Tide Warden - A Ranger Archetype


“You can't stop the wave ...... but you can learn to surf.” - Jon Kabat-Zinn

The Tide Wardens in an archetype for rangers that like to weave in and out of the fray and still be able to fluidly adapt to change circumstances on the battlefield. While the Tide Wardens are perfect for aquatic campaigns, they are equally as capable out of water… in deserts even!

Tide Wardens are what stands between civilization and the awesome might of the sea. Water is the element of change and they have learned to respect and harness its power to protect those under their charge.

Included in this product are:

  1. Tide Warden ranger archetype
  2. New feat: Tide Hunter
  3. Four new magic items: Conch of Fish Command, Helm of Water Breathing, Net of Mending and Trident of the Tides
  4. Ability to channel your inner Bruce Lee — empty your mind, be formless, shapeless, like water. Be water my friend!
Shifting Tides: By 7th level, you have learned to go with the flow and is able to turn a miss into another strike. Once on each of your turns when you miss with a weapon attack, you can make another weapon attack as part of the same action to another target within range. You can do so a number of times equal to your Wisdom modifier (minimum of once), and you regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest. Helm of Water Breathing. While wearing this helm, any creature that can breathe only underwater is able to breathe on land and can communicate normally. If a creature tthat cannot breathe underwater wears this helm, they begin to suffocate.

While you are here, you can test drive the Tide Warden archetype in an aquatic setting in my one shot adventure Shore Leave. If you want to see how it performs outside any bodies of water, Tales From The Frozen North contains 10 encounters for you try it out!

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.
