Improved Animal Shape (Racial)


You can become a dire animal.

Prerequisites: Cha 13, Animal Shape, base attack bonus +4, any skinwalker heritage other than bloodmarked.

Benefit: When you use your Animal Shape ability, you can instead take the form of an dire animal. Your dire animal form is Large, and grants you a +4 size bonus to your Strength, a -2 penalty to your Dexterity, and a +4 natural armor bonus; the damage die for your natural attack(s) also uses the amount typical for a Large creature. You also gain all special qualities listed in the statblock for a druid’s animal companion appropriate to your animal shape.

Special: Bloodmarked instead select the Dire Bat Shape feat.
