    Key Note: This was done due to Veyr getting banned and his post obviously not being able to be added to.

    Veyr's Fleshwarping: A List of Grafts, Symbionts, and Related Goodies

    This thread has very little of my own work and I take no credit for nearly anything in here. I changed a few things in some other peoples work for balance as I saw fit and would like to know if the community agrees with the content within.

    I give full credit to those who originated these ideas. Not sure where I got them all (grabbed them a while back and only now got to posting this) so let me know when you see your work and I'll put your name where it belongs.

    This is work in progress so please PEACH (for example) the level obtainable and price tables. Please make suggestions and direct me to more daelkyr half-blood feats, symbionts, class options and so forth. The more the merrier.

    Additionally, you and I both know this thing is disgustingly formatted. For the obvious "dude that's just sh*t" I'll take care of those things as time permits. For the things that are maybe oversights, please feel free to "hey give this a go" and I'll getir done.

    TY! ;D

        You have the ability to meld symbionts into your being, hiding them from sight but also removing their benefits.
        Prerequisite: Symbiont Mastery, Con 15+
        Benefit: You may submerge symbionts into your body at the cost of 1 hp per symbiont. This hp damage does not heal as long as you have the symbiont that dealt it submerged. You may emerge a single symbiont at a time at the cost of one hp as a move action. You may also emerge more than one at a time, as few or as many as you choose, as a full-round action which still cost 1 hp to emerge each.

        Your tie to your bretheren grows stronger, as does your reliance on them.Prerequisite: Symbiont Mastery, Chosen Child of the Warped Ones
        Benefit: You gain an additional +2 hp per symbiont. You also must have at least two symbionts attached or your feel the effects of your symbiont dependancy. When you begin to die from symbiont dependency, you now take two points of Con damage each 24 hour period.

        Through depraved intervention, you have a closer tie to your daelkyr parent than most of your mixed heritage.
        Prerequisite: Daelkyr Half-Blood
        Benefit: You grow a second Personal Symbiont from your flesh. The same rules that apply to the original Personal Symbiont apply to this second one.

        Through a mix of curious biological study and insight gifted by alien minds, you have learned to shape the growth of life and flesh to suit your needs.
        Prerequisites: Daelkyr Half-Blood, Chosen Child of the Dark Ones, character level 3
        Benefit: Your Personal Symbiont can be re-grown and evolve, gaining varying benefits. Upon taking this feat you gain benefits to your selected symbiont. You absorb your symbiont into yourself for the duration of the evolution (the 2d4 days required to grow a symbiont), after which the symbiont emerges in an new and improved state. Evolutionary traits depend on the kind of symbiont, and your level. The benefits of this feat only extend to the symbiont obtained from your race, not to any other symbionts obtained from class features, feats, buying, finding etc.

    * The Cerebral Hood , Hulk Skin, and Mind Leech symbionts are frighteningly good: the base cost for an item that does what each of them does (barring Ego conflicts and the Int damage) is between 110,000 and 275,000 gp. Moreover, they're all much better than such an item would be, because they are creatures with their own actions, and therefore using their abilities doesn't require yours. However, the DC on all of their abilities is 17, which by the time you could afford these kinds of costs, is worthless. Thus, I suggest treating them as Minor Artifacts: they are very much rewards, powerful ones, for a DM to give players. Of course, getting one probably means getting past someone who is using them, which should be quite challenging.


    Also, not sure how to price out the shadow symbionts. I don't think they should have a benefit via the Engineer of Flesh feat as they can't be grown, they must be found.

    CHANGE LOG: ((started 25SEP11))
    Spoiler
    Show

    25Sep11: Added Symbiont Self Containment feat.
    18Dec11: Changed Engineer of the Flesh to have greater benefits and give benefits starting whenever the symbiont in question is available. As for balance, remember that one has to have a symbiont or begin to die. As they are killable I see this as a major balancing factor for the benefits gained. Also made available at lvl 3.
    27Jul12: Changed formatting, gave credit and a link for Veyr's work as it should be available.

    The Clockwork Herald was used by the army commanders during war times to receive messages from his subordinates and commanding officers. The small workings of this construct appear as a lens attached to a mechanical version of a humming bird. It places its body over one of the eyes of the host and lays its body against the side of the host's head with a wing placed over the ear. This takes the place of goggles.

    This small machine like creation is very useful to find criminals who are skilled at disguise aswell as to recognize those who are either speaking or sending a message to the host. The Clockwork Herald is very methodical; it seeks the leader of a group and presents itself to that person.

    Its abilities include receiving messages at any distance from a person that has been memorized by the Herald, recognizing a previously met person even if they are disguised, and increasing the host's senses.

    The Clockwork Herald usually speaks Common, but any one language (except secret languages) chosen upon its construction.

    Combat
    The Clockwork Herald can only attach itself to a willingly or helpless host(as a full-round action). Attaching or removing the Clockwork Herald deals 1d2 Wisdom damage. A Will save DC 10 can negate the Wisdom damage.

