SPECIAL ABILITIES 

Battle Charge (Ex)

The Horned Champion receives a +4 bonus on melee attack rolls on a charge (instead of the normal +2), whether mounted or on foot. Due to the Horned Champion’s offensive focus while charging, he suffers a –2 penalty to his AC after making a charge attack. This penalty applies even when making attacks against the target of his challenge.

Battle Surge (Ex)

The Horned Champion can draw upon his battle training to increase his prowess in combat. As a swift action, he can add 1/2 his Hit Dice or level (minimum 1) to all attack and damage rolls, and to all CMB and CMD checks until the beginning of his next turn. He can use this ability 10 times per day. 

Combat Pool (Ex)

The Horned Champion gains a reservoir of combat points that he can draw upon to enhance his prowess in battle. This combat pool has a number of points equal 19. As long as he has at least 1 point in his combat pool, he is considered to have the Quick Draw feat. The Horned Champion can gain 3 feats from his combat pool simultaneously for 1 minute, as a swift action. However, he must expend the required number of points for each feat. 

The Horned can spend the following combat pool points to gain the listed feats or effect.
  • 1 pointCritical Focus, Dazzling Display, Great Cleave, Improved Critical, Manyshot, Mounted Archery, Rapid Shot, Ride-By Attack, Spirited Charge, Spring Attack, Stand Still, Vital Strike, Whirlwind Attack
  • 1 pointThe Horned Champion may spend 1 combat point to remove the –2 penalty to his AC during a single use of his Battle Charge or Mighty Battle Charge ability.
  • 2 pointBleeding Critical, Deadly Stroke, Improved Precise Shot, Improved Vital Strike, Mounted Skirmisher, Penetrating Strike 
  • 3 pointCrippling Critical*, Deadly Finish†, Greater Penetrating Strike, Greater Vital Strike (*Advanced Player’s Guide, †Ultimate Combat) 

Combat Versatility

The Horned Champion gains a combat feat slot for every four Hit Dice or levels he possesses. Each day, the Horned Champion can prepare one feat that he has not learned or qualifies for in each slot. He may chose any feat from those listed as Combat Feats. The Horned Champion must meet the level or base attack bonus prerequisites of these feats, but ignores all other prerequisites. Once the a combat feat is prepared, the Horned Champion is treated as meeting all the feat’s prerequisites for the purpose of learning additional feats. 

The Horned Champion must choose and prepare his feats ahead of time by getting 8 hours of sleep and spending 1 hour in physical training. While training, the Horned Champion decides which feats to prepare. A prepared combat feat can be activated as a free action and its effect lasts until combat ends. Once a feat has been activated, it cannot be used again until the Horned Champion rests to regain his combat versatility feat slots per day. More than one prepared combat feat can be activated during combat.

Critical Specialist (Ex)

The save DCs of any effects caused by a critical hit with a weapon from the Horned Champion's chosen weapon group increases by +4. 

Deadly Critical (Ex)

Whenever the Horned Champion confirms a critical hit with a weapon from the Heavy Blade weapon group, he can increase the weapon’s critical damage multiplier by +1 as an immediate action, up to a maximum of x4. He can use this ability 3 times per day.

Deadly Strike (Ex)

The Horned Champion can concentrate his power or take careful aim and pool all of his melee or ranged attack potential into a single, deadly attack. When he does this, the Horned Champion makes a melee or ranged attack against a single target, but makes as many attack rolls as he can, based on his base attack bonus. He makes the attack rolls in order from highest bonus to lowest, as if he were making a full attack. If any of the attack rolls hit the target, the wandering phenom’s single attack is considered to have hit. For each additional successful attack roll beyond the first, the Horned Champion increases the damage of the attack by the base damage dice of the weapon. For instance, if a 14 Hit Dice or level Horned Champion attacking with a greatsword hits with all three attacks, he does 6d6 points of damage with the attack, instead of 2d6 points of damage, before adding any damage modifiers. 

