    AMITOK SHAMAN



    "IT IS TABOO!"

    At some point in the dim past your ancestors were turned away from the Goblinoid pantheon to that of Cryonax. Even you, his priesthood do not know the details (which were easily enough lost given that you have no written language).

    BECOMING AN AMITOK SHAMAN
    Just about Amitok with Cleric levels will do.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Amitok
    Domain Spells: Cold and Evil
    Patron: Must have Cryonax as a Patron
    Skills: Knowledge (Religion, The Planes) 4 ranks
    Feats: Domain Focus (Cold, Evil)


    Class Skills
    The Amitok Shaman's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Heal (Wis), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (religion) (Int), Knowledge (the planes) (Int), Spellcraft (Int) and Survival (Wis).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +2     +0     +2    Eschew Materials
    2. +1    +3     +0     +3    Battle Fury (+1), +1 Level of existing Divine casting class

    6. +4    +5     +2     +5    Improved Strength (+4 Str), +1 Level of existing Divine casting class

    10.+7    +7     +3     +7   Servitor of Cryonax, +1 Level of existing Divine casting class
    Weapon Proficiencies: An Amitok Shaman gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Eschew Materials: At 1st Level you gain Eschew Materials as a Bonus Feat (see Magic of Faerun).

    Battle Fury (Ex): At 2nd Level you gain a +1 Morale Bonus to Attack rolls. This improves to +2 at Level 5, and +3 at Level 8.

    Improved Strength: At 3rd Level you gain a +2 Inherent Bonus to Str. This increases to +4 at Level 6.

    Flash Frost Spell: At 4th Level you gain Flash Frost Spell as a Bonus Feat (see PHBII).

    Piercing Cold: At 7th Level you gain Piercing Cold as a Bonus Feat (see Frostburn).

    Large Form (Ex): At 9th Level your Size increases to Large.

    Servitor of Cryonax Ex): At 10th Level your Type changes to Outsider with the Air, Cold and Evil Subtypes. You also gain DR 10/Magic.

    PLAYING AN AMITOK SHAMAN
    You are the man. You rule by divine right, and no one so much as says boo to you. You also grovel before the Archomental and his servants, but that's in private...
    Combat: Unlike most priests you relish combat. You're pretty much built for it.
    Advancement: You do as Cryonax demands, you have no other choice.
    Resources: You can demand anything you want of the tribe, not that it matters much. Cryonax may occasionally loan you aid.

    AMITOK SHAMANS IN THE WORLD
    "There's Grunt again. Staring of into the snow talking to himself."
    You live in an ivory tower (well, more like an icy cave really...) and only descend from on high to make pronouncements from Cryonax.
    Daily Life: Much of your life is spent waiting for your god to tell you what to do next, or doing whatever he ordered last time.
    Notables:
    Organizations: You work for Cryonax, and no distractions are allowed. Not that there's much in the way of distractions for a tribal shaman whose people are just barely at the stone age.

    NPC Reaction
    This is an in detail description of how NPC's would perceive your class and the immediate generalization that people would give of your class.

    AMITOK SHAMANS IN THE GAME
    This PrC assumes one of the PC's is a catspaw of an Archomental. This may not bode well for party unity depending on whatver the others play.
    Adaptation: This is meant for an all evil party obviously.
    Encounters: PC's will generally see Amitok Shamans when they encounter their tribes in any numbers.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: Th PC's round a corner in the arctic wastes and see a huge group of furry mouth-frothers taking on a White Dragon. The PC's quickly reverse course.

    REDEEMER



    “People who claim that they're evil are usually no worse than the rest of us... It's people who claim that they're good, or any way better than the rest of us, that you have to be wary of.”

    Redeemers are Half-Goblins dedicated to fighting Evil, particularly Evil Humanoids. But they fight in less of a "kill em all and let the Gods sort em out" aense, and more from a sincere belief that anyone can be reformed given enough time.

