The Mold prestige class

Here it is, my first attempt at the mold template... Please tear it up and put it back together
xposted to d20games



Creating a mold creature

"mold" is a template that can be added to any corporeal animal, beast, humanoid, monstrous

humanoid, or giant. (referred to hereafter as the "base creature"). The creatures type

changes to "plant". It uses all the base creatures statistics and special abilities except

as noted below.

Hit dice: Changes to d8


Speed: As base creature
AC: The base creature gains a natural armor bonus of +1(note that any armor made of leather

or other animal parts will break down rapidly and be unusable in 1d4 days)

attacks: As base creature

Damage: As base creature

Special attacks:
Create Spawn(ex): Any creature reduced to -1 or lower hit points begins the process of

becoming a mold spawn. In 24 hours the creature will rise as a mold spawn. To avoid this the victim must be brought to 1 or more hit points and be the recipiant one of the following

spells: Remove disease, limited wish, wish, miracle (the remove disease paladin ability also works)

Special Qualities:
Plant: immune to poison, sleep, paralysis, sunning and polymorphing. They are not subject

to critical hits or mind-influencing effects(charms, compulsions, phantasms, patterns and

morale effects).
Low light vision(ex): The mold creature can see twice as far in low to normal light levels.
Damage reduction: 10/slashing or piercing. Mold men take little if any damage from blunt

weapons
Resistance to energy: 15/cold, 15 elect.
Vulnerability to fire: Mold creatures take double damage from fire and fire spells and

effects
Create equipment(su): A mold creature need not pay the gp cost for items, magical items,

and other equipment they craft, provided it can be made out of hardened mold. Most mold

humanoids and monstrous humanoids make their weapons and armor from mold they have made

themselves.
Tremorsense(ex): A Mold creature can sense creatures 30 feet away or less. This is also how they communicate
Speechless: Mold creatures cannot speak in the traditional sense. Any spells or spell like abilities which require verbal components cannot be used (except with the silent spell feat or it's like)

Saves: As base creature. In addition, mold creatures recieve a +2 racial bonus to their

fortitude saves

Abilities: as base creature

Skills: Mold creatures receive a +2 racial bonus to move silently, craft arms(mold only), and craft weapons(mold only)

feats: Same as base creature
------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Climate/terrain: Any land or underground
Organization: Solitary, group(6) or clan(20+)
Challenge rating: Same as base creature +2
treasure: Standard
Alignment: Always Neutral
Advancement: by character class
