Necrocraft (Bestiary 4 pg.200)
When making a Necrocraft that has more CP then normally given, its “effective” HD for creating and controlling is increased by +1HD for every 4 extra CP spent. For example a Medium Necrocraft gets 2 CP, but you use 6CP, it still has 4 HD but is effectively 5HD when controlling and creating.
Extra HD (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft gains an additional HD, a necrocraft cannot have more HD that its size category allows. For example a Medium necrocraft can have a maximum of 6HD and a Large can have a maximum of 9HD etc…
Extra Arms (Ex, 3 CP): The necrocraft gains an additional pair of arms, with it it gains an additional +2 to strength. This pair of arms does not come with any natural attacks.
Extra Dexterity (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft’s Dexterity increases by 2 but its Strength decreases by 2. This ability can be selected twice.
Gore Attack (Ex, 2 CP): The necrocraft was made with a number of horns on its head, giving it a gore attack.
Pincers (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft was made with large pincers at the end of one pair of its limbs, giving it two pincer attacks. This replaces any claw attacks or other natural attacks the limbs previously had.
Tail (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft has a long, powerful tail. This grants it a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics checks made to balance on a surface.
Tail Slap (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft can use its tail to bash nearby foes, granting it a tail slap attack.
Sting Attack (Ex, 1 CP): The necrocraft possesses a long, barbed stinger at the end of its tail, granting it a sting attack. This grants it an injury poison DC of 10 plus HD plus Cha dealing 1d4 to a physical ability score with a frequency of 1/round for 6 rounds, cure 2 consecutive saves. Requires a Tail.
A Vampire is the iconic intelligent undead, the blood sucker that comes through the night. Except there are several base types of vampire to start with, the Nosferatu, Vetala, Psychic and the iconic Vampire.
- From here there can be several deviations that change from vampire to vampire, they don’t drain blood they drain Spinal Fluid (Int instead of Con Drain), or Synovial Fluid (Dex drain) etc..
- The vampire template (and vampires themselves) move speed becomes triple what the base creatures was.
- Vampire Lords gain a similar bonus to their move speed, with a 150ft fly speed.
- Dhampir are as per normal, except their base move speed is 40ft instead of 30. This is because of a Vampire’s unnatural speed in this world.
