Inquisitor Class Details | Inquisitions | Archetypes

Inquisitions

Description Source: Ultimate Magic
While inquisitors often take on the domains permitted to the clerics of the faith, they are privy to special lore not open to priests and other agents of their religion. These divine pursuits, called inquisitions, grant inquisitors the tools necessary for the fight against enemies of the faith. An inquisitor may select an inquisition in place of a domain.

If an inquisition's granted power calls for a saving throw, the DC of the save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the character's inquisitor level + her Wisdom modifier. Unless otherwise stated, the caster level for granted power spell-like abilities is equal to the inquisitor's class level.

Inquisitions are intended for inquisitors, not for other classes that give access to domains. While a cleric or other domain-using class can select an inquisition in place of a domain (if appropriate to the character's deity), inquisitions do not grant domain spell slots or domain spells, and therefore are much weaker choices for those classes. These other classes use the appropriate class level as their inquisitor level for the purpose of inquisition granted powers (clerics use their cleric level as their inquisitor level, and so on).

Anger Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 41 (Amazon)
Deities Gorum, Rovagug.

Granted Powers: Holy (or unholy) rage, granted by your patron deity, ensures that when you fight, the battle ends with a bloody victory.

Hateful Resort (Ex): Once per day, as an immediate action after you have been hit with a melee attack, you can make a melee attack against the creature that hit you. This melee attack is at your highest attack bonus, even if you've already attacked in the round.

Divine Anger (Ex): At 6th level, you gain the ability to rage like a barbarian. Your effective barbarian level for this ability is your inquisitor level – 3. If you have levels in barbarian, these levels stack when determining the effect of your rage. You do not gain any rage powers from this granted power, though if you have rage powers from another class, you may use them with these rages. You can rage a number of rounds per day equal to your Wisdom bonus, plus 1 round for every inquisitor level above 4th.

Banishment Inquisition

Source Blood of Angels pg. 26 (Amazon)
Deities Iomedae, Sarenrae, Torag.

Granted Powers: Your devotion to your deity is matched only by your hatred for fiends. You know the rites to cast evil outsiders back to the realms from which they hail.

Righteous Awe (Su): Whenever you make an unarmed touch attack against an evil creature, it must succeed at a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 your inquisitor level + your Wisdom modifier) or become shaken for 1d4 rounds. If the creature touched is an evil outsider, it becomes frightened instead of shaken. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Dismissive Touch (Sp): At 8th level, you can cast dismissal once per day as a spell-like ability (caster level equal to your inquisitor level) upon making a successful unarmed touch attack against an evil outsider. The DC to save against this ability increases by 2.

Conversion Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 41 (Amazon)

Swaying Word (Sp): At 8th level, once per day you may speak a word of divinely inspired wisdom that causes a single creature to switch its alliance to you.

Crime Inquisition

Source Ultimate Intrigue pg. 28
Deities Calistria, Norgorber

Granted Powers: Your connections to the criminal underworld run deeper than the physical, and your spiritual criminality grants you underhanded powers.

Criminal Minds (Sp): You can touch a creature and fill its mind with criminal impulses. This otherwise functions as per crime of opportunity, though a target that fails its saving throw and acts on an impulse gets those desires out of its system and becomes immune to the effects of your criminal minds ability for 24 hours. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier (minimum 1).

Thief ’s Soul (Ex): At 8th level, you gain Improved StealAPG, Greater StealAPG, and Quick StealAPG as bonus feats, even if you don’t meet the prerequisites.

Damnation Inquisition

Source Blood of Fiends pg. 27 (Amazon)
Deities Asmodeus, Pharasma, Zon-Kuthon.

Granted Powers: The prospect of an afterlife filled with torment can cause even the most stalwart to blanch—at least for a moment.

Fear the Flames (Su): You can give a creature you can see within 60 feet one chance to avoid an eternity of suffering by ordering it to carry out any one simple action that would take no more than 1 round to complete. Good and neutral creatures that refuse become shaken for 1 round (Will negates), while evil creatures that obey gain a +2 morale bonus on all rolls and checks made for 1 round. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier. This is a language-dependent, mindaffecting effect.

Collector of Souls (Sp): At 8th level, once per day as a standard action, you call forth an illusory fiend and order it to temporarily drag a living and sentient creature into an afterlife of pain and misery. This otherwise acts identically to phantasmal killer, except targets that fail their Fortitude saving throws become paralyzed for a number of rounds equal to 1d4 + your inquisitor level instead of dying.

