Class Skills:Proficiencies: Tsochari are proficient only with their own natural weapons.


Class Features

Parasitic Body: At first level, a Tsochar loses all racial bonuses, traits, and abilities and gains aberration traits (essentially darkvision 60ft.). Tsochari are small aberrations with the shapechanger subtype. They can slither along the ground at a speed of 20ft. and they have a climb speed equal to their land speed. Having a climb speed mean that a Tsochar receives a +8 racial bonus to all climb checks and always take 10 on climb checks even when rushed or threatened. Additionally, Tsochari may use their dexterity modifiers in place of their strength modifiers when making climb checks. At first level, Tsochari have two natural tentacle attacks that deal 1d4+Str damage each and have 10 foot reach. A Tsochar gains an additional tentacle attack for every 2 HD it possesses. These tentacles are equipped with sharp barbs.  These tentacles do allow the Tsochari to wield weapons and manipulate objects normally. Tsochari speak their own language and common, and may speak an additional language for every point of their intelligence modifier.

Lastly, a Tsochar receives a bonus to its armor class equal to its constitution score in the form of a natural armor bonus.

Alien Mind (Ex): A Tsochar can speak telepathically with any creature that has a language within 10ft. The range of this ability increases by an additional 10ft, for every 2 HD the Tsochar gains after the first.

If it multiclasses for an arcane/divince class it can count Tsochar levels as levels of that class for purposes of CL and for the purposes of learning new spells and geting new spell slots. So for example, a Tsochar 3 who took 1 level of sorceror could choose to have CL 4, get 3 2nd level spell slots, 1 1st level spell slot, 1 2nd level spell known and 1 0th level spell known. It wouldn't get the spell knowns and spell slots of a sorceror 3 however. It would get the familiar ability, but succubus levels wouldn't count for it.

Ability Increases: A Tsochar receives a permanent increase to its Intelligence score at each odd numbered Tsochar level as well as a permanent increase to its dexterity score at each even numbered Tsochar level. At 4th level, assuming the Tsochar has taken all 4 levels available, the increases total at +2 Intelligence and +2 Dexterity.

Improved Grab (Ex):  To use this ability, a Tsochar must hit with two tentacle attacks. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking attacks of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict. Additionally, Tsochari receive a +4 racial bonus on grapple checks and may use their Dex modifier instead of their Str modifier on grapple checks.

Wear Flesh (Ex):Inhabit:Replace:Alien Flesh (Ex):Constrict (Ex): A Tsochar deals 2d4+1,5 Str mod points of damage with a successful grapple check. When a Tsochar deals damage by means of its constrict attack, it injects its victim with poison.

Poison(Ex):Comments
[spoiler]
The Tsochar gains extra tentacles as it grows, can use Dex modifier for grapple checks, gained pseudo-spellcaster, corrected the poison and made it scale.

The Tsochar starts as a tentacled skill monkey, slow but able to climb, and then evolves into a solid grappler. At third level it finally gains it's main ability, to enter other creatures and make them do it's bidding while eating them from inside. 4th level adds DR, SR and poison, always nice stuff to have.

If you feel like playing a wearer of flesh, the Tsochar's for you!

For the Son/Daughter of Silence's Sound Immunity, just what consitutes sound-based attacks? Are they just immune to sonic damage, or effects/spells like, say, the Power Word spells? Does it extend to any spell cast with a somatic component? It just seems a little vague, and thus somewhat abuse-able.

Otherwise, it seems really interesting for a stealth character (even if I have to wonder how it's going to be effective at grappling most creatures to make use of bestow incorporeality). It seems a little weaker than some of the monsters at level 1 (seeing as how the others gain some benefit from not being humanoids), but most characters are weak at level 1. I'd really like to try playing one sometime, especially in a gestalt setting along with swordsage or rogue or something. :)

Clarified it. I tought that mentioning that Holy Word still worked was enough to clarify about the Power Word spells, but aparently it wasn't enough.

Otherwise, it seems really interesting for a stealth character (even if I have to wonder how it's going to be effective at grappling most creatures to make use of bestow incorporeality).
Well, it's suposed to be an extra thing on top of the stealth theme, so I'll let to the player how to best grapple oponents.

It seems a little weaker than some of the monsters at level 1 (seeing as how the others gain some benefit from not being humanoids), but most characters are weak at level 1. I'd really like to try playing one sometime, especially in a gestalt setting along with swordsage or rogue or something. :)
Yeah, 1st level is always harder to balance because you have so little. But glad to see it caught people's atention! :)

Growth:At 3rd level, a wererhino's alternate forms become large. Their gore attack deals 2d6 damage, in addition their natural armor improves by 1 while in alternate form.

A wererhino of 12 HD or more may choose to become huge by expending two normal transformations.

A wererhino of 16 HD or more may choose to become gargantuan by expending three normal transformations.

