Leveling Up (Mage)
The following chart describes level dependent benefits:
- Arcane Focus: At 1st level, the Mage obtains a focus for his magic. This can take the form of a familiar or a bonded object. The familiar is a creature with which he shares a special bond. A bonded object (amulet, ring, staff, wand, or weapon). Familiars must be within Close Range of the Mage, while the bonded object must be worn (in case of clothing) or wielded (in case of staves, wands, weapons) to grant the Mage focus. The Arcane Focus grants a + 1 bonus on all Spellcraft checks made to cast spells. It costs (Mage Level x 100) gp to replace a destroyed Focus. A Mage can only have one Arcane Focus at a time.
