" Do the impossible, see the invisible
Row, row, fight the power!
Touch the untouchable, break the unbreakable
Row, row, fight the power!"


~~~~~~~~~~


This contest begins with the posting of this thread and continues through until the 30th of September.

A poll will be opened shortly after the closing of the contest and everyone on the Playground will have the chance to vote until the 17th of October. You will be casting five votes, one for what you believe deserves first, second and third places, one for the entry you believe would most likely see play (either in a game you would DM/GM or in a game you yourself would play in) and one for the entry you believe was the most unique entry for the competition. [All three types of votes may be for the same entry.]

All winners will receive a pixelated trophy that I create myself with my slightly less limited skill with Power Point. In the case of any ties I will cast the tie breaking vote.


Rules

1. You will be creating an original Archetype or Base Class or Monster or Prestige Class or Race or Template that is themed around the concept of the "Rule of Cool". Your entry doesn't have to make sense, it doesn't have to be in line with the feel and vibe of the Pathfinder rule set and it doesn't even need to follow the normal rules. Your entry just needs to run on unleaded Coolness, be it your own opinion or that of others. Stay thirsty my friends.

2. Your entry must be entirely complete. Incomplete contest entries will be disqualified upon the closing deadline of the contest.

2a. Archetypes, Base and Prestige classes must have a name, completed class, and fluff for both combat and roleplaying purposes.
2b. Monsters must have a name, completed stat-block, physical description, and ecology if any. Templates may be submitted as entries but will be judged based upon the example creature (which must be a previously statted NPC creature from the PSRD). A pre-application and post-application version of the creature must be included for comparison (a link to the NPC on the PSRD will suffice for pre-application).
2c. Races must have a name, completed racial traits and fluff for both combat and roleplaying purposes.

3. Entries must be Pathfinder, using the formats provided below. Using the provided formats is not a strict requirement but it makes reading and judging easier and may impact your chances in the contest if you deviate from it. You may "gussy up" your entries as you see fit as long as they are still comprehensible.

4. Post all entries for the contest in this thread. Do not post any conversations regarding the entries here. Any and all discussions regarding this contest will take place on a separate thread: [thread=293472]Here[/url]

5. Only one entry is allowed per participant.

6. Entries submitted must be original works that were created for this contest and this contest alone. Submitting plagiarized or previously posted work will result in said entry being automatically disqualified and may lead to inability to compete in this contest from then on.

6a. Entries submitted to this contest may not be posted in a separate thread or format until the contest has come to a close. Any entries that are discovered to have been posted elsewhere during the contest's duration (such as to garner further attention and critiques) will be automatically disqualified.

7. You may not reserve a post for an entry you plan to submit. You are more than allowed to tweak and edit your entry after it has been submitted (up until the deadline is reached) but the basic layout of your entry must be complete.

8. Please state whether or not you would like comments or critiques on your entry upon its submission. Otherwise other contestants and Playgrounders watching the contest will most likely give your submission a once over and point out any flaws or other comments they may have seen in the chat thread.

BAD DUDE

President Ronnie has been kidnapped by ninjas. Are you a bad enough dude to rescue the President?

Bad Dudes are the raddest S.O.B.s you can think of. See that guy who's juggling chainsaws? That chick who just beat a ninja to death with its own flayed skin? Those kids that ate a shark? They might have what it takes to be Bad Dudes. If you see a crack in the moon, it was a Bad Dude. If you hear a motorbike engine rev on your roof while you're in bed asleep, and walk outside to find a 450-pound ball of muscle giving a dragon a noogie, that's a Bad Dude. Bad Dudes are unstoppable forces of nature with an infinite reserve of grit, testosterone and fury. If you meet a Bad Dude, you'd best kneel in deference, for their glare is enough to kill mortal men.

Disclaimer:
Bad dudes are an epic-level prestige class, designed for characters that have already reached level 20. It is not recommended in realistic or "gritty" campaigns. Staring at Bad Dudes for an extended period without protection can cause: nausea, vomiting, schizophrenia, Mad Seer Disorder, iron corneas, "Fish in Brain" disease, Rumspringa, explosive diarrhea, implosive diarrhea, and fire retardance. Please use this class with caution. Bad Dudes L.L.C. is not legally or morally responsible for any consequences of misuse of this product. Do not combine with Spiral Energy, Hot-Bloodedness, the Heart of the Cards, the God Hand, any years between (but not including) 1979 and 1990, or aspirin.

Role: Bad Dudes don't need a party. The only time a Bad Dude will work with non-Dudes is if they can match their power. Bad Dudes don't need to cast spells, because they can unleash more power with their bare hands.

Alignment: Bad Dudes can be any alignment. All that is required is a lion's spirit and the wrath of a god in mortal form.

Hit Die: d12

Requirements
To qualify to become Bad Dude, a character must fulfill all of the following criteria.
Skills: Intimidate 20, Climb 15, Acrobatics 18
Base Attack Bonus: +20
Special: Must have single-handedly saved the world through sheer badassery.

Class Skills
The Bad Dude's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Acrobatics (Dex), Bluff (Cha), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Escape Artist (Dex), Fly (Dex), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge[Dungeoneering, Geography, History, Local, and Religion] (Int), Perception, Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Sense Motive (Wis), Survival (Wis), and Swim (Str)

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Bad Dude.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Bad Dudes train in the infinite martial arts, both armed and unarmed. You gain proficiency in all weapons that currently exist.

Unarmed Strike: You gain the Improved Unarmed Strike feat as a bonus feat, and deal unarmed damage as a 10th-level Monk of your size. Your levels in this class stack with levels in other classes with Unarmed Strike for determining damage.

Badness: Bad Dudes achieve a state of incredible calm, even in a state of absolute fury. You can enter a Rage as a 10th-level Barbarian or continue to advance your Barbarian rage as if you had gained a level in Barbarian, and gain a ki pool as a 10th-level Monk, or continue to advance your ki pool and ki abilities as if you had gained a level in a ki using class. In addition to your normal ki powers and Rage powers, you can perform the following feats while in a rage or not in a rage:

By spending 3 ki points, you can grant yourself a Rad bonus to all saves equal to the higher of your Wisdom or Charisma bonus as an immediate action.
By spending 5 ki points, you may reroll a single d20 roll. This is not an action, but you must do it after rolling, but before you know whether or not your roll was successful.
You can perform any of the basic ki powers described under the Monk's ki pool class feature.
By spending 10 ki points as an immediate action, you can completely ignore any detrimental effect currently affecting you, including death or unconsciousness. You ignore the effect for the lesser of 1 round per your HD or until the effect wears off. You may also use this ability in response to the activation of such an effect against you. This completely negates the effect, and if the effect was one that would effect multiple targets, you may choose to protect any and all other targets of your choosing.
You can convert ki points into extra rounds of Rage or expend rage rounds for extra ki points on a 1:1 basis. These extra ki points or rage rounds last for 24 hours or until expended.


