Becoming a Kender Ninja
Aspiring kenders dream of becoming part of the Kender Ninja. Loved by Kender society, the Kender Ninja are silent guardians, and sometimes kender soldiers.

Luck Jutsu List
Passwall: For a number rounds equal to your current charisma modifier + your class level, you become semi-incorporeal. You pass through walls as if they arn't there. You also can move through non-living beings as they wern't there, but they can still attack you and you can attack them (You both have a 40% miss chance however). You gain a +8 on move silently checks. You won't fall through objects unless you want to, and if your knocked unconcious the Jutsu ends.
Grand Leap: For a number of rounds equal to your current charisma modifier, you gain +20 on jump checks. You have no limit on your jumps based on height or size, and you are considered to have 30ft running start for each jump. You also take no falling damage from 10ft/level of falling.
Death Attack: By learning this Jutsu the Kender Ninja gains a death attack, just as an Assassin does, except the Fortitude save changes (DC 10+Kender Ninja Level+New Charisma Modifier). The death attack is still considered a Jutsu, and using the death attack counts as one use on the Kender Ninja's Jutsu's Per Day.
Body Clone: This Jutsu allows you to make copies of your self, equal to your charisma modifier. The Copies have an Ac equal to 10+Your Dexterity Modifier+Any Ac bonuses from your class. You don't "control" the copies, but they are you and the player would play as them. You can't communicate with the clones, but when one of them dies you absorb all of their memories sense you made them. A clone appears as you, and has your skill list, but can't attack. The clone has no HP, so when it's struck by an attack it disappears. The clones also only exist a number of minutes equal to 2 times your charisma score. You can only use this Jutsu when you don't already have clones out. You can force any number of clones to vanish as a swift action.
Flaming Projectile: The character takes a thrown weapon and imbues it with the power of explosive power. As a move action, you take a thrown weapon or projectile, a kunai, shuriken, or arrow, and you add 1d6 fire damage/every two levels (min of 1d6). It explodes with a 20ft radius, and everyone inside is set on fire (Ref Dc 10+Your Level+New Cha Mod).
Body Flicker: The character teleports a short distance. You can't bring people with you, but you can't accidently teleport into a wall. You can teleport to a maximum distance of 20ft/level.
Life Drain: The character's natural attacks damage the enemy's physical abilities. When you hit with a natural attack, you do 1d4 Str, Dex, or Con (Your choice) damage to your enemy. (Fort Dc 10+Class Level+New Cha Mod). All your natural attacks do this for a number of rounds equal to your new charisma modifier.
Shadow Beast: The character summons a being made of shadow that serves him. Activating this Jutsu takes (15-your new charisma modifier) rounds. You summon a creature, it's hit dice must be 4 less then your own, or less. It's intelligence, wisdom, and charisma drops to 6 or stays the same if it's lower. It also cannot use any intelligent based abilities or cast spells. It's a shadow beast, meaning that it's a copy of the actual creature. It serves you completely, and you can give it a new order as a standard action. Even though it's intelligence is low it will understand any order given to it. It has half the normal hp but gains a miss chance of 40%. The summoning lasts for a number of minutes equal to your new charisma modifier.
Invisibility: You become invisible as the spell Greater Invisibility. It lasts for a number of minutes equal to 2 times your new charisma modifer.
Regeneration: As a full round action, you focus your body to a point where it heals itself. You gain regeneration, equal to your new charisma modifier. This last for a number of minutes equal to twice your charisma modifier.
Playing a Kender Ninja
Combat: Kender Ninja tend to fill in for any fighter or rogue. They hit hard and move fast.
Advancement: With the high Charisma at the end of this class, an obvious choice would have to be to gain a few levels in sorceror.
Resources: Kender Ninja make up the higher ranks of the Kender military. Kender Ninja work in groups as strike teams, raid teams, and support teams. If working with the Kender military, a Kender Ninja can always expect backup. Otherwise the only help they'll get is from a passing Kender Ninja, which is unlikely.
