Unearthed Errata: Sibeccai Race

by Tim Wallace and Adam Frank

Seen as slaves and servants these canids were created by the rephaim to act as a sort of friend and companion. These creatures are commonly kind and caring, often ready to please and fiercely loyal to those they consider family. The sibeccai feel most at home when helping others and as this is their primary role it is often why other races misconstrue them as slaves. In truth, the sibeccai are a free race who have by and large chosen to live with and help the rephaim grow and prosper; thus allowing themselves the same benefits.
Physical Description: These jackal headed humanoids range in height from about four feet tall to as tall as six and a half or seven feet. Males tend to be taller than the females and both genders have similar body types to humans. They have light to dark brown fur commonly adorned with natural spots or stripes. To adorn themselves the males will pierce their ears, while the females will pierce their noses and ears; a common piece of jewelry is a light, thin chain connecting these piercings together.
Society: The sibeccai work and live in the rephaim cities helping to build and beautify. These canids serve in many ways and are at their happiest when serving. This can range from a butler or cook, to an artist who creates beautiful pieces of work to help decorate the cities. They don't have marriages and thus their family units are often fleeting. A young sibeccai will stay with its mother or father until it feels the desire to go off and learn a trade, an art form, or even protect their homes as soldiers.
Relations: Outside of some quiet derision the sibeccai tend to get along well with other races as they are always the first to jump to help out. They live to serve and will go out of their ways to help someone in need. The only race who really seems to resent them are the litorians. The litorians see the sibeccai as slaves to their giant masters and want to see them break away; the fact that the sibeccai don't see themselves as slaves nor do they wish to stop serving others even when it doesn't benefit them only serves to widen the rift.
Alignment and Religion: The sibeccai tend follow no religions though will often pay lip service to whatever religion is prevalent around them to better fit in and help the society. Slaves or helpers, servants or loyal friends the sibeccai are overwhelmingly a goodly people and do their level best to help that and serve when they can.
Adventurers: Sibeccai adventurers are surprisingly common as they enjoy exploring and helping grow a group of adventurers into a strong team. They always will take an active hand in being helpful whenever the opportunity presents itself. They can be seen across all classes as each has its own unique way of bringing something to the adventuring table.
Male Names: Adio, Asim, Chigaru, Gyasi, Jumoke, Thabit, Ubiad
Female Names: Akiiki, Anippe, Chibale, Jendayi, Tahirah, Safiya, Umayma

Favored Class Options
The following options are available to all sibeccai who have the listed favored class, and unless otherwise stated, the bonus applies each time you select the favored class reward.
Barbarian: Add +1 to the barbarian's total number of rage rounds per day.
Bloodrager: Add 1 foot to the bloodrager's base speed. In combat, this only has an effect for every five increases in base speed. This bonus stacks with the bloodrager's fast movement class feature, and applies under the same conditions and that feature.
Brawler: Add 1 foot to the brawler's base speed. In combat, this has an effect only for every five increases in the brawler's base speed.
Fighter: Add a +1/2 circumstance bonus on critical hit confirmation rolls with a weapon of the fighter's choice (maximum bonus +4). This bonus does not stack with Critical Focus.
Magus: Select one known magus arcana usable only once per day. The magus adds +1/6 to the number of times it can be used per day. Once that magus arcana is usable twice per day, the magus must select a different magus arcana.
Monk: Add a +1/4 bonus on combat maneuver checks made to grapple or trip.
Slayer: Increase the studied target bonus on Perception and Survival checks by 1/4. When the slayer gains the stalker class feature, he also gains this increase to the studied target bonus on Stealth checks.

Racial Class Options
The following racial slayer archetype is available to sibeccai.

Insurgent (Slayer)
The insurgent excels at destroying structures as well as his enemies.

Class Skills: An insurgent adds Knowledge (engineering) to his list of class skills.

Bomb (Su): At 2nd level, an insurgent gains the ability to create bombs. This ability functions exactly like the alchemist ability of the same name. This ability stacks with the alchemist bomb ability to determine the level of bomb damage. This ability replaces the slayer talent gained at 2nd level.

Talented Discoveries: An insurgent gains access to the following alchemist discovery, or may select any alchemist discovery that modifies his bombs in place of a slayer talent. He counts his slayer level as his alchemist level for the purpose of qualifying for discoveries. If he has levels in alchemist, these levels stack.

Bore Bomb*: When the saboteur creates a bomb, he may choose to make it a bore bomb. If a bore bomb strikes a wall, gate, siege engine, or similar large, solid, inanimate structure, it ignores half the target's hardness and deals 1 point of damage per saboteur level. If a bore bomb reduces an inanimate target to half its hit points or fewer, it blows a hole 5 feet wide and 5 feet deep in the target.
