Cat Burglar


   
”Meow!”

 Cat Burglars originated in an ancient city with a group of Wizard students who had decent power but little patience.  Having flunked out of school, they had turned to
theft to support themselves.  While discussing how best to use their powers for gain
while drunk one night, one came up with the idea of changing form into a small cat
and appearing before the children of the richer households until one of them adopted
him.  He would then scout the place for the group, and they could have advance information where the valuables were and how best to get to them.  Their plan was
wildly successful and they became the leaders of a fairly decent Guild until
their secret got out. 

Eventually the Cat Burglars art spread to other cities after the original Guild was
disbanded.   Many have become adventurers, scouts, and people of a thiefly
persuasion.  There are now schools (legitimate or otherwise) where the art can be
learned at an early age (i.e. it was originally a Prestige Class but has now become a
full Class after many decades).

MAKING A CAT BURGLAR
You are best at being a party scout.  Small, sneaky, and difficult to see you blend in every where. Concentrate on Feats that take advantage of your high Dex  and small Size class.  Cat Burglars are best at not being seen and snitching information (among other things).
 Abilities: Dexterity and Charisma are of paramount importance to the
                            Cat Burglar.  Much of their skills and abilities key off these
                            two stats.  A decent Constitution and Wisdom wouldn’t hurt
                            either.
 Races: Humans and Halflings by far make up the bulk of Cat Burglars.
Some Gnomes and Elves practice the art as well but it isn’t at all common
among them.  Dwarf and Half Orc Cat Burglars are virtually unknown.
 Alignment: Cat Burglars may not be Lawful.  Most tends towards Chaos
and Neutrality.
 Starting Gold: Same as Rogue.
 Starting Age: Same as Rogue.

Class Skills
 The Cat Burglars class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int),
Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Escape Artist (Dex),
Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local, Nobility and Royalty) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock (Dex), Perform (Cha),
Profession (Int), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim
(Str), Tumble (Dex), and Use Magic Device (Cha)

Weapon Proficiencies: Cat Burglars are proficient with all Simple Weapons.
plus the Sap and the Garotte.  They are proficient with Light Armor but not with
Shields.

Trapfinding: This is identical to the Rogue ability on page 50 of the PHB.

Purr: Over time you have been taught a secret language you can only use in Kitty form.  It is composed of the sounds cats naturally make, and their body language.   Using it two Cat Burglars can have a conversation in front of people without their knowledge.  Other Cat Burglars can understand you regardless of form, so you can even point out a target by, say, rubbing against him in a certain manner while meowing in a specific tone. You also may communicate with other cats as though you had permanent use of the spell Speak With Animals (cats only) at will.  Using Purr to speak to cats is a Supernatural Ability.

Kitty Form (Su): At will as a standard action you may transform into a cat (or from a cat back to your normal form). At first level you can assume the form of a Small cat.  This is one of the larger breeds of housecat such as the Maine ****, or one of the very small feral cats such as the Fisher Cat.  In Kitty Form you gain Low Light Vision, Scent, a Primary Claw attack doing 1d3 plus Strength Bonus, and a Secondary Bite attack doing 1d4 plus half Strength Bonus.  If you make a Full Attack you get 2 Claw attacks and a Bite.  You also get a +4 Circumstance Bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks; and a +8 Circumstance Bonus on Balance and Jump checks.  In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth the Hide bonus raises to a +8.  Your stats in this form are +4 Dex, -4 Str .  When transforming all clothes and equipment that aren’t enchanted to remain (see below) fall off of you harmlessly and form a pile at your feet. While in Kitty Form you may use your Dexterity or your Strength bonus for Climb Checks, whichever is greater.  Since you do not have hands, certain skill checks (Craft, Disable Device, Disguise, Forgery, Open Lock, and Use Rope) will be all but impossible.  You can only speak as a cat in Kitty Form.  You may not cast spells with Verbal or Somatic components unless you have a Feat allowing you to do so.  If you are killed or knocked unconscious in Kitty Form you revert to humanoid form next round.
 
At third level you can assume the form of a Tiny Cat (which covers most breeds of housecats).  Your claws only do 1d2 and your bite 1d3.  Stats are +6 Dex, -6 Str.  Minimum Strength is 3.

At fifth level you may assume the form of a Diminutive Cat (i.e. kittens).  Your claws only do 1 point and your bite 1d2.  Stats are +8 Dex, -8 Str. Minimum Strength is 2.
 
At 7th level you gain Spell Resistance equal to 10 plus half your character level plus your Charisma bonus.  This spell resistance only applies to spells attempting to detect your alignment or whether you are a shapechanger.  If the spell can’t get through your spell resistance you show up as Neutral.  This only works while you are in Kitty Form. 

At 9th level gain a Luck Bonus to your Armor Class equal to your Charisma modifier while in Kitty Form.

At 11th level you get Improved Evasion (see PHB page 51), while in Kitty Form.
 
At 13th level you get Defensive Roll (see PHB page 51), while in Kitty Form.
 
At 15th level you gain Swift Paws.  If your opponent is flat footed  and you are in Kitty Form you may reroll a failed attack roll a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.  You must accept the results of the second roll.

At 17th level your Spell Resistance extends to Charms and Compulsions.
 
At 19th level your Spell Resistance extends to Polymorph and similar spells that would involuntarily change your form.
 
Sneak Attack(Ex):  See PHB, page 50.

Evasion (Ex):  See PHB, page 50.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex):  See PHB, page 50.

Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex):  See PHB, page 50.

Bonus Feat: At 12th, 16th, and 20th level the Cat Burglar gains a Bonus Feat.

Kitty Feats:  At 10th, 13th, 16th, an 19th level you may choose a Bonus Feat from the following list: A Cat Always Lands On His Feet, Acrobatic, Acrobatic Strike, Advanced Softee Paw Kung Fu, Agile, Alertness, Alley Cat, Anklebiter, ...And Persons Aren't Much Better, Black Cat, Blindfight, Brachiation, Close Quarters Fighting, Combat Acrobat, Combat Expertise, Combat Reflexes, Confound the Big Folk, Cunning Evasion, Danger Sense, Daring Fuzzball, Dash, Deadly Defense, Distracting Attack, Dive for Cover, Dodge, Dogs Are Retarded, Elusive Target, Fleet of Foot, Fwuffy, Giant Bane, Hear the Unseen, Hey! Hey Over Here!, Hissing Fury,  Improved Diversion, Improved Initiative, Improved Trip, I Must Shout My Love From The Fencepost Wall, I Wuv U, Jibba Jabba, Keen-Eared Scout, Kitty Wuvs Dwagon, Lazor Kitteh, Leap of the Heavens, Let Sleeping Kitties Lie, Lick Your Wounds, Lightning Reflexes, Lolcat, Lynx Paws, Melee Evasion, Mobility, Mommie's Little Heating Pad, Mouser, Nekochan, Pouncies, Purrsnuggles, Pwease, Quick Reconnoiter, Run, Self-Sufficient, Scramble, Shadow Striker, Softee Paw Kung Fu, Spookity Glowing Eyes of Doom, Spring Attack, Stealthy, Super Scamper Powers, Tomcat, Track, Underfoot Combat, Wolf Pack.

True Kitty:  At 20th level you become immune to any spell you formerly had Spell Resistance to, and gain the Shapechanger subtype. You are considered an animal for purposes of spells that would enhance animals in a positive way temporarily (such as Animal Growth).

PLAYING A CAT BURGLAR
 You are based on stealth and guile.  The entire goal is to learn to play a cat so well no one can tell the difference, not even a Druid.  Or other cats.  If the other players get captured you can likely escape because no one will be paying attention to you unless they know what you can do. You can feel free to go for help or sneak in, get the keys, and unlock their cell. You can even get yourself adopted by their enemies as a pet and learn their plans.  When the evil Blaufeld rip off your DM is using appears stroking his pet cat, you might BE that cat.  And weird old ladies will give you free munchies and cuddle you.  Lets not forget the weird old ladies y'all.
 Religion: Cat Burglars are partial to feline deities or to gods protecting thieves.  Many worship the Fluffy Pantheon.
 Other Classes: Cat Burglars prefer to band together with others of like mind such as the non lawful classes.  Monks, Paladins, most Clerics, Knights, and others that take themselves quite seriously do not get along with the Cat Burglars.  Either because they don’t like their aloof and capricious nature, or because of their long association with illegal activities in the past (and present)..
 Combat:  You’re a snuggler, not a fighter.  Let other classes worry about combat.  There are options if you wish to pursue them, but you will never be a frontline combat expert unless you take a Prestige Class devoted to making you such.
Advancement: Cat Burglars are infamous for multiclassing on a whim.  Usually because they wish to emphasize some ability cats are supposed to have (such as black cats ability to cause bad luck).  Most Prestige Classes they take will be specific to their class.

CAT BURGLARS IN THE WORLD
”Kitties done stole mah cheese!”
 Cat Burglars are not well liked.  They tend to foil a lot of schemes.  They tend to scheme a lot themselves too.  But telling them apart from your regular beloved pet kitty is kinda difficult.  Some actually enjoy being a cat more than a person and spend much of their life in kitty form.  After all they get free food and board, and don’t have to do any work (except possibly mousing). On the downside sometimes owners want them fixed or declawed, and then you have to bribe somebody...
 Daily Life:  If you’re a younger guild member you probably become an alley cat, and keep lookout on headquarters, or roam the streets trying to overhear info (and beg for free munchies).  Or you may be a little kitten in the rich neighborhoods looking to be adopted.  Or you’ve already been adopted, and are living the high life while probing the houses defenses.  Or maybe your there to spy instead of casing the joint.
Notables: Notables among the Cat Burglars include the infamous Pinky (Cat Burglar 3/Barbarian 3/Son of Pinky 10).  A Chaotic Neutral human, Pinky became so infamous that modern Cat Burglars who follow his path are called the Sons of Pinky (it is one of the few combat PrC’s designed for this class). Pinky was a dedicated fighter who ‘took care’ of any threats to his guild who were his adopted family ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=TwWYgQapkvo ).  He was also infamous as an entrepeneur, starting the first known Trained Attack Sheep dealership. The other is Mommy’s Little Angel (Cat Burglar 10/Good Kitty 6) who pioneered many of the techniques used to charm and persuade others.  Her race is ukown, and it is believed she was Chaotic Good. An expert on mind control she was the favored pet of the brutal dictator who oversaw her home city state and oversaw the revolution that toppled him from power ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=xmsV9R8FsDA ).
 Organizations: Most Thief’s Guilds (or for that matter any organization devoted to fighting or committing crime) have at least a few Cat Burglars if they can afford them.  Most are regional as the art has spread around the world, and most Cat Burglars are aloof and fey as the animals they portray.  Many Guilds are composed almost entirely of Cat Burglars.

NPC Reaction
Most NPC’s will immediately be somewhat superstitious if they have any idea what you are.  In some countries you can still be burned at the stake for being a practicing witch.  In others you will immediately be assumed to be a spy or thief.  It’s best you adopt a traveling disguise (“I’m an out of work actor”, "I'm a woodsman", I'm a professional pig strangler", etc).

CAT BURGLARS IN THE GAME
 Cat Burglars will likely supersede Rogues as the best infiltrator class.  They’re somewhat magical abilities make them different enough that the two should be able to co exist though.  Rogues are better fighters.
 Adaptation: This is ….a difficult class to adapt to a campaign.  It’s meant purely for humorous campaigns, and as such will not fit in elsewhere.  Except possibly a super spy, James Bondish type deal, where everyone’s uncertain what’s really going on till the end, and anyone can be a double agent.
 Encounters: Most of the time NPC encounters with Cat Burglars will go unnoticed as the PC’s will simply think they are feral cats or housepets.  Or they might occasionally fall victim to theft or manipulation by them.  If the Cat Burglars do it right the PC’s may never even realize they were there.



