Doom Spinner

Prerequisite: Fateweaver, Training in Insight

"Behold and despair, for your death approaches more quickly than you know."

Death and destiny are powerfully entwined, like two sides of the same coin. It is the fate of all mortals to die, and even the gods and angels which ply the Astral Sea are not untouched by the wheel of eternity. To those which have felt the touch of death, and seen the strands of fate, it is a small step to trying to manipulate the fabric of time to make one's own weave. Your first fledgling steps along the path of the Doom Spinner came when you learned to stitch shadows into the threads of fate to weave together events and causes, subtly turning the tapestry of time into your own creation. As you reach the apex of mortal skill you begin to see fate as something both mutable and inevitable; a paradox which you are slowly unraveling as you gain more and more power. Some day perhaps you will spin the weave which dooms the gods themselves…

Path Features

See the Strands (11th level): You can perceive the strands of time and fate which binds the universe together. Once per encounter as a free action you may look into the weave of fate and uncover one of the following pieces of information.
- The current and maximum Hit Points of a single creature you can see.
- The defenses of a single creature you can see.
- The level of a single creature you can see.
- The exact number of hostile creatures currently present in the encounter area.

Weaver's Action (Level 11): When you spend an action point to take an extra action, you may also roll 1d20. Once before the end of the encounter, when an ally or enemy makes an attack roll, skill check, or saving throw, you can replace the result of their roll with yours.

Soul Spinner (Level 16): Once per encounter when a creature you can see starts its turn, you can lose a healing surge to command its fate. You choose one action from the target's normal allotment of actions, and designate how that action is to be used. For example, you could force the target to exchange its standard action for a move action and determine where the target moves. The target is still entitled to a saving throw if you attempt to move it in to hazardous terrain. If you command the target to attack, it can only use basic attacks. You cannot use this feature if you have no healing surges remaining.