Secret of Radness (Ex): At level 2, you continue to become increasingly rad, finding trivial what others call impossible. Select a single extraordinary class feature from another class, which you do not already possess (e.g., you may not select a Barbarian's Rage, as it is replicated by Badness, above). You may now use that class feature as if you possessed the lesser of 10 levels or maximum levels in the class that granted it. For example, you could choose an Arcane Trickster's Impromptu Sneak attack, and would be able to use it twice per day, like a 10th-level Arcane Trickster would. You do not gain the benefits of the chosen class feature unless you could use it (in the above example, you would gain no benefits without already having a Sneak Attack ability). At level 4, you may select another such feature.

Art of the Bran-Dao (Ex, Sp, or Ps): You can almost radiate coolness, being able to master strange martial arts or mystical powers with ease. At level 3, you can choose to gain one of the following benefits.

You gain three spells from each level from the Magus or Inquisitor spell list, which you can use once per day each as spell-like abilities.
You gain three powers from each level from the Psychic Warrior power list, which you can use once per day each as Psi-like abilities.
You learn three Rogue Talents
You gain a Soulknife's Mind Blade, three Blade Skills, and Enhanced Mind Blade +5
You gain three Rage Powers
You gain a Paladin's Lay on Hands as a Paladin of twice your class level, and can use all mercies available to a Paladin of twice your class level.


Bonus Feat: At levels 1 & 5, you gain a bonus feat, which can be any feat whose prerequisites you meet.

Guile's Theme (Ex): It goes with everything. At level 5, once per day, you may add a +40 Rad bonus to any d20 roll you make. While you do so, Guile's theme (http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Iof5pRAIZmw) blares in the background. Any time where you would be unable to hear it, this ability does not function.

Awesome Incarnate (Su): You are the Apotheosis of Awesome. At level 5, you can never die as a direct result of one of your own rolls, or rolls made on your behalf. For example, you automatically succeed any saves vs. death, provided you would be able to succeed it normally. If you would not be able to succeed a check like the one given above normally, then you would still fail it.

Resolute Warrior

Put an image of your class here!

"Here I stand resolved! Resolved to never let anything stand in my way! Resolved to overcome any obstacle, even myself and become better for it! For I am the Resolute Warrior, I will not move, I will not waver. So take your best shot, you'll only get the one."

Author's Note
This class spits in the face that mundane classes can't be awesome or that extraordinary abilities have to constrain themselves to anything resembling reality once level 5 is gained. I'm trying out a new mechanic here that is still being ironed out, but my hope is that it will be able go beyond the impossible and kick reason to the curb. I'm mainly trying out different things and seeing what sticks, even if they don't jive with what is normally allowed or accepted within the rules.

Many know that magic can change the world; in fact it is the plight of many common men that magicians cannot be stopped by mere force. Many use this as a crutch, believing that a mere man can only do so much without magic. However, there are some who realize that even the mightiest spell caster must follow the rules and codes of magic, whether it be arcane or divine in source. These men ignore the rules of reality, common sense and logic and laugh in the face of the impossible. They are not powered by the supernatural, they simply beat up what is 'impossible' until it becomes possible

These are the Resolute Warriors, relying not on magic that will eventually run out, but they set themselves up against all obstacles, realizing that the only true obstacle that they have to overcome is themselves. So their resolve only grows by each challenge they face, and even when that resolve dwindles, it is only the next obstacle to overcome and become better by.


Role: Resolute Warriors are fighters first and foremost. Unlike their constrained counterparts, however, the Resolute Warrior faces no challenge that he can't beat through sheer personality and gusto. And unlike spellcasters, whose power begins each day full and slowly diminishes as it is used up; the Resolute Warrior's power only grows as they are faced with greater and greater challenges. They can be of use in any encounter, but prefer any situation that they can beat up or overpower(note: that's every situation).

Alignment: Resolute Warriors have a slight tendency to be chaotic, because of their belief in beating any restraints. They also are often good aligned, seeking to better themselves and help those who are still kept from reaching their potential. However, they can be of any alignment. Lawful Resolute Warriors tend to focus on promises and commitments they make; especially the commitment to becoming better or towards some goal, whether it is noble or sinister. The common trait in all Resolute Warriors is the determination to stand against anything that gets in the way and to never back down.

Boomzerker


Modified Class: Barbarian

Normal barbarians can be pretty destructive. Boomzerkers are nothing but.

CLASS FEATURES:
{table]level|class feature
1|Explosive Rage, Explosion Damage 1d6
2|DR 1/-
3|Explosion Damage 2d6
4|Rage Power
5|Blast, Explosion Damage 3d6
6|DR 2/-

16|Rage Power
17|Explosion Damage 9d6
18|DR 5/-
19|Explosion Damage 10d6
20|Rage Power
[/table]
Explosive Rage (Ex): Explosive rage replaces the barbarian’s normal rage. It counts as rage for the purposes of feats and prestige classes, and confers the same bonuses and penalties. While in an explosive rage, the Boomzerker adds extra damage to his unarmed attacks, called “explosion damage.” Explosion damage is treated as both fire and bludgeoning damage for the purposes of resistances, damage reduction, vulnerabilities, and immunities, whichever is least beneficial to the target. Explosion damage is halved underwater. At first level, the Boomzerker’s explosion damage is 1d6, and it increases by 1d6 at every odd level. The explosion damage also damages all creatures in a five foot splash zone around the target, with a reflex save for half damage of 10 + half the Boomzerker’s level + his strength modifier (struck targets always take full damage). The Boomzerker himself is also dealt half the explosion damage, and cannot avoid it even if his reach is greater than five feet. The Boomzerker does not have the option to make normal unarmed strikes during his Explosive Rage, but armed attacks do not cause explosion damage.

Damage Reduction: The Boomzerker’s constant exposure to damage toughens him even faster than normal barbarians. He gains DR 1/- at second level, increasing it by 1 at levels 6, 10 14, and 18. The Boomzerker’s DR is doubled versus bludgeoning damage and explosion damage.

Rage Powers: The total focus on exploding things with his fists means that the Boomzerker does not gain as many rage powers as normal barbarians. He gains a rage power at levels 4, 8, 12, 16, and 20.

Blast (Ex): At fifth level, the Boomzerker can, as a full round action, punch the ground and damage all opponents within ten feet of him, dealing only his exploding damage, with the usual reflex save for half damage. The ground does not need to be particularly solid, but he needs to be able to stand on it, not swimming, flying, or climbing. If he has the Ground Breaker rage power, the blast attack can activates whenever he uses it, unless he's armed.

Charging Burst (Ex): At eleventh level, if the Boomzerker charges, his explosion damage affects all creatures within ten feet of his target. He may also choose to attack a square instead of a creature.

The Boomzerker does not gain Fast Movement, Uncanny Dodge, Improved Uncanny Dodge, Trap Sense, Indomitable Will, Greater Rage, Tireless Rage, or Mighty Rage.

New Rage Powers

Fling
Prerequisites: Wider Blast

Benefits: Creatures who fail their reflex saves against your explosion damage are pushed away from you, stopping outside the damage radius. If they encounter an occupied square or solid structure, both them and the object struck take 1d6 bludgeoning damage. You do not have to apply this effect if you don’t want to.

Scenery Chewer
Prerequisites: Explosive Rage, Ground Breaker

Benefits: Your explosion damage is doubled against inanimate objects, including the ground when using your ground breaker power.


