« on: November 05, 2011, 10:44:13 PM »

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The sage is proficient with the club, dagger, heavy crossbow, light crossbow, and quarterstaff, but not with any type of armor or shield.

Lore (Ex): Thanks to long hours of study, a sage has a wide range of stray knowledge. This ability is identical to the bard's bardic knowledge class feature, using the sage's class level in place of the bard level.

Knowledge Power (Sp): At 1st level a sage learns one 0th-level divination spell which he can use as a spell-like ability with a caster level equal to his class level. Unlike most spell-like abilities, he must pay any XP and/or GP costs as normal. At every odd level thereafter the sage learns another spell of one level higher. A sage has a number of "insight points" per day equal to his class level; using a Knowledge Power expends IP equal to the level of the spell +1.

Spell Power: At every 4th level, the caster level of the sage's Knowledge Powers increases by 1 (eg. a 20th-level sage would have CL25).

Skill Bonus (Ex): The sage chooses one skill and receives an insight bonus on checks made with that skill equal to half his class level.
