Archetype for Rogue class
by DarkOne the Drow
Besides being adept at trap removal and lock picking, they are also very skillful in infiltrating homes of the wealthy and forgotten tombs by using their acrobatic skills. They are skillful in locating and disarming vicious traps that normally protect the wealth. Cat burglars also use their acrobatic skills to leave unnoticed or escape when spotted.
Expert Acrobat (Ex) (APG 132): At 1st level, an acrobat does not suffer any armour check penalties on Acrobatics, Climb Sleight of Hand , or Stealth skill checks while wearing light armour. When she is not wearing armour, she gains a +2 competency bonus on Acrobatics and Fly skill checks. This ability replaces Sneak Attack.
Acrobatic Talents (Ex): As the cat burglar gains experience in acrobatic skills, she learns a number of acrobatic talents. Starting from 3rd level, every two level there after and 20th level, she gains an acrobatic talent from the provided list. She may not select an acrobatic talent more than once, unless the talent allows multiple selecting. Acrobatic talents are Expert Leaper (APG 130), Fast Stealth (CR 68), Ledge Walker (CR 68), Nimble Climber (APG 131), Peerless Maneuver (APG 131), Rogue Crawl (CR 68), Rope Master (UC 70), Stand Up (CR 68), and Wall Scramble (UC 70). This ability replaces Sneak Attack.
Careful Disarm (Ex) (APG 132): At 4th level, whenever a burglar attempts to disarm a trap using Disable Device, she does not spring the trap unless she fails by 10 or more. If she does set off a trap she was attempting to disarm, she adds double her trap sense bonus to avoid the trap. This ability replaces Uncanny Dodge.
Distraction (Ex) (APG 132): At 8th level, whenever a burglar is detected while using Stealth, she can immediately attempt a Bluff skill check opposed by the Sense Motive skill of the creature that spotted her. If this check succeeds, the target assumes that the noise was something innocent and disregards the detection. This ability can only be used once during a given Stealth attempt. If the same creature detects the rogue's presence again, the ability has no effect. This ability replaces Improved Uncanny Dodge.
Advance Acrobatic Talents (Ex): Starting from 11th level she can choose an advance acrobat talent instead of an acrobatic talent. Advance acrobat talents are Fast Tumble (APG 131), Hide in Plain Sight (UR 71), and Improved Evasion (CR 70). This ability replaces Sneak Attack.
