    Default Waymaker RPG [D&D 3.5 Fix, PEACH]

    Here's a new, heavily edited and revised version of my own take on fixing D&D 3.5 (original can be found here) which I reposted now because I'll be running a session with it in a few weeks. I've called it "Waymaker RPG," in keeping with the pattern of previous well-known D&D 3.5 fixes (Pathfinder and Trailblazer).

    Miscellaneous Changes:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Characters may not have a total amount of class levels beyond 8. After attaining level 8, characters gain a bonus feat for every additional 1,000 XP they gain (idea comes from the E6/E8 system, here, except at a faster rate of advancement).
    There are no XP penalties for multiclassing.
    You add your Constitution score to your hit points at first level, instead of just your Constitution modifier.
    All fractions automatically round up, instead of rounding down like they did in 3.5.
    Use Realms of Chaos's rules for Combat Techniques, found here, except that the Advancement ability is gained at 4th and 8th level, and only humanoid creatures (not humanoid in type, but humanoid in basic shape, as determined by the DM) can use Combat Techniques, unless that creature has levels in a character (PC or NPC) class (if the creature is nonhumanoid, racial levels and class levels do not stack for determining the amount and advancement of combat techniques a character has).
    A character's base amount of attacks of opportunity is equal to half their base attack bonus.
    Characters add their Dexterity modifier to damage with bows.
    Use the Pathfinder Combat Maneuver system, except you may add either your Str or Dex modifier to your CMD and your CMB, but not both. Do not use the PF versions of the Improved Trip, Sunder, etc. feats.
    Power Attack can be used with bows. Treat bows as one handed weapons for the purposes of Power Attack.
    There is no attack penalty for firing ranged weapons into melee.
    Action Points: You have a certain amount of action points that you can use per level (1/2 your character level +5). You can augment any die roll you make by 1d6 per action point spent to enhance that die roll (with the exception of stabilization checks to avoid losing hit points when knocked into negatives - those cannot be enhanced with action points). You can enhance your AC or CMD (against one attack only), or the DC of one spell you cast, in the same way. You may decide to augment die rolls, AC, spell DCs, or CMD after you learn the result of your die roll/the attack/save made against you, but, in the case of AC, not after your opponent rolls damage. Additionally, you can spend one action point to gain an additional swift or immediate action, two action points to gain an additional move action, three action points to gain an additional standard action, or four action points to gain an additional full-round action. You recharge your action points per level (and maybe even gain a new one) when you level up (after you stop leveling, action points recharge every 10 feats you gain).
    Only Player Characters (and possibly a few NPCs chosen by the DM) gain access to action points.
    Shield bonuses to AC apply to Touch, not Flat Footed, AC.
    Spells do not have material components, unless their original 3.5 components cost 100 gp or more.
    Negative levels impose a -1 penalty to all d20 rolls, hit points, AC, and CMD, instead of their 3.5 effect.
    All characters that gain the Evasion class feature, and already have Evasion from another source, instead gain Improved Evasion.
    A character who is denied their Dexterity bonus to AC is always flat-footed, and vice versa.
    All characters are now proficient with their unarmed strikes.


    Races:
    Spoiler
    Show
    All races are now familiar (as the weapon familiarity racial trait) with any weapon with their race's name in it.
    Dwarves are small with Powerful Build (see the half-giant racial trait, here). However, they do not gain the bonus to Stealth checks for being small-sized. Dwarves gain a +2 racial bonus to Mechanics checks. Dwarves may choose to replace their penalty to Charisma with a -2 penalty to Dexterity (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made).
    Elves may choose to replace their bonus to Dexterity with a +2 bonus to Intelligence, and/or may choose to replace their penalty to Constitution with a -2 penalty to Strength (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). Elves may cast either the Catís Grace spell or the Foxís Cunning spell, on themselves only, once per day.
    Gnomes may choose not to gain spell like abilities. Instead, they may choose to gain +2 to Deception and Social checks (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). Gnomes gain a +2 racial bonus to Mechanics checks. Gnomes may choose to gain +2 Charisma instead of +2 Constitution, and/or -2 Wisdom instead of -2 Strength (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made).
    Half-Elves gain +2 to an ability score of choice (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). Half-Elves gain a +2 bonus to Perception checks instead of +1.
    Halflings gain +2 to a Perform skill of their choice (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). All action point dice that would normally be rolled as d6ís are instead rolled as d8ís for a Halfing.
    Half-Orcs take either a -2 penalty to Int or a -2 penalty to Cha, not both (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). Half-Orcs gain a +2 racial bonus on Acrobatics and Athletics checks. Additionally, Half-Orcs may rage (as the Barbarian ability) once per day or +1 time per day if they have levels in Barbarian. Orcs also gain the rage ability.
    Humans do not gain a bonus feat at level one. Instead, they gain +2 to an ability score of choice (this choice must be made at first level, and may not be changed once it is made). All action point dice that would normally be rolled as d6ís are instead rolled as d8ís for a Human.


    Classes:
    Spoiler
    Show
    All base class alignment prerequisites are removed, with the exception of the Paladin's alignment restriction (Paladins must still be Lawful Good, Chaotic Good, Lawful Evil, or Chaotic Evil - see the Paladin variants found here).
    New Core Classes:
    Spoiler

    Rationale Behind Class Additions:
    Spoiler
    Show
    When designing Waymaker, I looked at the 11 current base classes and started to sort them into four categories - arcane spellcaster, divine spellcaster, warrior, and expert. I noticed that there were two major classes for each character archetype. The Sorcerer and Wizard were arcane spellcasters, the Cleric and Druid were divine spellcasters, the Barbarian and Fighter were warriors, and the (modified) Monk and Rogue were experts. The remaining classes were all fusions of the four categories. The Bard was an arcane-expert, the Paladin was a divine-warrior, and the Ranger was an expert-warrior. There were, however, gaps in this pattern. An arcane-divine, arcane-warrior, and divine-expert were missing. I therefore decided that Waymaker required three new "core" classes - the Spellblade, the Inquisitor, and the Prophet.