    Host Benefits: While wearing the Clockwork Herald the host can record a person's defining factors (i.e. facial features, voice, body's build/stance, Etc.) and add it to the Herald's memories. Memorizing the person take the following factors; the host must be within 30 feet of the person, the Herald must be able to see and hear the person, the host and person must not be attacking or threatened. There are a total of 10 personnel slots available in the Herald’s memory.
    The sender must have had themselves added to the Clockwork Herald's Memory to use this next function. This function allows the Message spell to be received by the Herald from any distance, unless the sender and host aren't on the same plane or one is in an extra-dimensional space. The message is only heard by the host, then can be recorded and saved by the Herald at the request of the host; a total of 5 messages can be stored at any time. The Herald can play any of the stored messages at the request of the host.

    A tiny slug, almost unnoticed, slides by. Were it not for the pulsing colors beneath the bilious skin and the human teeth growing along its back, one might have completely forgotten its presence.

    Detection worms are very small, almost unnoticeable, naturally occurring symbionts that have found their way into even Gatekeeper use. They have the ability to know where aberrations and other creatures hide, usually ferreting them out despite any wards or protections they may have.
    A detection worm does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A detection worm can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a detection worm to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally. Detection worms also attach themselves to sleeping creatures in attempts to draw nutrients from the host.

    Attaching or removing a detection worm deals 1d3 points of Constitution damage.

    Host Benefit: A creature with an attached detection worm can detect aberrations as if studying a location for three rounds at will, using only a swift action to do so.
    Telepathy (Su): A detection worm can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    This massive, burly figure, scarcely humanoid, lurches on a heavy frame, holding out three-fingered fists while the interior of its empty chest squirms with mauve polyps.

    Dockmen aren't men, and indeed, like most symbiotic creatures, hermaphroditic. They are workhorse symbionts, and are very simple minded creatures, almost incapable of even forming coherent thoughts to communicate to their hosts.
    A dockman does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A dockman can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a dockman to gain its benefits or encounters one accidentally. A dockman encloses most of the host's body, including legs, arms, and parts of the chest, inside a massive frame useful for carrying heavy objects.

    Attaching or removing a dockman deals 1 point of Constitution damage.

    Host Benefit: A creature with an attached dockman gains a +4 natural armor bonus, becomes a Large-sized creature, and gains a +8 bonus to its Strength score. The host's base movement speed drops to 10 feet and is treated as though he or she were wearing heavy armor with an armor check penalty of -10 for the purposes of movement. The host cannot use the dockman's crush, but can use the Strong Back ability. A host wearing a dockman cannot use weapons or make attacks.
    Crush (Ex): If a dockman is holding an object, it can, as a full round action, make an attack that deals double normal damage and ignores the object's hardness.
    Strong Back (Su): A dockman can, once per day, increase its own or its host's Strength score by +10. This ability lasts until the dockman moves more than ten feet.
    Telepathy (Su): A dockman can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    This slime is hungry, very hungry. It can hide within the body of the host feeding on the bodies excess things in other words wastes. It distributes itself throughout the host's body. When the host wills the symbiont into action it quickly flows out of the pores, open wounds, or mouth/orifices and becomes thick. It sits on the body striking at nearby creatures and can be used to make long ranged unarmed strike.

    Looking at the grounds of the mansion you are casing, you notice a guard with puslating fleshy strand wrapped over his eyes and ears. Ah drat, you think to yourself. A perception tentacle! This place isn't going to be as easy to break into as you thought...

    A mass of sensory organs wrapped in a ropy length of muscle, a perception tentacle integrates itself into it's host's visual and auditory senses, granting improved detection capabilities. Usually wrapping itself around the eyes and ears of its host (this does not diminish the host's sight or hearing in any way, as is uses the tentacle's "eyes and ears" to aid). Unfortunately, this also means that it is very difficult to hide a perception tentacle. Attaching or removing a perception tentacle deals 1d3 points of wisdom damage.
    Combat
    A perception tentacle latches on to willing or helpless creatures, drawing nourishment from their connection.
    Nerve Slap: If a tentacle hits with it's slam attack, it can secrete a stinging oil. This oil attacks the victim's nervous system, dazing them with pain for one round. Fort save DC 10 negates. Cannot use if attached to a host.
    Host Benefits: A host enjoys a +4 bonus on it's listen and spot checks, as well as a +2 insight bonus to initiative. It's increased detection capabilities give it that extra moment's notice.

    Restless armors are a rare form of naturally occurring symbiont that are the precursor to the living breastplate symbiont. They look like animated studded leather with a large eye in the center of the chest piece and a primitive mouth.

Attaching or removing deals 1d3 Dexterity damage to the host.
    Host Benefit: A Skewer Ant acts as a buckler its shell becoming harder than steel. The buckler form of the Skewer Ant gives a +1 Shield bonus to AC.

    A toddler lurches forward into the light, her face a smooth patch of skin and the front of her body covered in tiny, writhing tendrils. Despite a lack of mouth, it still seems to squeal and cry as a normal child.

    Sob sisters are symbionts who play upon the deep-seated protective qualities of humanoid creatures for their young, as well as the fears of loss and the sorrow that accompanies the end of a war. They can also attach to willing hosts, wrapping themselves around the host from behind, like a child riding piggy-back, providing a small measure of hope to the host and provoking irrational sadness in others.
    A sob sister does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A sob sister can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a sob sister to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally.

