Spellmasters know a singular spell can be rather powerful if studied carefully. They specialize in one particular spell and develop it to amazing levels. Sorcerers and wizards are the most common spellmasters, but there are also found many druids and occasional cleric spellmasters.
To become a spellmaster, a character must fulfill the following criteria.
Spells: Ability to cast arcane or divine spells of at least 3rd level
Skills: Knowledge (arcana or religion) 4 ranks, Spellcraft 4 ranks
Feat: Spell Focus

 Class Features:
All of the following are class features of the spellmaster prestige class.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A spellmaster gains no new weapon, armor or shield proficiencies.
Improved Caster Level (Ex): At 1st level, a spellmaster begins her relentless focus and specialization on a particular spell. She adds her levels in spellmaster to her caster level when casting her signature spell.
Signature Spell: A spellmaster must choose one spell she knows as her signature spell. She will develop and improve that spell during her career as a spellmaster.
Specialized Metamagic (Ex): At each level of the spellmaster prestige class, a character may choose a metamagic feat which can be used only with her signtature spell. The spellmaster needs not to have the metamagic feat chosen, but she must meet any prerequisites the feat may have. The metamagic feat works just like a normal metamagic feat except it can only be applied to the spellmaster’s signature spell and it doesn’t take higher spell slots (however, the metamagic feat cannnot be applied if it would normally take the spell to a level higher than the spellmaster can cast).
