New Race: Taokaga -Dove-like humanoids-

Ability Stats: +2 Con, -2 Str

Small Size

30' Land movement

Low-light vision

+4 Racial Bonus on Diplomacy and Sense Motive

Natural Weapons 2 Claws (1d3)

Humanoid (taokaga)

Special:
-Great Ally – When on the giving or receiving side of an Aid Other check, the Taokaga receives +3 (vs. +2) & when attacking a foe that is Flanked by an ally, the Taokaga receives +4 (vs. +2).
-Mimicry – Able to Mimic sounds, voices, & accents. Bluff vs. Sense Motive check to trick someone.

Closely linked to Kenku, Taokaga are also small bird-like people. Both Kenku and Taokaga populations in Aaralynn had been thinned by Bathurians, so locating them is especially hard.

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

New Race: Royali -City-dwelling Fey-

Coming later

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

Masterwork weaponry and armor exists in levels of +1, +2, +3. Masterwork weaponry only adds to the attack bonus not the Damage. Masterwork Armor only subtracts from the check penalty it does not add to the Armor Bonus.
Weapons: (+1 masterwork)= +300 gp, (+2 mwk)= +2000 gp, (+3 mwk)= +4000 gp.
Armor: (+1 mwk)= +150 gp, (+2 mwk)= +500 gp, (+3 mwk)= +2000 gp
Masterworking of any kind does not stack with an equivalent magic property. (a master work weapon has +1 attack, +0 damage. A +1 weapon has +1 attack, +1 damage)

Artisan Qualities for weapons and armor exist en masse. To Have an Artisan Quality the item at hand must be at least +1 Masterwork. Artisan qualities must be attributed to the item at creation, and cannot be added later.
Here's some useful ones:

Descriptions:

Weapons and Armor:

Acid Washed: Is composed of two different types of metal, i.e. Steel & Bronze. Cost of both materials is required on top of the artisan quality cost. The qualities of both materials are retained. Also gains a +4 on saving throws against acid, rust or disintegration.

Ornate: Decorative Combat equipment, commonly for parades. +2 Diplomacy or Intimidate (chosen when made), when wielded in the proper situation.

Resilient: Very durable materials make for the most effective items over long periods of time. Weapons and armor gain 5 more HP regardless of original materials.


Armor

Caster Armor: Armor made to cater to the needs of spell-casters. Reduces the spell failure of an armor by 5%.

Environmentally Designed: Armor made to be useful in harsh environments. Armor for hot environments is ventilated for better cooling, while armor for cold environments has insulation built on the insides. It denotes a +2 to saving throws against harsh weather conditions either hot or cold (determined at creation).

Lightweight: Very sought after armor made to be lighter while being just as effective. Armor with this quality weighs 20% less, or 1 pound whichever is heavier.

Reinforced: One of the most sought after of armor qualities. It can transform a lesser armor into something more. Adds 1 to the Armor Bonus of the armor.

Segmented: A craftier trick of the armoring trade. Heavy armor doesn't do much for the wearer if they absolutely cannot move. Segmented armor utilizes the methods of making armor by integrating more points of articulation within it. Adds 1 to the Maximum Dexterity limited by the armor.

Vital Coverage: The largest flaw of certain armors is their vital areas are exposed slightly due to needing the ability to be mobile. A method of creating panels that block off exposed flesh while not harming the effectiveness of the armor. Adds 1/2 of the armor's AC Bonus against any attack roll to confirm critical.


Weapons

Basket Hilt: An ornate and special guard made to guard the hand of the wielder. Grants a +4 against attempts to be disarmed.

Blood Groove: The fuller aka the blood groove, is a furrow that rolls from the hilt to just before the tip of the sword. It is designed to make the blade more lightweight and stronger. Adds an additional +2 to the hardness and reduces the weight by 20% or to 1/2 lb, whichever is heavier.

Deceptive: Although not preferred by many, especially officials of the law, this type of weapon is disguised to resemble something else. Adds +4 to Sleight of Hand checks to conceal the weapon or otherwise hide it.

Folded Metal: A technique used to enhance the strength of a blade to taking a hit. Grants +4 Hardness to the weapon.

Long-Range: An ever so clever technique bowmakers have come about to slightly increase the range of ranged weaponry. Adds 20' to the range increment of the bow or crossbow.

Perfect Balance: When one values stability, one seeks out a weapon with this quality. Grants an additional +1 to AC when using the total defense or fighting defensively options.

Razor Sharp: The extreme coaxing of an ever sharper blade is given up on by most, but those who find themselves able also find themselves well employed. Razor Sharp Quality grants +1 damage to a weapon.

Serrated: Built to cut like a saw, gashes resulting from serrated blades can be incredibly nasty. Following a successful critical hit, a serrated weapon deals an additional 1 damage of bleeding for 1d4 rounds.

