Who controls the past, controls the future. Who controls the wishes, controls the past.

Djinn, Efreet, Marid, Dao… these are the names that inspire terror and greed throughout the planes, and with good reason. These Genies are far more powerful than the other denizens of the Elemental Sultanates, and it is for this reason that they rule them. They control the wishes, and for many they may as well control the universe.

The Genies are universally accomplished, but this doesn't make them more powerful at any particular level than any other character. Indeed, level is a measure of power. The most powerful denizens of the Elemental Planes are Genies and higher level than mere elementals. The Genie advances in everything all at once, and thus gains new abilities relatively slowly compared to what other, more focused Outsider progressions are capable of.

Making a Genie[edit]

Races: The Genie is only available to Outsiders with a plane of origin in the Elemental Planes. Creatures from the prime material plane whose ancestors were from an Elemental Plane may take this class, but they must have the Outsider type.

Alignment: While the Elemental Planes are Neutral, the denizens often are not. Genies can be of any alignment and often are.

Starting Gold: 6d6×10 gp (210 gp).

Starting Age: Since a Genie is immortal and never ages, a character may claim any starting age she wishes.

Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Genie.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Genies are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, as well as the whip, the net, and the lajatang. Genies are proficient with light armor but not with shields of any kind.

Immortality (Ex): Ageless as the earth and endless as the sky, the True Genie never ages and retains a youthful appearance unto a thousand thousand generations.

Planar Traits: A Genie is a member of one of the iconic aristocracies of the Elemental Conflux. Starting at first level she may travel on any elemental plane without suffering the baleful effects of those extreme environments. In addition she gains access to the distinctive abilities of her race, as befits her plane of origin:

  • Fire: Efreet Traits:
Heat (Ex): Any time an Efreet hits an opponent with a melee attack or she is struck with a natural weapon she inflicts her Constitution Modifier in Fire Damage in addition to whatever else she does. This ability may be suppressed as a standard action and resumed as a Swift action.
Immunity to Fire: An Efreet takes no damage from Fire of any kind.
  • Air: Djinn Traits:
Air Mastery (Ex): Airborne creatures suffer a -1 penalty to attack and damage rolls against a djinn.
Immunity to Acid: A Djinn takes no damage from Acid of any kind.
  • Water: Marid Traits:
Water Mastery (Ex): A Marid gains a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls against opponents touching water.
Water Breathing (Ex): A Marid benefits as per water breathing, but non-magical and all the time.
Immunity to Cold: A Marid takes no damage from Cold of any kind.
  • Earth: Dao Traits:
Earth Mastery (Ex): A Dao recieves a +1 bonus to attack and damage rolls if both it and its opponent are touching the ground.
Immunity to Electricity: A Dao takes no damage from Electricity of any kind.

Telepathy (Su): At 2nd level, a Genie gains the ability to communicate telepathically with any creature that speaks a language within 100 feet.

Genie Powers (Sp): At 2nd level, a Genie may cast create food and water once per day. At 3rd level, the Genie can plane shift at will. The only planes which can be accessed in this manner are the Elemental planes and the Prime Material Plane. Only willing creatures may be transported. At 7th level, a Genie may cast major creation 3 times per day. Any objects created which last more than 12 hours are permanent.

Sphere: The Genie gains basic access to a sphere at 4th level, and gains a new sphere at every fourth level afterward. If the Genie selects a sphere that she already has basic access to, she upgrades it to advanced access. If she already had advanced access, she gains expert access.

Sphere of Restoration: Basic: The Genie can use the sphere of restoration to heal a single target for 2d4 HP once per encounter Advanced: The genie can use the sphere to heal up to three members of the party for 2d4 HP. If used on a single target, it becomes 2d6 and they gain an 8HP protective shield for 1d3 rounds or until depleted. Expert: The genie can, once per day, in addition to the other affects of advanced, heal the entire party for 2d8 HP, regardless of consciouness, status effects, or even if they are dead. Dead players only receive half the healing and are put into negatives and require stabalization.

Sphere of Destruction Basic: 2d4 damage of type same as the Genie's plane of origin to a single target. Advanced: 4d4 damage in a 15' circle for 1d3 rounds as damage same as Genie's plane of origin. Expert: Deal poison damage to one target (Kills, Fortitude save allows target to take 3d6 instead)

Sphere of Protection Basic: Give +2AC to either yourself or an ally for one encounter. Advanced: Give a +4AC to your entire party for 1d3 rounds. Expert: Givve +4AC and +3 to all saves for entire party for 1d4 rounds.

Sphere of Control Basic: Stun a target for 1d3 rounds once per encounter. Advanced: Control the mind of a target for 1d4 rounds (will save 10+character level+genie's WIS modifier) Expert: Reduce the HP of a target by 45% (fortitude save 10+1/2 character level+Genie's WIS modifier)

Greater Planar Traits: A Genie of 5th level or more gains access to more of the distinctive abilities of her race, as befits her plane of origin:

  • Fire: Efreet Traits:
Size Changing (Sp): An Efreet can change a creature's size up or down one size category for an hour, and can do this twice per day. This can be used offensively, and the save DC is Charisma based. This is a 2nd level spell.
Start Fires (Su): An Efreet can set anything she can see on fire as a standard action.
  • Air: Djinn Traits:
Whirlwind (Ex): A Djinn can assume the form of a whirlwind, as described in the Air Elemental description.
Gust of Wind (Sp): A Djinn can use gust of wind at will.
  • Water: Marid Traits:
Drench (Ex): A Marid can extinguish normal or magical fires with a touch. This always works.
Resistances: A Marid has Sonic, Fire, and Acid Resistance 10.
  • Earth: Dao Traits:
Earth Glide: At 5th level, a Dao is able to move through solid stone as if it were open space. She may take any non-living objects she can carry with her.

Summon (Sp): At 9th level, a Genie can attempt to summon vassals and others of its kind (for example: a Djinn could summon other denizens of the planes of Air). Summoning another creature of the same character level has a 40% chance of success, and summoning a creature of a lower level increases the chances of success by 10% for every level the summoner's level exceeds the CR of the target.

Grant Wishes (Sp): At 11th level, a Genie becomes a steward of the wish economy. She may grant up to three mortal wishes each day. Doing so takes a few minutes to word the wish properly and any costs are paid by the recipient (remember that many wishes do not have a special cost, as per the Tome of Fiends).

Damage Reduction (Su): A 13th level Genie has Damage Reduction of Level/Adamantine. At 19th level this becomes DR of Level/Epic.

Awesome Planar Traits: A Genie of 14th level or more gains access to more of the distinctive abilities of her race, as befits her plane of origin:

  • Fire: Efreet Traits:
Fire Storm (Sp): An Efreet can use fire storm at will.
  • Air: Djinn Traits:
Telekinesis (Sp): A Djinn can use telekinesis at will.
  • Water: Marid Traits:
Acid Fog (Sp): A Marid may use acid fog once per hour.
  • Earth: Dao Traits:
Transmute Rock and Mud (Sp): A Dao can use transmute rock to mud and transmute mud to rock at will.

Greater Summoning: A Genie of 15th level may attempt to use her summon power to summon a creature of a level higher than her own, though doing so carries only a 30% chance of success.

Elemental Power: The powers of the lower planes are awesome to behold. At 17th level, the True Fiend gains a +10 bonus to defeating Spell Resistance with the spell-like abilities granted by her spheres.

Gate (Sp): At 18th level, a Genie can open a gate (transport version) whenever she wants.
