Question Involving Kara Kissed

Postby EquestrianScholar » Fri Sep 25, 2015 5:50 pm

Kara Kissed
You have given yourself over to the doppelganger queen, and she has welcomed you into her embrace. In a profane ritual, you have been imbued with a shard of her terribly seductive powers, drawing away shreds of your original birthright and replacing them with that of her children, the doppelgangers.
Prerequisite: Must worship Kara, non-good alignment, character level 3rd.
Benefit: Gain the shapeshifter subtype. You qualify for any feat, effect, spell, or ability
that targets, affects, or requires being a doppelganger pony. Your appearance becomes insectoid, but you gain the supernatural ability to take on your birth form as a standard action as per alter shape without the stat adjustments.

Which doppelgänger feats actually apply, which ones are available? Does the character count as having the doppelgänger abilities such as Emotional Vampire and Shape Shift (Lesser) when it comes to feats?

They have shape shift (lesser), but not emotional vampire, if it's that specific. If it just says 'doppleganger' then they qualify.

Ah, I was thinking I had perhaps figured it out on my own last night. Since the doppleganger race is taken from losing Destiny Mark (loss of a feat) I had thought that because you are giving up a feat with Kara Kissed that meant you gained the racial abilities that would be there if you had picked doppleganger at first level.

That makes the feat less effective... though perhaps still something my player may like to use. Because of the book A Subtle Change, I think I will be switching over to your doppleganger for my changeling race.

To my surprise, it seems all the racial feats have just that.

I liked how Subtle Change came out. I'm happy you did too!

Would it be unbalanced allowing a player who takes Kara Kissed to gain Emotional Vampire, in addition to Shape Shift (Lesser)?

Pure game balance wise? No skin is lost.

I guess a better question is, would you have a reason I shouldn't allow it?

Only thematics, no gamey reason. Go with your heart, Kara Enjoys that.
