Iconic Design—Alex’s Workshop: E-A-G-L-E-S EAGLES!


Sorry. I’m not a big football fan, but I AM a Philadelphian, and when our team is in the big game and casts off the shackles of a 52-year long win drought, you’re a fan. And as a fan, I felt it necessary to celebrate this victory in my own, special way—by stealing a page from Ryan Costello and Luis Loza’s book and designing something for you guys to use! So with all of the quality you’ve come to expect from me and my companion, please enjoy this new shifter aspect. Who knows, maybe in the future I’ll publish this properly in an Everyman Gaming product, but for now…


Eagle Aspect

The eagle is a proud avian that dominates the skies with all the majesty of a king. Those who take this aspect gain enhanced abilities

Minor Form: You gain a +2 enhancement bonus to your Charisma score. At 8th level, the bonus increases to +4, and at 15th level it increases to +6.

Major Form: Your shape changes to that of a Large eagle. While in this form you gain a bite attack (1d6 damage), two claw attacks (1d6 damage), a fly speed of 60 feet (good), low-light vision, and the benefits of the Dazzling Display feat, which you use as if you had Weapon Focus (claw). If you have Dazzling Display or Weapon Focus (claw), you gain a +2 racial bonus on Intimidate checks for each feat you possess (maximum +4). At 8th level, you can use Dazzling Display as a standard action or an immediate action when you confirm a critical hit with your shifter claws. At 15th level, you can use Dazzling Display as a swift action and your fly speed increases to 90 feet (perfect).
