Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Abyssal Alchemist.

Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one spellcasting class before becoming a Abyssal Alchemist, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.

Black Alchemy (Su): Instead of using XP to cast spells, the Abyssal Alchemist may decide to use Demonic essence instead. Each CR worth of Demonic essence replace 10 XP used. This can be used both in item creation and spellcasting.

Entrap Fiendish Essence (Su): As a full-round action, the Abyssal Alchemist may harvest part of a dead Demon soul. She gains 1/2 the dead Demon's CR worth of Demonic essence (see black alchemy).

Fiend Transmutation (Ex):The Abyssal Alchemist gains a bonus to DC equal to Abyssal Alchemist level to all transmutation spells, applicable only against Outsiders with the evil subtype.

Recycle Fiends (Ex): At 2nd level, as a full-round action, the Abyssal Alchemist may recycle part of a dead demon. She gains 50 gp/CR worth of material components usable instead of any respective material components for any spells or item creation.

Vile Essence (Su): At 2nd level, all spells cast by the Abyssal Alchemist are effected by corrupt spell Metamagic feat for free without any increase in casting time.

Harvest Essence (Su): At 3rd level the Abyssal Alchemist class is able to fully harvest a demon's soul. When using entrap fiendish essence, she gains the ability to extract the full CR instead of 1/2 CR worth of Demonic essence.

Soul Alchemy (Su): At 4th level the Abyssal Alchemist gains the ability to cast spell-like abilities of any Demon she possess the essence of. She is restrained to the Demon daily limits and several other limitation. She cannot use the spell-like abilities of a Demon with a higher CR than her own and every time she use one spell-like ability the particular Demon's CR essence drops by 1. If she spends the fiends daily limit of all spell-like abilities or reduces the Demons CR essence to 0 and the soul is completely consumed.

Soul Corruption: Manipulating fiendish energy and transmutation of Demon souls has finally displayed its effect on the Abyssal Alchemist. At 5th level, her type changes to outsider and she gains the Demon subtype. The character's alignment does not change. The Abyssal Alchemist, however, may be raised as her former type.
