Toy Soldier

The imagination of children often calls out to the First World. Sometimes, when a child whose imagination bridges the gap between the material and the First World is noticed and targeted by fell forces from beyond the material plane, a spark of the vivid nature of the first world coalesces into a defender and champion. Regardless of whether this guardian fails or succeeds in his or her duty, it remains alive and sentient; becoming free to pursue it's own goal.

Standing eight to twelve inches tall, these beings are often composed of wood or tin, and with coloration or dress of many kinds as varied as there are races in the world what count toy makers or wood carvers among their number.

Type: Fey (Half Construct) 8 RP
- Low light vision
- +2 saves vs poisons, mind effecting effects, disease, and effects that cause fatigue or exhaustion
- Cannot be raised or resurrected
- Do not eat, breathe, or sleep unless they want to
Size: Tiny 4 RP

- +2 size bonus on attack rolls & armor class
- -2 penalty on Combat Maneuver checks & CMD.
+8 size bonus on stealth checks
Reach 0 feet.

Xenophobic Language Array 0 RP

Bonus Languages: Sylvan, Draconic, Common, Gnome
Fearless 1 RP

Toy Soldier Racial Traits
+2 Wisdom -2 Dexterity: Toy Soldiers possess a keen sense of intuition even when new to the world, though they are stiff in motion due to bodies carved, smelted, or sewn without intent for action.
Tiny: Toy Soldiers are Tiny sized creatures and gain a +2 bonus on attack rolls and armor class, a -2 penalty on Combat Maneuver checks & CMD, and a +8 bonus on stealth checks. They posses a reach of 0 feat and must enter an opponents square to attack them, this movement provokes an attack of opportunity.
Short Step: Due to their lacking stature, Toy Soldiers only have a base movement speed of 20 feet.
Low Light Vision:
Fearless: Toy Soldiers receive a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against fear effects
Animated Anatomy: Objects brought to life, Toy Soldiers gain a +2 on saving throws versus poisons, mind effecting effects, disease, and effects that cause fatigue or exhaustion. They do not need to eat, sleep, or breath unless they desire to do so that they may benefit from them.
Fragile Life: If a Toy Soldier is slain, he cannot be raised or ressurected.
Languages: Toy Soldiers begin play speaking the racial or cultural language of the child whose need gave them life. Toy Soldiers with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Sylvan, Draconic, Common, & Gnome.

I gave significant thought to giving this race a Fire Vulnerability, because even though they are not outsiders...I just see Wooden, Tin, or fluff made toys the kind of thing that would suffer greatly from flame. Anyhow...I give you the Toy Soldier. What do you think?


Skittering Scourge

Skittering scourges are multiple legged bug men with a penchant for adventure. Skittering scourges are driven out of their homes by a racial wanderlust that compels them to do an adventure, usually with other scourges, but sometimes with other groups and adventuring parties. They are typically well received, despite their nasty appearances as they are skilled fighters with positive personalities.

+2 Charisma, +2 Dexterity, -2 Wisdom
Wanderlust and their strong desire to prove themselves for status in their scourgeclans makes them a little loopy.
Medium
Standard speed
Standard languages (1 points)
Skittering (Sprinter and Climber) 2 points
Stalker (1 Point)
Low Light Vision and Darkvision (3 points)
Stability (1 point)
Skit Happens: Re-Roll Reflex save 1/Day (1 point)
Weapon Familiarity 1: Dire flail and ranseur proficiency. Scorpion whips are considered martial weapons.

Shadow Lodge

My take on my own homebrew elves.

Kaynavra: These warlike elves are constantly involved in conflict. Their home, the Phantom Zone is very hostile, each day they must fight to harvest their lands or forage for food. They are most numerous in the Petrified Forest where fungi grow on the mineralised trees. They live in fortified treetop retreats and use giant vultures to travel between communities. They are also skilled horse riders having learned much from their allies the Xungians. Society is fiercely opposed to magic and a total ban is imposed by a kind of military police called the Watchers.

