Shifter / Master of Many Forms Conversion


I created a conversion for the Shifter/Master of Many Forms prestige class using the new content of the APG. And here i share with you, open for discussion.

the format didn't translate very well, so i restructured the table a bit.

Special: Wild Shape Class Feature.

lvl1 - Aspects 1/day (Falcon), Improved Wild Shape (Alter Self)
lvl2 - Aspects 2/day (Bear), Shifter's Speech

lvl8 - Aspects 5/day, Improved Wild Shape (Form of the Dragon II)
lvl9 - Improved Wild Shape (Giant Form II)
lvl10 - Aspects 6/day, Evershifting Form,
Improved Wild Shape (Form of the Dragon III)

Class Features
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Shifters gain no proficiency with any weapon or armor.

Aspects (Su): Once per day, a shifter can aquire aspects of an animal. At 1st level, this ability functions like the Aspect of the falcon spell, except the duration is 10 minutes per shifter level and the shifter can change back as a standard action. At 2nd level and every two levels thereafter, a shifter can use this ability an additional time per day for a total of six times per day at 10th level. At 2nd level, a shifter can choose this ability to work like Aspect of the Bear, at 3rd level like Aspect of the Stag, and at 4th level like Aspect of the Wolf instead. Each use of this ability counts agains the shifters total uses of aspects per day. A shifter can only use this ability while in her true form.

Improved Wild Shape (Su): A shifter's class levels stack with her druid levels for the purpose of determing her ability to wild shape into other forms and to wild shape at will. For example, a 5th level druid/3rd level shifter's wild shape functions as Beast Shape III, Elemental Body II or Plant Shape I. In addition, a shifter knows how to use her wild shape ability to assume a wider range of forms. At 1st level, she can use wild shape to take the form of a humanoid as per Alter Self.
At 5th level, her wild shape ability functions like Beast Shape IV, at 6th level like Form of the Dragon I, at 7th level like Giant Form I, at 8th level like Form of the Dragon II, at 9th level like Giant Form II, and at 10th level like Form of the Dragon III.
A Shifter also gains one additional use of her wild shape ability per class level gained.

Shifter's Speech (Ex): Starting at 2nd level, a shifter maintains her ability to speak normally (including verbal components of spells) regardless of the form she takes. Furthermore, she can communicate with other creatures of the same kind while in wild shape, as long as such creatures are normally capable of communicating with each other using natural methods.

Fast Wild Shape (Ex): Starting at 3rd level, a shifter can use her wild shape and her aspects ability to change her form or revert to her normal form as a move action.

Evershifting Form: A 10th level shifter has reached the pinnacle of her shapechanging abilities. She gains the shapechanger subtype and becomes immune to any transmutation effect unless she is willing to accept it.

i created a pdf file for download or print and uploaded it to some random fileshare host, but you can upload it to your space and post it here so it will last longer o_O
