Sleep Researcher

Source Starfinder #47: Nightmare Scenario pg. 45
For the scientifically minded, the study of sleep processes is a nonmagical way to connect with Desna. Some sleep researchers are medical doctors working in sleep centers with a focus on the science of sleep, particularly the REM cycle; others combine mysticism and psychology to analyze and interpret dreams. Though the two types of dream researchers rarely agree when it comes to their methods and conclusions, they have a similar goal of improving the lives of others by unlocking the mysteries of sleep.

Alternate Class Features

This archetype grants optional alternate class features at 2nd and 4th levels.

Sleep Protocol (Ex) - 2nd Level

You’ve developed your own sleep protocol in your clinic or laboratory. Once per day when not in combat, you can activate the protocol, lulling all creatures that can perceive you to sleep for a number of minutes equal to your character level. These creatures must succeed at a Will save equal to 10 + your level + your Intelligence modifier or fall asleep. While asleep, they can’t be woken by normal noise. You can choose to exclude a number of creatures equal to your Intelligence modifier from being affected. You can’t use this ability again until you spend 1 Resolve Point to regain Stamina Points after a 10-minute rest.

Restorative Slumber (Ex) - 4th Level

Before taking a full night’s rest, you can designate one ally to be the recipient of your restorative slumber. They must spend 8 hours of uninterrupted sleep to gain the benefits of restorative slumber, healing a number of Hit Points equal to twice your character level instead of their normal amount. One minor condition is removed by the restorative slumber as per lesser remove condition. You can remove a single disease or poison, as per remove affliction, using your character level for the caster level check.
