About Danicka Raburnus
Introducing Danicka Raburnus. A shy but gifted wizard who dreams of being a hero like her deceased mother was. If only she could find the courage to tell Venture-Captain Shiela Heidmarch that she applied to be a Pathfinder, not a maid... (Why did her mother's bonded object have to be a broom..?). But tomorrow's going to be different! Tomorrow she's going to be brave! All she needs is a chance...

Arcane Reservoir (Su): An exploiter wizard gains the arcanist’s arcane reservoir class feature. The exploiter wizard uses her wizard level as her arcanist level for determining how many arcane reservoir points she gains at each level. This ability replaces arcane bond.
An (exploiter wizard) has an innate pool of magical energy that she can draw upon to fuel her (exploiter) exploits and enhance her spells. Her arcane reservoir can hold a maximum amount of magical energy equal to 3 + the (wizard’s) level. Each day, when preparing spells, her arcane reservoir fills with raw magical energy, gaining a number of points equal to 3 + 1/2 her (wizard) level. Any points she had from the previous day are lost. The arcane reservoir can never hold more points than the maximum amount noted above; points gained in excess of this total are lost.
Points from the arcane reservoir are used to fuel (exploiter exploits). In addition, the (wizard) can expend 1 point from her arcane reservoir as a free action whenever she casts a (wizard) spell. If she does, she can choose to increase the caster level by 1 or increase the spell’s DC by 1. She can expend no more than 1 point from her reservoir on a given spell in this way.
Exploiter Exploit : At 1st level and every 4 levels thereafter, the exploiter wizard gains a single arcanist exploit. The exploiter wizard uses her wizard level as her arcanist level for determining the effects and DCs of her arcanist exploits. This ability replaces arcane school.
By bending and sometimes even breaking the rules of magic, the (wizard) learns to exploit gaps and exceptions in the laws of magic. Some of these exploits allow her to break down various forms of magic, adding their essence to her arcane reservoir. An exploit cannot be selected more than once. Once an exploit has been selected, it cannot be changed. Most exploits require the (wizard) to expend points from her arcane reservoir to function. Unless otherwise noted, the saving throw DC for an exploit is equal to 10 + 1/2 the (wizard’s) level + the (wizard’s) Charisma modifier.
Energy Shield (Su): The (wizard) can protect herself from energy damage as a standard action by expending 1 point from her arcane reservoir. She must pick one energy type and gains resistance 10 against that energy type for 1 minute per (wizard) level. This protection increases by 5 for every 5 levels the (wizard) possesses (up to a maximum of 30 at 20th level).
Boon Companion (feat): The abilities of your animal companion or familiar are calculated as though your class were 4 levels higher, to a maximum effective druid level equal to your character level. If you have more than one animal companion or familiar, choose one to receive this benefit. If you dismiss or lose an animal companion or familiar that has received this benefit, you can apply this feat to the replacement creature. (1/4 extra levels used)
Cantrips: She can prepare a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells, each day. These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.
Inspiration (Ex): 5 points/day
Tireless Logic (trait): Your curious mind figures out even the most complex problems. Once per day when you make an Intelligence-based skill check or ability check, you can roll twice and take the better result
Volatile Conduit (trait): You discovered a secret that enhances the energy of some spells. Once per day as a free action, when you cast a spell that deals acid, cold, electricity, or fire damage, you can enhance that spell with volatile energy. When you do, it deals 1d4 points of extra damage of the same energy type.
 Celestial Lycanthropy: You have received a blessing from the azata Luvyire that has imbued you with a spark of celestial energy, which will transform you into a celestial werewolf when the time is right. You can check the box that precedes this boon to gain a portion of that power, gaining resistance 5 to acid, cold, and electricity for 1 hour. This boon will provide additional benefits in a future scenario.
Grobaras’s Gloryhounding: You now own a ribbon and a commemorative certificate for services to the city of Magnimar, both of which falsely claim that Lord-Mayor Grobaras hired you to assist the city. If you destroy these objects, cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet.
Initiate's Edge (Welcome to Pathfinder) - Elixir of Renewal - You gain a special elixir that you can consume as if it were a potion in order to restore 2d8+5 hit points as well as 1d4 points of one type of ability damage. You can use the potion only once, even if the user is under the effects of alchemical allocation or a similar effect that would allow one to benefit from a potion multiple times.
Elixir of Treasure Seeking: One of the special treasures you recovered while seeking fame and fortune was a flask of liquid that glowed softly with golden light. Drinking this elixir gives you the ability to find treasure in unlikely places, granting you a +2 competence bonus on Appraise and Perception checks for duration of an entire adventure. In addition, if you earn less than the maximum gold piece reward during an adventure, your sharpened senses lead you to a small cache of gold and gems that increases your gold earned by 150 gp (up to the maximum reward given in the adventure). When you use this boon, cross it of your Chronicle sheet.
Infiltrator: Your experiences during the heist have taught you to work together more effectively with your allies to cover your tracks. Before rolling a Stealth check, choose one other ally who is also rolling Stealth for the same circumstance. After rolling the check, you and this ally both use the higher of your two results, including all bonuses and modifiers. When you use this boon, cross it off your Chronicle sheet.
Inner Struggle: Your exposure to a mindscape has given you a unique way to fight off psychic magic. When you fail a saving throw against a mind-affecting compulsion effect, you can cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet in order to delay the effect and be stunned until the end of your next turn instead as you retreat into your own personal mindscape to fight off this hostile magic. At the end of your turn, you can attempt a new saving throw against the effect to end it. If you succeed, the effect ends. If you fail the save, the original effect overpowers your mental defenses and resumes.
