Draconic InvocationsUnless otherwise stated, the effects of an invocation last for 24 hours. Any effects of an invocation that duplicate a spell share that spell's duration. Invocations can be dispelled.
When you use this invocation, you gain the ability to breathe underwater. You also gain a swim speed equal to your base land speed. Your breath weapon functions normally underwater regardless of its effect.
You gain the benefits of a detect magic spell. While the invocation is active, you may end the effect as a full-round action to determine all of the magical or psionic properties of a single item touched.
This invocation grants you a competence bonus on any Charisma-based ability checks and skill checks that you make, equal to 1/2 your caster level. If you choose to expend t
Pathfinder: New Feats: N - ZNimble Fury
You may not become as strong or tough in your rage, but you become deadly accurate and swift.
Prerequisite: Rage class feature
Benefit: Any effect that increases your Strength in a rage instead increases your Dexterity. Any effect that increases your Constitution in a rage instead increases your base speed by five feet per point.
You bounce back from even the greatest blows.
Prerequisite: At least one level of Warrior

Overwhelming Assault (Combat Feat)
If you attack a foe who does nothing to turn aside your attack, you press forward with an indomitable strike. Only a fool ignores the deadly threat that you present.
Dual-Class CharactersDual-classing is a process that a player can apply during character creation. A dual-classed character represents the ideal of a particular combination of classes - the ideal warrior/mage, the ideal priest/thief, et cetera. For the most part, a dual-classed character is rolled up and leveled like any other character - but with a few key differences.
A character is only eligible to become a dual-classed character at first level. This decision cannot be made later on in his career after attaining additional hit dice, and it cannot be undone once selected. The path of a dual-classed character is a long and difficult one, requiring a lifetime of dedication to perfect.
When creating a dual-classed character, the player must select a demi-human race. For the purposes of dual-classing, a demi-human race is any humanoid race that possesses a subtype other than "Human" (for example, elves, dwarves, gnomes, halfling
KnightThe Knight is not a base class unto itself. It is an archetype that can be selected by fighters. For more information on archetypes, see the Advanced Player's Guide.
A knight is a proud, skilled melee combatant who fights in the name of honor and chivalry. However he is as much diplomat as he is warrior. In fact, the greatest of knights pride themselves on their ability to resolve conflicts without ever even needing to draw their weapon. To this end a knight relies on more than a sharp sword and a stout suit of armor to defeat his foes. The knight requires wit and wisdom, both the knowledge of what his foes desire and the insight to best apply this secret weapon.
In battle, a knight's drive, determination and fighting spirit allow him to control the battlefield in ways that others cannot match. A knight can challenge an opponent to a duel, calling upon the foe's pride and ego to force his hand.
BeguilerThe Beguiler is not a base class unto itself. It is an archetype that can be selected only by wizards who choose Illusion as their arcane school. For more information on archetypes, see the Advanced Player's Guide.
Some hold truth to be the greatest virtue, but it can do more damage than fiction. Everyone lives in a constant state of deception. White lies, false smiles, and secret thoughts keep society running smoothly. Honesty is a virtue only up to a certain point. Beguilers understand these ideas better than anyone, and they use deception, misunderstandings, and secrets as skillfully as a soldier employs weapons of war.
Beguilers see lying and manipulation as tools. Just as a hammer can be used to build a house or crack a skull, deceit and the ability to control others can be used for good or ill. A lie whispered in the right ear can ruin lives, but a dishonest smile and honeyed words can
Playing a Monstrous RaceIn some cases, it might be acceptable (or even prudent) for a player to generate a character that does not belong to the standard races described in Chapter 2 of the Core Rulebook. In this case, he may desire to play a "monstrous character"; that is, a character whose race is listed in the Bestiary and typically used as a monster or villain. For the most part, the process to develop a monstrous character follows the procedures for a standard character.
Step I: Effective Character Level
Some monstrous races are defined by their class levels, and do not have racial hit dice. This includes, but may not necessarily be limited to, the: Aasimar, goblin, hobgoblin, kobold, merfolk, mite, orc, tengu, and tiefling. If the character belongs to one of these races, generate the character as normal (racial traits are already presented).
GM's may also allow a character's race to be a creature typically defined by racial hit dice, so lo
Vile InitiateMany names have come to the vile initiate. Bastard Paladins, dark champions, soulless fiends. It would indeed seem that the vile initiate is a man happy to barter away his soul and condemn himself to the damnations of Hell. But in doing so, he earns the favor of his dark lord and is rewarded for his abhorrent acts with the burning powers of Hell's fire.
A vile initiate is sponsored by a particular fiendish patron, much the way a knight is sponsored by his baron or noble patron. His duty is to further the cause of his patron, even at the expense of conflicting with other vile initiates and their patron lords. After all, there are no friends in Hell and its lords are prone to scheme against one another. The vile initiate is rewarded for his service with a small taste of Hell's might - power he often uses to subjugate his mortal foes, to scour the land of those he hates, or simply to rain destruction and suffering down on a
Hallowed OneParagons of justice. Champions of virtue. Celestials are the manifestation of all that is good and right in the world. Many in number are those who have aspired to live up to the lofty example set by these begins of light. Many, also, have failed miserably. As a hallowed one, you have taken purity and made it your reason to live. Each day you struggle with the dark currents of your own mortal heart. But you are rewarded by the powers-that-be for your vigilance, given a taste of divine perfection.
