Hey, I Know That Guy!

Welcome to Base Class Contest number forty-three! Let's have fun creating some breathtaking base classes! The rules are below, as always. Make an original D&D 3.5 base class and fight for the right to keep your kneecaps!



1. You will be creating an original base class based around a theme of everyday heroes; anything is possible, from a fireman who's actually made of fire, to a policeman who's department deals with the supernatural, so have fun with it! You may not post your entry anywhere else until after the contest is finished. If you have already posted a class under this theme, you may not enter it for this contest. You may use previous homebrew in your classes as long as no mention of the class or any part of the class was made in that homebrew. Aside from that, anything goes--psionics, martial maneuvers, spellcasting, whatever. Go crazy; new mechanics, new feats, new items, and everything else you can think of are fair game!


2. Submissions are due by 23:59 Central Standard Time (USA/Canada) on June 22nd, and should be submitted in the format shown in the next post or in another way that's easy on the eyes. Feel free to play around with fonts, images, and the like; just make sure it's not hard to read.


3. There must be a name, complete class, and fluff for both combat and role playing purposes. Incomplete entries will be disqualified.


4. Anyone can participate. Everyone is allowed only one entry per contest.


5. Plagiarism is strictly forbidden. Violators will be towed disqualified and reported.


The chat thread is here (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?527915-Base-Class-Contest-Chat-Thread-V-I-Scored-at-the-Top-of-My-Base-Class). Feel free to discuss each other's creations, give critique, or talk about what you think of this contest there, but entries (and nothing else) belong in this challenge thread.

You know the drill...

Go!

Image: Chazaquiel, Angel of Fog by Peter Mohrbacher

"Two roads diverged in a yellow wood,
And sorry I could not travel both
And be one traveler, long I stood
And looked down one as far as I could
To where it bent in the undergrowth;

Then took the other, as just as fair,
And having perhaps the better claim,
Because it was grassy and wanted wear;
Though as for that the passing there
Had worn them really about the same,

And both that morning equally lay
In leaves no step had trodden black.
Oh, I kept the first for another day!
Yet knowing how way leads on to way,
I doubted if I should ever come back.

I shall be telling this with a sigh
Somewhere ages and ages hence:
Two roads diverged in a wood, and I—
I took the one less traveled by,
And that has made all the difference."
- Robert Frost, The Road Not Taken

The wanderer is everyone and yet no-one. A wanderer can emulate almost any role in a party, using its exceptional ability to learn almost any skill.

Adventures: Wanderers can have practically any motivations. A wanderer might adventure to find themselves, to gain new skills or for any other reason that might attract an adventurer.

Characteristics: Wanderers are capable of almost anything if built for it.

Alignment: A wanderer can have any alignment. The wanderer is the everyman: anyone can be one.

Religion: Wanderers follow all kinds of deities, and the worship of a deity only sometimes influences the wanderer's powers.

Background: Not traditionally schooled, or else schooled by a variety of different institutions in a smattering of skills, Wanderers mainly learn through practice and self-teaching.

Races: Any race can produce wanderers, although humans are most suited to the class. Some abilities of illumians, an even more versatile subset of humans, can be activated by wanderers despite generally being suited to multiclass characters.

Other Classes: Wanderers's reactions to others and vice versa are as diverse as the wanderers themselves are.

Role: Wanderers can do almost anything that another class can if they build for it.

Adaptation: The three power levels given are designed to allow a DM to tweak the power of the wanderer to put it in line with other classes' power, allowing the wanderer to fight alongside wizards without being overshadowed or to support fighters without obviating them.

GAME RULE INFORMATION
Wanderers have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Any.
Alignment: Any.
Hit Die: d4
Starting Age: As bard
Starting Gold: As druid.

Class Skills:
All skills are class skills of the wanderer.
Skill Points at 1st Level: (2 + Int modifier) Χ 4
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 2 + Int modifier

Class Features

The following are the class features of the wanderer.

Weapon and Armour Proficiency
The wanderer is not proficient in any weapons or armour.

Path of the Wanderer
The wanderer is weird.

Initially, as well as having no proficiencies, few skill points, no class features other than this one and an awful hit die, the wanderer has no strong saves and the lowest base attack bonus progression. They also do not get any of the spells listed on the table!

However, the wanderer gains build points, a resource with which it learns all of its class features and spells, gains additional skill points, and improves its base attack bonus, saving throws and hit die. The number of build points is given on Table: The Wanderer - three values are given, the first of which will allow a wanderer to play at the high power level, the second at the medium power level and the third at the low power level. Wizards, clerics and psions are at the high power level; swordsages, bards and psychic warriors are at the medium power level; fighters and monks are at the low power level. The dungeon master should choose which power level is right for their game, or choose their own progression for build points.

There are a variety of things which the wanderer can spend build points on:

Hit Die: Wanderers can spend 1 build point to increase their hit die size at a particular level by one step - but their first-level hit die costs double. For example, a 3rd-level wanderer could spend 3 build points to change their first- and second-level hit dice to d6s. Wanderers can't increase their hit dice above d12. The wanderer can change their hit die size retroactively; in this case, do not re-roll, just add 1 (or 2 at first level): if characters are rolling for hit dice, the wanderer can increase the hit die size of a newly-gained level before rolling.

(If you are playing a game with a houserule where all hit dice are maximised, or the wanderer has the paragon creature template, or for some other reason all the wanderer's hit dice are maximised, the first-level hit die does not cost double to increase. The wanderer is refunded build points retroactively if the cost of increasing the first-level hit die is decreased).
Skill Points: Wanderers can spend 1 build point to gain 1 skill point, with no limits beyond the standard limit on how many skill points they can possibly spend.
Base Attack Bonus: Wanderers can spend 10 build points to increase their base attack bonus by 1. However, they cannot increase the base attack bonus gained from wanderer levels to greater than their wanderer level.
Base Save Bonuses: For each saving throw, the wanderer can spend 5 build points to increase their base saving throw bonus for that save by 1. However, they cannot increase the base save bonus gained from wanderer levels to greater than half their wanderer level, plus 2 (this value is given on Table: The Wanderer by level). If their progression is increased above this value (for example, you increase your reflex save to +3 at level 2 by spending 15 build points. At level 3, your save increases by 1 automatically, putting it up to 4, when the maximum is 3) your save bonus is reduced back to the maximum - your build points are refunded, but can only be spent on something you could have spent them on at the level when you initially spent them.
Weapon, Armour and Shield Proficiency: The wanderer may pay 1 build point to become proficient in the club, the dagger and the quarterstaff, another build point to become proficient in the light crossbow, the heavy crossbow, the spear and the longspear, 1 more to be proficient in all simple weapons, 2 more to be proficient in the short sword, shortbow and rapier, 3 more to be proficient in all martial weapons, 2 more to be proficient in one exotic weapon and 5 more to be proficient in all weapons:

1 point: Club, dagger, quarterstaff.
2 points: Club, crossbow (light and heavy), dagger, quarterstaff, spear, longspear.
3 points: All simple.
5 points: All simple plus short sword, shortbow, rapier.
8 points: All simple and martial.
10 points: All simple and martial, one exotic.
15 points: All.

