    furious You will nom me! NOM ME I SAY! [PEACH]

    Continuing from where I left off with the series of Flaw-based Commoner PrCs!

    Not complete yet, but the bulk is up and ready for comments.

    EDIT: This now has a (sort-of) follow-up PrC!



    TASTED

    Spoiler
    Show

    by mirmin of DeviantART


    "Defeat is bittersweet, spike your ice with spice to be as hot as you are cool, and never forget that a sour face does not sit well with people."
    ~ Louco Pestír, venerable Tasted

    You fight creatures like how one makes a successful coup d’êtait: from the inside! You may be just a henchman to others, but everyone you meet will want a taste of you!

    ENTRY REQUIREMENTS
    BAB: +2
    Flaws: Delicious (Dragon 330, page 87)
    Skills: Climb 5 ranks, Escape Artist 2 ranks, Spot 2 ranks

    Spoiler
    Show
    Delicious
    Someone cast divine flavor on you.
    Benefits: All monsters attack you if able, regardless of their attitude towards the rest of the party. In addition, you go down smooth. When subjected to a swallow whole special attack, you are treated as two size categories smaller.

    For the purposes of this flaw, "monsters" include any carnivorous or omnivorous creatures with a Con score, excluding animals and creatures with a humanoid body shape (exceptions may exist at DM's leisure).


    Class Skills
    The Class Name's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Balance (Dex), Climb (Str), Escape Artist (Dex), Ride (Dex), Spot (Wis), Swim (Str) and Tumble (Dex).
    Skills Points at Each Level: 4 + Int

    Hit Dice: d12

    Go Down Smooth: A Tasted focuses on getting quite literally in the thick of things: by forcing herself down the throats of monsters to fight them from the inside. She can make an opposed Strength check against her foe once she has reached their mouth to open it up and slip inside as a standard action. She can only do this with foes at least one size category larger than her and they don’t need to have the Swallow Whole ability. While inside a creature the creature counts as flat-footed against the Tasted and cannot benefit from the effects of such things as Uncanny Dodge or the Dodge feat - furthermore they are denied their armour bonus and only half their natural armour counts. A Tasted can only take light weapons with her while going inside a creature this way and she cannot be wearing medium or heavy armour or holding a shield unless it is a buckler.

    For further information regarding being inside of another creature, see this post.

    Mounting the Enemy: A Tasted can climb on enemies that are at least one size category larger than her. Climb DCs for this tend to be in the 10-15 range, but are left up to the DM. To reach a foe’s head a Tasted usually needs to make one Climb check for every size category the foe is larger than her if the foe is bipedal and stands upright. For a quadruped or similar form of creature the amount of Climb checks required are reduced by 1 (to a minimum of 1). Certain factors in the creature’s build can add another check to this, like having a long neck.

    Nom de Nourriture (Su): As a Tasted, your name becomes widely known once you start fighting the way you do, as everyone will find it hilarious and yet awesome the way you bear yourself and handle your monstrous opponents. You gain a +2 on Diplomacy checks and Perform (comedy) checks if people know your name, but every time you tell someone your name, or someone else tells someone your name and they already know about your exploits since at least 1d4 days and you are within their line of sight, they must make a Will save (DC 10 + your class level + your Con mod) or immediately go up to you to lick you.

    This ability only works once on any person each day. People who spend two full successive days with you in a row become immune to its effect.

    Stomach Resistance: Having kept at her tactics for a while, a Tasted starts to develop a measure of resistance against the crushing of digestive systems and the acids therein. The Tasted gains DR/slashing or piercing and Acid Resistance equal to their class level.

    Taste: Having gotten inside your foes so often, being covered in saliva and the half-digested remains of food, practically a part of so many magical creatures right before their untimely death at your gut-stabbing hand, your body seems to have been… altered. At level 2 a Tasted becomes able to modify her body to emit a strong flavor to those she is licked by or those whose mouths she sneaks into. She selects one Taste option at level 2 and every level afterwards. She can change her current Taste as a standard action. Of course, she can also set it back to normal.