    The Inquisitor
    Spoiler
    Show
    Abilities: Charisma, the primary casting statistic of the Inquisitor, is vital to the Inquisitorís ability to cast divine spells. Intelligence helps Inquisitors disable traps and gives them extra skill points. Dexterity and Constitution are important for defense, since Inquisitors have a fairly low hit die and lack proficiency with medium and heavy armor.
    Starting Age: As Fighter.
    Starting Gold: As Cleric.

    Class Skills
    The Inquisitor's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Acrobatics (Dex), Athletics (Str), Bluff (Cha), Fraud (Cha), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Linguistics (Int), Mechanics (Int), Perception (Wis), Profession (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Sleight of Hand (Dex), Social (Cha), Stealth (Dex), and Use Rope (Dex).

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Inquisitor.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The Inquisitor is proficient with simple weapons, and with light armor, but not with shields.

    Spells:
    An Inquisitor casts divine spells, which are drawn from the Inquisitor spell list. He can cast any spell he knows without preparing it ahead of time. To learn or cast a spell, an Inquisitor must have a Charisma score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against an Inquisitorís spell is 10 + the spell level + the Inquisitorís Charisma modifier.

    Like other spellcasters, an Inquisitor can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day. His base daily spell allotment is given on Table: The Inquisitor. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Charisma score. When Table: The Inquisitor indicates that the Inquisitor gets 0 spells per day of a given spell level, he gains only the bonus spells he would be entitled to based on his Charisma score for that spell level.

    The Inquisitor has a number of spells known equal to that of a Bard of equal level. The Inquisitor draws spells from the Inquisitor spell list.

    Upon reaching 5th level, and again at 8th level, an Inquisitor can choose to learn a new spell in place of one he already knows. In effect, the Inquisitor "loses" the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spellís level must be the same as that of the spell being exchanged, and it must be at least two levels lower than the highest-level Inquisitor spell the Inquisitor can cast. An Inquisitor may swap only a single spell at any given level, and must choose whether or not to swap the spell at the same time that he gains new spells known for the level.

    Deity, Domains, and Domain Spells:
    An Inquisitorís deity influences his alignment, what magic he can perform, his values, and how others see him. An Inquisitor chooses two domains from among those belonging to his deity. An Inquisitor can select an alignment domain (Chaos, Evil, Good, or Law) only if his alignment matches that domain.

    If an Inquisitor is not devoted to a particular deity, he still selects two domains to represent his spiritual inclinations and abilities. The restriction on alignment domains still applies.

    Each domain gives the Inquisitor access to a domain spell at each spell level he can cast, from 1st on up, as well as a granted power. The Inquisitor gets the granted powers of both the domains selected.

    With access to two domain spells at a given spell level, an Inquisitor prepares one or the other each day in his domain spell slot. If a domain spell is not on the cleric spell list, a cleric can prepare it only in his domain spell slot.

    Trapfinding: See the Rogue class feature of the same name.

    Inquisitor Archetype:
    At first level, the Inquisitor chooses one of the following archetypes. This choice cannot be changed after it is made.
    Righteous Investigator: The Inquisitor gains Urban Tracking as a bonus feat adds half his or her Inquisitor level to all Intimidate, Perception, Sense Motive, and Social checks. The Inquisitor adds the following spells to his or her list of spells known:
    1st: Detect Good, Detect Evil, Detect Law, Detect Chaos
    2nd: Zone of Truth, See Invisibility
    3rd: Discern Lies, Locate Creature, Locate Object, Scrying
    Righteous Trickster: The Inquisitor gains +1d6 sneak attack damage adds half his or her Inquisitor level to all Bluff, Fraud, Sleight of Hand, and Stealth checks. The Inquisitor adds the following spells to his or her list of spells known:
    1st: Disguise Self, Obscure Object, Pass Without Trace, Undetectable Alignment
    2nd: Silence, Invisibility, Misdirection
    3rd: Glibness, Nondetection, Zone of Silence

    Judgement (Su): See the Pathfinder Inquisitor class feature here.

    Holy Guidance (Su): Starting at 3rd level, the Inquisitor becomes perpetually under the effect of a protection from [alignment] spell. Good Inquisitors are protected from evil, evil Inquisitors are protected from good, and neutral Inquisitors can choose (this choice must be made at first level and cannot be changed once it is made). Additionally, lawful Inquisitors are protected from chaos, chaotic Inquisitors are protected from law, and neutral Inquisitors can choose (this choice must be made at first level and cannot be changed once it is made). For example, a lawful neutral Inquisitor is protected from chaos and either good or evil.

    Mystic Ability (Su): At level four, an Inquisitor gains one Mystic Ability from the Inquisitor list.

    Bane (Su): See the Inquisitor class feature, here.

    Greater Holy Guidance (Su): Starting at 6th level, all constant protection from [alignment] effects granted to the Inquisitor by the Holy Guidance ability are uprgraded to perpetual magic circle against [alignment] effects.

    Second Judgement: See the Pathfinder Inquisitor class feature here.

    The Prophet:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Abilities: Intelligence and Wisdom are the most important abilities for a Prophet. One is the key statistic for their arcane casting, and the other is the key statistic for their divine casting. A good Dexterity and Constitution will be invaluable for making up for the lack of armor and hit points.
    Starting Age: As Wizard.
    Starting Gold: As Wizard.

    Class Skills
    The Prophet's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Knowledge (all skills, taken individually) (Int), Linguistics (Int), Mechanics (Int), Perception (Wis), Profession (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), and Social (Cha).

    Skills Trained: 2 + Int modifier

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the Prophet.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The Prophet is proficient with simple weapons, but with no armor or shield.