Excommunication Inquisition

Deities N/A

Excommunicate (Su): At 8th level, once per day, you can silence a creature within 30 feet as a standard action. A Will save against DC = 10 + 1/2 your inquisitor level + your Wisdom modifier negates the effect. A creature that fails its save gets a second save 1 round later. If it fails the second save, the target cannot speak, provide verbal components for spells, make use of language-dependent effects, write, pantomime, or take any other action meant to communicate anything more complex than a simple affirmative or negative for 1 day.

Fate Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 41 (Amazon)
Deities Nethys, Norgorber, Pharasma.

Granted Powers: Fate is a powerful tool for those who dole out justice for their deity. You can read the strands of fate, and those strands guide your endeavors.

Augury (Sp): Once per day, you can use augury as a spell-like ability.

Agent of Fate (Su): At 8th level, when you use your augury spell-like ability, you gain a benefit that lasts until the end of your next combat. If the result was “weal,” all curing effects used on you cure an additional +1d10 hit points. If the result was “woe,” your melee attacks deal an additional +1d6 points of damage. If the result is “weal and woe” or “nothing,” you gain a +2 insight bonus to your Armor Class.

Granted Powers: Only a passionate and righteous will such as yours can ensure that justice will be properly done.

Fire of Belief (Sp): You can unleash a gout of holy or unholy flame that sears one target within 30 feet as a ranged touch attack. The target takes 1d6 points of fire damage plus half your inquisitor level (minimum +1). If you are good, the flames only harm nongood targets. If you are evil, the flames only harm nonevil targets. If you are neither good nor evil, when you gain this ability you must decide whether the flames harm only nongood or nonevil targets; once you make this decision, it cannot be changed (though if your alignment changes, the effect of the flames changes appropriately). You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Fervent Action (Ex): At 8th level, once per day as a swift action, you can make a single melee attack at your highest attack bonus, move up to your speed, or cast a prepared inquisitor spell (of a spell level up to one lower than the highest level spell you can cast) as per Quickened Spell.

Final Rest Inquisition

Source Champions of Purity pg. 22 (Amazon)
Deities Iomedae, Pharasma, Sarenrae

Granted Powers: The dead have paid their dues; there is no need, and no excuse, for them to walk. You protect their rest personally.

Unravel Animation (Su): At 8th level, when you activate your bane ability with undead as the creature type, you can choose for your weapon to instead gain the disruption weapon special ability. The DC to resist this effect is equal to 10 + 1/2 your inquisitor level + your Wisdom modifier.

Deities Abadar, Asmodeus, Calistria, Desna, Erastil, Gorum, Gozreh, Iomedae, Lamashtu, Nethys, Norgorber, Pharasma, Rovagug, Sarenrae, Shelyn, Torag, Urgathoa, Zon-Kuthon.

Granted Powers: Often it is hard to tell heretics from the faithful. You use duplicity, stealth, and the heretics' own arguments to root them out and bring them to justice.

Righteous Infiltration (Ex): You use your Wisdom modifier instead of your Charisma modifier when making Bluff and Intimidate checks.

Blessed Infiltration (Ex): At 4th level, when you make a Bluff, Diplomacy, or Stealth check, you may roll twice and take the more favorable result. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Wisdom bonus.

Word of Anathema (Sp): At 8th level, once per day, you can speak a word of anathema against a single creature within 60 feet (Will negates). This acts as bestow curse and lasts for 1 minute, giving the target a –4 penalty on attack rolls, saves, ability checks, and skill checks.

Illumination Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 43 (Amazon)
Deities Desna, Erastil, Sarenrae.

Granted Powers: Many times an inquisitor's greatest weapon is pure and unflinching illumination; errors are often illuminated by light and wisdom.

Illuminating Touch (Sp): You cause your hand to shimmer with divine radiance, allowing you to touch a creature as a standard action and give it a bonus equal to 1/2 your inquisitor level on a single Will saving throw, Knowledge check, Perception check, or Sense Motive check. This ability lasts for 1 hour or until the creature chooses to apply the bonus to a roll. You can use this ability to grant the bonus a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Aura of Enlightenment (Su): At 4th level, you can create a 30-foot-radius aura of normal light. Allies in this aura gain a +2 insight bonus on skill checks.

These rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Imprisonment Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 42 (Amazon)
Deities Abadar, Asmodeus, Torag.

Granted Powers: Sometimes it is better to capture foes than to kill them—whether your intention is to punish them for their crimes or to torture them for information.

Caging Strike (Su): With a devastating weapon strike, spectral chains wrap around your target for a short period of time. Whenever you confirm a critical hit with a melee or ranged weapon attack (including spells that require attack rolls), you can choose to also entangle that target for 1d4 rounds (Fortitude negates). You may use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Justice Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 43 (Amazon)
Deities Iomedae, Pharasma.