    Host Benefit: A creature with an attached sob sister can use its dirge and hope abilities.
    Despair (Su): A sob sister generates an aura of despair when not attached to a host. Anyone who can see and hear the sob sister must make a Will save (DC 16) or suffer a -2 penalty on attack rolls, damage rolls, and saves against fear. The saving throw is made only once per encounter, and a creature that makes a successful save is immune to this effect for 24 hours. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.
    Dirge (Su): A sob sister attached to a host can start to generate an aura of despair as a swift action, playing on the subconscious sympathies in every living being. Any enemy within 60 feet who can see or hear the host suffers a -1 penalty to attack rolls, damage rolls, and saves against fear. This is a mind-affecting fear effect.
    Hope (Su): A sob sister attached to a host gives it some small measure of comfort. A sob sister's host gains a +1 morale bonus on Will saves.

    With a clatter, a misshapen crab-like creature scuttles forward. Excess deep blue chitinous plating seems to flop and bounce all over as the carapace crab rushes toward it's unconscious target. The crab jumps onto the unwitting victim, and suddenly the purpose behind all those loose chitin places is revealed. They wrap around the humanoid in a flash, covering a substantial amount of the victim in hard carapace. With a last wriggle, the crab secures itself, and sends it's feeders into the target. Attaching or removing a carapace crab deals 1d3 points of Wisdom damage.

    This small, bruise-violet slug resembles a manta ray. It writhes, agitated, and produces a sound not unlike a rattlesnake before leaping into the air and screeching with an unearthly cry.

    Control slugs are symbionts that can influence the actions of others. They may be related to puppeteers in some way, warped by the Daelkyr, or else are some form of native life to Xoriat with a useful ability. Either way, some cults of the Dragon Below outfit their leaders with these wonderful creatures.
    A control slug does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    A control slug can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a control slug to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally. A control slug hides on the small of its host's back, digging its teeth and stinger into the host's spine for nourishment and to link to its host's nervous system.

    Spell-like abilities: (DC 12 + spell level) 3/day – charm person, 1/day – dominate person. When attached to a host, a control slug cannot use its spell-like abilities.
    Telepathy (Su): A control slug can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    Flame gloves evolved from crawling gauntlets that were exposed to creatures with the fire subtype. Ever since the daelkyr have created hundreds of flame gloves for their servitors.
    A flame glove does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon and Ignan.

    Combat
    A flame glove can attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature either seeks out a flame glove to gain its benefits or encounters it accidentally. A flame glove attaches by sinking tendril into the host’s arm.
    Attaching or removing an flame glove deals 1d3 points of Wis damage.

    Host Benefits: A creature with an attached flame glove gains a claw attacks that deal damage as a crawling gauntlet plus 1 point of fire damage. They are treated as magic for the purpose of overcoming damage reduction. Once every round, the host can make a ranged touch attack to deal 1d4 points of fire damage to any one target within 60ft. A flame glove does not attack on its own while attached to a host.

    Flame Gout (Su): Once every other round, a flame glove can make a ranged touch attack that deals 2d4 points of fire damage to any one target within 60ft.

    Symbiont Traits: See page 299 of the Eberron Campaign Setting.

    Telepathy (Su): A flame glove can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    This small scarab looks like a piece of jewlery until its legs twitch to life revealing its true nature, its carapace shines with a slick viscus layer making shine like and polished agate. A pair of razor sharp mandibles fold out from its head.From its underside a set of arms held close to its body unfold into two small arms each tipped with strange shaped hands.
    Heart scarabs are a special Symbiotic Subtype, nearly harmless to those with heartier bodies. This very small beetle can burrow into the ground or flesh of willing or helpless creatures. It can burrow into relaxed flesh only tense muscles hinder it from burrowing freely into flesh. Its smooth carapace is covered in viscous mucus like film which allows it to move freely through flesh and organs secreting a regenerating slime which heals the host's flesh that it has damaged slightly as it moved about.
    The Heart Scarab attaches to the host's heart pressing its six legs into the cardiac muscle its limbs cause no damage to the host's heart just in a sleep like rest. If the host is ever in extreme danger or communicates to the scarab it awakens ready to work. It can deliver a light electrical current through the host's heart affectively keeping it beating even after death.
    A Heart Scarab does not speak any Language, but it can understand Undercommon.
    Ego
    Ego Score: 0(-3 Int, +1 wis, -2 cha, +2 electric damage, +1 Flesh burrow, +1 Reverse Flesh Heal.)
    Combat
    A Heart Scarab can only attach itself to a willingly or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature either seeks out a Heart Scarab to gain its benefits or encounters it accidently. The Heart Scarab makes a surgical like incision in the skin using its razor sharp mandible and burrows through the flesh to the host's heart attaching to it. Attaching or removing it deals 1d2 constitution damage.
    Flesh Burrow (Ex):A Heart Scarab can burrow through bodies of creatures which are either dead or helpless at a speed equal to its burrow speed. Burrowing through flesh causes no damage to the creatures’ body, because the Heart Scarab secretes healing mucus that instantly heals any damage caused by the Heart Scarab's movement and only the movement of the Heart Scarab.
    Host Benefits: Once per round during the host's turn, the Heart Scarab can, as a free action jumpstart the host's heart the same round the host dies. The host is left stabilized at -9 HP. This ability can't be used on any other round than the round the host has died.
    Electric Damage (Ex): The Heart Scarab's ability to send a current through the body of its host allows it to channel it into the flesh of the host; the effect is that when the host wields a metal weapon he deals an extra 1d4 electric damage this also applies to the host's unarmed strike. This deals 1 point of subdual to the host each time used. The host may communicate to the Scarab to not send out this electrical pulse.
    Reverse Flesh Heal (Su): Heart Scarabs can move freely through a host when the host is completely relaxed (helpless or unconscious). At that time the Heart Scarab can take pieces of the host a alter them to be used to heal damages that have caused to the host's body. The Heart Scarab as a standard action can heal 1d8+2 damage by dealing 1 point of constitution damage to the host. This ability cannot be used be used if it would reduce the host's constitution score to 0.

