Alpha Orcs Racial History

Though their name suggests they are merely a superior breed of orc, they are in fact partly human. Many years prior to the present (though the actual meaning of time passage when comparing differing dimensions can be disputed...) the military of a nation in a highly advanced technological world (one might say it was a world with super villains and heroes) with little to no (common) knowledge of magic came upon a dimensional rift. Orcs poured through it. Of course, the orcs were no match for the technology of the nation and were quickly dispatched with many prisoners taken for interrogation (i.e. experimentation).

This "experimentation" resulted in an attempt to create super-soldiers that could be used for many purposes ranging from combat to crowd control. Using the Orc DNA to improve certain aspects, they were genetically designed to be superior in many categories but easily controlled. But, there were dissenters within the program and those who wished to destroy it from without. Many of the specimens grown in uterine vats had their chosen DNA altered to make them far more independent thinking, and some even rebellious. With the aid of an outside agency (some individuals referred to as super heroes), these free thinking Alpha Orcs made an escape and took with them many stored embryos (with the free thinking genes) and fled through an unstable dimensional door.

This trip was fraught with danger and much of the technology brought with them was lost. They held off many who thought to take control of them but finally claimed a reasonable amount of security. However, after much internal strife, they made a decision and abducted many women from some local human and orc tribes so that they could implant the remaining embryos brought from the old world and assure the survival of their race. The result brought forth an unforeseen outcome. None of the Alpha Orcs had been previously raised by mothers who had loved them. They were born out of vats.

This led to an awakening in the Alpha Orcs who had been focused solely on military survival. In the generations since, the Alpha Orcs have remained largely xenophobic but have begun to expand their area of control and have sought to trade with others in order to learn that which they have forgotten and raise the bar to new heights.

Alpha Orcs (racial description)

Alpha Orcs are a young, proud race resulting from genetic tampering with the intent of making super soldiers on some far off technologically advanced world. They have worked hard to ensure their survival and have only recently begun to reach out to other races and societies. Their current home world has a small population and a number of dimensional doors. They keep many secrets of their own which they have refused to divulge even for the much sought after knowledge of magic.

Physical Description: Alpha Orcs have an appearance that closely resembles their lesser Orc brethren but they are not quite as tall and not nearly so thick. Most are long limbed, almost to the point of being very unusual. They have dark, thick hair and eyes whose color covers a wide range. They often cut their hair short, even the females, and typically carry themselves in a distinctly disciplined and military manner.

Society: The Alpha Orc society is quite xenophobic as a result of having fought so long for their survival. They are communal but also have close family ties. Although they demand adherence to a strict set of rules, they do not tolerate slavery or magical compulsion. Those who do not follow the rules of the homeland are excommunicated. But, in the homeland, they have quite a bit of technology that they use with the most notable of these being firearms, even advanced ones. Resources have limited their production and growth as a society.

Relations: Alpha Orcs have little love for their Orc cousins and less still for their Human cousins, although their skill at fighting their human cousins will allow them the comfort of trading with them. They feel both empathy and pity for the Half-Orcs they have met and there are numerous ostracized Alpha Orcs who have sought to ally themselves with such half breeds. They resent the hatred they receive from Elves and Dwarves and have no trouble in returning it to these groups.

Alignment and Religion: Alpha Orcs have been forced to live a regimented life in order survive but they chafe under it as they have many progenitors that were genetically engineered to be free thinkers. But, they still have a high genetic disposition toward cooperation as they were engineered to work in combat groups. But, having escaped with little culture (and none of it their own) they have very little cultural identity regarding divinity and the afterlife. Many who leave the homeland flock to various congregations.

Adventurers: There has been a recent surge in Alpha Orc adventurers as they have sought to investigate the world and dimensions around them. This includes spies and scouts as well as those who have been excommunicated. They are numerous gunslingers and monks and rangers among them. Practitioners of magic (both arcane and divine) as well as rogues are virtually nonexistent in those of the first generation to leave the homeland.

