The Magus Class Preview


This is a free preview of the Magus class. You can find the full version of the class, including three additional eldritch societies, four NPC stat blocks, and twenty new magic items here.

Combining martial prowess and magical power, the magi are spell swords, arcane archers, mystic marauders, and sorcerous sentinels. Every magus pledges themself to an eldritch society that inducts them into the magic arts and trains them in war. This versatile training means that magi are versatile adventurers and unpredictable foes.

Every magus is a member of an eldritch society. Eldritch Societies included in the preview version of the Magus class include: the Arcane Order, Primordial Seal, and Sylvan Circle.

You can also pick up a Magus class specific character sheet made by our very own Nathanaël Roux

Hi there, I was just looking at this class and have a question (for now). I'm having trouble understanding the Esoteric Eye feature. It says "you learn each of those creatures' spellcasting ability, if they have one." What does this exactly mean? So you see a druid, for example. So you gain their Wisdom? In what way? How does it work mechanically?

It means that you 1.) know they are a spellcaster and 2.) know Wisdom is their spellcasting ability.

Ah right thanks! One more question. Other than more eldritch societies and magic items, what does the full version have that the free version doesn't? Specifically, does it have more spells for the 3 free societies (eg more spells than what's listed for the Arcane Order)?

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
