Deathless Frenzy (Ex): As Complete Warrior, p. 35.

Frenzy (Ex): 3/day as Complete Warrior, p. 34.

Improved Power Attack (Ex): As Complete Warrior, p. 35.

Lycanthropic Empathy (Ex): In any form, Beorn can communicate and empathize with normal or dire bears. This gives them a +4 racial bonus on checks when influencing the animal’s attitude and allows the communication of simple concepts and (if the animal is friendly) commands, such as “friend,” “foe,” “flee,” and “attack.”

Resist Nature’s Lure (Ex): Beorn gains a +4 bonus on saving throws against the spell-like abilities of fey.

Supreme Cleave (Ex): As Complete Warrior, p. 35.

Trackless Step (Ex): Beorn leaves no trail in natural surroundings and cannot be tracked. He may choose to leave a trail if so desired.

Wild Empathy (Ex): Beorn can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. He rolls 1d20 and adds his druid level and his Charisma modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly.

To use wild empathy, Beorn and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time.

He can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but she takes a –4 penalty on the check.

Wild Shape (Su): Small-Large animal 4/day as Player's Handbook.

Woodland Stride (Ex): Beorn may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at his normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that have been magically manipulated to impede motion still affect him.

I figure that Mr. Rogers is a 17th+ Shaper, on account that the "Land of Make Believe" is obviously a genesis plane. The portal the trolley goes through is a portal to the astral plane, specifically the very place that one can enter his personal plane, (Which was installed by his friend, Mr. Mcfeeley the Nomad using a house-ruled power level 9 that allows permanent portals to be made). The Buildings and artificial things around the Land of Make Believe were made with True Creation, and everyone is very nice to him, since he will crystallize anyone that tracks things into his nice house.

In all seriousness, I already made a thread like this (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=52024&highlight=statting+fictional+characters), but this is better worded, and your thread just makes more sense. Also,

Feats: Improved Unarmed Strike, Power Attack, Cleave
CR: 5

(Rage and Power Attack NOT figured into stats)

Combat:

James will fight and easily kill while raging anyone that gets in the way of accomplishing his goal. When entering combat, he immediately rages, power attacking as much as possible, and making Cleaves whenever he can.

Character Info:

James is definitely chaotic, as well as easily distracted, and easily confused. All his life, he has been betrayed by the institutions that always surrounded him, leaving him the the option to always turn on those that employ him if they obstruct his goals. However, this does not mean he is evil, he will help those that he loves, he will work with others to accomplish goals, and usually leaves everyone else alone for the most part, unless they get in his way. He grew up in the toughest parts of town, giving him a Warrior level, but once he was imprisoned, his mind degraded just a little, and he became a Barbarian.

Gollum was once a halfling, but through centuries of contact and obsession with the One Ring the taint gleaned from it has shriveled and deformed the creature until he scarcely resembles his heritage.

Gollum weighs 20 lbs. and stands around two and a half feet tall. He speaks Common and Halfling.

Combat
Gollum only fights if cornered or the outcome is drastically in his favor. He prefers to grapple his enemies, strangling them to death.

Enhanced Vision (Ex): Through his worship of the One Ring, Gollum has acquired darkvision out to 60 feet and low-light vision.

Evasion (Ex): Gollum can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If he makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if Gollum is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless Gollum does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Favored Enemy (Ex): Gollum gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks when using these skills against Halflings. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against such creatures.

Sneak Attack (Ex): As rogue's ability, +3d6.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Gollum can react to danger before his senses would normally allow him to do so. He retains his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if he is caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, he still loses his Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.

There's one big trait Rincewind has that I'm going to mention up here so nobody yells at me or anything. Rincewind, despite being a wizard, is totally incapable of magic. This, combined with his extreme cowardice, the fact that he has lots of low-probability events happen to him (a result of his being "favored" by the goddess of Luck, who regrettably grants both good and bad luck, though Rincewind is unaware of his status), and his physical descriptions in the book, make him significantly different from most human wizards.