Epic Cat Burglar

You are among the worlds most famous cats.  Shrines are devoted to your magnificence.  Well in your mind maybe..

Hit Die: d6

Skill Points at each Additional level: 8 + Int modifier

Sneak Attack: The Epic Cat Burglar gains an additional +1d6 Sneak Attack at Level 22, and every four levels there after (i.e. level 26, level 30, etc.).

Kitty Form: Your Spell Resistance gained from Kitty Form continues to increase by +1 for every two levels.

Bonus Feats: The Epic Cat Burglar gains an additional Bonus Feat every 4th level after level 20 (i.e. level 24, level 28, etc).


TIBBIT RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1: Replace Kitty Form with Tibbits Rule!


 Tibbit's Rule! (Su): Tibbits natural abilities mesh well with the Cat Burglars powers.  A Tibbit gains all the Abilities of Kitty Form (since they are actually better than his racial abilities) with one exception: His equipment molds to fit his Kitty Form as is mentioned in the Tibbit's entry(the one advantage Tibbit's natural powers have over the Cat Burglars). Please note this means the Tibbit can change into and out of Kitty Form at will, and doesn't have to wait an hour. Tibbit's also gain a Bonus Kitty Feat at 1st level. In campaigns where Cat Burglar is available Tibbit's may choose it as their Favored Class. Tibbit's also gain the same stat adjustments as other Small races (see below).

 


CATFOLK RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1: Replace Kitty Form with Perfect Kitty.

  Perfect Kitty (Su): When in Kitty Form you do not gain the usual Circumstance Bonus to Move Silently chacks, and may choose one of the following skills instead: Bluff, Search, Sense Motive, or Survival.  In campaigns where Cat Burglar is available Catfolk may choose it as their Favored Class.


CAT HENGEYOKAI RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1: Replace Kitty Form with Neko Form.

  Neko Form (Su): Cat Hengeyokai's natural powers and class abilities mesh well. Neko Form gives them all the abilities of Kitty Form, and they may assume Hybrid Form at will as well. Their Cat Burglar Level is considered to be 1 higher than normal for purposes of qualifying for Kitty Feats (i.e. a 4th level Cat Burglar Hengeyokai is considered 5th level for purposes of qualifying for Feats only).



AWAKENED CAT RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1, 3, 5: Replace Kitty Form with Kitty Form (Feats)

 Kitty Form (Su): Instead of variant sized Kitty Forms at levels 1, 3 and 5 the Awakened Cat gets a permanent inherent +1 Bonus to Dexterity or Charisma.  It also immediately qualifies for any PrC or Feat requiring Kitty Form (Small, Tiny, or Diminutive).  In campaigns where Cat Burglar is available Catfolk may choose it as their Favored Class. Awakened Cats also gain a Bonus Kitty Feat at 1st level.



SMALL RACE RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1: Replace Kitty Form with an alternate Kitty Form.

  Kitty Form (Su): You gain all the normal bonuses from Kitty Form except for the stat changes. In Small Kitty Form your stats do not change. In Tiny Kitty Form you gain +4 Dex, -4 Str.  In Diminutive Kitty Form you gain +6 Dex, -6 Str.



TINY RACE RACIAL SUBSTITUTION LEVELS
 Level 1: Replace Kitty Form with an alternate Kitty Form.

  Kitty Form (Su): You gain all the normal bonuses from Kitty Form except for the stat changes. In Small Kitty Form you gain +2 Str. In Tiny Kitty Form your stats do not change.  In Diminutive Kitty Form you gain +4 Dex, -4 Str.

Kitty Feats

A Cat Alway Lands On His Feet
After falling out of trees a lot you have ensured it will not happen again.
 Prerequisites: Jump 4 Ranks, Kitty Form.
 Benefits: As a supernatural ability you may cast the spell Feather Fall 3 times per day.  Your caster level is equal to half your Cat Burglar Level.

Advanced Softee Paw Kung Fu
You may now refer to all lesser mortals you meet by the term 'grasshopper'.
 Prerequisites: Softee Paw Kung Fu
 Benefits: You may use your Charisma modifier instead of your Wisdom modifier for the Monk's AC Bonus and any abilities that normally use Wisdom (Stunning Fist, Quivering Palm) now use Cha for the Save DC.

Alley Cat
Your brother Rogues have taught you where to bite so it hurts the most…….
 Prerequisites: +2 BAB, Kitty Form
 Benefits: You gain Sneak Attack +1d6. This Feat may be taken multiple times, increasing your Sneak Attack damage by +1d6 each time.  This stacks with any Sneak Attack damage you may have from class levels in Cat Burglar.  The extra Sneak Attack Dice from this Feat are only available while in Kitty Form.

Always Underfoot
Somehow you always seem to be underfoot..
 Prerequisites: Improved Trip, Bluff 4 Ranks
 Benefits: You do not suffer size penalties to trip attacks.  While in Kitty Form you may attempt to trip people and make it look accidental.  Whenever you make a trip attack your victim can make a Sense Motive roll against your Bluff (you get a +4 Circumstance bonus to the roll).  If he fails, he honestly believed 'kitty just wanted some attention'.  You can only do this once per encounter (otherwise your pushing your luck).


...And Persons Aren't Much Better
Guard persons too..
 Prerequisites: Dogs Are Retarded
 Benefits: Your invisibility now works against all opponents.

Anklebiter
You are well adjusted to attacking from below
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form (Tiny)
 Benefits: Normally with a Reach of 0 you would provoke an attack of opportunity when entering someone else's square.  But not in this case.  You're a special kitty who breaks that rule due to training.  You do not provoke an AoO from entering an opponents square.

Bad Cattitude
Of course his efforts have failed.  He's a Paladin, I'm a kitty.  It was foreordained.
 Prerequisites: Cat Burglar Level 12, Cattitude
 Benefits: You may reroll a Saving Throw a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier instead of just once.  You only get one reroll attempt per save.

Black Cat
You have studied hard to gain the Black Cat’s mythical ability of bad Luck.
 Prerequisites: Hexblade’s Curse, Kitty Form.
 Benefits: Your Hexblade and Cat Burglar levels stack for purposes of determining your size in Kitty Form. For example a 1st level hexblade/2nd level Cat Burglar would be able to become a Tiny cat in Kitty Form.

Your Hexblade and Cat Burglar levels also stack for purposes of determining the Save DC or your Hexblade’s Curse ability and the number of times per day it may be used.

Bouncies
Your good at jumping, even  for a cat.
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form, Jump 4 Ranks.
 Benefits: You may cast the spell Jump 3 times per day as a Supernatural ability.  This is only available in Kitty Form, and your caster level is equal to half your Cat Burglar levels.

Cattitude
I reject your reality, and substitute my own!
 Prerequisites: Cat Burglar Level 6
 Benefits: Once per day you may reroll one Saving Throw in Kitty Form.


Cheetah Rage
You run with the fury of the wind.  Or some crap like that.
 Prerequisites: Rage, Kitty Form.
 Benefits: When using your Rage while in Kitty Form, your base land speed is +20 if you are unarmored.

Daring Fuzzball
You protect the innocent.  Especially if the innocent are hawt and like the kittehs.
 Prerequisites: Grace +1, Kitty Form.
 Benefits: Your Swashbuckler and Cat Burglar levels stack for determining your size in Kitty Form.  For example a 1st level Swashbuckler/2nd level Cat Burglar would be able to become a Tiny Cat in Kitty Form.

Your Swashbuckler and Cat Burglar levels also stack for purposes of determining your competence bonus to Reflex Saves from the Grace Class Feature, and from the Swashbuckler's Dodge Bonus to AC.

Dogs Are Retarded...
Guard dogs are useless against you.
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form, Move Silently 4 Ranks
 Benefits: You may cast Invisibility 3 times per day as a Supernatural ability, however it only works on opponents with an intelligence of 2 or less.  Caster level is equal to half your Cat Burglar level.

Eat My Dander
You may release a cloud of cat hair at will....
 Prerequisites: Cat Burglar Level 6
 Benefits: Once per day as a Supernatural ability while in Kitty Form you may release a 10 cloud of cat dander centered on your square.  All non feline entities in this area must make a Fortitude Save (DC is 10 plus half your hit dice plus your Constitution modifier) or be Sickened for 1 round per point of your Charisma modifier.

Fwuffy
Some people think it's because your fur is extra foofy....
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form
 Benefits: You may cast the spell Endure Elements once per day as a Supernatural ability while in Kitty Form.  However it only protects against cold, not heat.  Caster Level is considered to be half your Cat Burglar level.

HAHAHAHA!!
Your dander cloud is particularly effective when used as part of a grapple..
 Prerequisites: Cat Burglar Level 12, Eat My Dander
 Benefits: You may use your Dander attack twice per day.  It may be used in place of doing damage in a grapple check.  The opponent you are grappling is Nauseated if he fails his Save, instead of Sickened. All others in the area are Sickened as normal.

Hep Meeee!
You may summon your furry brethren in time of need.
 Prerequisites: Cat Burglar Level 6
 Benefits: Once per day in Kitty Form you may let out a loud meow for help, summoning a swarm of kitties to help you.  Effectively you cast Summon Swarm (use the stats for a Rat Swarm without the diseased attack).  You may also direct the Swarm as you wish unlike the spell.  Caster level is equal to half your Cat Burglar levels. This is a Supernatural ability.

Hep Meee! II: The Sequel
Your friends from before have grown up now.
 Prerequisites:Hep Meeee!, Cat Burglar Level 12
 Benefits: Once per day you can summon 1d3 Celestial Dire Lions.  This is the same as Summon Monster VII, except it's a Supernatural ability, and can only be used in Kitty Form.  Caster level is equal to half Cat Burglar levels.

Hey! Hey Over Here!!
Look at the funny kitty!
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form, Perform (Kitty) 4 Ranks
 Benefits: By indulging in silly catlike tomfoolery such as chasing balls, or batting at moths you may captivate people.  Effectively you may cast Hypnotism 3 times per day as a Supernatural ability while in Kitty Form.  Caster level is half your Cat Burglar Level.

Hissing Fury
You have practiced the intimidating kitty hiss into an art form.
 Prerequisites: Kitty Form
 Benefits: You may cast the spell Cause Fear 3 times per day as a Supernatural ability.  This is only available in Kitty Form, and your caster level is equal to half your Cat Burglar levels.

I Got Looks and Brains

Detect Munchies
Shamelessly copied from Draco Dei with his permission

Level: Sor/Wiz 1

Casting Time: 1 Standard Action
Range: 60'
Area: Quarter circle emanating from you to the extreme of the range
Duration: Concentration, up to 10 minutes/level
You detect substances you can eat or drink. This will detect living creatures but only if you have eaten such a creature before and could reasonably expect to defeat it if you faced in a battle to the death with yourself naked, weaponless and without magic or psionics, fleshed undead are detected as spoiled meat if you have ever eaten a member of that species. Thus you could theoretically detect ghouls made from humans if you have ever eaten human flesh, but skeletons or ghosts could not be detected. The amount of information revealed depends on how long you study a particular area, subject or place:
1st round: Presences or absence of food.
2nd round: Number clumps of food and tastiness of the one you like best.
3rd round: The volume and tastiness of each piece of food in area. Also gives indication if any of them are poisoned with ingested or contact poison. This is an indication for the area as a whole and not for any individual piece of food in it.
Tastiness levels:
Tastiness|   Aura Strength
Spoiled|   Dim
Unpalatable|   Faint
Average|   Moderate
Tasty   |Strong
Gourmet|   Extreme
4th round: The type of each piece of food. Which pieces of food, if any, are poisoned.
5th and later rounds: May make one attempt per poisoned food item to identify the poison used (See Detect Poison). You may only make one attempt per round and only one attempt for each poisoned item. Note that if you have the Alchemy skill then each attempt actually might consist of two rolls.
Note: Like all the other detect spells this one can penetrate barrier but has its limits. If the caster has been unable to obtain food for at least 2 days then double the thicknesses, or if they are within 5 days of starving to death then instead triple them





Spell originally by Norr

You are the cutest thing alive. All will fall before you.
Puss-in-boots got nothing on you. As you finish casting this spell up to 1 creature per three caster levels within range must make a willpower save or succumb to your cuteness. Upon a failed save the targets brain suffers a terminal shut-down from cuteness overdose. The target immediately dies with a look of pure bliss on its face.

