Words of Power: Occult Utterances

Learning Words of Power

Mediums, Mesmerists, Psychics, and Spiritualists These spellcasters begin play knowing a number of effect or meta words equal to the number indicated on their respective Spells Known tables. Whenever they gain a level in their respective classes or a level of spellcasting in those classes, they gain new effect or meta words based on the same table. They may exchange words for other words, using the same rules they use for exchanging spells, except that they may not exchange target words.

Occultists: Occultists, for each impliment school he learns to use, adds one effect word of each level he can cast. An occultist may choose to learn a meta word in place of an effect word. This otherwise functions identically to that of other occult classes.

Class Specific Rules
Some classes interact with wordcasting differently than others, and occult classes are no exception. Each psychic wordspell is assumed to have a material, emotional, and thought component.

Medium: Mediums channeling an archmage spirit gain access to a single sorcerer/wizard word per level. Mediums channeling a hierophant spirit gain access to a single cleric/oracle word per level.
Occultist: Occultists may only use Effect words associated with the implement they are presenting. If an occultist attempts to combine effect words from two different schools, they must present both implements as part of the casting. If all three effect words are from different schools, only two need to be presented but the third implement must be on their person.
Psychic: Psychic wordcasters gain bonus spells from their psychic discipline just like their spellcasting counterpart and can cast these spells in addition to their word spells by using up the appropriate spell slots. They can exchange effect words for new effect words according to their normal progression, but may not exchange their discipline bonus spells.

Words By Class

Note: I have not created any unique effect words for psychic classes, even though they would be suitable to the task at hand. That being said, if someone wants to create such words I will add them to this.
