Spells per Day/Spells Known:
When a new Starchild level is gained(except 1 and 10), the character gains new spells per day (and spells known, if applicable) as if he had also gained a level in whatever spellcasting class in which he could cast 3rd-level spells before he added the prestige class level. He does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If a character had more than one spellcasting class in which he could cast 3rd-level spells before he became a Starchild, he must decide to which class he adds each level of Starchild for the purpose of determining spells per day.
He continues to advance bardic music just as if he gained a new level of bard, he does not however gain any new songs.
Angel of Death (Ex):
A first level Starchild learns how to never be defenceless, as he musters the strength of his bloodline. He can summon one instrument of his choice as a standard action. While playing the instrument he gains a bonus to preform(chosen instrument) checks equal to his Starchild level.
Through the Fire and Flames (Su):
At 2nd level the Starchild can play his instrument with such power that divine energy shoots from it. When playing his chosen instrument he can use a standard action to shoot a ray at one target within medium range(100ft. + 10 per Starchild level). If it hits the target is instantly dealt 1d6 damage per Starchild level. The Starchild can use his charisma modifier instead of his dexterity modifier on this roll.
At 4th level this increases to 1d8 per starchild level. He also gains an additional feature of this ability. Anytime you use your countersong ability succesfully(the ally makes his/her save with the preform check) you gain a instant use of this ability usable as an immediate action.
At 8th level this increases to 2d6 per starchild level.
More metal than you (Ex):
The divine power starts to protect the Starchild from his enemies. At 3rd level he gains an insight bonus to his AC equal to his charisma modifier(to a maximum of his Starchild level).
On the Backs of Angels (Ex):
At 5th level the Starchild manifests the divine blood in the form of wings. He gains a flight speed of 60 ft. with good manueverability. These wings appear as either black feathers or bat wings.
Thank God for the Suffering (Su):
A Starchild of 6th level is no longer affected by pain and merely discards it. Any time he takes damage he gains a +1(to a maximum of his Starchild level) to all skill checks and rolls for 1 hour(The timer resets each time he gains the bonus).
Fear of the Dark (Sp):
A Starchild of 7th level has learned how to channel darkness into the world. As a standard action he can start or stop emnating a deeper darkness spell centered around himself. Any enemy within the darkness must succeed on a will save(DC 10 + Starchild level + Charisma modifier) or become shaken. The Starchild can now also see through any darkness even those magical in origin.
Go Forth and Die (Sp):
At 9th level the Starchild can strike so deeply into his enemies hearts that they wither away. He can spend a full round to target one enemy. That enemy must succeed on a fortitude save(DC 10 + character level + Charisma modifier) or die instantly.
At 10th level the Starchild reaches the ultimate metal achievement. He learns how Keith Richard has achieved immortality. He becomes a dry lich with no xp penalty or LA. His canopic jars instantly appear with his organs removed, he may then place them where he wishes.
Part of the Asgardian pantheon, The Metal was spawned when the berserks and barbarians lusted for music. This god created the music and he smote all those who stood against it.
