Fortune-Blessed Creature (CR +1)[3pp]


Get this book AND support this site!

Whether blessed by the gods or simply born lucky, some creatures seem to live charmed lives. They are the fortune-blessed, able to beat the odds time and time again.

Fortune-blessed creatures look like normal specimens of their kinds, but many exhibit an attitude of near-foolish overconfidence. Fortune-blessed creatures tend to be risk-takers, and they frequently act without thinking. More often than not, however, this same impulsive nature gets them out of whatever trouble it gets them into.

Creating a Fortune-Blessed Creature

Fortune-Blessed” is an acquired or inherited template that can be added to any creature (referred to hereafter as the base creature). A fortune-blessed creature uses all the base creature’s statistics and special abilities except as noted here.

Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +1.

Type: If the base creature is an outsider it gains the chaotic subtype.

Armor Class: A fortune-blessed creature gains a +2 luck bonus to Armor Class.

Special Attacks: A fortune-blessed creature retains all the base creature’s special attacks and gains those described here.

Augmented Criticals (Su)

The critical threat range of each of a fortune-blessed creature’s attacks doubles. The doubling follows the standard rules for doubling critical ranges and does not stack with other doubling effects, such as keen edge or the Improved Critical feat.

Lucky Strike (Su)

As a swift action, once per minute, a fortune-blessed creature can apply a true strike effect to a single attack.

Skills: A fortune-blessed creature gains a +2 luck bonus on all skills. This bonus stacks with the luck bonus it gains on opposed checks (see favored).

Special Qualities: A fortune-blessed creature retains all the base creature’s special qualities and gains those described here.

Favored (Ex)

A fortune-blessed creature gains a +2 luck bonus on all saves and opposed checks, and a +1 luck bonus on all attack rolls.

Turn of Fate (Su)

Once per day, a fortune-blessed creature can reroll any failed roll it has just made. It must accept the results of the second roll.
