Spells and Magic

Arcane Spells

Free spells gained when going up a level must be taken from the Core Rulebook.

Other spells must be purchased (or obtained via 'adventuring') before they can be learnt. The cost of these spells is higher than normal due to their rarity.

Source Rarity Cost
Core Rulebook Common x1
Non-Core Rulebook Uncommon x3
Other Paizo Source Rare x5
Non-Paizo Source Very Rare x10

This doesn't mean that all such spells are available (especially for non-Paizo sources).

Divine Spells

As for Arcane spells, Divine spells can only be selected from the Core Rulebook unless the character has had a chance to study them first. Temples, NPCs or scrolls are possible sources. Temples and NPCs will generally charge for access to these spells.

Once studied, such a spell can be selected normally.

Costs are as for Arcane spells.

Psychic Spells

If you are a Psychic character (not permitted by default), then spells in Occult Mysteries, as well as any spells on your basic class list, can be used as your free spells when starting and levelling up. Otherwise they count as Uncommon, though a PC Psychic will probably have a source they can go to.
