    I'd go with a mash up of both. Goblinoid used for basic concepts and colloquial speech, Drow for advanced concepts and formal speech in the upper echelons of society, such as it is.

    Huh, the capstone is pretty powerful, a no save daze effect to all those within 30' of them, which only gets better if they have Great Shriek. Pretty awesome, in my book.

    SHRIEKER

    [IMG]Picture URL[/IMG]

    Mistress keeps telling me I'm 'disturbingly capable for one of the lesser races'. I just know I'm gonna haveta kill her now before she has me offed..."

    Shriekers are Vril trained as Battle Mages for their Drow Mistresses. Since their style of magic tends to be loud and unsubtle they aren't really going to be much good as assassins, and the odds are they'll die before their restricted training allows them to become too much of a menace.

    BECOMING A SHRIEKER
    Most Shriekers begin as Sorcerers or Warmages before taking levels in this class.
    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Vril
    Spells: Must be able to cast 2nd level Arcane spells, at least one of which has the Sonic descriptor
    Skills: Concentration 8 ranks, Knowledge (Arcana) 8 ranks, Spellcraft 8 ranks
    Feats: Battle Caster, Dazing Shriek, Sudden Shriek


    Class Skills
    The Shrieker's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Craft (Int), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Arcana, Dungeoneering)(Int), and Spellcraft (Int).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d6

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +0     +0     +2    Extra Shriek, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    2. +1    +0     +0     +3    Shrieking Spell
    3. +1    +1     +1     +3    Sonic Combat Training, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    4. +2    +1     +1     +4    Extra Shriek, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    5. +2    +1     +1     +4    Shrieking Spell
    6. +3    +2     +2     +5    Sonic Combat Training, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    7. +3    +2     +2     +5    Extra Shriek, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    8. +4    +2     +2     +6    Shrieking Spell
    9. +4    +3     +3     +6    Sonic Combat Training, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    10.+5    +3     +3     +7    Death Scream, +1 Level of Arcane Casting Class
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Shrieker gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Extra Shriek (Ex): At levels 1, 4, and 7 you gain one extra daily use of your Shriek ability.

    Shrieking Spell (Su): At level 2 you may 'lose' one of your daily uses of your Shriek ability to modify a spell you are casting that has the Sonic descriptor. At level 2 the you may chose to cast the spell as though it had been cast with one of the following Metamagic Feats: Enlarge Spell, Extend Spell.

    At level 5 you may also use it to cast a spell as though it had been cast with one of the following Metamagic Feats: Empower Spell, Explosive Spell.

    At level 8 you may also use it to cast a spell as though it had been cast with one of the following Metamagic Feats: Maximize Spell, Widen Spell.

    Sonic Combat Training (Su): At third level when preparing spells you may prepare any spell with the Sonic descriptor as a spell one level higher (or if you do not prepare spells you may cast it as a Full Round Action instead of a Standard Action). If your opponent doesn't Save successfully vs. this spell (or if it has no Save) he must make a Fortitude Save (DC is 10 plus half Hit Dice plus Charisma Modifier) or be Dazed 1 round.

    At 6th level if he fails the Save he is Dazed 1d3 rounds.

    At 9th level he no longer casts the spell as a spell 1 level higher (or casts it as a Standard action like any spell if he doesn't prepare spells ahead of time).

    Death Scream (Su): Once per encounter you may unleash the Death Scream: A 60' long cone of Sonic energy doing 1d6 damage per Hit Die you possess (Reflex Save for half damage, Save DC is 10 plus half Hit Dice plus Charisma modifier). Anyone damaged by it must also make a Second Save (Same DC) or be permanently Deafened and Dazed 1d3 rounds.

