Hi Kobolds, loving the New Paths classes, using the spell-less ranger as my default core Ranger class, and my wife is currently playing an 11th level skin-changer.
We ran into a question about the skin-changer. The Animal Shape (minorO ability says "His options for new forms include all creatures with the
animal type. This ability functions like beast shape I, except as noted". Later additions to the Animal Shape class ability reference Beast Shape II, III, etc.
I read this to mean that the skin-changer can take the form of any creature with the Animal type, and gains abilities of the chosen form as listed in the Beast Shape spells. However, in the Hero Lab file for skin-changers, magical beasts begin to be listed starting at 8th level.
Does Animal Form allow Magical Beasts as well as animals?
Thanks for all your great work!
Awesome to hear you are getting so much out of the classes in the New Paths Compendium!
You are reading the ability correctly - Animal Form only allows creature with the Animal type, just as the text says. It does not allow Magical Beasts as well as animals. It sounds like HeroLab is incorrect!
Thanks for the clarification Marc. I appreciate the assist.
