Class Expansions - Love for the Universalist


Brand: Interjection Games

Format: PDF

Sometimes, all you need to have fun with a class for another few months is a few new ideas to tinker around with. Class Expansions is a series of lightweight supplements for The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game that takes a base class and offers alternative class features that, handily enough, each fit on one page or less.

Following in this vein, Class Expansions - Love for the Universalist introduces four new Universalist focused schools that work to dispel the Universalist's current status as the choice for wizards who flunked out of magic school.

Arcane Researcher

  • Focused Research: Researching new spells becomes cheaper and faster as you level.
  • Inventor's Recall: You can prepare spells you invented without having them written down.
  • Optimization through Familiarity: Spells you invent get +1 to their DCs when you cast them.

Beastbonded Arcanist

  • Spellmarked Familiar: You can inscribe a limited number of spells onto your familiar, thus making it a backup spellbook.
  • Familiar Assistance: Your familiar gets bonuses to Aid Other checks targeting you.
  • Improved Empathy: Your awareness of your familiar makes it so you and your familiar cannot be flanked unless you both are flanked.

Bookbonded Arcanist

  • Dear Spellbook,: Your spellbook is your arcane bond, has infinite pages, but can only cast a spell written in it as your bonus spell.
  • Spellbook Security: You get bonuses to the spells sepia snake sigil and explosive runes when they are cast on your spellbook.
  • Acquire Spellbook: You can cause your spellbook to materialize in your hand from wherever it lay.


  • Artful Incantations: You add your Dex modifier to your Spellcraft DCs to identify your spells.
  • Insightful Gestures: If you take a full-round action to cast a spell, it gets +1 to its caster level.
  • Artful Gestures: Your insightful gestures also adds +1 to the DC.
