[Pathfinder] The Wings of Combat

April 29, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced WyvaransAll week long we are sharing with you some of our favorite parts of the Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans for Pathfinder. Previously we shared their racial stats and two archetypes. Today, we are posting a few of the combat feats a wyvaran can take that are exclusive to the race. These feats reveal a different fighting style than most races, emblematic of their draconic heritage. I hope you enjoy them as much as we do.

Deadly Diver (Combat)
When you dive, you usually connect, one way or the other.
Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1, wyvaran
Benefit: When you perform a charge while flying and you miss on your attack, you may make another attack roll. If the attack is successful you deal 1d4 + your Strength bonus of bludgeoning damage to the target as you bodily connect with your target. This attack does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

Gnome Hunter (Combat)
You have taken on a small measure of the racial enmity that kobolds feel.
Prerequisite: Wyvaran
Benefit: You gain a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls and a +2 racial bonus on damage rolls against gnomes.

Telling Tail (Combat)
You are more adept at using your tail in combat.
Prerequisite: Wyvaran
Benefit: You may use your slapping tail as a primary natural attack.
Normal: You may only use your slapping tail to make attacks of opportunity.

Wing Bash (Combat)
Your strong wings support you in combat.
Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1, wyvaran
Benefit: You can make bashing attacks with each of your wings. This is a secondary natural attack that deals 1d4 bludgeoning damage.

[Pathfinder] The Wyvaran Race

April 27, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced WyvaransBook of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans comes out tomorrow, but if you are a Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Series subscriber, you got access to the new release last night. This being, what is essentially, a new race, we really hope you enjoy the different feel of this race in your game.

Last week we posted two archetypes, but this being a race only found in Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Bestiary 4 and in the back of the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game: Advanced Race Guide as an example of what you can do with the race builder rules, I feel we should give the racial traits so you can play this race right away. So that is today’s preview, along with a few of the alternate racial traits.

Wyvaran Racial Traits
Wyvaran have the following racial traits.
+2 Dexterity, –2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom: Wyvarans have a reptilian grace and a strong will, but they tend to be a little dimwitted.
Normal Speed: Wyvarans have a base speed of 30 feet.
Flight: Wyvarans have dragon-like wings that grant them a fly speed of 30 feet with clumsy maneuverability.
Slapping Tail (Ex): Wyvarans have a tail attack they can only use when making attacks of opportunity. This slapping tail attack deals 1d8 points of damage plus the wyvaran’s Strength modifier.
Darkvision 60 ft.: Wyvarans can see in the dark up to 60 feet.
Low-Light Vision: Wyvarans have low-light vision.
Languages: Wyvarans speak Common and Draconic. A wyvaran with a high Intelligence score can choose from the following: Dwarven, Elven, Gnome, Goblin, and Orc.

Alternate Racial Traits
Goldhunter: Wyvarans with this racial trait can smell the sweet taste of treasure in the air. They have the scent ability. This racial trait replaces the darkvision and lowlight vision traits.
Kobold Kin: Some wyvarans favor their kobold heritage. They qualify for any feat that has the kobold prerequisite. These wyvarans gain a +2 racial bonus on Craft (trapmaking), Perception, and Profession (miner) checks. Craft (traps) and Stealth are always class skills for these wyvarans. Wyvarans with this alternate racial trait can be any color of dragon, not just blue. This racial trait replaces low-light vision.
Stormchild: Wyvarans with this ability can trace their bloodline back to blessed Dohinin. They gain fast healing 2 for 1 round anytime they take electricity damage. Wyvarans can heal up to 2 hit points per level per day with this ability, after which it ceases to function. This replaces the slapping tail trait.

Pathfinder: New Wyvaran Archetypes

April 23, 2015 Leave a comment

Book of Heroic Races: Advanced WyvaransWe are currently finishing up Book of Heroic Races: Advanced Wyvarans. While you are waiting for the most detail this race has ever been given, you can enjoy these two class archetypes.

Regulator
There are checks and balances in every society. When wyvaran society experiences a system shock, like a crime against property rights or the taking of wyvaran life, then the regulators are called in. They re-balance the scales of justice and deliver a reckoning to the offending party.
Associated Class: ranger
Associated Race: wyvaran
Associated Alignment: any lawful.
Replaced Abilities: Wild empathy, hunter’s bond, favored enemy (all but 1st level).
Modified Abilities: Class skills, favored enemy (1st level only)
Class Skills: A regulator gains Sense Motive as a class skill in addition to the other class skills.
Sound Judgment (Ex): At 1st level, a wandering judge gains a +2 bonus on Sense Motive checks.
Favored Enemy (Ex): At 1st level, a regulator must select dragon as his favored enemy.
Blessed by Law (Su): At 4th level, a regulator lives and breathes law. In return he receives access to the warpriest blessing of Law and gains the minor blessing. A regulator uses his ranger level – 3 as his warpriest level to determine the effect of the blessing. At 13th level, a regulator gains the major blessing from the Law blessing.
Loyal to the Law (Ex): At 4th level, a regulator gains a teamwork feat as a bonus feat. He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. Twice per day, as a standard action, the regulator may grant this feat to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear him. Allies retain the use of this bonus feat for 3 rounds plus 1 round for every 2 levels the regulator possesses. Allies do not need to meet the prerequisites of this bonus feat. Chaotic creatures do not gain the benefit of this teamwork feat, even if the regulator considers them allies.
Reckoning (Su): At 5th level, a regulator gains the ability to pronounce judgment, as the inquisitor class feature, but his inquisitor level is considered to be his ranger level – 4. At 13th level, whenever a regulator uses his judgment ability, he selects two different judgments, instead of one. This only consumes one use of his judgment ability. As a swift action, a regulator can change one of these judgments to another type.

Skylord
Since Dohinin first took to the sky, wyvarans have tried to master it. Those that travel the path of the skylord become one with the wind, which allows them to perform deadly charges that pummels their foes.
Associated Class: monk
Associated Race: wyvaran
Replaced Abilities: Fast movement, slow fall
One with the Wind (Ex): Starting at 3rd level a skylord begins to master the sky. As long as a skylord is not wearing armor or carrying a medium or heavy load his maneuverability class improves by one step at 3rd, 6th, 12th and 15th level. At 9th level, a skylord can recover from any failed Fly check or collision after 10 feet of falling, hovering in place until the start of his next turn. At 18th level, a skylord can fly upwards at any angle.
Kinetic Strike (Ex): Starting at 4th level, whenever a skylord flies his full fly speed as part of a charge and succeeds on his attack, he deals an extra 1d6 points of bludgeoning damage. This damage increases by 1d6 for every 2 levels above 4th he possesses, to a maximum of 9d6 at 20th level.
