[PS0] Semi-Classes, General Rules

Semi-Classes are simplified classes. They are meant to be an alternative to taking a "tack-on" class; a class you intend to only ever be level 1.
Semi-Classes cost of a Class Slot. They may be added at a round break during combat. They cannot truly be added "on the fly" (like in reaction to something), however.
Semi-Classes give only one or two abilities ("lines of text"). They do not give most of the things that normal classes give (hit points, saving throw bonuses, to hit bonuses, proficiencies, spell progression).
 
Semi-Classes do violate "Single Class XP bonus". If you have one Semi-Class, take half of the bonus (e.g. if the bonus is "x2 XP", you get only "x1.5 XP"). If you have two or more Semi-Classes, you are no longer considered Single classed.
(For the December 2014 campaign: For this campaign only, the first Semi-Class doesn't count for the above. i.e. *two* Semi-Classes is half the bonus, and *three* is no longer Single classed.)
 
Most of the time, you do not level up Semi-Classes; they are considered level 1. If you do want to level up a Semi-Class for some reason, use this procedure: For each 1 KXP you spend on a Semi-class, its level is increased by 1. This has a max = your highest level among your normal (non-Semi) classes. If your character is made up only of Semi-classes, the highest level is equal to "minimum level" (if that is not specified, use what level you would be with the "overwrite" XP table, minus 1).

[PS2] Wizard Pet Mage Int 5, Chr 9, Cml 5 +1 Familiar slot
[PS2] Wizard School Robe (pick a non-Int stat) 9 School Robe (pick a school, spells in that school are considered 1 spell level lower for you.) You know the "unusual" spells from that school.

[PS3] Priest Sphere Robe (pick a non-Wis stat) 9 Sphere Robe (pick a sphere, spells in that sphere are considered 1 spell level lower for you.) You know the "unusual" spells from that sphere.
[PS4] Rogue Rogue Componenter Dex 16 May "material component" Rogue abilities by spending an extra V action.
[PS4] Rogue Sneak Dex 5, Wis 4 Gains all Dex-based Rogue abilities.
[PS5] Psionicist Quintessential Psion6 Chr 10 May "material component" Psionic abilities by spending an extra V action.
[PS5] Psionicist Astral Physical Initiate30 Int 7, Wis 7, Chr 7 Can use Astral Perception. Can use Astral Projection (Int->Str, Wis->Dex, Chr->Con), and can attack normally while projected.
[PS6] Custom Any class can theoretically be made into a Semi-Class. Take of the class's requirements (round up; ignoring class and race slots requirements). You get one (and only one) of the lines of text, and nothing else. The line of text cannot generates an entire class or field of abilities (e.g. "Abilities as per Druid1"). A "Level:" ability cannot be chosen. (Note that DM written Semi-Classes sometimes violate these rules.)
[PS10] Mini This is just a note that Mini Semi-Classes theoretically exist. You would get just the "line of text" below the normal Mini class (if it has it). It would cost 0 XP to be level 1. Under current rules, they would cost of a Class Slot, not of a Mini Class Slot.

[PS0.14] Concordant (x2) Semi-Classes, General Rules

Concordant Semi-Classes cost of a Concordant Class Slot. They may be added at a round break during combat. They cannot truly be added "on the fly" (like in reaction to something), however.
Concordant Semi-Classes give only two to four abilities ("lines of text"). They do not give most of the things that normal Concordant classes give (hit points, saving throw bonuses, to hit bonuses, proficiencies, spell progression). Some Concordant Semi-Classes give ihp or X actions though.
In the requirements, "HNCL 9" basically means "Any class level 9". (It is short for "Highest Non-Concordant Level").
 
When you have a Concordant Semi-Class, you may pick "Offensive" or "Defensive". Your "Multiplier" on that half is considered x2. Basically, this means your effects are either hard to dispel (Defensive), or you can dispel a x2 being's effects with only one spell (Offensive).
You can be x2 in both if you have two Concordant Semi-Classes.
 
Most of the time, you do not level up Concordant Semi-Classes; they are considered level 1. If you do want to level up a Concordant Semi-Class for some reason, use this procedure: For each 1 MXP (1000 KXP) you spend on a Concordant Semi-class, its level is increased by 1. This has a max = 36.