    BECOMING A REDEEMER
    A Half-Goblin Fighter will do.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Half-Goblin
    Class Abilities: Armored Versatility
    Feats: Devout, Redeemer, Weapon Focus


    Class Skills
    The Redeemer's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Handle Animal (Cha), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (geography) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Ride (Dex), Search (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Use Rope (Dex).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 4 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +1    +2     +0     +0    Foe of Evil +4
    2. +2    +3     +0     +0    Uncanny Dodge
    3. +3    +3     +1     +1    Harrier
    4. +4    +4     +1     +1    Foe of Evil +6

    10.+10   +7     +3     +3   Foe of Evil +10
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Redeemer gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Foe of Evil (Ex): Your Bonuses from the Redeemer, Devout, and Partisan Feats increase to +4 against Evil opponents only. They increase again at 4th Level (+6), 7th Level (+8), and 10th Level (+10).

    Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Identical to the Rogue ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Harrier (Ex): Choose one weapon you have the Weapon Focus Feat for. The critical threat range for that weapon improves by 1 against Evil foes (i.e. if it normally criticals on a natural 20, it now does so on a critical 19-20).

    At 6th Level the critical threat range increases by 2 (i.e. now would critical on an 18-20), and by 9th level it increases by 3 (17-20).

    Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Identical to the Rogue ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Superior Uncanny Dodge (Ex): You do not lose your Dexterity Bonus to AC, and are immune to being flanked.

    PLAYING A REDEEMER
    You work to save the Goblinoids from themselves, and from their evil gods most of all. You feel certain if you could turn the races from Maglubiyet you could bring them around to a better life.
    Combat: You are dedicated to fighting Evil. It is literally your life's work.
    Advancement: Your advancement is largely left to the winds of chance. You train in whats available, when it's needed.
    Resources: Unless you can find a fairly liberal patron, you're reduced to whatever scraps you can find.

    REDEEMERS IN THE WORLD
    "HEY (beeeeeeeep)!"
    Redeemers are always the focus of controversy. Goblins and other primarily evil humanoids see you as opponents trying to bring down their religion. Other humanoid see you as apologists for those races because you insist not all of them are Evil. And then there's the racists. It's like some days when you just can't win.
    Daily Life: Your days are busy. There's barely even enough time for training.
    Notables:
    Organizations: The Redeemers are a social organization attempting to become something like an Order of Knights. Their focus is on social justice and stopping both bigotry, and the excesses of the Goblinoid religion that presses for war.

    NPC Reaction
    You're the low guy on the totem pole no matter where you go. The Goblins hate you, the non-Goblins hate you. Any day you aren't the target of a mob is a good day.

    REDEEMERS IN THE GAME
    This class assumes the PC is a member of a hated minority, which may be triggery for some.
    Adaptation: This assumes Goblins are evil, and are prolific enough to have mixed race children. Your campaign may not fit thiis.
    Encounters: Redeemers are encountered where ever Goblins or anti-goblinoid prejudice occur.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's encounter a group of Goblins fighting some sort of warrior, and intervene on his half. Turns out he's somewhat Goblin-ish himeslf.

    The Orughi are an offshoot of Ogres dwelling on remote islands north of Ansalon. They are much shorter than most Ogres being as tall as tall humans, with oily grey skin and golden hair. Their webbed hands and feet make them very capable swimmers. They have no official government with the eldest males of each family jointly ruling the tribe. They worship Zeboim, and an easy way to tell if a village of crude wooden shacks belongs to the Orughi are the stone towers they build to honor her.

    Hold Breath (Ex): An Orughi can hold its breath for a number of rounds equal to 10 × its Constitution score before it risks drowning.

    Combat: The Orguhi prefer to lure opponents into the sea or fight from a distance with their Tonkks. They are also fond of daggers and battle axes.

    ORUGHI CHARACTERS
    Like most Ogre variants, the Orughi are meant for melee. They can be Wisdom based casters, but their Hit Dice and racial LA make this very sub-optimal.
    Adventuring Race: Orughi generally only leave their homes when ordered by the Nzunta or their goddess.
    Character Development: Orughi are meant for underwater combat, so you may as well specialize in that if it's a sea going campaign.
    Character Names:

    ROLEPLAYING AN ORUGHI
    You look down on other races because you make slaves of them, despite being slaves yourselves. The Nzunta can be cruel to you, and you visit their cruelty a thousand fold upon others.
    Personality: You pretty much do your best to live up to every bad stereotype of the Ogre race.
    Behaviors: You much prefer to spend your time hunting and fishing to any other activities.
    Language: Orughi speak their own dialect of the Giant language.

