I have created a new expert class for mages. I love the concept of golem masters and golem creators. This idea I have pulled from the Arcanist expert class, already published on this forum, including a very nice ability named "Familiar". This ability works just as Animal Partner or Personal Liuntenant, but for Spellcasting feats.
So, first of all I need to create a feat that doesn't exist: Golem Partner feat. This works just like animal partner feat, but for spellcasting feats instead of terrain feats. I could have introduced it as an ability on the expert class, but I thought it was better to follow the same pattern than the beastmaster.
I would like to have you judge this class so, if you think it is nice and equilibrated, I will present it to my game master and play it. I currently play a level 2 wizard on a campaign that will go as long as up to level 14.
So here it goes. Be nice Golem Mater (Expert)
The Golem Master is a mage that owns Golems. He may be a scholar whose house is protected by his Golem, he may run a magic workshop where the Golem watches over the warehouse or he may be an adventurer whose companion, the Golem, takes on all the physical side of fighting.
Party Role: Wildcard. As a wizard, the variety of spells can give a wide range of functionalities within the party. Also, the help of a Large and strong Golem will give the party a good fighter partner.Class Features
