Special Abilities

Backward Limbs (Su) A songtwisted is able to bend its body in unusual ways, gaining a +6 racial bonus to Acrobatics checks to escape. However, any time a songtwisted isn’t focusing on their movement, their limbs twist in unnatural arrangements on their own. Another creature can notice the effort required to keep the twisting in check with a successful Sense Motive check (DC = 10 + the songtwisted’s Bluff modifier).

Song Share (Su) A songtwisted can communicate to other songtwisted within 100 feet as if both have telepathy.


Vharrine is a planet with an internal signal, and those near it might start to hear that signal not only through monitoring devices, but also in their thoughts and dreams. The song has caused some to reconsider what might be possible without the limits of conventional morality. While heeding this dark muse, such listeners develop new magical abilities and learn how to reshape themselves. These "songtwisted" beings work together to spread Vharrine’s song throughout the galaxy.
