    Alignment: A mystic theurge痴 alignment must be within one step of his deity痴 (that is, it may be one step away on either the lawful-chaotic axis or the good-evil axis, but not both). A mystic theurge may not be neutral unless his deity痴 alignment is also neutral.
    Hit Die: 1d4

    Class Skills:
    The mystic theurge痴 class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (religion) (Int), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), and Spellcraft (Int).
    Skill Points at 1st Level: (Int modifier) ラ 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: Int modifier

    Weapon and Armour Proficiency
    Mystic Theurges are not proficient with any type of weapons, armour or shields.

    Spells
    Mystic Theurges keep spellbooks as a wizard does. A mystic theurge begins play with a spellbook containing all 0-level wizard spells, plus 2 1st-level wizard spells of his choice. For each point of intelligence bonus he has, the spellbook contains an additional 1st-level wizard spell of his choice. At each new wizard level, he gains one new spell of any spell level that he can cast (based on his new mystic theurge level) for his spellbook. At any time, a mystic theurge can also add spells found in other characters spellbooks to his own.

    Unlike a bard or sorcerer, a mystic theurge may know any number of spells. He must choose and prepare her spells ahead of time by getting a good night痴 sleep and spending 1 hour praying and studying his spellbook. While studying and praying, the mystic theurge decides which spells to prepare. He can prepare arcane spells from his spellbook or divine spells directly from the cleric spell list, and fill his spells per day as he wishes. He does not gain domains.

    Mystic theurges cast arcane spells just like a wizard and divine spells just like a cleric.

    Familiar
    Mystic theurges can obtain familiars just like sorcerers do.

    Turn or Rebuke Undead (Su)
    Mystic theurges can turn or rebuke undead just like a cleric of the same alignment does.

    Synthesis Spell
    From second level, a mystic theurge can cast an arcane 0-level spell and a divine 0-level spell at the same time, so long as they have the same casting time, or if one has a shorter casting time and you spend the greater length of time. They both take effect simultaneously, and you can choose new targets for each one unless they are both touch spells, in which case make a single touch attack (if needed) for both. To use this ability, both hands must be free to manipulate materials and foci, and to make somatic gestures. A synthesis spell always has a somatic, verbal, and divine focus component and they can't be removed.

    Every second level after second, the mystic theurge gains the ability to synthesise the next level of spells. The two spells to be synthesised must be one arcane and one divine, and must be the same level (not just cast from the same level slot, although heightening them is okay).

    White Lightning (Sp)
    Once per day per class level, starting from third level, the mystic theurge can fire a bolt of white lightning. This deals 1d6 points of lightning damage, plus 1d6 per 4 levels after 3rd, to a single target within 60 feet, and heals the mystic theurge by the same amount. Hitting with the white bolt requires a ranged touch attack, and if it fails the mystic theurge is not healed.

    What a nice class! The character gets all it need from a theurge without extra headache. Access to both spell lists? Checked. Double spell slots number? Checked. In a very exceptional way. You could prepare two spells in the single slot. A little cumbersome and requires advanced planning. On the other hand it solves biggest theurge problem: you have bunch of spell slots and little of actions to cast them. Nice balance of pros and cons. I'm a little sad that such fancy idea never crossed my mind.

    From meta-game perspective the class fulfils its purpose partially: it gives theurge options as a simple class but makes prestige class theurging even more compelling. Synthesis spell class feature is very valuable, it effectively double spell slots, so it would give good incentive to go single class to the end. But player could resist the temptation and go along traditional prestige theurging routes using The Mystic Theurge base class (MTBC) as a better wizard, that have all wizards goodies and improved spell access. Like MTBC * 1 + Druid * 3 + Mystic Theurge * 4 + Arcane Hierophant * 10 + Mystic Theurge * 2. And get 9th level spells from druid, wizard and cleric spell lists in the end. The MTBC may be also used for improved theuring, fulfilling both arcane and divine caster prerequisite from single class. Like taking MTBC with the Warlock class and advancing both with the Eldritch Disciple at first and the Eldritch Theurge at second: MTBC * 2 + Warlock * 2 + Mystic Theurge * 1 + Eldritch Disciple * 10 + Eldritch Theurge * 5
