SPECIAL ABILITIES

Arcane Attack (Su)

As a standard action, a zurkhan enforcer can spend 1 Resolve Point to use a weapon imbued with the rune of the eldritch knight to make an attack that strikes true. This attack ignores all cover and concealment, including total concealment (though you must at least be aware of a creature’s presence to target it with this attack). If the attack is a ranged attack, the target must be within the first range increment. The attack only affects the selected target, even if it normally affects an area or multiple targets.

Guard’s Protection (Ex)

When an ally adjacent to the zurkhan enforcer is damaged by an attack, it can use its reaction to intercede. The enforcer takes half the damage, and its ally takes the other half. This has no effect on spells, and any conditions delivered by the attack apply to both the enforcer and its chosen ally.

Kill Shot (Ex)

As a standard action, a zurkhan enforcer can make a single attack against an enemy. If the attack hits and does not kill the target, it can expend 1 Resolve Point to force the creature to succeed at a Fortitude save or die. Once this ability has been used on a creature, that creature is immune to the enforcer’s kill shot for 24 hours.

Power of Legend (Su)

As a move action when wielding a magic weapon or a weapon imbued with the rune of the eldritch knight, a zurkhan enforcer can spend 1 Resolve Point to end one of the following conditions affecting it: bleeding, burning, confused, exhausted, fatigued, flat-footed, off-target, shaken, or sickened. Alternatively, it can spend 1 Resolve Point to change the cowering condition to the frightened condition or change the frightened condition to the shaken condition. In this case, the new condition lasts for the same duration the original condition would have and can’t be further affected by this ability.

Rapid Recovery (Ex)

A zurkhan enforcer can spend Resolve Points to ignore detrimental conditions. As a move action, it can spend 1 Resolve Point to suppress one of the following conditions for 10 minutes: exhausted, fatigued, frightened, nauseated, shaken, sickened, or staggered . After 10 minutes, if the condition’s duration hasn’t ended, the condition’s effects return. The enforcer can suppress only one condition at a time.

Rune of the Eldritch Knight (Su)

A zurkhan enforcer can imbue a weapon with a magic sigil, the rune of the eldritch knight, allowing the weapon to act as a magic weapon for the purposes of bypassing DR and affecting incorporeal creatures. This takes 10 minutes, and the enforcer can imbue only a single weapon at a time. If the enforcer imbues a new weapon with the rune of the eldritch knight, any previously imbued weapon loses this benefit.

Secret of the Archmagi (Su)

A zurkhan enforcer can imbue two weapons with the rune of the eldritch knight. In addition to the normal benefits, the runes grant the weapons one or more of the following weapon fusions of your choice: bane, corrosive, ethereal, flaming, frost, holy, merciful, shock, thundering, or unholy. The enforcer can grant no more than 10 total levels’ worth of fusions between the two weapons, and the bane fusion counts as a 10th-level fusion for this purpose.
