  • Medium: Reborn samsarans are Medium creatures and have no bonuses or penalties due to their size.
  • Normal Speed: Reborn samsarans have a base speed of 30 feet.
  • Low-Light Vision: Reborn samsarans can see twice as far as humans in conditions of dim light.
  • Psychic Attunement: Reborn samsarans receive Psychic Virtuoso as a bonus feat at 1st level. Those who can't use occult skill unlocks at 1st level instead gain the Psychic Sensitivity feat as a bonus feat.
  • Reborn Magic: A reborn samsaran with a Charisma score of 11 or higher can cast the following spells (as per the psychic magic universal monster rule, using his Charisma modifier to determine the DCs): burst of insight (1 PE), detect psychic significance (0 PE), object reading (2 PE), and psychic reading (1 PE). The caster level is equal to the reborn samsaran's level. The reborn samsaran has a reservoir of 5 PE per day.

  • Psychic Learning (Su) When a reborn samsaran expends psychic energy to cast psychic reading to identify a humanoid's class, he temporarily treats two of the target's class skills as if they were class skills for him. He can use these skills untrained and gains a +2 insight bonus on such checks. These benefits last for 24 hours or until the reborn samsaran spends psychic energy to cast psychic reading again.
  • Languages Reborn samsarans begin play speaking Common and Samsaran. Those reborn samsarans with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: any human language, Abyssal, Aquan, Auran, Celestial, Draconic, Giant, Ignan, Infernal, and Terran.

Mysterious humanoids with pale blue flesh and transparent blood like the waters of a trickling brook, samsarans are ancient creatures even in their youth. A samsaran's life is not a linear progression from birth to death, but rather a circle of birth to death to rebirth. Whenever a samsaran dies, it reincarnates anew as a young samsaran to live a new life. Her past memories remain vague and indistinct—and each new incarnation is as different a creature and personality as a child is to a parent.

Samsarans appear similar to humans, with dark hair and solid white eyes with no pupils or irises. Skin tones are generally shades of light blue.

Sometimes a samsaran perishes under especially dramatic emotional circumstances, causing its soul to wander the Ethereal Plane before finally reincarnating. This spirit journey frays the samsaran's connection to his past lives but strengthens his ability to read others' pasts and present.

Samsaran Life Wheel

This handheld wooden spool spins freely within a boxlike housing. Inscribed upon the exterior of the spool are dozens of samsaran prayers along with names or symbols associated with a samsaran's past lives. Samsarans believe that spinning the wheel during meditation strengthens the spiritual connections between their former lives. If a samsaran meditates with her wheel for at least 10 minutes about a Knowledge (history) question relating to her own history or the histories of her past lives, she gains a +1 insight bonus on the check.
