    I was double checking since mindless creatures, as far as I remember, mindless listed under the special qualities.

    I really like Master Thief.

    My only issue is that I'm concerned about the capstone due to the lack of clear definition of what an ability is. Maybe something akin to the Ur-Priest or the factotum ability to duplicate class features?

    I figured my confusion about that out. Most pathfinder monsters that are mindless have "mind affecting immunity" listed for clarity.
    I agree with JoshuaZ about the capstone for the Master Theif, it is kinda vague, I think it would also be worth noting that if you nab something with a DC the DC should be calculated with your stats rather than what the monster had.

    Only for those who don't know the rules.
    And I specifically went with special ability rather than class feature because if you could steal a class feature, then you can steal spellcasting.

    @nikkoli: Yeah, that is implied. I just forgot to mention it. Honestly, I don't know why you'd even continue using the monster's DC. That is completely illogical. Still, I'll clarify it.

    So it can still steal class features, but only specific ones with marking as Special Abilities. Which, to be honest, is most of them.
    My most liked class, thematically, is the Artificer. Make free items! (fail by RAW to)Hold up the setting! Have access to every magic item...
    My most liked class, mechanically, is the Bard. I sing the enemy to death! (at level 21)I talk you into a suicidal fanatic! I need to cheese rules that make me sing as I fight or talk to get things done...

    I prefer t2 over anything else, because t2 lets you become anything. I think Psionics is more versatile than magic.

    If you mean "special ability" then I would suggest saying so, since "ability" is vague whereas "special ability" is clear in the rules context.

    New spin: what if you steal a dragons breath weapon while it is on cool down, would their coliform cool down time continue to tick while it is suppressed? And when you grab the ability would it be on cool down since what you grabbed wasn't ready to use?

    Good thinking. I didn't consider that. Also, daily uses, etc. I'm thinking that if it has a recharge time, you get it fully recharged, and when it goes back to the creature, they also get it fully recharged. However, something with daily uses doesn't get refilled. For instance, if it can be used 3/day and the creature has used it once, you get it with two uses left. Then if you expend both remaining uses, the creature gets it back empty.

    A pyrobear is a creature that looks much like a hairless bear that is enveloped in roaring flames.

    Combat
    A pyrobear is an astonishingly peaceful creature that seldom attacks unless provoked. However, when it does become angry enough, it furiously tears apart its aggressors with its claws and teeth.

    Flaming Body (Su): A pyrobear is continuously alight with magical fire. Its natural weapons deal an extra 2d6 fire damage, and any creature that attacks it with natural weapons or unarmed attacks takes that fire damage, as well. It also sheds light in a 60 foot radius with shadowy illumination out to 120 feet.

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a pyrobear must hit with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. Every round that the pyrobear successfully grapples an opponent, it deals 2d6 fire damage from its Flaming Body.

    An octobear has the body of an octopus with the head of a bear and has eight tentacles each ending in sharp claws. It is covered in water resistant fur.

    Combat
    An octobear is a vicious predator that attacks and eats anything smaller than itself.

    An opponent can attack an octobear’s tentacles with a sunder attempt as if they were weapons. An octobear’s tentacles have 15 hit points each. If an octobear is currently grappling a target with the tentacle that is being attacked, it usually uses another limb to make its attack of opportunity against the opponent making the sunder attempt. Severing one of an octobear’s tentacles deals 5 points of damage to the creature. An octobear usually withdraws from combat if it loses six tentacles. The creature regrows severed limbs in 1d10+10 days.

    Constrict (Ex): An octobear deals 2d8+12 points of damage with a successful grapple check.

    Improved Grab (Ex): To use this ability, a pyrobear must hit with a claw attack. It can then attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.

    Amphibious (Ex): Although octobears are aquatic, they can survive indefinitely on land.

    Ink Cloud (Ex): An octobear can emit a cloud of jet-black ink 20 feet high by 20 feet wide by 20 feet long once per minute as a free action. The cloud provides total concealment, which the octobear normally uses to escape a losing fight. All vision within the cloud is obscured.

    Jet (Ex): An octobear can jet backward once per round as a full-round action, at a speed of 200 feet. It must move in a straight line, but does not provoke attacks of opportunity while jetting.

    Skills: An octobear can change colors, giving it a +4 racial bonus on Hide checks. An octobear also can squeeze and contort its body giving it a +10 racial bonus on Escape Artist checks. An octobear has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.

    A timeraptor looks identical to a regular deinonychus.

    Combat
    A timeraptor tends to use hit and run tactics with its Time Hop and Pounce abilities.

    Pounce (Ex): If a timeraptor charges, it can make a full attack including two rake attacks.

    Rake (Ex): Attack bonus +13 melee, damage 1d8+2.

    Time Hop(Su): A timeraptor possesses the unique ability to travel through time. As a swift action, it can travel to any point in time within the last hour, remaining in the same location. It cannot go forward in time beyond the point of its original departure. If a timeraptor is in the past, it can make a special Time Pounce. It returns to the present, charges, full attacks, then immediately jumps back in time.

    Skills: A timeraptor has a +8 racial bonus on Hide, Jump, Listen, Spot, and Survival checks

    Octobear looks pretty fun. The Timeraptor may have slight issues: in general, any sort of backwards timetravel is an incredible headache for DMs. Presumably since it is a monster, that shouldn't be an issue: a DM can just choose not to introduce it, but be aware that the past-travel aspect will likely make people less likely to use it.

