Improved Evasion: When a Thief fails a Reflex Save to halve damage, she takes half damage anyway.







Deep Cover: A spy becomes able to quiet her mind and completely immerse herself in her cover identity. While she operates under deep cover, divination spells detect only information appropriate to her cover identity; they reveal nothing relating to her spymaster persona. Enchantment spells can effect her as either acting under her covers personality or as her actual person. A spy can swith between these as a full round action allow the caster to make a sense motive check against your bluff check.





Death Attack: If an assassin studies his victim for 3 rounds and then makes a sneak attack with a melee weapon that successfully deals damage, the sneak attack has the additional effect of possibly either paralyzing or killing the target (assassinís choice). While studying the victim, the assassin can undertake other actions so long as his attention stays focused on the target and the target does not detect the assassin or recognize the assassin as an enemy. If the victim of such an attack fails a Fortitude save (DC 10 + the assassinís class level + the assassinís Int modifier) against the kill effect, she dies. If the saving throw fails against the paralysis effect, the victim is rendered helpless and unable to act for 1d6 rounds plus 1 round per level of the assassin. If the victimís saving throw succeeds, the attack is just a normal sneak attack. Once the assassin has completed the 3 rounds of study, he must make the death attack within the next 3 rounds.

If a death attack is attempted and fails (the victim makes her save) or if the assassin does not launch the attack within 3 rounds of completing the study, 3 new rounds of study are required before he can attempt another death attack.

Doing a Death attack does not consume a inspiration point for the sneak attack damage.

Hitdie: d6
Class Skills: Appraise, Bluff, Concentration, Craft, Diplomacy, Disable Device, Forgery, Gather Information, Heal, Knowledge (Local, Nature, Architecture and Engineering, History), Profession, Search, Sense Motive, Speak Language, Survival.


Archetype (Novice): Choose a path



Transportable lab: An alchemist can craft anywhere at any time as long as she has her pack. She starts off with one at first level weighting 30lbs, replacing a lost or damaged take 100gp.
Wild gathering: A alchemist can gather material for her alchemical items by succeeding a survival or knowledge nature check equal to its craft dc. Dm may apply modifier for the more exotic items.
Hidden Uses: By spending a inspiration point an alchemist may apply one of the following effects when the uses the listed items:


Hidden Uses

Distracting Blast: If you ready an action to throw a thunderstone at the square an opponent occupies, you can disrupt his actions. The sudden bang from the stone's detonation ruins your foe's concentration, possibly spoiling his attack or his attempt to cast a spell. If the target of this blast was casting a spell when you threw the thunderstone, he must make a Concentration check opposed by your Craft (alchemy) check. If you succeed on this check, his spell is ruined. If the target was not casting a spell, he must make a Will save opposed by your Craft (alchemy) check or take a -2 penalty on attack rolls, checks, and saves until the beginning of your next turn.
Fiery Blaze: To use this maneuver, you must first strike a creature with a container of lantern oil or alchemist's fire. On your next turn, you must strike the creature with a spell or weapon attack that deals fire damage. If you do so, the creature takes an extra 1d6 points of fire damage and catches on fire if it is not already in flames.
Tanglefoot Defense: By tearing open a tanglefoot bag and spreading its contents across an area, you can create a vexing barrier that hinders an opponent's approach. As a standard action, you can transform a single square of clear terrain into difficult terrain through the use of a tanglefoot bag. This effect persists for 10 minutes before the tanglefoot bag loses its potency.
Smoke Funnel: By cupping your hands about a smoke stick you can shape how the smoke forms. Doing this you can create a 15 cone or a 20ft line in front of your character as a standard action. This smoke ast for one round before dispersing.
Melt Mechanism: As a full round action you can pour acid into a lock or some mechanical device in order to destroy a lock. Roll a d20. On a 1-5 its jammed, 6-10 its unlock dc raises by 5, 11-15 its unlock dc goes down by 5, 16-20 it is unlocked. This effect occurs after 1d4 rounds after the initial pour. Add a cumulative +5 to your effect roll each time you pour acid into the lock. This increase the amount of time by 1d4 rounds for each pour.
Blinding Flare: As a Full round action you may cause a sun rod to consume itself in a instant blinding everyone within 20ft who fail a (dc 15 + dex mod) reflex save for 1d6 (-con mod) rounds.
Swift strike: As a swift action you may light a tindertwing and a fire if it is in a pocket. As a free action if it is already in hand.





