Mystic (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
|Editing:||Constructive edits welcome|
The mystic is a magic user that summons divine energy from the world around him. She does not need to worship any deity in exchange for divine spell casting, unlike the cleric whose prayers are answered by their respective gods. Mystics are not tied to temples, and while some may work with or even serve in temples their powers are directly tied to the positive material plane.
Making a Mystic
The mystic is a divine spell caster that spontaneously draws power from the environment and the positive material plane. Unlike clerics their abilties are supernatural in nature as they possess a direct link to healing powers instead of having to draw that energy from their deity. However the major drawback of a mystic is that only a certain number of spells come naturally to them, and they cannot choose from the complete listing that clerics enjoy for daily versatility.
Abilities: The mystics abilities are routed in Charisma and this attribute will provide their bonus spell capacity and their abilities to turn or rebuke undead.
Races: Any race can be a mystic.
Starting Gold: 3d4×10 gp 75 gp average.

Spells: A mystic casts divine spells, which are drawn from the cleric spell list. However, his alignment may restrict him from casting certain spells opposed to his moral or ethical beliefs; see Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells, below. A mystic spontaneously casts spells and does not need to prepare them in advance
To prepare or cast a spell, a mystic must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The difficulty class for a saving throw against a mystic’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the mystic’s Charisma modifier.
Like other spellcasters, a mystic can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Mystic. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Charisma score.
Turn or Rebuke Undead (Su): Any mystic, regardless of alignment, has the power to affect undead creatures by channeling the power of his faith through his mystic symbol (see Turn or Rebuke Undead). This symbol can be anything that he feels empowered by,
A good mystic can turn or destroy undead creatures. An evil mystic instead rebukes or commands such creatures. A neutral mystic of a must choose whether his turning ability functions as that of a good mystic or an evil mystic. Once this choice is made, it cannot be reversed.
A mystic may attempt to turn undead a number of times per day equal to 3 + his Charisma modifier. A mystic with 5 or more ranks in Knowledge (religion) gets a +2 bonus on turning checks against undead.
