Swiftblade

Prerequisite: Assassin

"You'll never touch me with that clumsy weapon."

Some Assassin's choose to forfeit grace and subtlety for pure power, making sure their enemies meet death more quickly. You take a different path. You use small, easily concealed weapons which afford you added agility and the ability to pass unnoticed in large crowds. Though you don't have the raw power of an Assassin wielding a Fullblade or an Executioner's Axe, you can slip in unseen to your target's abode and deliver the blade that ends its life.

Path Features

Swift Strike (Level 11): Whenever you roll damage with a one-handed weapon that has the off-hand property you treat a roll of 1 or 2 as a roll of 3.

Darting Action (Level 11): Whenever you spend an action point to take an extra action, you can move your speed either before or after the extra action.

Deadly Precision (Level 16): You can score a critical hit with one-handed weapons that have the off-hand property on a roll of 18–20.
