Ready Spell (Metamagic)

You can cast a spell as a swift action.

Prerequisite(s): Quicken Spell, Knowledge (arcana) 15 ranks, Spellcraft 15 ranks

Benefit: You can prepare a spell with a range of Personal or Touch and a casting time of 1 standard action or less to be cast as a swift action. To do so, the spell must be targeted on yourself, and all variables and options for the spell must be chosen at the time of preparation.

A readied spell uses up a spell slot 2 levels higher than the spell's actual level. You may not have more than one readied spell in memory at a time, nor can this metamagic feat be applied to spontaneously-cast spells.
