 Creating an Evolved Creature
Evolved is an inherited template, that can be added to any animal or vermin. It can be applied to any monster that is not bipedal and has an intelligence 6 or lower as well.
 Size and Type
The creature's type changes to Humanoid, do not recaluclate Hit Dice, BAB or Saves, however, skill points are recalculated.
 Hit Dice
Any fractal racial Hit Dice the creature had are no longer applicable, however any saves, skill points, or base attack bonus granted by these Hit Dice remain.
The creature's base land speed increases by 10ft, to a maximum of 40ft + 10 feet for each size catagory above medium, minus 10ft for each size catagory below medium.
 Armor Class
The creature's natural armor decreases by 1 if it does not reside in mountains, underground environments, or water, but other then that, there are no changes.
The base creature gains the Ability to use manufactured weapons, but, it loses any attacks that focus on the hands (claws, paws, etc.).
 Full Attack
An Evolved creature uses it's manufactured weapons (if any) as a primary attack, and it's natural weapons (if any) as a secondary.
 Special Attacks
The creature doesn't gain or lose any special attacks.
 Special Qualities
The creature doesn't gain or lose any special qualities.
Intelligence +10 Charisma +4 Wisdom +4, these scores are not rolled in the case of characters, they are instead the base creature's with the added bonus. This is in order to create smart animals, and allow them to become functional characters.
The Base Creature's skills remain as normal.
No feats are gained or lost as a result of this template, unless they relate to the use of claws (creatures that gain claws from a source other then their base race, do not loose claw-based feats) or are creature feats (scent, flyby attack, etc.).
Same as base creature, however evolved creatures tend to build vilages or towns in these areas.
Same as base creature, unless the largest group is less than twenty people. They then tend to group in small cities or live side-by-side another race in a foreign land.
 Challenge Rating
