    Default Inumimi (Wolf/Dog-folk) and various strange subraces (PEACH)

    Well, given the amount of cats on this board and in dnd in general, I figure I'd better even the playing field a bit.

    Little fun fact I didn't know about GitP's text box until writing this up... It doesn't like the caron accent character. Apparently it's a little bit too big for the lines it uses and so it puts it off to the side. Thankfully I only needed to use it once, so I was able to switch it out with a breve, but it's going to annoy the baator out of me whenever I see it.

    • Level Advancement: +1

It gains +2 Strength, +2 Constitution, and -2 AC. The creature can end it's frenzy voluntarily, but it ends automatically once the first enemy dies to the frenzied inumimi.

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

    Sundering Fur: Due to the coarseness of their fur, frenzied inumimi are able to cut through restraints and bindings. While bound, a frenzied inumimi may attempt a special burst action on their bindings. On making this action, the frenzied inumimi makes a single strength roll against their bindings that adds double their strength modifier, their size modifier, and their natural armour bonus in addition to any other modifiers that would influence the roll.

    Natural Armour: Frenzied inumimi have a +3 natural armour bonus.

    Natural Weapons: Frenzied inumimi have two primary natural claw attacks that deal 1d8 damage and a secondary natural bite attack that deals 1d8 damage.

    • Automatic Languages: Common, Canis, and Auran.
    • Level Advancement: +2

    Electric Body: As a swift action, a jolter can transform itself into a ball of living lightning. While in this form, the jolter gains the incorporeal subtype and incorporeal quality. It only takes half damage from corporeal sources if they are magical (it takes no damage from non-magical weapons and objects). Additionally, it sparks with electricity while it is in this form. Any creature that touches the jolter with a natural or unarmed attack or whose square the raiju passes through during its movement must succeed at a DC 17 Reflex save or take 1d6 points of electricity damage per 3 HD the jolter has (minimum 0d6). The save DC is Dexterity-based.

    In normal weather, a jolter can remain incorporeal for a number of rounds per day equal to its Hit Dice, though it can remain incorporeal for twice as long during a thunderstorm.

    These inumimi are commonly seen as protectors of the weak and champions of good, but the truth is a little different. Aral inumimi are inumimi resembling the senmurv, which is where they get the misinformed stereotype, and resemble them in many ways. Arals have two large avian wings upon their back, glowing eyes, and beautifully patterned fur and feathers.

    Arals, however, are not bound by their likeness in their alignment and in fact it is fairly easy to tell what alignment an aral subscribes to by the colour of their eyes. Their eyes glow very slightly in two different colours that slowly fade into one another in a sort of gradient dependent on their alignment: Red-Evil, Blue-Good, White-Law, Black-Chaos, Green-Neutral(Moral), Grey-Neutral(Ethical). When an aral is under the effect of a spell or ability similar to undetectable alignment, their eyes seem to be any alignment the viewer isn't prejudiced against.

    ARAL CHARACTERS

    Aral characters possess the same racial traits as normal inumimi except where noted here.
    • +2 Dex, +2 Wis, -2 Str, -2 Con (+4 App)
    • Special Qualities: Flight, gliding, wing-aided movement

    Gliding (Ex): Arals can use their wings to glide, negating damage from a fall of any height and allowing 20 feet of forward travel for every 5 feet of descent. Aral glide at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability), Even if an aral's maneuverability improves, she can't hover while gliding. An aral can't glide while carrying a medium or heavy load. If an aral becomes unconscious or helpless while in mid air, their wings naturally unfurl and powerful ligaments stiffen the wings. The aral descends in a tight corkscrew and takes only 1d6 points of falling damage, no matter what the actual distance of the fall.

    Flight (Ex): When an aral reaches 3 Hit Dice, they become able to fly at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability). An aral can't fly while carrying a medium or heavy load or while fatigued or exhausted. Aral can safely fly for a number of rounds equal to their Constitution modifier (minimum 1 round). They can exert themselves to fly for up to twice as long, but then theyíre fatigued at the end of the flight. aral are likewise fatigued after spending a total of more than 10 minutes per day flying. Because aral can glide before, after, and between rounds of actual flight, they can remain aloft for extended periods (even if they can only use flight for 1 round at a time without becoming fatigued).

