Description Edit

The thaumaturgist is a prestige class for clerics and cleric/mages who are interested in pacts with beings from other planes of existence. Depending on the alignment and intent of the thaumaturgist, the beings which the thaumaturgist summons may be demons, devils, angels, or eladrin. The nature of the relationship between thaumaturgist and planar creature may also vary depending on the duties the thaumaturgist wishes the planar creature to perform, which may range between a long term quest down to assisting in a particularly difficult fight.

Of particular interest about the thaumaturgist is the fact that they oftentimes form a longterm relationship with a specific summoned fiend or celestial, which is called a "planar cohort." This relationship is chiefly dependent on the thaumaturgist and his planar cohort sharing the same basic goals and motivations. Should this situation change, the planar cohort isn't obliged to remain on the Prime Material Plane.
