    Lightbulb Solar Avatar (Superman 3.5)

    Solar Avatar
    "I feel like I live in a world made of... cardboard, always taking constant care not to break something, to break someone. Never allowing myself to lose control even for a moment, or someone could die. But you can take it, can't you, big man? What we have here is a rare opportunity for me to cut loose and show you just how powerful I really am."
    -Superman-

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Solar Avatar.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency:
    Solar Avatars are proficient with all simple weapons but with no type of armor.

    1st - Body of Steel (Su):
    The Solar Avatarís Body is highly resistant to damage, their skin seems as if it is tougher than steel. The Solar Avatar has natural armor equal to one quarter of the Solar Avatar's level (minimum 0) and damage reduction equal to the Solar Avatarís class level (bypassed by Kryptonite).

    1st - Enhanced Speed (Su):
    The Solar Avatarís body is incredibly fast, capable of moving at intense speeds. The Solar Avatar gains run as a bonus feat and a +10 enhancement bonus to all movement speed types. This speed bonus increases to +20 ft. at 5th, +30 ft. at 9th, +40 ft. at 13th, and finally +50 ft. at 17th.

    1st - Unarmed Strike (Su):
    A Solar Avatar gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat. A Solar Avatarís attacks may be with fists, elbows, knees, feet, and forehead. This means that a Solar Avatar may make unarmed strikes with his hands full.

    There is no such thing as an off-hand attack for a Solar Avatar striking unarmed. A Solar Avatar may thus apply his full Strength bonus on damage rolls for all his unarmed strikes. Usually a Solar Avatarís unarmed strikes deal lethal damage, but he can choose to deal nonlethal damage instead with no penalty on his attack roll. He has the same choice to deal lethal or nonlethal damage while grappling.

    A Solar Avatar unarmed strike is treated as both a manufactured weapon and a natural weapon for the purpose of spells and effects that enhance or improve either manufactured weapons or natural weapons. A Solar Avatar also deals more damage with his unarmed strikes than a normal person would. A Medium Solar Avatar deals 1d10 damage with his unarmed strikes instead of 1d3, while Small Solar Avatars deal 1d8 and Large Solar Avatars deal 1d12.

    At 6th level, a Solar Avatarís unarmed strike is considered to be magical for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction.

    At 12th level, a Solar Avatarís unarmed strike overcomes all damage reduction.

    Note:
    Spoiler
    Show
    This ability is based off of an ability found in the Olympian Class.


    2nd - Heatvision (Su):
    Within close range (25 ft. + 5 ft./2 levels) a Solar Avatar can create twin beams from his eyes to strike a target with a ranged touch attack, dealing more damage as the Solar Avatar increases in level at each even level. The damage dealt is half fire damage (rounding up) and half force damage (rounding down). The Solar Avatarís Heatvision is usable at will, but can only be used every 1d4 rounds, functioning as a standard action.

    3rd - Keen Senses (Su):
    The Solar Avatarís vision and hearing is so acute that he can hear the faintest noises and see from greater distances than would be normal. The Solar Avatar adds his Solar Avatar class level to all listen and spot checks.

    4th - Physique (Su):
    The Solar Avatarís body has grown incredibly strong while under the effects of sunlight. You receive a permanent +2 increase to Strength. This bonus increases to +4 at 7th, +6 at 10th level, +8 at 13th, +10 at 16th and finally +12 at 19th level. Carrying Capacity is also vastly increased, the Solar Avatar is never encumbered or slowed by heavy loads. Also, the Solar Avatar's carrying capacity is x2 at 4th, x3 at 7th level, x4 at 10th, x5 at 13th, x6 at 16th and finally x7 at 19th level.

    5th - Flight (Perfect) (Su):
    The Solar Avatar gains the ability to fly with perfect maneuverability at a speed of 100 ft., plus the bonus from his Enhanced Speed ability (See above).

    5th - Solar Rejuvenation (Su):
    Whenever in direct sunlight or within a magical effect such as the daylight spell, the Solar Avatar gains fast healing 5. This effect lasts as long as the Solar Avatar remains in the sunlight, plus an additional three rounds afterwards.

    7th - X-Ray Vision (Su):
    This ability allows the solar avatar to see into and through solid matter. Vision range is 20 feet, with the viewer seeing as if he were looking at something in normal light even if there is no illumination. X-ray vision can penetrate 1 foot of stone, 1 inch of common metal, or up to 3 feet of wood or dirt. Thicker substances or a thin sheet of lead blocks the vision.

    Using this ability requires a standard action to activate, but then can be maintained with a swift action each round. This ability can be used a number of times per day equal to half of the solar avatar levels plus Con modifier. This ability can be used for a number of consecutive rounds equal to three plus con modifier.

