I'm looking for templates/options for either PCs or NPCs for an upcoming campaign, and can't find exactly what I'm looking for. I can find a Lycanthrope for mammals and Entothrope for insects, but can't find rebuild rules or a template for birds. Anyone know of something that would fit, or should I just attempt to use a modified lycanthrope version?
I've searched high and low for an answer on this and can't find a conclusive ruling.
Does Wealthy Dabbler allow you to cast Arcane spells or does it function like a Spell-like Ability?
Wealthy Dabbler (Regional): You study magic at one
I'm asking because I would like to know if this would qualify for Arcane Strike or not. If it does grant the ability to cast arcane spells, great, if not, just ok. Trying to find a solid resolution to this question.
I get the part about the regular ranger spell list, I am more asking in regards to the Patron spells that get added to his list.
Using the agility patron as an example, the first 4 are as follows.
Agility: 2nd—jump, 4th—cat’s grace, 6th—haste, 8th—freedom of movement
haste does not appear on the ranger spell list, while jump is ranger 1, cat's grace is ranger 2, and freedom of movement is ranger 4.
Do the spells get added in a similar manner to how it is done with a witch? at 2nd caster level a witch could use jump from her agility patron, even though it isn't on the regular witch spell list? Do all 4 just get added to the list? Or is there a progression as to when they can be used? The way it is worded is confusing me on this.
I'm curious as to what level the spells the witchguard gains are at? does he gain them all at once and can cast them if prepared normally? What about spells that don't fall onto the ranger spell list? Are they cast at his current level? Or are they added as a 1st, 2nd, 3rd and 4th level spell to his list, in the order they appear?
I'm somewhat new to PF and want to wrap my head around this as I want to play this archetype.
Quoted for context.
A witchguard learns something of arcane magic from the witches he defends. At 4th level, when a witchguard gains the ability to cast spells, he must also select a patron, as the witch class feature. This patron is usually the same as the patron of the witch he is sworn to protect, but the witchguard may choose any patron. The witchguard adds the first four spells from his patron’s spell list to his ranger spell list. The witchguard cannot cast patron spells of a level he is unable to cast.
