Arcanis, with its restrictions on mixing different "theories" of magic has heavy restrictions on the potential for multi-class spell casting. However two combinations are possible: a Holy Champion/Cleric combo and a Ranger (Talon of the Hawk)/Sorcerer.

The 5E Campaign Guide is silent on how to compute spell slots. But the Players Handbook covers these kinds of contingencies. I want to (A) make sure that they follow the rules on pg 164 of the Players Handbook (that the Holy Champion levels count for half, the TotH levels counts for 1/3) or (B) understand how the Arcanis campaign handles such builds.

Thanks for any official rulings.

unless otherwise noted multiclassing works the same

a Cleric/Holy Champion would use the spell slot table in the SRD

Does the same (Core 5e rules) apply for Elder Sorcerer and Elder Warlock?
(The later is in the Sorcerous Pacts 5e book.)

I would think you would still follow rules for combining pact magic and standard casting in SRD.

I guess it works differently for a Psion/Sorcerer?

No one official, but Psions don’t have spell slots. They have mental foci (that are expended to express spells). So I assume you would have to track both separately.

They would be tracked separately, you cannot use foci to manifest spells you know from your sorcerer side… yet.