    PLAYING A SHRIEKER NAME
    Your mother always told you that you had a death wish, and an unholy attraction to elf women. Nothing else could explain your willingness to so obviously become cannon fodder in the service of someone who barely recognizes your existence. You'd explain to her your training will one day come in handy during the revolution, but Mistress may be listening...
    Combat: You're made for combat. Or so your Mistress says. She gets you into fights before you've healed from the last one, uses you as a 'trap shield', barely feeds and equips you, and perversely wants you to be a competent enough killer to defend her yet not pose a threat to her existence. In return for this service you get to hang out with some crazy half naked Drow chick and occasionally learn new killin' spells. Hardly seems fair does it?
    Advancement: Unless and until they can escape, Shriekers advance in whatever direction they're told to unless they can find training on the side away from their Mistress (which isn't likely).
    Resources: Usually you are owned by a Drow who uses you as their own private cannon. So you have whatever resources they wish to give you, unless you've escaped, at which point you're initially dead broke. It ain't easy being a Goblinoid...

    SHRIEKERS IN THE WORLD
    "Do you sometimes get the feeling Teblice stares at me in an unnatural way?
    Shriekers are poor creatures bred for nothing but battle, and who are smart enough to know it. many of them suffer from depression or odd mental quirks due to the stress of their situation, and usually die before they can get help. Once freed however, they are remarkably loyal to whoever is responsible, even if that person is of a Good alignment. You can just see the Lawful Good Paladin being followed by his Chaotic Evil wannabe sidekick. "I can change boss, no seriously..."
    Daily Life: Your days are spent training, avoiding death at the hands fo your fellows, avoiding death at the hands of your Mistress, and avoiding death at the hands of her enemies. On the odd occasion you get to vent your frustration, bad stuff happens.
    Notables: Teblice (CE Male Vril Warmage 6/Shrieker 6) is a budding revolutionary unwilling to admit his secret elf fetish (especially to his mom).
    Organizations: Escaped Shriekers often band together to form anti drow groups, or at least for mutual protection. Otherwise the closest thing they have are the training camps back in the slave warrens. Which may one day be the center of a revolutionary uprising against the hated Drow.
    NPC Reaction
    NPC's tend to be on the business end of your sonic abilities, usually at the order of your Mistress. Which means they hate her, and you aren't exactly popular...

    SHRIEKERS IN THE GAME
    Shriekers are assumed to be (or at one point have been) slaves. This may make some players uncomfortable, so make sure they're okay with it.
    Adaptation: Shriekers tend to be more for serious campaigns given their origins as slaves, but they could do in humorous ones as the sarcastic sidekick/minion.
    Encounters: Shriekers are generally assigned to protect important Drow, or help with raiding parties. So PC's will see them twhen the Drow go to war, or the PC's try to sneak into a dark elf stronghold.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 12: The PC's are spying on a Drow caravan, wondering how best to take it, and looking for an opening. They notice a weird striped goblinoid who always seems to be near the Priestess in charge of it looks to be...enamored of her. Perhaps he likes other Elves as well. Now if only the party can talk the Elven Knight into chatting him up so they can gain some info...

    Any preferences on it using its spells to enhance its Shriek ability or using its Shrieks to enhance its spells?

    Given Shrieks are normally 1/day, you wouldn't get as many uses as you would if you used spell slots, which are generally more prevalent.

    My thoughts so far: just give them immunity ro all disease at level 4. No sense in splitting it up.

    Also: The Save DC for the First Infection ability is too low. At 10th level in this class it would be DC 15 plus stat modifier. Most PC's at that level are gonna make that Save easily.


    I also have the rest of the Shrieker abilities up for review

    TANARRUK ARSONIST

    [IMG]Picture URL[/IMG]

    "Burn a city, and it's people will follow it into the ashes.

    Flamers are Tanarruks who have sold out to their demonic parents, and agreed to further the goals of the Abyss.

    BECOMING A TANARRUK ARSONIST
    Flamers begin as Warlocks, and usually develop a taste for fire...

