Geosurveyor (Ranger Archetype)

Casting: At 1st level, the geosurveyor may combine spheres and talents to create magical effects. The geosurveyor 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 both the favored enemy and spells class features.

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

Magic Talents: A geosurveyor gains a magic talent at 2nd level and every 2 levels thereafter.

Geomancer: A geosurveyor gains the Nature Sphere as a bonus sphere at first level. This replaces the wild empathy class feature.

Favored Package (Su): At 3rd level, a geosurveyor chooses one of the packages from the Nature sphere and gains a +2 bonus to their caster level with that package. At 9th level, this bonus improves by an additional +2, and they may choose another package to gain a +2 bonus with. At 15th level, all previously chosen packages increase their caster level by another +2, and the geosurveyor may choose a third package to gain a +2 bonus. These bonuses stack with other class features with the same name.

This replaces the hunter’s bond class feature.

Master of All Lands (Su): 20th level, the geosurveyor becomes familiar with and comfortable in all possible terrains. His terrain bonus in all favored terrains increases by +2, and he treats all other terrains as if they were favored terrains (+2 bonus). If a naturally occurring condition of temperature or weather requires a check or saving throw, he automatically succeeds. All allies within 60 feet of him gain a +2 bonus on these checks and saves.

This replaces the master hunter class feature.

Recommended Casting Tradition: The classic feel of the ranger can be recreated through taking the verbal casting, prepared caster, and animal shaman (Mind) drawbacks.