For armour, 2 points are required to be proficient in all light armour, another 3 for all medium, and another 5 for all heavy.

2 points: All light
5 points: All light and medium
10 points: All light, medium and heavy

For shields, 2 points are needed to be proficient in shields, and another 1 to be proficient in tower shields as well.

Spellcasting: Wanderers can learn to cast either arcane spells drawn from the arcane wanderer spell list or divine spells drawn from the divine wanderer spell list. In the former case, they must choose either to cast spells in a prepared manner similar, but not identical, to a wizard, or in a spontaneous manner just as a sorcerer does. Else, they either prepare spells much as a cleric does, or cast them spontaneously just as a favoured soul does. The wanderer may not acquire multiple types of spellcasting.

The arcane wanderer spell list is the sorcerer/wizard spell list, plus any spells from the bard list which aren't already on the sorcerer/wizard list. The divine wanderer spell list is the cleric spell list, plus any spells from the druid list which aren't already on the cleric list, plus any spells from the paladin list which aren't already on the cleric or druid list, plus any spells from the ranger list which aren't already on the druid list. For example, resist energy is level 2 for a wanderer, even though the ranger gets it at level 1. However, the divine wanderer list has alarm, which isn't a cleric, druid, or paladin spell, at level 1, as the ranger gets it.

Prepared Arcane: To learn, prepare, or cast a prepared arcane spell, the wanderer must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a wanderer's prepared arcane spell is 10 + the spell level + the wanderer’s Intelligence modifier. The wanderer buys slots for their daily spells with build points. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Intelligence score.

Unlike a spontaneous arcane wanderer, a prepared arcane wanderer may know any number of spells, though they too must be bought with build points. They must choose and prepare their spells ahead of time by getting a good night’s sleep and spending 1 hour meditating on the nature of magic. While meditating, the wanderer decides which spells to prepare.

When the wanderer buys the ability to cast a level of spells, they automatically learn two spells of that level, and gain zero spells per day of that level, modified by their Intelligence modifier. The exception is that when the wanderer learns to cast cantrips, they automatically learn all cantrips on the arcane wanderer spell list and gain one cantrip per day. Wanderers have no spellbook, so they prepare all spells from memory, just like wizards can prepare read magic from memory. On the other hand, this also means that they can't learn spells from scrolls or other casters' spellbooks: they can only learn spells by spending build points.

Spontaneous Arcane: To learn or cast a spontaneous arcane spell, the wanderer must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a wanderer's prepared arcane spell is 10 + the spell level + the wanderer’s Charisma modifier. The wanderer buys slots for their daily spells with build points. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Charisma score.

Unlike a prepared arcane wanderer, a spontaneous arcane wanderer cannot know any more spells than the number given on Table: Maximum Wanderer Spells Known. They must by their spells known with build points. They do not, however, need to prepare their spells ahead of time: they can cast any spell they know so long as they have not used up their daily spell allotment for spells of that level.

When the wanderer buys the ability to cast a level of spells, they automatically learn one spell of that level, and gain zero spells per day of that level, modified by their Charisma modifier. The exception is that when the wanderer learns to cast cantrips, they learn four cantrips and gain one cantrip per day.

Prepared Divine: To learn, prepare, or cast a prepared divine spell, the wanderer must have a Wisdom score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a wanderer's prepared divine spell is 10 + the spell level + the wanderer’s Wisdom modifier. The wanderer buys slots for their daily spells with build points. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Wisdom score.

Unlike a spontaneous divine wanderer, a prepared divine wanderer knows all spells on the divine wanderer spell list. Each wanderer must spend a time at which they must spend one hour meditating on the nature of magic in order to regain their spells. Time spent resting has no effect on whether or not a prepared divine wanderer can prepare spells. While meditating, the wanderer decides which spells to prepare.

When the wanderer buys the ability to cast a level of spells, they gain zero spells per day of that level, modified by their Wisdom modifier. The exception is that when the wanderer learns to cast cantrips, they gain one cantrip per day.

Spontaneous Divine: To learn or cast a spontaneous divine spell, the wanderer must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a wanderer's prepared divine spell is 10 + the spell level + the wanderer’s Charisma modifier. The wanderer buys slots for their daily spells with build points. In addition, they receive bonus spells per day if they have a high Charisma score.

Unlike a prepared divine wanderer, a spontaneous arcane wanderer cannot know any more spells than the number given on Table: Maximum Wanderer Spells Known. They must by their spells known with build points. They do not, however, need to prepare their spells ahead of time: they can cast any spell they know so long as they have not used up their daily spell allotment for spells of that level.

When the wanderer buys the ability to cast a level of spells, they automatically learn one spell of that level, and gain zero spells per day of that level, modified by their Charisma modifier. The exception is that when the wanderer learns to cast cantrips, they learn four cantrips and gain one cantrip per day.

The Humble Hero

I'm nobody special - just lucky, I guess.


Some heroes wield mighty weapons or cast powerful spells on their quests. Not so the Humble Hero - he succeeds through good old-fashioned hard work, the help of his friends, and more than a little luck.

Adventures: Although a Humble Hero might originally intend to return to his normal life, he often finds it difficult to stop adventuring once he starts. There's always another evil to be defeated, or another opportunity to exploit... and deep down, he actually enjoys the change of pace from his mundane life.

Characteristics: A Humble Hero can hold his own in combat, to a degree. However he works best at assembling specialised heroes and providing on-the-spot solutions when magic and brute force fail.

Alignment: Most Humble Heroes are good-aligned, but there are certainly a few who choose to operate out of (un)enlightened self-interest. They have no tendency towards law or chaos (and in fact are often neutral on the ethical axis).

Religion: Humble Heroes can be as devout or agnostic as any other non-divine class.

Background: A Humble Hero comes from equally humble beginnings, but rises to the challenges life throws at him - be they monsters preying on his home village, villains manipulating his nation, or even more dire threats.

Races: Humans are the most common Humble Heroes by far, followed by halflings and perhaps a few gnomes. Dwarves, elves, half-orcs, and other races instead follow their cultural traditions, generally preferring conventional classes.