Well crap, I didn't get to work on anything I wanted to this weekend.  Here's a first PrC to peruse whilst I tweak the stuff this week.


SON OF PINKY


   
"REEEOOOWWR!!" *munch*

The Sons of Pinky are the enforcers and guardians of the Cat Burglars Guilds.  When ankles need bitten they get called.  When overly inquisitive locals need scared off, they do the scaring.  When someone needs their butt handed to them, they do the handing.

BECOMING A SON OF PINKY
Generally when barbaric tribesman are relocated to cities they find a great deal of prejudice against them, forcing them to be either physical laborers, mercenaries, or take up a dishonest living.  The Cat Burglar Guilds get less of them than the Thieve's Guilds do, but they do get them.  They are quickly adopted into the ranks of the Sons of Pinky in order to vent their repressed furies.

Ragin' Kitty Feats (Ex): At 1st, 4th, and 8th level the Son of Pinky gets a Bonus Feat from the following list: Cheetah Rage, Cleave, Clever Wrestling, Close Quarters Fighting, Daunting Presence, Extend Rage, Extra Rage, Flay, Glom, Great Cleave, Greater Kiai Shout, Improved Critical, Improved Initiative, Improved Multiattack, Improved Natural Attack, Improved Toughness, Instantaneous Rage, Intimidating Rage, Intimidating Strike, Kiai Shout, Leap Attack, Leopard Rage, Lion Rage, Lunging Strike, Mad Foam Rager, Multiattack, Power Attack, Power Critical, Prone Attack, Stop Hitting Yourself, Swarmfighting, Tiger Rage

Magical Kitty (Su): At 2nd level your Natural Weapons are considered magical for purposes of overcoming Damage Reduction.

Strong Kitty (Ex): At 3rd level you gain +2 Strength while in Kitty Form, offsetting the Strength penalty you normally take.  For example in Small Kitty Form you are now -2 Str, in Tiny Kitty Form you are -4 Str, and in Diminutive Kitty Form you are -6.

This increases to +4 at 6th level.  You take no Str penalty in Small Kitty Form, -2 Str in Tiny Kitty Form, and -4 Str in Diminutive Kitty Form.

At 9th level it increases to +6, meaning you actually gain +2 Strength in Small Kitty Form, take no penalty in Tiny Kitty Form, and -2 Str in Diminutive Kitty Form.

Pouncies (Ex): At fifth level you get Pouncies as a Bonus Feat whether you meet the prerequisites or not.

Rippin' Fury (Ex): At 7th level you get the Improved Grab ability.  If you succeed with a  claw attack in Kitty Form you may initiate a Grapple check as a Free Action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  If successful you may now Rake with your back claws each round you maintain the Grapple as well as using your bite!  The Rake Attack is a secondary Natural Weapon doing the same damage as your claws, and may be used when you use your Pouncies Feat as well.

Little Tiger (Su): When using your Rage ability you gain an additional +4 Strength and do not take an Armor Class penalty.
 
PLAYING A SON OF PINKY
 You are truly one angry little furball.  You moved to the city hoping to get magic training to be a better warrior and the only people willing to speak to you are these freaky little cat people.  But they've turned out to be a decent sort, and you've sort of adopted them as your new tribe.  And you get lots of free munchies from the neighborhood vendors while in cat form as you've run off bad guys before.  Now if only people would stop laughing at you.  You wouldnt cause nearly as much damage if everyone would just kindly realize exactly who they were dealing with...
 Combat: As a Son of Pinky you are pretty straightforward.  You run up to trouble and start munching.  Eventually as you get better at grappling you grab hold before the munching attack and fang away.  Remember with the Tomcat Feat you take no Size Class Penalty for Grapple Checks, so specializing in Grapples is usually a great surprise tactic against foes.  They never see it coming from a teensy lil kitty. 
 Advancement: Most Sons of Pinky are pretty content as they are.  They get room and board in return for beating people up, or going on the occasional road trip to beat monsters up.  Many of them take pride in humiliating monstrous opponents while in Kitty Form.
Resources: Cat Burglars Guilds have pretty decent resources and you can occasionally ask them for some items specifically helpful to you, such as Collar Armor.


SONS OF PINKY IN THE WORLD
"Will someone get this ******* cat off my leg!"
Many Sons of Pinky know they are the 'big kitty on the block' so to speak, and it makes some a bit uppity.  Neighbors will either love them or hate them depending on how they relate to them personally.  Cause the Sons of Pinky have likely either saved their butt at some point, or pooped in their gardens, one of the two.
 Daily Life: You  spend much of your time lounging about the guilds various headquarters fuming or practicing for the daily hissing fit.  Because it's inevitable someone is gonna do something stupid, and when they do you will get to bite them.  Oh the glorious biting....  You are also sometimes loaned as a bodyguard.
 Notables: Notables among the Sons of Pinky include Precious, Destroyer of Garden Gnomes (Human male, NE, Cat Burglar 1/Barbarian 5/Son of Pinky 6).  A lowborn human barbarian known for despoiling gardens, picnics, and generally being a sonofabitch.  Has single-handedly given the Sons of Pinky a bad name in most areas by despoiling all in his path.  Also noteworthy is Wubbins (Gnome Female, CG, Cat Burglar 4/Barbarian 2/Son of Pinky 6).  She has helped undo much of the damage Precious has done to the guilds reputation, and has even succeeded in ousting him from his position.  Spends much of her time looking after the cities elderly and vulnerable when not at work.  Considered quite odd for a gnome, it may be she has become such because of her having to put up with Precious.

 Organizations: The Sons of Pinky are found in the Cat Burglar guilds for the most part.  Some wind up as scouts in the military or for mercs as well.

NPC Reaction
Most NPC's have had only one type of encounter with a Son of Pinky.  A sudden, brutal attack at knee level.  You therefore tend to make people nervous if they know what you are.  Other barbarians may laugh at you, but that ends quickly after the first time you claw them in their manhood.

SONS OF PINKY IN THE GAME
The Sons are a good Prestige Class for Cat Burglars who actually want to fight.  Especially those who like to charge to get up close and personal. 
 Adaptation: As with the Cat Burglar this is really only a good fit for a humorous or truly bizarre campaign.
 Encounters: Generally the PC's will encounter a Son of Pinky if they try to raid a Cat Burglar hideout or if they get too close asking questions.  Or if they try kicking one out of the way cause they think he's just a stray alley cat (big mistake).

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's have been hired to guard a nobleman's house.  A small cat enters the garden at night while they're on watch and begins destroying the garden gnomes.  The small cat looks at them disapprovingly.  For some reason they feel nervous...

TIBBIT SKIRMISHER


   
"Tibbit's Rule!"

 Tibbit Skirmishers are packs of backup fighters who hound and confuse their quarry while the Sons of Pinky finish them off.

BECOMING A TIBBIT SKIRMISHER
Normally Tibbits multiclass as a Scout for a few levels before becoming a Tibbit Skirmisher.  The Cat Burglar Guilds provice the necessary training.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Race: Tibbit
   Class Features:  Tibbit's Rule!, Skirmish +1d6
   Feats:  Combat Expertise, Improved Trip, Mouser


Class Skills
 The Tibbit Skirmisher's  class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local)(Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Cha), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex)
Skills Points at Each  Level :  6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +0    Skirmisher Feat
2. +1    +0     +3     +0    Dodger (+2)
3. +2    +1     +3     +1    Comin' Thru!
4. +3    +1     +4     +1    Skirmisher Feat
5. +3    +1     +4     +1    Dodger (+4)
6. +4    +2     +5     +2    Mine!!
7. +5    +2     +5     +2    Skirmisher Feat
8. +6    +2     +6     +2    Dodger (+6)
9. +6    +3     +6     +3    Scratch 'Em While  Their Down
10.+7    +3     +7     +3    Master Skirmisher


Weapon Proficiencies: Tibbit Skirmishers gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Dodger (Ex): At 1st level you gain a +2 Dodge Bonus to Armor Class while in Kitty Form.  This stacks with all other Dodge bonuses such as the Dodge Feat.  It increases to +4 at level 4, and to +6 at level 8.

Skirmisher Feats (Ex): At 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 10th level the Tibbit Skirmisher gets a Bonus Feat from the following list: Acrobatic Strike, Adaptable Flanker, Alley Cat, Always Underfoot, Clever Wrestling, Close Quarters Fighting, Combat Expertise, Combat Panache, Confound The Big Folk, Cunning Evasion, Defensive Strike, Deadly Defense, Deft Opportunist, Deft Strike, Distracting Attack, Elusive Target, Eyes in the Back of Your Head, Expeditious Dodge, Expert Tactician, Fleet of Foot, Giantbane, Goad, Greater Kiai Shout, Hamstring, Hindering Opportunist, Improved Feint, Improved Combat Expertise, Improved Disarm, Improved Skirmish, Intimidating Strike, Kiai Shout, Lunging Strike, Melee Evasion, Shadow Striker, Stalwart Defense, Swarmfighting, Telling Blow, Tumbling Feint, Underfoot Combat, Vexing Flanker, Wolf Pack.

Comin' Thru! (Ex): When making a charge attack in Kitty Form you may make a Trip attack against everyone whose space you enter.  If a Trip attack fails you must stop where you are.  You receive the benefits of your Improved Trip  and Always Underfoot Feats for each Trip attempt. You cannot make more than 3 Trip attempts per charge, and only one trip attempt per creature.

Mine!! (Ex): This ability works exactly like Spring Attack except you make a Disarm attempt instead of an attack action. When using Mine!! you also benefit from any feat or ability that improves disarm attempts, such as Improved Disarm. If you succeed at your Disarm attempt, you are now holding the target item in your mouth (or hand if not in Kitty Form).

Scratch 'Em While Their Down (Ex): When you attack a prone character you get a competence bonus to your to hit and damage rolls equal to your Charisma bonus.

Master SKirmisher (Su):  At 10th level the Tibbit Skirmisher masters the art of the scamper.  When he performs an attack while using his Skirmish ability and his opponent is Denied his Dex Bonus to AC, he automatically gets a Trip attempt as a Free Action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  There is no opposed roll and the Trip is automatically successful.



PLAYING A TIBBIT SKIRMISHER
Design yourself around a specific Feat tree in order to specialize in some area, especially if there are several people in the group playing Skirmishers.   Maybe you make people easier to flank, or easier to hit, or are distracting. 
 Combat: You are designed to be an annoyance.  You are a tactical fighter who helps set up things for your buddies.  You aren't a frontline combatant.  You do your best to avoid getting hit while tripping up your enemies, causing them to be flanked, or sowing confusion.
 Advancement: Tibbit Skirmishers can specialize in one of several paths depending on what Feats they take.  Try to see what your party will need the most and go for that area of expertise.
Resources: The Cat Burglar Guilds of course.  The greatest resource in the world :D

TIBBIT SKIRMISHERS IN THE WORLD
_______ Cats!  Knocked my feet out from under me and ran of with my jewelry! There outta be a law against em!"
 You are the most lovable cat in the world until it's business time.  Then you are the least lovable cat in the world.  But at least you get to have fun.
 Daily Life: You spend your day patrolling the Guilds bases, or escorting teams who go out on missions. It's your job to make sure things go smoothly when the fur starts to fly.
 Notables: Current notable Tibbit Skirmishers include The Magnificent Farting Bastard (Tibbbit, CN, Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Tibbit SKirmisher 6).  No one exemplifies the ruthlessly mocking nature of this class more than he has, and he stands out above all other Tibbit Skirmishers as the most famous (and most hated) of his kind.  Even Kender are more loved than he.  Known only by his pseudonym, even by his Guild.
 Organizations: Every Cat Burglar Guild has Tibbit Skirmishers.  Without exception.  One or two of the most dreaded Guilds is composed primarily of members of this prestige class.

