Insightful Mind (Monk/Wizard)

Long ago, a group of the brightest of elves established an acetic order centuries ago. This order utilizes a combination of mental prowess and physical conditioning to access an internal reservoir of arcane power. Unlike the magus, the insightful mind doesn't just seek to blend magic and combat, but to improve themselves as well. In the Golarion setting, such a process would be invented by elves pursuing the “Brightness”. (Original Concept by +5 Toaster)

Primary Class: Monk.

Secondary Class: Wizard.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Dice: d8.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The insightful mind may select three wizard skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal monk class skills. The insightful mind gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 4 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The insightful mind is proficient with the brass knuckles*, cestus*, club, crossbow (light or heavy), dagger, handaxe, javelin, kama, nunchaku, quarterstaff, sai, shortspear, short sword, shuriken, siangham, sling, spear, and temple sword*. Insightful minds are not proficient with any armor or shields. When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, an insightful mind loses his AC bonus, as well as his fast movement and flurry of blows abilities. (*Advanced Player’s Guide)

Illuminated Spellbook: An insightful mind finds less time to research new spells, but has mastered an elaborate manner of scribing those he learns. At 1st level, the insightful mind incorporates illuminated images into her arcane writings. He begins with an illuminated spellbook containing all cantrips plus three 1st-level spells of his choice. The insightful mind also selects a number of additional 1st-level spells equal to his Intelligence modifier to add to the spellbook. Creatures take a –4 penalty on skill checks involving the insightful mind's spellbook. The insightful mind's spells take one extra page each in his spellbook. At each new insightful mind level, he gains only one new spell of any spell level or levels that he can cast (based on his new insightful mind level) for his spellbook. At every odd level beyond 1st, if he has chosen to specialize in a school of magic, the chosen spell must be from his specialty school. At any time, an insightful mind can also add spells found in another insightful mind’s or wizard’s spellbook to his. In all other respects, an insightful mind's spellbook functions as a normal wizard's spellbook.

Spellcasting: Beginning at 1st level, an insightful mind gains the ability to cast arcane spells which are drawn from the insightful mind spell list. An insightful mind must choose and prepare his spells in advance.

To prepare or cast a spell, an insightful mind must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against an insightful mind's spell is 10 + the spell level + the insightful mind's Intelligence modifier.
