    biggrin [3.5; PEACH] The PIG Master - the Chicken Master's brother!

    After making the Chicken Master earlier, I figured I might as well make another animal-flaw-based Commoner PrC.

    I've got ideas of expanding this further... but I'm not sure how to do it.

    EDIT: This now has a follow-up PrC!



    PIG MASTER

    Spoiler
    Show
    I don't have a really fitting image...



    ...so here's an image of a cute little piggie.


    They call him MISTER Pig!

    You carry a pig. Why? What is in it for you to carry a pig? When did you start carrying a pig? Maybe it was it given to you at a young age? Maybe you were born with it? Is it Maybelline? Whatever the case, you were forced to carry this damn pig for all your life, for better or worse, in sickness and in health, whether you loved, hated, cherished or loathed. No more! You're taking control, making that pig your pig, bonding with it on levels that someone of your average intelligence and insight might not have immediately considered!

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    Flaws: Pig Bond (Dragon 330, page 87)
    Skills: Handle Animal 4 ranks, Ride 4 ranks

    Spoiler
    Show
    Pig Bond
    You have a pig. Good for you.
    Benefits: You must at all times carry a pig that weighs equal to your maximum load. The pig refuses to walk on its own. If your Strength score increases, the weight of the pig increases to match your new maximum load. If your Strength score decreases... get a cart.
    Special: If more than a few inches ever seperates you and the pig, the pig transforms into Orcus and skins you (which probably kills you).

    This means you must always be in a space that your pig also occupies. For the basic pig, use boar stats, substituting gore for a 1d6+Str slam attack, and lowering HD by 1.


    Class Skills
    The Class Name's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Climb (Str), Handle Animal (Cha), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Spot (Wis), Swim (Str), and Use Rope (Dex).
    Skills Points at Each Level: 4 + Int

    Hit Dice: d8

    Companion Bond: At first level, a Pig Master becomes attuned more with his pig, allowing him to ride the pig instead of carrying it. The pig still counts as its original size in spite of this, and further gains the benefits that an animal companion would get (count the Pig Masterís class level as his equivalent Druid level for the purpose of determining animal companion benefits for the pig). Furthermore, a Pig Master must hold onto the pig for dear life and may never carry more than 10 pounds or the pig will take notice and an infernal force will blast the Pig Master off its back, resulting in the pig turning into Orcus and flaying him alive.

    Pig Empathy: A Pig Master can improve the attitude of a pig-like animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. The Pig Master rolls 1d20 and adds his Pig Master level and his Charisma modifier to determine the pig empathy check result. The typical domesticated pig has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly.
    To use pig empathy, the Pig Master and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time.
    A Pig Master can also use this ability to influence a pig-like magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a Ė4 penalty on the check.

    Pig Rider: A Pig Master gains his class level as a bonus to Ride checks while riding his pig. However, considering that riding something else would mean getting off his pig and thus meaning it would turn into Orcus to flay him alive, you can basically consider this a straight bonus to all Ride checks.

    Seed of Orcus: At level 3, the Pig Masterís pig gains the Fiendish template. At level 5 this is replaced by the Half-Fiend template.


    New Feat

    Demon Pig
    Prerequisite: Seed of Orcus (half-fiend) class feature
    Benefit: Your pig becomes immune to poison and one type of energy (acid, electricity, fire, sonic) and gains resistance 10 against all other types of energy (acid, cold, electricity, fire, sonic). Furthermore, you gain telepathic contact with your pig and can understand it perfectly, thus also granting you a +2 insight bonus to Handle Animal checks.

    And considering M-bark's avatar it's even more fitting.

    Anyway, i think these PrCs of yours are humorous, are you going to do one for each commoner flaw?

    Just too much fun. I wish I were in a funny campaign right now. I'd love to run a pig master! Your table could use a little fixing as well.

    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.

    Strictly NPC material from what I can tell... making a higher power version might be pretty easy though...

    Yeah, I realized that too late. I just copypasted the Chicken Master and then started editing. My internet got cut before I could attempt to fix it though.

    Prettymuch yeah, though of course you can always try running a Commoner campaign.


    And yes, I am planning on making more PrCs based off Commoner Flaws. I actually got one done while my internet was down for the Corpse Flaw... anyone interested?


    EDIT: Fixed the table and the leading-in paragraph.

    Why does it become a half-fiend? It's not a deviled ham pun is it?

    Your BAB table is off too I think. It shouldn't give you a +2 at level 1 as far as I know.

    D'oh. Fixed that. I mixed up the Fort save and the BAB.

    It becomes a Half-Fiend because the pig turns into Orcus and flays you alive if you move more than a few inches away from it. So it has to have a Fiendish origin of some sort.


    EDIT: Continuation of the series!

    I could see a group of orc NPCs with this class to harass my party.

    The Porcine Paladins!

    All of them trained to ride pigs that they have communed with since birth, they ride into battle, bearing very small lances and no armor! They are brave! They are fierce! They are sub-optimal! They are the Porcine Paladins!

    I really want to play a PC with a pig permanently tucked under one arm. I could do it like the mummy in The Graveyard Book, and claim it's lucky, insisting that any misfortune which befalls another character was due to their pig deficiency.

    Actually, if you were to really play a mummy, and used an egyptian influence, this could work. In ancient egypt, mummies were buried with their possessions in order to cross over and still have something left. So, you could basically flavor it as, the mummy died, and almost all of his stuff didn't cross over (an accident by the janitors), and now all he has are pigs. Thousands of them. He thinks that he is dead, and that he is currently fighting the forces of evil, who threaten his people in the real world. He also keeps on trying to insist that the other party members are dead. It would be interesting to say the least if he saw another mummy.