Hallowed ones often operate outside of the scope of their deity's church. They have little use for the trappings of religious hierarchy - they simply want to do what's right. As a result, those who progress down this path are often the subject of suspicion and envy among the priesthood.
An NPC hallowed one may be a heretic-priest who has chosen to leave temple politics behind, or he could be a si
Artist, Specialization RulesJust as a wizard might, an artist may choose to specialize in a particular school of magic: Abjuration, Conjuration, Divination, Enchantment, Evocation, Illusion, Necromancy, or Transmutation. Unlike a wizard, however, the artist does not have to choose to choose a school at first level or at all. Anytime a character gains a level of artist, he may choose to become a specialist. Vice-versa, anytime a specialized artist gains a new class level, hey may choose to broaden his studies and become a generalist. A specialist artist that becomes a generalist does not lose the unique ability and penalty described below, though he loses all other benefits and weaknesses associated with his previous specialty.
Benefits: If/when an artist decides to specialize, he selects one school of magic like a wizard would. The benefits of this choice are as listed below. When applicable, note that these benefits apply only to spe
Tainted | Snk x Male!Reader [Chapter 1]
Don't forget to go read the prologue.
The sun shone brightly against the backdrop of a baby blue sky; clouds hovering overhead in all their fluffy glory. It was hot enough to be wearing short sleeved shirts, but the uniform of the Trainee Corps restricted the access to having a cool day. It didn't help that the trousers were scratchy and tight, and it didn't help that the jacket clung to their scrawny arms. However, none of the recruits seemed to be complaining. Each had a dream; each had a goal to accomplish. There wasn't a single soul stood on these particular ground that was there just to simply be there. Some had the hopes of making it into the Military Police, where they'd be safe in the center of the walls and never have to worry about dying a painful death to the Titans. These young men and women could be viewed as cowards by some people, but others admired them. Whilst other people chose to deal with lives in their respective district, the people stood here at lea
The Princess Saves HerselfCisna Duchy, a princess of great royal status was quickly approaching her 21st birthday and upon be coming of age her father the King would step down and hand the crown and throne over to her as years of tradition dictated.
However, if Cisna was unable to make it to the coronation, her cousin Isara would then be made queen instead. Everyone thought the two cousins loved and got along with each other but deep down Isara badly wanted to become the next queen
On the eve of her coronation some bandits broke into the castle on the orders of Isara to kidnap Cisna.
Cisna who had dark long hair had just finished her bath and was settling down to go to sleep in her bed clad in her long dark pink dress robe with white thick socks and just as she was closing her eyes she heard a soft struggle outside her doors. As she got up the door to her bedroom opened and the bandits came rushing in with her maid bound and thickly gagged and held between one of their arms.
"No! Let her go!" Cisna cried
Snooper PrimeLiz Daioyu waved goodbye to the police as they transported an upcoming girl power gang away to jail. Liz was enjoying a nice evening of finding herself a late treat like ice cream or a big cookie when she noticed some delinquent female teenagers gathering in a back alley. Being the snooper she was, Liz decided to put her late night sweet raid on hold and checked it out.
Naturally she had uncovered the group planning on a massive property raid which if they had their way would leave several male only orientated places egged, full of graffiti and other things that would cost hundreds of dollars in repairs and clean up. Before Liz could get away she was spotted, tied up and tossed in a dumpster to enjoy the smell of bad garbage till they could deal with her later on. Struggling in the dumpster, she had found something sharp and used it to get free and managed to tip off the cops just in time to catch them in the act.
"Alright, for all that I should get myself two ice cream cones." Liz sai
Blood, Sweat and Tears Ch 05
Blood Sweat and Tears Ch 05
Bertrand spent last night at Nadia’s place doing tons of activities with Nadia. Most of the time they spent watch TV together and play board games. It was a fun experience. It made him forget everything that happened before. The day ended with him training with Nadia.
Bertrand twisted and turned in his sleep, feeling uncomfortable. He’s sleeping on Nadia’s father’s bed. It could fit one person and that should give him enough space since he’s small, unless somebody was sleeping next to him. Besides that, he felt someone’s hands resting on top of his chest.