Male Names: David, Evan, Richard, Thomas etc.
Female Names: Beverly, Jennifer, Sarah, Vanessa

Alpha Orc Racial Traits

+2 to any two abilities: Alpha Orcs were engineered to be superior

Medium: Alpha Orcs are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.

Swift-footed: Alpha Orcs were engineered to move quickly about the battlefield. They have a base movement of 40'.

Darkvision: Alpha Orcs were given the genetics of darkvision so as to be elite units on a modern battlefield.

Scent: The Orcish olfactory senses were heightened to keep these battlefield predators from being ambushed.

Ferocity: Alpha Orcs were engineered to fight to the death. An Alpha Orc remains conscious and can continue fighting even if its hit point total is below 0. The Alpha Orc is still staggered and loses 1 hit point each round. It still dies when its hit point total reaches a negative amount equal to its Constitution score.

Defensive Training: Alpha Orcs were designed to react to human movements and gain a +4 dodge bonus when facing humans

Combat Training: Alpha Orcs were genetically engineered to react to the brutal modern battlefield with firearms and receive a +2 dodge bonus to AC.

Weapon Familiarity: Being genetically engineered for riot control and fighting on the modern battlefield, Alpha Orcs are proficient with Man Catchers and Firearms. They pick up the items and instinctively recognize their use.

Genetic Suites: Alpha Orcs were designed to fill various roles and there appear to be a number of genetic suits they have received. Choose one of the following: Master Tinker (+1 on disable device and knowledge: engineering, proficient with any weapon personally created), Natural Armor (+1 bonus to natural armor), or Silent Hunter (reduce the penalty for stealth checks when moving by -5 and can make stealth checks at -20 while running).

Languages: Alpha (The First, their language). Alpha Orcs with high intelligence scores can learn from the following: Common, Orc, Goblin, and Draconic.

So basically these are shark men with large jaws and a ferocious demeanor. They don't deal well with people, and are on the big and bulky end of medium size. I tried to make them good for things other than just fighter types, which I think stalker and a wisdom bonus help in that regard. I wanted to make it aligned with the plane of water but as it isn't an elemental I had to settle for a vulnerability to electricity.

Succubus were smart and their off-spring would need that as well so +2INT,
I looked at the stats (3.5 version) for succubus and saw DEX was the highest and could not have the race as a pure mental race so +2 DEX was given.
Racial Abilities:
They need their resistances of their fiendish parents (elements, poison and enchantments)
Succubi are known for their changing into the most desirable form, so I needed a shape change option, but limited as it losses potentacy.
Succubi were good with words and langauges so Gift of tongues. Added Natural armour for a defensive boost.

rebalanced nekogami:

Nekogami:

Ability Modifiers; +2 Strength, +2 Dexterity; Nekogami are strong and agile but show not too many differences from their human cousins

Type. Outsider (Native); Nekogami are the mostly human blooded descendants of a minor goddess.

Medium: Medium races have no bonuses or penalties due to their size. A Medium creature has a space
of 5 feet by 5 feet and a reach of 5 feet

Darkvision 60 ft: Members of this race can see in the dark up to 60 feet. This works like the dwarf ability of the same name

Fast Speed; a Nekogami has a base land speed of 40 feet.

Divine Will, a Nekogami, due to their Divine Nature Receives a +2 Racial bonus on will saving throws

Human Adaptability; a Nekogami receives a bonus feat at first level for which she meet the prerequisites. In addition, she counts as a human of her equivalent ethnicity for the purpose of racially specific prerequisites. Such as feats or traits that require her to be human

Languages: Common, one Regional Human language appropriate to their homeland, Bonus Languages. Aklo, Sylvan, Giant, Draconic, Elven, Tengu Any other regionally appropriate human language.

