Sorcerer bloodlines, talents and spells (3pp)

Sorcerer Class Features (Revised)

Contents

Metamagic and Sorcery Points (New)

A sorcerer’s magic is an innate ability, and they can intuitively control it as if they were moving a hand or a finger. Each bloodline has metamagic tricks to improve their spells. Arcane sorcerers are great at targeting their spells, whereas draconic sorcerers have a few extra tricks with their breath weapons, and so on.

To fuel these tricks, this book adds sorcery points as a new resource for sorcerers. You have a pool of sorcery points equal to your Charisma modifier, and you regain all expended sorcery points after a full heal-up.

To use a metamagic ability, you must declare that you spend sorcery points on a spell or roll before rolling the dice, unless the description says otherwise. The benefit only applies to this casting of the spell. You can only augment a spell with one metamagic ability at a time.

If you have gained a spell through your Access to … class feature, you can apply metamagic to them in the same way you augment your sorcerer spells.

Adventurer Feat: Increase your maximum sorcery points by 1.

Sorcerous Bloodlines (New)

The new bloodline class feature customizes the Access to Wizardry, Gather Power (chaotic benefit), Dancing Lights, and Random Energy class features of the Core Book sorcerer. If you have a familiar, it also changes the available options.

With this update, each sorcerer spell is now linked to one or more bloodlines. You can still choose your sorcerer spells freely from any bloodline, but certain effects and benefits will only trigger for spells from your bloodline. The bloodlines presented in this book are:

Arcane Bloodline: Descendants of powerful wizards

Celestial Bloodline: Divine casters with angelic blood

Draconic Bloodline: The pure gift granted by dragons

Fey Bloodline: Progeny of fey creatures

Infernal Bloodline: The taint of the Abyss

Storm Bloodline: Infusion with raw elemental power

Umbral Bloodline: Engulfed by the shadows of the Underworld

Wild Magic: Spontaneously manifested, untamed and chaotic forces

Arcane Bloodline

The arcane bloodline originates from old wizard dynasties, who have studied and manipulated magic over so many generations the arcane energies have infused their essence. In rare cases, the bloodline can also manifest spontaneously in people who survived encounters with strong magical forces. Sorcerers of this bloodline often show small elemental manifestations on their bodies, like eyes of burning fire, snowflakes on their hair, or lightning cracking between their fingers.

Linked Rune: Magic

Access to Wizardry

Starting at 3rd level, you can take a wizard spell in place of a sorcerer spell. The wizard spell must be two levels lower than the sorcerer spell.

Special: If you have the Arcane Heritage talent (see the revised version in this book), you can choose one of your wizard spells without the -2 level penalty.

Adventurer Feat: Use Charisma instead of Intelligence with your chosen wizard spells.

Arcane Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you gather power, you gain a sorcery point (see the Metamagic and Sorcery Points class feature above). This can temporarily give you more sorcery points than your starting pool, but unused points above your pool are lost at the end of the battle.

Arcane Metamagic

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Precision (2 points): Gain a +2 bonus to attack with the spell. If the spell is a sorcerer spell with the arcane keyword or a wizard spell, increase the bonus to +3.

Mana Reserve (2 points): Gain a +2 bonus to a spell recharge roll you make after a battle, after rolling the die.

Arcane Preservation (2 points): If all attack rolls with the spell are a natural 1–5, you don’t expend the spell.

Adventurer Feat: If the target spell is a sorcerer spell with the arcane keyword, the metamagic abilities above cost 1 point less.

Dancing Lights

Arcane Familiars

Arcane familiars choose two familiar abilities, as per the Wizard’s Familiar talent.

Celestial Bloodline

Even though the gods are distant in the Dragon Empire, celestial beings from the divine realms can manifest on the surface world, and sometimes even beget offspring with mortals. This ancestry can manifest in the ability to wield an innate divine magic without requiring faith, worship, or religion, even generations later. Celestial sorcerers often have a delicate, unnatural beauty to them, as if they are too pure for this world.

<<<Begin Sidebar>>>

If it fits your character concept, you can interpret the Celestial bloodline sorcerer as an invoker of divine power. In that case, switch your magic type to divine and swap wand implements for holy symbols.

Access to Divine Magic (Replaces Access to Wizardry)

Starting at 3rd level, you can take a cleric spell in place of a sorcerer spell. The cleric spell must be two levels lower than the sorcerer spell.

