Action Boost

This ability, gained at 4th level, allows a Daredevil to spend 2 action points on a single action in a round.

Adrenaline Rush

At 5th level, a Daredevil can temporarily increase one of his or her physical ability scores (Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution). The Daredevil spends 1 action point and gets to increase the selected ability score by 1d4+1 points. The increase lasts for a number of rounds equal to his or her class level. At the end of the duration, the Daredevil is fatigued for 1d4+1 rounds.

At 8th level, a Daredevil can temporarily increase two physical ability scores. At the end of the duration, the Daredevil is fatigued for 1d6+2 rounds.

Delay Damage

Once per day, a Daredevil of 7th level or higher can delay the damage dealt by a single attack or effect for a number of rounds equal to his or her class level.

Damage Threshold

A 10th-level Daredevil increases his or her massive damage threshold by 3 points. This increase stacks with the increase provided by the Improved Damage Threshold feat.
