Red Mage (Magus)
Red mages are magus who blends arcane and divine magic in a single art. They focus on utility spells rather than raw power.
Spells: A red mage uses the bard spell list, rather than the magus spell list.
Skills: All Knowledge skills (Int) and Linguistics (Int) are class skill for the red mage.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A red mage is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the longbow, shortbow and all martial swords. Red mages are also proficient with light armor and the buckler. A red mage can cast red mage spells while wearing light armor and using a buckler without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Also, she may use spell combat while using a buckler. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a red mage wearing medium armor, heavy armor or a shield other than the buckler incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass red mage still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.
Red Magic: A red mage blends arcane and divine magic through an ancient art called red magic. This knowledge is acquired through research and experimentation and not through the power of faith. At 1st level, a red mage chooses one 0-level spell and one 1st level spell from the wizard spell list and adds to her spell list. The spells must be from the evocation school. She adds an additional evocation spell, of any level she can cast, every time she gains a new red mage level.
Magus Arcana (Su): A red mage gains access to the following magus arcana.
Divine Blending: When a red mage selects this arcana, she must select one spell from the cleric spell list that is at least one level lower than the highest magus spell level she can cast. She adds this spell to her spellbook and list of red mage spells known as a red mage spell one level higher than its cleric spell level. She can instead select two spells to add in this way, but both must be at least two levels lower than the highest-level red mage spell she can cast. A red mage can select this magus arcana more than once.
Spell Blending: Instead of choosing spells from the wizard spell list, the red mage selects spells from the magus spell list.
Shields (Ex): At 13th level, a red mage gains proficiency with shields (except tower shields). A red mage can cast magus spells while using a shield without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Additionally, she may use spell combat while using a shield. This ability replaces heavy armor.
Dualcast (Su): At 19th level, the red mage gains the Quickened Magic magus arcana. Unlike the normal ability, the red mage can use it a number of times per day equal to her Intelligence modifier. If she already has Quickened Magic magus arcana, she adds to the number of times per day she can use it. This ability replaces Greater Spell Access.
