatters the Human Soul creating a "Voidwalker" which Are Chaotic inherently evil masters of the void with the only goal being to destroy the world.

A powerful spell caster who's soul has become one with the void. The spell caster seeking greater power now seeks only the chaos of survival of the fittest and wishes for a peaceful balance at the same time. They never back down from a challenge and refuse to lose even if that means dying to win. All of the following are class features of the Void Mage.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: proficient with scythes, staves, and daggers.
Spells: A Void Mage casts Void spells which are drawn primarily from the Void spell list(shown below.) They can cast any spell they know without preparing it ahead of time.
To learn or cast a spell, a Void Mage must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Void Magi's spell is 10 + the spell level + the Void Magi's Charisma modifier.
Like other spellcasters, a Void Mage can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. The base daily spell allotment is given above.
A Void Magi's selection of spells is limited. A Void Mage begins play knowing four 0-level spells and three 1st-level spells of your choice. At each new Void Mage level, They gain one or more new spells, as indicated on Table: Void Mage Spells Known. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a Void Mage knows is not affected by their Charisma score; the numbers on Table: Void Mage Spells Known are fixed.) These new spells can be Conj spells chosen from the sorcerer/wizard spell list, or they can be Spells from the Void caster spell list below as well as spells that the Void Mage has gained some understanding of by study. The Void Mage can’t use this method of spell acquisition to learn spells at a faster rate, however.
Upon reaching a new level in order to rearrange your spell list (add/change spells known), a Void Mage must meditate making a DC 15 concentration roll to bring themselves to a state of learning mindset while summoning a void barrier around themselves. In this state a Void Mage may in effect, “lose” an old spell in exchange for the new one of the same level, as well as acquire the knowledge of the new spells from a level up. A Void Mage may only do this in a time frame of 5 days from a level up when their mind is most in-tune with the void.
Void Mage's choose their spells from the following list(as well as the conj spells from sorcerer/wizard's spell list):

<-spell-like class feature-> (Sp): <-class feature game rule information->
<-Chaos of the void-> (Su): a Void Mage must roll a d20 after every spell cast on even numbers 1-6 the spell fails and hits a random party member for 1+spell level damage. If an odd number 1-6 is rolled than the spell sort of fails hitting a random opponent for 1+spell level damage (the choice for how random is determined is up to the Dungeon Master, even Dungeon master's choice is an option)
Summon Voidling: your voidling grants you +2 hp and +1 Strength and gains stats equal to 1/2 yours and may deliver touch attacks for you but primarily is your mount, you only need to make a riding check if you are in combat while riding the voidling. If your voidling ever dies you must wait one month to summon a new one but for that time you take -2 to hp and -2 to Strength and -1 to charisma
Immortal Aura: you and all friendlies in your area (5ft/level away) gain a +1d6 bonus to all saves
You may choose one and will never be able to choose the other:
Hardened Void: the hardiest of all void afflicted you now have the die hard feat as well as gaining a +1 bonus to your Strength and Charisma modifier.
Immortal of the Void: A member of the void so obsessed with never being over powered that at 0 hp crystallizes himself in diamond giving a +16AC for 1d6 rounds and is considered stabilized if at the end of that time the Void Mage is still alive then They come back at full hp. (takes a -1 to Constitution and Charisma modifiers) once/wk gains twice/wk at level 7 three times/wk at 13 and 4 times/wk at 18
True void knowledge: The Void Mage is now acquainted with their void powers, no longer Suffers from Chaos of the void
Void walk: As you become more in-tune with the void you learn how to physically form your body into void energy to disengage from combat without provoking an attack of opportunity on yourself.
You may choose one and will never be able to choose the other:
Transform area (Void): The void takes over giving all in the area of effect a +3 to their charisma modifiers all afflicted with void gain 10 movement while on the area as well. However all non-void creatures are considered flat footed at all times on this area but no one can hold weapons while in the afflicted area. Lasts 1d8 turns for 5*2d8-5ft once per week
Transform area (null magic): a null magic bubble traps those within, all spells currently active are dispelled and no spells may be cast. All within the bubble take a -3 to AC and a +3 to their strength modifier. Lasts 1d8 turns for 5*2d8-5ft once per week
adept modifier: When you see this you may either add an extra feat or a +1 in any modifier of your choice but you cant place in the same modifier twice in a row (you may place 1 point in charisma, gain a feat, then place in Charisma with DM approval)
Void leach- twice/day you may choose to sacrifice 10 hp +total spell level to cast 2 spells in the same turn as a normal action (cannot silence you or leach hp for you) or to use a normal spell to acquire 1/2 the damage rounded up drained from them and placed into you (you main gain extra hp for the remainder of the battle this way but this spell may not be a draining spell)
If a Void Mage becomes Chaotic-Evil they lose control of their void powers. They are still treated as a Void Mage for leveling purposes but must roll a d20 for every spell cast even number 1-16 it will hit a random target opponent and the Charisma modifier is not added for the save of the spell and the spell will deal 1 damage and that is it on. If it lands on an odd number 1-16 the same affect only it will strike a random teammate for 1 damage. 17 or higher the spell succeeds but you just use 10+spell level you do not use Charisma to help you at all. You cannot learn any new spells or abilities till you become Chaotic-Neutural again. All modifiers are also reduced to 0 until you become Chaotic-Neutural except your Strength and Dexterity modifiers.
If a Void Mage Stops being Chaotic, the Void leaves their body in an extremely painful manner spanning 1day/level. During this time all they can do is lay in the fetal position, and drink. At the end of this process they are left extremely weak from not eating or sleeping but are able to enjoy the peace of the life they once had before they allowed the void to enter them. However, the void follows the user calling them back to the void with extreme misfortune in life.
