While many alchemists revel in the destruction their creations can cause, the chirurgeon pursues a more subtle art.

By studying anatomy and medicine, they not only gain skill at healing, but an adeptness at striking the most vulnerable parts of their enemies.

Sneak Attack (Ex)

At 1st level, a chirurgeon gains the sneak attack ability as a rogue of the same level. If a character already has sneak attack from another class, the levels from the classes that grant sneak attack stack to determine the effective rogue level for the sneak attack’s extra damage dice (so an alchemist 1/rogue 1 has a +1d6 sneak attack like a 2nd-level rogue, an alchemist 2/rogue 1 has a +2d6 sneak attack like a 3rd-level rogue, and so on).

This ability replaces bomb. The chirurgeon cannot select bomb discoveries.

Disease Resistance (Ex)

At 2nd level, a chirurgeon gains a +2 bonus on all saving throws against disease. This bonus increases to +4 at 5th level, and then again to +6 at 8th level. At 10th level, an alchemist becomes completely immune to disease.

This ability replaces poison resistance and poison immunity.

Skilled Hands (Ex)

The chirurgeon may use their Intelligence modifier when making Heal checks instead of their Wisdom modifier. At 2nd level, a chirurgeon adds half their level on Heal skill checks. At 5th level they gain the skill unlock for Heal.

Makeshift Bandages (Ex)

Starting at 3rd level, when the chirurgeon uses the last use of a healer’s kit there is a 20% chance that they are able to stretch the medicaments and plasters, leaving the kit with one use only they or another chirurgeon can use. This remaining use can potentially be stretched in the same manner. At 7th level, and every 4 levels thereafter, this chance increases by 20%, to a maximum of 100% at 19th level.

This ability replaces multi bomb, empowered bomb, flurry bomb, and ultimate bomb.

Rogue Talents

A chirurgeon can select a rogue talent that adds effects to sneak attack in place of a discovery. At 10th level they can select an advanced rogue talent that adds effects to sneak attack in place of a discovery.
