At 1st level, the card caster gains Deadly Dealer as a bonus feat, even if he does not meet the prerequisites. A card caster can invest cards with enough magic to deal lethal damage even without the Arcane Strike feat so long as he has at least 1 point in his arcane pool.
At 1st level, the magus gains a reservoir of mystical arcane energy that he can draw upon to fuel his powers and enhance his weapon. This arcane pool has a number of points equal to 1/2 his magus level (minimum 1) + his Intelligence modifier. The pool refreshes once per day when the magus prepares his spells.
At 1st level, a magus can expend 1 point from his arcane pool as a swift action to grant any weapon he is holding a +1 enhancement bonus for 1 minute. For every four levels beyond 1st, the weapon gains another +1 enhancement bonus, to a maximum of +5 at 17th level. These bonuses can be added to the weapon, stacking with existing weapon enhancement to a maximum of +5. Multiple uses of this ability do not stack with themselves.
At 5th level, these bonuses can be used to add any of the following weapon properties: dancing, flaming, flaming burst, frost, icy burst, keen, shock, shocking burst, speed, or vorpal.
Beginning at 2nd level, a card caster can invest a single thrown weapon with a single touch or ranged spell as part of the spell's normal casting time. The spell must target a single creature, and the spell's range changes to match the thrown weapon's range increment. This ability otherwise functions identically to spellstrike, except it can only be applied to thrown ranged weapons instead of melee attacks.
Denario Vasquez was born in Korvosa's lower class.
A smart kid with a decent common sense and ambition to get up the ladder in life, Denario always looked for ways to achieve that goal, or at least become a bit wealthier from it. His spare time he spent playing games in inns and on the streets. Yet it was that playing games that got him to where he is today, for both good and as current, worse.
As a kid he developed a taste for competitive darts and proved reasonably well with it.
"I can hit that red circle i think."
Contrary to his ambitions, he had a little sister named Emily, 10 years younger. He did care for her, despite her following him around, much to their parents' dismay.
Vendetta vs the crime lord
Denario was busy one afternoon with the finals of a game. His sister had eluded their parents again, she'd likely grow up a good sneak. Just as Denario had eliminated another opponent, a friend of his came in.
<Denario, man hey listen to me.>
"What's up? I'm almost through with this last guy and..."
<Man, your little sis appeared again and got snatched away.>
Denario's eyes widened..."What? Who?"
<This is the part you're not gonna like man. Remember that rumoured crimelord? He's got her.....a guy matched the man's "recruiter" description.>
The last guy was rude; <Oi, you gonna finish the game or what?>
Denario looked at him furiously. Holding a chip, he flicked it at the guy, leaving a red imprint on his face.
It was the first time Denario ever walked out of a cardgame.
Denario likes a challenge and hates cheats. Unless it's for the greater good, then he'd pull a thing or two. He's uncomfortable around bureaucracy, despite working for an institute like the magic academy. Picking on kids ticks him off. He's a casual guy, but he wouldn't shed a tear over stepping on a hand for the sake of saving a kid.