“Mm…,” He slowly opened his eyes and looked down through his groggy eyes. Yup, it’s a hand. It took him a few seconds to realize Nadia was beside him, sleeping. He didn’t recall her sleeping with him. “Oh….,”
“Hrmm….,” Nadia wrapped her arms around his body and pulled him towards her. Ber

Siv smiled tossing the ball. It swirled on the rim and fell in. Siv smirked looking at Grant who growled, “No fucking fair. Your not suppose to be good at sports,” He whined acting like he was a kid. Siv tossed the ball to him, “Aww does baby need a bottle. I told you I could whoop your ass,” He said in a taunting manner. Grant hit him in the head with the ball, “Oh shut it Geek!” He grumbled. Siv snickered a little. Grant looked at him. Damn he’s so cute , He thought. Siv rubbed the back of his headed and smiled at Grant. The basketball player smiled back, “That was fun,” Siv said grabbing his bookbag. “But now I have to go. I have a shitload of homework to do,” He said waving and leaving without another word. Grant watched him leave smiling a little bit.
When Siv got home he was stopped by Brittany, “Sup’?” Brittany smirked. “Hey Brit. Finish your homework?” He asked. Brittany nodd
Attack on Titan x Reader - I'm in the Band (Ch. 6)Chapter Six: Commencement
As was the routine for the week, my phone’s alarm went off, waking me up, and a few minutes later it played Marco’s ringtone.
“I can’t believe we have to be up this early on a Saturday,” I grumbled into the phone.
“Aw, it’s not that early,” said Marco over the speaker.
I instinctively raised an eyebrow. “Is there still dew on the ground?”
“Well, yeah, I think so, but—”
“Then it is that early, Marcy.” I slid out of bed, feeling the chilly air from the AC hit my skin when I left the warmth of the covers. “You guys going to Chik-Fil-A this morning? I could use a pick-me-up.”
“Yeah,” he replied, a smile in his voice. “I’ll pick you up in a half hour, okay?”
“Now that we have the opener figured out,” Levi started as he took a sip of his tea, “does anyone have problems with the
Kile and Gib Role-Play: Revenge 3
Kile felt like his life line just snapped and he swallowed at his tightening throat. "..... You... don't hate me too much... right?" he asked quietly, bringing his knees to his chest as he wobbled in the air.
Gib stood up from the floor and then flopped back onto the couch. "I don't hate you, but that doesn't mean I don't want some fun in having a little bit of payback. But..." Gib rubbed at his face. "...I can't think of a way of tormenting you that I'd enjoy. I mean, I don't want to taste or eat you. That's just going to make me sick."
Kile sighed relief that Gib wasn't thinking on tasting him, that was one of the worst things he hated about being small. But when it did happen, most of the time nobody tasted him for long because they said he tasted too salty or he tasted like cabbage. He never mentioned that though of course. "Then what? Whatever it is just get it over with so I can change out of my clothes. I don't like being in soggy clothing." he g
A Strange Beauty: Chapter 2
Alex dug her nails into her scalp, she could not believe this. Why did nothing ever go right for her? First it was bullying, then it was the death of her parents, then masculosis, and now she becomes a girl!? This was too much to handle, Alex just sat on the hospital room floor rocking back and forth in a complete mental breakdown. Maria laid a hand on Alex's shoulder, "Alex..." "You should leave," Alex snapped, still shocked at the femininity of her new voice. Maria jerked her hand back, her eyes welling up with tears.
"How could you say that, Alex? What has Maria ever done to betray you?" Lucas looked at Alex with an offended glare.
"I'm not a guy anymore, why should Maria stick by my side?" Alex nearly choked on her words, she averted her gaze from everyone. "I'm sorry Maria, but I think our relationship is-" Before Alex could finish her sentence Maria grabbed Alex by the collar of her hospital gown (I looked it up) and before Alex knew what was going on her lips were locked with Ma
Races of TamrielTamriel is home to ten races of intelligent humanoids. Each hails from a different province of the Empire, each of which was originally a sovereign power unto itself. The races each have their own unique strengths and weaknesses which make them better suited to some tasks over others. Together, the races of Tamriel can be categorized into three main groups.
The Races of Man, or Humans, are short-lived and tend to hold a short-term point of view. However, the breadth of their powers have allowed them to subdue the other races.
The Races of Mer, or Elves, or the longest-lives and tend to regal airs. The elves of today are descendant from the mythic Aldmer, who first brought civilization to the barbaric humans of Tamriel.
The Races of Beast, or Beast Peoples, blend the characteristics of man and beast. They combine feral cunning with intellect in a very deadly way. However, they have been historically degraded by
ReflectionsVal's pursuit led him to the foul beast's domain. The hollowed-out cavern reeked of blood and rancid meat. The dim light he had seen as he charged through the tunnel after the monster could now be identified: torches. Rows of mysteriously lit torches lined the walls of the huge cave. At its center was a substantially large labyrinth of mirrors.
He spotted the beast entering.
He spun his silver broadsword in his hand and hurried in behind it.
His garb was a simple blue and white crusader's leather with thick armored pads and reinforcing steel studs. Lightweight and flexible, but quite effective defense against blunt blows and – in a pinch – the slashing claws of the unholy spawn of the earth. All monster-hunters wore a similar variety in Val's experience. It would serve him well in these close quarters of the mirrored maze.
Right, left, forward, left, right he turned, always catching a glimpse of the beast's tail as he wove his way through the corridors. Every so often he sp
