    Default "Rise brother, for that is our curse" [Mythos, 3.5][Dark Souls Hollow]

    Hollowing Ones


    "Oh, hello there. I will stay behind, to gaze at the sun. The sun is a wondrous body. Like a magnificent father! If only I could be so grossly incandescent!"
    — Solaire of Astora

    Hollowing Ones first appeared when a lord of flame denied the coming dark. The Dark struck back, marking many living with the Darksign upon death, reanimating after a time. Throughout the history of the plane of souls, there has been a cycle that starts and ends with a hollowing one who chooses to link the Firelink Shines or leave them unlinked. The end of the cycle is only a time of dark until a new hollowing one takes up the task of linking.

    Creating A Hollowing One
    "Hollowing One" is an acquired template that can be added to any living corporeal Giant, Humanoid, or Monstrous Humanoid with a soul, and Intelligence of 3 or higher.
    A hollowing one has all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here, with the exception of humans who lose all racial abilities.

    Size and Type
    The creature’s type changes to deathless(Darksign). Do not recalculate base attack bonus, saves, or skill points. Size is unchanged.

    Hit Dice
    Unlike other deathless HD are unchanged, New racial HD are D8

    Special Qualities
    A Hollowing One has all the special qualities of the base creature and gains the following special qualities.

    Darksign(Su): Hollowing Ones are deathless on all accounts. Additionally, they gain none of the Deathless Immunities. They also retain their constitution score in their semblance of undeath. They are still destroyed upon reaching 0hp, see below. They additionally gain Turn Resistance equal to their current sanity. If a Hollowing One reconstitutes with 0 sanity they become a Hollow.
    Hollows become mindless and intelligence becomes a nonability. Additionally, they lose the ability to use their Humanity ability.
    Darksign is a curse with caster level 30 and prevents all forms of life restoration magic from working, rendering them immune to raise dead, reincarnation, resurrection and even true resurrection. Once the sign is removed only True Resurrection or better can be used for the resurrection. Cremation in the flames of an active Firelink Bonfire cleanses the curse of Darksign.
    Hollowing ones are not at risk of death from massive damage, but when reduced to 0 hit points or less, it is immediately destroyed, falling to the ground and decomposing over the course of a week to ash.
    Cannot heal damage on its own if it has no Intelligence score, although it can be healed. Positive energy (such as a cure spell) can heal hollowing creatures. The fast healing special quality works regardless of the creature’s Intelligence score.

    Bonfire Reconstitution (Su): Upon being destroyed and undergoing the week-long process of smoldering to ash the Hollowing One reconstitutes at the last Firelink Bonfire they rested at after 1 week per mile from the shrine. If the last Firelink Bonfire is not kindled or has not been kindled to your level tier then you instead travel to the nearest kindled Firelink Bonfire of your tier.
    Coming back from the dead is an ordeal. The Hollowing One loses 15 sanity when it is reconstituted, fear resistances cannot not reduce this damage. Upon reconstituting all abilities expended and time must be spent recovering to restore them as per normal rest requirements.
    A reconstituted hollowing one has a number of hit points equal to its current Hit Dice. Any ability scores damaged to 0 are raised to 1. Normal poison and normal disease are cured in the process of raising the subject, but magical diseases and curses are not undone. While the reconstitution closes mortal wounds and repairs lethal damage of most kinds, the body of the Hollowing One must be whole. Otherwise, missing parts are still missing when they are brought back to life. None of their equipment or possessions are affected in any way by this spell.
    A creature who has been killed by a death effect can’t be raised by this ability. Additionally, if the Hollowing One is cremated they do not reconstitute.

    Darkvision 60ft: If the base creature does not already have darkvision or their darkvision is less then 60ft they gain darkvision 60t. If they have darkvision of 60ft or better there is no change.

    Soul Currency(Su): The hollowing one gains Soul Treasury as a bonus feat.

    Humanity(Su): The Hollowing One may expend 500 Souls or Mythos Points per HD they have to recover a semblance of humanity. This vestige allows them to be treated in all ways as a living being as their withered forms take on the supple flesh they bore in life. Upon reconstitution, this semblance is lost and they return to their wither true forms, but your humanity prevents, sanity, level loss and ability score loss

    Level Adjustment: +0(human) +1(Nonhuman)

    Estus: A rare quartz-like stone found in places where soul stuff leaks into the world. With proper working small amounts can be worked into a flask that gathers ambient soul stuff from Firelinked bonfires. Someone can then drink from the flask to recover health or magical resources if the flask is attuned properly. Estus's value in flask form has lead to it not being used for many other purposes as such estus weapon and armors are rare. They tend to not hold an edge suffering the normal difficulties of stone made weapons. Armor made of estus weights as much as its stone counterpart and thus is not favored for that purpose. However, they do still have the ability to hold an estus charge. Items made of Estus cost 250g in raw estus per pound of the finished item.

    Firelink Bonfire
    When a hollowing one rests at a Firelink Bonfire for at least 8 hours they recover to full health and all abilities, all non-magical ailments are cured. If the Coiled Sword is removed from a Firelink Bonfire it ceases to function and all linked Hollowing are unbound and know instantly they are unbound. A hollowing one cannot bind to a Firelink Bonfire if they exceed its mythos tier. Most bonfires in the world are only exceptional, allowing up to 6th level hollowing ones to be bound.

    Firelink Shrine
    When a hollowing one takes up the task of linking the flame they are tied to a Firelink Shrine if no shrine existed before then a new one comes into being. At the center of the Firelink Shrine is a Firelink Bonfire able to reconstitute any Hollowing One regardless of level. The shrine is always several layers tall and is created in a location with an ancient history now dead. Due to the shrines nature, Hollowing Ones find solace in its halls, as such it is common for several Hollowing Ones to take residence in the shrine to sell wares and provide services. When the shrine is formed a keeper is named, and they gain a Geas to tend the shrine. The Keeper is often a powerful cleric or another person of faith. Should a keeper die then a new keeper is named.

    FP cost: 45 Action: Standard


    Soul Arrow
    FP cost: 7 Action: Standard
    Call forth the welling power in your soul, firing an arrow at your target. This spell fires an arrow that functions identically to Magic Missile. Unlike Magic Missile, it can only fire one arrow and the arrow deals the same damage as your catalyst.

    Spook
    FP cost: 15 Action: Standard
    By focusing yourself and deading the kinetic transference you silence your steps. While this sorcery is active you gain +20 to move silently as you footfalls make no sound. You also negate all fall damage when you succeed at a jump check to reduce the fall damage.

    Nature Magic: Nature magic/spells function identically to divine spells, but their nature is not divine, as such things that cut off someone's connection to the divine have no effect. Nature magic takes a step longer to cast than normal versions of the spells. If the elements of the spell are with-in 30ft of the caster the spell is cast at one step faster than normal.
