    Default Kalamarin a 3.5 Player Race [PEACH]

    Kalamarin

    Most kalamarin are the descendants of fishersmen, adventurers, and traders.
    They have a tedancy to be unpredictable and curious, traits that often get them in trouble. Kalamarin live near the shore in port towns open to all races, but just as often they live in other races cities or on the road. They have a lifespan of roughly 350 years, but don't suffer from the slowness and calm of other long lived races, for better or for worse.

    Personality: Kalamarin have strived to learn as much as possible about the world and other cultures, ever since their uprising against their Sahaguin masters. Kalamarin ten to be moody, but not angsty (such behavior is considered ill-humored and childish) and enjoy jokes both spoken and practical, they are also quite witty often going head to head with halflings in games of riddles.

    Physical Description: Kalamarin are 4'10" to a
    6 feet tall and weigh from 115 to 200 pounds. Kalamarins exhibit traits of squids and humanoids and are amphibious, one of the most noticable traits of kalamarins is their color changing skin, often shifting and changing with mood or preference, it allows them to blend in with their surroundings. Kalamarins have four arms with three fingered hands, their arms are very flexible and strong. They have a vastly different bone structure from humans and aren't as sturdy, they can however regrow lost limbs over a period of a few months.

    Relations: Kalamarins tend to get along swimmingly with other races, most noticably halflings and elves due to somewhat similar personality traits and the kalamarins interest in learning of other cultures. Their natural enemies are Sahaguin, due to their previous enslavement.

    Alignment: usually Chaotic Good or Chaotic Neutral

    Religion: Kalamarin do not have a specific religion of their own, rather they worship gods of the other races, some favorites are Corellon Larethian, Fharlanghn, and Olidammara.

    Language: Common and Aquan, kalamarins often learn languages such as Elven, Dwarven, and Draconic

    Names: They enjoy names from other languages whether or not it's a name of a different gender,examples are: Lia, Mialee, Quarion, Aust, Rurik, Ilde, Jarek, etc.

    Adventurers: In Kalamarin society adventuring is a well respected occupation, kalamarins are frequently overcome with wanderlust and are naturally good fighters due to their natural physiqe and jobs as fishermen. They tend to keep party morale high with their antics and occasional humorous ignorance.

    KALAMARIN RACIAL TRAITS +2 STR, +2 DEX, -2 CON,
    Medium: As Medium creatures, kalamarin have no special bonuses
    or penalties due to their size.
    Kalamarin base land speed is 30 feet. Kalamarin are amphibious and gain a +8 racial bonus on swim checks, and can always chose to take 10, their swim speed is 30 feet.
    Kalamarin have ...

    Four Arms!!!

    Fast Healing 1: At the beginning of each of the creature’s turns, it heals 1 hit point. A kalamarin that has taken both nonlethal and lethal damage heals the nonlethal damage first. Fast healing does not restore hit points lost from starvation, thirst, or suffocation. Fast healing does not increase the number of hit points regained when a creature polymorphs. Lost limbs regrow over a period of 1d4 months.

    Natural Camouflage: If a kalamarin remains in one place, they may naturally change color to hide their location as a full-round action, and gain concealment (confers 20% chance to miss), and the ability to make Hide checks, even when being directly observed, as long as they don't move from that location.

    Level Adjustment +2

    Favored Class: Fighter, though they are also known to become rogues. When determining whether a multiclass kalamarin takes an experience point penalty, her fighter class levels do not count.

    FIXED!

    Like the picture, but ...

    KALAMARIN RACIAL TRAITS +1 STR, +1 CHA, -2 CON,
    Has to be even numbers. Str +2, Con -2, Cha +2. Why are they charismatic?

    Kalamarin base land speed is 30 feet. Kalamarin are amphibious, their swim speed is 30 feet.
    Do they have the Amphibious subtype, meaning they have Water Breathing? You should also add a note that they gain the standard +8 racial bonus on swim checks, and can always chose to take 10.

    The rest of the race looks good, but I'd give them a bonus to Dex or a bonus to Escape Artist and bump them up to LA +1.

    I'd do Str +2, Dex +2, Con -2, Cha +2 and LA +1, but keeping the rest.


    Edit: Also, you mention they have color-changing skin but make no mention of it in their ability writeup.

    Still sorta WIP what do you think?
    Multidexterity? Where is that feat?

    Don't have odd bonuses to stats.

    Profession is next to useless, except in flavor. Capitalize Hide.

    So far, it seems like it's weak. I wouldn't use this for a rogue. Halflings are almost strictly better (especially strongheart halflings), and the same goes for humans.

    Looks interesting. What benefits does the color change abiliy give (you didn't outline that in the racial traits section). You also didnt' explicitly state that they have two sets of arms in the racial traits section. Also, if a creature/race has a swim speed listed, it usually gets a +8 to swim checks.

    It has some nice fluff as well. I think it's going to have one hell of an LA, though. (four arms, [presumed] camoflage ability, bonus feats, bonus skills, and two movement speeds)

    Fixed somewhat thanks for the help. I was thinking that using their color changing ability they could produce a disorienting pattern to confuse enemies a certain number of times a day, any ideas on how to go about this ability?
    Also this instead of Multidexterity
    MULTIWEAPON FIGHTING [General]
    A creature with three or more hands can fight with a weapon in each
    hand. It can make one extra attack per round with each extra weapon.
    Prerequisite: Three or more hands.
    Benefit: Penalties for fighting with multiple weapons are reduced by 2.
    Normal: A creature without this feat takes a –6 penalty on attacks
    made with its primary hand and a –10 penalty on attacks made with its
    off hands. (It has one primary hand, and all the others are off hands.)
    See Attacking with Two Weapons, page 124 in the Player’s Handbook.
    Special: This feat replaces the Two-Weapon Fighting feat for creatures
    with more than two arms.

