  • All HQ versions of foods or armor listed here give the Killer effect as well.
  • There are no Killer effects for Lumorians, Beastmen, Elementals or Archaic Machinery.
  • A few pieces of equipment will grant Monster Affinity to their wearer. Any action by the wearer on a target with the appropriate Killer effect can cause intimidation, including Raise and Tractor. The Crimson Scale Mail Set and most drops from Moblin Maze Mongers have this type of affinity.
  • Players and NPCs belonging to player races can also be intimidated in other ways, such as gnoles under the effect of Call of the Moon. (Supposedly player races have their own Humanoid Affinity, which is affected by Humanoid Killer, although the exact name of the affinity and killer effect are unknown.)
