    Default Fleshwarping: A List of Grafts, Symbionts, and Related Goodies

    Author's Introduction:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Hi there, I'm relatively new to these forums (I lurked in the Homebrew section for quite some time, enjoying some of the excellent work there, but recently registered), but I was working on this project on my own because I was curious what material was out there for this kind of character, and since it's spread across several books it was easier to compile a list, and I figure I should share it.

    Anyway, the history here is that I recently came across the Daelkyr half-blood race in the Magic of Eberron book, and I think they're awesome, but they're not terribly well-supported. So I've been on a hunt for more Symbionts, and while grafts are a bit different, they're still pretty cool and thematically related. A ton of grafts are aberrant in nature anyway, and in Eberron basically all aberrations are creatures created and/or controlled by the Daelkyr anyway.

    This list, then, is all of the official grafts, symbionts, and related feats that I could find, as well as several PrCs that have a similar theme literally rebuilding oneself. I did not include things like ascension or lichdom (or else things like the Dragon Disciple and Dread Necromancer would be on the list), only things that literally involved physically (or magi-physically, I guess?) modifying your own body.

    I have included information that I believe to be well within legal boundaries as far as not pirating the material, but I'm no lawyer. In each case, I've included the name, the type (in the case of Grafts), a brief description that intentionally leaves out numerical specifics, and a book and page number. This is supposed to be a list to help you find the material in books you already own, not a way to get around buying the books. If a moderator would like me to modify the list in some way, please let me know, and I'll get right to that.


    First, here are the books I've checked for material so far:

        • Wyrmgrafter, Races of the Dragon pg. 101 Create Draconic grafts.

    • Grafts

      Note There are two "types" of Graft, the original kind that require the Graft Flesh feat, and the new kind that started with Magic of Eberron that each have their own feats. The two are very similar in concept but have different rules.

      The "old" types are Aboleth, Beholder, Fiendish, Illithid, Maug, Silthilar, Undead, and Yuan-ti grafts. These terms refer to the type of creature that creates these grafts (for the most part), rather than the source of the grafts themselves. As exceptions to this, however, Beholder, Silthilar, and Undead grafts may be created by anyone who takes the Graft Flesh feat and chooses the corresponding type. There are absolutely no limitations on the types of creatures that can receive these grafts, however, nor is there any limit to the total number of grafts that one may receive beyond logic (you presumably can't have three different grafts that replace a leg unless you had three legs to begin with).

      The "new" types are Construct, Deathless, Draconic, Elemental, and Plant grafts. These may be created by anyone, provided they find a creature of the above types to donate (or, ya know, "donate") the particular body part used, but a creature that has any one of these types of Graft cannot have a Graft of any other type at all, and further can only have a maximum of five Grafts, one in each of five new "body slots" of a sort.

      The commonalities between the two types is that they usually hurt you somehow, which varies depending on the type of the graft, and they are non-magical in nature and are neither suppressed by antimagic fields nor require magic item body slots. All grafts are dead and useless if the creature they are attached to dies.

      Anyway, the grafts, in alphabetical order:

    • Quori Embedded Dragonshards, Eberron Campaign Setting, pg. 263-264.
      • Aura Mask, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Permanent Misdirection.
      • Combat Instructor, Magic of Eberron pg. 115 3/day, use Offensive Precognition.
      • Crystalline Eye, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Put an extra eye on any part of your body; may allow you to see around corners or handle monsters with Gaze attacks with less risk. Four make you immune to being Flanked.
      • Ectoplasmic Armor, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Provides an Armor bonus to AC, and stacks with itself up to +10 AC, which is quite impressive. Makes you look like a Quori monster, though.
      • Ectoplasmic Fist, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Can make unarmed strikes without provoking attacks of opportunity; effectively one size category larger for Unarmed Strike damage.
      • Faceted Persona, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 +2 enhancement bonus to one Ability score.
      • Multifaceted Persona, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 As Faceted Persona, except 5 Power Points can change which Ability score it improves.
      • Pathfinder, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Know Direction and Location at-will.
      • Power Link, Magic of Eberron pg. 115 3/day, gives 2 free Power Points for Augmenting a Psionic Power. These 2 points do not count towards your maximum number of Power Points spent. Multiple Power Links stack to give even more extra Power Points, though still only 3/day.
      • Power Repository, Magic of Eberron pg. 116 1/day, swap a Power Known for whatever Psionic Power is in the Repository. The swapped Power must be the same level as the one in the Repository. Effectively gives you an extra Power Known.
      • Shadowsight, Eberron Campaign Setting pg. 264 Darkvision, at far too high a price.
      • Sustainer, Magic of Eberron pg. 115-116 Continual Sustenance.

