Lunar Guardian

When man goes to sleep in its cities, nature is still at work, always without rest. Some druids strive to protect their homes while their brethren sleep, learning the ways of the Lunar Guardians to better use the cover of night to their advantage.


A lunar guardian’s time spent in darkness makes her spell list different from a normal druid. A lunar guardian adds the following spells to her spell list, at the indicated levels:

A lunar guardian removes all spells with the light descriptor from her spell list. If using a spell trigger or spell completion item to cast a spell from the druid spell list with the light descriptor, she must use Use Magic Device to do so.

This modifies the druid’s spellcasting.

Nature Bond (Ex)

A lunar guardian that chooses an animal companion must choose a wolf, snake, or a nocturnal animal (such as an owl or bat, subject to GM discretion). A lunar guardian that takes a domain must choose the Darkness domain or one of its subdomains.

This alters the nature bond ability.

Night Sight (Ex)

At 2nd level, a lunar guardian gains low-light vision. If she already has low-light vision, she gains darkvision with a range of 30 feet. If she already has darkvision, the range of her darkvision is increased by 30 feet.

This ability replaces woodland stride.

Resist Darkness (Ex)

At 4th level, the lunar guardian gains a +4 bonus on saving throws against spells with the [light], [darkness], or [shadow descriptor] or spells of the shadow subschool.

This ability replaces resist nature’s lure.

Disease Immunity (Ex)

Starting at 9th level, a lunar guardian becomes immune to diseases.

This ability replaces venom immunity.

Eyes of the Moon (Su)

At 13th level, a lunar guardian gains the see in darkness ability, allowing her to see perfectly to any distance in darkness, including supernatural darkness created by effects like deeper darkness.

This ability replaces a thousand faces.
