Spellsword -Updated 2018-

Recommended Posts

As students of both arcane ritual and martial technique, spellswords strive to combine both, gradually learning to cast spells in armor with less chance of failure. Feared by warriors because of his magic, and feared by spellcasters because of his weapon, a spellsword often walks the world alone.

Spell Progression

Spell progression as the primary (or some cases both primary) spell casting class(es) requires some explanation. First of all there is no option to choose new spells when leveling in the prestige class with this ability. This means that even though the character will in theory gain higher level spell casting slots (or uses) they will need to learn the actual spells in other ways. In the case of wizards this can be done through scrolls, clerics and druids learn spells automatically and bards and sorcerers will need to level up in their primary class to learn new spells.

The next thing of note is that this ability allows the character to gain spell slots/uses. The class will not increase the caster level of spells, which is calculated based on the primary casting class(es). In other words, even though the character gains spells slots/uses his spell power will generally be lower than that of a pure class character of similar level.
