View Full Version : Pathfinder [Archetype] Shifter Extremist (Ex-Shifter)

2017-11-20, 04:12 PM

Through acquired interest or frequent contact with forces from the outer planes, some shifters find they can no longer remain neutral as they are drawn to one of the four most extreme alignments. No longer capable of assuming the forms of natural beasts, these shifter extremists find themselves capable of becoming like unto celestials or fiends, coming to wield the might of the Outer Plane most associated with their new stance.

This is an ex-class archetype and can be taken by a character immediately upon becoming an ex-shifter

Alignment: A shifter extremist must have an alignment of chaotic evil, chaotic good, lawful evil, or lawful good.
This alters the shifter's alignment.
Aura (Ex): The shifter extremist radiates an aura matching her alignment as if she were a cleric of her shifter level.
Planar Claws (Ex): A shifter extremist's claws are infused with the power of the outer planes. At 1st level, a shifter extremist's claws are treated as their alignment (chaotic and evil, chaotic and good, lawful and evil, or lawful and good) for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction.
This alters shifter claws.
Lesser Planar Aspect (Su): At 1st level, a shifter extremist can temporary take on the aspects of outsiders befitting their alignment as a swift action. While in this state, the shifter extremist gains the base evolutions granted to unchained eidolon of a type based on their alignment: Chaotic evil gains demon, chaotic good gains Azata, lawful evil gains devil, and lawful good gains archon. A shifter extremist can maintain this form for 1 minute per day per level.
Starting at 9th level, when a shifter extremist uses this ability, she also gains the 4th level benefits granted to eidolons of her chosen type. At 14th level, she also gains the 8th level ability granted to eidolons of her chosen type. Upon reaching 20th level, she also acquires the 12th and 16th level abilities granted to eidolons of her chosen type. In all instances where evolution points are granted by one of these benefits, what evolutions these are spent on must be selected upon gaining the evolution and cannot be changed except after gaining a new level. These evolutions only manifest while using lesser planar aspect.
This replaces shifter aspect, chimeric aspect, greater chimeric aspect, and final aspect.
Planar Aspect (Su): At 4th level, as a standard action, a shifter extremist can gain the benefits of the bloodrager bloodline associated with her alignment (Abyssal, Celestial, or Infernal), as if she were a bloodrager of her shifter level. She can gain these benefits for 1 minute per shifter level as if she were bloodraging (but she gains no other benefits or penalites of bloodrage) or until she dismisses it as a swift action. This duration need not be used consecuitively but must be spent in 1-minute increments. She can use this ability an additional time per day at 6th level and every 4 levels thereafter, for a total of 5 times per day at 18th level. At 20th level, a shifter extremist can use planar aspect at will.
This replaces wildshape.

As I am sure you can tell, the shifter is a class heavily based on the druid and so I decided it would be fun to make for them a version of the Planar Extremist (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/classes/core-classes/druid/archetypes/paizo-druid-archetypes/planar-extremist-ex-druid-archetype/).