      • Fleshwarper, Lords of Madness pg. 189-194 Master grafter gains a Graft Reserve similar to the Artificer's Craft Reserve, becomes more and more of an aberration, and can graft things that usually require being a certain species.
      • Fiend of Corruption, Fiend Folio pg. 202-204 Fiend that excels at manipulating mortals through the offers of gifts and power; one such gift is the ability to grant a free fiendish graft or symbiont to a willing mortal.
      • Green Star Adept, Complete Arcane pg. 41-44 Arcanist transforms himself into a living statue of starmetal.
      • Impure Prince, Magic of Eberron pg. 73-77 Ranger-type uses Symbionts to hunt down aberrations, most especially the Daelkyr themselves.

      • Pale Master, Libris Mortis pg. 47-49 Arcane necromancer becomes more and more undead through necromancy and undead grafts.

    Thank you, that's a great ressource !
    My only reproche is that I would have prefer to see the graft separate by type instead of all grouped together (and perhaps also seprate the eberon symbiont from the fiend follio one).
    Still really good work, I will bookmark it.

    Very important: There's a monster in Fiendish Codex 1 which can give you up to three fiendish grafts free of charge, instantly, and can be summoned with Greater Planar Binding. This is the only thing that makes some of the fiendish grafts worthwhile... otherwise they're horribly overpriced.

    Thanks for the praise!

    Yes, I would have put it by type too, in hindsight. When I started, I didn't realize how many grafts there actually were I knew there were a few outside Magic of Eberron, but turned out that there were a lot out there.

    Oooh, yeah, that would help; I'll look for that and add it. Thanks! I should also list the sidebar in Magic of Eberron describing how to handle grafts and symbionts as treasure.

    For the record, though, the most overpriced graft, must be the Silthilar graft "Healing Blood". It's disgusting.


    Anyway, if anyone knows of any other resources I've missed, or wants to suggest some homebrew, I'm all ears!

    You are forgetting the draconic grafts from either Races of the Dragon or Dragon Magic (I forget which), the ones that use the wyrmgrafter feat.

    Never mind, you got everything.

    Added the Sibriex per JaronK's suggestion; went through quite a few books' Tables of Contents to cross them off the list (didn't really expect to find anything in Races of the Wild, for example, but it didn't hurt to check).

    Aha! Thank you very much, I shall update the list! I really need to do some more searching for homebrew.

    Well, several of the "old" grafts are ridiculous: the Aboleth Tentacle and Mucus Projector are both extremely dangerous (check the SRD for info on exactly what Aboleth mucus does - these grafts allow you to use the stuff very regularly), for example. Quite a few of the grafts give decent, untyped, permanent bonuses to Strength, plus they give you a natural attack (usually Claw). If money's no object, you could stack a very large number of natural attacks through grafts, which might be quite dangerous when put on top of a Totemist or King of Smack-type build.

    The Eldeen Plantgrafter is very interesting, though; Darkwood Bark and Healing Tentacle are both quite good. I don't like the limitations on both sets of feats: almost all of the cool "old" grafts require that you get them done to you by a member of one of several powerful and unpleasant races (Aboleths, Illithids, Fiends, etc), while the "new" grafts limit you to only five grafts plus you can't get grafts of any other type once you have them. Of the other "new" grafts, nothing immediately comes to mind, though.

    For the symbionts, the Living Breastplate is one of a great armor, the Tentacle Whip is an excellent weapon (especially for an offhand weapon), and if you're not using your Swift/Immediate Actions, the Shadow Sibling would give you a constant 50% miss chance. Tonguworm gives you yet another natural attack, too. The symbionts from Fiend Folio are even more powerful (two of them give you the Illithid's Mind Blast), but they tend to hurt more (Int or Wis damage every time you use an ability seems common). Of course, a level of Binder (grab Naberius) fixes that right up...

    The Fleshwarper PrC allows you to avoid that little "must be a member of this race" issue. And wouldn't you not be able to get more than to hand grafts unless it explicitly gives you a new appendage?

    Ah, good point on the Fleshwarper; honestly I only skimmed it. As for the hand grafts: true, but you can get a lot of different natural weapons. Tongues, tails, claws, trampling, etc etc. Working out what does and doesn't stack can be difficult (like, really difficult; anyone who's tried to run a Totemist knows about this), but I'm pretty sure Grafts would have a fair amount to add to a Totemist and/or King of Smack. Worth it, though, I'm not sure - they can be very expensive.

    Are you only doing the 3.5 list? Because there's a lot of 3.25/3.0 material.

    I have to disagree with a couple of assessments.

