Class Abilities
Class Skills:
The mysticís class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are
Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Knowledge
(all skills, taken individually) (Int), Profession (Wis), and Spellcraft
(Int).
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Mystics are proficient with
all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor
or shield.
Mystic Bond: At first level, the mystic chooses one of the following bonds: arcane, divine, or nature. The bond she chooses will determine from which spell list she will be able to learn her spells and which ability will be her spellcasting ability. Once she makes this choice, she cannot change it at a later level. The choice of bond will also give her different choices for her Improved Mystic Bond at later levels.
Spells The mystic casts either arcane or divine spells, depending on her choice of bond. If she chooses arcane bond, she casts arcane spells. If she chooses divine or nature bond, she casts divine spells. In order to cast her spells, she needs a relevant ability score of 10 plus spell level. Arcane spells require intelligence, divine spells require wisdom, and nature spells require charisma. The mystic can only know so many spells (see chart above)and must prepare spells the way a wizard does. Each mystic must have a spellbook, prayerbook, or some kind of a written log of her spells known in order to prepare them each day.
Improved Mystic Bond: The mystics bond becomes stronger as she gains levels. At third level, and each third level afterward (6th.9th, etc.)
her bond strengthens. See the following table:
{table=head]Mystic Bond Progression

Arcane recall seems a bit weak. Perhaps try something similar to magus arcana pool? You may even consider making the bond more interchangeable (ie, each day, they choose a bond, or they get all three at once, etc) and have the extra bond abilities be more temporary. Otherwise, it looks great, and as I'm running a no arcane campaign right now, I like it in general.

Ive changed the three spell lists. I would love to get some feedback on the spells available to each bond. Thanks!:smallsmile:
