Tumble is the ability to dive, roll, somersault, flip, and so on.

Modifying ability: Dexterity

Classes: Bard, Monk, Rogue, Swashbuckler; Arcane trickster, Assassin, Duelist, Harper agent, Invisible blade, Shadow Thief of Amn, Shadowdancer

Requires training: Yes

Check: Tumbling past opponents without prompting an attack of opportunity is a check against DC of 15. This makes a character with a modified tumble skill of 14+ immune to attacks of opportunity from moving.

Special: Armor check penalty is applied to this skill; the character also receives +1 bonus to AC for every ten ranks in the skill. This is a dodge bonus to AC; however, it does not count towards the +20 cap on dodge enhancement bonuses.

Use: Automatic
