Beings of Ib

Source Pathfinder #111: Dreams of the Yellow King pg. 87
Living examples of this time-forgotten race may yet exist on distant worlds, or they could be resurrected by curious spellcasters. A living being of Ib is not a very dangerous creature, but those who gain levels in spellcasting classes can become quite formidable; they overwhelmingly prefer divine spellcasting classes and typically venerate Bokrug.

Living beings of Ib are defined by their class levels—they do not have racial Hit Dice. All living beings of Ib have the following racial traits. They are Medium- sized aberrations. A being of Ib is a 14-point race if you use the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Race Guide's
