As the base system is changed classes must be adapted as well. This chapter deals with updating player classes, as well as the prestige classes presented in the d20 srd to consistently work with the updated underlying system.
A spellcasting class is any class that grants a spell point reserve or spells known.
Levels in prestige classes that advance the spellcasting progression of another class are considered spellcasting classes. However, as they do not have their own spellcasting progression, one prestige class that advances spellcasting progression can not advance the progression of another prestige class that advances spellcasting progression. This becomes relevant when dealing with unusual progressions such as that of the Mystic Theurge.
