A mindchemist can reach incredible levels of mental acuity, but suffers lingering debilitating effects to his physique.
A mindchemist has the following class features.
At 2nd level, a mindchemist has honed his memory. When making a Knowledge check, he may add his Intelligence bonus on the check a second time. Thus, a mindchemist with 5 ranks in Knowledge (history) and a +2 Intelligence bonus has a total skill bonus of +9 (5 + 2 + 2) using this ability. The mindchemist can also use this ability when making an Intelligence check to remember something.
This ability replaces poison use.
A mindchemist may learn three languages in place of a discovery.
