Chimeric Monster Subtype

8 November, 2010

Chimeric [Subtype]

A chimeric being is a hybrid creature made from blending together aspects of other creatures.  Some are created by sorcerous experiments, other emerge spontaneously from unknown sources.

•    Final Form– For whatever reason, the chimeric being’s form is the end and final result of many changes and it has no wish to change again, it gains a +4 racial bonus to resist any attempt to further change or weaken its form (including but not limited to polymorph).
•    Hybrid Health– A chimeric creature is full of surprising vigor, gaining a +2 racial bonus to resist disease and poisons and heals at twice the rate of a normal creature.
•    Obsession with a Food– Each chimeric creature has a particular food that it desires above all others.  A chimeric being will go out of its way to obtain such.  A trainer who has access to such food may gain a +2 bonus on their Animal Handling checks when training a captive chimeric beast.

Notes: Since I am having fun playing with chemeric monsters, I thought that they needed their own subtype.  Obviously this would be applicable to chimera, hippogriff, owlbear and such monsters.

Chemeric creatures created for this design journal include: MothLion, StagWolf and Sting Squirrel.
