Bladewalker

Bonded to their weapons by magic and experience, bladewalkers can travel the paths their weapons carve as easily as walking down the street.

Warp Specialist: At 2nd level, the bladewalker gains the Warp sphere with the Personal Warp drawback (including the bonus talent normally granted for taking a drawback). The bladewalker does not gain additional talents for gaining class levels but treats her class levels as Mid-Caster levels when using the Warp sphere and may use either Intelligence, Wisdom, or Charisma as her casting ability modifier (chosen at the time she gains this class feature). These caster levels stack normally with those gained from other sources. The bladewalker may take the Extra Magic Talent feat, but only to gain additional talents from the Warp sphere unless she has the casting class feature from another source.

In addition, the bladewalker gains a pool of spell points equal to 1 + her casting ability modifier. If the bladewalker’s armiger levels grant her a spell pool from another source (such as the reliquarian archetype’s spell pool class feature), she gains only the larger of the two pools; she does not add them together. This pool replenishes once per day after 8 hours of rest.

This replaces the prowess normally gained at 2nd level; the bladewalker gains her first prowess at 5th level.

Blade’s Path (Su): From 4th level on, whenever the bladewalker successfully damages an enemy or object with an attack made with one of her customized weapons, she may spend 1 spell point as an immediate action to instantly teleport to an unoccupied square adjacent to the target of that attack. When using this ability the bladewalker may also instantly recover a thrown weapon used in the attack as long as she has a hand free; ammunition that is destroyed or consumed by a successful attack cannot be recovered in this manner.

This replaces the prowess normally gained at 4th level.

Path of Blades (Su): Upon reaching 20th level the bladewalker no longer needs to spend a spell point or use an immediate action to use the teleportation ability granted by her blade’s path ability; whenever the bladewalker damages an opponent with one of her customized weapons, she may instantly teleport to an unoccupied square adjacent to the target of that attack and retrieve any thrown weapon used in the attack as a free action that can be taken even when it’s not her turn.

In addition, whenever the bladewalker successfully damages the same opponent with attacks made from two different locations while using her blade’s path ability, that opponent is flat-footed against all attacks until the start of the bladewalker’s next turn.

This replaces the unlimited assault class feature.
