Blade of Orien

Nature: Prestige Class

The Blade of Orien is a soldier who uses their Mark of Passage to gain a tactical edge in combat. They're masters of short-range teleportation, and in time can learn to turn the power of their mark against their enemies directly. Many would-be bandits and hijackers who have tried to ply their trades on the lightning rail have found themselves teleported straight from the passenger cart to the cargo cart - and the armed sentries guarding it

Class Features

1.Heir's Mark: Levels in this PrC count as levels in the "Dragonmark heir" PrC when determining the CL for the spell-like abilities of your dragonmark, to max +5 effective "dragonmark levels".

1.Improved Dimension Leap (Ex): "Dimension Leap" is this PrC's signature ability.
●Can use it an additional nr of times per day = (1 + 1/2 class lvl), minimum 1.
Level 1st 2nd 4th 6th 8th 10th
Uses +1/day +2/day +3/day +4/day +5/day +6/day

●Also, when using "dimension leap" you can move in 5 ft increments instead of being limited to 10 ft ones.

2.Quick Leap (Ex): You gain the ability to use "dimension leap" as a Move action,
but when you make such a "quick leap" it reduces your max distance by half.

3.Korran's Strength (Ex): You gain the ability to transport 1 willing Medium or smaller creature when you use "dimension leap".
●A Large target counts as 2 Medium ones, but this can't affect Huge or larger beings.
●All creatures to be transported must be in contact with you upon activation.
●If the target is unwilling this power automatically fails.
Level 6: You can transport 2 creatures. Level 9: Can transport 3 creatures.

4.Orien's Grasp (Sp): You learn to teleport small objects into your waiting hand by expending 1 use of your "dimension leap" power.
●You can target an object that weighs no more than 5 pounds & which is within 25 feet.
●The object must either be carried on your person or in line of sight.
●An object on your person can be teleported as a Swift action that doesn't provoke Attacks of Opportunity.
●Teleporting any other object is a Standard action that does provoke AoO.
●An object held or in use by another creature receives a Will save against this effect (DC 12 + Charisma modifier).

5.Olladra's Twist (Sp): You can expend 1 use of your "dimension leap" ability to swap positions with any 1 Medium or smaller ally, or switch the positions of 2 Medium or smaller allies, who must all be within 30 feet of you.
●If targeted ally is unwilling, the effect automatically fails.
●Activation's a Standard action that provokes AoO from enemies threatening you, but not from foes threatening the targets.

6.Dimensional Push (Sp): You gain the ability to teleport an adjacent willing ally.
●To use this power you expend 1 use of your "dimension leap" power.
●You can move a Medium or smaller creature the same distance you would normally move yourself.
●If used on an unwilling ally, the effect automatically fails.
●The effects of "improved dimension leap" & "quick leap" apply to your use this power.

7.Orien's Wrath (Sp): You gain a truly fearsome power: the ability to teleport your foes.
●To use this power you expend 1 use of your "dimension door" ability.
●You can target a Medium or smaller creature within 10 feet.
●The target gets a Will save to resist (DC 14 +Cha modifier).
●On a failed save, you can teleport that target up to 20 feet in any direction.
●If this would place the target in a solid object, the effect automatically fails.
●Activating this ability is a Full-round action that provokes AoO.

8.Shadow's Shift (Ex): When you use your "dimension leap" or "dimension door" abilities, you no longer provoke AoO.

9.Orien's Cloak (Sp): You can expend 1 use of your "dimension door" ability to use "3.blink" as a spell-like ability,
at the same Caster Level as your other dragonmark powers.

10.Orien's Fury (Ex): When using your "Quick Leap" ability to "dimension leap" as a Move action,
you can make a Full-attack at the end of your leap.
