The Thingomancer

Thingomancers are masters of many things. They are known for their unique ability of pulling things out of a special backpack they crafted themselves. Thingomancers are a peculiar type of spellcaster, causing others to believe they can even cast spells without any material components, even if those materials are expensive. Thingomancers can even craft magical items with ease, pulling resources from gods know where. Not the type to be caught unprepared, thingomancers are expected to have a magical weapon near for any eventuality. Some thingomancers are said to possess mystical powers over rod of wonders and even over the fabled deck of many things. Sadly, many thingomancers are chastised for their chaotic powers and are seen with distrust by many other spellcasters, causing most thingomancers to become hermits, loners and some even have fallen so low, they have become traveling merchants.

Role: Thingomancers can accomplish anything any other spellcaster can, though some are known to even gear up their allies with magical and mundane equipment. The thingomancer always tries to stay as far away from combat as possible, if backed into a corner, most will resort to do something they will later regret. Wizards can easily fall into the purview of thingomancers, having access to many different spells allows them to create many more things. Clerics also enjoy this easy access into thingomancyhood, many being worshipers of chaos and the crafts.

Aligment: Possessing many things and using many things is not a job for the light hearted, neither is possessing partial control over purely chaotic devices. Thus, all thingomancers are chaotic, with chaotic good thingomancers enjoying life as weird adventurers and traveling merchants. Evil thingomancers being masters of trickery, and mischief sometimes cause the death of hundreds, with their hilarious “pranks”. Neutral thingomancers are sometimes regarded as the most dangerous ones, since they are the most unpredictable of the bunch, many times doings things for chaos’ sake.

Starting at 1st level, the thingomncer can craft a special backpack (using the rules for crafting mundane items), this backpack gains all qualities of a type I bag of holding, with the exception that taking an item out only requires a move action, regardless of how many items are in the bag.

Thingomancy (Su): Thingomancers are experts at detecting and using things. Therefore, starting at 1st level, thingomancers add their class level as a bonus to all perception checks made to detect things (a thing is anything not considered a creature, but includes things on creatures and things worn by creatures), they add this bonus as well to all Use Magic Device checks.

Starting at 2nd level, the thingomancer gains eschew materials as a bonus feat. In addition, the thingomancer is always considered to have 2000gp worth of costly material components. The thingomancer can use this ability to pull out a needed costly material component from his thingamajig, up to the gp worth he has available, doing so reduces his maximum gp amount by the cost of the material component he used. The amount of costly material components the thingomancer can use per day increases by 1000gp for every thingomancer level above 2nd. The gp worth the thingomancer possesses refreshes every morning.

Disable Whatsits (Su): Starting at 3rd level, the thingomancer gains a bonus to all disable device check equal to his thingomancer level. In addition, the thingomancer may disable magical devices as well, as long as he has his thingamajig handy.

The weapon lasts for 1 hour, after which then explodes into confetti (alongside any ammunition).

The thingomancer can use this gp pool to reduce the cost of any magic item he crafts, by the amount that he utilizes. The gp pool replenishes itself every week after its last use. The thingomancer must have in his possession his thingamajig to be able to use this ability.