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

Mechanics Addition: Crouching:

While crouching, one's speed drops to one half normal. The crouching person gains +2 AC against ranged attacks, but -2 AC against melee attacks. In addition to these the crouching person gains a +1 circumstance to attacks while using a hand or light crossbow. While making a melee attack roll however they take a -2 on all attack rolls while crouching. It takes a swift action to move into crouched position, and a move action to move back to standing, which provokes an attack of opportunity. The Feat Prone Attack confers the same negation of subtracted AC as prone and negation of penalty to melee attacks.

Crouching defers a +4 Bonus to Move Silently however the same rules apply to the new movement speed. If one wishes to utilize this bonus must move at half of their halved speed, i.e. one quarter speed, due to their full speed in a crouch being altered.

You may run while crouching, however only for a number of rounds equal to one quarter (rounded down) your Con Score, and the checks to continue running after this period increase by 2 rather than 1.



While Prone, in addition to gaining +4 AC against ranged attacks and -4 against melee attacks, they gain a +2 circumstance bonus to attack rolls while using any kind of crossbow (not cumulative with the bonus to attack for crouching).


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

Mechanics Addition: Choking

In a grapple you may attempt to choke your opponent into unconsciousness. This option is only available for creatures you can normally win an offensive grapple against (One size category larger), that breathes and has a block-able airway.


In the grapple, you must choose to cover their mouth/block their airway. If you are blocking their airway They remain conscious for a number of rounds equal to their Constitution Score (A creature with the Hold Breath ability, such as Lizardfolk or a similar ability can remain conscious for a number of rounds equal to 2 times their Constitution Score).
Explanation:
 


As an attack option in the grapple you make a Strength check opposed by the target's Constitution Check (Endurance applies if applicable). If the attackers Strength check does not exceed the target's Constitution check, rounds of consciousness continue to count down as normal. If the attackers Strength check does exceed the target's Constitution check then for every one point above, the number of rounds the target is able to remain conscious is decreased by one. If the target has the feat Diehard they add 10 + Con Mod number of rounds that they remain conscious while being choked however they are staggered during those rounds and may only take either one move or one standard action.

If the target escapes the grapple, they must take a move action to gather back their breath. If they do not do so the count of number of rounds remains where it was when it left the grapple. If the attacker catches the target unaware and in the same round attempts to choke them they add a +4 to their Strength checks during the round which the target is unaware.

PostSubject: Class Changes   Thu Jan 03, 2013 4:49 pm

Class Alterations

Martial Maneuvers save DCs work closer to that of spell save DCs, rather than being 10+Maneuver Level+Relevant Modifier, it is 10+1/2 Initiator Level+Relevant Modifier. This is so maneuvers will level better as you go along (I'm not sure why they made it different from regular special abilities which follow this formula)

Martial Adept Classes in Aaralynn (as detailed within book of Nine Swords) are changed as follows, mainly dealing with the different styles (disciplines):

Scorching Gale (Desert Wind) Style no longer exists in Aaralynn due to the last surviving school of the style being swept into the ocean south of what is now the Kelly Desert circa 1414.

Devoted Spirit Style is helmed entirely by worshipers of Mileni, mainly aasimars. Users of Devoted Spirit will not teach the style to an evil being, and if a user is found to be utilizing the style for evil ends, the scholars of the style act quickly to bring an end to the misuse of power. Associated weapons no longer include greatclub and maul, but instead are greatsword and bastard sword.

Diamond Mind is unchanged.

Iron Heart is unchanged.

Setting Sun does not exist.

Aperto Escuro (Shadow Hand) is only known by a drow order, and only taught to other drow in the order. The drow of this order refuse to teach the techniques to anyone who is not fully-blooded drow, even if they have 1/8th of another race's blood.

Tama Hebi (Stone Dragon) is unchanged.

Tiger Claw is unchanged.

White Raven is unchanged. It is taught by both Kenku and Taokaga mainly, mostly to other Kenku or Taokaga.

All names of maneuvers and stances remain the same.


Martial Adepts do not exist in Shuulmenth Tsuiho, nor do they apparently exist in Keifel/Schriemann. Although Martial Adepts do not exist in Shuulmenth Tsuiho Martial Manuevers are still known by many.

Martial Adepts are commonly found in Wyruulanthea, mainly employed by The Universal Taskmasters of Society.

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

Feat Progression for a Fighter instead of being;
Gain Feat at Levels 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, 10, 12, 14, 16, 18, 20
becomes;
Gain Feat at Levels 1, 2, 4, 5, 7, 8, 10, 11, 13, 14, 16, 17, 19, 20

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

Kensai (Fighter Variant) Base Class has its title changed to Specialist.

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

Knight Class is being handled by Leeland.

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

Ninja Class is completely changed as follows:

Abilities: The Abilities that a ninja requires depends upon their choice in ninja specializations. Both Dexterity and Wisdom are useful across the board to all ninjas due to them both contributing to their AC.