Special: You can take one divine domain from the cleric list as a sorcerer talent. Interpret any reference to cleric spells as applying to both sorcerer and cleric spells. If you take the domain, you also gain access to its domain spells, and you can choose one of your cleric spells without the -2 level penalty.

Adventurer Feat: When you empower a spell that grants healing, double the amount of hit points granted by it. When you empower a spell that grants a bonus to attacks, defenses or saves, double the bonus.

Adventurer Feat: You can cast the cleric’s Heal spell once per battle.

Epic Feat: When you Gather Power, you gain an additional use of the Heal spell this battle.

Celestial Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, you gain the divine benefit below. Unlike other bloodlines, this benefit is not random. Instead, it depends on the escalation die.

Divine Benefit

Escalation DieAdventurer Tier
NoneGain a +1 bonus to PD and MD until the start of your next turn.
OddDeal holy damage equal to your Wisdom modifier (x2 at 5th level; x3 at 8th) + Level to one nearby enemy.
EvenHeal hit points equal to Wisdom modifier (x2 at 5th level; x3 at 8th) to a nearby staggered ally.
If no nearby allies are staggered, gain a +1 bonus to AC until the end of your next turn.

Adventurer Feat: When you empower a sorcerer spell with the Celestial keyword, gain the celestial benefit again, using the escalation die of the current turn.

Champion Feat: Target two enemies / allies with the odd / even effect.

Celestial Metamagic

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Holy Spell (1 point): Change the spell’s damage to holy damage.

Rejuvenating Spell (1 point): The target also gains temporary hit points equal to your Wisdom modifier (x2 at 5th level; x3 at 8th) plus twice the spell level.

Radiant Halo (Replaces Dancing Lights)

Celestial sorcerers can cast the radiant halo spell as a standard action. The spell produces an intense, almost blinding light source that is centered around the top of your head. It bathes the area within 30 feet around you in a bright light which shines far past that distance. While the light provides perfect visibility as if under daylight conditions, and can even pierce dense fog, it makes attempts at stealth pretty much impossible.

At the GM’s discretion, the halo can give creatures that are attuned to darkness (such as dark elves) a -1 penalty to attacks against you.

The spell usually lasts at least an hour. You can cast it a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.

Celestial Familiars

Celestial familiars are often animals from divine realms. They resemble animals from the prime material plane, but in a true, perfect sense. Their fur is shinier, and even if they don’t speak, they have a reserved wisdom to them that is unlike any mortal creature. Celestial familiars have two familiar abilities, which can be Celestial Ward, Healing Touch, or Radiant listed below, or the Alert, Flight, Scout, Tough, or Talkative abilities from the wizard list.

Celestial Ward: Once per battle, when the Sorcerer, or an adjacent ally is attacked, give the attack a penalty equal to the escalation die.

Healing Touch: Once per day, the familiar can touch an ally. The ally can use a recovery to heal.

Radiant: Once per battle, when you hit an enemy engaged with you, you can add 5 ongoing holy damage per tier to the damage roll.

Draconic Bloodline

Dragons have long had the power to change shape and mingle with the numerous but short-lived humanoid beings. Unions between humanoid and dragon can create offspring, and you trace your ancestry back to such a union. Sorcerers of the draconic bloodline often have draconic features, such as patches of scaly skin, lizard eyes, or horns.

Linked Icon: Great Gold Wyrm, The Three

Linked Rune: Dragonewt

Access to Wizardry

Starting at 3rd level, you can take a wizard spell in place of a sorcerer spell. The wizard spell must be two levels lower than the sorcerer spell.

Special: If you have the Chromatic Destroyer Heritage, Metallic Protector Heritage, or Rumble Mumble Rumble (see Bestiary 2 p. 174) talents, you can choose one of your wizard spells without the -2 level penalty. You can only gain this benefit once.

Adventurer Feat: Use Charisma instead of Intelligence with your chosen wizard spells.

<<<Begin Sidebar>>>

Dragons, especially blue dragons, are often depicted as studious and smart masters of magic, which would be the argument for why draconic sorcerers get access to wizard spells. However, if you interpret dragons as embodiments of elemental forces in your campaign, access to Elemental Caster druid spells might make more sense. Or if you want to play up their political role as the true movers and shakers, you may want to give them access to commander tactics instead.