    ORUGHI SOCIETY
    The Orughi are barely outside of the stone age other than metal working. They live in crude wooden shacks and sink any ships that pass close to their homes.
    Alignment : Due to their religion and dire past, the Orughi are almost universally Chaotic Evil.
    Lands : The Orughi live on remote islands to the north of Ansalon.
    Settlements : The Orughi do not settle.
    Beliefs : Zeboim is the deity of choice for the Orughi.
    Relations: Orughi see the other races as slaves or enemies for the most part.

    ORUGHI ADVENTURES
    · Your master wants you to harass some seaside towns in Ansalon. To serve as a distraction for whatever he is doing.
    · An Aboleth has taken residence, and you have been told to move him along.
    ·A ship wrecks on your coastline during a hurricane, and unfortunately it has murderhobos...



    Tonkk (Exotic Weapon)
    Cost: 50 GP
    Damage (M): If you succeed in a ranged attack roll you entangle an opponent. An entangled creature takes a -2 penalty on attack rolls and a -4 penalty to Dexterity. Huge or larger creatures are unaffected by a Tonnk. A flying creature must make a DC 15 Reflex save or be unable to fly (assuming it uses its wings to fly) and fall to the ground. A Tonnk does not function underwater. Each round the victim can make a DC 17 Str Check to free itself. Until it does, the Orughi can make an Opposed Str Check eash round. If it succeeds it pulls the entangled opponent 10 ft. closer to itself.
    Critical: n/a
    Range Increment: 20 ft. (max range is 50 ft.)
    Weight: 10 lbs.
    Type: n/a

    Orughi Racial Substitution Levels

    Fighter
    Any even numbered Level: You may take a Racial Feat instead of a Fighter Feat at even numbered Levels.

    Barbarian
    Level 1: Fast Movement can be either your land or swim speed.

    cold damage every time it succeeds with an Unarmed strike, grapple or natural attack. Creatures attacking a Footsoldier unarmed or with natural weapons take this same cold damage each time one of their attacks hits.

    Kalothagh Spines (Ex): Any creatures within 5 feet of a Footsoldier must succeed at a Reflex save each round or take 1d6 piercing damage. The save DC is Dexterity-based. Any creature hurt by a Footsoldier’s spines through this method or its attack must succeed at a Reflex save, or the barbed spines will hook in the creature’s flesh, causing the spine to detach from the Footsoldier. Removing the spines results in another 1d4 points of damage. A Footsoldier is assumed to have 2d8+16 spines at any given time. It takes one week for its spines to grow back.

    Magori's Blood (Ex): Whenever an opponent within 5 feet of the Footsoldier deals damage to it with a slashing or piercing
    weapon, he must make a DC Reflex save or take 2d4 points of acid damage as the Footsoldier’s blood splatters him. Success
    negates all damage. The save DC is Constitution-based.

    Veteran: So long as you are touching the sea you are immune to critical hits.

    PLAYING A NZUNTA FOOTSOLDIER
    The Nzunta are Gods, the true rulers of the world. You were born to serve them, and they will reward you when the world is theirs again.
    Combat: You try to lure opponents into the water where they are more vulnerable. You're also fond of ambushing ships, pulling sailors off the decks.
    Advancement: How you advance depends entirely on your masters.
    Resources: You have what you can steal or what the Nzunta give you.

    NZUNTA FOOTSOLDIERS IN THE WORLD
    "If you see tall stone towers on an island, give it a wide berth."
    As far as the world knows the Orughi are marauding brutes, much like any other. No one suspects your hidden masters.
    Daily Life: Much of your day is spent hunting and fishing unless your masters need you. Or a ship sails too close.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Being servants of the Nzunta, you pretty much aren't allowed to have other ties.

    NPC Reaction
    You're a monster, NPC's treat you much like any other monster.

