Class Features

The awakener has all the standard occultist’s class features, except as noted below.

Awaken Item (Ex)

At 8th level, the awakener can exchange one of his implements for another implement of the same school when he prepares spells. The object that is to become an implement must have a history known by the awakener, and the spells chosen for the object should in some way reflect this history. This allows the awakener to re-select the spells and implement powers tied to the implement. Spell selection is the player's responsibility, but in blatant cases the GM may exchange a spell or power that does not fit the theme for another. If an awakener re-attunes a previous implement, that implement continues to hold the same spells and powers it used to, plus new ones if the awakener has learned to cast new levels of spells since the last use. Awaken item replaces outside contact.

Object Possession (Sp)

At 8th level, the awakener can use object possessionOA (sp) at will. At level 12, this becomes greater object possessionOA. At 16th level, the awakener can possess a Colossal object. This replaces magic circles and fast circles.

Animate Objects (Sp)

At 12th level, the awakener can use animate objects (sp) at the cost of one point of mental focus. This point can be spent from any implement or from generic mental focus. Animate objects replaces binding circles.
