Class Features
All of the following are class features of the miracleworker prestige class.

Weapons and Armor Proficiency: Miracleworkers gain no additional weapon or armor proficiencies.

  1. Miraculous
  2. Against All Odds [2/day], Spellcasting [+1 Spellcasting]
  3. Minor Miracle
  4. Against All Odds [3/day], Divine Fortune [+1 Spellcasting]
  5. Wonderworker [+1 Spellcasting]

The miracleworker performs the impossible and improbable in the name of his faith - conjuring food from thin air to feed his flock, reviving the dead, and escaping peril with unbelievable ease. He acquires Miracle as a bonus domain, gaining its granted power and adding its spells to the list of domain spells from which he may select each day.

Against All Odds [2nd/4th level]
He miraculously defies the odds. At the indicated levels, the miracleworker can use the granted power of the Miracle domain one additional time per day, granting himself and allies a +20 luck bonus to a designated dice roll. Against All Odds is supernatural.

Spellcasting [2nd/4th/5th level]
At the indicated levels, the miracleworker gains caster level and spellcasting ability as if he had also gained a level in whatever class met the Spells requirement of this prestige class. If he had more than one class that met the requirement, he must designate a single class to benefit from this progression, a decision that cannot be later changed.

Minor Miracle [3rd level]
He can perform minor miracles even when caught unprepared, altering reality to suit his needs. Once per day, the miracleworker can effect a minor miracle as a spell-like ability by expending his 7th-level domain spell slot. A minor miracle can duplicate any spell described in miracle but with a –3 penalty to the maximum spell level, and can undo the negative effects of spells that can be undone by both limited wish and miracle; it cannot duplicate any other effect of a miracle.

Divine Fortune [4th level]
The miracleworker emerges from harm unscathed again and again. He adds his Charisma modifier (minimum +1) as a luck bonus to his saves. Divine Fortune is supernatural.

Wonderworker [4th level]
In his god's name, he wills reality to reform. Once per week, the miracleworker can spontaneously cast miracle by expending his 9th-level domain spell slot, even if he does not have the spell prepared. This spell-like ability incurs any normal experience point cost of a miracle.