NPC Reaction
 People hate Tibbit Skirmishers.  You trip them up, steal their stuff, and disappear before they can get to you.  No one likes a winner baby.  Expecially when they win as good as you do.

TIBBIT SKIRMISHER IN THE GAME
 Tibbit Skirmishers are support, and are best used to round out the party if the major roles are already taken.
 Adaptation: Much like the Cat Burglar class, this is probably a humorous setting only.
 Encounters: PC's will probably encounter Tibbit Skirmishers if they ever raid a Cat Burglar Guild.  Once the alarm is sounded Skirmishers will delay them till the heavy hitters can get there, and then act as backup when the Sons of Pinky charge to the fore.

Sample Encounter
Give an example of how one might encounter a member of this PrC.
EL 12: You awaken in the night as a foul stench descends upon you.  You see a small cat perched on your face.  He has apparently broken wind.  He calls you several names best left unprinted and bounds out the open window.  Getting up you stumble about in confusion and find that your armor smells like cat pee.  Eventually finding some decent clothes you run outside but he is gone.  Arriving back at your room you realize so is your money...

BEAR WRASSLER


   
"Come down outta that tree and take it like a man Smokey!"

 Not all Cat Burglars Guilds are purely urban.  Some disguise themselves as traveling actors or circuses.  The Bear Wrassler is a sideshow attraction at the Cat Burglar carnivals which involve many trained (awakened) animals, or shapeshifters.  He's also cheap muscle for the Guild.

Most Cat Burglars require a few levels of Barbarian to take this class.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities: Kitty Form, Rage
   Feats:  Tomcat, Improved Grapple
   Skills:  Perform (Wrasslin) 6 Ranks


Bear Wrassler Skills
 The Bear Wrassler's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Climb (Str), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Geography) (Int), Knowledge (Nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Perform (Cha), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex)

Wrasslin Feats: A Bear Wrassler gets a Bonus Feat from the following List at 2nd, 5th, 7th, and 9th levels: Baatorian Basher, Calico Bomb, Cheetah Rage, Clever Wrestling, Close-Quarters Fighting, Combat Expertise, Defensive Throw, Dropping the Big Yak, Eberronian Pomegranate Masacree, Faerunian Eel Lock, Fold/Spindle/Mutilate, Glom, Improved Initiative, Improved Trip, Leopard Rage, Lion Rage, Mexican Hairless Jamboree, No One Escapes the Monkey Lock, Prone Attack, Siamese Thunder Buster, Stop Hitting Yourself, Tabby Twister, The Dutch Oven Hold, The Flying Snuggle Attack, The Plastic Surgery Face Hold, The Pudding Hold, Tiger Rage, Touch of the Yeti

Mah Momma Knew How To  Snuggle(Ex): You are taught the many small secret holds of your profession.  The Ankle Cracker, the Stomach Lock, the Grinding Wishbone.  Call the attack what you will, it's darned effective.  Whenever you successfully Pin an opponent in a grapple, you do +1d10 damage per round the Pin is maintained..  If you roll a 20 on the opposed Grapple check your opponent is also Sickened for 1d4 rounds. This attack can only be made against living creatures who have a discernable anatomy.

Mah Daddy Was The MAN!(Ex): You are taught the secret throws and takedowns of your profession.  The Grovenian Troutbuster, the Tiger Suplex, the Halfback Brain Squishie.  Whatever it is, and however you do it, after the maneuver is performed both you and your opponent are prone, and he's the worse for wear.  To do this you must make a successful Grapple check. They take 2d6 damage plus your Strength modifier, and you are both prone. If you succeed by 10 or more on the grapple check he is also Stunned 1d3 rounds and you still maintain the Grapple after the attack is made.

Mah Grandaddy Was Part Chupacabra (Su): You add your Charisma modifier to all grapple checks, and to all damage rolls made by grapple attacks.

PLAYING A BEAR WRASSLER
 Make sure to specialize in grappling as it's what you'll be doing (and god knows when that bear your wrasslin' will decide to get uppity).  At the appropriate level you may wish to take the Leadership Feat so you can have an Awakened Bear Cohort.....Or maybe you'll wish to take a few Charisma based skills and the Jibba Jabba Feat to do the prematch wrasslin' interview in style..
 Combat: Your a grapple monkey pure and simple.  You find a target, latch on, and do some damage.  If you have the Bear Cohort you even get to double team...
 Advancement: Your goal is to someday open your own carnival or Bear Wrasslin' school most likely.  After all there's no retirement plan in your job..
Resources: You rely on the carnival for resources (meager as they are) or steal your own.  When traveling you can rely on your brother Bear Wrasslers to put you up for the night if you encounter them.

BEAR WRASSLERS IN THE WORLD
"OMG that cats wrasslin' a bear! OMG he's leaped off the stage! OMG he's wrasslin' Bob! OMG He's taken Bob's coinpurse!"
 Most people believe your a magical carnival animal that performs  tricks and wrestles larger creatures for their amusement.  The unlucky few who owe your guild money know what the backside of your paw looks like though.
 Daily Life: You spend your days performing tricks for the rubes, and your nighte beating the more unfortunate ones senseless.
 Notables: Molly aka "Fuzzy Thunder" (CG Gnome, Female, Cat Burglar 3/Barbarian 3/Bear Wrassler 6) is a newcomer on the circuit.  She has wowed many an audience of late, and may compete in the World Championship Kittie Wrasslin circuit this year. 
 Organizations: Bear Wrasslers are rarely more organized than simple wandering carnivals.  They recognize each other as brothers though, and will help each other out in time of need.

NPC Reaction
 Most people aren't too keen on being beaten up by a cat when they refuse to pay the money they owe.  On the other hand you're loved by the crowds.  You may even have a small measure of fame. 
BEAR WRASSLERS IN THE GAME
 Your prolly gonna give Awakened Cats (and Bears) and carnivals a bad name.  Other than that you shouldn't be too disruptive to add to a campaign.
 Adaptation: Personally I think this class is a little more out there than the others.  This is definitely a humor campaign only.
 Encounters: Usually PC's will only encounter members of this class if they see their act, or the carnival has some 'bidness' with them...

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's are stunned watching a small cat apparently wrestling a black bear into submission.  They're even more stunned when a carny hands the party rogue a paper saying "Pay Big John the money you owe him, or tonight the cat comes for you".

THE GRASSHOPPER SOCIETY


   
Yum Fu: "You will try to snatch the grasshopper from my paw."
Noogums: "But..But there is no grasshopper in your paw.  Are you sure you haven't been drinking?"
Yum Fu: "I SAID SNATCH TEH FUCKING GRASSHOPPER!"
Noogums: "You know when I'm no longer a disciple I won't have to humor your madnesses anymore.  You know that right?"

The Grasshopper Society are a group of Monks devoted  to the study of Chaos that became enamored of the Cats lifestyle, and seeking to emulate it.  Naturally they hunted down the Cat Burglars to learn their secrets...

BECOMING A GRASSHOPPER
Normally your a Chaos Monk who becomes a Cat Burglar.  Being a loon helps too...  Since the Chaos Monk is 3.0 and hasn't been revised you may simply wish to treat it as a regular Monk that must be Chaotic instead of Lawful (which is what I will be doing for purposes of this class).

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form, Flurry of Blows, Ki Strike (Magic)
   Feats: Softee Paw Kung Fu, Advanced Softee Paw Kung Fu
   Alignment: Must be Chaotic.

Class Skills
 The Grasshopper's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Arcana, Local, Religion)(Int), Listen (Wis) Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot(Wis), and Tumble (Dex).
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +2    Scratchum, Softee Paw Mastery
2. +1    +0     +3     +3    Fuzzy Mind
3. +2    +1     +3     +3    Missed Me
4. +3    +1     +4     +4    Greater Flurry
5. +3    +1     +4     +4    Fuzzy Mind
6. +4    +2     +5     +5    Missed Me Again
7. +5    +2     +5     +5    Fuzzy Mind
8. +6    +2     +6     +6    Supah Flurry
9. +6    +3     +6     +6    Your Kung Fu Is Weak
10.+7    +3     +7     +7    Fuzzy Master


Weapon Proficiencies: A member of the Grasshopper Society gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Softee Paw Mastery (Su): You may substitute your Cha modifier for your Str modifier for to hit rolls and damage rolls.  Your Monk and Grasshopper levels stack for purposes of determining your AC Bonus and Unarmed Strike damage.

Fuzzy Mind (Ex): Do to your exhaustive experimentation with "Catnip" and other substances you exist in a permanent semi-inebriated state.  At 2nd level you may add your Charisma Bonus to all Saving Throws instead of the usual ability modifier (if Charisma is higher).

At 5th level you are so hammered that Ranged attacks have a 20% chance of missing you because you stumble out of the way at the last second.

At 7th level you are Immune to Fear and Morale effects.

Scratchum (Ex): When doing an unarmed strike in Kitty Form you hit with your claws.  Unarmed Strike damage in your Kitty Form is Slashing instead of Bludgeoning.
 
Missed Me (Ex): Once per day you may add your Base Reflex Save as a Dodge Bonus to your Armor Class for 1 Round. You must announce you are using this ability at the start of the round and it takes effect for that full round, even if you would normally be flat footed.

Greater Flurry (Ex):  This is identical to the Monk ability listed on page 40 of the PHB.

Missed Me Again(Ex): You may use your Missed Me ability a number of times per day equal to your Charisma Bonus.

Supah Flurry (Ex): You gain an additional 2 attacks per round at your lowest attack bonus when using your Flurry of Blows.

Your Kung Fu Is Weak (Ex): You never lose your Dex Bonus to Armor Class (even while flat-footed), and may not be flanked.  If your opponent uses the Power Attack Feat against you he takes an additional -2 to hit.

Fuzzy Master (Su): 3 times per day you may unleash your true fury.  As a Full Round Action you may make 10 Claw Attacks at your highest Base Attack Bonus while in Kitty Form against 1 opponent.  Additionally if you it your opponent must make a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus 1/2 Hit Dice plus Charisma Bonus plus 1 for each claw that hits) or be Shaken for 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per claw that hits.

PLAYING A GRASSHOPPER
Play yourself as a random wacko.  Wise one minute, raving the next, perhaps suicidal tomorrow.  People should definitely not have a handle on how to deal with you.
 Combat: Members of the Grasshopper Society use a form of martial arts adapted to their kitty forms.  It mostly consists of flailing claw strikes and maliciously biting anything within reach.  Some think of it less of a martial art and more of a hissy fit.
 Advancement: Advancement for the Grasshoppers is an odd road.  Many multiclass a bit just for the experience.  Some will do anything once. If you've ever wanted to play a build that's all over the lace you'd be almost justified doing it with one of these guys.  They really are that flighty.
Resources: Members of the Grasshopper Society often only have their wisdom (HAHAHAHA!!) to rely upon.  They aren't especially close to each other (most view other members as rivals of some sort), and their strange behavior often alienates them from the more business oriented Cat Burglar Guilds.