    8th - Awesome Blow (Su):
    As a standard action, the solar avatar may choose to subtract 4 from its melee attack roll and deliver an awesome blow. If the solar avatar hits a corporeal opponent equal to or smaller than itself with an awesome blow, its opponent must succeed on a Reflex save (DC = damage dealt) or be knocked flying 10 feet in a direction of the attacking solar avatarís choice and fall prone.

    The attacking solar avatar can only push the opponent in a straight line, and the opponent canít move closer to the attacking solar avatar than the square it started in. If an obstacle prevents the completion of the opponentís move, the opponent and the obstacle each take 1d6 points of damage, and the opponent stops in the space adjacent to the obstacle.

    9th - Solar-Powered (Su):
    The Solar Avatar does not need to eat, drink or sleep to sustain himself, nor does he need air to breath. Simply standing within sunlight for a few minutes provides the Solar Avatar all the energy he needs to survive for days. The vacuum of space now has no effect on the Solar Avatar. The Solar Avatar also gains immunity to poisons and non-magical diseases.

    However, if the Solar Avatar is not exposed to any form of sunlight for a number of days equal to his constitution modifier, he becomes fatigued until he receives some source of sunlight. The solar avatar must eat, drink and breathe again until he recharges in the sunlight. Should he continue to fail at receiving sunlight for a number of days equal to twice his constitution modifier, he becomes exhausted and loses his supernatural powers until he spends at least one minute within sunlight.

    11th - Accelerated Flight (Perfect) (Su):
    The Solar Avatar gains the ability to fly with perfect maneuverability at a speed of 200 ft., plus the bonus from his Enhanced Speed ability (See above).

    13th - Solar Regeneration (Su):
    While in direct sunlight or another similar effect, the Solar Avatar instead gains Regeneration 5, instead of fast healing.

    15th - Arctic Breath (Su):
    As a full round action, the Solar Avatar can exhale a freezing gale of frost in one of two shapes: a 60 ft. cone or a 120 ft. line. This deals 10d6 cold damage (no save) and possibility paralyzing the foe in a layer of frost if those caught within the gale fail a reflex save (DC 15 + Solar Avatarís Con modifier). If they fail, they are paralyzed for 1d4+1 rounds and is encased in ice (Hardness 5; HP 10; Brake DC 20). This ability can be used a number of times per day equal to one plus the Solar Avatarís Con modifier.

    In addition, This ability also snuffs out all non-magical fires within the radius of effect.

    17th - Mach Flight (Perfect) (Su):
    The Solar Avatar gains the ability to fly with perfect maneuverability at a speed of 300 ft., plus the bonus from his Enhanced Speed ability (See above). If the Solar Avatar spends a "run action" while flying in a straight line, the next round his fly speed is multiplied by x10 (in addition to the x5 running bonus), as long as he continues moving at full speed in a straight line.

    20th - Avatar of the Stars (Ex):
    The Solar Avatar gains a permanent +4 bonus to Constitution and Intelligence. He also becomes effectively immortal, ceasing to age further. The Solar Avatar loses any age penalties he currently possesses. Mental ability bonuses still apply and are still gained. The Solar Avatarís Heatvision and arctic breath abilities can now be used at will. A Solar Avatar who has died of wounds can be revived by exposing his body to sunlight for at least a day.

    40th Heatvision 15d6, Physique +40 +100 ft 40/---

    Living Solar Battery
    At 21st level, the length of time the Solar Avatar can go without sunlight is doubled.

    Action Before Thought
    At 22nd level, When a spell or other attack strikes the Solar Avatar, the Solar Avatar moves a split second before he's are even aware of the threat. The Solar Avatar's mind, rather than his raw reflexes, dictates his defenses. You can use this ability any time the Solar Avatar would be required to make a Reflex save. Roll a Concentration check instead of the Reflex save and use the result of that check to determine the saveís success. You must use this ability before you roll the Reflex save. A result of a natural 1 on the Solar Avatar's Concentration check is not an automatic failure.

    Always a Way
    At 23rd level, once a day a Solar Avatar can automatically remove any single effect from an adjacent ally. This includes ability damage, ability drain, energy drain, and any spell effect.

    Lost Some of it's Punch
    At 25th level, kryptonite only bypasses half of a Solar Avatar's damage reduction.

    Powerful Grappler
    At 26th level, whenever the Solar Avatar hits an opponent with either a melee weapon, natural attack or unarmed strike, the attack deals normal damage and the Solar Avatar may attempt to start a grapple as a free action without provoking an attack of opportunity. No initial touch attack is required. This functions as the improved grab special ability, except it works against opponents within one size category (or smaller) of the Solar Avatar.

