GOBLIN GOMMANDO

   
Tactics? Goblins using technology? Do you take me for an imbecile?
 Goblins are barbaric and entirely single-minded. Order dogma, which has served us well for ten thousand years, teaches us this. Goblins come in a great horde with primitive weapons, they do not build or innovate behind our backs. Guards! Take the prisioner to the holding cells to await execution for cowardice and incompetence.

-Major Kyne, last words before being head-shot by a mysterious weapon.

Goblin Gommandos are goblins who use cutting-edge tools and careful plans to sabotage the enemy strong points and create openings for their allies. Or just blow stuff up at random for the fun of it. The best among them are known as Gommando Gob.

Weapon and Armor Proficiencies: The Goblin Gommando is proficient with Light Armor, all simple weapons, two martial melee weapons of its choice, two martial ranged weapons of its choice, and one exotic ranged weapon of its choice.


Gommando Training:
At 1st and 2nd level pick one of the following abilities.
(click to show/hide)

Paint Pattern: At 2nd level, provided he has some sort of adequate pigments available (human blood for red, ash for black, leaves for green, etc), the Goblin Gommando can draw a pattern over his body that grants him a bonus depending on the color used. Multiple War Paints don't stack, just the flashiest one counts. At the lack of pigments, clothes of the same color will also do, or if the goblin has their skin of the correct color.

Elite Gommando: At 3rd and 4th level pick one of the following abilities. They can be swapped at each level-up.
(click to show/hide)

SUBTELTY: At 4th level the Goblin Gommando permanently benefits from one of the following effects. Changing between them is a swift action.

Brutally Cunning-The Goblin Gommando knows the right place to hit to smash stuff good! He can inflict critical hits on constructs and objects, and deals an extra 1d6 points of damage against Flanked or flat-footed victims.

Cunningly Brutal-The Goblin Gommando becomes an expert of low blows! He can use his Dex mod instead of his Str mod for Str-based skills, Str checks, Grapple, Bullrush, Disarm and Trip.

Hero Gommando: At 5th and 6th level pick one of the following abilities. They can be re-trained at each level-up.
(click to show/hide)

Gommando Gob:
At 6th level the Gommando Goblin is truly an exemplar of his kind. He gains either Leadership, in which case he can attract only goblins, but can use Dex instead of Cha to determine his Leadership score, or now retroactively adds his Dex mod to the number of skill points he gains per level, and can use Dex instead of other abilitiy scores to qualify for feats as well as other class abilities that would be based on other ability scores.

It might be that I'm not reading the Arsenal page correctly, but what do the weapon special descriptors mean? And what does attack bonus refer to? I can guess at most of the special descriptors, I think, and I would imagine attack bonus refers to the minimum attack bonus required to use the weapon, but it could also be interpreted as a bonus to attack rolls granted by using the weapon. I figured it would be a good idea to ask, anyway, to be sure. I couldn't find any clarification on the linked page, but that isn't to say it isn't there.

References for the reference god! Parodies for the parody throne! (gotta remember to finish that one of this days)

The attack bonus is indeed the bonus you get to attack rolls when using the weapon. Added a link to the keyword descriptions in the Arsenal page.