    A pile of waving tendrils and bony plates, with eyes gleaming like gemstones, crawls ever forward, pulsing lights dancing over pulpous flesh. Two sinuous tentacles dance over the earth, searching for unseen purchases on the rough surface.

    A rarity among symbionts, keratin sages are creatures that offer their hosts stores of knowledge as well as advice about the world at large. Not normally as twisted as their symbiont brethren, these creatures are content to simply ride along and experience the world, emotions, and discovery vicariously through their hosts.
    A keratin sage does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon, Common, Daelkyr, Draconic, Elven, and Giant.

    Combat
    A keratin sage can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a keratin sage to gains its benefits, encounters one accidentally, or is sought out by one. The creature can attach to any number of sundry locations, from the host's forehead to the base of the neck, the arm, the back, and so on, and indeed, attaches itself wherever it is convenient to the host, rather than the first place that presents itself.

    Attaching or removing a keratin sage deals 1d3 points of Constitution damage.

    Host Benefit: A creature with an attached keratin sage gains no obvious benefit, but the creature can see through the host's eyes and sense what it senses, making the host capable of vicariously using the keratin sage's knowledge skills and Research feat, as well as its psi-like ability.
    Blinding Flash (Ex): As a standard action, a keratin sage can activate all its biolights at once, generating an intense wave of light that blinds onlookers for one round. A Fortitude save (DC 11) negates the effect. That save DC is Constitution based. This ability does not function if the creature is attached to a host.
    Psi-like Abilities (Ps): 2/day – call to mind.
    Telepathy (Su): A keratin sage can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    Skull mantles were created by the daelkyr as a way to create elite tracking units, the result was a snake-like creature with a draconic skull that can be retracted into its body.
    A skull mantle does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A skull mantle can attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature either seeks out a skull mantle to gain its benefits or encounters the skull mantle accidentally. The skull mantle attaches by sinking tendril on the bottom of its body into the host’s spinal column and extending its skull-like head over the host’s head.
    Attaching or removing a skull mantle deals 1d3 points of Con damage.

    Host Benefits: A creature with an attached skull mantle gains a natural tail attack that deals 1d6 points of damage, when attached to a medium creature. It also gains a climb speed of 20ft, low-light vision, darkvision out to 60ft, the scent ability, and the benefits of the Track feat.

    A brown and purple cuttlefish possessed of a mantle not unlike a carapaced human hand, six eyes glowing with arcane energy, and a mass of waving tentacles leaps out of the shadows.

    Spellfilter claws are rare, magical symbionts that bond with spellcasters. They tend to keep to themselves, but are often pressed into service by cultists of the Dragon Below for their sorcerers or wizards, and are used as a method to pass around the secrets of manipulating and filtering magic.
    A spellfilter claw does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A spellfilter claw can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a spellfilter claw to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally. Spellfilter claws attach themselves to the hand and forearm of their host, and when the host casts arcane spells, the "hand" of the symbiont dances with ethereal green energy, and its eyes flash a variety of sickening colors.

    Attaching or removing a spellfilter claw deals 1d3 points of Constitution damage.

    Host Benefit: A creature with an attached spellfilter claw gains access to the symbiont's metamagic feat, which can be used normally. In addition, the host can choose to suffer an amount of Constitution burn equal to the adjustment of the spell's level due to the metamagic feat to apply that metamagic feat to a spell without increase the spell's level or casting time.
    Spells: A spellfilter claw casts spells as a 3rd-level sorcerer. It does not have access to these spells if it is attached to a host.
    Telepathy (Su): A spellfilter claw can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    A Swiftjerker's individual silver-dollar sized bodies are nearly completely transparent and appear almost as crabs with a toughened membrane in place of shell. It stands upon six long, thin legs that give it an agile appearance. A mass of silvery tendrils extend from its belly in all direction out to five feet, rising into the air or feeling along the ground. They are only barely visible as glints in the air, being far finer than hairs. These tendrils twist and meld with dozens of other jerkers like individual parts of a single creature. When attached to a psionic creature they flicker with a vague white fire within.

    Swiftjerkers are phenomenally swift, as they don't act, but react with explosive bursts of sudden, inexplicable speed. Despite this they are weak and their mode of locomotion painfully slow so that they often fall prey to predators. To increase their chances of survival they thus meld with larger, more powerful creatures and enhance their ability to react to their surroundings, making it more likely for both host and symbiont to survive.

    It is speculated that swiftjerkers are partially responsible for the evolution of the Xephs, having become true symbionts that now breed true. This supposition is further strengthened by the fact that the Xeph rifts are amongst the favorite locale of the swiftjerkers, and that Xephs are completely immune to the swiftjerker's attempts at joining.

    Swiftjerkers subsist on the electrical energy of their host, though they hardly drain enough to be noticed. They do not understand or speak any language but their own, an instinctive sharing of informationg through electrical impulses.