Advanced Humanoid (Elf) 0 RP
Medium 0 RP
Fast speed 1 RP
Xenophobic array 0 RP
Flexible Modifier: +2 Dex, +2 Wis 2RP
Low Light Vision 1RP
Stalker 1RP
Weapon Familiarity: Bows and Kaynar(Elven knife, perhaps a Kukri) 1RP
Skill Bonus: +2 Climb, +2 Handle Animals 4 RP

Makes a 10 point build, but the inclusion of fast means they count as "Advanced"

Total RP: 40 RP

Analysis: This is a pretty cool write-up and gives some comparable feel of a Djinni but it’s not even close to other comparable races at this cost.
Example: The Half-Janni in the Qadira companion book is vastly superior to this race and is theoretically cheaper. The Half-Janni is rated as a +2 CR. This would be a +3 CR.


Just a Test.

Synthetic Human (Level: Monstrous)

While many humans believe themselves to be the ‘Greatest’ race among all of Golarion, a hubris that likely stretches across comic boundaries, they are but deluded fools that never see the merit of other races so not see his own purposeless existence. I have created those that will transcend the human disease, and will soon scorch it from this world and every other. “Fear. For We are among You.” -Father , Grimoires of a Full Metal Alchemist

Ability Score Modifiers: Advanced Modifiers (4 RP):

See in Darkness (4 RP): Synthetic Humans can see perfectly in darkness of any kind, including that
created by deeper darkness.
Defensive Training, Lesser (Human) (1 RP): The designated foes of Father are humans and thus all Synthetic Humans, willing or not, know inherently how to best evade the attacks on their person. Synthetic Humans gain a +4 Dodge Bonus to AC against Humans.
Defensive Training, Greater (3 RP): Determining that not being hit was the best defense of all Father hard-wired their synthetic minds for maximum evasive ability. A synthetic human gains a +2 dodge bonus to Armor Class.
Fortunate (4 RP): Synthetic Humans get a+2 racial bonus on all saving throws, as to maximize their strengths and overcome their weakness.
Hardy (1 RP): Synthetic Humans gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against poison, spells, and
spell-like abilities as they have modeled to survive more than mundane challenges.
Adaptability (1 RP): Synthetic Humans receive Skill Focus as a bonus feat at 1st level.
Bonus Feat (4 RP): Synthetic Humans select one extra feat at 1st level.
Skilled (4 RP): Synthetic Humans gain an additional skill rank at 1st level and one additional rank whenever they gain a level.

STILLBORN

The white skinned goblin baby looks down at you from the ceiling of the cave, its hollow eyes following your every step. You almost think that it could be dead, right up until the moment its mouth opens and the blood-curdling moan emerges.

Living Books

Every now and then, a wizard of potent capacity gets the bright idea of trying to distill all his knowledge down into an unnoticed receptacle, there for him to reclaim if need be, or his heirs to learn from. And what receptacle is more likely to go unnoticed in the world than the human body? So the wizard journeys to each of the Elemental planes, gathering a bit of material from each with which it fashions a vessel. Clay from the plane of earth is used to fashion a body, and elemental water becomes the blood within it, while air becomes it's first breath, and fire becomes the heat of life. Finally, a person is killed, its soul used to bind the elements together and anchor the magic that the wizard would preserve into the entity. But such creations often become self aware, and the power they can command when that happens, tapping into the knowledge they were meant to house, can beggar comprehension, as they make for some of the most potent sorcerers in existence.

Types: Outsider (Native), Humanoid (Human) 2 points
Medium Size 0 points

Slow Speed -1 point:
Most Living Books are crippled in some minor manner, a hallmark of the paranoia of their creators, who wanted to make sure that the knowledge they were making ambulatory could not run away.