Other Classes: Humble Heroes get along with members of all other classes. In fact, one of their key strengths is utilising the powers of their party members to their maximum effectiveness.

Role: A Humble Hero isn't the best warrior, and has little or no arcane talent. However, he can rally his allies for a common cause - and seems to attract new allies to fill roles that a party otherwise lacks.

Adaptation: A Humble Hero fits best into the common fantasy trope of a human leading a rag-tag bunch of demihumans of assorted classes. He can even be used in solo campaigns, by giving him full command of allies generated through the Fire-Forged Friend ability.

The Humble Hero
Humble Heroes have the following game statistics.

Abilities: A Humble Hero generally relies on mundane methods in combat, and so benefits from high physical ability scores (Constitution, Dexterity, and Strength). Otherwise, Charisma powers his class features but he has little use for high Intelligence and Wisdom scores (unless roleplaying as the party leader of course).

Alignment: Any.

Hit Die: d8

Starting Age: As barbarian.

Starting Gold: As monk.

Class Skills
All skills are class skills for a Humble Hero.

Skill Points at First Level: (4 + Int modifier) x 4
Skill Points at Each Additional Level: 4 + Int modifier

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Humble Hero.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies
A Humble Hero is proficient with all simple and martial weapons. He is proficient with light and medium armour and with shields (except tower shields).

Competence (Ex)
A Humble Hero can get almost any job done, with a little time and effort. He may use any skill untrained and may always take 10 on a skill check, even if rushed or threatened.

Improved Competence
At 7th level, a Humble Hero may always take 20 on a skill check, without requiring extra time or automatically incurring penalties for failure.

Destiny (Ex)
A Humble Hero is destined for greatness, no matter how unassuming he may first appear or might think himself to be. He treats a natural roll of 1 on a d20 as a natural roll of 10.

Destiny Fulfilled
At 11th level a Humble Hero has become legendary (http://www.d20srd.org/srd/spells/legendLore.htm). He treats a natural roll of 1 on a d20 as a natural roll of 20.

Fortune's Grace (Ex)
Where a Humble Hero's armour and friends fail, his luck protects him. At 2nd level he adds his Charisma bonus as a luck bonus to his saving throws and his Armour Class.

Determination (Ex)
A Humble Hero fights on, no matter the odds. At 3rd level, whenever he successfully saves against an attack with a partial effect on a successful save, he instead suffers no effects from the attack.

Improved Determination
At 10th level, whenever a Humble Hero fails a save against an attack with a partial effect on a successful save, he instead suffers the partial effect.

Teamwork Feat (Ex)
A Humble Hero makes his party into a whole greater than the sum of its parts. At 4th level he chooses a [Teamwork] feat (https://www.d20pfsrd.com/feats/teamwork-feats/) and grants it as a bonus feat to himself and all his party members, ignoring all prerequisites except for other [Teamwork] feats. He chooses an additional [Teamwork] feat at 8th level and every four levels thereafter. A character gains all such feats upon joining the Hero's party and loses them upon leaving. Cohorts, familiars, animal companions, and special mounts all gain these feats as well.

Inspiration (Ex)
A Humble Hero's heroism inspires his allies. At 5th level he adds his Charisma modifier as a morale bonus to the attack rolls, saving throws, and skill checks of all allies within 100 feet that can see, hear, or otherwise perceive him. He does not benefit from his own Inspiration.

Fire-Forged Friends (Ex)
A Humble Hero eventually becomes a trusted companion and leader, one way or the other. At 6th level each of his fellow party members gains a specific benefit enhancing one (and only one) of their classes, as given below. Each companion gains the benefit corresponding to the class in which they have the most levels (in case of a tie, the Humble Hero chooses the benefit to grant to that companion).

At the DM's option, if a particular benefit would not apply to any of the Humble Hero's companions (e.g. the Arcane Caster benefit for a party without a sorcerer or wizard), the hero instead gains a cohort of his choice of one of the corresponding classes. Cohorts are attracted exactly as described for the Leadership feat, save that the Humble Hero's Leadership score is always equal to his Humble Hero class level + one-half his level in other classes + his Charisma modifier. Cohorts gained in this way may not multiclass and do not gain the corresponding benefit (unless there is another Humble Hero in the party).

Other than potentially gaining cohorts, a Humble Hero does not benefit from his own Fire-Forged Friends ability or that of other Humble Heroes. If a companion ceases adventuring with the Humble Hero, they lose the benefit of this class feature (and the Hero gains a cohort if appropriate).

Sorcerer, Wizard
Practiced Spellcaster (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?557918-Practiced-X-Revised-(feats)&p=23044734#post23044734) (for the corresponding class) as a bonus feat, though the party member must meet the prerequisites. Unlike the standard feat, this benefit can increase the party member's ability to cast spells beyond their character level.


Divine Caster
Cleric, Druid
Practiced Spellcaster (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?557918-Practiced-X-Revised-(feats)&p=23044734#post23044734) (for the corresponding class) as a bonus feat, though the party member must meet the prerequisites. Unlike the standard feat, this benefit can increase the party member's ability to cast spells beyond their character level.


Trickster
Bard, Rogue
Lesser shadow magic (http://www.giantitp.com/forums/showthread.php?558107-Bestow-Curse-Love-Spell-Polymorph-Medusa-Raise-Undead-Army-Shadow-Magic-(spells)&p=23051108) 3x/day as a spell-like ability. This ability improves to shadow magic at the party member's 11th level, and to greater shadow magic at their 17th level. Caster level = party member's character level, save DC 10 + spell level + party member's Charisma modifier.


Warrior
Barbarian, Fighter, Monk, Paladin, Ranger
The party member may make a full attack as a standard action. Iterative attacks during a full attack are made at the party member's full base attack bonus.




Mythical (Ex)
The Humble Hero one day becomes the hero (or villain) of his own story, and reality reshapes to accommodate his adventures. At 17th level he gains the ability to duplicate the effects of miracle three times per day as an immediate action, save that the effects are the nonmagical results of random chance in the Humble Hero's favour (e.g. he should avoid requesting a fireball, but could instead ask for a sudden natural brushfire with similar effects; in place of a dominate person effect he could ask for a bonus on Diplomacy checks against the target; a finger of death might manifest as a natural heart attack, and so forth).

The Rescuer

Not all heroes rely on magical skill or mastery of the initiator's art to save lives. Rescuers are individuals dedicated to goal of saving lives however possible, even if doing so puts their own lives at risk. Willing to rush into almost any imaginable sort of danger (and many sorts that would be unimaginable to most) rescuers use a combination of martial skill and medical know-how to save anyone who might be in harm's way.

