Savant Of Heart And Mind (Archetype)

Truemagic: This works like the truenamer class feature of the same name, with the following exceptions.

Codex of Heart and Mind: The Codex of Heart and Mind concerns itself with living creatures, a topic to which a savant of heart and mind feels a certain kinship. A savant of heart and mind begins play with three 1st-level recitations from the Codex of Heart and Mind. At each new truenamer level, a savant of heart and mind gains two recitations from the Codex of Heart and Mind for which he meets all of the prerequisites.

Codex of Artifice: A savant of heart and mind never gains access to the Codex of Artifice.

Codex of Far-flung Spheres: A savant of heart and mind never gains access to the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres.

Codex of the Realized Vision: A savant of heart and mind never gains access to the Codex of the Realized Vision.

This modifies truemagic.

The Pulse of Life: A savant of heart and mind may choose to learn a recitation from the Codex of Heart and Mind a second time. If he does so, the Law of Finite Malleability only applies a +1 modifier to the truenaming DC of that recitation whenever it is recited. Further, in direct contradiction with the Law of Flowing Rhetoric, he may have up to two separate instances of the recitation in effect at any given time, not just one instance. Finally, the savant of heart and mind halves the Malleability DC Modifier of any inflection applied to a recitation he has learned twice, rounded up.

This ability replaces sympathetic link.

Reciter's Vitality (Su): Starting at 5th level, whenever the savant of heart and mind successfully recites a recitation from the Codex of Heart and Mind, he gains fast healing 1 for a number of rounds equal to the recitation level of that recitation. At 11th level and 17th level, the amount of fast healing gained in this manner increases by +1, to a maximum of fast healing 3 at 17th level.

If a qualifying recitation has the terse inflection applied to it, then the fast healing granted by this ability stacks with all other sources of fast healing.

If a qualifying recitation has the complementary inflection applied to it, then the remaining duration of the fast healing granted by this ability increases by +1 round whenever the remaining duration of that recitation increases due to the effects of that inflection.

This ability replaces linguistic familiarity.
