Although most rogues rely on sly tricks and graceful maneuvers, some rogues eschew these trappings in favor of brute strength. Relying on their brawn rather than their brains, bruisers often use their powerful builds to crush enemies with powerful, debilitating strikes rather than out maneuver their opponents.

Strength Training (Ex)

At 1st level, a bruiser adds her Strength bonus (if any) on all Fortitude saves that she makes. At 3rd level, 11th level, and 19th level, the bruiser gains a bonus feat, chosen from the following list: Cleave, Cleaving Finish, Dazing Assault, Furious Focus, Great Cleave, Improved Cleaving Finish, Power Attack, or Stunning Assault. She must meet the feat’s prerequisites, if any. This ability replaces finesse training.
