<-fluff about class features; class features should be listed in the order which they are gained. Abilities gained at the same level should be listed alphabetically->. All of the following are class features of the choreutist.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: You do not gain any extra weapon or armor proficiency.
Bardic Music: Your choreutist levels stack with any class level that increases your bardic music ability, and its uses, for the purpose of fascinate, inspire courage, inspire heroism, suggestion and mass suggestion.
Monk Abilities: Your choreutist levels stack with any level that increases your monk abilities for the purpose of AC Bonus, Evasion, Flurry of Blows, Unarmed Damage and Unarmed Speed Bonus (or any analogous of these features). If you use my monk, choreutist levels stack even for ki points and ki techniques and all that is related to them, and for Wrestling Sensei.
Spellcasting: At each level, except the 2nd and 6th, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in the bard 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.
Ki Strike (Su): At 1st level, a choreutist's unarmed attacks are empowered with ki. Your unarmed attacks are treated as magic weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. Ki strike improves with the character's choreutist level. At 4th level, your unarmed attacks are also treated as lawful or chaotic weapons (depending on your alignment) for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction. At 8th level, your unarmed attacks are treated as adamantine weapons for the purpose of dealing damage to creatures with damage reduction and bypassing hardness.
Staged Strike: Starting from 2nd level, as a part of an attack, you may spend a stunning attempt to hit a fascinated opponent. To do this you must make a Perform (dance) or Perform (recitation) check with DC 13 + half the enemy's HD + its Wisdom modifier.
If the skill check is successful the enemy is flat-footed against your attack and its fascinated condition remains until after you've dealt damage. This attack inflicts an additional 1d6 + 1d6 per each even level, up to 5d6 at 10th level, of damage. This is not precision damage, such as sneak attack is, and creatures immune to critical hits still suffer it.
If your opponent is not already fascinated by your fascinate ability you may try to fascinate it as part of the action by spending two stunning attempts. In this case all the appropriate rules apply (that is, you must effectively fascinate the opponent).
You may do all of this even in a flurry of blows, but the extra damage applies only to the first successful attack (but all the other conditions are present for all the blows).
This is effectively a feint otherwise and all possible conditions apply (such as the bonus from the Improved Feint feat).
You gain a bonus on Perform (dance) or Perform (recitation) checks equal to half your class level.
Improved Evasion (Ex): At 5th level, a choreutist's evasion ability improves. You still take no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, but henceforth you take only half damage on a failed save. A helpless choreutist does not gain the benefit of improved evasion. A choreutist that already has this feature gains a +4 to Reflex saves.
Catastrophe (Su): Once per day, from level 10, you may spend a use of bardic music and a full round action to make a Perform check (DC 30) to target one enemy per Charisma modifier in 60 feet (18 meters), that must be able to hear/see you (depending on the form of your exhibition). If the check is successful, targets must pass a Will save (DC=20 + class level + Charisma modifier) or fall dead immediately.
This is a mind-affecting effect.
