Restless Souls Influence

When the death of a very close friend or other loved one threatens to overwhelm a young medium's mind with bereavement, he may find he attracts the interest of many different restless souls who feel a connection to his sorrow, even long after he has come to terms with his loss. Restless souls are incorporeal undead and outsiders that share a jealous affinity for entering the flesh of the living. Their numbers include the allip, bhuta, banshee, dybbuk, shadow demon, ghost, poltergeist, shadow, and wraith. A medium with restless souls influence can call an incorporeal creature whose Challenge Rating is less than or equal to her medium level with her séance ability even if the creature exceeds her Hit Dice limit.

Bonus Language: Choose one of Abyssal, Celestial, or Infernal.

Trance Covenants: frightful violence (1st), death's caress (5th), unnerving aura (9th), power of the possessor (13th), telekinetic might (17th).

Fundamental Influence: At 20th level, the medium gains a permanent touch of incorporeality. She gains a deflection bonus to Armor Class equal to one-quarter her Charisma modifier. She is constantly protected as if by feather fall. She gains a +4 competence bonus on Stealth checks and is not automatically detected by nonvisual senses such as blindsense and tremorsense; creatures with those senses must succeed on a Perception check to notice her. Reduce all damage dealt to the medium by non-incorporeal sources by 1, except for force effects, ghost touch weapons, and other effects that are more effective than normal against incorporeal foes. Once per day, she can make an attack as if it were a touch attack.
