New Pathfinder Cleric Subdomains for the World of Xhuul

Back in the 3.5 D&D days, I recall there being a ton of cleric domains for the myriad of dieties, especially for the Forgotten Realms setting, over time new domains were added.  Two domains that are not represented in the Pathfinder rules are the Vermin and Ooze domains.  I made up my own version for my campaign, but classified them as subdomains since they really only pertain to two specific dieties,  Anansi and Gyugoolagutha.  This will give a little more flavor to those followers who worship these two goddesses.


Vermin Subdomain
Associated Domain: Animal

Diety: Anansi

Granted Powers: You can take on the traits of vermin as well as control and summon insects.

Your unarmed strikes do not provoke attacks of oppurtunity, deal lethal piercing damage and gain a bonus on damage equal to ½ level (minimum +1). You also get a +2 divine bonus to Climb checks. When using this ability you cannot carry any weapons, shield or other object in your hands while they are transformed. You can use this ability a number of rounds per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