Adventures: Rescuers frequently take a mission-based approach to adventuring, gravitating to instances where people have found themselves in peril. Other rescuers attach themselves to a particular adventuring party, seeing their fellow adventures as those who are most likely going to be in need of being rescued.

Characteristics: Rescuers possess a wide variety of skills, which enable them to manage virtually whatever situation they find themselves having to deal with. In particular, rescuers have extensive training in mundane methods of healing, enabling them to pull those they're saving from the brink of death. Additionally, rescuers are capable combatants and are especially talented at finding ways of disabling their foes without actually killing them. Finally, rescuers have a unique talent when it comes to keeping track of their allies, meaning they always seem to know when they need to rush to save them.

Alignment: While virtually all rescuers follow a selfless creed of self-endangerment for the benefit of others, there is nothing stopping a wicked individual from learning their skills. As such, rescuers may be of any alignment.

Religion: Most rescuers are at least nominally religious, offering prayers to their deity of choice before taking on a particularly hazardous mission or otherwise putting themselves in danger. While deities of healing such as Pelor are certainly popular, quite a few rescuers will choose to venerate deities of luck, having seen chance decided people's fate far too many times.

Background: Rescuers are often trained in small academies where they can develop the multitude of skills they need to succeed in their missions. Such academies are usually connected to either a local guard troop or the national military, training rescuers to supplement their other forces. On rare occasions, however, an individual may learn these skills through focused individual effort and study. While such instances are rare, these self-taught rescuers can be among the most dedicated members of the class.

Races: The bulk of rescuers are humans and half-elves, whose flexibility lends itself well towards mastering the numerous skills a rescuer needs to succeed. Half-orcs make up a surprisingly substantial minority, craving the respect that rescuers are frequently afforded and finding themselves well adapted to the the physical demands of the profession.

Other Classes: Rescuers tend to get along well with most other classes, as almost any adventurer can see the value in having someone around who's dedicated to making sure they make it through the adventure alive. Paladins in particular respect the selfless nature of many rescuers, though some of the more severe members of the class can chafe at rescuers preference for non-lethal tactics. Rogues, meanwhile, are often more standoffish around rescuers due to their frequent association with town guards.

Role: Like rogues, rescuers are capable of acting as scouts thanks to their typically high awareness and trapfinding ability, though they lack the rogue's talent for stealth. In combat, rescuers rely on their training to quickly disable their opponents and render them unconscious or otherwise unable to fight back. Additionally, while rescuers lack the ability to provide magical healing their extensive mastery of mundane healing techniques can help save their allies from otherwise lethal situations.

GAME RULE INFORMATION
Rescuers have the following game statistics
Abilities: Wisdom is extremely useful to rescuers as it is the key ability for many of their skills and powers a number of their abilities. As rescuers often find themselves in melee combat, Strength and Constitution are also valuable. Finally, Dexterity can also be useful to rescuers as they are typically lightly armored.
Alignment: Rescuers can be of any alignment.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Rescuers are proficient with all simple and martial weapons. A rescuer is proficient with light armor, but not shields.

Subduing Strikes (Ex): Whenever possible rescuers prefer to avoid killing their opponents, opting instead to render them unconscious if at all possible. To this end, rescuers possess significant training in the art of inflicting non-lethal damage. A rescuer takes no penalty on their attacks when attempting to deal non-lethal damage with a weapon that would typically deal normal damage. Furthermore, whenever the rescuer makes an attack that would deal non-lethal damage their attack inflicts an additional 1d4 points of non-lethal damage. This extra damage increases to +2d4 at 4th level and every three levels past that (+3d4 at 7th, +4d4 at 10th, +5d4 at 13th, +6d4 at 16th and +7d4 at 19th).

Trapfinding (Ex): A rescuer can use the Search skill to locate traps with a DC higher than 20, and he can use Disable Device to bypass a trap or disarm magic traps.

Focused Skill (Ex): At 2nd level a rescuer may select any Strength or Dexterity-based skill that they possess at least 1 rank in. From that point on, the rescuer receives an insight bonus to all uses of that skill equal to their Wisdom modifier. At 5th level and every three levels thereafter (8th, 11th, 14th, 17th, and 20th) a rescuer may select an additional skill to which this bonus applies.

Medical Training (Ex): While rescuers lack access to true healing magic, they possess extensive skill with mundane medical techniques. Starting at 2nd level, a rescuer receives an insight bonus on all Heal checks equal to one-half their class level (rounded down). Furthermore, a rescuer may use the Heal skill without provoking Attacks of Opportunity.
At 6th level, a rescuer gains the ability to grant their allies a second wind to carry them through a fight (or at least get them sufficiently mobile to get out of danger). As a standard action, a rescuer can grant a living creature a number of temporary hp equal to double the rescuer's class level with a DC 25 Heal check. These temporary hp last for 1 hour before fading, and once the rescuer makes their check they may not make another such heal check for that creature for that day.
Starting at 10th level, a rescuer's develops the ability to treat common injuries much more rapidly. A rescuer gains the ability to perform any use of the Heal skill that would typically take a standard action (such as first aid) as a move action instead. Additionally, by taking a -20 penalty on the check a rescuer may attempt to perform any of these uses of the Heal skill as a swift action.
At 14th level, a rescuer develops the ability to treat additional conditions with the Heal skill. These new uses each take a standard action (this time is not reduced by the normal time reduction ability gained at 6th level).
As a DC 20 Heal check, the rescuer may remove dazed, fatigued, or sickened condition from an individual.
As a DC 25 Heal check, the rescuer may remove the exhausted, nauseated, or stunned condition from an individual.
As a DC 35 Heal check, the rescuer may remove a negative level, the blinded or the deafened condition from an individual.
A rescuer may only attempt to remove one condition with a given Heal check.
At 18th level, a rescuer's mastery of medical techniques reaches its zenith, enabling them to bring someone back from the brink of death. As a full round action, the rescuer may attempt to revive a creature that has just died and is relatively whole with a special Heal check. The DC for this check is 40 for a creature that has been dead for 1 round, and the DC increase by 5 for each additional round the creature has been dead. If the check succeeds, the target is brought back to -1 hp and is considered stable, with no loss of level.

AC Bonus (Ex): Starting at 3rd level a rescuer receives a bonus to their AC equal to their Wisdom modifier (if positive) as long as they are unencumbered and wearing no more than light armor. This bonus to AC applies even against touch attacks or when the rescuer is flatfooted, however the rescuer loses this bonus if they are immobilized or helpless, wears medium or heavy armor or carries a medium or heavy load.