    NZUNTA FOOTSOLDIERS IN THE GAME
    This assumes the PC is the servant of an evil empire hellbent on world domination (or at least they consider themselves that). Might be best as an NPC class.
    Adaptation: This is meant for Evil Campaigns set in the oceans of the Forgotten Realms.
    Encounters: The Orughi and their masters only exist on remote islands north of Ansalon.

    Sample Encounter
    EL x: The PC's run aground in a horrible storm. The superstitious crew is terrified of the stone towers on the island. Turns out they have reason to be.

    Jagre are high level Jaguar Knights loyal to the God of war Zaltec. As a reward they have been changed into 16' tall Ogre-like monstrosities bearing the mark of the Viperhand on their chests. Normally armed with clubs or macas, they wear the enchanted hides of Displacer Beasts as Armor.

    Displacer Beast Armor:
    All Jagre are given a set of +1 Hide armor. Some go so far as to endure rituals bonding this armor to their skin making it impossible to remove. A Jagre wearing it may change into a Displacer Beast at will (this ability only works for the Jagre). This works exactly like Alternate Form with the following exceptions: It gains all the Special Qualities of it's Displacer Beast Form, and it still gains the Armor Bonus from it's armor.

    Combat: Jagre are equally divided between those who enjoy attacking as beasts, and those who like beating opponents to death with weapons. They generally aren't subtle.

    JAGRE



    "You will bow to Zaltec."

    Jagre are high level Jaguar Knights loyal to the God of war Zaltec. As a reward they have been changed into 16' tall Ogre-like monstrosities bearing the mark of the Viperhand on their chests. Normally armed with clubs or macas, they wear the enchanted hides of Displacer Beasts as Armor. In Displacer Beast form their fur is colored similar to that of a jaguar.

    JAGRE RACIAL TRAITS

    � +5 Natural Armor Bonus.
    � Displacer Beast Armor (Ex): All Jagre are given a set of +1 Hide armor. Some go so far as to endure rituals bonding this armor to their skin making it impossible to remove, though the armor will not work for non-Jagre's. A Jagre wearing it may change into a Displacer Beast at will (this ability only works for the Jagre). This works exactly like Alternate Form with the following exceptions: It gains all the Special Qualities of it's Displacer Beast Form, and it still gains the Armor Bonus from it's armor.
    � Racial Hit Dice: A Jagre begins with twelve levels of Giant, which provide 12d8 Hit Dice, a base attack bonus of +9, and base saving throw bonuses of Fort +8, Ref +4, and Will +4.

    JAGRE CHARACTERS
    Your Racial Hit Dice and LA rule out spellcaster, so like most Giant types your option is melee.
    Adventuring Race: Jagre go on adventures because they are ordered to.
    Character Development: You'll be fighting a lot as a Displacer Beast, so it may help to specialize in fighting in doing so.
    Character Names:

    ROLEPLAYING A JAGRE
    You're in charge, and it shows. Especially when someone is foolish enough to tell you no. Being refused tends to send you into homicidal rages.
    Personality: You are basically an anthropophagous fascist with a strong streak of religious zealotry. No cruelty is too small for you.
    Behaviors: Jagre's are obsessed with both hunting and control. Particularly control. They are also pushing the expansion of their kind.
    Language: Jagre speak Giant, and most speak Common as well.

    JAGRE SOCIETY
    Jagre are the leaders of Nexal, and all must obey them other than Hoxitl and the Beast Leaders.
    Alignment : All Jagre are Evil, and most are Chaotic as well.
    Lands : All known Jagre live in the Valley of Nexal.
    Settlements : See above.
    Beliefs : All Jagres worship Zaltec.
    Relations: Jagre are carnivores who prefer Humanoid meat, so they aren't well liked. Except by Ogres and the Viperhand (Ogres and Jagres breed Jagres, so there is some alliance there).

    JAGRE ADVENTURES
    • [li]Someone is killing the agents of the Viperhand, and you have been tasked with stopping it.[/li]
      [li]Someone is deliberately targeting Jagre children, and you have been chosen to stop it.[/li]
      [li]Things have been odd since a comet passed recently. The human slaves have been acting oddly, and in concert. You'd swear they were possessed.[/li]



    Jagre Racial Substitution Levels

    Fighter
    Any even numbered Level: Instead of a Fighter Feat you may choose a Racial Feat.

