The Penumbra Bloodline feat (Dragon #325) adds a spell to your spells known for each spell level. For some of the spells, the spells are added at the spell level they are listed as in the PHB. However, a few are added at other spell levels. These spells are:
- Shadow Walk (Sor/Wiz 7, gained at 6);
- Greater Shadow Evocation (Sor/Wiz 6, gained at 8);
- Etherealness (Clr 6, Sor/Wiz 8, gained at 9)
Other Bloodline feats have similar discrepancies between the spell levels in the PHB and the listed levels.
As what spell level should I treat these spells for spending spell slots, DCs etc.? Should they be treated as the spell levels listed in the PHB, or does the Bloodline feat overrule these levels?