Rincewind the Wizzard (from the Discworld series, by Terry Pratchett)
Human Male Wizard 3 (probably low, given what he's faced, but meh)
Medium Humanoid (Human)
Hit Dice: 3d4
Initiative: +10
Speed: 40 ft.
AC: 14 (+4 Dex)
Base Attack/Grapple: +0/+0
Attack: Unarmed Strike (1d3)
Full Attack: Unarmed Strike (1d3)
Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft.
Special Attacks: Desperate Flurry(Described below)
Special Qualities: Cannot cast spells, Linguistic skill (described below)
Saves: Fort +1 Ref +8 Will +4
Abilities: Str 10, Dex 18, Con 10, Int 15, Wis 15, Cha 9
Skills: +6 each in Knowledge:(Arcana, History, Local, Religion), Spellcraft
Feats: Run, Cowardice (see below) Flee (see below), The Lady's "Blessing" (see below), Terror (see below), Paranoia (see below), Wizard Sight (see below), Enduring Danger (see below) Dodge, Mobility.
Environment: Prefers Urban (Ankh-Morpork), but may be found anywhere, including other planes
Organization: Whatever he thinks best improves his survival chances
Treasure: a tattered hat with the word "Wizzard" spelled on it in cheap fake gems, value 20sp
CR: 2
Alignment: True Neutral
Advancement: By character class
Level Adjustment: -2

Descriptions
Cannot Cast Spells: Despite technically being a wizard, Rincewind is and always will be completely incapable of casting spells. Even spells like Wish cannot grant him spellcasting powers.
Linguistic Skill: Rincewind is at least semi-fluent in many languages. This allows him to speak with any being who can speak, even if they share no common languages, though if the language the other being is speaking is one Rincewind is not fluent in, there is a -2 penalty to all Bluff, Intimidate, Gather Information, and Diplomacy checks. This trait does not grant Rincewind the ability to read extra languages, only speak them.
Cowardice: Rincewind is a true coward. He will never willingly enter a dangerous situation or environment except to get away from an environment or situation he percieves to be more dangerous. He will not attack if escape or diplomacy is an option.
Desperate Flurry: If Rincewind is forced to fight another humanoid, he automatically uses this. DC 1d20+Dex against opponent's 1d20+lowest save. If Rincewind wins, opponent is incapable of acting on their next turn, but Rincewind is considered to have used up all actions for the remainder of his turn. This only works if Rincewind is unarmed.
Flee: Rincewind gets a +10 bonus to base speed, due to years of experience at bravely running away from dangerous things.
The Lady's "Blessing": When rolling one or more d6, d8, d12, d20, or d100's for any action involving Rincewind, instead roll twice that many. Whichever number is further from 3.5, 4.5, 6.5, 10.5, or 50.5 respectively is considered to be the actual outcome. If they are the same distance away, use the lower number. Additionaly, if there is a chance that any roll would be lethal in any way to Rincewind, but also a chance that it will not, and the result of the roll is lethal to Rincewind, it is rerolled. Continue rerolling until obtaining a result that is nonfatal to Rincewind. If Rincewind ever begins to take advantage of this feat and begin acting invulnerable, he immediately and permanantly loses this feat.
Terror: Rincewind is so used to abject gibbering terror that he is immune to all negative mental effects.
Paranoia: Rincewind is so used to danger that he is ready to run away in an instant. He cannot be caught flat-footed, and he may take 20 on any initiative rolls.
Wizard's Sight: Rincewind can see magic. This allows him to instantly know whether anything or anyone is magical or has access to magic (this includes supernatural or spell-like abilities) but he does not know what kind of magic. Rincewind can also see Death, and gets at least 2 rounds of warning before any potentially lethal event that there will be a potentially lethal event.
Enduring Danger: Rincewind's reflexes have been honed by danger, and he gets a +4 bonus to Ref and, when running from danger, gets a +10 bonus to Constitution checks to allow him to keep running. However, his physical capabilities other than running are pitiful, and his Fort can never be higher than +1

I think I did OK, but I have to go now. Maybe I'll do the Luggage later. Meanwhile, feel free to rip this apart!

I would suggest giving Radar a level in warrior, which anyone in the military should have.

Give Rincewind five levels in my Coward (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?t=53166) class. It was inspired by him.
For the record, Rincewind wasn't totally incapable of magic. He casted all eight spells in the octavo (these were powerful enough to cast a change spell on the world, and thus were probably pretty close to being able to cast themselves), and he casted several during the events of Sourcery (there was a huge excess of magic). There may be others in books I didn't read.

I feel like the problem with this thread is it could be a meta-thread. You could have a thread for characters in Discworld (though that would be better in a forum about the Discworld role playing game (http://www.sjgames.com/discworld/)), another for all the monsters mentioned on askaninja.com, etc.

