Nefarious Convoker (Summoner/Antipaladin)

Among the ranks of summoners are those who focus on outsiders from the lower planes, all of whom are strong-willed, dangerous, and evil. The hierarchy of the lower planes consists of those who rule, and those who are ruled–from the great demon lords and powerful archdevils, down to the lowliest of fiends who serve as minions, food, and fodder. It is from among the lowest ranks of demons, daemons, and devils that the fiend-touched nefarious convoker focuses his summonings. Through manipulation and a promise of greater strength and power, the nefarious convoker binds these minor fiends to his service–an opportunity that they cannot afford to refuse. In return for their rise in power, these fiends serve the nefarious convoker as protectors, informants, and tools through which to carry out his devious plans or perform brutal tasks to further his sphere and influence.

Secondary Class: Antipaladin.

Alignment: Any evil.

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The nefarious convoker may select three antipaladin skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal summoner class skills. The nefarious convoker gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 2 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The nefarious convoker is proficient with all simple and martial weapons. The nefarious convoker is also proficient with light armor. A nefarious convoker can cast arcane spells while wearing light armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a nefarious convoker wearing medium or heavy armor, or using a shield, incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass nefarious convoker still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Spellcasting: The nefarious convoker casts arcane spells drawn from both the summoner and antipaladin spell list. The nefarious convoker otherwise learns and casts spells as a summoner equal to his nefarious convoker level.