<<<End Sidebar>>>

Draconic Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, gain a draconic benefit as per the table below. This is the same table as for the Core Book sorcerer.

Draconic Metamagic

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Forceful Breath (1 point): Reroll all natural 1s on a damage roll with a breath weapon spell, after making the roll.

Minor Elemental Breath (replaces Dancing Lights)

Sorcerers with the Draconic bloodline can create small elemental effects with their breath at-will. They can light a candle with fire, melt the bolts in a lock with acid, create a shocking sensation with lightning, or cool down a drink with cold. This ability deals damage equal to the sorcerer’s level, which doesn’t quite make it powerful enough for combat use.

Draconic Familiars

If you have the Sorcerer’s Familiar talent, you can choose a pocket dragon or a pseudodragon as familiar. Both start with two abilities. One is Flight, the other is Breathe Fire for the pocket dragon and Prestidigitation for the pseudodragon.

Breathe Fire: Once per battle, your familiar can make a Charisma + Level attack against a nearby opponent’s PD (using your Charisma modifier and level). On a hit, it deals 1d6 per level fire damage against the target, and half damage on a miss. You can change the damage type to match the dragon’s color.

Adventurer Feat: Your familiar can breathe fire twice per battle, but not in the same turn.

Prestidigitation: Your familiar can cast the Prestidigitation cantrip at-will.

Fey Bloodline

The fey realms have many portals into the mortal world, and it is not unheard of for someone to stumble into the fey world and return with strange powers, sometimes decades later. The fey have been known to abduct humanoid children and raise them as their own. Sorcerers with the fey bloodline tend to be capricious and moody. Depending on the type of fey in their ancestry, they can have a wide variety of physical features, such as rainbow-colored hair or goat hooves as feet.

Linked Icon: The Elf Queen

Linked Rune: Illusion

Access to Fey Magic (Replaces Access to Wizardry)

Starting at 3rd level, you can take a bard spell OR a druid spell of the Circle of Feysong in place of a sorcerer spell. The bard / druid spell must be two levels lower than the sorcerer spell.

Special: If you have the Fey Heritage talent, you can choose one of your bard / druid spells without the -2 level penalty.

Fey Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, roll 1d12 on the table below to determine your fey benefit. The fey are fickle and mischievous. When they are on your side, the benefits are great, but watch out when they aren’t.

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Glamorous Distraction (2 points): Change a daze until the end of your next turn effect to daze (save ends).

Fey Trickery (2 points): Treat a natural odd spell attack roll as even, or even as odd, after making the roll.

Fey Familiars

If you have the Sorcerer’s Familiar talent, choose two abilities from the table as per the Wizard’s Familiar. You also have the two additional options below.

Invisibility: Your familiar can turn invisible at-will, but it cannot move while invisible.

Teleport: Your familiar can teleport to a nearby location it can see once per battle (or every 5 minutes).

Infernal Bloodline

The 13th Age has seen many new hellholes opening across the Empire, some of which are conquered and harnessed by the Crusader. This has led to many children born with infernal powers, taken in and raised by the Crusader’s servants. The infernal bloodline tends to manifest in features that are often associated with tieflings, such as intense red skin, horns, tails, and hooves. But demons come in many shapes and forms, so depending on the fiendish ancestry, there could be much stranger manifestations such as spider webs between the hands, or a hyena head.

Linked Icon: The Crusader, The Diabolist

Linked Rune: Chaos

Access to Demonology (Replaces Access to Wizardry)

Choose warlock (see Dark Pacts & Ancient Secrets) or demonologist (see Book of Demons) spells. Starting at 3rd level, you can take a spell from the chosen class in place of a sorcerer spell, at a -2 level penalty. You are considered an initiate for any demonologist spells you choose.

Special: If you have the Blood Sacrifice or Infernal Heritage talent, you can choose one of your demonologist / warlock spells without the -2 level penalty. You can only gain this benefit once.

Infernal Curse (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, roll 1d6 on the table below to set up an infernal curse that is waiting to be triggered by a hapless enemy. Triggering the curse does not require an action by you, and it even happens if you fall unconscious. The curse is active until the end of your next turn, and it can be triggered any number of times.

