Warrior of the Word

Despite the study required to master Foundation, not all of its Speakers forgo martial pursuits. Those who seek mastery of the art of war alongside Creation can join a sacred order known as Warriors of the Word.

Body of the Warrior: A Warrior of the Word has a base attack bonus equal to 3/4 their Speaker level instead of half their Speaker level. You add this value to any other base attack bonus gained from other classes or racial Hit Dice as normal. Additionally, a Warrior of the Word uses d8s instead of d6s when rolling for Speaker Hit Dice. This ability alters base attack bonus and hit dice.

Training of the Warrior: A Warrior of the Word is proficient with all simple and martial weapons.

Warriors of the Word are also proficient with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields). This ability replaces weapon and armor proficiencies.

Diminished Speaking: A Warrior of the Word treats their Speaker level as six lower (minimum one) for determining caster level, DC, and meeting prerequisites of Words of Foundation.

Bonus Combat Feats: A Warrior of the Word gains a bonus combat feat at 5th level, and an additional combat feat every five levels thereafter. This ability replaces Modifying Words.