THE GRASSHOPPER SOCIETY IN THE WORLD
"Bobby.  Bobby whut them critters doin' in that field out theyah??"
"Ah think thays steeling the weeds Paw!"
"Them aint weeds!!! Thems...uh..nevah mind Bobby you go back inside and get mah critter gun."
For the most part you sit around, chase bugs, drink tea, and _____ about how things aren't as good as they used to be.  Your a crotchety old eccentric and darn proud of it.
 Daily Life: Your life has no rhyme or reason.  You may spend it doing good deeds or committing sins.  You may invent new philosophies, or do your business on peoples shoes.  You do spend unusual amounts of time indulging yourself whatever your personal philosophy.
 Notables: The Unholy Master of Death (CE Male Human Cat Burglar 1/Chaos Monk 5/Grasshopper Society 6) isn't nearly as impressive as his name suggests.  He spends most of his time in cat form stone drunk.  But since no one knows he's a cat he's one of the biggest movers and shakers in the city, and often claims to be a messenger of the Master in human form.
Persimmon (CN Female Elf Cat Burglar 1/Chaos Monk 5/Grasshopper 6) is a temple guardian of the Goddess Mrrow.  No one understands how the temple is never robbed since there are only a few cats there...
 Organizations: The Grasshopper Society is an odd bunch.  Think of them sort of like Taoists.  On really bad drugs.  With a side order of mild insanity and freakish personal quirks.  They're more of a loose affiliation than an organized force.  Unless you make them angry enough.  Then you may wish to pop off to another dimension for a bit...

NPC Reaction
Most NPC's are terrified of the Grasshopper Society.  After all who isn't scared of a secret society of shape changing lunatics who happen to be martial artists?

THE GRASSHOPPER SOCIETY IN THE GAME
The Grasshoppers are utter madmen who take perverse delight in being difficult and obstinate.  Plan for this when designing encounters.
 Adaptation: Definitely a silly campaign only. Drunken Kung FU kitty monks pretty much don't adapt well to any other style.
 Encounters: PC's will likely encounter a Grasshopper when one becomes curious about them, randomly decides to interfere with their life, or adopts one as a 'disciple' (i.e. pet chew toy).

Sample Encounter
Give an example of how one might encounter a member of this PrC.
EL 12: You're sitting in the pub one day bragging about taking out some local mastermind.  A small tabby hops up on the table, steals your beer, belches loudly, and goes into Crane Stance.  Yessir looks like a normal weekend...

BIG KITTY


   
"I'm not fat, I'm big boned!!"

Sometimes the Cat Burglar Guilds extend into rural areas.  Very rural areas.  Or zoos.

Now you can pretend to be Lions or Tigers, etc.

At 8th level you gain Big Boned Kitty Form.  You get +6 Str, +6 Con, and the Natural Armor Bonus increases to +5. You are still Size Class Large, but you now have the Powerful Build ability (see page 12 of the Expanded Psionics Handbook). This effectively replaces Large Kitty Form.  It may be assumed as many times per day, and lasts as long.  You now look like a very well fed Lion or Tiger.  Or even a giant housecat.

Multiattack : You gain the Multiattack Feat as a Bonus Feat, whether you qualify for it or not.

Pounce (Ex): When making a charge attack in Kitty Form you may make a Full Attack, including Rakes if you have them.

Improved Multiattack : You gain the Improved Multiattack Feat, whether you qualify for it or not.

Improved Grab (Ex): If you successfully hit with your claw or bite attack in Kitty Form against an opponent your size class or smaller, you can make a Grapple check as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.  If you succeed you may do your bite damage each round, and Rake if you have the Rake attack yet.

Mighty Roar : You gain the Mighty Roar Feat (see Savage Species), whether you qualify for it or not.

Rake (Ex): When you successfully Grapple or Pounce you gain two secondary Rake attacks.  Damage is the same as  your claw attack.

Fat Cat (Ex): At 20th level you are considered an animal for purposes of spells that would enhance animals in a positive way temporarily (such as Animal Growth).  You now also have the Powerful Build ability all the time, not just in Kitty Form.

 
PLAYING A BIG KITTY
Sometimes the truly rich are also truly crazy.  And the craziest rich people want the most exotic pets.  That's where you come in.  Abnormally large housecat's (or just wild cats) are fairly exotic.  And crazies tend to like cats anyway...
 Combat: Try to set yourself up as a Grapple machine to take advantage of your eventual size and abilities.
 Advancement: Big Kitties usually become one of two things: A powerhouse called in for troublesome opponents, or the Guild Leader conveniently hidden in the open.
Resources: As usual you have the Cat Burglar Guilds to rely upon.  In fact many Big Kitties are the heads of the Guilds...

BIG KITTIES IN THE WORLD
"Who's mommies big fat kitty? You'se mommies big fat kitty!"
You don't much interact with the world at all.  You are the pampered pet/prisoner of some noble.  Unless you head your organization, in which case you have a lot of teeny cats dropping by...
 Daily Life: Your daily life isn't all that different from most Cat Burglars.  However since you have more of a likelihood of being caged you have picked up some decent lockpicking skills...
 Notables: Leo (CN Male Human Cat Burglar 7/Big Kitty 5) is the Leader of the Fighting Lions Guild, appearing as a mountain lion daily in the local zoo.  He uses it as his headquarters.  It's a small guild, but he hopes to expand it by seducing the wealthy visitors to the zoo.  Hannibal (CE Cat Burglar 7/Barbarian 1/Big Kitty 4) is also caged, but in a looney bin as opposed to a zoo.  The Guild lets him out when they need people to be disappeared.
 Organizations: Big Kitties usually take the Leadership Feat.  They need a little extra help to pull off the impersonation necessary.

NPC Reaction
NPC's are generally stupified by you.  You have fools who think your some sort of monster on the one hand, and people who assume your just a big kitten on the other.  But since you don't need the side of beef they feed you daily, divvying it up among the local poor tends to put your Guild in god standing with the common man.

BIG KITTIES IN THE GAME
Big Kitties do give the Cat Burglars a bit of a combat edge, but they're rare.  Regular cats are in far more demand as pets.
 Adaptation: This one is pretty silly.  Probably only good for equally silly campaigns.
 Encounters: PC's usually encounter you pretending to be a zoo animal, or the pampered pet of some rich nutcase.

Sample Encounter

EL 12: You're sitting at the house of Tom the Bloated (a local noble of typical repute), when he shows off his prized personal zoo.  One of which is a very large cat.  Which winks at you.  And then the teeny cats around his cage mosey over.  And one of them hands you a slip of paper.  It says "Why hello thar".  Tom must have busted out the good port today...

THE BLACK PAWS


   
Traditional theme song of the Black Paw Clan

"Oh we are the Ninjas!"
"La La La!"
"La La La!"
"La La La!"
"Oh we are the Ninjas!"
"La La La!"
"And you can all suck it!"

You're a sneaky little blackmailing fiend.  Unlike the other Ninja clans who do real ninja work like assassination, sabotage, deposing lords, etc, you sit around in kitty form all day soaking up gossip and leaning peoples secrets.  The other ninja clans call you lazy.  They don't do anything about it though, because you know what they get up to when they're drunk ...

BECOMING A BLACK PAW
A few levels of Cat Burglar and Ninja each will do.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form, Ghost Step
   Feats:  Nekochan, Jibba Jabba
   Skills:  Gather Information 8 Ranks, Listen 8 Ranks
 

Class Skills
 The Black Paws class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Escape Artist (Dex), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Local, Nobility)(Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock(Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex).
Skills Points at Each  Level : 6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +0    Ki Power (Mark)

9. +6    +3     +6     +3    Anonymous Kitty (Take 20)
10.+7    +3     +7     +3    Ninja Master


Weapon Proficiencies: Black Paws gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Ki Power (Su): You may use your Ninjas daily use of Ki Power to perform stunts unavailable to regular Ninja. Your Ninja and Black Paw levels stack for determining how many daily uses of your Ki power you have.

At 1st level you get the Mark power. It can be used in one of 2 ways.  The first is by pressing your paw against something you can mark it in a manner similar to the spell Arcane Mark spell with one exception: It can be seen by anyone with at least 1 level of the Black Paws PrC, and any Black Paw touching it can "feel" a message of 10 words or less.  The second is that you leave a trail of invisible Paw Prints (i.e. Arcane Marks) for 1 minute per point of Charisma modifier, or until you wish to stop, whichever comes first.  You cant leave a message in this fashion but you can leave a trail.  Detect Magic will show these marks just like Arcane Mark would show up.

At 4th level you gain the Awareness Power.  You can expend 1 daily use of your Ki Power to gain a +8 Circumstance Bonus to one of the following skills: Listen, Search, Sense Motive, Spot, or Survival (if Tracking by Scent).  This bonus lasts 1 round.

At 8th level you gain the Stealth Power.  You can expend 1 daily use of your Ki Power to gain a +8 Circumstance Bonus to one of the following skills: Hide or Move Silently.  This bonus lasts 1 minute.

Sneaky Ninja Bonus (Ex): At 2nd, 5th, and 7th level you gain a +2 Bonus to one of the following skills: Listen, Search, Sense Motive, or Spot.  You may choose the same skill more than once.

Anonymous Kitty (Ex): You can sit in plain sight while listening to gossip.  At 3rd Level you gain a +4 Circumstance Bonus to Gather Information checks.  At 6th Level you may always Take 10 on Gather Information Checks.  At 9th level you may always Take 20 on Gather Information Checks.

Ninja Master (Su): At 10th level you have mastered 1 of the many Ninja Arts.  You may choose 1 Power from the following List:

Mark Master (Su): You may cast Explosive Rune Field a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier as a Supernatural Ability. To become a Mark Master you must have the Ki Power (Mark) ability.

Awareness Master (Su): You may cast Know Vulnerabilities a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier as a Supernatural Ability. To become an Awareness Master you must have the Ki Power (Awareness) ability.


Stealth Master (Su): You may cast Shadow Form a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier as a Supernatural Ability. To become a Stealth Master you must have the Ki Power (Stealth) ability.


Ghost Master (Su): You may cast Invisibility, Greater a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier as a Supernatural Ability. To become a Ghost Master you must have the Ki Power (Ghost Step) ability.


Strike Master (Su): You may cast Toxic Weapon a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier as a Supernatural Ability. To become a Strike Master you must have the Sudden Strike ability.


PLAYING A BLACK PAWS
Normally ninjas hide out and do their best to avoid being known.  You like being known.  Since your a talking cat, no one knows who you really are, and you can say and do all the things you've ever secretly wanted to do in public.  Including shouting the closet skeletons of people who have angered you from the rooftops.
 Combat: Like most ninjas you'll rely on stealth and hit and run tactics.  No frontline tanking for you.  You do get to use Sleight of Hand to slip home made explosives into people's pants though.
 Advancement: Your goal as a Black Paw is to successfully blackmail the aristocracy (or whoever else is misbehaving) until you can successfully retire.
Resources: You have the (hopefully) vast resources of the Black Paws Ninja Clan to count on.

BLACK PAWS IN THE WORLD
"Ninja kitties fightin' for the common man yessir!"
The Black Paws were a ninja clan that discovered the art of the Cat Burglar.  Initially putting it to good use for the various lords who hired them the ninjas quickly grew tired of being the unsung servants of snobbish nobles.  So they went rogue and now use their kitty powers to find out the dirty laundry of the rich and famous and blackmail them.  You are the worlds first stalkerazzi!
 Daily Life: Generally you lounge about like the lazy scum you are listening to people gossip.  Unlike real ninjas who are busting their butt killing people.  Or so the other ninjas say...
 Notables: Thum Vu (CN Femal Human Ninja 3/Cat Burglar 3/Black Paw 6) is a local gossip diva.  Everyone goes to her for the latest news.  Even the nobles she sometimes rats out.  Tung Tong (NE Male Human Ninja 3/Cat Burglar 3/Black Paw 6) has reverted to the old ways of murder and sabotage using the knowledge he has gained of the local populace.  The Guild considers him a liability, and may be thinking of having him 'retired'.
 Organizations: The Black Paws are a fairly wide ranging clan.  They pretty much are their own organization, they don't need one devoted to helping them.

