    Perception +7, Profession +6, Stealth +7, Swim +7
Race SQ healing factor 2, psionic aptitude
Class SQ covert training
Languages Celestial, Common, Infernal, Undercommon

SPECIAL ABILITIES

Empowered Strikes (Su): At 1st level, the deadly fist can, as a move action, wreath his body in psionic energy distilled from his own mind. This energy lasts until the deadly fist chooses to dismiss it as a free action. When empowered strikes is active, the deadly fists's unarmed strikes deal 1d6 points of damage if Medium-sized (or your normal unarmed strike damage, if higher) and are considered to be magic weapons for the purposes of overcoming damage reduction. Adjust unarmed damage if the deadly fist is a size other than Medium.
    This effect is similar to a mind blade, except the deadly fist cannot change the form of empowered strikes, although he can change the damage type of his attacks between bludgeoning, piercing, and slashing, just like a normal soulknife. This effect cannot be broken like a mind blade, and it is still considered to be unarmed attacks instead of a weapon.
    In all other ways, empowered strikes functions as a mind blade.
    This replaces the Form Mind Blade class feature, but counts as Form Mind Blade for prerequisites or requirements.

Psychokinetic Discharge (Su): A deadly fist of 1st level learns how to take the energy he has charged into his unarmed strikes and release it as a blast of energy at an opponent. As a ranged attack, the deadly fist can make an unarmed attack at an opponent. The attack deals damage as normal for the deadly fist's unarmed attacks.
    The range increment of the attack is 10', but is considered to be a projectile instead of a thrown weapon, so the attack has a maximum range of 10 increments instead of 5. Whether or not the attack hits, the deadly fist's unarmed attacks are no longer empowered and he must take the normal time to empower them.
    This ability replaces the Throw Mind Blade class feature.

Healing Factor 2: ProtoXETA naturally recover hit points and ability score points (lost to ability damage) at twice the normal rate when resting or subject to uses of the Heal skill.

Monastic Protocol: ProtoXETA gain the Unarmed Strike class feature of a 1st-level monk, which includes Improved Unarmed Strike as a racial bonus feat. If they acquire that same feature from class levels, they instead gain a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls with unarmed strikes. (2 RP)

Weapons Protocol: At each level, protoXETA gain proficiency with a single weapon they choose, provided they haven't already chosen that weapon for this ability. If proficient with that weapon by any other extraordinary means, they instead gain a +1 racial bonus on attack rolls made with it. (2 RP)

Plush Sapien Race

Still under construction.

The plush sapien race featured below, is inspired by various online images of teddy bears wielding medieval arms and armor to defend sleeping children from hulking monsters that eclipse the background.

Plush sapiens are living beings created by powerful magic, usually applied to stuffed toys with a generalized humanoid form composed of fabric and various inanimate components. Each one is greatly transformed and organized into an autonomous self-sustaining living creature, otherwise reflective of its creator's subconscious impressions of its previously inanimate form. Any stitching and seams they possess heal over upon transformation, only to fade and blend into the whole of their form.

Plush Sapien Racial Traits (10 RP)

This means they can drink potions to benefit from their effects and can sleep in order to regain spells, but neither of these activities is required for them to survive or stay in good health. In addition, they take no penalty to their physical ability scores from aging. Their living souls burn like stars within, growing brighter with age until they expire and quietly consume their physical remains in a flicker of light before passing on. (4 RP?)

Necropotent Impetus: Plush sapiens that acquire the undead type, gain fast healing 1. (0 RP)

Ambiguous Anima: Plush sapiens gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws when targeted as a construct. They also gain a +2 racial bonus on all saving throws and ability checks against all effects, conditions, forces and events to which constructs are usually immune or not subject by default. (2 RP)

Artificial Anima: Plush sapiens that acquire the actual construct type, lose the the Ambiguous Anima trait and instead gain fast healing 1 along with a number of hit points equal to their Hit Dice. (0 RP)

Insulated: Against plush sapiens in true form, damage dealt by diffuse blunt trauma via battering, buffeting, compression, constriction, crushing, falling, impact collisions, shockwaves or trampling is halved and rounded down. (1 RP)

Flammable: Plush sapiens in true form, have vulnerability to fire. (–1 RP)

Protoss Race

Still under construction.

The protoss race featured below, is inspired by Starcraft.

Protoss Racial Traits (10 RP)

+2 Strength, +2 to One Mental Ability Score: Protoss are physically powerful and gain a +2 racial bonus to one mental ability score of their choice at creation to represent the varied nature of their kind. (2 RP)

Humanoid (Aberrant): Protoss are humanoids with the aberrant subtype.

Medium: Protoss are medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.

Normal Speed: Protoss have a base speed of 30 feet.

Low-Light Vision: Protoss can see twice as far as a race with normal vision in conditions of dim light. (1 RP)

Psitech Expertise: Protoss gain Technologist as a racial bonus feat. In addition, Knowledge (engineering, psionics) are always class skills for them, and they gain a +1 racial bonus on skill checks with each of those they gain as a class skill from any other source. (3 RP)

Aberrant Physiology: Protoss are bereft of the ears, nostrils and mouth typical of most humanoids. Their scaled semi-permeable skin enables them to hear, smell, breathe, absorb moisture and derive sustenance from a broad portion of the electromagnetic spectrum. Protoss lacking sufficient atmosphere, moisture or radiation, suffer the effects of suffocation, thirst or starvation at the same rate as a typical humanoid. Protoss skin naturally seals itself against harmful atmospheric conditions and external liquids, allowing them to hold their breath as much as other humanoids can. By necessity, protoss have also developed the following supernatural abilities. (1 RP?)
  • Broadcast Telepathy (Su): Protoss can send out telepathic messages in any language they know, for other creatures to receive within any range up to 50 feet + 5 feet per character level. In so doing, one can include or exclude from this broadcast any creature they can see, as well as any creature they know or know of. This communication is strictly a one-way exchange from the sender to each recipient. Any recipient lacking the language used, “hears” meaningless mental syllables.
  • Psychovocalize (Su): With the same time and effort a human requires to vocalize, each protoss may create sound (as the power) with instantaneous effect to produce their own unique human voice from him or herself as the point of origin. Any voice this ability creates may be used to produce verbal components for casting spells and command words for activating items.
  • Psychometabolize (Su): With the same time and effort a human requires to eat and drink, a protoss can psionically taste or absorb edible substances they possess on contact with their skin. This allows them to benefit from magical food and potions, but also exposes them to possibility of ingested poisons.

Naturally Psionic: Protoss receive Wild Talent as a bonus feat at 1st level. If they gain levels in a psionic class, they gain the Psionic Talent feat instead. (2 RP)

Psionic Aptitude: When a protoss takes a level in a favored class, he or she can choose to gain an additional power point instead of a hit point or skill point.

Languages: Protoss begin play knowing Khalani and Common. Protoss with high Intelligence scores can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic). (1 RP)
