Spellcasting Advancement: At levels 1, 3, 4, and 5, advance the Spellcasting level of 1 class the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if they had also gained a level in a spellcasting class they belonged to before they added this prestige class. They do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (bonus feats, companion advancement, etc), except for an increased effective level of spellcasting. This essentially means that you add to the level of some other spellcasting class the character has, then determines spells per day, spells known, and caster level accordingly.

Initiated: As you have pledged yourself to the moon-goddess' service, you are also granted access to the greater clemency within her church. You gain either the True Believer (CD, MIC) or Initiate of Selūne (PgtF) feats.

Glimpse Possibility (Su): You may expend 1 use of either Turn Undead or Wildshape to gain a +1 Insight Bonus to all attack rolls and Saving Throws for 1 round; this effect lasts until the start of your next turn. At 10th character level, this improves to a +2, and at every 5 levels beyond 10th level, this ability increases by 1. Using this ability is a Free Action, but you may only use this once a round.
NB: A Druid who has infinite uses of a certain wildshape may not activate this ability with that wildshape form; you may still use your Turn Undead and Apsect of Selune uses, in these cases, to power this ability.

Turn Undead (Su): You gain Turn Undead as the Cleric class feature. If you already have levels in Cleric, add your Silver Sword levels to your effective Cleric Level, and add 3 extra uses of the Turn Undead feature.

Sword Proficiency: You gain proficiency with all Martial and Exotic Sword Weapons.

Channel Moon Blade (Sp): At 2nd level, the Silver Sword unlocks their iconic power, the ability to convert spells into the Moon Blade spell. Using this ability is equivalent to casting the Moon Blade Spell (albeit in a modified fashion).

You may sacrifice a prepared spell of a minimum of 3rd level to cast Moon Blade, as the spell; a spell slot of 4th level or higher acts as if the Moon Blade spell has the Heighten Spell metamagic feat (of appropriate level) applied to it. Furthermore, at the time of the channeling, the Silver Sword may sacrifice an additional 1st-level spell slot to make this spell last 10minutes/level, or a 2nd-level spell slot to last 1 hour/level.

Greater Channel Moon Blade (Sp): At 5th level of Silver Sword, this ability gains far greater flexibility. As a Standard Action, you may expend a number of spell slots to Channel a Moon Blade spell of up to the highest spell-level you may cast. 0-level spells count as 1/2 spell level for the purposes of this ability.
As an example, Mialee (Warlock 1/Cleric 5/Silver Sword 5; ECL 10) may sacrifice 2 Orisons and 2x 1st-level spell slots to channel a 3rd-level Moon Blade at ECL10; she may also sacrifice two 2nd-level spell slots to make a 4th-level spell at ECL 10; she may choose to expend 3x 2nd-level spell slots but will still only channel a 5th level spell (instead of 6th) at ECL 10, or as a 4th-level spell at ECL 10 that lasts 10 hours.

Serene Touch: At 3rd level, the Silver Sword of Selūne applies their Wisdom modifier to attack and damage with their Moon Blade. They also apply their Silver Sword level as a bonus to beat Spell Penetration checks for their Moon Blade.

Silver Sword Focus: As the Silver Sword advances in level, they gain greater familiarity with their style of fighting. They gain ONE of the following options:
Choose 2 simple, martial and/or exotic swords & gain Weapon Focus & Weapon Specialization with these swords; lose proficiency with all other Martial & exotic swords.
Gain 2x feats of the 2-weapon fighting line
Gain Weapon Aptitude (you can retrain weapon-specific feats to a weapon with 1 hour of practice with said weapon).
Gain Weapon Focus with all Swords you are proficient with.
Gain Weapon Specialization with all Swords you are proficient with.
Increase your Base Attack Bonus by +3; this may not increase your BaB higher than your current level.

The Silver Sword may select this Class Feature instead of gaining a feat by leveling up; each option may only be chosen once.

Bonus Metamagic Feat: At 4th level, the Silver Sword gains 1 bonus Metamagic feat they qualify for.

Empower Channeling (Su): The Silver Sword may expend a number of uses of Turn Undead to apply 1 Metamagic feat to their Channel Moon Blade or Greater Channel Moon Blade power. The uses are equal to 1+ the meta-feat's power. As an example, the Empower feat costs 3 Turn Undead uses; the Maximize feat costs 4 Turn Undead uses, etc.
This metamagic feat modifies the action of the Channel Moon Blade ability just as a metamagic feat would; thus, applying the Silence Spell feat would allow the Channel Moon Blade ability to function without a verbal component.
Finally, the Silver Sword must have the metamagic feat by virtue of Feat or Class ability they wish to use; they may not use a metamagic rod or Gloves of Extend Spell, for example, to supply this metamagic feat.

Aspect of Selūne (Su): At 5th level, you gain the ability to Wildshape 3/day to a limited number of forms. You may take the form of a Celestial Owl (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/owl.htm), a Giant Owl (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/owlGiant.htm) with the Celestial (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/celestialCreature.htm) template, or, finally, a Lycanthrope (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/monsters/lycanthrope.htm) with a CR no greater than your total Hit Dice.
If you already have Wildshape, such as by virtue of a Druid class, then you gain +1 use of all Wildshape forms and you add +3 to your Effective Druid Level to determine the Wildshape forms you can gain access to.
