Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level)
All of the following are class features of the Time Weaver.
Spellcasting: At first level and each level thereafter, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level and spells known 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 spellcasting class before becoming a Time Weaver, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Spells: To cast a Time Weaver Domain spells, you must have an wisdom score of at least 10 + the domain spell's level. Saves to avoid the effects of your spells have a DC of 10 + the spell's level + your favorite mental modifier (if any).
Permanency (Su): At first level a Time Weaver gains the ability to make specific spells permanent. He can either pay the indicated amount of exp down below or double the amount in gold to make these spells permanent. Spells that are made permanent this way are treated five spellcasting levels higher than originally cast in regards to all dispel magic like effects.Spells that can be made permanent are found in the list below. Note that the Time Weaver doesn't have to cast the spell himself in order to make the spell permanent. A Time Weaver can only make x-th level spells permanent if he can cast x-th level spells himself. He gains additional spells he can permanent as well as the list from the permanency spell list. More spells can be added under the DM's discretion.
All spells cost 1000 x Spelllevel + the exp indicated in the in the table. (Su):
|Minimum Caster Level||Spells Known|
|11||Arcane Sight, Greater||1500|
|10||Purify Food and Drink(purifies whenever food or drink is touched)||2000|
|12||Wall of Stone||2000|
|13||Detect Secret Doors||1500|
|15||Holy Aura(only self and Paladins)||5000|
|11||Speak with Plants||1000|
|15||Mage's Magnificient Mansion||100000|
Extra Time Domain (Su): At 1st level, a Time Weaver gains access to the Time Domain. The Time Domain is granted as additional Domain Slots if the Time Weaver already possesed a Domain. However Time Domain Spells can't be exchanged for other domain spells and acts differently in this regard. To cast a 1st level Time Domain spell the Time Weaver needs to be able to cast 1st level spells, for 2nd level domain spells 2nd level spells and so on. If the Time Domain is the character's only domain, he gains the ability to cast a domain spell of each spell level to which he has access once per day, in addition to those spells he already casts. Later gained Domains will grant him new Domain Slots for each spell level(this can only happen once). Prestige domains are presented and explained in the Cleric Domains section, beginning on page 107.
Extend Spell (Ex): The Time Weaver gains the ability to double the duration of any spell once per level per day. He can use more uses of this ability to extend the duration of one ability by 2x - 5x times.
Timeless Body (Su): The Time Weavers found a way to halt the aging of the body by intertwining them with the flow of time and magic which grants them: No aging, immunity to negative time effects and a +1 competence bonus on enchanting items.
