All of the following are class features of the Crystal Mage.
Crystal Mastery: A Crystal Caster can use Mana Crystals in ways that others don't even think of. They can charge a crystal with a spell that will go off when he throws it or shoots it with a sling. He may also make it discharge all the arcane or devine energy to deal 1d6 damage per spell level discharged. A Mana Crystal has a range increment of 10ft when thrown and may only go a maximum of 50ft. If thrown a Mana Crystal counts as a ranged weapon with the spell activated where it lands; if used this way the crystal is shattered and can not be repaired.
Craft Mana Crystal: At second level a Crystal Caster gains Craft Mana Crystal as a bonus feat.
Improved Mana Crystal Storage: At third level onwards a Crystal Caster's crafted Mana Crystals may hold 1.5% as many spell levels. (10 becomes 15)
Improved Charging: From fourth level a Crystal Caster's spells count as double their spell level for the purpose of charging Mana Crystals for discharge (0 level spells count as 1).
Dual wielding Mana Crystal: A fifth level Crystal Caster gains the ability to hold one crystal in each hand and be able to cast spells from both in the same round, it counts as a full action round. This ability may be used 1/day + 1/2cha mod.