Jack speaks common.

Combat
Jack Sparrow favors unorthodox fighting styles that mixes skill and confusion, often fighting with a fixed method before reverting to a dirty trick or running. This unpredictability makes him difficult to gauge.

Acrobatic Charge (Ex): As Complete Adventurer, p. 40.

Evasion (Ex): If Jack makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if he is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless Jack does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Luck of the Wind (Ex): As Complete Adventurer, p. 40.

Seamanship (Ex): As Complete Adventurer, p. 39.

Sneak Attack (Ex): As Rogue's ability, +3d6.

Steady Stance (Ex): As Complete Adventurer, p. 40.

Trapfinding (Ex): Jack can use the Search skill to locate traps when the task has a Difficulty Class higher than 20.

Jack can use the Disable Device skill to disarm magic traps. A magic trap generally has a DC of 25 + the level of the spell used to create it.

If Jack beats a trapís DC by 10 or more with a Disable Device check can study a trap, figure out how it works, and bypass it (with his party) without disarming it.

Trap Sense (Ex): Jack has an intuitive sense that alerts him to danger from traps, giving him a +1 bonus on Reflex saves made to avoid traps and a +1 dodge bonus to AC against attacks made by traps.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Jack can react to danger before his senses would normally allow him to do so. He retains his Dexterity bonus to AC (if any) even if he is caught flat-footed or struck by an invisible attacker. However, he still loses his Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.

Compass of Desire
A compass of desire appears as a standard seaman's compass within a hinged wooden box. When opened it's needle points in the direction of the wielder's strongest desire. This does not reveal the nature of the desire, nor does it help one out of a maze. It merely points in a straight-line regardless of distance.

Since you have Jack up there I'm curious to what your interpretation of Davey Jones would be.

Edit: I'm also curious as to if there are any rules anywhere on children, I have a concept and I don't know how to pull the whole 'him-being-ten-years-old' thing.

Possibly, but if you replace a Mind Flayer's evil robe with a Pirate outfit, give him a slightly bigger head, and add some tentacles, you get something that looks like Davy Jones.

EDIT: He also has some sort of Aquatic template that prevents him from going on land. His ship is either a magic item, or he uses well-make forcecages to travel underwater, and Control Winds to make it easier to chase ships. He isn't really FASTER in the wind, he just uses Control Winds.

Isn't there an argument to be made for Jack being Chaotic Good rather than Chaotic Neutral? He's clearly got a code and sense of ethics, even if he often doesn't manage to live up to it?

I guess it depends on how strict you have the alignments...

John Coffey

http://www.the-reel-mccoy.com/movies/1999/images/thegreenmile5.jpg

Human Commoner 5
Medium Humanoid (human, psionic)
Hit Dice: 5d4+40 (52 hp)
Initiative: -1
Speed: 30 ft. (6 squares)
Armor Class: 9 (-1 dex), touch 9, flat-footed 9
Base Attack/Grapple: +2/+11
Attack: Unarmed strike (1d3+5)
Full Attack: Unarmed strike (1d3+5)
Space/Reach: 5 ft./5 ft.
Special Attacks: Ill command, psi-like abilities
Special Qualities: Cursed with life, great empathy, strapping, takin' it back
Saves: Fort +9, Ref +0, Will +6
Abilities: Str 20, Dex 9, Con 26, Int 6, Wis 17, Cha 13
Skills: Heal +12
Feats: Endurance, Improved Grapple(B), Improved Unarmed Strike, Iron Will
Challenge Rating: 4
Treasure: None
Alignment: Neutral Good

John Coffey is a great, strapping man over six and a half feet tall and several hundred pounds. He is naturally bald and hairless and horrible scars mar his dark skin in places. His mournful, blood-shot eyes continuously leak tears as if from silent sobs. He is dressed in a shirt and overalls several sizes too small, exposing his barrel chest and rising halfway up his calves. He stands barefoot, his feet gnarled and calloused.

John Coffey's origins are an enigma. He himself cannot remember from where he hailed, but as his mind is as simple as a child's and even more prone to forgetfulness, this is not surprising. His is a gentle, confused soul that knows all the world's suffering, but retains an innocence despite it.

Combat
John is almost unknown to fight, instead running from those that would harm him. Those that he senses of particular vileness however he remains watchful, and is capable of infecting with self-destructive impulses.

