Spells per Day: A Hand of Sospitas continues her previous growth as a divine spellcaster. Thus, when a new Hand of Sospitas level is gained, the character gains new spells per day as if she had also gained a level in whatever divine spellcasting class she belonged to before she added the prestige class. She does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained. If a character had more than one divine spellcasting class before she became an Hand of Sospitas, she must decide to which class she adds each level of Hand of Sospitas for purposes of determining spells per day.

Perfected Healing: This ability reduces for certain spells the number of spell slots higher needed to utilize the Maximize Spell feat. The numbers within the chart represent the number of levels higher than the spell's actual level needed to memorize it as a maximized spell. This ability does not grant the user access to the spells listed below.
