Extracts (Sp): The Venomous Scholar’s class levels stack with alchemist levels for the purposes of learning, preparing and using extracts.
Poison Resistance (Ex): Venomous Scholars gain a bonus equal to their class level on saving throws against poison.
Potent Alchemy (Ex): When using an alchemical item, the Venomous Scholar adds his class level to the saving throw, if any. He adds his Intelligence modifier to the damage, if any, of any alchemical item he uses. He multiplies the duration of any non-instantaneous alchemical item by his class level. The Venomous Scholar adds his class level to Craft alchemy skill checks. The Venomous Scholar can cast detect poison at will, with a caster level equal to his character level.
Bomb Brewer (Su): Beginning at 2nd level, the Venomous Scholar adds half his level to his alchemist level for the purposes of determining the effects of his bomb ability, and when determining the number of bombs he gains per day.
Discovery (Ex, Sp, or Su): At 2nd level and every even level thereafter, the Venomous Scholar gains an alchemist discovery. His Venomous Scholar levels stack with alchemist levels for the purposes of meeting the requirements of alchemist discoveries.
Poison Immunity (Ex): At 3rd level, the Venomous Scholar becomes immune to poison.
Overwhelming Poison (Ex): At 5th level, the Venomous Scholar learns how to create potent poisons. Any poison crafted by the Venomous Scholar is difficult to detect; anyone who casts detect poison must make a caster level check with a DC equal to 10 + the Venomous Scholar’s level + the Venomous Scholar’s Intelligence modifier. The Venomous Scholar’s poisons can affect creatures that are normally immune to poison by making a level check (1d20 + the Venomous Scholar’s class level) with a DC equal to the target’s number of hit dice. If the Venomous Scholar created the poison he using, he adds his Intelligence modifier to the level check.
Persistent Poisons (Ex): At 7th level, when the Venomous Scholar uses a poison, its duration increases by a number of rounds equal to his Intelligence modifier, and the number of successful saves to be cured of the poison increases by 1.
Instant Alchemy (Ex): At 9th level, the Venomous Scholar can create alchemical items with almost supernatural speed. He can create any alchemical item as a full-round action if he succeeds at the Craft (alchemy) check and has the appropriate resources at hand to fund the creation. He can apply poison to a weapon as an immediate action.
Poison Touch (Ex): At 10th level, the Venomous Scholar gains a poisonous touch, as if under the effects of a poison spell. He can suppress or activate this ability as a free action. The physical appearance of how the Venomous Scholar generates and delivers his poisonous touch varies from Venomous Scholar to Venomous Scholar.
