91- Binder

By concentrating and taking a full round to incant a spirit or ghost's true name, you can force them to inhabit an object like a vase, bottle, box, or bag. This only works on beings who have HD equal to or less your level. Once per day, you may force a spirit you've trapped to reveal a secret to you or perform some minor action for you, but you must banish them to the spirit realm after you force a spirit to obey you three times. More powerful creatures can give better secrets or even cast spells for you.

92- Conjurer
HP- As MU, +1 at first level

You can conjure forth basic objects of simple construction, like some clothes, bundle of arrows, a sword, etc. You can do this a number of times per day equal to level and all objects fade away after a day if you do not use them or touch them. You can use this power to create non-magical food or drink but must spend time with whoever ate it or else it will fade in their belly and cause them to starve.

93- Illusionist

You can create illusions that can fool one sense per level+1. Touch includes heat and friction in this case. Illusions can be dispelled by beings that don't believe them or by taking too much magical damage. Illusions people believe can affect them at about ½ the power of an actual being or spell of that type if it was actually real.

94- Shaman
HP- As Cleric, -1 per level

When wearing a spirit mask, you get +2 to saves for wise masks OR enemies get -2 to morale for scare masks. When banging a drum, all allies gain +1 to hit and damage and initiative. The shaman can burn the bones of an animal who had a strong spirit or dutiful life and the smoke from this fire will heal 1 hit point per HD of the animal to all who breathe it in.

95- Seer
HP- As MU, +1 at first level

By reading a palm, with a crystal ball, or with tea leaves you can spin a fortune which grants anyone else a hunch roll or +4 AC against a single attack from an enemy you know of in advance. You can do this once per day per level, but only once per person. Additionally, you can meditate to astrally project outside your body a number of yards up to your Seer level.

96- Arcanist

You can cast spells through the carving of magic runes. Any spell effect you've learned from an item or studying the bones of a creature can be inked onto paper to create a simple sigil that can be used once and is then burned, or carved into a piece of equipment to be used by the person holding it or into a wall, door, or book to be cast as a trap. These spell effects are reduced and weakened versions of the normal spells you know.

97- Witch

You can curse people. This requires a ritual and you can only have a number of these curses active equal to your level or less. If you curse someone with polymorph they may instead just turn into that animal when they sleep, or only during certain phases of the moon since the curses are limited.

98- Sorcerer

You can press your own magical presence onto other people to influence them, either by granting +1 per level to reaction checks with that creature or granting them -1 to morale checks. You can only do this once per being per adventure. You can force the world to damage an enemy or object, which either takes the strain directly or nearby objects lash out at them to accomplish your will. Deals 1d6 damage and can do this only enough times it makes sense in your environment. You can twist fate once per day, roll d20 + your level to change circumstances.

99- Wizard

You can learn magical spells. By reading a scroll or spell book you can write down and formulate new magical powers for you to cast. You can cast a number of spells per day equal to your level. You start with two spells.

100- Warrior

+1 to all attacks with weapons per level. Add +1 damage to your attacks every even level. Once per adventure, heal 1d6+level as you let out your fiercest battle cry.


  1. This is mighty impressive, and I definitely want to try out a few of them. Weapon Master seems like my kind of crazy.

    1. Glad you like it! This is by far my most popular creation, so I'm glad people can find some inspiration from it.

  2. Warlord would be better if it buffed other units.

  3. this is really good! I hope I get the chance to put this in front of my players sometime soon
