Path of the Black Flag- Arcanist

Arcanists are already rebels and innovators of the magical world, mixing the raw power of sorcerers with the lore of wizard, giving no thought to established practices and traditions. This makes the jump from Arcanist to Anarchist Arcanist somewhat short.

The Anarchist Arcanist archetype is the Liberation Adept. For Liberation Adepts, there is no difference from using the study of magic to free herself from the shackles of ignorance, and using the power of magic to free the world from the shackles of oppression.

Liberation Adept

Alternate Class Features

Metamagic Flexibility– At 1st level, the Liberation Adept may take a move action to gain the benefit of a metamagic feat she doesn’t possess, essentially working out how to ‘hack’ the spell on the fly. She must meet all the feats prerequisites. She may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 +1/2 her arcanist level (minimum 1.) The casting and maintaining of a single spell count as one use. The brawler can use this ability again before the duration expires in order to replace the previous metamagic feat with another choice. Liberation Adepts must be able to cast spells of the increased level given by a metamagic feat in order to use that feat. She may expend an arcane reservoir point to make the application of any metamagic feats to any one spell a free action.

At 6th level, a Liberation Adept may gain the benefit of two metamagic feats at the same time. She may select one feat as a swift action or two feats as a move action. She may use one of these feats to meet a prerequisite of the second feat; doing so means that she cannot replace a feat currently fulfilling another’s prerequisite without also replacing those feats that require it. Each individual feat selected counts toward her daily uses of this ability. The Liberation Adept must be able to cast spells of the combined level of both metamagic feats in order to use this ability with those feats.

At 10th level, a brawler can use this ability to gain the benefit of three metamagic at the same time. She may select one feat as a free action, two feats as a swift action, or three feats as a move action. She may use one of the feats to meet a prerequisite of the second and third feats, and use the second feat to meet a prerequisite of the third feat. Each individual feat selected counts toward her daily uses of this ability. Liberation Adepts must be able to cast spells of the combined level of each metamagic feat combined in order to use this ability with those feats.

At 12th level, a brawler can use this ability to gain the benefit of one metamagic as an immediate action or three metamagic feats as a swift action. Each individual feat selected counts toward her daily uses of this ability. Liberation Adepts must be able to cast spells of the combined level of each metamagic feat combined in order to use this ability with those feats.

At 20th level, a brawler can use this ability to gain the benefit of any number of metamagic feats as a swift action. Each feat selected counts toward her daily uses of this ability. Liberation Adepts must be able to cast spells of the combined level of each metamagic feat combined in order to use this ability with those feats.

This replaces the exploits at 1st and 5th level.

Spell Resistance- At 11th level, the Liberation Adept gain an innate spell resistance equal to ½ their level, rounded down. Like other forms of spell resistance, this resistance may be lowered voluntarily. The Adept may extend this resistance to allies within 30’ of the Adept. The resistance score for the allies is ½ of the score of the Adept, or 1/4 the Adept’s level, rounded down. This ability relies on the Adept to maintain it. If she is killed, unconscious, or incapacitated, the resistance vanishes. This replaces the arcane exploit at 11th level.