Status (Su): Rescuers often find themselves needing to work with teams in order to succeed in their missions and as such have developed the ability to keep track of their allies even if separated. Starting at 3rd level, a rescuer may designate a number of willing individuals equal to the rescuer's Wisdom modifier that the rescuer can track. As long as a designated individual remains within a distance of 100 ft. per class level of the rescuer the rescuer instinctively knows the general location and approximate health of that individual. If the rescuer has direct line of effect to a designated individual then they can determine that individual's precise location, otherwise the rescuer can only determine the approximate direction and distance of the individual. Additionally, the rescuer knows if a targeted individual is healthy (at full hp), injured (below full hp but above half hp), badly injured (below half hp but above 0 hp), dying (0 to -9 hp), or dead.
A rescuer may designate a willing individual within 10 ft to be a target of their status ability as a full-round action. Once this designation is made, the individual remains targeted by this ability until the rescuer rescinds the designation, which they may do as a free action. If the rescuer's Wisdom modifier is somehow reduced below the current number of creatures they have targeted by this ability the rescuer must select which individuals will no longer be targeted by this ability.
Beginning at 9th level, the rescuer automatically knows any conditions that affect an individual targeted by their status ability and is aware of any active spell effects on the targeted individual. This knowledge only extends to the type of condition or name of the spell in question and does not provide any information regarding the source of the spell or effect.
At level 15, the rescuer is able to strengthen the mental bond created by their status ability to enable mental communication. Any individual effected by a given rescuer's status ability gains the ability to telepathically communicate with the rescuer or any individual the rescuer has targeted with their ability as long as all individuals are within range of the rescuer's status ability.

Stunning Strike (Ex): At 5th level, a rescuer furthers their ability to disrupt their opponents in combat by striking at key pressure points. As a standard action, the rescuer may make a melee attack that deals no damage. If the attack hits, the target must succeed on a Fortitude save (DC = 10 + 1/2 the rescuer's class level (rounded up) + the rescuer's Wisdom modifier) or be stunned for 1 round. The rescuer may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + their Wisdom modifier.

Improved Stunning Strike (Ex): Beginning at 11th level, whenever an opponent fails their save against the rescuer's stunning strike ability they are stunned for 1d4 rounds.
Furthermore, a rescuer of 11th level or higher may use their stunning strike ability to stun creatures that normally would be immune to stunning. Such creatures receive a +4 bonus on their Fortitude saves to avoid being stunned and are stunned for 1 round on a failed save instead of 1d4.

Rush to the Rescue (Ex): Starting at 12th level, a rescuer develops the ability to react at incredible speeds when their allies need them the most. Whenever an ally within 30 feet of the rescuer drops below 0 hp or is otherwise rendered helpless, the rescuer may take an immediate move action.

Greater Stunning Strike (Ex): A normal creature who fails their save against the stunning strike ability of a rescuer of 15th level or higher is now stunned for 2d4 rounds, and is stunned for 1 round even on a successful save.
Furthermore, creatures that are normally immune to stunning no longer receive a bonus to their Fortitude saves to avoid being stunned and are now stunned for 1d4 rounds on a failed save.

Adrenaline Rush (Ex): At level 20, a rescuer masters the ability to harness the adrenal rush that accompanies danger to act with preternatural quickness for a brief period. During the first round of any combat encounter the rescuer may choose to activate this ability as a swift action. If the rescuer chooses to do so, all of their movement speeds are doubled and they gain the ability to take an extra standard action each round on their turn. These benefits last for a number of rounds equal to the rescuer's Wisdom modifier. In order to use this ability the rescuer must choose to activate it during the first round they are able to act during a given encounter.
The rescuer can use this ability three times per day.

Rescuer Variant: The Tracker
The tracker is specialist in locating and chasing down individuals no matter where they may be hiding, trading knowledge of how to deal with traps and certain combat techniques for an unparalleled ability to find anyone anywhere.
Class Skills:
Add Knowledge (nature) and Survival to the tracker's class skills. Remove Disable Device and Open Lock from their class skill list.
Class Features:
The tracker has all the class features as a rescuer except as noted below.
Gain:
Track: The tracker gains Track as a bonus feat at 1st level.
Quarry (Su): At 5th level, the tracker gains the ability to designate a single creature as their quarry as a full round action. To designate a creature as their quarry, a target must either be within 30 ft. of the tracker or the tracker must know the target's name and have a relatively accurate description of the target's appearance. Once designated, the target will remain the tracker's quarry until they are killed or the tracker rescinds the designation, which they can do as a free action. A tracker can only have one creature designated as their quarry at a time. As long as the tracker and their quarry remain on the same plane, the tracker has at least a vague idea of where their quarry is. If the tracker has direct line of sight to their quarry then they automatically can identify their target, regardless of any disguises or illusions hiding the quarry's identity. If the tracker is within at least 100 ft. per class level of their quarry, they can determine the rough direction and distance they are from their target. If the target is beyond that distance, the tracker can only determine the rough direction their quarry is in (North, West, South, etc.).
At 11th level, the tracker gains the ability to track their quarry even across planar boundaries. If a tracker's quarry is on a different plane, the tracker can automatically identify which plane they are on and can detect any portals to that plane within 100 ft. per class level.
Starting at 15th level, the tracker's quarry ability gains the power to bypass most methods of magically blocking magical detection short of mind blank, wish, or miracle, and even these powerful spells offer no guarantees. If a tracker's quarry has one of these spells cast on them or has the spell as a continuous effect (such as from an item), then the tracker must make a Wisdom check with a DC equal to the caster level of the spell. If the tracker fails, then their ability to track their quarry is suppressed for 24 hours, or until the effect blocking it is removed. If the tracker succeeds, however, then their quarry ability functions normally for 24 hours, at which point they must succeed at another Wisdom check of the effect is still active.
Lose:
Trapfinding: The tracker does not receive the trapfinding ability at 1st level.
Stunning Strike: The tracker does not receive the stunning strike ability at 5th level.
Improved Stunning Strike: The tracker does not receive the improved stunning strike ability at 11th level.
Greater Stunning Strike: The tracker does not receive the greater stunning strike ability at 15th level.

