Not sure how possible this is. Friend has a concept from some book he is reading. Person warped by magic influence during the mage wars, however he is not actually a mage himself.
So he wants lots of spell-like and/or supernatural abilities, without actually being a spell caster. I don't think he even cares what the Sp or Su abilities are, he just wants as many as he can get.
The only things I could immediately think of are:
- Eldritch Heritage and VMC both give some abilities.
- A few races have a spell like ability.
- Seems like I can remember feats that give an orison as a Sp, but I'm not sure of that.
- iirc Monk and Ninja can get a fair number of Sp powered by their Ki (haven't looked at these in a long time).
Anything I'm not remembering? Other suggestions?
An adaptve shifter gets a lot of self-only Su abilities. If your friend has a 'mutant' concept it fits pretty well.
On the other hand a kineticist does the 'I can't believe they're not a mage' shtick well. The base kineticist is elemental themed, a terrakineticist picks up magic from the world around them.
If you want an unthemed bunch of abilities an invested regent qinggong monk can have a lot of them - more distinct abilities than a kineticist. Actually turning that into a useful character may take a bit of work.
For a campaign which won't reach high levels a rogue of the gillman race can race to 3rd level Sp abilities by 5th level. They can't get higher level abilities than that though I suppose with the sylvan trickster archetype hexes from that point could broaden them.