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Race: Tanarruk
    Eldritch Blast: 3d6
    Invocations: Brimstone Blast, Eldritch Spear
    Skills: Concentration 2 ranks, Intimidate 4 ranks, Knowledge (Arcana, Religion, The Planes) 2 ranks
    Feats: Ability Focus (Eldritch Blast), Potent Eldritch Blast (see below)
    Alignment: Cannot be Good.


    Class Skills
    The Tanarruk Arsonist's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Concentration (Con), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Arcana, Religion, The Planes)(Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), and Use Magic Device (Cha).
    Skills Points at Each Level : 2 + int

    Hit Dice: d6

    Code:
       BAB  Fort    Ref    Will  Abilities
    1. +0    +0     +0     +2    Eldritch Blast, Improved Brimstone Blast
    2. +1    +0     +0     +3    Resistances, Invocation (Least or Lesser)
    3. +2    +1     +1     +3    Immunities
    4. +3    +1     +1     +4    Resistances, Invocation (Least or Lesser)
    5. +3    +1     +1     +4    Immunities
    6. +4    +2     +2     +5    Resitances, Invocation (Least, Lesser, or Greater)
    7. +5    +2     +2     +5    Immunities
    8. +6    +2     +2     +6    Resistances, Invocation (Least, Lesser, or Greater)
    9. +6    +3     +3     +6    Greater Brimstone Blast
    10.+7    +3     +3     +7   Abyssal Blast, Invocation (Least, Lesser, Greater, or Dark)
    Weapon Proficiencies: A Tanarruk Arsonist gains no new weapon or armor proficiencies.

    Eldritch Blast: Your Tanarruk Arsonist and Warlock levels stack for purposes of how powerful your Eldritch Blast is.

    Improved Brimstone Blast: From now one you may choose to make any of your Blasts Brimstone Blasts, and you may apply another Eldritch Essence Invocation to the Eldritch Blast if you want.

    Resistances (Ex): At level 2 the Flamer gains Energy Resistance 5 (Cold). At level 4 it also gains Energy Resistance 5 (Acid). At level 6 it's Resistance to Cold becomes 10. At level 8 it's Resistance to Acid becomes 10.

    Invocations: At each even numbered level the Arsonist learns a new Invocation. It can be from the Warlock or Arsonist Invocation list. Note that once you resume levels in Warlock you may now take an Invocation of any level or type if you gain a Warlock level that grants a new Invocation. Also, if you have at least 5 levels in this PrC, and take more levels in Warlock, you may take Invocations specific to this PrC with any Warlock level in which you learn new Invocations.

    Immunities (Ex): At third level the Arsonist becomes immune to poison. At 5th level he becomes immune to fire. At 7th level he becomes immune to electricity.

    Greater Brimstone Blast (Su): When using your Eldritch Blast as a Brimstone Blast from now on your opponent receives no saving throw and automatically catches fire.

    Abyssal Blast (Su): You gain the Abyssal Blast Invocation.

    PLAYING A TANARRUK ARSONIST
    Some people just want to see the world burn, and you are one of them. Tired of the Orcs who wont accept you because of your tainted blood, and tired of the other humanoids who rightly regard you as a terrible monster, you have reached a point in your life where you'd do anything to just watch them all die screaming. And for a price, the Abyss will give you just that...
    Combat: You are a Blaster devoted to fire. Many consider you a hazard because of this, as fire can get out of hand quickly, but your immunity makes you scoff at these notions. Good think you think friends are replaceable. You'll lose them to the inferno that results from your fights pretty often.
    Advancement: Arsonists tend to be single minded in their devotion to fire and destruction (and to a somewhat lesser extent the schemes of their Demonic masters).
    Resources: As an agent of the Abyss, you can occasionally call upon them for aid IF you are able to produce consistent results. Otherwise your best bets are the local demon worshiping cults and loonies. A mixed bag at best.

