Class Skills (6 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are class features of the Mimic Spy.
Spellcasting or Manifesting: At each level except the first, you gain new spells (or powers) per day and an increase in caster (or manifester) level (and spells (or powers) known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting (or manifesting) 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 (or manifesting) class before becoming a Mimic Spy, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Shape Living Metal (Su): At 1st level, a Mimic Spy may reshape herself. She gain access to 3 "maneuver":
Create Weapons: As an immediate action. a mimic spy may shape a weapon made of living metal. The weapon appear in her hand ready to use. If it a throwing weapon (like a javelin) or ammunition (like arrows) she may create a number of them equal to her mimic spy class level. The weapon are alway of the mimic size. Except when using Assume Small Build or Assume Powerful Build, then she may create weapon one category smaller or one category bigger respectively. She retain the ability to create weapon of her original size.
The weapon are alway masterwork. Since these weapons aren't permanent they cannot be enhanced like normals weapons or otherwise affected by permanent effects. The weapons created with this ability gain a enhancement bonus equal to the mimic spy level.
Assume Slight Build: As a swift action a mimic spy allow her to change her physical stature to lets her function in many ways as if she was one size category smaller. Whenever a mimic spy is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as Hide), the mimic spy is treated as one size smaller if doing so is advantageous to the character. A mimic spy is also considered to be one size smaller when "squeezing" through a restrictive space. A mimic spy can use weapons designed for a creature one size smaller without penalty. However, the space and reach of a mimic spy remain those of a creature of their actual size.
Assume Powerful Build: As a swift action a mimic spy allow her to change her physical stature to lets her function in many ways as if she was one size category larger. Whenever a mimic spy is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the mimic spy is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A mimic spy is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A mimic spy can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this class feature stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subject’s size category.
Sneak Attack: As the rogue and stack with other sneak attack source.
Extend Reach Using this ability, a mimic spy may extend her reach as if she was up to 2 category larger.
Imbue Metal: At 3rd level, a mimic spy gains the ability to place an area spell/power upon an living metal thrown weapon/ammunition. When the living metal thrown weapon/ammunition is fired, the spell/power’s area is centered on where the living metal thrown weapon/ammunition lands, even if the spell/power could normally be centered only on the caster. This ability allows the spy to use the living metal thrown weapon/ammunition range rather than the spell’s range. It takes a standard action to cast/manifest the spell/power and fire the living metal thrown weapon/ammunition. The living metal thrown weapon/ammunition must be fired in the round the spell/power is cast, or the spell is wasted.
Instant Living Metal Shape: As a part of a full-attack action, a mimic spy may reshape her living metal weapon between each attack. (Thus she could make her first attack with a greataxe and all others with a dagger).
Living Metal Doom (Su): When a Mimic Spy succeed at inflicting a sneak attack on her target with a living metal weapon, she may inflict the terrible parasitic doom. The living metal crawl under her target skin and begin to destroy it vitals. Inflicting 1 point of constitution damage per turn. The metal last for 1 round per sneak attack dice. Any target can only be affected by one parasitic doom at the time, so multiple parasitic doom do not stack together. However any extra sneak attack made after ward extend the duration by 1 round. No matter how much sneak attacks you make during a round, the effect can only be extended once per round. Creature immune to critical hit are immune to living metal doom.
