Cinder Adept

Among the Sun Clan’s most noted champions are those who can tame the flames and bend them to their will.

These kineticists are skilled riders, able to wield both weapons and fire with deadly skill.

Class Skills

A cinder adept gains Handle Animal and Ride as class skills, but does not gain Stealth and Use Magic Device as class skills.

This alters the kineticist’s class skills.

Fire Focus (Su)

When a cinder adept gains elemental focus, they must select fire as their chosen element.

When they gain the expanded element class feature, they must select their primary element of fire and do not learn to use a new element.

This alters elemental focus and expanded element.

This doesn’t prevent this archetype from being used with other archetypes that alter elemental focus or expanded element so long as they still allow the kineticist to choose fire as their primary element and expanded elements.

Galloping Siphon (Su)

When a cinder adept gathers power while mounted, they and their mount gain fire resistance 5 for a number of rounds equal to the total value of the burn cost they reduce. This resistance increases to fire resistance 10 at 11th level. The cinder adept and their mount lose this resistance if they dismount before the duration ends. In addition, a cinder adept gains Mounted Combat as a bonus feat and a +1 bonus on concentration checks due to riding.

This bonus increases by +1 at 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter (up to a maximum of +6 at 20th level).

This alters gather power and replaces the infusion gained at 1st level.


At 4th level, a cinder adept gains a loyal mount. This ability functions like the druid’s animal companion ability (as described in the nature bond class feature), except that the cinder adept always gains a horse or pony (though they can gain additional options at the GM’s discretion) and their effective druid level is equal to their cinder adept level -3.

This replaces the utility wild talents gained at 4th, 8th, and 12th levels.
