I'm currently playing in an Eberron campaign as a shifter monk. My question is how would a monk's unarmed attack damage interact with a shifter with the razorclaw trait? Would the damages stack? My character has the beasthide trait, but the question did come up. Any input would be appreciated.

Thanks in advance.

You'd probably get the favourable number of attacks though, and (assuming claws are slashing damage, 'cos I can't be bothered to check) you'd get them instead against something with a resistance against bludgeoning. Basically they'd overlap in the same way as spell resistance items/abilities.

Technically, I believe natural attacks cannot be used with the unarmed attack bonus/rate, but I personally disagree with that. I think that weapons such as claws should be allowed. Then again, can you really bite someone 4 times in 6 seconds? It'd be interesting if not silly to see.

I could see something like "only one hit per natural attack" or something. So, if you have 3 unarmed attacks and 2 claws, the 3rd hit would be your normal unarmed damage (as if it were a foot, elbow, etc.) Yeah, it is a hack solution and somewhat annoying, but I'll toss it out there anyway.

I'd not thought of bites I have to admit.
I think the way I'd end up calling it, I'd say certain natural attacks counted as monk weapons and others didn't; possibly not fair, but...

Just saying that's an awesome black dragon, what's that from?

The dragon is from one of my favorite artists, Jason Engle.

Same with the "ulatra", used here. He is an awesome artist. I bought a few of his works at GenCon last year. I should ask him what his policy is about people using things like that. I only use it for LJ. Great, thanks for making me feel guilty! ;) Now I have to go write him.