Firebomb
Prerequisites: Explosive Rage, Boomzerker level 20

Benefits: Creatures who fail their reflex saves against your explosion damage are set on fire and take 5d6 fire damage on the following round. You do not have to apply this effect if you don’t want to.

Wider Blast
Prerequisites: Explosive Rage

Benefits: The radius of your explosion damage is increased by 5 feet, including the radiuses of the Blast and Charging Burst abilities.

Special: You may select this power more than once. Its effects stack.

Potent Blast
Prerequisites: Explosive Rage

Benefits: The DC of the reflex save to take half damage from your explosion damage goes up by +2.

Shell-shocked
Prerequisite: Explosive Rage, Boomzerker level 12

Benefits: Your treat all bludgeoning and explosion damage as non-lethal.

Rocket Jump
Prerequisites: Explosive Rage, Wider Blast

Benefits: You can automatically add a number of feet to any jump check equal to your explosion damage’s blast radius by taking 1d6 explosion damage.

Liberal Arts Major

Put an image of your class here!

But you know what I've learned in my seven years here at Coolidge... Timmy? I've learned that you can't treat every situation as a life-and-death matter because you'll die a lot of times. Write that down.

The Liberal Arts Major is the epitome of legitimacy and indecisiveness. They dabble in many fields, while never committing to a focus on just one study.


Role: The options for the Liberal Arts Majors are as unique as the minors they take. Some can take support and face roles with a study of various mental-based courses, whereas others can be more martially focused via an array of sports scholarships. Then, there are those whose indecisiveness has left them with an education so varied that there is no job for them to fill. However, there exists a few whose expert educational planning puts them in a position where investing more money into education allows them more tricks up their sleeves than their contemporaries expected them to ever have.

Alignment: Anyone can become a Liberal Arts Major. Because Liberal Arts Majors know that their continued education relies on living by the rules of their educational institution, those who eventually see graduation tend to be either nonchaotic or nonevil.

Hit Die: d8

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Liberal Arts Major.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Liberal Arts Major is proficient with all simple weapons. She is proficient with light armor and bucklers.

General Education Program (Ex): At 1st level, a Liberal Arts Major is considered a freshman and gains a student level (StL) equal to her class level. For every five student levels above 1st, she is granted a higher student classification as listed on the table. If a Liberal Arts Major takes a level in any nonstudent class, she is no longer considered an enrolled student.

In addition, a Liberal Arts Major has to meet certain educational requirements in order to advance in the class. In order to graduate, she must audit at least one course from each of the following categories: Math, Science, Humanities, Extracurricular. If the Liberal Arts Major has not audited a course from at least one category per four student levels, minimum 1, she cannot gain another level in Liberal Arts Major, unless the level gained will allow her to meet that requirement.

Audit Course: At 1st level, and every two levels thereafter, a Liberal Arts Major may select any course for which she meets the prerequisites. Unless specified, each course is considered an Extraordinary ability.

Indecisive Student (Ex): You may choose which two saves have good save progression. Gain a permanent +1 bonus to any two ability scores.

Financial Aid (Ex): At 1st class level, and every character level thereafter, you may take out a loan to cover the tuition cost of any courses audited that level or supplies for those courses. The maximum amount that can be taken out at 1st character level is 1,000 gp. For each character level increase afterwards, the maximum amount is equal to your student level squared multiplied by 500 gp, or (StL^2) x 500 gp. This loan has a 5% interest rate that compounds each character level increase before any payment is calculated or made. It does not have to be repaid until one character level after you cease being an enrolled student. At that point, your loan is split into five payments where your minimum payment due each level thereafter is equal to the total loan balance divided by the remaining payments, rounded down. To put it simply, the first minimum payment is 1/5 of the loan balance, the second is 1/4, and so on, with the fifth payment being the total remaining balance. If you become an enrolled student again afterwards, repayment stops and interest continues to accrue. If a payment cannot be made, your loan is considered to be in default. While in default, your interest rate increases to 10% until you make two consecutive minimum payments. You will also be hunted relentlessly by debt collectors who will recover the delinquent payments by any means necessary.* An enrolled student may make payments at each character level increase after interest is accrued without penalty.
*DM discretion as to whether the character should live or die. Many an adventure start by repaying a debt. DM does not have to use these financial aid rules and may use a different mechanic if desired, adjusting tuition costs to compensate as needed.

Bonus Feat: At 1st level, 2nd level, and every four levels thereafter, you may select a bonus feat for which you meet the prerequisites.

Declare Minor: At 4th level, and every four levels thereafter, you may select a single minor for which you meet the prerequisites. Unless specified, each Minor is an Extraordinary ability.

Graduation (Ex): At 20th level, you have reached the end of your undergraduate studies. You gain a permanent +4 bonus to your ability scores, split any way you choose among up to four ability scores. You may select any minors that you qualify for instead of the normal single choice. You are no longer considered an enrolled student.


Archetypes

Pretentious Scholar

Hit Die: d6
Base Attack Bonus: As wizard
Academic Scholarship (Ex): You are considered an honors student for the purpose of qualifying for courses. Gain +2 to any one mental ability score. Gain Merit Scholarship (Freshman) as a bonus course. Reflex and Will become good saves.

This replaces the Indecisive Student class feature and the bonus feat gained at 1st level

Jock Recruit

Hit Die: d10
Base Attack Bonus: As fighter
Athletic Scholarship (Ex): You are considered a student athlete for the purpose of qualifying for courses. Gain +2 to any one physical ability score. Gain Sports Scholarship (Freshman) as a bonus course. Fortitude and Reflex now become good saves.

This replaces the Indecisive Student class feature and the bonus feat gained at 1st level


New Feats

Change Major [General]
Requires: Financial Aid, Audit Course, student level 1st, must have taken a level in a nonstudent class since last student class level before or when taking this feat
Benefit: You may count half of the levels from the class used to qualify for this feat as student levels for the purpose of determining the effects based on your student level, except determining emulated class levels. Any class features that are gained from both classes, such as sneak attack or spellcasting, stack with each other in terms of progression, adding the appropriate amount of emulated class levels to the real class levels to determine the effects. All of the effective levels granted by this feat have a maximum level equal to your Hit Die. You are still considered to be an enrolled student and may take further levels in the nonstudent class. Once you reach student level 20th, you gain the Graduation class feature as if you were a 20th level Liberal Arts Major.
Special: You may take this feat multiple times, each time applying the effects to another nonstudent class.

Extra Audit [General]
Requires: Audit Course, student level 3rd, must be an enrolled student
Benefit: You may select a course for which you meet the prerequisites.
Special: You may select this feat once for every three student levels you possess, up to five times total.

Graduate Studies [General]
Requires: Graduation, character level 21st, Change Major or one level each in at least two classes that grant student levels
Benefit: You are once again considered an enrolled student. At every four student level increases above 20th, you may select an additional minor for which you meet the prerequisites.

Requires: General Education Plan (sophomore), Sports Scholarship (Redshirt), audited at least two courses with an Honors Student bonus.