Fluff:

Nekogami are the Biologically diluted mortal Descendants of Lady Shuriken of House Nekogami of the Minkai Empire. They are Typically Slight of frame with dark hair, yellow tinted skin, toned wiry muscles, and hazel hued eyes. They typically take the life of a monk, ninja, or fighter. Most Nekogami tend to be Vigorous with the ferocity of a Tiger in combat. They usually tend to live in human dominated sections within the Minkai empire and a few exist elsewhere. Female Nekogami are typically smaller in bust and rump as an adaption to increase their mobility. And due to the fact that male Nekogami have a hard time growing facial hair. Some of them take pride in what facial hair they have, protecting it with the vigor a lion has for his main. They are strong and agile, unlike what their wiry frames would suggest. They appear almost human, with the exception of their major feline mental tendencies. It’s the women that do the hunting and act as the dominant sex. And the men tend to protect the children and take over when their partner is incapacitated. They think like a predator, seeing their victims as prey to assist in sustaining them, are as Vigorous as a tiger, and tend to have conservative tendencies derived from a combination of their heightened metabolism, practical lifestyle, desire to avoid unwanted attention, and preference for comfortable, loose fitting garb. A simple robe usually suffices for either gender.

New Minor Deity. Nekogami Shuriken L/N

Nekogami Shuriken is the Child Goddess of Tigers, the Hunt, and pleasure Derived through Trial. She is of Lawful Neutral Alignment and is a Subcontractor of the gods, Irori, Erastil, and Zon Kuthon. In life, she was a human monk whom had reached godhood in her youth and is a minor Goddess. The gods refer to her as a “Child” in comparison to themselves. Because of both her apparent comparative youth, and her lack of comparative maturity. She started Adventuring at the Age of 14 and spent 2 years climbing the Ladder of power until she passed the test of the starstone at the age of 17.

Shuriken Nekogami’s Favored Weapon is the unarmed strike and Her domains are Darkness, Animal (Animal Companion must be a Tiger), Healing, and Liberation.

Here's my humble submission:

Demi-Goblins

The result of a Mad Wizard's experimentation into making a
more controllable breed of Goblinoid, the Demi-Goblins are
a hybrid of human blood mixed with various Goblinoid sub-races.

The results were mixed; While the Demi-Goblins have inherited
the stature of their human ancestors, they also lack the innate
agility of their Goblinoid kin. They nevertheless excel in
stealth tactics, and are often trained to fight as such.

26-10=16, 16/2=8 (half-succubus level).
Succubus were smart and their off-spring would need that as well so +2INT +2WIS,
Given it's Impressive mental total, I balanced it with some physical improvements
Racial Abilities:
They need their resistances of their fiendish parents (elements, poison and enchantments)
Succubi are known for their changing into the most desirable form, so I needed a shape change option, but limited as it losses potentacy.

Rhine (sentient anthropomorphic rhinoceros)

So apparently I used something other than the playtest to build this, and now the board won't allow me to edit my post. Here is my update:

    • Type: Humanoid (0 RP)
    • Size: Medium (0 RP)
    • Base Speed: 20 ft. (-1 RP)
    ○ speed is never modified by armor or encumbrance.
    • Ability Modifiers: +2 STR, +2 WIS, -2 CHA (0 RP)
    • Language: Common. Rhine can learn up to seven languages (except for Druidic or other secret languages). Rhine with high Intelligence scores can choose any of those languages as their bonus languages. (1 RP)
    • Natural Armor: +1 Natural Armor bonus to AC (2 RP)
    • Imp. Natural Armor: +1 Natural Armor bonus to AC (1 RP)
    • Imp. Natural Armor: +1 Natural Armor bonus to AC (1 RP)

    • Animal*: Rhine are humanoids of the Animal subtype. An Animal is affected by mind-affecting spells and abilities as if it was a creature of the Animal type in addition to the humanoid type. If the ability does not affect creatures with an Intelligence higher than 2, the Animal gains a +2 bonus on their saving throw, but is otherwise affected by the ability as if their Intelligence were 1 or 2. (-1 RP)
    • Momentum**: Your base movement when making a Charge combat maneuver increases by 10 feet. Also, a Rhine does not suffer any penalties to their Armor Class when attacking on a Charge. If any line from your starting space to the ending space passes through a square that slows movement, or contains a creature (even an ally), you can still charge. Any space that blocks movement still prevents a you from charging, as normal. (4 RP)

*Animal is a situational penalty that I made up off the top of my head that is meant to portray the inherent animalistic nature of the Rhine. Just guesstimating the -1RP cost.
**Momentum is an advanced monstrous ability that I made up off the top of my head that is intended to highlight the instinctual charging capabilities of the Rhinoceros which the Rhine have evolved from. Just guesstimating the 4RP cost.

