Athainor hefted his blade, facing the charging blackguard. He swiftly gesgured with his hand, sending fire down his blade, while parrying the blackguards blows. He swung his sword, making a large gash in the blackguards chest, and the fire left his blade, burning the blackguards torso up in a flare of blue flame.
A Spellblade is someone who fights with magic channeled into their sword, using it to cast touch attack spells.

The Spellblade does not gain any class skills or weapon proficiencies.
All the following are class features of the Spellblade:
The Spellblade can cast spells through any melee weapon, and in addition, a number of times per day equal to her class level in spellblade + the Spellblade's intelligence score, she can deal normal weapon damage in addition to attack spells. However, in order to deal the weapon damage, the attack roll must equal or exceed the target's normal AC. If she fails, then she only deals the damage from the spell (unless she failed to equal or exceed the targets touch AC, in which case she deals no damage). The Spellblade's spells remain in her sword (no more than one at any one time) until she succeeds in hitting a target, but the spell dissipates afer 1 day.
- Somatic Mastery
The spellblade can cast any spells while using her sword with one or both hands without any penalties.
- Power Attack, Combat Casting, Weapon Specialization, Greater Weapon Focus, Greater Weapon Specialization
The Spellblade gains these feats at the respective levels indicated in Table: The Spellblade. If the feat requires her to choose a weapon to apply the feat to, she must choose a one-handed sword she is proficient with, and she must have the weapon focus feat for that sword. Otherwise, she may take the feat even if she would ordinarily be unable to.
- Bonus Metamagic Feat
The Spellblade gains extra metamagic feats at the respective levels indicated in table: The Spellblade.
- Spells per day
When a new spellblade level is gained the spellblade gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in a spellcasting class she belonged to before adding the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, except for an increased effective level of spellcasting. If a character had more than one spellcasting class before becoming an spellblade, she must decide to which class he adds the new level for purposes of determining spells per day. She may only gain these benefits for classes that cast magic spontaneously (with Charisma, like a Sorcerer).
