Challenge Rating[edit]

Base CR +4






By Character Class or HD

Level Adjustment[edit]


Template as a Class. If you do not want to take a standard class you can continue to gain mutant abilities, so long as they do not overlap (unless rolled: for example if you get Super Strength you can get it again so long as you get the 99-100% mark getting a +30 to strength. However somethings don't stack. Gaining the DR again will not double your DR range, same goes for SR. Gaining the Psionics abilities will not grant more psionics, but can level you as per a Psion. You can gain SU or EA ability multiple times so long as the SU or EA selected doesn't overlap. In some cases you can gain more than one type of the same SU or EX ability, such as Control Water and Control Fire...)

In this case, when it is time for you to level, you can do one of two things: Roll for a new ability, or expand on an ability you already have. The later of course is for expansion on things like Psionics, where you progress further along in the Psion class (without class features) to gain more psionics, power points, and high level psionic abilities. Either way you increase your LA by 1, gaining an HD and 4+int for skill points.
