Before he is allowed to advance a level, a Slayer must have killed one of the 'Slain', specified in his new title, unaided. This means he must do all of the damage necessary to kill the creature; If a Bulette has 72hp, the Slayer must inflict all 72hp of damage himself.
If a Slayer has enough experience to progress a level but has not defeated a 'Slain', any experience gained is added to his total as normal, but he stays on his current level. A Slayer with 500000XP who has not yet defeated a Kobold is still on level 1. (The DM may adjust the titles if some creatures do not inhabit his world; Then again, he may not ; ]

The similarity between this character and any other, even those created by companies with g, w and other letters in their names, is... is... coincidental?... Hmmm...
