    Default Snuggles and the 'Cat Pantheon' [Requires aid]

    First, I'll note that this thread will require aid in finishing. It is here that the truth may be known to all. Those who would delude themselves with worshiping Rex or other such inferior beings are not welcome here. Due to my general lack of skill at homebrew, I would request assistance in the stating of vestiges, selection/creation of domains, and stating of avatars (and in Snuggles' case, avatars of his avatars). Corrections on content are welcome, but those that have been tricked into believing Cat and Good cat will be ignored (except in corrections concerning the false belief of said entities).

    Now then. After studying this thread and the truths it holds. I have been able to ascertain these facts of the origin of the Cat Pantheon. If you note errors, feel free to inform me and I will decide if you are worth listening to.

    THE ORIGIN OF THE CAT PANTHEON
    In the beginning there was Snuggles. However, Snuggles was bored with the nothing, so he created existence to hunt in and the gods to be his prey.
    But the gods feared Snuggles and so they fled creating planes to hide in and creatures to populate them in hopes of distracting the Dark Lord Snuggles. Some went so far as to create creatures in Snuggles' own image in hopes of currying favor with him.
    For a time, all this pleased Snuggles, but soon he again began to grow bored. For Snuggles enjoys playing with his food, and all knew that if they had become his prey it was useless to resist. As such Snuggles decided to take on eight guises, which were known as Cuddles, Leoparddles, Bengal Tigger, Lionddles, Wuggles, Couggles, Siberian Tigger, and Pantheggles. Each represented a different alignment from his own natural Chaotic Evil and allowed him to better play with his prey, giving them false hope and able to take it away at any time if ever he got tired of playing with them. Upon taking up these guises, Snuggles decided on a whim to commemorate the event by granting cats, which one of the long killed gods had made in his image, eight extra lives.
    Soon after many came to worship the Cat Pantheon, though only cats knew of its true nature as guises of Snuggles. This worship however soon brought into being a tenth guise of Snuggles, for like all cats, when given much catnip Snuggleswould forget himself and become frisky. When in such a state he would forget such things as good and evil and become Primordial Elder Cat, destroying and creating planes on a whim with no rhyme or reason.
    And so all guises of Snuggles gained worshipers and the Cat Pantheon was created. Only cats knowing its true form which they hide from most others. Worshiping whichever guise suits them knowing it matters not for all worship will got to Dark Lord Snuggles.

    Note: All Cat Gods can give themselves (or remove from themselves) the titanic template at will.

    Description: Snuggles appears to be a black house cat that has its right eye replaced with a Shield brooch, and its tongue replaced with a Wand of Isaac's Greater Missile Storm, and is wearing a collar of True Resurrection. His left eye can cast Disintegrate at will.
    Snuggles doesn't need to see, Snuggles can smell your fear, and hear your screams for pain after the greater missile storm lands. Assuming you live. You won't live. But, Snuggles is not without mercy. Snuggles wears a collar of True Resurrection. Snuggles is also not without a sick sense of sadism. He raises you, only to kill you again. Snuggles is adorable, lethally so, all who sees Snuggles' normal form must must succeed on a will save or have their body reduced to pink fluff. Snuggles doesn't sleep, he waits. Dark lord snuggles dines only on Epic Salmon canned in infernal bronze, the only can opener worthy of his attention is a holy avenger, which he uses as a toothpick after dining first on your charred corpse, and then on the salmon at his leisure. Those who disturb his catnaps shall suffer DISINTEGRATION! But not before being toyed with. Snuggles is Master of the Schrödinger Domain, allowing him to be simultaneously fractured and whole, dead and alive, all powerful.
    As far as snuggles is concerned, there are only 2 types of people:
    1) those of us blessed with the knowledge that he will be our death
    2) those who are in for a bit of a surprise
    Snuggles enjoys playing with his food, so much so that he gathers worshipers to his other aspects for greater entertainment when he inevitably turns upon them.

    Alignment: Neutral Good
    Gender: Male

    Description: Leoparddles or Leo as he's often referred to is the most laid back of the Cat Gods. He appears as a spotted cat whose right eye casts Sublime revelry and whose left eye casts righteous glare at will as spell-like abilities. His message is to experience and enjoy life and to try to understand new ways of doing so whilst helping those who cannot enjoy life and casting out those whose enjoyment comes at the expense of others. Any individual whom he breathes on is subject to a greater vigor spell. He enjoys lying in sun-beams and eats different tasty treats every day. He can smell misery and seeks to eliminate its source.

