    Default Base Class Contest XXXI - Consumption of the Masses [3.5]

    Consumption of the Masses

    Welcome to Base Class Contest number thirty-one! Let's have fun creating some breathtaking base classes! The rules are below, as always. Make an original D&D 3.5 base class and fight for the right to keep your kneecaps!


    1. You will be creating an original base class based around a theme of consumption; anything is possible, from a glutton to a world-eater to a consumable item-based magician, so have fun with it! You may not post your entry anywhere else until after the contest is finished. If you have already posted a class under this theme, you may not enter it for this contest. You may use previous homebrew in your classes as long as no mention of the class or any part of the class was made in that homebrew. Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!

    2. Submissions are due by 23:59 Central Standard Time (USA/Canada) on January 3rd, and should be submitted in the format shown in the next post or in another way that's easy on the eyes. Feel free to play around with fonts, images, and the like; just make sure it's not hard to read.

    3. There must be a name, complete class, and fluff for both combat and role playing purposes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified.

    4. Everyone is allowed only one entry per contest.

    5. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Violators will be towed disqualified and reported.


    The chat thread is here. Feel free to discuss each other's creations, give critique, or talk about what you think of this contest, but entries (and nothing else) belong in this challenge thread.

    Om nom nom!

    Chomp chew...gulllllp!

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XXXI - Consumption of the Masses [3.5]

    Dnd player

    I must get more manual
    It is a class about consuming more manuals

    Adventures: For having a reason to read and buy more manuals

    Characteristics: It can do everything you want if you consume the right WOTC products

    Alignment: Lawful Wizard of the coast slave(No matter which alignment you write on your character sheet you are one)

    Religion: Wizard of the coast

    Background: Players becomes members of this class by spending a lot of money

    Races: Any race

    Other Classes: It depends on how you choose your powers

    Role: Variable again

    Adaptation: They might tweak some power gains and hail Wizard of the coast because they say that they can just put that in their campaign without any need of adaptation if they pay 10$.
    If you are a GM tolerating only low amounts of rudisplorking then it is better to remove the possibility to use the ninth level castings option.
    Capstone progression can be adapted to only give capstones of lower levels if you prefer.
    If you are not into early entry you can put a restriction in levels before dipping into a non base class(like no prcs dips before the fifth level)
    If you dislike shairs progressing twice their casting with each level in mystic theurge you might make the obligation to progress two different castings at each level with the theurge like prcs dips


    GAME RULE INFORMATION

    Abilities: Any
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d4 or d12

    16th Manual eater feats
    17th
    18th Manual eater feats,Lost feats
    19th
    20th Capstone Progression or Manual eater feats

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Dnd player.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies:
    None but with dips you can get Proficiencies.

    DIP:
    At each level(Except multiples of five) you can receive all the class features of the first level in one class(can be a prestige class).
    If you choose only mundane classes you have an hit dice made of d12,only favorable saves and a BBA equal to your level and an high skill progression
    If you choose "casting" classes(include binding, any class with spells, faculties, that stuff with shadows, True naming and others I forgot(Not incarnum for me it is not casting)) you have an hit dice of d4, will as a good save and others saves are bad and you have a BBA equal to your level/2 and a low skill progression.
    If you choose a prestige class progressing a casting without having any casting in the first place you can progress the casting of any base class or PRC who gives one(so if you start by shadowcraft mage you can progress binding or trapsmith if you want) but from an initial caster level of 1 and any caster class feature is applied to any casting.
    Dips into prcs can also progress any casting you want when they give you the option to progress castings(So for example a dip into mystic theurge progress two of your castings of 1 or progress one casting of two).
    You can dip multiple times in the same class and in this case you get the class features of the Nth level when dipping for the Nth time.

    Capstone Progression:
    At level 1 you gain the class features another chosen class gains at the fifth level.
    At level 5 you gain the class features another chosen class gains at the tenth level.
    at level 10 you gain the class features another chosen class gains at the fifth level.
    At level 15 you gain the class features another chosen class gains at the tenth level.
    At level 20 you gain the class features another chosen class gains at level 20.
    Of course it is adapted to the powers you want so for example if you have psion casting and get the capstone power of incantatrix it can apply to metapsi on faculties instead of applying to metamagics on spells.
    You can not choose multiple classes from the same manual for the capstone progression nor the same class multiples times even if it is in different manuals.

    Ninth level castings:
    You can choose to have Ninth level castings instead of the capstone progression.
    At level 1 you can access to everything in your casting up ninth level stuff at level 1 but only one spell/mystery/utterance/faculty of each level(you can choose any of them) and you can cast only one of those per day(from your list) this in addition from what you get from dips.
    at level 9 if you are a caster you can access to everything in your casting up ninth level stuff for all your powers in a prepared fashion(at the morning for each slot you choose a spell which you will be able to cast with this slot) With slots as 4/4/4/4/4/4/4/3/2/1(with bonus spell slots) or you get power points (as many power points as a psion of level 9 have psi points) for using 5 different powers but once you use one you fix it and can use it other times but you can not change it for the day(so the morning you start with five blank powers and when you cast a fireball you suddenly have four slots and one slot fixed to fireball that you can not use for other things)
    At level 15 you get the slots 6/6/6/6/6/6/6/6/6/6(with bonus spell slots)for casting spontaneously any power.(in addition to all the other stuff you got from ninth level castings)
    (All of this is approximately stuff you could get from dip progression)

    Manual eater feats:
    You can choose to get one feat per two levels instead of the capstone progression.
    You can not pick up more than one feat from one given manual.


    Lost feats:
    Every six levels you loose one feat you would have got from the normal feat progression.
    This is because of how much time consuming reading manuals and taking dips into prcs without using feats is.

    The Potion Maker

    Magic is always better in a bottle.

    Potion makers do not cast spells normally, but instead create potions to cast them for them.

    Adventures: Potion makers adventure for fame, fortune, rare ingredients, and the chance to try out their latest potions!

    Characteristics: Potion makers can create potions of spells normally beyond the domain of a potion, allowing them to wreak havoc with their concoctions. They make an adequate replacement for a wizard or cleric.

    Alignment: Any. While evil potion makers may choose to make poisons, good ones may make healing potions, lawful ones make protective ones and chaotic ones make explosives, this is not set in stone and potion makers should be encouraged to use all of the potions at their disposal.

    Religion: Potion makers may worship deities of drink or magic.

    Background: Potions are widely required for on-the-go magic. A potion maker may start off as a simple salesman of healing potions, brought to this trade out of their own or others' necessity. Alternatively, poisons are often used by criminal gangs.

    Races: Any. From an orc voodoo shaman to an elf assassin, any image of a potion maker may suit you.

    Other Classes: Potion makers are often treated as dedicated healers, a position which they nigh-invariably loathe (and would rather be lobbing bombs at things). They see other classes as new ways to test their potions, or simply as people - after all, such a diverse class can't help but respect practically all other traditions.

    Role: Potion makers can be used to empower other classes with whom they adventure, or to get in on the action themselves. Or throw bombs. Anyone for bombs?

    Adaptation: Potion makers are almost ubiquitous. They appear anywhere that potions appear, and even in a world without potions, they could simply be privy to an ability that no others have.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Potion makers have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Intelligence is the most important ability score for a potion maker.
    Alignment: Any
    Hit Die: d6
    Starting Age: As bard.
    Starting Gold: As sorcerer.

    Class Skills
    The potion maker's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int) Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Heal (Wis), Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Profession (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), and Spellcraft (Int).

    Skill Points at First Level: (2 + Int modifier) x 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the potion maker.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Potion makers are proficient with all simple weapons, plus the hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, and short sword. They are proficient with light armour but not with shields; because the potion maker doesn't actually cast spells, they don't have a chance to fail to cast spells while wearing armour.

    Brew Potion
    Potion makers get the Brew Potion feat as a bonus feat at first level, and can use that feat, even if they don't meet the prerequisites.

    Potion Making (Ex)
    Potion makers are not spellcasters and do not cast spells, but they have a caster level and can create items and qualify for feats and prestige classes as though they did have spells and were arcane spellcasters, and prestige classes will advance their potion making. With the correct feats, they can create items other than potions the same way that a spellcaster does. Potions created by a potion maker are considered arcane.

    A potion maker can spend the hour after resting to prepare potions, much as other casters may prepare spells. In this time, she may brew one potion for each spell given on Table: The Potion Maker (plus additional potions for having a high intelligence modifier), completely without regard for the usual gold, experience or time cost of doing so, although potions made in this way become useless after 24 hours. Similarly, if he chooses not to brew all of their potions at this time, it can brew a single potion later in the day by expending a spell slot of the requisite level. If they have more than one spellcasting class, he can only brew potions in this way using her potion maker spell slots. In order to make a potion using spell slots from another class, it must use the normal rules for creating potions and can only create potions out of spells which would normally be eligible for creating potions.

