SPECIAL ABILITIES

+3 bonus on Diplomacy You gain the Alertness feat while your familiar is within arm’s reach.
Area Map: Teluria A geographically relevant map grants a user a +1 circumstance bonus on Survival checks made to navigate in the wilderness. It also can be used to grant the same bonus on Knowledge (dungeoneering) checks made to navigate underground.
Bandages of Rapid Recovery These linen bandages have the same color and softness as the feathers of a dove, but their antiseptic smell suggests a less natural origin. Any creature wrapped in these bandages recovers from wounds and ability damage each day as if receiving complete bed rest regardless of activity (Pathfinder RPG Core Rulebook 191). A creature actually receiving long-term care (from the Heal skill) or complete bed rest while wearing the bandages gains a +4 bonus to its effective level or Hit Dice when determining how many hit points it recovers each day. The bandages are destroyed once removed or when the wearer recovers all hit points and ability damage, whichever comes first.

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, cure light wounds, lesser restoration, stabilize; Cost 100 gp
Cackle Extend the duration of other hexes.
Compass +2 circumstance for Survival or Knowledge (Dungeoneering) to avoid becoming lost.
Deliver Touch Spells Through Familiar (Su) Your familiar can deliver touch spells for you.
Earplugs +2 save vs. hearing effects, -5 hearing-based Perception.
Elven Immunities – Sleep You are immune to Sleep effects.
Empathic Link with Familiar (Su) You have an empathic link with your Arcane Familiar.
Evil Eye -2 (8 round(s)) (DC 17) (Su) Inflict penalties with a glance.
Gunsmithing You know the secrets of repairing and restoring firearms.

Benefit: If you have access to a gunsmith’s kit, you can create and restore firearms, craft bullets, and mix black powder for all types of firearms. You do not need to make a Craft c
Low-Light Vision See twice as far as a human in low light, distinguishing color and detail.
Map Maker’s Kit +2 Circumstance for Survival to avoid becoming lost.
Misfortune (1 round(s)) (DC 17) (Su) Target must take the lower of 2d20 for rolls.
Nightmare Tears Nightmare tears are a toxic alchemical solution that, when applied to the eyes, allows the individual to see past certain supernatural effects, as the spell true seeing. These include reality-warping effects such as those caused by the Plateau of Leng and spells or supernatural powers that create phantasms such as weird, nightmare, and phantasmal killer. The effect of the tears lasts for 1 hour.

Nightmare tears have horrific side effects – users suffer both temporary blindness and insanity. Immediately after applying the tears, the user goes blind for 1d4 rounds and looses 1d4 points of Wisdom until the tears wear off. However, if the user fails a DC 11 Will save, both effects become permanent.
Oil of Silence When applied to a one-handed or two-handed firearm, this strange grayish oil renders that firearm silent for 1 hour. Five vials of oil of silence can be used in conjunction to silence a Large firearm siege engine, and 10 can be used to silence a Huge firearm siege engine. The oil does not work on firearm siege engines that are larger than Huge.

Construction
Requirements Craft Wondrous Item, silence; Cost 125 gp
Pig Grease Maybe it’s the wide heads, but more likely it’s the lack of common sense that causes goblins to so often get stuck in narrow spaces. In such cases, a dose of pig grease is really helpful. An application of pig grease applied to the body grants a +2 circumstance bonus on all Escape Artist checks for 1 hour.

Share Spells with Familiar The wizard may cast a spell with a target of “You” on his familiar (as a touch spell) instead of on himself. A wizard may cast spells on his familiar even if the spells do not normally affect creatures of the familiar’s type (magical beast).
Smoked Goggles +8 save vs. visual effects, -4 sight-based Perception and you treat all opponents as having 20% concealment.
Symptom Kit (10 uses) +5 Disguise to simulate illness.
Valasian Immunities +2 save bonus vs Enchantments.
Valasian Magic +2 racial bonus on caster checks to overcome spell resistance. +2 to spellcraft checks to determine the properties of a magic item.

Bio:

Announcement
Dr. Calliope Smythe’s classes have been cancelled this semester. Her sabbatical has been extended to an unknown date due to circumstances beyond her control.

My name is Calliope Smythe, Doctor Calliope Smythe as my PhD dictates. There is a rumor that I was born on the back steps of the United Terrous University because my father was so caught up in his research it was too late to get my mother to a midwife by the time he was ready to go. Since she left my father, Dr. Marc Smythe, and I soon after, there is a good chance it’s true. Being a good and logical man, my father did what he had for fifty years prior, he taught me everything he knew. When I finished learning all that he sent me to the other University Departments to learn everything they had to offer. So I was born, bred and up until last year I taught a general engineering curriculum at United Terrous University. I am well versed in many different topics my current PhD being in Mechanical Engineering but my Masters and Bachelors span from Pre-Ancient Philosophy to Justice Studies.

I went on Sabbatical at the start of last year with all intentions of doing some field work in my second favored subject. It turned out to be educational but none the less a bad idea. While looking over some early 2000’s preserved media one of my research assistants let out a scream and collapsed. Blood gushed from a wound on their side and then the others started screaming as well. The whole event is very much a blur but I do remember a small voice saying to me, ‘let him in, you have the strength to bind his will once he’s there’. At the time, it had been a cryptic message only made clear when Williams attempted to possess me instead of the Thrush he was currently terrorizing my group with. As the voice had explained, when his will met mine I could pin him to the back of my mind and hold him them. It created a bond between us, I know the emotions and general locations of him at all points in time and he can do the same. To make our lives easier because I would not let him go, Williams offered me new knowledge in exchange for some comforts and spell to allow him speak.

The first few months of having Williams in my head was not an easy time so I did not return to the university. Instead I took up residence outside of town and began learning what Williams had to teach me. It’s very interesting and I’ve already put my latest research into practice….I just hope no one from the University finds me before I have it all under control.

My current degrees include:

PhDs Masters Bachelors
Mechanical Engineering Chemical Engineering Ancient History
Civil Engineering Blank Era History
Electrical Engineering Economics
Justice Studies Historical Theology
Pre-Ancient History Scavenger Era History
Urban Design Theology
Magical Theory
Nautical Theory
Pre-Ancient Philosophy
Sociology
