Tengu Sword Trance
You have studied the ways of the tengu, and have learned to adapt your training to emulate their stylistic sword trances.
Prerequisite: Combat Expertise, advanced talents.
Benefit: You can choose a tengu sword trance from the list. Entering your trance is a full-round action that provokes attacks of opportunity. You can maintain the trance for a number of rounds per day equal to 1/2 your rogue level + your Wisdom modifier. You can end your trance as a free action. Following a trance, you are fatigued for a number of rounds equal to 2 × the number of rounds spent in the trance. You cannot enter a new trance while fatigued but can otherwise enter a trance multiple times during a single encounter or combat. If you fall unconscious, your trance immediately ends.
If a trance treats you as if using a style feat, you count as possessing the base style feat for the purpose of meeting that prerequisite for other style feats in the tree, but can only use them while that trance is active.
Crane Trance (Ex): Your blade rises and falls with the graceful sweeping arcs of the mountain crane. When in this trance, you gain the benefits of the Crane Style feat.
Dragon Trance (Ex): Like the dragon, you have honed the steadiness of your mind and body. When in this trance, you gain the benefits of the Dragon Style feat.
Leopard Trance (Ex): Using the swiftness of the leopard, your evasive footwork confuses your opponents. When in this trance, you gain the benefits of the Mobility feat.
Monkey Trance (Ex): As the monkey springs, you leap from the reach of your enemies. While in this trance, you can make an Acrobatics check opposed by an opponent’s CMD. If you succeed, you may move 5 feet as a swift action within the opponent’s threatened area; this movement does not provoke attacks of opportunity and does not count as a 5-foot step.
Serpent Trance (Ex): Like the serpent, your quick movements allow you to catch your opponent unawares. While in this trance, you receive a +4 bonus on Bluff checks made to feint during combat.
Tiger Trance (Ex): You pounce upon your opponents, striking with the ferocity and brute force of a wild tiger. While in this trance, you can make a combat maneuver check against an opponent within charge range. If you succeed, you may charge that opponent and make a full attack against that opponent.
Special: You can select this talent multiple times. Each time it is taken, you can remain in the trance for 2 additional rounds, and learn another trance. You can only use one type of trance at a time.
