Class Features

All of the following are class features of the sky lord.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Sky lords are proficient with all simple weapons plus 2 additional weapon of their choice. Sky lords are also proficient with light and medium armor. They are not proficient with shields.

Azure Bolt [elemental bolt] (Su): Sky lords are capable of producing a bolt that deals either air or electricity damage. The azure bolt deals up to the amount of damage listed on Table: Sky lord. The azure bolt has a range of up to 10 feet per sky lord class level and requires a Ranged Attack roll to strike the target. Only a single azure bolt may be fired per round but the sky lord may divide the damage dice up into multiple azure bolts if they are able to make more than one attack per round—such as due to a high enough Base Attack Bonus, use of the haste spell, or some other means—. It is a standard action to fire a single azure bolt or a full attack action to fire multiple azure bolts. An azure bolt is usable at-will.

Air Bolt: When the sky lord uses their azure bolt to produce a bolt of air, the attack deals either bludgeoning, piercing, or slashing damage—chosen at the time the azure bolt is used—.

Electricity Bolt: This version of the azure bolt deals pure electricity damage to it's targets.

Air & Electricity Resistance (Ex): A sky lords possesses air & electricity resistance 10 +1 per sky lord level.

Elemental Essences: Elemental essences are a measure of how much elemental power a sky lord possesses, the number of elemental essences possessed by a sky lord determines how often they can use some of their abilities. The elemental essences possessed by a sky lord are composed of Air and Electricity essences. Elemental essences are restored after 8 hours of uninterrupted rest. Sky lords gain a number of bonus elemental essences depending on their sky lord level and their Constitution score (see Table: Bonus Elemental Essences by Sky Lord Level & Constitution Score).

Spells: The sky lord possesses an extremely limited number of spells known (see Table: Sky Lord) that they can cast by using their elemental essences. A sky lords spells follow all the rules of normal spellcasting.

The save DC for a sky lord's spells is DC 10 + Spell Level + Constitution modifier. For a list of spells that a sky lord can learn see Sky Lord Spell List

Evasion: The sky lord gains evasion. If exposed to any effect that normally allows them to attempt a Reflex saving throw for half damage, the sky lord takes no damage with a successful saving throw. The evasion ability can only be used if the sky lord is wearing light armor or no armor.

Feather Falling (Su): The sky lord is under a constant feather fall effect. This ability can be suppressed and activated at-will as a free action by the sky lord. At the sky lords option they may share their feather falling ability with creatures within a 5 ft radius per sky lord level, this effects up to 1 creature per sky lord level within range.

Storm Vision (Ex): The sky lord can see perfectly in stormy and fog-like conditions and does not suffer any penalties to Perception checks due to stormy weather or fog.

Cloud Walking (Su): A sky lord can tread on clouds and fog as though on solid ground. This ability requires Feather Falling (Su).

Flight (Ex): The sky lord can fly at a speed equal to twice their base land speed with perfect manoeuvrability.

Air & Electricity Subtypes (Ex): The sky lord gains the air and electricity subtypes. This grants them immunity to air and electricity. The electricity subtype also makes the sky lord vulnerable to earth based effects, they take +50% again as much damage from abilities with the earth type regardless of if a successful save is made or not. The immunity to air makes the sky lord unaffected by strong winds and similar environmental effects caused by wind.

Azure Aura (Su): The sky lords azure aura now deals 2d6 points of damage of the appropriate type out to 10 feet.

Sky Lord: The elemental energy flowing through the sky lords body has transformed them into an elemental being, the sky lord gains the following benefits:
