    New class features for the fighter class:

    Man of the people (Ex)
    Fighter gains a bonus on Knowledge (local) checks equal to half her level (minimum 1).

    Antagonize (Ex)
    At 1st level, a fighter can make Intimidate checks to make creatures respond to him with hostility. Antagonizing a creature is a free action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity, can be taken during his turn, and has a DC equal to 10 + the target’s Hit Dice + the target’s Wisdom modifier. The fighter can not make this check against a creature that does not understand him or has an Intelligence score of 3 or lower. The fighter gains an insight bonus on the Intimidate check equal to his Strength bonus.

    If the check is successful, the creature flies into a rage. On its next turn, the target must attempt to make a melee attack or a ranged attack against against the fighter, target her with a spell, or include her in the area of a spell. The effect ends if the creature is prevented from attacking her or attempting to do so would harm it (for example, if she is on the other side of a chasm or a wall of fire). If it cannot attack the fighter on its turn, she may make the check again as an immediate action to extend the effect for 1 round (but cannot extend it thereafter). The effect ends as soon as the creature attacks her. Once she has targeted a creature with this ability, she can not target it again for 1 day.

    If she fails, the creature is still forced to pass adjacent to her if any part of its movement is within 10' of her. This range increases by 5' at 5th level and every 5 levels thereafter, to the maximum of 30' at 20th level.

    Fighter can use this ability a number of times per day equal to his base fortitude save bonus.

    Bonus feats (Ex)
    This class feature is removed. If a fighter archetype replaces any of the fighter's bonus feats, she instead doesn't gain a combat feat for any of her combat styles at those levels.

    Combat style (Ex)
    At 1st level, a fighter can create 2 combat styles by selecting combat feats for each style. By choosing a combat style, she gains all the feats of the chosen style - 1 combat feat at 1st level, 2 combat feats at 2nd level and an additional combat feat every 2 levels thereafter, to a maximum of 11 combat feats at 20th level. She must fulfill prerequisites for all the feats chosen. Feats associated with a combat style count toward fulfilling prerequisites for other feats associated with the same combat style. She can create 3 combat styles at 6th level, 4 at 11th level and 5 at 16th level.

    She can change a combat style as a full round action which doesn't provoke attacks of opportunity. She can change any weapons and shields she is wielding as part of the same action. At 6th level, she can change a combat style as a standard action, at 11th level as a move action and at 16th level as a swift action.

    Starting at 3rd level, a fighter can also select an advanced armor training option associated with a combat style. She can select an additional advanced armor training option at 7th level.

    Starting at 5th level, a fighter can also select an advanced weapon training option associated with a combat style. She can select an additional advanced weapon training option at 9th level.

    Starting at 11th level, a fighter can also select an armor or shield mastery feat associated with a combat style. She can select an additional armor or shield mastery feats at 15th and 19th level.

    Starting at 13th level, a fighter can also select a weapon mastery feat associated with a combat style. She can select an additional weapon mastery feat at 17th level.

    Once any of the choices for a combat style are made, they cannot be changed for a particular combat style until she gains another fighter level.

    Listed below are some suggestions for combat styles.

    Combat stamina (Ex)

    Makeshift artificer (Ex)
    At 5th level, when she uses the action to change her combat style, the fighter can also shift all weapon enchantments and magic properties between the weapons and shields wielded. Magic weapon and shield properties that are limited to certain kinds of weapons or shields are still transferred, but don't function on weapons or shields that couldn't have been originally enchanted with such properties.

    Also, she gains Master armorer advanced armor training at 5th level. If she already has it, she can select any other advanced armor training option she qualifies for.

    Weapon specialist (Ex)
    At 5th level, fighter gains the Weapon specialist advanced weapon training option, except there is no limit to the number of feats he can apply to weapons in the same weapon group.
