Grace of the Sirens
"The best way to a man's power is through his appetite. And I do not mean his stomach..."

    The grace of the siren is a member of the sorority of the siren is a secret organization of women who seek to manipulate the world around them through their husbands, magic influence, and good deeds. They work to advance their husband's status in society and live a life of luxury. They also relentlessly strive to maintain and increase their beauty. Being a secret society, a candidate for the Sirens is sponsored by invitation by an existing member of the sorority.
    A member of the grace of the sirens prestige class is drawn predominately from the bard and sorcerer classes since the class requires them to cast arcane spells without preparations. It is not uncommon for members of the sorority to be multiclassed — even a few barbarian women who have come to enjoy the finer things of the cultured world are members of this society (it should be noted that they no longer advance in the barbarian class anymore). Rarely one finds a paladin or monk within its membership.
    Hit Dice: d4.

Requirements
    To qualify to become a grace of the sorority of the sirens, a character must fulfill the following criteria.
    Alignment: Any non-evil
    Bluff: 4 ranks
    Diplomacy: 4 ranks
    Gather Information: 2 ranks
    Innuendo: 2 ranks
    Knowledge (nobility and royalty): 3 ranks
    Perform (dance, poetry): 2 ranks
    Sense Motive: 4 ranks
    Feats: Persuasive, Spell Focus (Enchantment), Trustworthy
    Spells: Ability to cast arcane spells of 2nd level or higher without preparation.
    Special: Must be married to an affluent male of the society which they reside in, and be sponsored by a current member of the sorority of the sirens. Most husbands are not even aware their wives are anything more than a good wives and mother to their children. If a siren likes to adventure they will encourage their husbands to adventure and then 'invite' themselves along if they truly want to keep an eye on their husbands. Most will wait for their husbands to leave on a long journey and then they themselves go about adventuring. To the general public she (i.e., all those outside the sorority of the sirens) appears to be submissive and dutiful.
    In some cases the husband is cohort of the grace (i.e., the Grace has the leadership feat).
    A few graces are know to the membership to have extramarital 'affairs' that they keep secret since they cannot be seen as being unfaithful to their husbands. In some circles of graces this is discouraged.

Class Skills
    A grace of the sirens has the following class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Bluff (Cha), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Disguise (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Innuendo (Wis), Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Listen (Wis), Perform (Cha), Read Lips (Int), Scry (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Speak Language, Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis).

Skill Points at each level: 4 + Int modifier.

Class Features
    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Members of the sorority of the sirens gain no additional proficiency in any weapons or armor.
    Code of the Siren: The women of the Sorority of the Sirens follow a code of conduct that make them appear as the perfect wives to the causal observer and even to their own husbands. The code is as follows:
    ©  Loyalty to the Sorority of the Sirens above all else.
    ©  Always seek to do what is good and noble (not to be confused with what is lawful).
    ©  Always be respectful to men of good temperment
    ©  Be your husband's crown, further his ambitions that bring prosperity to one's family and society.
    ©  Be gentle and soft-spoken.
    ©  Exault your husband's good works before others; caution his folly while in the bedroom.
    ©  Assume other identities if needed.
    Spells per Day: A grace continues advancing in spellcasting ability as well as gaining the abilities of her new class. Thus, when a new grace of the siren level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in whatever spellcasting class she belonged to before she added the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (wild shape, additional feats, and so on). This essentially means that she adds the level of sorority of the siren to the level of whatever other spellcasting class the character has, and then determines spells per day accordingly. For example, if Iaztha, a 6th level sorcerer, gains a level as a grace of the siren, she gains new spells as if she had risen to 7th level as a sorcerer, but uses the other grace of the siren aspects of level progression such as base attack bonus and save bonuses. If she next gains a level as a sorcerer, making her a 7th level sorcerer/1st level grace of the siren, she gains spells as if she had risen to 8th level as a sorcerer.
    If a character had more then one spellcasting class before she became a member of the sorority of the siren, the player must decide which class to assign each level of grace of the siren for purpose of determining spells per day.
    Alluring: At 1st level, the grace gains Alluring as a bonus feat. (See Chapter 2 of the Song and Silence: A guidebook to Bards and Rogues).
    Glamer of Beauty (Su): A grace of 3rd level can boost her Charisma by 4 points once per day. Activating this power is a free action. The charisma increase lasts 1 minute. At 9th level and every 6 levels thereafter (15th, 21st, 27th, and so on) the siren can use this ability one additional time per day.
    Alter Beauty (Su): Starting at 4th level, the grace is able to cosmetically alter her appearance to a mild degree. This does not increase the charisma of the siren, but will allow her to look like another woman of the same weight but change slightly her height by one inch either taller or shorter, the shapely curves of her body, the color and length of her hair, adjustments to her facial features such as shape and length of nose, moderate adjustments to skin tone, and change eye color. These changes are considered natural and she will not revert to her original form even if subject to anti-magic, dispel magic, or if she is knocked unconscious. Changes in appearance can award the siren a +2 circumstance bonus to skill rolls involving a specific male that likes those particular feminine qualities. (Examples include: she can go from being a mousy brunette that is cute, to a hot red haired babe or from a soft-spoken, mild-mannered gray-haired lady; to an outgoing, fun-loving platinum blond vixen.) The ability to alter beauty takes 3 full rounds to perform and cannot be done while in an antimagic field.
    If the grace uses this ability to disguise herself as another woman that is close to her weight and size she gets a +10 bonus on her Disguise check. DM can adjudicate the bonus from +2 to trying to appear male, to +8 for a woman who is close but more then 1 inch taller or shorter then she is.
    Charisma Increase: When a grace reaches 6th level, and every 6 levels thereafter (12th, 18th, 24th, and so on), her Charisma score increases by 1. This is not an enhancement or inherent bonus: it is an ability score increase like any character normally gains every four levels.
    Voice of a Siren (Su): At 7th level, a grace's voice is so enticing that she weakens the ability of opponents to resist her spells. She gains the Greater Spell Focus (Enchantment) and Spell Penetration feats, but they only apply to spells with a verbal component (and are not altered with the Silent Spell feat).
    Eternal Beauty (Su): After achieving 10th level, a grace no longer suffers ability penalties for aging and cannot be magically aged. (Penalties she has already suffered remain in place.) Bonuses still accrue, and the grace still dies of old age when her time is up.

Widowed and Unwed Graces
    If they become unwed, either through divorce or being widowed, at anytime after they started to advance as a grace of the sirens they then cannot advance in the prestige class. They are not thrown out of sorority but she should continue to find another husband. Members of the sorority of the sirens help the unfortunate sister by arranging liasons and matchmaking for her. Others even go so far as to help seduce another man for the unwed sister. Once she is wed again she can continue to advance as a siren.

Epic Grace of the Sirens
    Those few members of the Sorority of the Sirens that achieve epic levels in this prestige class are revered as grand matrons of the sorority. Such graces are said to have the power to even seduce and tame the most wild and rugged of men. The world of men is theirs to command as they wish.
    Other Options: Those members of the sorority of the sirens that become so powerful that even those is the society in which they recide know them to be powerful leaders (they still not likely to know of the secret socity of the sirens), as such those graces will have such feats as leadership, Epic leadership and Legendary Commander.