    Potion makers can make potions out of spells which would not normally be eligible for being made into a potion, such as those of greater than 3rd level or those with targets which are not normally resolvable as potions. These are resolved in the following way:

    Spells that target you: The target is the creature who drinks the potion, and it affects them as though they were you. (This should, incidentally, be possible anyway, as the drinker is considered the caster, but is included here for clarity). Examples: Divine Power, Transformation
    Spells that affect an area centred on a point: You throw the potion as though it were a ranged splash weapon, but apart from that the usual effects of the spell apply from the point struck. Examples: Fireball, Flame Strike
    Spells that affect a cone: You throw the potion as though it were a ranged splash weapon, but the effect is resolved as though you had walked onto the location that the potion hit, and cast the spell in the same direction as the movement. Examples: Burning Hands, Cone of Cold
    Spells that affect a line: You throw the potion as though it were a ranged splash weapon, but the effect occurs on every square between you and the location hit, ignoring the normal range. (If you drop a potion of Lightning Bolt off a cliff, you may achieve many tens of times the 60 ft range, much good may it do you). Examples: Lightning Bolt, Wall of Fire
    Spells that create things: You throw the potion as though it were a ranged splash weapon, and the created object appears where it hits. Examples: Create Water, Dancing Lights

    When using a single-target spell, a potion maker can throw a potion at the target using the target's touch AC (Or flat-footed touch AC for an ally, who makes no attempt to dodge the spell) but it may hit another creature or object and if the potion maker misses completely, the spell is wasted. The impact of the potion and the breaking of glass invariably deals negligible damage, no matter how painful it might be!

    On the other hand, drinking a spell that affects an area centred on a point, a cone or a line, or that creates things, has no effect.

    Other spells which are not resolved in any of these ways have their own explanations. The save DC for a potion maker's potions is 10, plus the spell's level, plus the potion maker's intelligence modifier. Potion makers use the Potion Maker Spell List to determine what kinds of potions they can make.

    Long Hurl (Ex)
    At the levels given on Table: The Potion Maker, a potion maker treats the range increment of ranged splash weapons to be longer by the amount given on the table.

    For Dispel Magic and Greater Dispel Magic you need to decide whether you're using a targeted or area dispel when you brew the potion.
    For Explosive Runes, you need to choose a message when you brew the potion if you want to throw it. You can choose the message on application if you do that. If you don't choose a message, the spell produces so many random glyphs and swirls.
    For Wall of Fire, choose which side radiates heat when you throw it.
    For Antilife Shell, the spell is centred on the imbiber or creature struck.
    For Polymorph Any Object, you must choose the result of the spell when you make it, but can apply it to any object or creature and thereby determine its duration.
    For Meteor Swarm, all the meteors land in the same place.

    Ikari is interested in trading reagents, and tends to the injured at low prices (Spellcasting prices instead of potion prices). If engaged in combat, Ikari uses Fog Cloud to avoid combat and Shocking Grasp to defeat enemies rapidly, preferring to use Fireball to block off a path rather than offensively.

    Cannibal


    "I ate his liver with some fava beans and a nice Chianti". Lothar, the Cannibal Gourmet

    A Cannibal is a carnivorous being that loves the taste of the meat of members of his own race.

    Adventures: Cannibals usually go out on adventure driven by the same aims of other people: money, fame, knowledge, mystery, etc.
    In addition, most cannibal start travelling to far realms to taste their "exotic flavours", discovering unknown races and subraces and finding out what they taste like.

    Characteristics: The primary ability of a Cannibal is clearly the ability of eating members of his own type and kind. By doing this the Cannibals absorb the powers of their victims becoming more skilled or even proficient with arcane arts that are normally denied. The cannibal can also consume the victim body to steal its aspect, its memories or its identity as a whole. In their development, Cannibals are called to choose one of two paths becoming a Brutal Cannibal, bound to his bestial side, a fury that eats his enemies in the very core of the battle, or embracing the path of the Cannibal Gourmet, a sophisticated palate that likes to take his time to better taste the meat he gathers and to share it with other people.

    Alignment: Neutral evil and Chaotic Evil are the far more common aligment that you will find among cannibals: violent sociopaths, they live driven by the need to destroy and consume their kind for the sake of destruction or for the pure essence of evil. You can also easily find Lawful Evil cannibals: subtle and manipulative, they usually treat cannibalism as a mean of achieving something bigger. Although rare, there exists True Neutral cannibals (usually linked to nature, they live their cannibalism as part of being "animals") or Lawful Neutral (that practice cannibalism because its part of some kind of - often tribal – rule).

    Religion: Being really mundane people, cannibals are not usually interested in religion. Some can have some kind of spiritual or totemistic belief that they make up to justify their actions. Those cannibals that feel the urge to worship a superior entity usually direct their prayer to gods of destruction and hunger. Some cannibals that multiclass with cleric of divine soul can also worship nature's god of hunt, but in this case they often take the feat "Heretic of the faith" (Power of Fearun) to better practice cannibalism without incurring in their patron's wrath.

    Background: No one teaches you how to become a cannibal. The motivation that drives people to such an extreme experience are various and can involve social or religious rules, the access of some twisted knowledge or even a deep psycological trauma.
    However all cannibals seem to share a common, distinguishing moment in their backgrounds: the first time they taste the flesh of one of their own kind. It may be by accident or it may happen willingly but this moment is always branded in the cannibal's mind as some sort of rite of passage, moment of awakening or personal maturation.

    Races: While cannibal's are far more common among savage races (orcs, ogres, goblinoids of all kinds) or among those with animal traits (raptorans, shifters) they can also spring out from common races.

    Other Classes: A Cannibal usually thinks that members of other classes are... really tasty! Usually a Cannibal is social (or hungry) enough to get along well with anyone while he is waiting for the right moment to have lunch.
    The only group of people that gives him problems are members of classes with a strict code of conduct (paladins, clerics, monks) that would annoy him (or even try to kill him) because eating people is "wrong".

    Role: A cannibal is a good "5th member" for a party: his mild ability in battle, the capability of gaining bonuses in all skills and of attaining various feats and abilities from other races and classes makes him a excellent sidekick. In addition a Brutal Cannibal can prove himself more useful in battle while the Cannibal Gourmet is better at meeting the needs of the party. At last, a Cannibal that focuses on his social skills and in using his Consume Aspect, Consume Memory and Consume Knowledge abilities is really a good infiltrator.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Cannibal's have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Since the abilities of a Cannibal require him to eat dead enemies high physical attributes are recommended: they will help him staying alive in battle. If you wish to play the "social predator" type of cannibal" (see Hannibal Lecter) you may need high mental stats to maximize the social skills you use to lure your preys into your traps.
    Alignment: Any non good.
    Hit Die: d10
    Starting Age: As barbarian
    Starting Gold: As barbarian

    Class Skills
    The Cannibal's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Bluff (Cha), Craft (any) (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Gather information (Int), Hide (Dex), Move silently (Dex), Profession (any) (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Search (Int), Survival (Wis), Use rope (Dex). A cannibal also has as class skill the Knowledge (Int) skill that gives information on creatures of his own kind: local for humanoid cannibals, nature for giant cannibals, arcana for dragon cannibals, etc.

    Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4
    Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 4 + Int modifier

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Cannibal is proficient with light armors, with simple weapons and with kukris and short swords (that he uses as giant cooking knives)

    Powerful Teeth (Ex). The extensive use of his mouth makes the teeth of a cannibal really hard and sharp, ideal for dealing damage. A Cannibal gains a bite attack that can be used as primary attack if he is not using any weapon, or as secondary attack if he is also using a weapon. The bite attack deals 1d4 point of damage + half the cannibal's Strenght modifier.
    If the cannibal already possess a bite attack it instead gains Improved Natural Attack (Bite) as bonus feat, even if it does not meet the other prerequisites.

    Cannibalize (Su). The distinguishing ability of a cannibal is the ability of eating his enemies, and in particular those who belong to his same type and race.
    At 1st level, using a full-round action that provokes attacks of oppurtunity, a cannibal can use his mouth or a slashing weapon to rip of a bit of flesh from a dead enemy that shares his own type that must have died in an hour or less and to eat it. A cannibal can use cannibalize also on dying, disabled or otherwise helpless creatures: in this case he must kill the target with a coup the grace as part of the same full-round action used for cannibalize. If the victim survives the coup the grace it cannot be cannibalized.
    Cannibalize heals the cannibal of a number of hit points equal to the HDs of the cannibalized enemy, and provides and extra benefit based on the part of the body eaten, as shown below. Once snatched, the body part must be consumed within 1 minute or it becomes useless. A single creature cannot be cannibalized more than once.
    If the extra benefit provides a bonus, it is equal to the number shown in the table (Cannibalize Bonus) if the cannibal eats a creature of his own type or equal to twice that number if the creature is also of his same race. For example a 1st level elf cannibal gains a +1 cannibalizing any humanoid or a +2 cannibalizing an humanoid (elf). Every effect lasts one minute per Cannibal level or until discharged.

    Spoiler: Body parts
    Show
    Brain: The cannibal eats a portion of the creature's brain gaining some of his Intelligence. He gains an enhancement bonus to every Intelligence-based skill check. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can take 20 on a single Knowledge check, even if the rules usually don't allow it. Doing this is an immediate action and discharges the effect.

    Face: Eating the face of the target allows the Cannibal to consume its beauty and ability to communicate. He gains an enhancement bonus to every Charisma-based skill check. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can use a suggestion effect on a creature of the same race of the cannibalized creature. The DC to resist this mind-affecting effect is 10+half Cannibal's level+his Charisma modifier. Doing this is a swift action and discharges the effect.

    Muscles: Feasting on the biggest and strongest muscles of his victim (pectorals, biceps, triceps, quadriceps), the cannibal steal a fragment of his strenght. He gains an enhancement bonus to every Strenght-based skill check and Grapple checks. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can make a special smite attack in melee adding the Cannibalize Bonus to the attack roll and the cannibalized creature's HDs as damage bonus. Doing this is a standard action and discharges the effect.

    Hand/Foot: Snatching and gnawing an hand or a foot of the cannibalized creature the cannibal gains an enhancement bonus to every Dexterity-based skill check. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can add the same bonus as a dodge bonus to AC and Reflex saves for 1 round. Doing this is an immediate action and discharges the effect.

