Specialties: when a character becomes a specialist they choose one of three specialties which diversify the specialists from other classes. The Specialties are shadow-walking, Travel, and Battle. Depending on which they choose, their abilities will develop very differently. The Shadow-Walking specialist specializes in striking at the most opportune moment. The Traveling Opportunist specializes in knowing the lay of the land, getting the upper hand in most situations where terrain is an issue. Battling Specialists specialize in fighting up close and personal.
bonus Feat (Ex): A Specialist at 1st, 4th, 8th, 12th, 16th, and 20th level gains an additional bonus feat. They pull their bonus feats from the Fighter bonus feat list. A Specialist's level counts as a fighter level when taking feats that require levels in fighter.
skill focus (Ex): A specialist at 2nd, 6th, 10th, 14th, and 18th levels gains the Skill focus Feat. They cannot use the skill focus feat on the same skill twice.

Nimble Strength: Shadow-walking Specialty. The Specialist uses her Dexterity modifier in place of her Strength modifier on all attack rolls, and Skill checks where Strength is the modifying ability. Armor check penalties still apply when necessary.
Grace and guile: Travel Specialty. The Specialist adds their Wisdom or charisma modifier, whichever is higher, to their AC. They lose this bonus when they are flat-footed or helpless.
Wisdom from Power: Battle specialty. the specialist substitutes his Strength modifier for his Wisdom modifier for all Skill Checks, and saves where wisdom is the Modifying ability. this does not apply to skills that are not class skills, unless he has more than 5 ranks in that skill.
