Hit Die: d8.
The ghost tamer has all the mediums class features, except as follows
Weapon and Armor Proficiency
Ghost tamers are proficient with all simple weapons. They are not proficient in any armor or shields.
Ghost Armor (Su)
A character with this ability can project a powerful protective aura that functions as armor and becomes an expert at using bracers of armor. This aura is force armor, and protects against incorporeal touch attacks. It can be activated at will as a swift action, and the protection stays up until deactivated or as long as the user is conscious. At class level 4, this armor can be used alongside bracers of armor, with stacking benefits. It does not otherwise stack with armor, either normal or force. It can be affected by armor-enhancing effects like magic vestment, but such enhancements do not stack with braces or armor. This counts as heavy armor to abilities that require or work with armor and suffers a 25% chance of arcane spell failure. It provides an armor bonus of +5.
The armor created by ghost tamers looks like a manifestation of their channeled spirit, displaying a mix of the spirit's and medium's aura colors.
Ghost Touch (Su)
At 2nd level, any weapon the ghost tamer wields gains the ghost touch property while wielded. Weapons fired, thrown, or dropped lose the property at the end of the ghost tamer’s turn. This replaces shared seance.
Ghost Army (Su)
At 18th level, any weapon or armor used by an ally within 60 ft. of the ghost tamer gains the ghost touch property while wielded. Missile weapons imbue this ability on their ammunition Items fired, thrown, or dropped lose the property at the end of the wielder's turn. This replaces spacious soul.
