All of the following are class features of the Abyssal Alchemist.
Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a Abyssal Alchemist, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Black Alchemy (Su): Instead of using XP to cast spells, a Abyssal Alchemist may decide to use demonic essence instead. Each CR worth of demonic essence replace 10 XP used. This can be used both in item creation and spellcasting.
Entrap Fiendish Essence (Su): As a full-round action, a Abyssal Alchemist may harvest part of a dead demon soul. She gain 1/2 the dead demon CR worth of demonic essence (see black alchemy).
Fiend Transmutation (Ex): Gain a bonus to DC equal to abyssal alchemist level to all transmutation spell, work only against outsider with the evil subtype.
Recycle Fiends (Ex): At 2nd level, as a full-round action, a class may recycle part of a dead fiend. She gain 50 gp/CR worth of material components usable instead of any respective material components for any spells or item creation.
Vile Essence (Su): At 2nd level, all spells casted by a abyssal alchemist are affected by corrupt spell metamagic feat for free without any increase in casting time.
Harvest Essence (Su): At 3rd the class is able to fully harvest a demon soul, when using entrap fiendish essence she gain the ability to extract full CR instead of 1/2 CR worth of demonic essence.
Soul Alchemy (Su): At 4th level the abyssal alchemist gain the ability to cast spell-like abilities of any demon she possess the essence. She is restrained to the demon daily limits and several other limitation. She cannot use the spell-like abilities of a demon with a higher CR than her and every time she use one spell-like ability the particular fiend's CR drop by 1. If she spent the fiends daily limit of all spell-like abilities or reduce the demon CR to 0 the soul is completely consumed and utterly unusable.
Soul Corruption: Manipulating fiendish energy and transmutation demon soul finally shown it effect on the abyssal alchemist, at 5th level her type change to outsider and she gain the demon subtype. However the class alignment does not change. The abyssal alchemist may however be raised as her former type.
