Oral Mysticism School

An oral mystic can manipulate the inherent power of the spoken word, to the point that he becomes resistant, even immune to magic effects that attempt to prevent his verbalizations. The school of oral mysticism school focuses on powers associated to language, lore, and the realm of spirits. This school complements the Quipu Mystic multiclass archetype.

Great Orator (Ex)

At 1st level, a quipu mystic gains Perform (oratory) as a class skill. The wizard can use his bonus in his Perform (oratory) skill in place of his bonus in another skills. When substituting in this way, the quipu mystic uses his Perform (oratory) skill bonus in place of one of the following skills, whether or not he has ranks in that skill or if it is a class skill. At 6th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, the quipu mystic can select an additional skill to substitute. The quipu mystic can choose from the following skills: Bluff, Diplomacy, Handle Animal, Intimidate, or Sense Motive.

Relentless Words (Ex)

At 1st level, a quipu mystic’s verbalizations are insuppressible. He gains a +2 bonus to all saving throws against effects that attempt to silence or suppress a spell’s verbal component (as the forced quiet or silence spell), or language-based effects, such as his bardic performance ability. This bonus increases to +4 at 5th level, and +6 at 8th level. At 10th level, a quipu mystic is immune to such effects. Due to his irrepressible voice, a quipu mystic can never benefit from the Silent Spell metamagic feat, and all his spells have a verbal component, even if it does not normally have one.
