Martial Spiritualist (Spiritualist Archetype)
The Gravecaller's Handbook


Martial spiritualists are proficient with simple weapons, as well as light armor and bucklers. In addition, if this is this character’s first level in any class, they may select a martial tradition of their choice.

This alters proficiencies.

Combat Training

A martial spiritualist may combine combat spheres and talents to create powerful martial techniques. Martial spiritualists are considered Proficient practitioners and use Wisdom as their practitioner modifier.

If the martial spiritualist possesses an archetype that changes the ability score used for her casting or that grants spherecasting, she may use that ability score instead of her Wisdom as her practitioner modifier. For example, a fractured mind spiritualist (Occult Adventures pg. 109) could use Charisma as her practitioner modifier instead of her Wisdom.

Learned Hand (Ex)

From the whispers of the spirits and remnants of past emotion and memory, the martial spiritualist learns to better harness their physical potentials. At 3rd level and every 5 levels thereafter, the martial spiritualist chooses one combat sphere. The spiritualist gains that sphere as a bonus combat sphere and uses her spiritualist level in place of her base attack bonus for the purposes of that sphere’s effects, but not for attacks made with talents from that sphere. This stacks normally with base attack bonus gained from other sources.

If the martial spiritualist chooses a combat sphere she has already selected with this class feature, she instead gains a bonus combat talent in that sphere and a +1 bonus to attack rolls made with attack actions granted by that sphere and to the DCs of that combat sphere’s effects (such as the attack roll made with a brutal strike or the DC of an (exertion) talent). These benefits stack.

This ability replaces bonded manifestation and dual bond, but may be altered or replaced by other archetypes.

Greater Compatibility

The martial spiritualist may choose to exchange both the combat training class feature granted by this archetype and the magic talents granted by a spiritualist archetype that grants spherecasting (such as the psychomancer archetype). If she does, the martial spiritualist gains the blended training class feature, gaining a combat or magic talent at every class level, and a bonus combat talent or magic talent from the Death, Life, or Mind sphere at 2nd level and every 4 levels thereafter.

Note: Greater compatibility assumes that the martial spiritualist archetype is being combined with the psychomancer archetype (a Mid-Caster gaining 3/4ths of a magic talent every level) to grant a combination of the 15 total magic talents and the 10 total combat talents as 20 blended talents plus 5 thematically appropriate talents. If the martial spiritualist archetype is combined with a spiritualist spherecasting archetype which grants more or less than 3/4ths of a magic talent every level, the resulting blended training, and any additional thematic talents, should be appropriately adjusted.
