Class Skills (2 + Int modifier per level)
Like all members of the Church of Modroben, Hightombed are expected to be neutral in most affairs (excepting only the defense of death, time and fate). Their class features should not be used except in the manner of church business and in direct self-defense. It is very rare for Hightombed powers to be used against anyone other than undead creatures or necromancers. All of the following are class features of the Hightombed:
Gust of Wind: Hightombed may cast Gust of Wind at will.
Mummify: Hightombed may enact Mummify a number of times per day equal to his character level.
Shape of the Pigeon: At second level, Hightombed may shapechange into a pigeon one time per day. This is simply one ordinary pigeon.
- At fourth level, Hightombed may shapechange into a flock of Celestial Pigeons one time per day. The flock consists of 20 individuals with a hive mind. They each have 25 hit points and a +5 attack bonus/+15 against evil, undead and necromantic targets. Make only one attack roll a round, doing 2d12+2 damage. Each individual has an AC of 24. The flock as a whole has a Reflex bonus of +10.
Air Walk: At third level, Hightombed may cast Air Walk once per day per Hightombed level.
- At ninth level, Hightombed can cast Air Walk once per day and it will last all day.
Control Winds: At sixth level, Hightombed can cast Control Winds three times per day.