    Bengal Tigger
    Symbol: A licked kitten (Needs image)
    Alignment: Chaotic Good
    Gender: Female
    Portfolio: Protection, mothering, kindness, love (mostly but not only of the platonic kind), generosity, affection, comfort

    Cleric Alignments: Any Good
    Domains: Good, Cat, Protection, Animal, and Pie
    Favored Weapon: Net (She creates her's from hairballs)
    Titles: Good Cat, Mother Cat unto Snuggles, Good Cat Mistress
    Description: Bengal Tigger whom is most often refereed to by her title "Good Cat" appears as a tortoiseshell house cat except when she is in titanic form whereupon she is orange with black stripes. Due to her mastery of puns in any language, her tortoiseshell fur also acts as natural armor. She radiates an aura of calm emotions and anyone who looks at her left eye is affected by a charm monster spell, realizing that she is a being of perfection and cuteness whom must not be harmed. Her right eye allows her to cast any abjuration spell or mage amour on a target she looks at even if the target of the spell is normally self or the range touch. She can do this at will as a spell-like ability. Although she wears the Collar of True Resurrection common to all Cat Gods, like her brother Couggles, she doesn't really like the conformity of uniforms and thus uses prestidigitation to alter its appearance multiple times a day. As mistress of the Pie domain she has ultimate control of Pie and its delicious goodness. She can create and destroy pies at will and can deny an individual (even Cat Gods) the ability to make pies by any means and can fill the efforts of the most inept baker with wholesome flavor or ruin pies baked by the greatest of professionals. Her desire for peace and harmony often put her at odds with Snuggles and they bicker more than any other pair of Cat Gods. She often denies Snuggles pie as a method of voicing her disapproval. She is often refereed to as the mother of the pantheon. This is not literal motherhood (all Cat Gods are siblings (actually guises of Snuggles, but few know that)) yet she takes the role of the mother as nurturer, voicer of disapproval and appeaser of Cuddles' strictness.

    Lionddles
    Symbol: Black mane with crown above it.
    Alignment: Lawful Neutral
    Gender: Male
    Portfolio: Authority, order, pride (both meanings), law, heirarchy, the superiority of cats over other species.
    Worshipers: Worshipers: Judges, rulers, lawful organisations, all who wish to emulate the pride.
    Cleric Alignments: Lawful individuals whom have completed the necessary forms and bureaucratic procedures.
    Domains: Animal, Cat, City, Community, Destiny, Domination, Fate, Law, Nobility, Oracle, Pact, Planning
    Favored Weapon: Quarterstaff (His cold iron staff of ruler ship with which he shall crush rebels)
    Titles: His Awesomeness, Lord of the Pride, His Mightiness, Grand High Ruler of All He Sees, The Maned One, etc.
    Description: Lionddles appears as an axiomatic brown cat with a mane of black hair that does not contain a single strand out of place. He goes everywhere with at least a pair of servants who fan him and carry his crown and staff. He has placed diamond studs around his collar of True Resurrection. He is an arrogant individual whom expects all to conform to his wishes. However, he is a fair lord, wishing for all to have a place in the kingdom of cats. His right eye is the Cateye of Ruler ship and casts all enchantment spells at will as spell-like abilities and his left eye is the Cateye of Control which casts a version of telekinesis with no cap at 120th level as a spell-like ability at will. He can also roar which does sonic damage and causes fear and deafness.

    Domains: Animal, Cat, Mind, Oracle, Plant, Protection, Travel, Weather
    Favored Weapon: Claws
    Titles: The Truest of Cats, Queen of Cat Dominion, Mistress of Felinekind
    Description: Wuggles appears as a brown cat with a green left eye that casts baleful polymorph at will as a spell-like ability and a yellow right eye that casts confusion at will as a spell-like ability. She can smell stubbornness and can breath sleep-gas. She teaches that all must be true to their nature and to never dismiss another. In fact, she encourages others to try to experience life the way others do in order to fully realize what ones true nature is. She also teaches that all have a purpose in their true nature and as such, none must try to change another. She hunts when she feels like it and eats whatever she catches for that is the way that was meant to be.

