Rather than attempt to master all runic magic, archivists instead focus on a specific script design. An archivist must decide his study at 1st level. Choosing a study grants a number of abilities to the archivist, which are obtained at 2nd, 8th, 14th, and 20th levels. The abilities granted are described in each study’s entry. An archivist’s bonus scripts known at 1st, 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th levels must have the same design that he chooses to study. The archivist’s chosen study also determines his study synergy ability.

The DC to save against any special abilities granted by an archivist study is equal to 10 + 1/2 the archivist’s level + his Intelligence modifier, unless otherwise noted.

Focused Studies

Archivists must all choose a study of rune magic to focus their abilities. Some choose to focus their study even further, gaining a more specialized set of abilities. Archivists that choose a focused study gain their normal class features, such as bonus feats and altered script, but the focused study changes one or more of the abilities granted by their chosen study. An archivist must take all of the replacement abilities associated with his focused study. Once a focused study is chosen, it cannot be changed.

Each study listed at right includes links to its associated focused studies.
