All the following are class features of the disciple of Mammon prestige class.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Disciples of Mammon are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, but no type of armor or shields.
Lie (Su): A disciple of Mammon gains a +4 competence bonus on Bluff checks and spell resistance of 11 + disciple level against spells that reveal falsehood, such as zone of truth and discern lies, even when spell resistance is normally not allowed (such as with discern lies).
Cheat (Sp): Once per day per class level, a disciple of Mammon can produce an effect identical to that of a cheat spell cast by a 15th-level caster.
Thief (Ex): A 3rd-level disciple of Mammon gains a +4 competence bonus on Pick Pocket and Open Lock checks.
Steal (Sp): A 3rd-level disciple of Mammon can call a single unattended object weighing no more than 5 pounds to her as if using telekinesis. This functions as the spell cast by a 15th-level caster.
Divert Attack (Ex): Three times per day, a 4th-level disciple of Mammon can maneuver events so that an opponent's melee attack meant for her is actually directed at another character within the attacker's reach. The new target must also be a foe of the attacker. If there is no such foe within reach, the maneuver fails.
Summon Osyluth (Sp): A 5th-level disciple of Mammon can summon 1 osyluth once per day. This functions as a summon monster spell cast by a 15th-level caster.
Take Object (Ex): A 6th-level disciple of Mammon gains a +4 competence bonus on attempts to disarm a foe, and she draws no attacks of opportunity for making an attempt unarmed.
Enhance Value (Ex): By careful, slight modifications, a 7th-level disciple of Mammon can increase the value of a nonmagical item of value, such as a gem, an art object, or a piece of equipment. The disciple spends 1 hour performing these modifications and then makes an Appraise check, increasing the value of the object by 1% per point of the check result. A disciple of Mammon cannot enhance something with a readily obvious value, such as a coin, and she cannot enhance the same object twice.
Divert Spell (Ex): Once per day, an 8th-level disciple of Mammon can maneuver events so that an opponent's spell targeted on her is actually targeted at another instead. The new target must be within range and must also be a foe of the attacker. If there is no such foe within reach, the maneuver fails.
Nondetection (Sp): A 9th-level disciple of Mammon can constantly produce an effect identical to a nondetection spell cast by an 18th-level caster. This ability cannot be dispelled, but it can be suppressed.
Summon Gelugon (Sp): A 10th-level disciple of Mammon can summon 1 gelugon once per day. This functions as a summon monster spell cast by an 18th-level caster.