Alignment: Any

Four different Clans of Ninja exist in Aaralynn, each with their own goals and intentions. No Clan is known to the public at large, however the existence of each is common knowledge to the Ninja Clans themselves. In areas of influence they may be notable, or known but rarely so outside of this area. They are as follows:

The Iga Ninja Clan: The Clan of Ninja in the west of the Aaralynn island. A self-contained and reserved clan of ninja concerned only with the protection of those oppressed and the area considered by them as still "The Iga Province". Formed by Grandmaster Dosan and Higure Hattori. Formed before the Gorgeth Regime overtook the island nation, however it officially asserted its presence by combating the control of the Gorgeth in the west of the island. The Monastic Order associated with them maintains itself as a policed force in the Iga region. Based somewhere around Kammi.

The Setting Sun Ninja Clan: A reclusive Clan of Ninja in the northern span of Aaralynn. Their focus in ninjitsu is mobility, being affiliated with the Weightless Foot Order of Aaralynn. They are the keepers of a special technique which grants them overland flight. The Clan is based near the cities of Sheena and Janelle, with the Weightless Foot Order based between the close points of the Mei River nearby the Yulia Lake. They are the rival Clan to the Iga of the West.

The Arahavolga Ninja Clan: The Clan of Ninja run by the Government of Aaralynn. Utilized mainly in espionage during times of conflict, protection of important persons, objects or documents, and subversion of threats to public safety. As a part of The Internal Affairs Division of The Government of Aaralynn, they are a publicly acknowledged force, but its membership and abilities are not disclosed to anyone. Even other Clans are not fully aware of their abilities. Lead apparently by Leonidas Sergisenn: Councilman of Internal Affairs of The Government of Aaralynn. Officially Acknowledged in 1508 with the establishment of the current government, however it is not known exactly when it was formed. Bases are unknown, but assumed to be in larger cities.

The Shun-Torga Ninja Clan: The Lost Clan of Ninja. The Shun-Torga seem to have disappeared completely from the radar even to other Ninja Clans. Their presence seemed to wane in the 1550's. Utilized assassination tactics to move as influence to those in power before disappearing. From time to time small hints of their presence are found in the present day. Thought to have originated in Kursio before the Gorgeth Regime took control of Aaralynn while the smaller island was still under the influence of The Orayshiman Empire. Leader and Bases are unknown.



Multiple separate Clans of ninja exist in the land of Wyruulanthea. Some engage in wars for lands or are the driving force behind societal conflicts. Known ones are as follows:

The Karashi Clan: The Clan of The Wasabi Family. The Karashi Ninjas are the clan who serve The Wasabi Family. The Wasabi Estate is nestled in the West of Wyruulanthea. Apparently an offshoot of an older clan of ninjitsu which is now defunct; The Dijyono. Once Taught by Grandmaster of Karashi: Tamakao Karashi. After the ascension of the United Taskmasters of Society to political power, the Karashi have gone deep undercover, even by the standards of common ninjitsu practice. It is rumored that they fight against the oppression of the government.

The Hadanshi Clan: The Clan from the Island of Lansasri. The Hadanshi Ninjas long protected the shores of Lansasri. Before it was swallowed by the sea, it is rumored that one of the masters of their clan's arts escaped to safety.

The Mizute Clan: The Clan that asserted dominance in the Yuoleng Region of Wyruulanthea. After extended periods of internal conflict within the water heavy area of the east of Wyruulanthea, The Mizute clan gained ruling power from stealing the knowledge of nearby rival clans and amalgamating their abilities into their own repertoire.


Others include, but are not limited to:

The Zayatsimimi School: The Mimitaro Ninjitsu Teachings. The Zayatsimimi school is not as much a clan of it's own but one half of the training undergone by the protectors of the Mimitaro people, The King's Instruments. The art of stealth and precision is used in conjunction with martial training to quell the enemies of the Mimitaros of Beshfell. Derived from Ancient Elven Ninjitsu techniques.

Fast Movement: As a ninja progresses in level their movement increases as shown on the table. A ninja in armor (even light armor) or carrying a medium or heavy load loses this extra speed.

Different Ninja Clans also gain access to unique special abilities for their Clan which are also listed below. Certain Ninjitsu Talents require previous Ninjitsu Talents or other prerequisites which are listed in their descriptions. A Ninja may choose any Ninjitsu Talent which has already been made available to them.

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

Samurai Class is completely changed as follows:

Abilities: The Abilities of a Samurai are mostly best determined by specific clan the Samurai is a part of. Strength is useful across the board.

In Aaralynn, the following Clans exist:

Lion: Spread about the east coast of Aaralynn. Mainly populated by Human, Catfolk and Leonin Families. Focus on Awareness and Endurance are the tenants of Lion Clan training. Constitution and Wisdom are the scores associated with Lion Samurai. Ancestral Weaponry include Katana, and Jian (longsword). A Temple is located in the City of Torin, with two Shrines located in Belva and Eliza.

