    Default CHOMP! Valgyti ruleset [PEACH], (expanded swallow whole rules)

    Valgyti: a lost art of fighting with your mouth and your stomach.

    'Ello all, first post and first contribution, most of this is simply a repost/tweak of an idea a buddy of mine tried that never got off the ground. Without further ado....



    Valgyti Combat:
    Valgyti check = 1d20 + base attack bonus + strength + size modifier. Like a grapple check, but certain things affect it without affecting grapple and visa versa.

    Escape check = grapple check or escape artist check.

    New Grapple Attack Options (if you have multiple attacks, you may use them for multiple grapple attacks)
    Grapple Attack: Ingest
    If you succeed at an opposed grapple check against a creature you are grappling, the target is now in your mouth. With creatures that are smaller than your mouth (which is two sizes smaller than you), you may repeat this action and place several creatures in your mouth, but with larger creatures you must swallow or spit out the first before you can ingest another. If the prey is your equal to your mouth size or smaller, you are no longer considered grappling (but the prey is). Targets in your mouth can be bitten (with no penalty), pinned, or swallowed. You may not attempt to consume any creature greater than 2 sizes above you (IE, a small creature may eat a Large creature but nothing bigger.)

    Grapple Attack: Swallow
    As an attack action you may make a single Valgyti roll. All creatures in your mouth are sent to your stomach unless they beat you with an opposed roll.

    So Basically:
    Free <-(0)-> Grapple <-(1)-> Mouth <-(2)-> Stomach
    Preds want to move prey to the right. They make individual grapple attacks to do (0), individual ingest attacks to do (1), a single swallow attack does (2) to all targets in the mouth. The Voracious feat gives preds a bonus attack to use for (1) or (2), but not (0).
    Prey want to move to the left. (0), (1), and (2) are all accomplished with a grapple attack or escape artist check. The Elusive feat gives a bonus attempt to do any of these.

    Stomach capacity: If you eat your size in food, your stuffing penalty is -4 . If you eat twice your size, its -8; three times your size, -12 and so on. The stuffed penalty applies to actions requiring speed and balance, like melee attacks, thrown weapon attacks, and str- and dex- based skill checks. Half of the stuffed penalty applies to AC, grapple rolls, and reflex saves. Valgyti attacks, initiative and most ranged attacks are not affected by the stuffed penalty. At -8 and every 4 points beyond it, a pred takes a -10 ft penalty to all movement. There is no maximum capacity, you can eat until you are too fat to stand up. Oh, the gluttony!

    Digestion: At the beginning of your turn, you can (if you want) deal digestion damage to everything in your stomach; this is automatic and does not require any action. In addition, as an attack action you may make a melee attacks against a target in your stomach, dealing digestion damage if you hit.
    Base digestion damage is 1d6+str for all creatures. After the 8 hours required to fully digest a meal, the pred recovers 1/8th of the digested meal's max HP, adding them to temporary HP if full.

    Stomach AC: Swallowed prey can make an attempt to cut their way out of a predator's stomach, rather than coming back up the same way they had went down. The AC of the stomach's interior is equal to 15 + Preds natural armor bonus. Dealing damage equal to 1/3 of the predator's total HP will cause the predator to get queasy, throwing up the character who has done the damage. Predators do not disgorge the entire contents of their stomachs--it is a character by character basis.

    Escaping from a stomach: Escaping from a stomach is simply a check of 15 + predators Valgyti bonus. There is no opposed roll to get out of the stomach - it is a set DC, based upon how efficient the predator is. However, once back in the throat/mouth, another opposed roll can be made to try and get back into a grapple...or, for the predator to once more swallow it's prey!


    Feats (Version 3.5):
    Predatory feats

    Predatory Instinct [Valgyti]
    You have a hunger that can only be satisfied with a live meal.
    Prerequisites: none
    Benefits: You gain a +2 bonus on Valgyti checks and on intimidate checks involving predation.
    Note: Devourers or creatures with the Predator template gain this feat as a bonus feat at 1st level.

