Eldritch Scion is an archetype of the Magus class in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Unlike typical magi, eldritch scions do not study tomes of magic or spend time learning to combine martial arts and magical skills. Rather, eldritch scions find that their spells and abilities come to them instinctively.

Spell Casting[edit | edit source]

An eldritch scion casts arcane spells drawn from the magus spell list. He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time. To learn or cast a spell, an eldritch scion must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell’s level. The DC for a saving throw against an eldritch scion’s spell is 10 + the spell’s level + the eldritch scion’s Charisma modifier. An eldritch scion can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is the same as a bard of the same level. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Charisma score.

An eldritch scion’s selection of spells is limited. He has the same number of spells known as a bard of the same level, and can choose new spells to replace old ones at 5th level and every 3 class levels after that, just as a bard does. See the bard for more information on swapping spells known.

This ability replaces the magus’s spells class feature.

Eldritch Pool[edit | edit source]

An eldritch scion gains an eldritch pool of personal magical energy, equal to 1/2 his magus level (minimum 1) + his Charisma modifier. As a swift action, he can spend a point of eldritch energy to enter a state of mystical focus for 2 rounds. This allows him to use abilities from his bloodline. At 4th level, an eldritch scion can also use his eldritch pool as an arcane pool, gaining all the benefits listed with the magus’s arcane pool class feature.

Additionally, any magus’s class feature or spell from the magus spell list that normally uses a calculation based on Intelligence is instead based on Charisma for an eldritch scion. For example, an eldritch scion with the arcane accuracy magus arcana grants himself an insight bonus on attacks equal to his Charisma bonus, not his Intelligence bonus. This has no effect on the eldritch scion’s skills or skill points.

This ability replaces Arcane Pool, and abilities that modify arcane pool also modify eldritch pool.

Bloodlines[edit | edit source]

Eldritch scions may select a bloodline, like sorcerers may. This ability replaces spell recall.

At 3rd level, and every two levels thereafter, an eldritch scion learns an additional spell, derived from her bloodline. These spells are in addition to the number of spells given on new levels. These spells cannot be exchanged for different spells at higher levels.

At 7th level, and every six levels thereafter, an eldritch scion receives one bonus feat, chosen from a list specific to each bloodline. The eldritch scion must meet the prerequisites for these bonus feats.
