    Then simply say it is such. "You gain a dodge bonus to your AC. The bonus is whatever at level X, whatever+ at level Y... etc."

    Then what does "Scallywags are skilled, they gain the following bonuses to add where they choose as long as its a class feature." mean? You're now saying those bonuses are to 4 skills of the player's choose, but that is something very different. Be more precise in your language, because, right now, it is rather staggered and unprofessional.

    Booty Call exists as a 1st and 20th level ability. I called it a "bump," because the base ability is "bumped" up at level 20. The rest of the progressions are obvious if uninspiring and just sort of there.

    EDIT: Honestly, this is a hodgepodge of random abilities and feats with no real focus or design. It gains a skirmish like ability, but gains locked in feats. It has parry, about the only thing unique to the class itself, but something easily replicated via a number of different maneuvers. When I look at this class, I honestly feel it would simply be easier to roll up a Swashbuckler instead for that sort of character archetype simply because it lacks, well, anything that sticks out as a defining feature.