Greater Paragon Modifiers (+4 Charisma, -2 Str, -2 Wisdom) -1 point:
Living books are usually created with the express intention of being likable, to help ensure that they are not destroyed due to malice they provoke, and simultaneously in hopes that this will prevent them from making new enemies for their creators. But because they are constructed as fully grown adults, they lack a certain degree of wisdom that humans typically learn during their childhood. Very rarely are they given a highly developed musculature, both because their wizardly creators are typically disdainful of such brutish tactics, and simultaneously fearful that a rogue book could overpower and destroy them at their weakest state if it were physically powerful.

Xenophobic Language Array Auran. Can also choose Ignan, Terran, Aquan, or Common based on intelligence score 0 points
Elemental Affinity x4 4 points:
Constructed as they are of the raw material of all the elements, Living Books possess a rather remarkable ability to utilize any of them. The possess the Elemental Affinity power for all four elements.

Bonus Feats (x2) 8 points:
I'd actually prefer to restrict these feats to metamagic only, but the rules aren't written so that is a workable option.

Light Blindness -2 points:
Eyes which were stolen from a dead man no longer possess the ability to adjust their retinas based on how much light is present, and this leaves a living book curiously vulnerable to sudden and bright lights, against which it's only recourse is to try and block them out with its eyelids.

Total: 10 points

Qittashar
Height ranges the same as humans, but they possess a more slim and graceful physique. Their eyes are large and almond-shaped with slits for pupils, and their irises are always amber or yellow. Their hair tends towards more dark and muted colors such as ash brown, cool grey, and jet black. Similarly, their skin tones are also dark, and are either ashen or ruddy brown. Since they are naturally a lustful race, they dress in as little as possible in order to attract the most attention. Whether that attention is positive or negative, they can make the best of either situation.

+2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, -2 Intelligence: Qittashars are sleek and beguiling, but often act with reckless abandon.
Medium: Qittashars are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Normal Speed: Qittashars have a base speed of 30 feet.
Darkvision: Qittashars can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Cat's Luck: Qittashars gain the following ability: 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.
Coordinated: Qittashars receive a +2 bonus on Acrobatics skill checks.
Light Sensitivity: Qittashars are dazzled as long as they remain in an area of bright light.
Seduction: Qittashars can use unnatural lust (Ultimate Magic, page 245) as a spell-like ability once per day. The caster level of this spell is equal to the Qittashar's character level.
Overawe: Qittashars receive a +1 bonus to either Diplomacy or Intimidate skill checks.
Stubborn: Qittashars 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 a Qittashar fails such a save, it 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 a Qittashar has a similar ability from another source (such as a rogue's slippery mind class feature), it can only use one of these abilities per round, but can try one on the second round if the first reroll ability fails.
Languages: Qittashars begin play speaking Common and Undercommon. Qittashars with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Abyssal, Giant, Gnome, Goblin, Infernal, Orc, and Terran.

The warriors scattered among the Ice Troll's, appear to be Elves carved from Shadow, and moon light.
Despite their physical resemblance to Elves, The cold fey of Irresen feel no kinship to the Elves of Golarian, (including the Drow), and treat them with the same disdain that they treat any who are not in the service of Baba Yaga.
The Winter Court is stationed in Chillblight, but sends it's minions throughout the lands of Irresen as perceived need, or the daughters of Baba Yaga command.
Appearance: Winter Fey are beautiful and graceful creatures, typically quite slender of build and standing a few inches taller than the average human. Their ears are 6 to 9 inches long and pointed, arching upward gracefully along the side of
the head to points just above the top of the skull. Their eyes are large and dark, showing no whites—and possesses a solid and vibrant hue, typically blue, violet, or silver, upon closer examination. Their hair is most often white, black, or silver, and their skin is always extremely pale, shimmering and flawless.
Cold Fey Racial Traits
+2 Dexterity, +2 Chatisma, –2 Constitution: Cold Fey are nimble, and alluring, but their form is frail.
Medium Humanoid (Fey): Cold Fey are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
Normal Speed: Cold Fey have a base speed of 30 feet.
Low-Light Vision: Cold Fey can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light. See Chapter 7. Fey Damage Resistance: Cold Fey gain DR 5/cold iron.
Shadow Resistance: Cold Fey gain cold resistance 5 and electric resistance 5.
Shadow Blending: Attacks made against Cold Fey while they are in dim light have a 50% miss chance instead of the normal 20% miss chance. This ability does not grant total concealment; it just increases the miss chance. This is a supernatural ability.
Keen Senses: Cold Fey receive a +2 racial bonus on Perception skill checks.
Weapon Familiarity: Cold Fey are proficient with longbows (including composite longbows), longswords,
rapiers, and shortbows (including composite shortbows), and treat any weapon with the word “elven” in
its name as a martial weapon.
Languages:Cold Fey begin play speaking Common and Sylvan. Cold fey with high Intelligence scores can choose
from the following: Aklo, Draconic, Dwarven, Giant, Gnome, Goblin, and Orc.