    Combat
    Swiftjerkers often hide within cracks or above ledges, waiting for a potential host to pass through. If they are in an area small enough they link together to form a web-like obstruction. Creatures passing through are immediately shocked, giving the symbionts a chance to join with the beast. Swiftjerkers are particularly attracted to psionic creatures, energized and fed by the flow of psi energy.

    Attach (Ex):
    A swiftjerker swarm can, as a full round action, completely envelope the body of a helpless creature, attaching to key muscle groupings and along the spinal column. They then thread their tendrils throughout their host's body and meld with those of other jerkers to form an enhancement to the neural-muscular system. These tendrils then feed into the jerker who attaches to the base of its opponent's skull. It in turn melds with special portions of the brain itself. Xephs are immune to the attachment of a swiftjerker.

    Detect Psionics (Ps):
    A swiftjerker can continuously sense psionic creatures as the Detect Psionics power.

    Paralyzing Shock (Ps):
    The neural energy coursing through the swiftjerkers deals 1d6 electricity damage to any living creature who end their round in the jerker's space. Those whom take damage must succeed on a DC 11 fortitude save or fall into paralyzing spasms for 1 round per damage dealt. Once attached it loses this ability, instead using this energy to enhance the host. The save DC is Charisma based.

    Share Power (Su):
    Any power or spell the host creature manifests or casts on itself also affects the symbiont. Additionally, the host may cast a spell with a target of “You” on the symbiont instead of on itself. Likewise, a symbiont can choose to have any power or psi-like ability it uses on itself also affect the host creature, and may manifest a power with a target of “You”; on its host instead of on itself. The host and symbiont can share spells and powers even if the spells or powers normally do not affect creatures of the host or symbiont's type. Powers or spells targeted on the host by another caster or manifests do not affect the symbiont, and vice versa.

    Host Benefits: At will - Burst. Each time the swiftjerker uses the Burst ability it drains 1 power point from its host. If the host is a non-psionic creature it takes 1d4 points of non-lethal damage from the exertion.
    Swift As Thought (Ex): The host of a swiftjerker find themselves reacting so quickly to their surroundings that they have the sensation of the entire world slowing around them. The new tendril connection produces reaction time far superior to the original creature's, forming a sort of neural shortcut. This provides the host with a +2 enhancement bonus to reflex saves and a +6 enhancement bonus to initiative checks.
    Creatures with a power point reserve also gain Evasion, being drained of 1 power point for each use.

    Upon a roll of 1 when these enhancements would be used the signals of the host and symbiont conflict violently. This surge of random impulses stuns the host for 1 round.

    Skills: Swiftjerker's have a +4 racial bonus on Climb and Move Silently checks. They have a +8 racial bonus on Balance checks. They use their Dexterity modifier instead of their Strength modifier for Climb. A swiftjerker can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened.

    Eldritch claws are rare symbionts that bond with spellcasters giving them greater versatility with their spells. Eldritch claws were created from oversized illithid tadpoles exposed to the husk of infinite worlds.
    They appear much like large manta rays with a retractable, hand like appendage with a circular mouth seated in the center of the “hand“.
    An eldritch claw does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    An eldritch claw can only attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out an eldritch claw to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally. It attaches by wrapping its ray-like fins around the host’s arm and covering the hand in the extendable mouthpiece.
    Attaching or removing an eldritch claw deals 1d3-1 points of Int damage.

    Host Benefit: The host gains a claw attack that deals the same damage as a crawling gauntlet. The host can use the eldritch claw’s eldritch blast ability and Empower Spell-like Ability feat. Additionally, the host can channel a touch or ray spell into the eldritch blast, a target hit by the eldritch blast is also affected by the channeled spell.

    Eldritch Blast (Sp): An eldritch claw can create an eldritch blast as a 5th level warlock.

    Telepathy (Su): An eldritch claw can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    Spellknights were created by daelkyr half-blood sorcerers and wizards as a way to increase their defense without wasting spells. Spellknights are unique in that, they are not used by the daelkyr. When not attached to a host, a spellknight looks like a sphere of silver with eldritch markings of a deep crimson or violet color. When it is attached to a host, it looks like an incomplete suit of silver half plate with the same runes on it.
    A spellknight does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A spellknight can only attach itself to a willing host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature seeks out a spellknight to gains its benefits or encounters one accidentally. It attaches by unfurling into a suit of armor that is then donned by the host.
    Attaching or removing a spellknight deals 1 point of Con damage.