    Symbol of Hope
    At 28th level, all allies within 40ft of a Solar Avatar are immune to all negative morals effects, ability damage, ability drain, and energy drain.

    Foresight
    At 29th level, a Solar Avatar is now under a constant Foresight effect.

    Justice League
    At 30th level, a Solar Avatar gains six level 15 cohorts.

    Break the Time Barrier
    At 33rd level, a Solar Avatar counts as rolling 20 for every initiative (though not a natural 20).

    Man of Tomorrow
    At 35th level, a Solar Avatar's damage reduction cannot be bypassed by any form of damage.

    Bend Time
    At 38th level, a Solar Avatar can use the Time Stop spell as a supernatural ability three times per day.

    Solar God
    At 39th level, a Solar Avatar gains Divine Rank 1 and all powers associated with it, with access to the Good and Protection domains.

    Kryptonian

    +2 Con, +2 Int, -2 Wis, -2 Cha. Kryptonians are an intelligent, warlike race of humanoids. Known for their vast knowledge, warrior traditions and endurance. They often are stubborn and quick to anger, acting without foresight in some cases.

    Medium: As Medium creatures, Kryptonians have no special bonuses or penalties due to their size.

    Kryptonian base land speed is 30 feet.

    Skills: +2 Racial Bonus on all Knowledge checks.

    Weakness to Kryptonite: kryptonite always bypasses all DR, from all sources. Exposure to different forms of kryptonite has different effects on the Kryptonian.

    Automatic Language: Common. Bonus Languages: Any (other than secret languages, such as Druidic). See the Speak Language skill.

    Favored Class: Psion or Solar Avatar (if on a planet/plane with a yellow or blue sun)

    Kryptonite
    Whenever a meteorite chunk of kryptonite is brought within 10 ft. of a Solar Avatar (with the exception of red; see below), the Solar Avatar begins suffering from the effects of the chunk.

    <|||> Blue Kryptonite:
    Whenever a shard of blue kryptonite is brought near a Solar Avatar, the Solar Avatar loses some of its abilities. Until the shard is taken away, it suppresses all supernatural abilities currently active on the Solar Avatar.

    <|||> Green Kryptonite:
    Whenever a shard of green kryptonite is brought near a Solar Avatar, the Solar Avatar falls prone and begins taking 1d4 points of constitution damage per round of exposure. If the Solar Avatar remains in direct contact with a shard, he becomes helpless and must succeed a DC 14 fort save or fall unconscious.

    <|||> Red Kryptonite:
    The weaker shards of red kryptonite cause a temporary alignment shift to Neutral Evil. This shard must either be worn, held, embedded or otherwise in constant contact with the Solar Avatar for the alignment change to manifest.

    <|||> Gold Kryptonite:
    This is stupid and should never be introduced into a game. it basically removes all class levels and abilities permanently. The worst possible thing to do as a DM is to introduce it. It works good on a threat but never as an actual obtainable item. You might just end up losing a player over the loss of the character.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency:
    Evolving Experiments are proficient with all simple weapons but with no type of armor.

    1st - Evolving Body (Ex):
    The Evolving Experimentís body adapt's extremely quickly. When damaged by an attack, its body begins to adapt to that form of attack while healing the wounds. The Evolving Experiment gains Fast Healing X, as shown on the table above. The damage is collected into a damage pool, used to fuel some of its abilities (see below). Unless stated otherwise, all abilities are supernatural abilities, usable at will as a standard action.

    1st - Damage Pool (Ex):
    The damage pool holds up to a total of one hundred points. gained one for one for each one point of damage regenerated. These points are stored for one hour per Evolving Experiment level and can be used at any time to use abilities.

    2nd - Cellular Sustenance (Ex):
    The Evolving Experiment does not need food or water to survive. The Evolving Experiment doesn't need oxygen to survive, no longer needs to breathe and can survive in an airless environment.

    2nd - Titan Strike (Ex):
    The Evolving Experiment has the ability to strike with so much force behind the blow that it deals additional damage. This bonus damage is +1d6 for each two Evolving Experiment levels you have. This damage only applies to the first successfully landed melee attack each round. Even if additional attacks are successful that round, only the first strike gains the extra damage. This damage is not multiplied on a successful critical hit. This affects all creatures equally. Creatures immune to critical hits and precision damage have no special resistance to this bonus damage.

    3rd - Physique (Ex):
    The Evolving Experimentís body has grown incredibly strong from constant evolution. You receive a permanent +2 increase to Strength.