    Liver/Kidney: Tearing apart the victim's body and consuming its inner organs, the cannibal grants himself some of its resilience. He gains an enhancement bonus to every Constitution-based skill checks and Fortitude saves. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can grant himself a boost of vitality gaining a number of temporary hit points equal to twice the cannibalized creature's HDs. Doing this is a swift action and discharges the effect (the extra HPs last until consumed).

    Heart: The cannibal eats the most important part of his victim body, biting both its flesh and its very essence. He gains an enhancement bonus to every Wisdom-based skill check. In addition, once during the duration of this effect, he can add the same bonus as an insight bonus on Will Saves and on saves against death effects for 1 round. Doing this is an immediate action and discharges the effect.


    Cannibal's Endurance (Ex): At 2nd level the habit of eating raw flesh (and the act of cannibalizing itself) renders the cannibal's body more resilient against toxins that pass through the digestive system. He gains a +1 bonus on saves made against ingested poison, drugs and other harmful alchemical or magical objects that need to be eaten of drunk to have effect. This bonus is raised by +1 at 5th level and at every three level thereafter (+3 at 8th, +4 at 11th, etc.).

    Consume Aspect (Sp). At 3rd level the Cannibal gains the ability to steal the appearence of a creature that he cannibalizes. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose to forgo all the usual benefits (both the healing and the bonuses) and be instead affected by an Alter self effect that gives him the appearence of the cannibalized creature for up to 1 hour per your Cannibal levels. He can revert to his original form any time he wants using a move action but he cannot take again that appearence later on.

    Cannibal Way I (Ex or Su). At 4th level a Cannibal can choose to embrace one of the two cannibal ways. He can choose between the "Brutal Cannibal" Way or the "Cannibal Gourmet" way.

    If he chooses to become a Brutal Cannibal he gains the ability to enter a blood-thirsty berserker rage every time he tastes the blood of his own kind. When a Primal Cannibal use his "cannibalize" ability, he gains the usual bonuses but also flyes in a state of fury that works like Frenzied Berserker's Frenzy ability (see Complete Warrior), with the following exceptions.
    First, the Primal Cannibal is driven toward eating more flesh and tasting more blood, so the extra attack provided by the frenzy must be made using his bite attack. Second, the fury last only 3 rounds but whenever the Primal Cannibal manages to hit an enemy of his same type with his bite attack, dealing damage and tasting his blood, he gains an extra round of fury. This is an extraordinary ability.

    If he chooses instead to become a Cannibal Gourmet he gains the ability to preserve the body parts he snatched for a later use. When he uses Cannibalize on an enemy he can choose, as part of the same full-round action, to cast preserve organ on the snatched part instead of eating it. He can later use a move action to eat the body part, gaining regular benefits (or the one offered by othe class abilities, like Consume Aspect) as if it was freshli snatched. The Cannibal must declare which part he snatches and preserves (brain, face, heart and so on). This is a supernatural ability. A cannibal can have a number of preserved body parts up to his own level in this class at a time: should he preserve more than that number, the ones that were preserved first rot instantly and become unusable.

    Consume Skill (Su). At 6th level the Cannibal gains the ability to draw from the victim the best of its skill. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can choose instead a single skill that would be affected by that body part (Brain = any one knowledge, search or appraise, Heart = heal, listen or survival, and so on). For one minute per Cannibal level that skill becomes a class skill and all the ranks the Cannibal has in that skill are replaced by those of the cannibalized creature, up to the maximum allowed by the Cannibal's level. For example, Lothar, a 6th level human cannibal eats the hand of Tiesto, an human assassin 8th level assassin: knowing that Tiesto was renown for being deceitful he chooses Hide skill. Hide becomes a class skill for Lothar that replace his own ranks (only 2) with Tiesto's ranks (11 ranks). But Lothat is 6th level so he is allowed having only 9 ranks in a class skill, so two skill ranks are wasted. Skill ranks acquired in this way cannot be used to meet prerequites of feats, prestige class and so on.

    Consume Extraordinary Ability (Su). At 7th level the Cannibal gains the ability to steal from his victim some of his mundane power. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can instead choose any extraordinary ability that the victim possesses and acquire it for 1 minute per Cannibal level. He can choose any (ex) ability that the victim gained form both his race or his class but not an (ex) ability that it may have gained through other sources. The cannibal uses the (ex) ability as if used by the cannibalized creature: Lothar the 10th level cannibal that use Consume Extraordinary Ability on a 3rd level rogue gains 2d6 sneak attack damage. The cannibal also uses the original DC (if any) but if any roll or check are required he uses his own bonuses or penalties.
    Should the selected ability require a natural attack to be used (like poisons or diseases) they must be used in conjunction with the cannibal's bite attack, regardless of the natural weapon usually connected to that ability. Abilities acquired in this way cannot be used to meet prerequites of feats, prestige class and so on.
    If the ability can be used a fixed number of times per day (like barbarian's rage), the cannibal can use it only once.

    Consume feat (Su). At 9th level the Cannibal learns how to draw even more power from the victim, stealing more of his knowledge and know-how. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can instead choose any feat or skill trick that the victim possesses and acquire it for 1 minute per Cannibal level. He gains the benefits of that feat even if it doesn't meet the prerequisites, but this doesn't mean that the feat will surely prove useful. If Lothar steals a metamagic feat but he has no spellcasting ability he cannot use the feat.
    If a feat has a minimum ability score in its prerequisites (or if a skill trick requires ranks in a particular skill) the cannibal can acquire it only by eating the body part connected with that ability or skill, as shown above (Muscle = Strenght, Hand = Dexterity, Liver = Constitution, and so on). If Lothar wants to steal Combat Expertise (requirements: INT 13) he can do it only by eating the victim's brain. If the feat/skill trick as more than a single requirements (for example the feat "Dark speech" that requires INT 15 and CHA 15) it can be acquired by eating the body part linked to any one of them (Dark speech can be acquired by eating both the Brain or the Face).
    Feats and skill tricks acquired in this way cannot be used to meet prerequites of other feats, prestige class and so on.

    Cannibal Way II (Ex or Su). A 10th level Cannibal gains an extra benefit from the path he chose at 4th level.

    If he chose the Brutal Cannibal path he gains the ability to eat rotten corpses and gain full benefits form cannibalize. He is no longer affected by the "dead from one hour" restriction in the description of cannibalize and can even use cannibalize on helpless undeads of creatures of his own kind, though a cannibalized undead doesn't die after being cannibalized. A corpse that is really rotten may lack of some parts and could prevent the cannibal from choosing a particular organ.

    If the chose the Cannibal Gourmet path he gains the ability to take full advantage from a dead body. During a one minute long ritual he carefully cut away every usable part from a dead or dying creature, preserving them with his preserve organ ability. This allows the Cannibal Gourmet to cannibalize six times the same target and gain one sample of every body part listed above (one brain, one heart, one hand, one muscle, one face, on liver). This ability superedes the rule that doesn't allow to cannibalize a single creature more than once. The organs preserved in this way still count against the limit of preserved organs given in Cannibal Way I.

    Consume Memories (Su). At 12th level a Cannibal can draw a special effect when eating a victim's brain. Instead of gaining the regular extra benefits from eating that body part he gains access to every non-mechanically relevant memories of the victim for one hour per Cannibal level. These memories include the victims full background, people known, places already seen, passwords for secret places and so on: basically, its classified as a "non-mechanically relevant memory" every form of knowledge that does not derive from race class features, feats, skills and does not grant any kind of bonus or penalty or other special ability. A Cannibal cannot access to the memory of more than a creature a given time: if he uses Consume Memories while still under the effect of a previous use the oldest memories are lost forever.

    Consume Supernatural Ability (Su). At 13th level the Cannibal gains the ability to sap the supernatural forces that empower his victims. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can instead choose any supernatural ability that the victim possesses and acquire it for 1 minute per Cannibal level. He can choose any (su) ability that the victim gained form both his race or his class but not a (su) ability that it may have gained through other sources. The cannibal uses the (su) ability as if used by the cannibalized creature but if any roll is required he uses his own bonuses or penalties, if any.
    Should the selected ability require a natural attack to be used (like supernatural curses like lycanthropy) they must be used in conjunction with the cannibal's bite attack, regardless of the natural weapon usually connected to that ability. Abilities acquired in this way cannot be used to meet prerequites of feats, prestige class and so on.
    This ability can be used to acquire the ability to bound vestiges: in this case the cannibal can choose only a vestige that the victim had bound when it died. That vestige is instantly bound to the cannibal and instantly unbounds after one minute per cannibal level.
    If the ability can be used a fixed number of times per day or derives its uses from a pool (like some effects of bardic music), the cannibal can use it only once.

    Consume Spell-like Ability (Su). At 15th level the Cannibal gains the ability to devour the magic that runs into the victims. When he cannibalizes a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can instead choose any spell-like ability that the victim possesses and acquire it for 1 minute per Cannibal level. He can choose any (sp) ability that the victim gained form both his race or his class but not a (sp) ability that it may have gained through other sources. The cannibal uses the (sp) ability as if used by the cannibalized creature but if any roll is required he uses his own bonuses or penalties, if any: if Lothar steals the Eldritch Blast from a 5th level warlock he rolls the ranged attack roll with his own bonus but the blast deals only 3d6 damage.
    Abilities acquired in this way cannot be used to meet prerequites of feats, prestige class and so on.
    If the ability can be used a fixed number of times per day or derives its uses from a pool (like some effects of bardic music), the cannibal can use it only once.

    Cannibal Way III (Su or Sp). A 16th level Cannibal gains an extra benefit from the path he chose at 4th level.

