    Mastery Talents
    There are 2 types of Mastery Talents. Learnable Talents are gained according to the table above. Automatic Talents are automatically given, when a Trissocate selects specific Associations.

    Learnable Mastery Talents
    Whenever a Trissociate can learn a new Mastery Talent, he selects one talent from the list below. This selection is permanent and cannot be changed, barring special and intensive retraining (read: DM fiat). Unless otherwise stated, all Learnable Mastery Talents are extraordinary abilities that are activated as a free action, and which do not require Mastery Meditation. The bonus each provides is an untyped bonus which stacks with everything else, but not with itself (so the same talent cannot be applied repeatedly).

    Save Boost: A Trissociate may spend 1 Mastery point as a free action to add his Trissociate bonus to all his saving throws. He can activate this talent even when it is not his turn. The effect lasts for 1 minute/Trissociate level.

    Fast Heal: A Trissociate may spend 1 Mastery point as a free action, to gain fast healing equal to half his Trissociate level (round down, minimum 1), for 5 rounds. This fast healing stacks with one other source of fast healing of his choice (changeable every round). He may choose to activate this ability even when he is dying, which automatically stabilizes him.

    E.g. Lets say a level 7 Trissociate (half Trissociate level round down is 3) is under the effect of the vigor spell which grants him Fast Healing of 2. He can activate his Trissociate Bonus Fast Healing of 3 points. He can choose to stack his Trissociate Fast Healing on top of the vigor spell for a total of 5 points of Fast Healing.

    Attack Boost: A Trissociate may spend 1 Mastery point as a free action to gain +1 to all attack rolls. The effect lasts for 1 minute/Trissociate level.

    Speed Boost: A Trissociate may spend 1 Mastery point as a free action to increase his speed for all modes of movement. The speed increase so gained, is equal to his Trissociate bonus multiplied by 5 ft. The effect lasts for 1 minute per Trissociate level.

    Skill Boost: Whenever he makes a skill check, a Trissociate may spend 1 Mastery point to gain a bonus equal to half his Trissociate level (round down, minimum 1) to that single skill check, regardless of how long the check takes (e.g. a Gather Information check may take several hours). He may also apply this bonus when he is taking 10 or 20 to that skill check (provided circumstances allow him to take 10 or 20 in the first place).

    Penetration: Whenever a Trissociate uses a spell, spell-like-ability, invocation, psionic power, psi-like-ability or soulmeld obtained from his Associations, he may spend 1 Mastery point as part of the casting / manifesting / invoking action, to add his Trissociate Bonus to caster, manifester, invoker or meldshaper level rolls, for the purpose of overcoming spell or power resistance.

    Resilience: Whenever a Trissociate uses a spell, spell-like-ability, invocation, psionic power, psi-like-ability or soulmeld obtained from his Associations, he may spend 1 Mastery point as part of the casting / manifesting / invoking action, to add his Trissociate Bonus to Dispel DC, making the effect harder to dispel. He can also apply this to the effective meldshaper level of his soulmelds, for the purposes of resisting suppression checks (e.g. Dispel Magic) and unshaping checks (Unshape Soulmeld and Soulmeld Disjunction). He may apply this bonus when he is shaping his soulmelds, and he must spend 1 Mastery point for each seperate soulmeld affected, and the effect lasts for 24 hours. Should he wish to regain the bonus beyond 24 hours, he must reshape his soulmelds and spend Mastery points again.

    Lingering: Whenever a Trissociate uses a spell, spell-like-ability, invocation, psionic power, psi-like-ability or soulmeld obtained from his Associations, he may spend 1 Mastery point as part of the casting / manifesting / invoking action, to add his Trissociate Bonus to caster level for the purpose of determining the effect's duration. Spells / powers / soulmelds whose duration is not affected by caster level (e.g. endure elements) are not affected.

    Extended Reach: Whenever a Trissociate uses a spell, spell-like-ability, invocation, psionic power, psi-like-ability or soulmeld obtained from his Associations, he may spend 1 Mastery point as part of the casting / manifesting / invoking action, to double the caster level, for the purposes of determining the effect's range. Spells / powers / soulmelds which have a fixed range (e.g. personal, touch) are not affected.


    Automatic Mastery Talents
    The talents listed below cannot be learnt. Instead, they are automatically known by the Trissociate, if he picks an Association that provides it. Some Automatic Mastery Talents are used by several Associations, and are described in the list below. Other talents are specific for a particular Association, and are hence described in the section for their respective Association.

