Pounced Hee-na Fee-ya-os-ee
Made by Lanth Sor with Editorial Assistance of EdinoiZ


Personality: As humans however their line of work and the rigors leading them to power often destroy any innocence or drive them to madness.

Physical Description: As human only with hair and eyes of an unusual coloration often even bestial in nature.

Relations: They tend to be part of secret or secluded organizations focused on protecting surrounding populace as monster hunters or the like.

Alignment: Due to their lean toward structure lawful is the most common alignment but depending on reason for gaining the power alignments can vary as much as humans.

Lands: Only the lands they build the keeps and guild halls. As they are made and not born their reproduction occurs almost exclusively through induction of new members leading to little need for more than a small keep.

Religion: Religious practices can be wide and varied just like normal humans, its not uncommon to have one organization be a sub set of the church while another is the filled with grizzled men that damn the gods.

Language: What ever language they spoke before the transformation.


Racial Traits:
Ability Scores: +2 Str, +2 Dex, +2 Con, -2 Cha
Type Aberration (Augmented, Human)
Sharp Senses: +2 perception(Spot and Listen for 3.5) and low-light vision
The Anathema: A Daonna'Feabhsaithe counts a Humanoid (augmented, human) and an Aberration for all effects that are related to race or type.
Slayer of Monsters: You take a -4 penalty to charisma based checks against and checks to interact peacefully with creatures of the following types: Aberration, Magical Beast, Monstrous Humanoid, Outsiders(excluding Native subtype), and Undead. These creatures also have a tendency to single you out, gaining a +2 bonus to hit and damage against you as the very core of their being rails against the Anathema.These penalties do not apply to other Daonna'Feabhsaithe regardless of path.
Lesser Regeneration: For every hour spent resting a Daonna'Feabhsaithe heals as if it had spent an entire night resting. This is a special form of Fast Healing that only activates upon resting. If a body part is cut off it can be held in place long enough for the damage to heal the limb will reattach.
Metabolism on Overdrive: You require twice the amount of daily food for a creature of your size and begin to feel the effects of starvation in half the time a normal creature would. As a natural consequence of this you count as two people when using the Survival skill to try and "live of the land" and any Ring of Sustenance or similar magic item requires a magic seal or something similar that augments the effect of such items. This increases the gp cost of such items by +35%.
Level Adjustment: +0(human only, the traits repalce human traits)(+2 as template for nonhumans)


Forged in the Sins of the Few [Source]
Prerequisite: Daonna'Feabhsaithe, One Mythos, Path of the Aberration
Benefit: After preforming the final "heresy", implantation of alien biomass in your form. Unlocking the potential of the mutation they started.

Choose one Mythos-granting class that you have levels in. You may treat the following Mythos as if they belonged to that class.

The eternal scar of their power. A massive scar from the surgery reaching from groin to neck that will never heal and is held shut by sutures. The sudden reveal provides a +2 to a demoralize check as the pure evil of the mark sets in. The scar provides a -2 penalty to all charisma based skill checks toward anyone who is aware of it. Additionally upon implantation they chooses one of the following representing the strongest will present in them.

Will to Survive(Defensive Type): The will to Survive is the will to defend oneself to survive. This is one of the most common types next to Will to Destroy.
Will to Destroy(Offensive Type): The will to destroy is found in the will to kill or defeat the enemy to survive. This is one of the most common types next to Will to Survive.
Will to Discover(Utility Type): The will to discover represents the will to find and know all of the enemy. This is the most uncommon will to be the strongest, very few Daonna'Feabhsaithe exist that fall into this category.

Special: You may not have any other Source feat.



Breaking Bread With Insanity
Prerequisite: The Monster Inside

As a swift action you can partial release into a specific body part granting that body part alone the full benefit of release at a reduced threat of awakening. The mutation point accrual is the same as a normal Surge but the DC to end a partial release is 5+1/8 mutation points. Each basic manifestation represents mastery of infusing a single body part.

Basic
Arm Release: When preforming actions with arms they gain full effects of the release. This includes all changes applied by the increased ability scores, this does not provide the benefit to actions preformed by the rest of the body. Releasing a single arm halves the accrual of mutation points.
Leg Release: When preforming actions with legs they gain full effects of the release. This includes all changes applied by the increased ability scores, this does not provide the benefit to actions preformed by the rest of the body. Releasing a single leg halves the accrual of mutation points.
Senses: When preforming actions with eyes or ears they gain full effects of the release. This includes all changes applied by the increased ability scores, this does not provide the benefit to actions preformed by the rest of the body. Releasing a single only eyes or only ears halves the accrual of mutation points.

