I like the idea of creating a tricky, illusion-wielding, stealthy Cleric of Sivanvah (“patron goddess of illusion magic, tricksters, and those who keep secrets”).
I know I can make a Cleric with the Trickery domain (or one of its subdomains) for a smattering of tricksey spells. I know that if I use the Ecclesitheurge or Theologian archetypes, I can use my non-domain slots to cast those spells more often… but I will still have very few illusion spells to choose from. What I’d like is divine caster:
- Whose spell list contains more than 1 illusion / level
- (Bonus points) if it provides enough skills points to more easily be stealthy
Is there a Pathfinder class (or, more likely, archetype) that casts Divine spells but has access to a significant number of illusion spells?
My DM might consider 3rd party, but 1st party is preferable.
I recall in Warhammer v1 that Clerics of Ranald (their god of thieves) used the Illusionist’s spell list, but otherwise worked as Clerics, and I wonder if I’ve missed an archetype somewhere that does something similar.
If not, I feel like the classes that comes closest to my vision currently would be a Sorcerer or Mesmerist, reskinned as divine…but I wonder if there’s something better out there (perhaps as an archetype for Clerics, Inquisitors, or Warpriests).
