Insightful Killer (Slayer/Monk)
Not all slayers are content to only hide in the shadows. There are those that enjoy facing an opponent head on, luring them into exposing their weak points and take advantage of them. Often trained in more “open-minded” monasteries these deadly assassins incorporate many of the monk’s specialized techniques into their repertoire. (Original Concept by Christos Gurd)
Primary Class: Slayer.
Secondary Class: Monk.
Hit Dice: d10.
Bonus Skills and Ranks: The insightful killer may select three monk skills to add to his class skills in addition to the normal slayer class skills. The insightful killer gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 6 + Int modifier.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The insightful killer is proficient with all simple and martial weapons, with light armor, medium armor, and with shields (except tower shields).
Slip By (Ex): An Insightful Killer adds half his level (minimum 1) to Bluff skill checks made to feint. This ability replaces track.
Studied Target (Ex): This is exactly like the slayer ability of the same name, except that this ability is triggered when the insightful killer successfully uses his stunning fist on a target he can study that target as an immediate action, allowing him to apply his studied target bonuses against that target (including to the normal weapon damage roll). This modifies studied target.
Stunning Fist (Ex): At 3rd level, an insightful killer gains the monk’s stunning fist ability. His monk level is equal to his insightful killer level for the purpose of determining the effects of this ability. The insightful killer also adds his studied target bonus to his stunning fist save DC. This ability replaces sneak attack.
Slayer Talents: This is exactly like the slayer’s ability of the same name, except that the insightful killer is restricted from choosing ranger combat style or rogue talent as slayer talents. He may also choose from the following new talents, restricted to the Insightful Killer multiclass archetype.
Evasion (Ex): The insightful killer gains the monk’s evasion class feature.
Fast Movement (Ex): The insightful killer’s land speed is faster than the norm for her race by +10 feet. This benefit applies only when she is wearing no armor, light armor, or medium armor, and not carrying a heavy load. Apply this bonus before modifying the insightful killer’s speed because of any load carried or armor worn. Th