Benefit: You may count as an Honors Student for a number of courses equal to half of your student level, rounded down. You may immediately gain the Honors Student bonuses for any courses used to qualify for this feat.

Since I ended up needing the second post, I'm grabbing a third just in case.

gr8artist
2013-09-13, 04:35 AM
So, since we don't have to stick to the normal rules, I'm writing a template for intelligent magical items. Pretty much the same, except some terminology has to be changed.


Talisman of Terror

Cold water drips slowly from the ceiling as the small band of adventurers creep slowly down the cavern halls. Gerki, the rogue, spots a bit of treasure up ahead, and announces it to his comrades eagerly. Fiona and Zot examine the find carefully, studying the desiccated corpse and the faintly glowing items that adorn it.
Fiona slaps Gerki's hand away from a particularly brilliant bauble, whispering a cautionary warning as she awaits approval from Zot.
The old wizard's eyes churn with arcane mist as he examines the items with scrutiny. His lips curl into a frown, and he shakes his head slowly.
Gerki, moping, turns away from the forbidden treasure at the prompting of the warrior behind him, and the three continue into the dark recesses of the underworld.
Behind them, clinging to the decaying flesh of their former master, a half-dozen talismans of varying shapes and sizes mutter angrily about their terrible fortune and the ill tides of fate. Meanwhile, chuckling silently to himself, the smallest talisman hides in the rogue's coat pocket, eagerly planning the mutiny and murder of three wandering adventurers.

Creating a Talisman of Terror

"Talisman of Terror" is an inherited template that can be added to any intelligent magical item (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items/intelligent-items). A talisman of terror uses the base item's stats and abilities except as noted here.

CR: A talisman of terror has a CR equal to its Ego modifier +3.

AL: Always evil, though talismans of terror are eager to be used, and may choose to not inflict a negative level on characters of opposing alignments who wield them. Furthermore, a talisman's abilities protect it from any attempt to discern its alignment.

Size and Type: Like other intelligent items, a talisman of terror is considered a construct (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/rules-for-monsters/creature-types#TOC-Construct). Its size remains unchanged.

Senses: Low light vision, darkvision 60 ft., constant detect magic

Armor Class: A talisman of terror gains a natural armor bonus equal to its hit dice, in addition to any AC bonuses which the base item provides to its wielder.

Hit Dice: A talisman of terror gains a number of construct hit dice (d10) equal to its ego modifier. A talisman larger than 'tiny' gains bonus HP as normal for a construct (+10 small, +20 medium, +30 large, etc). If its ego modifier increases, it gains additional hit dice as well.

Defensive Abilities: Construct (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/bestiary/rules-for-monsters/creature-types#TOC-Construct) traits. Furthermore, talismans of terror are immune to any attempt to discern their actual alignment, and always appear neutral.

Weaknesses: None

Speed: Most talismans cannot move unless through the effect of an intelligent item ability.

Attacks: A talisman of terror gains a BAB equal to its hit dice, though usually only talismans which possess the ability to move may make attacks. Weapon-shaped talismans gain an attack as though they were wielded, while other types of talismans gain a slam attack appropriate for a creature of their size. Talismans with an intelligence of 16 or higher may gain special attacks based on their design, such as amulets with the ability to strangle, or gloves which can disarm. These are considered natural attacks for the talisman.

Damage: While most talismans cannot attack or move, talismans which can attack may add their charisma modifier to their damage rolls and CMB instead of their strength or dex modifiers.

Space and Reach: No change, though most talismans cannot attack or move. Weapon-shaped talismans sized for creatures bigger than large size gain reach equal to the standard reach for humanoids of that size.

Special Attacks: Rare. Specific special attack varies, as appropriate to the talisman.

Special Qualities
Unforged: Each talisman of terror can be destroyed through a single process unique to that talisman itself, or to its parent talisman. This process should involve time and resources at least equal to the cost of crafting the talisman. When subjected to this particular process, the talisman and each of its offspring are completely destroyed, with no chance to resist or save. Offspring talismans may have their own individual methods of destruction, but are still subjected to annihilation if their parent talisman is unforged.
Telepathy: Each talisman of terror gains the telepathy quality of intelligent items (http://www.d20pfsrd.com/magic-items/intelligent-items), but may also communicate with any intelligent items within 30 feet.
Corrupt Thoughts: A talisman of terror can project the evil, corrupt thoughts of itself and its past wielders out to a distance of 30 feet. These thoughts are utterly unrecognizable to non-items, but they can slowly infuse magical items with a sadistic hatred. Each day, the talisman projects a number of "corruption points" equal to its ego modifier that it may distribute between any magical items within range. When the number of corruption points on an item equal or exceed that item's hit points, that item must begin making will saves (DC 10 + 1/2 talisman's Ego score + talisman's Cha modifier) every day in which it receives at least one corruption point or it becomes a talisman of terror itself. Items which succeed at their save gain no additional benefits or abilities. Any item failing its save immediately gains the talisman of terror template, and is forever considered the offspring of the talisman which corrupted it. If the parent talisman is destroyed through the Unforged process, then its offspring talismans are also unforged. Offspring will usually have their own methods of being unforged, though doing so does not destroy the parent talisman.
Soulforging: Talismans of terror feed off of the tortured and tormented souls of those that wore them. When a creature wielding or wearing a talisman of terror dies, every talisman in his equipment immediately gains extra magical abilities worth up to 200 gold pieces x that creature's hit dice. Alternatively, a talisman may not gain these abilities immediately, but may save them up for stronger abilities after more souls are consumed. These abilities may be pulled from the intelligent item powers list, from the effects of cursed items, or from the rules for crafting wondrous items.
Moment of Weakness: Talismans of terror enjoy the thrill of combat, but not as much as they enjoy feasting on souls. At any moment on its wielder's turn, the talisman of terror may decide to invert its benefits, changing all bonuses to untyped penalties. Particularly cunning talismans may wait for months, slowly building their ranks, until the heat of an epic battle, when they all turn and work together to drag their former master into an early grave. Talismans of terror can also control the use-activated abilities which the base item possessed, and often use those abilities against their masters.

Ability Scores: In addition to the benefits of an intelligent item, a talisman of terror gains +4 to intelligence, +2 to wisdom, and +2 to charisma. A talisman of terror gains an extra +1 to its ego modifier.

Skills: +5 bonus to bluff, sense motive, and survival.

Feats: No change.

Sample Item: The Phylactery of Atrocitus

The Phylactery of Atrocitus is a small adamantine amulet forged in the shape of a dragon's face, with radiant inset rubies to give it a menacing look. The amulet at one point housed a portion of the soul of Atrocitus, high priest of the ruby dragon, Scorsus. Powerful heroes put both Scorsus and Atrocitus to the blade, and forever banished their souls to Abaddon. As Atrocitus' soul was ripped free of the Phylactery, the amulet underwent some dark and potent transformation. Desperate for warmth and hungry for the power of a soul to again reside within it, this unassuming amulet became the first Talisman of Terror. It gained intelligence, and quickly grew clever and malicious. It forged for itself a magical aura, a reason to be desired. And it has hunted, ever since.

