If you are OK with non Paizo material, might I suggest checking out the Skin Changer in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press
The Skin Changer is an alternate of the popular Spell-less Ranger class, so it is indeed a full BAB, non-spellcasting shapechanger :)
From Endzeitgeist' review:
From a Drivethru RPG review
I was shocked more at your "It probably won't even dent the box office." comment. Most knowledgeable people I've heard feel the Jungle Book will make a massive amount of money and will most likely even get nominated for some big awards.
I can absolutely help!
Check out the Theurge class in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press!!! It's *exactly* what your are describing!
A few quotes from the various reviews:
"The Theurge is, in my opinion, a long needed addition to the game. The use of a "Prayer Book" elegantly handles the balance issues of giving a single class access to effectively every spell in the game."
"The Theurge! Oh my! Basically, this is a normal class version of the Mystic Theurge. You get both divine and arcane spellcasting progression, with both sides having halved spells per day. Additionally, each set of spellcasting uses a different ability score for save DCs. This Theurge has a lot of versatility, and can bring a lot of tools to any party."
"The Theurge is an amazing spellcaster that allows you to cast divine and arcane spells right from the get go, without having to make that climb into Paizo’s Mystic Theurge prestige class. Well fear no longer, because the Theurge can do that from level 1 and can even cast two spells at the same time given that one is arcane and one is divine. Their only downfall is how many spells per day they can actually pull off but then again, if they could cast all day like other classes, then it would be broken and probably banned from tables so I find it very balanced in that fact."
Crystal, amethyst, sapphire, emerald, topaz, and the Ruby Dragon Sardior himself - gem dragons have been part of D&D since the earliest days.
Ed Greenwood says: "There's something cool about dragons. A special sort of cool. Great power, hubris, magic, wits to match the adventurers' own. Any Dungeon Master can always use a new dragon, either a detailed individual or entirely new sorts of dragons. In Gem Dragons of Faerûn, you get both.
"Gem dragons have been around for a long time, but this is the best and most detailed (and, of course, 5th Edition) treatment of them I've ever laid eager DM's eyes on, and I met an old friend in its pages. Lovingly worked into the fabric of the Realms and fully realized for any D&D campaign, these wyrms are ready to leap off the pages and into your campaign. A winner! Two talons way, way up!"
Check it out today!
Looks great - but I saw the phrase 'Anthology' in the title. Does that means this is going to be a bunch of short films?
No, it's a single, full-lentgh film.
In addition the the main trilogy they are doing (Episodes 7, 8, and 9) there will also be a number of stand-alone movies to tell various, individual Star Wars stories. This is the first such movie. The next will be a Han Solo origin movie
In case anyone missed it ...
From the review:
As I said in the other thread, a lot of people put in a LOT of time, energy, blood, and sweat into this book, so reviews like this make it all worth while!
"This may well be the best sourcebook Kobold Press has released ... perhaps this is even one of the best sourcebooks I've ever read. Southlands is excellence - if you even remotely are interested in the subject matter, do yourself a favor and get this glorious tome - it contains enough ideas and adventure for a lifetime and I am not engaging in hyperbole here. My final verdict will clock in at 5 stars + seal of approval and I'll also nominate this as a candidate for my Top Ten of 2015.
Thanks so much for the wonderful review! A lot of people put in a LOT of time, energy, blood, and sweat into this book, so reviews like this make it all worth while!
Just wanted to say that some of these types of classes are in the New Paths Compendium from Kobold Press. If you allow any Third Party material in your games, the New Paths Compendium is worth checking out!
14 5-star ratings! :)
Shapeshifter- Class that is a non-spellcaster that focuses on changing into anyone and anything. Maybe gains additional bonuses while using it's shape shifting.
Check out the Skin-Changer, a non-spellcasting class with a host of shapeshifting abilities. When in animal form, the class gets a number of enhanced combat abilities too!
I would love a 9th level cha based spontaneous caster with the druid spell list. Maybe some kind of totem animal/spirit for it's bloodline/mystery/domain type focus. I really wish this what the shaman was like.
The Shaman is EXACTLY that type of class (not the Paizo shaman, the Shaman that is in the New Paths Compendium - which, incedentaly. came out well before the Paizo version :)
Catching up on e-mail and saw I'd missed my Paizo e-mail!
The Trickster is on the Paizo's Top Ten from Other Companies List again! It did drop the number one spot to the number 5 spot (wow, I sound like Kasey Kasem :) but that's totally OK! 4 weeks as the top download is awesome and we're thrilled to still be in the Top Ten again this week :)
I have to say, some folks are being pretty dismisive of Gygax. Let's never forget that he, more than any one person *period* is the reason we have the game(s) we all play and love today. Although there certainly were other people that helped Gary shape D&D, he was the main, driving creative force that made the game, not to mention the company he founded to publish the game, the success it was and continues to be through its' many successors.
I just think Gygax deserves a bit more respect that he's getting in this thread
Midgard fans should be on the look out ... there just might be a pretty major new hardcover coming ... :)
Extremely good, spoiler free review - I respect these guys a great deal and trust their opinions quite a bit
That's right! It's Kobold Press's TENTH Anniversary!!!!
This month we're celebrating 10 years of small-but-fierce publishing! Yes, we can hardly believe it either, but somehow we've dodged the scythes and poison dart traps of outrageous fortune for a full decade.
The Kobold Press party is in full swing, featuring:
... and plenty more!
Time to party down in kobold town--and figure out how we'll survive the next 10!
Star Wars the Force Awakens was an excellent film.
Using Kobold Press's spontaneous casting, Shaman class sounds like a great idea to me! :)
The Trickster is #1 on Paizo's list of Top Downloads From Other Companies for the THIRD week in in a row!!
That is so awesome! Thanks to everyone who had picked this up so far!!!
And, if you've been on the fence about getting it so far, maybe now is time to take the plunge and give it a chance:)

Of cool! That's a book a need! Some awesome stuff coming from the Swan!
Man, Creighton - if I can somehow find a way to free up some time, I'd love to work together on something again! :)

I am a Full-Blown, Grade A, No Apologies, Dice Geek!!! so I love talking about dice :)
My first set of dice was indeed the old, color in the numbers variety. They came in my then brand new D&D game box back around 1979 (actually, TSR was experiencing a dice shortage due to the game's massive but unexpected popularity, so my box came with sheets of numbered cutout cardstock chits to use instead of dice, along with a coupon for ordering the dice directly from TSR once they got them back in stock)
I've been noodling away at the archetype I mentioned earlier (in my copious amounts of free time:) and an interesting thing seems to have developed, without being intended ...
In addition to being (in my oh so humble opinion) a pretty darn interesting archetype, it also appears to pretty nicely address the issue that a small but vocal number of folks have expressed, i.e. feeling the class might be a bit too powerful due to having access to the full wizard/sorcerer spell list (albeit up to 6th level spells, of course).
Mind you, I think the power-level and balance of the Trickster is just about right as is, BUT, for those that feel otherwise, I think this archetype might just offer a great alternative.
Basically, I guess what I'm saying is I'm really happy with how this bad boy is shaping up :)
Let me second that - thanks so much for the review! Agreed that this was on the shorted side, but I think we packed a lot of goodness into those pages :)
Speaking of additional material, I'm currently working on pretty cool Trickster archetype that opens up some interesting new play options ...
Raven Black - looking forward to hearing what you think once you do!
