I already know the Hierophant presige classes, but which are the other options for a divine spellcaster?

My favourite PrCs for divine spellcasters are:
Sacred Fist
Hospitaler
Master of Shrouds
Mystic Theurge ;p

There are over 20 prestige classes with full divine spellcasting progression (+ about 10 with 1/2 progression) so the PrC choice for divine casters is rather wide.

Well, Hierophant is most similar to Archmage, and I'm pretty sure divine casters can become Shadow Adepts...not sure on Red Wizard.

I don't think any of them are like RWoT.

Runecaster has a bonus to spell DC depending on level - so this is one similarity to Red Wizard.

Good point.

Runecaster/Hierophant is quite an awesome build, especially with some of the domains that add spells like Disintegrate or Wail of the Banshee to your spell list or if you just start with an Archivist and have almost all spells available to you.

If only the epic bonus feat list of the Runecaster wasn't so bad. I always end up having to take a couple of epic toughness feats because I run out of epic spell focus feats (even non-bonus feats are somewhat broken for him, he can only choose Spell Focus: Cold or greater spell focus so I need to take all regular spell focus feats on my non-runecaster levels/before epic levels). I wish you had just added Great Intelligence and Great Wisdom to that list to make up for the dozen epic feats that he could choose but that aren't in the PRC.

I was checking epic progression for Runecaster (http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x=dnd/ei/20020712a) and he doesn't get any Great Wisdom feats.

OTOH Red wizards also don't get any great whatever feats in PnP, but they get Great Intelligence in PRC.

I geuss I could edit bonus feat list for runecaster ;)

Also Hierophants in D&D 3.5 work a bit different than in 3.0 - they get caster level bonus instead of spell DC bonus. I hope to convert the class to 3.5 rules someday ;p

That would be awesome. The epic bonus feat list is quite pathetic as it is now, especially for a class that gets so many.

Yeah, I read that before. It would make the class much worse but it doesn't make sense that the Archmage is that much less powerful than its divine counterpart.

A slightly out of data (3.1 Manual) database of prestige class casters is here: http://prc.athasreborn.com/index.php?topic=237.0

Also has racial bonuses, etc. Even Strat thought it was cool.

I can't find the Darkbolt spells and Call lightning, am I doing something wrong?