A wererhino of 20 HD or more may choose to become colossal by expending four normal transformations.

Tough Hide: At third level a wererhino form becomes able to shrug off blows and pain more effectively. The wererhino gains a bonus to any saves against pain effects equal to his Wererhino class level, and may stay conscious down to his constitution modifier in negative hp, this does not increase his negative hp threshold however, he still dies when he reaches his limit, and cannot remain conscious after death.

Powerful Charge: Starting at fourth level a wererhino in alternate form deals additional damage on a charge that ends with a gore attack. Double the damage on any such charge. (For purposes of abilitys that allow for more than one attack on a charge, only double the first gore attack the wererhino uses.)

Curse of lycanthropy: At 4th level a wererhino can transmit lycanthropy to other creatures. If a medium or large humanoid  or giant is hit by their natural attacks while they are in alternate form, the creature must make a fortitude save (DC10+1/2HD+Con modifier) or contract lycanthropy. For more information on lycanthropy, check the lycanthrope entry in the monster manual.

10 +9+6+3+6Noble, Flame Master, +1 Str, +1 Cha.

8 Skill points+int per level, quadruple at 1st level. Class skills:
Bluff, Craft, Escape artist, Intimidate, Hide, Profession(any) Spot, Listen, Search, Knowledge (any) Move silently, Diplomacy, Hide and Sense motive.

Proficiencies:
A Salamander is proficient just simple weapons and  also  with its tail slap.

Features:


Salamander Body:
The Salamander loses all other racial bonuses, and gains outsider traits(basically darkvision 60 foot) and the fire subtype. It is a small outsider. The salamander has no legs, instead having a powerful tail allowing him to move at a speed of 20ft. He cannot use boots of any kind.

The salamander also has a natural armor of 2+con modifier. His natural armor also go up by 1 when it grows.

Salamanders are immune to fire, but takes 50% more damage from cold attacks.

A Salamander also gains a bonus on any craft rolls involving metal equal to their HD.

Ability increase:
The Salamander gains +1 Str at levels 1, 3, 4, 5, 9 and 10, +1 Con at levels 2, 4, 6 and 9, and +1 Cha at levels 6, 7, 8 and 10, for a total of +6 Str, +4 Con and +4 Cha at level 10.


Tail slap:
At level 2 the salamander can make a tail slap dealing 1d4+ 1/2 str dmg.

Heat:
At 2nd level a salamander generates so much heat that its mere touch deals additional fire damage. This applies to natural weapons of the salamanders. Melee weapons wielded by the salamander also conduct this heat. This ability can be suppressed and resumed as a free action. At level 2 the heat deals 1d6. For every extra 5 HD from there this damage increases one size category (1d8 at 7 HD, 2d6 at 12 HD, 2d8 at 17 HD )

Multiattack: At level 3 the Salamander gain the multiattack feat even if he do not have the requisites of three natural weapons. It can attack with a manufactured weapon as primary attack and it's tail slap as secondary attack with just -2 penalty on the tail slap instead of -5.


Improved Grab:
At 3rd level, to use this ability, a salamander must hit a creature of up to one size larger than itself with its tail slap attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can constrict.

Powerfull tail: At level 4, the tail slap of the salamander now deals 1d8+1/2 Str mod damage, and it's reach is doubled (10 foot for small/medium size, 20 for large size, etc). If the salamander changes size adjust the damage acordingly as well.


Constrict :
A salamander deals automatic tail slap damage (including fire damage) whit a successful grapple check against creatures up to one size larger than itself. A large or larger salamander can constrict multiple creature simultaneously provided they are all at least two size smaller than it.

Growth: At level 5 the salamander grows to medium size. At level 9 the salamander grows to large size.

Salamander Skin: The Salamander gains DR/magic equal to half his HD.

Flame Initiate:
The Salamander can now use Burning Hands, Fireball and Flaming Sphere as SLA's each 1/day for each HD it has. Save DCs are 10+1/2 HD+Cha mod.

In adition, a salamander who multiclasses for an arcane or divine casting class can count his salamander levels as levels of that class for purposes of CL and for the purposes of learning new spells and geting new spell slots. So for example, a Salamander 7 who took 1 level of sorceror could choose to have CL 8, get 3 4th level spell slots, 1 3rd level spell slot, 1 4th level spell known and 1 0th level spell known. He wouldn't get the spell knowns and spell slots of a sorceror 7 however. He would get the familiar ability, but Salamander levels wouldn't count for it.


Flame Adept:
The Salamander can now use Wall of Fire and Dispel Magic 1/day for each 2 HD it has. Save DCs 10+1/2HD+Cha mod. At 11 HD the Dispel Magic is upgraded to Greater Dispel Magic.

Melt: The Salamander's expertise with the forge teaches him how to focus heat untill it can burn trough anything. If the Salamander would use any ability that deals fire damage (like a SLA, spell or heat), as a swift action the salamander may instead reduce the fire damage  by half and make it count as untyped damage.

