    Spoiler: Backstory
    Show
    There is a saying among humans that, "History that is not remembered repeats itself". This is the philosophy of the Akatite.

    They were once a race of humans, who chose to create a library of knowledge that would last the ages. As such, they chose to make it in the Astral Plane. This plane, known for its power, would be the home of some five hundred members of the order. Back then, the order was known as the Order of Akaton, a god of knowledge. But over the centuries, the power of the plane in which they lived, casting divinations to discover new things and write it down, changed them. They became the Akatites, a race who values knowledge above all else.

    They are rare on the material plane, but are still native to it, strangely. Despite their oft living on the Astral Plane, none of them is actually native to it.

    Akatites look human, but are perhaps more olive in skin tone and perhaps a bit more regal. They often dress in either robes or armor, but never will they go without either. They dislike clothing that does not conceal figure, perhaps for some historical reason, or perhaps particular preference.


    Spoiler: Racial Traits
    Show
    • +2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom, -2 Charisma: In body, Akatites are much the same as humans. In mind, they are canny and wise beyond their years, but many are ultimately reserved personalities, perhaps to allow the flow of history to take its course without their diverting it.
    • Outsider (Native, Akatite): Akatites are outsiders native to the Material Plane. They have left their humanity behind in favor of lengthened lifespans and heightened minds.
    • Spell-Like Abilities: 3/day: Identify, 1/day Shield (Caster level equal to character level).
    • Scion of Knowledge (Ex): An Akatite Wizard gains a bonus spell to add to its spell book every fifth level. Also, an Akatite who has not been permanently banned from their monastery may research spells at their monastery without paying to gain access to another wizard's spellbook.
    • Akatites have a +2 racial bonus on all Knowledge skills.
    • Favored Class: Wizard.
    • Level Adjustment: +1
