Runeforged Warrior (Fighter/Magus)

Fighters are often skilled smiths and crafters, in addition to their martial trade. The runeforged warrior takes this trade a step further, enhancing both his craft and his fighting with a flare of arcane might. With the ability to craft and enhance his own equipment, the runeforged warrior takes on the battlefield fully prepared every time. (Original Concept by Iorthol)

Primary Class: Fighter.

Secondary Class: Magus.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Dice: d10.

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

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The runeforged warrior is proficient with simple and martial weapons, with light and medium armor, but not with shields. He can cast runeforged warrior spells while wearing light and medium armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a runeforged warrior wearing heavy armor or using a shield incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass runeforged warrior still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Bonded Weapon (Sp): At 1st level, the runeforged warrior begins play with one bonded weapon at no cost. The bonded weapon must be a melee weapon the runeforged warrior is proficient with. This weapon is of masterwork quality, and is not made of any special materials. A runeforged warrior cannot cast spells without his bonded weapon in hand.
