Guild Dog Character Class Version 2.0

You are a Guild Dog. The disposable trash the guilds secretly employ for clandestine and outlawed missions that keep the city rumbling along towards annihilation. You are the bottom of the heap in the endless city of Infinigrad.

11. Black Eyes, huge black eyes, you can see perfectly well in the dark.
12. Rock Gut, enormous distended belly, skin constantly sweaty and covered in warts, can eat anything for sustenance. Roll with Advantage when testing against harm coming from consumed substances.
13. Hogman, bristly hair in patches all over body, small tusks (do 1d6 damage), warty and immensely fat, can double their STR for purposes of encumbrance.
14. Elfin, hypnotizingly beautiful, Roll with Advantage on any CHA test where opponent can see you.
15. Fairen, 2 foot tall, incredibly slender, sometimes flowers and grass grows on you. Roll with Disadvantage on any test involving STR and CON, and - 4 to all damage. Roll with Double Advantage (roll 3 dice, use the best result) when attempting anything delicate or sneaky.
16. Demonoid, Red skin, smouldering with heat, fangs and claws (Unarmed damage is same as normal attack damage), Roll with Advantage when testing CHA for any means of intimidation.
17. Apeish, furry, long limbed, hand-like feet (tested at half DEX or STR) and leathery skin. Roll with Advantage when testing DEX for climbing related feats.
18. Cacti, thickset, green plant man, covered in thorns (1d4 damage), no need for food but must see flames for 6 hours every 4 days or drop unconscious for d12 hours. May regrow lost limbs after 1d6 continuous days of rest in firelight.
19. Angelic, annoyingly good looking, with contemptuous features that enrage most that look upon you, small wings that allow you to jump/glide to a range of nearby.
20. Leatherman, brown, tough, incredibly wrinkled and aged skin. This gives you the Armour Points of leather when naked and adds + 2 armour points to any worn armour. Your facial orifices and features are also nearly covered by flaps of leathery skin, allowing you to Roll with Advantage on tests that would benefit from this. 


You start at level 0, with 1 random “life goal” (table below), once you achieve that life goal you hit level 1.
  • Level 1: Now you receive a new random life goal plus a random complication for that life goal.Once you get that done you hit level 2.
  • Level 2: Now you receive 2 x random life goals.
  • Level 3: 2 x life goals, 1 x life goal complication.
  • Level 4: 2 x life goals, 2 x life goal complications.
  • Level 5: 3 x life goal, 2 x life goal complications.
  • Level 6: 3 x life goals, 3 x life goal complications.
Etc.

Each life goal is associated with a specific Guild Dog skill. When you level up from 0 to 1, you gain the skill associated with your life goal. For each additional level, you make pick 1 of the skills associated with all of the life goals you achieved that level. 

The other way in which Guild Dogs can increase their prowess is through Augmentations that are available throughout Infinigrad. See this post for Augmentation Details: https://lizardmandiaries.blogspot.com/2018/10/automated-fantasypunk-augmentation.html
Alternative Leveling system: 

  • Guild Dogs start at level 1. With 1 x Random Life Goal. They progress through Life Goals and acquire Skills as above but Life Goal progression does not affect Guild Dog level. 
  • Guild Dogs gain new levels using this system: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1NiMUbUJXlIibBtupRr2kAkjgESUwFydbIyxvEvjeQPQ/edit?usp=sharing
  • HP, To Hit and Skill/Ability level based bonuses are all dependent on gaining levels through the Level Up Point system. The gaining of specifc skills and abilities is granted through the Life Goal system. 
  • It may be worth giving only the single life goal plus a complication to make the acquiring of Skills easier (but I will test this!)

Use a d4 usage die to see if all of the organic matter is exhausted in the poison making process.
  • Creative Brawler, this Guild Dog rolls 1 dice higher than their normal weapon damage when using improvised weaponry.

Shadowbeings are entities of pure darkness, they have full strength in total darkness - the more light the less their power.
  • Aural Rambunction Hedge Magic, This Guild Dog is able to recreate sounds they have heard, and project them as if they were emitting from elsewhere. The loudness of the sounds is dependant on the Guild Dogs own vocal chords. After hearing a sound the Guild Dog must make a WIS test to see if they remember it. The Guild Dog may remember two times their level different sounds for re-creation. Once a sound is remembered it cannot be forgotten. The Guild Dog can project their sounds at the following ranges; Level 1 - 2: A room, Level 3 - 5: A building, Level 6 - 8: A block, Level 9 + A whole suburb. This may be done the Guild Dog’s level times per day.

  • Olfactofcation, this Guild Dog is able to produce a fist sized blob of gelatinous viscera from their mouths through a process of heavy gagging, belching and chewing. This blob has an overwhelming aroma predetermined by the Guild Dog.This may be done as many times a day as half their level rounded down (with a minimum of once per day).The aroma can be anything the Guild Dog has smelt before (very specific scents may require a WIS test to replicate). The intense aroma of the pervades an area of the following size; Level 1 - 2: A room, Level 3 - 5: A building, Level 6 - 8: A block, Level 9 + A whole suburb. The Guild Dog’s teeth are black and the bottom jaw to the upper torso is covered in layers of heavy black chitin.

  • Wyrdling Hedge Magic, this Guild Dog can inherit the special abilities of its defeated foes. The Guild Dog must sleep in the corpse of the target it wishes to inherit the ability from for at least 6 hours. The GM will then notify the Guild Dog what special power it has gained.

The amount and type of abilities this Guild Dog can inherit is reflected in the Daily Conjurer Spells table. The  “spell slots per level” value is now “HD of target ability”.
