Thaumaturge (Pactmaker Archetype)

Occult Reservoir (Su): A thaumaturge has an innate pool of occult energy that she can draw upon to fuel her occult exploits and enhance her spirits’ granted abilities. Each day, after sealing her first pact with a spirit, the thaumaturge’s occult reservoir fills with raw spiritual energy, gaining a number of points equal to 3 + 1/2 her pactmaker level. Any points she had from the previous day are lost.

Points from the thaumaturge’s occult reservoir are used to fuel many of the thaumaturge’s occult powers. In addition, the thaumaturge can expend 1 point from her occult reservoir as a free action whenever she uses a granted ability. If she does, she can choose to increase the binder level by 1 or increase the spell’s DC by 1. She can expend no more than 1 point from her reservoir on a given granted ability in this way.

This ability replaces constellation aspects and the pactmaker’s 1st-level binder secret.

Exploits: Beginning at 3rd level and every three levels thereafter, a thaumaturge gains one of the following arcanist exploits: acid jetACG, arcane barrierACG, dimensional slideACG, energy shieldACG, flame arcACG, force strikeACG, ice missilesACG, item craftingACG, lightning lanceACG, occult backlash†, occult disruption†, see the occult† or spell resistance. Use the pactmaker’s level as her effective arcanist level when using her exploits.

At 12th level, she adds the following arcanist exploits to the list of those that she may select: burning flameACG, dancing electricityACG, energy absorptionACG, greater spell resistanceACG, icy tombACG, lingering acidACG, occult dissonance†, and redirect spellACG.

This ability replaces pact augmentation.
