One of your ancestors was enslaved or wounded by ghouls but survived the sickness. That dark power now fortifies you.
Class Skill(s): Knowledge (dungeoneering).
Bonus Spells: cause fear (3rd), command undead (5th), halt undead (7th), contagion (ghoul fever) (9th), wave of fatigue (11th), create undead (13th), control undead (15th), create greater undead (17th), raise undead host* (19th).
Bloodline Arcana: Whenever you cast a spell against a creature with the undead type, increase the DC by 2.
Bloodline Powers: The power of the undead courses through your veins until, eventually, you gain mastery over your life force itself.
At 1st level, you can make a melee touch attack that causes a living creature to become sickened for a number of rounds equal to half your sorcerer level (minimum 1). If you touch a sickened creature, it becomes nauseated for 1 round if it has fewer levels or Hit Dice than your sorcerer level. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
You also gain darkvision to 30 ft.
You also gain Stealthy as a bonus feat.
At 9th level, you can make a melee touch attack that immobilizes a living creature for a number of rounds equal to half your sorcerer level (minimum 1; DC 10 + your sorcerer level). You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Charisma modifier.
Your darkvision also increases to 60 ft.
At 15th level, you gain the ability to spray spittle infected with ghoul fever in a cone- shaped area to a distance of 15 ft. three times per day. The spittle causes 1d8 hp damage, 1 Constitution damage, and 1 Dexterity damage immediately (a DC 16 Fortitude save negates the ability score losses).
All affected targets that fail their Fortitude saves become infected with ghoul fever.
At 20th level, your ghoulish nature manifests itself fully. You no longer have a pulse or a body temperature. You gain immunity to cold, poison, paralysis, and sleep. Ghouls, ghasts and other intelligent undead consider you one of them unless you attack them, although your creature type does not change to undead.