Scorpion: Spread about the Southeastern area of Aaralynn between the west edge of the Kelly Desert and the east bank of the Rooney Lake. Composed mostly of Dwarven and formerly Gnome families. With the disappearance of the Gnome people went a majority of the Samurai and families of this clan. Focus on Deception and Misdirection are the tenets of Scorpion Clan training. Dexterity and Charisma are the scores associated with Scorpion Samurai. Rivals to the Wren Clan of the North. Ancestral Weaponry include Katana, Scythe, and Guandao (Halberd). A Temple is located in Ardith, and a Shrine is located in Anne.

Wren: Spread about the Northwestern area of the Island of Aaralynn. Composed mainly of Human, Elven, and Catfolk families. Focus on Mobility and Speed are the tenets of Wren Clan training. Dexterity and Charisma are the scores associated with Wren Samurai. Rivals to the Scorpion Clan to the South. Ancestral Weaponry include Katana, Pi Bian (Whip) and Da Dao (Glaive). A Temple is located in Matilda, with three Shrines located respectively in Janelle, Sheena, and Porsche.

Dog: Spread across the western coast of Aaralynn. Composed mainly of Human and Wolf-folk families. Focus on Mounted Combat and Archery are the tenets of Dog Samurai training. They are common to ride on Riding Dogs. Dexterity and Wisdom are the scores associated with Dog Samurai. Ancestral Weaponry include Katana, and Composite Longbow & Shortbow. A Temple is located in Kammi, and there are two Shrines, one in Laaysa and one in Aveline.

[Crab]: The Crab Clan is defunct. It is an ancient clan that no longer continues tutelage in the way of the samurai. Spread along the eastern coast of Mondoe and the entire nation of Kursio. 90% of the weaponry of the clan are in possession of the last surviving families, with the rest either destroyed or otherwise unaccounted for. Much of the techniques of the style were engraved upon the weaponry leaving some to find them and take up the style through self-teaching. Cloistered Defense and Overwhelming Power are the tenets of Crab Style. Ancestral Weaponry include Katana (all accounted for), Greatclub (some missing) and warhammer (some missing). The Shrines of the Crab Clan are in Miitool on Mondoe and Kenoto in Kursio, with the Temple within the underwater region of Kursio.

[Dragon]: The Dragon Clan is defunct. The ancient clan tasked with defending Karazann The Engineer. Karazann was said to be on a first name basis with all the Dragon Clan Samurai, knowing all 144 personally. The Samurai of the Clan were alleged to have been able to fly with magical aid from Karazann. The techniques associated with the Dragon Clan are two-weapon fighting and Unarmed Combat, although this is merely speculation. With the sinking of the stretch of land connecting what is now Aaralynn and Mondoe, so was sank all of the Ancestral Weaponry and Clan Shrines of The Dragon Clan. Very few weaponry of the clan have been found and are on display in a museum in Farrah. There are no users of the Dragon Clan Style, and there are no known remaining families. The locations of the Temples and Shrines are lost as well.


Alignment: Any Lawful

Special: A samurai may only be a member of one clan.

A samurai who ceases to be lawful or who commits an act of grave dishonor loses all samurai class features that depend on Charisma or Charisma-based checks. This includes the use of Ancestral weaponry which becomes a masterwork weapon in the hands of the former samurai as when they were level 1. Minor embarrassments don’t count, but major breaks with the code of bushido do. Acts that could lose a samurai his status include disobeying an order from a superior officer or feudal lord, fleeing in cowardice from an important battle, being caught in a major lie or other breach of integrity, and appallingly rude behavior. A disgraced character may not progress any farther as a samurai. He regains his class features the ability to advance in the class if he atones for his violations (see the atonement spell, page 201 of the Player’s Handbook), assuming the feudal lord offers a chance at redemption. (Some feudal lords demand ritual suicide as the only act that cleanses the stain of dishonor.)

Like a member of any other class, a samurai may be a multiclass character, but multiclass samurai face a special restriction. A samurai who gains a level in any class other than samurai may never again raise his samurai level, though he retains all his current samurai abilities. The way of the samurai demands constant adherence to the code of bushido. Samurai may sometimes take levels in particular prestige classes without violating this code.

Some disgraced samurai take levels in the Ronin prestige class (Update to come later) which gives them a chance to regain their lost class features.

Kiai Smite remains the same as in Complete Warrior.

Weaponry of The Ancestors: Each Samurai begins play with a pair of weapons bestowed upon them by their clan. One of which is one of the Ancestral Weaponry of their clan and the other is either a wakizashi (shortsword) or a tanto (dagger). The weaponry is hand-crafted by the Anointed Smith of the Clan. These weapons have been passed down through their families for years. These weapons are are an integral part of the Samurai and protecting them is a part of their code. As a samurai acquires treasures through adventuring, they may awaken supernatural abilities within their Ancestral Weapon. At anytime, a Samurai may retreat to a temple or shrine of their clan and spend time in prayer to enhance their Ancestral Weaponry. This requires a sacrifice of valuable items shown on the table below.this sacrifice does not have to be gold, the character can sacrifice magical or other valuable items worth the required amounts. The Samurai must meet the minimum character level including any prestige class levels shown on the table and spend 1 day per 1000 gp sacrificed in the shrine or temple. During this time they must spend at least 8 hours per daykneeling before his ancestors and weapons not stopping to eat or sleep.