Lots of interesting ideas here! I like the idea of taking a core race and creating a modified version predicated upon a compelling back story. In this case I've created a variant of human stemming from this source: The Lost City. (Can be found in here too.) See also the D&D v.3.5 book "Elder Evils".

Cynidicean (Human)
The surviving descendents of the long lost and ill-fated kingdom of Cynidicea have arrived to start anew. With the horrors of Zargon finally behind them, this colony of survivors traversed many mysterious passage ways, crossed many dangerous realms, and have finally settled in dark lands vowing forever that, as they struggle to create a new civilization, they will bring light to the dark places of the "world". The pale-skinned Cynidiceans have actually changed over the generations of travel, and now they are determined to keep their dark history behind them.

Type: Humanoid (human) 0 RP

Size: Medium 0 RP

Base Speed: Normal 0 RP

Ability Score Modifiers: Human Heritage 0 RP

Languages: Standard 1 RP

Racial Abilities:
Illusion Resistance 1 RP (an adaptation from surviving many underground perils)
Poison Resistance 1 RP (an adaptation from rejecting their generations of drug use/exposure to mushroom spores)
Bonus feat 4 RP
Darkvision 60 ft. 2 RP (a mutation stemming from their generations of surviving in darkness)
Light sensitivity –1 RP (ditto)
Dreamspeaker 2 RP (also an adaptation relating to past drug use and their experience surviving the ravages of Zargon and his evil divine powers)

Total RP: 10

As an alternate, remove the darkvision and the light sensitivity, and add low-light vision. RP cost would remain at 10.

As another alternate, which would require more flexible guidelines, simply replace the darkvision with low-light vision. The RP cost would fall to 9, but this would fit the Cynidicean background better.

Edit: many small errors

Hailing from a distant world, the Watchers have traveled the vast rifts of the dark tapestry in an inscrutable quest. The goals of this interstellar mission is unknown to all but the watchers themselves, but it seems to involve collecting as much knowledge as possible. Watchers appear as a spherical object resembling a giant floating head, with one giant central eye and ten smaller eyestalks sprouting from the top of their 'heads'. Despite this horrific appearance, Watchers hold no malice towards this world or its inhabitants, and often show random acts of kindness to those in need.

In my homebrew world I used a couple of races from Star Wars and adapted them to a Renaissance-era level of technology. The Twi'leks of my world are sort of an Italian-like culture and are very innovative in the arts and sciences. The harems of the Turkish-based empire are full of Twi'lek females, and the reds are particularly valuable.

Twi'lek
Standard Race: 10 Points

Twi'leks are a humanoid species from the planet Ryloth. They have distinctive features including colorful skin, which vary in pigment from individual to individual, and a pair of shapely prehensile tentacles that grow from the base of their skulls. The tentacles, called "brain-tails", "lekku", or "head-tails" are used for communication and cognitive functions.

