Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level)
Smite (Su): The Silver Knight gains a smite attack, using her charisma modifier as a bonus to her attack roll (minimum +1) and her class level multiplied by her charisma modifier (minimum +1) as a bonus to damage. This smite ability does not stack with the smite ability from other classes, but it does stack with any bonuses from the favored enemy ability of the ranger. A Silver Knight can use her smite ability against shapeshifters, Undead, and evil outsiders. The Knight can use this ability twice per day starting at level 4.
Helm of Silver (Ex): Upon being accepted into the Order of Silver, the Silver Knight gains the signature item of the Order, the Helm of Silver. This helm grants an +2 Insight Bonus to Spot, Search and Listen at 1st level, a +4 bonus at 3rd level, and a +6 bonus at 5th level, this bonus stack with the bonus from the favored enemy ability of the ranger class. This Helm begins as a well worn and tarnished helm, but through his devotion to the Virtues of Honesty and Spirituality, it eventually becomes a brilliant helm of gleaming silver. At 2nd level the helm gives the Silver Knight a +2 sacred bonus to saves against gaze attacks, and at 4th level allows her to use True sight as the spell 1/week.
Bonus Virtue Feat: The Knight of Silver gains a bonus feat which may only be used on the Honesty and Spirituality feat chains.
Virtue of Silver (Su): The Silver Knight gains the ability to detect undead, shapeshifters and evil outsiders on a radius of 60 feet as a standard action at will. The Silver Knight must choose which kind of creature she is looking for when she uses this ability, and otherwise is identical to the sense evil ability of the paladin class.