    Spells:
    The Prophet gains access to both arcane and divine spells. Prophets draw arcane spells from the Wizard spell list, but may only choose three schools from which spells may be drawn. He also gains access to the Divination school for free. The Prophet has a number of spells known equal to a Sorcerer of his level. Prophets also draw divine spells from three Cleric domains of choice. He knows all the spells of his three domains. Prophets may not choose domains that do not match his alignment (for example, a good Prophet may not choose evil as one of his domains). Since domains do not have 0-level spells (orisons), Prophets may choose orisons from the Cleric, Druid, and Inquisitor spell list. He has a number of orisons known equal to twice his Prophet level.

    Prophets use Intelligence to determine the number of bonus arcane spells per day they have, and the DCs of arcane spells, and use Wisdom to determine the number of bonus divine spells per day they have, and the DCs of divine spells.

    Prophet Spells Per Day:

    Mystic Ability: At level one, the Prophet chooses one Mystic Ability from the Prophet list.

    Theurgy (Su): A number of times per day shown on the table, a Prophet who applies a metamagic feat he has to a spell (either divine or arcane) and casts another spell that is of the opposite type (divine, if the previous round's spell was arcane, or vice versa) in the following round, he may apply the same metamagic feat to that spell with a reduced (by one half level) spell adjustment. For example, Maelojas is a sixth level Prophet with the Empower Spell feat. Maelojas casts an Empowered Ray of Enfeeblement in the first round of combat, and casts an Empowered Cure Serious Wounds in the second. Empowering a spell takes up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell would normally use, but Maelojas may apply it at a reduced (-3 from half Maelojas's level) cost because of his Theurgy ability.

    Bonus Metamagic Feat: At the indicated levels, a Prophet gains a bonus metamagic feat that he qualifies for.

    Prophecy (Sp): Starting at third level, a Prophet may use augury as a spell like ability a number of times per day equal to his Prophet level.

    Greater Theurgy (Su): A number of times per day shown on the table, when a Prophet uses his Theurgy ability, he may, instead of casting the next spell in the following round, Quicken it for free (as if using the Quicken Spell feat, but without the spell slot adjustment).

    Great Prophecy (Sp): Starting at fifth level, a Prophet may use divination as a spell like ability a number of times per day equal to half his Prophet level.

    Dread Prophecy (Sp): Starting at seventh level, a Prophet may use commune once per day as a spell like ability.

    The Spellblade
    Spoiler
    Show
    As the Magus class, except the Spellblade:
    a) has a spells per day progression of a Bard of equal level. Spellblades may scribe a number of spells in their spellbook equal to 3 x the Bard's spells known (but they still prepare spells).
    b) gains a full base attack bonus.
    c) gains Melee or Ranged Focus as a bonus feat at level 1 (unless multiclassing into Spellblade from another class).
    d) does not gain a good Fortitude save.
    e) gains a Mystic Ability from the Spellblade list at level 4.


    Changes to Old Core Classes
    Spoiler
    Show
    Barbarian
    Barbarians gain either Melee or Ranged Focus as a bonus feat at level 1. However, a character multiclassing into Barbarian from another class does not gain this bonus feat.
    Barbarians gain a good Reflex save.
    Tough it Out: A number of times per day equal to half the Barbarianís highest Base Attack Bonus, rounded up, a Barbarian of second level or higher who has taken damage may immediately attempt a Fortitude save (DC equal to 7 + damage dealt). If successful, the Barbarian converts the damage to non lethal damage.
    Since skill points no longer exist, becoming literate requires the Barbarian to be trained in Linguistics.
    Barbarians gain pounce at level 6. If the Barbarian gains Greater Mastery of the Blitz Combat Technique at level 8, he exchanges this ability for a bonus feat at that point (but no sooner).
    Barbarians gain Tireless Rage at level 8.
    Bard
    Bards gain the Pathfinder Bard's Distraction class feature at level 1.
    Bards do not gain 3rd level spells at 7th level. Instead, they gain a single 3rd level Bard spell known, and a single 3rd level spell per day, at level 8.
    Bards gain the Trapfinding class feature at level 1.
    Bards gain the Dabbler feat at level 4.
    At level four, a Bard gains one Mystic Ability from the Bard list.
    Bards gain their suggestion class feature at level 7.
    Cleric
    Clerics have spells known from the Cleric spell list equal to 3 x the Sorcererís spells known (but they still prepare spells). Since Sorcerers learn spells of a new level a level later than other classes, treat the Cleric as having 1 2nd-level spell known at 3rd level, and 1 3rd-level spell known at 5th level. Additionally, Clerics gain Cure (or Inflict) Minor Wounds and Cure (or Inflict) Light Wounds as bonus spells known at level 1, Cure (or Inflict) Moderate Wounds as a bonus spell known at level 3, and Cure (or Inflict) Serious Wounds as a bonus spell known at level 5.
    At level one, a Cleric gains one Mystic Ability from the Cleric list.
    Druid
    Druids have spells known from the Druid spell list equal to 3 x the Sorcererís spells known (but they still prepare spells).

