Lyric Thaumaturge

PRESTIGE CLASS: This class is not available at character creation and must be unlocked by meeting special requirements, listed below. This class has 10 levels.

The lyric thaumaturge understands better than most how the natural harmonics of the universe pervade all things. Music might be its most pleasing form, but magical energy has harmonics of its own. The lyric thaumaturge has learned to make her magic and her music resonate into harmonic chords that enhance the effects of both.

Spellcasting: At each lyric thaumaturge level, the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if she had also gained a level in her bard class.
