Treant Paragon Class

by Jamie Baty

Treant paragons have the following game statistics.
Abilities: Treant paragons value the care of the forest, and the vast expanse of natural knowledge their kind possesses. Strength is an important ability for a treant paragon, as violence sometimes is needed to protect the woodlands. Treant paragons do not neglect Intelligence and Wisdom, as those abilities tie into the paragon's pursuit of knowledge. Many treant paragons act as woodland sages and lore-keepers, and will place importance upon their Charisma.
Alignment: Any, although predominantly neutral good.
Hit Die: d8.

Class Skills
The treant paragon's class skills (and the key ability for each skill) are Craft (Int), Hide (Dex), Intimidate (Cha), Knowledge (nature) (Int), Listen (Wis), Profession (Wis), Sense Motive (Wis), Spot (Wis) and Survival (Wis).
Skill Points at Each Level: 4 + Int modifier.

Class Features
All of the following are class features of the centaur paragon class.
Weapon and Armour Proficiency: Treant paragons do not gain any weapon or armour proficiencies.

Forest Sage: Treant paragons receive as a bonus feat Skill Focus for any one Knowledge skill they possess ranks in. They receive a +2 bonus to all Knowledge (Nature) skill checks.

Brew Potion (Ex): At 2nd level, a treant paragon gains the Brew Potion feat as a bonus feat. It may use this feat to create potions based on 3rd level or lower cleric or druid spells using natural ingredients found within the woodlands. It uses its HD as its caster level, and it never has to pay the XP cost associated with potion creation, although it must have the required gp amount of raw materials (freely available in any woodlands and forests).

Ability Boost (Ex): At 3rd level, a treant paragon's Wisdom score increases by 2 points.
