Samurai Spherelord (Legendary Samurai Archetype)

Note: This archetype uses rules from Spheres of Power.

With wildly diverse and unique combat styles, samurai spherelords are true mavericks among their peers. These open-minded warrior-mystics forsake traditional samurai martial arts, instead picking and choosing what to learn from any sources available to them.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies

The samurai spherelord is proficient with all simple weapons and light armor. In addition, if this is this character’s first level in any class, they may select a martial tradition of their choice.

This modifies proficiencies.


The samurai spherelord may combine spheres and talents to create magical effects. The samurai spherelord is considered a Low-Caster and uses Charisma as their casting ability modifier. (Note: All casters gain 2 bonus talents and may select a casting tradition the first time they gain the casting class feature.)

This replaces challenge, iaijutsu techniques, and kiai arts.

Spell Pool

The samurai spherelord gains a small reservoir of energy they can call on to create truly wondrous effects, called a spell pool. This pool contains a number of spell points equal to their level + their Charisma modifier (minimum 1). This pool replenishes once per day after roughly 8 hours of rest.

Blended Training (Ex)

A samurai spherelord gains a combat or magic talent every time they gain a level. The samurai spherelord uses their casting ability modifier as their practitioner modifier.
