Class Features[edit]

All of the following are class features of the Sworn Slayer.

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Sworn slayers are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with all armor, and with shield (except tower shield).

Sworn Foe (Ex): At 1st level, the sworn slayer dedicates his life to the destruction of creatures of a specific type, gaining a specialized bonus against those creatures. The sworn slayer chooses a monster type (such as aberration, humanoid, or undead). Against creatures of his chosen type, he gains a +1 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks, as well as weapon damage rolls. This bonus stacks with those from a ranger's favored enemy ability. This bonus increases to +2 at 3rd level and to +3 at 5th level.

Animosity (Su)At 2nd level, the sworn slayer can chose to focus his anger and hatred on a particular kind of creature. The Sworn slayer chooses a specific monster kind from among those of his sworn foe type as the target of his animosity. Against this specific kind of creature the sworn slayer gains an additional +3 bonus on Bluff, Listen, Sense Motive, Spot, and Survival checks. He also gains an additional +3 bonus on weapon damage rolls. This bonus stacks with the bonus from his sworn foe ability as well as any favored enemy bonuses from ranger levels. At 4th level, this bonus increases to +5.

Determination (Ex): Also at 2nd level, the sworn slayer gains a +2 bonus on all saving throws against the special attacks, spells, and spell-like abilities of creatures of his sworn foe type. At 4th level, this bonus increases to +4.

Nemesis (Su):At 3rd level the sworn slayer gains the Nemesis Feat even if he does not meet all of its prerequisites. The sworn slayer senses his favored enemy rather than a favored enemy.

Slayer Attack (Su): At 5th level, the sworn slayer gains the ability to study a particular creature of his sworn foes's kind in order to kill or destroy it with a single attack. If the sworn slayer studies his foe for 3 rounds and then makes a single attack with a melee weapon or ranged weapon within 30 feet that successfully deals damage, the attack has the additional effect of possibly killing (if alive) or destroying (if construct or undead) the target. While studying his foe, the sworn slayer can undertake other action so long as his attention stays focused on the target and the target does not detect the sworn slayer or recognize him as an enemy. If the victim of suck an attack fails a Fortitude save (DC10+ the sworn slayer's class level +the sworn slayer's Int modifier) against the slayer's attack, it dies or is destroyed. If the victim's saving throw succeeds the attack is just a normal attack. Once the sworn slayer has completed 3 rounds of study, he must make a slayer attack within the next 3 rounds. If the sworn slayer attempts a slayer attack and it fails or if the sworn slayer does not launch the attack within 3 rounds of completing the study, 3 new rounds of study are required before he can attempt another slayer attack.
