Liberating Critical (Technique)

Your jarring blows can cleanse your enemies’ minds of supernatural control.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +9.

Benefit: When you score a critical hit against an opponent, you can use a swift action to cast dispel magic (using your total Hit Dice as your caster level) to target mind-affecting effects currently affecting that opponent. You do not need to be aware of whether or not your opponent is currently being affected by such an effect. While the intention of this effect is to liberate mentally dominated individuals from their masters, all mind-affecting effects can be dispelled, including beneficial ones opponents might have cast on themselves. This effect functions like dispel magic in that it targets all mind-affecting effects influencing the target, starting with the highest caster level, and ends when you successfully dispel one or fail to dispel them all.

About Vampire Hunter Technique Feats

At their most basic level, vampire hunter technique feats are a mixture of fighting methods, disciplines, and stories passed down by vampire hunters successful enough to share their methods. Some are known battle tactics that fighters the world over have shared. Others meld magic and finesse to grant mortals an edge over the undead. The most dangerous invite the corruption of the undead into the hunter, allowing him to turn vampires’ powers and tools against them. The strangest rely on mysteries of the old world and possibly even those beyond to confound creatures who think themselves immortal.

Vampire hunter technique feats can only be accessed by members of the vampire hunter class or those who have the Vampire Hunter Tradition feat (or a similar ability). Unless such a feat specifically says otherwise, other characters cannot choose these feats, even if they meet the prerequisites.
