The windreaver, a person who uses his control over the forces of wind to avoid danger and harm, ignores equipment in favor of personal skill many times.
The windreaver uses a special method of casting spells that differs him from common spellcasters and allows him much greater flexibility then your average sorcerer, yet much weaker spellcasting power.
as the bard and the ranger, he is a sort of a "hybrid" characther, yet has his own uniqueness.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency
A windreaver is proficient with all simple weapons and all thrown weapons (including exotics) and is not proficient with any armor and shields

Spellcasting:
The windreaver casts arcane spells, which are drawn from the windreaver spell list. He can cast any spell from the list without preparing it ahead of time.
To cast a spell, a windreaver must have a Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + double the spell level and his level must be at least triple of that spell level.
The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against a windreaver's spell is 10 + the spell level + the windreaverís Intelligence modifier.
A windreaver can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level per day, the number of allowed spells per day is equal to his energy (listed in the table) where each spell takes energy equal to its spell level, a single spell may not be casted over 3 times in a day. (a level 0 spell takes 1 energy as though as it was a level 1 spell.)
Windreavers does not get bonus spells from having high ability score.

Windrunner (Su)
Starting at first level the windreaver gains the ability to run on air.
while running, the windreaver can move through air of a length of his windrunner ability as though it was plain ground, also he gain this as bonus movement speed when running normally.
This does not allow to fly in any way, only to ignore pits and such (even if opened without the windreaver notice as a trap), you cannot run upwards, only in the same direction.
the windrunner ability starts at 5 ft. at level 1 and is increased in another 5 ft. every forth level.
If the windreaver has a fly speed add the windrunner speed into his fly speed.

Swift Maneuvers (Ex)
At second level, the windreaver gains +1 Dodge bonus to AC. this bonus increases to +2 at level 6, +3 at level 9, +4 at level 13, +5 at level 17, and to +6 at level 19.

Deflect Arrows
At third level, the windreaver gains the Deflect Arrows feat as a bonus feat.

Evasion (Ex)
At third level or higher if a windreaver makes a successful Reflex saving throw against an attack that normally deals half damage on a successful save, she instead takes no damage. Evasion can be used only if a windreaver is wearing light armor or no armor. A helpless windreaver does not gain the benefit of evasion.

Draconic Heritage
At fifth level the windreaver gains the draconic heritage feat with a color gray that has knowledge [arcane] as bonus skill increase and sonic as his energy type. if the "draconic legacy" feat will be taken he will add the windreaver 5 energy per day instead of adding spells.
if the windreaver already has the draconic heritage feat from another source he gains 5 energy per day instead.
You may take draconic feats as though as you are a sorcerer at your level.

Snatch Arrows
At seventh level, the windreaver gains the Snatch arrows bonus feat, also, the windreaver may deflect and snatch arrows even when his hand are full.

Improved Evasion (Ex)
At 9th level, a windreaverís evasion ability improves. She still takes no damage on a successful Reflex saving throw against attacks, but henceforth she takes only half damage on a failed save. A helpless windreaver does not gain the benefit of improved evasion.

Windwalk (Su)
At tenth level, the windreaver may travel through up to 5 ft. of solid matter as though as it was not there, this counts as a full-round action.

Improved Windwalk (Su)
At level forteen, the windreaver may travel through up to 10 ft. of solid matter as though as it was not there, this counts as a full-round action.

Screaming Strike (Su)
From level fifteen and on, all attacks made by the windreaver gain the Screaming enchantment (including unarmed attacks), if the weapon has the screaming enchantment the weapon gains +1 enchantment bonus instead.

Greater Windwalk (Su)
At level eighteen, the windreaver may travel through up to 15 ft. of solid matter as though as it was not there, this counts as a full-round action.
he could also travel through up to 5 ft. of solid matter as though as it was not there as a move action.


Well. this is my new run at a class.
any inbalances i should notice?
anything is wrong?

spell list is up (spoiler right under spellcasting), but not yet full.

1) I'm glad to see this class has a normal BAB
2) The wording on some of the abilities makes little sense (namely Draconic Heritage)
3) If this is a casting class like the bard with 3/4 BAB, 2 good saves, and all of those abilities, I'd say its overpowered a little, if not more so.

1-learned my lesson

2-Draconic Heritage is a feat from complete arcane. not my name.

3-actually. its the same saves and BAB as bard to the point. not a single difference there, and if you notice, most abilities here are the same thing that keeps growing, at the cost of bardic music/knowledge, Proficiency and such. so its hard to pinpoint unbalances for me.
if you can be a little more to-the-point it will be great. cuz "at general" is hard for me to think of my own creation.

You need to add the hit dice size, skills (points per level and class skills) and spell list

Erm.... why do I get the feeling that somehow people are using some concept ideas from my sigged Bladewind classes.... >.< except with more wind based abilities? Ah well. For Windrunning, the "run on air" part of the description is a little ambiguous and can be broken. Does he/she run on air, as in fly by running very fast to lift off the ground, or does it just end up ignoring terrain penalties by moving faster and sort of jumping kung fu ish type moving over the ground?

well. its not quite done, i am putting it to basic review before i put up the rest.

also, never seen the bladewind, and the "run on air" is like a jump. should have been more clear there.

in reference to what?

i would think in reference to the line on the table named Energy:smallwink:

yea. forgot i named it that.

read spellcasting, it is used as a "mana" style spellcasting resource.


also, added his hit die and skills. a bit off, but not anything game-breaking. (not like one out of four wizard's stuff isn't broken.)

also added partial spell list. (i'll add a few more at the 4,5,6 levels)