Noble:Any spells or SLAs cast by the Salamander with the [Fire] descriptor have no limit on the number of dice they deal and are cast at +2 CL. In adition, a number of times per day equal to their Cha mod, a Noble Salamander may use his Melt ability to deal full untyped damage with a fire SLA or spell.

Flame Master:the Salamander can now use Summon Monster VII as a SLA 1/day for every 5 HD it has, but only for summoning huge or smaller fire elementals.

At 13 HD it may use Summon Monster VIII (greater fire elemental) instead.

At 16 HD it may use Summon Monster IX (elder fire elemental) instead

At 19 HD it may use Elemental Swarm (fire only) instead.

[/SPOILER]

Comments:
[spoiler]
Salamanders are hard and skilled workers with pyromaniac tendencies. They seem to just use simple weapons and are slow moving but get better skills than normal and a tick natural armor.

The Salamander has full Bab, two good saves and +6 Str, +4 Con and +4 Cha, but it's somewhat lacking on mobility and SLAs, plus just DR/magic. Melt ability helps to deal with oponents with fire resistance/immunity, and the capstone should help make Fire focused salamanders more viable. Also pumping out powerfull fire elementals to help.

If you feel like playing a skilled, slow but tough fire-focused monster, the Salamander's for you.

A rogue can spot and safely "clean" an object with his trap sense, search and disable DCs are 10+HD+Con modifier.

Disease perfection Su: At 20th level, the Styx dragon's affinity for disease has reached it's peak. From this point on, the dragon's disease based abilities* affect even those normally immune to them. The dragon now bypasses any immunity derived from type, race, class, or anything else besides being a Styx dragon (or summoned by a Styx Dragon). Styx dragons are still immune to each other's diseases. In addition, anything that is not normally immune to disease receives no save and the saves on the disease are now equal to the save of the dragon's breath weapon.

*The abilities that disease ascension and perfection apply to are the dragon's tail blades, its SLAs, and any spells it can cast due to the class.
[/spoiler]

Comments
[spoiler]
The Styx Dragon can't fly, but it swims and burrows quite well. It has a powerfull array of SLAs and disease abilities to back up it's melee-grappling abilities and bard-sorceror spellcasting.

If you feel like playing an aquatic dragon that lays down plagues upon his oponents, the Styx Dragon's for you!
[/spoiler]

In addition to the features described herein, there are new feats to enhance the Styx dragon's disease based abilities. (Credit to Hyudra)

Extraordinary Disease [Monstrous]
Your disease works in a manner above and beyond that of other creatures of your type.
Prerequisite:  A natural weapon that can transmit disease, 13 Con and 6HD, at least one of which must be a level in a monster class.
Benefit:  Choose one of the following from the list to enhance your poison:
[spoiler]
  • Pathogen:  Each time the victim fails a save against the disease (including the initial save to find if the disease was contracted), the DC is increased by +2.
  • Rapid Onset:  The Disease now has an incubation period of 1d3 rounds.  This may be taken a second time, reducing the incubation period to 1d3-2 rounds.
  • Scourge:  The victim must save against the disease twice as often (ie. from every 24 hours to every 12 hours).  This option may be taken multiple times, halving the amount of time the victim must save each time it is taken.  (from 24 to 12, 12 to 6, 6 to 3, and so on).
  • Fever:  Once the poison enters the victim's system, the victim displays a rapidly progressing fever.  From the point the victim fails the saving throw up until the time the disease is removed, the victim is Fatigued.  Once the disease is incubated, the victim must make a fortitude save on any given hour or Exhausted, instead. (DC is 10 + creature's HD + creature's Con)

Once the disease has incubated, the victim must save or be nauseated/confused (again, as appropriate to the disease) on any given hour.
  • Miasma:  After a disease has finished incubating, a contagious vapor begins leaking out of their nose and mouth to taint the air around them.  The disease effectively becomes inhalation and contact based, transmitted with the victim themselves as the origin point.  Any infections transmitted in this way have the traits of the original disease, but with only a 50% chance the new victim will also show signs of the miasma.

1d3 rounds after a victim afflicted with Miasma dies, the miasma begins consuming their body, filling all adjacent squares with the inhaled version of the disease.
  • Blight:  The disease becomes potent enough to affect targets that are normally immune, as the individual elements in the disease produce byproducts that consume, occlude or taint even inanimate matter or energies.  The Disease can now affect any creature that cannot produce the disease itself, including those creatures that are typically immune or that lack constitution scores.  The effects of the poison are halved when affecting such opponents, rounding down.  Diseases that would deal Con damage to creatures with no Con score deal Cha damage instead.
[/spoiler]
Special: This feat may be taken multiple times, choosing a different option each time (or choosing options that specifically allow multiple instances).