As a magical item, the amulet gives its wearer a +4 deflection bonus to AC, and resistance 10 vs fire. The amulet can cast one 5d4 burning hands per day at its discretion, though it usually reserves the spell for desperate times or the downfall of its wearer. The chain attached to it can expand or contract to any length, allowing it to be worn around the neck of nearly any creature. It has become somewhat famous as a powerful relic of history, and would be immediately recognized by any historian or artificer. Despite its protection being worth only 59,000 gold (32,000 + [1.5 x 18,000]), the amulet usually brings a price of 75,000 gold when sold at auction. The cone of fire it breathes is regarded as an unnatural and mystical effect, as few of its previous owners realized that the amulet was intelligent and capable of casting a spell, and no one knows the secret to "forcing" the effect.

Spell-Like Abilities
1/day - Burning hands, caster level 5th (5d4 fire damage, 15 ft. cone, Ref DC 12 for half)

Special Abilities

Magical Item Properties: Any creature wearing the Phylactery gains energy resistance 10 vs fire, and a +4 deflection bonus to AC.

Moment of Weakness: The phylactery can suppress its magical item properties at will, or even reverse them. While reversed, the creature wearing the phylactery takes a -4 penalty to AC and double damage from fire, to a maximum of 10 extra damage.

Intelligent Item Properties: Base ability scores 12 Int, 12 Wis, 12 Cha. Telepathy, Senses 60 ft., Darkvision, Read magic. Characters wearing the phylactery take 1 negative level unless they are CE in alignment, though the phylactery can suppress this effect. Ego score 12 (will save DC 12 if the phylactery attempts to control its wearer). May cast a burning hands spell (CL 5th) 1/day.

Choke: Other than its cone of flame, the phylactery's only attack is made by tightening its chain around the wearer's neck. This attack initiates a grapple in addition to the listed damage. If this grapple succeeds, the phylactery begins constricting for an extra 3 damage each round, in addition to the normal grapple effects. The amulet is too small to completely grapple its foe; its victims do not gain the grappled condition, though the phylactery does as normal.

Strangle: Creatures the phylactery grapples cannot speak or cast spells with verbal components.

Telepathy: The phylactery can communicate telepathically with its wearer, though it rarely chooses to do so. It can also communicate with any other intelligent item within 30 ft.

Unforged: Though the phylactery can be destroyed through many methods, it can only be unforged through one: it must be melted down over a fire of the burning flesh of an adult metallic dragon. If subjected to this particular method of destruction, the phylactery is summarily destroyed, and any offspring talismans of terror which it created are immediately unforged as well.

Corrupt Thoughts: The phylactery radiates evil thoughts into magical items near it. It projects 12 corruption points each day, distributed in any way to the magical items around it. When the number of corruption points in an item exceed its hit points, that item must make a DC 18 Will save each day thereafter that it receives at least 1 corruption point or else it becomes a Talisman of Terror and is considered the offspring of the phylactery.

Soulforging: When its wearer dies, the phylactery improves itself by an amount of gold pieces equal to 200 x the number of hit dice its wearer possessed. This improvement can include new abilities or powers from the magical item creation rules, or from the powers available to intelligent items.

Ecology

Environment The phylactery can usually be found in a museum or in the private collection of wealthy benefactors. It hungers for souls, and rages that it cannot escape and feed, and vents its anger into the magical artifacts around it.
Organization Single, Collection (Phylactery and 3-7 other talismans), Museum (Phylactery and 8-30 other talismans)
Treasure None, though if the evil can be purged from it, the phylactery would have incredible value as a magical item in its own right.

”We’re waging war here. Anyone could die at any time. She doesn’t understand that. But like I said, she’s a lot like me. Once she gets going, she won’t back down. That’s why I’m letting her fight.” -Kittan Bachika, older brother of a future aegis mechanic.

With the power of machinery and an unbreakable will, the aegis mechanic never stops fighting for what she believes in. With the incredible power of a mechanized shield and military training, she protects her allies as no others could hope to do.


Role: A defensive support, relying on her shield and defensive training to grant power to allies and see any threats before it’s too late.

Alignment: Any good. While most aegis mechanics are chaotic due to their versatility and unpredictability, there is a significant minority that fights to keep a promise or honor an oath. As she fights for peace and an end of conflict, she must be good.

Hit Die: d10

Starting Gold: 5d4 x 10 gp (125 gp)

Class Skills
The aegis mechanic's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Acrobatics (Dex), Appraise (Int), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (Engineering) (Int), Knowledge (History) (Int), (Local) (Int), Knowledge (Nobility) (Int), Perception (Wis), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), and Survival (Wis).

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the aegis mechanic.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The aegis mechanic is proficient with all simple weapons and two martial weapons of her choice, as well as with light armor and all shields (including tower shields).

Mechanical Aegis (Ex): From the start, the aegis mechanic has had an amazing tool, a fantastic ally. She begins her journey with a masterwork shield - hereby referred to as her aegis - which possesses special properties. It has a total weight value of 1 pound, and is collapsible to the form of a 2 inch-diameter disk. It may be expanded to full size or collapsed to its “dormant” state as a swift action.

While she holds her aegis, and an adjacent ally provokes an attack of opportunity, she may give up her AC bonus from her aegis to grant an equal bonus to said ally. This counts as an attack of opportunity for the purposes of anything which would grant additional attacks of opportunity.

At 2nd level, and every four levels level thereafter, the mechanical aegis grants an additional +2 bonus to AC. At 4th level and every 4 levels thereafter, her aegis grants an additional +1 to the AC of an ally when she gives them her aegis’s AC bonus. Starting at 10th level, she may choose to exchange two points of AC bonus to grant her aegis a +1 special ability, or four points of AC bonus to grant it a +2 special ability. At 15th level, she may grant it a +3 special ability in exchange for 6 points of AC bonus, and at 20th level, she may exchange eight points of AC bonus for a +4 special ability.

Scan the Field (Ex): Upon starting her quest in earnest, the aegis mechanic has made sure to know of all that occurs around her, so as not to lose another ally. Starting at 2nd level, when in combat, she gains a bonus to all Perception checks equal to her class level. At 5th level, and every 5 levels thereafter, this bonus increases by +2.

Watch the Horizon (Ex): While training for war, the aegis mechanic was always told that the one who acts first, stands last. Such a lesson made an impact on her, and she is always watching. From 2nd level on, she gains a bonus on Perception checks to notice foes equal to half her class level, and gains a bonus to her Initiative checks equal to her Wisdom modifier. At 4th level and every 5 levels thereafter, these bonuses increase by +2.

Methods of Steel (Ex): Her allies are her life, and to permit one death is to allow unanimous demise. With a heart of mythril, a soul of hellfire, and a stance of adamantium, she does not fall, and neither shall her forces. At 3rd level, and every 3 levels thereafter, she learns one method of steel. Unless otherwise stated, all methods of steel are exceptional abilities.

Unbreakable Form (Ex): With a foot on the battlefield and another at the cemetery, the aegis mechanic has been through more hardship than many could imagine. A devotion to end war and bring peace to reality now motivates her against all odds. Beginning at 7th level, hen she moves less than 10 feet in one round, she gains DR/- equal to her Constitution modifier. At 12th level and every 4 levels thereafter, her DR/- increases by +2.

