My Starfinder project will be science fantasy. I am working on Channel Energy...first off this is going to be a campaign without deities. That is not to say that people won't worship deities, but the worship of them provides nothing to the pious.

If we are going to be scientific, an approach to Channel Energy needs to separated from the cleric class, which will be non-existent. Negative and Positive Energy? Too generic. We need energy planes that are represented with names that are appropriate. Enter the Electrolytic (negative) and Protonic (positive) types, these are strictly descriptors associated with [channel] energy.

I need to work on a planar set-up that is consistent with real world science. I want my science fantasy to be as real as scientifically real as possible.

Haven't decided whether characters will take class level or this will be a classless setting. I am weighing closer to classless since I have been really aching to to do a D20 System/Pathfinder classless project.

Classless would mean choosing a "packet" of base character abilities and allowing players to completely customize their starting features. Packets would be close to pregen characters, with some leeway towards customization. Freestyle characters, those without a packet, can choose talents akin to those found in D20 Modern; gaining character levels allows them to gain access to more talents and "scale-up" existing talents.

Scaling up from starting your adventuring career as a Spellcaster is the only way to achieve the potency needed to cast the highest level spells, the later in ones adventuring career that they gain aptitude with magic the more powerful magics (read: higher spell levels) become inaccessible.

Channel Energy [Talent]
You are able to draw forth planar energy and release it, whether to the benefit or detriment of those around you.
Prerequisite: Caster level 1st, Wis or Cha 11
Benefit: You can channel planar power through yourself that can be used to cause or heal damage depending on the type of energy channeled and the creatures targeted; channeling electrolytic energy deals damage to living creatures and heals undead creatures whereas protonic energy deals damage to undead living creatures and heals living creatures.

Channeling energy causes a burst that affects all creatures of one type (either undead or living) in a 30-foot radius centered on the character. The amount of damage dealt or healed is dependent on the highest level spell you are capable of casting, but the type of die remains static at D6; the highest level spell you are capable of casting equals the amount of dice rolled. Creatures that take damage from channeled energy receive a Fort save to halve the damage. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the character's caster level + the higher of either the character's Wisdom or Charisma modifier. Creatures healed by channeled energy cannot exceed their maximum hit point total—all excess healing is lost.

A character may channel energy 3 times per day. This is a standard action that does not provoke an attack of opportunity. A character can choose whether or not to include herself in this effect.
