how about lessening the penalty to hide for shooting, then hiding? this class seems like it woud hide on top of a biulding or the top of a watchtower and wait for the perfect moment to strike. I can imagine the class having access to some ranger spells like air tunnel (spell compendium) and guided shot.
Hmm well i Like the idea of Adding the bonus to hide after shooting. But i dont like the idea of spells. I see this class more of a specialist who has perfected thier killing style with training not spells. They pull of feats that would seam imposible by training to the peak of thier ability.
I think ill add the hidding bonus into the ghillie suit (as i have to add a cluase into it i forgot )
