Antiquarian

Less adept at combat, these armigers affix relics, mystic foci, and other items of magical potency to their weaponry, using the power of such items to unlock and focus their latent casting ability.

Base Attack Bonus: An antiquarian gains base attack bonus equal to a hedgewitch of her class level.

This modifies base attack bonus.

Hit Dice: An antiquarian uses d8 for her Hit Die.

Class Skills: The antiquarian adds Knowledge (arcana, Int), Spellcraft (Int), and Use Magic Device (Cha) to her list of class skills but removes Climb (Str), Intimidate (Cha), and Survival (Wis).

Spell Pool: An antiquarian gains a small reservoir of energy she can call on to create truly wondrous effects, called a spell pool. This pool contains a number of spell points equal to her class level + her practitioner modifier (minimum 1). This pool replenishes once per day after roughly 8 hours of rest.

Mystic Bond: When customizing a weapon, the antiquarian may choose to have the weapon grant magic talents, replacing granted martial talents at a 1 for 1 exchange. When such a talent is granted, the antiquarian is considered a Mid-Caster, counts her class levels as casting class levels, and uses her practitioner modifier as her casting ability modifier. These caster levels stacks normally with caster levels gained from other sources. When not wielding such a weapon, she does not gain any caster levels from her antiquarian levels. She does not count as possessing the casting class feature for the purpose of the 2 bonus talents gained from the casting class feature.

This modifies customize weapon.

Spell Assault: The antiquarian may activate her rapid assault ability whenever a creature takes damage from or fails a save against a sphere ability with a casting time of a standard action or greater. This is in addition to the standard activation triggers.

This modifies rapid assault.

Mystic Enhancement: At 5th level, in addition to its normal effects, the antiquarian’s bonus from enhanced customization applies to the caster level of any spheres from which talents are granted by her active weapon.

This modifies enhanced customization.

Mage’s Assault: When using Lightning Assault, the antiquarian may cast a sphere effect with no longer than a standard action casting time in place of either (but not both) of the granted attack actions.

This modifies lightning assault.

New Prowesses

The following prowesses are available exclusively to antiquarians:

Focused Assault: (Requires Rapid Assault) The antiquarian may forgo additional attacks from rapid assault to instead increase the potency of her next sphere effect. She gains a +2 bonus on caster level for each additional attack her rapid assault would have granted her on the next sphere effect she casts before the end of her next turn.

Spellbreaker: (Requires 5th level) The antiquarian may add the Counterspell feat, or any feat with it as a prerequisite, to a customized weapon in place of a talent. The antiquarian counts her class levels as casting class levels when making counterspell checks while such a weapon is her active weapon. The antiquarian must meet the prerequisites for feats granted in this way, treating her class levels as casting class levels for this purpose.
