Shadow Technician

Class Skills
The Shadow Technician class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Craft (any) (Int), Disable Device (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (engineering) (Int), Knowledge (planes) (Int), Perception (Wis), Profession (any) (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), Stealth (Dex), and Use Magic Device (Cha).

Bonus Feats
A Shadow Technician can only select Item Creation feats and Metashadow feats as their bonus feats.
This modifies the shadowcaster's bonus feats class feature.

Shadow of the Machine
You gain either 2 bonus hit points or a +2 bonus to craft (any, chosen individually) and use magic device for every Metashadow feat you have selected or will select in the future. These bonuses stack and you choose which bonus to gain individually for each feat. Once selected these bonuses cannot change.
This modifies Shadow over Body.

Sustaining Shadowtech (Ex)
Over time you modify yourself with various shadow infused mechanical parts, slowly turning from living creature to automaton.
This functions all ways as the sustaining shadow class feature except as follows;
At 10th level, you gain the half-construct subtype unless you already possess the subtype or are a construct. You still however, unlike most half-constructs, still need to breath.
At 20th level, you become a Construct instead of a Native Outsider. You gain all other 20th level benefits of Sustaining Shadows.


Shadow Artifice [Multiclass]
Prerequisite: Artificer level 1st, Shadowcaster level 1st
Benefit: Levels in Artificer and Shadowcaster stack for the purposes of acquiring Artificer bonus feats, as well as for determining the caster level of Mysteries you cast and the effective caster level of devices made via Weird Science as an Artificer.
You gain access to mysteries for the purpose of creating devices with weird science.
Add Metashadow feats to the list of bonus feats you may gain as an Artificer. Furthermore, you may use metashadow feats when activating a spell trigger item (or spell completion item) containing a mystery, provided you possess the Metamagic Science class feature (and the Improved Metamagic Science class feature).


Shadow Golems
Imbued with an elemental spirit of shadow, shadow golems are golems that are animated by means of shadow magic, as opposed to more conventional methods and magics. These golems follow all the rules for creating golems of their standard counterpart, except as listed below. These golems appear similar to their standard counterparts, though they tend to be dark and muted in color and possess warped appearances.

All Shadow Golems are statistically identical to standard golems except they also possess the Shadow Mastery trait:

Shadow Mastery (Ex): A shadow golem gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls and damage rolls if both it and its foe are in an area of darkness or shadowy illumination. While in an area of bright light (such as sunlight or that caused by the daylight spell), shadow golems take a -4 penalty on attack rolls and damage rolls.
