5 + Constitution Modifier
To the uninitiated, magic and technology are completely unrelated, but you know there are more correlations between the two than most suspect. Magic and technology are just tools, and when combined into one discipline, called technomancy, they can be far more powerful than one or the other on its own. You utilize tech to empower, harness, and manipulate magic, and you wield magic to augment, control, and modify technology. You are an expert at hacking the underlying structure of the universe itself, bending the laws of science and nature to your will. Your technomancy—which is gained from scientific study and experimentation—manipulates the physical world, weaves illusions, allows you to peer through time and space, and if necessary, can blast a foe into atoms.
Your Intelligence determines your spellcasting ability, the saving throw DCs of your spells, and the number of bonus spells you can cast per day, so Intelligence is your key ability score. Also, a high Dexterity score can help you fire your weapons more accurately and dodge incoming attacks.

|BONUS SPELLS PER DAY (BY SPELL LEVEL)|
|SPELLS KNOWN (BY SPELL LEVEL)|
You cast spells drawn from the technomancer spell list. To
learn or cast a spell, you must have an Intelligence score equal to at least
10 + the spell’s level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against your
spell is 10 + the spell’s level + your Intelligence modifier.
You can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Your number of spells per day is given on Table 4–10: Technomancer. In addition, you receive bonus spells per day if you have an Intelligence modifier of +1 or higher, as shown on Table 4–11: Technomancer Bonus Spells—note that you only receive these bonus spells once you can cast spells of that level normally. You can also cast 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spell, but there is no limit to how many 0-level spells you can cast each day.
Your selection of spells is limited. You begin play knowing four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells of your choice. At each new technomancer level, you learn one or more new spells, as indicated on Table 4–12: Technomancer Spells Known. Unlike spells per day, the number of spells you know isn’t affected by your Intelligence modifier.
Every time you gain a level, you can swap out one spell you already know and learn a single new spell of the same level in its place. In effect, you lose the old spell in exchange for the new one. You must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time you gain new spells known for the level.
You can cast any technomancer spell you know at any time, assuming you have not yet used up your allotment of spells per day for the spell’s level. You can also cast a spell using a higherlevel spell slot. For instance, if you want to cast a 1st-level spell but have used up all your 1st-level spells for the day, you can use a spell from a 2nd-level slot instead if you have one.
You can also decipher magical inscriptions that would otherwise be unintelligible or, as a full action, identify any spells encoded in a spell gem. This does not normally invoke the magic contained within, although it may do so in the case of a cursed or trapped spell gem.
As the culmination of your early study of the fundamental forces of the galaxy,
you have created a spell cache that allows you to store and access spells. Your
spell cache could be a device such as a handheld computer or technological implant;
an item such as a ring or staff; or a symbol such as a brand, tattoo, or other
permanent modification to your body. While you don’t need your spell cache to
cast your spells, once per day, you can activate your spell cache to cast any
one spell you know and are capable of casting, even if you’ve expended all your
spell slots for that spell’s level.
If your spell cache is damaged, it is restored to full Hit Points the next time you prepare spells. If the spell cache is lost or destroyed, you can replace it after 1 week with a special ritual that takes 8 hours to complete.
You have carefully studied the forces that define magic and can manipulate them. You learn your first magic hack at 2nd level, and you learn an additional magic hack every 3 levels thereafter. When casting a spell, you can apply no more than one magic hack that affects the attributes of a spell (such as distant spell or extended spell). If a magic hack allows a saving throw to resist its effects, the DC is equal to 10 + half your technomancer level + your Intelligence modifier.The list of magic hacks can be found here.
You gain Spell Focus as a bonus feat.
You rewire your mind to give you greater insight into the nature of magic and technology. You gain a +1 insight bonus to Computers and Mysticism checks. This bonus increases by 1 at 6th level and every 3 levels thereafter.
You gain the Weapon Specialization feat as a bonus feat for each weapon type this class grants you proficiency with.
You expand your spell cache into a cache capacitor. As part of regaining
your spells each day, you can cast a single spell into your spell cache and
have it affect you continuously for 24 hours. The cache capacitor can hold any
of the following spells: detect radiation, disguise self, keen senses, or unseen
servant. You must know a spell to store it in your cache capacitor. When you
cast the spell into your cache capacitor, you expend the spell slot normally
and make any decisions required for that spell, but the duration doesn’t expire
for 24 hours. If the spell in your cache capacitor is dispelled or dismissed,
you can spend 5 minutes of uninterrupted concentration to reestablish it, keeping
the same decisions you made when you cast it, and gaining whatever duration
the spell had remaining. You can’t exchange the stored spell for another spell
until you again regains your spells.
At 12th level, your cache capacitor gains a second slot that can hold darkvision, lesser resistant armor, life bubble, or spider climb.
At 18th level, your cache capacitor gains a third slot that can hold arcane sight, flight (spell level 3rd or lower), see invisibility, or tongues.
You recover Resolve Points when you use powerful magic. Each time you cast a 6th-level spell, you regain 1 Resolve Point, up to your normal maximum. This applies only to spells you cast using your normal 6th-level spell slots, not to those you cast using magic items or other methods such as fuse spells.
You can combine lower-level spell slots to cast higher-level spells. As part
of casting a spell, you can spend 1 Resolve Point to exchange a number of unused
spell slots for a single spell slot of a higher level; this expends the lower-level
spell slots. Add up the levels of the expended slots to determine which higher
level of spell you can cast (maximum 6th). For instance, you could exchange
three 1st-level slots to cast a 3rd-level spell, or you could exchange two 3rd-level
slots to cast a 6th-level spell. If you combine spell slots to cast a 6th-level
spell, it doesn’t count as such for resolve attunement.
Furthermore, you can spend 2 Resolve Points to combine two 6th-level spell slots to cast wish.