The values shown on the below table are the total value of sacrifice required to bring a single weapon to the listed weapon bonus. Before a Samurai's weapon can become a +1 weapon it is an ordinary masterwork weapon in every way. Its latent supernatural powers do not cause it to be considered a magic weapon in anyway until those powers are awakened. A Samurai who loses his Ancestral Weaponry is dishonored until he can recover them. They cannot enhance any other weapons in this way.

Weapon BonusTotal Sacrifice RequiredMinimum Character Level
+12,000 gp4th
+28,000 gp7th
+318,000 gp9th
+432,000 gp11th
+550,000 gp13th

+7*98,000 gp15th
+8*128,000 gp16th
+9*162,000 gp17th
+10*200,000 gp18th
Due to the tapering of magical power in Aaralynn, the needed sacrifice for a Samurai's weapon is multiplied by 3/2. Ex: +1 becomes 3,000, +2 becomes 12,000 etc...


Frightful Presence as the feat, adding drawing one's weapon to the list of actions which trigger the ability. If the samurai already possesses this feat, then this adds 3 to the DC needed to resist the effect.

Bonus Feats are selected from different lists based on which clan the Samurai belongs to. To take the feat the Samurai must still have all prerequisites.

**: New Feat Listed Below exclusive to this Clan of Samurai.

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

Swashbuckler Class is Completely changed as follows:

Abilities: The lightly armored swashbuckler depends on a high Dexterity for her Armor Class, as well as for many class skills. High Intelligence and Charisma scores are also hallmarks of a successful swashbuckler. Strength is not as important for a swashbuckler as it is for other melee combatants.

Alignment: Any.

Hit Die: d8.

Skill Points: 6+Int Mod

Skills: Appraise (Int), Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Diplomacy (Cha), Escape Artist (Dex), Forgery (Int), Gather Info (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local) (Ship) (Int), Listen (Wis), Open Lock (Dex), Perform (Cha), Profession (Shipwright) (Sailor) (Wis), Search (Int), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Speak Language, Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), Tumble (Dex)

19th+19/+14/+9/+4+11+11+6Dodge Bonus 7
20th+20/+15/+10/+5+12+12+6Severing Critical
Class Features:
Weapon Proficiencies: Simple, Light & One Handed Martial, & Whip
Armor Proficiency: Light

All Class abilities remain as in Complete Warrior except as where noted here:

Dextrous Grip: Any weapon which would be considered a one handed melee weapon you may use as a light weapon. This allows you to use Weapon Finesse with said weapon. You may not use both hands to deal 1&1/2 Str Mod to damage or use Power Attack with said weapon unless you forgo using weapon finesse with it.

Dodge Bonus: Your Dodge Bonus from the Dodge feat increases to +2. You may split it as you please amongst multiple targets. This increases every 3 levels. Your dodge bonus to your AC against a target may not exceed the difference between your Hit Dice+1, Minimum 2. Ex. a 19th level Swashbuckler is fighting a 23 Hit Dice Creature and 2 16 Hit Dice Creatures. They can only apply 5 of their dodge bonus to their AC, however they may use their remaining 2 Dodge Bonus against one of the 16 Hit Dice Creatures or 1 on each.

Unlike the normal Dodge Feat, this bonus is negated if wearing more than light armor or carrying more than a light load.

Improved Flanking: As ability in Complete Warrior except the bonus to the swashbuckler increases by 2 every six levels. This Class ability effectively nullifies the personal effect of the Superior Flanking Feat, however it does correlate the secondary effect still if a swashbuckler has said feat.

Luckier: As Lucky but now 2/day

Severing Critical: A Critical hit dealt by a Swashbuckler deals 2 Dex damage on top of the 2 Str and 2 Con damage they already deal from Weakening & Wounding Critical. On top of this, a swashbuckler's Int Mod is added as a bonus to the ability damage dealt by Weakening, Wounding & Severing Critical.

Weightless Foot is reworked entirely as follows:

The Way of The Weightless Foot is that of focus and training to attain the ability of self-propelled flight. Those who do achieve this goal are flying forces to be reckoned with.

