:: Duelist ::


Icon: ir_duel
(PRESTIGE CLASS)
The Duelist is a nimble, intelligent fighter trained in making precise attacks with light weapons, such as the rapier. Also known as the swashbuckler, the Duelist always takes full advantage of his quick reflexes and wits in a fight. Rather than wearing bulky armor, Duelists feel that the best way to protect themselves is to not get hit at all.

- Hit Die: d10
- Proficiencies: A Duelist is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, but does not gain any armor or shield proficiencies.
- Skill Points: 4 + Int Modifier.

REQUIREMENTS:

Base Attack Bonus: +6
Feats: Dodge, Weapon Finesse, Mobility.

ABILITIES:

Level
1: Canny Defense - Dodge bonus to AC based on intelligence bonus, limited by class level.

NOTES:

Duelist loses Canny Defense, Precise Strike, and Grace while wearing any armor or shield.

Could not implement PnP's Improved Reaction, +2 bonus to initiative. So I gave them the Thug feat, as it is the closes thing to it.

Could not implement PnP's Enhanced Mobility, +4 AC vs. Attacks of Opportunity. That bonus would stack with mobility... I gave them Spring Attack instead as that was the closest thing to it.