    Shadow Symbionts
    Spoiler
    Show

    by Igor Calija
    Outsider (Extraplanar, Symbiont)
    Shadow symbionts are mysterious beings from the Plane of Shadow. Appearing on their home plane as harmless amorphous blobs of shadow-stuff, these sentient creatures can assume the form of an object, typically a garment, and enter a symbiotic relation with a willing planewalker in order to be taken away from the Plane of Shadow.
    When worn, shadow symbionts begin to feed on the wearer's life energy, and grant him special benefits in return. The shadow symbionts often feel incomplete if separated from each other, and try to influence their wearer to find the missing symbionts.
    COMBAT
    Shadow symbionts damage Charisma from their hosts when using their special abilities. See descriptions below. This Charisma damage cannot reduce the host's total below 1.
    A host can also actively suppress the activation of a symbiont's protective ability by making a personality check (a Will save against a DC equal to the symbiont's Ego score; see symbiont traits below).
    Plane Shift (Su): When reduced to 0 or less hit points, a shadow symbiont spontaneously travels to the Plane of Shadow, as if using the plane shift spell. Normally it brings its host along, but the host can attempt a personality check (a Will save against a DC equal to the symbiont's Ego score) if he wants to remain behind. The symbiont can also plane shift to Shadow if it chooses to abandon its host.
    Symbiont Traits: A symbiont is attached to a part of the host creature's body, occupying one of the available magic item slots. Exterior symbionts can be attacked as objects, provoking an attack of opportunity from the host. A symbiont is also treated as an object in regard to taking damage from effects directed at the host (it uses the host's saving throws if they are better than its own). Like intelligent magic items, a symbiont has an Ego score used to resolve potential conflicts with the host. A symbiont acts on its host's turn, regardless of its own initiative. It is never flat-footed unless the host is, and it is aware of any danger the host is aware of.
    Skills: A shadow symbiont has a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks.

    Symbiont Traits: See page 299 of the Eberron Campaign Setting.


    SHADOW BOOTS
    This symbiont appears as a pair of fine, knee-high leather boots. It takes up the "boots" magic item slot.
    Shadow Door (Su): Once per day, as a free action, a shadow boots symbiont can transfer itself and its host to another location within 100 ft., as if using the dimension door spell. Both the starting point and the destination must be within an area of shadowy illumination. This ability drains 2 Charisma points from the host. A shadow boots symbiont automatically attempts to use this ability whenever it decides that the host is in immediate physical danger (flanked, unconscious, falling, etc.)

    Life Guard (Su): Once per day, as a swift action, a shadow cloak symbiont can save its host from a potentially lethal spell effect. When the host would be reduced to 0 or fewer hit points by damage in combat from a spell or spell-like ability (not a weapon or other special ability), the cloak can halve this damage. The host and symbiont must be aware of the attack and able to react to it - if denied their Dexterity bonus to AC, the life guard cannot be activated. This ability drains 2 Charisma points from the host. A shadow cloak automatically attempts to use this ability whenever the host would be reduced to 0 or fewer hit points by a spell or spell-like effect.

    Sky scourges were created by illithid spellcasters as a way to create aerial combat units, the result was a beetle-like creature with demonic wings that connected with its host.
    A sky scourge does not speak any language, but it understands Undercommon.

    Combat
    A sky scourge can attach itself to a willing or helpless host (as a full-round action). In general, a creature either seeks out a sky scourge to gain its benefits or encounters the sky scourge accidentally. The sky scourge attaches by sinking tendril on the bottom of its body into the host’s back and wrapping its legs around the hosts torso.
    Attaching or removing a sky scourge deals 1d3 points of strength damage.

    Host Benefits: A creature with an attached sky scourge gains a fly speed of 60ft with good maneuverability, the host also gains the benefit of the sky scourge’s feats (Flyby Attack and Hover). While attached to a host, the sky scourge does not attack on its own.

    Symbiont Traits: See page 299 of the Eberron Campaign Setting.

    Telepathy (Su): A sky scourge can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    A large blob of living goo surges onto the peasant, quickly encasing her. She no longer looks like herself: she is larger, stronger, more savage... and in a bad mood. The newly formed beast hunches over and gives a roar, bounding into the nearest man. It rakes him with razor claws, then picks him up and smashes him to the ground with little effort.

    A hulk skin is a symbiont that gifts its host with great strength, speed and stamina, as well as a veritable natural arsenal. It covers the host like a second skin, except that it significantly increases the overall mass. A single solid colour, with occasional patterns, an englufed host is unrecognizable. Unfortunately, these symbionts are strong-minded and like to take control, to further their own plots. Which happen to be smashing and killing anything they feel like.

    Combat
    A host becomes a killing machine when bonded to a hulk skin. Attaching or removing a hulk skin deals 1d3 points of constitution and wisdom damage. Also, one point of wisdom damage is drained every day, resulting in a net -1 to wisdom while the symbiont is worn.

    Host Benefits:

    Enhance Body (Ex): The host gets a +6 bonus to strength, +4 to constitution, and +4 to dexterity.

    Powerful Build: Physical stature increases, letting the host function in many ways as though she were one size category larger. Whenever a host is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check, she is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to her. Also considered one size larger when determining whether a creature's special attacks based on size can affect her, and for carrying capacity. Can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, space and reach remain those of a creature of the host's actual size. Benefits of this stack with the effects of powers, abilities and spells that change the subject's size category.

    Natural Attacks: Host gets a bite for 1d8 damage, and two claw attacks for 1d6 damage each. Also, all unarmed strikes are considered armed, and do lethal damage as though the host were one size larger (1d4 for medium size). The host has access to the skin's improved grapple feat while bonded. A side effect of the savage nature of the hulk skin is that the host gets a -4 on all attacks made with manufactured weapons. The overwhelming desire to rend and tear with your bare hands impairs any training or logical thought. Damage given assumes medium sized host.

    Uncanny Dodge: Host retains dexterity bonus to AC regardless of being caught flat-footed or being struck by an invisible attacker. Dex to AC is still lost if immobilized.

    Superior Movement: The host gains a 20 foot climb speed. Gains the benefits of the Run feat, and height is no longer a limiting factor in a jump.

