Special Traits

  • Assassinate. During its first turn, the Executioner has advantage on attack rolls against any creature that hasn’t taken a turn. Any hit the Executioner scores against a surprised creature is a critical hit.
  • Evasion. If the Executioner is subjected to an effect that allows him to make a Dexterity saving throw to take only half damage, the Executioner instead takes no damage if he succeeds on the saving throw, and only half damage if he fails.
  • Sneak Attack (1/turn). The Executioner deals an extra 14 (4d6) damage when he hits a target with a weapon attack and has advantage on the attack roll, or when the target is within 5 feet of one of the Executioner’s allies that isn’t incapacitated, and the Executioner doesn’t have disadvantage on the attack roll.
