Feline Humanoids (New Class)

The Khajiit where the inspiration for this class. I looted the Mystic, as presented in the Rules Cyclopedia, for the special abilities. To build the class I used this pdf over at Breeyark.

*"Takes only half damage (round down) from all spells and breath weapons that inflict damage, or one-quarter damage (round down) if the saving throw is successful. Any attack that does him damage will do a minimum of 1 point of damage, even if rounding indicates 0 points of damage." (RC, page 31)


  1. Very cool indeed! Nice coincidence. And I like your approach (especially connecting the damage from falling to a character's level)! Interesting how the same idea varies in different executions...

  2. I think yours is more serious and mine is more tongue-in-cheek.

    1. Our XP values are not too far off from each other either. I capped mine at 9 since you know, 9 lives.

    2. Hmm. Seems like they should have to die to level up.

  3. Ha! Good one with the nine lives :) And you're right, close results in xp, hp and thieving skills, more or less. Yours turned out to be more like a thief (which actually is more true for the Khajiit), while I wanted them to be warriors and fierce hunters.

    It's a regular class in our group for some time now. The ladies seem to like it for some reason...

    Yeah, I decided to go with a flat description to make it easier for readers to implement the class, if they want to. I thought about doing it the way you did, though. Anyway, I'd allow yours as an alternative.


Recent developments made it necessary to moderate posts again. Sorry about that, folks.
