<-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 erinys.
Spellcasting: At each level, except the 4th and 8th level, 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 a divine spellcasting 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.
Focused domain (Su): Your domain power improves. Your domain determines the exact improvement:
-Retribution: you may use strike of vengeance three times per day.
-Wrath: You may exchange 1 point of Wisdom for 1 point of Strength, instead of 2 for 1, and your erinys and favored soul levels stack to determine your cleric level for this power. You may interrupt this power whenever you want and regain its effect up until you daily limit.
Relentless chase (Ex): You may follow tracks as if you had the Track or Urban Tracking feat. You may use Search checks to follow tracks instead of Survival or Gather Information checks and you may use your Wisdom modifier instead of your Intelligence modifier as a bonus on all Gather information and Search checks. You may follow tracks in natural areas as well as urban ones (this feature supersedes the Urban tracking feat as well as Track) using Gather Information, Search or Survival checks, as appropriate.
If you already have one of the two feats you gain a +4 to skill check to follow tracks and you may take another feat.
Trial of justice (Su): Starting at 2nd level you may use the power from Law Devotion one time more per half your class level. In addition, you gain your Charisma modifier as bonus damage with weapons or spells against the specific target or targets you are hunting.
Aura of dreadful order (Su): At 3rd level you gain a menacing aura of lawfulness. Enemies of the erinys within 10 feet (3 meters) suffer a -2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks. Chaotic creatures in combat with the erinys take double the penalty, even if beyond 10 feet (3 meters). This enhanced penalty applies even to your designed target.
When chaotic creatures or your target are present, and you know where they are, at least approximately, you gain the effect of the spell protection from chaos until the encounter it's over. The spell's effects apply against your designed target as well.
Channel justice (Su): Starting at 4th level you may channel righteous fury through your body and soul to empower yourself. This class feature stacks with the favored soul's Channel divinity class feature and works the same. You gain the next level of Channel justice at 8th level.
Wings of Nemesis (Ex): At 5th level you gain a fly speed of 60 feet (18 meters) with good maneuverability. You may dismiss and return the wings as a free action. Otherwise it's always in use. This substitutes Spiritual wings.
You also gain the Flyby Attack feat for free. If you already have, it your maneuverability increases by one step.
Weapon of vengeance (Su): From 6th level your weapons and natural weapons gain the axiomatic special quality for free. They lose it if they drop the weapon. This effect applies even to non-chaotic enemies that the erinys has been tasked to punish. If the target is chaotic the weapon inflicts +4d6 instead of +2d6 of damage. This bonus stacks with the bane special quality or similar effects.
Shield of law (Sp): At 7th level you may use the spell shield of law as a spell-like ability once per day. Caster level is your caster level or your class level, if higher. The effect of shield of law applies even against your prescribed target.
Essence of Justice: At 20th you become a magical creature. You gain the outsider type with the lawful subtype (though beneficial magical effects still affect you, as if you were a humanoid or what you were before). You gain darkvision 60 feet-18 meters-(if you didn't already had it), but no other benefits from the outsider type, unless here described. Additionally, you gain a +6 to saves against chaotic effects (spells, similar magical effects or other abilities from any source) or used by chaotic creatures or by your target and you add your Charisma modifier as a sacred (or profane) bonus to your AC against chaotic creatures or your designed target's attacks (this bonus stacks with other sacred bonuses from your spells, feats or class features). Unlike other outsiders, you can still be brought back from the dead as if you were a member of your previous creature type.
