Divine

Class Feats
• 3 feats +1 feat per level instead of normal class abilities
• Feats for each level and lower may be gained or swapped out depending on requirements met

Spellcaster Feats
Ideally every character gets the same number of bonus feats, but not so with "full spellcasters". The reason for this is because spells are more powerful than many abilities as it is. Characters won't begin with spellcasting, but must add it for their class through feats.
So, the maximum spell level cast and number of spell slots increase by the number of times "Spellcasting" is gained (in a specific class).

In any round while a character is casting a spell, they are flat-footed until the beginning of their next turn. Spell disruption occurs each time they are hit or fail a save.


CLERIC

Spellcasting (SpL): Choose a spellcasting class. For every odd time this feat is gained, increase the spellcaster level by 1 for that class, gaining all spell level, spells known, and spell slot benefits. For instance, 1 iteration of this feat grants 0-level and 1st-level spells of a single class, while the 2nd-level spells don't show up until the 3rd time this feat is taken.
The feat may not be taken more than once per level.

Divine Aura / Unholy Aura (Ex): Good or Evil. The character gains a +4 bonus to saves against spells that affect them due to their alignment, and +1 Deflection bonus to AC for every 5 levels (1, 6, 11, and 16). They appear to glow as if affect with a Light spell when appearing to users of the Detect (Alignment) spell effect. This ability replaces the Cleric class ability "Aura".

Dedicated Healer (Su): As a Standard action by touch the character heals 5 HP per level + WIS bonus + CHA bonus to any target. All damage removal of Cure spells and similar healing is maximized. At level 11 the healing touch cures an additional 5 HP per level and 1 hostile status effect of choice with each action.

Ranged Cure (Ex): Level 3. Healing spells, spell-like abilities, supernatural abilities, and effects that remove status effects gain a range of Close if shorter range by default. At level 11 those spells gain a range of Medium.


DRUID

Spellcasting (SpL): Choose a spellcasting class. For every odd time this feat is gained, increase the spellcaster level by 1 for that class, gaining all spell level, spells known, and spell slot benefits. For instance, 1 iteration of this feat grants 0-level and 1st-level spells of a single class, while the 2nd-level spells don't show up until the 3rd time this feat is taken.
The feat may not be taken more than once per level.

Wild Empathy (Ex): The character is affected by a constant Speak With Animals effect as by the spell description.

Animal Companion (Ex): Any Summon Nature's Ally spell cast may be given a duration of "Permanent (D)". Monsters summoned by the spell remain the same as an average entry; improvements are impossible. Personal spells may be shared with the animal if within touching range. At level 5 the character may sense what the summoned animal senses.


PALADIN

Divine Grace (Ex): Divine Aura, Good. Add Charisma to saves as a Divine bonus (up to a maximum of +1 per level) if positive.

Purifying Touch (Su): Level 7+. The character is immune to natural disease and poison, and gains a +4 bonus to resist supernatural disease and poison. Touching as a standard action will remove all disease and poison from a target.

Smite Evil (Su): Attacks deal +1d6 damage to Evil foes. Any critical hit against an Evil foe causes Dazed until the end of the target's next turn. At level 6 any Evil foe struck is subject to a Dispel Magic. At level 11 the character is constantly affected by Dispel Evil as by the spell description. At level 16 any critical hit against an Evil foe causes a Holy Word effect against them as by the spell description.

Special Mount (Su): Level 4+. The character may create a Phantom Steed at will as the spell but with a duration of "24 hours (D)". It gains the Celestial or Abyssal template to match the character's alignment, or as by choice if neutral. If the mount's HP is reduced to 0, it can not be recreated until after sleep.

Holy Light (Su): WIS 13+ or CHA 13+, Level 5+. A target within Medium range hit with a ranged touch attack takes damage equal to a single melee attack + CHA or WIS modifier (whichever is higher, if positive) + 5 more damage per odd level, double against Evil Outsiders and Undead. The damage dealt is Light type.

Holy Smite (SpL): Level 7+. As the spell.

Divine Rescue (Su): Divine Aura, Level 9+. As the spell effect Raise Dead affecting self only if the character dies with their body intact, but the character is optionally Teleported (if within range) to a temple or shrine of the same faith and may take place any time within limit of Raise Dead after the character has died. No level or Constitution point is lost.


BLACKGUARD / DARK PALADIN

Dark Blessing (Ex): Unholy Aura, Evil. Add Charisma to saves as a Profane bonus (up to a maximum of +1 per level) if positive.

