Coat of the Undercity, GreaterSource Ultimate Intrigue pg. 245
Aura moderate transmtuation; CL 9th
Slot chest; Price 37,500 gp; Weight 5 lbs.
DescriptionThis coat functions much like the coat of the undercity, except the wearer can transform into a venomroach (Bestiary 2 58) as if using vermin shape II.
Alternatively, the wearer can take the form of a giant cockroach swarm. This swarm of Tiny vermin has a number of hit points equal to the wearer, uses the wearer’s mental ability scores, skills, and saving throws, and gains a +2 resistance bonus on saving throws against mind-affecting effects instead of being immune to them. The swarm otherwise has the same movement, Armor Class, swarm traits, swarm damage, distraction and disease abilities as a typical rat swarm (including the abilities having a DC of 12). While in swarm form, the wearer can’t use any of her activated abilities (extraordinary, supernatural, spell-like, or otherwise), cast spells, or use items, although she can end the effect as a standard action.
Either of these transformations can occur only in an urban environment. The wearer can remain transformed for up to 9 minutes per day. This duration doesn’t need to be consecutive, but must be used in 1-minute increments.
