Spellbinder
I wanted a spontaneous caster with lots of choices. I decided to balance this by reducing spells per day a lot. (In the spell list and list of bonus feats available, I only listed spells in the player’s handbook. Use the lists given as a guide to whether spells/feats from other sources are available.)

Hit Die: D4.

Class Skills: The spellbinder’s class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (all skills taken individually) (Int), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Sense Motivation (Cha), Speak Language, Spellcraft (Int), and Survival (Wis).

Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) *4.

Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the spellbinder PC class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Spellbinders are skilled with all simple weapons. Spellbinders are not proficient with any type of armor nor with shields.

Casting Style: At 1st level, the spellbinder chooses what ability (Int, Wis, or Cha) functions as the spellbinder’s casting ability. The spellbinder also chooses whether to cast arcane or divine magic. These choices may not be changed once made.
Spellbinders treat spells with a DF component as if the component was M/DF.

Spellbinders casting arcane spells suffer the normal arcane spell failure chance when wearing armor or shields. Spellbinders casting divine spells do not suffer arcane spell failure.

Spells: A spellbinder casts spells, which are drawn from the spellbinder spell list (see below).
To prepare or cast a spell, a spellbinder must have a casting ability (see casting style above) score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a spellbinder’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the spellbinder’s casting ability modifier.
Like other spellcasters, a spellbinder can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Er base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Spellbinder. In addition, e receives bonus spells per day if e has a high casting ability score. When Table: The Spellbinder indicates that the spellbinder gets 0 spells per day of a given spell level, e gains only the bonus spell e would be entitled to based on er characteristic score for that spell level.

The spellbinder’s selection of spells is slightly limited. A spellbinder begins play knowing 12 0th-level spells and 6 1st level spells of your choice. At most new spellbinder levels, e gains one or more new spells, as indicated on Table: The Spellbinder. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a spellbinder knows is not affected by er characteristic casting ability score; the numbers on Table: The Spellbinder are fixed.)
Upon reaching 5th level, and at every third spellbinder level after that (8th, 11th, and so on), a spellbinder can choose to learn a new spell in place of one e already knows. In effect, the spellbinder "loses" the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spell’s level must be the same as that of the spell being exchanged, and it must be at least two levels lower than the highest-level spellbinder spell the spellbinder can cast. A spellbinder may swap only a single spell at any given level, and must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time that he gains new spells known for the level.
As noted above, a spellbinder need not prepare er spells in advance. E can cast any spell e knows at any time, assuming e has not yet used up er allotment of spells per day for the spell’s level.

Feats: At first level, at 2nd level, and at every even numbered level thereafter, the spellbinder gains a feat from the following list:


Augment Summoning
Combat Casting
Eschew Materials
Improved Counterspell
Spell Focus
Greater Spell Focus
Spell Mastery
Spell Penetration
Greater Spell Penetration

Brew Potion
Craft Magic Arms And Armor
Craft Rod
Craft Staff
Craft Wand
Craft Wondrous Item
Forge Ring
Scribe Scroll

Empower Spell
Enlarge Spell
Extend Spell
Heighten Spell
Maximize Spell
Quicken Spell
Silent Spell
Still Spell
Widen Spell


Endurance: At 3rd level, a spellbinder gets Endurance as a Bonus Feat.

Knowledgeable: Starting at 5th level, a spellbinder gets 4 ranks of Knowledge skills per level. These ranks count against the normal limits.

Spell Intensity: At 7th *level, a spellbinder gains a +1 bonus to save DC when casting spellbinder spells. This increases to +2 at 11th level, +3 at 15th level, and +4 at 19th level.

Bonus spells: Starting at 9th *level, those spells designated spellbinder bonus spells (see list below) no longer count towards the spellbinders spells known limit. They are added to the list of spells known as soon as the spellbinder is able to cast the appropriate spell level ( immediately, for spells up to 3rd level). For each spellbinder bonus spell the spellbinder already knows, the spellbinder immediately learns a new spell known of the same level, which does count towards the spells known limit

Spellbinder Bonus Spells


Detect Magic
Magic Weapon
See Invisibility
Dispel Magic
Dismissal
Break Enchantment
Greater Dispel Magic

Tough as old Boots: After attaining 13th level, a spellbinder no longer takes ability score penalties to Constitution for aging. Spellbinders still take aging penalties to Strength and Dexterity and can be magically aged. Any penalties e may have already incurred remain in place.
Spellbane At 17th level, a spellbinder gains spell resistance equal to er current spellbinder level + 10. In order to affect the spellbinder with a spell, a spellcaster must get a result on a caster level check (1d20 + caster level) that equals or exceeds the spellbinder’s spell resistance.

I find your class to be both over-powered, an underpowered at the same time. On the one hand this class is way too powerful to splash, as with only a few levels it gives a great amount of magic, and to spellcasters they can get a lot of bonus quickly.

In the long run however the class losses its usefulness, theres no reason to take this class above level 4 or 5, because at that point the wizards and clerics start getting powerful spells, when the spellbinder is having trouble getting their spells past kobold saves.

The fact is spontaneous casting and a large spell list don't mix. The whole entire point of spontaneous casters is that they can cast any spell they know at the drop of a hat, but they dont know many spells. The closest they ever get to a large spell list is somehting like the warmage, beguiler, and dread necromancer. They have a fairly large spell list, but they dont get to choose their spells, their very specilized.

This class seems lose power at higher levels as stated above. Bards have song, Ranger and Paladins have martial skills to make up for limited spell casting, these guys just have a large spell repetoir.

I envisioned this class as an anti-caster class when i read the title, so maybe you could work in some anti-casting abilities at higher levels to make it more useful if you chose to progress in this class.

Weakening low-level spellbinders while strengthening high-level spellbinders would be fairly easy. I already have ideas as to how. Changing the spells known to start at 6 while increasing at 1 per level instead of 1 per 2 levels, and adding +1 to spell DC at levels 7, 11, 15, and 19 comes to mind. I am not yet sure whether it is needed. More details?

That's two for beefing up high level spellbinders, none so far against. Will get started writing the power increase.

Anti-casting abilities are a possiblity. Changing the name is also a possibility, thought I'm not sure what I would change it to.


Edit: I have now revised the class. I have made the following changes:

1. Fixed tables.
2. Revised Spells Known table.
3. Added spell intensity, bonus spells, spellbane.
4. Added 7th level spells.

Since the revised class was "too long", I have moved the spell list to this post.

I found it in the "From the Playground" compendium sticky and took interest. I guess that explains it. :smallredface:

Is there any way to salvage the table? I really liked the look of this class...
