Some hunters prefer a more insightful approach to learning magic; studying it and understanding how and why it works. These hunters learn a few areas of magic really well, instead of treating it as a set of unrelated tools they don’t truly understand.
The master of bestial power may combine spheres and talents to create magical effects. The sphere hunter is considered a Mid-Caster. (Note: All casters gain 2 bonus talents and a casting tradition the first time they gain the casting class feature.)
This alters the spells class feature.
The master of bestial power gains a small reservoir of energy they can call on to create truly wondrous effects, called a spell pool. This pool contains a number of spell points equal to their class level + their casting ability modifier. This pool replenishes once per day after roughly 8 hours of rest.
A master of bestial power gains 3/4ths of a magic talent every level (the same progression as they gain caster levels).
Conjured Companion (Ex)
At 1st level, the master of bestial power may choose to not receive an animal companion, and to instead gain the Conjuration sphere as a free bonus talent. They gain an additional talent from that sphere at 5th, 9th, 13th, and 17th level, and use their class level as their caster level. This stacks with other sources normally. The conjured companion gains all the abilities that would be granted to the legendary hunter’s animal companion. If the legendary hunter gains more than one companion, one must be chosen to be the animal companion.
This alters animal companion, but does not make the master of bestial might incompatible with other archetypes that alter the animal companion feature.
Master’s Gift (Ex)
As long as their animal companion is within line of sight, the master of bestial power may treat them as being in range of any of their sphere abilities that target one creature. In addition, whenever the master of bestial power uses such an ability on themself, they may spend a spell point as a free action to have it affect their animal companion as well.
