Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level)
Like all members of the Church of Modroben, Autumneves are expected to be neutral in most affairs (excepting only the defense of death, time and fate). Their class features should not be used except in the manner of church business and in direct self-defense. It is very rare for Autumneve powers to be used against anyone other than undead creatures or necromancers. All of the following are class features of the Autumneve:
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. Blackshirts are enchantment specialists and gain an extra spell per day per level as other specialists do.
Spells: To cast a particular spell, you must have a Charisma score of at least 10 + the spell's level. Your bonus spells are based on your Charisma. Saves to avoid the effects of your spells have a DC of 10 + the spell's level + your Cha bonus (if any).
Consecrate: At first level, Autumneves may Consecrate three times per day.
- At seventh level, Autumneves themselves are always Consecrated thus that the spell affects any undead who can see them.
Max Blast: Once per day per Autumneve level, she may cast any Invocation spell with its damage die at the maximum possible result.
Add Effect: The Autumneve may add 1d6 damage to any Invocation spell by adding an effect onto it. Each level, starting at the second, the Autumneve gains a new effect, which can be stacked. For example, she can add 1d6 cold damage and 1d6 acid damage to a Fireball spell. The results of these effect add-ons can not be maximized with the Max Blast power.
- 2nd: Cold
- 3rd: Acid
- 4th: Lightning
- 5th: Sonic
- 6th: Fire
- 7th: Shadow
- 8th: Light
- 9th: Wood
- 10th: Mind
Hallow: At second level, Autumneves can cast Hallow one time per day.
- At ninth level, Autumneves always have Hallow activated thus that it affects any undead who can see them.
Shape Blast: At third level, Autumneves may shape the Area of Effect of spells like Fireball so as to spare living individuals held by undead. This requires the Autumneve to make a Will save with a DC of 20 for each person or object skipped over. This can be used any number of times a day.
Holy Smite: At third level, Autumneves can cast Holy Smite three times per day.
Bone Barrier: At fourth level, Autumneves may activate Bone Barrier, which functions exactly like the spell Blade Barrier except that it creates bones instead of blades, once oer day.
Flock of Cleaving: At fifth level, Autumneves can cast Flock of Cleaving once per day.
- At eighth level, this spell can be used three times per day.
Holy Sword: At sixth level, anything wielded by an Autumneve has the effect of a Holy Sword. After the Autumneve lets it go, this weapon will retain its bonus for one hour per undead killed by the Autumneve with it.
Searing Light: At sixth level, Autumneves can cast Searing Light three times per day.
Holy Word: At seventh level, Autumneves can cast Holy Word one time per day.
- At ninth level, Autumneves can cast Holy Word at will provided they concentrate and recite a long prayer loudly. In order for the spell to work, the target must hear it. The prayer last two rounds and must be completed continuously.
Cleaving Cloud: At tenth level, Autumneves can cast Cleaving Cloud one time per day.