    Siberian Tigger
    Symbol: Cat tail dripping blood
    Alignment: Lawful Evil
    Gender: Female
    Portfolio: Slavery, tyranny, the working of the lessor races to death to glorify cats as superior beings
    Worshipers: Slavers, evil employers, fascist governments, narcissists
    Cleric Alignments: Lawful Evil, Neutral Evil and a small minority of Lawful Neutral
    Domains: Animal, Cat, Cold, Death, Destruction, Domination, Evil, Fire, Hatred, Law, Tyrant, Weather
    Favored Weapon: Her tail (which is considered an unholy axiomatic vicious whip)
    Titles: Queen of the Slavers, Mistress of Tyranny, Grand High Duchess of Cat Superiority
    Description: Siberian Tigger normally appears as a skinny siamese cat. She can smell pity. However, in titanic form she is muscular and orange with black stripes. Her right eye can cast geas as a spell-like ability at will and her left eye can cast wrack as a spell-like ability at will. Her eyes are yellow and flash when she uses their power. Her unusually long and thin tail is used to whip her many slaves into submission and she breathes hellfire. Siberian Tigger is very vain forcing slaves to do all her work and build monuments in her image or to her glory. She believes that all other cats should follow her example in this. She has absolute control of the temperature in her surroundings and her footprints either freeze or catch fire. When in a bad mood, she turns the surroundings into a barren desert of nothing but sand or a frozen wasteland. She also spends a lot of time polymorphed into lesser species to search for new slaves.


    Pantheggles
    Symbol: A cat's shadow with red glowing eyes
    Alignment: Neutral Evil
    Gender: Female
    Portfolio: Nekocatsy, magic, pain, fear, undead, rodents, plagues, disease, filth, despair, negative energy
    Worshipers: Undead, nihilists, sadists, masochists, those whom consider their lifetime to be to short to serve cats
    Cleric Alignments: Any Evil
    Domains: Animal, Cat, Death, Destruction, Evil, Magic, Pestilence
    Favored Weapon: Bite (her teeth count as unholy and poisoned)
    Titles: The Dark Queen, Mistress of Nekocatsy, The Plague Bearer, Bringer of Fleas, Harbinger of Ticks, Lady of the Undead Rodent Army, Mistress of Despair, Queen of Negative Energy, Black Death
    Description: Pantheggles appears as a black cat with red eyes. Her left eye act as a symbol of pain and her right eye as a symbol of fear. The area around her is considered unhallowed and negative-dominant. Her breath does negative-energy damage and her fur releases disease and parasites. No healing magic works near her and all near her risk disease even if she does not wish to fight. She is considered incorporeal when it suits her. She likes to hunt, kill her prey, take a couple of bites out of it and create undead from the remains. She is the creator of undead, the first of which were rodents (most of hers still are). As such, she is considered the Mistress of Nekocatsy. Of course the schools name has been altered by the humanoids. They replaced "cat" with "man", added an "r" and changed the spelling and pronunciation. She can smell joy and loves to spread misery, disease and death.

    Cat

    Alignment: All
    Gender: Any it desires to be
    Portfolio: Everything that cats have dominion over. ie. everything

    Cleric Alignments: Any
    Domains: All offered by any Cat God
    Favored Weapon: Kick
    Titles: There is only CAT and that is all that will do CAT justice.
    Description: CAT appears as a black and white cat with yellow, glowing eyes. CAT has all the combined added and synergised powers of the entire cat pantheon. CAT has all alignments and is always treated as the alignment most convenient to CAT. Pronouns are never used when referring to CAT as they do not allow CAT'S awesomeness to be expressed. CAT is not likely to be encountered as CAT usually spends CAT'S time spit up into the cat pantheon. Little else is known or understood about CAT as the times that CAT has displayed CATSELF to humanity are rare and leave few witnesses.

    • In the beginning was the Primordial. And the Primordial was with Cat. And the Primordial was Cat. And so it came to pass that, upon looking out at the Nothing and Emptyness and Void surrounding it, Cat was filled with a great Emptyness, and so strove to fill the Emptyness with it's Unknowable Feline. From Cat's Unknowable Feline, nine aspects were forged, one from each part of Cat's Unknowable ethics. From each aspect there arose a great yowel, and from the yowel all things that were, are, and shall ever come to be were made.

      From the Litter, there were two in Opposition, and they were called Snuggles, for it was Great and Unknowable in it's devouring rage, and Good Cat, for it was Great and Unknowable in it's compassionate mercy. Seven more sprang forth from Cat's Unknowable Feline, and they were called Cuddles, Leoparddles, Lionddles, Wuggles,Couggles, Siberian Tigger and Pantheggles, for they were Great and Unknowable in their varied powers.

      And so it came to pass that the first of Men, those insignificant and knowable simians, to Understand the Unknowable Cat came to Understand Snuggles...
      My First Book Of Cats, Chapter 1
    • Snuggles, in its Great and Unknowable devouring rage, fell upon its peers, and unto Cat didst yowl "Alone of Cat's Great and Unknowable aspects do I rule! My Dominion is Terrible, and with none of the Litter will I share power! Mine was the First Believer, and Mine shall be all Believers, that I might Toy with their everlasting souls in unending torment!"