Master Self; Master Monster
Prerequisite: The Monster Inside

Through training and focus you unlock hidden potential in your new form.
Will to Survive(Defensive Type): Gain Toughness, Improved Toughness and Roll With It as bonus feats. You no longer require 20 con to take the Roll With It feat. Roll With It can be found in Savage Species.Additionally every Mythos Tier past exceptional they gain an iteration of the Roll With It.
Will to Destroy(Offensive Type): Gains +1 to hit and +10ft base speed to all modes of movement. And increases by 1 and 10 respectively per Mythos Tier of the class, IE Fantastic +2 and +20ft, legendary +3 and +30ft.
Will to Discover(Utility Type): Gain the knowledge devotion feat only for the purpose of the feet you may preform a sense essence check to determine the benefits of the knowledge devotion.

The Monster Inside
Prerequisite: Thing From Beyond Inside

The Anathema inside a Daonna'Feabhsaithe is the source of their abilities, a biological system that grants many abilities. And as many such systems it can surge at highly elevated levels for a short time, though it comes at a risk. Activating the surge as a swift action they increase their Racial Bonus to all Ability Scores by +4, gain a +2 Racial Bonus to Natural Armor, a benefit based on Chosen Will(shown below) and Fast Healing X where X is equal to one half (1/2) of their Constitution Modifier. The risk of surging the Anathema is that it begins to grow in strength and once strong enough it will attempt to gain complete control of the body. You have a pool of Mutation Points and while surging you accrue mutation points at a rate of (26 - character level) per round. Ending the surge is another Swift Action (or Standard Action if you are somehow prevented from taking Swift Actions) that requires a successful Will Save of DC 5 + 1/4th of the accrued mutation points. If a Daonna'Feabhsaithe's pool of mutation points ever reach a total of 80 or more they lose control and begin transforming into an Awakened Being. Those beginning the process of transforming into Awakened Beings can attempt a Will Save DC 10+Awakened Beings CR to halt the transformation. On the round following the transformation you may make a will save to revert. After ending a surge you lose a number of mutation points per minute equal to one half (1/2) your character level or the highest of your Mental Ability Score Modifiers, whichever is higher. Should you Surge again before your pool of mutation points reaches 0 you gain a Mutation Marker; a visible but minor physical change that makes you look more bestial or alien. For each Mutation Marker the rate at which you accrue mutation points increases by +1 and decrease the rate at which you lose mutation points by -1 (to a minimum of 0). You lose all accrued Mutation Markers after your pool of mutation points reaches 0 or after a number of hours of rest equal to your accrued Mutation Markers, whichever comes first.

Will to Survive(Defensive Type): While surging Defensive Types, do not gain fast healing but instead gain Regeneration X where X is equal to their Constitution Modifier while surging, this regeneration cannot be overcome. Any limbs that started to regenerate while in this mode continue to do so at (20/con mod) times the normal time it would take to regenerate the limb.
Will to Destroy(Offensive Type): While surging their melee attacks gain a +4 to hit and when ever they attack they add 2d6 to their strength modifier bonus damage before multipying and take 1d6 damage from the rending of their muscles due to the power of their attacks.
Will to Discover(Utility Type): While surging they gain a +10 bonus to checks tied to the Sense Essence feat, and base ranges for Essence abilities are multiplied by five instead of doubled, and all effects that normally require swift actions now require a free action, and anything requiring an action greater than swift requires a swift action.

Should someone with whom you have a significant connection attempt to pull you out of an awakened state you make remake the save. The DC increases by 1 for evey day spent in an awakened state.

Awakened Beings are unique and varied based on the individual. An awakened being at the vary minimum should have a CR equal to Character level +15, but no less then CR 25. Awakened Beings loose their original type and subtypes and become pure aberrations. Their abilities spawn from both the Daonna'Feabhsaithe own abilities which must be included in the final product and their ambitions. Some time the major desires that lead them to taking up the path become the very things they destroy first as they descend into madness. Other times vengeance is the first thing on the awakened beings mind. Their is no precedent for these monsters save the horrifying fact that their awakening almost assuredly ends in all their companions death.

Some input on the awakened beings, they should lose the human subtype upon transforming.

2016-01-14, 01:55 PM
Ok so I think I have it almost done the last part I'm struggling with is a way to emulate their strange techniques. But I debate on if I should leave that to classes like Epifovian and Bellator.

2016-01-15, 01:42 AM
Their techniques should probably be gotten through those classes, yes.

EDIT: Though I do believe that the Will to Destroy should get a racial bonus to their movement speed at some point?
