TACTICS

Before Combat The slayer either hides for days, waiting for a shot, or uses the hat of disguise to appear like a friendly face and get close before attacking.

During Combat The slayer always stays at maximum range (50 feet) for their sneak attacks. They are content to kill or seriously harm with a sneak attack and then make their escape, usually over dangerous cliffs or other drop offs.

ABOUT

Elves hating orcs is nothing new, but the dead eye takes that hatred to homicidal lengths. They see no difference between good and evil orcs— raiders and shepherds alike are anathema. They are consumed with death, wanting every last orc to suffer as they have suffered.