Total RP Cost: 10.
(even if my guesstimates are slightly off, it should be near a balanced player race)

Grand Lodge

I've been playing around with the rules for the past couple days trying to come up with races for a hypothetical campaign that doesn't quite use the normal fantasy races. I wouldn't mind some feedback or ideas fluff. I'll start with the Kyryk, a race that started as "Take all the stuff you know about elves, but now they're anthropomorphic giant spiders."

Kyryk
Monstrous Humanoid (2 RP): Kyryk only have a humanoid structure superficially, but have far too many eyes and legs. They have darkvision out to 60 feet
+2 dex, +2 int, -2 con: Kyryk are nimble and intelligent hunters, but their spindly bodies are fragile
Small (0 RP): Kyryk are Small creatures and gain a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty to their Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks.
Spider’s Sense (1 RP): A Kyryk’s connection to the weave makes it sensitive to the changes around, and sometimes warns it of danger. Once per day, when you make a Reflex saving throw, you can roll the saving throw twice and take the better result. You must decide to use this ability before the saving throw is attempted.
Natural Armor (2 RP): Kyryk’s hard carapace give them a +1 natural armor bonus.
Natural Weavers (2 RP): Kyryk gain a +2 bonus on caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance. In addition, they also receive a +2 racial bonus on Spellcraft checks made to identify the properties of magic items.
Web Weaving (1 RP): Kyryk naturally produce strong webbing which they use in artwork and construction. Though a single one cannot produce much in a day, a community working together can bend trees into great towering spires. A Kyryk can use Mending as a spell like ability 1/day. The caster level of the spell is equal to the character level of the user
Climb (1 RP): Kyryk have a climb speed of 20 ft., and gain the +8 racial bonus on Climb checks that a climb speed normally grants
Stalker (1 RP): Kyryk are natural born hunters. Perception and stealth are always class skills for them

Total 10 RP
I changed some of the ability names for flavor. Apologies if they don't make sense.


Been working on this all day, a succubus heritage tiefling with a little Golarion flavour.

Noctuling
Deep in the Abyss, the first succubus launches myriad plots to corrupt the mortals of Golarion. One such plot involves pairing her favoured daughters to interbreed with the mortal sorcerers of her cult, hopefully resulting in more powerful cultists initiated at a young age that cannot be banished from the material plane. Continuing this project for centuries, the resulting subrace was dubbed ‘Noctulings’ in honour of their patron.

Magnetic, sensual and impulsive by nature, Noctulings that still work for the cult insinuate themselves into all levels of society, making themselves invaluable to their marks up until Our Lady in Shadow requires their death. Such creatures cannot be totally controlled, however, resulting in a significant number of rogues who want nothing to do with Nocticula or her vile cult. Despite this, their Lady still views each of them as her personal tools to be used as she desires.

Noctuling Characters
Noctulings are defined by their class levels – they do not possess racial HD. They have the following racial traits.
+4 Charisma, -2 Strength, -2 Wisdom: Noctulings are compelling beings, though slight of build and passionate to the point of foolhardiness.
Darkvision: Noctulings see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Skilled: Noctulings have a +2 racial bonus on Bluff and Perception checks.
Spell-like Ability: Noctulings can use charm person once per day as a spell-like ability. The caster level for this ability equals the noctuling’s class level.
Fiendish Resistance: Noctulings have cold resistance 5, electricity resistance 5 and fire resistance 5.
Fiendish Sorcery: Noctuling sorcerers with the Abyssal or Arcane bloodline treat their caster level as 1 higher when casting bonus spells and bloodline powers. This does not give them early access to level-based powers.
Gifted Linguist: Noctulings gain a +4 racial bonus on Linguistics checks and they learn one additional language every time they put a rank in the Linguistics skill.
Sociable: When Noctulings attempt to change a creature’s attitude with a Diplomacy check and fail by 5 or more, they can try to influence the creature a second time even if 24 hours have not passed.
Languages: Noctulings begin play speaking Common and Abyssal. Noctulings with high Intelligence scores can choose any language other than secret languages such as Druidic.

