Class Features
Text
  • Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Thresholders are proficient with all simple weapons and light armour, as well as all shields (except tower). Thresholders suffer spell failure in armour above light.
  • Thickened Reality (Ex): Choose shadows, gaps, or phantasms. When bringing into being, you may increase (or decrease, as desired) the reality of that type of threshold by 10%. This stacks with other benefits.
  • Improved Thickened Reality (Ex): Choose shadows, gaps, or phantasms. When bringing into being, you may increase (or decrease, as desired) the reality of that type of threshold by 10%. This stacks with other benefits.
  • Greater Thickened Reality (Ex): Choose shadows, gaps, or phantasms. When bringing into being, you may increase (or decrease, as desired) the reality of that type of threshold by 10%. This stacks with other benefits.
  • Existence Warp (Ex): You may apply a single +1 action increase threshold without paying the extra action cost.
  • Greater Existence Warp (Ex): You may apply a total of +2 action increases to a threshold without paying the extra action cost.
  • Beyond and Between (Su): A thresholder knows not only how to create magic from the interstices of the world, but also how to force himself into those cracks. Any of the following abilities can be activated as a move action, and cancelled as a move action. Duration is permanent until cancelled. See the table for which levels these are gained at.
    • Of Two Minds: The thresholder splits himself into two parts, neither quite as capable as the whole. When entering combat, you roll initiative twice. Once you know the results of your initiative roll, you designate one roll for your standard action, and one for your move action. You take your standard action on the init designated for it, and your move action on the init designated for it. You may not take full round actions. When you enter this ability, you must designate whether your swift action is paired with your move or your standard action. You may only use it on that initiative. If you enter this ability during combat, roll a second initiative and follow the procedure above. If you end this ability during combat, you take your whole turn on the lower of your two initiatives. 
    • Forked Life: Shifting some of his physical reality into a separate realm, the thresholder ignores much of the material world. He takes only 50% damage from any attacks, but can only use either a standard or a move action each turn.
    • Thoughts Asunder: By splitting his mind, he shrugs off much of attacks that would otherwise plague him. All spells, abilities, and effects that target the Thresholder and require Will saves have a 50% chance of failure (before the save or spell resistance). However, all of his mental ability modifiers are reduced by 50%, and he loses all access to the highest level of thresholds he knows.
    • Betwixt the Spells: Magic, too, can be put through the whims of the thresholder. All spells and spell-likes (and similar abilities like powers, necros, spellsong, etc.) have a 50% chance of not affecting the thresholder. However, all of his thresholds increase their casting action by one step (swift -> move, move -> standard, standard -> full round, etc.).
    • Upon a Crowned Head: A threshold can, of course, twist reality in another direction. All thresholds decrease their casting action by one step (full round -> standard, standard -> move, move -> swift, etc.). However, the thresholder takes double damage from all attacks.