Your Body Is Just As Mine (Ex): Despite all the efforts of boot camp and the academies, there are countless unlearned soldiers that fall far too soon because they don’t have the proper training. The aegis mechanic, a warrior of peace, seeks to end such failures and allow those she helps to see another sunrise. Starting at 8th level, she may spend a standard action give up any damage reduction she possesses to give it to adjacent allies. She must exchange this on a one for one basis, so for every point of DR she gives up, one ally of her choice gains of one DR. Once an ally is affected by this, it lasts for a number of rounds equal to her Wisdom modifier, even if they cease to be adjacent to her. From 13th level on, she may grant one point of DR to two adjacent allies for every point of DR she gives up. She may not apply both points of DR from one point given up to the same ally.

Stable Body, Shifting Body (Ex): The only constant is change, a fact that is especially true in war. She knows that a lack of adaptation leads to a lack of life, and as her cause cannot live without her, she refuses to fall. Beginning at 11th level, as a move action that provokes attacks of opportunity, she may exchange up to half of her Fortitude bonus to gain an equal bonus to her Reflex. At 17th level, she may now only give up up to one third of her Fortitude bonus, but adds twice that amount to her Reflex.

Gracious Generalissima (Ex): Her fight is not over. Her war on war has just begun. Countless great men were lost, and they can never be replaced. And yet, her forces fight harder than ever before, and her recruits are more passionate than she can ever remember. At 20th level, the aegis mechanic gains Leadership as a bonus feat, and treats her leadership score as its actual value times three for the purposes of gaining followers. If she already has Leadership, she treats her leadership score as its actual value times four for the purposes of gaining followers. Furthermore, she permanently gains the Good subtype, and may never be changed from good.


Methods of Steel:
Arcanist’s Barrier (Ex): The aegis mechanic reduces the arcane spell failure of all shields and armor with which she is proficient by 15%. She can give up this reduction of arcane spell failure as a move action to grant it to allies, as if by way of Your Body Is Just As Mine. She does not need to have Your Body Is Just As Mine to select this method. This method may be taken multiple times. Its effects stack.

Armorer’s Queen (Ex): One cannot simply allow those who have never wielded your greatest tools to smash away in a feeble attempt to improve it. No, you must take up the hammer and anvil, so as to become truly great. The aegis mechanic gains Craft Magic Arms and Armor as a bonus feat, but it only applies to shields. She does not need to meet the prerequisites. For every spell which she does not have that an enchantment needs, she may increase the price of the enchantment by half the total cost of the enchantment, representing her hiring of a mage to assist in her endeavors. She must be at least 7th level to select this method.

Barreling Champion (Ex): Like a sphere of steel propelled from a formidable cannon, or an iron bull rushing a vermilion cape, one must risk a full-force charge, cheered by her companions. When wearing heavy armor, the aegis champion no longer suffers penalties to the multiplier of her charge speed. Additionally, for every ally within ten feet of her at any point along her charge, she gains a cumulative +1 bonus to damage.

Elder’s Spirit (Ex): Keeping one’s mind sharp is always a priority, especially in the twilit years. As she is determined to live to the end of her cause’s need, the aegis mechanic is an expert at honing her wit. As a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity, she may grant herself a +2 bonus to any one mental ability score for a number of minutes equal to her class level. At 12th level, this bonus increases to +4. At 20th level, it increases to +6. This may only be done 3 times per day.

Glorious Weight (Ex): Armor is a blessing and a burden, but the truly defensive know how to lift its weight from their shoulders. The aegis mechanic gains medium armor proficiency, treats the weight of all medium and light armor as 10 pounds lighter, and does not suffer any penalties to her speed as a result of wearing medium armor. She must be at least 6th level to select this method.

Heaving Might (Ex): A masterful soldier must have the finest equipment, and defense is paramount for the defensive. The aegis mechanic gains heavy armor proficiency, treats the weight of all armor as 20 pounds lighter (to a minimum of 0.1 pounds), and does not suffer any penalties to her speed as a result of wearing heavy armor. She must have the glorious weight method and be at least 12th level to select this method.

Let's Dance (Ex): A true expert can dodge just as she cowers, swinging around atop her shield to evade strikes. The aegis mechanic may, as an immediate action when her touch AC would be attacked, sacrifice up to half of her aegis's shield bonus to AC to gain an equivalent dodge bonus to AC. She must be at least 12th level to select this method.

Nights Out (Ex): The beings who prey at night are the worst in a warzone, where all are too weary from combat to fight for one more minute. The aegis mechanic now regains hit points from sleep in half time, needing only four hours to be fully rested. Additionally, she gains low-light vision if she does not already have it.

Starlight Breaker (Ex): With a powerful enough thrust and a hard enough tool, anything can be broken. As a full-round action while using her aegis, the aegis breaker can move up to half her land speed and make a sunder attempt against up to three pieces of equipment wielded by one foe, with a +4 bonus to her CMB. She makes one roll and compares it to the foe’s CMD, and adds any modifiers for the equipment individually.

Warding Command (Ex): Thieves are always a danger in the warzone, and few can properly prepare for such an occurrence. The aegis mechanic is the exception. As a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity, she may mark a number of consecutive 5-foot squares up to her class level as militant property. Any enemy creatures that pass through any of said squares (or up to 15 feet above them) for as long as she doesn’t go more than 200 feet from said squares cause her to get an instinctive sense that she and her team are in danger, as well as what direction the danger is in.

Youthful Frame (Ex): One’s body is important, especially in youth. As a former (or current) youth herself, the aegis mechanic understands that. As a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity, she may grant herself a +2 bonus to any one physical ability score for a number of minutes equal to her class level. At 12th level, this bonus increases to +4. At 20th level, it increases to +6. This may only be done 3 times per day.

Badass


Modified Class: Fighter.

A badass thrives off of other peoples fear of himself and likes to build a reputation of himself. He has no code of honor, he just likes seeing other people squirm.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency

A badass is not proficient with heavy armour or tower shields.


Wrestle

At 1st level, the badass gains the Improved Unarmed Strike and Improved Grapple feats.

This ability replaces the first fighter bonus feat.


Bully (Ex)

At 2nd level, a badass becomes skilled at bullying his opponents and making them feel as if they are otherwise lesser, or not as good, as he is. The badass gains a +1 bonus on bull rush and grapple combat manoeuvre and intimidate checks. The badass also gains a +1 bonus to CMD when attacked with the bull rush and grapple combat manoeuvres and intimidate checks. These bonuses increase by 1 for every four levels after 2nd (to a maximum of +5 at 18th level).

This ability replaces bravery.


Intimidating Prowess

At 3rd level, the cad gains the Intimidating Prowess feat.

This ability replaces armor training 1.


Keep them in check (Ex)

At 5th level, a badass gains a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls against any creature that he made a successful bull rush, grapple or intimidate check against in the current combat. This bonus increases by +1 for every four levels beyond 5th (to a maximum of +4 at 17th level).

This ability replaces weapon training 1 and 4.