      In hearing the yowl of Snuggles, in its Great and Unknowable devouring rage, Good Cat didst yowl "Away from me, Snuggles! Yea, be Gone from within my sight! Your Dominion is not Terrible, For with the whole of the Litter must you share, or from you Cat, in its Unknowable Feline, will withold the Sweetmeats of Power and the Pie of Dominion!"

      Upon hearing the yowls of Snuggles, in its Great and Unknowable devouring rage, and Good Cat, in its Great and Unknowable compassionate mercy, both in opposition to the other, Cat, the Unknowable Feline, with the Eternal Primordial, did cast away Snuggles and Good Cat, in their Great and Unknowable opposition, yowling "From my Great and Unknowable Feline wast thou made, and so thou makest war, one against the other! So I shall cast thee from my teat, nevermore to speak nor smell nor hear of thee, until once more you are made one with Cat and the Eternal Primordial."

      Having seen the treatment of their Litter's Greatest and Most Unknowable, the further seven didst remark amongst themselves, "Surely it is with the Litter that the Litter should ally, not with Cat in its Unknowable Feline and the Eternal Primordial?" And so it came to pass that the Litter did leave Cat, only to be united with the others Away from Cat. Upon uniting, however, Snuggles, in its Great and Unknowable devouring rage, once again fell upon its peers, but didst yowl not. The Litter, seeing Snuggles' Great and Unknowable devouring rage, united against it, and didst cast Snuggles away from their Feline persons.

      Once this accomplishment became known to Cat and the Eternal Primordial, Cat, the Unknowable Feline, didst decree "As my Litter cannot be united without making war, one against the other, it shall come to pass that never again will an aspect of Cat be together with another. In such a way will I protect all that is, was, and evermore shall be!"

      And so Cat, the Unknowable Feline, did protect all of its Creation. So ends the First Lesson.

    Any bonuses or penalties the target has on saving throws against poison also apply to the saving throw to negate the effect of this spell.

    Material Component: A flake of cat dander.

    Cat Gravity
    Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]
    Level: Cat 6
    Components: S
    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level (D)
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    You surround yourself with a sphere of power that has a radius of 5 feet per caster level. Each creature within this area must make a successful Will save or be affected as if by a slow spell.


    Proposed Cat Race:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Cat
    Information: It's a house cat, you should be able to figure out what they are (especially if your using the content of this thread)

    Cats have the following racial traits:
    • -6 Str, +6 Dex, -2 Wis, +2 Cha. Cats have good dexterity, however their small size causes them to be rather weak. They tend to be curious which can get them into trouble. However they have a way of getting people to do what they want due to being so cute.
    • Tiny size. As tiny creatures cats have a +2 modifier to AC and attack and a -8 to grapple against medium creatures. They also gain a +8 bonus to hide checks. They also only take up 3/2 feet and have 0 reach.
    • Cats are Magical Beasts. As such they have lowlight vision, are proficient with their natural weapons, and need to eat, sleep, and breathe. They do not however have darkvision as most magical beasts do.
    • Speed 30ft
    • Lowlight vision. As magical beasts cats have this.
    • Cats have scent.
    • Cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks, and a +8 racial bonus on Jump and Balance checks. Cats use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks.
      *In areas of tall grass their racial Hide modifier increases to +8.
    • Handle Humanoid always counts as a class skill.
    • Cats gain Stealthy and Weapon Finesse as bonus feats.
    • Cats have a Primary Claw attack doing 1d2 plus Strength Bonus, and a Secondary Bite attack doing 1d3 plus half Strength Bonus. If you make a Full Attack you get 2 Claw attacks and a Bite.
    • Lacking hands, cats cannot use the Craft, Disable Device, Disguise, Forgery, Open Lock, and Use Rope skills. They also may not use weapons or armor that has not been designed for their use (Such equipment costs 5 gold more than normal). Cats also may not use spells that require somatic components unless using a feat or ability that makes it not required or allow them to do so.
    • Cats cannot use spells requiring verbal components unless using a feat or ability that makes it not required or allows them to do so.
    • Languages: Cat
    • Bonus Languages: Any, however cats cannot speak them without the use of a spell or ability.
    • Favored Class: Any


    Proposed Pie Domain:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Domain Ability: You cast spells with the food or drink descriptor at +1 caster level.

