The keeper is a repository for all the beliefs and vast knowledge of an elvaan people. She shows a strong interest in and understanding of histories and creation legends at a young age, and as she matures her calling to serve as the memory of her long-lived people becomes clear to all who know her.
The keeper is an archetype of the astrologian class, available only to elvaan astrologians.
A keeper adds Knowledge (arcane) and Knowledge (local) to her list of class skills. Whenever she makes a Knowledge check of any kind about a question regarding elvaans (creatures of the elvaan subtype), the keeper adds half her astrologian level on her check.
This ability replaces prescience.
Elvaan Arcana (Ex)
At 2nd level, a keeper’s mastery of elvaan legends and philosophy has allowed her to master one spell used by elvaan mages. She selects one spell from the black mage spell list that is at least one level lower than the highest-level astrologian spell she can cast. The keeper gains this as a bonus spell known. The spell is treated as one level higher than its true level for all purposes. The keeper may choose an additional spell at 4th, 6th, 8th, 10th, 12th, 14th, 16th, and 18th levels.
This ability replaces forewarned.
