Book 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.
