- 1.2 Campaign Information
(Based on the Web Comic Immortal Weakling by Yaruno and Civen) An Immortal Weakling has a strange ability to say the least. If an immortal weakling dies or is injured, they come back at full health. They, unfortunately have no control over this ability. Even the smallest bit of an injury, such as a paper cut or the small amount of muscle damage from working out, can activate their ability. This leads them to normally be extremely physically weak.
Making a Immortal Weakling

Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
All of the following are class features of the Immortal Weakling.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Immortal Weaklings are proficient with all simple and proficient weapons and light armor.
Ineffective Immortality (Su): The Immortal Weakling's ability activates at strange times. After they take direct damage of any kind their ability activates. After 2d6 rounds their body is restored to its perfect state that it was in the past. This ability even activates past death or if knocked unconscious.
Ability Drawback (Su): The Immortal Weakling's immortality is finicky and impossible to control. Due to this even becoming more physically fit activates it as working out involves slightly injuring muscles and them healing back stronger. As their immortality brings them back in time, its like it never happened in the first place. If the Immortal Weakling's Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution raises to over a 16 then their immortality returns it to a 16.
Bonus Feats: The Immortal Weakling can take any non psionic feat as one of their bonus feats if they meet the prerequisites. At level 10 and 20 they can take a feat that they do not meet the stat prerequisites for, but you must have all feats needed before this one.
Taunting: The Immortal Weakling can draw the attention of all hostile enemies within the range to hear them that can understand the language they choose. All enemies that are not currently attacking something will attack the user.
Greater Ineffective Immortality (Su): The Immortal Weakling's ability works even better, to either their joy or dismay. Even if they take indirect damage, such as burning or poisoning, their ability activates. After 2d4 rounds their body is restored to its perfect state that it was in the past. The ability still activates if the user dies or falls unconscious.
Lesser Ability Drawback (Su): This feature works the same as the Ability Drawback but the maximum amount of the 3 scores becomes 18.
Immortality (Su): The Immortal Weakling's ability becomes even more and more potent. Their ability now activates if they become put under a status effect or some sort of debuff in addition to any kind of damage. After 1d6 rounds their body is restored to its perfect state that it was in the past. The ability still activates if the user dies or falls unconscious.
Never Give Up: The Immortal Weakling has very strong determination. After they have already been damaged in some way by an enemy and been healed they have advantage to hit that enemy and in any saving throws from that enemy's abilities. This only works for that enemy and the Immortal Weakling must use their immortality against another enemy to use this again.
Slight Ability Drawback (Su): Whether it be through sheer luck or their ability starting to work for them the Immortal Weakling's ability lets their physical stats increase more. This ability works the same as Ability Drawback but the scores can increase to 20.
Greater Immortality (Su): The Immortal Weakling becomes extremely potent at this point. Their ability now activates and allows them to escape from grapples and bindings by also moving their body back 5 feet when any of the conditions or Immortality occurs. After 1d4 rounds their body is restored to its perfect state as it was in the past and moves them 5 feet backwards to move them out of harms way.
Ability Drawback Workaround (Su): The Immortal Weakling has spent enough time to learn their ability and figured out a workaround to train themselves. They figured out to tell when their body will save a point to return to and can train their body a little before then so they can't restore to a weaker state. They no longer have a limit on any ability scores.
Ultimate Immortality (Su): The Immortal Weakling is finally able to use their ability at will, although it still activates on its own too. The Immortal Weakling can use their ability no matter the circumstance or automatically when taking damage, being placed in a status, being restrained or grappled, or affected by some other non-damaging ability. After 1d2 rounds the Immortal Weakling's body is restored to its perfect state as it was in the past and they can move to any point they have been since the last time they used their immortality, even if they've been killed or knocked unconscious.
If they somehow lost the ability of their immortality they would simply lose all class features. This is not easy and possibly impossible with most conventional methods.
