Assassinate [General] Prerequisites: Sneak Attack +3d6Benefit: If you study a target for 3 rounds while they are unaware that you are potentially hostile and then make a sneak attack that successfully deals sneak attack damage while they are flatfooted, the target must immediately make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + 1/2 hit dice + your Intelligence modifier) or immediately die. This is considered a [Death] effect, and even if the target succeeds on their Fortitude save the attack is considered a confirmed critical hit that also doubles the amount of sneak attack dice you deal. While studying the victim, you can undertake other actions so long as your attention stays focused on the target and the target does not detect you or recognize you as an enemy. Once you have completed the 3 rounds of study, you must make use of this feat within the next 3 rounds. Special: You may reduce the time required to study the target at the end of each round of study by making a Spot check with a DC equal to 20 + the target's hit dice + their Wisdom modifier. If you succeed on the check, you count as having studied the target for 3 rounds for the purpose of this feat, and may continue studying the target on a failed check. If you make the assassination attempt before 3 rounds end, a successful saving throw does not result in an automatic critical strike nor in doubled sneak attack dice.
