Fencer Feats
Fencing All of a Fencer's abilities require that she is:
  • wearing light armor
  • wielding nothing in her off-hand
  • using a finessable weapon.

This is called 'Fencing'. A failure to meet these conditions will negate the bonuses.

Duelist Stance A Fencer gains a +1 dodge bonus to AC as long as she is fencing. The bonus increases by 1 for every 5 levels the Fencer possesses.
Finesse Training Whenever the Fencer makes a successful melee attack with a weapon in one hand, she adds her Dexterity modifier instead of her Strength modifier to the damage roll.

Note: If your STR modifier is higher than 0, subtract it from the bonus damage given by your DEX modifier (DEX - STR). If your STR modifier is negative, then it will reduce your damage as normal.

Insightful Strike A Fencer becomes able to place her finesse attacks where they deal greater damage. She applies her Intelligence bonus to damage rolls (in addition to any Dexterity bonus she may have) with any light weapon, as well as any other weapon that can be used with Weapon Finesse, such as a rapier.

Targets immune to sneak attacks are immune to the Fencer’s insightful strike.

Prets? Allez! Every time the Fencer lands a critical hit, the counter on this feat increases by one. When it has reached ten, the Fencer may activate the feat.

On activation of this feat, attack rolls are made against all enemies in a 30-meter radius centered on the Fencer. These enemies take damage as normal and must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half of the Fencer’s level + her Charisma modifier) or be inflicted with the Blind and Entangled status effects for a number of rounds equal to half of the Fencer’s level.

Feint While wielding any light or finessable weapon, a Fencer can use feints to deceive her opponents by launching one or more fake attacks, forcing her opponents to strain themselves with unnecessary defensive moves.

Once per round, on a successful hit, a DC is automatically rolled of the Fencer's intelligence modifier + 1/2 Fencer level + the highest of persuade, bluff, or intimidate / 5 against the opponent’s reflex save (ignores spellcraft bonus).

A successful feint will force the opponent to fight more defensively, dropping their strength by the Fencer's base intelligence modifier (unbuffed) for round / level of the Fencer. This ability stacks on repeated failed saves.

Lunge Techniques

Every 3 levels, the Fencer can pick a new Lunge Technique from the following list. All of them only work while the Fencer is Fencing:

Advancing Steps

When a Fencer lands a critical hit, she gets a 10% movespeed increase for a number of round equal to her Fencer level.

Piercing Blow

Each time a Fencer strikes, a nearby adjacent enemy is also hit for 1d4 damage.


When a Fencer lands a critical hit, any additional critical hits scored in the same 6-second period gain an additional critical multiplier of 1.

Insightful Critical

When a Fencer lands a critical hit, double all damage from Insightful Strike for the 6-second period following the critical.


Taunt is done as an AoE instead of as a targeted ability.

Pierce the Soul

When a Fencer hits a target that is critical-hit immune, she deals an extra 1d4 damage.

Pierce the Flesh

When a Fencer lands a critical hit on a target, she inflicts 10% Piercing Vulnerability for a number of rounds equal to her Fencer level.

Surprise Attack

All critical hits scored by the Fencer on Attacks of Opportunity gain an additional critical multiplier of 1.

Cunning Heart

The Fencer adds half her Intelligence to her Fortitude saves.