    5th - Cellular Recovery (Ex):
    As an immediate action, the Evolving Experiment can become immune to one single type of damage that was just dealt to the Evolving Experiment (with the exception of force, untyped or divine damage). The Evolving Experiment's body adapts and grants immunity to that damage type for 24 hours. This damage immunity does not apply to the initial damage that triggered this ability. Damage dealt to it that is already immune is added directly to the damage pool. The Evolving Experiment can become immune to a number of damage types equal to its Constitution modifier.

    8th - Awesome Blow (Ex):
    As a standard action, the Evolving Experiment may choose to subtract 4 from its melee attack roll and deliver an awesome blow. If the Evolving Experiment hits a corporeal opponent equal to or smaller than itself with an awesome blow, its opponent must succeed on a Reflex save (DC = damage dealt) or be knocked flying 10 feet in a direction of the attacking Evolving Experimentís choice and fall prone. The attacking Evolving Experiment can only push the opponent in a straight line, and the opponent canít move closer to the attacking Evolving Experiment than the square it started in. If an obstacle prevents the completion of the opponentís move, the opponent and the obstacle each take 1d6 points of damage, and the opponent stops in the space adjacent to the obstacle.

    9th - Eternal Existence (Ex):
    The Evolving Experiment has evolved beyond death. After being killed, the Evolving Experiment resurrects itself from death in 1d10+4 minutes, beginning its fast healing to repair the damage dealt. The Evolved Experiment does not lose experience or a level for this form of resurrection.

    11th - Leaping Charge (Ex):
    The Evolving Experiment gains pounce, allowing it to full attack at the end of a charge.

    15th - Powerful Build (Ex):
    The physical stature of the Evolving Experiments lets them function in many ways as if they were one size category larger. Whenever an Evolving Experiment is subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for an opposed check (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), the Evolving Experiment is treated as one size larger if doing so is advantageous to him. A Evolving Experiment is also considered to be one size larger when determining whether a creatureís special attacks based on size (such as improved grab or swallow whole) can affect him. A Evolving Experiment can use weapons designed for a creature one size larger without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this special ability stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change the subjectís size category.

    20th - Evolving Abomination (Ex):
    The Evolving Experiment gains Regeneration X, instead of fast healing X, bypassed by force/untyped/divine damage only.

    The Kryptonian really needs some ability that sets it apart from other races (I mean one that isn't a weakness :P ), but I'm not very familiar with non-Superman Kryptonians so I don't have any suggestions at the moment. I know of General Zod, and... Power-Girl, I think?

    The feat looks fine to me, except for the end where you accidentally wrote that they get a bonus to persuade human blood. "Hey, you get back in that guy's veins before he starts dying! Don't make me tell you again!" :D I wouldn't mind seeing similar feats for being raised by other races, too.

    I made a base class for superheroes and mythical strong-guys a while back, by the way, though it's for Pathfinder and isn't Superman-specific.

    Actually they introduced Gold Kryptonite in Season Ten of Smallville. It had the same effect as Blue Kryptonite, only worse, in that it permanently negated a Kryptonian's powers.

    The damage reduction should be magic, not --. Superman is vulnerable to magic. This also makes him MUCH more vulnerable in D&D. Magic damage should also probably not be healable by fast healing or regeneration.

    At first level, it should have a class ability that takes away all other class abilities if not exposed to yellow sunlight for x amount of time.

    More feats for being raised by other races. (Gods help us from the orc-raised kryptonian )

    Red kryptonite should temporarily reverse the alignment of a kryptonian, not make them neutral evil. Neutral Good Clark Kent became Neutral Evil.

    You should have two prerequisites for the class. 1) Kryptonian race and 2) Raised in a yellow-sun environment.

    Also, how exactly does the fly skill work?

    edit: You do not have an invocation list.

    I'd take UMD/UPD off the class list-- why on earth (or Krypton) is it there?

    I'd put heath vision and arctic breath on breath weapon-style cooldowns, rather than x/day. It does a better job of preventing high-damage ability spamming without making players horde uses.

    Keen Hearing could be rewritten to apply to search and spot as well as listen (general super-senses).

    X-ray vision is enough of a plot-hurting ability that it should probably go later in the class.

    The strength bonus could stand to be much higher-- possibly/probably at the expense of some of the unarmed damage growth.

    Solar rejuvenation could be pushed back a bit. Conversely, solar powered could be brought forwards, given how rarely games care about that sort of thing.

    I'd like to see flight show up earlier (somewhere in the 6-12 range)-- warlocks and dragonfire adepts get it at 6, after all, and it's a pretty distinctive part of the class.

    The thing is, spells already bypass DR.

