Adept at infiltration, trap removal, and lock picking, burglars prey on the homes of the wealthy and forgotten tombs alike. Such riches are guarded with vicious traps and hazards, but the devious mind of the burglar allows her to find such dangers and avoid them.
Careful Disarm (Ex)
At 4th level, whenever a burglar attempts to disarm a trap using Disable Device,
she does not spring the trap unless she fails by 10 or more. If she
does set off a trap she was attempting to disarm, she adds double her
trap sense bonus to avoid the trap.
This ability replaces uncanny dodge.
At 8th level, whenever a burglar is detected while using Stealth, she can immediately attempt a Bluff skill check opposed by the Sense Motive
skill of the creature that spotted her. If this check succeeds, the
target assumes that the noise was something innocent and disregards the
detection. This only functions if the creature cannot see the rogue.
This ability can only be used once during a given Stealth
attempt. If the same creature detects the rogue’s presence again, the
ability has no effect.
This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.
