Apex Predator (Ranger Archetype)

The apex predator may be close to nature, but he also dominates it, through his use of tools and weapons. He understands nature, but the wilds are a skill set, and do not define him.

Proficiencies: An apex predator is proficient with simple weapons, as well as light armor and bucklers. In addition, if this is the character’s first level in any class, he may select a martial tradition of his choice.

This modifies weapon and armor proficiencies.

Casting: An apex predator may combine spheres and talents to create magical effects. An apex predator is considered a Low-Caster and uses Wisdom as her casting ability modifier. (Note: All casters gain 2 bonus talents and may select a casting tradition the first time they gain the casting class feature.)

This replaces the spells class feature, wild empathy, and endurance.

Spell Pool: The apex predator gains a small reservoir of energy she can call on to create truly wondrous effects, called a spell pool. This pool contains a number of spell points equal to her class level + her Wisdom modifier. This pool replenishes once per day after roughly 8 hours of rest.

Magic Talents: An apex predator gains a magic talent every time she gains a caster level.

Combat Training (Ex): The apex predator is considered a Proficient practitioner, gaining spheres and talents as appropriate. Apex predators use Wisdom as their practitioner modifier.

This replaces all combat style feats.

Wilderness Scout: At 1st level, the apex predator gains the Scout sphere as a bonus sphere, or a talent from that sphere if she possesses it already. When using her scout ability, she may substitute a Survival check for the appropriate Knowledge check at a -5 penalty. At 8th level, she no longer takes a -5 penalty.

This replaces tracking and swift tracking.
