Wild Empathy is like a Wild Diplomacy check.

Feats

(Feat) Animal Affinity: +2 Ride & Animal Handling.   (Druid) Nature Sense: +2 Knowledge (Nature) & Survival.   (Feat) Natural Spell (Cast spells while in Wild Shape)   (Feat) Brew Potion: Cost= spell level * caster level * 50GP + any costly materials [Orison spell level = 1/2] Skill check: Spellcraft or Craft(Alchemy) roll vs DC 5+ item caster level. Missing by -5 = Cursed. Must be able to target the creature drinking the potion. Time to brew: <=250gp 2 hours; otherwise 1day per 1000gp value.   (Druid) Nature Bond: Animal companion, Wrong Way   (Druid) Wild Empathy: Improve the attitude of an animal. 1d20 +druid level +Charisma mod. Magical beast with Int 1 or 2, at -4 penalty.   (Feat) Eschew Materials (Cast spells without any material components of <=1GP value). Jesse can eat greater and lesser mistletoe and oak leaves and use his healing skill to avoid the side effects (mild in adults, severe in children and dogs: Blurred vision, Fever, Hallucinations, Nausea, Drowsiness) Gradually, he builds up a tolerance, and the mistletoe in his gut works for spells.   Wrong Way's Feats (3 at 6th level)   Death from Above (+5 to hit when charging from above while flying, instead of usual charging rules.)   Splash Weapon Mastery (Throw splash weapons farther and more accurately)   Throw Anything (No penalties for improvised ranged weapons, +1 circumstance bonus to hit with thrown splash weapons)

Special Abilities

Skill Points at each Level: 4 + Int modifier (1) +1 Human = 36   Druid Spells and Orisons: Spell points= 4+4*2+3*3 = 21   Woodland Stride: move through non-magical undergrowth such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain at normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment.   Trackless step: leave no trail in natural surroundings, cannot be tracked. May choose to leave a trail if so desired.   Resist Nature's Lure: +4 on saving throws vs spell-like & supernatural abilities of fey, and plant-spells and effects, such as blight, entangle, spike growth, and warp wood.   Three potions Jesse stashed: 1 Tanglefoot, 1 Acid, 1 Alchemist Fire. Alchemist's Atlatl.   Wild Shape: 2/day (+1/day when wearing Druid's Vestment). Shift into the form of a critter/elemental on which the Druid is well-educated, as in worked with one, studied it in its habitat, helped patch up or feed one that was in trouble, or directly interacted with one. A druid CAN shift and their clothes go to the same place as their original body. Contents not available. The druid can still feel the clothing on their original body's form. It's distracting. So most druids strip down, bundle up their stuff into a backpack, shift, and put on the backpack or pick it up or hide it somewhere.

Traits

Alchemical Adept: +2 trait bonus on Craft(Alchemy), failure does not ruin the raw materials unless you roll a 1.   Beast of the Society: Wild Shaping into Small or Medium animal lasts 2 hours per level instead of 1 because a druid at the Grand Lodge taught you how to do it really well.

Shield Bash Attacks: You can bash an opponent with a light shield. See “shield, light” on Table: Weapons for the damage dealt by a shield bash. Used this way, a light shield is a martial bludgeoning weapon. For the purpose of penalties on attack rolls, treat a light shield as a light weapon. If you use your shield as a weapon, you lose its Armor Class bonus until your next turn. An enhancement bonus on a shield does not improve the effectiveness of a shield bash made with it, but the shield can be made into a magic weapon in its own right.

Special: Ranged use requires at least 10ft / one square of distance between user and target
Cost: 2000 gp base price to buy, 750 gp base cost plus friendly druid assistance to make
Weight: 2 lbs

This weighted, woodshaped atlatl resembles a handheld, lever-controlled catapult. One end sports a shaft covered in carvings of alchemical formulae, and the other is a roughly carved bowl. The whole thing appears to be naturally grown as if it has just been detached from a full-grown tree.

The user can place an alchemical splash weapon, such as a flask of acid or alchemist’s fire, in the bowl. This is a move action that provokes an attack of opportunity. When the splash weapon is launched from the atlatl, its range is doubled. Magic items (including an alchemist’s bombs) aren’t affected by an alchemist’s atlatl.

As a melee weapon, it functions similarly to a Mere Club (pronounced MEH-reh). It cannot be used for melee purposes and for ranged attack purposes in the same round of initiative.

