Kin Slayer (Elf, Hunter Archetype)

For centuries, elves and drow have harbored a deep seeded hatred of the other. While elves rarely seek out the drow, their black-skinned cousins often make expeditions to the surface world with the intent of slaying them. On rare occasions, such cruel slaughter gives rise to a single elven survivor whose vengeance knows no bounds. These kin slayers seek to become more like their foul kin in an attempt to understand them, and in turn more easily destroy them. Class FeaturesThe kin slayer has the following class features.Deep Magic (Sp)

A kin slayer is adept at using the innate magical abilities of the drow. She can use dancing lights, darkness, and faerie fire, once each per day as a spell-like ability, using her kin slayer level as her caster level. This ability replaces wild empathy.Drow Focus (Su)

At 1st level, a kin slayer gains a limited ability to take on the aspect of the drow as a swift action. This functions as the animal focus class feature, except that the kin slayer always applies the drow aspect to herself, and there is no limit to this ability's duration. She can end this ability as a free action.

When a kin slayer uses this ability, her body takes on cosmetic aspects of a drow, such as black skin, white hair, and oddly colored eyes; these changes do not grant her any abilities other than what is stated hereafter, and end when she ends the ability. This physical change is a polymorph effect, though the effects of the drow focus are not.

At 1st level, the kin slayer gains darkvision to a range of 60 feet and a +2 enhancement bonus to Dexterity. At 8th level, she gains spell resistance equal to 6 plus her kin slayer class levels, and her darkvision range improves to 120 feet. At 15th level, the kin slayer gains a +2 enhancement bonus to Charisma, and her spell resistance improves to 11 plus her kin slayer class levels.

In addition, the kin slayer gains Undercommon as a bonus language. This language is constant and does not end when this ability ends. This ability replaces animal companion and animal focus.

Everdark Training (Ex)

A kin slayer counts her total kin slayer level as both druid levels and ranger levels, and as a drow for the purpose of qualifying for feats, traits, and any options that modify or improve a drow. This ability replaces nature training.

Precise Hunter (Ex)

At 2nd level, a kin slayer gains either Precise Shot as a bonus feat or chooses to deal 1d6 points of precision damage with her melee attacks anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the kin slayer flanks her target. She does not need to meet the prerequisites for the Precise Shot feat.
