Spell Gem (Ex)

A clockwork mage casts spells from a spell gem. Its creator can equip a clockwork mage with different spell gems to allow it to fulfill different roles. They cast 0-level and 1st-level spells at will, 2nd-level spells 6 times per day, and 3rd-level spells 3 times per day.

All spell gems are equipped with the following spells:

0 leveldetect magic, mending; 1stoverheat, magic missile.

Swift Reactions (Ex)

Clockwork constructs gain Lightning Reflexes and Improved Initiative as bonus feats.


Environment any
Organization solitary

These constructs are the pinnacle of clockwork inventions. An ingenious combination of mechanical devices and magical conduits allows a clockwork mage to channel the power of a spell gem into a variety of arcane powers. They often serve powerful arcane spellcasters, or as unflinching and unquestioning casters to those who wants the benefit of spells without ego or free thought.

A humanoid figure of mithral, steel, and vaporfilled crystals, a clockwork mage often drapes itself in a cloak or shroud. It stands 7 feet tall.
