Ravenloft: Prisoners of the Mist Wikia

Necromancy is usually a poor choice for arcane spellcasters. Those who really want to master the deathless arts almost always pursue divine means. However, an alternative exists for those who desire power over undead, without losing too much of their arcane power. Enter the pale master, who draws on a font of special lore that provides a macabre power all its own.

The pale master will advance in his spellcasting if his primary class is capable of learning new spells through scrolls. He will gain new spells per day as though he had also gained a level in his highest arcane caster class. He will not receive any new known spells and may not select spells as he advances in pale master progression.

Due to limitations in the NWN engine, spontaneous caster classes such as Sorcerer or Bard will not receive spellcasting progression through this PrC. Spellcasting progression will resume with advancement of the base caster class and no bonuses will be granted from pale master levels. Arcane classes with fixed spellbooks (Warmage and Beguiler) are able to receive spellcasting progression since Beamdogs .36 update, though features such as Warmage Edge and Cloaked Casting will not progress.