Silver Crusade

Pathfinder Adventure Path Subscriber

The Nephilim were constructs created by the gods centuries ago to purge the world of mortal life in order to start again with a clean slate. The war ended when half the Nephilim betrayed their gods in order to stand with mortal kind. The old gods in turn left the Nephilim behind. They have lost much of their power over the centuries.

Nephilim appear to be idealized humans made of white marble, glorious in their countenance, but slow to change and learn.

This is an excellent cat-like race! I would change survival to acrobatics (balance, tumble, jump...).


This is my stats for sprites. It's actually intended for NPCs mostly. I'm not sure what kind of a CR adjustment I should give it. Maybe none?
I intend it to be a generic set of stats for sprites in general, so there are still pixies, etc, so that I don't have to stat out every single variety of sprite.

Sprite Racial Traits

+8 Dexterity, +2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom, +2 Charisma, -4 Strength: Sprites are extremely agile and mentally superior, but very weak.

Tiny: Sprites have a +2 size bonus to their AC, a +2 size bonus on attack rolls, a –2 penalty on combat maneuver checks and to their CMD, and a +8 size bonus on Stealth checks. Sprites take up a space of 2-1/2 feet by 2-1/2 feet, so up to four of these character can fit into a single square. Sprites typically has a natural reach of 0 feet, meaning they can’t reach into adjacent squares. They must enter an opponent’s square to attack it in melee. This provokes an attack of opportunity from the opponent. Since it has no natural reach, it does not threaten the squares around it. Other creatures can move through those squares without provoking attacks of opportunity. Tiny creatures cannot typically flank an enemy.

Slow Speed: Sprites have a base speed of 20 feet.

Low-Light Vision: Sprites can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.

Fey Damage Resistance: Sprites gain DR 5/cold iron.

Fey Variety: Sprites come in a number of different varieties, thus they may select 4 rp worth of additional abilities to represent the differences between different kinds.

Flight: Sprites have a fly speed of 50 ft. with average maneuverability.

Natural Armor: Sprites gain a +1 natural armor bonus.

Sociable: When sprites 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.

Spell Resistance, Greater: Sprites gain spell resistance equal to 11 + its level.

New Race: Nascent

This pale man walks toward you with purpose. He grins over a sharply cut goatee and reaches within his cloak…

M Undead

Shambling Strength: Nascent have a base speed of 20 feet, but their speed is never modified by armor or encumbrance.
+2 Cha, -2 Dex: Nascent are determined, and their undead bodies are strong, if a little clumsy.
Senses: Darkvision 60ft
Undead Traits and Immunities
Light Blindness (Ex): Creatures with light blindness are blinded for 1 round if exposed to bright light, such as sunlight or the daylight spell. Such creatures are dazzled as long as they remain in areas of bright light.
Resurrection Vulnerability (Ex): A raise dead spell cast on a member of this race can destroy it (Will negates).

Spirits that are not necessarily evil and that have a strong enough will may create their own body in order to manipulate and roam the material plane. This they do to fulfill whatever great purpose that fueled their will. Near areas of Negative energy they form a cocoon of this same energy and hatch their own undead body on the material plane. If the cocoon is left undisturbed the process takes about a week.

Passing through planes in this manner is extremely difficult, and the spirit loses all memory of it’s past life. Mysteriously it knows a few words in a tongue other Nascent call Sermomortis. From birth the Nascent refers to itself by a name whos origin is not known. All they remember is an extreme desire to not be destroyed.

A Nascent is able to use some of it’s own life force as a catalyst to start the formation of other Nascent. Which it does for a sense of protection and maybe out of loneliness or dominance. It may do this a number of times equal to its charisma modifier.

Sometimes it does this almost immediatly after it manifests itself on the material plane, causing twins. This unique form of reproduction sometimes causes family trees, houses, and clans. With one matriarch or patriarch protecting and leading the family from the dangers of the living.