NPC Reaction
Nobles and Aristocrats hate you.  The word hate needs to be triple underlined.  Because if they have any embarrassing habits you know them.  If they're lying, incestuous sociopaths with a sheep fixation, they're probably broke now due to your constant blackmail.  Commoners on the other hand love you.  You embarrass the people they can't touch.  You mock the aristocracy in full view in public and get away with it.  And they count on you for the juiciest gossip.

BLACK PAWS IN THE GAME
The Black Paws will be disruptive little buggers.  They like causing chaos by airing peoples dirty laundry in public.   Be assured if your BBEG has any secrets they'll find it and spread it around.
 Adaptation: I'm not sure about this one.  You might actually find a use for it in a non silly campaign.
 Encounters: PC's will usually encounter a Black Paw in one of 2 ways: The player has done something stupid or questionable and is now being blackmailed for money, or this cat just all of a sudden starts telling him all this neat stuff...

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's are eating sushi in a local restaurants patio when a small black cat approaches them and says in a whispering voice: "Pssst! Hey buddy.  You wanna know what your girlfriend is up to right now?  Only 5 gold pieces."

DARTH PUDDYTATSES


   
Furby:"John the Fishers son must die.  How shall we do this?"
Skwoosh: "I know lets make him poop his own spleen.  Someone has to have 10th level in this Prestige Class.  How about you Pibbles?"
Pibbles: "Umm...."
Pibbles: "What the hells a spleen?"
Furby: "How did you even get invited to this club?"

The Darth Puddytatses are a group of psionically endowed Cat Burglars who act as enforcers and assassins for the guild.

BECOMING A DARTH PUDDYTAT
Most Darth Puddytats have a few levels in both Psychic Warrior or Lurk and Cat Burglar.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form and either Lurk Augments or the ability to manifest powers for the Psychic Warrior list
   Skills:  Autohypnosis 6 ranks, Knowledge (Psionics) 6 ranks
   Base Attack Bonus:  +4 BAB
   Feats: I Got Looks And Brains
   Alignment: Can't be Good or Lawful.

Class Skills
 The Darth Puddytatse's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Autohypnosis (Wis), Balance (Dex), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Disable Device (Int), Escape Artist (Dex), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Psionics) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Open Lock (dex), Search (Int), Spot (Wis), Tumble (Dex)
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +2    These are not the Kitties You're Looking For
2. +1    +1     +3     +3    Light Saber, +1 Manifester Level
3. +2    +1     +3     +3    Force Boing
4. +3    +1     +4     +4    Hairballs Will Be Fine, +1 Manifester Level
5. +3    +2     +4     +4    No Really It's a Light Saber
6. +4    +2     +5     +5    I Find Your Lack of Faith....To Be A Reasonably Good Excuse to Use This, +1 Manifester Level
7. +5    +2     +5     +5    Please Don't Sue
8. +6    +3     +6     +6    Use The Force Snookums, +1 Manifester Level

10.+7    +3     +7     +7    Make Them Poop Their Own Spleen, +1 Manifester Level


Weapon Proficiencies: Darth Puddytatses gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Manifester Level: At each even numbered level you gain new power points and access to new Powers as if you had gained another level in your Manifesting class.  You do not however gain any other class abilities of the class.

These Are Not The Kitties You Are Looking For (Ps): You may use Psionic Suggestion a number of times per day equal to their Charisma Modifier as a Psilike Ability. Manifester Level is equal to Hit Dice.

Light Saber (Su): At 2nd level you construct a psionic focus that you can use to project a blade of force.  It will only work for people that have this ability, costs 50 GP, and you can wield it despite inexplicably having no thumbs (its almost like its strapped to your paw).  It does damage as a +1 Longsword (if wielded in Kitty Form it does 1d6 if Small, 1d4 if Tiny, and 1d3 if Diminutive).  You use you Charisma modifier instead of Strength to determine the bonus to your to hit and damage rolls with the Saber. The damage is Force damage, and ignores Damage Reduction. Activating or Deactivating the focus is a Free Action.  You may use weapon based Feats as though it were a Longsword.

Force Boing (Su):  You may jump up to 50' without a Jump check as a Psilike ability a number of times per day equal to your Charisma Modifier. 

Hairballs Will Be Fine (Ps): You may use False Sensory Input as a Psilike Ability a number of times per day equal to your Charisma Modifier.  Manifester Level is equal to Hit Dice.

No Really It's a Light Saber (Su): Your Light Saber is now a +2 Keen Longsword.

I Find Your Lack of Faith....To Be A Reasonably Good Excuse to Use This (Ps): A number of times per day you may Force Choke a victim within 30' as a Psilike Ability.  They must make a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus half hit dice plus Charisma modifier) or begin to suffocate after 2 rounds (see DMG page 304) and is also held immobile in her square (considered to be paralyzed).  The victim gets another save each round to break the choke.  If they do, another daily use must be used to restart it.  The Darth Puddytat must make a Concentration check if he is distracted by a spell or damage similar to a Power whose duration is Concentration.  Equivalent of a 5th level Power.

Please Don't Sue (Su): Once per turn you may now deflect any ranged attack with your Light Saber that specifically targets you if you make a DC 20 Reflex Save. You must be aware of this attack, and not flat-footed.  Deflecting the attack doesn't count as an Action.  If the attack has an Enhancement Bonus the Save DC increases by that amount.

Use The Force Snookums (Su): Once per day you may gain a +20 Bonus to one roll as a Swift Action.  You must announce you are using this ability before making the roll.

Static Cling Is A Pain When You Have Fur (Ps): You may unleash a blast of Force Lightning a number of times per day equal to your Charisma Modifier as a Psilike Ability.  This works like the Energy Cone power, but it does Force damage, and Manifester Level is equal to your Hit Dice.

Make Them Poop Their Own Spleen (Su): A number of times per day equal to your Charisma Modifier you may use this ability.  You must make a Touch Attack against an opponent.  If you miss, the use of this ability is expended.  If you hit he must make a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus 1/2 Hit Dice plus Charisma Modifier).  if he fails, the next time he answers a "call of nature" (or 24 hours later if his race doesn't do that sort of thing) he dies as he poops his own spleen (or similarly important organ if he has no spleen).  If he succeeds he takes 3d6 damage instead as his Spleen (or similar organ) gives his Pancreas a damned good thrashing.
 
PLAYING A DARTH PUDDYTAT
You are the consummate professional assassin.  Or at least you desperately want people to believe that.  A good deal of your reputation comes from hypnotizing witnesses into playing up how powerful you were.
 Combat: Make sure to optimize your Light Saber attacks as it will be your main weapon of choice.  Ability Focus and a few Feats to enhance your abilities wouldn't hurt either.
 Advancement: Most Darth Puddytats are similar except in regards to their choice of Powers and Feats.  Many love the more esoteric Feats available to them, and they go out of their way to be exotic and different.
Resources: Besides the Cat Burglar Guilds, you always have the brothers to call on.  If they're in the mood.  And not hiding out from whoever they've ticked off now.  Or not drunk.

DARTH PUDDYTATS IN THE WORLD
"You cats stay away from mah spleen! Its mah spleen dammit! You get your own!"
The Darth Puddytats are an elite group.  In their own minds anyway.  The rest of the world looks upon them as killers with a screw loose and a bizarre sense of humor.
 Daily Life: Your life is training, training, training.  When you aren't training you're going on assignments for the Master.  When you aren't going on assignments for the Master you're covering for his drunken debauchees. When you aren't covering for his drunken excesses you're committing your own.
 Notables: Darth Poopsie (CE Male Human Cat Burglar 2/Psychic Warrior 4/Darth Puddytat 6) is the personal assassin of a local noble, much to the chagrin of the brotherhood.  he should be working for them.  He may need...reminded.  Darth Pibbles (CN Male Human Cat Burglar 2/Psychic Warrior/Darth Puddytat 6) is a well meaning but brutally dumb Puddytat.  Most people wonder how he manages to walk and breathe simultaneously, let alone complete all his missions so...successfully.  Obviously he must have the devils own luck.  Or he's lying about being dumb.
 Organizations: The Darth Puddytats are like a fraternity.  They can always count on one another for lodging or help in a tight spot. Supposedly...

NPC Reaction
Most NPC's have the crap scared out of them just by thinking about the Darth Puddytats.  They get the blame for ANYTHING that goes wrong in their area. If someone dies, they did it.  If the cows wont milk, it had to be them.  If your wife isn't in the mood, etc, etc.

DARTH PUDDYTATSES IN THE GAME
A class of elite psychic warrior kitties will tend to make people a bit more afraid of cats than normal.  Like they should be.  We're lookin' at you Steve.
 Adaptation: This one will be specific to silly campaigns considering that it's partially a parody of pop culture.  Of course you can always rename it and just change the fluff to make it serious.

THE ABOMINABLE SNOW KITTY


   
"My name is Nubbins, an' I'm a scorpio, an' my hobbies include collecting shiny stuff, and napping, and hurtling myself thru the air at peoples faces."

You know the Saint Bernard's that some ski resorts use as rescue dogs in case of avalanches?  Yeah that's you.  Except your a 'lil kitty, and you also scare people away from the guilds by pretending to be the fearsome Cat-faced Yeti.

BECOMING AN ABOMINABLE SNOW KITTY
You can do this with straight Cat Burglar, but most will want to take a level of Scout or Ranger or Rogue.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Features:  Kitty Form
   Feats:  Lynx-Paws, Track
   Skill Ranks:  Knowledge (Nature) 4 Ranks, Survival 8 Ranks


Class Skills
 The Abominable Snow Kitty's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Heal (Wis), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Geography, Local, and Nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str)
Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

Hit Dice: d8

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +1    +2     +0     +0    Yeti Form (Medium)
2. +2    +3     +0     +0    Improved Scent
3. +3    +3     +1     +1    Cold Resistance 5
4. +4    +4     +1     +1    Uncanny Scent
5. +5    +4     +1     +1    Yeti Form (Large)
6. +6    +5     +2     +2    Cold Resistance 10
7. +7    +5     +2     +2    Snow Swimmer
8. +8    +6     +2     +2    Dark Vision 30'
9. +9    +6     +3     +3    Cold Resistance 15
10.+10   +7     +3     +3    Yeti Form (Dire)


Weapon Proficiencies: Abominable Snow Kitties gain no new weapon proficiencies.

Yeti Form (Su): At 1st level you can become a Cat Faced Yeti once per day.  This last 3 rounds plus 1 round per point of Charisma modifier.  As a Cat Faced Yeti you are Medium sized and gain the following: +4 Dex, +2 Natural Armor Bonus,  2 claw attacks doing 1d4 plus Strength bonus.  As with Kitty Form all equipment merges with your body and ceases to function.

At 5th level you can become a Large Cat-Faced Yeti, and you can use Yeti Form twice per day. You gain +4 Str, +2 Dex, +2 Constitution, +4 Natural Armor Bonus, Land speed increases +10 feet,  2 Claw Attacks doing 1d6 plus Strength Bonus, and Large Size.

At 10th level you can become a Dire Cat-Faced Yeti, and you can use Yeti Form 3 times per day.  You gain +8 Strength, +4 Constitution, +6 Natural Armor Bonus, Land Speed increase +10 feet, 2 claw attacks doing 1d8 plus your strength bonus, Large Size, and Improved Grab and Constrict.

