Arcane

Your family has always been skilled in the eldritch art of magic. While many of your relatives were accomplished wizards, your powers developed without the need for study and practice.

Class Skill: Knowledge (any one).

Bonus Spells: identify (3rd), invisibility (5th), dispel magic (7th), dimension door (9th), overland flight (11th), true seeing (13th), greater teleport (15th), power word stun (17th), wish (19th).

Bonus Feats: Combat Casting, Improved Counterspell, Improved Initiative, Iron Will, Scribe Scroll, Skill Focus (Knowledge [arcana]), Spell Focus, Still Spell.

Bloodline Arcana: Whenever you apply a metamagic feat to a spell that increases the slot used by at least one level, increase the spell's DC by +1. This bonus does not stack with itself and does not apply to spells modified by the Heighten Spell feat.

Bloodline Powers: Magic comes naturally to you, but as you gain levels you must take care to prevent the power from overwhelming you.

  • Arcane Bond (Su): At 1st level, you gain an arcane bond, as a wizard equal to your sorcerer level. Your sorcerer levels stack with any wizard levels you possess when determining the powers of your familiar or bonded object. This ability does not allow you to have both a familiar and a bonded item.
  • Metamagic Adept (Ex): At 3rd level, you can apply any one metamagic feat you know to a spell you are about to cast without increasing the casting time. You must still expend a higher-level spell slot to cast this spell. You can use this ability once per day at 3rd level and one additional time per day for every four sorcerer levels you possess beyond 3rd, up to five times per day at 19th level. At 20th level, this ability is replaced by arcane apotheosis.
  • New Arcana (Ex): At 9th level, you can add any one spell from the sorcerer/wizard spell list to your list of spells known. This spell must be of a level that you are capable of casting. You can also add one additional spell at 13th level and 17th level.
  • School Power (Ex): At 15th level, pick one school of magic. The DC for any spells you cast from that school increases by +2. This bonus stacks with the bonus granted by Spell Focus.
  • Arcane Apotheosis (Ex): At 20th level, your body surges with arcane power. You can add any metamagic feats that you know to your spells without increasing their casting time, although you must still expend higher-level spell slots. Whenever you use magic items that require charges, you can instead expend spell slots to power the item. For every three levels of spell slots that you expend, you consume one less charge when using a magic item that expends charges.

Sage

Scholars of the arcane are always creating new means to use magic.

Associated Bloodline: Arcane.

Bloodline Arcana: Unlike most sorcerers, whose innate magic is powered by force of personality, you use your intellect to understand and master your mystic powers. You use your Intelligence, rather than your Charisma, to determine all class features and effects relating to your sorcerer class, such as bonus spells per day, the maximum spell level you can cast, the save DCs of your spells, and the number of daily uses of your bloodline powers. You gain a +2 bonus on all Knowledge (arcana) and Spellcraft checks.

Bloodline Powers: Your preferred focus is a bolt of mind-spun magic.

  • Arcane Bolt (Sp) : Starting at 1st level, you can unleash a ray of magic force as a standard action, targeting any foe within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. This ray deals 1d4 points of damage + 1 for every two sorcerer levels you possess. This damage is treated as a spell of a level equal to half your sorcerer level, and is a force effect. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. This bloodline power replaces arcane bond.

Bloodrager

Bonus Feats: Combat Reflexes, Disruptive*, Improved Initiative, Iron Will, Power Attack, Quick Draw, Spellbreaker*

*Your bloodrager levels count as fighter levels for the purposes of qualifying for these feats.

Bonus Spells: magic missile (7th), invisibility (10th), lightning bolt (13th), dimension door (16th).

Bloodline Powers: When you bloodrage, arcane power transforms you into an arcane juggernaut who can cut down even the most careful caster.

  • Disruptive Bloodrage (Su): At 1st level, the DC to cast spells defensively increases by 2 for enemies within your threatened area. This increase stacks with those granted by the Disruptive feat.
  • Arcane Bloodrage (Sp): At 4th level, when you enter a bloodrage, you can choose one of the following spells and apply its effects on you: blur, protection from arrows, resist energy, or spider climb. The effects of the spell last for as long as the bloodrage lasts, regardless of its normal duration.
  • Greater Arcane Bloodrage (Sp): At 8th level, when you enter a bloodrage, you can choose to apply the effects of either displacement, or haste to yourself. This is in addition to arcane bloodrage, and otherwise works as that ability.
  • Caster's Scourge (Ex): At 12th level, you gain a a pool of extra attacks of opportunity equal to your Dexterity bonus (minimum 1). You can only use this pool of attacks of opportunity to make attacks against spellcasters who cast or attempt to cast defensively in your threatened area. Either the Spellbreaker feat, the caster's bane bloodrage power, or some similar effect is still required to make attacks of opportunity against spellcasters who successfully cast defensively.
  • True Arcane Bloodrage (Sp): At 16th level, when you enter a bloodrage, you can choose one of the following spells and apply its effects on you: beast shape IV (choose a creature your size or larger only), form of the dragon I, or transformation. This is in addition to arcane bloodrage and greater arcane bloodrage, and otherwise works as those abilities.
  • Caster's Bane (Ex): At 20th level, spellcasters with a caster level lower than your bloodrager level always provoke attacks of opportunity within your threatened area, even when they're casting defensively. You have this ability constantly, even while not bloodraging.