Cursed With Life (Su): Once per day, if he wishes, John can sacrifice 1 point of his constitution with a touch to give another permanently. Those that receive this point gain a +6 bonus to saves against disease and poison. As well, after this point they age only half again as fast as they did before.

Great Empathy (Ps): John continuously senses the emotions around him as the Empathy power, though it's range extends to 1,000 feet. He need not see those emoting to sense their emotions, but also cannot pinpoint their exact location until within 5 feet.

He also continuously senses strong emotions left behind as the Sensitivity to Psychic Impressions power, manifester level 5th. He may even sense highly emotional scenes off of people, such as those they have loved, hated, or even killed. He must touch them to sense impressions off living creatures.

Ill Command (Su): If John has successfully grappled his victim he may attempt to infect them with any disease he has taken inside himself. His opponent must make a save at the original DC or gain the illness.

John can choose infect the victim's mind with a command to perform a single deed as he is transmitting the disease, the command lasting as long as they remain infected or until they carry out the command, whichever comes first. This acts as the Dominate spell, except they can be commanded to perform a deed they would not otherwise do.

Once John has released the disease he is no longer infected and any ability damage or drain is healed.

Psi-like Abilities: Manifest level 5th.
At will - Read Thoughts.

Strapping (Ex): John is immune to non-supernatural poisons and disease.

Takin' It Back (Su): John may heal any wound with a touch, at a rate of 1d4 hit points per round as long as he is in contact. He may also heal any non-supernatural disease and any ability damage sustained from it as a full-round action. Once John has healed another he must spend a full-round action to release the pain and hurt he has swallowed, which takes the form of a regurgitated swarm of fly-like creatures that quickly fade into nothingness.

John can only hold one person's hurt at a time and cannot heal again until he has released the hurt. He may keep within him a disease he has taken for as long as he wishes, though automatically contract it himself. This bypasses his normal immunity to disease.

Turns out I've got quite a few here...

[hr]
Ghost Blades
Evocation [Force]
Level: Brd 4
Components: V, S, F
Casting Time: 1 Full-round action
Range: Close (25 ft. +5 ft/2 levels
Target: Any creature or object, Maximum one target per blade
Duration: Instantaneous
Saving Throw: None
Spell Resistance: Yes

This is a rather complex and malleable combat spell for the Bard.

A wave of ghostly blades shoot forth from your instrument upon the playing of a certain combination of chords.

The spell fires one additional blade beyond the first per two caster levels beyond 7th, with a maximum of 6 blades at 17th level or higher. The blades make a normal attack, dealing a base of 1d10 sonic slashing damage each, with a crit range of 20. although a high perform check can change that:

The bard makes a perform check with a stringed instrument. The roll on the check affects the power and accuracy of the blades as follows:

The spell requires a result of 15 or higher, or the blades fail to reach their target.
On a result of 20, the blades become magic weapons. A result of 20 gives them +1, increasing by 1 per 4 points higher, +2 at 24, +3 at 28, +4 at 32, etc, with a maximum of +10 at 60.

These points can give the blades magic effects as chosen by the Bard.


This is still quite confusingly worded. Let me give examples.

If the Bard makes a 32 on his perform check, he gets a +4 bonus. He could simply give his blades an enhancement bonus of +4, affecting hit, damage, and DR.

He could also however give his blades the 'flaming' ability, which is listed as equivalent to +1 in the DMG. That would make the blades +3 flaming weapons.

He could then add the "wounding" ability for a cost of +2, making the blades into '+1 flaming, wounding' ghost blades.

Focus: A stringed instrument

"Let me remind you, sonny, I am a general. If you are counting on me to blink, then you are making a deadly mistake!"
-Roth'h'ar Sarris, Primarch General

Fatu-Krey
http://www.alicia-logic.com/capsimages/gq_042.jpg

Fatu-Krey are a vicious race, hunting down and exterminating others in an attempt to gain power and for their own entertainment. They live as one society, pledging their servitude to the current Primarch General.
Personality: Fatu-Krey are extremely ruthless and vile. Most enjoy the pain of others, often torturing their victims and prisoners for entertainment. Individually most Fatu-Krey are violent and quick to anger.
Physical Description: Fatu-Krey are about the same average height as a human, typically slightly above between 5 and 6 feet tall. Fatu-Krey are somewhat heavier though, usually weighing from 150 to 250 pounds. Their skin ranges from a pale green to a dark brown green, but regardless is much thicker and harder than the average creatures' flesh. They usually wear clothing that demonstrates the Fatu-Krey ideology of military efficiency and intimidation, mostly dark and functional equipment and armor. Most Fatu-Krey also sport a multitude of battle-scars and militaristic markings or piercings.