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +2     +0     +2    The Ritual of Merging

    10.+7    +7     +3     +7    Beast Lord
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Tlatoani gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies

    The Ritual of Merging (Su): At 1st Level you gain a +2 Deflection Bonus to AC in Displacer Beast Form.

    At 4th Level you also now gain your Resistance to Ranged Attacks Bonus when not in Displacer Beast Form.

    At 7th Level may instead turn into a Displacer Beast Pack Lord once you also have at least 18 HD.

    Hishna Magic (Sp): At Levels 2, 5 and 8 you can choose one spell from the Hishna Magic spell list. You may cast that spell 1/day as a Spell-Like Ability. At 2nd Level you can choose any spell of 3rd Level or less. At 5th Level you can choose any spell of 4th Level or less, and at 8th Level you can choose any spell of 5th Level or less.

    Leadership: At third Level your Leadership Score is your ECL plus your Charisma modifier. All your Cohorts/followers must be Orcs. At 6th Level your Cohort can be an Ogre if your leadership Score is 9 or higher. At 9th Level your Cohort can be a Troll if your leadership Score is 14 or higher.

    Beast Lord: At 10th Level you get a +10 Bonus on your leadership Score.

    PLAYING A TLATOANI
    You are a born leader of monsters. Cruelty is like a drug to you.
    Combat: You prefer mixing it up in melee combat despite your ranged defenses. You like the feel of blood on your hands.
    Advancement: Your advancement is determined solely by the Viperhand.
    Resources: You have whatever gifts Zaltec bestows on you, and whatever you can take as plunder.

    TLATOANI IN THE WORLD
    "Any excuse will serve a tyrant."
    The world lives in horror of you cult and it's anthropophagus tendencies.
    Daily Life: You manage much of the Viperhand's daily affairs, especially raids and warfare.
    Notables:
    Organizations: All Tlatoani belong to Zaltec's cult.

    NPC Reaction
    You are regarded with the fear usually shown to monsters.

    TLATOANI IN THE GAME
    This assumes the PC is a leader of sorts in an evil cult, and might be best left for npc's.
    Adaptation: This is meant for an all Evil campaign set in Maztica, but shouldn't be hard to adapt.
    Encounters: The Tlatoani are rarely found outside the Valley on Nexal.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 15: The PC's are hired by a sketchy looking Orc to guard his Lords property, which turns out to be human. Can they rescue the slaves without being found out?

    Zakharan Ogres are 10' tall slender humanoids with yellow skin, purple eyes, and orange claws and teeth. Hair ranges from blue-black to dark green. Some have violet skin, and are shunned as it is assumed this means they have Ogre-Magi blood.

    Combat: Zakharan Ogres are more intelligent than their brutish kin, whom they consider animals. They actually use tactics as opposed to simply running up and wailing.

    ASKAR



    "I will not hear you speak about my home in this manner!"

    Askars are the default civilized warrior in Al-Qadim. They serve as city and caravan guards and the personal guard of the nobility. They are urbane, literate and in a good position to become rulers themselves someday. Their one flaw is a tendency towards chauvinism and nationalism. Even in their country of origin they tend to believe their particular city is the best the country has to offer.

    BECOMING AN ASKAR
    Just about any Fighter qualifies easily.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Special: Cannot be illiterate
    Feats: Weapon Focus (Scimitar or Spear), Weapon Specialization (Scimitar or Spear), any other Fighter Feat
    Skills: Craft (armor, weapons) 4 ranks


    Class Skills
    The Askar's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather Information (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Knowledge (local) (Int), Listen (Wis), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex) and Spot (Wis).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d10

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +1    +2     +0     +0    Local Celebrity
    2. +2    +3     +0     +0    Guardsman
    3. +3    +3     +1     +1    Military Training
    4. +4    +4     +1     +1    Local Celebrity
    5. +5    +4     +1     +1    Guardsman
    6. +6    +5     +2     +2    Military Training

    10.+10   +7     +3     +3    Veteran
    Weapon Proficiencies: An Askar gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Local Celebrity (Ex): At 1st Level you gain a +2 Circumstance Bonus on Diplomacy and Gather Information Checks made against members of your home city. At 4th Level you gain a +2 Circumstance Bonus on Intimidation and Sense Motive Checks made against targets who are not natives of your city. At 7th Level you gain a +2 Circumstance Bonus on Knowledge (Local, Nobility) Checks.