    Bitter: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or start shuddering from the yucky flavour and take a -2 penalty to Str and Dex for 1 round.

    Brothy: You taste like a meaty broth. If the target is carnivorous or omnivorous, it becomes very hungry. They are affected as if they are suddenly suffering from starvation and immediately need to start making Constitution checks. They must also make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or become fatigued because of the deliciousness and need to eat. If the target is herbivorous, it must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or become frightened. On a failed save it becomes shaken instead. You must be a level 4 Tasted before you can select this Taste.

    Dry: You taste like dry red wine. Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or feel as if slightly intoxicated. They become dazzled for 1 round.

    Minty: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or feel as if their tongue is freezing over. They take 1d6 nonlethal damage as if affected by cold environments.

    Salty: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or become very thirsty. They are affected as if they are suddenly suffering from dehydration and immediately need to start making Constitution checks.

    Sour: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or have their face forcibly contorted into one that looks like a wrinkly old lemon. They take a -2 penalty to Con and Cha for 1 round.

    Spicy: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or feel as if their tongue is on fire. They take 1d6 nonlethal damage as if affected by hot environments.

    Sweet: Target must make a Fort save (DC 10 + class level + Con modifier) or be taken back to their childhood or the good places in life and take a -2 penalty to Int and Wis for 1 round.

    Sneak Attack: At level 3 a Tasted begins to have an intuitive sense for striking the more sensitive and critical anatomical spots on a creature’s body, even from the inside… especially from the inside. They can deal 1d6 Sneak Attack damage while flanking or attack a flat-footed foe. At level 5 this increases to 2d6.

    Revolting Strike (Ex): At level 5 a Tasted gains the ability to, once per day, execute a Revolting Strike. She must sacrifice one die of Sneak Attack to be able to use this ability. The target must make a Fortitude save with a DC equal to 10 + half the damage dealt. If the target fails the save it is nauseated for an amount of rounds equal to your Strength modifier (minimum 1). If the target succeeds they are sickened instead.


    NEW FEATS

    AFTERTASTE [TASTY]
    Prerequisites: Taste class feature, two Tastes
    Benefit: You can have two Tastes active at once. One is your primary Taste that affects an enemy on the round they taste you. The other one is your secondary Taste - your aftertaste. Your aftertaste affects the enemy on the next round and requires a seperate Fort save.

    BLOCK THE WINDPIPE [TASTY]
    Prerequisites: BAB+11, Go Down Smooth class feature, Sneak Attack +2d6
    Benefit: When using your Go Down Smooth class feature, you can make an attack of opportunity to lodge a weapon in the targets windpipe. The target must need to breathe, your Sneak Attack must apply to the attack and you must have an object in your hand. Make a Strength check opposed by the target's Con check. If you succeed, you manage to jam the object in the targets windpipe as you go down to their stomach. The target starts suffocating.

    EXTRA TASTE [TASTY]
    Prerequisites: Taste class feature
    Benefit: You gain an extra Taste.
    Special: You can take this feat more than once.

    MASTER JAWBREAKER [TASTY]
    Prerequisites: Climb 8 ranks, Escape Artist 4 ranks, Medium size or smaller, Go Down Smooth class feature
    Benefit: When making Strength checks for your Go Down Smooth class feature you get a +2 bonus if the target is Large, and another +2 for every size category larger than Large.


    PLAYING A TASTED
    You are tasty! You are hot! You are cool! You are bittersweet! Your milkshake brings all the boys to the yard! YOU WILL BE TASTED!
    Combat: Here's a section where you will describe common combat methods for your class. Remember to include information on how your class will use his powers in combat.
    Advancement: This is a section on different options and paths that the class can go down when they advance in power.
    Resources: What resources might a member of this PrC be able to draw on..

    TASTED IN THE WORLD
    I swear, I just wanted to lick the guy for some reason. That doesn’t make me a pervert, right?

