A race of floating lamb-like humanoids who specializes in magery.
Origin: Heavenstrike Rivals

Standard Racial Traits

  • Ability Score Racial Traits: Lambkins are both intelligent and wise, but also a bit weak. They gain +2 Intelligence, +2 Wisdom, and –2 Constitution.
  • Size: Lambkins are Small creatures and thus gain a +1 size bonus to their AC, a +1 size bonus on attack rolls, a –1 penalty to their Combat Maneuver Bonus and Combat Maneuver Defense, and a +4 size bonus on Stealth checks.
  • Type: Lambkins are humanoids with the lambkin subtype.
  • Base Speed: (Slow Speed) Lambkins have a base speed of 20 feet on land and are always considered to be floating a couple of feet off the ground.
  • Languages: Lambkins begin play speaking Common and Lambkin. Lambkins with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Galkan, Giant, Goblin, Lalafellan, and Orc. See the Linguistics skill page for more information about these languages.

Defense Racial Traits

  • Magic Resistant: Lambkins are particularly resistant to magic. They gain spell resistance equal to 6 + their character level.

Feat and Skill Racial Traits

  • Magic Expert: Lambkins value knowledge and learning about the field of magic. They gain a +2 racial bonus on Knowledge (Arcana) and Spellcraft checks.

Magical Racial Traits

  • Auto-Float: Lambkins are always considered to have the Float status. Without it, they can only crawl 5 feet per movement action. Lambkins that are subjected to a dispel effect (the float effect has a caster level equal to the lambkin’s character level) lose this float effect for 1 round. Lambkins in anti-magic areas automatically lose the float status until they leave the area.
  • Magic Aptitude: Lambkins gain a +2 racial bonus on caster level checks made to overcome spell resistance and a +2 racial bonus on dispel checks.
  • Spell Focus: Lambkins gain a +2 racial bonus on concentration checks made to cast spells defensively.

Senses Racial Traits

  • Low-Light Vision: Lambkins can see twice as far as humes in conditions of dim light.

Alternate Racial Traits

The following alternate racial traits may be selected in place of one or more of the standard racial traits above. Consult your GM before selecting any of these new options.

  • Academician: Some lambkins are more academically inclined than their kin. Lambkins with this racial trait gain a +2 bonus on any single Knowledge skill. This racial trait replaces magic expert.
  • Greater Magic Resistant: Lambkins with this racial trait are much more resistant to magic. They gain a spell resistance equal to 11 + character level. This racial trait replaces magic resistant and magic aptitude.
  • Inquisitive: Lambkins have a knack for being in places they shouldn’t be. Lambkins with this trait gain a +2 racial bonus on Disable Device and Escape Artist checks. This racial trait replaces magic expert.
  • Magical Linguist: Lambkins study languages in both their mundane and supernatural manifestations. Lambkins with this racial trait add +1 to the DC of spells they cast with the language-dependent descriptor or those that create glyphs, symbols, or other magical writings. They gain a +2 racial bonus on saving throws against such spells. Lambkins with Charisma scores of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—comprehend languages, message, read magic. The caster level for these effects is equal to the lambkin’s level. This racial trait replaces magic aptitude.
  • Polyglot: Some lambkins, especially those who spend a lot of time traveling, develop a talent for learning new languages. These lambkins gain a +2 racial bonus on Linguistics checks, and it is always a class skill for them. Lambkins with this racial trait also begin play with the ability to speak Common, Lambkin, and any one other language of their choice in addition to bonus languages due to high Intelligence. They still gain the normal list of lambkin bonus languages. This racial trait replaces magic expert and alters the lambkin language racial trait.
  • Practicality: Lambkins value hard work and common sense. Lambkins with this racial trait gain a +2 bonus on any one Craft or Profession skill, as well as on Sense Motive checks and saves against illusions. This racial trait replaces magic expert and magic resistant.
