Class Features[edit]

Venom (Ex): Starting at 1st level, a Shrouded Blade gains the ability to excrete injury poison from her body. This venom is inert until you preform a craft (poisonmaking) to weaponize it(DC listed on the Table). Once weaponized, the poison has a DC equal to 10+class level+Int Modifier.

To weaponize the venom, use standard craft rules for creation with the gold value being equal to the DC to create x20. You are always immune to your own venom.

Improved Spring Attack: At 1st level, you gain Spring Attack as a bonus feat. If you already had Spring Attack, or later gain it from another source, you double your base movement speed until the start of your next turn when you use the Spring Attack feat.

Dosage: Shrouded Blades know the exact amount of poison needed for an application, making sure no excessive poison is used. Each dose of poison created by you can be applied twice.

Resist Poison (Ex): Starting at 2nd level, you gain a +1 bonus on saving throws to resist poison. This bonus increases by +1 for every two class levels you gain.

Shrouded Slice: When you use the Spring Attack feat on an opponent who is flatfooted to you, you may make an additional attack with both at a -2 to hit.

Greater Spring Attack: When using the Spring Attack feat, you double your base movement speed until the start of your next turn. If you're using the improved version granted by this class, you instead triple your base movement speed.

Uncanny Venom: Poison you craft (not just your venom) is more potent than almost any other, taking on an almost mystical quality. Only you are immune to your poison, all other creatures must make saving throws when effected by your venom. However, this does not mean that an effected creature is not immune to the effects of the poison.

Rapid Venom: You can reduce the time between a poison’s initial and secondary damage from 1 minute to 1 round. Rapid Venom increases a poison’s base effective price by 100%.

Perfect Spring Attack: When using the Spring Attack feat, you triple your base movement speed until the start of your next turn. If you're using the improved version granted by this class, you instead quadruple your base movement speed.