Ravid



Class
[SPOILER]Hit Dice: d8

LevelBABFortRefWillSpecial
1+1+2+0+2Serpent Body, Positive Energy Lash
2+2+3+0+3Flame Retardant, Improved Positive Energy Lash
3+3+3+1+3Airborne, Skilled Combatant
4+4+4+1+4Greater Positive Energy Lash
5+5+4+1+4Animate Objects

Class Skills: (4+Int Mod, x4 at 1st level) Escape Artist, Heal, Hide, intimidate, Know (Planes), Listen, Move Silently, Spot, Survival, Use Rope

Proficiencies: Ravids are proficient with their own natural attacks.

Class Features:

Serpent Body: Ravids lose all racial traits & features and gains the Outsider type including all traits determined by that. They are Native to the Positive Energy Plane, and recieve the Extraplanar subtype when anywhere else.
Ravids are Medium sized and have a base land speed if 20ft. Because they don't have legs Ravids technically slither an inch off the ground, however this is not flight yet and as such they are subject to all normal effects for land bound creatures; falling damage, rough terrain etc.
They have a primary tail slap that deals 1d6+Str damage and a secondary claw that deals 1d4+1/2Str damage.
Ravids have a natural armour bonus of 1+Con Mod.

Positive Energy Lash (Su): Ravids are suffused with Positive Energy and may release it as part of an attack. 4/day for each HD it has a Ravid may add an overstimulating effect to any tail lash attack it makes. If the target takes damage from the attack it must make a Fort Save (DC 10+1/2HD+Con) or suffer an effect identical to the Dazzled condition for 1 round.

Flame Retardant (Ex): At second level Ravids gain Fire Resistance 1/HD. At 15HD this instead becomes full Fire Immunity.

Improved Positive Energy Lash (Su): At second level the Ravid hones it's Energy Lash's capabilities. By spending two uses of Positive Energy Lash instead of one a target that fails it's Save is Fatigued, an Dazzled if it successfully makes it Save.
The Ravid's claw attack now inherits the lesser Lash effect as described at level 1.
The Ravid may choose which of these effects it uses in a full attack or none if it chooses. It cannot however use both in the same full attack.

Airborne(Su): From third level Ravids are able to move further from the ground. They are no longer hampered by rough terrain and may treat a fall as being 10ft less than it was. They may also fly at a speed of 60ft(A) for a number of rounds equal to their Con Modifier (min 1) each day before having to land for at least 1 round.
At 5HD their flight speed increases to 60ft(G) and they may fly indefinitely.
At 12HD their fly speed increases to 60(P) and their flight becomes an (Ex) ability.

Skilled Combatant (Ex): From third level the Ravid becomes a master of battling with it's unusual physique. It may take the Multiattack feat despite not having the requisite three natural weapons.

Greater Positive Energy Lash (Su): At fourth level the Ravids energy lash becomes more potent. If the target takes damage from it's tail slap and fails it's Save it instead now suffers an effect identical to the Sickened condition, becoming Fatigued if they do make their Save successfully. If the target is a mindless undead it also acts as though Turned (see Turn Undead). Greater lash costs 3 uses of it's Positive Energy Lash to activate.
The Ravid's claw attack now inherits the Improved Lash effect as described at level 2.
The Ravid may choose which of these effects it uses in a full attack or none if it chooses. It cannot however use both in the same full attack.

It may also choose to forego it's usual tail slap damage & the Sickened/Fatigued effect when using Greater Lash and instead make a touch attack with it's tail that deals 2d10+1/HD pure positive energy damage (thus bypassing DR etc). This damage harms both living and undead targets alike and can affect incorporeal undead as easily as corporeal ones.

Animate Objects (Su): At fifth level the Ravid learns to channel the raw positive energy that suffuses it in a much more complex way. A Ravid may use this ability 1/day for each HD it has. The Ravid may imbue an object with the semblance of life as though it had cast the spell Animate Objects, where the Caster Level equals the Ravid's HD. This ability can affect any unattended object within 20ft of the Ravid.
1/day for every 10HD it has the Ravid may choose to make an object it animated with this ability last for 24 hours before becoming inanimate again.[/SPOILER]

At the end of each DeathDrinker's turn every other creature, whitin 5 feet for every 4 DeathDrinker HD takes 1d6 damage per 4 DeathDrinker HD. Undeads are instead healed for the same amount. Notice this isn't negative energy damage, so  constructs and creatures protected by Death Ward take the damage as well. This ability can be supressed and restarted at will by the DeathDrinker.

Death Disciple:The deathdrinker now benefits from a permanent (Ex) Death Ward effect as the spell. In adition, if the DeathDrinker multiclasses as a cleric can can count his DeathDrinker levels as levels of that class for purposes of CL and for the purposes of learning new spells and getting new spell slots. However, he does not retroactively gain spell slots or new spells for caster levels he did not take, nor does she add his DeathDrinker level to her character level for the purpose of other class features, such as turn undead.

