Weather Mage (OGL Prestige Class)

Brenda Cass

The Weather Mage is an arcane spellcaster that has dedicated himself to mastering the art of magically influencing the weather. Storms bolster his arcane strength and his magical aura protects him from their effects. The most powerful Weather Mages are able to change the climate of an area that they are in. We have also posted a couple of sample weather spells of the sort a Weather Mage might have in their repertoire.

Class Features

All the following are Class Features of the Weather Mage prestige class.

 

Weapon and Armor Proficiency
Weather Mages gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor
Spells per Day/Spells Known

When a new Weather Mage level is gained, the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if he had also gained a level in whatever arcane spellcasting class in which he could cast 3rd-level spells before he added the prestige class level. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class in which he could cast 3rd-level spells before he became a Weather Mage, he must decide to which class he adds each level of archmage for the purpose of determining spells per day.

 

Strength of the Storm (Su)
A Weather Mage knows how to draw energy from inclement weather and use it to make his spells more powerful. Weather Mages in inclement weather gain a bonus to their spell caster level as described in the table below:
