"Some rely upon infernal magics of the darkest order, others on their books of arcane lore. I do not place my trust with such fickle arts, such miracles. I am a man of science." - Akassa Nafar, The First Anatomist

There are those who find arcane magic too chaotic and untrustworthy, those who find divine power too restricting, and those who value their souls over what pitiful spells a being of the lower planes could grant them, yet crave power over their fellow man. These mystical and often misunderstood men and women turn to the power of flesh, blood, and bone. Their magic comes not from arcane lore, or divine blessings, but from a strange and alien force they are born with, a strange connection with the bodies of others. Most of these individuals are born with a curiosity for science, and many become doctors and healers. However, some embrace the otherworldly powers they were born with and become Anatomists, spellcasters specializing in mastering the mysteries of bio-manipulation.

Anti-Magic Immunity: Through rigorous training, an anatomist learns to control and manipulate the bodies of other beings through her magic powers. She does not rely upon arcane or divine magic, making her immune to the effects of anti-magic.

Bleed Immunity: An anatomist has grown so knowledgeable regarding the blood flow of a human being, that she can automatically position herself in a way that prevents any effects of bleeding. This makes her immune to all bleed effects.

Iron Stomach: Over time, an anatomist has seen so much blood and gore, that he's completely unfazed by sights that would completely sicken and disturb a weaker man. The anatomist is immune to all sickening effect, and gains a +2 bonus against fear effects.

Next, make your abilities Supernatural, rather than saying they're magic that function in antimagic areas. (my bad)
I would postpone antimagic immunity for a really long time, or just get rid of it because it's the only debuff anyone can legitimately put on a caster.

Bleed immunity is such a minor thing that it should come online a lot sooner. Iron stomach falls into the same category.

Medic would be more useful multiple times per day for less healing.

No bonus to heal checks?

Where's the sneak attack?

Spontaneous or prepared caster?

5th level is so dead it hurts.

PrC or base class?

If you're making your own spells, they need better detail.


Looks like a fun concept though.

Actually, supernatural abilities don't function in an antimagic field either.
