Sorcerer Abilities


Abyssal Bloodline

Generations ago, a demon spread its filth into your heritage. While it does not manifest in all of your kin, for you it is particularly strong. You might sometimes have urges to chaos or evil, but your destiny (and alignment) is up to you. While some would say that you are possessed, you know better. The demonic influence in your blood grows as you gain power.

Bonus Feats of the Abyssal Bloodline: Augment Summoning, Bull Rush, Cleave, Empower Spell, Great Fortitude, Power Attack, Skill Focus (Lore: Religion), Sunder Armor.


Grow Claws

At 1st level, you can grow claws as a free action. These claws are treated as natural weapons, allowing you to make two claw attacks as a full attack using your full base attack bonus. These attacks deal 1d4 points of damage each (1d3 if you are Small) plus your Strength modifier. At 5th level, these claws are considered magic weapons for the purpose of overcoming DR. At 7th level, the damage increases by one step to 1d6 points of damage (1d4 if you are Small). At 11th level, these claws become flaming weapons, each dealing an additional 1d6 points of fire damage on a successful hit. You can use your claws for a number of rounds per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Additional Spell

At 3rd level, and every two levels thereafter, a sorcerer learns an additional spell, derived from her bloodline. These spells are in addition to the number of spells given at new levels. Unholy Aura: A malevolent darkness surrounds the subjects, protecting them from attacks, granting them resistance to spells cast by good creatures, and weakening good creatures when they strike the subjects. This abjuration has four effects. First, each warded creature gains a +4 deflection bonus to AC and a +4 resistance bonus on saves. Unlike the effect of protection from good, this benefit applies against all attacks, not just against attacks by good creatures. 
Second, each warded creature gains spell resistance 25 against good spells and spells cast by good creatures. Third, the abjuration protects the recipient from possession and mental influence, just as protection from good does. Finally, if a good creature succeeds on a melee attack against a warded creature, the offending attacker takes 1d6 points of Strength damage (Fortitude negates).


Each sorcerer has a source of magic somewhere in her heritage that grants her spells, bonus feats, an additional class skill, and other special abilities. This source can represent a blood relation or an extreme event involving a creature somewhere in the family's past. For example, a sorcerer might have a dragon as a distant relative or her grandfather might have signed a terrible contract with a devil. Regardless of the source, this influence manifests in a number of ways as the sorcerer gains levels. A sorcerer must pick one bloodline upon taking her first level of sorcerer. Once made, this choice cannot be changed.

Filled with magical power that screams for release, sorcery is not so much a calling as a blessing — or a curse. For some sorcerers, this arcane birthright manifests in subtle and carefully controlled ways, assisting in their manipulation of others or the pursuit of lofty goals. For others, it is wild and unpredictable, the primal and explosive lashing out of a power greater than themselves.

At 3rd level, and every two levels thereafter, a sorcerer learns an additional spell, derived from her bloodline. These spells are in addition to the number of spells given at new levels. These spells cannot be exchanged for different swells at hieher levels.


Sorcerer Proficiencies

Sorcerers are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield. Armor interferes with a sorcerer's gestures, which can cause her spells with somatic components to fail.

Bloodline Feat Selection

At 7th level, and every six levels thereafter, a sorcerer receives one bonus feat, chosen from a list specific to each bloodline. The sorcerer must meet the prerequisites for these bonus feats.

Detect Magic

Detects magical auras of active spells or artifacts (or of those that were active recently). Can identify the school of magic to which the spell belongs. Used in dialogues

Demon Resistances 

At 3rd level, you gain resist electricity 5 and a +2 bonus on saving throws made against poison. At 9th level, your resistance to electricity increases to 10 and your bonus on poison saving throws increases to +4.


Demonic Might

At 20th level, the power of the Abyss flows through you. You gain immunity to electricity and poison. You also gain resistance to acid 10, cold 10, and fire 10.

Abyssal Bloodline Arcana

Whenever you cast a spell of the summoning subschool, the creatures summoned gain DR/good equal to 1/2 your sorcerer level (minimum 1). This does not stack with any DR the creature might have.

Additional Skill

Additional class skill from the Abyssal bloodline.

Strength Of The Abyss

At 9th level, you gain a +2 inherent bonus to your Strength. This bonus increases to +4 at 13th level, and to +6 at 17th level




Sorcerer can cast a number of cantrips, or 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.

Sorcerer Bonus Feat

At 1st level, a sorcerer gains a bonus feat. At each such opportunity, she can choose a metamagic feat, spell focus feat, or any other spellcaster feat. The sorcerer must still meet all prerequisites for a bonus feat, including caster level minimums.

Added Summonings

At 15th level, whenever you cast a summoning spell that conjures more than one creature, add one to the total number of creatures summoned.


You gain a pair of wings that grant a +3 dodge bonus to AC against melee attacks and an immunity to ground based effects, such as difficult terrain.


Bloodline - Nine Tailed Heir

Stories often tell of kitsune with multiple tails, but not many realize that fewer than one kitsune in every thousand has this potential, and those that do usually have a magical quirk in their blood or have been blessed by their race's deific matron. As a result, most that harness the mystic powers of their newfound tails often gain sorcerous powers, becoming nine-tailed heirs.

Magic Tail

At 3rd level and every 2 levels thereafter, a nine-tailed heir gains Magical Tail as a bonus feat. If the nine-tailed heir already has nine tails, each additional time the feat is taken, the sorcerer gains one additional daily use of the lowest level Magical Tail ability not already affected by this effect. 

Overwhelming Penetration

At 1st level, overwhelming mage gains a +1 bonus on all caster level checks made to overcome a target's spell resistance. This bonus increases by +1 for every 6 levels thereafter. 

Overwhelming Spell

At 6th level, overwhelming mage gains ability to sacrifice a spell slot of 3rd level of higher to increase the saving throw DC of the next spell he casts during next two rounds, equal to one third of the sacrificed spell level.
