Battle Caster (Sorcerer/Fighter)

Battle casters are obsessed with the idea of personal combat. Although they possess innate talent with arcane magic, they engage in physical training to strengthen their bodies and reduce the inherent physical weakness that most sorcerers succumb to. Whether it’s a spell duel or a martial frenzy, the battle caster remains calm and focused in the heat of battle, waging war in the way he most sees fit and most surely ensures success.

Primary Class: Sorcerer.

Secondary Class: Fighter.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The battle caster may select three fighter skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal sorcerer class skills. The battle caster gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 4 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The battle caster is proficient with all simple weapons and one martial weapon of their choice. He is proficient with light armor, but not with shields. He can cast spells while wearing light armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a battle caster 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 battle caster still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.
