"WHO DARE ENTER THE LAIR OF THE ROBOTIC GECKOMISTRESS?"
Hero Shrews appear as particularly bulky Shrews wearing tiny little capes. Believing themselves the protectors of the innocent and the saviors of the world leads them to fight evil at every opportunity. Unfortunately given the Shrews slightly subpar intellect those opportunities come more often than strictly necessary due to little misunderstandings.
Hero Shrews pretty much fight like comic book superheroes: loud, up close, and with lots of collateral damage.
Ray Vision(Su): Once every 1d4 rounds the Hero Shrew unleashes an energy ray (choose Cold, Electricity, Fire, Force, or Sonic damage when making the Shrew). This is a ranged touch attack with a range of 30 feet doing 2d4 damage of the chosen Energy type. The Hero Shrews Energy Resistance is the same type of Energy chosen for their Ray Vision.
Superhero(Ex): Hero Shrews take no Size Penalties to opposed Combat Checks.
Skills: Shrews have a +4 racial bonus on Hide and Move Silently checks, and a +8 racial bonus on Balance, Climb, and Swim checks. A Shrew can always choose to take 10 on Climb checks, even if rushed or threatened. A Shrew uses its Dexterity modifier instead of its Strength modifier for Climb and Swim checks. A Shrew has a +8 racial bonus on any Swim check to perform some special action or avoid a hazard. It can always choose to take 10 on a Swim check, even if distracted or endangered. It can use the run action while swimming, provided it swims in a straight line.
