Formidable warriors of the void, shock troopers are proud, noble figures who command loyalty and respect throughout the void. Resolute against all odds, shock troopers are never ones to shy away from a fight and are experts in the use of hardsuits and advanced weaponry, bringing awe inspiring firepower, terrifying martial prowess, and litanies of terror to bear on the enemy.
Role: Shock troopers excel at vessel boarding combat. Whether wielding powerful flamethrowers to bring death from afar, or hewing the enemy apart with buzzblades, shock troopers form the elite core of mercenary outfits, winning battles often through reputation alone.
Alignment: Most shock troopers are of lawful alignments, using their skills to bring order to an orderless galaxy. While many are good, there are those who have grown arrogant, or who became jaded after long, thankless campaigns with heavy losses and dried up treasuries. For various reasons, there are more than a few shock troopers who prowl the void as bitter reavers, evil beyond salvation. They seek to inflict pain and misery, valuing only wealth, fear, and power.
2nd-Level Alternative Class Feature
Litany (Ex): The shock trooper often charges into battle reciting ancient curses and prayers. At 2nd level, whenever a shock trooper makes a successful charge attack, she can make a free Intimidate check to demoralize her opponent, receiving a +1 circumstance bonus to her Intimidate check. This bonus increases by +1 for every four levels beyond 2nd.
4th-Level Alternative Class Feature
Hardsuit Training (Ex): At 4th level and every six levels after, a shock trooper increases your effective Strength granted by powered armor, as well as the maximum charge capacity of powered armor by +2.
6th-Level Alternative Class Feature
Assault Training (Ex): At 6th level, when wielding a basic or advanced melee weapon in one hand and a small arms ranged weapon in the other hand, attacks with that ranged weapon do not provoke attacks of opportunity from foes that you threaten with the melee weapon.
