Random Encounters — Ceiling Cat

Welcome to Random Encounters, the blog where we take a popular internet meme, animal video, or the like and turn it into a game rule for Pathfinder or Starfinder.

At special request from the network’s own Loren Sieg, I present to you ceiling cat… who’s probably watching you do something you’d be embarrassed to be observed doing. But fear not! You can get these powers of embarrassment all to yourself:

Inexplicable ObservationFeat 15

General Skill
Prerequisites legendary in Stealth

When using Stealth for initiative, you can begin the encounter anywhere in the encounter area. Furthermore, you can attempt one Recall Knowledge check against each observed creature in the encounter area before the start of initiative and you can attempt one Seek action against each hidden creature before the start of initiative.

    Absolutely ceiling cat-worthy!

  2. Thanks for the read Lora I am eager to read yours Our Spiritual Connection With Cats. I most certainly agree with your statement about dog protectors and cat protectors. Cats have such a spiritual sense. They have always come to my aid to communicate something to me and they certainly keep the air clean. The cat vision comparison really interested me because I always assumed they saw more vibrant colors than we do. . . You did a wonderful job on a very interesting topic, Layne. I’ve always known cats have amazing senses, more keen than ours and their intuition on picking up things that we cannot see or feel is extraordinary. My cats have always amazed me with their cat extrasensory perception! The graph was very helpful in explaining the differences between cat and human vision and I really enjoyed the videos too. As I stated in my article, Our Spiritual Connection With Cats, Dogs are the protectors of our bodies while cats are the protectors of our spirit when we sleep coming to our rescue or aid if there are any harmful spirits that we may encounter in our dreams. Thank you for a great article on our feline companions.
