channel beast. beast people can channel the energy of up to three animals or magical beasts that cannot be bipedal getting one of their abilities. for example they can get a wolves sent ability, a tigers hide bonus (adds to you original bonus), a dragons breath weapon, a bear’s strength or a Pegasuses wings. These abilities can be from the same creature if wanted. only one ability can be activated at a time. the BP get a channel at levels 1 5 7
The activation of Channel Beast is an immediate action however using the ability still takes its normal time. The player can choose to end the ability at any time before it would normally end as a free action.
Channel Pool: At lvl 1 they gain a pool of points they can use for their channel beast ability. They get a number of points equal to 3 + their hit die. these recharge after 8 hours of sleep.
To use the channel beast power the character needs to use points from their pool. The amount of points an ability requires is based on the challenge rating of the creature they received the ability from ( a CR 1 cost 1 point while a CR 5 cost 5 points) The ability lasts for 1 round + 1 bonus round every five levels (max 5 rounds at lvl 20) for special abilities (dragon breath, fast healing , etc) abilities that effect the body (ability scores, natural armor, speed, vision) last 2 rounds + 2 rounds per five levels (max 10 rounds at lvl 20) these abilities replace their existing one and do not stack. Skills last 4 rounds + 4 per five levels (max 20 rounds at lvl 20)
you must pay the cost of an ability at the activation and the beginning of every non-bonus round
Abilities that have a re-charge time are still in effect even if you end your ability (after using dragons breath you have to wait 1d4 rounds before you can use it again)
the activation of the characters abilities is an immediate action however using the ability still takes its normal time. The player can choose to end the ability at any time before it would normally end as a free action.
spirit animal: at level 11 a bp come in contact with a spirit animal gaining some of their abilities
