View Full Version : Pathfinder Statting Gumiho/Kumiho as undead kitsune?

What I know:
In mythology, gumiho have a tendency to wander around cemeteries, eating the hearts of the deceased, very similar to what a ghoul is said to do.

My friend has expressed interest in kumiho, and I thought I might entertain his idea that they are pretty much what happens when a kitsune is murdered in lands permeated by negative energy.
Lighter fur and a greater focus on physical, rather than magical abilities, plus a taste for human[oid] flesh.

As I get the stats down, I was hoping to get some feedback from you guys. :)

EDIT: Here are some ideas I've come up with.
Rough Kumiho Template Ideas (applied to kitsune)
Low Light vision Replaced with Darkvision
Natural Weapon Focus(Bonus Feat, replaces Kitsune Magic)
+2 Strength, +2 Dexterity
DR 5/cold iron
Gain +5 temporary hit points by eating the heart of a sapient creature. These last for 24 hours. Spell like abilities gained from additional tails can only be replenished by consuming the heart of a sapient creature.