Special Abilities

Familiar The master of a horned lizard familiar gains a +2 bonus on Fortitude saves.   Blood Squirt Once per day as a standard action that doesn’t provoke attacks of opportunity, a horned lizard can squirt a 5-foot-long stream of blood from the corners of its eyes. The animal’s blood contains noxious chemicals, and a creature hit by the blood must succeed at a DC 9 Fortitude save or be sickened for 1d4 rounds. The save DC is Constitution-based.   Camouflage While in desert terrain, a horned lizard can use the Stealth skill to hide even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.   Puff Up When taking the total defense action, a horned lizard puffs up its body, appearing larger and more horned and gaining an additional +4 bonus to CMD against grapple attempts.  
Despite their sluggish, toad-like appearance, these creatures are reptiles with dry, spiny skin adapted to prevent water loss in their native desert environment. They are typically found sunning themselves on rocks during all but the hottest parts of the day, retreating beneath the shade of ridges or rocks when the sun is directly overhead. Their main method of defense is to avoid detection, but when their desert coloration fails to fool predators, they attempt to flee or use their other defensive methods, such as their unique ability to rupture blood vessels in their eyes so they can spray noxious blood at approaching predators. Due to their fierce defensive displays, horned lizards are often thought to be overly aggressive, though people who keep them as pets or familiars know that they can be affectionate creatures.

Bite—injury; save Fort DC 14; frequency 1/round for 4 rounds; effect 1d2 Strength damage; cure 1 save   Web (Ex)
Creatures with the web ability can use webs to support themselves and up to one additional creature of the same size. In addition, such creatures can throw a web up to eight times per day. This is similar to an attack with a net but has a maximum range of 50 feet, with a range increment of 10 feet, and is effective against targets up to one size category larger than the web spinner. An entangled creature can escape with a successful Escape Artist check or burst the web with a Strength check. Both are standard actions with a DC equal to 10 + 1/2 the creature’s HD + the creature’s Con modifier. Attempts to burst a web by those caught in it take a –4 penalty.   Web spinners can create sheets of sticky webbing up to three times their size. They usually position these sheets to snare flying creatures but can also try to trap prey on the ground. Approaching creatures must succeed on a DC 20 Perception check to notice a web; otherwise they stumble into it and become trapped as though by a successful web attack. Attempts to escape or burst the webbing gain a +5 bonus if the trapped creature has something to walk on or grab while pulling free. Each 5-foot-square section of web has a number of hit points equal to the Hit Dice of the creature that created it and DR 5/—.   A creature can move across its own web at its climb speed and can pinpoint the location of any creature touching its web.   Format: web (+8 ranged, DC 16, 5 hp Location: Special Attacks.

Ecology

Environment: temperate or warm plains, OR wherever Jesse Devonshire is
Organization: druid animal companion
Treasure: negligible

From d20 Pathfinder SRD with thanks:
Striking yellow and black markings and a coat of bristling hairs cover this immense bee. Its stinger is the size of a dagger blade. Everything is, in turn, probably covered in pollen and/or nectar, because Wrong Way is not a tidy bee at lunchtime.
Giant bees grow to approximately 5 feet in length, with a similar wingspan. These creatures weigh 60 pounds and live in their adult form for nearly 10 years. Giant bees’ stingers are not barbed like those of their diminutive counterparts, so these creatures can sting foes repeatedly and do not die after one sting.

Wrong Way is a juvenile male Giant Bee, raised from infancy by Jesse Devonshire and experiencing a significantly lengthened lifespan as a result.
For one thing, he actually started life believing that he was a Dire Bee! During an adventure, he accidentally doused himself in a magical potion, which faded eventually but never reversed itself. He stayed a Giant Bee. This is not how transformation potions work. So maybe it was a "reveal your true self" potion?
The more nectar Wrong Way eats, the bigger he gets, but on a "life" scale not a "combat time" scale.
Wrong Way ages extremely slowly for anything insect-like. He shows no signs of his calendar age at all. He took years to get from "baby bee" stage to "nearly an adult" stage.
Wrong Way's bestest buddy is Jesse Devonshire, a druid with a truly astounding chin.
When WW is in the sky scanning for trouble, he drops a twig with a leaf on Jesse.
When he goes on break, he drops a twig without any leaf, again aiming for Jesse's close vicinity.
If he sees danger, he drops a nut on Jesse's head and flies closer to Jesse for mutual protection.
 

