Changeling Paragon (3.5e Racial Paragon Class)
From D&D Wiki
The Changeling who focuses on her mutable body becomes a Changeling Paragon, a Changeling who is even more capable of manipulating her body and even her immediate clothing, to better immerse herself in disguise and deception. Her mind becomes nearly fully empathatic in social situations and her subterfuge abilities increase in bounds.
Making a Changeling Paragon
A Changeling Paragon is capable of being one of the social elite or even being a lowly peasant. They become as chameleons in the social hierarchy, their tongues are silvered and they know how to react when to react.
Abilities: Intelligence and Charisma are important abilities for the socalites of the Changeling society. They can use the extra skill points from a high intelligence to improve their skills or use their charisma to work well in social situations.

Class Skills (8 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Changeling Paragon.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Changeling paragons are proficient with all simple weapons and with light armor. In addition, a changeling paragon is proficient with any one martial weapon of his choice.
Spellcasting: At 2nd level, a changeling gains new spells per day and new spells known as if she had gained a level in bard. The paragon does not, however, gain any other benefit a character of that class would have gained (bardic music, and so on). This essentially means that the character adds the level of changeling paragon to her level in bard, then determines spells per day, spells known and caster level accordingly.
If the Changeling Paragon has no levels in Bard, he gains +1d6 Sneak Attack instead of an additional level in Bard casting.
Changeweave (Su): At 1st level, a Changeling Paragon's body begins to become more mutable and even capable of manipulating her immediate clothing. A Changeling Paragon may designate one set of clothing, mundane or magical (but not any metal or wooden clothing), as a Changeweave set of clothing. Whenever a Changeling Paragon uses Minor Shape Change, she can alter the appearance of her clothing as well; including material, design, colour and size (like Disguise Self). It still retains any magical or armour properties it did before. Using this gives you an additional +5 to the bonus to Disguise granted by Minor Change Shape.
World Tongue (Ex): At 1st level, a Changeling Paragons flair for languages improves. Whenever they spend a skill point to acquire a new language with the Speak Language skill, they may instead pick two languages. In addition, they may make Decipher Script skill checks untrained. These bonus languages are not retroactive.
Empathetic Mind (Ex): At 2nd level, a Changeling Paragons understanding of the emotions of others begins to become even greater. A Changeling Paragon may add her Changeling Paragon class level as a racial bonus to all Bluff, Intimidate and Sense Motive checks. This bonus stacks with the +2 racial bonus changelings recieve.
Size Alteration (Su): At 2nd level, a Changeling Paragon's body becomes even more mutable. The Changeling Paragon can increase or decrease her size by one category when using Minor Change Shape, as though using reduce person and enlarge person except it only affects you. You do not gain the ability modifiers (but do gain size modifiers) and it lasts for as long as you want. Your equipment worn or carried is not enlarged, except for your Changeweave garment (which also changes size), Rings and any Wondrous Items.
Ability Boost (Ex): At 3rd level, a Changeling Paragon may gain a +2 bonus to any one of her ability scores.