    Tasted are well-known, but mostly tend to be written off as a folk tale, something silly to talk about at the local tavern or to tell kids - often to gross them out and have them run to their parents to ask them if it’s true. When you come to town though, suddenly it’s no longer a folk tale, but reality, and everyone and their mother - and their father - will want a piece of you. Just hope they don’t take a literal piece.
    Daily Life: Most Tasted live in isolated communities that are haunted by great cuisine of its inhabitants and monsters droolin’ for some chewin’. Chewin’ on your people, that is! They get up in the morning, eat breakfast - often made by a servant who is resistant enough to their flavourful charms - and then go out to slay monsters and bring peace to the region. Because if they don’t do it, who will? Also, the monsters often end up as food themselves. Gotta use every part, yanno?
    Notables: The lady Duchess Troyna of Hagginshen is the adoptive daughter of the late Duke of Hagginshen, said to have wanted her around him forever since he first saw her in the flesh. So succulent, so tasty… They say she’s one of the most capable diplomats of the country and that she is most often called upon when the King needs someone to talk to the giant and troll clans, the dragons or the Deviant Creator, the fleshwarping wizard Xinbaugh III.
    Organizations: Sadly, Tasted have discovered that when they meet others of their kind, they are not resistant to the taste of one another. While attempts have been made by some to create a Union for them, many churches have often busted them if they didn’t fall apart on their own, accusing them of cultist rituals involving a lot of… erm… temptation.

    NPC Reaction
    O GOD I WANT TO LICK YOU CAN I PLEASE PRETTY PLEASE WITH A CHERRY ON TOP AND A MINI CHERRY ON TOP OF THE CHERRY WITH SOME WHIP CREAM

    TASTED IN THE GAME
    Tasted are not likely to upset game balance since overall they are still weak compared to those they fight or fight alongside. They might be awkward in many parties though, and once inside a monster they can no longer be attack under the normal rules, but if they face a larger group they have a greater tendency to drag a fight on before they ultimately go down.
    Adaptation: It’s very likely that there haven’t been many Tasted in your campaign world yet, and if there have been, they probably got eaten before they became famous. As such, it is easy enough to bring them in, but once they’re in… you’ll find them too flavourful to want to let them leave.
    Encounters: It’s simple. If you don’t want to weird out your players, don’t ever let them meet a Tasted. Especially considering they will need to make Will saves against their Nom de Nourriture ability as well. Seriously. Otherwise? Go crazy!

    Once again, I swoop in and post links to (my) prior art.

    Look! Up in the sky! Its a condor! Its an alligator! No... its Cross-Reference Dragon!!!
    Tiger Claw Maneuvers related to "Swallow Whole".

    Also, what is the intended mechanical effect of "Mounting the Enemy"? It doesn't seem to fit in with the rest of the class.

    You need to specify default damage per round for enemies without swallow whole.

    Basically, normally I think you can't climb on enemies or generally just aren't allowed to or at least intended to. Mounting the Enemy is just to say "you can Climb onto your enemy", and is actually necessary if you intend to use Go Down Smooth.

    And that's a good idea yeah... let me try figure something out by extrapolating from creatures that do have Swallow Whole.

    In the meantime I updated the abilities with (Ex) or (Su) tags where necessary and added a picture that seems appropriate.

    You should note that while inside the creature, they are flat-footed even if they have Uncanny Dodge, Improved uncanny dodge, or some other ability that renders them immune to being flat-footed. The creature can still be immune to sneak attacks some other way, but if you've got clean access to their liver, you should darn well be able to stab it.

    Also, what exactly does the Delicious flaw do?

    Oh, right... got to get to the head before you can force your way into its mouth... maybe D&D often doesn't worry about stuff like that? In either case, I approve, although you might want to add some fluff to the climbing ability to make the connection more obvious to GMs (so they will enforce the need), and players.

