Trick Blade (Rogue/Magus)

Typically, the trick blade is nothing more than a thief who came across a spellbook in early life, and was deeply entranced by the mysteries of magic within, while others are the black sheep of a sorcerous bloodline, or lack the vital spark to become a true wizard. Despite their magical deficiencies, trick blades learn to use arcane spells in small ways, seeking so much more- and finding ways to see it in others. (Original Concept by RaiderRPG

Primary Class: Rogue.

Secondary Class: Magus.

Alignment: Any. 

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: A trick blade selects three magus skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal rogue class skills. The trick blade gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 8 + Int.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Trick blades are proficient with all simple weapons, plus the hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, short sword, and one martial weapon of their choice. They are proficient with light armor, and with light shields. A trick blade can cast magus spells while wearing light armor and using a light shield without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a trick blade wearing medium or heavy armor, or using a heavy or tower shield, incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass trick blade still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.

Spellcasting: A trick blade casts arcane spells drawn from the magus spell list. His caster level is equal to his trick blade level –3 (minimum 1st level). Only magus spells of 4th level and lower are considered to be part of the trick blade's spell list.
