Magical Tokens are mechanically identical to potions, but have different spells that are common to them. They are generally small clay or glass disks with inctricate inlays that reveal their use. They are activated when a creature focuses on the token and breaks it as a move action. An example token might be a Prestidigitation or Detect Magic token.

Time Domain for divine casters.
Backtrack (Su): Whenever you and your allies roll for initiative, you can grant one ally within 30 feet the ability to roll twice and take either result. This decision is made before results are revealed. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
Wait it Out (Su): At 8th level, you gain the ability to instantly recover from non-permanent harmful effects by temporarily aging yourself in a matter of moments. As a standard action, shift your effective age to the next step, and take all penalties related to age. Any non permanent conditions or effects immediately end, including beneficial spells.
You may do this multiple times, but cannot age past venerable. You return to your actual age 24 hours after the last time you used this ability.


Haft Strike Requirements: +3 BAB

Pikeman’s Training Requirements: +1 BAB

Modified Rules

Barbarian: If a barbarian is knocked unconscious, but not killed, while raging, or leaves a rage at low health, he cannot die from the loss of his raging health bonus, and is instead reduced to one above his negative constitution. Example: Bob is a barbarian that gains +30 health during a rage, and has 18 constitution normally. If he is at 1 hp when he stops raging, he loses his health bonus of 30. In normal pathfinder this would kill him, instead he is reduced to -17 and begins bleeding out. He has to make a bleeding out save to avoid bleeding to death next round. If failed, he loses 1 hp and dies as normal.
If Bob the barbarian is instead knocked unconscious by an enemy and reduced to -5 hp, this effect also happens, and his health is lowered to -17 by the loss of his rage.

Combat Manuevers only provoke attacks of opportunity if you fail to affect your foe with them. If the enemy is trained in the manuever and you are not, you provoke an attack of opportunity that is resolved before your manuever.

Improved Counterspell is a feat given to all full casters for free at level 1. (Sorcerer, Wizard, Cleric, Arcanist, etc)

Combat Expertise is no longer prerequisite for Improved Trip/Reposition/Steal/Dirty Trick/Feint/Disarm feats or their greater versions. Other feats may still require them.

Permanency can now be used with these spells: Obscure Object (7500g), Magic Aura (5000g)
This means that items can now be enchanted to be very difficult to find. These enchantments do not work on artifacts easily, and require complex rituals and custom research.
