Class Features

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Scarlet battle magi do not gain any additional proficiencies in weapons or armor.

Spell Slots per Day: At the levels shown on Table 3-9, the Scarlet battle mage gains new spell slots per day as if she had also gained a level in the spellcasting class in which she could cast 3rd-level arcane spells before she added the Scarlet battle mage level. She does not gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If she had more than one spellcasting class in which she could cast 3rd-level arcane spells before she became a Scarlet battle mage, she must decide to which class she adds each level of Scarlet battle mage for the purpose of determining spell slots per day.

Pyromancy (Ex): The Scarlet battle mage specializes in fire magic to incinerate her unholy enemies. Her focus greatly increases the devastating power of her fire-based spells, but this dedication has its cost. At 1st level and every four levels thereafter (5 th and 9th), when the Scarlet battle mage casts a spell that deals fire damage, that spell deals an additional +1 point of damage for each die of fire damage. For example, a 5th-level Scarlet battle mage deals an additional +20 points of damage with fire bolt (since it normally deals 10d6 points of damage; see More Magic & Mayhem for the fire bolt spell). However, when the Scarlet battle mage casts a spell with the cold descriptor, that spell deals -1 point of damage per die of cold damage.

Note that this feature affects only the fire and cold portion of the damage; some spells, like rain of fire, deal an additional type of damage, such as bludgeoning. Damage dice from non-fire or non-cold damage do not gain a bonus or take a penalty.

Avenging Blade (Ex): Scarlet battle magi blend melee and magic. While battle magi are far more proficient at spellcasting than melee combat, they are trained to adapt to any situation, and take advantage of their enemy's vulnerabilities. At 3rd level, as a swift action, the Scarlet battle mage can make a melee attack at her highest base attack bonus. She can use this ability w o ft L d
