Astral Recoil [one-action] (occult) Frequency once per minute; Trigger The shulsaga’s last action was a successful melee Strike against an astral form created by the astral projection ritual or a similar effect; Effect The shulsaga attempts to counteract the effect projecting the creature onto the Astral Plane, with the effects of a 5th-level dispel magic spell (counteract modifier +18).

Astral Shock An astrally projected creature whose astral form is slain by a shulsaga takes a -2 circumstance penalty to the subsequent Fortitude saving throw to resist the strain.

Disk Rider A shulsaga can ride atop any floating disk they create. While mounted on a floating disk, a shulsaga gains a +10-foot enhancement bonus to their fly Speed, and the shulsaga can use their feet to wield the disk as a heavy shield (Hardness 5, Hp 20, Bt 10). A broken disk grants no bonus to Speed, and the spell ends if the disk is destroyed.

Hop On [free-action] Frequency once per round; Requirements The shulsaga is adjacent to a floating disk they created; Effect The shulsaga Steps into the disk’s space and rides atop the disk. They can also use this action to dismount from their disk.


Shulsagas patrol the Astral Plane to protect the nascent demiplanes that form there, warding off those who would usurp the demiplanes or despoil them with unwelcome philosophies. This guardianship extends to the Astral Plane as a whole, as shulsagas not only exile trespassers, but also seek out and close planar rifts. Especially egregious breaches rile these ennosites to the point of invasion, and shulsaga raiding parties often extend their attacks well beyond a portal to ensure the threat’s utter destruction.

Though often stern and standoffish, shulsagas occasionally befriend and recruit strangers to help them repair planar wounds and track down foes of the natural order.

Among ennosites, shulsagas are the most inclined to adopt and nurture iotons, forming small family units. Communities work together to instill enough culture and identity for these iotons to take on permanent forms-those of adolescent shulsagas. Each shulsaga’s gender reflects of their evolving identity, influenced in part by the blend of traits their communities imparted and their own thoughts.
