Class Features - Sorcerer:
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Sorcerers are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor interferes with a sorcerer's gestures, which can cause her spells with somatic components to fail (see Arcane Spells and Armor).
Class Skill: Heal.
Bonus Spells: bless (3rd), resist energy (5th), magic circle against evil (7th), remove curse (9th), flame strike (11th), greater dispel magic (13th), banishment (15th), sunburst (17th), gate (19th).
Bonus Feats: Dodge, Extend Spell, Iron Will, Mobility, Mounted Combat, Ride-By Attack, Skill Focus (Knowledge [religion]), Weapon Finesse.
Bloodline Arcana: Unlike most sorcerers whose innate magic is powered by force of personality, you use pure willpower to master and fuel your magic. You use your Wisdom, rather than your Charisma, to determine all class features and effects relating to your sorcerer class, such as bonus spells per day, maximum spell level you can cast, and the save DCs of your spells. You gain a +2 bonus on all Heal and Knowledge (religion) checks.
Heavenly Fire: Starting at 1st level, you can unleash a ray of heavenly fire as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. Against evil creatures, this ray deals 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. This damage is divine and not subject to energy resistance or immunity. This ray heals good creatures of 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. A good creature cannot benefit from your heavenly fire more than once per day. Neutral creatures are neither harmed nor healed by this effect. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier. (Current: 7 times per day, 1d4+2)
Celestial Resistances: At 3rd level, you gain resist acid 5 and resist cold 5. At 9th level, your resistances increase to 10.
Favored Class - Sorcerer:
Racial Features - Aasimar (Archon-Blooded):
Ability Modifiers: +2 Constitution, +2 Wisdom
Medium: Aasimars are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Normal Speed: Aasimars have a base speed of 30 feet.
Darkvision: Aasimars can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Skill Modifiers: Lawbringers have a +2 racial bonus on Intimidate and Sense Motive checks.
Languages: Aasimars begin play speaking Common. Aasimars with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following languages: Celestial, Draconic, Dwarven, Elven, Gnome, Halfling, and Sylvan.
Deathless Spirit (Alternate Racial Trait): Particularly strong-willed aasimars possess celestial spirits capable of resisting the powers of death. They gain resistance 5 against negative energy damage. They do not lose hit points when they gain a negative level, and they gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against death effects, energy drain, negative energy, and spells or spell-like abilities of the necromancy school. This racial trait replaces celestial resistance.
Incorruptible (Alternate Racial Trait): Occasionally, aasimars arise with the ability to further ward away evil. Aasimars with this racial trait can cast corruption resistance against evil once per day as a spell-like ability. If an aasimar uses this ability on herself, the duration increases to 1 hour per level. This racial trait replaces the spell-like ability racial trait.
Scion of Humanity (Alternate Racial Trait): Some aasimars’ heavenly ancestry is extremely distant. An aasimar with this racial trait counts as an outsider (native) and a humanoid (human) for any effect related to race, including feat prerequisites and spells that affect humanoids. She can pass for human without using the Disguise skill. This racial trait replaces the Celestial language and alters the native subtype.

Eunomia Verto entered the room and saluted sharply. ”You asked to see me, sir?”
Commander Achille Parsall smiled faintly. ”Greetings, soldier. I’d like you to accompany me on a patrol around the city.”
”Of course, sir. Whenever you would like to leave.”
Working in silence the two gathered weapons and saddled horses. From the corner of her eye Eunomia could see Commander Parsall give a slight sigh of relief as soon as they were outside the city gates, his shoulders slumping slightly as if he’d been relieved of a great burden.
In a way he had been. That was the whole point of this little ritual. Inside the city, Commander Parsall’s word was law. Outside of it, Achille could relax and enjoy a slow ride in the sunshine with a friend. A strange friend, perhaps, given that she was nearly 30 years his junior. But they’d worked together, and fought together, and trusted each other’s judgment. Out here, they were equals.
Today, though, it seemed there was more on his mind than relaxation. ”Have you heard the latest rumors from the north?”
Eunomia frowned. ”I don’t think so. Nothing unusual anyway, just typical Mivon politics.”
”A bit further than that, in the Stolen Lands. Apparently a small group has been killing bandits in the area. Rumor has it they’re trying to start a colony.”
”That...sounds like what we’ve done here. Or are trying to do, anyway.”
In the River Kingdoms nations rose and fell on a daily basis. Liberthane had survived as long as it had only because of Achille’s sheer force of will. Still, over 20 years since its founding, they were more a town than a nation. Liberthane had a solidly-built fort, disciplined soldiers, a few farmers and their families...and very little else.
Looking around at those farms, Eunomia remembered what a relief it had been when she first came here as a child. A rare place where there were laws equally enforced for all citizens. A small bastion of peace in a chaotic world. It was what had drawn her parents here. What had drawn them all here, really. But while Liberthane was stable, it had never been able to grow.
”Do you think they can do it? Actually create a successful colony?”
”I don’t know.” Achille smiled wryly. ”Although it seems they have outside support, which is more than we ever had. Brevoy’s apparently grown tired of the chaos on her southern border.”
”What are you thinking?’
He sighed. ”I’m thinking that I’m getting old, Ver, and I’m afraid everything I’ve worked for is going to mean nothing. We’re too small and well-defended for the larger nations like Mivon to bother with, but that sword cuts both ways. They won’t ally with us either. Eventually, someone is going to decide we’re worth attacking.
So I have a favor to ask of you. And it is a favor, not an order. I would like you to go north. Find out what these people are up to. See what they’re like; you’re the best judge of character I know. Are they bandits with delusions of grandeur? Or could they be something more?
If it’s the former, well, hopefully they’ll be too far away to ever set their sights on Liberthane. If it’s the latter…”
He brought his horse up next to hers, staring into her eyes with an intensity that she rarely saw from him outside of battle.
”If it’s the latter, Ver, I want you to join them. Help them. I dreamed once of uniting the River Kingdoms. Bringing liberty to all these lands, not just a tiny fraction. Maybe you could actually accomplish it. Or at the very least, forge an alliance with people who would prefer not to see Liberthane fall.”
Eunomia was shaken. She looked around again at the small hamlet that was the only home she’d ever known. To leave it behind was more than the commander would have ever asked of her. Of anyone.
But her friend had asked her for help.
She reached out and took his hand, as awkward as the gesture was on horseback. ”Of course. I’ll see who these people are. If they can be trusted. Not just for Liberthane.” She smiled. ”But for all people who want nothing more than a chance to live in peace.”
