Aspect Warrior (Summoner/Monk)

It is not surprising that most summoners possess an affinity for conjuration magic. However, there are a select few who direct their passion in a completely new direction. By training in the ascetic arts, a summoner retrains his mind in such a way as to allow him to tap an alternate source of power, a reservoir of mystic energy that allows him to employ the evolutions of his eidolon to alter or increase his skills in battle. Through strict mental discipline, the aspect warrior can bring his eidolons into existence by sheer force of will, forming it from the very energies that that fuel his mystic abilities. While aspect warriors are often misidentified as common summoners, those who do so quickly realize their mistake as the claws or teeth of these well disciplined warriors find their mark.

Bonus Skills and Ranks: The aspect warrior selects three monk skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal summoner class skills. The aspect warrior gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 2 + Int modifier.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The aspect warrior is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the handaxe, kama, nunchaku, sai, short sword, shuriken, siangham, and temple sword*. The aspect warrior is not proficient with any armor or shields. When wearing armor, using a shield, or carrying a medium or heavy load, the aspect warrior loses his AC bonus and his fast movement abilities. (*Advanced Player’s Guide)

AC Bonus (Ex): When unarmored and unencumbered, the aspect warrior adds his charisma bonus (if any) to his AC and his CMD. This bonus to AC applies even against touch attacks or when the aspect warrior is flat-footed. He loses this bonus when he is immobilized or helpless, when he wears any armor, when he carries a shield, or when he carries a medium or heavy load. This ability, evasion, fast movement, and Multiattack replace the summoner’s spellcasting ability.