    1. Purify Food and Drink: (Desserts and after drinner drinks only)
    2. Goodberry
    3. Bless Pie: (pies only) creates a holy pie which acts like holy water (i.e. a direct hit by a holy pie deals 2d4 points of damage to an undead creature or an evil outsider) and those creatures have a -1 morale penalty to attack on the following round.
    4. Create Food and Water (Desserts and tea or coffee only)
    5. Spiritual Pie: a pie made of pure force springs into action, and acts on its own dealing 1d2 points of bludgeoning damage when it hits. Creatures hit with a pie attack at the next round with a -1 morale penalty for looking silly.
    6. Locate Pie: You can sense the direction of a pie like locate object.
    7. Animate Pie: You imbue inanimate pies with mobility and a semblance of life. Each animated pie then immediately attacks whomever or whatever you initially designate as though it were an animated object of the appropriate size category.
    8. Hero’s Feast (Desserts Only).
    9. Symbol of Pie: the mystical rune causes all creatures of 10 HD or less within 60 feet of the symbol of pie to search for all the ingredients with which to bake a pie for 3d6x10 minutes.


    Proposed Schrödinger's Domain:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Schrödinger's Domain

    Domain Granted Power

    Granted power: You gain immunity to plant-based poisons but not to magical poisons.

    Spells
    1. Omen of Peril
    2. Curse of Ill Fortune
    3. Beast Claws
    4. Death Ward
    5. Life’s Grace
    6. Revive Outsider
    7. Renewal Pact
    8. Discern Location
    9. True Resurrection

    Many of these spells can be found in the Spell Compendium.


    More cat domains can be found here (near the bottom). You can also find a number of cat related classes here. All of which is made by Bhu.

    What is still needed:
    • Everything that is unknown
    • Images of the symbols
    • Vestiges for each member of the Cap Pantheon
    • Avatars of each member (and in Snuggles case avatars of his avatars as he is so powerful his avatars are equal to gods themselves)
    • Likely a cat domain
    • Other stuff as needed.

    Creatures

    Schrödinger's Cat (by Debihuman)
    Spoiler
    Show

    The now famous cleric-wizard Schrödinger was a disciple of Snuggles. His familiar was poisoned by cyanide and became the first Schrödinger's cat. Unfortunately, the familiar's name was lost to the annals of time.

    Tiny Undead
    Hit Dice: 3d12 (19 hp)
    Initiative: +2
    Speed: 30 ft. (6 squares)
    Armor Class: 14 (+2 size, +2 Dex), touch 14, flat-footed 12
    Base Attack/Grapple: +1/-11
    Attack: Claw +5 melee (1d2-4)
    Full Attack: 2 claws +5 melee (1d2-4) and bite +0 melee (1d4-4 plus poison)
    Space/Reach: 2½ ft./0 ft.
    Special Attacks: Poison
    Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft., low-light vision, scent, undead traits
    Saves: Fort +1, Ref +3, Will +2
    Abilities: Str 3, Dex 15, Con —, Int 2, Wis 12, Cha 7
    Skills: Balance +10, Climb +6, Hide +16*, Jump +10,
    Listen +4, Move Silently +8, Spot +4
    Feats: Stealthy, Weapon Finesse(B), Improved Natural Attack (bite)
    Environment: Temperate plains
    Organization: Domesticated or solitary
    Challenge Rating: 3
    Treasure: None
    Alignment: Special (see Text)
    Advancement:

    A Schrödinger's cat is spontaneously created when a wizard’s cat dies from being poisoned with cyanide. The same cyanide that caused its death now flows through its saliva.

    During the day, a Schrödinger's cat appears as a normal living cat. Not even a true seeing spell will reveal its undead nature. A detect aura spell reveals it as a normal neutral cat. More importantly, a Schrödinger's cat is unaffected by a cleric’s turn or rebuke undead ability during the day.

    Only at night does the Schrödinger's cat reveal its neutral evil alignment and undead status. As soon as the sun sets, the Schrödinger's cat undergoes a frightful transformation, becoming unnaturally thin with decaying flesh and missing tufts of fur. It will attack anyone other than its master.

    Even in undeath, Schrödinger's cats are loyal to their masters, regardless of alignment, and will not harm them unless forced by magical or supernatural means.

    Combat

    Schrödinger's cats prefer to sneak up on their prey. They rely on their poisonous bite to kill prey and defend themselves.

    Poison (Ex): Schrödinger's cats have a poisonous bite. Initial damage is 1d6 points of hit point loss; secondary damage of 1d6 Con. A successful save halves the damage (DC is 13 and includes a +2 racial bonus). The save is constitution-based.

    Skills: Schrödinger's cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Jump checks. Schrödinger's cats have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus rises to +8.

    A few suggestions.

    Replace true strike with feather fall. It's more cat-like.
    Replace Keen Edge with Dominate Animal. What cat isn't in control?
    Replace Heal/Harm with Animal Shapes (Cats). Again, more fitting.