Terrifying Grab (Ex)

At 7th level, when a badass succeeds in a grapple combat manoeuvre against an opponent, he may make an intimidate check as an immediate action as part of the manoeuvre.

This ability replaces armor training 2.


Humiliate (Ex)

At 9th level, as a full-round action, a badass can belittle and insult a single creature that can understand it and is within 30 feet. The badass and the target must make opposed Intimidate checks; if the badass wins, the target is humiliated and takes a -2 penalty on Wisdom for a number of rounds equal to the badasses Charisma and Strength modifier (minimum of 1 round). If the badass fails the opposed Intimidate check, the target shrugs off the insults. This ability can be used in conjunction with terrifying grab or after using an immediate action after bull rushing a target into a solid object. The penalty increases by 2 every 4 levels, up to a maximum of -6 at 17th level.

This ability replaces weapon training 2.


Frightful Presence (Ex)

At 11th level, when an opponent attempts to attack a badass or include him in a harmful area of effect, they must make a Will save (DC equal to 10 + ½ the badasses character level + the badasses Charisma and Strength modifiers) for fear of reprisal, or suffer a -3 on attack and damage rolls, and saving throws against the badass for the remainder of the combat. Spellcasters that fail the save treat the badass as if he has spell resistance equal to 10 + his character level. Subsequent failed saves increase the spell resistance by +1. Those who succeed on the save are immune to the effect for 24 hours. This is a mind effecting fear based effect.

This ability replaces armor training 3.

Improved Intimidate (Ex)

At 13th level, a badass ignores the standard restriction of being unable to intimidate a target past shaken. If a badass successfully demoralizes a target that is already shaken, that target becomes frightened instead. In addition, intimidating, including humiliate, only takes a move action instead of a standard and full action.

This ability replaces weapon training 3


Cowering Blow (Ex)

At 15th level, when a badass confirms a critical hit, the opponent must make a Will save (DC equal to 10 + ½ the badasses character level + the badasses Charisma and Strength modifiers) or become panicked for 1 round.

This ability replaces armor training 4.


Serious Cruelty (Ex)

At 20th level, any critical threats a badass makes against a creature that he made a successful bull rush, grapple or intimidate check against in the current combat are automatically confirmed.

This ability replaces weapon mastery.

Titan Toppler

Author's Note
I made this class because I was so disappointed with the Titan Mauler barbarian archetype that could have been so cool but fell so flat. Please note that the seeming dead levels in this class actually have abilities, they just happen to be abilities from earlier levels that have grown more powerful.

"You gotta be kidding me, there's no way you can even lift that thing!" - Unknown Bandit, last words.

In many tales spread among commoners and the nobility, there are accounts of heroes who are powerful enough they are capable of wielding weapons so massive that the average man could not even hope to lift, and can do so with seemingly minimal effort. In tales, they use these weapons to kill giants, krakens, massive dragons, trolls and titans, beings great and terrible. Many experienced fighters scoff at the concept, dismissing the tales as ridiculous fantasy and listing reasons for the utter impracticality of using improperly sized weapons, and the futility of trying to do so in a fight. In the majority of cases, these fighters would be correct, but there are a few in the world capable of turning all the practicality in the world on it's head. The Titan Topplers are one such group, hunting beings the size of buildings and wielding massive weapons with impossible ease and executing incredible displays of power and skill with these tools of destruction.

Adventures: Why does a Titan Toppler adventure? Why don't you just ask why the sky is blue, or why the good die young or some other inane question? What else would a brutally powerful warrior do with giant weapons and world rending strength?

Characteristics: Titan Topplers are brutal combatants, causing huge destruction with their abilities and obliterating their foes with massive force. What can they do outside of combat, you ask? Who cares?

Alignment: Any. Titan Topplers come form many different backgrounds, ideals, and personalities. Their only commonality is that they are all totally awesome. And also the whole wielding ridiculously oversized weapons thing.

Religion: A Titan Toppler worships whoever he feels like worshipping, what are you gonna do about it?

Background: No one is exactly sure how one becomes a Titan Toppler. Maybe it's destiny, maybe it's insane and practically suicidal training, maybe it's magic enhancement ingrained from birth, maybe the blood of true titans runs through their veins, maybe it's that mad alchemist who's been pumping them full of volatile chemicals for five years, the stories of how people became Titan Topplers is almost always different, but almost always awesome.

Races: Oddly enough, no race larger than medium size or smaller than small size ever becomes a Titan Toppler, though notably as exceptions large races with the undersized weapons trait like centaurs have been seen in this class and medium creatures with the powerful build ability like half-giants have not been seen in this class. Overall though, the most common members of this class are human and dwarf.

Other Classes: Who they get along with varies greatly with their alignment and general personality. Those who respect powerful warriors will respect them, those who dislike "martial meat heads will dislike them. Those who admire awesome above all else will adore them.

Role: Titan Topplers are powerful warriors depending on whatever massive thing they wield and their terrifying force to crush their enemies. Some pick up other useful things as well.

Adaptation: One could decide that Titan Toppler's have a more specific origin story, such as they are an elite group of warriors trained from birth in their countries unorthodox but powerful style, defenders of justice trained to fight monsters in far off monasteries, people mystically empowered by titans for their own purposes or any of a million other possible explanations.

GAME RULE INFORMATION
Titan Toppler's have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Strength is most important, determining the usual things strength does as well as some valuable class aspects of the Titan Toppler. Next is constitution, because hit points and fortitude saves are always vital. After that it really depends on what type of character you want to make.
Alignment: Any.
Hit Die: d10
Starting Age: As barbarian
Starting Gold: As fighter

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Titan Toppler.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Titan Toppler's are proficient with all armor, as well as all simple and martial weapons, but not with any shields.

Titan Toppling (Ex): Titan Topplers have natural ability to fight those beings greater in stature than themselves. At 1st, 5th,10th,15th and 20th levels they gain a cumulative +1 dodge bonus to ac and +1 to hit and combat maneuver bonus and defense against any creature greater in size than themselves. Furthermore they may trip an opponent larger than themselves without provoking an attack of opportunity and may treat the size category of their weapon as their own size for the purpose of what opponents may be tripped and their size bonus to combat maneuvers when tripping foes of greater size. For example a medium 6th level Titan Toppler wielding a large sized greatsword could trip huge sized creatures and would receive +1 to trip attempts against any creature large sized or greater.

Author's Clarification
When I refer to weapon size, realize that a light weapon is two size categories lower that the creature size designed to wield it. A one-handed weapon is relatively one size category smaller and a two-handed weapon is roughly equal in size. This measure of size of the weapon is what I am talking about in any of these abilities that refer to optionally using the weapon size in place of your own for some purpose. Overall the class was designed to exalt the biggest weapons someone can wield rather than focusing on oversized smaller weapons that typically don't look nearly as impressive.

Larger Than Life (Ex): Titan Topplers are naturally intimidating, and gain the Intimidating Prowess feat as a bonus feat. Furthermore they may treat the size category of their weapon as their own size for the purposes of initiating and resisting intimidation.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): Titan Topplers are masterful combatants and possess keen battle instincts. They gain Uncanny dodge as a barbarian at second level.

