    Default GiTP Pathfinder Grab Bag Competition IX - On the Origin of Species

    On the Origin of Species



    The creator of this image, adorety, has given their permission for it's use here.


    "Let me show you something that will make you feel young as when the world was new. "


    ~~~~~~~~~~


    This contest begins with the posting of this thread and continues through until the 30th of November.

    A poll will be opened shortly after the closing of the contest and everyone on the Playground will have the chance to vote until the 7th of December. You will be casting four votes, one for what you believe deserves first, second and third places and one for the entry you believe would most likely see play (either in a game you would DM/GM or in a game you yourself would play in) [Both types of votes may be for the same entry.]

    First, Second and Third place, as well as the winner of Most Likely to See Play, will receive a pixelated trophy that I create myself with my limited skills in Paint. In the case of any ties I will cast the tie breaking vote.

    Rules

    1. You will be creating an original Base Class or Monster or Prestige Class or Race that is themed around the concepts of prehistory, primeval environs or evolution in general. This could take the form of a base class that gains mystic strength from bone fetishes, a prestige class that has an animal companion and both individuals slowly devolve to more primitive, powerful forms, a monster that fossilizes living things by breathing upon them or a race of mammoth people.

    2. Your entry must be entirely complete. Incomplete contest entries will be disqualified upon the closing deadline of the contest.
    2a. Base and Prestige classes must have a name, completed class, and fluff for both combat and roleplaying purposes.
    2b. Monsters must have a name, completed stat-block, physical description, and ecology if any. Templates may be submitted as entries but will be judged based upon the example creature (which must be a previously statted NPC creature from the PSRD). A pre-application and post-application version of the creature must be included for comparison (a link to the NPC on the PSRD will suffice for pre-application).
    2c. Races must have a name, completed racial traits and fluff for both combat and roleplaying purposes.

    3. Entries must be Pathfinder, using the formats provided below. Using the provided formats is not a strict requirement but it makes reading and judging easier and may impact your chances in the contest if you deviate from it. You may "gussy up" your entries as you see fit as long as they are still comprehensible.

    4. Post all entries for the contest in this thread. Do not post any conversations regarding the entries here. Any and all discussions regarding this contest will take place on a separate thread: Here

    5. Only one entry is allowed per participant.

    6. Entries submitted must be original works that were created for this contest and this contest alone. Submitting plagiarized or previously posted work will result in said entry being automatically disqualified and may lead to inability to compete in this contest from then on.
    6a. Entries submitted to this contest may not be posted in a separate thread or format until the contest has come to a close. Any entries that are discovered to have been posted elsewhere during the contest's duration (such as to garner further attention and critiques) will be automatically disqualified.

    7. You may not reserve a post for an entry you plan to submit. You are more than allowed to tweak and edit your entry after it has been submitted (up until the deadline is reached) but the basic layout of your entry must be complete.

    8. Please state whether or not you would like comments or critiques on your entry upon its submission. Otherwise other contestants and Playgrounders watching the contest will most likely give your submission a once over and point out any flaws or other comments they may have seen in the chat thread.

    Returner of Old

    Put an image of your class here!

    All I desire, is for the future to become the present!

    Some aren't happy with the present, loathing how the world has been tainted by wealth, society, and war. Some desire to return the world to its beautiful, natural state, regardless of the consequences. The Returners of Old have the power to revert the land and its people to its primal state.

    Role: Returners of Old are strategic in combat, manipulating the terrain to their advantage, and weakening their foes. They can also utilise creatures of the past to their aid.

    Alignment: Returners of the Old can be of any alignment, but a large portion are lawful

    Quirksteed

    The silhouette of a horse can be seen amongst the murky fog in front of you. It nears at an alarming pace, and as it draws close you see more clearly a thick rubbery hide and vicious fanged maw.

