Nature's Knave (3.5e Prestige Class)
From D&D Wiki
|“||Nature's touch can be subtle and unseen.||”|
Some druids spellcast and heal, while others act as avengers of nature. Some on the other hand combine stealth and cleverness while turning the environment to their advantage; such types are Nature's Knaves. Nature's Knaves can act as sappers, scouts, guerillas or robbers (for natural settings). They use some aspects of the civilized world to nature's advantage, while natural magic comes to their own advantage.
Druids who wish to pursue a more skill and ingenuity based path, or those who do not are less interested in combat than rangers would benefit from this prestige class. The entry requirements generally dictate both druid and rogue levels, though there may be other paths to enter.

<-fluff about class features; class features should be listed in the order which they are gained. Abilities gained at the same level should be listed alphabetically->. All of the following are class features of the <-class name->.
Spellcasting: At every 2nd level, you gain new spells per day and an increase in caster level (and spells known, if applicable) as if you had also gained a level in a spellcasting class to which you belonged before adding the prestige class level. If you had more than one divine spellcasting class before becoming a Nature's Knave, you must decide to which class to add each level for the purpose of determining spells per day, caster level, and spells known.
Spells: To cast a particular spell, you must have a Wisdom score of at least 10 + the spell's level. Your bonus spells are based on your Wisdom. Saves to avoid the effects of your spells have a DC of 10 + the spell's level + your <-abbreviated ability-> bonus (if any).
A Nature's Knave who ceases to revere nature or acts in a way that is against the interests of nature, or changes to a prohibited alignment loses spellcasting capabilities (extra levels) and wildshaping abilities gained from the prestige class (the base class that granted the entry requirements may be affected also). He cannot gain additional levels as a Nature's Knave until he atones (see the atonement spell description).
