    Big Game Hunter

    There is no hunting like the hunting of man, and those who have hunted armed men long enough and liked it, never care for anything else thereafter.
    --Ernest Hemingway

    A big game hunter lives to stalk, kill, and eat the most dangerous beasts the world (and perhaps the planes as well) has to offer.

    Adventures: Big game hunters are characterized by approaching adventure as a hobby.

    Characteristics: Big game hunters are gentleman adventurers, who specialize in long-range killing. They also excel at finding and tracking their prey, and wilderness survival.

    Alignment: Big game hunters may be any alignment, but as dispassionate killing is their main skill set, good ones are rare.

    Religion: Big game hunters may worship a god of hunting, or most often, none at all. Rarely, they worship nature gods or nature itself.

    Background: Big game hunters are often aged aristocrats who hunt as a hobby. Less well-off ones are rare, and may call themselves "poachers."

    Races: Humans are by far the most likely race to produce idle rich enthusiasts of sport hunting. Elves have all the requisite skills and abilities, but their personalities are so opposed to this behavior that there has never been one, though it is not technically impossible. Other races producing big game hunters is all but unheard of.

    Other Classes: Big game hunters can be very useful in stealth, scouting, or assassination situations. However, they clash in motivation with most other classes, and rangers find them especially abhorrent for the same reasons elves do, and their skills overlap a great deal, adding to their rivalry.

    Role: Scouting, tracking, and long-range killing.

    Adaptation: A big game hunter could be refluffed as a military sniper, a poacher, a professional hunter, or a replacement for the scout class if an aristocratic hunting enthusiast makes no sense in a given campaign.

    GAME RULE INFORMATION
    BIG GAME HUNTERS have the following game statistics.
    Abilities: Dexterity is by far the most important stat for a big game hunter. Constitution makes them a little more durable, but their hit dice is not poor and they can stay out of combat for the most part. Strength can help them get a little more damage with a composite bow, Intelligence helps with their skills, and charisma has very little to do with their role, but their aristocratic background gives them the opportunity to learn diplomacy if they choose. Wisdom helps mediate their poor will saves.
    Alignment: Any.
    Hit Die: d8
    Starting Age: As Wizard.
    Starting Gold: 10d4x10 gp.

    Class Features
    All of the following are class features of the BIG GAME HUNTER.

    Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: Big game hunters are proficient with light armor, bucklers, simple weapons, shortbows, longbows, composite shortbows, composite longbows, heavy crossbows, and light crossbows.

    Ranged Sneak Attack: Ranged sneak attack is identical to a rogue's sneak attack ability, except it does not function with melee attacks or ranged attacks made against adjacent opponents. Like sneak attack, it must be made within 30' to be effective, but as the big game hunter advances in level, he adds to the distance at which he can perform ranged sneak attacks.

    Consume Prey: The big game hunter absorbs power called animus by consuming the flesh of enemies he kills, and uses it to fuel special abilities called hunter's tricks. He only needs to consume a single bite (traditionally the heart); it's mostly a symbolic gesture. This requires a full-round action which provokes attacks of opportunity and a fortitude save based on the creature type and hit dice of the slain enemy. The big game hunter must have killed the creature himself, or he receives no benefit. When he successfully uses consume prey, the big game hunter receives 5 temporary hit points, and one animus point per hit dice of the consumed prey, however he can only hold one animus point per level of big game hunter. He can still gain temporary hit points when his animus pool is full. Temporary hit points gained this way fade at a rate of 1 per hour. If the big game hunter fails the fortitude save provoked by consuming his prey, he is sickened for one round per hit dice of the foe he attempted to consume, and receives no animus points or temporary hit points. Animus points are not gained in any way except by consuming prey, and they are not lost in any way except by being used.

    Adept Sniper: Normally, hiding after making a ranged attack incurs a -20 penalty. A big game hunter reduces this penalty by 1 per level of big game hunter.

    Hunter's Trick: Wherever it says "Hunter's Trick" on the class table, the big game hunter gains a special ability called a Hunter's Trick, chosen from the list at the end of the class description. When it says Hunter's Trick 1, the big game hunter may choose a single trick from the level 1 list. Where it says Hunter's Trick 2, he may choose either a single trick from the level 2 list, or two tricks from the level 1 list. When it says Hunter's Trick 3, he may choose 1, 2, or 3 tricks whose levels add up to 3, and so on. A big game hunter can spend his entire store of Animus points in one round if he wishes.

    Expert Marksman: A big game hunter of second level or higher adds double his dexterity bonus to ranged attacks, but the bonus from expert marksman can not exceed his levels of big game hunter (i.e. if his dexterity is 18 and he is level 2, he adds +4 as normal, then another +2 from expert marksman. At 4th level, he will add +4 as normal, and another +4 from expert marksman).

    Sniping:
    The big game hunter adds 5 feet to the range he can use ranged sneak attack at second level, and another 5 feet every even level. If he has another effect which multiplies or otherwise extends the range at which he can sneak attack, add the extra distance from sniping afterwards. Sniping only affects the distance the big game hunter can use ranged sneak attack; normal sneak attack is still subject to the normal distance limitations.

    Track:
    At second level, the big game hunter gains Track as a bonus feat.

