Spell / ability that's like Mr. Fantastic of Fantastic Four?


Is there any type of spell, ability, or even monsters that have the ability to stretch around like Mr. Fantastic from Fantastic Four? Closest I could find is the Rag Doll mutagen from the Alchemist class. Not really stretchy enough, but it may have to do if there's nothing else. Would be great if he could at the very least get reach from the stretch abilities.

This doesn't have to be optimal or anything, I'm simply looking for the ability for roleplay reason, not to be optimized or super powerful. Anything will do, even if it's a monster of some kind.

The Exchange

The choker is the only monster I can think of in PF with the kind of flexibility you're thinking of (3.5 had the boggle, but I think that critter was IP.) As for spells and powers allowing a PC to do it, I can't think of any in this edition. Psionics in 2nd and 3rd edition had powers that allowed the character to elongate limbs, and 1st edition had a spell I believe was called duo-dimension to make a character paper-like and flat, but I don't know of any PF equivalents.

Long Limbs (Ex): At 3rd level, your reach increases by 5 feet whenever you are making a melee touch attack. This ability does not otherwise increase your threatened area. At 11th level, this bonus to your reach increases to 10 feet. At 17th level, this bonus to your reach increases to 15 feet.

It only applies to melee touch attacks though.

You could cast the spectral hand spell and change the description of it.

Hmmm, choker with eldritch heritage, and the Lunge feat, that could work. Need a caster class that focuses on touch attacks, maybe bad-touch cleric. Sounds diabolical. I like it!

Changing the flavor text of spectral hand could work as well, hadn't thought of that.

Eldritch heritage won't work, you only get the level one bloodline ability.

That's what Improved Eldritch Heritage is for.

Longarm Bracers

These bracers are constructed from woven strands of bamboo. Three times per day, as a swift action, the wearer can stretch her arms beyond their limits, increasing her reach by 5 feet until the start of her next turn. Her weapon attack rolls take a –4 penalty, while unarmed strikes and natural weapons using the arms take no penalty.

Combine this with the Lunge feat and you can give yourself 15' reach. Very nice for casting if combined with Abberant as noted above; you can give yourself a total of 30' reach with melee touch attacks.

I'm surprised no one has mentioned Fluid Form. That spell has Mr Fantastic written all over it.

Thanks for the awesome suggestions guys. Longarm Bracers and Fluid Form will work as well. Now I have some great options to use. I think I'll go with Fluid Form because I like the Alchemist class for this character.

Choker (10ft) + Longarm Bracers (5ft) + Fluid Form (10ft) + Lunge (5ft) = one stretchy dude with 30ft reach on natural attacks. I can even settle for the 25ft reach and use a normal race. Gonna make for a fun villain!