    Treasure: None

    Distant cousins of horses and other equine animals, primeval Quirksteeds are much more deadly carnivores than their relatives, as well as much more difficult to train. Quirksteeds typically travel in familial herds to run down prey, usually by overrunning them with their clawed legs and returning for a (sometimes unnecessary) bite or two. Although technically a Quirksteed could eat almost anything, much like dragons, they have never been observed to eat anything other than fresh or cooked meat. They are not picky when it comes to the kind of meat and will become very aggressive, even to 'masters', if hungry.

    For the DM: Quirksteeds are strong-willed and somewhat overconfident, but noticeably less so when encountered on their own or in smaller numbers. If an opponent withstands their first few attacks they may simply turn and run, confident they can find an easier meal elsewhere. They usually only use their tail slap on opponents attempting to circle around them and reserve their clawed legs for their trample attacks unless a meal is being particularly stubborn.

    The Shaman

    Druids think they are the only masters of the wild. They do not remember there is another tradition, as ancient as they and as powerful...

    Druidic magic has been around since the beginning of the ages. The first humanoids in their simple huts and caves were often lead by these ancient nature priests, but in these days another form of nature magic was equally popular, equally powerful. These techniques have not survived the ravages of time and memory as druidic magic has, but they are beginning to make a comeback. These are the shamans- those who manipulate the power of the earth like Oracles manipulate the power of the gods and Sorcerers manipulate arcane magic. Revering ancient spirit totems, they use their abilities to become more than what they were, to evolve until they become the perfect blend of man and beast.

    Role:Shamans are a different approach to druidic spellcasting, and their focused totem and spontaneous spellcasting forces them to specialize. They excel in transformations and summoning as druids do, but with only certain animals based on their mysterious totem.
    Alignment: Any neutral.
    Hit Die: d8

    Class Skills:
    The shaman's class skills are Craft (Int), Fly (Dex), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Perception (Wis), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Spellcraft (Int), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str). In addition, Shamans gain additional class skills based on their choice of Totem Bond.
    Skill Points at Each Level: 4 + Int modifier
    Starting Wealth: 2d6 Χ 10 gp (average 70 gp.) In addition, each character begins play with an outfit worth 10 gp or less

    [/table]

    All of the following are class features of the shaman.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    Shamans are proficient with the following weapons: club, dagger, dart, quarterstaff, scimitar, scythe, sickle, shortspear, sling, spear, and any added by their Totem Bond. They are also proficient with all natural attacks (claw, bite, and so forth) of any form they assume with wild shift (see below).
    Shamans are proficient with light and medium armor but, like Druids, are prohibited from wearing metal armor; thus, they may wear only padded, leather, or hide armor. A shaman may also wear wooden armor that has been altered by the ironwood spell so that it functions as though it were steel. Shamans are proficient with shields (except tower shields) but must use only wooden ones.
    A shaman who wears prohibited armor or uses a prohibited shield is unable to cast shaman spells or use any of her supernatural or spell-like class abilities while doing so and for 24 hours thereafter.

    Divine Spells
    A shaman casts divine spells, which are drawn from the same spell list as the druid. Her alignment may restrict her from casting certain spells opposed to her moral or ethical beliefs; see Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells. A shaman may cast any spell she knows without preparing it ahead of time.
    To prepare or cast a spell, the druid must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a druid's spell is 10 + the spell level + the shamans's Charisma modifier.
    Like other spellcasters, a druid can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Her base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Shaman. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Charisma score (see Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells).
    Unlike the druid, a shaman’s selection of spells is extremely limited. A shaman begins play knowing four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells of her choice. At each new shaman level, she gains one or more new spells, as indicated on Table: Shaman Spells Known. Unlike spells per day, the number of spells a shaman knows is not affected by her Charisma score; the numbers on Table: Shaman Spells Known are fixed.
    In addition to the spells gained by shamans as they gain levels, each shaman also adds all summon nature’s ally spells to her list of spells known (all spells with the name “Summon Nature’s Ally”, and then a number). These spells are added as soon as the shaman is capable of casting them. This choice is made when the shaman gains her first level and cannot be changed. A shaman gains bonuses when summoning certain animals. This bonus is based on her totem bond.
    Upon reaching 4th level, and at every even-numbered shaman level after that (6th, 8th, and so on), a shaman can choose to learn a new spell in place of one she already knows. In effect, the shaman loses the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spell’s level must be the same as that of the spell being exchanged. A shaman may swap only a single spell at any given level, and must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time that she gains new spells known for the level. She cannot swap any cure or inflict spells, nor can she swap any spells gained from her mystery. Unlike a druid, a shaman need not prepare her spells in advance. She can cast any spell she knows at any time, assuming she has not yet used up her spells per day for that spell level.

