SPECIAL ABILITIES

Dark Arts (Ex)

All dark spells are increased by a 5 extra dice of the appropriate type.
All enfeebling spells’ durations are increased by 5.
All dark spells’ caster level are increased by 5.
The caster level checks made to overcome a creature’s spell resistance is increased by 5 for necromancer spells.

Greedy Feedback (Ex)

The black cait smell the gil on his opponents. He’ll usually target the person with the most gil and for every 1000 gil his opponent has increase his physical damage and attack bonus by 1.

Pay to Play (Ex)

The black cait can pay an ally gil to increase their physical and magical damage by 1 per 1000 (Max 6) for 9 rounds.

Telekinetic (Su)

As a standard action, the black cait may touch up to five items weighing up to 5 lbs., which begin to levitate in its space for the next 5 rounds. Immediately, and once per round as a standard action thereafter, it can launch one item at a target of its choice. The ranged attack is made as if you had thrown the item unless it’s ammunition for a weapon, in which case the attack is made as if fired from a heavy crossbow (if a bolt), a halfling sling staff (if a sling bullet), a blowgun (if a blowgun dart), a composite longbow with a +2 Strength rating (if an arrow), an atlatl (if an atlatl dart), or a pistol (if a firearm bullet). A firearm pellet launched by the spell functions as a shuriken.

When you launch ammunition with this spell, you don’t take a penalty on your attack rolls for lacking proficiency with the ammunition’s weapon; you do, however, take the usual –4 penalty for throwing an improvised weapon if you launch an item not intended to be used as a weapon. The attack roll uses your caster level in place of your base attack bonus and your Intelligence or Charisma modifier (whichever is higher) in place of your Dexterity modifier. Range increment and proficiency penalties apply as normal. The attack has an effective Strength bonus, if applicable, equal to the higher of your Intelligence and Charisma modifiers. The spell is discharged when all touched items have been launched. Blue mages may learn this ability as a 2nd level spell (Knowledge: Nature DC 19).
