Sorcerer Creature (CR +1, +2, or +3)

Sorcerer creatures can use a variety of powerful spells and abilities to devastate their foes. Select a sorcerer creature’s bloodline when the template is added. A sorcerer creature’s CR increases by 2 if the creature has 8 or more HD, and it increases by 3 if the creature has 14 or more HD.

Spellcasting: Simple class templates that grant the ability to cast spells as a member of the class on which the template is based only grant spells for the three highest spell levels the creature has access to. If the creature casts all of the spells of its higher levels, you can keep the combat challenging by adding lower-level spells—denoted by a double dagger (‡)—but no more than two for any given spell level.
