Does snakebite striker's level treat its level as brawler when multi with free-style fighter?


Rules Questions


snakebite striket

Sneak Attack (Ex)

At 1st level, the snakebite striker can make a sneak attack. This is as the rogue ability of the same name. At 1st level, her sneak attack damage is +1d6. This increases by 1d6 at 6th, 10th, 12th, and 20th levels. If she gets a sneak attack bonus from another source, the bonuses on damage stack.

This ability replaces martial flexibility.

Martial Flexibility (Ex)

A free-style fighter gains martial flexibility as per the brawler class feature, treating his fighter level as his brawler level for the purposes of this ability.

Is there any synergy between these two archetype?

No. In this case, Martial Flexibility is made a Fighter class feature due to the Free-Style Fighter archetype, so its effectiveness is based on your Fighter level, not your Brawler level.

If your Brawler did not take an archetype that replaced Martial Flexibility, you would gain two different pools of uses, and they would not stack for determining how quickly you can use it or how many feats at once you can maintain.


I see, thanks.

Thought they might combine to make a somewhat better free-style fighter with full martial flexibility, sneak attack, and free fighting style.
