Studied Theologist (Wizard/Cleric)

Most faithful spend their time devoted to a single god, worshiping them, and seeking for favors and gifts in return. Not so of the studied theologist, who spends his time researching and delving into the secrets of divine magic, and through unique understanding can create divine spells just as a wizard can create arcane. Studied theologists usually follow a belief that what is considered good or worthwhile should not be revealed determined by the countless gods and that only personal logic and reasoning can lead to true enlightenment and righteousness. Some others worship a deity, but only out of genuine respect for what the god stands for. (Original Concept by Bandw2)

At 1st level, a studied theologist specializes in one school of magic, gaining additional spells and powers based on that school. The studied theologist chooses one spell of each spell level from his school of magic. Once chosen they cannot be changed. The studied theologist also selects one domain (or subdomain) that represents his spiritual inclinations and abilities. If he chooses a deity, this domain must be one granted by his god. A studied theologist also gains domain spell slots in which to prepare his domain spells or his chosen school spells. This ability otherwise functions as the cleric’s domain ability and replaces arcane school.
