I've hit a golem kick in my glacially slow growing personal setting so I'm on the lookout for even more Special Construction types. I just happened to have one that I'm going to share for the purpose of stealing and constructive criticism:
A complete skeleton -- or perhaps more than one -- your reflexes and dead appearance give friends and foe alike pause. You gain Bow and Edged Resistance 5, lose lumbering
, and each time an opponent attacks you and misses he suffers 2 stress damage. However, your Size is considered 1 category smaller during Bull Rushes, Grapples, and Trips, and the Disposition of any character who’s aware of your species and doesn’t share your native culture worsens by 10.Of course there is a very nice Revenant race for playing an undead skeleton
and I could have simply adopted the species feats from that, except it takes two feats to get the resistances.
One alternative for less baked-in scary would be to remove the stress damage and the reviled
. Possibly I should replace the "1 size category smaller" (intended to simulate loss of all that flesh mass) with Achilles hell (blunt)
