StarEdit

Making a StarEdit

The star is very difficult to affect with spells, poisons, and traps thanks to her good saving throws and Mettle class feature. Although she is effective in range and melee, her damage output will usually be lower than a Monk or Fighter of the same level. Thanks to her speed and flight, the star makes a good scout and skirmisher, especially against enemies that fight with magic or status conditions.

Abilities: Charisma adds to a star's armor class, saves, and ranged damage, while good physical scores assist her in melee.

Races: Elves, Half-Elves, and those with fey blood commonly becomes stars.

Alignment: Any

Starting Gold: 2d6×10 gp.

Class FeaturesEdit

All of the following are class features of the star.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A star is not proficient with any weapons or armor.

Invocations: Starting at 1st level and every odd numbered level after that, the star learns an invocation from the following list. These powers may augment her Star Bolt ability, unarmed strike, or other unique power. All invocations have a level requirement, while some may have additional prerequisites.

Unarmed Strike (Ex): A star gains the Monk’s unarmed strike ability except that she deals less damage, beginning with 1d4 at first level and improved one step every four levels.

Star Bolt (Su): A star can fire a supernatural bolt of energy at will as an attack action (gaining additional bolts with her iterative attacks). The bolt deals damage equal to the Comet’s unarmed strike + positive Charisma modifier. It does not provoke attacks of opportunity and ignores spell resistance. The bolt has a range increment of 60ft.

Corona (Su): While not wearing armor, a Star gains a Deflection bonus to AC equal to her Charisma modifier. Her skin gives off a faint glow, providing light as a candle. As a result, she also takes a penalty on Stealth checks equal to her Charisma modifier unless heavily clothed.

Mettle (Ex): At 2nd level, whenever the star would be subject to a partial effect on a successful Fortitude or Will save, she instead suffers no effect whatsoever.

Falling Star (Su): At 2nd level the star naturally resists gravity and is always under a Feather Fall effect. This functions even while the star is unconscious or otherwise disabled and activates automatically.

Solar Wind (Su): At 3rd level the star can move supernaturally fast once per day, enabling her to take an additional move action as a Swift Action, in addition to whatever actions she took that round. She gains additional uses of this ability every four levels.

Lucky Star (Su): At 4th level the star adds her Charisma modifier as a luck bonus to all saving throws. This bonus cannot be greater than 1/3rd of her level, even if her Charisma modifier is higher.

Rising Star (Su): At 5th level the star gains the ability to Levitate at will as a supernatural ability.

Celestial Body (Ex): At 6th level the star no longer needs to eat or drink and becomes immune to all natural poisons.

Shooting Star (Su): At 8th level the star gains a Fly speed with perfect maneuverability equal to her land speed.

Improved Mettle (Ex): At 9th level, as per the Improved Evasion ability, but applying only to Fortitude and Will saves.

Star Dust (Su): At 12th level the star gains spell resistance equal to her class level + 10

Astral Body (Ex): At 13th level the star no longer needs to sleep and becomes immune to all natural diseases.

Timeless Body (Ex): At 17th level, a star no longer takes penalties to her ability scores for aging and cannot be magically aged. Any such penalties that she has already taken, however, remain in place. Age bonuses still accrue, and the star still dies of old age when her time is up.

Heavenly Body (Ex): At 20th level the star no longer needs to breathe and becomes completely immune to natural cold and heat, allowing her to survive in space and similar hostile environments. She is now considered a native Outsider.
