Revelations: An oracle with the passion mystery can choose from any of the following revelations.
Beauty Smiles (Su): You channel the divine beauty of your goddess, moving the hearts of those who behold you. You receive a +1 bonus to the DC of all Charm spells (that is, spells with the Charm subtype). At 14th level, this bonus increases to +2. This ability stacks with the effect of the Spell Focus feat if applicable.
Graceful Avoidance (Su): Your graceful movement grants you the uncanny ability to step out of danger at the very last second. Add your Charisma modifier (instead of your Dexterity modifier) to your Armor Class and all Reflex saving throws.
Kiss of Life (Su): An Oracle with this mystery may kiss the lips of a recently slain creature, restoring it to life. This ability functions like the Breath of Life spell, except that it will function on creatures slain up to 1 round per 2 oracle levels ago and, in addition to 5d8 + caster level healing, this mystery also restores 1 point of ability damage and 1 negative level, allowing creatures slain by negative levels and having an ability reduced to 0 can also be brought back in this fashion. This ability can also be used to harm an undead creature (must succeed a grapple check, receive a will save, etc). Finally, you may discharge a use to make yourself immune to a succubus's Energy Drain for one round per oracle level. At 11th level you may use this ability once per day; you may use this ability one additional time per day per four levels (twice at 15, thrice at 19). You must be 11th level or higher before taking this revelation.
Love's Guidance (Su): You may add your Charisma modifier to your Wisdom modifier on all Wisdom-based skill checks. You may also add your Charisma modifier to your Wisdom when making a Will Save verses a spell or effect of the Charm sub-school.
Love Heals, Love Hurts (Su): You can channel positive or negative energy like a cleric, using the Variant Channeling energy of Beauty/Love/Lust. You can use your energy only on living beings (not undead), and can't gain the benefits of any channeling feats regarding undead. You can only make use of channeling feats that alter the heal/harm effects on living beings.
You use your oracle level as your effective cleric level when determining the effects of channeled energy. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
Mantle of Love (Su): When you are wearing no armor, you can instead envelop yourself in the divine love of your goddess (or god), who protects you from harm. You gain a +4 armor bonus (this does not stack with any armor bonus granted by any other means). At 7th level, and every four levels thereafter, this bonus increases by +2. At 13th level, this armor grants you DR 5/Piercing. You can use this mantle for 10 minutes per day per oracle level. The duration does not need to be consecutive; it can instead be spent in 10-minute increments.
Pain and Pleasure (Su): Once per day, with a touch attack, you deal 1d6 points of damage per 2 oracle levels you possess (max 10d6) as the spell Vampiric Touch. You are healed for the amount dealt. Furthermore, the target must make a Fort save 10 + 1/2 Oracle level + Cha mod vs Nausea for 1 round. At 11th level, the Nausea lasts for 2 rounds. At 7th level, you may use this ability twice per day; at 14th level you may use this ability 3 times per day.
Terrible Beauty (Su): Once per day, you channel the terrible, wonderful beauty upon those who look upon you. This affects a number of targets you choose equal to your Charisma modifier and within 30 feet. At 7th level, the targets must save or be Stunned (for 1d4 rounds); on a successful save the targets are merely shaken for 1d4 rounds. At 14th level, this ability affects targets within 60ft and the targets must save or be Stunned for 1d4 rounds and Blinded; on a successful save the targets are instead shaken for 1d4 rounds. At 20th level, this functions as a Phantasmal Killer spell; those that pass their saves are shaken (2d4 rounds) and those that fail the first save but pass the second save are also Stunned (1d4 rounds) and blinded. You must be 7th Level before taking this revelation.
Trust Me (Su): Once per day, you can reattempt a previously failed Bluff or Diplomacy check, even if a second attempt would normally not be allowed. If that check would normally receive a penalty for being tried again, you do not take that penalty.
Wrenching Heartache (Su): Once per day, as a standard action, you can inflict a terrible attack on the psyche of a creature within close range. The target creature suffers 1d4 damage per oracle level. The damage is untyped, and can be halved by a successful Will save, DC 10 +1/2 oracle level + Cha mod. Mindless creatures (creatures without an int score) are immune to this attack, but creatures immune to mind-affecting effects are not. Although the title implies it, the creature need not have a cardiovascular system to be affected, or even true emotions - this ability affects any creature with an intelligence score. You can use this ability one additional time per day at 5th level and every five levels beyond that.
Final Revelation: Upon reaching 20th level, your connection to divine love allows you to take 20 on any Charisma based skill check. You become immune to all spells of the Charm subschool, and receive a bonus on all saving throws equal to your charisma modifier. Finally, the oracle gains the Timeless Body ability.
Author's Note: With thanks to Bardess, The Doctor, Alexander Kilcoyne, Orannis, Jeremy Puckett, ThatEvilGuy, and everyone else on the Paizo forums that helped me polish thing thing up. We may not have agreed on everything, but in the end I think we made a good thing here.