So for example, a DeathDrinker 10 who took 1 level of cleric would receive one 6th level spell slot, one 6th level domain spell slot, one 3rd level spell slot and one 1st level spell slot instead of one 1st level normal spell slot, one 1st level domain spell slot and three 0th level slots.

If the DeathDrinker picks two from the Death, Evil and Destruction Domains, he can use his Str score instead of his Wis for cleric spellcasting purposes, but only adds half his Str mod to the DC of his spells.

True Seeing: Permanent effect, as the spell.

Warrior Magic: A number of times per day equal to his Con modifier, the DeathDrinker may cast one of his SLAs as a swift action.

Bonus Feat:
At levels 13, 15 and 17 the DeathDrinker receives a bonus feat from either the Fighter Bonus feat list or a feat with the [Vile] descriptor.

Battle-Hardened:
The DeathDrinker life of war has made him a seasoned warrior. His DR is now equal to his HD. In adition, 1/day for each HD it can add his Str modifier to a skill of his choice for 1 minute as a swift action.

Death Weaponry:
On the hands of a DeathDrinker any weapon is a deadly implement of destruction. 1/day for each HD it has as a swift action, the DeathDrinker can make any weapon he wields gain an enanchment bonus equal to 1/4 his own HD and bypass all DR and hardness for 1 round. If the weapon is used to kill a creature while this effect is still active, the bonus lasts for 1 hour instead.

Death Tracker:
You can run from a deathdrinker but you cannot hide. By meditating for 1 hour, the blooddrinker can discern the location of any creature he has personally damaged with a weapon as long as he still has said weapon. This ability just tells the direction to that creature, not how far away it is, or the conditions it is in, so the DeathDrinker cannot teleport directly. If the creature is in another plane, Death Tracker can be combined with a planeshift spell cast on the deathdrinker to carry the DeathDrinker to that plane, altough he has no idea what the plane actualy is untill he arrives there.


Soul Taker:
Whenever the Death Drinker kills a creature with a weapon, he may capture his soul inside that weapon. If used to destroy an undead/construct/something not normally alive it may capture it's essence anyway, preventing it from coming back with effects like limited wish, wish, miracle, rejuvenation or a lich's pylachtry. The only way for geting the creature back is to track and destroy the weapon where the soul/essence is captured.

In adition, the DeathDrinker can call the power of a captured soul for himself. 1/day per 10 HD as a free action the DeathDrinker can grant himself +1 moral bonus on attack rolls, damage rolls and saves for each HD of the captured soul/essence with more HD stored inside his wielded weapon. A DeathDrinker cannot gain a bonus bigger than his own HD this way.

[/spoiler]

Comments:
[spoiler]
TheDeath Drinker is actualy a simple yet effecient high level monster on it's original shape. Powerfull melee, true seeing, air walk and quickened greater teleport and greater dispel magic to close in with casters and debuff them, plus a no save damage aura, bonus for killing stuff plus all the standard demon package.

But that so fills around half the levels. So I gave it improved DR at higher levels, some bonus feats and some custom abilities to follow the whole "KILL!" theme. Also gave it the ability to quicken his SLAs by himself since the original DeathDrinker "cheats" by having 27 HD to qualify for a lot of feats. As a capstone the DeathDrinker can stop defeated enemies from coming back for good and gain a pretty fat moral bonus once per day (twice at level 20) that however doesn't stack with

Death Disciple it's because cleric is the deathdrinker's favored class. They seem to like death that much. Str as spellcasting stat may be too good, so you can only add half the bonus to spell DCs. Still a pretty good deal.

Massive +11 to Str and Con rounds with full Bab, two good saves and powerfull skills it up.

If you want to play a bloodthirsty demon who loves melee and doesn't loses times with silly fireballs and other ofensive SLAs the deathdrinker's for you.

Bonus Feat, Elder Elemental

Class Skills: (2 + Int. Mod.) x4 at first level. The Air Elemental's class skills are Concentration, Escape Artist, and Intimidate.

Class Features
Proficiencies: An Elemental is proficient with its own natural weapons.

Body of Fire:Burn (Ex):Meta BlazeAbility Increase: The Fire Elemental burns brightly in both body and soul. A Fire Elemental receives a permanent increase to either his charisma score or constitution at 2nd, 4th, 7th, and 9th level. It chooses which one to increase at each instance is isn't forced to make the same ability increase each time. Additionally, the Elemental receives an increase to his dexterity score at 3rd, 5th, 8th, and 10th level. These increases total to be +4 to Charisma and/or Constitution and +4 to Dexterity by 11th level.

