Special Abilities
--------------------

Witchwolf special abilities: Wild Empathy, Magic Fang once per day

Shadow Archon Special Abilities:

Shadow Archon
Resistance - Aibek has a +15 Resistance to Cold and Electricity
Damage Resistance: 10/magic
Spell Resistance - Aibek gains a Spell Resistance to hostile magic based on level, currently at +11.
Shadow Blend - In anything other than bright light, Aibek can vanish into shadows, creating a 20% chance to miss.
See in Darkness: Aibek can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, including that created by deeper darkness magic.

Incorporeal Step (Su)
When a shadow archon moves, they gain the incorporeal subtype and quality, including a deflection bonus to AC equal to their Charisma bonus. They lose the incorporeal subtype and special ability when they stop moving.

Attacks: A shadow archon gains a melee touch attack that deals 1d6 points of damage (Fort negates). The save DC is equal to 10 + 1/2 the shadow lord's Hit Dice + the shadow lord's Charisma modifier. On a critical hit, the shadow archon's touch attack also deals 1 point of Constitution damage (also negated by the saving throw).

Special Attacks: A shadow archon gains the following special attacks. Their saving throw DCs for these attacks are equal to 10 + 1/2 the shadow archon's Hit Dice + the shadow archon's Charisma modifier, unless otherwise noted.

Cloying Gloom Blast (Su)
Three times per day, the shadow archon can unleash a 30-foot cone of cloying gloom. On a failed Fortitude saving throw, creatures in the cone are affected by a slow spell (caster level equal to the shadow lord's Hit Dice) and are blinded for the duration of the slow effect.

Spell-Like Abilities: A shadow archon gains the following spell-like abilities, with a caster level equal to its Hit Dice:

At will—ray of sickening;

3/day—shadow conjuration, shadow step;

1/day—greater shadow conjuration (if the shadow lord has 11 or more Hit Dice), shadow walk.

A creature created with shadow conjuration or greater shadow conjuration that would normally have a celestial or fiendish template (such as a bear) instead gains the shadow creature template.

Special Qualities: A shadow archon gains the following special quality.

Planar Thinning (Su)

Once per day as a full-round action, a shadow archon can thin the barriers between the Material Plane and Shadow Plane, making it considerably easier for creatures to cross between the two. This functions like the planar travel aspect of the gate spell (caster level equal to the shadow lord's Hit Dice). This planar thinning is immediately dispelled if in an area of normal or bright light.

Shadow Assassin Special Abilities:

Shadow Assassin
Deadly Focus - Gain a bonus equal to Wisdom (maxed at Shadow Assassin level) to hit and damage against one target for 24 hours. Can be replenished with 30 minutes of meditation.

Greater Deadly Focus
This acts as a deadly focus, except the shadow assassin adds double his class level to all damage dealt to the target with light weapons, bolas, and shuriken. This bonus damage replaces the Wisdom modifier bonus to damage granted by a deadly focus. Any ability that works with deadly focus also works with greater deadly focus, and choosing a target of a greater deadly focus ends any bonuses against a previous target of deadly focus (and vice-versa). Currently available once per day.

Shadowmeld - Aibek can use these abilities in dim or darker light conditions;
- Stealth Bonus - Gains a bonus equal to level on Stealth. Does not aid Invisiblity or other such abilities, but works against Dark Vision, scent, etc.
Skills Bonus - 1/2 class level to /ed skills in dim or darker light conditions
Shadow Style - A series of special abilities Shadow Assassins may gain access to.
- Shadowblade - As a swift action, the Shadow Assassin can create or coat a light weapon in Shadows, adding +1 to hit and damage. Increases by +1 for every three levels of Shadow Assassin taken. If this shadow style is selected a second time, the weapon counts as a force effect.

Shadow Talents - Another set of Shadow Assassin abilities.
- Ledge Walker - Allows Aibek to move along narrow ledges at full speed with no penalty.
- Daggermaster +1

Mythic Master of Shapes:

Adaptation: Altered State (Su): As a swift action, you may spend a use of mythic power to select a new form for an ongoing metamorphosis, shapechange or polymorph effect. The change does not alter the duration or allow any choices outside the normal options for the ability.

Abilities: Savage Shift (Ex): Your natural weapons when assuming a form with a spell, power, or supernatural ability are treated as one size category larger than normal.

Feats: Weapons Finesse Mythic: When using Weapon Finesse, you may also use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on your damage rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty doesn't apply to either the attack rolls or the damage rolls

Mythic;
Hard to Kill (Ex)
Whenever you're below 0 hit points, you automatically stabilize without needing to attempt a Constitution check. If you have an ability that allows you to act while below 0 hit points, you still lose hit points for taking actions, as specified by that ability. Bleed damage still causes you to lose hit points when below 0 hit points. In addition, you don't die until your total number of negative hit points is equal to or greater than double your Constitution score.

Mythic Power (Su)
Mythic characters can draw upon a wellspring of power to accomplish amazing deeds and cheat fate. This power is used by a number of different abilities. Each day, you can expend an amount of mythic power equal to 3 plus double your mythic tier (5/day at 1st tier, 7/day at 2nd, etc.). This amount is your maximum amount of mythic power. If an ability allows you to regain uses of your mythic power, you can never have more than this amount.

Surge (Su)
You can call upon your mythic power to overcome difficult challenges. You can expend one use of mythic power to increase any d20 roll you just made by rolling 1d6 and adding it to the result. Using this ability is an immediate action taken after the result of the original roll is revealed. This can change the outcome of the roll. The bonus die gained by using this ability increases to 1d8 at 4th tier, 1d10 at 7th tier, and 1d12 at 10th tier.

