    The Prestidigitator

    "I'm a one-trick pony, yes... but what a marvellous trick!"

    Prestidigitation is a favoured spell of hedge-witches and court wizards alike - an incantation of surpassing practicality and entertainment. A prestidigitator learns to unlock the true power and versatility of this simple spell.

    Prerequisites:
    To become a prestidigitator, a character must fulfill all the following criteria.

    Skills
    Knowledge (arcana) 8 ranks, Spellcraft 8 ranks.

    Feats
    Heighten Spell.

    Spells
    Ability to cast 3rd-level arcane spells. Ability to cast prestidigitation.

    Hit Die: d4

    Class Skills
    The prestidigitator's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Perform (illusions) (Cha), Profession (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), and Spellcraft (Int).

    Skill Points per Level: 2 + Int modifier

    Weapon and Armour Proficiencies
    Prestidigitators gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

    Heightened Prestidigitation (Ex)
    Beginning at 1st level, a prestidigitator may use prestidigitation to duplicate the effects of other spells. Whenever she casts a prestidigitation spell heightened to 3rd level or higher, she may instead duplicate the effects of any other spell of 1st level or lower, with the following provisos:

    The duplicated spell is treated as a spell of its effective level (rather than the level of the heightened prestidigitation) and any save DCs are based on the prestidigitator's relevant spellcasting ability modifier.

    If a duplicated spell appears at different levels on different spell lists, default the spell level to the sorcerer/wizard, cleric, druid, bard, paladin, or ranger version, in that order.

    If a duplicated spell has an XP cost, material component, or focus, the prestidigitator must meet that requirement. However, divine spells duplicated in this way are considered arcane spells for the prestidigitator (meaning that she does not need a divine focus to cast them).

    At 3rd level, the prestidigitator may also use a prestidigitation spell heightened to 4th level or higher to duplicate the effect of any other spell of 2nd level or lower.

    At 5th level, the prestidigitator may also use a prestidigitation spell heightened to 5th level or higher to duplicate the effect of any other spell of 3rd level or lower.

    Master Prestidigitation (Sp)
    At 1st level a prestidigitator may use prestidigitation at will as a spell-like ability.

    Spellcasting (Ex)
    When a new prestidigitator level is gained, the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if she had also gained a level in whatever arcane spellcasting class in which she could cast 3rd-level spells before she added the prestige class level. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If a character had more than one arcane spellcasting class in which she could cast 2nd-level spells before she became a prestidigitator, she must decide to which class she adds each level of prestidigitator for the purpose of determining spells per day.
