Weapon and Armor Proficiency

Canny rogues are proficient with all simple weapons, plus the hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, and short sword. They are not proficient with any armor or shields.

Canny Defense (Ex)

When wearing light encumbrance and wearing no armor and not using a shield, a canny rogue adds her Intelligence bonus as a dodge bonus to CMD and Armor Class while wielding a melee weapon. If a canny rogue is caught unarmed or is flat-footed or otherwise denied her Dexterity bonus, she also loses this bonus. A canny rogue with the Improved Unarmed Combat feat is never considered unarmed. This replaces evasion.

The following rogue talents complement the canny rogue archetype: assault leader, befuddling strike, finesse rogue, offensive defense.
