The following new mystery may be selected by an oracle upon taking her first level, and complements the Occult Philologist multiclass archetype.

Deities: Any.

Class Skills: An oracle with the words mystery adds Linguistics, Perform, and Spellcraft to her list of class skills.

Bonus Spells: comprehend languages (2nd), codespeak (4th), glyph of warding (6th), illusory script (8th), spellcasting contract (lesser) (10th), glyph of warding (greater) (12th), spellcasting contract (14th), word of recall (you must write the word instead of saying it) (16th), spellcasting contract (greater) (18th)

Revelations: An oracle with the words mystery can choose from any of the following revelations.

Automatic Writing (Su): Once per day, you can spend a full hour in uninterrupted meditation. During this period, your hands produce mysterious writing that pertains to the future. At 1st level, the prophetic writing manifests as an augury spell with 90% effectiveness. At 5th level, the writing takes the form of a divination with 90% effectiveness. At 8th level, the writing manifests as a casting of commune with no material component required.

Counterword (Su): You may counter magic effects and spells that depend on language or written texts, like a bard does with sound–based ones. This works otherwise as the countersong bardic performance, but may rely on audible or visual components, depending on the countered effect. You could, for example, prevent a symbol spell from working by designing a counter–symbol upon it, or write a counter–poem upon an explosive rune; but also reciting a soothing oration to counter a command spell. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