Infernal Kindling (Replaces Dancing Lights)

All infernal sorcerers can cast the infernal kindling spell as a standard action. The spell produces a number of small dancing flames within thirty feet you, flickering and circling around you. They create enough light to see most things in the area in the dark, but not enough light to guarantee you’re not missing something that’s well hidden, or steady enough to read by. The flames are real, not illusions, and they can set fire to flammable things on command. They can be used to deal damage, but not effectively so (treat as a Burning Hands spell that deals half damage).

The spell usually lasts at least an hour. You can cast it a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.

Demonic Familiar

The classic demonic familiar is an imp with the Flight and Talkative abilities, but they can come in many other shapes and forms, such as horned snakes, fire-breathing dogs, or slimy toads. Choose any two abilities from the Wizard, Warlock, or Demonologist Familiar ability lists, except for agile or alert. Demons have precious little patience for those who are clumsy or can’t watch their own backs. 

Storm Bloodline

This is the storm voice class as introduced in 13th Age Glorantha. For the customized class features of this bloodline and its spell list, refer to the description of the storm voice class. Consider the storm voice spells to be sorcerer spells with the Storm keyword.

Storm Metamagic

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Eye of the Storm (1 point): When a spell or power grants you resistance against lightning or thunder damage, increase the resistance by 2.

Storm Ascendant (1 point): Reroll all natural 1s of a lightning or thunder damage roll, after making the roll.

Umbral Bloodline

Some claim that the Shadow Prince controls a hidden source of magic, woven from the Shadows of our prime existence, and separated from the arcane magics that the dragons and the Archmage lord over.

Other rumors say his power was stolen, and that the Lich King’s phylactery is hidden in the Shadow Prince’s vault. Followers of the Lich King don’t deny that, but they claim that it was stored there for safekeeping, or that the Lich King allowed it to be stolen, to keep it out of reach of more dangerous foes.

What is known is that some children are born with the gifts of the Shadow Prince, able to embrace the darkness and manipulate the shadows.

Umbral sorcerers often appear lifeless, with pale skin, milky white or raven black hair, and raspy, whispering voices. Some have a ghost-like appearance, as if they were not quite there.

Linked Icon: The Lich King or the Shadow Prince

Linked Rune: Death, Darkness

Access to Dark Powers (Replaces Access to Wizardry)

Choose either the necromancer or the rogue class.

Necromancer: Starting from 3rd level, you can switch a sorcerer spell for a necromancer spell 2 levels lower.

Rogue: Starting from 3rd level, you can switch a sorcerer spell for a rogue power with the Shadow keyword 2 levels lower. If you choose a momentum power, track momentum like a rogue.

Special: If you have the Animate Shadow or Undead Remnant Heritage talent, you can switch in one power / spell without the -2 level penalty. You can only get this benefit once.

Adventurer Feat: You can replace Intelligence with Charisma for your chosen necromancer spells.

Umbral Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, roll 1d6 on the table below.

Umbral Metamagic

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

Negative Spell (1 point): Change the spell’s damage type to negative energy damage.

Leeching Spell (1 point): If the spell hits at least one enemy, heal hit points equal to your Constitution modifier (x2 at 5th level; x3 at 8th) + the spell level.

Shadow Spell (1 point): Change the spell’s damage to psychic damage. The spell cannot be countered by abilities such as the blue dragon’s counter-spell.

Shrouding Spell (2 points): On a hit, give the target disadvantage on its next attack roll against you.

Crypt Candles (Replaces Dancing Lights)

All Umbral sorcerers can cast the crypt candles spell as a standard action. The spell produces a circle of black and red candles that provide an eerie illumination within thirty feet of youfeet you. They create enough light to move around, but it’s easy to miss details in the dim, flickering lights. If you move, the zone moves with you.

The candles and their illumination can only be seen by you, your allies and any creatures with a connection to the Shadow Prince or the Lich King. They make invisible creatures visible.

The spell usually lasts at least an hour. You can cast it a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.

Umbral Familiars

Your familiar is a creature associated with the dark arts, such as a cat, raven or a bat. Some are ghostly or skeletal in appearance. Your familiar has two abilities, which you can choose from Consume, Corrupting Touch, Ghost-sight or Insubstantial below, or Counter-bite, Flight, or Poisonous from the wizard list. If you choose a raven, it can also be Talkative.

