Bonded Warmage (Magus/Summoner)

(Original Concept by Orelius)

Primary Class: Magus.

Secondary Class: Summoner.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Die: d8.

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

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The bonded warmage is proficient with all simple and martial weapons. A bonded warmage is also proficient with light armor. He can cast magus spells while wearing light armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a magus wearing medium armor, heavy armor, or a shield incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass bonded warmage still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Diminished Spellcasting: The bonded warmage casts arcane spells drawn from the magus spell list, and gains one fewer spell of each spell level per day. If this reduces the number to 0, he may cast spells of that level only if his Charisma allows bonus spells of that level. A bonded warmage adds the following spells to his list at the indicated spell levels: cantrips—resistance; 1st level—life conduit†, magic fang, rejuvenate eidolon (lesser*); 2nd level—evolution surge (lesser)*, restore eidolon (lesser)±; 3rd level—devolution*, evolution surge*, life conduit (improved)†, magic fang (greater), rejuvenate eidolon*, restore eidolon±; 4th level—evolution surge (greater)*, purified calling*, summoner conduit†, transmogrify*; 5th level—
