Planar Smite: [yet to be determined]
Channel Planar Energy: [yet to be determined]
Class Features: At each odd numbered level, you gain class features (including spellcasting ability) and an increase in effective level as if you had also gained a level in a class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain the benefit of your previous class's Hit Dice, attack progression, skill points, or saving throws. If you had more than one class before becoming a planar exemplar, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining class features.

Obviously this is far from complete. What I want to do is make a PrC that has you focus on what defines each plane. All based on a frame, but all with unique attributes. The base I built what I have from is the prestige paladin. Why? it seemed like a good idea. The elemental planes and the strong aligned planes would likely get something for [descriptor] spell/power/ect. caster/manifester/ect. level equals character level. So on, so forth. In any case, I could use ideas and help. Also, if I'm missing any planes, let me know. Im not including demi-planes, nor am I doing this for eberron (yet). It is a good setting and I might add on later, but for right now I want the standard cosmology dealt with and the rest of the class to be fleshed out.

And yes, I realize the pre-requisite table is larger than the class table. There's likely to be a lot more in the way of tables for this.
