    Weapon and Armor Proficiency:The Monster Hunter is not proficient in any Weapons, Armors or Shields.


    Main class features

    Crafter's Affinity: A first level Monster Hunter has a natural proficiency with any gear they craft. As long as they practice with the weapon or armor for at least 24 hours. This proficiency only works on individual items, instead of item types. The Monster Hunter also gains Weapon Focus with any weapon they craft.

    Monstrous crafting: A monster hunter has the ability to craft superior gear through the remains of mundane and magical creatures. At first level they may craft Masterwork equipment as well as Every four levels they may add a +1 enhancement bonus to their crafted items with a DC +5/ enhancement bonus. (example, level 8 they may make weapons of +2 enhancement, lvl 12 +3, lvl16 +4, etc)Allowing them to craft magic items that are treated exactly as such for the purpose of attacking and dealing damage. These items do not glow and are not magical in any way, as such they still retain all properties while in an anti-magic zone.

    Hunter's Stamina: A monster hunter has gained improved endurance and stamina due to his time in the wilderness, granting him a Natural Armor bonus of +2 that increases by +1 at every third level, immunity to poisons and non-magical/non-supernatural diseases, as well as immunity to fatigue, and exhaustion.

    Monstrous prowess(low):Starting at level 3 a Monster hunter learns that crafting from the beasts of the world May give certain benefits depending on the creature. Whenever a creature is made into a usable gear they may imbue their natural instincts within it. While being wielded by the Monster hunter they gain a +1 bonus to all skills that the creature considers natural.(swimming for aquatic, hide for snakes, etc…)

    While making equipment the monster hunter is able to draw a single natural abilities of creatures into the items they crafts. The ability placement in the item must make sense: i.e. regeneration must be placed on armor, attacks must be placed in weapons, etc. A Monster hunter may only use Monstrous prowess from creatures of Cr equal to their level+wis mod. Imbuing an ability into gear adds a +1 dc to the weapon per Cr of the creature

    Hunter's Instinct: A monster hunter's instincts guide them, making them more perceptive and reactive to the world around them. Starting at level 4 they gain a +4 to initiative checks, and you are always aware during surprise rounds. This also gives the profound ability to track the monsters they fight. Giving them the scent ability with a +4 bonus to all Listen, spot, and track checks.

    Crafting Mastery: Starting at level 5 A Monster hunter gains a bonus to weapon, armor, and bow making crafting skills. This bonus is equal to the current level of Monster hunter they are. From now on, a Monster hunter may craft wherever they are as long as they have the basic tools to craft with.

    Hunter Arts: Starting at level 6 a Monster hunter may begin to learn and practice Hunter art Maneuvers. A Monster hunter learns knows all Hunter arts available to them but can only prepare a total of their level divided by three at a time. They may only prepare what level Maneuver their level allows. A one hour rest is needed to prepare their Maneuvers for the day as well as to choose their Maneuvers.

    Guzzler
    The stomach of a Monster Hunter has gorged on many ingredients both unique and special in their own way. Because of this they have gained the ability to consume and fully ingest potions to further bring their effects upon the Monster Hunter. Starting at level 7 the Monster Hunter may take a stance and fully consume an entire potion as a full round action. This gives the effect of doubling the duration of the potion or doubling the healing effect of the potion.

    Monstrous prowess(high): Starting at level 9 whenever a Monster hunter crafts gear from a creature they may add a +2 bonus instead of a +1 for every piece of equipment. As well as the monster hunter is able to imbue a supernatural or spell-like power the creature is able to use into their equipment.

    expert crafter Affinity: Starting at level 10 A monster Hunter Gains an additional +5 to all crafting checks as well as gains improved weapon focus for all weapons they make.

    Monstrous prowess(Great): Starting at level 15 A monster Hunter may imbue a second ability from the creature into their weapon instead of one. As well as Gaining a +3 bonus to skills instead of a +2.

    Master crafter affinity: Starting at level 19 a Monster hunter has become a master in all forms of monstrous crafting. They now perform all crafts twice as fast as normal and receive weapon specialization with all weapons they create.

    Added a more Monster hunter game flavor by adding the Guzzler ability. Not adding to much power to the overall class but giving a good booster ability if they have friends that can make potions or the money to afford one.
