Unofficial rules compendium

The bravo is a street fighter, a survivor who learns to mix craftiness with brute force. He has most of the fighter's strengths, along with some additional skills to help keep him alive on the mean streets. Despite the name, not all bravos are mere hooligans. Many are crafty veterans who use stealth and trickery to gain an advantage against their opponents. Most bravos are non-lawful, though sometimes gangs of bravos with a lawful streak band together.

Bravo Talents

As a bravo gains experience, she learns a number of talents that aid her and confound her foes. Starting at 3rd level, a bravo gains one rogue talent. She gains an additional rogue talent for every 3 levels of bravo attained after 3rd level. A bravo cannot select an individual talent more than once. A bravo can pick a combat feat he fulfills the prerequisites for instead of a rogue talent, but cannot cannot choose ninja tricks. A bravo does not get access to fighter-only feats.

Talents marked with an asterisk add effects to a bravo's sneak attack. Only one of these talents can be applied to an individual attack and the decision must be made before the attack roll is made. This replaces trap sense.