Hit Dice: d8

Class Requirements:

Alignment: Any Non-Chaotic

Feats: Dodge, Mobility, Leap of The Heavens

Skills: Balance 9 ranks, Jump 9 ranks, Tumble 6 ranks

Special: Evasion, Ki Strike (magic) or Ki Pool
Must have passed the Trial of The Cloudmaster and be accepted into the Weightless Foot Order

9th+6/+1+3+6+6Weightlessness
10th+7/+1+3+7+7Flight of Fleet Feet, Flight (Full Speed)
Class Features:

Weapon Proficiency: Martial
Armor Proficiencies: None

Monk/Ninja Abilities: This class counts alongside the character's monk or ninja levels to determine certain bonuses dependent on which class gives them the prerequisites for this prestige class. For a Monk they retain their Unarmored AC Bonus, Unarmed Strike Damage, and Unarmored Speed bonus, and for a Ninja they retain their Unarmored AC Bonus, Sudden Strike Damage, and Ki Pool. This class counts for 1/2 levels for a ninja to qualify for Ninjitsu Talents gained by way of the Ninja Aptitude Feat. If the character has both Ninja and Monk levels then they must choose one class to retain the bonuses to, and this choice cannot be changed later.

Perfect Acrobat: A Weightless Foot gains their character level as a bonus to all Balance, Climb, Jump, Move Silently, and Tumble Checks.

Flight: At 1st Level the Weightless Foot has harnessed their Ki to a point of being able to fly with Good Maneuverability at their Base Land Speed (as in Not augmented by their Unarmored Speed Bonus). At 3rd Level their Maneuverability increases to Good. At 7th it again increases to Perfect. At 10th Level The Weightless Foot's flight speed is equal to their Base Speed + Unarmored Speed Bonus.

Trackless Step: A Weightless Foot of 2nd level no longer leaves behind a physical trail. Conventional methods of tracking are no longer able to find them.

Uncanny Step: At 3rd level a Weightless Foot can include vertical surfaces in her movement. They can travel on a vertical surface provided that they start and end their movement on a horizontal surface. The Weightless Foot may take a double move action while doing so, effectively making the limit of their movement 2x their normal movement. If a Weightless Foot would end their movement while not on a horizontal surface, they fall from that space, however their slow fall ability applies. A Weightless Foot still provokes Attacks of Opportunity while making this movement.

Fast Acrobatics: A Weightless Foot no longer suffers the penalties associated with accelerated movements. They ignore the -5 penalty to Balance checks while moving at full speed. They can Climb at half speed as a move action without taking the -5 penalty on their Climb check. Finally, they can Tumble at full speed without taking the -10 penalty to their Tumble check.

Improved Evasion: As the special ability Evasion, save the Weightless Foot takes half damage on a failed save.

Step of The Water Lily: At 5th level, a Weightless Foot gains the ability to move over water as if under the effect of a waterwalk spell. When moving, they can treat such surfaces as if they were solid ground. This ability does not grant the weightless foot any sort of protection against dangerous or harmful substances, such as a pool of acid or lava, and so damage from contact still applies.

Acrobatics Mastery: Upon gaining 6th level, a Weightless Foot gains the ability to Take 10 on any Balance, Climb, Jump, Move Silently, or Tumble check, even when in dire situations.

Step Devoid of Thought: A weightless foot may take a standard action interspersed between their move action at 7th level. This includes a single melee attack, a single ranged attack, or etc as one would be granted from Spring attack & Shot on The Run. Once per day per 4 (Monk/Ninja + Weightless Foot Levels) a Weightless Foot May make a full attack interspersed between their movement.

Feather Walker: A Weightless Foot gains the ability to utilize their Ki to allow others walk on air. As the spell Air Walk of Caster Level equal to the Weightless Foot's Character Level, They may utilize this ability as a Standard action Once per day per 4 (Monk/Ninja + Weightless Foot Levels).

Leap of The Soaring Clouds: The DC to jump a vertical distance is no longer doubled. In addition, A Weightless Foot of 8th level may make a jump check of any distance, and only have it count as their move action, without regard to their normal speed.

Weightlessness: Upon reaching 9th level, a weightless foot's concentration enables them to become weightless, meaning, they do not trigger weight based traps, along with other effects based on weight. This does not provide a penalty to Bull Rush or Trip attempts, and the Weightless Foot May deactivate this ability at will.

Flight of Fleet Feet: A Weightless Foot of the pinnacle 10th level may imbue others with flight as well. As the Spell Fly, at Caster Level equal to the Weightless Foot's Character Level, Once per day per 4 (Monk/Ninja + Weightless Foot Levels).


Special Note: A monk whom takes levels in weightless foot may continue to progress as a monk without penalty.

Benefit: You gain your Wisdom Modifier as a dodge bonus to your AC against any creatures under the effect of Rage, Frenzy, or similar effect. You gain this even if you already gain your Wisdom Modifier to your AC.

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

New Feat: Anything Goes Combat

Prerequisites: Dex 13, Int 13 (if object larger than character, Str 13 as well)

Benefit: You are the master of the improvised weapon. You may treat any object, including weapons you are not proficient with, as simple melee weapons using the stats listed in this feat instead of the stats usually used for that object or weapon, although you may still use weapons you have proficiency with as per normal. Determine the size of the object or weapon and use the stats listed here. All weapons threaten a critical hit on a 20 and do double damage. No weapon gives you reach. As stated in the SRD, a light weapon is generally two size categories smaller than the wielder, a one-handed weapon one size smaller, and a two-handed weapon is an object of the same size category as the wielder. You must be able to lift the weight of the object within your maximum load.

