Malefactor (Summoner)

The malefactor is a cruel mistress; a terrible taskmaster and spellcaster whose relationship with her sinister eidolon is one borne of intimidation and supernatural coercion. Malefactors blend witchcraft and summoning arts in an otherworldly union of hex and eidolon.

A malefactor has the following class features.

Class Skills: Malefactors add Intimidate to their list of class skills.

Weapon Proficiency: Malefactors are proficient with all simple weapons. Malefactors suffer spell failure when casting arcane spells in armor.

Hex (Ex): A malefactor gains access to the hex ability as a witch. At 1st level, a malefactor gains one hex of her choice. She gains an additional hex at 3rd level and for every 2 levels attained after 3rd level. A witch cannot select an individual hex more than once.

Unless otherwise noted, using a hex is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The save to resist a hex is equal to 10 + 1/2 the malefactor’s level + the malefactor's Charisma modifier.

Beginning at 10th level, a malefactor may choose a greater hex from the witch class' greater hex list that they qualify for instead of a normal hex.
This ability replaces the summoner’s summon monster and gate class abilities.

Fearsome Taskmaster (Ex): At 4th level, whenever the malefactor’s eidolon is within the summoner’s reach, the eidolon gains a +2 morale bonus on weapon damage rolls and on Will saving throws against fear effects. Furthermore, a malefactor’s eidolon is immune to extraordinary (Ex) fear effects as long as the eidolon is within 100 feet of the malefactor and can see and hear him.
This ability replaces shield ally.

Channel Hex (Su): At 6th level a malefactor's eidolon may channel the power of the malefactor's hex class ability through themselves. While within 100' the malefactor's eidolon gains access to the malefactor's known hexes and may use them as if they were the malefactor, using the malefactor's save DCs and other modifiers.
This ability replaces maker's call.
