Wand Magic (Su)

A clockwork mage’s wand crystal allows it to cast spells as if using a spell trigger magic item (CL 9th). The arcane school of the wand crystal determines a clockwork mage’s spells. They cast 1st-level spells at will, 2nd-level spells 3 times per day, and 3rd level spells 1 time per day.


Environment any land
Organization solitary
Treasure none

These constructs are the pinnacle of clockwork inventions. An ingenious combination of mechanical devices and magical conduits allows a clockwork mage to channel the power of a wand into a variety of arcane powers. They often serve powerful arcane spellcasters, or as unflinching and unquestioning casters to those who wants the benefit of spells without ego or free thought.

A humanoid figure of mithral and steel, a clockwork mage has large crystal ball filled with shifting vapors for a head. It stands 7 feet tall.