Growth: An elemental grows quickly after its birth. At 3rd level, the elemental gains the ability to spend a standard action to grow to medium size.  It may remain this size for as long as it wishes and may also return to small size at anytime it wishes by spending another standard action. At 7th level, this ability expands allowing to elemental to assume large size. The elemental still changes size as a standard action but the elemental may only change by one size category on any given turn. So, for example, an elemental wishing to change from small to large would need two turns. One to achieve medium size and then another to grow to large. Finally, at 11th level, the elemental gains the ability to assume huge size.

Spitfire (Su): At 3rd level, a Fire Elemental gains the ability to hurl balls of fire at his enemies. This is a ranged touch attack which has a range of 60ft. with no range increment. Using this ability requires one standard action and deals 1d8 for every 4 HD the elemental possesses and an additional point of damage for every point of the elemental charisma modifier or constitution modifier (whichever is greater). The damage dealt by this ability may be enhanced by The Empower, Intensify, Lingering, Quicken, or Maximize Blaze feats.

Flame Skin (Ex): At 4th level, The elemental gains DR/-, equal its 1/2 HD. Additionally, Creatures hitting a fire elemental with natural weapons or unarmed attacks take fire damage and are subject to being caught on fire as though they were hit with the elemental's slam attack.

Leap of Flames (Su): In a burst of fire and speed, the fire elemental surges forth, leaving a trail of flames in its wake. As a full-round action, the elemental transform itself into a ball of fire and may hurl itself in a straight line in any direction. This line can be of any length from 10 feet to up to 5ft/HD. The Elemental reappears in any square adjacent to the last square entered by the line, along with any gear worn or carried (up to a maximum of its heavy load limit). Creatures in occupying any square the line travels through takes ld6 points fire damage for every 2 HD the elemental possesses. A successful Reflex save halves this damage. The fire elemental may use this ability once per day for every 2 HD it possesses. The damage dealt by this ability may be enhanced by The Empower, Intensify, Lingering, Quicken, or Maximize Blaze feats.

Holocaust Cloak (Su):Blistering Heat (Su):Oppressive Heat (Su): The blistering heat created by the elemental is a burden to all creatures near the elemental. At 9th level, the Fire Elemental produces an incredible aura of intense heat. This aura extends in all directions from the elemental 10ft. for every 4 HD the elemental possesses. Creatures within this aura who are not immune to fire or do not possess fire resistance greater than the Elemental's HD, must succeed on a fortitude save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the elementals HD + the elementals charisma modifier or constitution modifier (whichever is greater.)) or take a penalty to all attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks equal to the elementals charisma modifier or constitution modifier (whichever is greater.) for as long as they remain in the radius of the aura. Any creature who succeeds on the save is immune to the effects of this ability for 24 hours. Creatures who are affected by this ability but move out of its area due to its own movement or the movement of the elemental are entitled to a new save each time they re-enter the aura's radius. An Elemental can suppress or activate this ability as a free action.

Nova (Su): The Culmination of the elementals power, at 10th level, the elemental gains the ability to, once per day for every 10 HD it possesses, erupt into a brilliant explosion of flame and light. The explosion fills a radius that extend 5ft./HD and deals 2d6 for every HD the Elemental possesses. Creatures within the area are entitled to a reflex save. Those that succeed take only half damage. Additionally, any creature within this area must also succeed on a fortitude save or be blinded for a number of rounds equal to the elementals charisma modifier or constitution modifier. The damage dealt by this ability may be enhanced by The Empower, Intensify, Lingering, Quicken, or Maximize Blaze feats.

Elder Elemental (Su): At 11th level, The Fire Elemental has grown to its full strength and is considered to be amongst the grandest of its kind. The Elemental receives a +4 bonus to all bluff, diplomacy, and intimidation check regarding creatures with the fire subtype. Additionally, the Elemental can call fire to its aid. The Fire Elemental can use summon monster V once a day for every 4 HD it possesses but may only us it to summon fire elementals. At 13th level, and every two levels thereafter, the fire elemental may use this ability to cast the next highest level summon monster spell to the maximum of summon monster IX at 19th level.

Pegasus

[SPOILER]HD: d8
LevelBabFortRefWillFeature
1+ 1+2+2 + 0Pegasus Body, Spell-like Abilities, Divine Blood, Scent
2+ 2+3+3 + 0Wings, Teeth, Skill Bonuses, +1 Str, +1 Con
3+ 3+3+3 + 1Growth, Steed of the Gods, +1 Str, +1 Con

Class Skills: (4+Int Mod)x4 at first level. The pegasus class skills are Balance, Concentration, Jump, Listen, Sense Motive, Spellcraft, Spot, and Survival.

Proficiencies: Pegasi are proficient with their own natural weapons. They are not proficient with any armor.

