Chameleon creatures are the results of forced crossbreeding experiments involving chameleons and other creatures. A chameleon creature has skin that alters its color to match the surrounding environment - and a long tongue with which it can make touch attacks.
Creating An Chameleon Creature
"Chameleon Creature" is an inherited template that can be added to any corporeal creature except a construct, undead, or elemental (referred to hereafter as the base creature).
A chameleon creature uses all the base creature's statistics and special abilities except as noted here.
Size and Type: The creature's type remains the same, but it has the reptilian subtype if humanoid. Size is unchanged.
Attacks: A chameleon creature has a tongue attack with 10-foot reach. This attack deals no damage, but it is especially useful for delivering touch spells.
Speed: A chameleon creature has a climb speed equal to one-half its highest non-flying speed. If the creature has only a fly speed, it has a climb speed of 10 feet.
Special Qualities: A chameleon creature has all the special qualities of the base creature, plus low-light vision.
Skills: A chameleon creature has a +10 racial bonus on Hide checks and a +4 racial bonus on Move Silently checks.
Because it has a climb speed, a chameleon creature receives a +8 racial bonus on Climb checks and can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks even if rushed or threatened.
Challenge Rating: Same as the base creature +1.
Level Adjustment: +1.
