So, to preserve the family name, he volunteered for an experiment to instill sorcerous blood in himself, which backfired. Now a freak of the arcane, he's been practically disowned and serves with the intention of gaining the honor of service by himself, and maybe be allowed back into the family and regular society. Discipline, rigidity, and hierarchy are crutches for him in a society he used to belong to, but now can't really be accepted in.
    What classes did you settle on? In Sultran society, even with great renown and success, it's likely a monstrosity would never achieve that kind of recognition. But I kind of like the idea of struggling to achieve it anyway.

    The sheet so far. Anyone need a bodyguard, who may or may not be a ninja?
    Ignore the martial archetype dips, they're mainly there for class features, those maneuvers are never getting improved. Tiefling was only picked for the extra dex and int, so if it doesn't fit (and its looking out of place) I can always switch over to Human or Half-elf.

    EDIT: Yikes. Average it is.
    Interesting. What archetypes are in use? Where's the Voyager from?

    You tell me how you learned it, from what nation, and the intent. Maybe invent an association or guru to go with it?

    Ankou's Shadow Slayer//Aurora Soul Mystic is what I was thinking. The way I saw it is that the mirror image shadow isn't really intention but rather magic twisting its way out of him, and the elemental powers being pulsating ebbs and flows of the arcane through him. I've considered giving it a scientific bent, like maybe describing it as a perversion of a natural "breathing" in and out of magic that all life normally does, but that's really depending on how magic works in this setting.

    Also, yeah, I imagined that he's not really viewed as a soldier but more a very useful weapon, which is not how he thinks he's being viewed. In his head, he's just gotta rise up the ranks, be the hero of the motherland enough to actually be seen as one, but that's not how it is at all.

    Warder is using Dervish Defender and Sworn Protector.
    Unchained Rogue is using Hidden Blade for Stealth Gambit and the other class abilities partially for flavor.
    Monk is using Monk of the Silver Fist for Gauntlet Strike, Shielding Fist, and the bonus feat (buckler bash). Mainly the bonus feat and not needing to use a buckler. I swear I'm not doing it to rocket punch people. Only taking the one level of each.

    Voyager is a Dreamscarred Press Psionics base class, thats unfortunately NOT on the SRD.

    You can only have Martial discipline POW stuff on one side of the build.

    Everyone is working for the Sultran, but your origins can be from anywhere.

    Alright, then I think I will go with Sultran as well. I think a bit o patriotism works nicely.

    Fierarms are a cruel mistress. Many killed by a misfire of their own gun, rather than an enemy blade. However, those able to master a complex machine and violent alchemical, are rewarded with a powerful weapon. Combined with a bit of stealth and patience, this can take assassination to a whole new level. An even when all else fail, a gunslinger can fall back on their prowess with a gun.

    If it's the former, I'm imagining my dude being a grifter and gambler who stole the place of the hero that was originally meant to be there, in order to get out of the country to escape his many debts.

    Hi all, so I was thinking about how I would approach this and I had what I think is a pretty interesting idea. Before going forward with it let me know what you guys think.

    A Soulknife (moonlight meditant) // Shifter (warshifter, martial shifter). Assuming it is okay to combine martial shifter and warshifter, because warshifter replaces quick transformation and martial shifter delays it a level.

    For race I would like to play a Kitsune, some notes on racial traits I am thinking of taking (human guise, magical tails, fox shape) would it be okay though if I base my normal form as a human instead of a kitsune more normal form?

    What do you guys think?

    Well by RAW your mix of martial and war shifter are a no go since they are changing the same feature. As for the Jedi werewolf, fun concept.

    Yeah, it came up in clarification in the thread. I have no control over the original OP 16, and have since moved some of it to Discord. No worries.

    The former. A kind of special forces Black Ops unit. But the interest is enough right now for me to spawn a second game in the same setting, potentially from another nation. Stay tuned.

    I'm not a fan of how PF did archetypes, and I'd have to check them both out before I allow things to stack that normally don't.

    What do you mean by 'as a human instead of a kitsune more normal form'? Like, you appear human until you change, not being identifiable as a kitsune? That's either a custom alternate racial trait or a feat, I'm afraid. Stigma is very prevalent in this world, depending on where you are from.

    You could just spend all your time in your alternate form. Its at will, and indefinite duration.

    Drat, would have saved me at least 7 skill points at this level.

    On rereading and rechecking I saw that I was on error. At first I thought the only overlap was the quick transformation, that the martial shifter delays (as opposed to replace). But there is also a bestial trait, so I guess no way jose to the martial warshifter (I am taking war shifter then).

    As to the custom alternate racial trait, or a feat... I already have transformation (human) gained as a racial trait. So there probably is no need to take it further. Perhaps I could use naturalized to just not bother making disguise checks.

    As far as Luivika is concerned, 10. She doesn't like demons and we'll be fighting them.

    Seems to me the DM is molding stuff like this around our stories.

    True, but the question surrounding their inclusion isn't so much a question of power, but rather that it allows PCs to add more flavor to their characters without having to sacrifice general usability, since the 2 extra skill points can only be spent in skills that have either no or very limited use in conflict resolution.
