Escapologist


Students of arcane magic, legerdemain, and stealth, eldritch scoundrels are a rare breed of adventurer most commonly found seeking lost and valuable arcane writings in the ruins of fallen empires.

The escapologist excels at escaping any confinement, Whether physical, magical, or mental. Few restraints can hold an escapologist for long.

Elusive

An escapologist adds 1/2 her rogue level (minimum +1) as a bonus on all Disable Device and Escape Artist checks. An escapologist can use Disable Device to disarm magical traps.

This ability replaces trapfinding, but counts as trapfinding for the purposes of prerequisites and abilities that require trapfinding.

Unfettered Mind (Su)

At 3rd level, an escapologist can attempt an Escape Artist check as a full-round action to remove a mind-affecting effect currently affecting her.

The DC of this check is equal to the effect’s original save DC + 20. She cannot remove effects that do not allow a saving throw. She can attempt to escape even if paralyzed or restrained, as long as she can take purely mental actions. She can attempt this check against a particular effect once per round if the effect is measured in rounds, once per minute if the effect is measured in minutes, once per 10 minutes if the effect is measured in 10-minute intervals, and so on.

This ability replaces uncanny dodge.

Impossible Escape (Su)

At 8th level, as an immediate action, an escapologist can attempt an Escape Artist check at a –10 penalty and apply the result in place of either a failed Reflex save or her AC against an attack that would have hit her. If she succeeds, her contortions let her avoid the attack or effect entirely. Using this ability leaves the escapologist staggered until the end of her next turn. If the escapologist can’t become staggered, she can’t use impossible escape.

This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.
