Spriggan

HD: d6
Lv   Bab   Fort   Ref   Will   Feature
1   +0   +0   +2   +0   Spriggan Body, Cause Fear, Size Change, Sudden strike +1d6, +1 Dex
2   +1   +0   +3   +0   Produce Flame, Sneak attack +1d6, +1 Dex
3   +2   +1   +3   +1   Improved Size Change, Shatter, Sneak attack +2d6, +1 Dex

Class Skills (4+Int): Climb, Disable Device, Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Open Lock, Search, Sleight of Hand
 
Proficiencies: A spriggan is proficient with simple weapons and light armor, but not with shields.

Features:
Spriggan Body: At 1st level the spriggan loses all other racial bonus and gets fey traits (low-light vision). He is a Small sized Fey with base speed 20 feet.

Ability Increase: The spriggan gains a permanent +1 to Dex at each level.

Cause Fear (Sp): A spriggan can use cause fear as a spell-like ability 1/day per HD (caster level equals his HD).
When he reaches 3 HD the spriggan can instead create a scare effect, and can affect creatures with a maximum HD equal to his HD+3.
When he reaches 7 HD the spriggan can use this ability at Long range (400ft +40ft per caster level).
When he reaches 13 HD the spriggan can instead create a quickened cause fear effect.
When he reaches 15 HD the spriggan can instead create a quickened scare effect.

Size Change (Su): A spriggan can increase in size as a move action. This functions as an enlarge person effect except that it grants Str +4, Dex -2, Con +2 in place of the normal ability score adjustments, and increases the spriggan's land speed by +10ft. While enlarged in this manner the spriggan cannot use sneak attack, sudden strike or abilities which require concentration (including spell-like abilities). Ending this effect is a move action.

Sudden Strike/Sneak Attack (Ex): At 1st level a spriggan deals +1d6 precision damage on attacks against creatures denied their Dex bonus to AC, as long as they are within 30ft.
At 2nd level this ability improves to sneak attack, allowing him to gain the extra damage against flanked creatures as well.
At 3rd level his sneak attack improves to deal +2d6 damage.

Produce Flame (Sp): At 2nd level a spriggan can create a produce flame effect as a free action at will (caster level equals his HD), except that the flames can be hurled out to Medium range (100ft +10ft per caster level) and deal damage equal to 1d6 plus his Dex modifier on a successful attack.

Improved Size Change (Su): At 3rd level the spriggan's Size Change ability improves, allowing him to increase in size by two categories rather than one; increase the ability score modifiers to Str +8, Dex -4, Con +4. For every 2 dice of sneak attack or sudden strike the spriggan possesses from sources other than his race (eg. rogue levels), he gains an additional Str +2/Con +1 while using this ability.

Shatter (Sp): At 3rd level a spriggan can use shatter as a spell-like ability 1/day per HD (caster level equals his HD).
When he reaches 11 HD the spriggan may use this ability as a swift action.

Brightflame [Monstrous]
The flames you create flicker with many colours.
Prerequisites: Produce flame special attack
Benefit: When using your produce flame racial ability to make an attack, you may treat your target's energy resistance as 5 lower. In addition, select acid, cold or electricity - you may choose to deal damage of that type with produce flame instead of fire damage.
Special: A character with this feat may use produce flame underwater.
Special: You may select this feat multiple times, choosing a different energy type each time. The reduction to energy resistance stacks.

Ha, this one's of those monsters that really caught my eye the first time I saw it!

At first glance I can't spot anything wrong with it. Precison damage, fear and fire, size changes, it combines all nicely whitout any abuse problems, leading into roguish characters.

Also, may I sugest this image?

There's nothing to prevent you from using (Improved) Size Change multiple times to make yourself as big as you want.

Except that it's "as enlarge person", which doesn't stack with other size-changers (including itself).

Good point.  Serves me right for being lazy and not actually looking at Enlarge Person...  :embarrassed
