Mystic (3.5e Prestige Class)/Becoming a Mystic of the Chalice
From D&D Wiki
Becoming a Mystic of the Chalice
A man who would follow the path of the mystic of the chalice is a man who views the world as a great banquet. A mystic of the chalice sees the richness in the experience of everything, from drinking a fine wine to spilling blood on the battlefield. These mystics tend to be very optimistic, realizing that there is always something to be gained from every situation, no matter how dire.

All of the following are class features of the mystic of the chalice
Spellcasting: At each 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 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. If you had more than one arcane spellcasting class before becoming a mystic of the chalice, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Optimism (Ex): As the mystic begins to see all the oppurtunities in life, it becomes harder and harder for him to be remotely afraid of something, because why be afraid of something when everything could work out for the better in the end? At first level a mystic of the chalice gains a bonus to saves made against fear effects equal to half his character level.
Musings (Ex): As a mystic of the chalice thinks about the world, he finds inspiration in the smallest things, such as the way a drop of water falls, or how a single sprout can turn into a mighty tree. From these inspirations the mystic finds power, a strength of mind that is only understandable by few. At second level a mystic of the chalice is considered to be 4 levels higher than he is for the purpose of overcoming spell resistance and for qualifing for metamagic and item creation feats.
Drink Deep (Ex): As the the mystic truly begins to tap into the ocean of power in the world around him, he learns to focus himself, and bring forth an incredible display of magic. At third level a mystic of the chalice can take a full-round action once per day to focus the energies around him into a single burst, whenever he takes this full-round action, the next spell he casts is cast with a +5 bonus to caster level.
