It seems odd that, given all the bonuses to Intimidate this class gets, epecially when making sudden appearances, that only the Avenger actally gets Intimidate as a class skill.
I realise that each specialisation needs a different skill list to a certiain extent, and that class skuills aren't that big a deal, but it seems odd. I would have thought the Stalker at least should also get it.

Yeah, that really struck me. It's kind of like if the Ranger, whose class gets situational bonuses to survival, didn't have survival as a class skill.
Also seems weird that your "social" persona doesn't always get one of the social skills. What if your alter ego is the gruff butcher who doesn't care about other people's problems (and uses intimidate to deal with most social interaction), but by night, you become the kindhearted rogue who steals from the rich and gives to the poor?
When I looked through the skill list the first thing I thought was, "does the class have all the necesary social skills...wait, really? The class whose flavor role typically involves inspiring fear in the heart of evil does not have intimidate? That's just weird."
Put me down as another who thinks that intimidate should be a class skill.
For a Warlock who wanted to use Intimidate, I would probably get the Bruising Intellect trait to take advantage of the high INT score. Since the trait also make Intmidate a class skill, getting it as a feature of the class probably isn't as important for me as it would be for the other Vigilante types. But I know not everyone uses Traits.
