Wild Traveler (3.5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
A adventure-like traveler who hones his skills of no-weapon fighting.
Making a Wild Traveler
His strength is close combat, where he calls upon his soul to release mental energy, which makes him stay in control and strike critically in even the toughest situations. His weakness is ranged combat.
Abilities: Dexterity is important, because his AC is low since his proficiencies don't allow him to use armor or shields, and because he uses his Dexterity instead of his Strength to determine unarmed damage. Strength might also be a good idea, because it allows him to reach the most difficult places. Furthermore, Intelligence and Wisdom are good choices, because they represent his important class skills.
Races: Any, although few wild travelers are dwarves. The race most likely to become wild travelers are elves.
Starting Gold: 1d4 gp.
Starting Age: Varies much.

Playing a wild traveler
Religion: Usually none, but the preffered is Obad-Hai.
Other Classes: None special, except for the ranger. The wild traveler and the ranger tend to work out good, because of both's love of nature and the front-back working fighting.
Combat: The typical role in combat for the wild traveler is frontliner and scout, usually because of the wild travelers speed and fighting possibilities.
Advancement: The wild traveler usually don't multiclass, because of the weapon proficiencies. But if the wild traveler chooses to keep his wild traver weapon proficiencies at any other class, he usually chooses ranger or monk, because of these classes class features like track and feather fall. The monk is an excellent choice, because she has many skills that the wild traveler has, and (example:) the AC + the AC at monk 5 and wild traveler 5, is 3 and a good bonus in 10, thinking of all the other class features of the two characters.