Rescuer Variant: The Undercover Agent
The undercover agent is a specialist in deception, trading the rescuer's medical knowledge for the ability to take on false identities able to withstand nearly any level of scrutiny.
Class Skills:
Add Bluff, Disguise and Intimidate to the undercover agent's skill list. Remove Heal from the skill list.
Class Features:
The undercover agent has all the class features as a rescuer except as noted below.
Gain:
Cover Identity (Ex): At 2nd level, the undercover agent develops a specific false identity. The undercover agent receives a circumstance bonus to Disguise checks to disguise themselves as their cover identity equal to one-half their class level (rounded up) and may add their Wisdom modifier to Bluff checks made to remain in-character. Furthermore, even efforts to magically read the undercover agent's identity can be fooled by this disguise; an individual targeting the undercover agent with a spell such as detect evil or detect thoughts must succeed at a caster level check opposed by the undercover agent's Bluff check or receive information consistent with the cover identity. An undercover agent may retire a given cover identity and create a new one, however this process takes a week of uninterrupted practice.
At levels 6, 10, 14, and 18, the undercover agent may develop an additional cover identity.
Lose:
Medical Training: The undercover agent does not receive the Medical Training ability at 2nd level, nor the additional benefits at 6th, 10th, 14th and 18th level.

Wanderer Class Features

The following class features are also available to the Wanderer. They are indexed for searching: you can search for a class feature that appears for a particular class at a particular level by using the # symbol, the standard abbreviation for the class, and the level in question. A dash (-) after level 1 or 2 is used to prevent level 10-19 or 20 from appearing in the search. For example, #Rog1- will allow you to find the Sneak Attack and Trapfinding class features. #Rog will find all rogue features, and #Rog1 will find all rogue features which appear on level 1 or 10-19, in case that's helpful for some reason. Epic levels aren't indexed for searching because there are infinitely many of them.

The section below doesn't list what the class features actually do - either for legal reasons, or because the abilities are written in the SRD (http://www.d20srd.org/index) and you can look them up there in the unlikely case that you aren't already familiar with them.

Importantly, a wanderer cannot have any parameter of an ability that is stronger than if they actually took levels in the class that grants the most of that ability at that level. For example, a wanderer cannot have a sneak attack feature that is better than 1d6 at first level, 2d6 at 3rd level, and so forth, nor can they learn to use their bardic music to inspire greatness before a bard could. If the ability is from a prestige class, it may have "Delayed progression X", where X is a numerical value, meaning that you must subtract X from your wanderer level when determining whether or not you can take the class feature and also when determining your effective level in the class which has that feature if it scales with level. For example, Enhance Arrow has Delayed Progression 6, meaning that you must be 7th level to take it at all, and must be 9th level to increase the bonus to +2.

Further, you cannot take any ability that is available only to a class's epic progression unless your wanderer level is as high as your character level would need to be in order to take that ability by progressing in the prestige class.. For example, while Delayed Progression 6 implies that you can take Enhance Arrow +6 at 17th wanderer level (as it is an 11th-level arcane archer ability), you actually must be level 21. In effect, epic class features actually have a delayed progression equal to 20, minus the number of levels long the class is.

Finally, if you take an ability that allows you to choose from a list of abilities but some of those abilities have prerequisites (the most salient example being bonus feats), you can only take options as though you'd taken no more than one of the options on each level you're entitled to take one - for example, a 22nd-level epic wanderer can't suddenly take the 12 bonus feats they're entitled to and then use them to take nothing but epic feats, because they couldn't have done that if they'd actually taken the bonus feats on the levels they became available. They could, however, take just one epic bonus feat - the 22nd-level bonus feat - without having to take all the rest of the bonus feats first. Effectively, this is just another way of saying that you can't use, for example, your first-level bonus feat to take epic feats by taking things in all the wrong orders.

Any class feature that isn't listed here hasn't been priced for one of many possible reasons: it might be that it's difficult to put a price on, that a player is only likely to take it if they're planning to abuse it, or simply because there are far, far too many class features in the game for all of them to be priced. Just because they're not listed here doesn't mean you can't take one; ask your DM what they think is a fair price.

*No class features from this class are available to the wandererThese costs may seem weird in places, but I'm assuming that you're only going to take an ability if you actually care about it. I don't think that, for example, turn undead is quite on par with the ability to cast four first-level divine spells spontaneously out of four that you know, except that if you're taking turn undead, it's probably because you're either taking divine metamagic or planning on turning lots of undead, whereas for most clerics, it usually just sits there unused for most of the game. Similarly, I don't think that many people would take the knight's impetuous endurance rather than scribing a new fifth-level spell, but they might if they consistently found themselves able to pass saves on a 2. Essentially, just because turn undead is priced at 30 doesn't mean that it's almost as useful for most clerics as their spellcasting, just that if you're making a conscious decision to buy it, it's because it's worth almost as much as your spellcasting.

In fact, some of the abilities are priced knowing that you'll only buy them if you're actually getting a discount, such as divine grace - it's pointless to spend 30 points on it when you could spend 30 points increasing your saves the same amount or more directly, so only people with 16 or more charisma (or who have all high saves already) are likely to take it. This is fine - supernatural abilities can be turned off, after all. It does mean that the wanderer makes a better sorcerer-paladin multiclass than an actual sorcerer-paladin multiclass, but most multiclass builds are subpar anyway, and the "Sorcadin" is far from an exception in this regard.

Wanderers, Multiclassing, Epic and Gestalt

A wanderer is meant as an alternative to multiclassing. Therefore, a wanderer may not be a multiclass character - no character may take a level in wanderer if they have any levels in another class, nor may a wanderer take any levels in another class. This includes racial paragon classes and prestige classes, but not racial hit dice. If you have racial spellcasting, consider it completely independently of your wanderer spellcasting; ignore any part of a rule that says they stack.

Epic levels are partially covered in the class feature section above. However, there are a few things further to note. While epic wanderer levels do not provide any base attack or base save bonuses (they provide epic attack and save bonuses as normal instead), you can continue to increase your base attack and save bonuses up to +20 and +12 respectively by spending build points. Similarly, you can continue to increase your spellcasting potential even though that would not normally happen automatically at epic levels. The epic spellcasting and improved spellcasting capacity feats work as they say they do, even if the latter would bring you over the number of spell slots the wanderer can ordinarily have.

In order to find the number of build points you have at a certain level, you can use these formulae, rounding up each time, where L is your level:

High power level: 61+35L+L2+L2.5
Medium power level: 54+25L+L2.25
Low power level: 60+15L+1.75

Finally, wanderers present a unique problem in gestalt builds. Ordinarily, there is some redundancy and overlap between the two classes in the gestalt build, which weakens them. However, a wanderer in a gestalt build would simply be able to be strong where the other class is weak, and weak where the other class is strong. Instead of this, a gestalt wanderer multiplies their build points per level by one and a half, but does not use the standard gestalt rules. If playing a variant with more than two classes at each level, a wanderer uses half the listed build points for each class they would usually take, plus half the listed build points (twice the value for three classes, two and a half times the value for four, triple the value for five, and so forth).


