    Default Intelligence-based Spontaneous Casting

    As the title says, are there any good intelligence-based spontaneous casters? It seems that the main rule is charisma-based spellcasters are spontaneous casters, while wisdom and intelligence-based ones study or meditation to prepare spells, but I thought I'd ask anyway.

    Beguiler (PHB2) is a spontaneous casting class that runs off of INT. It is the only one I know of.

    Beguiler is from PHB2. It's an Int based spontaneous caster based on Enchantment and Illusion; it can also qualify for Prestige Bard, from Unearthed Arcana, by itself if that's your thing.

    EDIT: ah, ninja'd

    Duskblades technicaslly a fullcaster, although they only get 6th level spells.
    "It doesn't matter how much you struggle or strive,
    You'll never get out of life alive,
    So please kill yourself and save this land,
    And your last mission is to spread my command,"

    Slightly adapted quote from X-Fusion, Please Kill Yourself

    I was sort of hoping for a class with a more... diverse spell list, but oh well. Thanks guys. Perhaps I'll just make a variant sorcerer class with intelligence as the main spellcasting ability statistic.

    Actually, the Generic Spellcaster is perfect. Thanks!

    keep in mind that it's not really intended for use with non-generic classes, although I don't think anything goes horribly wrong if you do.

    thats what i think would be the best bet
    or a sorcerer who uses INT instead of CHA
    i dont see how that could be more powerful than the sorcerer already is

    There's also the assassin, though it's a half-caster.

    Anyone mention Psions yet? Int-based and very spontaneous.

    I think Trapsmith is Int-based spontaneous as well.

    Where is trapsmith found? I'm just going to guess, RotD or another Kobold-based book?
