For some Varisians, their traditional dances pulse with the power of their ancestors. These dancers incorporate their kapenias—scarves embroidered with the history of the bearer’s clan—into their dances, weaving deadly whirling steps with the power of their ancestors.
The kapenia dancer is an archetype of the magus class.
A kapenia dancer is proficient in simple weapons and bladed scarves. Additionally, a kapenia dancer can wield a bladed scarf as a one-handed melee weapon. A kapenia dancer is not proficient with armor or shields and suffers the normal arcane spell failure chance when casting magus spells while armored.
A kapenia dancer can cast one fewer spell of each level than normal. If this reduces the number to 0, he can cast spells of that level only if his Intelligence allows bonus spells of that level.
A kapenia dancer gains access to the following magus arcana. He cannot select any arcana more than once.
Elasticity (Su): As a free action, the kapenia dancer can spend 1 point from his arcane pool in order to grant a bladed scarf he’s wielding reach until the end of his turn. A kapenia dancer can use this arcana in tandem with other magus arcana.
Kapenia Curse (Su): Choose an ability score upon taking this arcana. Whenever the kapenia dancer scores a critical hit with a bladed scarf, he may expend 1 point from his arcane pool to deal 1d4 points of damage to that ability score of the creature struck. This arcana can be selected multiple times, but a different ability score must be chosen each time. The kapenia dancer must be at least 9th level before selecting this arcana.
Spirit Step (Su): Whenever the kapenia dancer scores a critical hit with a bladed scarf, he may expend 1 point from his arcane pool to teleport to any point within 30 feet. The kapenia dancer’s turn ends after being teleported. The kapenia dancer must be at least 12th level before selecting this arcana.
