Mother

Even the psychotic eternal children of Sugarland can grow up on occasion. In the rare instance that a group of sparkle princesses forms, one princess takes on the role of ‘den mother’ for the group. This selfless soul keeps everyone healthy, fed, and generally happy. Far from losing their innate sparkle, these mothers find new and inventive ways to use their joy.

Note: Gender Isn't Everything: Just as there are sparkle princes, it is perfectly possible for this class to become the “Father”. Just replace all feminine nouns with masculine ones.

Mommy Powers: Having to grow up a little and handle more responsibilities, the mother sets aside childish beliefs and faces the world with steadfast resolve. Still, a mother doesn’t let something like reality get in the way of caring for the ones she cares about.

At the beginning of each day she may select 1 of the following mommy powers. These abilities either cost sparkle power or passively improve upon the innate capacity of the class. At 5th level and every 3 levels thereafter a mother can select one additional mommy power per day. These powers and abilities all stem from the ability to warp reality with the power of belief. A mother has access to all the mommy powers of her level or below but once the choice is made at the beginning of the day it cannot be changed for 24 hours.

  • Bottomless Purse (Passive): A mother with this power may stretch space beyond normal reason to store her luggage, and always seems to have the right things on hand. As a result, she may carry unspecified equipment worth up to 100 gp per class level. This can be any kind of gear that can reasonably fit into a purse, including potions and scrolls (but not any other sort of magic item). As a full-round action, the mother may dig through her pockets to retrieve an item she specifies at that time, deducting its value from the allocated amount of cost. This item cannot weigh more than 10 pounds. When the total remaining cost reaches 0, the mother can retrieve no more items until she refills her deep pockets by spending a few hours and an amount of gold to bring her total up to 100 gp per class level.
  • Eyes In The Back Of Her Head (Passive): A mother with this power gains the all-around vision universal monster ability.
  • Kiss It Better (Active): A mother with this power may spend sparkle points to heal another creature with a touch as a standard action. The creature heals 2d6 points of damage per sparkle point spent. A mother cannot spend more than ¼ their level in sparkle points using this ability per use.
  • Mother Bear (Active): A mother with this talent can spend 1 sparkle point to add her Charisma modifier to attack and damage for 1 round. This bonus only applies against a creature that has dealt damage to an ally of the mother within the last round.
  • Mother Knows Best (Passive): A mother with this power adds her Charisma modifier to all Knowledge (in addition to Intelligence) and aid another checks, and adds her Intelligence modifier to all Diplomacy and Intimidate checks in addition to Charisma.
  • “Settle Down Everyone” (Active): A mother with this power can spend 1 sparkle point to cast calm emotions as a spell-like ability. A mother must be at least 5th level to take this mommy power.
  • Special Snowflake Traits: The mother may select one of the following special snowflakes traits in the place of a mommy power: queen of the castle, star of the show, shining star, forced friendship.

This ability replaces special snowflake traits.

Mother’s Little Helper (Sp): At 3rd level, a mother may cast summon monster 1 as a full round action. At 5th level, and every 2 levels thereafter, the power of this ability increases by 1 spell level (to a maximum of summon monster IX at 19th level). However, in order to summon a creature, the mother must expend a spell slot equaling at least ½ the spell level of the desired summon monster spell. Alternatively, the mother may spend an equal number of sparkle points. A mother can only have 1 group of summoned creatures at a time.

This ability replaces atrocities.

Best Mom Ever (Su): At 16th level, once per day as a swift round action a mother can reselect all of her mommy powers. Doing so costs 1 sparkle point.
