Trap Sense (Ex): Gains trap sense +5 (to Reflex saves versus trap effects and dodge bonus to AC versus trap attacks). (This bonus improves by +1 for every three levels gained after 3rd).
Improved Evasion: If she succeeds on a Reflex saving throw versus area damage, she takes no damage, and if she fails, she still only takes half damage. She must not be helpless, etc. (Evasion gained at level 6, “Improved” taken as bonus rogue talent at level 12.)

[Number of rounds= 4+Charisma+Extra Performance (currently 14). Maintaining this bonus is a free action, but it ends immediately if the archaeologist is killed, paralyzed, stunned, knocked unconscious, or otherwise prevented from taking a free action to maintain it each round. Archaeologist's luck is treated as bardic performance for the purposes of feats, abilities, effects, and the like that affect bardic performance. Like bardic performance, it cannot be maintained at the same time as other performance abilities.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: A bard is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the longsword, rapier, sap, short sword, shortbow, and whip. Bards are also proficient with light armor and shields (except tower shields). A bard can cast bard spells while wearing light armor and using a shield without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a bard wearing medium or heavy armor incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass bard still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.
Scholar of Ruins: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (geography) and Knowledge (dungeoneering) checks.
Poverty Stricken: You gain +1 to Survival checks and Survival is a class skill for you. (Misha was not poverty-stricken, per se, but had to look after her sister after her father left, and certainly has trained in basic survival skills both growing up and seeking experience as an explorer.)

At 6th level, an archaeologist can take 10 on Disable Device checks, even if distracted or endangered, and can disarm magical traps. This ability replaces the versatile performance ability.
Terrain Mastery - Underground (Ex) (archeologist rogue talent gained at level 4: Works like ranger’s favored terrain except that it does not level the same way.

Misha Keroun had been obsessed with ruins and adventure since childhood. Her father Andro, always willing to fill her with grand and exaggerated tales of his days as an adventurer, claimed he and his friends had even found a buried, ancient city, full of forgotten treasure—but were forced away by a dark curse before they could prove their discovery. He never exactly told her where the ancient city was, despite her begging, and a part of her mind nagged her that his stories probably did not match reality and that there was no such place. But she wanted to believe her father desperately enough to go along with him, and ask him for more stories about his adventures, in the "lost city" and elsewhere.
He did have some skill as an adventurer, that was certain at least, and he trained her in basic combat and survival skills even as he told her his stories. But over time, the stories stopped in spite of her encouragement, and he grew somber and withdrawn, even flat-out ignoring Misha when her questions grew to be too much. He had occasionally fallen into such slumps--they had driven their mother Ema away when her younger sister was just a toddler--but Misha was sure he'd snap out of it. However, one day, when she was barely of age, he disappeared, leaving her alone to care for her younger sister Marga. She blamed herself for pushing him to talk about something he obviously had not wanted to discuss, and guilt laid heavily on her mind. Sending out inquiries, an old friend of her father’s, Isric, arrived in person and gave her the sad news that he was found dead outside a tavern in Magnimar, far from the tiny hamlet where they lived in northern Varisia. He told her the truth as well—they had found an ancient ruin (although he refused to tell her its location as well), but no dark curse had driven her father and his companions from exploring it. Rather, after a string of bad luck, they had broken into in-fighting, and Andro stole his party’s supplies and abandoned them to perish. Maybe her father’s friend hoped the truth would dissuade Misha from pursuing a life of adventure—but it only spurred her on. If her father was a disappointment, if her heroes weren’t real, then she herself would become the adventurer of her dreams.
Once her little sister was old enough to pursue her own life, Misha headed from their little homestead to various cities to train and study. From the highest academies to the seediest taverns, from crowded settlement to dank cave, she fought, ran, read, learned, bartered for, and collected. She was particularly interested in old ruins, their history and location and the treasures within, leafing through countless books on whatever she could find, reputable or otherwise. If this lost city existed, she’d find them, and they would know the Keroun name for her great discovery, and not for her father's shame. Indeed, from Magnimar to as far away as the Shackles, some traders and travelers do speak of Misha, that black-haired human girl in the gray jacket, always looking for maps and baubles and porters to hire. In the same breath, many speak of her as a fool for the constant trouble and danger she seeks out--she should have learned that adventure leads to ruin and selfishness as it did to her father, they say. And at the very least, many warn Misha to be careful what she wishes for. She just grins, and says the most dangerous dreams are the best ones worth pursuing.
Misha is about 5’6” with a slender build, albeit with broad shoulders. She has light brown skin, weathered from travel; grayish-green eyes; and straight black hair which she keeps in a ponytail under a broad-rimmed hat. She wears a grayish-green jacket—cut to her knees—over her protective leathers.
