mb, I'll take a gander at the sheets once I move them to the top post (and am not posting from a restaurant). Also:




Embrodak, good to see you back, and I'm sorry for your loss.

I updated the sheet with the wolf and hybrid forms in the notes and added the fourth level stat increase I forgot. Wondering if it's up to snuff.

Kainti is almost ready to rock and roll! (And rip and tear!)


1. Your xp is the amount needed to attain 8th level. Remember, you have 2 levels of wolf, 4 levels of fighter, and then 2 levels of adjustment (because you're all so cool) = 8 levels. You will need enough xp to attain 9th level before you gain another level of fighter (or whatever you'll want to take).

2. Background. The Notes section is a good place for that. Also, I'll have a slight but flavorful addition for it, when you're done.

I'm putting together a table for determining my stats. Thankfully the Cleric and Animals have the same BAB.


Questions: Do we get these racial bonuses?

Also for feats. It has

In the Leopard Description it has Alertness, Weapon Finesse in the Stat Block and then
Improved Grab (Ex), Pounce (Ex), Rake (Ex) under combat.
Iron Will is obvious, but the others I question.. Do I get the (EX) abilities as class skills automatically? Then it Has Alertness and Weapon Finesse (it seems those are the feats taken at first and 3rd). I assume If I want them I would have to work those in, which assuming I have Cleric at levels 1-3, I can not until level 6..)

Yes, you get all the racial skill bonuses that are presented in the stat block for the animal.

Also, you get the (Ex) abilities while in animal form only.

A lycanthrope’s hybrid form does not gain any special attacks of the base animal. A lycanthrope spellcaster cannot cast spells with verbal, somatic, or material components while in animal form, or spells with verbal components while in hybrid form.


Oh hey, your feats question is a good one Em. The SRD says this:

If this results in a lycanthrope having the same feat twice, the lycanthrope gains no additional benefit unless the feat normally can be taken more once, in which case the duplicated feat works as noted in the feat description. This process may give the lycanthrope more feats than a character of its total Hit Dice would normally be entitled to; if this occurs, any “extra” feats are denoted as bonus feats.

It’s possible that a lycanthrope cannot meet the prerequisites for all its feats when in humanoid form. If this occurs, the lycanthrope still has the feats, but cannot use them when in humanoid form. A lycanthrope receives Iron Will as a bonus feat.
Which seems to say that any feats that the base animal has, the lycanthrope also has. They may not be able to use all of those feats all the time, but they're still there. This is correct Ridin?

All right, TheChuck's post clears up a lot of stuff, but also raises some additional questions. Namely, does this mean that any feats granted by our "animal" HD are beyond our control? Each of our characters has 6 HD. For example, my character has four levels in bard, and two in wolf. I choose three feats as per normal for a fourth-level human character, and then I have my two wolf HD. Those grant me the feats Track and Weapon Focus (bite). Now, do I get one more feat for being a character with 6 Hit Dice, or do I not get that feat because my animal HD are already granting me other feats?

I'm with you.

Embrodak, char sheets are to be kept secret. You will all be meeting for the first time, and I prefer to have abilities, equipment, background and the like roleplayed.

No, my read would be that the feats stack. You get your additional one at 6th level regardless of how many animal feats you received at the start.

Dice Roll:
(as this is an older post, these rolls are interpreted by the older (more basic) dice roller code)
4d10: 1, 6, 10, 4Total = 21
