Guerrilla Rogue Archetype


Guerrillas fight against oppressive leadership and governments—often under cover of night. Any rogue (including the unchained rogue) can select the guerrilla archetype.

Skilled Liar (Ex)

Whenever a guerrilla uses Bluff to attempt to deceive someone, she gains a bonus on the opposed roll equal to 1/2 her rogue level (minimum +1). A guerrilla can still use Disable Device to disarm magic traps.

This ability replaces trapfinding.

Cover of Night (Ex)

At 2nd level, a guerrilla learns to use darkness to her advantage. She gains a +5 bonus on Disguise, Sleight of Hand, and Stealth checks while she is in areas of dim light or darkness, and can create mundane disguises in dim light or darkness with a full-round action (instead of the normal 1d3 × 10 minutes). Additionally, while in dim light or darkness, if a guerrilla would have concealment, she instead has total concealment.

This ability replaces evasion.

Secret Messenger (Ex)

At 3rd level, a guerrilla gains a +1 bonus on Bluff checks to convey secret messages and on Sense Motive checks to discern secret messages. These bonuses increase by 1 every 3 rogue levels thereafter (to a maximum of +6 at 18th level).

This ability replaces trap sense.

Guerrilla Sniping (Ex)

At 4th level, when a guerrilla is in an area of dim light or darkness, she takes only a –10 penalty on her Stealth check to maintain her obscured location while sniping.

This ability replaces uncanny dodge.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex)

At 8th level, a guerrilla gains uncanny dodge.

This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.
