Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Meta-magic Mystic Theuge.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Meta-magic Mystic Theuge’s gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

Spellcasting: When an odd-numbered Meta-magic Mystic Theurge level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in any one arcane spellcasting class he belonged to before he added the prestige class and any one divine spellcasting class he belonged to previously. When an even-numbered Meta-magic mystic theurge level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if he had also gained a level in any one arcane spellcasting class he belonged to before he added the prestige class. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. This essentially means that he adds the level of Meta-magic Mystic Theurge to the level of whatever other arcane spellcasting class and if applicable divine spellcasting class the character has, then determines spells per day and caster level accordingly. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class or more than one divine spellcasting class before he became a Meta-magic Mystic Theurge, he must decide to which class he adds each level of Meta-magic Mystic Theurge for the purpose of determining spells per day.

Bonus Feats:

Turn or Rebuke Undead (Su): Levels in Meta-magic Mystic Theuge stack with any other class levels that provide Turning or Rebuking.

Divine Meta-magic: Meta-magic Mystic Theuges can use Turn or Rebuke Undead attempts per day to reduce Meta-magic spell level adjustments. One Turn or Rebuke attempt per day can be used to reduce the Meta-magic spell slot increase by 1.

Meta-magic Feat: Meta-magic Mystic Theuges gain an additional Meta-magic feat in level 2 and level 8.

Improved Metamagic: The spell slot modifier of all the character’s metamagic feats is reduced by one level, to a minimum of +1. This feat has no effect on metamagic feats whose spell slot modifier is +1 or less. A character can gain this feat multiple times. The effects stack, though a character can’t reduce any metamagic feat’s spell slot modifier to less than +1.

Extra Turning: Meta-magic Mystic Theuge’s gain the extra turning feat at lv 5 and lv 10. Each time the Meta-magic Mystic Theuges gains this feat, he can use his ability to turn or rebuke creatures four more times per day than normal.
