The planes of Eberron whirl in endless motion through the Astral Plane, drawing near and moving far from the Material Plane and sending their influence like tides upon the world. To one who understands the motions of the planes, near and far mean nothing—if you know exactly where to reach, you can tap into the power of the planes wherever they are in their cyclical wanderings.
Some people have this power thrust upon them, without their consent. These spellcasters have much in common with witches, but whereas witches may not know the source of their powers and abilities, these manifest spellshapers know exactly where their power came from, if not how or why.

Planar Affinity: At 1st level, when a when a witch gains her planar orrery, she must also select a plane that she has a particular affinity to. This plane has an effect on the manifest spellshaper, granting the witch power for reasons that she might not entirely understand. This connection is represented by one of the following abilities, and the spells she gains (see below).
At 2nd level, and every two levels thereafter, a manifest spellshaper’s planar connection adds new spells to a manifest spellshaper’s list of spells known. These spells are also automatically added to the list of spells stored by the planar orrery. The spells gained depend upon the plane chosen.
This ability replaces the witch’s patron spells and the hex gained at 1st level.
Planar Orrery: At 1st level, a manifest spellshaper gains an miniature orrery of Eberron’s cosmology instead of a familiar. This orrery is similar to a wizard’s arcane bond bonded item, and follows all the rules of such an item with the following exceptions.
A manifest spellshaper’s planar orrery serves as a vessel for her spells and a conduit for communication with the planes. A manifest spellshaper must commune with her planar orrery each day to prepare her spells. The orrery stores all of the spells that the manifest spellshaper knows, and the manifest spellshaper cannot prepare spells that are not stored within it. A manifest spellshaper starts with the same number of spells and gains new spells the same way as a witch, and can even add spells by learning them from scrolls in the same way, but a manifest spellshaper cannot learn spells from another planar orrery. Since a manifest spellshaper does not have a spellbook, starting at 2nd level, a manifest spellshaper’s orrery can be used once per day to cast a spell dependent on the planar connection chosen by the bonded witch. The spell is treated like any other spell cast by the manifest spellshaper, including its casting time, duration, and other effects dependent of the manifest spellshaper’s level. This spell cannot be further modified by metamagic feats or any other ability. This ability replaces the witch’s familiar.
