The Genius Guide to the Talented Fighter
The Genius Guide to the Talented Fighter rewrites the classic fighter class to use talents instead of static class abilities alternating with bonus feats. Rather than require all fighters be brave and balance their efforts between armor and weapon bonuses, each fighter can custom-fit the classes abilities to match a player's specific concept. This increased flexibility allows the fighter to be the default combat-oriented character without limiting it to just one or two styles of fighting. And like a rogue, a fighter character can pick and choose from a range of similarly-powered abilities appropriate for the fighter's role without making the class overpowered. The talented fighter still fills the same role in the party, but can customize his combat style and abilities to fill a much broader range of concepts.