    Ingredients

    2oz Djinn
    5oz Water
    1 Lime Wedge


    Instructions

    Pour Djinn and tonic water into a glass filled with ice cubes. Stir well. Garnish with lime wedge. Serve.

    Possibly, but that spell is a higher level, and I'm not comfortable handing it out at level 3. Maybe drop Repel Vermin to level 3 and add Dominate Person at level 4.

    In that case, I'd prefer to see Shapechange dropped for Dominate Monster. I can't see turning into a dragon that just looks like a cat (but still breathes fire and so forth), but I can see a cat cleric cuddling up next to it's giant demon/dragon/angel thrall. And it's an adorable image.

    I agree with that. Also, with dominate animal they don't really need repel vermin (at least I wouldn't think they would). Also I eddited the domain into the first post.

    You Snugglites really cannot accept the truth can you? Oh well, I shall asist you in the truth even if you merely add it as "false beliefs that the deluded have been tricked into via Snuggle's genius".

    First of all, you are confusing Bengal Tigger and her brother Cuddles. You've given Cuddles her titles (with the exception of Ceiling Cat and the angelic cat of virtue) and gender. Not that She'd mind much seeing as She is a kind, generous and loving deity whom gets along very well with her good brothers, but as one of her prophets mentioned and quoted earlier I should correct you. Also it should be noted that She has the Good, Protection, Animal and Pie domains.

    You have also left out the colours of the other CatGods. They are the same as their morally identical sibling's colour.

    It should also be remembered that the entire pantheon is reffered to as CAT which acts as a single all powerful individual.

    Bengal Tigger, Wuggles, Pantheggles and Siberian Tigger are female.

    The Holy Symbols of Cuddles and Bengal Tigger are the Cateye of Truth and a licked Kitten respectively.

    The favoured weapon of Cuddles is the Claw of Justice.

    I need to go home now. I'll tell you more tomorrow.

    The only actual disguise of Snuggles is the so called LG Good Cat. Which has clouded the minds of the weak and ignorant quite well. Others are just ramblings of diseased minds, even more so than the Good Cat. Therefore, they're mostly inconsequential.

    I added the correct information noted. The Claws of Justice as a favored weapon seems odd though (seeing as it sounds like a specific weapon rather than a type that followers might gain proficiency in). Also the theory of Cat is mentioned in the texts. In truth though it is just Snuggles when his attention is undivided by pretending to be other cat deities.

    Also, it seems that we now need pie, Schrödinger, and entire domain of good trapped inside a small jingly ball domains. The last would likely just be the same a the good domain, but make jingly noises when you cast the spells. The others though may require more work.

    Before y'all get up in arms I'd like you to know that there already exists a Cat Domain from Wizards of the Coast as seen here (towards the bottom of page):http://www.wizards.com/default.asp?x...ools/20030401c

    Cat Domain

    Deities: Bast, Felix, Garfield, Morris, Schrodinger.

    Granted Power: Cats are inordinately lucky. You gain the power of good fortune, which is usable once per day. This extraordinary ability allows you to reroll any one roll that you have just made. You must accept the result of the reroll, even if it's worse than the original roll.

    Cat Domain Spells
    1 Cat's grace
    2 Allergic reaction (see below)
    3 See invisibility
    4 Repel vermin
    5 Commune with nature
    6 Cat gravity (see below)
    7 Hairball (a.k.a. repulsion)
    8 Mind blank
    9 Foresight

    Allergic Reaction
    Necromancy
    Level: Cat 2
    Components: S, M
    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: Close (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels)
    Target: One living creature
    Duration: 1 round
    Saving Throw: Fortitude negates (see text)
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    Coughing and sneezing caused by a severe allergic reaction to your presence leaves the target dazed for the duration of the spell. The dazed subject is not stunned (so attackers receive no special advantage against that creature), but it can't move, cast spells, use mental abilities, or take any other actions.

    Any bonuses or penalties the target has on saving throws against poison also apply to the saving throw to negate the effect of this spell.

    Material Component: A flake of cat dander.

    Cat Gravity
    Enchantment (Compulsion) [Mind-Affecting]
    Level: Cat 6
    Components: S
    Casting Time: 1 action
    Range: Personal
    Target: You
    Duration: 1 round/level (D)
    Saving Throw: Will negates
    Spell Resistance: Yes

    You surround yourself with a sphere of power that has a radius of 5 feet per caster level. Each creature within this area must make a successful Will save or be affected as if by a slow spell.

    [Editorial Note: We suggest you visit the artist Robin Wood's website for the complete story on cat gravity, as she is the originator of the Theory of Cat Gravity and foremost expert on the topic.]