RPG Superstar 2012 Top 32

AMAZON

Amazons are the daughters of the Fire Goddess. They are fiery women trained in the ways of war.

Type: Humanoid (human)
Size: Medium
Base Speed: Normal
Ability Score Modifiers: +2 Constitution, +2 Charisma, -2 Wisdom. Amazons are tough and seductive, but impetuous.

Racial Abilities:

Daughter of the Sacred Flame: Amazons are treated as 1 level higher when casting spells with the fire descriptor, using granted powers of the Fire domain, using bloodline powers of the fire elemental and brass, gold, or red draconic bloodlines, using the revelations of the oracle’s flame mystery, and when determining the damage of alchemist bombs that deal fire damage. This ability does not give amazons early access to level-based powers; it only affects powers that they could already use without this ability. If an amazon has a Charisma of 11 or higher, she also gains the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—dancing lights, flare, prestidigitation, produce flame. The caster level for these spell-like abilities is equal to the amazon’s character level.

Fiery Spirit: Amazons gain a +2 racial bonus on Will saving throws to resist spells and spell-like abilities of the enchantment (charm) and enchantment (compulsion) subschools. In addition, if an amazon fails such a save, she receives another save 1 round later to prematurely end the effect (assuming the spell or spell-like ability has a duration greater than 1 round). This second save is made at the same DC as the first. If the amazon has a similar ability from another source (such as a rogue’s slippery mind class feature), she can only use one of these abilities per round, but can try one on the second round if the first reroll ability fails

Greater Defensive Training: Amazons gain a +2 dodge bonus to Armor Class.

Seductive: When amazons attempts to change a creature’s attitude with a Diplomacy check and fail by 5 or more, they can try to influence the creature a second time even if 24 hours have not passed.

Sister in Arms: Amazons are used to living and fighting communally with other members of their race. Up to two amazons can share the same square at the same time. If two amazons that are occupying the same square attack the same foe, they are considered to be flanking that foe as if they were in two opposite squares.

Weapon Familiarity (1 RP): Amazons are proficient with all bows and the atlatl.

Languages: Common. Amazons with high Intelligence can choose bonus languages from the following: Celestial, Elven, Ignan, or Sylvan.


One of the players in our group recently wanted to play a character that looked half snake and half person, but on an actual human scale (the stats for Marilith and Lillend Azata both make it clear they're giants based on the stats of their weapons), as well as without having it be some kind of angel/demon. Using the Advanced Races creation rules from the beta document made available, and a standard race 10 RP point buy set up - as well only options that weren't in advanced or monstrous categories (monstrous humanoid is not the same as a monstrous category selection) - we were able to put this together.

JUNGLE SNAKE PEOPLE

Type: Monstrous Humanoid (Reptillian)

Size: Medium

Land Speed: 30 ft.
Climb Speed: 20 ft. (+8 Racial Bonus on Climb Checks)
Swim Speed: 30 ft. (+8 Racial Bonus on Swim Checks)

Ability Modifiers: +2 Dex, +2 Strength, -2 Intelligence

Languages: Draconic, those with high intelligence scores may choose from the following: Common, Orc, Gnoll, Giant.

Racial Abilities:

- Jungle Snake People have Dark Vision 60 ft.
- Jungle Snake People have a +4 racial bonus to CMD against Bull Rush or Trip.
- Jungle Snake People always have Stealth and Perception as class skills.
- Jungle Snake People get a 10 ft. Racial Bonus when using Charge, Run, or Withdraw.
- Jungle Snake People can hold their breath while swimming for 4 times their constitution before they are at risk.
- Jungle Snake People may carry objects with their tail, but never to wield weapons. They may use the tail retrieve small stowed objects on their personage as a swift action.