    Guardsman (Ex): At 2nd Level you gain a +1 Bonus on Listen and Spot Checks, as well as Saving Throws meant to avoid Fatigue or Exhaustion. This Bonus increases to +2 at Level 5 and +3 at Level 8.

    Military Training (Ex): At 3rd Level you gain a +1 Bonus to Attack and Initiative rolls while defending your city, it's inhabitants, or an Ally. This increases to +2 at Level 6, and +3 at Level 9.

    Veteran (Ex): At 10th Level you are immune to Mind-Affecting Effects.

    PLAYING AN ASKAR
    Your town is the best town. You know it's the best town because it's yours. And everyone else is nothing by way of comparison. Sure, your town might be a dirt farm, but it's a very moral, upstanding dirt farm.
    Combat: You tend to be a bog standard guardsman. Combat tends to be infrequent, but quite desperate when it does. Staying alert is your friend.
    Advancement: Your advancement depends on the needs of your city.
    Resources: Most Askars enjoy the patronage of the city, so depending on how stingy the locals are you can usually enjoy things like discounts from the local merchants.

    ASKAR IN THE WORLD
    "Do not discuss politics with the guards..."
    Askars can sometimes be local celebrities, and even the ones who aren't are still 'local boys'. At least to the locals. The worst Askar can be violent bigots who bring shame to the profession.
    Daily Life: Generally you spend your days guarding something or someone. With luck there are no raids on your shift.
    Notables:
    Organizations: All Askar belong to their local army or militia, and many belong to Merchants Guilds or other civic associations.

    NPC Reaction
    Locals love you. Outsiders...not so much.

    ASKAR IN THE GAME
    This assumes you're a local guard, which may be difficult to craft adventures in which you aren't traveling on behalf of the town or it's inhabitants.
    Adaptation: This is meant for Al-Qadim, but can be used as a generic local militia PrC.
    Encounters: PC's will generally see Askar when entering their city or any important location within it. They might also be guarding merchants or nobles who are traveling.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's are entering a town for supplies, and are halted by the local guards

    Hi Strat! I'll add em to the front page today.

    WRECKER



    "Nothing makes me happier than the screams of the drowning."

    Island Giants are well known for wrecking ships that sail near their islands. In fact some of them specialize in it.

    BECOMING A WRECKER
    Most Island Giants will probably qualify for this.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Island Giant
    Class Abilities: Rage
    Feats: Point Blank Shot, Power Attack


    Class Skills
    The Wrecker's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are are Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Intimidate (Cha), Jump (Str), Listen (Wis), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d12

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +1    +2     +0     +0    Clubmaker
    2. +2    +3     +0     +0    Stonethrower
    3. +3    +3     +1     +1    Shipwrecker
    4. +4    +4     +1     +1    Clubmaker
    5. +5    +4     +1     +1    Stonethrower
    6. +6    +5     +2     +2    Shipwrecker
    7. +7    +5     +2     +2    Clubmaker
    8. +8    +6     +2     +2    Stonethrower
    9. +9    +6     +3     +3    Shipwrecker
    10.+10   +7     +3     +3    Master of Violence
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Wrecker gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Clubmaker (Ex): Your ability to uproot trees from the ground means you are rarely without a weapon on your island home. If necessary the Wrecker can uproot a tree as a Full Round Action. It must make a Str Check whose DC depends on the size of the tree: 20 for Medium, 25 for Large, 30 for Huge. They may wield these trees as clubs, with damage varying based on size: Medium is 2d6 plus Str (one handed), Large is 3d6 plus Str (one handed), Huge is 4d6 plus one and a half times Str (two handed). They may also throw theses trees, with a Range Increment of 30'.

