The bonded warrior is an archetype for the summoner class from the pathfinder system. The idea behind it is to change the summoner from being a sort of support caster that focuses on buffing his eidolon or summoning other nasty things into a more martial class that focuses on turning both the summoner and his eidolon into fierce warriors that work very well together.

It is still a work in progress, but I wanted to post it here and get some feedback before I progress much further. In particular, I wanted to figure out how exactly to replace the summoner's spells without making the archetype too useless or broken. I thought about using something similar to the hunter's tricks that the ranger gets from the skirmisher archetype (I called them warrior's tactics), but I haven't yet been able to design any.

Any other feedback or advice would be greatly appreciated.
