The savage technologist has all the class abilities of the barbarian, except as noted below.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency
A savage technologist is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, all firearms, light armor, and shields (except tower shields).
Technic Rage (Ex)
While in a rage, a barbarian gains a +2 bonus on attack rolls, damage rolls, Armor Class, and to both Reflex and Will saving throws. This bonus increases to +3 when she gains greater rage and +4 when she gains mighty rage. When using a technic rage, an savage technologist takes no penalties to AC. This ability alters rage.
Sword and Gun (Ex)
At 2nd level, when a raging savage technologist wields a one-handed firearm in one hand and a light or one-handed melee weapon in the other, she can make ranged attacks with the firearm without provoking attacks of opportunity. She also gains the benefits of the Two-Weapon Fighting feat, but only if all attacks are made with those weapons. This ability replaces uncanny dodge.
Primal Magnetism (Ex)
At 3rd level, a savage technologist adds her Strength modifier on Diplomacy checks when interacting with tribal cultures. She can expend 2 rounds of rage (even if not raging) to add a bonus equal to 1/2 his barbarian level on a Diplomacy check.
Crack Shot (Ex)
At 5th level, a savage technologist adds her Dexterity modifier to her damage rolls when making ranged attacks with a firearm while raging. This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.
