I want to tell you about Kitsune and why they are worth voting for them.
A bit about Kitsune themselves
Kitsune, or fox folk, are vulpine shapeshifters known for their love of both trickery and art. Kitsune possess two forms: that of an attractive human of slender build with salient eyes, and their true form of an anthropomorphic fox. Despite an irrepressible penchant for deception, kitsune prize loyalty and make true companions. They delight in the arts, particularly riddles and storytelling, and settle in ancestral clans, taking their wisdom from both the living and spirits.
Kitsune society is enigmatic, as kitsune prize loyalty among their friends but delight in good-natured mischief and trickery. Kitsune take pleasure in the pursuit of creative arts and in all forms of competition, especially the telling of stories interwoven with tall tales and falsehoods.
Kitsune hawe 5 subraces: Earthkin (Standard Kitsune), Firekin (Desert Kitsune), Voidkin (Aberrant Kitsune), Waterkin (Arctic Kitsune) and Windkin (Steppe Kitsune).
How kitsune could end up in Mendev
Kitsune hail primarily from Tian Xia, which is very far from Mendev. But don’t forget they have a predisposition to seek glory to make a name for themselves. Keenly interested in adding their own names to the myths and legends of explorers and heroes of old, Kitsune adventurers range across the world. And how, of course, the war with the army of demons could not attract the attention of the seekers of glory.
Kitsune are humanoids with the kitsune and shapechanger subtypes. They are agile and companionable, but tend to be physically weak. They gain +2 Dexterity, +2 Charisma, and -2 Strength.
Сonsidering the fact that Kitsune Medium creatures they have no bonuses or penalties due to their size and have a base speed of 30 feet. Kitsune receive a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics checks.
Besides Kitsune can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
Magical Racial Traits
A kitsune can assume the appearance of a specific single human form of the same sex. The kitsune always takes this specific form when she uses this ability. A kitsune in human form cannot use her bite attack, but gains a +10 racial bonus on Disguise checks made to appear human. Changing shape is a standard action. This ability otherwise functions as alter self, except that the kitsune does not adjust her ability scores and can remain in this form indefinitely. I think Owlcat developers can easily implement this ability in the game. Moreover, one of the developers mentioned that they will think about how Kitsune will look in human form.
In addition, Kitsune add +1 to the DC of any saving throws against enchantment spells that they cast. Kitsune with a Charisma score of 11 or higher gain the following spell-like ability: 3/day—dancing lights.
Kitsune can become great fаighters, rogues, cavaliers, bards, arcanists, brawlers, druids, oracles mesmerists, shamans, sorcerers.
For Kitsune available two racial archetypes:
Kitsune Trickster (Rogue) - The kitsune trickster combines His/Her sharpened wit with minor arcane powers of charm and persuasion. He/She uses her talents to spin convincing lies, riddles, and stories.
Nine Tailed Heir (Sorcerer) - Stories often tell of kitsune with multiple tails, but not many realize that fewer than one kitsune in every thousand has this potential, and those that do usually have a magical quirk in their blood or have been blessed by their race’s deific matron. As a result, most that harness the mystic powers of their newfound tails often gain sorcerous powers, becoming nine-tailed heirs.
Aesthetic side of foxes
Of all the creatures inhabiting the planet, foxes have been endowed with human characteristics, represented prolifically, and honored in multiple and mysterious ways. Thus they’ve been for thousands of years. They’re also the purveyors of a powerful and seductive mythology.
It was long believed that seeing a fox was a sign of the world of the dead. Nearly all cultures have endowed these beautiful animal with magical powers and unmatched intelligence. Sometimes foxes are masters bearing great wisdom. At other times they are touched by evil beings, thanks especially to their ability to deceive.
Just look at these eyes, how can you tell them no.
They are simply charming and majestic…
