As a lyric thaumaturge, you focus on spells and magical effects that harmonize with your bardic music ability. You have a wider array of spells available than bards do, and your bardic music makes your spellcasting more potent.
Spellcasting: At each level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known) as if you had also gained a level in the bard class. You do not, however, gain any other benefit the bard class gives you.
Bardic Music: You gain one extra daily use of your bardic music ability per lyric thaumaturge level. You can use bardic music from this class to create any effect you know as a bard.
Bonus Spell: Your knowledge of magic grants you the ability to cast more spells than the average bard. At 1st level, you gain one additional 1st-level and 2nd-level bard spell slot.
- At 4th level, you gain one additional 3rd level and 4th level bard spell slot.
- At 7th level, you gain one additional 5th level spell slot
- At 10th level, you gain one additional 6th level spell slot.
If you aren't currently capable of casting the noted level of spell, you gain the extra spell slot when that spell level becomes available to you.
Captivating Melody: At 2nd level, you gain Captivating Melody* as a bonus feat.
Spell Secret: Thanks to your facility for blending music and magic, you gain additional spells known for each spell level as you gain levels. These spells must be drawn from the wizard list and are thereafter treated as part of your class spell list.
- At 3rd level, you gain one additional 1st and one 2nd level spell known.
- At 6th level, you gain one additional 3rd and one 4th level spell known.
- At 9th level, you gain one additional 5th and one 6th level spell known.
If you aren't currently capable of casting a certain level of spell, you gain access to the spell secret when that spell level becomes available to you.
Sonic Might (Sp): Beginning at 5th level, you can expend a use of bardic music to add 1d6 points of sonic damage per spell level to any spell with the sonic descriptor.