Fatu-Krey Primarchs stand about half a foot taller than your average Fatu-Krey, with some physical additions that make them stand out at any time, primarily their stronger, nearly plated skin, the bent protrusions from the top of their head, and the bladed flaps on the base of their back which flip upward when they are angered.
Relations: The Fatu-Krey are an extremely violent race, and their relations with other races are usually simply a direct attempt and genocide or enslavement. Sometimes the Fatu-Krey will make an alliance with another species, if decreed by the Primarch General.
Alignment: Almost all Fatu-Krey are evil, however on they vary greatly on the Lawful-Chaotic scale of alignment, falling into all three possibilities, although more are prone to chaos.
Fatu-Krey Lands: The Fatu-Krey do not take territory, usually roaming as a nomadic army, conquering a territory, enslaving or slaughtering its inhabitants, then stripping the land of all useful materials to expand and upgrade the equipment of the army before moving on.
Religion: Fatu-Krey worship their Primarch General as their only deific figure. They care not for others' religion, paying no attention to the gods of their victims.
Language: Fatu-Krey speak their own language, Kren. It is a quick language of hisses and clicks, good for easy communication between soldiers, another example of the military efficiency their entire culture is based around.
Names: Fatu-Krey names are guttural and vile, usually somewhat disjointed and including hissing noises often.
Adventurers: There are very few Fatu-Krey adventurers, and those that are are generally small groups sent out by the Primarch General for a specific purpose of benefit to the army.

Favored class: Barbarian


Snap-Tongs and Tri-Blades
The Snap-tong and Tri-blade weapons are used by both the Fatu-Krey and the demon soldiers known as Rutterkin. It is unknown which of the two groups first developed the weapons, although the comparison of their species show a very similar personality and to some extent, appearance.

{table=head]Weapon|Cost|Damage|Critical|Range Incr.|Weight|Type

Snap-tong|
100 gp|
1d10|
2x|
-|10 lb.|Piercing

Tri-Blade|
35 gp|
2d4|
2x|
20 ft.|3 lb.|Slashing[/table]

Snap-tong: This short polearm ends in a sharp spike that has one or more crescent-shaped pincers designed close around it. A proficient wielder that hits an opponent of at least one size category smaller can attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. If the wielder gets a hold, the snap-tong grabs the opponent and deals 1d10 points of damage (plus the wielder's Strength modifier) each round the hold is maintained.
Tri-blade: This thrown weapon consists of a three-bladed wedge launched from a slinglike device. Versatile Fatu-Krey soldiers usually carry five of these for use in ranged combat, although in more organized assaults the weapons may be split up for specific squads.

Bolt of Reckoning
Evocation (Electricity)
Level: Drd 9
Components: V, S, F, M, Xp
Area: 0-12 miles, 50ft diameter lightning, 100ft diameter fire, 15 mile diameter sonic
Range: 0-12 miles.
Casting Time: 10 rounds (see focus)
Duration: Lightning instantaneous, fire 4 rounds, sonic instantaneous: travels 1 miles/round.
Saving Throw: Lightning: Save or disintegration, doubled DC. Fire: none. Sonic: fortitude for deafness, reflex (object).
Spell Resistance: Yes (separate for lightning, fire, and sonic)

Bolt of Reckoning sends a massive lightning bolt 50 feet thick slamming into the ground 1d4 x 3 miles in a direction of the casters choice, after a percentile roll is made:

1-3%: lightning hits caster directly, 4-10%: lightning hits 50-100 feet in a random direction (d8) instead of the 1d4 x 3 miles distance.

This results in three effects:

The bolt instantly vaporizes anything hit by it, double DC fortitude save for 15d8 damage instead.

Second, in a 100 foot diameter from the center striking point, there is a blast wave of fire, dealing 1d6 damage per caster level, maximum 15d6.

