Elemental Scion

Class Skills: The elemental scion loses Handle Animal and Knowledge (geography) as class skills and gains Diplomacy and Knowledge (planes) as class skills.

Casting Ability Modifier: The elemental scion uses Charisma as her casting ability modifier.

Elemental Shapeshifter: At first level, the elemental scion gains the Alteration sphere and the Elemental Transformation talent as a bonus magic talents, as well as the Beast Soul drawback.

This drawback does not grant an additional talent and may be bought off as normal. If the elemental scion already possesses the Alteration sphere, then she gains the Elemental Transformation talent without the drawback. If both talents are already possessed, then the elemental scion may choose any Alteration sphere talent as a bonus talent. The elemental scion uses her class level as her caster level for this sphere.

This modifies shapeshifter.

Elemental Adept: The elemental scion may use a lesser form of the Elemental Transformation talent, where the spell point cost is removed, but she does not gain the ability increase from any form. In addition, the air elemental loses its flight speed (but does fall at a rate of 60 ft per round, allowing it to ignore falling damage), the earth elemental form does not gain the earth glide ability, the fire elemental’s burn ability is reduced by one die size, and the water elemental does not gain the vortex ability.

At 6th level, when only affecting herself, the elemental scion reduces the cost of the Elemental Transformation talent by one spell point.

This replaces wild empathy, and the bestial trait gained at 6th level.

Destructive Gift: When the elemental scion is under the effects of Elemental Transformation, she temporarily gains a +1 bonus to her caster level when making a destructive blast modified by any blast type talent from a blast type group associated with her current elemental type, as outlined in the chart below. This bonus increases by an additional +1 at 5th level and every 4 levels thereafter, to a maximum of +5 at 17th level.

Elemental Form Available Blast Type Groups
Air Air, Electric, Thunder
Earth Acid, Crystal, Stone
Fire Fire, Light
Water Cold, Crystal (in the form of ice)

This replaces the quick transformation, steal language, boundless communication, and endless communication class abilities.

Destructive Traits: The elemental scion may take Destruction talents in place of bestial traits.

This modifies bestial traits.
