Wild Mage (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The Wild Mage is a sorcerer of sorts,but instead of magic being in the blood of Draconic ancestry.The Wild Mages power is drawn from positive and negative energy planes,leading to a spellcaster who can heal as great as the cleric destroy like the wizard and control the elements as a druid.but in trade for this power the Wild mage has no control over what spells they are casting and use a wild mage surge chart(DMs choice)before they can even cast.
Making a Wild Mage
Due to its unlimited spell choices the Wild mage can take the role of any spell caster,how ever its inability to control the forces of magic make it a weapon against enemy and ally alike.
Abilities: Charisma is the most important as it allows for more powerful spells after that Dexterity and constitution to make up for the lack of armor, and Intellect for skills.
Races: Any race could be a Wild Mage Whether or not they become one is based on factors like living in a major city where ambient divine and arcane magic lingers or if the were born in a tribal forest home near a center of magical focus.

All of the following are class features of the Wild Mage.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: the Wild Mage may only use simple weapons and no armors or shield.
Spells: To learn or cast a spell, a Wild Mage must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Wild Mage’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the Wild Mage’s Charisma modifier. Wild mages use the Sorcerer/wizard spell list.
Die-casting: Whenever a Wild mage tries to use a spell they must first chose a spell level to cast from then roll for spell failure with an automatic 50% fail chance.Upon failure roll on wild mage surge chart(If DM decided you need one)if you succeed the percentile check, roll 1d10 and cast what ever spell you have set for that number.
True power: upon reaching 18th level the Wild-Mage can roll a D100 (aka percentile roll) and cast what ever spell fits that number if the roll is 91 or above the DM may chose what spell you cast,when using this ability any spell cast has no cost and doesn't count toward the caster spells per day. this Ability can be used a number of times per day equal to Wild Mage's Charisma modifier.
Any Wild Mage who loses their Chaotic nature gains 99% spell failure on all magical abilities until there alignment is restored.
