Necrotic Assassin

Necrotic Assassin
Necrotic assassins find power in a mystical union with death. Some hold the elemental lord Wind of Jewels as their patron, tough they are not organized enough to be called an order.

Class Skills: Knowledge (arcana) (Int), Knowledge (planes) (Int), Knowledge (Religion) (Int), Sense Motive (Wis), Use Magic Device (Cha).

Secret Training (Ex): A necrotic assassin adds half his class level (minimum +1) to Use Magic Device checks and to Knowledge checks to identify creatures. Any successful knowledge check the necrotic assassin makes to identify a creature will always outline its immunities, resistances, and damage reduction in addition to the normal information.

  • First Secret: Nondetection (Su) At 6th level, a necrotic assassin can use nondetection as a spell-like ability once per day as a wizard of his assassin level. At 10th, 14th, and 18th level, the assassin gains an additional daily use of the ability.
  • Second Secret: Angel of Death (Su) At 10th level, the necrotic assassin becomes a master of death. When the assassin kills a creature with a death attack, he can cause the target’s body to crumble to nothing, as the disintegrate spell. This prevents the use of raise dead.
  • Third Secret: Resurrection Sense (Su) At 14th level, a necrotic assassin senses if a creature he has slain has been restored to life and approximately where this happened. The effective caster level of this ability against anti-detection effects is the assassin’s level.
  • Fourth Secret: Soul Bind (Ex) At 18th level the necrotic assassin can trap the soul of a creature it kills within a sapphire (worth 1,000 gp/HD). This also has the effect of the angel of death ability above. When used against a target the assassin has just slain, this is a free action.
