Path of the Black Flag- Swashbuckler

Swashbucklers are rebels, in their hearts if not always in their ideology. This makes Anarchy quite attractive to some of them.

Anarchist Swashbucklers find the Corsair, Daring Infiltrator, and Mysterious Avenger archetypes to be particularly complementary. Anarchist Swashbucklers also have access to a special deed: Spectacular Panache.

There is no specific Anarchist swashbuckler archetype but there is a deed used by Anarchist swashbucklers: spectacular panache. Swashbucklers who use this deed are often known as Dashing Spectacles.

Spectacular PanacheWhenever a Dashing Spectacle attempts a deed that requires the spending of at least one panache point, she may spend an additional panache point to make the deed spectacular. If the deed succeeds her allies, who clearly view the explosion, receive a +1 morale bonus to their attacks on the following round. This bonus increases to +2 at 5th level, +4 at 10th level, and +5 at 15th level. This bonus lasts for a number of rounds equal to ½ the level of the Swashbuckler, for a minimum of one round. The number of allies who can enjoy the benefit of this bonus is equal to the level of the Swashbuckler. This ability does not stack with other morale bonuses. If the deed fails, the additional point is lost and nothing else happens. Deeds that require multiple rolls (like the opportune parry and riposte) must succeed on all roles to be spectacular.
