In addition to choosing one of the above enhancements, you gain two of the following abilities of your choice. You cannot choose the same ability twice:

  • A climb speed of 60 feet.
  • A swim speed of 60 feet.
  • A burrow speed of 30 feet.
  • +4 natural armor bonus.
  • Any two abilities from lesser alter form. You cannot choose the same ability twice.

Overload: For every runic charge overloaded into this script, you can choose from different abilities, based on the runic charge used:

  • Alteration: Damage Reduction 5/adamantine.
  • Creation: Fast healing 5.
  • Destruction: Natural attacks you have gain the benefit of the Improved Critical feat, even if you don’t meet the prerequisites.
  • Invocation: Energy resistance 20 to your choice of either acid, cold, electricity, or fire damage.
  • Manipulation: Increase base land speed by 30 feet.
  • Revelation: Blindsense 30 feet.

You can also choose the overload effect from lesser alter form that corresponds to the same charge design. In addition, for every two runic charges overloaded into this script, you gain an additional ability.
