Nothing can stop the elements!
—Rashawdra Hafflesworth, rainid Shapeflayer

Shapeflayers are an order of elementricians, those who wield the elements of fire, earth, air and water through martial arts. They can shape elements by moving their body, using the Modrobenian martial art rellgah. Shapeflayers are, unlike the other elementricians of the Church, equally adept at using hand-to-hand combat in a Tradition called War-Rellgah, which is forbidden to the rest of the Church.

Becoming a Shapeflayer[edit]

Shapeflayers are chosen from among the four Claine classes of elementricians: the Cloudclaine, the Dustclaine, the Emberclaine and the Tideclaine. Constitution is their most important Ability Score.

Class Features[edit]

Like all members of the Church of Modroben, Shapeflayers are expected to be neutral in most affairs (excepting only the defense of death, time and fate). Their class features should not be used except in the manner of church business and in direct self-defense. It is very rare for Shapeflayer powers to be used against anyone other than undead creatures or necromancers. All of the following are class features of the Shapeflayer:

Rellgah War: Shapeflayers are taught the use of Rellgah War, a Tradition of hand-to-hand martial arts based on the more common forms of Rellgah. Unlike standard Rellgah, it is violent, aggressive and murderous.
