    zylodrizzt, your request should be 1142 not 1139 as that was taken by JNAProductions. The next request should be 1143.

    H. 1141. I hope this works for you. Let me know what you think.

    Undead Diva Template

    Undead divas appear much as they did in life, although their jaws can open wider and their teeth are sharper. They often embrace finery and decadence and may assume the guise of nobility.

    Creating a Undead Diva

    Undead diva is an acquired template that can be added to any Fey, Giant, Humanoid, or Monstrous Humanoid with a Charisma score of at least 12 (referred to hereafter as the “base creature”). It uses all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

    Size and Type: Size is as base creature. Type becomes Undead and it gains the Augmented Subtype.

    Hit Dice: Increase all current and future HD to d12s. Do not recalculate attack bonus, saves, or skill points.

    Speed: As base creature.

    Armor Class: An undead diva gains its Charisma bonus as a deflection bonus to its AC from Unearthly Grace (see below).

    Attacks: As base creature.

    Special Attacks: An undead diva retains all special attacks of the base creature and gains the following.

    Charisma Drain (Ex): An undead diva can kiss a living victim by making a successful grapple check. If it pins the foe it, it kisses it, dealing 1d4 points of points of Charisma drain each round the pin is maintained. On each successive round, the Undead diva gains 5 temporary hit points.

    Operatic Wail (Su): Once a day as a standard action, an undead diva can use its operatic wail. This ability functions like wail of the banshee spell but it affects any number of creatures within a 60-foot radius of the undead diva. A successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + ½ the undead diva’s HD + undead diva’s Charisma modifier), negates.

    Spell-like Abilities (Sp): Once a day as a standard action, an undead diva can cast greater shadow conjuration and greater shadow evocation as a spell-like ability. CL is the same as its HD.

    Special Qualities: An undead diva retains all the special qualities of the base creature and gains those described below.

    Immunity: An undead diva is immune to sonic damage.

    Prima Donna (Su): Whenever an undead diva would take a morale penalty from a spell, spell-like or supernatural ability, it instead gains Fast Healing 5 for 1 minute. This does not stack but overlaps.

    Sotto Voce (Ex): By singing softly, an undead diva can grant a +1 morale modifier to any bardic performance (including its own) within 30 feet.

    Unearthly Grace (Su): An undead diva gains its Charisma modifier as a deflection bonus to its Armor Class.

    Abilities: As an Undead creature, an undead diva has no Constitution score. Otherwise as base creature.

    Skills: Undead divas have a +8 racial bonus on Perform (sing) checks. Otherwise same as the base creature.

    Feats: As base creature.

    Environment: Any, usually same as base creature.

    Organization: Solitary, pair or company (3-5)

    Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +2.

    Treasure: Double standard.

    Alignment: Always evil (any).

    Advancement: By character class.

    Level Adjustment: Same as the base creature +2.

    EDIT: Oops. Sorry Guys but you need a Constitution score to have Regeneration. Changed it to Fast Healing 5.

    P.E.A.C.H. Please Evaluate And Critique Honestly. Being nicer and kinder doesn't hurt either. Note I generally only critique 3.5 and Pathfinder material.
    Please, please, please when using non-core material, cite to the books. There are too many books to wade through to find the one with the feat, special ability or spell you use.
