Elves, Karpalima (3.5e Race)

Scales.png This page is of questionable balance. Reason: Changing the shapeshifting feature into a permanent ability is totally overpowered. It used to just be like disguise self, although real, but now its actually changing stats (large, huge, etc). This, and the 5e wording, need to be changed.

Racial Traits[edit]

  • Minor changeshape (Su): Karpalima elves have the ability to alter their appearance as though using a disguise self spell-like ability, this does not affect their possessions. This is not an illusory effect but a minor physical alteration of features. The karpalima elves can use this once per day and lasts until they choose to change again or are killed in which case they revert to their natural form. When in use this ability gives the karpalima elf a +10 circumstance bonus to disguise checks. Using this ability takes a short rest. (Altered from http://eberron.wikia.com/wiki/Changeling; see also SRD:Change Shape)
  • Spell-Like Ability: Can form permanent (see: SRD:permanency) telepathic bonds with other beings over time, this time may be decided by the DM but it is suggested that years are required for perfect communication while only weeks to months for basic emotions and short words.
