Reference Book: Star Wars Saga Edition Legacy Era Campaign Guide

Among the Yuuzhan Vong, Shapers are the engineers of Biotechnology. Their skills afford them special distinction and allow them to command great respect in Yuuzhan Vong society. Nearly everything used by The Yuuzhan Vong Empire, from their world-affecting terraformers to simple garments, are manufactured by Shapers.

Shapers once adhered to strict protocols that acted as blueprints for their creations. Violation of Shaper protocols could result in harsh punishments and accusations of heresy, but during The Legacy Era these repercussions are generally ignored by Yuuzhan Vong who are far removed from their people. This allows some Shapers to use their biotechnical expertise on non-Yuuzhan Vong- a practice that is unpredictable and oftentimes abominable.

Examples of Shapers in Star Wars Edit

Ahsi Yim, Ch'Gang Hool, Ghithra Dal, Kae Kwaad, Kotaa Zun-qin, Mezhan Kwaad, Nen Yim, Qelah Kwaad, Suung Aruh, Taug Molou, Tih Qiqah, Tjulan Kwaad, Tsun Qel, Yakun Kwaad, Yal Phaath, Zhul Yim.

Prerequisites Edit

To qualify to become a Shaper, a character must fulfill the following criteria:

Game Rule Information Edit

The following are the features of the Shaper Prestige Class:

Shaper Leveling Statistics
LEVEL BASE ATTACK BONUS CLASS FEATURES
1st +0 Defense Bonuses, Talent
2nd +1 Shaper Lore +1
3rd +2 Talent
4th +3 Shaper Lore +2
5th +3 Talent
6th +4 Shaper Lore +3, Shaper Hand
7th +5 Talent
8th +6 Shaper Lore +4
9th +6 Talent
10th +7 Shaper Lore +5

Hit PointsEdit

At each level, Shapers gain 1d8 Hit Points + their Constitution modifier.

Force Points Edit

Shapers, like all Yuuzhan Vong, never gain Force Points.

Defense Bonuses Edit

At 1st level, Shapers gain a +4 Class bonus to their Will Defense, and a +2 Class bonus to their Fortitude Defense.

Talents Edit

At every odd-numbered level (1st, 3rd, 5th, and so on), the Shaper selects a Talent. The Shaper must meet the prerequisites (If any) of the chosen Talent. No Talent can be selected more than once unless expressly indicated. A Shaper can select a Talent from one of the Talent Trees (Shaper).

Shaper Lore Edit

A Shaper is skilled at building, modifying, and repairing Biotechnology. Because of this intimate familiarity, a Shaper gains a bonus equal to one-half their Class Level (Rounded down) on all Knowledge (Life Sciences) and Treat Injury checks made with regards to Biotech, regardless of size or complexity.

Shaper Hand Edit

At 6th level, a Yuuzhan Vong Shaper is expected to replace at least one of their hands with what is known as a Shaper Hand. A Shaper Hand is a bioengineered appendage equipped with a number of tools that assist in tasks specific to Shaping. A Shaper who declines to attach a Shaper Hand when permitted to do so is often viewed with suspicion by other Yuuzhan Vong.

A Shaper Hand replaces the need for a Biotech Tool Kit.
