SPECIAL ABILITIES

Constructed (Ex)

For the purposes of effects targeting creatures by type (such as a ranger's favored enemy and bane weapons), androids count as both humanoids and constructs. Androids gain a +4 racial bonus on all saving throws against mind-affecting effects, paralysis, poison, and stun effects, are not subject to fatigue or exhaustion, and are immune to disease and sleep effects. Androids can never gain morale bonuses, and are immune to fear effects and all emotion-based effects.

Emotionless (Ex)

Androids have problems processing emotions properly, and thus take a –4 penalty on Sense Motive checks.

Nanite Surge (Ex)

An android's body is infused with nanites. Once per day as an immediate action, an android can cause her nanites to surge, granting a bonus equal to 3 + the android's character level on any one d20 roll; this ability must be activated before the roll is made. When an android uses this power, her circuitry-tattoos glow with light equivalent to that of a torch in illumination for 1 round.

Android Characters (16 RP)

Androids are defined by their class levels–they do not have racial Hit Dice. All androids have the following racial traits.

Standard Racial Traits

  • Ability Score Racial Traits Androids have swift reflexes and are very intelligent, but have difficulty relating to others. As a result, androids gain a +2 bonus to Dexterity and Intelligence, but suffer a –2 penalty to Charisma.
  • Languages: Androids begin play speaking Common. Androids with high Intelligence can choose any languages they want (except secret languages, such as Druidic).

Feat and Skill Racial Traits

  • Androids gain a +2 racial bonus on Perception checks.
  • Emotionless (–1 RP): Androids have problems processing emotions properly, and thus take a –4 penalty on Sense Motive checks.

Senses Racial Traits

Other Racial Traits

  • Constructed (2 RP): For the purposes of effects targeting creatures by type (such as a ranger's favored enemy and bane weapons), androids count as both humanoids and constructs. Androids gain a +4 racial bonus on all saving throws against mind-affecting effects, paralysis, poison, and stun effects, are not subject to fatigue or exhaustion, and are immune to disease and sleep effects. Androids can never gain morale bonuses, and are immune to fear effects and all emotion-based effects.
  • Emotionless (–1 RP): Androids have problems processing emotions properly, and thus take a –4 penalty on Sense Motive checks.
  • Nanite Surge (3 RP): An android's body is infused with nanites. Once per day as an immediate action, an android can cause her nanites to surge, granting a bonus equal to 3 + the android's character level on any one d20 roll; this ability must be activated before the roll is made. When an android uses this power, her circuitry-tattoos glow with light equivalent to that of a torch in illumination for 1 round.

ECOLOGY

Environment any
Organization solitary, pair, or platoon (3–12)
Treasure NPC gear (leather armor, rapier, other treasure)

Androids appear to be almost human, but these artificial wonders are of a completely foreign and utterly alien nature. Androids are created, not born, and come into the world fully mature. The strange, alien -forges- in which new androids are created are hidden in strange ruins, and most  have little to no memories of their "birth" places. Strange circuitry-like markings that look like faintly glowing tattoos, a faint metallic sheen to the eyes, and watery, almost translucent red blood are all ways to tell an android from a human–providing its awkward mannerisms haven't revealed the truth already.

A typical android is 6 feet tall and weighs 200 pounds.
