Old Companion Feats

Companion feats can be taken either by a Conjuration sphere companion or by a caster with the Conjuration sphere. If taken by the caster, the feat only applies to a single companion that qualifies for it, but may be taken multiple times. The feat may not be reassigned to a different companion for as long as the chosen companion is in your service. The effects do not stack unless noted, each time one is taken it applies to a different companion. If taken by a companion, they may only be taken once unless noted. Any caster level prerequisite must be met by the caster.

Armory [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Battle Creature.

Benefit: A companion that possesses the Battle Creature (form) talent appears with one additional weapon, +1 per 4 caster levels.

Companion Concentration [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere.

Benefit: When you choose to concentrate on a sphere effect, as a swift action you may pass concentration on that sphere effect to your companion within close range (based on your Conjuration sphere caster level). You must have line of effect to the companion to do so. As long as the companion remains within close range, you may resume concentrating on the effect at any time as a swift action. A companion may not concentrate to maintain the effect that summoned it, nor on any effect to which it lacks line of effect. If the companion leaves close range, it may continue to concentrate on the effect, but you may not resume concentrating on it yourself. A mindless companion may not assume concentration of a sphere effect. Treat the companion’s Hit Dice as levels in a caster class for determining its bonus on concentration checks. If the companion does not have a casting ability modifier, use its Charisma to determine its concentration check bonus.

Hungry [Combat, Companion]

Prerequisites: Ravenous Companion, 10th caster level or higher.

Benefit: When your companion is grappling a creature, it may attempt to use its swallow whole ability as a free action. It gains a +2 competence bonus to CMB and CMD to make and resist grapple checks relating to the swallow whole ability.

Manifestation [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Shadow Creature.

Benefit: Your companion may manifest itself as a move action. While manifested, your companion takes full damage from attacks and magic originating from corporeal creatures and deals full damage with its attacks and magic against corporeal creatures. This does not affect your companion’s ability to deal damage to and receive damage from incorporeal creatures. Your companion may end this effect as a move action.

Variable Armaments [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Battle Creature or Shield Bearer, companion with 6 Hit Dice or greater.

Benefit: A companion that possesses Battle Creature or Shield Bearer may substitute the enhancement bonus to its weapon and shields granted by those talents for weapon special abilities available per the armorist bound equipment table. The weapon or shield must maintain at least a +1 enhancement bonus. Changing the selected special abilities requires an 8 hour ritual.

Variable Size [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Altered Size.

Benefit: As a standard action, you may suppress your companion’s Altered Size talent and Greater Altered Size advanced talent. The talent remains suppressed until you end this effect as a free action. Your companion must be within close range to begin or end this effect.

Venomous Blood [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Monstrous Attacks with poison option.

Benefit: Any creature that confirms a critical hit against your companion with a piercing or slashing melee weapon is sprayed with its poison (treat the poison as a contact poison for this application). Melee weapons with reach don’t endanger their users in this way.

Additionally, your companion can apply its poison to a weapon or natural attack by dipping it in its own blood as a swift action. This requires dealing 1d4 damage to itself as part of the swift action unless the companion suffers from an ongoing bleed effect or is below half its maximum hit points.

Venomous Focus [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Monstrous Attacks with poison option.

Benefit: Your companion gains a +1 bonus to the DC of its poison, increasing by +1 at 5 Hit Dice and every 5 Hit Dice thereafter, and the cure now requires an additional save.

Venomous Spit [Combat, Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Monstrous Attacks with poison option.

Benefit: Your companion may spit its poison as a ranged touch attack with a range of 20 feet. Treat the poison as a contact poison for this feat.

Watchful Companion [Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Greater Summoning, Lingering Companion.

Benefit: When summoned for 1 day, your companion does not disappear when you rest to regain spell points. When the 1 day duration is complete, you may pay the summoning cost again to renew the duration of the summon without your companion disappearing. Your companion may choose to wake you up as a free action as long as it is within long range.

Web Mastery [Combat, Companion]

Prerequisites: Conjuration sphere, Web Spinner.

Benefit: Your companion may use its web ability a number of times per minute equal to its Constitution modifier.

Additionally, as a full-round action, your companion may render a creature that is entangled by its web and within its reach helpless. Such a creature counts as being tied up, increasing the DC to escape to 20 + 1/2 of the companion’s Hit Dice + Constitution modifier. The helpless creature may still attempt Strength and Escape Artist checks to free themselves as normal.
