Class Features

All starting gold, skill points, class skills, hit dice, and class features all retained from base class, Ranger, unless noted.

Wild Empathy: A planar ranger takes no penalty on wild empathy checks made to influence magical beasts with the celestial or fiendish templates. However, he takes a —4 penalty when using this ability against animals.

Animal Companion: A nonevil planar ranger may have a celestial version of a normal animal as his animal companion. A nongood ranger may have a fiendish version of a normal animal as his animal companion.

Spellcasting: A planar ranger's spellcasting ability is largely unchanged from that of the standard ranger, with one exception: Any ranger spell that normally affects animals also affects celestial or fiendish versions of animals when cast by a planar ranger.


Class Skills: Eliminate Knowledge (nature) and Knowledge (dungeoneering) from the ranger's class skill list.

Add Knowledge (the planes) and Speak Language (Abyssal, Aquan, Auran, Celestial, Ignan, Infernal, Terran only) to the class skill list.
