Class Features

The following class features pertain to the Tracer advanced class.

The benefits of this ability apply to all characters that have an allegiance to this organization. An expert tracker, the Tracer gains a +2 bonus on Bluff, Intimidate, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks when using these skills against members of the target species. Likewise, he gets a +2 bonus on weapon damage rolls against such creatures.

As a free action, a Tracer may spend an action point to change his target group.

Urban Tracking: At 1st level, a Tracer gains the bonus feat Urban Tracking.

Swift Strike: The Tracer becomes skilled at taking down unwary targets quickly. He deals +1 damage on successful melee and ranged attacks made against a flat-footed opponent. This extra damage can be lethal or nonlethal, as determined by the choice of weapon an the manner in which it's used.

The extra damage increases to +2 at 5th level and +3 at 8th level.

At 4th level, a Tracer no longer suffers the –5 penalty on Hide and Move Silently checks while moving at full speed.

At 7th level, a Tracer suffers only a –10 penalty on Hide and Move Silently checks while running or charging (instead of the normal –20 penalty).
