Scarred Magician PP
“The blood you see isn’t from your pathetic attack; rather it is my new spell I made especially for you!”
An ancient and thought to be lost arcane path, the Scarred Magician was predominantly used by Orc tribes long ago in their attempts to defend their homes. While most wizards take from those around them and leave brutalized landscapes behind, the scarred magician draws spells from within and unleashes those spells outwards the cost being brutal scars that erupt from their flesh. Each spell creates a different scar and, with practice, a scarred magician can alter the scars as they form to alter the very spell to be cast. Enemies of a scarred magician never know what to expect as no there is no absolute for the scarred magician. Only one thing is certain, just as their spells wounds themselves, the scarred magician is sure to mirror their pain to those who dare to oppose them.
Prerequisite: Templar of Ty’lum’this theme or Spell Source class feature
Scarred Magician Path Features:
Power from Within: You can no longer use the ability Arcane Defiling
Create Scar (11th level): Whenever you use an arcane attack power, you can choose to take damage equal to your level as a free action. This damage cannot be reduced or negated in any way. If you do so, choose Acid, Cold, Fire, Force, Lightning, Necrotic, Poison, Psychic, Radiant, or thunder. The power gains that keyword and deals damage of that type instead of its original for this use.
Scarring Action (11th level): When you use an action point to make an attack, one target of that attack takes ongoing 10 damage (save ends). This damage has the same damage type as the power that you used with your action point. Additionally, you can use your Create Scar feature with the granted attack without taking damage.
Masterful Scar (16th level): Whenever you use your Create Scar feature, the power now deals both its original type of damage and the chosen type of damage. If the original damage was untyped, choose two types from the Create Scar feature’s choices, the power now deals both those types of damage instead.
