Edgeslinger - Roguish Archetype


In the crowded taverns and narrow alleys of a city, there is no room to draw a sword or knock an arrow when danger strikes. Which it frequently does in the urban arena. So, it is the wise ruffian who trusts their life to a dagger. Silent, swift, and most notably, cheap, it is the ideal weapon for metropolitan combat.

Some rogues take their mastery of the dagger to greater heights—and distances. These Edgeslingers learn to throw knives with pinpoint accuracy, even being able to curve their trajectory. This has led to some on the streets referring to them as “impalement artists”. They are a storm of sharp, steel winds, slinging daggers and other lethal implements at incredible speeds.

Easily concealed from the eager eyes of the guards until the moment you slip it from its hidden sheath and into the gap in your enemy’s ribs, the dagger also lends itself to subtle acts of violence. Such means suit the Edgeslinger well, for they can draw their dagger and launch it across the room before their quarry can blink. And they’ll be dead before they know what hit them.

This knife-throwing subclass is perfect for ninjas, knaves, and ne'erdowells of all descriptions!

Amazing subclass! I've played a few games using this with my new character and I'm having a blast. It's so easy when making a new character to fall into the trap of picking the weapons that have the most damage output. Edgeslinger gives [...]

An excellent subclass! I love the flavor and the focus on dagger throwing! The feature of them returning is just a chef's kiss. And the Quickdraw! So cinematic! I can imagine a serious roleplay only for it to end with my character throwin [...]

This is a fun subclass... very cinematic! This makes fighting with just daggers competitive with other weapons... maybe even giving it an "edge". :) The only tweak I would recommend is the part of "Slash, Slice, and Sling" w [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
