Cauldron Chanter[]

Now that I have your pinky, you will be my minion forever! Mwahahahaha!

The Cauldron Chanter is a class for the sort of caster who likes to stay far out of combat.

Class Features[]

All of the following are class features of the Cauldron Chanter.

Cauldron Chant: The Cauldron Chanter can make any of her spells, spell-like abilities, psionic powers, manifestations, etc. hit anybody on the plane as long as the ability does not have a Personal range and either targets or is centered on a specific character. The extra time and difficulty to cast the ability is dependent on the ability's original range, how well she knows the target's name, and what body parts of theirs she possesses. Independent of the difficulty, she always needs a cauldron filled with boiling liquid.