Effortless Effort (Ex): A Titan Toppler of second level is just beginning to realize the strength hidden in their forms. They are treated as being one size category larger for the purposes of carrying capacity. This increases to two size categories larger at 8th level and three size categories larger at 14th level.

Weapon Deflection (Ex): Titan Topplers wield big weapons so effortlessly that they can often interpose their weapon in the way of incoming attacks. At 3rd level a Titan Toppler may add half his strength modifier (round down) as a shield bonus to Ac when he wields a two handed weapon. When fighting defensively or total defense he adds his total strength modifier instead.

Legendary Pecs (Ex): A Titan Toppler is so buff that a certain level of damage simply slides off his awesomely tough form and his body strengthens to match his nature. At 4th level he gains DR 2/-- and a +2 inherent bonus to strength, these bonuses increase to 4 at 10th level and 6 at 17th level

Weapon Technique (Ex): A Titan Toppler learns to wield his weapons in unusual ways that have useful benefits. At 4th level, and again at 14th level, select a single weapon special quality from the following : Blocking (which stacks with the shield bonus from weapon deflection), Brace, Deadly, Disarm, Distracting, Grapple, Nonlethal, Performance, or Trip, or negated Fragile quality, once chosen the selection may only be changed through intense retraining for at least 8 hours. Whenever he wields a weapon he is proficient with he may apply this special quality to it.

Small Feet, Big Steps (Ex): A Titan Toppler moves as something much greater in size than himself. At 5th level and again at 11th and 17th level a Titan Toppler adds 10 ft to his base land speed. This benefit is reduced by half whenever he wears medium or heavy armor. So an 11th level human Titan Toppler would have a speed of 50ft in light or no armor, or 30ft in medium or heavy armor. They may also make 5 ft steps in difficult terrain.


Grip of Giants (Ex): The most famous ability of Titan Topplers is the ability to wield oversized weapons. At 6th level, a Titan Toppler may wield melee weapons designed for creatures up to one size category then himself with no penalty. This increases to two size categories larger at 12th level and three size categories larger at 18th level. This means a 6th level human Titan Toppler could wield a large sized greatsword in two hands, or a large sized scimitar or dagger in one hand. However, they may not gain the benefits of any ability to add dexterity to attack or damage rolls such as the weapon finesse or dervish dance feats or agile magical enhancement when using oversized weapons, even if they are normally finesse weapons.

Titan's Reach (Ex): Once a Titan Toppler has adapted to the using oversized weapons better, they are able to take advantage of the sheer length of the weapons involved. A Titan Toppler of 7th level or greater may extend the reach of a large sized weapon they are wielding out to 10 ft. When they do this they may not attack within 5ft of themselves , effectively treating the weapon as a reach weapon. Using this on a large reach weapon makes its' reach 15 ft away, but disallows attack within 10 ft. At 13th level the reach of a huge sized weapon may be extended out up to 15ft but the 10 ft closest may not be attacked, or 20ft and the 15 ft closest may not be attacked for a huge reach weapon. At 19th level a gargantuan weapon may be extended out to 20 ft but the 15 ft closest may not be attacked, or 25 ft and the closest 20 ft may not be attacked for a gargantuan reach weapon. They may shift between any of their available reaches up to the size of their current weapon as a swift action before they have attacked in a turn. For Example, A medium sized 19th level Titan Toppler could treat a gargantuan sized weapon as having a reach of 5 ft, 10 ft but the closest 5 aren't threatened, 15ft but the closest 10 ft aren't threatened, or 20 ft. and the closest 15 ft. aren't threatened.

Unstoppable Hits (Ex): A Titan Toppler hits so hard with their massive weapons that shields, armor and plated flesh parts easily. A Titan Toppler of 8th level and above ignores up to 2 points of AC granted by Armor, Shield, or Natural Armor when they attack with a weapon of large size. At 14th level if they wield a huge sized weapon the ignored AC increases up to 4 granted bu armor, shield or natural armor and at 20th level if they wield a gargantuan or bigger weapon the ignored AC from armor, shield or natural armor is increased to 6.

Burst Barriers (Ex): Titan Topplers casually break through barriers others find impossible with easy swings of their massive weapons. A Titan Toppler of 8th level and above may treat the size of their weapon as their own size for the purpose of strength checks to break or burst items.

Weapon Sweep (Ex): A Titan Toppler eventually learns to deal with crowds of lesser beings in one fell swoop. A Titan Toppler of 9th level may use a full attack action to instead execute a single attack at his highest base attack bonus against each opponent in the current reach of his weapon as modified by Titan's Reach, making a separate attack roll against each. You can make no other actions that aren't swift, immediate or free actions in a round when you do this.

Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex): With improved experience comes better battle instincts. A Titan Toppler of 10th level gains improved uncanny dodge as a barbarian.

Terrifying Display (Ex): An experienced Titan Toppler can put on a truly terrifying display with their massive weapons, breaking the foes spirits and sending them running. A Titan Toppler of 11th level gains Dazzling Display as a bonus feat. In addition, every 4 rounds of shaken from demoralization may be traded for a round of frightened.

Impossible Sheath (Ex): A Titan Toppler is easily able to carry weapons much larger than themselves, something difficult to wrap ones head around. A Titan Toppler of 12th level is able to treat oversized weapons they carry as one size smaller for the purposes of carrying it into tight spaces and concealment, at 18th level, this becomes two sizes smaller.

Carve Through Obstacles (Ex): A Titan Toppler is capable of using truly massive weapons in tight quarters simply by going right through whatever is in the way, walls, floors, ceilings etc. A Titan Toppler of 12th level may use their over sized weapons in tight quarters by subtracting the Hardness of the surroundings from the damage done by each attack and leaving gouges of destruction throughout the environment. The Titan Toppler does this in such a way that no real wholes are opened up and somehow with minimal structural damage. If the weapon involved is adamantine it may ignore up to 20 points of the surrounding hardness when carving through.

Mass Driver (Ex): A Titan Toppler can do a powerful strike with the intent to force opponents away. At 13th level, a Titan Toppler can use a full attack action to make a single attack against a single opponent and initiate a free bull rush attempt against them as well , acting for the attempt as if you were the size of your wielded weapon and provoking no attacks of opportunity. You may choose whether or not to follow along with them when you do this. If they are at least 1 size category below your weapon they are automatically knocked prone if they move at least 5 ft. from the bull rush.

Enhanced Aspect (Ex): A high level Titan Toppler can wield their weapons in such a way that some important aspect is increased. At 16th level, a Titan Toppler may choose one of the following: change the critical threat range of your weapons to that of a specific weapon, change the critical multiplier of your weapons to that of a specific weapon, or change the damage of your weapons to that of a specific weapon of the same size and class (ex. as scythe to deal damage as a great sword.)

Rend the Earth, Sea and Sky Asunder (Ex): At the pinnacle of titanic power, the very earth, seas and skies tremble beneath the blows of such a powerful being. At 20th level, once per day per ability may produce an effect identical to a Tsunami spell(only within reach of a body of water at least lake sized), Earthquake spell (only within reach of the ground), or Whirlwind spell (only within reach of air) with a caster level equal to their Titan Toppler level by swinging their massive blades around with insane force.
