Note: After creating your character, go immediately to the Styx Oarsman and request a tint fix. This will prevent a perma loose of your wings later.
A note on spellcasting prestige classes: To meet the spellcasting requirement for a prestige class brachina prestige class levels do not count, only levels in the base class count. So for example a brachina who wants to become eldritch knight will require 6 levels of sorcerer, the levels that grant access to third level spells, before taking the first level of eldritch knight. If eldritch knight is selected before having 6 levels of sorcerer the character will not be able to gain spell progression, and a rebuild or delevel will be necessary. When selecting the first level of the prestige class you will be prompted to select a feat with the correct spell progression, in this case spell progression sorcerer. If the feat does not appear go back and take more levels in the base class before attempting again. [In the case of bards the class level that grants access to third level spells is 7]