Animal Companion: The Animal Trainer gains a +2 bonus on wild empathy and Handle Animal checks made regarding her animal companions. The Animal Trainer may have more than one animal companion, but she must divide up her effective Animal Trainer level between her companions to determine the abilities of each companion. For example, a 4th-level Animal Trainer can have one 4th-level companion, two 2nd-level companions, or one 1st-level and one 3rd-level companion. Each time a Animal Trainer level increases, she must decide how to allocate the increase among her animal companions (including the option of adding a new 1st-level companion). Once a druid level is allocated to a particular companion, it cannot be redistributed while that companion is in the Animal Trainer service. A Animal Trainer may begin play with an animal companion selected from the following list: badger, camel, dire rat, dog, riding dog, eagle, hawk, horse (light or heavy), owl, pony, snake (Small or Medium viper), or wolf. If the campaign takes place wholly or partly in an aquatic environment, the following creatures are also available: porpoise, Medium shark, and squid.
Raise Abroad: A animal trainer can train both on the go and in the middle of the wilderness. As long as he is doing nothing more than walking or riding he can train any animals he has at -5 while traveling or in a non battle environment without any tools. If he has tools suited for the trick he is trying to train he only takes -2.
Wild Empathy: A Animal Trainer can improve the attitude of an animal using a inspiration point. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check made to improve the attitude of a person. The Animal Trainer rolls 1d20 and adds her Animal Trainer level and her Charisma modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the Animal Trainer and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. A Animal Trainer can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but she takes a -4 penalty on the check.

Each ability requires both a minimum Skald level and a minimum number of ranks in the Perform skill to qualify; if a bard does not have the required number of ranks in at least one Perform skill, he does not gain the bardic music ability until he acquires the needed ranks. Starting a bardic music effect is a standard action. Some bardic music abilities require concentration, which means the bard must take a standard action each round to maintain the ability. Even while using bardic music that doesnít require concentration, a bard cannot cast spells, activate magic items by spell completion (such as scrolls), spell trigger (such as wands), or command word. Just as for casting a spell with a verbal component, a deaf bard has a 20% chance to fail when attempting to use bardic music. If he fails, the attempt still counts against his daily limit.

Lesser Tales:


Inspire Courage (Su): A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to inspire courage in his allies (including himself), bolstering them against fear and improving their combat abilities. To be affected, an ally must be able to hear the bard sing. The effect lasts for as long as the ally hears the bard sing and for 5 rounds thereafter. An affected ally receives a +1 morale bonus on saving throws against charm and fear effects and a +1 morale bonus on attack and weapon damage rolls. At the noted level this bonus increases by 1 (+2 at 4th, +3 at 6th). Inspire courage is a mind-affecting ability.
Inspire Caution(Su): A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to inspire caution in his allies (including himself). To be affected, an ally must be able to hear the bard sing. The effect lasts for as long as the ally hears the bard sing and for 5 rounds thereafter. An affected ally receives a +2Aac against Attacks of Opportunity and a +1 Ac as a dodge bonus. At the noted level this bonus increases by 1 (+3/+2 at 4th, +4/+3 at 6th respectively). Inspire Caution is a mind-affecting ability.
Inspire Sorrow: A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to evoke sorrow and lament in his enemies. To be affected, an enemy must be able to hear the dirgesinger perform. The effect lasts for as long as the enemy hears the skald perform and for 5 rounds thereafter. An affected enemy takes a ó2 penalty on Will saving throws and a ó2 penalty on attack rolls and weapon damage rolls. A successful Will save (DC 10 + the skald ranks in Perform) negates the effect and makes the character immune to that skald song of sorrow ability for 24 hours. Song of sorrow is a mind-affecting ability.
Fascinate (Sp):A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to cause one or more creatures to become fascinated with him. Each creature to be fascinated must be within 90 feet, able to see and hear the bard, and able to pay attention to him. The bard must also be able to see the creature. The distraction of a nearby combat or other dangers prevents the ability from working. For every three levels a bard attains beyond 1st, he can target one additional creature with a single use of this ability. To use the ability, a bard makes a Perform check. His check result is the DC for each affected creatureís Will save against the effect. If a creatureís saving throw succeeds, the bard cannot attempt to fascinate that creature again for 24 hours. If its saving throw fails, the creature sits quietly and listens to the song, taking no other actions, for as long as the bard continues to play and concentrate (up to a maximum of 1 round per bard level). While fascinated, a target takes a -4 penalty on skill checks made as reactions, such as Listen and Spot checks. Any potential threat requires the bard to make another Perform check and allows the creature a new saving throw against a DC equal to the new Perform check result. Any obvious threat, such as someone drawing a weapon, casting a spell, or aiming a ranged weapon at the target, automatically breaks the effect. Fascinate is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting ability.



Archetype (Journeymen):

Focused Tricks of the Trade: You may spend edge points to give a skill check a +2 bonus as a swift action. You may spend a number of expertise points on a skill check equal to 1/2 your class level (rounded down; minimum 1). This only applies 3 skills that are class skills for you. Pick when you gain this ability.
Learned Knack: Gain one knack as noted in the expert class, treat barbarian skill list and skald archetype list as class archetype skills.
Advanced Tales: You may now use Advanced Tales.


