Affix Graft (Ex): Grafts are biological augmentations that the Vigean Priest can add to his own body. Each graft uses a Graft slot
Graft Slot: Every level the Vigean Priest gains a new Graft slot, which allows him to affix an additional graft to his body. Each Graft has a "slot", only one graft maybe be affixed to its chosen slot, this slot is chosen when the graft is applied. As the Vigean Priest levels up, he gains access to more powerful slots. If he would lose a Graft slot due to level drain, the Vigean Priest chooses an affixed graft to become inactive until he regains access to the slot.
Remove Graft: At level 2, the Priest learns to remove his grafts, which frees up a slot for future use.
Dissect: At first level the pries learns how to take grafts from slain creatures and place them in himself. For example, a Kobold would have highly developed nasal glands. A dragon would have its fire* stomach and wings. Up to two grafts may be taken from each creature, and they must be kept in a cooled enviorment 24 hours after being severed, or the graft is ruined.
Spellcasting: At each level starting at 2nd, 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 spellcasting class before becoming a Vigean Priest, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Graft Specialist: When the priest reaches 10th level, he is able to add grafts not only to himself but others. Each other non-Vigean Priest has one graft slot a graft may be placed in.
If the Priest ever loses favor with his God, his grafts stop functioning, and his body rejects them. This causes 1 point of constittion damage for each graft lost, and the graft is rendered unusable.
