Alternative Class Feature
Third Hook Sorceress
As a member of the elite of the kommissariat tasked with safeguarding the constant flow of PHE, the Third Hook Sorceress has direct access to the sources of protocol energy.
This class features replaces the Advanced Training class feature normally gained by Red Fleet Sorceresses.
Starting on 4th level, the Third Hook Sorceress may kast a protocol to overkast grade I once per round without taking constitution damage, provided that she has deactivated her KPS safety wards and that at least one of her allies was killed and transformed into a shade in the same or the previous round. The shade of her ally is inrevocably destroyed by the use of this class feature.
At 8th level, the sorceress may kast a protocol to overkast grade II without suffering constitution damage, provided she has deactivated her KPS safety wards and that at least four of her allies were killed and transformed into shades in the same or the previous round (the shades are destroyed through the use of this class feature). At 12th level, the maximum overkast grade is III (requiring nine dead allies/shades), at 16th level, it is IV (16 dead allies/shades), and at 20th level it is V (25 dead allies/shades).
High-ranking Third Hook Sorceresses gain additional privileges for accessing PHE from special Third Hook reserves.
Prerequisites: Third Hook Sorceress, rank Sorceress-Major or higher
Effect: The shades of any allies with the feat Unknown Soldier who die within line of sight of the sorceress are automatically placed in a bond to the sorceress. She may use these shades in her special class feature even if they did not come into existence in the same or the previous round.
Normal: A sorceress may not place shades into bonds and the Third Hook Sorceress class feature may only be used with shades which came into existence in the same or the previous round.
The Third Hook not only maintains the soul prisons but also special penal units within the Red Fleet (though these are not officially designated as being run by the Third Hook). The soldiers in these units are subjected to a brutally abusive “training” with the sole aim of breaking them so completely, that their souls will be especially easy to control and process after their death.
Effect: The character becomes a shade after death. A Third Hook Sorceress can use her special class feature even though her KPS safety wards are engaged if she uses the shade of at least one Unknown Soldier.
Normal: Characters may become shades or immortals after death. Third Hook Sorceresses may use their special class feature only with deactived KPS safety wards.
