Shapeshifter - Orient Prestige Class
This Prestige class uses elements that may not be applicable to the Forgotten Realms Campaign
The lands of Oriental Adventures are full of shapechangers; animals who take the shape of humans (hengeyokai), fiends and spirits in human guise, and sorcerers who take animal form. Shapeshifters are masters of these transforming powers, whose natural forms eventually become as fluid as water.
Shapeshifters must already have some means of changing their form before learning to master that change. Some shapeshifters are spellcasters (wu jen, sorcerers, or shamans) who first learn polymorph self and then move on to greater mastery. Others are hengeyokai, lycanthropes, rakshasas, ogre mages, or other creatures with natural shapechanging ability. A very few high-level ninja (with their thousand faces supernatural ability) manage to acquire at least a few levels of shapeshifter. Shapeshifters are not found in Rokugan.
