3PP Advanced Talents: Drop Dead Studios | Rite Publishing

As a rogue gains experience, she learns a number of talents that aid her and confound her foes. Starting at 2nd level, a rogue gains one rogue talent. She gains an additional rogue talent for every 2 levels of rogue attained after 2nd level. A rogue cannot select an individual talent more than once.

Talents marked with an asterisk (*) add effects to a rogue’s sneak attack. Only one of these talents can be applied to an individual attack and the decision must be made before the attack roll is made.

At 10th level, and every two levels thereafter, a rogue can choose an advanced talent in place of a rogue talent.

Skill Stunts: Talents with “Stunt” in the name are a new type of rogue talent. A rogue may select multiple skill stunts, each keyed to a different Dexterity– or Strength-based skill, but may not select the same one twice.

Unchained Rogue: Note that the talents from PZO9466 may be selected by rogues, shadowdancers, and unchained rogues. They are highlighted in green to call them out for your convenience.
