1st-8th Level Spells - Elite Jonin or Sanin
1st-9th Level Spells - Any Kage
Too Fast By Half (Ex): The Shinobi multiplies her base speed by 1.5 (round down), particularly when doing a "Ninja run" pose. A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Wall Jump (Ex): Shinobi are great at using the walls to propel themselves. Not only does she suffer no falling damage when next to a wall, she may also double her jumping height and distance when starting off next to a wall, and if between two walls, gains a Climb speed equal to her land speed. A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Ninja'd (Ex): Shinobi always seize the initiative at the last moment and do things before anyone else can react. In combat, if there is no Surprise round, the Shinobi gains her own Surprise round. If there IS a Surprise round, the Shinobi can act in it, following initiative. If there are multiple Shinobi in the fight, they act simultaneously at the beginning of the surprise round. A multiclassed Shinobi can only access this ability if she possesses more levels of Shinobi than any other class.
Invisible (Su): As a standard action, the Shinobi may become Invisible at will, as per the spell.
Dark Stalker (Ex): The Shinobi can see and hear incorporeal/ethereal creatures normally, so they must make Hide/Move Silently checks to sneak up on her.
Summon Slug (Ex): The Shinobi can summon a slug on an ally allowing her to cast touch spells on them up to 50' away. The number of slugs she can summon is increased by 1 every 4 Shinobi levels. If the slugs are sliced, bludgeoned, or pierced they will split into two slugs. This can continue infinitely.
Master of Disguise (Su): With a DC 15 Disguise check, a Shinobi can effectively cast disguise self. With a DC 20 check, she can effectively cast alter self.
Summon Mist (Su): Mist is a Shinobi's best friend. She can call upon it, as per the spell obscuring mist, at will, though only one such effect can be active at a time.
Double Jump (Ex): Shinobi double the height and distance result of any jump check. This stacks with the distance gained from the Wall Jump ability. A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Join the Clan (Ex): The Shinobi becomes a member of a very secret Shinobi clan. As benefits, she can call upon their assistance for information, and is taught the secret techniques: she may cast knock, detect traps, and identify as Spell-like abilities at will. These only require swift actions to cast, however.
Scurry (Ex): The Shinobi is great at moving about in all situations. She may move at regular speed while being stealthy, and does not suffer penalties for difficult terrain. A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Log Trick (Ex): Just when you think you have a Shinobi, you actually have a log. The Shinobi is behind you. As an Immediate action, the Shinobi may Dimension Door to any location up to 30' away, leaving a puff of smoke and a wooden log behind. Additionally, she may spend a Standard Action to Dimension Door 30' away, leaving a Mirror Image behind for 4 rounds. When the image ends, a log appears. A ninja must be able to move freely to use this ability. Limit 1/encounter.
Shinobi Swiftness (Ex): During a surprise round, the Shinobi may perform a full round action instead of just a partial one.
2nd Hokage's Forbidden Jutsu: Reanimation (Sp): The Shinobi can now use the spell Raise Dead.
Master of Escape (Ex): The Shinobi can never be pinned down. Any Escape Artist check may be made as a Standard action that does not provoke, and she may make Epic checks at the following DCs: Extremely Tight Space (a chimney, a glass jar, someone's anus) DC 30, Walls of Force DC 40 or Caster Level + 5, whichever is higher. She also gains a +8 bonus to escape a grapple. None of this applies when wearing heavy armour or when heavily encumbered.
Flying Thunder God Technique (Ex): The Shinobi learns the teleportation technique of the second and fourth hokage. She may place a kunai with an inscription on it anywhere and return to that spot as a move action. Anyone she is touching when she teleports is taken with her. She can also reverse summon the kunai back to her, but if anyone is touching it they will be brought to her location. The Shinobi is only strong enough to support 1 kunai at a time, until at 20th level she gets 2 more.
Orochimaru's Forbidden Jutsu: Reanimation (Sp): You have increased the power of you raise dead spell and can now cast Resurrection.
Transformation Jutsu (Su): The Shinobi may, with a DC 35 Disguise check, Polymorph as per the spell. True Seeing does not trump this. A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Perpetual Distraction (Su): People are always distracted while fighting the Shinobi. She always counts as flanking enemies. This is a mind-affection ability which functions when wearing no armour, or Light armour that provides no ACP and has a Max Dex of +8 or more. Does not function if she is more than Lightly encumbered.
Disregard Me (Ex): The Shinobi gains the ability to not be noticed. It becomes impossible to detect her with Divination unless she wants to be, and she never provokes Attacks of Opportunity. Likewise enemies can't use readied actions against her. However, if an enemy has an ability that lets them take Attacks of Opportunity on someone who hasn't provoked, or lets them force foes to provoke, it still works against her.
Kabuto's Forbidden Jutsu: Edo Tensei (Sp): The Shinobi has mastered her skill of raising the dead. She can now cast the spell True Resurrection, which is Resurrection, but she doesn't need the remains.
Time-Space Jutsu (Sp): The Shinobi learns the spell Gate, which connects two planes for travel or summon.
Clan Master (Ex): The Shinobi becomes the master of her clan, gaining the final secret arts: she gains Immunity to a single school of magic of her choice, and ceases aging, though bonuses will still accrue. Additionally her Int, Wis and Cha scores all increase by +4.
Fully Too Fast (Ex): The speed of the Shinobi now increases to double the base speed. Additionally, she may move as though by teleportation, ignoring all barriers and such, and leaves a thunderclap behind when doing this. The thunderclap affects all within 10' of where she previously stood, knocking them Prone and Dazing them for one round if they fail a Fort save (Dex-based DC). A Shinobi must be able to move freely to use this ability.
Spirit Transformation Technique (Sp): If the Shinobi would die, her soul becomes ethereal and she is able to consciously travel anywhere in the blink of an eye and communicate with anyone. Unless her body is destroyed or her soul is sealed away she will return to her body in 24 hours.
Shinobi vows are very serious and anyone who would leave their village or clan could carry secrets with them. These people are known as rogue ninjas and are hunted by an elite squadron of Shinobi that specialize in tracking and assassination.