Class Features:

Pegasus Body:
A pegasus loses all other racial traits and gains the following traits:

[SPOILER]Medium size
40 ft. base land speed
Two natural hoof attacks, dealing 1d6+Str mod damage
Darkvision 60'
Low-light vision
Pegasi are quadrupeds, and do not possess hands or limbs capable of fine manipulation. Thus, they cannot wield weapons or manipulate objects. They have developed appropriate somatic components for spells, however, and may cast spells that require them as normal.
Pegasi cannot speak, but understand Common (and gain bonus languages as normal).
Additionally, the pegasus gains a bonus to natural armor equal to its Con modifier.[/SPOILER]

Scent (Ex): At first level, pegasi gain the scent ability.

Divine Blood: Although pegasi levels do not grant spellcasting, they stack with levels in divine spellcasting classes to determine caster level. Multiclassed pegasi may also choose to let their pegasus levels stack for purposes of determining spells known and spells per day gained (not total). For instance, a pegasus 3/cleric 1 may choose to either gain 3 0th and 1 1st level spell or 1 0th, 1 1st, and 1 2nd level spell. Despite their lack of hands or speech, pegasi may cast spells with somatic and verbal components.

Ability Increases:
At second and third level, the pegasus gains a permanent +1 bonus to Str and Con.

Spell-like Abilities: Beginning at first level, the pegasus can cast detect good or detect evil 2/day per HD.

Wings (Ex): At second level, the pegasus' vestigial wings develop fully, and it gains a fly speed of 30' (average maneuverability). This improves by 10' every 3 HD thereafter.

Teeth (Ex): At second level, the pegasus gains a secondary bite attack that deals 1d6+1/2 Str damage.

Skill Bonuses (Ex): At second level, the pegasus gains a racial bonus to Spot and Listen equal to HD/2.

Growth: At third level, the pegasus grows to Large (long) size.

Steed of the Gods (Ex): At third level, the pegasus gains a +10 inherent bonus to land and fly speeds. Additionally, it gains the bonus feat Flyby Attack, and its maneuverability increases one step (to good).
[/SPOILER]
Comments:
[SPOILER]My first attempt at a monster class - the pegasus' fluff wants badly to be a paladin, hence the reasoning for Divine Blood (and the note about them being able to do somatic/verbal components, which Savage Species considers worth a feat), but I don't want to step on the unicorn's toes here, similar as they are.

Cut scent from the original monster - seemed extraneous. Can add it back in, though.

The pegasus gains flight fairly early, at second level, and it scales slowly - up to 100' at 20th level, including the bonus at third. It gets Pounce at third, so it's a fair charger, but lacks defensive capability (doesn't have the nat. armor bonus that's common around here).

Basically - flight, pounce, three natural attacks, large size, and a fluffy spell-like, but it's got no AC to speak of and can't talk or wield weapons. Rounded out with okay hit dice, decent skills, two good saves, and good BAB.

Proficiencies: Murderjacks are proficient with natural weapons and light armour

Fey Body: A Murderjack loses all racial features and becomes a Fey. It gains low-light vision, a base speed of 30 feet and two claw attacks that deal 1d4 damage and are treated as the Murderjack's primary attacks. It takes no penalty for attacking with both claws as a fullattack. A Murderjack has natural armor equal to his Con modifier.

Sneak Attack: As the Rogue ability.

Spells: A Murderjack knows and  casts spells just like a Bard of it's MurderJack. Murderjack levels that grant casting stack with Bard levels for the purpose of determining the Bard's caster level, spells known and spells per day

Woodland Camouflage (Su): In woodland areas, the murderjack's green and brown seems to blur and fade into the brackground. Attacks directed at a murderjack of 2nd level or higher when it is in a woodland area suffer a 5% miss chance, plus an additional 5% for every two HD the murderjack possesses (up to 50% at 20th level).

Ability increase:
At levels 2, 5 and 7 the MurderJack gains +1 to Str.
                            At levels 4, 6, 8 the MurderJack gains +3 to Cha.
                            So at level 9 the MurderJack has +3 to Str and Cha.

Each potentially affected opponent must succeed at a Will save (10 + 1/2 of the murderjack's HD + its CHA modifier) or become panicked. Even if they suceed they are shaken. Enemies with equal or more Hit Dice become shaken only on a failed save. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.

True Fey Body: At 9th level, the murderjack's base land speed increases to 50ft and its climb speed increases to 50ft. It gains spell resistance of 11+its HD.
 [/SPOILER]

Comments
[SPOILER]
Original

I had to reduce its Sneak Attack by two dice and give it a not-useless SR (Standard has 6+HD). Bardic casting mirrors the original at 2/3 HD. It's not quite as good as the Rogue (less BAB, skill points, skills, proficiencies) or the Bard (no songs, less BAB, less skills, less casting) but can enter PrCs intended for both without too much hassle and has tasty ability bonuses.

My comments:

Pumped out the spellcasting, lowered the skills and stat bonus. So we get a songless bard with sneak attack, DR, SR, +3 to Str and Cha, less skill points and just one save to make space for some extra feyish abilities.