Consume: Once per day, when an attack would take you below zero hit points, you can consume your familiar as an interrupt. Immediately heal using a free recovery. Your familiar reforms at the next full heal-up.

Corrupting Touch: Once per day, your familiar can make a Charisma + Level attack against the PD of an enemy you are engaged with. On a hit, the target is weakened until the end of your next turn.

Ghost-sight: While your familiar is nearby, you can sense the presence of undead, even at far away range.

Insubstantial: Your familiar can pass through solid objects, but it cannot interact with physical objects (like stealing items and such). If it takes damage, it just dissolves and reappears on your shoulder at the start of your next turn. It would take an exorcism or similar to destroy it.

Wild Magic Bloodline

Arcane scholars designate wild sorcery as a bloodline, but purely out of convenience. There does not seem to be a discernible pattern how, when, or why this magic ability manifests in humanoids. If anything, having an ancestor with any form of arcane ability seems to decrease your chances of being born with this gift. As with all bloodlines, wild magic also manifests in your physical features, but in a much less stable or predictable way. Don’t be surprised if you wake up with sky-blue fingernails and butterflies in your hair one morning; it’s all part of the gift.

Linked Icon: n/a, among the Core Book icons anyway — feel free to create one that fits the campaign

Linked Rune: Disorder

Access to Chaos Magic (Replaces Access to Wizardry)

Starting at 3rd level, you can take a chaos mage spell in place of a sorcerer spell, at two levels lower than the spell it replaces. You cast it like a sorcerer of that frequency — at-will, once-per-battle, or daily.

Special: If you have the Wild Heritage talent, you can choose one of your chaos mage spells without the -2 level penalty.

<<<Begin Sidebar>>>

The wild bloodline gives you access to chaos magic without the unpredictability of the chaos mage class. Consider it an alternative for players who like the flavor of chaos magic but prefer a little more control over what they can do in the game.

Wild Benefit (Replaces Chaotic Benefit)

When you Gather Power, roll 1d6 on the table below. As is to be expected with wild magic, the results are much more varied than with other bloodlines. You can even end up empty-handed, or with a much more powerful benefit.

You gain the following metamagic abilities.

*In 13th Age Monthly: Sorcerer Summoning

Random Energy

The wild bloodline’s “random energy” is a little more random than that of other sorcerers. You roll a d6 on the table, but this will only tell you who gets to describe what you just conjured. And yes, that means if that person considers strawberry jam or butterflies a valid element for the 13th Age Roleplaying Game, that’s what your spell is blasting across the battlefield. It’s up to the GM to decide whether a particular creature is vulnerable or resistant to that “element” or not.

Dancing Lights

Sorcerers with the Wild bloodline cast dancing lights as described on Core Book p. 135.

Wild Familiars

Like Core Book sorcerer familiars, wild familiars have one fixed ability, and two that are determined at random every day. In addition to the choices on the Wizard Familiar list, you have Wild Entropy as an option.

Wild Entropy: Once per day, when you are hit by an attack while your familiar is next to you, your familiar’s magical influence can force the attacker to reroll the attack.

Sorcerer Talents

Animated Shadow

Your shadow is permanently animated, ready to strike at your enemies. Let’s hope it understands that it will only exist as long as you are alive.

Your shadow can fetch items and help with chores, similar to a Mage Hand cantrip.

Once per day, as a quick action, you can separate your shadow and have it aid you until the end of the battle as an independent combatant.

Your shadow has the stats, attacks and defenses as below. It acts on your initiative after you, taking a standard action, a move action, and (if applicable) a quick action. It can’t heal. When it drops to 0 hp, it’s destroyed until the next full heal-up. The shadow counts as your ally. Summoning rules don’t apply to it. It benefits from the default bonus of your items for attacks and defenses.

Animated Shadow

1st level troop, undead

Shadow Choke +4 vs. PD — 1d10 cold damage

Natural even hit: The target has disadvantage on disengage saves until the end of your next turn.

Resist physical damage 16+

Shadow Blur (standard action): The shadow wraps itself around you. Until the start of your next turn, all attacks against you with a natural odd attack roll target the shadow instead.

Adventurer Feat: You can choose to deal negative energy instead of cold damage with your shadow. If you do, change the effect on a natural even hit to “The target’s next attack deals half damage.”

Champion Feat: Shadow Blur is a quick action.

