Hunter

Main Page \\ Player Class \\ Hunter

Hunters are skilled trackers, cunning scouts, and deft skirmishers, rangers are adaptable, self sufficient masters of survival, both in and out of combat. The ranger’s unique mastery of weapon styles, skill at hunting all manner of prey, and unparalleled knowledge of his environment, are just a few of the elements that make this class so versatile and popular. From Aragorn to Robin Hood, none of the characters of fiction, myth, and folklore from which the ranger class is drawn makes use of spells. Each has a host of unique abilities and impressive skills, certainly…but they don’t cast spells. Alternate classes are stand alone classes whose basic ideas are very close to an established base class, yet whose required alterations would be too expansive to detail in an archetype. An alternate class operates exactly like a base class, except that a character who takes a level in an alternate class can never take a level in its associated class — in this case, a ranger cannot also take levels in the ranger class or subtypes.

Although similar in many ways to the Pathfinder RPG ranger, the Hunter has no spell casting ability. Instead, the class receives specialized ranger talents (similar to rogue talents) and a deadly stealth attack which can be used within the Hunter’s various favored terrains or against his many favored enemies. The hunter also gains a number of additional class abilities, most notably nature’s healing, which allows him to make use of the Heal skill with much improved results when in a favored environment. Finally, a number of new ranger feats and class archetypes are included, along with a ranger tracking sheet and animal companion character sheet.
