  • Harper Scouts are restricted from the Shadow Legion faction only because Shadow Legion can no longer have neutral aligned characters.
  • Harper Scouts can only go up to level 5, therefore may not become epic.
  • Although Harper Scouts cannot become epic, they can select from the epic bonus feat list if level 1 or 5 of Harper Scout are selected during an epic level.
  • If you take your first or fifth level of Harper Scout during a non-epic level, you may choose to take Curse Song instead of Favored Enemy as a bonus feat, but Curse Song won't do anything without Perform and at least one Bard level.

NeverSummer Modifications

Improvements to Harper Scout prestige class:

  • Cat's Grace and Eagle's Splender are now empowered.
  • Sleep DC is now 3/4 Harper's character level + CHA modifier (or WIS if higher). Works on targets regardless of their hit die.
  • Invisibility behaves like Improved Invisibility at character level 20+.
  • Tymora's Smile gives +1 to Spot, Listen, Taunt, and bludgeoning damage per 5 character levels versus favored enemies (+8 max) plus half that in dodge AC versus favored enemies (+4 max). Harper Scouts that are Rangers only receive half this bonus (+4 maximum Spot, Listen, Taunt, and bludgeoning damage and +2 dodge AC) versus their favored enemies. Feat is now a free action. This stacks with the bonuses from Favored Enemy feats and Bane of Enemies. Tymora's Smile still gives a +2 to all saves. Duration is permanent.
