Reaving Raider (Maenad)

Reaving Raider (Maenad)

Some maenads choose the life of the pirate over that of more reputable work. These reavers are known for taking enemies hostage for ransom, boarding enemy vessels by using their racial ability to knock enemies away from the ship’s edge, and doing it all while wearing heavier armor than one would expect of a pirate.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies

The reaver gains medium armor proficiency.

Take Captive (Su)

While maintaining psionic focus, the reaver can choose to deal nonlethal damage with weapons that otherwise deal lethal damage without incurring the -4 penalty on the attack rolls. In addition, when the reaver confirms a critical hit with an attack that deals nonlethal damage, he can expend his psionic focus to try to knock the enemy out, although a successful Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 the reaver’s class level (rounded down) + the reaver’s Charisma modifier)negates this effect.

This ability replaces trapfinding.

Clear the Rail (Su)

Once a reaver has reached 3rd level, when he activates his racial outburst ability, he can choose to forego the benefit of the ability (although he still suffers all appropriate penalties) and direct the energy from the outburst into a sonic blast at a single enemy within a 30 ft. range. The reaver makes a ranged bull rush attempt at the target, using his Charisma modifier instead of his Strength modifier and using his character level in place of his base attack bonus. This ability does not provoke an attack of opportunity and the reaver does not move with the targeted enemy.

This ability replaces trap sense.

Disrupting Scream (Su)

A reaver of 8th level can activate his racial outburst ability and choose to forego the benefit of the ability (although he still suffers all appropriate penalties) to attempt to knock an adjacent enemy off guard as a swift action. The targeted enemy must make a successful Reflex save (DC 10 + 1/2 the reaver’s class level (rounded down) + the reaver’s Charisma modifier) or be treated as flat-footed for the reaver’s next attack made on the reaver’s turn.

This ability replaces the rogue talent normally gained at 8th level.
