Cruoromancer (Wizard; Dhampir)

The gadget spec URL could not be found

The cruoromancer is an archetype of the wizard class, available to dhampir wizards.

To those who know how to manipulate it, the blood of a dhampir can be a powerful component to magic. A cruoromancer infuses his necromantic magic with the power of his unique mixture of living blood and undead ichor. As his power increases in this strange arcane art, a cruoromancer finds potent ways to infuse his unique blood with necromancy spells.

Class Features

A cruoromancer has the following class features:

Blood Infusion (Su)

When a cruoromancer casts a spell of the necromancy school, he can opt to infuse that spell with his undead-tainted blood as a swift action. As he increases in level, the power and effects of such infusions become more potent. Each time a cruoromancer uses blood infusion, he drains a portion of his own blood either by cutting himself with a blade or by opening a scab from a previous wound. When he does this, he takes an amount of damage equal to 1d4 + the level of the spell being infused. A cruoromancer can only affect a spell with a single type of blood infusion. At 1st level, he can infuse his necromancy spells in either of the following ways.

Focused Infusion: When the cruoromancer uses this infusion, he adds +1 to the DC of the infused necromancy spell.

Sickening Infusion: When the cruoromancer uses this infusion, any creature damaged by the infused necromancy spell becomes sickened for 1 round.

This ability replaces arcane bond.

Blood Command (Su)

At 5th level, a cruoromancer can control up to 5 Hit Dice worth of undead creatures per caster level instead of the normal 4 Hit Dice of undead when casting the animate dead spell. He also gains the following blood infusion ability.

Commanding Infusion: When using this infusion with animate dead, the cruoromancer can create a number of Hit Dice of undead equal to three times his caster level instead of twice his caster level.

This ability replaces the 5th-level wizard bonus feat.

Blood Desecration (Su)

At 10th level, a cruoromancer gains the following blood infusion.

Desecrating Infusion: When the cruoromancer uses this infusion, he can choose to center a desecrate effect on himself or a single target of the spell modified by this infusion (he chooses upon casting). This effect is like the desecrate spell, but lasts for 1 minute per caster level of the cruoromancer, and does not interact with altars, shrines, or permanent fixtures that boost the desecrate effect.

This ability replaces the 10th-level wizard bonus feat.

Blood Ability (Su)

At 15th level, a cruoromancer can choose to scry through a single undead creature he created with a spell modified by a commanding infusion. The undead creature is treated as if imbued with an arcane eye spell (caster level equal to the cruoromancer's wizard level).

This ability replaces the 15th-level wizard bonus feat.

Perfect Infusion (Su)

At 20th level, a cruoromancer can use his blood infusions without taking damage.

This ability replaces the 20th-level wizard bonus spell*.

Editor's Note

The text states that Perfect Infusion replaces the "20th-level Wizard bonus spell", but it is likely that the intent was to have this ability replace the 20th-level bonus feat.