    Chaotic, Evil, Good, and Lawful Spells
    A shaman can't cast spells of an alignment opposed to her own or her deity's (if she has one). Spells associated with particular alignments are indicated by the chaos, evil, good, and law descriptors in their spell descriptions. Certain totems allow the shaman to ignore this restriction.

    Orisons(Sp)
    Shamans learn a number of orisons, or 0-level spells, as noted on Table: Shaman Spells Known under “Spells Known.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they do not consume any slots and may be used again.

    Bonus Languages
    A shaman also knows Druidic, and is treated as a druid for purposes of teaching the Druidic language to non-druids. Shamans are forbidden from teaching this language to any non-druids. Druidic is a free language for a shaman: that is, she knows it in addition to her regular allotment of languages and it does not take up a language slot.

    Totem Bond(Ex)
    Each shaman gains inspiration and power from a totem. This totem grants additional weapon proficiencies and other special abilities. This totem can come from their tribe, their family, a druidic or shamanic circle they trained in, or a certain beast they dream of being more like. A shaman must pick one mystery upon taking her first level of shaman. Once made, this choice may be changed, but it may be corrupted. This rare event causes the Chaos Totem, which requires a feat to be acquired.
    At 2nd level, and every two levels thereafter (excepting 20th level), a shaman learns an additional spell derived from her totem. These spells are in addition to the number of spells given on Table: Shaman Spells Known. They cannot be exchanged for different spells at higher levels.

    Totem Companion(Ex)
    Each shaman is joined in her quest by a beast, an animal companion of her totem destined to be her companion. A shaman’s animal companion is dictated by her choice of totem (although some totems give choices between a few animals) Unlike normal animals of its kind, an animal companion's Hit Dice, abilities, skills, and feats advance as the shaman advances in level. If a character receives an animal companion from more than one source, her effective shaman levels stack for the purposes of determining the statistics and abilities of the companion. If a shaman has previous levels in a class that gives an animal companion and it is not one of the animals available through her totem, she must release her prior companion and gain a new companion of the options granted by her totem. Most animal companions increase in size when their shaman reaches 4th or 7th level, depending on the companion. If a shaman releases her companion from service, she may gain a new one by performing a ceremony requiring 24 uninterrupted hours of prayer in the environment where the new companion typically lives. This ceremony can also replace an animal companion that has perished.

    Wild Shift(Su)
    As the druid wild shapes into any animal her heart desires, the shaman may only shift into certain beasts, but gains absolute mastery when those forms. Wild shift is granted by all totems, but has different rules for each one. A shaman may wild shift 1/day at 4th level, and 1 more time per day every 2nd level after that.

    Totem Boon
    At 5th, 9th, and 17th levels, a shaman gains a certain ability from her totem bond. These abilities are listed in their totem.

    Half Shift(Su)
    At 11th level, the shaman gains a bizarre alternative to her wild shift. She may take a form that is an amalgamation of her human and totem shape, an anthropomorphic beast. This uses the same power as her regular wild shift, and expends one use per half shift.

    Totem Perfection
    At 20th level, the power of the shaman’s totem infuses their body, and they become a true embodiment of their totem. They gain the ability to Wild Shift (and Half Shift) at will, in addition to a unique ability listed in their Totem Bond.