    Ah, right. I'll make a note of that. But yeah, if you're inside a zombie dragon, or a plant creature, Sneak Attack still won't work.

    And the Delicious Flaw is a Commoner-only Flaw that basically makes any monster attack you, regardless of its attitude towards your party members. You also count as two size categories smaller for purposes of being affected by Swallow Whole (which could make you get swallowed by creatures of the same size as you if you'd get a size increase).

    Yeah, DnD isn't really occupied with such things, so houseruling is in effect, kinda. I'll add more flavour later, for sure, because crunch-only is boring and with this I got more of an idea for it than with the previous PrCs (with which the fluff didn't really need explaining as it was that obvious).

    Nom doesn't say it only works the first time you tell someone your name... so could I walk through a town where they've heard of me and chant "Magicyop, Magicyop, Magicyop, Magicyop" and have people run up and repeatedly lick me?

    Hm... point. It's not intended to work that way though, but I'll just leave that up to DM decisions for Rule of Funny.

    Taste has now been added! I plan on making more to add to it later though.

    Also added lots more flavour descriptions and changed the Nom de Nourriture ability to function off Con instead of Cha. Yum~

    Sad to say (not really ), but no. This would probably fall under "doesn't stack if it is from the same source unless it specifically states it stacks".

    Oh, I have got a few ideas. There are 7 more Commoner flaws that I haven't touched upon yet, one which interacts with the Delicious flaw that the Tasted is based off. I have plans for at least three of these, though I also have ideas for a non-Commoner-specific PrC that I want to put out soon. And there is also the two ToB disciplines that I've made a basic write-up of that I should finish sometime... but the Commoner flaw PrCs come first. Those are easier and I'm on a roll with them right now anyway.

    Remember that it's only 1d4 nonlethal as if from a cold environment. The Endurance feat, being Undead or being a Construct would cancel that out.

    Or do you think I might as well make it 1d6, or make it 1d4 lethal damage? (1d4 cold for Minty, 1d4 fire for Spicy?)

    Taste: Having gotten inside your foes so often, being covered in saliva and the half-digested remains of food, practically a part of so many magical creatures right before their untimely death at your gut-stabbing hand, your body seems to have been… altered. At level 2 a Tasted becomes able to modify her body to emit a strong flavor to those she is licked by or those whose mouths she sneaks into. She selects one Taste option at level 2 and every level afterwards. She can change her current Taste as a standard action. Of course, she can also set it back to normal.
    Should it only apply to creatures that can be affected by abilities that are mind affecting?

    Also, maybe they should have a PRC or a capstone ability that allows them to dominate and 'pilot' the creatures they are inside (they wrench the organs, ultimately affecting the brain entirely and all actions) - as long as they remain inside.

    Or do you think I might as well make it 1d6, or make it 1d4 lethal damage? (1d4 cold for Minty, 1d4 fire for Spicy?)
    Maybe it should be both lethal and non-lethal?

    Non-lethal damage from a cold environment is usually exhaustion I'd rule. You aren't freezing specific body parts and you are trying to constantly work and keep moving to keep warm (ie. warming yourself). Which is why environments that are 'too cold' tend to do lethal damage and can penetrate insulation.

    Cold weather outfits are just insulation - so you still need to work to keep warm. It's just the heat lasts longer, but you still need to keep working in colder environments.

    Actual sealed suits would be the best thing because you don't need to work to keep warm if you have your own thermal cycling atmosphere - so you could sleep in an open blizzard and be unaffected (as long as the suit is on).
    ----

    So maybe lethal damage since their frozen tongue seems to cause them great pain (as in like, their skin is splitting open and the blood flow is being affected which could kill quite quickly; even frostburn is just non-lethal damage though - it doesn't rupture organs and it merely numbs limbs and destroys skin... albeit very difficult to recover from since muscles can be affected too I believe).

    I dunno... not working against constructs, undead, or anything with the Endurance feat sounds just about right for a feature of this class.

