5e Swashbuckler


5e Half-Elf Swashbuckler

I am basing this on the idea of a Dumas style swashbuckler.

1st Level Statistics

2nd to 5th Level

2nd Level - Action Surge (One Use), +6 HP

3rd Level - Archetype: Battle-Master, +6 HP
Four Superiority Dice d8
Maneuvers: Disarming Attack, Evasive Footwork, Feinting Attack
Artisan's Tools: Swordsmith

4th Level - Ability Score Increase, +2 Dex, +6 HP

5th Level - Extra Attack, Proficiency Bonus +3, +6 HP


Reasoning: The choice of Battle-Master is to get the extra maneuvers which really well highlight the nature of a swashbuckler. This character will tend to be a Dex based skirmisher rather than a heavy armored knight.
