Assassinate

Assassinate (Ex, Int): A slayer with this advanced talent can kill foes that are unable to defend themselves. To attempt to assassinate a target, the slayer must first study his target for 1 round as a standard action. On the following round, if the slayer makes a surgical attack against the target and that target is denied its Dexterity bonus to AC, the sneak attack has the additional effect of possibly killing the target. This attempt automatically fails if the target recognizes the slayer as an enemy. If the surgical attack is successful, the target must attempt a Fortitude saving throw. If the target fails this save, it dies; otherwise, the target takes the surgical attack damage as normal and is then immune to that slayer’s assassinate ability for 24 hours.
