Archsorc (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
True sorcerers do not need silly pets to fight, if we wanted to be as silly as that, we would have been druids! Ha! Just a bit of Archsorc humor. Oh, you don't know what Archsorcs are? Well your in luck because your speaking to one right now! Archmsorcs are sorcerers that are about middleground between sorcerer and wizard. They are a better version of what the sorcerers could be if they had "arch" stuck in from of them.

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Archsorc.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Archsorcs are profecient with daggers, quarterstaffs, magical items, and crossbows. The Archsorc does not have proficiency with armour, but if they manage to gain proficiency, they may cast their spells without her somatic spells failing.
Spells: An Archsorc casts arcane spells which are drawn from the sorcerer/wizard spell list. An Archsorc can cast any spell he knows ahead of time without preparing it. To learn, prepare, or cast a spell, the Archsorc must have an Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a Archsorc’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the Archsorc’s Charisma modifier.
Like other spellcasters, an Archsorc can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Her base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Archsorc. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Charisma score.
Unlike a bard or sorcerer, an Archsorc may know any number of spells. She must choose and prepare her spells ahead of time by getting a good night’s sleep and spending 1 hour studying her spellbook. While studying, the Archsorc decides which spells to prepare.
A sorcerer’s selection of spells is extremely limited. A sorcerer begins play knowing four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells of your choice. At each new sorcerer level, he gains one or more new spells, as indicated on Table: Sorcerer Spells Known. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a sorcerer knows is not affected by his Charisma score; the numbers on Table: Sorcerer Spells Known are fixed.) These new spells can be common spells chosen from the sorcerer/wizard spell list, or they can be unusual spells that the sorcerer has gained some understanding of by study. The sorcerer can’t use this method of spell acquisition to learn spells at a faster rate, however.
Upon reaching 4th level, and at every even-numbered sorcerer level after that (6th, 8th, and so on), a sorcerer can choose to learn a new spell in place of one he already knows. In effect, the sorcerer “loses” the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spell’s level must be the same as that of the spell being exchanged, and it must be at least two levels lower than the highest-level sorcerer spell the sorcerer can cast. A sorcerer may swap only a single spell at any given level, and must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time that he gains new spells known for the level.
Note: Only 3 effects can be on a spell.
