Abilities and Defects



































Exotic Weapon: Eimin Gutaika gained exotic weapon proficiency with the Ninja-to.

Face of Darkness: Eimin Gutaika's face has become smooth and featureless, making him completely unrecognizable. He may restore his former appearance for up to ten rounds, temporarily.

Fear: Eimin Gutaika may choose to reveal its true nature to its opponents, allowing its features to slide away to a smooth and disturbing visage. This effect causes fear in all who behold it as if it were cast by a 15th level Sorcerer. Characters who have knowledge about the Lying Darkness are immune to this effect.

Hunter's Mark: If he aims before making a ranged attack, Eimin Gutaika moves his target one step closer along the condition track if his attack hits.

Hunter's Target: Once per encounter as a free action, Eimin Gutaika may designate an opponent. For the rest of the encounter, when he succeeds on a melee or ranged attack against that opponent, he gains bonuses on damage.

Immunities: Eimin Gutaika is immune to poison, mind-altering effects, and illusions. Eimin Gutaika requires no food or sleep.

Improved Evasion: Eimin Gutaika can avoid even magical and unusual attacks with great agility. If he makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, he instead takes no damage. Even if he fails his saving throw, he takes only half damage from the attack. Eimin Gutaika can only use improved evasion if he is wearing light armor or no armor.

Ki Breath: Eimin Gutaika has learned to focus his ki to increase his ability to hold his breath.

Ki Pool: Eimin Gutaika gained a pool of ki, supernatural energy he can use to accomplish amazing feats. As long as she has at least 1 point in her ki pool, she treats any Acrobatics skill check made to jump as if she had a running start. By spending 1 point from his ki pool, Eimin Gutaika can make one additional attack at his highest attack bonus, but he can do so only when making a full attack. In addition, he can spend 1 point to increase his speed by 20 feet for 1 round. Finally, Eimin Gutaika can spend 1 point from his ki pool to give himself an insight bonus on Stealth checks for 1 round. Each of these powers is activated as a swift action. Eimin Gutaika has gained additional powers that consume points from his ki pool by selecting certain ninja tricks (see below). The ki pool is replenished each morning after 8 hours of rest or meditation; these hours do not need to be consecutive.

Magic/Spell Deficiency: Eimin Gutaika has lost his ability to cast spells.

Nameless Body: Eimin Gutaika no longer suffers ability penalties or bonuses for aging, and cannot be magically aged (losing all penalties already gained from aging). Eimin Gutaika will live until killed by unnatural forces or fully absorbed into the Darkness.

No Trace: Eimin Gutaika learned to cover his tracks, remain hidden, and conceal his presence.

Notorious: Eimin Gutaika's skill as a bounty hunter is known throughout, even on fringe worlds. When he is not disguised, he can reroll any Persuasion checks made to intimidate others, keeping the better result.

Of One Mind: Minions of the Lying Darkness may communicate with one another via Telepathy at will, over any range.

Poison Use: Eimin Gutaika is trained in the use of poison and cannot accidentally poison himself when applying poison to a weapon. (Not that it matters.)

Severed Tie: Eimin Gutaika may employ the corruption of the Lying Darkness to break the bond between a living Human and his ancestor spirit for a short time. As a normal action, Eimin Gutaika may cause this to all characters within 20 feet for ten rounds. Eimin Gutaika, himself, has permanently lost any connection to his ancestors. His very presence disturbs the very pattern of the Void enough to hinder other characters. Any time a character would use the Void, the cost is doubled. If that character's doubled cost is more than the character has, the character's points are spent and the ability is not used.

Shadow Bolt: Once per day, Eimin Gutaika may fire the essence of the Darkness in a concentrated bolt, causing not only damage, but the loss of the ability to use the void, any power tied to your ancestor, and 10% spell failure chance (in addition to any existing spell failure change) to all divine spells for an hour. A character killed by shadow bolt is unmade completely, and may not be raised from the dead by any means save Resurrection, Wish, Miracle, or serious divine intervention (e.g. nothing a Rhy'Din God Character could do).

Shadow Walk: Eimin Gutaika may, as a partial action, meld into a shadow within arm's reach, then reappear from a shadow up to 200 feet away. Both shadows must be fully or partially visible to Eimin Gutaika, and must be at least half the size of the character.

Shadowed Soul: Eimin Gutaika has a high level of spell resistance. A spellcaster must overcome Eimin Gutaika's spell resistance.

Shinobi: Eimin Gutaika can use the power of the Nameless Darkness to perform actions and effects that mimic illusionary magic.

Slow Fall: Within arm's reach of a wall, Eimin Gutaika can use the wall to slow his descent. He takes damage as if the fall were 20 feet shorter than it actually is.

Sneak Attack: If Eimin Gutaika can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from her attack, he can strike a vital spot for extra damage. He must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot, and must be able to reach this spot. Eimin Gutaika cannot sneak attack while striking a creature that has concealment.

Sun Sensitivity: If exposed to full sunlight, Eimin Gutaika has a penalty to all actions.

Supernatural Stealth: Eimin Gutaika has supernatural bonuses to his ability to hide and move silently. This ability is negated if there are no shadows present.

Uncanny Dodge: Eimin Gutaika can react to danger before his senses would normally allow him to do so. He cannot be caught flat-footed, nor does he lose his Dexterity if the attacker is invisible. He still loses his Dexterity if immobilized. With this ability, he can still lose his Dexterity if an opponent successfully uses the feint action against him.

Unnatural Speed:
