    Class Features: All of the following are class features of the Ovis Cantus:

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The Ovis Cantus gains automatic proficiency with the natural slam attack he gains through this class. Additionally, he does not take the standard -4 penalty for making an attack with an improvised weapon that is related to cooking, such as a frying pan or a knife. He may deal lethal damage with these improvised weapons, at his option. He gains no other proficiencies with weapons or armor.

    Time for a Taste Test (Su): A true chef knows to test how spicy his ingredients are before he begins cooking. As a full-round action, the Ovis Cantus may assume a defensive stance. He may not make any attacks or attacks of opportunity until the beginning of his next turn, and he does not threaten any squares until the beginning of his next turn. Any spell, spell-like ability, psionic power, or psi-like ability that allows spell/power resistance and would affect him before the beginning of his next turn instead does not affect him, as if he had the golem's Magic Immunity ability. Instead, the Ovis Cantus gains a number of temporary hit points equal to 3 times the spell/spell-like ability/psionic power/psi-like ability's spell/power level, which fade in one hour. All temporary hit points the Ovis Cantus gains from the Time for a Taste Test ability stack. Additionally, while in his defensive stance, the Ovis Cantus may use his Profession (Chef) skill to identify any spell or power that is being cast/manifested as if it was the Spellcraft/Psicraft skill.

    Master Chef (Ex): Anything you can cook, the Ovis Cantus can make better. He receives a bonus to Profession (Chef) checks and Craft checks related to cooking and baking equal to one-half his character level (minimum +1). Additionally, Profession (Chef) and Craft are always treated as class skills for the Ovis Cantus, and he may always take 10 on such checks, even when he is threatened or distressed.

    Game Master by Proxy (Ex): While the Ovis Cantus is no leader, he is definitely the sous chef in this kitchen. Starting at 2nd level, the Ovis Cantus receives a bonus to his saving throws and Armor Class against attacks, special attacks, spells, psionic powers, spell-like abilities, psi-like abilities, and supernatural attacks/abilities equal to his class level. This bonus only applies when the source of the attack, special attack, etc., is a creature whose HD is lower than the Ovis Cantus' HD.

    I'll Pound You! (Ex): The Ovis Cantus's arms are strong enough to tenderize even the toughest meat. At 3rd level, the Ovis Cantus gains a natural slam attack, which deals damage equal to a longsword sized for the Ovis Cantus (or for one Size larger than him, if he has Powerful Build or a similar ability). However, the Ovis Cantus is able to deliver this slam as fast a monk's unarmed strike. He receives iterative attacks with his slam as if it were a manufactured weapon (similar to an unarmed strike), although he may still combine it with other natural weapons using the normal natural attack rules if he so wishes. He treats his slam attack as both a natural weapon and a manufactured weapon, and may enchant it as if it were masterwork.

    Now We're Boiling! (Ex): Once the pot has reached a boil, the chef is ready to start adding in ingredients! Beginning at 4th level, as long as the Ovis Cantus's temporary hit points from his Time for a Taste Test class feature equal or exceed his character level, he receives a bonus to all attack and damage rolls equal to his class level. These bonuses immediately end if the Ovis Cantus's temporary hit points from his Time for a Taste Test class feature fall below his character level.

    My Secret Spice (Ex): A creature whose heart is charcoal-black with envy...she is just the ingredient any chef needs to make the most delicious meal of his career! Beginning at 5th level, the Ovis Cantus can inspire jealousy in any creature who has selfishness buried in their heart. To do this, an Ovis Cantus must spend a full-round action and make a Sense Motive check against a creature with an Intelligence of 3 or higher who shares a language with him. The creature must be able to hear him. The creature opposes his Sense Motive check with a Will save. If the target creature is of the Good alignment, it receives a +4 bonus to its Will save. If the Ovis Cantus succeeds, the creature is overcome with jealousy and despair, and takes a -4 morale penalty to its attack rolls, saving throws, ability checks, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls for 1 round per class level. This is a mind-affecting, sonic, language-dependent extraordinary ability.

    I'll Mince You! (Ex): Once the ingredients have been added to the bowl, a chef has to stir it up properly. At 6th level, the Ovis Cantus gains the Awesome Blow feat as a bonus feat. He need not meet the prerequisites. If he has the Powerful Build ability, he is treated as one Size larger for the purposes of the Awesome Blow feat. If the Ovis Cantus chooses to use the Awesome Blow feat with his slam attack, he takes no penalty to his attack roll, and he may send the creature flying an additional 5' per 5 points of damage he deals to the creature with his slam attack.

    I'll Char Your Bones Black! (Sp): It's a sad fact that every chef faces, some picky eaters just like their meals...well-done. At 7th level, the Ovis Cantus gains the ability to cast chain lightning, as the spell, as a spell-like ability at will, with a caster level equal to his character level. The save DC is 16+the Ovis Cantus's Charisma modifier. After using this ability, the Ovis Cantus must wait 1d4 rounds before using it again.

    Lambs to the Slaughter (Ex): The water is boiling, the meat is tender, and the pot has been stirred. All that's left to add is the chef's secret spice! Beginning at 8th level, the Ovis Cantus can (with great effort), temporarily strip the will to live from any person he has depressed with his My Secret Spice class feature. As a full-round action, the Ovis Cantus can make a Diplomacy check against a creature who is currently suffering morale penalties from his My Secret Spice class feature. The creature opposes his check with a Will save with a +4 bonus (effectively negating the -4 penalty to its saving throws from My Secret Spice). If the Ovis Cantus succeeds, on its next turn the creature falls prone and lies helpless for 1 round, after which its resolve returns, and it no longer takes any morale penalties from My Secret Spice. After the creature's resolve returns, it becomes immune to the Ovis Cantus's My Secret Spice and Lambs to the Slaughter abilities for 24 hours.

    We've Preheated Long Enough! (Ex): A chef knows when the time has come to stop seasoning the meat, turn up the heat, and put it in the oven. Starting at 9th level, as long as the Ovis Cantus's hit points (including temporary hit points) are less than half of his maximum hit points, the Ovis Cantus receives a +4 morale bonus to his Strength, Dexterity, and Wisdom scores, as well as damage reduction 5/-, and a +5 bonus to the DC of his Awesome Blow feat. These bonuses immediately end whenever the Ovis Cantus's hit points equal or exceed half of his maximum hit points.

    The Perfect Dish (Ex): At long last, after all the preparations and cooking are complete, it is time to feast on the dish! Beginning at 10th level, whenever an Ovis Cantus brings a creature to -10 or below hit points with a melee attack, he revels in the conclusion of his cooking, and he immediately receives an additional turn in combat after his current turn concludes. This ability can trigger off of additional kills made during extra turns, but he cannot gain more than 5 turns in a single round with this ability.

    Gourmet Cuisine (Ex): An Ovis Cantus is well-known throughout the entire Material Plane for his legendary cooking skills. Starting at 10th level, the Ovis Cantus may always take 20 on Profession (Chef) checks and Craft checks related to cooking and baking when he is not threatened, even if there is some penalty for failure. He earns 10 times the ordinary amount of money for any Profession (Chef) checks he makes.