    TANARRUK ARSONISTS IN THE WORLD
    "Oh ____."
    You prefer to interact with the world by bringing about it's end. Honestly, you are never happier than making others weep. Death by burning is something you consider only fitting for a world that has rejected you continuously, despite your blatantly deserving such shunning. In short, you are a madman who is used by others to burn down the Churches of opposing Gods or the houses of less divine rivals.
    Daily Life: Most of the time you are left to your own devices unless the Demons have need of you. Unless you're a member of a cult or something (which is likely) in which case you'll have to put up with taking their orders. Until then, it's just burning everything in reach.
    Notables:
    Organizations: Most Arsonists belong to a cult or military of some sort if they belong to an organization. Crazed arsonists are notoriously unreliable, and with your parentage people are willing to believe the worst of you.

    NPC Reaction
    NPC's are generally horrified of you. they can't really help it as you're a sadistic killer who burns villages to the ground.

    TANARRUK ARSONISTS IN THE GAME
    This is a problematic class for DM's since using copious amounts of fire tends to create problems during and after combat, and the locals may not be as happy to see the PC's kill the local monster if they torch the city in the process.
    Adaptation: This is intended mostly for serious campaigns, but crazy people making things go boom is also a staple of the humor genre.
    Encounters: PC's will generally encounter Flamers burning people or other things into ash and laughing maniacally while doing so (especially churches). Sometimes it seems as if it's their goal to burn the entire world, despite the fact that they won't have any food if they succeed.

    Sample Encounter
    EL 15: "Pardon me sir.

    Okay this guy only gets 5 new Invocations for his PrC levels. Do you want 2 or 3 new invocations of each type to choose from?

    Also, in the Fiends book it says 'some' demons are capable of mating and creating half fiends, but isn't specific. Anyone know if it's based on power level or soemthing else? I wanted to tie the Flamers Invocations into it's parentage.

    I have a few potential thoughts edited in as to possible Invocation names. Just need to decide what they do now.

    Although I find this class very cool and interesting, I must sadly confess that my knowledge regarding warlocks is null, as I have never used one in my game - my players said a unified "no, thank you" to both Warlock, truenaming, mysteries and incarnum. Only the binder survived the cut, and still as a PrC (with a VERY low level requirements).

    Nevertheless, I will find a use for this class one way or another

    I've been fiddling around with Orc and Goblin attributes in my homebrewed campaign; should I share my alternative racials for orcs? (Goblins are Fey in my setting, so Orcs are the only one of the two that are still humanoids)

    I'm a fan of the Vril. Brave goblinoids with a sonic attack and DR of your choice.

    Love the Tannaruk Flamer (not the name so much. Perhaps Earthburner or Skyscorcher or something?).

    A Hezrou inspired Nauseating Blast or a Bebilith inspired Rending Blast (that ignores hardness for destroying items) could be neat.

    But my favorite would be some sort of Marilith-inspired Sixfold Blast that isn't available until the Warlock can do at least 6d6 EB damage. The sixfold blast would split into six blasts, which make a single attack roll and compare it to the AC of up to six targets within the the range and line of effect (the Warlock can turn her head as she's aquiring targets and do an Iron Man thing where she just fires off six blasts that arc in all directions, even to hit foes behind her). The blast is *not* split into six 1d6 blasts, because that would be weak. Instead she does 2d6 Eldritch Blast damage to each target, but can't hit any one target with more than two blasts.

    When she gains the ability to cast a 7d6 EB, her Sixfold Blast does 2d6+1 damage for each of the six blasts. When she can perform an 8d6 EB, her Sixfold Blast does 2d6+2 for each of the six blasts. When she gains the ability to perform a 9d6 Eldritch Blast, her Sixfold Blast does 3d6 damage per blast, and when she gains the final 10d6 EB (and regardless if she somehow goes over this number), her Sixfold Blast does 3d6+1 damage per blast.

    Noxious Blast already causes Nausea, but I'll give the other a shot.

    Changing the name to something that's more reminiscent of its demon heritage would probably be better than calling it a Flamer. Something like Tannaruk Heritor or Tannaruk Ascendant or something, since it does much more than just burn people, plus Flamer sounds kinda silly.