+16 Undead
-1 Slow Speed
-2? Ability Scores (Note: I started with paragon witch has -2 str -2 dex and +4 cha; but I wanted something more well rounded so I dropped the Cha to +2 and dropped the str penalty.)
0 Xenophobic Array, Sermomortis; Common, Elven, Dwarven, Draconic. (they like old languages)
-2 Light Blindness
-1 Resurrection Vulnerability

Total: 10

I took the liberty of trying to 'reverse engineer' the Powerful Build racial talent available to half-giants in Psionics Unleashed. It came down to three points (feel free to debate with me over this, but I feel it's fair and it was, after all, a racial feat for humans in 3.5 Forgotten Realms). Using this as a model, I whipped up some half-giants with a more Norse flavor, hailing from Muspelheim, Niflheim, and Jotunheim, respectively. So here they are, with an outsider twist even.

Muspelborn
+2 Str, +2 Int, -2 Wis (strong and calculating, but foolish)
Powerful Build (3 pts)
Native Outsider (2 pts)
Standard Language Array (1 pt)
Elemental Resistance (Fire) 5 (1 pt)
Pyromaniac (2 pts)
Hatred: Humans and Dwarves (1 pt)

Born of the fire giants of Muspelheim, the Muspelborn long remember their battles with humans and dwarves. Their heritage runs in their veins more strongly than in their cousins.

Niflborn
+2 Str, +2 Wis, -2 Con (powerful and wise, but their ties to death weaken their bodies)
Powerful Build (3 pts)
Native Outsider (2 pts)
Standard Language Array (1 pt)
Elemental Resistance (Cold) 5 (1 pt)
Negative Energy Affinity (-1 pt)
Craftsman (1 pt)
Ancient Foe (Humans) (3 pts)

Niflheim is a chilling place, not only of the body but of the soul. Niflborn bear the scars of living beings born from such a place, but even as their life force slowly ebbs from their bodies, fires of ancient hatred are constantly stoked within their breasts.

Jotunborn
+2 Str, +2 Cha, -2 Dex (though born to rule their kin, they suffer their jotun parents’ clumsiness)
Powerful Build (3 pts)
Native Outsider (2 pts)
Standard Language Array (1 pt)
Fiendish Resistance (2 pts)
Fearless (1 pt)
Sprinter (1 pt)

Jotunborn descend from the rulers of the jotuns, and as such have mastery over their cousins' domains as well as their own. Always the first into battle, they lead by example, allowing no prejudices to get in the way of glory.

==================================================================

Light-Maker Family

This little family of humans are almost always magewrights or artificers, though not always. They have picked up a distinct knack however, one that has turned them a pretty profit. This insular family feels no need to learn the languages of anyone else.

Light-Makers are mostly like normal humans, but do not learn languages from a high intelligence, and do not gain the bonus skill point per level due to their focus on their light making craft.

Light-Makers can use Continual Flame 2/day as a spell like ability as a cast of one level higher than their level. If they have an INT of 10 or higher, they can also use Light at-will.

They are also immune to light-based blindness and dazzle effects, and are treated as one level higher when determining the effects of any light-based spell or effects they cast (including spell-like and supernatural abilities).

They also gain a bonus feat at 1st level like any other human

Humanoid (Human), Human Heritage Modifier, Medium, Normal Speed (0 RP)

Light Bringer: (2 RP)
Spell Like Ability (Continual Flame, 2nd level, sorc/wizard version) 2/day (4 RP)

Note: Spell Like abilities do not have a material Component, thus making Continual Flame free to cast. Sell for large profit.

I came up with these guys a while ago and have only just now written them up all pretty. Maybe I will come up with the Full-Blood Darravi as a 20 point race at some point.