Additionally, Druids gain Summon Natureís Ally I as bonus spells known at level 1, Summon Natureís Ally II as a bonus spell known at level 3, and Summon Natureís Ally III as a bonus spell known at level 5.
    Like Barbarians, Druids start off play with the Illiteracy class feature. Since skill points no longer exist, becoming literate requires the Druid to be trained in Linguistics.
    Druids gain Wild Shape 1/day at level 4, Wild Shape 2/day at level 6, and Wild Shape 3/day at level 8.
    Druids do not gain an animal companion.
    At level one, a Druid gains one Mystic Ability from the Druid list.
    Use the Pathfinder Wild Shape Rules for the Druid Wild Shape ability.
    Fighter
    Fighters gain either Melee or Ranged Focus as a bonus feat at level 1. However, a character multiclassing into Fighter from another class does not gain this bonus feat.
    Add Knowledge (Social), Mechanics, Perception, Sense Motive, Social, and Survival to the Fighter class skill list.
    The Fighter now has trained skills equal to 4 + Int modifier.
    Tough it Out: A number of times per day equal to half the Fighterís highest Base Attack Bonus, rounded up, a Fighter of second level or higher who has taken damage may immediately attempt a Fortitude save (DC equal to 7 + damage dealt). If successful, the Fighter converts the damage to non lethal damage.
    The Fighter gains a +1 bonus to CMB and CMD at level 1. This increases to +2 at level 5.
    The Fighter gains a +1 bonus to his/her effective Base Attack Bonus for the purpose of determining Combat Techniques. This increases to +2 at level 5.
    Armor Skill: At 2nd, 4th, 6th, and 8th level, a Fighter reduces the Armor Check penalty from wearing armor by 1, to a minimum of 0.
    Mastery of Body: Starting at 1st level, a Fighter may train for one hour at the start of each day, practicing martial techniques. This might be weapon drills, exercises, or even meditation. After training, the Fighter is treated as continuously under the effect of one (or two at 3rd level, three at 5th level, and four at 7th level) of the following abilities for the next 24 hours (effective caster level equal to the character's Fighter level):
    Acclimated (equivalent of endure elements), Athletic (equivalent of jump), Deadly (equivalent of keen edge), Resistant (equivalent of resist energy), Skilled (equivalent to divine favor), Swift (equivalent of longstrider), Thick-Skinned (equivalent of barkskin), Vigorous (equivalent of aid), Zealous (equivalent to align weapon).
    Grit: At level 3, when a Fighter succeeds on a Fortitude save, and he or she would normal suffer a partial effect (such as half damage), he or she instead suffers no effect.
    Uncanny Dodge: Fighters gain this class feature (see the Barbarian feature) at level 4.
    Zeal: At level 5, a when a Fighter succeeds on a Will save, and he or she would normal suffer a partial effect (such as half damage), he or she instead suffers no effect.
    Evasion: At level 7, when a Fighter succeeds on a Reflex save, and he or she would normal suffer a partial effect (such as half damage), he or she instead suffers no effect.
    Improved Uncanny Dodge: Fighters gain this class feature (see the Barbarian feature) at level 8.
    Lightly-Armor Fighter Variant:
    A Fighter may choose to lose proficiency with medium armor, heavy armor, shields, their good Fortitude save, and the Armor Training class feature, in exchange for:
    a) A good Reflex save.
    b) Dodge as a bonus feat at level 1.
    c) Acrobatics and Stealth as class skills.
    d) Starting at level 2, a Lightly-Armor Fighter may add either his/her Intelligence or Wisdom modifier as a dodge bonus to AC (minimum 1).
    e) At level 4, a Lightly-Armored Fighter gains a +5-foot bonus to his speed. This bonus increases to +10-feet at level 8.
    Monk
    Use jiriku's Monk as fixed here.
    Monks only gain 6 + Int trained skills per level, not 8.
    The Monk's unarmored AC bonus applies to CMD as well as AC. The Monk's Empty Strike class feature applies to CMB as well as attack and damage.
    Monks do not gain the Versatile Attack class feature. They gain Empty Strike at level 1, but it replaces Strength instead of adding to it.
    Monks are allowed to multiclass freely, and may continue taking levels in Monk even after having multiclassed.
    Paladin
    Paladins gain either Melee or Ranged Focus as a bonus feat at level 1. However, a character multiclassing into Paladin from another class does not gain this bonus feat.
    Paladins are allowed to multiclass freely, and may continue taking levels in Paladin even after having multiclassed.
    Paladins add Athletics to their class skill list.
    Paladins have the Bard's spells per day progression, and may learn a number of spells on the Pathfinder Paladin spell list (with the addition of cantrips from the Cleric spell list) equal to 3 x the Bard's spells known (but they still prepare spells).
    The Paladinís Smite Evil is as follows: A number of times per day equal to half your Paladin level, rounded up, minimum one, you may add twice your Charisma bonus (minimum 1) as a bonus to an attack roll and a number of d6ís to damage equal to your Paladin level against an evil creature. If you accidentally use a Smite Evil attempt against a non-evil creature, there is no effect, but it still counts against your Smite Evil attempts for the day.
    Paladin spells are Charisma based, not Wisdom based.
    Tough it Out: A number of times per day equal to half the Paladinís highest Base Attack Bonus, rounded up, a Paladin of second level or higher who has taken damage may immediately attempt a Fortitude save (DC equal to 7 + damage dealt). If successful, the Paladin converts the damage to non lethal damage.
    The bonus to saving throws granted by the Divine Grace class feature is a sacred bonus (or a profane bonus, if the Paladin is one of Tyranny or Slaughter).
    At 4th level, a Paladin adds his/her Charisma bonus as a sacred bonus to AC (or a profane bonus, if the Paladin is one of Tyranny or Slaughter).
    At level four, a Paladin gains one Mystic Ability from the Paladin list.
    Paladins do not gain a Special Mount.
    At 8th level, a Paladin adds his/her Charisma bonus as a sacred bonus to damage rolls (or a profane bonus, if the Paladin is one of Tyranny or Slaughter).
    Ranger
    Rangers gain either Melee or Ranged Focus as a bonus feat at level 1. However, a character multiclassing into Ranger from another class does not gain this bonus feat.
    Rangers gain Trapfinding and Disable Device as a class skill.
    Rangers do not gain access to divine spells.
    Rangers do not gain an animal companion.
    Rangers gain the Monk's fast movement and AC progression (but not the Monk's Wisdom to AC), but, unlike the Monk, these abilities may be used in light armor.
    Rangers gain their first Combat Style feature at level 1 instead of level 2.
    Ranger combat style options are now chosen from the following list:
    Archery:
    At level 1, the Ranger gains Rapid Shot as a bonus feat.
    At level 6, the Ranger gains Manyshot as a bonus feat.
    Two-Weapon Fighting:
    At level 1, the Ranger gains Two-Weapon Fighting as a bonus feat.
    At level 6, the Ranger gains Rapid Two-Weapon Fighting as a bonus feat.
    Charging:
    At level 1, the Ranger adds 1d8 to his/her total damage on a charge.
    At level 6, the Ranger adds 2d8 to his/her total damage on a charge instead of 1d8.
    Mounted Combat:
    At level 1, the Ranger gains access to the Mounted Combat feat, even if he or she does not meet the prerequisites.
    At level 6, the Ranger gains access to the Ride-By Attack feat, even if he or she does not meet the prerequisites.
    Einhander:
    At level 1, the Ranger gains Einhander as a bonus feat.
    At level 6, the bonus to AC and damage rolls granted by the Einhander feat increases to one half of the character's base attack bonus, instead of one third.
    Sword and Shield:
    At level 1, the Ranger gains Improved Shield Bash as a bonus feat.
    At level 6, the bonus to AC granted by holding a shield increases by one third of the character's base attack bonus.
    At third and eighth level, the Ranger gains the Pathfinder Ranger's favored terrain class feature.
    Rogue
    Rogues have a d8 hit die instead of a d6 hit die.
    At 1st level, and again at 3rd, 5th, and 7th level, a Rogue gains Skill Specialization with a skill of choice.
    At level 2, a Rogue gains either Catís Grace, Eagleís Splendor, or Foxís Cunning once per day.
    At level 4, a Rogue gains either Silence or Glibness once per day.
    At level 6, a Rogue gains an additional use per day of the spell like ability he or she selected at level 2.
    Rogues gain Rogue special abilities at 1st, 4th, and 7th level (instead of starting at 10th level).
    At level 8, a Rogue gains an additional use per day of the spell like ability he or she selected at level 4.
    At level 8, as long as both the Rogue and at least one ally threaten the same opponent, the rogue may treat that opponent as flanked.
    Sorcerer
    Sorcerers have a d6 hit die instead of a d4 hit die.
    At level one, a Sorcerer gains one Mystic Ability from the Sorcerer list.
    The Sorcerer gains a bonus Metamagic or Item Creation feat at levels 4 and 8.
    Use Pathfinder Sorcerer bloodlines as detailed here. 9th level bloodline powers are instead gained at 8th level.
    Wizard
    Wizards can have spells in their spell book equal to 3 x the Sorcererís spells known (but they still prepare spells). Since Sorcerers learn spells of a new level a level later than other classes, treat the wizard as having 1 2nd-level spell in his/her spell book at 3rd level, and 1 3rd-level spell in his/her spell book at 5th level. Wizards are capable of learning the spells in one spell book well enough to cast them, but no more than that.
    At level one, a Wizard gains one Mystic Ability from the Wizard list.
    Wizards does not gain a bonus feat at level 5. Instead, he or she gains the Fighter's bonus feat progression, but may choose only Metamagic and Item Creation feats for those feat slots.
    At level 4, a wizard may choose one spell in his/her spellbook. This choice of spell cannot be changed once it is made. The wizard may cast this spell spontaneously, like a Sorcerer, or a good Cleric casting a cure spell. The wizard may choose another spell to cast spontaneously at level 7.

