Revised Magister for PF1 (Part 6)
Posted by Owen K.C. Stephens
We start the week continuing with more new stuff for our Revised Magister class, for PF1. Having done the core mystic bond rules and updated all the original ones, today we continue to add new mystic bonds, rounding out or new occult bonds.
Mystic Implements (occult) – A magister with this mystic bond explores the eldritch links between objects and specific forms of magic. The magister gains one implement school from the occultist class feature of the same name, and its base focus power. She also gains the occultist’s mental focus class feature, with a number of points of mental focus equal to half her magister level (minimum 1) plus the bonus of her secondary spellcasting ability (see the magister spells class feature for more details on primary and secondary spellcasting ability scores).
The magister can select additional focus powers at 4th and 8th level. She can select an additional implement school (gaining their base powers) instead of magister bonus feats at 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th level. Alternatively, a magister can select additional an additional focus power for any implement school she knows instead of a bonus feat.
The magister adds all spells from any implement school she knows to her primary spell list (see “Choosing Spells”). The magister treats her magister level as her occultist level for all abilities gained through the mystic implements bond.
Special: A divine spellcaster who worships a god that grants the Artifice domain may select the mystic implements mystic bond.
Psychic Bond (occult) – This represents a method of accessing magical powers using a specific part of the magister’s mind or psyche. The magister gains one psychic discipline from the class feature of the same name of the psychic class. The magister does not receive the discipline’s spells as bonus spells known, but they are added to the magister’s primary spell list (see “Choosing Spells”).
The magister can select phrenic amplifications instead of magister bonus feats at 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th level. The first time she does this, she gains a phrenic pool (with her phrenic points determined based on the ability score determined by her psychic discipline). The magister treats her magister level as her psychic level for all abilities gained through this bond.