    If he chose the Brutal Cannibal path, his bite attack gains the Vorpal special ability when the cannibal is in a state of fury. When a Primal Cannibal kills in this way an enemy suitable for being cannibalized he can use an immediate action to use the cannibalize special ability on it. When he does this he gains 2 extra round of fury and also gains half the usual benefit of cannibalize (he heals HPs equal to half the creature HDs and half the bonus normally provided, al rounded down). Despite the weapon being Vorpal the cannibal can choose to snatch any body part and still kill the target (in case of muscles or hand/foot the victim dies for excessive bleeding and the subsequent shock). This is a supernatural ability.
    This ability also works on undeads, except that the undead does not die after being cannibalized in this way and can continue fighting.

    If he chose the Cannibal Gourmet path he gains the ability to prepare an exquisite banquet from the body of a cannibalized enemy. Preparing such a feast requires 2 hours and a Craft (cooking) or Profession (chef) skill check (DC 10+cannibalized creature HDs).
    Each creature that eats at this feast gains all the benefits of Hero's Feast spell: in addition the Cannibal can choose to give to every creature affected one of the extra benefit of cannibalize. He cannot give the same benefit to two different affected creatures.
    A victim can provide food up to 4 creatures of the same size, 2 creatures of one size bigger or 8 creatures of one size smaller: so a cannibalized elf can provide food to 4 elves, 8 halflings or 2 ogres.
    A creature that eats at the feast can make a Sense Motive check opposed to the result of the Craft (cooking) or Profession (chef) skill check to notice that the banquet is made out of human flesh. Discovering this doesn't diminish the effect of this ability but may cause a creature to refuse to eat the "food". This is a spell-like ability and has a caster level equal to the cannibal level.

    Consume Magic (Su). Almost at the peak of his power the cannibal learns how to draw from its victims' flesh the most powerful of their abilities. When he cannibalize a creature he can choose not to gain the usual extra benefit connected with the chosen body part: he can instead choose any prepared or known spell, psionic power, maneuver, stance, utterance or invocation that the victim had and gain the ability to use it once. The cannibal uses that ability as if it were used by the victim itself (same DC, same caster/manifester/initiator level) but if any roll is required he uses his own bonuses or penalties, if any. In case of utteances the cannibal may use his own Truespeak bonus (if any) or the one of the victim, whichever is higher.
    If the stolen ability is not used within one minute per cannibal level it fades into nothingness and lost.
    A cannibal can use this ability also to acquire soulmelds: when he does this the selected soulmeld instantly shapes, and is automatically unshaped after one minute per cannibal level. If the soulmeld is acquired by eating a body part linked to one of the chackras to which that particular soulmeld can be bound, then the soulmeld is shaped and bound to that chackra. If this would requires the cannibal to invest essentia in that soulmeld he is considered as having invested in that soulmeld a number of essentia points equal to his Cannibalize Bonus.
    Body parts and Chackras are linked as follow.

    Spoiler
    Show
    Brain: Crown Chackra, Soul Chackra.

    Face: Brow Chackra, Throat Chackra.

    Muscles: Arms Chackra, Shoulder Chackra.

    Hand/Foot: Hands Chackra, Feet Chackra.

    Liver/Kidney: Waist Chackra.

    Heart: Heart Chackra, Totem Chackra.


    If a cannibal uses Consume Magic to gain a second spell/power/utterance/etc. before having used the one previously acquired the older ability fades and is lost.

    Consume Identity (Sp). At last, a 19th level Cannibal learns how to devour and absorb all of the victim's essence, gaining the ability of becoming a perfect copy of the victim itself. Once a day, when he uses cannibalize, he can choose not to gain the usual benefits and become instead a clone of the victim. The cannibal loses his race, classes, skill ranks, feats and abilities and replaces it with the race, classes, skill ranks, feats and abilities that the victim had just before dying. To be clear, the Cannibal loses all of himself except for his consciousness and memories, but also shares the victim's memories as if he had also used the Consume Memories ability.
    The cannibal can remain in this form for one day per cannibal level, or can willingly revert the transformation with a standard action.
    When the trasformation ends the cannibal gains back his race, classes, skill ranks, feats and abilities but is dazed for one round and confused for one minute.
    Should the cannibal die, he would instantly revert to his natural form.

    Big Game Hunter


    Photo c1908, credit to Chris Watt

    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
    --Ernest Hemingway

    A big game hunter lives to stalk, kill, and eat the most dangerous beasts the world (and perhaps the planes as well) has to offer.

    Adventures: Big game hunters are characterized by approaching adventure as a hobby.

    Characteristics: Big game hunters are gentleman adventurers, who specialize in long-range killing. They also excel at finding and tracking their prey, and wilderness survival.

    Alignment: Big game hunters may be any alignment, but as dispassionate killing is their main skill set, good ones are rare.

    Religion: Big game hunters may worship a god of hunting, or most often, none at all. Rarely, they worship nature gods or nature itself.

    Background: Big game hunters are often aged aristocrats who hunt as a hobby. Less well-off ones are rare, and may call themselves "poachers."

    Races: Humans are by far the most likely race to produce idle rich enthusiasts of sport hunting. Elves have all the requisite skills and abilities, but their personalities are so opposed to this behavior that there has never been one, though it is not technically impossible. Other races producing big game hunters is all but unheard of.

    Other Classes: Big game hunters can be very useful in stealth, scouting, or assassination situations. However, they clash in motivation with most other classes, and rangers find them especially abhorrent for the same reasons elves do, and their skills overlap a great deal, adding to their rivalry.

    Role: Scouting, tracking, and long-range killing.

    Adaptation: A big game hunter could be refluffed as a military sniper, a poacher, a professional hunter, or a replacement for the scout class if an aristocratic hunting enthusiast makes no sense in a given campaign.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    BIG GAME HUNTERS have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Dexterity is by far the most important stat for a big game hunter. Constitution makes them a little more durable, but their hit dice is not poor and they can stay out of combat for the most part. Strength can help them get a little more damage with a composite bow, Intelligence helps with their skills, and charisma has very little to do with their role, but their aristocratic background gives them the opportunity to learn diplomacy if they choose. Wisdom helps mediate their poor will saves.
    Alignment: Any.
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As Wizard.
    Starting Gold: 10d4x10 gp.

    Class Skills
    The BIG GAME HUNTER's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Wis), Climb (Str), Craft (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Heal (Wis), Hide (Dex), Jump (Str), Knowledge (dungeoneering) (Int), Knowledge (geography) (Int), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Knowledge (nobility and royalty)(Int), Listen (Wis), Move Silently (Dex), Profession (Wis), Ride (Dex), Search (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Swim (Str), and Use Rope (Dex)

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the BIG GAME HUNTER.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Big game hunters are proficient with light armor, bucklers, simple weapons, shortbows, longbows, composite shortbows, composite longbows, heavy crossbows, and light crossbows.

    Ranged Sneak Attack: Ranged sneak attack is identical to a rogue's sneak attack ability, except it does not function with melee attacks or ranged attacks made against adjacent opponents. Like sneak attack, it must be made within 30' to be effective, but as the big game hunter advances in level, he adds to the distance at which he can perform ranged sneak attacks.

    Consume Prey: The big game hunter absorbs power called animus by consuming the flesh of enemies he kills, and uses it to fuel special abilities called hunter's tricks. He only needs to consume a single bite (traditionally the heart); it's mostly a symbolic gesture. This requires a full-round action which provokes attacks of opportunity and a fortitude save based on the creature type and hit dice of the slain enemy. The big game hunter must have killed the creature himself, or he receives no benefit. When he successfully uses consume prey, the big game hunter receives 5 temporary hit points, and one animus point per hit dice of the consumed prey, however he can only hold one animus point per level of big game hunter. He can still gain temporary hit points when his animus pool is full. Temporary hit points gained this way fade at a rate of 1 per hour. If the big game hunter fails the fortitude save provoked by consuming his prey, he is sickened for one round per hit dice of the foe he attempted to consume, and receives no animus points or temporary hit points. Animus points are not gained in any way except by consuming prey, and they are not lost in any way except by being used.

    Adept Sniper: Normally, hiding after making a ranged attack incurs a -20 penalty. A big game hunter reduces this penalty by 1 per level of big game hunter.

    Hunter's Trick: Wherever it says "Hunter's Trick" on the class table, the big game hunter gains a special ability called a Hunter's Trick, chosen from the list at the end of the class description. When it says Hunter's Trick 1, the big game hunter may choose a single trick from the level 1 list. Where it says Hunter's Trick 2, he may choose either a single trick from the level 2 list, or two tricks from the level 1 list. When it says Hunter's Trick 3, he may choose 1, 2, or 3 tricks whose levels add up to 3, and so on. A big game hunter can spend his entire store of Animus points in one round if he wishes.

    Expert Marksman: A big game hunter of second level or higher adds double his dexterity bonus to ranged attacks, but the bonus from expert marksman can not exceed his levels of big game hunter (i.e. if his dexterity is 18 and he is level 2, he adds +4 as normal, then another +2 from expert marksman. At 4th level, he will add +4 as normal, and another +4 from expert marksman).

    Sniping:
    The big game hunter adds 5 feet to the range he can use ranged sneak attack at second level, and another 5 feet every even level. If he has another effect which multiplies or otherwise extends the range at which he can sneak attack, add the extra distance from sniping afterwards. Sniping only affects the distance the big game hunter can use ranged sneak attack; normal sneak attack is still subject to the normal distance limitations.

    Track:
    At second level, the big game hunter gains Track as a bonus feat.

    Woodland Stride: Starting at fourth level, a big game hunter may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at his normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that are enchanted or magically manipulated to impede motion still affect him.

