Nature's Blade (Ranger Archetype)

While many rangers serve as the militant arm of nature’s mortal worshipers, nature’s blades are far more militant and skilled in the arts of combat than most of their peers.

Proficiencies: Nature’s blades are proficient with simple weapons, as well as light armor and bucklers. In addition, if this is this character’s first level in any class, they may select a martial tradition of their choice.

This modifies weapon and armor proficiencies.

Combat Training (Ex): A nature’s blade is considered an Adept practitioner, gaining spheres and talents as appropriate. Nature’s blades use Wisdom as their practitioner modifier.

This ability replaces the ranger’s spells class feature and the favored enemy class feature gained at 1st level. Rangers with this ability instead gain their first instance of favored enemy at 5th level.

Nature’s Allies: At 4th level, the nature’s blade can choose to not gain a hunter’s bond, but may instead expand their combat training by gaining either the Beastmaster or Warleader sphere and one additional talent from the corresponding sphere as bonus talents. If the nature’s blade already has one of these spheres, he may instead choose any talent from that sphere for which he qualifies.

This modifies hunter’s bond.