    Considering I am of the opinion that all of this has a precisely 0% chance of being used in any game ever, that's not a detriment.

    Update estimate maybe, since if it is ok with you, I'm totally going to use the Master Thief, Spell Void, and the Shadowknife in my next campaign, and I have an NPC where Master Thief would work really well for them.

    Time raptor is great. They are a bit tricky to fight, but the biggest weird thing for them is how do they know if something is in their charge range with timehop?
    Also I hope you want all this stuff to get used, I've built a warforged warden via tiger path, and it's come out pretty cool.

    Also I hope you want all this stuff to get used, I've built a warforged warden via tiger path, and it's come out pretty cool.
    Well, with a speed of 60 feet, most things are likely within their range. Melee battles tend to happen in a relatively limited area.

    Sweet. I hope you like it. :)

    I should clarify, I meant how does that raptor know when something moves into range once it's in the past, and what if the raptor hops to the past and encounters something like adventurers before it could go back to its point in the future? Or does it go more like this: raptor is roaming in current time, hops back an hour, then runs to your spot and hops back into current time?

    The Time Hop is an evasive maneuver. It exists in the present. When it encounters something to attack, it charges and Pounces as normal. If that doesn't kill its prey, it hops back in time to avoid counterattack. Then it jumps back and forth to attack and then hide within time. It assumes that its prey either won't move or will only move slightly before it returns.

    Default Badass

    The Badass

    Prerequisites:
    Character Level: 5
    Special: Must have spent a minimum of three combat encounters contributing virtually nothing to the battle despite your best efforts and must have been routinely mocked for it by your companions.

    ------------------------------

    Hit Die: d12

    Level BAB Saves Special
    1 +2 +4/+4/+4 Badass
    Class Skills (10 + Int)
    All

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency: All weapons, armor, and shields.

    Badass: A Badass gains the Badass subtype which provides the following traits:
    • All your ability scores increase to 14. If any were already 14 or higher, they increase by 2 points.
    • One chosen ability score increases by a further 4 points.
    • All of your current and future hit dice increase by one step (to a maximum of d12).
    • All scaling class features, such as sneak attack, spellcasting, or eldritch blast, are treated as if you were two levels higher in that class.
    • Once per encounter, you can treat a roll of a natural one as if it were a natural twenty.
    • You no longer auto fail saving throws on a natural one.
    • You gain Evasion, Mettle, and Uncanny Dodge. If you already had any of them, you gain the Improved version, instead.
    • You can always take 10 on all skill checks, even if rushed or threatened.
    • You gain one bonus feat for which you qualify. It can be a feat that can normally only be taken at first level.
    • You gain one spell-like or psi-like ability of 2nd level or lower from any list that is usable at will. If you choose a psi-like ability, you acquire the Psionic subtype if you do not already have it.
    • You gain a pair of sunglasses that grant a +4 competence bonus on all Charisma checks and Charisma-based skill checks. They provide permanent True Seeing. They also eliminate light sensitivity and light blindness. If your sunglasses are ever stolen, broken, or otherwise lost, you can pull a new pair out of your pocket.
    • You gain a leather coat. It is light armor that provides an AC bonus of 10 with no max dexterity bonus, no armor check penalty, and no arcane spell failure. It provides immunity to fire and death effects. It is indestructible and can be worn by monks and other such unarmored classes without interfering with their class features.


    Multiclassing
    Any class that imposes multiclassing restrictions can take a level in Badass and can still continue in their original class.

    Quote Originally Posted by Celestia

    At level seven, the Ghost Ray burns with an incredible heat. When using this ability, he can choose for it to deal fire damage. In addition, the Searing Ray can cause targets or flammable objects to catch fire if they fail a Reflex save versus a DC of 10 + 1/2 his level + his Charisma modifier.

    At level fifteen, the Ghost Ray can explode on contact, dealing its damage to all other creatures within a 20 foot radius burst of the target with a Reflex save for half. The Ghost Boy can choose to either use a normal Ghost Ray, a Searing Ray, an Explosive Ray, or an Explosive Searing Ray.
    The problem is that this won't affect creatures that aren't ethereal -- See Ghost Template. Is the ray ghost touched or not? Should the type of damage be force damage rather than untyped?

    From Ghost Template: "Speed: Ghosts have a fly speed of 30 feet, unless the base creature has a higher fly speed, with perfect maneuverability."

    The flight ability at 2nd level needs to be fixed since it seems to conflict with the Template. Can he choose between flying 30 feet with perfect maneuverability and flying 60 feet with good maneuverability? I'd just say he can fly at 60 feet at 2nd level and leave the perfect maneuverability and just increase the speed at the levels already mentioned.

    Intangibility (Su): A fifth level Ghost Boy can finally become intangible like a real ghost. As a swift action, he and all his gear can become incorporeal and receive all associated traits for a number of rounds equal to his level. This ability is usable a number of times per day equal to his Charisma modifier. At level fourteen, this ability can be used at will.
    Since he can become a ghost at will, he already becomes incorporeal as per the ghost template. This seems redundant.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.

    You seem to be under the false impression that the Ghost Boy acquires the Ghost template. It is somewhat understandable, but nowhere is that stated or even implied.
