What is a Shapeshifter?
Shapeshifters are an arcane
animist discipline originating from the land of Infidian. Various forms are
assumed complete with powers, to explore and experience the wilderness
of the world. They are believed to have arose from an animist
tribe whose worship of their totemic spirits granted them powers to
change into the form of the totem. These different tribes joined
together loosely, calling themselves the Enclave. The Enclave recently
set up an outpost south of the Scythe Camp, adjacent to the mouth of
the Shantih river. At the outpost you can learn the skills necessary to
becoming a successful Shapeshifter then all you need to do is spend time
practicing and adventuring.
The shapeshifter class is
broken up into different clans you join, which represent particular
areas of nature. There are three clans, Forest, Feline, and
Reptile. In each clan you have 3 forms related to what the clan
stands for. There are also 3 basic forms everyone learns: rock
form, opossum form, and frog form, each with their own related
abilities. You can learn all forms, but you must pick your
primary clan, which will raise the fastest, but after that, secondary
and tertiary clans will raise slower.
What forms can I be?
This is a strong clan of proud feline warriors, focusing on brute force and
the only clan that can at the highest levels, wield weapons. The
three feline forms are:
- Cat- the domesticated variety
- Panther- A strong, multiple attack form
- Xaerre- The highest level of feline,
a human torso on a lion body. It primarily uses weapons,
but can rear up and do tremendous damage with its sharp front
claws, as well as attack with its clawed hands.
This clan is mostly oriented towards regeneration until you
reach the highest levels, where they are ferocious warriors with thick
armoured trunks. They are all too big to fit
indoors. The three forest forms are:
- Flower- as long as it is sunny out, this form provides
free regeneration, however, you are rooted in place.
- Tree- regenerates when it rains and has limited
combat and movement ability.
- Treant- the highest level of forest, which can move about
freely and even entangle its foes with roots. Has a very
tough trunk, but is also highly susceptible to fire.
This clan is rivals
with the feline clan in overall power. While Felines deal out
alot of damage, Reptiles can take more abuse with their thick scales
and at higher levels, become more and more dragon-like. The
three forms are chameleon, nelitos dragon, and drakon.
- Chameleon- similar in combat to cat form, but can use the
blend ability to try and hide by blending into the surroundings.
- Nelitos Dragon- A powerful form, similar to
panther, but with thicker scales and a ferocious bite.
Similar to a komodo dragon.
- Drakon- The most powerful reptile form, more
dragon-like than anything. They fight with their powerful
claws, tough natural armour, and their tail. Rumours have it
when they are powerful enough, they can even perform a powerful
