Special Traits

  • Assassinate. During its first turn, the hunter has advantage on attack rolls against any creature that hasn’t taken a turn. Any hit the hunter scores against a surprised creature is a critical hit.
  • Devastating Critical (1/Round). The hunter deals the maximum amount of damage possible when it scores a critical hit.
  • Enemy of Arcana. The hunter has advantage on Wisdom (Survival) checks to track arcane spellcasters, as well as on Intelligence checks to recall information about them, and its weapon attacks deal an extra 1d6 damage against them.
  • Natural Explorer: Forest. When the hunter makes an Intelligence or Wisdom check related to the forest, its proficiency bonus (+3) is doubled if it is using a skill that its proficient in. While traveling for an hour or more in its favored terrain, the hunter’s group isn’t slowed by difficult terrain and can’t become lost except by magical means. If traveling alone in a forest, the hunter can move stealthily at a normal pace. In addition, while tracking other creatures in a forest, the hunter also learns their exact number, their sizes, and how long ago they passed through the area.
  • Superior Critical. The hunter’s weapon attacks score a critical hit on a roll of 18–20.

Actions

  • Scimitar. Melee Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, reach 5 ft., one target. Hit: 8 (1d6+5) slashing damage.
  • Longbow. Ranged Weapon Attack: +8 to hit, range 150/600 ft., one target. Hit: 9 (1d8+5) piercing damage.