    This makes me want to find a way to become Fine, and then buff my Str. Then I will force myself down my enemy's throats and bring horrible death to their intestines!

    Also, do you taste good to yourself? I mean, if I tasted good to myself, I'd be licking my fingers all the time.

    That gives an interesting new option for something you could put in M-Bark.

    Possibly something to do with sticky fingers; like a bonus to your climbing on enemies?

    Hmm... Warhulk and a bunch of shrinking effects? +20 str, you could use Compression and Reduce Person would make a Halfling fine sized. You can put those together in a fairly expensive magic item which would make them permanent.

    Calculated price and made an item:

    Super Power Hat of Shrinking
    150,000 GP
    Reduces your size by three size categories while you wear the hat. This increases your dex by 6 and reduces your strength by 6, but the hat also boosts your strength by 6, so you take no strength penalty and gain 6 dexterity.

    If you're willing to pay for an epic item you can make one that gives you insane strength while shrinking you.

    If you select a Taste that you like, you taste good to yourself.

    Hmmm... it's an idea. I had thoughts of making a feat or two to go with this PrC, that could be another one.

    Take note that a Halfling cannot enter Warhulk though, and if you're saying you'd want +20 Str in a magic item... that'd be costly. Very very much so.

    For that item you should note the Dex bonus and Str penalty are size bonuses/penalties, whereas the Str bonus is an enhancement bonus.

    Hmmm... Tiny-sized Half-Ogre Warhulk... the only problem with that would be the provoking of AoOs when entering an enemy square to start climbing them. Perhaps an item that can reduce you to Fine size could otherwise work. There is a Wu Jen spell that at a high enough caster level is capable of that.

    What Wu Jen spell? The hat was whipped up in about five seconds, using the DMG chart, I could make something better if I knew that spell and put some time into it.

    If you are using MONSTER CLASSES... ;-)

    Gestalt character...

    Tarrasque 20//Tasted 5/Warhulk 10/Barbarian 5

    With a mega powered hat of shrinking, which he uses his tarrasque ability to devour and permanently make a part of him.

    With a minor amount of fiddling to make sure he has good strength...

    Tarrasque 20
    + Warhulk 20
    + Starting 18
    + Raging 6
    + Item 6
    + Ability Scores 5

    = Fine sized with 75 strength!

    It would have to be a pretty amazing shrinking spell, though. Tarrasque is colossal by level 20.

    Minute Form, Complete Arcane 115. It's the opposite of Giant Size, Complete Arcane 110. Both Wu Jen 8 spells.

    Also, take to mind you must start with a level in Commoner to be able to have Commoner flaws, so you'd have to start with Terrasque 1//Commoner 1. And considering the entry requirements (Climb 5 ranks!), the next level you couldn't be a Tasted just yet either.

    Added the Brothy Taste and three Feats! If I can make up more flavours, or "advanced" flavours like this Brothy one, they'll be added over time.

    Ohh! That is SO COOL. I LOVE the feat which lets you block their windpipe.

    Looked up the Wu Jen spell. Ladies and gentlemen, I present you with...

    The Hat of the Mega-Morsel
    1,016,000 GP
    It is said that this hat was once worn by a legendary Tasted who slipped down the throat of a prismatic dragon. It seems to have acquired some magical properties...
    The wearer shrinks to fine size. They gain a +8 size bonus to Dexterity, a +8 size bonus to AC, and a +10 luck bonus to Strength. Your space is now 1/2 ft. and you have no reach.


    Slap that on the following build:

    Tarrasque 20//Commoner 1/Tasted 5/Warhulk 10/Half-Troll 2/Rogue 2

    And you have what amounts to the best Tasted EVER.

    Note: Shouldn't you talk about the protection garnered from being in a creature's stomach? First of all, the creature itself can't attack you except with its stomach acid and stuff, second of all, other creatures can't attack you without hurting the thing you are in. And even then, you should get reduced damage. Maybe no damage, even.