Better picture needed. Google search for Murderjack only gives photos of real people. Something elvish, savage, but whitout manufactured weapons.

Proficiencies: Couatls are proficient with their own natural weapons.

Class Features

Rainbow Body: Couatls lose all racial traits & features and gains the Outsider type including all traits determined by that. They are Native to the Material Plane, and recieve the Extraplanar subtype when anywhere else.
They are Medium sized with a land speed of 20ft. They have wings but are not able to fly yet; however they can use them to slow their descent, meaning they never take more than 1d6 falling damage, and flapping grants them a +4 racial bonus on Jump Checks.
They gain a bite attack that deals 1d2+Str damage and inflicts it's Poison.
Couatls gain a natural armour bonus equal to it's Con Mod.

Lesser Psionics (Sp): A Couatl may use Detect Chaos, Detect Evil, Detect Good, Detect Law & Hypnotism as the spells 1/day for each HD it has. The Save DC for all current and future Couatl Psionics abilities is 10+1/2HD+Cha Mod.

Poison: (Ex) The Couatl inflicts it's Poison on any target that takes damage from it's bite attack. It deals 1d4 Str damage, and the same again 1 minute later. The Save DC is 10+1/2HD+Con Mod.
It may use the poison as often as it likes, but only 1/round.
At 6HD and every 6 after that the Poison deals an additional die of primary & secondary damage.

Stat boosts (Ex): At first, third, sixth & ninth level the Coual gains +1 to Str and Cha. At fifth and tenth level it gains +1 to either Str or Cha, representing that individual's choice to focus more on it's physical or magical abilities.

Superior Sorcery: From second level a Couatl casts spells as a Sorcerer of it's Couatl level -1. Despite having no hands Couatls use a
combination of wing beats an snake-like movements to provide the somantic components for spells as easily as any other race can.
Couatl Caster Levels stack with Sorcerer levels for spells/day and spells known, but not Familiar advancement. Couatl levels can also be used as Sorcerer levels for PrC pre-requisites.

Telepathy (Su): The Couatl's blossoming magical abilities allow it to speak directly into the minds of others. It gains Telepathy at a range of 10ft/HD.

 Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a Couatl must hit a creature of up to two size categories larger with its bite attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. Once it reaches 6th level, if it wins the grapple check, it establishes a hold and can use it's Constrict.

Flight (Ex): At fourth level the Couatl's wings become strong enough to sustain flight. It gains a fly speed of 40ft(A).

Moderate Psionics (Sp): The Couatl may now use Detect Thoughts and Invisibility 1/day for each 2HD it has.

Growth (Ex): The Couatl grows to large size. It's bite now deals 1d3+Str damage.

Change Shape (Su): A Couatl may assume the form of any Small or Medium Humanoid for 1 hour/HD each day. Changing form is a Move equivalent action.

Constrict (Ex): At sixth level the Couatl also develops it's physical strength. On a successful Grapple check it deals 2d8+Str damage to the target.

First Domain (Ex): At seventh level the Couatl unlocks new power from the jungle cults that worship it's species. It may select any one of the following Cleric Domains (Air, Good & Law) and add all the spells up to and including the level they can currently cast as a Sorcerer (under usual circumstances this would be 1-3) as bonus spells to their Spells known automatically, and it may choose any remaining spells from that Domain as spells known in future.
All spells from domains are considered arcane in nature for the Couatl so try don't require a divine focus, but are subject to arcane spell failure.

Venom (Ex): At eighth level the Couatl's poison takes on new potency. The Couatl may either:
-Increase all it's Poison damage to d6s
or
-Change the stat that the poison affects each time they recover their spells for the day.

Greater Psionics (Sp): At ninth level the Couatl may use Plane Shift And Ethereal Jaunt as the spells 1/day for every 4HD they have.

Second Domain (Ex): The Couatl gains another Domain from the previous list, and again adds the spells of levels that it can currently castas bonus spells to it's spells known (usually 1-4). As with it's First Domain the Couatl can now choose from the remaining spells in the domain as regular spells known.

Rainbow Master (Ex): At tenth level the Couatl becomes a paragon of it's kind. It's Fly Speed improves to 60ft(G). They also gain the Domain power for the two Domains they have chosen. Finally they gain a +1 racial bonus to the DCs of their Psionics abilities and their Poison.[/SPOILER]

[SPOILER]And there's the Couatl, my third lizardy monster in one day. Totally a coincidence, but maybe I'm just a weirdo :smalltongue:

Gave it good BAB to make us of it's combat abilities, and some Str & Cha boosts to improve it's abilities. Took away it's at will stuff and based it on HD, and topped up it's Poison.

The Domains are to incorporate the Rainbow Servant PrC fluff.

I'm worried I overdid it, have a look and let me know.[/SPOILER]