    Use Magic Device (Cha) is unchanged.
    *Armor Check Penalty applies, double for swimming.
    Skill ranks no longer exist. You can train yourself in a number of skills equal to (class amount) + Int modifier, which allows you to add your level as a bonus to that skill. You gain a +3 bonus to trained skills.
    Training yourself in a cross-class skill is exactly the same as training yourself in a class skill, except you gain no +3 bonus.
    Knowledge, Linguistics, Mechanics, Perform, Profession, Sleight of Hand, and Use Magic Device cannot be used untrained.
    Synergy bonuses are as follows:
    {table=head]A +5 training bonus to...|Grants a +2 synergy bonus to...
    Acrobatics|Athletics, Stealth
    Athletics|Acrobatics
    Bluff|Fraud, Intimidate, Sense Motive, Sleight of Hand, Social
    Fraud|Bluff
    Handle Animal|Ride, Wild Empathy (see Druids and Rangers)

    Survival|Knowledge (Natural)
    Use Magic Device|Knowledge (Mystic)
    Use Rope|Sleight of Hand, CMB Rolls to Escape from a Grapple[/table]
    Racial Skill Bonuses: If a race had a bonus to a skill that is now part of a new skill, the race applies that bonus to the entire new skill.
    Class Skill Lists: If a class had a skill on its class skill list that is now part of a new skill, the class has the new skill on its class skill list as well.
    Multiclassing and Skills: If you multiclass into a class that has more trained skills per level than your old one did, you may select a number of skills from the new class's skill list to be trained in equal to the number by which that class's trained skills allotment exceeds your other class's trained skill allotment. You are now trained in these skills. However, you add only your level in the new class (the one granting you the extra skills trained) to your skill checks, as opposed to your character level, and you do not gain a +3 bonus to checks for them being class skills.
    For example, Rumiel is a fourth level Elven Fighter (Lightly-Armored Variant). When Rumiel becomes fifth level, he decides he wants to take a level of Monk. Fighters have 4 trained skills. Monks have 8 trained skills. When Rumiel takes his level in Monk, he may choose 4 skills from the Monk skill list to become trained in, but he only adds his Monk level to the check instead of his character level, and he does not add the +3 bonus to those skill check modifiers for them being class skills, due to the fact that they were acquired via multiclassing.
    If you multiclass into a class that has fewer trained skills than your old class did, you must choose a number of your trained skills equal to the difference between your old class's skill allotment and your new class's skill allotment and not advance those skills due to not having enough trained skills from your new class to do so.
    For example, Aurix is a second level Aasimar Monk. Aurix decides she wants to take her third level in Psychic Warrior. Monks have 8 trained skills. Psychic Warriors have 2 trained skills. Aurix must choose 6 trained skills to which she only adds her Monk level, as opposed to her character level.


    Feats:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Feats are gained as follows:
    2 at level 1.
    1 at level 3.
    1 at level 5.
    1 at level 7.
    1 for every 1,000 XP after level 8.

