[3.5] Psicrystal Master (prestige class)
« Topic Start: November 05, 2011, 07:46:28 PM »
So I watched a few episodes of Heroman and thought "Hey, this is a 'Big Guy is With Me' build". And decided that there should be an alternative for those who don't want to use metamorphosis. So... did I go overboard or not far enough?


Requirements
Skills: Psicraft 8 ranks
Feats: Psicrystal Affinity

HD: d4
BAB: Poor
Saves: Will good

Skills: The Psicrystal Master's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Autohypnosis (Wis), Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Knowledge (psionics) (Int), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), and Psicraft (Int)
Skill points per level: 2 + Int

Psicrystal power: A Psicrystal Master may designate any power which could be shared with his psicrystal as a Psicrystal Power. From now on he may only target his psicrystal with that power, but its ML is increased by 1.

Astral psicrystal: At 1st level a Psicrystal Master's psicrystal increases in size and gains a more defined shape. It now has the stats of a 1st-level astral construct, except that it retains the HD of its original form (giving it better BAB, etc.) as well as its Int score and hardness. At every odd level thereafter its stats improve to match those of an astral construct of one level higher or it gains one class level. You may change the menu items granted whenever you gain a character level. The psicrystal still gains abilities based on its master's level as normal, with the exception of the self-propulsion and flight abilities. The psicrystal is not actually an astral construct, and thus cannot be affected by Boost Construct and similar feats.

Improved Psicrystal: At 1st level and again at 6th level, a Psicrystal Master receives Improved Psicrystal as a bonus feat.

Ability boost: At every 2nd level, one of the ability scores of the Psicrystal Master's psicrystal increases by 1.

Psicrystal Toughness: At 2nd level and every third level thereafter, a psicrystal gains additional hit points equal to 1 per character level of the Psicrystal Master (the number of hitpoints increases as his character level does).

Extra Menu Item: At 4th level the psicrystal gains an additional ability from the menu available to astral constructs, as if it were an astral construct created with the Boost Construct feat. At 10th level it gains a third ability.


New Feats
Psicrystal Suppression [Psionic]
Prerequisites: Astral Psicrystal
Benefit: As an immediate action you may suppress your Psicrystal Master class features, causing your psicrystal to revert to its original Diminutive form. It does not regain the self-propulsion or flight abilities, but recovers 1 point of damage per minute while in this state. Returning the psicrystal to its larger size requires a standard action.

Strong Personality [Psicrystal]
Prerequisites: Must be a Psicrystal
Benefit: Both you and your master gain the benefits of any personality fragments you have.
Normal: Only your master receives any benefit from your personality.

Psicrystal Speech [Psicrystal]
Prerequisites: Must be a Psicrystal
Benefit: You gain the ability to speak audibly.

Ectopic Shift [Psicrystal]
Prerequisites: Must be a Psicrystal
Benefit: You gain the benefits of one Ectopic FormCP feat as if you were an astral construct shaped by a manifester who possessed it.
Special: For the purposes of anathemic carapace, the psicrystal is treated as if it were just created, and can choose to detonate itself.
Special: You may select this feat multiple times. Each time, you select a different ability.

Astral paragon: The Psicrystal Master's psicrystal can advance beyond the limits of an astral construct. If its level would increase but it already has the stats of a 9th-level astral construct it gains a +4 bonus to Strength and natural armour, its speed increases by 10ft, and its size increases by one category. Once it becomes Colossal, additional applications of this class feature instead grant +4 Strength and natural armour.
