View Full Version : Swift Tactician PrC (help!)

2011-10-26, 12:32 PM
Concept: A scout like character that can hold his own in melee combat. I wanted to make sure that the character had ways to escape AoO and over whelming odds when forced into melee combat. When my original version was posted I was advised that i needed to open the PrC up so other base classes could join in on the fun.

What should I add/remove? Any changes or opinions on the class features? Does the class need nerfing?
