Hi! I invented a demigod class, notably overpowered but it was meant to be that strong.
It's basically Oracle, casting off WIS rather than CHA, with Heavy Armor and Martial Weapons proficiency, with free, no prerequisites, Combat Expertise. It makes for a pretty great end-campaign boss or a great, powerful good guy.
As for race, what you describe is basically a Skinshifter, isn't it?
And perhaps that's what I'd like him to be endgame - horribly overpowered for a good high CR boss battle, but I'd like him to initially graze the presence of our pathfinder world as a balanced PC in someone else's campaign. Maybe it's ambitious
Not quite a skinshifter. In essence it would just be full bear as per
but with higher intelligence, lower stats, and PC classes. I'm considering giving it a racial weakness that disallows it from wielding weapons but treats it's claws as light melee weapons for the purpose of extra BAB attacks.
