Distracting Frolic [reaction] (fortune, manipulate) Trigger An ally within 10 feet of the dancer rolls a saving throw against a mental or illusion effect. Effect The target ally can roll the save twice and take the better result.

Death Flare (Light) When the dancer dies, their body combusts in a flare of white Light. All creatures in a 10-foot emanation must succeed at a DC 17 Fortitude save or be dazzled for 1d4 rounds. Calignis that fail this save are also frightened 1. The dancer’s gear and treasure are left in a pile where they died. As this isn’t a magical effect, the Light has no effect within magical darkness.

Dancer’s Curse [one-action] (curse, enchantment, occult, mental) The caligni dancer touches a foe and curses it. If the target fails a DC 18 Will save, it gains clumsy 1 and stupefied 1. The target is then temporarily immune for 24 hours. These conditions persist until the curse is removed. The victim can attempt a new DC 18 Will save once per hour to end the curse.

Sneak Attack The caligni dancer deals 1d6 extra precision damage to flat-footed creatures.


Caligni dancers serve as intermediaries between caligni clans.