Object SizeDamageExample Objects
Tiny1d2Glass Bottle, Candle Stick, Sturdy Shoe
Small1d4Vase, Lamp, Thick Book
Medium1d6Saddle, Chair, Crate
Large1d8Dresser, Horse, Large Painting
Huge1d10Fallen Tree, Carriage, Large Chandelier
Fine, Diminutive, Gargantuan, & Colossal objects cannot be effectively used as improvised weapons.
If the DM determines that there is no way the object in question could do regular damage it instead deals nonlethal damage. Additionally any object used as a weapon via this feat can deal nonlethal damage at your discretion without penalty.
Normal: You suffer a -4 penalty on attack rolls with any weapon you are non-proficient with, and similarly with objects not designed to be used for combat.
Special: You may not take weapon feats with objects not designed to be weapons. For instance you cannot take Weapon Focus (Beer Mug). A Fighter may select this as a bonus feat.

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

New Feat: Anything Goes Long

Prerequisites: Dex 13, Int 13, (if object larger than character, Str 13 as well)

Benefit: You are the master of the improvised missile. You may treat any object, including weapons you are not proficient with, as simple thrown weapons using the stats listed in this feat instead of the stats usually used for that object or weapon, although you may still use weapons you have proficiency with as per normal. Determine the size of the object or weapon and use the stats listed here. All weapons threaten a critical hit on a 20 and do double damage. No weapon gives you reach. As stated in the SRD, a light weapon is generally two size categories smaller than the wielder, a one-handed weapon one size smaller, and a two-handed weapon is an object of the same size category as the wielder. You must be able to lift the weight of the object within your maximum load. If the object falls into a light load for the character, it has range increment 20'. If the object falls into a medium load for the character, it has range increment 10'. If the object falls into a heavy load for the character, it has range increment 5'.

Object SizeDamageExample Objects
Tiny1d2Glass Bottle, Candle Stick, Sturdy Shoe
Small1d4Vase, Lamp, Thick Book
Medium1d6Saddle, Chair, Crate
Large1d8Dresser, Horse, Large Painting
Huge1d10Fallen Tree, Carriage, Large Chandelier
Fine, Diminutive, Gargantuan, & Colossal objects cannot be effectively used as improvised missiles.
If the DM determines that there is no way the object in question could do regular damage it instead deals nonlethal damage. Additionally any object used as a weapon via this feat can deal nonlethal damage at your discretion without penalty.
Normal: You suffer a -4 penalty on attack rolls with any weapon you are non-proficient with, and similarly with objects not designed to be used for combat.
Special: You may not take weapon feats with objects not designed to be weapons. For instance you cannot take Weapon Focus (Beer Mug). A Fighter may select this as a bonus feat.

If the attack misses, the use for the round is expended.

If the attack connects, before damage is rolled the attacker and defender make opposed Strength Checks (the attacker has a +4 bonus to this (the bonuses from Improved Trip and Improved Bull Rush are not used), the defender may use their Dexterity instead if they so choose, regular bonuses against being tripped or moved; like a dwarf's stability, count once against this attack).

If the attacker loses, the defender remains standing and the damage dealt is halved. If the attacker wins, the defender is knocked prone and damage is dealt normally, however any damage that would result from Power Attack is multiplied by 1-1/2.

A Fighter may select this as a bonus feat.

New Feat: Quick Sheathe

Prerequisites: Dex 15, Quick Draw, Base Attack Bonus +6

Benefit: You may sheathe your weapon as an immediate action.

Normal: Sheathing a weapon is a move-equivalent action.

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

New Feat: Scorpion's Sting ** This Feat is exclusive to Scorpion Clan Samurai who meet the prerequisites

Prerequisites: Dex 17, Improved Initiative, Death Blow, Lightning Reflexes, Prone Attack, Dodge, Mobility, Ground Defense, Combat Expertise, Improved Trip, Level Playing Field, Base Attack Bonus +16

Benefit: As a standard action, The user of this feat may make a special trip attempt.

If the trip fails, nothing happens, and the standard action is expended.

If they succeed in tripping their opponent they may then follow it with a special Coup de Grace action on the tripped opponent as they are falling.

Since the opponent is not actually helpless during the fall, they gain a bonus to their Fortitude Save equal to the Base Attack Bonus of the tripper. If the tripped person was flat-footed to the trip attack (such as by means of being feinted) then this bonus is only 1/2 of the Base Attack Bonus of the Tripper. For example, a Scorpion Samurai with Base Attack +18 performs this action, the tripped opponent receives +18 to their Fortitude Save. The same Samurai on their next turn tries it on another opponent whom they have feinted before the attempt, thus the second opponent's bonus to the save is only +9.