    Book of Vile Darkness first introduced the concept of Grafts, I think. Had a machine that implanted them(but tore off your old limb first, so you'd have to survive the damage). You also missed Deformity(Hands), also from BoVD. Here we go. Page 119. Demonic Graft Machine. Had the 3-fingered Flexible Arm, the Clawed Arm, the Strong(+2 Con) Legs(plural), Fast(+10 feet movement when lightly/mediumly encumbered/armoured) Legs(again, plural). Also Fiendish Familiar Symbiote. Technically, the Cancer Mage should qualify as well, since he gets a Sentient Tumour. Likewise, Mother Cyst Feat from Libris Mortis. So yeah, BoVD is totally not lacking in "related material".

    Fiend Folio had the Fiend of Corruption Prestige Class able to provide free Fiendish Grafts once per month upon reaching 4th level in the class.

    Also, the way I read it, if it doesn't explicitly say that the Graft replaces an existing organ/limb, it's in addition. Eg, you can have unlimited Eye Stalk Grafts(until you run out of skull space), but only 2 Replacement/Gazing Eyes. Unless you use the Crown of Eyes and claim that they are considered "one of your own eyes". Other examples include Aboleth Tentacle.

    Quote Originally Posted by Aboleth Tentacle Graft

    What's not helpful though, is the implication that they can
    be added only to skum or to creatures that have already undergone transformation as a result of being hit by an aboleth's tentacles.
    However, a RAW interpretation means that if you were at any point in your history transformed by an aboleth's tentacles, you qualify. [i]Even if you have since been transformed back into your usual self.[i]

    I do believe Faiths and Pantheons or something similar had a Prestige Class devoted to the Great Mother Beholder who had one of each of the Beholder's Eyes added as Grafts to their skulls every level. However, if they ever stepped out of line, the Great Mother would fry them with a Disintegrate via the Eyes.

    I guess I should summarise which Grafts are additional and which are replacement. Note that certain limb Grafts, like Tails and Wings, are Additional on humanoid(not the creature type, the shape definition type; head, 2 arms, 2 legs) creatures, but would probably be Replacement on others(Lizardfolk, Raptorans). For ease of reference, they're going to be placed under Additional(presumably, you can't add more wings than you have back space/space for them to flap. Tails though...). Not everything under Replacement actually replaces a body part. Some just modify the surrounding flesh so you can't justify adding another.

    Aha, I missed that/those... though I'm pretty sure I have all of those grafts, though. (but maybe the "legs" makes a difference?)

    That I definitely have, from Fiend Folio. I'll add the page number for BoVD though.

    Ehh... similar; I could see it. But then I'd have to add the Quori "host" feats and then probably the Quori and Kalashtar themselves... and if I keep going down that line, I might end up including the Eternal Blade (I kid... sort of). I'll reread those two. I'm loathe to recommend the Cancer Mage for any reason, though.

    I'd say that's likely true. Other than the limited numbers and "only one type" restriction, I actually prefer the new graft rules just because they clarify this sort of thing.

    Actually, on this: can you explain that rule? I saw the text there, but it seemed to indicate a +2 bonus to the save DC for having only one eye... which makes no sense and is confusing.

    Ahh, there we go. Ocular Adept, Faiths and Pantheons, page 200. Apparently, it's just the singular central eye of an Eyeball Beholderkin(like a lesser Beholder), and yet somehow it gains the ability to fire all 10 rays of a regular Beholder.

    Quote Originally Posted by Veyr View Post

    They just mean that the figure is lower than it should be by 2 points(ie, it should really be 18, but you only have the one eye gazing, so 16). So it stands to reason that if both your eyes have been replaced by this(or if you're some kind of Triclops, presumably only need 2 of your eyes replaced), the save DC should thusly be raised by 2(ie, ignoring the +2 bonus/-2 penalty to the save DC)

    Likewise, one of the Fiendish Leg Grafts has the line about uneven legs reducing your speed. So just grab the Fast Leg to neutralise this, or else graft 2 Fast Legs.

    Quote Originally Posted by Veyr View Post

    The ones in the other books: Libris Mortis, Lords of Madness(not sure which others). I don't care much for the New Generation Grafts(and don't have much experience reading up on them), so somebody else can do those.

    Edit: Also, may want to edit your first post to add the part about Draconic Grafts being under "New Grafts" along with Construct/Deathless/Elemental/Plant.

    Mmm. And Beholders give this to non-beholders? Seems like an odd thing for them to do.

    I get your argument, I was more confused by the text in the book. It seemed to be referencing some default rule somewhere else, and it was really unclear that they translated the +2 bonus to targets' saving throws into the -2 penalty to the DC (like, doing that makes sense, it just wasn't clear to me that this was what they were doing).

    Ah, sorry, that makes sense. Yeah, sure; I still need to figure out how I'm going to integrate those lists (you'll receive full credit), but they are handy.