    Swift Tracker:
    Beginning at sixth level, a big game hunter can move at his normal speed while following tracks without taking the normal -5 penalty. He takes only a -10 penalty (instead of the normal -20) when moving at up to twice normal speed while tracking.

    One Shot One Kill: At eighth level, a big game hunter can choose to make a single attack as a full-round action when he uses ranged sneak attack. If his attack hits, roll damage as normal (including ranged sneak attack damage). Then, roll ranged sneak attack damage again. If this number is higher than the target's remaining hit point total, the target dies instantly. If it is less than the target's current hit points, nothing happens.

    Trackless Step: Starting at tenth level, a big game hunter leaves no trail in natural surroundings and cannot be tracked. He may choose to leave a trail if so desired.

    Camouflage: A big game hunter of twelfth level or higher can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.

    Expert Sharpshooter: At fourteenth level, the big game hunter's bonus from Expert Marksman increases to 1.5x his dexterity bonus, rounded down. The total bonus he can receive is still limited by his levels in big game hunter.

    Reaper's Shot: At sixteenth level, the big game hunter's One Shot One Kill ability upgrades to the Reaper's Shot. The Reaper's Shot works just like One Shot One Kill, but adds double the big game hunter's ranged sneak attack damage to the initial damage.

    Hide in Plain Sight:
    While in any sort of natural terrain, a big game hunter of eighteenth level or higher can use the Hide skill even while being observed.

    Baleful Shot: At twentieth level, whenever a big game hunter modifies a ranged attack with any type of shot augment, that attack overcomes all hardness and damage reduction, including epic and -.

    BLOOD ACOLYTE

    ”I was not born with the power of a dragon’s heritage, nor a wizard’s talent. I had but one thing of value. My life. And I have made that into power to rival those born with far more.”

    A Blood Acolyte is a practitioner of an early and simpler form of magic. A Blood Acolyte is a mage who manipulates the energy released by the force of life within themselves and, in more limited fashion, others. Drawn initially from the teachings of spirits of nature, good, and evil Blood Acolytes can be divided primarily into three groups depending upon which school of teaching they follow most closely. Theirs is a power and a magic which consumes their own life and the lifeforce held in the blood of others to power itself.

    Adventures: Whether it’s greedy lust for treasure, or altruistic heroism a Blood Acolyte may have many reasons to adventure. Many of their reasons are similar to those of wizards, the quest for new knowledge, or ancient but lost, and new magic. However there are additional factors not present in a wizard’s motivation. Depending upon their path of study a Blood Acolyte may or may not have connections to entities beyond mortal men. Those that follow the Path Infernal are often targeted for fiendish recruitment, their devotion to a corrupt art meaning that they are usually malleable to fiendish agendas for the right price. Those that follow the Shaman’s Path are even more closely tied with the spirits that first taught the art, learning to communicate with the spirits of the natural world, and to barter with them; these blood shamans are close in ways to druids, often adventuring on quests to preserve the natural world, though many are less altruistic and zealous about it than their druidic kin. In addition to these possible allegiances there is a stigma associated with the sanguine arts that is not attached to arcane magic. While their healing abilities can earn them some friends, it is far from enough to overcome the associations born from the prevalence of the Path Infernal and many Blood Acolytes find acceptance another reason for their adventuring.

    Characteristics: A Blood Acolyte wields sanguine magic. This art is similar in many ways to arcane magic with many of the same strengths and weaknesses. It lacks in the fields of Conjuration, Illusion, and Transmutation, and almost wholly in offensive Evocation, but it is powerful in Divination, Necromancy, Abjuration, and Enchantment. In ways it melds arcane and divine, as Blood Acolytes have access to many of the spells to shape the natural world as druids, capable of controlling wind and water, as well as plants and beasts, and much of a cleric’s healing capabilities. They lack, however, the ability to turn themselves into a battle beast, save through limited transmutation, that a cleric or druid possesses. Their magic is in many ways freer than a sorcerer’s or a cleric’s, however, as they can cast more high level spells each day, however these spells come at a price and in practical terms they have lessened endurance compared to such mages as they will find battle growing ever more dangerous to their battle wracked life force as their casting drains directly from it. While the immediate cost of this drain is a danger to the mage in battle, the long term cost of over use can leave many Blood Acolytes old before their time.

    Alignment: A blood acolyte can be any alignment, but those who follow the Path Infernal must be prepared to sell themselves forever to the darkness. The other two paths bear no such restrictions, although they both tend to attract certain types. The Shaman’s Path is the path of nature and those most in tune with the natural world are most often drawn to it. As such blood acolytes who follow that path tend towards Neutrality in at least some way, and to be softer in the others than those who follow other paths. The Caelestis Via attracts primarily those blood acolytes with a more altruistic bend to their nature as its arts are most useful in the act of self-sacrifice and helping others, however even that path can hold those with the blackest of hearts.

    Religion: Blood acolytes vary wildly in religion. The Shaman’s Path has religious ties in its ritual, pushing the practitioners towards worship of, or at least respect for, the gods and greater spirits of nature. The other paths are less restrictive as they do not imply a personal connection with the patrons which originally taught them. All blood acolytes have a tendency towards the worship of gods of magic and life or death, as they know the power and value of both things. Good aligned blood acolytes will often worship gods of healing if not those of magic, while evil aligned blood acolytes are more attracted to deities of death, undeath, and the blackest arts such as Nerull, Wee Jas, and Vecna.

    Background: Many blood acolytes are those who would have been wizards had they the talent for learning the complicated art, but lacking it turned to other lesser known and older magical arts. Some places the traditions live on more strongly, tribes where blood shamans speak with the spirits of the world to guide the tribe, cities where practitioners of the Caelestis Via teach it as a holy art gifted to men by the celestials, and realms steeped in ancient evil. Many practitioners of the Path Infernal learned it not from mortal teachers but from imps and quasits who offer to teach the art to those hungry for power. It provides the mortal with an easy route to power once they have learned the basics of the art, while ensuring that they will lead themselves into deeper and deeper corruption until their soul is wholly forfeit.

    Races: Out of the common races gnomes may make the best blood acolytes, healthy and long lived with magical talent as well. However it is dwarves, humans, and the half-breeds of man which are most likely to become blood acolytes. Dwarven blood acolytes typically follow the Caelestis Via or Shaman’s Path, relying primarily on spells to bolster their allies over those that directly bring down foes. Human blood acolytes, called fireflies due to their short lifespans and tendency to throw around more magic than elven, gnomish, or even dwarven blood acolytes making true the saying about the candle that burns brightest.
    Blood acolytes are perhaps more common among the “monstrous” humanoids, at least compared to among the common races. Orcs, dumb, foolish, and brutish, which have trouble with other forms of magic will often embrace sanguine magic for the opportunity to turn their physical endurance into magical power to get one over on their foes. Goblins lacking academies to teach the arduous arts of wizardry, and the human penchant for attracting the romance of supernatural beings and thus the tendency to sorcerous bloodlines also turn to their fiendish patrons for instructions in this simpler form of magic. Giants as well still practice this more primitive form of magic, turning their powerful bodies into fuel for their mystical might.

    Other Classes: Blood acolytes find their relations with some classes to be highly dependent upon their path, and with others a more general feeling dependent primarily on the class itself. Fighters and similar provide a strong physical bulwark between the acolyte and those who would harm them, couple that with them having the basis to fight effectively with the buffs a blood acolyte can provide and they are a boon companion. Rogues and their ilk allows a blood acolyte to avoid expending spells painfully to overcome minor obstacles like a locked door or an arrow trap.
    When dealing with other spellcasters things get more complicated. Wizards typically look down on blood acolytes as inferiors incapable of mastering anything but a primitive and barbaric form of their own powers. Sorcerers are more likely to be sympathetic, recognizing it instead as an attempt to become like a sorcerer even at the cost of their own life; some sorcerers pity blood acolytes for this, others scorn them. For their part blood acolytes sometimes resent the arcane spellcasters for having been born with the talent to be a true arcanist and have the easier route to power. In warlocks blood acolytes sometimes find companions. The Path Infernal is in many ways the closest to the standard warlock, but the common defector from evil can still find a common ground with the other two paths; all of them pay for their power.
    Clerics’ relations with blood acolytes vary by deity and path respectively. Shaman’s Path blood acolytes are like less trustworthy druids. Caelestis Via are often recognized as fellow servants of the celestial will and likely to be given the benefit of the doubt. Path Infernal are recognized as servants of Hell, foes or allies dependent upon the cleric’s god. Druids see the Shaman’s Path as allies, like less trustworthy druids. To them the Caelestis Via is mostly harmless, usually well-meaning and unlikely to be able to do much harm regardless of the intent. The Path Infernal is the path which even evil druids are wary of, their penchant for necromancy makes them potentially quite dangerous to the natural world.

    Role: A blood acolyte is a full spellcaster and as such can enter almost any role. They are able to heal, to summon, as well as having a variety of spells to control the mind and the dead, as well as a variety of other purposes. As such a blood acolyte’s role will vary on what path they follow as well what spells they select. The Infernal Path grants a blood acolyte a variety of offensive spells allowing them a mix of enchantment and necromancy to control and kill their foes playing towards the role of offensive spellcaster. The Caelestis Via grants a blood acolyte healing magic at a lower than normal level, making them extremely potent healers except that it costs them their own health and its holy magic giving a variety of weapons with which to fight evil creatures especially fiends or to summon them and as a stick with which to control them. The Shaman’s Path offers spells of the most varied nature but primarily deals with magic to manipulate natural forces or provide divinatory aid.