Epic Feat: The first time your shadow is destroyed after a full heal-up, you can animate it again after a quick rest.

Arcane Heritage (Revised)

Although magic is in the blood of every sorcerer, you have a greater understanding of magic than most sorcerers and even some wizards.

Special: You must have access to wizard spells through the Access to Wizardry class feature.

Like a wizard, you can choose to give up one spell slot to memorize a utility spell at the same level. You can then use the spell slot to cast one spell from the wizard’s utility spell list, without choosing it in advance.

You also gain a +2 bonus to a background that involves or suggests magical knowledge or talent, up to your normal maximum background point limit.

Adventurer Feat: Gain three wizard cantrips as at-will bonus spells.

Champion Feat: Gain a bonus sorcery point.

Epic Feat: You gain Overworld Advantage like a wizard.

<<<Begin Sidebar>>>

Sorcerers with Access to Wizardry, but without Arcane Heritage, can still choose wizard utility spells, but they can’t reserve a spell slot to spontaneously cast a utility spell of their choice.

<<<End Sidebar>>>

Arcane Overload (Metamagic)

Your connection to the magical energies of the world is unmatched. As the arcane energies surge in the heat of battle, you find yourself dripping with raw, magical power. You’ve learned how to harness this residual energy to further empower your spells with extra oomph.

Gain a bonus sorcery point, and the following metamagic abilities. (See the Metamagic and Sorcery Points class feature for detail).

Overloaded Spell (1 point): Increase all damage dice by one step (d4 -> d6 -> d8 -> d10 -> d12 -> 2d6 -> 2d8).

Minor Chain Spell (2 points): When your attack roll with the spell is a natural even roll, make a second attack against a different target. Unlike a real chain spell, this can only trigger once. You can make non-attack spells into chain spells, just roll a d20 and see whether it’s even. You cannot use this enhancement with spells that are already chain spells.

Overwhelming Spell (4 points): You have advantage on the first attack roll with the spell.

Adventurer Feat: You can now overload spells for 3 points, and increase the damage dice by 2 steps.

Champion Feat: When using Overwhelming Spell on a spell with multiple attack rolls, you can spend one extra sorcery point on each following attack to gain advantage on those attack rolls too. 

Blood Sacrifice

When you have exhausted your magic reserves, you can push yourself further by sacrificing your life essence.

Special: This talent requires the Infernal Bloodline.

Once per battle, when you Gather Power, you can spend a recovery without healing as a free action to immediately regain a spell that you have expended this day or this battle.

Adventurer Feat: Add your Constitution modifier to damage with the regained spell (x2 at 5th level; x3 at 8th).

Chameleon

Your body is infused with your magic, and you shape and bend it to your liking.

When you cast a sorcerer daily spell on yourself, the spell becomes recharge 16+ after battle. When you cast a spell with a recharge roll on yourself, reduce the target number for the roll by 4.

Adventurer Feat: When you target yourself with a spell, gain a temporary 5-point background that represents your skill at using your changed form.

Champion Feat: Gain a bonus spell at 4 levels below your class level. You can choose the spell from any class, but you can only choose spells that target yourself.

Exclusive Blood

You’ve had many ancestors with the powers of your sorcerous bloodline. You may have even been bred for it. Or, you are a close descendant of an icon that is the source of sorcerous powers.

You gain a bonus bloodline spell slot, which you can use to spontaneously cast spells from your bloodline. You don’t choose the spell to cast in that slot after a full heal-up. Instead, you can use it to cast any spell from your bloodline, at the highest level you can cast. If the spell is a daily spell, the slot is expended until the next full heal-up (although in case of a breath spell, you still recharge it during the battle normally). If the spell has a recharge roll after battle, and you succeed on the roll, you regain the spell slot instead of the individual spell. If the spell is once per battle, you also regain the slot after the battle. In case of an at-will spell, you can cast it at-will that battle, and then regain the slot after the battle.

This increased specialization comes at a cost, however, by limiting your overall spell choice. Choose two bloodlines in addition to your own bloodline. You can only cast sorcerer spells of these three bloodlines, as well as any spells gained through your Spell Access class feature. If a spell belongs to multiple bloodlines, you can cast it if you have access to one of them.

Adventurer Feat: You can When casting a rituals based on a spells of your bloodline, withyou have advantage on the skill check.

