Gaining Meta Words of Power


Rules Questions


Did a Forum Search, had no luck.

I'm (re-)reading Words of Power, and falling gently in love. However, there's one thing that's very unclear: How do I gain Meta Words as a cleric? In Ultimate Magic, it says clerics gain all the Effect and Meta words "assigned to their respective classes" ... but then on the class list, there's no Meta Words assigned to any class.

Do I gain any meta words? Or do Words of Power clerics need to take a Feat (Meta Word Mastery) to gain any Meta Words (besides Boost) at all?

Clerics, Druids, Rangers, and Paladins: These casters know all of the effect and meta words of power assigned to their respective classes and may arrange wordspells using any words that their spell slots can use.

It is a poorly worded paragraph, but the "assigned to their respective classes" refers to the Effect Words. The 4 listed classes simply know all Meta Words as they become available.

Thanks for the help!