Master of Shadows: You gain a one-time +5 circumstance bonus on any knowledge check concerning the Shadow Plane and shadow magic. When this bonus is used, cross this boon off your Chronicle.
Miracle Worker Once per adventure you may use the lay on hands class feature as though you were a paladin whose level equals the number of goals you have completed.
Monument’s Blessing: By sanctifying several of Magnimar’s monuments, you have created a small enduring link with the sacred forces that give the city’s monuments their power. You can perform a particular action tied to one of the five monuments below and attempt a skill check to gain a particular benefit. If you succeed at the check, gain the listed benefit for 24 hours, and then cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet.
New Recruit (J. Dacilane): Your team of Pathfinders sponsored J. to join the Pathfinder Society. In exchange, she is eager to assist you on one of your future missions. You can direct J. to cast a spell from the spiritualist list (Pathfinder RPG Occult Adventures 76) as a standard action. The spell’s level can be up to one third of your character level (minimum 0). J.’s caster level is equal to your character level – 3 (minimum 2), and her Wisdom score is 17. J. is a noncombatant, and she is considered to be in your square for the purpose of determining the origin of her spell. When you use this boon, cross it off your Chronicle Sheet.
Pleasure Doing Business: As thanks for your assistance, Ulisha offers to sell you Silverhex at a lower price: 6,326 gp. You can increase Silverhex’s enhancement bonus or apply other weapon special abilities, but you always calculate the weapon’s effective final price as though it were 2,000 gp lower (e.g. Silverhex costs 16,326 gp as a +2 spell storing alchemical silver sickle—not 18,326 gp).
Purifier: When attempting a caster level check to remove a curse, disease or other condition, increase your effective caster level by half the number of goals you have completed (rounded down). You can also apply this benefit when others attempt caster level checks to remove such conditions from you.
Ragdya’s Blessing: Due to the respect you showed to the Vudran god Ragdya’s sacred animal, you have received that deity’s blessing. You may cross this boon off your Chronicle sheet to gain a climb speed of 20 feet for 1d4 rounds. For 1 round after this boon expires, if you would fall due to failing a Climb check, you fall slowly as if affected by feather fall (CL 1st) so long as you remain adjacent to a wall or other solid surface.
Revolutionary Bluster: You gain a one-time +5 circumstance bonus on any Disguise or Bluff check against someone from Galt. When this bonus is used, cross this boon off your Chronicle.
[x][x][ ] Student of the Twelve Rites: You have recovered several of the tablets of the Twelve Rites from the monk Shinri and her agents. The blasphemous knowledge contained within these ever-shifting tablets is dangerous to ponder for too long, but you can tap into it briefly to learn Shinri’s abilities. You can use this knowledge to replace some of your own abilities with Shinri’s. You can check a box before this boon to retrain one of your feats into one of Shinri’s feats using the retraining rules from Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Campaign at a reduced cost. Retraining into one of the following feats takes 2 days, rather than 5: Combat Reflexes, Dodge, Eschew Materials, Improved Unarmed Strike, Mantis Style, Mantis Wisdom, Sorcerous Strike, Stunning Fist, or Weapon Focus. If you are a spontaneous spellcaster, you can check a box before this boon to retrain one of your spells known into one of Shinri’s spells using the retraining rules from Pathfinder RPG Ultimate Campaign at a reduced cost. Retraining into one of the following spells takes 1 day per spell level rather than 2: dispel magic, feather fall, levitate, mirror image, or spider climb.

Danicka was born to a hero. Her mother, Portia Raburnus, was a wizard of great renown who helped saved Magnimar not just once, but on three occasions. Danicka has always wanted to be just like her mother, and grew up studying the arcane arts. Her mother passed away five years ago, right before Danicka began her formal training at the local magical academy, Stone of Seers. Danicka always keeps her mother’s arcane bonded item with her—a highly decorative quarterstaff that looks remarkably like a broom. She had hoped to use the broom as her own arcane bonded item, but could never manage to make it work.
Danicka did well in school, but despite her academic achievements she was constantly overlooked—for Danicka was ordinary looking, and incredibly shy. Regrettably forgettable. She’s recently graduated and set out to finally prove herself brave and bold! A hero, like her mother! She marched right into the local Pathfinder Lodge and demanded a job. Unfortunately, her demand came out a nervous whisper and they hired her as a maid. But, sweeping the floors used by bolder souls with her mother’s broom isn’t enough for Danicka Raburnus! She’s going to prove herself one day! Maybe after she’s done cleaning up the common room…
Appearance and Personality:
Danicka is an awkward, slip of a mage. She’s rather ordinary looking. She has pale skin, dark brown hair, and brown eyes. She has freckles and plain spectacles. Her hair is average length and hangs limp and messy down her back. Her robes are nice but in drab colours, and thought she’s not ugly, she’s certainly not pretty. She’s forgettable at best and unnoticed at worst. Most people don’t even remember Portia Raburnus had a daughter.
Danicka is incredibly shy. She speaks rarely, and when she does its in a whisper. She’s constantly trying to work up the courage to be louder, to make friends, and to do something, but her attempts at friendship always come out in awkward stuttering bursts, and her attempts to speak her mind end up with her randomly yelling something (and then losing the courage to finish). She’s easily embarrassed and was bullied on occasion in school (when her classmates could be bothered to remember she was there).
Danicka is very smart and quite clever. She’s a naturally gifted wizard and loves to learn new things. She knows she’s a young woman of many flaws and is trying desperately to change. She wants to be brave and bold, but has yet to break out of her shell and really be herself.
Danicka’s about to get her chance. She’s about to be caught up in something bigger than herself—something exciting! For Danicka has finally worked up the nerve to speak to Venture Captain Shiela Heidmarch about her Pathfinder training. And her life is about to change forever!
