Urban Ninja

Some rogues are lawless, rowdy creatures, but not all. There are some for whom discipline is as natural as breathing, their focus allowing them to touch on both the mundane and the supernatural in their training. These are the urban ninjas, the students of the unseen, and lords of the shadows. Some of them gained their skills by studying with disgraced ninjas, while others may have traveled with monks or assassins. However they learned, one thing is always certain: when one possesses both the skill of a ninja and the free spirit of a rogue, there is little that can stand one’s way.

(Note: This archetype does not function unless playing with the added guile pool class feature.)

The urban ninja is an archetype of the rogue class.

Ki Pool (Su)

At 2nd level, an urban ninja gains a ki pool equal to his Wisdom modifier. This ki pool functions like a ninja’s ki pool, granting the same abilities and bonuses as a ninja of equal level.

This ability replaces evasion.

Guile Pool (Ex)

At 2nd level, an urban ninja gains a guile pool equal to his Charisma modifier. At 5th level and every 3 levels after, an urban ninja may choose to add 1 point to either his guile pool or his ki pool.

This alters the guile pool class ability.

Ninja Tricks

Ninja Tricks: An urban ninja may select either a ninja trick or a rogue talent whenever he selects a rogue talent. At 10th level and above, the urban ninja may select either an advanced rogue talent or a master ninja trick whenever he selects a rogue talent.