    Remember to convert monsters as well as PCs so that they get the right number of feats each.
    New and Changed Feats:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Acrobatic, Agile, Alertness, Animal Affinity, Athletic, Deceitful, Deft Hands, Diligent, Investigator, Magical Aptitude, Negotiator, Nimble Fingers, Persuasive, Self-Sufficient, Skill Focus, and Stealthy are removed. They are replaced with Skill Specialization, which grants you a +5 bonus to a skill of choice.
    Combat Casting allows you to suffer no penalty for casting defensively.
    Craft Wondrous Item has a prerequisite of Caster Level 8th.
    Craft Magic Arms and Armor, Craft Rod, Craft Staff, Craft Wand, and Forge Ring are removed.
    Add the following feat:
    Craft Magic Item [Item Creation]
    Prerequisite: Caster Level 3rd.
    Benefit: Choose one Profession skill that can be used for crafting an object of some sort. You become trained in that skill. In addition, you may use the ability that increases your spell DCs to modify your check instead of Intelligence (nothing changes if Intelligence is the statistic that increases your spell DCs). When creating a masterwork version of your item, you may choose to forgo the normal effects that the masterwork quality has and instead choose one of the following:
    If you are adding the masterwork quality to a weapon, you may add to the weapon one of the enchantments listed here that is equivalent to a +1 bonus.
    If you are adding the masterwork quality to armor or a shield, you may add to the armor or shield one of the enchantments listed here that is equivalent to a +1 bonus.
    Add the following feat:
    Item Bond [Item Creation]
    Prerequisite: Caster Level 1st.
    Benefit: You bond with some form of inanimate, unintelligent object, such as a staff, a sword, or an amulet. Channeling your magic through that object strengthens your mystic power (examples from fiction include Gandalf's staff, or Sauron's Ring of Power). Choose two spells you know (or that are in your spellbook) that share the same descriptor. You store and channel these spells through your item. Mechanically, this means that you gain an extra spell per day that can be used to cast either of the spells you have chosen to channel and that your effective Caster Level increases by 2 for all spells you cast via your item, as long as you have the item on your person. Initiating the ritual to bond with an item requires 100 gp worth of special materials and takes one month to complete (although you need not spend every moment of every day working on your item during that time period).
    At 4th level, and again at 6th level, you may choose to gain another spell that you may channel through the item, as long as it has the same descriptor as the other two. The spell may be of the highest level you know. At 3rd, 5th, and 7th level, you gain an addional spell per day to use on one of your channeled spells.
    If your item is lost, stolen, or broken, you must make a Will save (DC 10 + [number of spells you were using the item to channel + number of spells per day the feat grants you] x 2) or lose the capability to use the spells you were channeling via the item for one week. If you fail the save by 5 or more, you are shaken for one week and lose the ability to cast the spells for two weeks. If you roll a natural one, you lose knowledge of the spells for two weeks and become shaken and nauseated for three weeks.
    Another person who comes into possession of the item may use it if they make a successful caster level check (or a Use Magic Device check), DC equal to the Will save mentioned earlier in the feat's description, each time they attempt to use the item.
    Two months after you lose an item you have bonded with, you may craft a new one by spending another 100 gp.
    Bonded items can also be willingly given away, with no risk of losing the ability to cast the spells or suffering negative conditions. Additionally, items can be sold, and the general minimum price for such an item is (amount of spells per day the item can cast + amount of spells the item "knows) x 50 gp.
    Add the following feat:
    Dabbler [General]
    Prerequisite: Intelligence 13.
    Benefit: You may use all skills untrained.
    Normal: Some skills cannot be used untrained.
    Deflect Arrows and Snatch Arrows are merged into Deflect Arrows, and the prerequisite of Improved Unarmed Strike is removed.
    Dodge allows you to add one half your level as a dodge bonus to AC (against all targets). However, the bonus granted by this feat is reduced to +1 if you are wearing medium armor and/or carrying a light shield, and negated if you are wearing heavy armor and/or carrying a heavy shield.
    Add the following feat:
    Armored Dodge [General]
    Prerequisites: Dexterity 13, Dodge
    Benefit: The Dodge bonus to AC granted by the Dodge feat is not decreased when you wear medium or heavy armor and/or carry a shield.
    Special: This feat may be taken as a Fighter bonus feat.
    Add the following feat:
    Einhander [General]
    Benefit: When wielding a one-handed weapon in one hand and holding nothing in the other, you gain a shield bonus to AC and a circumstance bonus to damage rolls equal to one third of your Base Attack Bonus.
    Special: This feat may be taken as a Fighter bonus feat.
    Eschew Materials is removed, due to the fact that most material components do not exist.
    Add the following feat:
    Great Fortitude allows you to add one third your level to Fortitude saves.
    Add the following feat:
    Greater Inspire Courage [General]
    Prerequisite: Inspire Courage class feature.
    Benefit: the bonus to attack and damage granted by your Inspire Courage ability is increased by one.
    Improved Critical's Base Attack Bonus prerequisite is reduced to BAB +3.
    Improved Feint allows you to feint as a swift action. If you have the Improved Feint feat, a successful feint deals an additional amount of damage equal to your Base Attack Bonus.
    Iron Will allows you to add one third your level to Will saves.
    Lightning Reflexes allows you to add one third your level to Reflex saves.
    Natural Spell no longer exists (sorry, no bear-shooting bears anymore).
    Martial Weapon Proficiency and Simple Weapon Proficiency grants proficiency with all martial (or simple, respectively) weapons, not just one.
    Point Blank Shot is removed and replaced with Ranged Focus (see below). Everything that used to have the prerequisite of Point Blank Shot now has the prerequisite of Ranged Focus.
    Precise Shot is removed.
    Run adds 10 feet to a characterís land speed instead of its old benefits.
    Add the following feat:
    Skill Training [General]
    Prerequisite: Intelligence 13, must have practiced skill in question (as determined by DM)
    Benefit: You become trained in one skill of your choice, whether it is a class skill or not.
    Add the following feat:
    Shorten Grip [General]
    Prerequisite: Proficient with any reach weapon.
    Benefit: When wielding a reach weapon, you may strike opponents adjacent to you as well as those 10 feet away.
    Special: A Fighter may take this as one of his/her Fighter bonus feats.
    Spell Focus grants a bonus to DCs of your chosen school equal to one third of your caster level. Greater Spell Focus, however, is unchanged.
    Toughness grants +3 hit points +1 per hit die. It can no longer be taken multiple times.
    Two-Weapon Fighting is merged with Improved Two-Weapon Fighting, and has a prerequisite of Dex 13 instead of Dex 15. The feat allows you to add your full Strength modifier to attacks with an off-hand weapon.
    Two-Weapon Defense now grants a shield bonus to AC equal to half your level while wielding to weapons or a double weapon.
    Add the following feat:
    Rapid Two-Weapon Fighting [General]
    Prerequisite: Two-Weapon Fighting, Base Attack Bonus +3
    Benefit: When making a standard action attack, you may make an extra attack with your off-hand weapon. Both attacks take a -2 penalty (if you are fighting with a light weapon in your off hand, or -4 if you are fighting with a one-handed weapon in your off hand). Penalties can be reduced by Two-Weapon Mastery as normal.
    Add the following feat:
    Two-Weapon Mastery [General]
    Prerequisite: Two-Weapon Fighting, Base Attack Bonus +2
    Benefit: The penalties for two weapon fighting are reduced by 1 per 2 points of Base Attack Bonus you have. Penalties may not be reduced beyond 0.
    Special: A Fighter may take this as one of his/her Fighter bonus feats.
    Weapon Aptitude (the class feature found here) is available as a feat (fighter bonus) with a prerequisite of BAB +2.
    Weapon Finesse has a prerequisite of Dex 13 instead of BAB +1.
    Weapon Focus is renamed Melee Focus. It grants a +1 bonus per 4 levels, minimum 1, to all melee attack rolls.
    Add the following feat:
    Ranged Focus [General]
    Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus per 4 levels, minimum 1, on all ranged attack rolls.
    Special: A fighter may select this feat as a fighter bonus feat.
    Weapon Specialization is renamed Melee Specialization now has the prerequisite of Melee Focus or Ranged Focus instead of Weapon Focus, and no prerequisite of Fighter levels, and allows you to add half your base attack bonus to damage rolls with a chosen weapon.
    Add the following feat:
    Ranged Specialization [General]
    Prerequisite: Ranged Focus.
    Benefit: You gain a bonus on all ranged damage rolls equal to half your base attack bonus.
    Special: A fighter may select this feat as a fighter bonus feat.
    Greater Weapon Focus ceases to exist.
    Flaws:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Frail is removed, because it overlaps with Pathetic Constitution.
    Inattentive imposes a -6 penalty on Perception checks.
    Meager Fortitude imposes a -4 penalty on Fortitude saves.
    Murky-Eyed, in addition to its standard disadvantages, imposes a -2 penalty to Perception checks.

