Most sorcerers focus on the magical abilities emerging from their sorcerous origin. Not so with the arcane adventurer. They see themselves as adventurers that happen to have the gift of magic. Using their magic as the base, an arcane adventurer develops a well-rounded profile, a mix of magical and mundane abilities.

Sorcerous Origin Abilities

Adventurer Spells

Starting at 1st level, you learn additional spells when you reach certain levels in this class depending on your chosen element, as shown on the Adventurer Spells table. Each of these spells counts as a sorcerer spell for you, but it doesn't count against the number of sorcerer spells you know.

Whenever you gain a sorcerer level, you can replace one spell you gained from this feature with another spell of the same level. The new spell must be a divination, illusion, or transmutation spell from the wizard spell list.

Familiar Concentration

At 18th level, when you use your familiar to deliver a spell, your familiar can maintain concentration on this spell as if the familiar was the caster.