Darravi
The Darravi, despite the name, are half-human hybrids; as they are the offspring of the monstrous natives of Darrav and the humans who found themselves exiled to that plane. They are a young race, as there have only been two or three generations of human hybrids. Thus the Darravi have yet to find their place in the cosmos or even to realize the extent of the power in their blood. It is certain, however, that they possess the full spirit and resiliency of their human ancestors.
Physical Description: Darravi stand about as tall as their human parents, however, they have the red skin of their Full-Blooded Darravi side. Darravi also typically have a pair of spines projecting downwards from the corners of their mouths and upwards and sideways from their foreheads. These spines are far more pronounced in males than females. Darravi hair ranges from as red as their skin to deep black and their eyes follow a whole range of iridescent hues from blue to black to violet, often several shades at once.

Racial Traits:


  • +2 to One Ability Score:As they are actually half-human hybrids, Darravi characters get a +2 bonus to one ability score of their choice at creation to represent their varied nature.
  • Medium: Darravi are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Normal Speed Darravi have a base speed of 30 feet.
  • Low-Light Vision: Darravi can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
  • Darravi Blood: Darravi count as both Darravi and Humans for the purposes of
  • Magic Resistance: The mixture of their blood gives Darravi an unusual hardiness against magic. Darravi characters gain Spell Resistance equal to 6+their character level.
  • Latent Telekinesis: Full-Blooded Darravi sometimes manifest telekinetic powers. The influx of human blood has only amplified this tendency. A Darravi character with a Charisma of at least 11 may choose one of the following: Jump, Stone Fist, Farshot, or Floating Disk as a spell-like ability useable 1/day.
  • Predatory Decent: Full-Blooded Darravi are excellent hunters and teach their half-blood children to share this talent. Darravi characters always treat Perception and Stealth as class skills.
  • Sprinter: When the hulking legs of the Full-Blood Darravi are combined with the slighter human form, it produces an exceptionally good sprinter. A Darravi character gains a +10 ft. racial bonus to their speed when using the charge, run or withdraw actions.
  • Glib: The Darravi were trained well in the paranoia of their outcast human parents. Darravi Characters gain a +1 bonus to Bluff, Disguise and Knowledge(Local) checks.

Alternate Racial Traits:


  • Magically Forsaken: In some cases, the mixture of Human and Darravi blood does not awaken any latent magical talents, and instead has the opposite effect. They gain Spell Resistance equal to 11+their character level. This ability replaces the Magic Resistance and Latent Telekinesis Racial Traits.
  • Phalanx Coordination: In the emerging culture of the Darravi, coordination and loyalty are paramount. Up to two Darravi can share the same square at the same time. If two Darravi 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. This ability replaces the Predatory Decent and Glib Racial Traits.


Shadowfolk
Chiliax was not the first group of humanoids to deal with devils. Unfortunate for these people, their deals got them enslaved in the shadow planes. Eventually they won their freedom, but they were still stuck on this harsh plane for many generations.

You are correct, my bad. I would have changed it, but I didn't notice till it was too late.

Personally, I'm stoked about this. I'll be doing a lot of Forgotten Realms classics for Golarion conversions for my campaign. Bring on the Fey'ri.

I actually like this far more than I like the Advanced Races build for catfolk. The Wis penalty is just too much for me to get over, cats have decent wisdom, and it's a save-stat. I imagine cats would make good clerics in a fantasy setting, so the -2 str makes more sense.

This creature looks very human, but exceeds normal human limits of beauty. Having the little succubus blood she does have, she can resist elements and poison and social scene well, but a gift from her succubus ancestor's does give her ability to change shape, even if it is limited to humans.

-----------------------------------------

Decisions:
Stats+2DEX,+2INT,+4CHA
Why, a true succubus has a CHA of 26!
26-10=16, 16/2=8 (half-succubus level) 8/2 = 4 (succubus touched level).
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)
Succubi are known for their changing into the most desirable form, so I needed a shape change option, but limited as it losses potentacy.
I made the rest based on the qualities of various base races to allow for non-human teiflings.


Did anybody do warforged? If not, it needs to happen. Although, I guess I understand if it can't happen since it's probably product of the Rpg That Cannot Be Named...

