Combat

The gheden half-orc barbarian dispassionately charges into battle, even during a rage. It has little sense of self or self-preservation and relentlessly attacks until no foes remain or it is dead.

Dead Nerves (Ex): A gheden has a weak sense of touch and is incapable of feeling pain. It is unaffected by nonlethal damage, stunning and eath by massive damage. This lack of sensation also imposes a -8 penalty on any skill check that involves fine motor control or a sense of touch, such as Open Lock or Sleight of Hand checks, but grants a +4 bonus on Concentration checks provoked by damage.

Detect Mindless Undead (Sp): At will, a gheden can detect any form of mindless undead. This ability works like the detect undead spell (caster level equals gheden's total HD), but it only detects mindless undead.

Immunities (Ex): A gheden is immune to fear and confusion effects.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex): The gheden retains its dexterity bonus to AC even if it is caught flat-footed or is struck by and invincible attacker. It still loses its Dexterity bonus to AC if immobilized.
