The item which grants you the Protean subrace allows you to make a single Protean character (this means you must have one Protean-granter for each Protean you wish to make; it is not reusable like other subraces).
After creating a Protean, you will be able to select the subrace's abilities. Reincarnating a Protean does not allow you to re-morph the abilities, but does allow you to alter the character's build.
Abilities: You may select from one of the below ability spreads:
+6, +4, +2, -2
+4, +4, +4
+4, +4, +4, +2, -2
+4, +4, +2, +2
Packages: Select one of the following:
One package from List A and one package from List D
One package from List B and one package from List C
One package from List C and two packages from List D
Three packages from List D
Great Ability I/II in a single ability
SF/GSF in a single school
Spell Penetration / Greater Spell Penetration
WF/EWF with a single weapon
Lingering Song / Lasting Inspiration
ESF with a single skill
One pre-epic save feat
One survival ability (e.g. levitation/water breathing)
+10 to a single skill at level 1 (not including UMD, Perform, or Animal Empathy; may not select Lore if your subrace has both Dexterity and Strength bonuses)
this looks great especially if it would allow the use of gold dragon wings like the idea of wings and tail having a price, you can max your toon or look cool reminds me of a suggestion for priceless subbies in an old thread
call it paragon, hell has enough of those, time for some pay back
One thing would it be a better idea to maybe break down feats into Tiers where List A would be 2 Feats from 1st Tiers List B 2 Feats from 2nd Tier and List C 1 Feat from 3rd Tier. Since I think Levitation and Water Breathing don't show as feats they could just be additional options on List C and then I don't think I would change List D.
I'd like the option to choose size, as the large size sub options are very limited at the moment..and Im really looking forward to some Huge size weapons ^_^
Yes I omited that I agree adding size to one of the list would be good as that was a factor for choosing race in my initial WM build.
I would maybe add size change to Large on List C or D though since it may need a model change perhaps create a set of models that would be Large and selectable via the PC Scry Device with a defualt set to something simple but appropiate. I also think add to one of the List C or higher damage type immunities limiting Physical and Exotic to lower or on a higher Tier then Elemental.
I like it but I dislike it too. We wouldn't ever need new subraces, just collect these tokens, although normal subraces do have the benefit of being reusable. In fact, new subraces would compete with this one in loot drop chances...
