Devout Vows (Ex): A votary’s intense dedication enables him to reach a greater degree of physical and spiritual purification than many others. When taking Oaths, a votary may benefit from up to 11 Oath points’ worth of Oath boons rather than 10. This improves to 12 Oath points at 7th level, 13 Oath points at 13th level, and 14 Oath points at 19th level. In addition, the votary can select among the following unique Oath boons in addition to normal Oath boons (note that the sage’s ki pool counts as a spell pool for the purpose of gaining additional points for taking drawbacks). If the votary possesses Absolute Poverty, he gains 4 free Oath points worth of Oath boons rather than the typical benefits of this class feature.

Complex Training (Ex) (3 points): The votary gains an additional esoteric training option at 4th level.

Deep Meditation (Ex) (1 point): The number of bonus dice granted by the meditation class feature increases to his votary level from 1/2 his votary level. The maximum number of bonus dice you can gain increases to his votary level.

Elaborate Esotery (Ex) (see text): The votary gains additional esotery depending on how many Oath points he spends on this Oath boon, to a maximum of 5.

Table: Bonus Esotery

2 Esotery at 1st, 7th, 13th, and 19th levels
