Alternative Racial Traits

  • Constrict: A lamia with this racial trait gains the constrict special attack, allowing the lamia to deal bludgeoning damage when he or she makes a successful grapple check (in addition to any other effects caused by a successful check, including additional damage). The amount of damage equals 1d6 plus the lamia’s Strength bonus (if any). This replaces the intimidating racial trait.
  • Deceiver: All lamia are skilled manipulators and deceivers, although some truly excel in these skills. Such lamia are also harder for others to deceive. Lamia with this racial trait receive a +2 racial bonus to Bluff and Diplomacy checks and a +1 racial bonus to Sense Motive checks. This replaces the skilled racial trait.
  • Fanged: Occasionally, a lamia is born with sharp, snake‑like fangs, granting a bite attack. This is a primary natural attack that deals 1d4 piercing damage. Wounds caused by these fangs continue to bleed, inflicting 1 point of extra damage each round at the start of the affected creature’s turn. This bleeding can be stopped by a successful DC 15 Heal skill check or through the application of any magical healing. This racial trait replaces the weapon familiarity racial trait.
  • Magic Resistant: Some lamia are particularly resistant to magic. Lamia with this racial trait gain increased spell resistance. This spell resistance is equal to 7 + the lamia’s character level. This racial trait replaces the spell resistance and intimidating racial traits.
  • Mystical Tattoo: Many lamia have mystical lunar symbols tattooed on their bodies, usually on their chest and/or forearms. For unknown reasons, these tattoos occasionally acquire actual spiritual power. Lamia with this racial trait gain a +1 luck bonus to all saving throws. This replaces the intimidating racial trait.
  • Persuasive Magic: Lamia with this racial trait are treated as 1 level higher when casting spells of the Enchantment school. This racial trait replaces the intimidating racial trait.
  • Racial Enmity: Lamia have long hated the creatures they refer to as the gesh’ vek (“false lamia”). Lamia with this racial trait receive a +1 bonus to attack rolls and damage rolls against any of these false lamia. This racial trait replaces the skilled racial trait.
  • Wisdom Damage: Some lamia commoners are born with just a touch of their lamia matriarch’s wisdom drain ability. As a supernatural ability, such lamia can deal 1d4 Wisdom damage three times per day with a successful melee touch attack. This racial trait replaces the lamia immunities and weapon familiarity traits.
