Becoming a God Slayer[edit]

Some heroes who discover secrets of divine failure, take up the Godslayer's loathsome mantle seeking for justice, however, it's predominant primarily the presence in the Godslayers by Blackguards, Paladins of Tyranny and Slaughter, Ur-Priests, Defiants, and Warriors of Darkness..

Class Features[edit]

Anathema Cloak: (Su) A Godslayer is a void upon the divine matrix that underlies the Multiverse. He is effectively invisible to a god’s deification senses and cannot be detected by the likes of Remote Sensing or Portfolio Sense, should he come into range of either.

Antidivinty: (Ex) A Godslayer knows the cosmic secrets that fuel a deity’s power and is resistant to their inherent divinity. He takes reduced damage from divine sources such as a god’s Divine Blast or a Flame Strike spell equal to his Hit Dice + Charisma Modifier x2.

Favored Enemy (Gods): (Ex) A Godslayer knows how to kill gods and excels at fighting them. He gains a +2 to attack and damage rolls against divine beings, including the Proxies or Avatars of a deity. This also allows him to qualify for the Bane of Enemies and Death of Enemies Epic Feats, only for Gods, even if he has no other favored enemies. These bonuses increase by +2 for every Godslayer levels beyond the 1st.

Divine Spell Resistance: (Ex) A Godslayer is preternaturally inured to divine magic thanks to his despicable training. He gains a Spell Resistance of 16 + his Hit Dice against all spells cast by deities.

Smite Gods: (Ex) A Godslayer can infuse his strikes with anathematic energies 1/day at level 1. When using this ability, he gains a bonus to his Attack Rolls equal to his Charisma Modifier and deals extra vile damage on his Damage Rolls equal to his Godslayer class levels x his opponent's Divine Rank against any God, Cosmic Entity, Avatar, or Proxy. He gains one extra use of this ability per day every level beyond the 1st. Smite Gods stacks with others Smite class features.

Parallax Distortion: (Su) Starting at 3rd level, a Godslayer may generate a field of suppressive energy that interferes with a divine being’s access to the Arcane Weave. This effect acts like an Antimagic Field centered on the Godslayer, cast by a Wizard of caster level same as the Godslayer’s Hit Dice. However, this field only effects beings with Divine Rank and radiates form the Godslayer, not impeding him in the slightest and not affecting himself but it still affects his allies. A deity affected by this ability receives a Rank Check (DC 10 + Character Level + Charisma Modifier) to nullify this ability's effects each round. The effect lasts 10 minutes per Godslayer level. He can use this ability 1 + Godslayer levels per day.

Atheist Paroxysm: (Su) A 4th level Godslayer can emit an inhibitive sphere of apostolic anti-divinity. This field emanates from the Godslayer and stretches for 20 ft. per Character level. In order to affect anything inside the field (through the use of a spell-like ability, Salient Divine Ability, or anything that seems directly from the divinity of the deity, such as Domain Powers), the deity must succeed with a rank check (DC 10 + Character level + Charisma bonus) each time it tries to affect anything inside the field. Atheist Paroxysm lasts for 1 minute per level of the Godslayer. This ability can be used 1 + Godslayer levels per day.

God slaughter: (Su) A 5th level Godslayer is so mightily steeped in the lore of Divinity that he can openly defy and challenge divine entities as can no other mortal. He can make Rank Checks against deities or cosmic entities as if he had a virtual divine rank equal to his Character levels + Godslayer levels. After 20 ranks, this bonus instead increases at a rate of 1 every 3 Character levels, reflecting the massive divine power contained by Overgods and the like, whose divinity is intrinsic to the nature of Creation itself.

God blight: (Su) At 5th level, a Godslayer becomes a true bane of the divine, a theological nightmare that warps the nature of Divinity itself. Whenever he is in an area that would be affected by a deity's Divine Aura, the deity in question loses all Divine Bonuses to their Ac, Checks, Saves, Attacks, etc, and instead gains a Divine Penalty equal to the same of amount. In addition, the Godslayer gains an Anti-divine Bonus to all of his Ac, Checks, Saves, Attacks, etc, equal to the opposing god's Divine Rank. This ability can negate all Divine Ranks and may spread amongst as many deities as fall into the affected area.