Thirdly, a massive wave of sonic blasts out in a 15 mile diameter from the striking point, traveling one mile every round, if the lightning strikes 10 miles away, it will take 10 rounds before the wave hits the caster. The sonic wave permanently deafens anything with ears, unless a fortitude save is made. If the save is made, the subject is still deafened for 2d6 rounds. Permanent deafness can be cured by regeneration. The sonic wave also deals 1d6 damage per caster levels, maximum 15d6 to beings. Any crystalline or brittle object takes 1d10 damage per caster level, any other breakable object takes 1d8 hit points of damage per caster level.

Material Component: A tangible piece of something at least 1 cubic inch in size, that was killed by a bolt of natural lightning (not lightning bolt the spell, not a druids control weather, actual natural lightning).

Focus: A clearly visible (to the caster) body part (of the caster) burning steadily with non-magical fire. This fire deals 1 damage per round, and unless stopped in some way, will spread over the casterís body, increasing in damage each of the 10 rounds of casting time. (Round one: 1 dmg. Round two: 1 dmg. Round three: 1d2 dmg. Round four: 1d3 dmg. Round five: 1d4 dmg. Round six: 1d6 dmg. Round seven: 1d6 dmg. Round eight: 1d8 dmg. Round nine: 1d8 dmg. Round ten: 1d8 dmg. This fire continues to burn for 1d8 damage every round afterwards until put out.)

Immunity to Magic (Ex)

A bronze golem is immune to any spell or spell-like ability that allows spell resistance. In addition, certain spells and effects function differently against the creature, as noted below.

A magical attack that deals fire damage breaks any slow effect on the golem and heals 1 point of damage for each 2 points of damage the attack would otherwise deal. If the amount of healing would cause the golem to exceed its full normal hit points, it gains any excess as temporary hit points. For example, a bronze golem hit by a fireball gains back 9 hit points if the damage total is 18 points. An bronze golem gets no saving throw against fire effects.

A bronze golem is not affected by rust attacks, such as that of a rust monster or a rusting grasp spell.


A bronze golemís body is sculpted from 4,000 pounds of bronze, smelted with rare tinctures and admixtures costing at least 6,000 gp. Assembling the body requires a DC 20 Craft (armorsmithing) check or a DC 20 Craft (weaponsmithing) check.

I posted this to my Livejournal, where it got decent reviews from the Dungeons & Dragons crowd, but not here. Rockpuppy used to be the mascot of Gaia Online, and has appeared in a few of the website's 4komas.

I tried to stat Grunny, too, but it is awfully hard to balance a carnivorous killer rabbit whose victims rise as zombies, especially now since the MMO game has made them intelligent enough to build and use attack submarines.

This creature looks kind of sort of like a bunch of gray rocks trying to pretend to be a dog. Upon seeing you, it stumbles up goodnaturedly and makes an absurd whistling "fwee" noise. Maybe it wants to play with you?

These comical canines have developed stony armor to protect themselves against native Gaian predators like the Grunny.

Rockpuppies are as dense mentally as they are physically, relying on their impenetrable bodies to keep them safe and tending to respond to almost anything with friendliness and their distinctive "fwee" noise, which makes them endearing and popular pets amongst many humanoids.

Combat:
Rockpuppies very rarely get provoked to actual combat. They see most creature's attacks as attempts to play with them. When they ARE angered, Rockpuppies' heavy headbutts can prove to be more than a match for all but the most stalwart opponents.

Heavyset: Rockpuppies' squat shape, weight, and low center of gravity grant them a +2 racial bonus on Balance checks. Rockpuppies cannot be tripped.

Familiars:
A wizard or sorcerer with the Improved Familiar feat can have a Rockpuppy as a familiar.

Combat
Adam does not fight. When threatened, Adam's response is to summon Buster and utilize his Run Like Hell ability to escape.

Run Like Hell (Su): If threatened (targeted by a spell, in a threatened square, in an area of effect or similar) Adam's base speed increases by 20 ft per round.

Summon Buster (Su): Adam can summon Buster, at will, in any adjacent square. Once summoned, Buster cannot be resummoned for 1 day or until repaired.

Build Anything (Su): Given 12 hours Adam can build any medium sized object out of availible materials, within reason. Given plans and materials, it takes 6 hours. Jamie is treated as having masterwork tools for any craft check that does not require delicate work, and can take 20 on craft checks he has built before.

Quote (Ex): Adam can quote a line from any movie or previous encounter at will. This has a demoralizing effect, and all within earshot take a -2 to craft, profession and fort saves.

Anything You Can Do (Su): If engaged in a competition, Adam can add the level of his opponent as a bonus to any checks he makes.
