Wolf Among Sheep (Ex)

When wearing her gang colors, the gangbanger can control nearby crowds to her benefit. At 7th level, she gains a bonus equal to 1/2 her barbarian level on Intimidate checks to influence crowds. Enemies within 30 ft. of the gangbanger must spend 4 squares of movement to enter a space with crowds. At 10th level, the gangbangers movement is not impeded by crowds. At 13th level, the gangbanger can paralyze crowds with her presence; crowds within 100 ft. of her do not disperse as they normally would and stay put even in a fight. At 16th level, enemies in a space with crowds is always considered outflanked by the gangbanger. At 19th level, enemies in a crowd within 100 ft. of a raging gangbanger take 4d6 bludgeoning damage (as from a swarm). All these effects are fear effects affecting the crowd. A crowd immune to fear is immune to these abilities. Creatures with resistance or immunity to fear are still affected normally by the actions of the crowd. This ability replaces damage reduction.
