Metamagic Conversion

You can apply metamagic feats to spell-like abilities.

Benefit: You gain a pool of progress points by which to fuel metamagic on your spell-like abilities. Each day, at dawn, your progress pool is emptied of unspent points, after which you gain a number of progress points equal to the number of metamagic feats you possess multiplied by 4. Whenever you cast a spell-like ability, you may choose to apply any number of metamagic feats you know to that SLA, but you must pay a number of progress points equal to the total spell level adjustment of those metamagic feats. The total number of progress points you may spend on one casting of a spell-like ability is limited by your caster level for that SLA and its effective spell level (see table for that limit). You cannot apply a particular metamagic feat or a particular combination of them on an SLA if the sum of those spell level adjustments is greater than the amount of progress points you can spend on that SLA.

For example, suppose a Succubus has Metamagic Conversion, several metamagic feats, and the detect good (1st level SLA), suggestion (3rd level SLA), and ethereal jaunt (7th level SLA) spell-like abilities, all at caster level 12. She cannot apply any metamagic feat with +1 adjustment or higher to ethereal jaunt because her caster level is not high enough to spend any progress points on 7th level SLAs. She can spend up to three progress points on a 3rd level SLA, so she can spend one point to enlarge suggestion, spend two points to heighten her suggestion by two levels, or spend three points to do both. However, she cannot spend four points to quicken her suggestion, nor can she spend four points to Enlarge and Chain it. Finally, she's allowed to spend up to 5 progress points on a 1st level SLA, so she can spend four points to quicken it or spend five to extend and twin it, but she cannot spend six progress points to persist it or to repeat and widen it.

When you take Metamagic Conversion, you may choose a single metamagic feat that you qualify for but don't possess. As long as you continue to qualify for the feat, you gain 4 additional progress points per day and you can apply that metamagic feat to spell-like abilities you know as if you have the feat. However, you do not gain any other benefits of the feat (such as being able to apply it to spells), and you don't have that feat for the purpose of satisfying prerequisites. If you would later gain access to the chosen metamagic feat, you may change the chosen feat to another metamagic feat that you qualify for but don't possess.