Improved Grab (Ex): If you successfully hit a Medium or smaller creature with your claw attack you may make a Grapple Check as a Free Acton without provoking an attack or opportunity.  If Successful you may constrict.

Constrict (Ex): A successful Grapple check does 2d6 (2d8 at level 10) plus your strength modifier for as long as you maintain the hold.

All Yeti Forms gain a Climb Speed equal to half your land speed, Immunity to Cold, Snowsight (as per the spell in Forstburn), and a +12 Circumstance bonus to Hide checks in snowy areas.

Improved Scent (Ex): At 2nd level you get the Improved Scent Feat.

Cold Resistance (Su): At 3rd level you get Cold Resistance 5.  This increases to 10 at level 6, and to 15 at level 9.

Uncanny Scent (Ex): At 4th level you gain the Uncanny Scent Feat.

Snow Swimmer (Su): You can move through snow like a fish swims through water, and you can see through snow and ice up to 60'.  Effectively it allows you to dive into a snowbank and pull out avalanche victims easily.

Dark Vision (Ex): At 8th Level you get Dark Vision 30'.

PLAYING AN ABOMINABLE SNOW KITTY
You are both a protector of the Guilds hidden bases, and a rescuer of trapped people.
 Combat: Unless your in Yeti form, avoid combat you aren't made for it.  Make sure to pimp out your Yeti form with some nice Grapple Feats tho...
 Advancement: Your double life usually means you'll be kind of restricted in what you do.  After all people will have all those expectations of you.
Resources: You have the Guild of course.  And as one of their frontline operatives you have more than the usual access to equipment.

ABOMINABLE SNOW KITTIES IN THE WORLD
"Thank god that little kitty smelled me under the snow so the rescue team could get me! Otherwise that Cat-Faced Yeti everyone talks about might've found me first!"
In your rescue operations you are well loved, especially by the peasantry.  Unbenownst to all you are also charged with protecting the Guilds secret operations and are the feared Cat-faced Yeti.
 Daily Life: During the day you are a rescue operations kitty.  You sniff out people buried in avalanches, arrange for wood to be brought to the poor, etc.  After that however you do your best to discourage anyone from approaching your Guilds secret headquarters by spreading rumor of monsters, and appearing as the mysterious and legendary CFY.
 Notables: Little Samson (N Male Human Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Abominable Snow Kitty 6) is the head rescue cat of his division, and well loved by the local populace.  Big Snuggle (CN Human Female Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Abominable Snow Kitty is the head Yeti.  She organizes scaring the bejeebus out of locals to keep them away from the Guilds base of operations.
Organizations: The Snow Rescue Guild is made of concerned individuals in areas of heavy yearly snowfall.  The Cat Burglars Guild infiltrated them early offering their services, since the semi official recognition of being a Rescuer means being able to walk into a lot of places perfectly legally they might otherwise be barred from if they were just commoners or merchants.

NPC Reaction
You are quite beloved as the magical kitties who rescue trapped people.  You are very feared as the Cat Faced Yeti.

ABOMINABLE SNOW KITTIES IN THE GAME
Being a member of a rescue team and the Guild means you will be called upon to do things that may interfere with adventuring. 
 Adaptation: This one might be adaptable to a non silly campaign, but...
 Encounters: PC's will usually encounter you as you pull them from an avalanche, or try to bluff them off as the Yeti.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The PC's are poking through the local woods when one of them who goes off alone is ambushed by the local legend: A Cat Faced Yeti.  It flees eventually but the player should be a little nervous as she can hear more of them...

SANDA'S LITTLE HELPERS


   
"Yeah sometimes I just can't resist a really bad pun."

Once't upon a time there was a great elf general named Sanda. To win his many campaigns he paid off the Cat Burglar guilds to act as his personal scouts and spies.

BECOMING A SANDA'S LITTLE HELPER
Normally you can qualify for this class with just Cat Burglar.  You could also take a few levels in Scout, Ninja, or Rogue.

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form
   Skills: Hide 8 Ranks, Listen 8 Ranks, Move Silently 8 Ranks, Spot 8 Ranks, Survival 8 Ranks
   Feats: Track
   Base Attack Bonus: +4 BAB

Class Skills
 The Sanda's Little Helper class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Escape Artist (Dex), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Geography, Local, Nature, Nobility and Royalty) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Cha), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Tumble (Dex).
Skills Points at Each  Level : d6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +0    Swift Tracker, Sniffer
2. +1    +0     +3     +0    Camouflage

7. +5    +2     +5     +2    Dark Vision 60'
8. +6    +2     +6     +2    Hide in Plain Sight
9. +6    +3     +6     +3    Uncanny Scent, Whiskers (+6)
10.+7    +3     +7     +3    Dark Vision 90', Specialty


Weapon Proficiencies: Sanda's Little Helpers gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Swift Tracker (Ex): Identical to the Ranger ability on page 48 of the Players Handbook.

Sniffer (Ex): You may use Scent outside of Kitty Form as well.

Camouflage (Ex): Identical to the Scout ability on page 13 of the Complete Adventurer.

Trackless Step (Ex): Identical to the Druid ability on page 36 of the Players Handbook.

Whiskers (Ex): You receive a Competence Bonus to Survival skill checks.  The Bonus is +2 at level 3, +4 at level 6, and +6 at level 9.

Move Like the Wind (Ex): You do not take a -5 penalty to Hide or Move Silently checks when moving at full speed, and only take a -10 when running.

Track the Trackless (Ex): By taking a -20 penalty on your Survival check you may track creatures under the influence of a Pass Without Trace spell or similar effect.

Improved Scent (Ex): At 6th level you gain the Improved Scent Feat.

Dark Vision (Ex): At 7th level you gain Dark Vision out to 60'.  At 10th level it increases to 90'.

Hide in Plain Sight (Ex): Identical to the Scout ability on page 13 of the Complete Adventurer.

Uncanny Scent (Ex): At 9th level you gain the Uncanny Scent Feat

Specialty (Su): At 10th level you may choose one of the following spells to cast 3 times per day as a Supernatural Ability: Legend Lore, Veil, Probe Thoughts, or True Seeing.  Once chosen your stuck with your spell of choice.

PLAYING A SANDA'S LITTLE HELPER
Your job is to find out things, track people down, etc.  Do your best to remain unseen, and unknown, only revealing yourself if it becomes necessary.
 Combat: You are not a combat monster.  Stealth is your best friend, and it's best for you to hide when the swinging starts and wait for an opportunity to be a spoiler.
 Advancement: Little Helpers tend to come in one of 4 varieties: the Tracker (you hunt people and things down), the Investigator (you solve crimes or odd events), the Scout (you scout ahead of military invasions or gather information), or the Saboteur (you sneak in and do bad stuff).
Resources: Your resources are usually pretty good, as most members of this class will have the backing of some sort of military organization.  Military organizations with masses of supplies, hopefully not guarded by your brethren...
SANDA'S LITTLE HELPERS IN THE WORLD
"I tell ya Lou, there's cats in them there forests!"
Depending on which side of Sanda's armies you were on, the Little Helpers are either invaluable war heroes, or dirty bastards.  People tend to love or hate you with not much in between.
 Daily Life: Much of your time is spent spying on something for something, usually alone or with a small outfit of others like you.
 Notables: Kringle (N Male Human Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Sanda's Little Helper 6) curently works as a mercenary for the Elven host.  Kristy (N Female Human Cat Burglar 2/Scout 4/Sanda's Little Helper) is currently a sherrif in a small country village.
 Organizations: Sanda and his armies are long gone, but the tradition of the Little Helpers live on.  Many law enforcement and military organizations (and adventurers guilds) make use of your skills.  You can usually count on them for support (unless of course you're caught).

NPC Reaction
Most people just think your a feral wild cat.  If they knew the truth they'd probably start hanging cats....

SANDA'S LITTLE HELPERS IN THE GAME
Sanda's Little Helpers could be trouble in a mystery campaign as their high skill levels will let them solve things easily.  But spying and investigating is what they do, so you'll have to throw in a little suspense or the class won't be worth it.
 Adaptation: Sanda's Little Helpers are one of the few PrC's for this class that might play off well in a non silly campaign.
 Encounters: PC's should never realize hey have encountered a Little Helper.  After all what kind of information gatherer would you be if people were able to pick you out.

Sample Encounter
Give an example of how one might encounter a member of this PrC.
EL 12: "Y'know Bob ever since we entered elf territory that damn cat has been following us.  He was in my tent when I woke up this morning just sitting there watching me sleep.  Damn creepy if you ask me..."

Weapon Proficiencies: Watchcats gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Watcher (Ex): At 1st level you gain Dark Vision out to a range of 60'. If you already have Dark Vision the range extends +30'.

At 4th level you may see in Darkness, magical or otherwise, as though it were daylight.

At 8th level the spell True Seeing is permanently in effect on your person (this is a Supernatural Ability).

Yowl (Su):You may let out a screech for help as a Standard Action.  Anyone in range with levels in Cat Burglar immediately knows your exact location and will hurry there if they can. Range at 2nd level is 100'.  This increases to 500' at 5th level, and 1 Mile at 7th level. You may also take the Feats Hep Meee!! 2: The Sequel, and
They Were Mean to Me Daddy as though your Watchcat levels were also Cat Burglar levels.

Peekaboo (Ex): You gain a +2 Competence bonus on Spot rolls at 2nd level.  This increases to +4 at level 4, +6 at level 6, +8 at level 8, and +10 at level 10.

Sleep Optional (Ex): At 3rd level you gain +4 on Saving Throws against all sleep effects, and only require 4 hours of sleep a night.

At 6th level the bonus increases to +6, and you only need 2 hours of sleep a night.

At 9th level you are immune to sleep effects, and do not require sleep.

I SEE ALL (Su): You are now immune to flanking and Blindness.  You do not take penalties to Spot/Search checks due to murky water, bright light, fog, etc.
 
PLAYING A WATCHCAT
You are designed more than anything to be an early warning system and help summoner.
 Combat: Unless you have the Hep Meee!! Feats to summon help, stay out of the way once the fighting starts.  You aren't really made for it.
 Advancement: You're really limited to one specific purpose.  I originally considered making this an NPC class.
Resources: In a way you are a resource.  You are the trusted early warning system of he Cat Burglar Guilds, and they make sure to pamper you.

WATCHCATS IN THE WORLD
Ralph:"Look at 'im! Evry day they sat there starin'! Starin inta mah soul! Why do they keep starin'!"
Ed: "Uh..well you are naked urinating in the street while swinging a dead pigeon..."
Ralph: "Well yeah, but everyone does that don't they?"
Your interaction with the world usually consists of "Halt, who goes there?"
 Daily Life: You get up, make coffee, go to work, drink more cofee, at some point you may actually sleep.  Then it's more coffee....
 Notables: Hellen Stovebottom (N Female Dwarf Cat Burglar 6/Watchcat 6 is a squad leader of the Watchcats in her local Guild.  Yuri Naps-On-Roofs (CN Human Female Ninja 3/Cat Burglar 3/Watchcat 3) doubles as a saboteur sometimes in her Guild.
 Organizations: The Watchcats are almost a Guild unto themselves, and your fellow Watchcats may help you even against other Guild members if it came down to it.
NPC Reaction
You scare the crap out of most NPC's.  Nothing says 'stay away' like a building with a dozen silently staring cats outside...

WATCHCATS IN THE GAME
This class will make Guilds pretty darn hard to ambush so be careful about using it.
 Adaptation: Again, this one might fit into something other than a silly campaign with a little  modification.
 Encounters: Most PC's will encounter you as someones personal bodyguard, or as the watch at the local Cat Burglar Guild.

Sample Encounter
EL 12: You spend the day preparing to enter a local house believed to be run by a Thieve's Guild.  All is well until Bob tries to sneak into the yard and one of the housecats lets out a howl of the damned that freezes you down to your soul and will be remembered in your nightmares for all eternity.  Or at least that's the excuse you'll give for pooping yourself on the raid anyway...