    At 4th Level they do one additional die of damage with these improvised clubs.

    At 7th Level they do another additional die of damage with their clubs.

    Stonethrower (Ex): You have excelled in your rock throwing abilities, especially distance. At 2nd Level you do one additional die of damage, and the range of your thrown rocks increases by +20 ft.

    At 5th Level your thrown rocks do one more additional die of damage, and their range increases an additional +20 ft.

    At 8th Level your thrown rocks do one more additional die of damage, and their range increases an additional +30 ft.

    Shipwrecker (Ex): At 3rd Level your thrown rocks ignore the Hardness rating of target vehicles.

    At 6th Level a submerged Wrecker that surfaces under a boat or ship less than 20 feet long capsizes the vessel 95% of the time. It has a 50% chance to capsize a vessel from 20 to 60 feet long and a 20% chance to capsize one over 60 feet long.

    At 9th Level the chances of capsizing a vessel increase to 100% if it's 20 ft. or less, 60% for a vessel from 20 to 60 ft. long, and 30% for vessels over 60 ft. long.

    Master of Violence (Ex): At 10th Level you may reroll any damage dice that roll a 2 or less.

    PLAYING A WRECKER
    You love wrecking ships. Just love it. You actually get super depressed if you go any length of time without killing people. Yeah technically you're the islands main defense, but you're a very...proactive defense.
    Combat: Combat for you generally consists of shrinking ships with boulders, waiting for the crew to swim to shore, and then beating them to death.
    Advancement: Most Wreckers are staggeringly similar. They are creatures with simple passions.
    Resources: You only have the resources you can steal pretty much.

    WRECKERS IN THE WORLD
    "There's a reason no one visits the archipelago..."
    You live on a deserted island in the middle of nowhere. You don't interact much with anything.
    Daily Life: You're pretty much a sadistic whacko who scans the horizon for the opportunity to torture and kill people.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Island Giants aren't the organizing type.

    NPC Reaction
    No one likes Wreckers. Even their own kind.

    WRECKERS IN THE GAME
    This class is probably best for all Evil campaigns, considering as it's predicated on those taking it being a sadistic monster.
    Adaptation: This is meant for Al-Qadim, but could easily be adopted to other settings.
    Encounters: Wreckers occasionally hire out as mercs, but mostly they're only found on their island homes.

    Sample Encounter
    EL x:The PC's are on the lookout, guarding the merchant vessel they're on from pirates, when a huge boulder crashes through the hull. Gonna be one of them days.

    WATCHER



    "My hearing is better than the average dogs you know."

    A Watcher is a Fachan employed as a watchman for a local Lord or tribe. Their job is to warn the tribe of danger, stall or sabotage interlopers, and scout for raiding parties.

    BECOMING A WATCHER
    Any Fachan with the appropriate skills will do.

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Fachan
    Skills: Hide 4 ranks, Listen 4 ranks, Move Silently 4 ranks, Spot 4 ranks
    Feats: Greater Hearing, Improved Hearing


    Class Skills
    The Watcher's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (geography) (Int), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Search (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 6 + int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +1    +2     +0     +0    Ambush +1d6

    9. +9    +6     +3     +3    Swift Tracker
    10.+10   +7     +3     +3   Veteran Watcher
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Watcher gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Ambush (Ex): In any round in which the Watcher makes an attack against an opponent who is Flat-Footed or unaware of his presence he does +1d6 damage. He also gets this bonus to ranged attacks performed on any round in which he does not move. This extra damage increases by 1d6 at Levels 4 and 7.

    The extra damage only applies against living creatures that have a discernible anatomy. Undead, constructs, oozes, plants, incorporeal creatures, and creatures immune to extra damage from critical hits are not vulnerable to this additional damage. The Watcher must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. Watchers can apply this extra damage to ranged attacks made while ambushing, but only if the target is within 30 feet.

    At 3rd level, the applicable range for your Ambush attack increases by +20', and it increases by another +20 ft. at Level 7.

    A Watcher loses this ability when wearing medium or heavy armor or when carrying a medium or heavy load. If she gains the Ambush ability from another class, the bonuses stack.

