Spell Strike (Combat)

1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 Rating 2.69 (13 Votes)
You may deliver magic spells through forceful attacks rather than by mere touches.


Prerequisites
Improved Unarmed Strike or a natural weapon, ability to cast spells

Benefit
When casting a spell with a range of touch, you may instead choose to attempt to deliver the spell through an unarmed strike or natural attack. You may make this attack as part of the spell's casting.

You must declare you are delivering a spell in this way at the start of its casting - if the spell is lost for any reason (such as failing a concentration check to cast defensively), you may still make the free attack without gaining the benefits of the spell.

Normal
A spell can only be discharged through a natural attack by retaining the spell's charge from a casting in a previous round.

Author's Note: Good for monk/caster multiclasses, Sorcerers who gain natural attacks from their bloodlines, or monsters with natural attacks and caster levels
