Racial Traits[edit]

  • +4 Charisma, +2 Dexterity and Intelligence and -2 Strength: Pooka are very social people due to being natural bards. They also are nimble enough to cling on to walls to give flare to their own show. Remembering all of the words to their 3 hour shows requires a great memory. When harnessing and making their voice more powerful, they lost interest in using weapons.
  • Magical Humanoid: Pooka are better than normal humanoids, due to having some Elvish blood and natural magical talent.
  • Medium: No Size Bonuses
  • Pooka base land speed is 40 feet: Flight: 90 Swim: 20
  • Flight (Sp): Pooka can fly with wings that can be summoned and dismissed at will, but cannot fly for more than 10 minutes. They have good maneuverability with these wings and have a flight speed of 90. They must attempt to fly outside, outside of combat as well. They must try three times before they can fly, and there must be 2 hours between attempts. They can fly only under Sun/Moon light. They keep these wings until their death. These wings are Golden. These wings make a noise that a DC 15 Listen Check Hears.
  • Music Magic (Sp): Pooka can use their voice as a weapon itself. They can attack for 1d8 twice as under the Twin Strike Feat. They can, for a Full Round Action, protect themselves to absorb half of their damage if they hit. As a last ability, they can attempt to control the other enemy. It is an attack roll +BaB and + Cha, vs their will save. If dominated, they are under your control for 1d6+2 rounds.
  • Performance Containment (Sp): At Level 3, a Pooka can contain spells in flasks and vials for later use. Once needed, they can uncap the product to produce its effect (Effects: Damage, Protection, Domination, and Healing >10 Health<). You must prepare these out of combat and it takes half an hour. They can be used at anytime.
  • Automatic Languages: Common and Elvish. Bonus Languages: All except Secret Languages (Druidic).
  • Favored Class: Bard
  • Level Adjustment: +1
