Know Master (Technique)

You recognize the telltale signs of undead overlords among their slaves.

Benefit: You can spend 1 minute examining the remains of an undead creature you destroyed within the last hour. Upon doing so, you can attempt a Perception check with a DC equal to 15 + the undead creature’s Hit Dice. If you succeed, you know how the undead was created—through a spell, the create spawn ability, spontaneous generation, or another origin.

Special: If you have the Vampire Scholar feat, you might also recognize some sign of a destroyed undead being’s creator. If you determine that the undead creature was created by a vampire, you can immediately make use of your Vampire Scholar feat to determine who created it.

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.