Sample Wanderer Build: Unblessed

The Unblessed are a ragtag group of warriors who, angry that others have access to magical powers simply through divine favour or luck of ancestry, take it upon themselves to destroy these spellcasters whenever they can get away with it, or at least to cripple magocracies. They do this by wielding the spellcasters' powers against them. However, they are exceptionally fragile in physical combat; they use their agility and reflexes to avoid it. Unblessed also have a limited number of skill points, though a lot of places to spend them.

Knower of Things

Put an optional image of your class here (getting permission from the artist beforehand unless they explicitly allow free use)

I drink and I know things
--Tyrion Lannister, Knower of Things

The first thing a Knower of Things knows is that knowledge is power. Whether it’s practical how-to skills, strategy, tactics, obscure lore, friends with a particular set of skills, or dirty secrets, a Knower of Things knows how to get things done, or at least who to ask, what dirt they have on them, and when to call in favors.

Adventures: Knowers of Things generally don’t adventure. They prefer to use the best, most efficient strategy to further their goals, and that often means having someone else do the leg work. Still, sometimes they are the best expert they know.

Characteristics: Knowers of Things are master manipulators and sages. Almost any ability that’s based on having the correct knowledge is in their grasp.

Alignment: Knowers of Things can be of any alignment, but most know that neutrality fosters the best attitude for gaining knowledge and employing the best strategies. Good is stupid when it hamstrings you; Evil is stupid when it gets you too much attention. Law and Chaos likewise have little to offer if taken to extremes.

Religion: Pragmatism is the defining characteristic of most Knowers of Things, and survival is often their goal. They worship with this attitude in mind, and rare is the Knower of Things who is more pious than is practical. Outward displays of religious devotion are often more useful than real ones, and it is rarely beneficial to have your real beliefs known.

Background: Knowers of Things start off as sycophants most often, jockeying for real power with their wits, until their network of spies, contacts, secrets, and knowledge make them indispensable. They often start down this road out of necessity, and are shaped by survival. Knowers of Things rarely train apprentices in their art.

Races: Presumably, Knowers of Things could come from any race, but so far, all known Knowers of Things have been halflings.

Other Classes: Knowers of Things shine when working with others. In fact, they are so good at working with others that sometimes there’s no work left over for the Knower of Things to do.

Role: Knowers of Things make good sages and party faces, and work best in support of others. They are also often the most likely to have some obscure skill or item that comes in handy.

Adaptation: The Knower of Things fits in most settings, but especially those with political intrigue, and they have little utility when facing mindless enemies who can’t be bargained with or distracted in some way. In a setting or campaign with almost no non-combat challenges, the Knower of Things might not fit- at least, as a PC.

GAME RULE INFORMATION
Knower of Things's have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Intelligence is by far the most important ability for a Knower of things, with very little utility coming from their physical stats, and only limited benefit from high Wisdom or Charisma.
Alignment: Any
Hit Die: d6
Starting Age: As Wizard
Starting Gold: 5d6 x 10 gp.

The Knower of Things's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Appraise (Int), Autohypnosis (Wis), Bluff (Cha), Craft (Int), Decipher Script (Int), Diplomacy (Cha), Disable Device (Int), Disguise (Cha), Forgery (Int), Gather Information (Cha), Handle Animal (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (All) (Int), Listen (Wis), Open Lock (Dex), Perform (Cha), Profession (Wis), Psicraft (Int), Search (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Spellcraft (Int), Spot (Wis), Survival (Wis), Use Magic Device (Cha), Use Psionic Device (Cha), and Use Rope (Dex).

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the Knower of Things.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Knowers of Things are proficient in all martial and simple weapons, and take only half the normal non-proficiency penalty for using weapons they aren’t proficient in, including improvised weapons. They are proficient with light and medium armor, and shields except for tower shields.

Knowing Things: Knowers of Things buy Knowledge skill ranks at a rate of two ranks per skill point. They are still limited to their level plus three for their maximum rank. If a Knower of Things has half of a skill point left over, it does not provide any benefit but can be applied to a Knowledge skill when they next level up.

Drinking: All that knowledge is a heavy burden, and the Knower of Things often self-medicates the toll of that burden with alcohol. A Knower of Things processes alcohol differently than normal people. Every shot of hard liquor, glass of wine, or pint of beer or ale causes one point of Intelligence damage, but it does not change the Knower of Things’ Intelligence modifier or affect any skill check or the ability to cast spells if they know them. However, they still go unconscious if their Intelligence score is reduced to zero. Each drink gives the Knower of Things one Alcohol Charge, which are used to fuel certain class abilities. Using an Alcohol Charge does not remove any Intelligence damage caused by drinking, but each hour they lose one Alcohol Charge, and heal one point of Intelligence damage (but only Intelligence damage caused by this class ability). Any other effect that heals Intelligence damage, drain, or burn also removes an equal amount of Alcohol Charges. Resting does not change the rate of loss of Alcohol Charges or Intelligence damage, but a normal night’s sleep of eight hours would still remove eight damage and eight charges. They may only store Alcohol Charges equal to their levels in Knower of Things.

Special Ability: At 1st level and wherever it says "Special Ability" on the class table, the Knower of Things chooses a special ability from the list below. Special abilities may only be taken once, some could be taken before they are usable, and some have prerequisites. Alternatively, the Knower of Thongs can choose a feat he qualifies for.Drunken Skill: The Knower of Things can add 1d8 to any one skill check by expending an Alcohol Charge.

Know-how: The Knower of Things adds his Intelligence bonus to all skill checks with cross-class skills if he has ranks in that skill

Knack: Knowers of Things buy ranks in cross-class skills at the normal rate for class skills of one skill point per rank instead of half a rank. They still are limited to having half their class skills’ maximum ranks as the maximum rank for cross-class skills.

I Know a Guy: The Knower of Things may make a Knowledge (Local) check and expend at least one alcohol charge to call on an old friend or acquaintance to aid him in some way. The contact is assumed to be hiding until the Knower of Things signals his need, so the Knowledge (Local) check is used as a Hide and Move Silently check opposed by any hostile or unfriendly creatures in the vicinity. If the Knowledge (Local) check succeeds, the contact either attacks a target of the Knower of Things’ choice, or appears beside him. The alcohol charges are expended either way, but the Knower of Things cannot attempt a new Knowledge (Local) check with any of the same hostile or unfriendly creatures present until 24 hours have passed. The level of the contact is equal to the number of alcohol charges spent and he stays for as many rounds as the result of the Knowledge (Local) check. He will be single class Rogue, Bard, Ranger, or Monk, and his equipment can be of masterwork quality but no magic items, and is subtracted from the Knower of Things’ wealth. The contact can have their build pre-made or on the spot, but will always have maximum ranks in Hide and Move Silently. However, that contact becomes permanent unless killed; the Knower of Things can have only one contact per level. A contact receives a portion of the experience points of any combat they participate in and changes the effective level of the party as any other character would. Contacts can also be leveled up by spending more alcohol charges than was previously used to call on them, but their level does not lower, so if a contact of 4th level is called on with eight charges, he becomes a level eight contact and cannot be called with less than eight alcohol charges thereafter.