This is most commonly used with a scythe, as it can trip, has a high critical multiplier, and gives the image of a scorpion's tail stinging. This does not count as rolling a 20, so Vorpal and all such similar effects do not occur. Sneak Attack Damage does not apply to this special Coup de Grace

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

New Feat: Weapon Of Choice

Prerequisites: Fighter Level 20th, Weapon Supremacy with chosen weapon, Weapon Focus with the chosen weapon, Greater Weapon Focus with the chosen weapon, Weapon Specialization with the chosen weapon, Greater Weapon Specialization with the chosen weapon, Weapon Mastery with the chosen weapon’s type

You have become the outright master of your weapon.

You gain the following benefits while wielding your weapon of Choice:

1. +6 to all damage rolls with the weapon.
2. 1/round, Ignore an attack roll with the weapon yielding a Nat 1
3. 1/round, Automatically confirm a critical hit. (This ability does not mean you have critted again after the first, and it may only be utilized on a single critical, not double critical)
4. +1 AC (Stacking with Weapon Supremacy)
5. The Critical multiplier for the weapon is increased by 1. (i.e. x2-> x3, x3-> x4 etc.)

Note: Like Weapon Supremacy, you may only have this with one type of weapon.

PostSubject: New Equipment   Thu Feb 14, 2013 9:27 pm

New Equipment

New Vehicle: Bicycle

Medium Vehicle, Balance +0
Speed: 50'
Overall HP: 30 (hardness 10)
Overall AC: 5
Ram: 1d6
Face x Reach x Height: 5' x 5' x 5'
Weight: 40 lbs.


-To ride a bicycle it requires a Balance check DC 5 per round. Lowering the speed to 30' or below deceases the Balance Check by 5. Increasing speed raises the Balance DC by 5 for every 10' increase. Failure causes the rider to fall and be dealt 1d6 per 10' speed attempted to be traveled. The first 1d6 of which is non-lethal. Over long periods of time the Balance Check may be attributed over periods of hours.

-Slippery Terrain increases the DC needed to ride by 2. Light Terrain increases the DC by 5, while Heavy Terrain increases it by 10. I bicycle cannot be be driven over water, through a shallow or deep bog, loose sand or loose snow.

-It is possible to Jump a bike while riding a bike. It is treated as a quadruped when determining distance that can be jumped either vertically or horizontally. One uses their own Jump Check at a -2 penalty. Feats or abilities which alter DCs of Jump checks (such as Leap of The Heavens) do not apply. It requires at least one hand steering to jump with a bike.

-Moving Silently on a bike takes a -5 penalty.

-It requires a swift action to stop a bike which is moving between 10' and 40', and one slides 5' at the end of movement. It requires a move action to stop a bike which is moving between 45' and 70', and one slides 10' at the end of movement. It takes a standard action to stop a bike which is moving between 75' and 100' and one slides 20' at the end of movement. It requires a full-round action to stop a bike which is moving at more than 100' and one slides 40' at the end of movement. It is a free action to stop a bike moving at less than 10'.

-If struck while riding a bike one must make a Balance Check DC damage dealt, or fall.

-Mounting/Dismounting a bicycle is a move action, unless one makes a Ride Check DC 20.

-It requires two free hands to ride a bike without penalty. To Ride a bike while steering with one hand it increases the DC to 10. To ride without using one's hands causes the DC per round to become 15, and one cannot steer and must remain in a straight line. If this Balance check is failed, but it passes the normal check to ride per round, then the bike must be steered with two hands (or one if the check passes the DC to steer with one hand) for the round. If one's hands are full they have the option to drop the held object (such as a weapon or potion, but not a shield, because it takes a move action to remove a shield) or fall taking damage as normal. The dropped object takes damage as though it had fallen at the requisite speed.

-To increase speed it takes a Constitution Check DC 5 per 10' increased. In addition on later rounds the DC for the check increases by 1 per round. Failure causes the bike rider to drop to drop to 10' speed and become fatigued for the round. Over longer periods of time the Constitution Check may be attributed over 10 minute intervals.

Example: To move at 60' per round with no hands over rough slippery terrain, it requires a DC 32 (15 [No Hands] +5 [+10'] +10 [Rough Terrain] +2 [Slippery Terrain]) Balance check per round and a DC 5 Constitution Check per round, +1 per additional round.


Price: 50 gp. Masterwork bikes cost an additional 200 gp, weigh 30 lbs,  give a +2 bonus to Balance while riding a bike, and stop at one movement increment less (A swift action becomes a free action, a move to a swift, and so on.). Being crafted of different materials gives the same properties as would be attributed to armor of the same material, i.e increased hardness and weight difference.




New Magical Enhancement: Construct Striker

Price: +3 bonus
Property: Melee weapon
Caster Level: 16th
Aura: Strong; (DC 22) conjuration
Activation:-
Synergy Prerequisite: Ghost Strike

A Construct Striker weapon functions as a Ghost Strike weapon (MIC 35). In addition, sneak attacks and critical hits made with a construct striker weapon against a construct deal damage as though it were a living creature.

Prerequisites: Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Golem Strike, Spark of Life
Cost to create: Varies