    And the thing is, this is not supposed to copy Supes (I don't think), but to emulate. I might be off on this one.

    having just finished smallville (and long since finished the comics), i have a good working knowledge of when he got each powers in comparison to each other.

    the xray vision and super hearing came shortly before heat vision, but i made the change in swapping them.

    Much of kryptonian science is based off a slightly psionic principles, such as telepathic crystals and other non-magical... well magic.

    I'd put heat vision and arctic breath on breath weapon-style cooldowns, rather than x/day. It does a better job of preventing high-damage ability spamming without making players horde uses.

    Smallville finished almost 10 seasons without flight... he had like every power but the "make up powers" power he had in the later comics.

    Still, generally not bad at all.

    where are you basing this off of? lol.

    if it was DR magic, any 5th level schmuck could beat him down with a magical sword. I dont even think DR/ magic is even good enough option as is, ignoring this whole homebrew entirely. Its almost always worthless after mid levels.

    Actually, if Kryptonian flight worked like Arcana Evolved's fly like an arrow spell ( normal flight speed unless you fly at top speed in a straight line then you start moving at 10 times normal speed), I'd suggest still getting it at 10th level.

    Still, Superman does not, generally, use technology, semi-magical or otherwise. Also, from a balance issue, these are insanely strong skills, on top of an already-strong class.

    its possible, 1d3+1 rounds? 1d4+1?
    d4+1 sounds good for a start, decreasing perhaps to d4, d4-1, and d4-2 at later levels (with a result of zero or below being "usable again this round if you get the actions somehow)

    nope, he never had super sight, beyond the xray and heat (if i remember correctly)
    Check your source material-- microscopic/telescopic vision have been mainstays of the character for decades-- all the way back to the original golden age comics, in fact. (Developed to see through the "denser atmosphere of krypton")

    Screw the plot, im superman
    Well, yes, but...I mean, it's not an unreasonable ability,

    Meh. ill think on it. any suggestions on what the damage should be? for what trade in strength?
    Give him a starting unarmed strike damage of 1d6 or 1d8, never upgrade it, and... heck, you might as well give +1 or +2 strength every level. (Might drop the BAB to medium if you do this-- Superman is competent but not top-line in terms of fighting skill) Maybe add a note that when wielding a weapon, it has to make a save of some sort or break every time you hit someone with it to prevent too much power attack abuse.

    depends on your preference as dm/players. ive played games where this is at the forefront of your mind.
    And would those gritty, survival-focused games allow a class like this?

    Smallville finished almost 10 seasons without flight... he had like every power but the "make up powers" power he had in the later comics.
    If we're going by continuity, I'd check this, which I think is the most up-to-date (non-new 52) origin story. If we're going by iconicness... why on earth would I play a Superman-type character if I couldn't fly? And if we're going for balance... the wizard's been floating around up there for almost 10 levels. The warlock and dragonfire adept for about the same amount of time.

    If you make no other changes, I strongly urge you to a reasonable level.

    On another note, what are invocations going to look like?

    Mmm. If I may... the class is looking pretty good even without them. If you want a few "meta-heat-vision" abilities, I'd say feats would be a good way to go. If you want more powers, I'd focus on more out-of-combat stuff, like carrying massive loads, cross-country speed and suchlike-- the combat aspect is quite solid already.

    Fly like an arrow...

    Basically, while the spell is in effect, you can increase your fly speed. If you spend one full round moving your full fly speed in a straight line, the next round your fly speed is multiplied by x10, as long as you continue moving at full speed in a straight line.

    200ft base fly speed, for 8000ft per round running action while flying. That's a little over three miles in 12 seconds, about 900 MPH if my calculations aren't horribly messed up. a bit slow for superman, but it may do...

    oh dear sweet baby Jesus that flight is stupid fast. Lands speed and good is the best you should get at 5, possibly 10ft and perfect.

    Generally, this class should be a monster class. It is advancing a race, and is giving set benefits.

    Otherwise it would be better to ease up on the "being superman" philosophy. Base classes should be general enough that you could make a few different characters.

    Flight is now ridiculously, stupidly fast, yeah. Also, on reflection, DR 20/-- is probably too high, even for level 20.

    DR is a easy thing to break. to low and it is useless(see babraian), to high and it is broken. The difference is a hair thin line. Like DR 2/-- is solid for level 4, but broken at level 2 were attacks are still using just base damage+stat mod, and weak at 8. The progression should probably be more stagered, Like 1 at level one, 2 at level 4, 4 at level 6, 6 at level 8, 10 at level 10 or something.

    DR 20/-- at 20 is a pain... but can be worked around.
