Okay, so I want to figure out the various permutations to get a BUNCH of low level, tier 1 and 2 and variant 3 spellcasters, to ALL have as many of the weird, esoteric, and alternate-sourced spells out there.

This is for a strategy game using Pathfinder & D&D rules, where pathfinder overrides equivalent stuff in D&D--rules, so the more I can do with REALLY low level characters, the better!

Say you have an Archivist 3. Great.  He'll need... a Cloistered Cleric, an Adept, a Druid, a Divine Bard, a Paladin.  No dragon mag for this game (yes its a real game), so no Mystic Ranger.
So how do I get the Archivist to get the Wizard spells? Some alternate feat from somewhere?

How do I get all of the weird archivist spells onto the WIZARD list, then, so I can get it to the Spell to Power Erudite?

How does the artificer fit in? The warlock?

And remember. LOW LEVEL -- how do I move this around so that as many of these level 3 characters have the WIDEST variety of spells possible?

Too bad I don't recall this too well, but isn't there a class called Hexer or something that can convert spells like that?

I'm just looking for the standard ways that everyone talks about, but all in one place so five or six level 3's can have an obscene variety of spells.

Druid, Adept, Divine Bard & Cloistered Cleric gives all of his spells to Archivist... and the Wizard with Southern Magician gives his stuff to the Archivist...

How does the Archivist give that back to the Wizard (or whatever) to give it to the StP Erudite?

Urgh, I must have been tripping there. Unless I have missed something, Wizards are limited to their own spell list, so only classes that grant new spells can help them. And, well, obviously the Arcane Disciple domain. StP Erudite is something I have not made myself familiar with yet due to the knee jerk reaction all my DMs have when I utter those words.

Oh wait! Could a Southern Magician Archivist just give it to the Erudite?

Alright... pathfinder classes. O,o Summoner, Inquisitor, etc.  Any of them have any obscure spells at low levels? And psionic classes?

I guess I'd need a Shaper to make sure the Erudite gets the useful psionic stuff?

OKAY! DM says I would have to set up TWO 'spell funnels'.

One would be Divine spells funneling into an Archivist.

Another would be Arcane & Powers funneling into a spell to power erudite.

What's the most efficient pathfinder way to funnel the most spells to these two ends?

Yeah, or if you did have dragon access, Alternative Sourced spell.

Once you have the funds, a Ring of Theurgy in Complete Arcane page 145 can be alot of fun.  Spontaneous casters can have anyone cast a spell into the ring (up to three) and the spell then appears on your list until you cast it once.  Works great with eternal wands too if you want a higher caster level or to apply metamagic feats with your slots.

There is other equipment that adds spells know, but not as versatile.

Chameleon also works well later with this stuff in the game.  If anyone has an arcane spell they can cast as divine, then the chameleon can have it without any prep work beyond choosing the domain focus.

Tome of Ancient Lore(complete divine) has EVERY arcane spell EVER.  Though you have to give up a 5th level divine slot (or have True Believer and 9 HD if you are Arcane iirc) to use a copy of the book.

There's a (i think lvl9) spell in Book of Erotic Fantasy, allowing to share the spellpool of the caster and the target. Could you just get this spell as a scroll (costs much due to 500xp cost) and share spells?

There is a Handbook on expanding your spell list.
There are in there ways to get Arcs and Divs across the divide.
Not my specialty.


Dragon #349 has the feat Chameleon Crafting.
Let's you make Psi Scrolls or Arc Powerstones or Div Dorjes
etc ... although I'm afb,
so there are details which are kinda important.

With Tome of Ancient Lore, you pretty much have every spell that's on a domain as an Arcane spell. AND you have all those spells as transmutation spells if you want to.

So if you ever thought that you wanted to give up 6 wizard schools through weird multi-classing. Just grab the book and you are fine with just Transmutation. (I'm thinking Focused Specialist Incantatrix Red Wizard is the highest number of schools you can ban?)
Monks are pretty much the best designed class ever.