I Must Shout My Love From the Fencepost Wall
Please just shut the hell up...
 Prerequisites: Bardic Music, Kitty Form.
 Benefits: Your Bard and Cat Burglar levels stack for determining your size in Kitty Form.  For example a 1st level Bard/2nd level Cat Burglar would be able to become a Tiny Cat in Kitty Form.

Your Bard and Cat Burglar levels also stack for purposes of determining how many times per day you can use your Bardic Music.

Next Prestige Class: Lolcat with prerequisites including this feat and ranks in perform(comedy).
It always seems like the barrels around here have something in them.

FENCEPOST YOWLER


   
"REEEEEOOWOWOWOWOWOWOWOWW!!!"

You are a backup for the other Cat Burglars, and a living instrument of vengeance when someone needs harassment (particularly at night when they could be sleeping).

BECOMING A FENCEPOST YOWLER
Fencepost Yowlers start as Cat Burglars, and then become Bards taking up the secret art of yowling...

 ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
   Class Abilities:  Kitty Form (Tiny), Inspire Competence
   Feats:  Dodge, I Must Shout My Love From The Fencepost Wall
   Skills:  Perform (Yowling) 8 Ranks


Class Skills
 The The Fencepost Yowler's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Gather Information (Cha), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (Arcane, Local, Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Perform (Cha), Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis), Swim (Str), Tumble (Dex) and Use Magic Device (Cha)
Skills Points at Each  Level : 6 + int

Hit Dice: d6

   BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
1. +0    +0     +2     +2    Yowling
2. +1    +0     +3     +3    Dodge Audience (+2)
3. +1    +1     +3     +3    Inspire Annoyance
4. +2    +1     +4     +4    Yowling
5. +2    +1     +4     +4    Dodge Audience (+4)
6. +3    +2     +5     +5    Inspire Hatred
7. +3    +2     +5     +5    Dodge Audience (+6)
8. +4    +2     +6     +6    Yowling
9. +4    +3     +6     +6    Inspire Death
10.+5    +3     +7     +7    Yowling Doom


Weapon Proficiencies: Fencepost Yowlers gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.
 
Yowling (Su): You gain a limited number of spells that you can use as Supernatural Abilities.  At 1st level you can cast Dirge of Discord 3 times per day.  At 4th level you can cast Shout 3 times per day.  At 8th level you can cast Song of Discord 3 times per day. 

Dodge Audience (Ex): You gain a Dodge Bonus against anyone affected by your Yowling or Inspire abilities.  This Bonus is +2 at 2nd level, +4 at 5th level, and +6 at 7th level.  This stacks with other Dodge bonuses.

Inspire Annoyance(Su): A 3rd level Yowler with 9 or more Ranks in Perform (Yowling) can use one daily use of his Bardic music to Inspire Annoyance. The victim must be within 30 ft., and able to hear the Yowler.  If he fails the Willpower Save (see Bardic music, Players Handbook page 29) the opponent cannot sleep for 24 hours.  Used continuously this can easily exhaust an opponent and wear them down. Remove Curse will successfully allow the victim to sleep. In addition your Bard and Fencepost Yowler levels stack for purposes of determining how many times per day you may use Bardic Music.

Inspire Hatred(Su): A 6th level Yowler with 12 or more Ranks in Perform (Yowling) can use one daily use of his Bardic music to Inspire Hatred.  Any opponent within 30' that can hear the Yowler must make a Willpower Save (See Bardic music, Players Handbook page 29) or go berserk with fury.  They gain all of the negative abilities of a Barbarian's Rage (penalty to AC, inability to perform certain actions, etc, see page 25 of the Player's Handbook), but none of the positive ones (better stats, etc).  It lasts 3 rounds plus one round per point of the Yowlers Charisma modifier.  During that time the victims will do nothing but attempt to kill the Yowler, or at least try to run over obstacles in their path to get to him.

Inspire Death(Su): A 9th level Yowler with 15 or more Ranks in Perform (Yowling) can use one daily use of his Bardic music to Inspire Death.  The Yowler can only use this ability on someone he has successfully used his Inspire Annoyance ability on for 3 or more consecutive days.  Unless his opponent makes a Willpower Save (DC is 10 plus half character level plus Charisma modifier) it is affected as if by a Finger of Death spell (caster level is equal to Yowler's character level) as it undergoes massive cardiac arrest from sheer anger.

Yowling Doom(Su): A 10th level Yowler with 18 or more Ranks in Perform (Yowling) can use one daily use of his Bardic music to unleash a mighty screech decimating his foes.  Foes (and only foes) within 30' must make Fortitude Saves (DC is 10 plus 1/2 character level plus Charisma modifier) or take 10d6 Sonic damage.  If the Save is successful he takes half damage, if he fails automatically (rolls a 1) he is also permanently deafened.

PLAYING A FENCEPOST YOWLER
Ever known that guy who was great to his friends but a total and complete jerk to everyone else?  Well you are that guy!  If anyone messes with your kitties, his sleep is now optional.
 Combat: Yowlers aren't really combatants so much as spoilers.  You ensure the guys fighting on your side win, by distracting or messing with the guys on the other side.
 Advancement: Concentrate on the Performance (Yowling), and it shall reward you.
Resources: You have the Guild and your fellow Yowlers.

FENCEPOST YOWLERS IN THE WORLD
"YOU _______ ___________ IF I EVER GET MY HANDS ON YOU I'M GONNA MAKE YOU INTO A FRICKIN SUIT!!!!"
You have many fans among the Guilds, but not so many outside them.  Yowling is an art form lost on the ignorant masses.
 Daily Life: "Journal entry 346: I have kept the human known as 'Dilbob' awake now for 76 hours straight as per my instructions.  Have noticed him beginning to crack.  Can't wait to see how second shift does."  Most of your time is spent harassing the guilds enemies by preventing their sleep, or backing them up on missions that may require your talents.
 Notables: Divaness (CN Human Female Cat Burglar 1/Bard 5/Fencepost Yowler 6) is the top Guild punisher of her city.  Maestro (CE Elf Male Cat Burglar 1/Bard 5/Fencepost Yowler 6) is her former arch rival, now exiled from the Guild for betrayal.
 Organizations: Yowlers are an informal organization of sorts.  They help each other and look out for one another, and are sometimes more loyal to their fellow Yowlers than other Guild members.

NPC Reaction
"SHUUUUUUUUTTTUUUUUUUUUPPP!!!!!!!!!!! Shutupshutupshutupshutupshuuuuuuttuuuuuupppp!! You _______ ___________ I'll _______ kill you I swear!"

FENCEPOST YOWLERS IN THE GAME
Fencepost Yowlers tend to inspire people to want to murder them in slow and unusual ways.  keep this in mind if one of your players wishes to be one.
 Adaptation: The Yowlers are definitely a silly campaigner.
 Encounters: If the PC's have offended the Guild and need to be punished, odds are the Yowlers will be the first guys in.

Sample Encounter
Give an example of how one might encounter a member of this PrC.
EL 12: "Hi there.  I'm told you guys are buttheads.  I'll be keeping you awake tonight 'kay?"

TIBBIT JESTER


   
"My Gods you're fat.  Are all kings this fat?  How long has it been since you've seen your feet?"

Societal outcasts and secondary citizens of all kinds sometimes find gainful employment as Court Jesters.  This includes the Tibbits if they are frowned upon in some areas...

   Saves: Base Reflex Save +6
   Race: Tibbit
   Skills: Perform (Comedy) 6 Ranks

Skills Points at Each  Level : 4 + int

10.+7    +3     +3     +7   Enrage Audience, +1 level of Arcane spellcasting class


Weapon Proficiencies: Tibbit Jesters gain no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

Kitteh Magic:  When a Tibbit Jester becomes capable of casting spells of a new level he can choose 1 spell from the following list.  He may cast 1 extra spell per level per day from this list.  For example Muffins can cast up to third level spells.  He can choose 1 first, 1 second, and 1 third level spell from the following list each day to cast.  He may not use his regular spell slots to cast these spells, nor may he use these slots to cast spells from the Jester spell list.

1st: Accelerated Movement, Benign Transposition, Buzzing Bee, Distract, Distract Assailant, I Has A Flavor, Ray of Clumsiness, Slide, You Has A Flavor Too, Wall of Smoke
2nd: Baleful Transposition, Cloud of Bewilderment, Delusions of Grandeur, Dissonant Chant, Entice Gift, Greater Slide, Ray of Stupidity, Slapping Hand
3rd: Flashburst, great Thunderclap, Ray of Dizziness, Reverse Arrows, Shadow Cache, Suspended Silence, Unluck
4th: It Was the Dog, Know Vulnerabilities, Ruin Delver's Fortune, Translocation Trick
5th: Dander Blast, Do Not Want, Illusory Feast, Shadow Form
6th: I See What You Did There, You Make Kitty Scared

Insult Comic (Su): Your Jester and Tibbit Jester levels stack for determining what abilities you have with your Jester's Performance.

Enrage Audience (Su): A number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier you may use your Jester's Performance ability on all opponents within a 30' radius.

PLAYING A TIBBIT JESTER
Your a big dumb silly kitty.  At least that's what you want your employers to think.  You excel at being thought of as a fool in order to make people underestimate you. After all if you're a nobody and too stupid to be believed by anyone, people don't watch what they say around you...
 Combat: You aren't much of a fighter, but you are a talker.  Hide behind your allies and insult your enemies into a distractive frenzy before running away.  Your allies can use the exercise, you could use some fun, and your enemies need killing.  Everyone gets a little something...
 Advancement: Most Jester's advance down the same path, becoming ever more sarcastic.  You intend to bring mean to new heights (or lows depending on your point of view).
Resources: You have the Guild, possibly the local Tibbit population, and the Jesters schools you can rely upon.

TIBBIT JESTERS IN THE WORLD
"I hate sarcastic cats!"
You don't think much of the rich and beautiful.  You were raised to hate them, and since meeting them most of them haven't done much to change your mind.  You feel little guilt about betraying them and stealing from them.
 Daily Life: Your daily life consists of entertaining the fattened rich, and incidentally spying on them and their guests.  Being publicly thought of as a fool means people don't watch what they say or do in front of you because they think you're of little consequence.
 Notables: Silent But Deadly (CE Male Tibbit Cat Burglar 1/Jester 5/Tibbit Jester 6) is the Jester of an evil king.  He is used to humiliate the King's guests (and unbeknownst to all is also stealing from the King).  Furball (CG Male Tibbit Cat Burglar 1/Jester 5/Tibbit Jester 6) is also th Jester of an Evil King, but he works to bring about the Kings downfall.
 Organizations: Tibbit Jesters have only the Cat Burglar Guilds.  There are training schools in existence that they can sometimes rely upon as well.  Jester friends are always good to have.

NPC Reaction
NPC's usually just think of the Tibbit Jester's as simple (but occasionally controversial) entertainers.  No one suspects they are spies for the Guilds.

TIBBIT JESTERS IN THE GAME
Tibbit Jester's generally tie the group to a city, as they are employed as professional jester's to entertain the nobility (and are usually tied to a specific noble).  So unless the Jester's public employer travels a lot neither will the group.
 Adaptation: This particular class can be used in a non silly campaign if Tibbit's are a race in your world.  Particularly if it's espionage oriented.
 Encounters: PC's will usually encounter members of this class doing their job as Court Jesters (i.e. spies for the Cat Burglar Guilds).

Sample Encounter
EL 12: The local King is a butthead.  The PC's have gotten a temporary job in his court, but have since discovered he puts the thumbscrews to people at a whim.  And his freaky little cat Jester is a pain in the butt too...