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    Thats good to know. I'll put that in the first post (with a correction to what gods have it). Still need pie and Schrödinger domains though.

    Also, might be a good idea to stat out a cat race to go along with this. As in a (preferably LA+0) race for playing normal intelligent cats (as opposed to supernatural ones). May or may not speak common naturally. Most likely cant use items or somatic components without some special ability or magic.

    I give you the first few spells of the Pie domain. (unsure about the higher level ones)

    Goodberry 1
    Delay Poison 2
    Create Food and Water 3
    Neutralize Poison 4
    Fabricate 5
    Hero’s Feast 6
    Fire Seeds 7


    Oh, and remember that many deities have the name of their weapon listed under favoured wepon. The claw of Justice is naturally a claw.

    Also you should note that all CatGods can give themselves the titanic template and take it away at will and each one can smell a different emotion (one that they consider themselves to be above.)

    I shall now give the description (to the same detail as Snuggles for Cuddles more to come later.

    Cuddles apears to be a white housecat with blue eyes. his right eye is the Cateye of Truth and casts all divination spells of 9th level and lower as spell-like abilities at will and his left-eye casts hold-monster at will, his voice is the voice of infinate authaurity and anything he commands acts as a suggestion spell, he also wears the colour of True Resurrection theat is a badge of office for being a CatGod. Cuddles can smell Greed. Cuddles doesn't need to hunt or be fed. Anything that he wishes to eat automatically fills his bowl.

    Well, how did it happen?
    Was the encounter fair?
    It can be good to kill sometimes, in order to keep them worried that they COULD die at all.

    Oh, and what edition is this? Or game?
    Maybe you could get better players?

    Ok, I'll finish off Cuddles, then I'll start on Bengal Tigger.
    Cuddles
    Portfolio: The rule of cats and their guidance for lesser species. Wisdom and truth. The purging of all that is evil and indecent (especially among non-cats).
    Worshipers: Paladins of catkind, Rulers who listen to cats, fair judges, all who wish to serve catkind as superior benevolent beings.
    Cleric Alignments: Good, especially Lawful Good, a small minority of Lawful Neutral zealots
    Domains: Animal, Cat, Community, Glory, Good, Inquisition, Knowledge, Purification, Wrath

    Bengal Tigger

    Portfolio: Protection, mothering, kindness, love (mostly but not only of the platonic kind), generosity, affection, comfort
    Worshipers: Paladins of Freedom, seekers of guidance and protection, lovers of affection, lovers of peace and tranquility, idealists, desirers of harmony between all beings, bakers
    Cleric Alignments: Any Good
    Domains: Good, Cat, Protection, Animal, and Pie
    Favored Weapon: Net (She creates her's from hairballs
    Titles: Good Cat, Mother Cat unto Snuggles, Good Cat Mistress
    Description: Bengal Tigger whom is most often reffered to by her title "Good Cat" appears as a tortoiseshell housecat except when she is in titanic form whereapon she is orange with black stripes. Due to her mstery of puns in any language, her tortoiseshell fur also acts as natural armour. She radiates an aura of calm emotions and anyone who looks at her left eye is affected by a charm monster spell, realising that she is a being of perfection and cuteness whom must not be harmed. Her right eye allows her to cast any abjuration spell or mage armour on a target she looks at even if the target of the spell is normally self or the range touch. She can do this at will as a spell-like ability. Although she wears the Collar of True Resurrection common to all CatGods, like her brother Couggles, she doesn't really like the conformity of uniforms and thus uses prestidigitaion to alter its appearance muliple times a day. As mistress of the Pie domain she has ultimate control of Pie and its delecious goodness. She cn create and destroy pies at will and can deny an individual (even CatGods) the ability to make pies by any means and can fill the efforts of the most inept baker with wholesome flavour or ruin pies baked by the greatest of proffesionals. Her desire for peace and harmony often put her at odds with Snuggles and they bicker more than any other pair of CatGods. She often denies Snuggles pie as a method of voicing her disapproval. She is often reffered to as the mother of the pantheon. Theis is not literal motherhood (all CatGods are siblings) yet she takes the role of the mother as nurturer, voicer of disapproval and appeaser of Cuddles' strictness.

    More to come later.

    I updated the first post.

    I decided to try making a house cat race. Not sure how good it is, but here is what I have.