Advanced Tales:

Inspire Competence (Su): A skald of 3rd level and higher with 6 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to help an ally succeed at a task. The ally must be within 30 feet and able to see and hear the bard. The bard must also be able to see the ally. The ally gets a +2 competence bonus on skill checks with a particular skill as long as he or she continues to hear the bardís music. Certain uses of this ability are infeasible. The effect lasts as long as the bard concentrates, up to a maximum of 2 minutes. A bard canít inspire competence in himself. Inspire competence is a mind-affecting ability.
Inspire Grief: A skald of 3rd level or higher with 6 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to inspire maddening grief in a living creature. The creature must be within 60 feet of the skald and able to hear him. Unless the target succeeds on a Will save (DC 10 + the skalds ranks in Perform), she becomes confused for as long as the dirgesinger performs and for 5 rounds thereafter. Song of grief is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting ability.
Inspire Fear: A bard with 3 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use song or poetics to inspire fear in his enemies . To be affected the targets must hear the skald sing, the effect last for 1 round plus the Skalds class level. A Will saving throw (DC 10 + Ĺ bardís level + bardís Cha modifier) negates the effect. All who fail their check take become shaken (takes a Ė2 penalty on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and ability checks.). At the noted level this penalty increases by 1 (-3 at 4th, -4 at 6th). Inspire Fear is a mind-affecting ability.



Archetype (Expert):

Storytellers Presence: Treated as being under the effect of the spell Sanctuary while performing a Tale with a caster level equal to your class level. It lasts as long as you perform.
Learned Knack: Gain one knack as noted in the expert class, treat barbarian skill list and skald archetype list as class archetype skills.
Greater Tales: You may now use Greater Tales.


Greater Tales:

Suggestion (Sp): A skald of 5th level or higher with 8 or more ranks in a Perform skill can make a suggestion (as the spell) to a creature that he has already fascinated. Using this ability does not break the bardís concentration on the fascinate effect, nor does it allow a second saving throw against the fascinate effect. Making a suggestion doesnít count against a bardís daily limit on bardic music performances. A Will saving throw (DC 10 + Ĺ bardís level + bardís Cha modifier) negates the effect. This ability affects only a single creature (but see mass suggestion, below). Suggestion is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting, language dependent ability.
Inspire Horror: A skald of 5th level and higher with 8 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use his music or poetics to an strike a horrifying chord in the hearts of his enemies. Any enemy within 60 feet who can hear the dirgesinger must succeed on a Will save (DC 10 + the dirgesinger's ranks in Perform) or take 1d6 points of Strength damage and 1d6 points of Dexterity damage. A creature that is affected by a dirgesinger's song of horror or a creature that successfully saves against this effect cannot be affected by the same dirgesinger's song of horror for 24 hours.
Inspire Freedom: A skald of 5th level and higher with 8 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use music or poetics to create an effect equivalent to the break enchantment spell (caster level equals the characterís bard level). Using this ability requires 1 minute of uninterrupted concentration and music, and it functions on a single target within 30 feet. A bard canít use song of freedom on himself.



Archetype (Master): Choose One:

Two Chords: Can sing two songs at once but uses 4 uses of Tales.
Lure The Mindless: Can now affect intelligent targets that are immune to mind affecting abilities but the recieve +4 to their save.
Experienced Wanderer: Regains 1 edge each round in and out of combat.
Mass Suggestion (Sp): This ability functions like suggestion, above, except that a bard of 6th level or higher with 9 or more ranks in a Perform skill can make the suggestion simultaneously to any number of creatures that he has already fascinated. Mass suggestion is an enchantment (compulsion), mind-affecting, language-dependent ability.







Rangers are those who watch over the land or the people who live within it.

Arms and Armor Proficiency: Simple, Martial Weapons, Light Armor, Medium Armor and Shields.


Archetype (Novice):

Track: A ranger gains Track as a bonus feat.
Wild Empathy (Ex): A ranger can improve the attitude of an animal. This ability functions just like a Diplomacy check to improve the attitude of a person. The ranger rolls 1d20 and adds his ranger level and his Charisma modifier to determine the wild empathy check result. The typical domestic animal has a starting attitude of indifferent, while wild animals are usually unfriendly. To use wild empathy, the ranger and the animal must be able to study each other, which means that they must be within 30 feet of one another under normal visibility conditions. Generally, influencing an animal in this way takes 1 minute, but, as with influencing people, it might take more or less time. The ranger can also use this ability to influence a magical beast with an Intelligence score of 1 or 2, but he takes a -4 penalty on the check.
Favored Environment: The ranger selects a specific natural environment and gains bonuses when in that environment. At 1st level, a ranger may select a natural environment which are Aquatic, Desert (Cold, Temperate, Hot), Forest (Cold, Temperate), Hills, Marsh(Cold, Temperate), Mountain, Plains, Underground, and Urban. Due to the ranger's experience in that environment, he gains a +2 bonus on Hide, Listen, Move Silently, Spot, and Survival checks when using these skills in that environment. He also gains the same bonus on Knowledge (nature) checks made in association with that environment (or on Knowledge (dungeoneering) checks made in association with underground environments, if the ranger has selected underground as a favored environment, or Knowledge local in a Urban environment).

Don't know if it'll be any use to you, but I made a 3.5 E10 Variant that worked with my 3.5 Overhaul. It might give you some ideas for what you are trying to do.
