Questions about Reach and threatening


Rules Questions


I'm the GM and one of my players is a kobold rogue/ninja (I houserule it as a single class).

His weapons of choice are the kusari-gama and the Kobold Long lash tail attachment.

I want to make sure these would work flanking. Or for that matter, which areas would he threaten?

Actually, Ninja is Rogue.


If you have reach, either naturally of from a reach weapon, you can flank as long as you have an ally directly across.

As there is no "facing" in Pathfinder, the long lash would allow you to threaten all squares within 10 feet of you.

So about the ninja / rogue thing. As the ninja is an alternate class of the rogue, what class features does the character have access to? I know there is some overlap, and since there are rogue talents that unlock the Ki Pool and Ninja tricks it seems unnecessary to house rule a further exception.

You know what I meant

Thanks!

The ninja/rogue merger is mostly due to the fact that as much as I hate cries of OP or UP on the internet, Rogues really get shafted compared to say, alchemists or bards. It's a slight boost in power to try and compensate. It's based on this thread I made awhile ago. And my solution is less boosted than many suggested but is based on a lot of the responses.
