Bouncer

The netherworld is a dangerous place, and where danger lurks, some demons are not as well suited to fight their own battles as they wish to be. When that's the case they often times hire powerful body guards or defenders known as Bouncers. Bouncers were trained in the art of protecting their clients at any cost. As such, they are a defensive class made to take damage from enemies while providing a defense for their allies.

Class Features

All of the following are class features of the Bouncer prestige class. Weapon and Armor Proficiency: A Bouncer gains no new proficiencies.

Techniques Readied: At levels 1, 2, 4, 6, 8, and 10, A Bouncer gains the ability to ready martial techniques as if they had leveled up in it's previous class. If it had more than one previous class you must choose which class at Each level. You do not learn new techniques from this and must still train to learn them just as before.

Inheritance of Evil

At 1st level you gain the ability to purchase Bouncer Evilities at normal price, as they are now on your class list.

Menacing Glare (Ex): At 1st level, A Bouncer is trained to look tough and scare off ruffians. When they use intimidate to demoralize an opponent, they add twice their charisma modifier to the check.

Damage Pool (su): At 1st level, The bouncer learns to become hearty and to temporarily shrug off damage so as to last longer in a fight. A Damage pool works similarly to damage reduction. Whenever you take damage from any source, reduce the damage by the number listed in your damage pool. With the damage pool, you can utilize negated damage for great effect. Whenever you take damage, you store a number of it equal to your damage pool. At any time afterward, you can choose to either deal that damage back as part of your attack damage, or you can heal yourself or an ally for the same amount. The ally must be within reach. Using this is a swift action, unless attacking in which it is a standard action. The damage only lasts until the end of the round, until you reach 10th level, in which it lasts for 2 rounds.

Defensive Maneuver

  • Improved Damage Pool: The bouncer's damage pool increases by +2.
  • Shield Ally: Whenever an ally is the target of an attack, if you are within reach of the ally, you can make a reflex saving throw against the attack roll. If you succeed, you take the damage instead.
  • Fast Healing: The Bouncer gains fast healing 2.
  • Resistance: a number of times per day equal to 3+ your wisdom modifier, you can activate a resistance spell on yourself as an immediate action. Every time you take this the resistance bonus increases by +1
  • Vitality: On the level you take this defensive maneuver you gain your constitution modifier to hit points again.
  • Improved Evasion: You can only take this if you have Evasion. You gain the Improved Evasion ability.

Once per day, if a Bouncer is killed by any means, they can make a final stand until the end of his next round. The bouncer gains a +8 bonus to strength and dexterity and his damage pool doubles. His land speed increases by 30 feet. Finally the bouncer is immune to all status ailments when this round ends, the bouncer falls dead unless he has received proper healing.