Amazing Initiative (Ex)
At 2nd tier, you gain a bonus on initiative checks equal to your mythic tier. In addition, as a free action on your turn, you can expend one use of mythic power to take an additional standard action during that turn. This additional standard action can't be used to cast a spell. You can't gain an extra action in this way more than once per round.

This Aibek's background Part 1:

This Aibek of Meang Kosali and Vakhtang Aibek of the Vakana clan has heard stories of Zhen Halfblood from infancy. As Kosali tells it, they travelled for many years and it was Zhen and his group that put her on the path to who she is today.

As a young Tian witch, Kosali sought out and mastered transforming and living as everything from a spider to a dragon believing that through this changing and living was the path of the highest level of exploration and enlightenment of herself and the world. She had barely mastered the spider when then Lady Kosali was introduced and asked to join Zhen Halfblood and his group on a mission they had begun months before. It was through joining that group that Kosali met werewolves for the first time, would learn from them, fight others, deal with being bitten and with being cured of lycanthropy, and forever changed. Through the years she mastered hundreds of shapes and changed more through each and still felt the same pull. Their path would take them to meeting the Vakana clan - and Vakhtang Aibek. Kosali chose to stay, the pull of a settled and more deeply transformed life that she knew she would not have with Zhen. Zhen and the others would visit the Vakana lands as welcomed friends for a few years, meeting Kosali and Vakhtang's first child Nurasyl, but their lives soon were more connected by their letters and parcels than anything else and Zhen never personally met the other three children - Aiday, Eteri, and Arman. Kosali became a respected elder in the Vakana clan even if she never became a werewolf herself (no one knew the risks of trying on someone who had been unlycanthroped before) and her werewolf-kin children are finding their own place in the world...

Kosali in her age hasn't been able to leave the Vakana land in years and it was unsurprising that kind Zhen wouldn't push her to do even now. If Kosali knew she's likely risk transforming into her fastest dragon self and going, likely ending up comatose before arrival and no one yet had the knowledge to take her at the speed Kosali would want. The letter was sent for Nurasyl Aibek in hopes they could soften the news for their mother but a younger Aibek got it first.

Curiousity on the half-orc behind the legend, curious why Nurasyl alone would be given such an honour - it is not as if the toddler Nurasyl that Zhen had known could deserve it, a drive to push bloodlines and more to their limits, and a hope to find worth in the eyes of a legend pushed the younger Aibek down this path without telling anyone else -- one can only hope this road that begins with deceit by omission will not turn against the traveller - or the werewolf father, the witch mother who could be anything from a spider to a dragon, three powerful witchwolf siblings, a clan of werewolves, or legends coming to life. Having spent more time than most away from the clan' forests, Aibek hopes this will give them more time before any family considers what they have done...

This Aibek must find worth, connection and purpose on this Plane or they may risk far too much for a chance to get back to a place and people who saw them as more than an Aibek...

Underground Vault

Second Basement: Still sealed by unknown means.

Note - some of the ruined areas are beginning to be repaired by the Nexus and others. A new check will need to be done at some point to update and expand these notes as well as attempt to address concerns regarding the damaged crystals, sealed basement, the druid tower, and the possibility of repairing the damaged and/or building more Tower guards. Also, reports of quarters for councillors appear in some local stories may interest the others.

Aibek's current mental to-do list:
-- Investigate the lights...and the laughing...and this weird summoning

-- Continue improving map and notes and search for possible local thinnings.

-- Try to arrange regular meetings/discussion time with different groups and people: local community, guards, merchants [Kara & Dosa, Pelar, Quera, Gron & Helt], newer people, the Nexus, the others, Azerna, Arman...

---- Arrange having Ayreth meet Quera. Maybe take everyone shopping there.

-- Concerns: strange new lights, reports of new village suddenly appearing, the damaged crystals in th Towers, sealed southeast "druid's" tower, sealed second basement, gnolls, finding ways to protect merchants and other locals from raiders and issues with an increase in people and reputation, flow of magic in Khalharum, Xandrius's prophecy, boundmates, feelings...

-- City improvements: community hall, housing upgrades, plants and trees [best trees? gather seeds and cuttings], food security [granary, greenhouses, farms], defences and fortifications [best place to begin? gatehouses? walls?], expanding industries and trade, repairs [arsenal, water wheel, Towers, general].

-- Other City investigations of interest: The lights, The new village, Check on glass dragons, fountains, exploring other islands, visit That Which Walks Beside the Zelekhut Inevitables Construct at Aroden's temple to discuss seeds, thinning, Milani, a new check of the Towers.

-- Work in library in the Central Tower: understand the city and area better, how to repair or replace other crystals, possible thinning locations, find safe way to store ancient coins and scholar's ring, a better solution to Khaul, and other issues. Consider possible work and tasks there including finding new books.

-- Instruct the women's group in defence skills, consider further fighting skill training with crossbow, cestus, shadowcloy...

-- Locate people who wrote letter who knew about being shadow bonded.

-- Locate Plane of Shadow items like a Shadow Spike and materials to repair/upgrade shadow champion armour: enchanted umbrite, darkleaf as well as dreamstone weapons.

-- Find a permanent solution to Khaul and their "clients"/"employers" who were the 'master' of the Garugin Devil. Possible connections to Asmodeus and/or Baalzebul.

-- Figure out what in the shadows happened to self and shadows and what changes the shadow collector has caused them and self.

-- Soothe and sort shadows, master making a shadow conjured tetsubo.

-- Find out about the invisible Kira, and what paperwork Zhen Halfblood's estate would like and how often.

-- smudged swirling ideas
