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

    Weapon and Armor Proficiency
    Avatars are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient with any type of armor or shield.

    Channel Archetype (Su)
    Avatars have the ability, using sheer force of personality, to act in any sort of role. Any number of times per day, as a standard action, an avatar may channel a single archetype that he has access to. Avatars have access to every archetype they are high enough level to use. Whenever the avatar channels an archetype, he replaces the archetype he was currently channeling with the new one. If an archetype specifies that an ability may only be used a number of times over a given period, that number remains even if the avatar stops channeling the archetype and returns to it. For example, if the avatar were to channel the undead hunter and spend two turn attempts, he would not regain those turn attempts even if he switched away and back to the undead hunter; he would only regain them when he rested for eight hours. Unless specified otherwise, any spell-like abilities granted by an archetype are cast as if the avatar was a caster of equal level to his avatar levels, and all of the save DC's from archetype granted spell-like abilities are Charisma based.

    Archetype Focus
    At 2nd level, and every even avatar level thereafter, an avatar can pick any single archetype, including one he might not yet have access to. He unlocks the Focus benefit of the archetype whenever he channels that archetype from now on. At 3rd level and every odd level thereafter, he may retrain one of his focused archetypes to focus another archetype, losing access to the previous focus benefit but gaining access to a new focus benefit.

    Double Archetype
    At 6th level, the avatar gains the ability to channel two archetypes at once, gaining the benefits of both. In addition, he may now channel a single archetype as a move action instead of a standard, replacing one of the two he is currently channeling (if he is channeling two at the time). He may also use a standard action to channel two archetypes, replacing both of the archetypes he is currently channeling, if any.

    Triple Archetype
    At 13th level, the avatar gains the ability to channel three archetypes at once, gaining the benefits of all of them. He may channel a single archetype as a swift action, replacing one he is currently using (if all his archetype slots are filled), channel two as a move action, replacing two, or channel three with a standard, replacing three.

    Extra Focus [General]

    Benefit
    You gain the focus benefit of a single archetype of your choice when channeling that archetype.

    Special
    You may take Extra Focus multiple times. Every time you take Extra Focus, it applies to a different archetype.

    ___________

    The idea with this class was to make a fairly unique "I channel the forces of story" warrior at Tier 1. Currently, it would need far more in the way of options to approach that, so any additional archetype suggestions (or criticisms) would be appreciated.