Social Genius: The Knower of Things uses his Intelligence modifier in place of his Charisma modifier for all Charisma-related skill checks.

Facilitator: The Knower of Things grants a bonus equal to his Intelligence bonus when using the Aid Another action, if it is higher than the normal bonus.

Distilled Spirit Guide: The Knower of Things singles out one of the Avatars of Bestial Wisdom as his personal spirit guide. The restriction to being below 10 intelligence is lifted when calling on that Avatar.

Blatant Cheating: The Knower of Things selects a feat. He gains the benefits of that feat and does not need to meet prerequisites based on class, base attack bonus, creature type, or ability scores. He does not count as having that feat for the purposes of prerequisites, and he cannot pick an epic feat unless his level is 21 or higher.

Drunken Gibberish: The Knower of Things doesn’t know how to cast spells, but he knows how to disrupt them. He can counter a spell by speaking gibberish similar to the vocal component and spending alcohol charges equal to the level of the spell. Spells with no vocal component can still be countered, but they count as two levels higher. The Knower of Things must still identify the spell with the spellcraft skill and ready an action to counterspell.

I Know Just the Thing: The Knower of Things can “spend” money to be prepared with the right item whenever he needs it. Money spent this way disappears permanently but is kept track of as credit. Thereafter, the Knower of Things can retrieve any item he could plausibly fit on his person by spending five alcohol points and drawing it forth. The item’s value is subtracted from the credit at a 5x multiplier for mundane items (including masterwork), and a 10x multiplier for magical or wondrous items. Unique items such as artifacts cannot be recreated with this ability. Spending money for credit takes an hour long ritual, but using the credit is a free action.

Armchair General:
prerequisite:Facilitator
By spending an alcohol charge, the Knower of Things can shout out tactical advice to use the Aid Another action in combat by making a Knowledge check instead of an attack. The Knowledge skill needed corresponds to the target’s creature type according to the Knowledge Devotion ability (humanoids may count as Knowledge (Local) or Knowledge (Royalty and Nobility) or neither if they don’t fit those categories). The DC is 10 + the HD of the target. He does not need to threaten the target and can spend an additional alcohol charge to grant double his Intelligence bonus. The ally being aided must be able to hear and understand the tactical advice to benefit from it.

I Know I Have Another One Around Here Somewhere:
prerequisite: I Know Just the Thing
The Knower of Things can use credit from I Know Just the Thing to make a copy of any item he has on his person. This costs the normal price of the item, but the copy disappears after a number of rounds equal to the Alcohol Charges he chooses to expend. This ability can function with unique items, as long as an accurate price for them exists.

Always Slightly Buzzed:
prerequisite: Adamantine Liver
After taking this ability, the Knower of Things permanently has one damage to his Intelligence score, but just like the damage from the Drinking class ability, it does not change his modifier or interfere with his ability to cast spells. The price of abilities that function with Alcohol Charges is reduced by 1/3; so every two charges he spends fuels his abilities as if he had spent three. His abilities cannot use charges over his level in a single use, however; fueling an ability with 18 charges would cost 12, but he would still need to be level 18 or higher.
Calling on the Avatars of Bestial Wisdom: At third level, the Knower of Things learns his greatest secret: how to call on these great spirit guides, who aid his decision making. If his current Intelligence score is below ten, he may spend an Alcohol Charge to call for the guidance of one of the Avatars of Bestial Wisdom.
The Unmated Amphibian This avatar is a creature most foul, but his delving into the depths of repulsive habits gains him insight into the foulness of others. As a free action, you may spend up to your maximum amount of alcohol charges to make an Intimidate check against any creature that can hear and understand you as the Unmated Amphibian tells you that creature's filthiest secret and you reveal that knowledge to them. Your Intimidate check gains +2 per alcohol charge spent, and if you succeed by 10 or more, the creature is treated as if they failed a save versus a suggestion spell.

The Wolf of Madness This avatar's wisdom often seems like the worst advice, but the Wolf of Madness resides on the edge of reality, and can alter it to fit his views. His view is that the solution to all problems is to tear something to shreds, however. So while his advice to the relatively frail Knower of Things is to engage all nearby foes in hand to hand combat, he confers on his pupil the ability to possibly succeed at it. The Knower of Things flies into a rage identical to a Barbarian's rage, except his base attack bonus also increases to match his levels in Knower of Things plus any base attack bonus from other class levels. His bonus is +4 to strength and constitution, and the duration is 3 + his improved constitution modifier if he spends one alcohol charge, and he gains another +1 to Strength and Constitution and another round of duration for every four additional alcohol charges he spends.

The Wolf of Bravery This avatar has only one secret to tell: there is never a moment where hope is completely gone. The Wolf of Bravery tells the Knower of Things what to say to rally his allies. As a standard action, the Knower of Things spends an alcohol charge and gives a rousing speech, granting a +2 morale bonus to attack and damage to all allies who can see and understand him. He can spend additional alcohol charges to grant an additional +1
per 4 charges expended. The duration is a number of rounds equal to the Knower of Things' intelligence bonus plus the charges expended.

The Feline of Enterprise This avatar knows the secret to success: investing. In an hour long ritual, the Knower of Things spends alcohol charges and sacrifices gold or valuable goods to the Feline of Enterprise, who then invests the wealth and returns with the dividends. The rate of return is a percentage of the investment equal to 100 + (2d10 + charges spent - 15), which can mean that the return is less than the investment.

The Hound of Guidance The oldest and most diverse in knowledge of the avatars, the Hound of Guidance is asked a question and gives an answer, as the augury spell, with a caster level equal to the alcohol charges spent.
Iron Liver: At fifth level, the Knower of Things does not take Intelligence damage from using his Drinking ability if he has no Alcohol Charges stored.

Adamantine Liver: At tenth level, the Knower of Things’ Iron Liver ability is replaced with this ability. The Knower of Things no longer takes intelligence damage if he has two or fewer alcohol charges stored.

Beloved of the Avatars: at fifteenth level, once per day, the Knower of Things may call on an Avatar of Bestial Wisdom without consuming Alcohol Charges. It is enhanced as if he had spent all available Alcohol Charges on it.
