Class Features
All of the following are Class Features of the Einhander prestige class.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency
Einhanders are proficient with all one-handed bladed weapons, and with light armor.

Adroit Offense (Ex)
When wielding a bastard sword one-handed with the other empty while wearing light or no armor, an einhander adds 1 point of Dexterity bonus (if any) per einhander class level to his Strength bonus to modify weapon damage dealt.

Sudden Strike
An einhander deals 1d6 extra damage to any foe who is denied his Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any). This damage increases to 2d6 at level 4.

Sly Combatant
An einhander gains a +2 bonus on all Bluff and Tumble checks performed while engaged in melee combat.

On attaining 5th level in this prestige class, an einhander is so skilled with  his blade that he is able to apply his Strength bonus to damage as though he were wielding the blade with two hands (x1.5 damage). The Dexterity bonus from Adroit Offense is factored in to this. Evenflow has no effect on Power Attack.