    Thick Skin: Grants a +2 bonus to the host's natural armor. If the host does not have natural armor, treat their natural armor score as 0.

    Hungry(Ex): With great power comes great hunger. The host must consume three times the normal amount of food and water every day while bonded. Any organic matter can be consumed (host is immune to filth fever disease, if from an in ingested source) and the symbiont has carnivorous tendencies. The flesh of intelligent victims is particularly enjoyed and will pacify the symbiont, negating the wisdom damage for the next day.

    Telepathy: Can communicate telepathically with its host, if its host has a language.

    Symbiont Traits: See page 299 of the Eberron Campaign Setting.

    Well i have to admit i like quite a few of these symbionts and the feats are cool. I may contribute a bit to this in order to help expand my Daelkyr Bloodlord PrC

    I'll also see about incorporating those symbionts into the class as well. If you have ideas for the levels they can be incorporated into the PrC i'd appreciate it.

    Default Re: Daelkyr Half-Blood Conglomeration

    Couple of question in regards to your table.

    For example, you have the Angel Claws available to Generate at level 7. The player could already have Angel Claws by virtue of hitting level 5. What is your reasoning for delaying the Generation of Angel Claws. Mind you this is just and example, several of your others on the table have the same issue so I guess this question applies to all of those. I need to know your delay reasoning before I can suggest levels for the new ones. Otherwise I would suggest making them all available to the class one level lower than availabloe to a character who did not take the class.

    My suggestion is to make a change like this:

    Generate Symbiont (Ex): At 1st level, a daelkyr bloodlord can generate a symbiont from his own flesh. This process takes a 24-hour ritual and 100gp worth of magical and alchemical materials. For the purpose of deciding what symbiont he can generate, use his character level +1. As he advances in level, he can generate even greater symbionts. At level 6 treat his character level for symbionts as two higher, and three higher at level 10. Should his symbionts be killed, he can generate another one in a ritual identical to the first. Every three levels thereafter, a daelkyr bloodlord can generate another symbiont.


    By itself, this is a very interesting option. I actually grabbed it from DragoonWraith's Paragon class. Imagine taking that Paragon and then this prestige with the new change :p Also, if you wanted to limit things a bit, you can change it to this:


    Generate Symbiont (Ex): At 1st level, a daelkyr bloodlord can generate a symbiont from his own flesh. This process takes a 24-hour ritual and 100gp worth of magical and alchemical materials. At level 1 you must select a symbiont from the level 1 list. At level 4 you must select a symbionts from the level 5 list. At level 7 you must select a symbiont from the level 10 list. At level 10 you must select a symbiont from the level 15 list. If your character level, or effective character level, is high enough that you could select from a higher list of symbionts, you may do so. Should his symbionts be killed, he can generate another one in a ritual identical to the first. Every three levels thereafter, a daelkyr bloodlord can generate another symbiont.


    This suggestion is kind of the opposite of the original, instead of giving you the option of more powerfuol symbionts, just giving you more of what you would normally have at that level. To be honest, I would add this no matter how you go about it, option 1, option 2, or just adding things to your table:

    Generate Symbiont (Ex): Blah blah blah. More blah. If a symbiont derived from this class feature dies, or gets lost you must replace it with a symbiont from the same level list that the previous one was on.

    Additionally, I did some formatting to make the lists and such friendlier to look at.

    Actually that's only the case for daelkyr halfblood bloodlords, the bloodlord PrC can be taken by any race hence the stunted progression when compared to the halfbloods.

    I am going to be making a halfblood only PrC based around creating custom symbionts but it will take a long time to get down.

    Default Re: Daelkyr Half-Blood Conglomeration

    Generate Symbiont (Ex): Special: If the character taking this class is a Daelkyr Half-Blood add this to the Generate Symbiont class feature:

    For the purpose of deciding what symbiont he can generate, use his character level +1. As he advances in level, he can generate even greater symbionts. At level 6 treat his character level for symbionts as two higher, and three higher at level 10.

    Or...

    At level 1 you must select a symbiont from the level 1 list. At level 4 you must select a symbionts from the level 5 list. At level 7 you must select a symbiont from the level 10 list. At level 10 you must select a symbiont from the level 15 list. If your character level, or effective character level, is high enough that you couls select from a higher list of symbionts, you may do so.

    I think one of these would be good to add on that SPECIAL: circumstance of the race being Daelkyr Half-Blood. Of course the first one is preferrable, but hey, whatevs. That being said let me do a lil work and I'll post the new Table with the new Symbionts. Well, my suggestion for it at least ;)

    As for your class, sounds beasty! Mind if I toss a few ideas toward it?


    EDIT: Here's my suggestion for the updated table.

