Making Edward Kenway


Conversions

Liberty's Edge

With the unchained book now out are there any ideas on how to take Edward Kenway and make a pathfinder character. My thoughts are using the unchained rogue with the pirate archetype and then dipping into gunslinger.
Feats would be focused on 2 weapon fighting and quick draw. I would go as far as A one level dip into ninja for poison use. But what are your thoughts and are there any threads out there that already show a good conversion of Edward Kenway.

if you can get the firearm rules into a 1 higher degree of availability, commonplace guns, i could see someone using 4-6 pistols with quick draw.

I'd say 3-4 levels of unchained rogue (4 if you want a 2nd rogue talent), then maybe a level or 3 of gunslinger(maybe 5 really if you used your pistols a lot), then lore warden or tactician fighter.


He's clearly a swashbuckler with the picaroon archetype.

he uses sabers/cutlass to dual wield, you can't do that with a swash.

I recommend using "short swords" btw, a cutlass is technically a light weapon going off of real world descriptions.


The gladius could work as a representation of sabers/cutlasses. Slashing, light, TWF-friendly. There's also the actual cutlass, but since it's not light it'll be a pain to TWF with.

Now why would you think that. Conversions of far more deadly characters have occurred.


Sorry about that,got Edward confused with the traitor. Nm!


I'd throw a vote in for slayer, considering that they literally modeled slayer around the titular assassins of assassin's creed. Quick Draw is just about the only requirement, and some gunslinger dipping may be a fair choice.

slayer can also ignore the dex requirement for TWF and be str based.
