Something Really Silly. Just Saiyan, [Race & Class]

SAYIAN CUSTOM CLASSES The hairy Saiyan race was magically bred from a cross of men, were-apes, and giant apes long ago by unknown arcanists. They proved a formidable race, and Sayians once held the entirety of the Saru region in their hairy fingers. Such was their power that primitive man worshiped them as gods and served them as slaves. Yet from this height, the Sayian people fell to abyssal lows. Some taint in the Sayian bloodline caused them to slowly degenerate into Insidious Pride. Had they been wiser and less warlike the Sayians might have slipped into obscurity peacefully. Instead they were violently overthrown by the Zaharans, who seized power from their former masters and formed their own dark empire. Most of the Sayian race was slaughtered in the Zaharan uprising. Of the few that survived, most fled to the outlying  jungles, where they continued their devolution to the primitive apemen of today. But here and there, a few Sayians were captured and enslaved by their former servants. These hapless Sayians were bred with each other to form a pool of laborers and soldiers. The Zaharans soon discovered that the degeneration of the Sayian bloodline was ubiquitous. The brood of even the most cunning Sayian warriors was frequently dim-witted and often weak. In order to maintain their Sayian stock, the Zaharan arcanists began to crossbreed their Sayians with fresh bloodlines of humans, generally prisoners of war. The resulting hybrids would, for a generation or two, regain some of the vigor and cunning of the Sayians of old. Centuries of such efforts led to an array of different Sayian bloodlines, ranging from creatures that were almost human to monstrosities resembling the ancient Sayians. These breeding programs were eventually abandoned in favor of the superior races of beastmen that fought in the Empyrean War – orcs, bugbears, ogres, and similar humanoids. Most civilized lands remember Sayians as stories to frighten children, and look on apemen with contempt as brutes. Only in dusky Kemesh, untouched by the Empyrean War, are Sayian slaves of the old stock still kept in any number. There it is a mark of opulence and power to be able to maintain a Sayian of good bloodline, and to field them as pitfighters in the gladiatorial games.

 

Sayian character classes are created using the Sayian racial category and experience points.

 

Requirements, class category values, hit points per level after 9th, and experience point progressions are modified as noted below.

 

REQUIREMENTS All Sayian classes require a minimum Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution of 9 or better.

 

CLASS CATEGORY VALUES Fighting: The build points allocated to the class’s Fighting Value may be increased by 1 or 2 points by the Sayian Value (see below). Use the effective values to find the class’s fighting abilities, up to a maximum of 4 points.

Divine: Sayians may not have a Divine Value higher than 2, unless they have a Sayian Value of 4.

Arcane: Sayians may not have an Arcane Value higher than 3, unless they have a Sayian Value of 4.

KI: The Saiyans have a form of magic only known to them that they initially know. They use this magic from a mix of natural power and marital arts.

 

A Saiyan warrior can spend Ki points as a free action to:

 

Reduce damage taken by 1 per point spent min 0
Increase armor by 1 per 3 points spent from ranged attacks

Attack with a Ki blast that deals 1d2 points of energy damage per 3 points of KI spent. Ranged attack required, no range penalty, max distance 10 feet per level.

Increase flying speed by 10 feet per 5 points spent for an hour


If you are honestly thinking of using this class then replace what I have of the KI and look at the magus class in the download section of the site and work with half the points or something like that. It would be a better version of what the Z fighters can do with their Ki then what I have down now. I only honestly added it so I could have KI blasts. 

 

What do people think? It was just a stupid idea I've been kicking around since I made my first post on the forum and didn't know any better. It was a lot easier to reskin and tinker with the Thrassian than coming up with something else all together so thank you Alex.