    The club deals 1d8 damage instead of 1d6, or 1d6 for small characters.
    The shortbow deals 1d8 damage instead of 1d6, or 1d6 for small characters.
    The longbow deals 1d10 damage instead of 1d8, or 1d8 for small characters.
    The kama has a critical range of 18-20/x2. In addition, you can make a disarm attack with a kama without taking a penalty to your disarm attempt for wielding a light weapon.
    You do not take a penalty to your disarm attempt when wielding a nunchaku, and you get an additional +4 bonus to disarm checks. Additionally, you can use a nunchaku to make trip attempts.
    You do not take a penalty to your disarm attempt when wielding a sai, and you get an additional +4 bonus to disarm checks. A sai has a critical range of 19-20/x2.
    Sianghams are simple weapons instead of exotic weapons.
    A bastard sword deals 2d6 damage instead of 1d10, or 1d10 for small characters. When wielding a bastard sword, you may add 1.5 x your Strength modifier to damage rolls as if you were wielding it 2-handed. You may additionally treat it as a 2-handed weapon for the purposes of determining Power Attack damage.
    A dwarven waraxe deals 1d12 damage instead of 1d10, or 1d10 for small characters. When wielding a dwarven waraxe, you may add 1.5 x your Strength modifier to damage rolls as if you were wielding it 2-handed. You may additionally treat it as a 2-handed weapon for the purposes of determining Power Attack damage.
    The orc double axe deals 1d10/1d10 damage instead of 1d8/1d8, or 1d8/1d8 for small characters.
    The dire flail deals 1d10/1d10 damage instead of 1d8/1d8, or 1d8/1d8 for small characters.

    Light shields grant a shield bonus to AC equal to 1/4 the userís highest Base Attack Bonus, rounded up.
    Heavy shields grant a shield bonus to AC equal to (1/2 the userís highest Base Attack Bonus) + 1, rounded up.
    Masterwork Items, Magic Items, and Character Wealth:
    Spoiler
    Show
    All magic items except items that are listed in the 3.5 Dungeon Master's Guide as costing less than 3000 gp are eliminated (special materials, such as adamantine or mithral, are still available). All ability score boosting items, minor or not, are also eliminated. Give characters wondrous items sparingly. They should not be purchasable on a normal market, as they are now exceedingly rare. A character should maybe acquire one or two over the course of the character's entire adventuring career. This should restore a sense of wonder to the items, instead of the casual practicality with which they are often looked upon in standard D&D. Should the situation ever arise, a magic item never allows a character to qualify for a feat they otherwise could not qualify for.
    Masterwork items now cost an additional 800 gp instead of 300 gp, or 1600 gp for a double weapon.
    Masterwork weapons provide a +1 bonus on attack and damage rolls, not just attack rolls.
    Reference the following table to determine the wealth of any given character:
    {table=head]Level|Expected Wealth (by end of Level)
    1st|150 gp
    2nd|400 gp
    3rd|800 gp
    4th|1300 gp
    5th|1950 gp
    6th|2700 gp
    7th|3600 gp
    8th|4600 gp
    +10 feats|+1000 gp[/table]

    Mystic Abilities:
    Spoiler
    Show
    Mystic Abilities are unique tricks gained by spellcasters designed to enhance customization of arcane or divine characters. Familiars, animal companions, and special mounts are all mystic abilities, as are an array of other abilities presented here.
    Coming soon!

