The Secrets of the Magus by Rite Publishing

This product is 13 pages long. It starts with a cover and credits. (2 pages)

New Magus Arcana (4 ½ pages) There is 34 new arcana in the book. Several of the ones I liked was. Animate Weapon – makes it into a dancing weapon. Athame Surge – temporarily enchant a weapon in a variety of ways. Damage Shield – temporarily gives them DR Energy Web – creating a elemental style web that damages foes while trapping them. Necromatic Strike – does bonus dmg and save or take str and con dmg for the living. Does massive dmg to undead. Nigh Irresistible Strike – allows a magus to bypass DR.

Extra's (3 ½ pages) There is a new Magus Archetype, Singer of Blades. This archetype replaces several abilities, in place it gains abilities Song of Blades which gives me a AC bonus when wielding a 1h weapon and nothing in the other hand. A bonus to concentration when casting defensively, once a day force a crit even on monsters immune to it and finally can attack everything with in 30ft of them.

There is also 7 new feats and 3 new magic items, including one minor artifact.

It ends with a OGL and ads (3 pages)

Closing thoughts. The artwork is color and so so. Layout and editing are good. Most of the new Arcana are good, a few are very cool, but I was also hoping for some more other option styles. The Singer of blades and some of the song arcana hit on this. Giving it a slight bard feel, which was nice. But I was hoping for a bit more of that. What there is, is good. So don't get me wrong, I was just hoping for some more stuff to add variation to the class. The archetype and magic items and feats where all good. Especially the archetype and minor artifact which was both very very good. Everything seemed well balanced and thought out. So what's my rating? I am going to go with a 4.5. It gives everything it claims it will and does it well, but I couldn't help feeling that it needed just a bit more to push it up to a 5.

Trust me, I'm a Succubus.