    Adaptation: A blood acolyte could be adapted in a variety of ways. Perhaps you want to avoid the blood connotations, one could replace blood points with life points changing the gathering method to be based upon the consumption of calories and change the spell list as desired.
    A more simple adaptation is the addition of new paths. A path could be added complete with its own six path powers, or even more simply an alternative path spell list could be added to one of the three existing paths. For example a dwarven version of the Shaman’s Path could be constructed which granted more earth and stone based spells. It would be as simple as exchanging certain spells dealing with air and plants with ones dealing instead with earth and stone. If you did want to take it a step further you could replace some or all of the path abilities. For example looking through the Shaman’s Path both Shield of Spirits and Sustenance of Blood seem highly dwarven in their effects, however the other four abilities are less dwarven. Wild Empathy could be replaced with an improvement to stonecunning (20 ft range and +4 bonus). Speak to Blood could stay as a dwarven option or for something more dwarven in nature you could simply replace it with a similar ability to use Stone Shape with blood points by pouring blood on the surface of the stone to be shaped. Offer Blood and Sense Spirits are both a little harder. Both have dwarven traits, defensiveness and sensing earth elementals but remain generic and in the latter with non-dwarven ones such as sensing incorporeal undead and air elementals as well. One could be replaced by Tremorsense, which is similar to Sense Spirits but perhaps weaker as it changes from limited blindsight to limited blindsense. The other could be replaced by some ability which allowed exchange of blood points for DR or an AC bonus but those might be too similar to Shield of Spirits. One could keep Offer Blood if adapting it proved too much effort or take a look at dwarves’ enemies. If it was a lower level ability one could replace it with a feature to grant various bonuses to fighting orcs, goblinoids, and giants but as by 12th to 15th level those enemies are quickly falling by the wayside. So we look at the other classic foe of dwarves: dragons. We make it a short duration boost which increases damage from spells, AC, and saves against orcs, goblinoids, giants, and dragons for a hefty cost in blood points. It isn’t a too major ability, so we keep the bonuses relatively small, spell level for damage and +2 for the others. Give it a name (Path of Hallowed Ancestors) and decide whether you want to racially lock it (only dwarves may take this path) and you’re done except for duration and blood point costs.
    Spoilered below are some variant paths, a fully fleshed out Path of Hallowed Ancestors, a quick Vampiric Path which replaces certain path powers of the Path Infernal with those more in keeping with a necromancer (and is probably more powerful due to getting Rebuke Undead), and a Blood Warrior list of path spells which is intended for use with any of the three paths.

    As a full caster Blood Acolytes are not for every game and in some could do with a reduction of power. While they should, even with their class features, be weaker than a sorcerer or Tier 1 prepared caster that does not mean they necessarily play nice with everyone. They could be weakened by the removal of their ability to cast higher level Path spells for a (hefty) price and Path Powers or even the total removal of class features beyond 1st level. This is an awkward fix as it leaves them with the powers of a full caster, albeit limited by the continual damage to their Constitution, but it does leave their power level closer to that of the fixed list casters if not below it.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    Blood Acolytes have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Your powers are fueled by burning your own life force. As such Constitution determines your number of spells per day, in addition to its normal vitally important role. In addition as your Constitution tends to decrease throughout the day it is important to have a high Con so that your Fort and hp do not dip too low. Next in importance is probably Charisma as it determines the save DCs of your spells and abilities. While it is possible to go with a low Charisma simply by avoiding abilities that allow saves, many of the strongest spells, especially with their limited access to Conjuration, allow for saves. After that it depends upon the role you wish to take in a party, with Dexterity having additional value for its defensive benefits.
    Alignment: Any (see Patron’s Path for restrictions).
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As bard.
    Starting Gold: As sorcerer.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A Blood Acolyte is proficient in simple weapons but no armor or shields.
    Sanguine Spellcasting
    Important differences are in blue

    A blood acolyte casts sanguine spells, which are drawn primarily from the blood acolyte spell list (see below). He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time, the way a wizard or a cleric must (see below).

    To learn or cast a spell, a blood acolyte needs no minimum ability score. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a blood acolyte’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the blood acolyte’s Charisma modifier.

    Unlike other spellcasters, a blood acolyte is not strictly limited by a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Instead their daily spell allotment is limited by their Constitution. Whenever a blood acolyte casts a sanguine spell they suffer a certain amount of Constitution burn equal to the amount dictated on the table below. A parenthesis indicates a number of spells of that level which can be cast without incurring Constitution burn and any beyond that number inflicts a single point of Constitution burn, and a number followed with a * indicates that the Blood Acolyte cannot cast spells of that level normally, but that it is the total cost of casting that spell through the power of the Patron’s Path or when augmented by metamagic to that level, doing so also requires the expenditure of a number of blood points (see Blood Pool below) equal to the spell’s (modified) level. A Blood Acolyte is not considered to be able to cast spells of these levels for the purposes of prerequisites. Constitution burn inflicted by the use of Sanguine Spells is tied to the caster’s soul as well as body, meaning that if they possess another creature, assume another form, or otherwise end up not in their body the Constitution burn from their Sanguine Spells applies to this new body as well as the original. Once a blood acolyte leaves a body Constitution burn dealt by casting sanguine spells is removed unless the spells were cast in that body. A Blood Acolyte may kill themselves through casting a spell and reducing their Constitution to 0, however they may not cast a spell that would put their Constitution to a negative number.

    Constitution burn inflicted by casting sanguine spells cannot be reduced or prevented in any way unless it specifies casting sanguine spells. Effects which just generally reduce ability damage or burn have no effect on the cost of casting sanguine spells; the sacrifice must be paid in full.
    A blood acolyte’s selection of spells is extremely limited. A blood acolyte begins play knowing four 0-level spells (also called cantrips) and one 1st-level spells of your choice as well as the two 0 and 1st level spells from their Patron’s Path. At each new blood acolyte level, he gains one or more new spells, as indicated on the table below. These new spells are chosen from the blood acolyte spell list (see post below). A P on the table below indicates that a blood acolyte of that level knows both Patron’s Path spells of that level.

    Upon reaching 3rd level, and at every odd-numbered blood acolyte level after that (5th, 7th, and so on), a blood acolyte can choose to learn a new spell in place of one he already knows. In effect, the blood acolyte “loses” the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spell’s level must be the same as that of the spell being exchanged, and it must be at least one level lower than the highest-level blood acolyte spell the blood acolyte can cast. For instance, upon reaching 3rd-level, a blood acolyte could trade in a single 1st level spell (one spell level below the highest-level blood acolyte spell he can cast, which is 2nd) for a different 1st level spell. At 5th level, he could trade in a single 0-level, a 1st-level spell, or a single 2nd-level spell (since he now can cast 3rd-level blood acolyte spells) for a different spell of the same level. A blood acolyte may swap only a single spell at any given level, and must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time that he gains new spells known for the level.

    Unlike a wizard or a cleric, a blood acolyte need not prepare his spells in advance. He can cast any spell he knows at any time, assuming he has not yet used up his spells per day for that spell level. For example, at 1st level, the blood acolyte Tenneh has 14 Constitution and therefore he can cast seven 1st-level spells per day—the seventh killing him. However, he knows only one 1st-level spell, cause fear, and his two path spells, Entangle and Speak with Animals (Blood acolyte Spells Known). Thus, on any given day, he can cast some combination of the three spells a total of seven times plus 3 to 17 of his cantrips however any beyond three would cut into his 1st level spells that day. He does not have to decide ahead of time which spells he’ll cast.

    There are certain special advantages of sanguine spellcasting. Sanguine spells never have non-costly foci or material components, the cost of life force substituting for these with ease. When casting a sanguine spell with a costly foci you may substitute 1 point of Constitution burn for the foci unless it is included in the function of the spell. When casting a sanguine spell with a costly material component you may substitute 1 point of Constitution burn per 50 GP, or fraction thereof, the material component costs. However there is a disadvantage of sanguine spellcasting. Whenever the caster casts a sanguine spell blood flows from their body, the higher level the spell and the higher the Constitution burn the more blood which flows. In addition when a sanguine spell is cast upon a creature or object a runes of blood form upon them. This makes it easy to tell a sanguine spell is being cast requiring a DC 15 Know (Arcana) or DC 20 Know (Religion) check to identify why the spellcaster is bleeding [in a setting where sanguine spellcasting is common this drops to DC 10 or 15] or alternatively what sort of magic placed the runes on the creature. This also makes it possible to identify a non-instantaneous sanguine spell without seeing it cast or even using Detect Magic to do so is a DC 20 + spell level Spellcraft check. Finally excessive use of Sanguine Spellcasting places a toll on the lifeforce. 8 points of Constitution burn inflicted by Sanguine Spellcasting in a day ages the caster a day, 14 points ages them a week, 22 points ages them a month, and 28 points ages them a year; this is primarily a flavor effect and if the DM thinks it is too fiddly to track it is suggested it is dropped and ignored.

    Sanguine spells are neither arcane nor divine. They suffer arcane spell failure, however, if cast in armor the caster is not proficient in.

    Patron’s Path: At 1st level a Blood Acolyte must choose one of three Patron’s Paths. They gain the spells from the chosen path as bonus spells known at the spell level listed below as indicated on the Blood Acolyte spells known table (see above) by a P. They do not have to choose one of the two, they automatically gain both spells at the indicated level. In addition at 3rd level, and every 3rd level thereafter (6th, 9th, etc) a Blood Acolyte gains a power associated with their chosen path as described below. Finally a Blood Acolyte may perform a special ritual to cast a spell from their path that they do not know yet. This increases the spell’s casting time to 1 full round (effect taking place at the start of the caster’s next turn) and costs an amount of Constitution burn as indicated for spells of its level using a * after them on the table above. These spells are not considered to be known, and a blood acolyte is not considered to be able to cast spells of these levels for the purposes of prerequisites.

