Elemental Blade (Fighter/Wizard)

The majority of fighters are trained solely with martial techniques, elemental blades are fighters with the smallest spark of arcane talent. Their trainers focus this talent into an elemental focus allowing them to cast an extremely limited selection of spells, though this comes at a cost to their martial skills. (Original Concept by Browman)

Primary Class: Fighter.

Secondary Class: Wizard (elemental).

Alignment: Any.

Hit Dice: d10.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The elemental blade may select three wizard skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal fighter class skills. The elemental blade gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 2 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: An elemental blade is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, light armor, medium armor, and with shields (except tower shields). An elemental blade can cast arcane spells while wearing light or medium armor and using a shield without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, an elemental blade wearing heavy armor incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass elemental blade still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Cantrips: An elemental blade can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day, as noted on Table: Elemental Blade under “Spells per Day.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again. An elemental blade cannot prepare a cantrip from his opposition school.