Vulnerable to Smoke

Smoke from particularly smoky fires or effects (such as that created by a pyrotechnics spell) causes a giant bee to become nauseated if it fails a DC 14 Fortitude save. This condition persists as long as the giant bee remains in the smoke, plus 1d4 rounds.

Level 1 Spells

Forgotten Foes © 2010 Tricky Owlbear Publishing, Inc.; Authors Mark Gedak and Stefen Styrsky.

War Paint

You imbue normal face paint – enough to paint 1 face per caster level – with divine energy.


Transmutation \ \

Casting time: 1 standard action
Range: Touch
Targets: face paint touched
Domain: Orc 1
Deity: Gruumsh

Description

You imbue normal face paint – enough to paint 1 face per caster level – with divine energy. When the paint is used to draw tribal designs upon the face, the resulting pattern is so fierce and intimidating that all who view it must succeed a Will save or be shaken for 1 round per caster level. Those who are successful on their Will saves cannot be affected by war paint’s effects again for 1 full day. Creatures you name as allies are not at risk of becoming shaken by your appearance. The paint’s power lasts a full 24 hours or until purposefully removed, washed, or worn off.

Cure Light Wounds

School conjuration (healing Level bard 1, cleric 1, druid 1, paladin 1, ranger 2
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range Touch
Targets creature touched
Duration instantaneous

  Saving Throw Will half (harmless see text; ;
  Spell Resistance Yes

 
  When laying your hand upon a living creature, you channel positive energy that cures 1d8 points of damage + 1 point per caster level (maximum +5). Since undead are powered by negative energy, this spell deals damage to them instead of curing their wounds. An undead creature can apply spell resistance, and can attempt a Will save to take half damage.
 


 

Charm Animal


enchantment (charm) [mind-affecting]; \ \ druid 1, psychic 1, ranger 1, shaman 1

Targets: one animal

Description

This spell functions like Charm Person, except that it affects a creature of the animal type.

Level 2 Spells

Gust of Wind

School evocation [air];; Level druid 2, sorcerer/wizard 2
Casting Time 1 standard action
Components V, S
Range 60 ft
Duration 1 round

  Saving Throw Fortitude negates ;
  Effect line-shaped gust of severe wind emanating out from you to the extreme of the range
Spell Resistance Yes

 
  This spell creates a severe blast of air (approximately 50 mph) that originates from you, affecting all creatures in its path. All flying creatures in this area take a –4 penalty on Fly skill checks. Tiny or smaller flying creatures must make a DC 25 Fly skill check or be blown back 2d6 × 10 feet and take 2d6 points of damage. Small or smaller flying creatures must make a DC 20 Fly skill check to move against the force of the wind. A Tiny or smaller creature on the ground is knocked down and rolled 1d4 × 10 feet, taking 1d4 points of nonlethal damage per 10 feet. Small creatures are knocked prone by the force of the wind. Medium or smaller creatures are unable to move forward against the force of the wind unless they succeed at a DC 15 Strength check. Large or larger creatures may move normally within a gust of wind effect. This spell can’t move a creature beyond the limit of it’s range. Any creature, regardless of size, takes a –4 penalty on ranged attacks and Perception checks in the area of a gust of wind. The force of the gust automatically extinguishes candles, torches, and similar unprotected flames. It causes protected flames, such as those in lanterns, to dance wildly and has a 50% chance to extinguish those lights. In addition to the effects noted, a gust of wind can do anything that a sudden blast of wind would be expected to do. It can create a stinging spray of sand or dust, fan a large fire, overturn delicate awnings or hangings, heel over a small boat, and blow gases or vapors to the edge of its range. Gust of wind can be made permanent with a permanency spell.
 


 

Tree Shape


transmutation; \ \ druid 2, ranger 3, shaman 2

Casting time: 1 standard action
Range: personal
Duration: 1 hour/level
Targets: you

Description

Components V, S, DF

This spell allows you to assume the form of a Large living tree or shrub or a Large dead tree trunk with a small number of limbs. The exact type of tree, as well as its appearance, is completely under your control. Even the closest inspection cannot reveal that the tree in question is actually a magically concealed creature. To all normal tests you are, in fact, a tree or shrub, although a detect magic spell reveals a faint transmutation on the tree. While in tree form, you can observe all that transpires around you just as if you were in your normal form, and your hit points and save bonuses remain unaffected. You gain a +10 natural armor bonus to AC but have an effective Dexterity score of 0 and a speed of 0 feet. You are immune to critical hits while in tree form. All clothing and gear carried or worn changes with you. You can dismiss tree shape as a free action (instead of as a standard action).