    The three paths are the Path Infernal, Shaman’s Path, and Caelestis Via. The Path Infernal represents training in the magical lineage first taught by Lower Planar fiends and creatures, and following that path requires performing acts of corrupt magic and ritual and as such requires the Blood Acolyte to be evil aligned. Mechanistically it grants access to Evil aligned spells and its Path Powers include Vile Feats thus locking the practitioner into an evil alignment to gain full use. In addition a folllower of the Path Infernal may select Corrupt spells as spells known as if they were on the Blood Acolyte spells known list. A follower of the Path Infernal which changes from an Evil alignment may spend one month in training and practice to change to the Caelestis Via with the help of an Atonement spell from a good aligned spellcaster, but loses access to their Path Powers and Path Spells until they do so. Any follower of the Shaman’s Path or Caelestis Via can change to the Path Infernal by spending one month in training and practice under the tutelage of an evil outsider without the native subtype or with the help of an Atonement spell from an evil aligned spellcaster. The Shaman’s Path represents training in the way as taught by spirits of nature and fey long ago. It is the path closest to its teachers, as its pact powers involve invoking them for aid, but unlike the Path Infernal it has no restriction on who can follow it. The Caelestis Via practices sanguine spells as taught by the celestials long ago. It is the least connected to the teachers and its practitioners need have no connection to the celestial or may be of any alignment. In addition a folllower of the Path Infernal may select Sanctified spells as spells known as if they were on the Blood Acolyte spells known list.

    Caelestis Via provides a variety of powers to heal, contain or destroy evil, along with a few limited defenses.

    The Path Infernal offers a variety of offensive options, including the ability to spend blood points (see below) to deal damage or add to allies’ damage.

    The Shaman’s Path offers a variety of divinatory options and effects which allow for the control and manipulation of nature.

    Blood Pool: A Blood Acolyte has the ability to store the vital energy found in the blood of others in their body in what is called a blood pool. To do so they must drain the blood from a creature. This can be performed to a creature that died within the past 10 minutes, and takes one minute, or can be performed to a living creature dealing 2 damage per hit die of the creature, this still takes 1 minute and requires the creature either be willing or helpless as well as a slashing or piercing weapon. Regardless of the method a Blood Acolyte gains 1 blood point per hit die of the creature. A Blood Acolyte may possess up to 4 times their hit dice in Blood Points at any one time, any in excess to this amount are wasted. You can gain Blood Points from a single creature only once every 8 hours.

    A Blood Acolyte uses these Blood Points to fuel a variety of class features and abilities. In addition they fuel [Blood] Feats and any character with a [Blood] Feat can gain and store blood points in this way.

    Sanguine Rest (Ex): A blood acolyte’s natural healing works at twice the normal rate and four times the normal rate for the purposes of Constitution damage and burn, allowing them to recover damage, ability damage, and ability burn naturally more quickly. In addition a Blood Acolyte may further spend Blood Points to amplify this healing. 1 point increases it to 3x and 6x normal, 4 points to 4x and 8x normal, 8 points to 6x and 12x normal, 12 points to 8x and 16x normal, 20 points to 10x and 20x normal, and 40 points to 12x normal and fully for Constitution.

    Bloody Buffer (Su): Beginning at 2nd level when a Blood Acolyte would take damage they may spend one or more blood points as an immediate action to delay that much damage until the end of the Blood Acolyte’s next turn at which point they receive it. A Blood Acolyte must spend blood points to delay the entire amount of damage done, they may not delay only part of it. A Blood Acolyte must be aware of the source of damage and may not be flat-footed against it.

    Patron’s Power I: At 3rd level a Blood Acolyte gains a power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via - Alterius Onera Portate (Su): As a standard action you may spend 2 blood points and touch a living creature and take any amount of damage, up to enough damage to kill you, that creature regains hp equal to the amount as the damage you took. This damage is irreducible on your part.

    Path Infernal – Pact of Dark Blood (Su): You gain Willing Deformity as a bonus feat and another Vile feat of your choice. At 9th level and 15th level you gain an additional bonus Vile Feat.

    Shaman’s Path – Wild Empathy (Ex): You gain Wild Empathy as a druid of your Blood Acolyte level.

    Augury of Blood (Sp): Beginning at 5th level a Blood Acolyte may, once per day, spill out half a liter of blood onto the ground and expend 8 Blood Points to use Augury as a spell-like ability. This spell-like ability retains the normal casting time of the spell, and uses the Blood Acolyte’s class level for its caster level. Beginning at 9th level a Blood Acolyte can use this ability twice per day, increasing to three times per day at 13th, and four times at 17th.

    Patron’s Power II: At 6th level a Blood Acolyte gains another power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via- Lingua Sanguinis (Su): Whenever you taste another creature’s blood you may permanently learn its native language, if you do not already know it, as if you had put ranks into Speak Language.

    Path Infernal - Bloody Barb (Su): As a standard action you may spend 3 or more blood points to launch a dart of blood at a foe. This deals 1d6 damage per 3 blood points spent and is a ranged touch attack with a 60 ft range.

    Shaman’s Path – Sustenance of Blood (Su): You offer the vital energy of blood up to the spirits which aid you in exchange for sustenance. By spending 3 blood points you do not need to eat for a day, and 3 blood points can also be spent to avoid the need to drink for a day. You may spend 20 blood points to treat the next 8 hours as sleep and bedrest for all beneficial purposes regardless of the actual intensity of your physical activity. Finally you may spend 1 blood point to not need to breathe for one minute. Spending blood points for this ability requires a 5 minute ritual except for the breath in which case it is a swift action.

    Sanguine Substitution (Su): Beginning at 7th level a Blood Acolyte may cast a certain number of Sanguine Spells without paying the cost of Constitution Burn. Each day a Blood Acolyte may cast a number of spell levels worth of Sanguine Spells equal to their Charisma modifier in this way. These spells replace the Constitution Burn by increasing their casting time by one step (Swift/Immediate -> Standard -> Full Round Action -> 1 Full Round -> 2 Full Rounds -> 3 Full Rounds… etc) and costing Blood Points equal to their spell level squared. A 0 level spell count as 1 spell level for the purposes of uses of this ability but costs no blood points.

    Eyes of Blood (Su): Beginning at 8th level a Blood Acolyte can expend a bit of the essence of life they have stored to reflect that remaining in others. As a swift action a Blood Acolyte may spend 5 Blood Points or take 1 point of Constitution damage (this damage cannot be reduced or prevented) to see the number of hit points a single living creature within 30 ft has remaining, they may spend an additional 5 Blood Points or point of Constitution to double the range, or 10 additional or 2 additional Constitution damage (total of 15 or 3) to increase it to 120 ft.

    Patron’s Power III: At 9th level a Blood Acolyte gains another power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via – Purgabit Sanguinem (Su): As a standard action you may touch another creature and expends 7 blood points to cure a single disease that they are suffering or to neutralize the effects of a single poison within them. You may expend additional blood points to cure an additional disease or neutralize an additional poison per 7 additional blood points spent.

    Path Infernal - Illumination of Blood (Su): Living creatures seem to produce a flickering, sanguine hued light to your eyes. This light creates bright illumination outlining them and shadowy illumination out to 5 ft from them that only you can see. This illumination is bright enough to be seen in the light of a lantern, but a daylight spell or full sunlight obscures it.

    Shaman’s Path – Speak to the Blood (Sp): You may use Speak with Dead as a spell-like ability by expending 14 Blood Points. To use this spell like ability you must fill the corpse’s mouth with blood unless you have the target’s blood. However if you have a creature’s blood you do not need an even partially intact corpse. As long as the blood is fresh you may use the ability directly upon the blood asking it the questions.

    Vision in Blood (Sp): Beginning at 10th level a Blood Acolyte can, when using Augury in Blood expend 24 blood points and a liter of blood to use Scry instead of Augury, they do not need the focus of the scry spell, substituting instead the pool of blood formed. A Blood Acolyte uses their class level for the caster level, and their Charisma modifier for any saving throw DC.

    Bleeding Touch (Su): Beginning at 11th level a Blood Acolyte can, as a standard action make a melee touch attack. If they hit they may expend any number of Blood Points. The target, if a living creature, takes damage equal to the blood points expended, with a Fortitude save (DC 10 + ½ class level + Constitution modifier) for half. If used on an unliving creature (undead, deathless, construct) the ability deals no damage but the blood points are refunded. The exception is a vampire, or similar creature at DM’s discretion, which takes ½ the normal damage if they fail their save and is healed 1 hp per 4 Blood Points spent if they succeed on their save.

    Patron’s Power IV: At 12th level a Blood Acolyte gains another power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via – Caelestis Resistentia (Ex): You gain a +4 bonus to saves vs death effects and Spell Resistance 12 + class level against Necromancy spells and effects.

    Path Infernal – Dark Revelry (Su): As a swift action you may spend 10 or more blood points to produce a crimson hued light for 1 minute. This crimson hued light produces shadowy illumination out to 60 ft, and any allies within 60 ft gain a +1 to weapon damage per 10 blood spent.

    Shaman’s Path – Protection of Blood (Su): Spend 30 or more Blood Points gained from one or more creatures of a specific type as a full-round action to gain a +4 sacred bonus to saving throws against supernatural and spell-like abilities of creatures of that type for 4 hours. This sacred bonus also applies against spells cast by creatures of that type.