    Voracious [Valgyti]
    You really enjoy eating.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, one other Valgyti feat
    Benefit As part of a standard or full attack action, you may make one additional attack at your highest base attack bonus. This attack must be a Valgyti action (ingest or swallow), so you must already be grappling to use it.

    Improved Chomp [Valgyti]
    You eat by grabbing prey in your jaws.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, Base Attack Bonus +4, bite attack
    Benefit If you score a hit with a bite attack, you may attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity.
    Normal: Starting a grapple requires a melee touch attack and provokes an attack of opportunity.
    Note: This feat overlaps with Improved Grapple; the latter is intended for those who start grapples with their hands, and this feat for predators who mainly grapple with their mouths. If you take both feats, you may start a grapple with either method, and always have the +4 bonus when doing so.

    Greater Chomp [Valgyti]
    You take prey in a single bite.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, Improved Chomp, Two other Valgyti feats, Base Attack Bonus: +7
    Benefit: When you successfully start a grapple following a bite attack, you may chose to have the target start out in your mouth.
    Normal: A successful bite allows you to start a grapple, a second grapple attack is needed to ingest the target.

    Ambush Chomp [Valgyti]
    Your prey are caught off guard and sent down the hatch before they even know what's happening.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, Improved Chomp
    Benefit: When making a bite attack versus a target denied their dexterity bonus to AC, you gain the benefits of Greater Chomp feat.
    Special: If you already have the Greater Chomp feat, you instead gain a +4 bonus on ingest attempts versus a target denied their dexterity bonus to AC.

    Tight Belly [Valgyti]
    Once inside, your prey find it difficult to do anything other than dissolve.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct
    Benefit: Characters in your stomach take a -3 penalty to attacks and escape rolls.
    Special: You may take this feat multiple times. Its effect stacks.

    Belly Crush [Valgyti]
    You know how to use your extra bulk to your advantage in close combat.
    Prerequisite: Improved Grapple, Predatory Instinct, three other Valgyti feats
    Benefit: When grappling, you do not apply half your stuffed penalty to grapple rolls to initiate a grapple, to deal damage or to pin. In addition, against opponents that are your size or smaller you may instead apply your stuffed penalty as a bonus, up to a maximum bonus equal to half your BAB, to offensive grapple rolls and grapple damage. (example: medium pred with BAB +6 and stuffed penalty -4 would take no penalty to offensive grapple rolls; against foes that are medium or smaller they would get +3 grapple attack and +3 grapple damage) Valgyti checks and defensive grapple checks are unaffected by this feat.
    Normal: Characters apply half of their stuffed penalty to all grapple rolls.

    Improved Mastication [Valgyti]
    As you eat, you may easily shred prey between your jaws.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, bite attack, Base Attack Bonus +6
    Benefit: You may make multiple bite attacks using your full base attack bonus against creatures you have ingested as part of a full attack action; such attacks gain a +1 circumstance bonus to hit and damage.
    Normal: You may make one bite attack per round. Biting ingested targets incurs no penalty or bonus.

    Cleave & Great Cleave [General]
    Special: These feats are triggered by successful ingest, as long as your mouth is not full following the attack. The bonus attack must be another ingest or a bite attack.

    Terrible Jaws [Valgyti]
    Your mouth is the stuff of prey's nightmares.
    Prerequisites: Predatory Instinct, one other Valgyti feat, intimidate 7 ranks
    Benefit Whenever you score a hit with your bite against a creature smaller than you, that creature must make a will save DC 10+1/2 your HD+your strength modifier or become shaken for 1d6 rounds

    Greater Churn [Valgyti]
    By focusing on your belly, you can make things very unpleasant for those inside.

    Normal: You may target individual creatures in your stomach with active digest attacks.

    Dexterous Maw [Valgyti]

    Deep Gut[Valgyti]

    I see your nommer and I counter with my nommee.

    I think eating more than your size is... kind of overkill though. Is this meant for creatures of all sizes?

    Perhaps if they were able to kill you in one hit, but otherwise no. And if they were able to kill you in one hit they probably wouldn't be a good candidate for consumption (or fighting in general, for that matter).