    Symbionts Available by Level

    {table=head]Level|Available Symbionts
    1st|Breed Leech, Crawling Gauntlet, Throwing Scarab, Restless Armor, Detection Worm, Dockman, Clockwork Herald, Jade Sludge, Perception Tentacle, Skewer Ant
    3rd|Skull Mantle, Spellwurm, Stormstalk, Winter Cyst, Fiendish Familiar, Shadow Sibling, Sob Sister, Carapace Shell, Cladonil, Control Slug, Flame Glove, Swiftjerkers
    5th|Angel Claws, Tentacle Whip, Gutworm, Heart Scarab, Keratin Sage
    7th|Tongue Worm, Spellfilter Claw, Spellknight, Psionic Sinew, Soul Tick
    9th|Sky Scourge, Spellknight, Eldritch Claw, Cerebral Hood, Mind Leech[/table]



    Take this or toss it as you will but here's my explanation for such dramatic changes. I don't think the Artifact level item Living Breastplate should be generatable by a PC much less at level 15 so I took it off as well as nbot adding the Hulk Skin. You made a comment about the level delay being because this class is available to non Daelkyr Half-Bloods. Then I noticed some of your symbionts were accessable to the taker of this class BEFORE the Half-Blood, so I took those down a notch to match with your previous comment. Now the odd placement (like putting Heart Scarab up a list before Swiftjerkers for example) was due to expected value as a player myself. I see Heart Scarab as way more useful than Swiftjerkers (for example) so I tossed it up a level. The others were made on the same very vague and ethereal scale.

    I am not changing the class feature, you can make an adaptation but it will not be directly changed.

    Send them over PM. It's a 5 level PrC that requires at least 10-15 levels prior to taking it. It has no need for spellcasting (instead requiring ranks in Heal, Knowledge (dungeoneering), and Craft (alchemy)) and does not grant it.

    It uses a modular, point-based system to build the symbionts which have 5 stages; Basic, Lesser, Intermediate, Greater, and Complex. Each level has a different cost and a minimum/maximum point cost. It also has mitigating factors but they are very minor, do not stack, and only take away one or two points (for ability damage and burn respectively), with the additional restriction of only being able to apply a small number of these factors.

    The abilities and host benefits will be the hardest part to determine.

    Ok, then I think I must be confused. The way it's written, when gaining level 10 for example, you may slay all symbionts gained from this class to be regenerated at level 10 options. Was that the intention? If not I would suggest a line specifying that.

    As for your class, dang, I didn't realize it was a high powered one. I'll do some work and PM it to you.

    3rd|Skull Mantle, Spellwurm, Stormstalk, Winter Cyst, Fiendish Familiar, Shadow Sibling, Sob Sister, Carapace Shell, Cladonil, Control Slug, Flame Glove, Swiftjerkers
    5th|Angel Claws, Tentacle Whip, Gutworm, Heart Scarab, Keratin Sage
    7th|Tongue Worm, Spellfilter Claw, Spellknight, Psionic Sinew, Soul Tick
    9th|Sky Scourge, Spellknight, Eldritch Claw, Cerebral Hood, Mind Leech[/table]
    Why move eldritch claw all the way from 5th to 9th level? I placed the symbionts where they are for a reason, they are not going anywhere. Besides, the eldritch claw is not the same power level as the other ones. And the cerebral hood should be at 7th level, psionic sinew should be 5th... please keep my list and just add the new stuff rather than reorganizing all of the ones i placed down.

    No, you'd have to kill the collective. And it's actually better to have lower level ones in addition to the higher level ones in a collective since the abilities being mixed and matched is actually better for a wider array of abilities that work together to make something better. But in theory you could indeed have all the higher level ones, it'd just be more disjointed and less focused than a more varied set. Trust me i've playtested it.

    It's not really that powerful, it's just complex

    Symbionts Available by Level
    Oh ok. I misread it I guess. I didn't know that you automatically added a Generated Symboint into the Collective. I thought you could choose to add one or not. If one COULD wait, I'd wait till 10, slay a regenerate, then add to my collective so I could have Uber Collective. But since a Generated Syhmbiont goes into the Collective on auto, guess it's not so bad. Mind you I wouldn't actually do this, just looking out for abuse.

    Next question, are all symbionts auto added once the Collective option is available? Or are only the Generated Symbionts auto added? The rest being optional when you want to add or not.

    As for powerful, I meant a level 10+ PRC. I don't normally mess with those types, so it'll take me some time to do my research for the help.



    {table=head]Level|Available Symbionts
    1st|Breed Leech, Crawling Gauntlet, Throwing Scarab, Restless Armor, Detection Worm, Dockman, Clockwork Herald, Jade Sludge, Perception Tentacle, Skewer Ant
    3rd|Skull Mantle, Spellwurm, Stormstalk, Winter Cyst, Fiendish Familiar, Shadow Sibling, Sob Sister, Carapace Shell, Cladonil, Control Slug, Flame Glove, Swiftjerkers
    5th|Angel Claws, Eldritch Claw, Tentacle Whip, Gutworm, Heart Scarab, Keratin Sage, Psionic Sinew
    7th|Tongue Worm, Spellfilter Claw, Spellknight, Cerebral Hood, Soul Tick
    9th|Sky Scourge, Mind Leech, Ghostly Visage[/table]

    Fixed.

    Also, does Daelkyr Ascendance DR stack with DR from Symbiont Adaptation? Or do you just take the higher number?

    Originally, this was a big, nasty post about how oh, you plagiarized Veyr's work, you're a terrible person, yada yada yada (not really but I was pretty... I dunno, had a lot of "righteous anger" about it).

    Then I reread your post and saw your thing about not attempting to take credit for things. Herp derp.

    Nonetheless, you have copied verbatim a substantial amount of work from Veyr, and should credit him for it.

    Further, you could Quote his post to get the formatting he used; it was better. His Fleshwarping list may also be worth linking, though perhaps not.