    When they reach 5 Hit Dice, aral have enough stamina and prowess to fly for longer periods. They can fly at a speed of 40 feet (average maneuverability), and flying requires no more exertion than walking or running. An aral with flight can make a dive attack. A dive attack works like a charge, but the aral must move a minimum of 30 feet and descend at least 10 feet. An aral can make a dive attack only when wielding a piercing weapon; if the attack hits, it deals double damage. A aral with flight can use the run action while flying, provided she flies in a straight line.

    Wing-Aided Movement: Aral can use their wings to help with movement even if they can't fly yet. The extra lift from their wings gives an aral a +10 racial bonus on acrobatics checks.

Lanky and gaunt with pebble-like scales covering patchworked skin, fur and flesh covering the areas without scales, soulless, empty white eyes, and horrific claws and mouths, these inumimi are a sight to behold.

    • Level Advancement: +3

    Angled Entry (Su): Angle inumimi move through the dimensions in ways other creatures cannot comprehend. They may use dimension door (self only) once/day/HD as a swift action and plane shift (self only) 1/day/3 HD(min 0) as a standard action. An angle inumimi can use these powers anywhere, but its destination point must be adjacent to a fixed angle or corner in the physical environment, such as a wall, floor, or ceiling (as determined by the GM); temporary angles created by cloth, flesh, or Small items are not sufficient. It cannot use these abilities to enter curved architecture or open outdoor environments.

    At level 7 they trade dimension door for teleport and the use becomes once per day per 5 HD.

    At level 14 they trade teleport for greater teleport and the use becomes once per day.

    Otherworldly Mind (Ex): Any non-outsider attempting to read the thoughts of an angle inumimi or communicate with it telepathically takes 1d6 points of nonlethal damage per 2 HD and must make a DC (10+1/2 HD+Cha) Will save or become confused for 1d4 rounds. This is a mind-affecting effect. The save DC is Charisma-based.

Often thought to be dangerous and bad omens, these inumimi tend to become travelers and mercenaries to make their lives away from those who would look down upon them. Whilst they are seen as evil, they can be of any alignment, and in deed many seek to prove the good that their kind can do.

    LIGHT-EATER CHARACTERS

    Light-eater characters possess the same racial traits as normal inumimi except where noted here.
    • +2 Str, +2 Wis, +2 Cha, -2 Dex, -2 Int, -2 Wis (-2 App)
    • Special Qualities: Darkvision 60 ft., see in darkness, shadow fundamentals, shadowcaster affinity, sun-eater form, total eclipse

    See in Darkness (Su): At level 10, light-eater inumimi gain the see in darkness ability.

    Shadow Fundamentals: Light-Eater inumimi gain the following shadow fundamentals as supernatural abilities usable a number of times per day equal to their HD+their charisma modifier: Black Candle, Caul of Shadows, and Sight Obscured. These fundamentals and their uses are in addition to any gained through the shadowcaster class and are tracked separately

    At level 8, a light-eater may use these three fundamentals an unlimited number of times per day.

    Shadowcaster Affinity: A light-eater with one or more levels in the shadowcaster class is counted as two levels higher when calculating any ability based on it. This benefit canít increase their effective Shadowcaster level to higher than their ECL, nor does it grant them access to class abilities they do not already have access to (it may grant access to higher-level mysteries, however).

    Sun-Eater Form (Su): Starting at level 15, a light-eater may use two consecutive full-round actions to activate this ability. Upon activation, the light level of the surrounding (50 feet/HD) is lowered by one level, the light eater becomes incorporeal, and grows three size categories to a maximum of colossal. While in this form, the light-eater gains a fly speed of 60 feet(perfect) and may use the total eclipse ability.

    Total Eclipse (Su): While in the Sun-Eater form, the light-eater may use this ability. Upon the use of this ability, the light-eater immediately exits the sun-eater form and returns to their previous form. The light level of the area affected by the sun-eater form lowers by an additional one level and all foes within the area affected take 3d6 per light level lower than bright illumination.

    True, but they're more a counterpart to my nekomimi race and it's subraces. That and I didn't really feel like the title of inugami suited them.

    Danke, I was working off of some basic canids from dnd and then branched off into mythology.

    Some of them probably need LA and others don't but I was too tired to deal with that after writing them out. I'll handle the LA when I get back from work in the morning.