    Not only would you have to have some kind of magical stomach in order to even eat something your size (which you can do), but you seem to have failed to notice the fact that, for all intents and purposes, weapons don't matter.

    Think about it. A fist and a blade do the same type of damage, but in different magnitudes. You can slash someone or punch them a few times and in the end, they have the same level of injury, as far as the game knows. So even without the whole magical stomach thing, the point you have juxtaposed is rendered moot quite easily.

    Although I will admit both my buddy and I put a lampshade over that while cooking this up...

    Meh, why not. At least the rules seem pretty balanced. As it's generally assumed that fine creatures can't fit colossal ones in their stomach, you may want to limit this type of combat to creatures 2+ size categories smaller than themselves and make a featt that increases this limit by one size category whenever it is taken.

    I remember seeing this ruleset before during some random lurkings. Still as convoluted as before, but probably the closest you can bend the system to the desired intent.

    Lol. Thanks for pointing that out RoC, silly me... gonna have to tweak that. Though there are some creatures like fey with "hammerspace tummies" who that wouldn't apply to, most people will be subject to this, which I shall now edit into the above post.

    By the rules, a standard swallow whole attack lets you chop your way out from the inside without any particular extra harm to the guy you're cutting your way out of, with "muscle action" closing the hole. Logic and Swallow Whole are not close kin in D&D.

    It's fun to see rules for eating opponents. As a side note, this class initially stemmed from the idea that it would be fun to go into combat with a huge creature (such as a purple worm) and just eat it rather than it eating you.

    I've always been excessively amused by the idea of an elan Master Transmogrifist who makes one of his favored forms human and Infinite Variety's ridiculous abilities onto it - most notably the ability to swallow Huge enemies from a Purple Worm.

    Making it a standard rules effect almost seems to cheapen the absurdity somehow.

    I dunno, the idea that even a tiny little pixie could conceivably turn you into fey chow seems a little bit more absurd. But to each his own.

    Also open and hoping for suggestions. Whether or not they're related to this specific ruleset. :D

    As far as I know, this isn't true.
    Though creature type does determine if you require food or not, the actual amount of food you need seems dependant on your size alone (as the price of trail rations scale with size).
    That said, there aren't any rules for overeating or tummy-aches in DnD so you could just as easily argue that all creatures do or don't have hammerspace stomachs (though I'm inclined to call bs unless you find words along the lines of "hammerspace stomachs" somewhere in the rules).

    That said, there is a very specific reason why pixies can't eat me. I can't fit in their mouth.
    If tiny creatures had the ability to shrink others down, to open their mouths larger than themselves, or to teleport me into their stomach, there would be some sort of rule text supporting that (considering that one of those is an identifiable feature that would be listed under its descriptive text and two of those would count as special attacks).

    That's not to say that you can't make a vore fairy, of course, but the claim that all any creature can eat others larger than itself falls completely flat due to this logic. Vore in the sense that you're thinking of would be an aberration (and one requiring strong magic or multiple feats to even perform properly) rather than the norm.

    What is the "Devourer" class?

    Y'know, I don't know myself as they don't exist yet, unless someone else made one. I'll probably make one as a template and perhaps make a class, but for some creatures it would be really tough to justify multiclassing to devourer as opposed to the monster class.

    Also the template would be called Predator instead of devourer because I don't want confusion.

    Any response to my argument against the "megamouth fairy" theory I typed up above?

    Um.... Our Fey Are Different, and tl;dr?

    Honestly I'm busy trying to figure out Maptool, oh god.... and when I'm not doing that I'll be working on my actual campaign. Which I should post a separate thread for because I have sort of ideas for it now.

    Not to say I'll be unavailable outside of those, oh no! I'll be watching this with a close eye to see if anything crops up and will be debating what else to brew up.

    Uh. This has ben vaguely mentioned, but in case you didn't know.

    Vore does not mean eating things. Vore means eating things for sexual gratification.
    It is a fetish, and unless that was intentional, you might want to find a different name.