    Yeah...I just read the racial traits. Until everything is in there, it's definitely not finished.

    I think it's gonna need more than LA+1 -- the four arms alone might warrant that (extra actions/attacks each round). Add in the ability score boosts, the free feats, and the skill bonuses, etc.

    I'd think at minimum LA+2, if not +3. But that's just my opinion

    I would say it's fair considering the bonuses elves and dwarves get, and the fact that you need to use up two feats unless you want -8 on all of your attack rolls.

    So far, it's looking like LA 2 is probably reasonable. I mean, it gets Multi-Weapon Fighting for free, and has 4 arms. That right there says to me that LA +2 is pretty reasonable.

    Compare to the non-psionic Thri-Kreen, who don't get the feat for free, have two racial hit dice, and still get saddled with LA 1. In reverse, you get the feat for free, have no hit dice, and are LA 1. Yeaaaaaaaaah, I'm gonna have to throw my vote at LA 2. That way, it feels better balanced.

    Another race that is good to compare against is the Diopsid from Dragon Compendium.

    All that I say applies only to myself. You author your own actions and choices. I cannot and will not be responsible for you, nor are you for me, regardless of situation or circumstance.

    This.

    As it is it should be LA 2.

    Remove one stat bonus and the feat and its more about LA 1

    That's simple: make it be a bonus to hide. Also, having 4 arms, in and of itself, isn't really OMGWTFBBQ powerful, since it just gives you an extra two arms, which could easily be given with the spell 'Girrallions Blessing', or, for those of you who know the F&K Tomes, the feat 'Extra Arms'.

    Interesting. I'm tempted to lean towards +1 LA myself, although at the very high end. Add in another useful ability or two and you'd have a solid +2 LA, I believe. Outside of the 4 arms, however, it gets nothing really that special...

    Two things stand out. First, include the regenerative properties of the race in the stat block; otherwise it's just meaningless flavor that may be easily overlooked. Secondly, why the heck do they get Martial Weapon Proficiency (Glaive)? A polearm would be one of the most awkward weapons to wield if you have extra arms, as they'd always get in the way. In fact, as they don't seem to be an incredibly martial race, I'd drop both bonus feats, and then make them LA +1.

    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.

    A glaive is similar to a fishing spear so it was pretty much fluff related. Will fix.

    Hmmm, I had an idea about this just now, and a couple of little minor abilities you could add:

    Natural Camouflage: If you sit still in one place for 10 rounds or more, your body naturally changes color to hide your location, and you gain 20% concealment, and the ability to make Hide checks, even when being directly observed, as long as you don't move from that location.

    Recovery: You have triple the normal heal rate of other creatures, meaning that, after a full nights rest, you heal (3 x your HD) hp.

    Also, just now read that, looks good.

    Glaive is a fun word to say.

    That's pretty cool think I might add that, I was toying with the idea of Fast Healing 1, where you heal 1 hitpoint a round, possibly a modified version, I want to keep LA down to +1 though what do you think?

    I'd say keep the Multiweapon Fighting racial feat, ditch the Profession (Swimming) bonus (mostly fluff) and I don't think the ability to change color would really work for disguise. Maybe a +4 to Hide instead?

    Don't forget to point out they have the Amphibious subtype so they can get water breathing.

    But I would agree towards the general opinion of LA +2. Or maybe ECL +2, with 1 RHD.

    True dat. Still think Disguise needs to go. Buff Hide, then give him Fast Healing 1. Maybe instead of Hide make it so his camoflague gives him a passive blur ability.

    Big changes, I think this is pretty fair compared to dwarves, plus it makes for cool fluff.

    Fluff It will, be put here!

    For six centuries the kalamarin were enslaved by the evil sahaguin, preventing technology beyond that of tribals or barbarians and isolating them from contact with the outside world. Their quest for freedom began when a crusading party of adventurers were imprisoned by the sahaguin, the kalamarin were tasked with guarding the adventurers until their execution could be scheduled. While imprisoned the party's Paladin determined that the Kalamarin were good aligned and their wizard knew sahaguin, after chatting with the kalamarin guards a plan was hatched against the sahaguin. Once the sahaguin king had decided that the heroes would be boiled to death, he sent 2 sahaguin warriors to retreive them. When they got there the heroes were gone, and they were met by five angry kalamarin. All through the night the sahaguin army was massacred, as the slaves hid using their natural camoflage tohide in the shadows where they could burst forth and hack the slavers to death with stolen weapons and tools. One of the greatest mistakes of the sahaguin was letting the Kalamarin population grow more than their own. To be continued...

    20% concealment
    What's this?

    I think you mean concealment, which grants a miss chance of 20%.

    Hmmm...they're back to having just 2 arms? Or did you forget to add that?

    Also, Natural Camouflage is a little weak. Perhaps make it if they take a full-round action to blend in? That I could actually see being used.

    Then maybe a racial feat makes it a Standard action, and a Paragon class or something would make it a move action...

    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.