    Totem Bonds

    Feather Totem
    Spoiler
    Show
    The majestic eagle, the gentle dove, the deadly swan- all of these birds are known for beauty and arial ability, though some are quite dangerous. A Feather Totem shaman learns to channel the noble beasts of the sky.
    Added Skill: Diplomacy
    Totem Spells:Speak With Animals(2nd), Eagle's Splendor(4th),Dominate Animal(6th), River of Wind(8th), Awaken(10th), Eagle Aerie(12th), Repulsion(14th), Euphoric Tranquility(16th), Winds of Vengeance(18th)
    Totem Companion: A Feather Totem shaman may choose an Axe Beak or Bird as an animal companion.
    Wild Shift: At 4th level, a Feather Totem shaman may turn into a Diatryma Axe Beak, Eagle, Emu, or Dodo. This ability functions like the beast shape I spell, except as noted here. The effect lasts for 1 hour per shaman level, or until she changes back. Changing form (to animal or back) is a standard action and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity.
    At 6th level, a Feather Totem shaman may also turn into an Axe Beak, Giant Falcon, Hawk, Ostrich, Owl, or Terror Bird Axe Beak. This ability now functions like the beast shape II spell.
    At 8th level, a Feather Totem shaman may now wild shift into a small or medium air elemental. When shifting into an elemental, the ability functions as the elemental body II spell.
    At 10th level, a Feather Totem shaman may now wild shift into a large air elemental. When shifting into an an elemental, the ability now functions as the elemental body III spell.
    At 12th level, a Feather Totem shaman may now wild shift into a huge air elemental. When shifting into an elemental, the ability now functions as the elemental body IV spell.
    Totem Boon(5th): At 5th level, a Feather Totem shaman learns how to summon animals for simple tasks, not just to harm others. When summoning any animal using a Summon Nature's Ally spell, the Shaman may choose to cast a special version of the spell. If they choose so, the spell's duration lasts for 1 hour per level. However, if the summoned animal is harmed or harms any creature or object, the spell instantly ends.
    Totem Boon(9th): At 9th level, a Feather Totem shaman learns to speak the languages of the earth and sky. They are able to speak all languages and understand any languages spoken to them, and can speak to birds at will (as if permanently treated under the effects of Speak With Animals, but for birds only). This does not give the Feather Totem shaman any additional abilities with written languages.
    Half Shift: A Feather Totem shaman gains the ability to transform into a more beautiful, agile, winged version of themself. It takes a full action to transform into this form. In this form, the shaman gains a fly speed equal to twice their land speed with good maneuverability, +4 to dexterity skill checks, and +4 to charisma skill checks. The effect lasts for ten minutes per shaman level, or until she changes back.
    Totem Boon(17th): At 17th level, you project an aura of beauty and grace, letting your allies imitate you. Allies in 30 feet of you gain a +2 bonus to dexterity skill checks, charisma skill checks, and an extra +2 bonus to the fly skill (making its bonus +4).
    Totem Perfection: At 20th level, your beauty and grace are apparent to all who see you. You gain a bonus to your saving throws equal to your charisma modifier, and permanently grow wings which cause you to gain a fly speed equal to your land speed. When you Half Shift, your fly speed is now equal to three times your land speed.


    Fur Totem
    Spoiler
    Show
    A shaman with this totem seeks to emulate the fierce and tough beasts of the forest, with tough hides and unyielding wills. A Fur Totem shaman seeks to be more like beasts such as bears, boars, and apes.

    Totem Spells:Endure Elements(2nd), Bear’s Endurance(4th),Resinous Skin(6th), Death Ward(8th), Stoneskin(10th), Ironwood(12th), Heal(14th), Blood Mist(16th), Regenerate(18th)
    Totem Companion: A Fur Totem shaman may choose an Ape, Baboon, Bear or Boar as an animal companion.
    Wild Shift: At 4th level, a Fur Totem shaman may turn into a Pig, Rock Baboon, Baboon, Boar,or Black Bear. This ability functions like the beast shape I spell, except as noted here. The effect lasts for 1 hour per shaman level, or until she changes back. Changing form (to animal or back) is a standard action and doesn't provoke an attack of opportunity.
    At 6th level, a Fur Totem shaman may also turn into a Dire Bear, Polar Bear, Dire Boar, Dire Ape, or Gorilla. This ability now functions like the beast shape II spell.