Champion Feat: You can cast all spells offrom your bloodline as if you had their adventurer feat.

Epic Feat:  You can cast all spells offrom your bloodline as if you had their champion feat.

Metamagic Expertise

You have received the best arcane training available in the Empire. You can perform fine manipulation on your spells as you cast them, shaping them as needed in the given situation.

Gain a bonus sorcery point, and the following metamagic abilities. (See the Metamagic and Sorcery Points class feature for details).

Elemental Admixture (1 point): You can switch a spell that does acid, fire, cold, or lightning damage to another damage type from that list.

Far Spell (1 point per target): Target a far away creature instead of a nearby creature.

Heighten Spell (3 points): Cast the spell as if it was 2 levels higher. You cannot heighten a spell above your class level +1.

Lasting Spell (1 point): The spell lasts an additional turn. If the spell is a “save ends“ spell, it ends at the end of the target‘s next turn after it succeeded on the saving throw. [champion: 2 points; 2 turns]

Master Spell (1 point per feat): Cast the spell with all feat effects up to your tier.

Piercing Spell (1 point): If the spell is limited by the hit points of the creature it can affect, increase that limit by 5 times your level. [champion: 2 points; 10x your level]

Widen Spell (2 points): Increase the spell’s number of targets by 1. This can only be used with spells that target more than one creature. [champion: 3 points; Use with spells that target only one creature]

Adventurer Feat: You can augment a spell with two different metamagic abilities.

Champion Feat: You can use the champion versions in square brackets above.

Street-fighting Magic (Metamagic)

You’ve trained with your spells in the back alleys of the big city, where a quick blast serves the same purpose as a kick in the nuts — establish authority or make a hasty escape.

Gain a bonus sorcery point, and the following metamagic abilities (see the Metamagic and Sorcery Points class feature for details).

Backstabbing Spell (1 point): Gain a +2 bonus to your critical threat range with the spell.

Disorienting Spell (1 points): The first target you hit with the spell is also dazed until the end of your next turn.

Escape Spell (1 point per enemy): Pop free from all enemies before casting the spell.

Feint Spell (3 points): Change the defense you attack to MD.

Silent Spell (1 point): You cast the spell stealthily, so your spellcasting is not noticed by others. Of course, flashy effects like Lightning Fork are widely visible, but you can conceal that the magic originated from you.

Adventurer Feat: You can spend two points on backstabbing spell for a +4 bonus to the critical threat range, and you can daze multiple enemies with disorienting spell, at a cost of 1 point per enemy.

Champion Feat: Reduce the point cost of feint spell to 2 points.

Sword & Sorcery

You’ve learned that your innate magic alone is not enough for survival, and you’ve trained yourself in the arts of swordplay.

You can wield martial one-handed melee weapons without penalty, and you can choose two additional benefits from the list below.

  • You can use a true magic item weapon as an implement for your sorcerer spells.
  • You can use Charisma for attack and damage with one-handed melee weapons.
  • You can wield two-handed martial melee weapons without penalty.
  • If you are multiclassed, the sorcerer side is considered a “skillful warrior” and does not reduce your weapon damage die. If you choose this benefit, you have one less sorcerer spell of the highest level you can cast.
  • You can replace a sorcerer spell with a Swordmage spell two levels lower.
  • Increase your recovery dice to d8.
  • Gain the following metamagic ability:
    Channel Spell (2 points): You deliver the spell through a melee attack. You must be engaged to all targets to do so. You don’t provoke opportunity attacks. The spell targets AC. On a hit, add your WEAPON damage dice to the damage.

Adventurer Feat: Gain a third benefit from the list.

Champion Feat: Gain a fourth benefit.

Epic Feat: Gain a fifth benefit.

Wild Magic Heritage

Your innate magical talent is strong, but untamed. It manifests itself in devastating spells, just not always when you want it.

Special: This talent requires the Wild bloodline.

The damage dice of your sorcerer spells are exploding dice (reroll any die that comes up as the maximum number and add the reroll).

Adventurer Feat: When you miss with a spell that deals damage equal to your level (or less) on a miss, deal 1d2 extra damage. (2nd level: 1d4; 4th level: 1d6; 6th level: 1d8; 8th level: 1d10; 10th level: 1d12)

Champion Feat: Whenever you roll a natural 1 with a spell attack roll, gain a sorcery point.