    Spells:
    Spoiler

    Battle Points (an Old, Long Since Removed Rule, Recorded Here for No Reason in Particular):
    Spoiler
    Show
    Certain classes have access to battle points. These classes gain a number of battle points per day equal to the part of their base attack bonus granted to them by classes granting battle points times three (for example, a Fighter 8 would have 24 battle points per day, but a Fighter 2/Warblade 6 would only have 6 battle points despite having the same base attack bonus as the 8th level Fighter). These are abilities that you can apply to singular instances where you would have to make a roll or use a defense. Battle Points require no action to use.
    Battle Points are divided into offensive stunts and defensive stunts. Offensive stunts effect your actions on your turn (usually an attack), whereas defensive stunts effect you when it is not your turn.
    You may use a maximum number of battle points on one Stunt equal to half your base attack bonus, rounded up. For example, a 5th level Fighter wants to make an attack roll and spend as many battle points as he can (in this case, 3). He could use a Three Battle Point Offensive Stunt, a Two Battle Point Offensive Stunt combined with a One Battle Point Offensive Stunt, or three One Battle Point Offensive Stunts. You can apply the same Stunt twice. For example, the same 5th level Fighter could use 3 Battle Points to give himself 30% miss chance against one attack by using the same One Battle Point Defensive Stunt 3 times.
    One Battle Point Offensive Stunts
    You gain a +1 bonus to one attack roll (to a maximum of +2 by spending 2 battle points at level 3+).
    You gain a +2 bonus to one damage roll (to a maximum of +6 by spending 3 battle points at level 5+).
    You gain a +2 bonus to your CMB for one round (to a maximum of +6 by spending 3 battle points at level 5+).
    One Battle Point Defensive Stunts
    You gain +1 AC against one attack (to a maximum of +2 by spending 2 battle points at level 3+).
    You gain DR 2/- against one attack (no cap).
    You gain 10% miss chance against one attack (to a maximum of 30% by spending 3 battle points at level 5+).
    You gain a +2 bonus to your CMD for one round (to a maximum of +6 by spending 3 battle points at level 5+).
    You gain a +4 bonus to one save against a fear effect (to a maximum of +8 by spending 2 battle points at level 3+).
    You gain a +2 bonus to one saving throw (to a maximum of +6 by spending 3 battle points at level 5+).
    Two Battle Point Offensive Stunts
    Automatically confirm a critical hit.
    Choose whether or not you are spending battle points on this stunt before you make your attack roll. On a successful attack roll, your opponent is dazed until next turn if they fail their Fortitude save (10 + 1/2 BAB rounded down + Str modifier).
    Choose whether or not you are spending battle points on this stunt before you make your attack roll. On a successful attack roll, your opponent must make a Fort save each round (10 + 1/2 BAB rounded down + Str modifier) or take a -5 foot penalty to speed. This condition lasts until the subject of the condition regains hit points, either by mundane or magical means. You may not spend multiple battle points to increase the speed penalty for this stunt.
    Ignore an opponentís armor bonus to AC for one attack.
    Ignore an opponentís shield bonus to AC for one attack.
    For one attack, treat a light or one handed weapon as a two handed weapon for the purposes of determining how much of your Str modifier you add to damage, and the damage bonus Power Attack grants.
    Two Battle Point Defensive Stunts
    When an enemy within your reach that you threaten attacks an ally, they provoke an attack of opportunity from you.
    You cannot be flanked until beginning of next turn.
    You gain evasion on one Reflex save. If you have evasion already, you gain improved evasion.
    You gain uncanny dodge against one attack roll made against you. If you have uncanny dodge already, you gain improved uncanny dodge.
    Immediately after being hit by an attack, you heal yourself for (1d8 + your Con modifier) damage points cured.
    Three Battle Point Offensive Stunts
    Choose whether or not you are spending battle points on this stunt before you make your attack roll. If your attack is successful, it overcomes damage reduction.
    Choose whether or not you are spending battle points on this stunt before you make your attack roll. If your attack is successful, your opponent must make a Fort save (10 + 1/2 BAB rounded down + Str modifier) or become fatigued.
    Choose whether or not you are spending battle points on this stunt before you make your attack roll. On a successful attack roll, your opponent is dazed until next turn if they fail their Fortitude save (10 + 1/2 BAB rounded down + Str modifier).
    Three Battle Point Defensive Stunts
    Against one attack, you may use your normal AC instead of your touch AC.
    Against one attack, you may use your normal AC instead of your flat footed AC.
    You may replace a Fortitude save with an Athletics check.
    Four Battle Point Offensive Stunts
    For one round, you can move and attack normally, even under the influence of magic that usually impedes movement, such as paralysis, slow, and web. You automatically succeed on any grapple check made to resist a grapple attempt, as well as on grapple checks made to escape a grapple or a pin.
    Gain an extra attack at your highest Base Attack Bonus.
    Gain two extra attacks at your lowest Base Attack Bonus.
    Four Battle Point Defensive Stunts
    You may replace a Reflex save with an Acrobatics check.
    You may replace a Will save with a Fortitude save.

    Seems to focus on making combat faster, do liek!
    Normally, this could be a problem with heroes dying faster, but the action points balance it out.

    I'm glad you like it! If there is anything you would change, please let me know. After all, you're going to be a member of my guinea pig group, so you should have some say in what the system is like.

    Also, thanks for moving this back on to the first page! I was going to do that myself so Waymaker could get some more attention before I run a session with it, but it completely slipped my mind.