Druidic Alchemist's Atlatl

Damage (S) Damage (M) Type Critical Range
1d3 melee OR see splash weapon used 1d4 melee OR see splash weapon used ranged splash weapon x2 melee OR see splash weapon used for ranged attacks: double normal throwing range (usually 20ft increments with Throw Anything Feat)

Special: Ranged use requires at least 10ft / one square of distance between user and target
Cost: 2000 gp base price to buy, 750 gp base cost plus friendly druid assistance to make
Weight: 2 lbs

This weighted, woodshaped atlatl resembles a handheld, lever-controlled catapult. One end sports a shaft covered in carvings of alchemical formulae, and the other is a roughly carved bowl. The whole thing appears to be naturally grown as if it has just been detached from a full-grown tree.

The user can place an alchemical splash weapon, such as a flask of acid or alchemist’s fire, in the bowl. This is a move action that provokes an attack of opportunity. When the splash weapon is launched from the atlatl, its range is doubled. Magic items (including an alchemist’s bombs) aren’t affected by an alchemist’s atlatl.

As a melee weapon, it functions similarly to a Mere Club (pronounced MEH-reh). It cannot be used for melee purposes and for ranged attack purposes in the same round of initiative.

 
Construction requirements:
Cost 750 gp
Feats Craft Wondrous Item
Spells longshot


 
[block:   Splash Weapons - Acid - Alchemist Fire - Tanglefoot. Jesse stored these under the bench seat of the beer wagon. He will pull them out when necessary.   Boots of the Cat (land on your feet taking minimum damage from any fall). Jesse has been wearing these but hasn't taken a fall lately.   Druid's Vestment (one extra Wild Shape per day). Jesse has been wearing this as a kilt. He dons the vestment like a bathrobe and ties the belt. Then he pulls the top off of his shoulders and lets it hang down the back.   Pending GM Approval: Magic Vest of Wooden Lamellar Armor This would put a lampshade on the glaring flaw that Jesse shows a lot of skin yet has 4 points of armor. If approved it gives all the benefits and liabilities of wearing Wooden Lamellar Armor. But it can be donned and doffed much faster. An armor smith passing through Aquitaine thought everybody would love it. But everybody thought it looked dumb compared to Bracers of Armor+4 which can be worn in addition to real armor or worn by mages. Except Jesse loved it.]

20200912 Love Birds in a Hurricane

by Jesse Devonshire

Scaevola Aemula and I got together again, and Wrong Way too. Glad to see him. I hardly got any time to talk about her to him, nor him to her for that matter. There's no time; this situation has been growing (or rotting) for so long that we need some swift action. We might be able to get some of the parties (Ranchers and Farmers and others) to out of the traps they've set for themselves. Some of them may already be trying. Big Mari and Big Louie might be at least mostly come to their senses. Now if we can find them before they get themselves killed trying to put back down what they called up.
 
At the Whippetal Ranch, there's that Pumice hill where maybe a falling star skipped. It could be chock full of magic materials, or anti-magic materials. Either way, more coveted than anyone around here seems to know. I wonder who has the land rights to it? The Alfredo family maybe? I wonder if it is interfering with Scaevola Aemula's sense of direction too? She does so much tree-hopping it could be dangerous for her to lose her bearings.
 
We sneaked our way to the Whippetal Mansion, depending on what you call sneaking. Chef got a Hell-Woolies' Halberd - in his hands, not in his skull, which is good.
 
We took the kinda secret servants' door to the cellar. It had all the usual stuff, a furnace, a globe stuffed with baby blankets, an empty prison cell, letters from Mia Alfredo to her cousin. Also some notes on how the Alfredo's kept Purgatory Gulch out of the Free Cities League. Also a disreputable real estate plan to buy up all the land suitable for a youthful team of meddling sleuths and their pet to investigate.
 
Big M and Big L might have been the powerhouses on the Rancher side. It seems Grandma Clementine Gnarlbeard of Corrient Farm was the powerhouse on the Farmer side.
 
It appears their was a War for the Storm. In this arid land, who controls the water controls the power of life itself.
 
Big M&L left a note for Princess to grab her little friend and Grandpa's decorated skull and head south... way south... Then keep going.
 
So we got all the way from the cellar to the attic before we found ourselves in a death trap. It's a shame I never have time to talk Alchemy with anyone who's interested in it. They are always fighting for their lives.