Aura of Despair (Su): Unholy Aura, Evil. The character radiates a malign aura that causes enemies within a single movement distance to take a –2 penalty on all saving throws.

Overwhelming Aura (Su): Unholy Aura, CHA 13+, Level 7+. Enemies with less levels within 60 feet begin their turns Shaken as long as they remain within distance for that round. Attacks made against the character cause the enemy to become further Shaken (causing Frightened) if they fail a DC 20 Will save against Fear after the attack succeeds and if within range of the aura. Characters that pass their save are unaffected for the rest of the encounter.

Dark Shout (Su): CHA 15+, Level 11+. By speaking Dark Speech as a Full-Round action, all enemies within 100 feet must make a DC (10 + 1/2 level + CHA) Will save against Fear or become both Deafened and Fascinated while the character continues to speak, and take 1d6 Sonic damage per odd level.

Blood Eye (Su): WIS 13+ or CHA 13+, Level 5+. A target within Medium range hit with a ranged touch attack takes damage equal to a single melee attack + CHA or WIS modifier (whichever is higher, if positive) + 5 more damage per odd level, and the character heals a same amount. The damage dealt is Darkness type.

Unholy Blight (SpL): Level 7+. As the spell.

Smite Good (Su): Attacks deal +1d6 damage to Good foes. Any critical hit against an Good foe causes Dazed until the end of the target's next turn. At level 6 any Good foe struck is subject to a Dispel Magic. At level 11 the character is constantly affected by Dispel Good as by the spell description. At level 16 any critical hit against an Good foe causes a Blasphemy effect against them as by the spell description.

Polarity Shift (Su): Unholy Aura, Level 9+. As the spell effect Create Undead affecting self only, granting the character a ghoul template upon death. A Raise Dead or Resurrection restores the character to life, removing the ghoul template.

Divine Fist (Su): The character's melee, thrown, and unarmed attacks and damage gain a +1 enhancement bonus and another +1 every 4 levels (5, 9, 13, and 17).

At the player's option for each attack, all of the attack's damage may be of the Ki Strike's chosen type.

Nerfed some spells. For Sorcerers and Wizards using the same spells, refer to any new spell level changes here (they'll affect when Arcane casters get the spells too)

Level 0
Virtue - Gain 1 temporary HP per level, lasts until sleep.
It certainly becomes more worth while.  This also is almost as good as False Life, and is better on average after 16th level.  I don't think it's overpowered, but you probably won't see too many people using False Life with this variant.

False Life is too high of a spell level for what it does.

I do like your idea of turning being spells, although, so much of what I like about turning is all the additional support it's been given with splat books.  I can totally see the desire to drop that, though.

Divine Metamagic abuse, etc.

I never liked how it was a separate mechanic. Spell-like, and yet not spells.

Never mind the False Life comment.  I just noticed that on an Orison.  Besides, they're cross spell list anyway.

I'm curious to see how the Cleric's maximized/ranged healing and the Druid's perma-SNA work out in game play.

As for Diamond Body, should that be DR #/- instead of hardness?  Also, rather than a flat +5 every five levels, why not add the class level as a static bonus?  It gives less break points in the class.  Personally I think Con mod + level is a bit high, but I guess I'd have to see it in action to really judge that.  I've always used a rough bench mark of 1/2 level for permanent DR effects, but I don't have much playtesting to back up that preference either.

I thought half of hardness was applied to energy attacks and that was why he did that, but it isn't. It is just a property of objects to take half damage from energy other than acid and sonic.

Hardness applies to all effects, even energy attacks and untyped damage spells. However, objects take 1/2 damage from fire/electricity, 1/4 damage from cold, and full damage from acid/sonic (and depending on your reading of the passage, may have their hardness ignored by acid/sonic, YMMV).

Removed alignment damage types from Resist Energy and similar spells since there's nothing that deals alignment-descriptor damage.

Something else I noticed when reading for more detail:

Symbol of Death - Instead of killing outright with a hit point limit, deal 5 Death damage per caster level on a failed Fortitude save.
When you say "Death damage", does this mean that stuff like Death Ward protects against it?  Is it negative energy damage?

Why are so many posts on the board the equivalent of " Dear Dr. Crotch, I keep punching myself in the crotch, and my groin hurts... what should I do? How can I make my groin stop hurting?"

I suggest carving "Don't be a dick" into him with a knife.  A dull, rusty knife.  A dull, rusty, bent, flaming knife.

Shit I forgot to edit that.

When I write "Darkness" damage it could be synonymous with negative energy, same thing.

Added more Monk feats. Remember that anyone that meets the requirements can grab them. They're in categories for convenience, though.