    Improved Sanguine Substitution: Beginning at 14th level a Blood Acolyte may use Sanguine Substitution for a number of spell levels equal to twice their Charisma modifier each day.

    Patron’s Power V: At 15th level a Blood Acolyte gains another power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via – Sanguis est Vita (Su): When you cast a spell which restores hit points to a living creature you may spend Blood Points equal to spell level to maximize the amount of hit points cured as if using the Maximize Spell feat. This does not increase casting time, spell level, Constitution burn cost, or affect any random variables other than the number of hit points cured. You may use this ability even if casting the spell not as a sanguine spell or if using a spell-like ability.

    Path Infernal – Rejoice in Blood (Su): Whenever you kill a creature you gain Fast Healing for one minute equal to the number of Vile feats you possess.

    Shaman’s Path - Sense Spirits (Su): You gain blindsight out to 30 ft however this blindsight can only sense: incorporeal undead, fey, elementals, creatures in astral form or with astral bodies (but not a
    creature physically present on the Astral Plane), creatures of the spirit subtype (see Oriental Adventures), spirit folk and telthors (see Unapproachable East), spirit creatures created by spells such as dream sight or wood wose (see Chapter 7), and any other creature that the DM deems to fit as a spirit.

    Greater Vision in Blood (Sp): Beginning at 16th level a Blood Acolyte can, when using Augury in Blood, expend 32 Blood Points and 2 liters of blood to use Scry on Location (Complete Scoundrel) or Divination instead of Augury. A Blood Acolyte uses their class level for the caster level, and their Charisma modifier for any saving throw DC.

    Patron’s Power VI: At 18th level a Blood Acolyte gains a final power granted by their Patron Path.

    Caelestis Via – Animi Sanctitate (Su): As an immediate action you can spend 30 Blood Points to prevent or end a compulsion effect upon you.

    Path Infernal – Weakness of the Blood (Su): As a standard action you may invoke a curse of blood on a target. By spending 30 Blood Points you may cause a creature within 100 ft, or which you possess a piece of their body (such as toenail clippings, or blood) to suffer a -4 penalty to all saving throws for 1 minute.

    Shaman’s Path -Shield of the Spirits (Su): As a swift action you release some of the vital energy of blood you hold within you offering as a sacrifice to the spirits of the world in exchange for their protection. Spend blood points up to equal to your class level and you gain temporary hp equal to twice the number of blood points spent for 1 minute.

    Greater Sanguine Substitution: Beginning at 20th level a Blood Acolyte may use Sanguine Substitution for a number of spell levels equal to their class level (usually 20) plus twice their Charisma modifier each day.

    Default Re: Base Class Contest XXXI - Consumption of the Masses [3.5]

    Feats

    Anemia Feats

    [Anemia] feats are feats which have power which increase the more Constution burn, damage, or drain the possessor is currently suffering.

    Blood Feats

    [Blood] feats are feats that are fueled by Blood Points and give a character a Blood Pool (as described above).

    The Feats Themselves


    Anemic Battle Prowess [Anemia]
    As your health is stripped away, and death hangs low over your brow, your mind focuses on the flow of battle in a desperate effort to survive.
    Prerequisites: +2 Base Fortitude save, BAB +3.
    Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus on attack rolls and damage per 4 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering. If you have Weapon Focus in the weapon used this increases to +1 per 3 points, and if you have Weapon Specialization in the weapon it increases to +1 per 2.

    Anemic Power [Anemia]
    As your health drains away your magic grows ever stronger.
    Prerequisites: Caster level 3+, +5 Base Fortitude save.
    Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus to non-sanguine spellcasting caster level per 6 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you suffer, and a +1 bonus to sanguine spellcasting caster level per 8 points you suffer.

    Anemic Strength [Anemia]
    As your health is stripped away, your adrenaline pumps through you increasing your strength.
    Prerequisites: +2 Base Fortitude save.
    Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus on Strength checks and Strength based skill checks per 3 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering. In addition your Strength for the purposes of carrying capacity is considered to be increased by 1/2 the amount of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering.

    Anemic Talent [Anemia]
    Your talents rise out from the depths when your life force grows weakened.
    Prerequisites: +2 Base Fortitude save, at least 5 ranks in each of 10 different skills.
    Benefit: You gain a +1 competence bonus to skill checks per 5 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering, up to a bonus of 1/2 the number of ranks you possess in that skill. If you possess Skill Focus in a skill the bonus for that skill is increased to +1 per 3 points of Constitution burn.

    Anemic Toughness [Anemia]
    You lose less health to the ravages of your body than most.
    Prerequisites: +2 Base Fortitude save.
    Benefit: You gain +1 hp per character level for every 3 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering.

    Anemic Will [Anemia]
    As your heart blood slows, your mind grows more focused and sharpened on its tasks.
    Prerequisites: +2 Base Fortitude save.
    Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus on Will save per 4 points of Constitution burn, damage, and drain you are currently suffering. If you have Iron Will this increases to +1 per 2 points of Constitution burn.

    Anointed in Second Blood [General]
    You have studied fragments of another path of Sanguine Magic, dabbling in its arts.
    Prerequisites: Patron's Power III.
    Benefits: Select a Patron's Power I from a path other than that you selected at 1st level. You gain that Patron's Power. If you have a Patron's Power IV you may select a Patron's Power II, if you have a Patron's Power V you may select a Patron's Power III, if you have a Patron's Power VI you may select a Patron's Power IV.
    Special: You may take this feat multiple times you must select a different power each time.

    Blood Rejection [Blood]
    By channeling the vital essence drawn from creatures' blood you bolster you own bloods' resistance to diseases and toxins.
    Prerequisites: Heal 4 ranks.
    Benefit: As an immediate action you may spend Blood Points up to twice your character level to gain a Resistance bonus to saving throws against disease and poison for 1 round.

    Connoisseur of Blood [General]
    You are able to identify a creature from the taste of its blood, sensing its species at a taste.
    Prerequisites: Blood Pool, Knowledge (any) 4 ranks.
    Benefit: By tasting the blood of a creature you can identify its type and species.

    Death's Harvest [Blood, Vile]
    When you kill a creature you absorb their life force into yourself, storing it as Blood Points.
    Benefit: Whenever you kill a creature you gain Blood Points equal to its Hit Dice. You may still absorb Blood Points from the dead creature's blood as usual.

    Follow Blood [Blood]
    By tasting a creature's blood you can sense its distance and direction from you, following it with a preternatural sense.
    Prerequisites: Survival 6 ranks.
    Benefit: By tasting the blood of a creature and spending 3 Blood Points you create a link between you and it. You can sense the general direction to the creature as long as they are within 1 mile per character level squared. If you are within 100 ft per character level squared then you can sense the creature's exact distance and location within 1 square per 50 ft (rounded up) away from you it is. This link lasts for 1 minute before it dissolves, you may spend 3 Blood Points as a free action to extend the duration of the link by 1 minute.

    Reclaim Spell's Blood [Blood]
    When you cast a sanguine spell and it is resisted you are able to reclaim some of the vital energy spent to work it back once more into your body. It loses a certain potency, however, as it is recollected.
    Prerequisites: Ability to cast Sanguine Spells.
    Benefit: When you cast a Sanguine Spell and all targets of the spell successfully save against it you gain Blood Points equal to its spell level. In addition you may expend a use of a Sanguine Spell (paying the Constitution burn as normal, or sacrificing the free use) to gain Blood Points equal to its spell level.

    Sanguine Counter Spell [Blood]
    You are able to use the vital energy within you to attempt to counter and disrupt magic.
    Prerequisites: Ability to cast Greater Dispel Magic, ability to cast Sanguine Spells
    Benefit: As an immediate action you may attempt to counter a spell or spell-like ability as if you had cast Greater Dispel Magic to do so. To do so you must expend a number of blood points based on its level as shown on the table below, if you are uncertain of its level you must choose an amount to pay and, if it is insufficient, your attempt automatically fails. Your bonus to the dispel check made as part of this effect is equal to your character level.
    Spell Level Blood Points
    0 1
    1 4
    2 9
    3 16
    4 25
    5 36
    6 49
    7 64
    8 81
    9 100
    10 121
    11 144

    Second Heart [Blood]
    You have a second, smaller, reservoir of sanguine energy into which you may store Blood Points.
    Prerequisites: You must possess a Blood Pool.
    Benefit: You may store Blood Points equal to 5 times your Character Level instead of 4 times your Character Level.

    Transfer Blood [Blood]
    You are able to grant the vital power that you have absorbed from others to an ally.
    Prerequisites: Constitution 13+.
    Benefit: As a standard action you may transfer any number of Blood Points you possess to the Blood Pool of a willing creature that you are touching.

    Vital Resistance [Blood]
    By channeling the vital essence drawn from creatures' blood you bolster you own bloods' resistance to diseases and toxins.
    Prerequisites: Heal 8 ranks.
    Benefit: As an immediate action you may spend Blood Points to gain a Resistance bonus to your next saving throw equal to 1/4th the number of Blood Points spent.

    Voice of Blood [Blood]
    You are able to lace your voice with the powers of blood and its sanguine mysteries.
    Prerequisites: Cha 13+, Bluff, Diplomacy, or Intimidate 4 ranks and 2 ranks in each of the other two.
    Benefit: By expending 3 Blood Points as a swift action you may grant yourself a +2 competence bonus to Bluff, Diplomacy, and Intimidate checks for 1 minute. By spending 8 Blood Points instead you can increase this bonus to +3. By expending 15 you can increase it to +4. By expending 25 you can increase it to +5. By expending 40 points you can increase it to +6. By expending 60 points you can increase it to +6. By expending 90 points you can increase it to +8.