POINT TALLY: (includes justifications)

- 0 Points: Standard Abilities (chosen to best balance with other players races)
- 2 Points: Monstrous Humanoid (includes Darkvision 60, they definitely have a specific animal feature rather than being completely humanoidish)
- 0 Points: Xenophobic Language (they don't get out much)
- 1 Point: Stability (It's not impossible to knock them down, but harder than normal without legs)
- 1 Point: Climb (all other similar monsters in the book had one)
- 1 Point: Swim (various similar monsters in the book had one)
- 1 Point: Sprinter (While doesn't normally go faster than other player races, can speed up in certain circumstances)
- 1 Point: Stalker (They are a race that most often hunts for food in a jungle)
- 1 Point: Hold Breath (The race often swims in jungle rivers and are very good at holding their breath for distance swimming)
- 2 Points: Prehensile Tail (There's little point in making a race where the point is a snake tail unless it does something)

TOTAL: 10 Points

The general idea of the concept is something like a tribal village of hunter/gatherer people deep in the jungle that happen to have a snake tail instead of legs. We're currently in the process of writing up an official lore information section, but I was wondering if anyone had thoughts on this so far. The name given might not be the actual final name when we're done, and we are definitely open to suggestion. We are especially open to suggestion if someone has a better idea for the set of languages available.

All ponies:

More pony stats...

YawarFiesta, you're my hero.

Okay, here's a few:

Shalan (Elven for "Immortal")
Type: Humanoid (0 RP)
Size: Medium (0 RP)
Speed: 30 - Normal (0 RP)
Stats: +2 to any one stat - Human Heritage (0 RP)
Language: Common - Standard Array (1 RP)
Abilities
Skill Ability - Skill Focus (Knowledge (History)) (2 RP)
Magical Ability - Raise dead, self only (7 RP I guess)
10 RP Race (I guess)

The 'Shalan' is in some book with elves (I really can't remember which one) the elven word for Immortal, and in a game I played a long time ago, that was the name for the immortals. Like, from the movie 'Highlander'. The raise dead, while a higher level spell than the rules allow, is self only, but does make teh character immortal (unless the head is cut off), so I figure that would be worth 7 RP, brining the total up to 10. Alternatively, you could replace 'Raise Dead' with 'Reincarnation' and call the race 'Time Lord' from Doctor Who.

Warforged (Because they're cool)
Type: Half-Construct(7 RP)
Size: Medium (0 RP)
Speed: 30 - Normal (0 RP)
Stats: +2 to Con, +2 to Intelligence, -2 to Charisma - Standard Mod (0 RP)
Language: Common and the language of the race that built them - Standard Array (1 RP)
Abilities
Defensive Ability - Natural Armor +1 (2 RP)
10 RP Race

Warforged are very sturdy and well constructed, and they are also programmed with a great deal of knowledge, but they have difficulty asserting themselves and understanding the complexities of other races, as they were only made for war.

Avari (The cat race I created before Bestiary 3 came out, based off Katt, Rei, and Clay from the Breath of Fire series)
Type: Humanoid (0 RP)
Size: Medium (0 RP)
Speed: 30 - Normal (0 RP)
Stats: +2 to Dex, +2 to Cha, -2 to Wis - Standard Mod (0 RP)
Language: Common and Avari - Standard Array (1 RP)
Abilities
Defensive Ability - Greater Defensive Training - +2 Dodge bonus to AC (3 RP)
Movement Ability - Sprinter - +10' movement when using run action (1 RP)
Movement Ability - Climb - 20' climb speed and +8 to Climb (1 RP)
Skill Ability - Stalker - Stealth and Perception always class skills (1 RP)
Skill Ability - Skill Bonus - +2 to Perception (2 RP)
Senses Ability - Lowlight Vision (1 RP)
10 RP Race

The Avari were the race I created back during the Pathfinder Beta (I think I even posted them during the Beastiary 3 beta) because I've always liked cat-people. Also, for everyone who know that the race in the games was called the 'Woren', I never thought that was a particularly good name, myself, so I ended up renaming the race my own name.


1/2-Oni (outsider, native, human)

12 RP race

size: medium
speed: 30
stats: +2 str, +2 con
claws
darkvision 120'
low light vision
natural armor +1
12 RP race

There were lots of cool magical abilities that could have been built into this race but my gm wanted to keep the rp points down to 12 or less so this is what we came up with. I'm looking forward to playing this character soon.

