An enlightened bloodrager unlocks a unique method of casting her violent, rage-fueled spells. As a result, an enlightened bloodrager’s magic looks, feels, and functions quite differently from the magic of other bloodragers. In many cases, when an enlightened bloodrager encounters a more traditional bloodrager, the meeting is laced with tension and suspicion. The enlightened bloodrager is, of course, well aware of the other bloodrager’s tendency toward violence, and the other bloodrager is often unnerved by the calm and reasoned mannerisms of his enlightened counterpart. Many bloodragers even take offense at this demeanor, interpreting the enlightened bloodrager as a pawn of intellectuals or as having dishonored her ancestry or traditions by abandoning emotion and wrath. As one can well expect, such confrontations rarely result in lasting friendships!
An enlightened bloodrager’s unusually sophisticated outlook on the relationship between magic and emotional outbursts allows her to cast an expanded array of spells. She gains the ability to know and cast 0-level spells, which are cast like any other spells, but don’t consume spell slots and can be used again. At 4th level, she gains a number of 0-level spells known equal to those of a bard whose level is 3 lower than her bloodrager level. She selects these 0-level spells from the druid’s list of 0-level spells.
At 4th level, the enlightened bloodrager gains one 1st-level druid spell as a bonus spell known. At 7th level, she gains one 2nd-level druid spell as a bonus spell known. At 10th level, she gains one 3rd-level druid spell as a bonus spell known. At 13th level, she gains one 4th-level druid spell as a bonus spell known.
The bloodrager treats any druid spells she takes with this ability as bloodrager spells for the purposes of other abilities, and adds them to her bloodrager class spell list. At 8th level and every 3 spell levels thereafter, she can swap out these spells using the normal rules for swapping out at a spell. If she chooses to swap out one of her bonus druid spells, she must replace it with a druid spell of the same level. Any swapped-out spells are removed from her bloodrager class spell list.
Enlightened Bloodrage (Su)
At 4th level, while bloodraging, an enlightened bloodrager can still use Intelligence-, Dexterity-, and Charisma-based skills and can use abilities that require patience or concentration. This ability alters bloodrage and replaces the bloodline power gained at 4th level.
See pages 124-125 for details on this series of feats.
At 8th level, an enlightened bloodrager gains the bloodline power normally granted at 1st level. At 12th level she gains the bloodline power normally granted at 4th level, at 16th level she gains the bloodline power normally granted at 8th level, and at 20th level she gains the bloodline power normally gained at 12th level. She still uses her full bloodrager level when making level-based calculations in regard to these abilities.
