Paragon Paths -- Audacious Highwayman
 I’d say ‘your money or your life’, but let’s face it – I can take both.

Prerequisite: Loreman

Highwaymen are a dime a dozen, haunting the once well patrolled roads in the east and woodland paths in the west, waiting to part people and their hard earned wealth. But few have the bravado and derring-do to be a truly audacious highwayman.

Such people have taken the relatively new firearm and combined it with swordplay to use both in a truly spectacular fashion. Loremen are the most likely to take up this challenge, but rangers, fighters and even paladins can see the allure of it.

Audacious Highwayman Path Features

Gun and Blade (11th level): You threat all one handed firearms as offhand weapons. You gain a +1 bonus to damage rolls while wielding a melee weapon and a firearm.

Strafing Action (11th level): When you spend an action point to take a move action, you may make a basic ranged attack during that movement.

One With the Gun (16th level): You do not provoke opportunity attacks for making a ranged attack with a firearm. You can make a basic ranged attack with a firearm as an opportunity attack. You can still only make opportunity attacks against adjacent creatures, however.
