This mod adds the Mystic Fire paladin kit. It is a paladin with the ability to cast a limited amount of arcane spells while wearing armor as well as an anti-caster, albeit not as much so as the inquisitor. It suffers throughout BG1 due to not accessing its spells but is incredibly strong once its potential is unlocked.
This kit was a surprisingly massive pain to make and I don't feel comfortable calling it a stable release yet despite it seemingly functioning. Because of this, I would like to request for people to provide feedback on any issues. Or you can just use it for fun if you'd rather. It is a lot of fun at least