    Woodland Stride: Starting at fourth level, a big game hunter may move through any sort of undergrowth (such as natural thorns, briars, overgrown areas, and similar terrain) at his normal speed and without taking damage or suffering any other impairment. However, thorns, briars, and overgrown areas that are enchanted or magically manipulated to impede motion still affect him.

    Swift Tracker:
    Beginning at sixth level, a big game hunter can move at his normal speed while following tracks without taking the normal -5 penalty. He takes only a -10 penalty (instead of the normal -20) when moving at up to twice normal speed while tracking.

    One Shot One Kill: At eighth level, a big game hunter can choose to make a single attack as a full-round action when he uses ranged sneak attack. If his attack hits, roll damage as normal (including ranged sneak attack damage). Then, roll ranged sneak attack damage again. If this number is higher than the target's remaining hit point total, the target dies instantly. If it is less than the target's current hit points, nothing happens.

    Trackless Step: Starting at tenth level, a big game hunter leaves no trail in natural surroundings and cannot be tracked. He may choose to leave a trail if so desired.

    Camouflage: A big game hunter of twelfth level or higher can use the Hide skill in any sort of natural terrain, even if the terrain doesn’t grant cover or concealment.

    Expert Sharpshooter: At fourteenth level, the big game hunter's bonus from Expert Marksman increases to 1.5x his dexterity bonus, rounded down. The total bonus he can receive is still limited by his levels in big game hunter.

    Reaper's Shot: At sixteenth level, the big game hunter's One Shot One Kill ability upgrades to the Reaper's Shot. The Reaper's Shot works just like One Shot One Kill, but adds double the big game hunter's ranged sneak attack damage to the initial damage.

    Hide in Plain Sight:
    While in any sort of natural terrain, a big game hunter of eighteenth level or higher can use the Hide skill even while being observed.

    Baleful Shot: At twentieth level, whenever a big game hunter modifies a ranged attack with any type of shot augment, that attack overcomes all hardness and damage reduction, including epic and -.

    Effect: You sense the presence of creatures of the types you've preyed upon.
    Cost: 2 Animus points

    This trick allows you to detect creatures of any species you've successfully used your consume prey ability on (note: this is not based on creature type.

    As a full-round action, you make an attack at your highest base attack bonus against each enemy in range of your attacks with ranged or thrown weapons. You must have enough ammunition or thrown weapons to make these attacks. You can attack no more enemies than your levels in big game hunter. Each shot can be affected by other hunter's tricks. You are treated as having the quick draw feat for the duration of this round. You may intersperse ranged weapon and thrown weapon attacks.


    Nondetection
    Trick Type: Special
    Action: Immediate
    Effect: Become aware of scrying attempts and choose whether or not they will affect you.

When you are made aware, you can choose to spend 2 animus points to cause the spell or effect to fail. This may or may not end the spell, depending on whether it was a general detect spell that could have detected you, or a specific spell aimed at you. In the case of a crystal ball, one use of Nondetection renders you unfindable for 24 hours, but only from that particular deivce.

If you miss the intended target, they get to save for half damage as well. You may also intentionally aim for an empty square (AC 10).

The increase to your threat range does not stack with any other spell, effect, or ability which increases threat range.

    --BIG GAME HUNTER FEATS--


    Favored Prey
    Prerequisites: Consume Prey class feature
    Benefits: Pick a creature you've used Consume Prey on. It must correspond to one of the categories for a ranger's favored enemy. Whenever you use Consume Prey on that creature, you gain an extra 5 temporary hit points and an extra animus point. In this case, having consumed a mind flayer makes you eligible to declare all aberrations your favored prey. However, consuming an elf will not allow you to declare all humanoids your favored prey, only elves. In all other abilities related to the prey that you have used Consume Prey on, it does not refer to creature type, but to “species.”
    Special: You may select this feat more than once. Each time you do, you select a new creature as your favored prey.


    Lick the Arrow
    Prerequisites: Consume Prey class feature, +1 BAB
    Benefits: You no longer provoke attacks of opportunity for using your Consume Prey ability, and you can do so as a swift action, or as a free action as part of a move action if you move through the space occupied by the corpse of your prey.

    Benefits: You gain a +4 bonus to saving throws versus the spell-like abilities of fey, and you may also spend an animus point to gain a +4 bonus to one save versus any mind-affecting spell, spell-like ability, or effect.


    Monster Hunter
    Prerequisites: Consume Prey class feature, Favored Prey (Monstrous Humanoid or Magical Beast)
    Benefits: You become invisible to Darkvision. Creatures with Darkvision are unable to see you unless they could also see you with normal vision.

    Planar Survivalist
    Prerequisites: Consume Prey class feature, Favored Prey (Outsider (Any) or Elemental)
    Benefits: You add Knowledge (The Planes) as a class skill. Whenever you use Consume Prey on an outsider or elemental, you do not need to eat, drink or sleep that day, and you only need to breathe once per hour for 24 hours. You may still eat, sleep, drink or breathe if it would benefit you.


    Man-eater
    Prerequisites: Consume Prey class feature, Favored Prey (Humanoid(Any))
    Benefits: When you use Consume Prey on a humanoid, you gain a +2 untyped bonus to whichever ability score was highest in the creature consumed. If it had two or more ability scores that were tied for the highest, determine randomly which one you get a bonus to. This bonus lasts for one hour per animus point gained from eating the creature, and stacks with itself.
