My PG is a Shade, so:
As creatures of the Plane of Shadows, shades are considered to be of the outsider type.
So far so good. The problem is: if the Shade race is already a little unbalanced, how does the outsider type interact with it?
Do I get the Outsider features?
An outsider has the following features.
8-sided Hit Dice. Base attack bonus equal to total Hit Dice (as fighter). Good Fortitude, Reflex, and Will saves. Skill points equal to (8 + Int modifier, minimum 1) per Hit Die, with quadruple skill points for the first Hit Die.