Dark Halfling (Boggart)

Also known as boggarts, the dark halflings are twisted versions of the standard halflings. They delight in playing pranks on people and will often clandestinely move in with a family to concentrate their mischief on them--sometimes even following the family if they should move. They love to steal small but necessary items, spoil food, Chill Touch people in their sleep, frighten and hurt domestic animals, disguise themselves as monsters just to frighten children, and break items when nobody is looking. They have no lands or homes of their own, but instead slip in out of the dark places built by others. They are superstitious and fear good luck charms and salt (due to their belief it will rob them of their abilities). Though they understand common, they prefer to speak a corrupted version of halfling peppered with cuss words and slang.

This is an idea I have had for quite a while but never had the knowledge/know-how to build. Any suggestions, comments, ideas? I'd love to hear from you (in another thread of course)

Seedborn (10RP)

Seedborn are a patient and stoic race, born from magical seeds of unknown origin. These seeds only germinate in the remotest areas as they must remain undisturbed for a long period of time. Reaching maturity takes 200 years of waiting alone, without the ability to move or converse, only listen and contemplate the world around them and themselves. They are rare to be seen, but are known to be trustworthy and wise amongst those few that have heard of them. Seedborn are always very attatched to their place of birth, but are great wanderers. Maturity is reached when they are able to walk and so they search unerringly far and wide for the secrets of their origins and take great pleasure in learning as much as they can about other races and places, perhaps in leiu of their own life.

Physical Description
Seedborn can vary largely in size and shape, they are much like humans in body shape. Their skin is thick and very hard wood, the colour and grain depends on the environment in which they were grown, ranging from sandblasted white to the darkest ebony. Their eyes are very large and almond shaped, with bright coloured iris' coming in hues of plant leaves or flowers backed by wooded blackness. Their teeth similiarily are black and broad, often shown with a wide grin.

Society
Seedborn do not have a structured society to speak of. They are so few that two meeting is a rarity, more is highly unlikely. Solitary childhood and a inborn wanderlust make Seedborn socities almost impossible to found. Some people say that if a Seedborn were to stay in the same place for too long she would lay roots and never move again.

Relations
Seedborn strive to befriend everyone and guide them with their infinate patience and wisdom. This brings them into many race's good graces but forms a natural enimity with the more impulsive races such as Half-Orcs. Seedborn get on particularly well with the elves as they are both born from the land but are sometimes uneasy around Dwarves and humans due to their industrialization, they see it as a perversion of the natural way of things. They do not begrudge either of these races, but rather look on them with reserved pity.

Alignment and Religion
Seedborn are ever patient and contemplative, they tend towards Lawful Neutral but this can differ depending on their place of birth and lifestyle after reaching maturity. They are never born into religion but may find it in their travels. They tend towards worshipping Erastil, Gozreh and Irori.

Adventurers
The Seedborn are natural adventuring companions, they are constantly seeking new knowledge and stimulations or a hint of their own origin. They strive to get on well with all companions and are hardy enough to hold their own in battle.

Male Names
Core, Oen, Birk, Sattle, Cohen
Female Names
Lil, Sap, Brich, Cayan, Forin

Medium (0RP) Seedborn are medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.

Slow Speed (-1RP) 20ft Due to their stoic nature and hardend bodies, Seedborn do not travel as fast as others of their size.

Plants have the low-light vision racial ability
Plants are immune to all mind-affecting effcts
Plants are immune to pralysis, poison, polymorph, sleep effects and stunning
Plants breathe and eat, but do not sleep, unless the want to gain some effect.

Elemental Vulnerability Fire (-2RP) Seedborn are made of wood and therefore very vulnerable to flame

Treespeech (2RP) Seedborn have the ability to converse with plants as if subject to a continual speak with plants spell,

Stability (1RP) Seedborn receive a +4 racial bonus to their Combat Maneuver Defense when resisting a bull rush or trip attempt while standing on the ground.

Languages(0RP)