Precision damage and extra damage from weapon special abilities (such as flaming) are added with damage modifiers and are not increased by this ability. If one or more rolls are critical threats, he confirms the critical once using his highest base attack bonus –5. For each critical threat beyond the first, he reduces this penalty by 1 (to a maximum of 0). The wandering phenom only misses on a deadly strike if all the attack rolls are missed. He cannot use this ability with a weapon with the scatter weapon quality (blunderbuss, etc.).

Defensive Arsenal (Ex)

The Horned Champion gains a +5 bonus to his touch AC, however, this bonus cannot exceed the sum of the enhancement bonuses of the weapon and shield that Horned Champion is currently carrying. 

Focused Challenge (Ex)

The Horned Champion gains the cavalier’s challenge ability and has selected the Heavy Blades group of weapons from those listed in the fighter’s weapon training ability. Whenever the Horned Champion uses this ability, he gains a +4 circumstance bonus on attack rolls made against the target of his challenge with any weapon from the Heavy Blades group. He also adds this bonus to any combat maneuver checks made when using Heavy Blade weapons and to his Combat Maneuver Defense when defending against disarm and sunder attempts made against Heavy Blade weapons. The Horned Champion must be wielding a weapon from the Heavy Blades weapon group to use the focused challenge ability. The Horned Champion can use this ability four times per day.

Fortification (Ex)

The Horned Champion can use his armor to shield critical areas from injury and his armor gains the moderate fortification special ability. This fortification does not stack in any way with armor that has these special abilities. In these cases the Horned Champion takes the better of the two fortifications. 

Immovable (Su)

Once per day, the Horned Champion gains a +20 bonus to one grapple check to avoid one of the following: an improved grab, a Strength check to avoid bull rush, improved bull rush, or trip, a Strength check against physical or magical effect that would move him, or any one save throw.

Indestructible (Ex)

The Horned Champion gains complete immunity to critical hits and sneak attacks while he is wearing armor. In addition, unless his armor has the fragile armor quality, it cannot be sundered while he is wearing it. 

Mighty Battle Charge (Ex)

The Horned Champion doubles the threat range of any weapons wielded during a charge while mounted or on foot. This increase does not stack with other effects that increase the threat range of the weapon. In addition, the Horned Champion can make a free bull rush, disarm, sunder, or trip combat maneuver if his charge attack is successful. This free combat maneuver does not provoke an attack of opportunity. The Horned Champion continues to suffer the –2 penalty to his AC after making a charge attack. 

Powerful Build (Ex)

The Horned Champion is considered Large when subject to a size modifier or special size modifier for a Combat Maneuver Bonus or Combat Maneuver Defense (such as during grapple checks, bull rush attempts, and trip attempts), if doing so is advantageous to him, and when determining whether a creature’s special attacks based on size (such as grab or swallow whole) can affect him. He can also use weapons designed for a creature of Large without penalty. However, his space and reach remain those of a creature of his actual size. The benefits of this racial trait stack with the effects of powers, abilities, and spells that change his size category. 

Tenacity (Ex)

The Horned Champion gains a +5 bonus on Will saves against fear and on all Intimidate skill checks made to demoralize an opponent. If the Horned Champion has the Leadership feat, he also adds this bonus to his leadership score. When the Horned Champion succeeds on an Intimidate skill check against a creature of at least two levels (or Hit Dice) lower than him, that creature must use his move action to take a 5-foot step away from the Horned Champion and becomes panicked. The Horned Champion must be within 5 feet of the creature if wielding a melee weapon, or within 10 feet if wielding a ranged weapon. 

The Horned Champion may attempt to force an opponent of higher level to take a 5-foot step, but doing so increases the Intimidate check’s DC by +1 for every level (or Hit Dice) the opponent is above his level. In addition, the Horned Champion can apply his Strength bonus to any Intimidate checks instead of his Charisma modifier.

Unstoppable (Ex)

Once per day, the Horned Champion gains a +20 to Str checks to break a door, item, or even a wall of force (Str DC 32).
