Ronin (Legendary Samurai Archetype)

The path of honor is common for legendary samurai, and yet others care to tread different ground. Lacking a master or a path in life, the ronin exists outside the fringes of society, a wandering vagabond searching for meaning in life.

No Challenge

A ronin cannot issue a challenge, despite having the challenge ability. However they can exchange it for any ability which would require them to replace challenge. For example, a ronin could select the weapon training alternative class feature or the oni warrior archetype.

Tainted Renown (Ex)

A ronin is treated as though they were both in their social and vigilante identity for the purposes of the renown vigilante talent.

This ability alters samurai’s renown.

Honorless Tactics (Ex)

At 2nd level, a ronin gains the Improved Dirty Trick feat, even if they would not meet the prerequisites.

At 6th level, they also receive the Greater Dirty Trick feat, even if they would not meet the prerequisites. If the ronin already possesses one of these feats, they can instead select another combat feat.

This ability replaces the determined ability of the resolve class feature.

Roguish Guile (Ex)

A ronin can select a rogue talent in place of a social talent. At 10th level, they can also select advanced rogue talents.

This ability alters warrior’s grace.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex)

At 4th level, a ronin gains the uncanny dodge class feature.

This ability replaces banner.

Improved Uncanny Dodge (Ex)

At 10th level, a ronin gains the improved uncanny dodge class feature.

This ability replaces greater banner.
