Class Features

Spellcasting: At each level except 2nd you gain new spells or infusions per day and an increase in caster level (and spells or infusions known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in an arcane spellcasting class or infusing class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. You do not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If you had more than one applicable class before becoming an unbound scroll, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells or infusions per day, caster level, and spells or infusions known.

1.Heir's Mark: Levels in this PrC count as levels in the ''Dragonmark heir'' PrC when determining the Caster Level for the spell-like abilities of your dragonmark, and the bonus on Favor checks, to a max of +5 effective ''dragonmark levels''.

1.Master Scribe (Ex): When you use the "Scribe Scroll" feat, reduce the gp cost by 5% per lvl in this class. This discount stacks with the "Extraordinary Artisan" feat.
F.ex: A 5th-lvl unbound scroll with that feat reduces scroll creation gp-costs by 50%.

1.Scroll Mastery (Ex): You gain a bonus = (levels in this PrC) on Use Magic Device checks made to activate scrolls.

2.Improved Arcane Mark (Ex): You can use the "Arcane Mark" power
of the Mark of Scribing +1 additional time per day for each of your class levels.

2.Strong Words (Su): You can expend 1 use of any of your dragonmark powers as a Swift action to increase the CL of a scroll you activate. The increase is based on the strength of the power you expend.

3.Modified Words (Su): You can expend 1 use of any of your dragonmark powers as a Swift action to apply 1 single metamagic feat that you know to a scroll you activate. You can't combine this ability with the ''metamagic scroll'' infusion (MoE p99) or similar effects. You are limited in the metamagic feats you can apply by level modifier, based on the strength of the power you expend.

4.Charged Words (Su): When you activate a scroll, you can expend 1 use of any of your dragonmark powers as a Swift action to increase the saving throw DC of the spell. The bonus is based on the strength of the power you expend.

5.Ghost Writing (Su): You can expend 1 use of any of your dragonmark powers as a Swift action to magically duplicate a single spell on a scroll.

The spell is covered with shimmering writing that appears to float above the page. When you activate the spell from the scroll, this ghostly writing vanishes but the original spell remains, ready to be activated again.

You can't use this ability to duplicate any spell that has a material component over 1 gp in value. The max level of a spell that can be duplicated is based on the strength of the power you expend.
