All of the following are class features of the Ringmaster prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Wearers of purple gain no proficiency in any weapon or armor.

Spells per Day: Each time the character gains a level of wearer of purple, he gains additional spell slots and casting ability as if going up a level in his original class. If he has more than one spellcasting class, he must choose which class this benefits. No other level-dependant benefits are gained or affected.

Energy Resistance (Ex): Upon adopting the wearer of purple class, the character gains a resistance 5 to one type of energy (commonly acid, cold, electricity, or fire), as described in chapter 3 of the DMG. Most characters choose a resistance to the type of energy embodied by the dragon or dracolich they attend or expect to attend. at 3rd level and 5th level, the energy resistance increaes to 10 and 15, respectively.

New Domain: At 1st level, the wearer of purple gains a domain from the following list: Death, Evil, Scalykind. The character gains the granted power of the new domain. A wearer of purple's class level stacks with his cleric level for determining the effects of thesethree domain's granted powers. If the wearer of purple has no cleric levels, he doesn't gain the domain spells, but uses his levels in this prestige class to determine the granted power's effects.

Dracoride (Ex): Beginning at 2nd level, when riding any kind of dragon a wearer of purple uses his normal Ride skill score, even if he chose a nondraconic sort of mountwhen he first selected the Ride skill. In other words, he suffers no penalties for riding a "different" or "very different" mount when riding dragons.

Item Creation Feat: At 4th and 6th level, may choose Brew Potion, Craft Wondrous Item, or Forge Ring. The Wearer of Purple must meet all the prerequisites for the chosen feat.

Frightful Presence (Ex):
