Recitations per Day

A trueshaper's levels in the trueshaper prestige class stack with the levels of a reciting class he belonged to before adding the prestige class for the purpose of determining his effective caster level against dispel attempts, as well as for determining the highest level recitation he can recite. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained, such as new recitations known. Instead, at each new trueshaper level, a trueshaper learns a single recitation from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres for which he meets all of the prerequisites.

Clouded Curse (Ex)

At 1st level, the trueshaper gains the clouded vision oracle curse. For the purpose of this curse, his effective oracle level is equal to his effective caster level against dispel attempts made against his trueshaper recitations. If the trueshaper already has the clouded vision oracle curse from another source, then he adds his levels from that other source to his effective caster levelÍž if the curse's other source would result in a higher effective oracle level, then he uses that instead.

Coalescing Spheres (Sp)

At 1st level, a trueshaper's recitations begin to manifest in a slightly different manner. All recitations from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres have the following characteristics. This overrides their normal behavior.

  • Range: 30 feet
  • Area: 20foot radius centered on you
  • Special: All recitations from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres remain centered on the trueshaper as he moves. At 3rd level and 5th level, the radius of recitations from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres increases by +5 feet, to a maximum of 30 feet at 5th level.

Inflections

At 2nd level and 4th level, the trueshaper gains an inflection for which he meets all of the prerequisites. This inflection may only be applied to recitations from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres.

Eye of the Storm (Sp)

At 3rd level, whenever the trueshaper recites a recitation from the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres, he may choose not to include himself in its effects, though it still follows him as he moves.

Master of Spheres

At 5th level, both of the Codex of Far-Flung Spheres-exclusive inflections the trueshaper chose at 2nd and 4th level have their Malleability DC Modifier reduced by 1, to a minimum of +0.
