Combat

In combat, an orangeseer tries to stay out of melee, using his psionics to blast his foes. If the fight begins to go against him, the orangeseer grabs what orangespice it can and uses dimension door or plane shift to escape.

Psionics (Sp): At will - augury, divination, guidance; 3/day - commune, dimension door, touch of idiocy; 1/day - charm person (DC 13), daze monster (DC 14), greater scrying (DC 19), hold person (DC 15), plane shift (DC 19), suggestion (DC 15). Caster level 13th. The save DCs are Charisma-based.

Future Sight (Su): An orangeseer constantly sees several possible futures simultaneous with its view of the present. This ability grants the orangeseer a dodge bonus to Armor Class and an insight bonus on Initiative rolls equal to its Intelligence modifier (usually +8).

Immunities: Orangeseers are immune to mind-affecting effects, disease, and poison.

Orangespice Dependence (Ex): An orangeseer must use orangespice hourly. Because of its extreme reliance on orangespice, it automatically fails all Fortitude saves related to orangespice.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): An orangeseer retains its Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) and any dodge bonuses to AC even if caught flat-footed or attacked by an invisible creature.
