Class FeaturesWeapon and Armor Proficiency: A forester is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, and light armors. While wearing light armor, the forester suffers from no arcane spell failure chance.
Skirmish (Ex): Whenever the forester moves at least 10 feet on her turn all of her attacks that turn do an extra 1d6 damage and gain a +2 bonus to armor class. At 3rd level that damage increases to 2d6 and increase by a d6 every other level from there on. Wearing medium or heavy armor interferes with the forester’s mobility and prevents her from using her Skirmish ability.
Spells: A forester has the ability to cast a small number of arcane spells, which are drawn from the forester spell list. A forester must choose and prepare her spells in advance.
To prepare or cast a spell, a forester must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throws against a forester's spell is 10 + the spell level + the forester's Charisma modifier.
Like other spellcasters, a forester can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. Her base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Forester. In addition, she receives bonus spells per day if she has a high Charisma score.
A forester must spend 1 hour per day in quiet meditation to regain her daily allotment of spells. She must get at least 8 hours of rest prior to preparing her spells. A forester may prepare and cast any spell on the forester spell list, provided that she can cast spells of that level, but she must choose which spells to prepare during her daily meditation.
|Spells Per Day|
Track (Ex): The forester adds half her level (minimum +1) to Survival skill checks to identify and follow tracks.
Archery Master (Ex): At 2nd level the forester gets Point Blank Shot as a bonus feat.
At 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th level she can select from the following feats as a bonus feat: Far Shot, Improved Precise Shot, Manyshot, Pinpoint Targeting, Precise Shot, Rapid Shot, and Shot on the Run. She must meet all prerequisites for the feat to take that feat.
Fast Movement (Ex): Starting at 2nd level the forester adds 10 feet to her base movement so long as she is wearing no armor or light armor. At 10th level the speed increases by an additional +10 feet.
Evasion (Ex): At 3rd level the forester’s reflexes become finely honed. Anytime she makes a Reflex saving throw for an attack that would normally do half damage, she takes no damage. This ability only works when the forester is wearing no armor or light armor, and is not denied her Dexterity bonus to her armor class.
Mobile Stealth (Ex): The forester can make a Stealth skill check even when moving at full speed, so long as she is not observed and is wearing no armor or light armor.
Hunter’s Eye (Ex): Starting at 8th level whenever a forester’s allies have an opponent flanked, the forester can make ranged attacks or cast ranged spells against that opponents as if she were part of the flank.
Woodland Stride (Ex): Starting at 9th level, a forester may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at her normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment.
Thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that are enchanted or magically manipulated to impede motion, however, still affect her.
Deadly Shot (Ex): Once per round as a free action the forester can use this ability to make a ranged attack that if it hits reduces the target’s land speed by one-half for 1d4 rounds starting at 12th level.
Woodland Guardian (Ex): Staring at 16h level the forester no longer threatens attacks of opportunity when using ranged weapons in melee combat.
Woodland Master (Su): At 20th level, whenever the forester is within a wooded area she gains DR 5/- and Fast Healing 10.
