Ir shiftr
A Shifter has no form they call their own. Instead, they clothe themselves in whatever shape is most expedient at the time. While others base their identities largely on their external forms, the shifter actually comes closer to their true self through all of their transformations. Of necessity, their sense of self is based not on their outward form, but on their soul, which is truly the only constant about them. It is the inner strength of that soul that enables them to take on any shape and remain themselves within.

A Shifter can choose shapes through their bonus feats. Each of the 16 Form Feats offers 4 shapes to assume, in increasing order of power.

When a Shifter tries to shift shape they must pass a modified Wisdom check. The roll is d20 + WIS modifier + Shifter level. The DC is equal to the shape's base DC + the Shifter's Tiredness. The base DC for the first and weakest of the 4 forms is always 5. The base DC for other forms depends upon the Shifter's Shape Shift feat.

The Shifter's Tiredness increases after each successfull shape shift. This increase is 1 point for the 1st and 2nd forms, 2 points for the 3rd form and 3 points for the 4th and strongest form of any Form Feat. Resting resets the Shifter's Tiredness to 0.

A Shifter can use each Form Feat as often as they like, until they fail 2 of these checks for shapes granted by that feat. They can still attempt shapes from other Form Feats if that happens.
