    Default [Archetype] Whisperer (Wordcasting Shadowcaster) [PEACH]

    Instead of using necromancy on this thread, I have decided to create this to build upon what peacenlove has made. I hope it is enjoyed, and know that all feedback is more than welcome.

    Whisperer (Shadowcaster)[Wordcaster]
    A whisperer is a shadowcaster who draw words from silence, forming their own mysteries with the components that make up their brethren's repertoire. A whisperer has the following class features.

    Words of Shadow: A whisperer begins play knowing a number of effect or meta words equal to the number mysteries he would ordinarily know, the boost meta word, and as all the target words—even those that he cannot yet use due to the level restriction.
    Whenever he gains a level, he gains one new effect or meta word on odd numbered levels and two (or one of each) at even numbered levels.
    He doesn't select effect words from any class wordlist, rather he treats mysteries as effect words of an equivalent level. The resulting wordspell is treated for all intents and purposes as a mystery with a level equal to its final level.
    Given the nature of words, whisperers possess 'spell slots' as a wizard of the same level and gain bonus 'spell slots' based on a high Charisma score. Further breaking from convention, whisperers are not required to follow paths for their mysteries.
    This ability replaces the Path Mastery class feature and alters the Fundamentals of Shadow class feature and the Mysteries and Paths class feature.

    Mysterious Effect Words
    A table with 111 mysteries categorized as effect word categories.

    *Shadow Conjuration and Shadow Evocation, along with their their greater counterparts, copy effect words of the appropriate school instead of whole spells. For instance; Shadow Conjuration can be used to imitate the Servitor Effect Word, in any of it's forms up to IV, but the resulting creature is only one-fifth as strong as the real thing unless it is believed.