    Unless otherwise stated, you need at least 1 Associate level, before you can apply Automatic Mastery Talents to abilities from that Association. Hence on your first level, you cannot apply Automatic Mastery Talents to the starter abilities of your secondary Associations. E.g. If you are Trissociate level 1, and have the Wizard Secondary Association, you start with single cantrip, but you cannot use Recover Spell to restore it after it has been cast, even if you possess the talent for a primary spellcasting association. Instead, you can apply Recover Spell to your Wizard Secondary Association only on Associate level 1 which is Trissociate level 2.

    Recover Spell (Association Name): You may recover an expended spell slot as if you did not cast it. This is a supernatural ability. By entering Mastery Meditation and spending Mastery points equal to the spell slot's level, you may restore an already cast spell. Level 0 spells cost no Mastery points to restore in this manner. If you are a prepared spellcaster, you may not change the spell that was prepared in that slot (this does not apply to spontaneous spellcasters).

    You can only use this to recover spell slots gained from the specified Trissociate Association. It cannot be applied to spell slots gained from other classes or Associations (although they may their own equivalent of this talent). You may accelerate the conversion process by spending more Mastery points. By spending Mastery points equal to double the spell slot's level, you may recover that spell slot as a free action, even when you are not in Mastery Meditation. Level 0 spells cost 1 Mastery point to restore in this manner.

    Recover Spell Like Ability (Association Name): You may recover an expended spell like ability as if you did not cast it. This is a supernatural ability. By entering Mastery Meditation and spending Mastery points equal to the level of the spell, which the spell like ability duplicates, you may recover 1 use of that spell like ability. Level 0 spells cost no Mastery points to restore in this manner.

    You can only use this to recover spell like abilities gained from the specified Trissociate Association. It cannot be applied to spell like abilities gained from other classes or Associations (although they may have their own equivalent of this talent). You may accelerate the conversion process by spending more Mastery points. By spending Mastery points equal to double the level of the spell, which the spell like ability duplicates, you may recover that spell like ability as a free action, even when you are not in Mastery Meditation. Level 0 spells cost 1 Mastery point to restore in this manner.

    Recover Power Points: You may recover Power Points. By entering Mastery Meditation and spending however many Mastery points you wish, you may restore 2 Power Points for each Mastery point used. You may not exceed your normal Power Point maximum. You may accelerate the conversion process by spending more Mastery points. As a free action, you may instead recover 1 Power Point for each Mastery point spent, even when you are not in Mastery Meditation. This is a supernatural ability.

    Boost Essentia Pool: Unlike other Mastery Talents, this does not require you to enter Mastery Meditation (although you can use it during Mastery Meditation if you wanted to). As a free action, by spending 1 Mastery point, you may add a number of bonus Essentia points, equal to your Trissociate bonus to your pool. This bonus Essentia lasts for 1 round. If you reactivate this ability at the start of each turn, it is treated as if these bonus points continued to exist from the previous round, rather disappearing/reappearing at the start of each round. Hence you do not need to reassign them (but you can if you want to as per normal). You may only spend 1 Mastery point each round in this talent.

    Recover Lay on Hands or Deadly Touch: You can add points to your Lay on Hands or Deadly Touch pool. Although you may not exceed your normal maximum pool size. While in Mastery Meditation, you can spend 1 Mastery point to recover a number of Lay on Hands or Deadly Touch points equal to (your Trissociate level + your Trissociate bonus + your Charisma bonus if any). You may accelerate the conversion process by spending more Mastery points. Even when you are not in Mastery Meditation, as a free action, by spending 1 point, you can recover a number of Lay on Hands or Deadly Touch points equal to half of (your Trissociate level + your Trissociate bonus + your Charisma bonus if any) round down, minimum 1. This is a supernatural ability.

    Emergency Turning: When you have run out of Turning Attempts, you can instead spend Mastery points to Turn or Rebuke Undead. To do so, you take the normal action to Turn or Rebuke Undead, but instead of using Turning Attempts, you spend 1 Mastery point in the process. You must have no more Turning Attempts before you can use Emergency Turning. You can only use this ability to Turn or Rebuke Undead. You do not actually gain extra turning attempts as such, and so this ability cannot be used to fuel Divine feats like Divine Metamagic. This is a supernatural ability.
