Nazar, a Pathfinder RPG Base Class in 2 paragraphs + 1 sentence.

Nazar: The nazar is a base class that learns to fight with her helgaze, a psychic assault on the very existence of her enemies using power drawn from the fiendish planes. Though not necessarily evil, nazar are mistrusted for their use of power drawn from the realms of divs and qlippoth. Use hit dice, base attack, base saves, proficiencies, skill points/level, starting wealth, and starting age as a ranger. Use the inquisitor’s class skills. The nazar is a psychic spellcaster that gains spells known and spells per day as a bloodrager of the same level, but drawn from the psychic, sorcerer/wizard, and witch spell lists. However, the nazar can only select rays and spells that make ranged attacks against specific targets and can only cast them against the current target of her helgaze. (A nazar can select a spell that is a touch attack against a single creature, but must do so as a spell one level higher and treats it as having the Reach metamagic.) She uses Charisma to determine spell saves and max spell level.
At 1st level the nazar gains a helgaze, which functions as the mesmerist’s hypnotic stare class feature with the following changes: the penalty can be applies to any one category of saving throw (as determined by the nazar when the ability is used); it is a true gaze attack (and can be avoided as such); it is not a mind-affecting ability; the target receives a saving throw against the helgaze (of the same type it applies a penalty to, DC 10 + 1/2 nazar level + Cha modifier), but this save is made with the helgaze’s penalty; a creature that saves against a nazar’s helgaze can’t be have the same saving throw category affected by that nazar’s helgaze for 24 hours. At 2nd level the nazar gains the painful stare class feature, applied to her helgaze, and treats her nazar level as her mesmerist level for prerequisites relating to hypnotic stare. At 3rd level and every 3 levels thereafter, the nazar gains either a bold stare (though no bold stare can apply a penalty to the same save category the nazar’s helgaze is penalizing) or a stare feat (for which the nazar meets the prerequisites); alternatively the nazar may choose to gain the misfortune hex (which can only be used on the target of her helgaze).
The nazar gains no other class features. #QuickBaseClass
