Deathmoth Disciple

The Deathmoth Disciple hail from a forbidden tradition, enshrining the Deathmoth, a terribly poisonous flying insect as a sacred being. The Deathmoth Disciple are skilled in the use of poison, including eventually creating the legendary toxin itself. Unlike the typical Iaijutsu Master, they sacrifice their ability to react quickly and instead become extremely skilled in delivering injury and contact poison through their favored weapons.

If she possesses more than one poison on her blade, she must divide that bonus among them.

Poison Resistance (Ex): A 3rd level Deathmoth Disciple receives half her class level as an alchemical bonus on saves made against the effect of poisons.
