 Creating a Killer
 Killer Class Features
All Killer's share these class features.
- Natural Intimidation
You are naturally intimidating causing dread in people just by walking past them. Killer's use their Strength ability score modifier to work out their Intimidation Skill score instead of their Charisma ability score modifier.
- Best Defence
You sometimes find that allowing the enemy to think they have won can allow you an opening to bring them severe pain. You can choose to allow an enemy to automatically hit you if they are targeting you, this must be done before any roll to hit is made, if the choice is made then the enemy automatically hits with whatever attack it had chosen and deals standard damage and effects as detailed in the power they use, once the attack has finished you may take an immediate reaction to strike them with a basic melee attack.
- Cautious Planning
You find that by watching the enemy you can pick out their strengths and weaknesses to better formulate a plan. You can use cautious planning as an encounter power.
