The power of Heatran flows in this soulmeld!
Heatran Carapace 
Descriptors: Fire, Earth
Classes: Totemist
Chakra: Crown, Feet, Hands, Heart, Soul, Totem
Saving Throw: See text

Your body becomes a fiery red, covered in flecks of gray. Your face in particular has a shining gray mask covering it, as sturdy and rugged as a mountain.

With this soulmeld, totemists take on the qualities of Heatran, mighty guardian of volcanic peaks. It's popular among totemists who need to withstand fire, scale cliffs, withstand attacks, and call forth roaring magma to attack and immobilize enemies. The Heatran carapace is very flexible defensively, and carries a few offensive tricks as well.

You gain damage reduction 5/adamantine and fire resistance 5 for having this soulmeld shaped.

Essentia: You gain fire anti-resistance equal to twice the amount of essentia you have invested in this soulmeld. (For example, if you have 2 points of essentia invested into your Heatran carapace, you have fire anti-resistance 4.)  

Chakra Bind (Crown)

The gray mask over your face becomes solid in form. It is a mask of steel. The mask fortifies your body even further, helping you deflect blows.

You gain an enhancement bonus to your Armor Class equal to +2 per point of essentia invested in the Heatran carapace. You also have light fortification (25% chance of negating a critical hit). 

Chakra Bind (Heart)

The soulmeld's essence of fire reaches deep into your body, fortifying you against fire-based assaults.

Your fire resistance increases by 4 points per invested essentia point. 

Chakra Bind (Hands)

Your hands become like metal fresh from the forge, and the air around them shimmers from the heat.

Your fire anti-resistance improves to 4 per invested essentia point. This overrides the soulmeld's standard essentia investment benefit. 

Chakra Bind (Feet)

Your feet gain claws on their soles, enabling you to easily cling to walls.

You gain a climb speed equal to 5 feet per point of essentia invested into this soulmeld. You have a +8 racial bonus to Climb checks. You may take 10 on any Climb check, even if rushed or threatened, and automatically succeed on any Climb checks pertaining to mundane tasks. In addition to all this, you gain a +8 competence bonus to Jump checks. 

Chakra Bind (Soul)

Your body becomes blazing red and as flexible as magma. Physical attacks basically bounce off of you.

Your damage reduction increases by 4 points per invested essentia point. In addition, you gain a +15 enhancement bonus to Jump checks (this does not scale with invested essentia). 

Chakra Bind (Totem)

Your body becomes blazing red, with small gray flecks suggesting metal that has been melted by unimaginable heat, then reshaped into an impenetrable shell. Your face is covered with a grey mask, hard and imposing as steel, strong as a mountain.

You gain a +4 enhancement bonus to your Strength and Charisma scores (these do not scale with invested essentia). You gain an aura of intense fire, similar to that granted by the Elemental Aura feat, which does 1d6 fire damage per point of invested essentia to all within 10 feet of you.

You may also use Heatran's signature Magma Storm attack: At will, you may launch a serpentine torrent of magma as a ranged touch attack at a single target within Medium range (100 feet + 10 feet/meldshaper level). If you hit, the target takes 3d12 fire damage per point of invested essentia and is immediately entangled. The victim can only break free with an Escape Artist check (DC = Soulmeld save DC × 2), and until it does, it takes 1d12 fire damage per point of invested essentia per round. If the target has not escaped in 5 rounds, it is automatically released at the end of the 5th round.
