Type of Feat: Class

Prerequisite: Shifter 10

Required for: None

Specifics: The character may shift into the creature forms (Large Dire Tiger, Medusa, Mindflayer) 3x/day. The shapes are replaced by stronger Epic versions at level 20.

Use: Selected

This form of shapeshifting cannot be dispelled.

Bonuses from weapons, armor, shield, helmet, boots, cloak and jewelry merge into all three shapes. Base (non-magical) AC from shields merge but not from armor. Bracer/gauntlet/glove properties merge except for attack bonuses and bonus damage. Off-hand weapon and ranged weapon properties never merge. Unlike in the original campaign, all AC bonuses merge, not just the highest.

Normal Forms receive :

 Cleave
 Weapon Finesse
 +16 Discipline

Epic Forms receive :

 Cleave
 Weapon Finesse
 +20 Discipline

Weapon focus feats now work with all forms that use weapons. Feats must be taken for the weapon the specific form wields to apply.

The following table denotes your new Strength, Dexterity and Constitution, Temporary Hitpoints, and an additional dodge AC bonus.
