Mark Prey Level: 1

At 1st level, you can use a bonus action to mark a creature you can see within 90 feet of you. You deal an extra 1d4 damage to your prey whenever you hit it with a weapon attack and you have advantage on any Wisdom (Perception) or Wisdom (Survival) check you make to find it.

At 5th level your damage die against your prey turns into a d6. At 11th level, it turns into a d8. At 17th level, it turns into a d10.

Natural Explorer Level: 1

  • Your group can’t become lost except by magical means.

  • You have advantage on Wisdom (Perception) to notice any volatile changes in the environment such as future bad weather, natural disasters, or large non-magical disturbances
  • Difficult terrain doesn’t slow your group’s travel.
  • If you are travelling alone, you can move stealthily at a normal pace.
  • While tracking other creatures, you also learn their exact number, their sizes, and how long ago they passed through the area.

Exposure Level: 2

At 2nd Level, you have experienced several life threatening encounters on your travels. You gain advantage on Constitution saving throws against non-magical effects. Additionally, you innately know what the source of the Constitution saving throw is.

The second part of this feature was included so that the ranger could not only resist elements and poisons, but know what is causing the saving throw. For instance: The ranger would know if the blizzards saving through was a natural blizzard or a sign of a white dragons lair.

This feature is fine without the ability to know the source of the saving throw, if removing it would be preferred by the DM. It is mainly there to add more flavor as a survivalist.

Fighting Style Level: 2

Survival Instincts Level: 10

Starting at 10th level, your natural instincts have been heightened enough that you become aware of danger before anyone else. When you roll initiative you gain a special turn that takes place before other creatures can act. On this turn you can use your action to take the Dash, Disengage, Dodge or Hide action only.

If more than one creature in an encounter has this feature, they all act first in order of initiative, then the regular initiative order begins.

If you would normally be surprised at the start of an encounter, you are not surprised, but your action in the surprise round can only be the Dash, Disengage, Dodge or Hide action.

First Aid Level: 13

At 13th level, you have learned how to mend wounds and illnesses while traversing the wilderness with minimal supplies. When you take a short rest you can heal yourself or another willing creature by caring for its wounds.

After using this feature you must complete a short rest before you can use it again.

Feral Senses Level: 17

At 17th level, you gain preternatural senses that help you fight creatures you can’t see. When you attack a creature you can’t see, your inability to see it doesn’t impose disadvantage on your attack rolls against it. In addition, invisible creatures do not gain advantage on attack rolls against you due to being invisible.

Survivor's Talent Level: 18

At 18th level, you have become toughened from the environment and the dangers that you face in the wilds. At the beginning of your turn, you may choose to gain temporary hit points equal to your Constitution modifier (minimum of 1) as long as you are not incapacitated.

The beast master is a path for those who form deep, meaningful connections with a companion animal. This connection is usually formed through happenstance, not from a hunt. Saving the animal from a grizzly fate, working together for a mutual goal, sharing a dinner out in the wilds. The ranger must show compassion and kindness to the animal, and over time the bond if formed. The animal is the one who must open themselves up to the bond, and no animal can be forced into the bond.

Companion’s Bond Level: 3

At 3rd level you are able to tame a beast as a companion, forming a powerful bond between you and that beast for as long as you both will live. This bond is normally formed by the beast and you connecting on a deep level, such as saving the beast’s life, or aiding the beast on it’s own important journey. After such a task, the beast may want to journey with you, thus willing the bond. This bond changes the creature you bond with on a very fundamental level, changing what their gameplay statistics are, and possibly what sort of actions or features they possess. In this process, the companion begins to grow alongside you.

While your companion is bonded to you, you can communicate with your companion by speaking. Your companion will understand what you say and speak to them, as long as the companion could reasonably understand the content of the message (You can tell a dog that the food is poison, for instance, but it wouldn’t understand you telling them about economy).

This bond is unbreakable, even in death. So long as either you or your companion are alive, the bond remains, preventing you or the companion from forming a bond with any other creature. This depth of a bond has multiple potent effects, listed here:

  • You can bring your companion back to life as long as you have a part of its body. You can perform a ritual, requiring 100gp worth of herbs, oils and wood which must burn the body of your companion over the course of 8 hours, until the fire subsides and your companion raises from the ashes.
  • As long as your companion is alive, a part of you remains within them even in your death. A creature with True Sight would see a ghostly apparition of you walking beside your companion. Further, your companion can be the target of the following spells, and they will effect your character as if they were casted upon your fully intact corpse: Speak with Dead, Raise Dead, Resurrection, True Resurrection.

Your companion has it’s own level, which is always equal to your ranger level. Your companion has it’s own hit dice which it can expend to recover, and gains hit points as it levels. In addition, your companion has it’s own proficiency based on its level. Your companions proficiency applies to any saving throws or skills which it is proficient with, attack rolls with it’s attacks, and to your companion’s Armor Class.

Whenever you gain the Ability Score Improvement class feature through the ranger class, your companion’s abilities also improve. Your companion can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or it can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, your companion can’t increase an ability score above 20 using this feature unless its description specifies otherwise.

Your companion rolls it’s own initiative and will act as you command it to, or what it believes to be the best if it is unable to see or hear you. Your companion acquires the same alignment as you have, and has the same ideals and beliefs. Unless instructed otherwise, your survival is the main priority of your companion, and it will attempt to keep you alive above all else.

To determine the statistics and features that your companion has, you need to determine three things about your companion. What type of beast is it, what size is it, and what is the beasts temperament. These answers should best match the type of companion that you have, and isn’t meant to morph or change the companion (For instance, if you bond with a Panther, you shouldn’t choose the Venomous temperament).

You can see what statistics or features your companion gains based on these choices at the end of this section. Below are some examples of possible animals and the choices that would match well.

  • Bear. Large Mammal, with the Guardian or Brutish temperament.
  • Octopus. Small Fish, with the Slippery temperament.
  • Spider. Small, Medium, or Large Insect, with the Ambusher or Venomous temperament.
  • Giant Owl. Large Avian, with the Ambusher temperament.
  • Bat. Small Mammal, with the Airborne temperament.

  • Eagle. Small or Medium Avian, with the Charger temperament.

An excellent substitute for the PHB Ranger.The power creep may be a little strong, but this is something easily tweaked on a game to game basis as the Predator Die is simple enough and built into the chassis of the class.
