Archon (Arcanist; Nephilim)

Nephilim arcanists are masters of a variety of unique magical effects, from conjuring temporary familiars to blasting enemies with a beam strong enough to disintegrate them.

Class Features

An archon has the following class features:

Limitless Pool (Su)

An archon can spend any number of points from her arcane reservoir to increase a spell’s caster level. This can increase the spell’s effect (such as magic missile gaining additional missiles) as if the archon were that level.

This alters arcane reservoir and replaces the arcanist exploit gained at 1st level.

Conjure Bomb (Sp)

At 3rd level, an archon is able to spend 1 point from her arcane reservoir to conjure a bomb and throw it as a standard action. This functions as the alchemist bomb class feature, and the archon’s effective alchemist level is equal to her arcanist level. The archon can only use this ability a number of times per day equal to her level.

This replaces the arcanist exploit gained at 3rd level.

Contingency Plan (Sp)

At 5th level, when an archon is dealt damage, she can spend 1 point from arcane reservoir and cast a prepared mirror image as an immediate action.

At 9th level, she can spend 1 point to cast a prepared dimension door instead.

At 11th level, she can spend 2 points to cast a prepared teleport spell instead.

At 15th level, she can spend 2 points to cast a prepared greater teleport spell instead.

At 19th level, she can spend 3 points to cast a prepared time stop instead.

This replaces the exploits gained at the listed levels.

Forge Bond (Su)

At 7th level, an archon can set aside 1 or more points from her arcane reservoir as a full-round action to create a temporary familiar or bonded item. This functions as the wizard arcane bond class feature, except the archon’s effective wizard level is equal to twice the total points she sets aside to use this ability. If the archon already has arcane bond from another class, this allows her effective levels to stack with the benefits of that class. She cannot use forge bond to gain both a familiar and a bonded item.

The bonded familiar or item is permanent until destroyed or until the archon dismisses it as a free action, at which point she gains back half the points spent to conjure it.

This replaces the arcanist exploit gained at 7th level.

Disintegrate (Sp)

At 13th level, an archon can spend 6 points from her arcane reservoir to cast disintegrate.

This replaces the arcanist exploit gained at 13th level.

Greater Reservoir (Ex)

At 17th level, an archon starts each day with extra points in her arcane reservoir equal to her Charisma modifier.

This replaces the arcanist exploit at 17th level.
