I'm wanting to design a character who uses a sword cane as his primary weapon. Something.. scoundrel like in his design, and for a city sort of campaign.

Currently I'm thinking of either doing A rogue-swashbuckler or a cad fighter.

The biggest problem I have with Pathfinder is smart fighter types need so many feats @.@

One of my big inspirations is guy who fights without honor in game of thrones. (but his dead opponent did.)


Dex-based Lore Warden might be good, especially if you go into the Duelist PRC from it.
What level are you starting him at?


While a fighter does sound like the Game of Thrones fellow, how about a Magus? They wield single weapons and a sword-cane qualifies.


Bron is moderately cool, but it's his personality, not his fighting style. In fact, I don't think Pathfinder can really simulate the "I fight dirty but win against honorable opponents" style; by Pathfinder standards, Bron wins because he's higher level.

Maybe Cad is close, as you've mentioned. By the time you're 6th level with Improved, Greater, and Quick Dirty Trick at +3 CMB which only requires one of your iterative attacks to hinder a foe for several rounds, you just might be able to pull off a "dirty rather than decent" fighting style. Until then, you may find the concept a bit frustrating.


Bard/ cad heavy on the cad, gives you a bunch of interesting options and defenses, not to mention skill bumps.

Also consider a well placed imp feint + SA + vital strike. That's a retry dirty trick. As are trips and disarms. Lore warden 4/ rogue X gets you this pretty well


Urban Ranger! I cannot recommend them enough. God, I had so much fun with mine.

We are starting at level 1.

Alright, I'll look into Lore warden/urban Ranger. Hopefully they are in the hard back books.

I'm loving mine in PFS, that's for sure!

Bron is definitely a Cad...and a LOT smarter and better than he's given credit for. He plays stupid...so that his opponents are never prepared.

It's Cad you want, but it's Int and levels that you need.

Bron

Here is what I got for level 1.

At level 2 i plan on getting imp dirty trick. I wish there was a way to draw hidden weapons faster, but I will be getting Quick Draw/Imp initiative.

I think Slight of Hand and Stealth will be my other two skill focuses, or maybe should do Sense motive/Perception.

Our stat limit is a 25 point buy.

Bron 20th level

This is what I'm currently planning for when I hit level 20. Sadly though the hero maker doesn't really allow for Fast Learner to be used.. or I have not yet learned how to use it. So there would be 20 more skill points.