    The new grafts don't require that, since they all explicitly take one of five "slots" for them (arms, legs, flesh, eye, and... something else?). I don't like how you can only have one in each slot (and that there are only 5 slots), nor do I like the "only one type of graft" rule, but thus far the new grafts have struck me as more reasonable and the rules less vague.

    Good call, I'll do that now.


    Also, I ran across LordOfProcrastination's Nasty Gentleman TO build - wow. That thing is disgusting.

    Anyway, some homebrew I've come across, all related to the Daelkyr half-blood: I wouldn't call myself the best judge of balance, so I was hoping to get some opinions on these before I add them to the list. Notably, I found two different Daelkyr Half-blood Racial Paragon Classes (yet amusingly, both give the same feature the ability to generate a second symbiont).

    • Template:
      • Daelkyr Heir (Seidaku) turns Daelkyr Half-blood (and then some) into an LA +2 Template. It does a lot, but LA +2 is huge, so I don't know. With buy-off in higher-level games, absolutely worth it, though.
    • Racial Paragon Classes
      • Daelkyr Half-blood (DragoonWraith) Enhance symbionts as if they were magic items, gain a second Symbiont.
      • Daelkyr Half-blood (Warforged Goblin) Become more of an aberration, gain a second Symbiont.

    Would adding Dragon Magazine material to this be acceptable? It adds to the meager support, and from what I can tell it isn't horribly unbalanced like most Dragon material.

    The Wriggler adds four tentacles onto your face, by piercing your nose and penetrating your brain the same way an Illithid would.

    The Mnemonicus acts like a sorcerer/wilder stuck to the back of your head, it gets access to your spells/powers known and casts/manifests them on its own, it also has an Ego score in the high teens.

    Dragon 318:

    Eye of the Murky Deep ( penalty to Spot and Search, but if you cover the other eyes, you're immune to gaze attacks. Also, minimum 20 ft Underwater vision, regardless of lighting conditions (darkness and blinding spells block it as normal)

    Golden Dancing Pegleg (grants benefits of Mobility, Spring Attack, and competence bonus to all Perform (dance) checks.)

    Hot Iron Hook (+1d4 fire damage over a normal hook, once per day Mark of Justice- brands the victim with the hook, rather than writing on them).

    Leg of Squid (halves normal speed, grants Improved Grapple and a bonus to grapple, competence bonus to Swim)

    Mutineer's Eye ( Spot penalty, +1d6 sneak attack, but only to anyone that can make sneak attacks)

    Ossified Pegleg (continuous Hide From Undead, Command Undead 1/day)

    Sailor's Hook (competence bonus to Use Rope and Climb)

    Spyglass Eye (no distance penalty to Spot checks within 150 ft: beyond that, penalty accrues at -10 per extra 10 ft.)

    Teakwood Pegleg ( competence bonus to Swim & Balance, has a small secret compartment)

    EDIT: Exact numbers removed- since I'm not sure how much detail you're allowed to include when quoting from Dragon.

    Hot Iron Hook (+1d4 fire damage over a normal hook, once per day Mark of Justice- brands the victim with the hook, rather than writing on them).

    Leg of Squid (halves normal speed, grants Improved Grapple and a bonus to grapple, competence bonus to Swim)

    Mutineer's Eye ( Spot penalty, +1d6 sneak attack, but only to anyone that can make sneak attacks)

    Ossified Pegleg (continuous Hide From Undead, Command Undead 1/day)

    Sailor's Hook (competence bonus to Use Rope and Climb)

    Spyglass Eye (no distance penalty to Spot checks within 150 ft: beyond that, penalty accrues at -10 per extra 10 ft.)

    Teakwood Pegleg ( competence bonus to Swim & Balance, has a small secret compartment)

    EDIT: Exact numbers removed- since I'm not sure how much detail you're allowed to include when quoting from Dragon.
    Neat-o, will add!

    It isn't, I read the description again. It jumps onto your face and forces you to make a will-save, if you fail you get permanent intelligence drain as it scoops out bits of your brain, after that it acts like a third-level sorcerer and also lets you recast up to nine levels of spells(or up to 18 power-points), but it has an ego score of 19.

    Well, free spellcasting is free spellcasting; it's not awful, provided you can handle the Will save and Ego issues...

    There are more Willing Deformity feats in Book of Vile Darkness: Deformity (clawed hands), eyes, face, gaunt and obese.

    Elder Evils give Vile feats away for free including in the Willing Deformity line: Abominable Form, Deformity (eyes), face, gaunt, madness, parasite and Relexive Psychosis. Some overlap with BoVD there.

    And that's what I get for deciding to add the Vile feats after having gone through a bunch of books. Thanks, Steveotep! I'll start working on adding those.
