Horizon Walker - Ranger Archetype Option

Suggested Price $1.97

The archetype of the Horizon Walker is a new Ranger archetype available at 3rd level. The Horizon Walker devotes herself to a life of exploration, mapping out the myriad environments of the Prime and beyond. As you follow this archetype, you will develop new magical abilities from your existing favoured terrain(s) as you form a magical bond with the land you travel.

Inspired by the Horizon Walker prestige class from editions past. Artwork courtesy of wpclipart. Credit to Tom Iszatt for his help in finalising the Power of the Land feature.

Change Log:


  1. Clarified Terrain Mastery and other features to explicity link to the Ranger's Natural Explorer feature.
  2. Limitted "Feywild" Planar Terrain Mastery feature to have a limitted number of uses on its beguiling influence.
  3. Rephrased "Astral" Planar Terrain Mastery feature to prevent attempting to simultaneously telepathically contact multiple entities.

V.2 also corrects some minor spelling errors found in the original version.

I just have a question to clarify the "Terrain Mastery" feature - is the feature specifying you can pick a number of traits equal to your number of favored terrains, is it specifying for each favored terrain you can pick a trait and have it apply to that favored terrain, or it is specifying that you must select the traits that correspond to your favored terrains and apply those traits to yourself and/or those terrains?

I'm sorry if the answer is obvious, the wording is just a little too confusing for me to figure out exactly how that feature applies.

Thank you for your feedback!

My apologies if the wording was not clear - I will see about clarifying that at the first opportunity I can.

In terms of mechanics, I intended that the Terrain Mastery was "activated" by existing Favoured Terrains. In other words, the Ranger has a given favoured terrain already from their Natural Explorer feature, and as such, gains an additional ability based upon that terrain.

e.g. Suppose a Ranger had, at 2nd level, chosen the Arctic favoured terrain, and at 6th level, chosen the Coast. At 7th level, that Ranger's Terrain Mastery would grant them bonuses for Arctic and Coast - they would have resistance to cold damage, a swimming speed equal to their walking speed, and could breath air and water.

These abilities apply whether or not the Ranger is currently in their favoured terrain: the abilities (as with the 3.5e Horizon Walker) are developed by a knowledge of, and magical connection to, the workings of that land, which...See more

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
