The fastest path into this advanced class
is from a combination of Strong and Tough hero basic classes, though other paths are possible.
To qualify to become a Wildlord, a character must fulfill the following criteria.
Handle Animal 6 ranks, Survival 6 ranks.
Wildlords gain 1d8 hit points
per level. The character's Constitution modifier applies.
Wildlords gain a number of action points
equal to 6 plus one-half their character level, rounded down, every time they advance a level in this class.
The Wildlord's class skills
are as follows: Climb (Str)
, Concentration (Con)
, Drive (Dex)
, Diplomacy (Cha)
, Handle Animal (Cha)
, Hide (Dex)
, Knowledge (Behavioral sciences, earth and life sciences, physical sciences), Move Silently (Dex)
, Navigate (Int)
, Pilot (Dex)
, Profession (Wis)
, Ride (Dex)
, Spot (Wis)
, Survival (Wis)
, Swim (Str)
, Treat Injury (Wis)
Skill Points at Each Level:
5 + Intelligence modifier.
At 1st level, the Wildlord gains the ability to use her Handle Animal skill
to improve the attitude of an animal or magical beast. The interaction is treated as a Diplomacy skill check
, with Handle Animal used instead of Diplomacy. The Wildlord needs to be within 30 feet of the creature to use this ability.
Most domestic animals have a starting attitude of indifferent, while most wild animals are unfriendly. (Exceptions exist: trained guard dogs may have an initial reaction of hostile to strangers.)
The Wildlord may also seek to influence magical beasts (including those she has never encountered before) at a -4 penalty. Animal empathy
does not function on vermin.
At 2nd level, the Wildlord gains Track
as a bonus feat
, if she does not already have it.
At 2nd level, the Wildlord may spend an action point
to transform an encountered animal into an animal companion
. This requires a full-round action
. The animal must already be friendly in attitude toward the Wildlord. This animal accompanies the Wildlord on her adventures as is appropriate to its species. The Wildlord may have a single animal companion
at a time.
Choose an animal from the following list: Ape, bear, big cat
, crocodile, deinonychus, dog (medium), donkey
, herd animal (such as cow, camel, or bison), horse, lizard
, monkey, octopus
, snake (constrictor, viper), squid
, tiger, or wolf. The creature may be an animal of Shadow. The animal cannot have more Hit Dice than the Wildlord has character levels.
The animal chosen remains an animal, but may gain additional abilities according to the level of the Wildlord (see Animal Companions
, below). The player running a Wildlord should consider the fact that certain animals may create problems in urban areas.
The Wildlord may release the animal back to the wild, regaining the action point
initially spent in the process. The Wildlord does not regain the action point
if the creatures dies. In either case, the Wildlord must wait at least 24 hours before attempting to gain another animal companion
At 3rd, 6th, and 9th level, the Wildlord gets a bonus feat
. The bonus feat
must be selected from the following list, and the Wildlord must meet all of the prerequisites for the feat to select it.
At 3rd level, the Wildlord becomes an expert at climbing. A successful Climb check allows her to move her full speed
rather than at half speed
At 4th level, the Wildlord gains +4 resistance bonus on saving throws
against natural poisons.
At 4th level, the Wildlord gains the supernatural ability to call her animal companion
to her. The animal companion
must be in the area (within a mile of the Wildlord's location), and will arrive within 10d6 minutes. Situations which the Wildlord and animal companion
are clearly separated the animal will express consternation and distress but will not be able to respond.
At 5th level, the Wildlord designates one skill
from her Wildlord class skill
list. When making a check with this skill, the Wildlord may take 10 even if stress and distractions would normally prevent her from doing so. She becomes so certain in the use of this skill that she can use it reliably even under adverse conditions.
At 7th level, the Wildlord is considered to be a master of nature lore, animals, and plants. The Wildlord gains a circumstance bonus equal to her Reputation
bonus when making skill checks
that are directly involved with her knowledge of the natural world. Such skills
would include applicable Knowledge skills
, as well as such social skills
as Intimidate and Bluff when animals are involved.
At 8th level, the Wildlord may spend an action point
to turn, command, or rebuke animals. This functions in the same manner as the ability to turn undead for the Acolyte.
At 9th level, the Wildlord gains the supernatural ability to transform her animal companion
into a small, inert object, such as a charm, a totem, or a stuffed animal, that may be carried around. While in object form, the transformed companion has the properties of the item.
The Wildlord may, as a move action
or part of a move action
, cast the object to the ground and cause it to immediately take its original form. The transformed creature is considered a magical beast as long as it remains the Wildlord's companion.
Command/Rebuke Magical Beasts
At 10th level, the Wildlord may spend an action point
to turn, command, or rebuke magical beasts. This functions in the same manner as the ability to turn, command, or rebuke undead for the Acolyte.
As the Wildlord grows in power and ability, so too does the power of her animal companion
Link, share spells
Class Level: The level of the Wildlord.
These are extra eight-sided (d8) Hit Dice, each of which gains a Constitution modifier, as normal. Remember that extra Hit Dice improve the animal companion
's base attack and base save bonuses. An animal companion
's base attack bonus
is equal to a Wildlord whose level equals the animal's HD. An animal companion
has good Fortitude and Reflex saves (treat it as a character whose level equals the animal's HD). The animal companion
doesn't gain any extra skill
points or feats
for bonus HD.
Add this figure to the animal companion
's Strength and Dexterity scores.
The animal companion
's devotion to its master is so complete, it gains a +4 morale bonus on all Will saves against Enchantment spells and effects.
The animal companion
gains the Multiattack feat
, if it has 3 or more natural attacks. If it does not have the requisite 3 or more natural attacks, the animal companion
instead gains a second attack with its primary natural attack, albeit at a -5 to the base attack bonus
