Sneak Attack (Ex): Whenever he attacks a foe who is flanked or denied his Dexterity bonus, Spawn adds 3d6 damage per strike. This can only be done from within thirty feet.

Death Attack (Ex): If he studies his prey for three rounds, Spawn can use a melee attack to strike with deadly efficiency. Spawn can take no other actions while studying his victim, and must execute the death attack within three rounds after the studying ends. If the attack hits, the victim must succeed at a fortitude save (DC 17) or be either paralyzed for 1d6+5 rounds, or killed, Spawn’s choice.

Unholy Toughness (Ex): Spawn’s undead will is so great that he can add his Charisma bonus to hit point rolls and fortitude saves.
