Prophet (Legendary Cleric Archetype)

Employing a smaller variety of miracles, prophets are tenacious disciples of their faith who harness specific magical tools to accomplish great feats. Some may be lay priests who lack the formal tutelage of most clerics, while others could be chosen suddenly from the masses by a higher power.

Prophet Spellcasting

A prophet must prepare their spells ahead of time, but unlike a normal cleric, their spells are not expended when they’re cast. Instead, they can cast any spell that they have prepared, consuming a spell slot of the appropriate level, assuming they haven’t yet used up their spell slots per day for that level. The number of spell slots per day a prophet has is equal to that of a normal cleric, including gaining bonus spell slots if they have a high Wisdom score.

The number of spells a prophet can prepare each day is limited. At 1st level, they can prepare four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells each day. At each new cleric level, the number of spells they can prepare each day increases, adding new spell levels as indicated on Table 6-2: Prophet Spells Prepared. Unlike the number of spells they can cast per day, the number of spells a prophet can prepare each day is not affected by their Wisdom score. Feats and other effects that modify the number of spells known by a spellcaster instead affect the number of spells a prophet can prepare.

A prophet must choose and prepare their spells ahead of time by getting 8 hours of sleep and spending 1 hour praying or meditating. While doing this, the prophet decides what spells to prepare and refreshes their available spell slots for the day.

Like a sorcerer, a prophet can choose to apply any metamagic feats they know to a prepared spell as they cast it, with the same increase in casting time (see Spontaneous Casting and Metamagic Feats). However, they may also prepare a spell with any metamagic feats they know and cast it without increasing casting time like a wizard. They cannot combine these options—a spell prepared with metamagic feats cannot be further modified with another metamagic feat at the time of casting.

A prophet is always considered to have their domain spells prepared.

This modifies spellcasting.
