Ok here is another character I'm working on. I really need some help on this one because this looks awkward to me and I don't know how to mechanically make this character real. The lore of this character is based off a race in D&D forth edition known as the gensai, these are half elemental half human beings. The subrace I chose for it was void. This sub race is very evasive skill wise and has some nasty abilities later on. He was also a swordmage, but when I prestige with this character I went full race perks instead of class. So I've been trying to recreate that character with pathfinder. The closest thing I could get was Sorc with the void lineage to eldritch knight, but focusing on more on sorc to show that the character wants to master his lineage. This is the character sheet. His role in D&D was tanky with evasion and Crowd Control.

Odaous Arcadia

Male Sulis

Lvl6 Sorc(void) Lvl1 fighter Lvl1 Eldritch Knight

Str 14
Dex 14
Con 16
Int 14
Wis 10
Cha 16

Feats
Toghness
Arcane Armor&Mastery
Dodge
Combat Expertise
Weapon Focus Longsword


I think you are talking about Genasi. I can't remember if void was a sub-race for any of the elemental ones (I'm thinking it was wind, not sure). Still, some races from PF could fit I think, if you look hard enough.

If you wait for the Advanced Class Guide to come out, there will be a class called Bloodrager, that is a fighty-type of guy who also gets sorcerer bloodlines, and a Magus archetype called Eldritch Scion who is halfway between fighty Bloodrager and casty sorcerer.

I'd advise you to pick from those, simpler than going into Eldritch Knight.

Hmm


The elemental races are Ifrit, Oread, Sylph, and Undine.

The Sulis are a elemental genie slash human hybrid with no elemental restriction unless you choose to have one, also The stats and the races benefits go well with the idea.


I'm not sure what the mechanics and flavor of the void race you talk about is. But if you want otherworldly, stealthy and cool racial based powers that are a bit 'void-like' take a look at the Fetchling. They are a shadow-plane based race, which isn't exactly void but has a similar flavor.

They get a bonus to dex and chr, so a fighty-bard, a fighty-oracle, the new spontaneous casting magus, or the blood rager would all be viable choices to create a 'swordmage'

What race are you referring to?


He's talking about the fetchling


Here is the rules of for the gensai void soul race so I can make this as clear as possible.

They can remove themselves from the board to avoid attacks or move safely with void Assumption: You cease to exist and can take no actions until the start of your next turn. You have line of sight and line of effect to no creature, and no creature has line of sight or line of effect to you. At the start of your next turn, you reappear in the square of your choice within 3 squares of the square you left. You can remove someone from the board temporarily with Glimpse of Void. They don't have to breathe or eat. They have a passive where if the enemy misses you the they take damage equal to a stat. They can create an aura that damages or stuns them. They also have an ability that simply reduces and damage to zero.

In pathfinder they have the sorc void-touched lineage which is a variant of the starsoul lineage. I silence for one round every time I damage with evocation. I can rain down mini black holes onto my enemies as one of my bloodline powers. I don't need to breathe at a certain level. The I can create an ice storm combined with deeper darkness later on.
