Type of Feat: Class
Prerequisite: Arcane Scholar of Candlekeep level 10.
Specifics: At 10th level, the Arcane Scholar becomes especially adept at quickening spells. Quickened spells now only use up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level. Quickened spells can be cast instantaneously, making them invulnerable to interruption. A quickened spell is not vulnerable to arcane spell failure when wearing armour, does not provoke an attack of opportunity and can't be counterspelled. A quickened spell is cast as a free action, and another action can be attempted within the same round, including the casting of another spell. Only one quickened spell can be cast per round.
Use: Improved Quickened spells occupy spell slots three levels higher than normal.
