Theosis Feats As the archon gains power the divine energy starts to reshape their physical form. Most take on fantistical or horrific beastal forms. Others become ethereal clouds of positive or negative divine energy. Some choose to channel this energy into artefacts to maintain their human form at the risk of having their power stolen.

Incorporeal: Natural Armor: Human looking skin: +5AC , Scales, Fur, etc: +15AC, Heavy Shell: +25AC, -10 Dex, 1/4 movement speed. Size Increase: +1 Size Category, +1 more if the archon sacrifices bipedal form.

Speed: x4 Speed to all movement forms. Cannot get with heavy shell natural armor. Flight: Like 3rd level spell, but at will Wings: Lesser form of Flight & +1 secondary natural attack (wing buffet)

Natural attacks: any 2, 1 primary one secondary. Bite, Claws, Tail, Horns. half damage if retractable. Breath Weapon/Energy Beams (Usually hand or eyes) Energy Drain Disease Touch

Extra Heads: +1 head based attack Extra Arms: +1 arm based attack

Bound Weapon (+10 weapon for Archon, an intelligent weapon trying to meet the archons goals for others) Bound Armor (+10 armor for Archon, an intelligent weapon trying to meet the archons goals for others) Bound Animal Companion (Like Druid animal compaion lvl 20), can choose a swarm or creatures instead of a single one.


Natural Attacks - At 8th level, you gain 2 claws (2d6 , primary both get full Str), a bite attack (1d8, secondary +1/2 str). At 9th level, you gain tail slap (3d6, secondary +double Str) and 2 wing slams (1d8, secondary +1/2 str) . These natural weapons are treated as epic weapons.

Tail Sweep (Ex): This special attack allows the dragon to sweep with its tail as a standard action. The sweep affects a half-circle with a radius of 30 feet , extending from an intersection on the edge of the dragon’s space in any direction. Creatures within the swept area are affected if they are four or more size categories smaller than the dragon. A tail sweep automatically deals 3d6 +double Str. Affected creatures can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage DC 50.

Breath Weapon - At tenth level you Gain the ability to breathe a cone of force that tears through creatures and objects in its area to devastating effect. 50d12 creatures caught in the area can attempt Reflex saves to take half damage; the DC 50


A couple general comments:

FInd replace dragon archon.

I think all Archons should get Aura.

I believe the physical changes are permanent correct it is not an alternate form so much as the conection to the divine changes there true form. A paragraph about that under the Theosis Feats heading could be cool. I would also let archons bind the power to items creating artefacts for your angel archteype characters.

I would target the following archetype forms:

Dragon (including hydras and kirin type beasts) Angel/Warrior (Think Thor type) Large animals (like Elephant, Bull or Wolves gods, Think Aslan) Undead (Mummy, Lich, Vampire types,think Mumra)

Then We give them each abilities: Dragon- Wings, Flight, Bite, Claws, Tail, Horns, Extra Heads, Breath Weapon, Natural Armor Angel/Warrior- Wings, Flight, Bound Weapon, Bound Armor, Extra Arms Large animals- Varies alot Natural Armor, Bite, Claws, Tail, Horns, Wings, Speed, summon(animals)Undead (Mummy, Lich, Vampire types,think Mumra) Energy Drain, Disease Touch, Natural Armor, summon(swarms)

Abilities they should all have: Aura, Immune to Force, Deflecting Force

It might be worth redistributing the feat progression a little bit.