    Stealthy: At 2nd Level you gain Stealthy as a Bonus Feat.

    Track: At 3rd Level you gain Track as a Bonus Feat.

    Camouflage (Ex): Identical to the Ranger Ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Woodland Stride (Ex): Identical to the Ranger Ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Hide in Plain Sight (Ex): Identical to the Ranger Ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Swift Tracker (Ex):
    Identical to the Ranger Ability of the same name listed in the PHB.

    Veteran Watcher: At 10th Level the range of your Greater Hearing Feat increases 20 ft., and you no longer take Size Penalties to Hide Checks. Any Penalties you gain to Listen or Spot Checks due to range are lowered by 2.

    PLAYING A WATCHER
    People (well monsters usually) hire you as guards. Your entire purpose is to make sure outsiders don't get close to your charge.
    Combat: You're the watchman who acts as an early warning system to the tribe/person who hired you. Speed and perception are at least as important as martial skill for you, as you prefer to attack from ambush.
    Advancement: Most Watchers progress similarly. They have a pretty limited skillset.
    Resources: You usually have a patron Orc or Ogre tribe. The lucky among you get jobs with less discriminating would be tyrants with money.

    WATCHERS IN THE WORLD

    'Keep yer eyes open, the local Giants are surprisingly good at hiding."

    On duty you don't interact with the world at all, unless there are intruders or war is declared. Even off duty your personality drives others off.
    Daily Life: Much of your day is spent on some lonely mountain in the middle of nowhere listening intently for trouble. In less boring times you scout for some rich guys army.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Most of you are hired by Orc or Ogre tribes. Some of the luckier Watchers become mercs for armies.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's treat you like any other bloodthirsty monster. Which is what you are.

    WATCHERS IN THE GAME
    This assumes the PC is both a member of an Evil anthropophagous race, and hired to guard someone or something. Might get the PC's in a bit of a situation when they enter town...
    Adaptation: This is a probably best for all Evil campaigns, but could be adapted to races of similar build and abilities.
    Encounters: Watchers are generally found guarding Orc, Ogre or Fachan encampments, though on rare occasion other Evil beings will hire them.

    Sample Encounter
    EL x: The PC's have been hired to help destroy a local Orc Warren. Something is killing of the Lords men en route to it, and he wants you to eliminate that something.

    EPIC WATCHER

    Fachan Racial Feats

    Improved Hearing
    You can hear better than the average bat.
    Prerequisites: Fachan
    Benefits: The Check DC of your Listen Checks extends from +1 per 10 feet to +1 per 100 feet.


    Greater Hearing
    You even do well against invisible opponents.
    Prerequisites: Fachan, Improved Hearing
    Benefits: You can sense all foes within 40 feet as a sighted creature would. Beyond that range, you treat all targets as having total concealment.

    You are susceptible to sound- and scent-based attacks, however, and are affected normally by loud noises and sonic spells (such as ghost sound or silence) and overpowering odors (such as stinking cloud or incense-heavy air). Negating your sense of smell or hearing reduces this ability to normal Blind-Fight (as the feat). If both these senses are negated, you are effectively blinded.


    Hard Hitting
    You are good with melee weapons.
    Prerequisites: Fachan, Power Attack
    Benefits: When using your Power Attack Feat you do +2 damage, and have a +2 Bonus on Critical Confirmation rolls.


    Harder Hitting
    You have received further combat training.
    Prerequisites: Fachan, Hard Hitting
    Benefits: Your bonus to damage and Critical Confirmation rolls increases to +4.

    Fachan look like Ogres with one eye, arm and leg. Indeed they are a genetic offshoot of the Ogre species, and about 1 in 400 births result in a Fachan. They are overly muscled with dark gray brown skin, and their eye is purple with a white pupil. Note this Fachan is the version from the old Creature Catalogue insert.

    Rock Throwing (Ex): The range increment is 60 feet for a Fachan’s thrown rocks.

    Regain Footing (Ex): Fachan may stand up from a Prone position as a Swift Action.

    Skills: Fachan gain a +8 Racial Bonus on Jump and Listen Checks.

    Combat: Fachan prefer to soften opponents with rocks before moving in to melee.