Half-nymph (Version 7)

Original Nymphs where minor godesses, beautfiful creatures of nature asociated with the stars, the montains, the rivers, the oceans, the arts, and so on (like the Dryades, Nereids, Aurae, Muses, Menead). The following heritage of the nymphs is far inferior. Still the half-nymphs are true to the nymphs heritage specially in their beauty and cunning. Magic and magical inspiration comes natural to them, so they are able spell casters (gonna add some special feauters for favored class).

Half-Nymphs would look otherwise as normal human, but they are far more beautiful in a way that surpasses the other earthly kin's and steps into the divine. A half-nymphs scent is delightful, her demeanor tends to be graceful and charming, and her mind quick and witty. They are specially good at convincing others to do their bidding and are hard to convince thereselves. Most of them wine up being capricious and selfish, but still they feel atracted to innocence and a purity of essence. They favor liberty above all (or almost all), and will feel inclined to reward anyone who aids her stay free.

Racial Traits
• Medium: Half-nymphs are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size. (0 RP)
• Normal Speed: Half-nymphs have a base speed of 30 feet. (0 RP)
• Low-Light Vision: Half-nymphs can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light. (1 RP)
• Nymph immunities: Half-nymphs get a +2 racial saving throw bonus against enchantment spells and effects.(1 RP)
• Unearthly grace: A half-nymph adds ½ of her Charisma modifier as a deflection bonus to her Armor Class and CMD if she wears no armor. (RP 5)
• Delicate figure: Half-nymphs are beautiful and cunning, but they are also frail.
+2 charisma, +2 intelligence, - 2 constitution. (0 RP)
• Beautiful voice: Half-nymphs add a +1 to “talked” usage of the bluff, perform, and diplomacy skills checks (feint and playing instruments don’t count). They also take a penalty of -2 on “talked” usage of intimidate checks. (1 RP)
• Languages: Half-nymphs begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Half-nymphs with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except for demonic languages like Abyssal). (2 RP)
• TOTAL: 10 RP

Racial Feats
• Harmonious melody:
o A song passed among generations of nymph’s that makes opponents regard you as more charismatic.
o Prerequisites: Cha 13, half-nymph.
o Benefit: Half-nymphs can sing a beautiful song 3 times per day that affects all non-nymph creatures within a 60-foot spread. This is done as a standard action. The song gives her a bonus of +1 on charisma checks against the creatures that listen to the song of all charisma based abilities including spells, skills, and nymph traits like unearthly grace and charming gaze. The effect lasts for one hour times the character level. Once a creature is affected by harmonious melody, it can’t be affected again for 24 hours. It’s a sonic effect and based on language.

Here's the race I made

Named after the delicate yet intricate metalworks on their bodies, the filigree are a race of humans who understand the the superiority of metal over the inherent weaknesses of flesh, and as such seek to perfect their body with mechanical enhancements. At birth, a piece of their body is amputated and replaced with a metal prosthetic. This prosthetic bonds with their body and grows with them. As a Filigree ages, this bond becomes stronger.

Physical Descriptions:
Filigrees look like humans except they have metal parts on their bodies, some of which replace existing body parts (usually an arm or leg). Additionally, Filigrees are commonly known for having purple eyes. Because they are still part human, Filigrees have skin colors that range from dark to white, with eye color that varies through different color (especially purple)

Society:
Because of their belief in self-perfection, all Filigrees specialize in some sort of skill to benefit their community. They live in tight-knit communities, and usually shun outsiders, seeing them as inferior. Filigrees do not speak common: They speak Zelky, a language known only by members of this race.

(7 RP)

Adaptability: Filigrees receive Skill Focus as a bonus feat at first level to reflect their specializations. (1 RP)

Lesser Spell Resistance: The metal enhancements in their bodies allow the Filigree to absorb some spells cast at them and discharge them into the air harmlessly with no effect. A Filligree has Spell Resistance equal to 6+its character level. (2 RP)