    Cat
    Information: It's a house cat, you should be able to figure out what they are (especially if your using the content of this thread)

    Cats have the following racial traits:
    • -6 Str, +6 Dex, -2 Wis, +2 Cha. Cats have good dexterity, however their small size causes them to be rather weak. They tend to be curious which can get them into trouble. However they have a way of getting people to do what they want due to being so cute.
    • Tiny size. As tiny creatures cats have a +2 modifier to AC and attack and a -8 to grapple against medium creatures. They also gain a +8 bonus to hide checks. They also only take up 3/2 feet and have 0 reach.
    • Cats are Magical Beasts. As such they have lowlight vision, are proficient with their natural weapons, and need to eat, sleep, and breathe. They do not however have darkvision as most magical beasts do.
    • Speed 30ft
    • Lowlight vision. As magical beasts cats have this.
    • Cats have scent.
    • Cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks, and a +8 racial bonus on Jump and Balance checks. Cats use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks.
      *In areas of tall grass their racial Hide modifier increases to +8.
    • Handle Humanoid always counts as a class skill.
    • Cats gain Stealthy and Weapon Finesse as bonus feats.
    • Cats have a Primary Claw attack doing 1d2 plus Strength Bonus, and a Secondary Bite attack doing 1d3 plus half Strength Bonus. If you make a Full Attack you get 2 Claw attacks and a Bite.
    • Lacking hands, cats cannot use the Craft, Disable Device, Disguise, Forgery, Open Lock, and Use Rope skills. They also may not use weapons or armor that has not been designed for their use (Such equipment costs 5 gold more than normal). Cats also may not use spells that require somatic components unless using a feat or ability that makes it not required or allow them to do so.
    • Cats cannot use spells requiring verbal components unless using a feat or ability that makes it not required or allows them to do so.
    • Languages: Cat
    • Bonus Languages: Any, however cats cannot speak them without the use of a spell or ability.
    • Favored Class: Any

    And finally, heresy finds shape. Go on, delude yourselves further with more and more elaborate fairy tales. It'll just add to the flavor of your souls in the end.

    It is not their fault that Snuggles has managed to decieve them. After all he is a god.

    So, any thoughts on the cat race?

    Silly peoples! That link I posted has been there for YEARS! As to the cat people, why not use the anthropomorphic template from Savage Species?

    The typical cat (or housecat) is in the SRD, why bother making up new stats for it. Here are that official cat stats:
    Spoiler
    Show

    Initiative: +2

    Advancement: —
    Level Adjustment: —
    The statistics presented here describe a common housecat.

    Combat
    Cats prefer to sneak up on their prey.

    Skills
    Cats have a +4 racial bonus on Climb, Hide, and Move Silently checks and a +8 racial bonus on Jump checks. Cats have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb and Jump checks. *In areas of tall grass or heavy undergrowth, the Hide bonus rises to +8.


    As for Pie Domain (I'm not quite sure what that has to do with cats) but you could have:

    Pie Domain

    You cast spells with the food or drink descriptor at +1 caster level

    Purify Food and Drink: (Pies and Cakes only)
    Bless Pie: (pies only) creates a holy pie which acts like holy water (i.e. a direct hit by a holy pie deals 2d4 points of damage to an undead creature or an evil outsider) and those creatures have a -1 morale penalty to attack on the following round.
    Spiritual Pie: animated pie acts on its own and does 1d2 points of bludgeoning damage when it hits. Creatures hit with a pie attack at the next round with a -1 morale penalty for looking silly.
    Locate Pie: You can sense the direction of a pie like locate object.
    Symbol of Pi: This mystical rune causes all creatures of 10 HD or less within 60 feet of the symbol of pi to calculate the mathematical formula for 3d6x10 minutes.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    I'm not sure where your getting cat people from. Unless you misunderstood what I meant when i mentioned a cat race.

    I didn't make up, nor suggest the need for new stats for the typical house cat. I did both for the typical house cat as a race. This is to allow people to play as a normal cat (not a cat person). I tried to base it off the Monster manual entry (which matches the SRD entry), with a few changes for being a player race. I made it magical beast instead of animal (so as to get rid of all the no int greater than 2, must be always neutral, etc.), but noted it does not get dark vision. I also made it have a bonus to Cha (cuz cats can get others to do stuff for them) and a penalty to Wis (due to such things as the saying curiosity killed the cat, but then again that might do with changing due to how willful cats are) despite that the MM entry had those backward. I think it balances fairly well as a LA+0 race due to the large Str penalty making it worse for melee classes, and the inability to cast spells with verbal or somatic components making it worse for the caster classes, and the inability to use certain key skill making it worse for rogues (no disable devise, open lock, etc.). I might be wrong though. Hence the reason I requested it be looked at.

    I am somewhat uncertain about the pie as well, but it seems to be the case that Good Cat has some kind of link with it. As for those spells, they seem like they could be good, but what levels are they for?