Granted Powers: Some must learn that to submit to one's fate often means submitting to your form of justice.

Judicious Force (Su): If you or an ally within 10 feet makes a critical threat with a melee or ranged attack, as an immediate action you may add +4 to the confirmation roll. This does not stack with the Critical Focus feat. You may use this ability a number of times per day equal to your Wisdom bonus.

Chains of Justice (Su): At 6th level, once per day, you can bind an opponent within 60 feet to you with spectral chains (Will negates). When you take damage from an enemy, the bound target takes this damage as well. Whenever the bound target takes damage from you or one of your allies, you take this damage as well. You and the target are not physically bound to each other, and either can end the connection by breaking the line of effect or exceeding the ability's

Oblivion Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 43 (Amazon)
Deities Desna, Lamashtu, Pharasma, Zon-Kuthon.

Granted Powers: Some inquisitors believe that without faith there is only oblivion. But there are some divine servants who know enough about the darkness that lies beyond faith to use it as a tool… and a weapon.

Order Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 43 (Amazon)

Mantle against Chaos (Sp): You can use protection from chaos on yourself or another creature as a spell-like ability. You can use this ability for a number of minutes per day equal to your inquisitor level (minimum 1). This duration does not need to be consecutive, but it must be used in 1 minute increments.

Persistence Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 43 (Amazon)

Beast Ride (Su): At 4th level, once per day as a standard action, you can vacate your body and inhabit that of any creature belonging to the animal type within 30 feet for a number of rounds up to your inquisitor level. While you are possessing an animal in this way, your own body becomes helpless and unaware. You can travel any distance from your body so long as you remain on the same plane, and can return to your own body as a free action at any time. If the animal or your body takes damage, or you attempt to make the animal attack or do anything out of character, the effect immediately ends and you return to your own body.

Body Snatch (Sp): At 10th level, once per day as an immediate action upon falling unconscious because of dropping below 0 hit points, you can cast your soul from your body and attempt to occupy the body of another creature within 30 feet. This ability otherwise functions identically to magic jar except that your actual body serves as the receptacle and you suppress the consciousness of your target rather than casting it out. Your body continues to bleed as normal unless it is somehow stabilized, and if its hit points drop to a negative number equal to your Constitution score, the magic jar effect prematurely ends and you die as normal.

Deities Abadar, Erastil, Nivi Rhombodazzle, Shelyn

Granted Powers: Some hunt down secrets, but you focus on the search for more tangible items.

Focused Search (Ex): Once per day, you may designate a person or object as your focus. This takes 1 minute of concentration, during which time you must either picture this item or person if familiar to you, or meditate on the item’s or person’s description if not. Until you choose a new focus, you gain a bonus equal to half your inquisitor level on Perception checks to see or hear your focus, or when using Survival to track your focus or a creature with your focus in its possession. This bonus stacks with that gained from the track special ability.

Revelation Inquisition

Source Blood of Angels pg. 27 (Amazon)

Burn Shroud (Su): As a standard action, you can make an unarmed touch attack against a creature. The target takes 1d4 points of fire damage + 1/2 your inquisitor level (minimum 1). If the target is currently the subject of a polymorph effect that changes its appearance (such as by alter self, shapechange, or an innate shapechanging ability such as that possessed by doppelgangers), it instead takes 1d6 points of fire damage + 1/2 your inquisitor level (minimum 1). You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.

Reveal Form (Su): At 8th level, once per day as a standard action, you can invoke the name of your deity and order one shapechanged target within 30 feet to reveal its true form.

This is a mind-affecting compulsion effect.

Granted Powers: You have learned to keep your own secrets close, and your enemies’ secrets closer.

Detect Secrets (Su): You have learned how to detect any of a creature’s secrets, not just its thoughts. Whenever you cast detect anxieties, detect desires, or detect thoughts or use any of those spells as a spell-like ability, you can choose to gain the effects of one of the other two spells instead. You are never overwhelmed by a target of these spells that has a high ability score.

Closed Book (Sp): At 8th level, it becomes difficult for your foes to unveil your secrets. You are constantly under the effect of nondetection, as if you cast the spell on yourself.

Sin Sense (Su): As a full-round action, you can determine which sin most strongly influences a target by quickly reading its mind. Once you learn this fact, you gain a +4 bonus on your next Charisma-based skill check made against the target as long as it somehow incorporates a temptation that relates to that sin. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier. This is a mindaffecting effect.

Indulge (Su): At 8th level, once per day as a standard action, you can awaken a creature’s vice and overwhelm its senses with urgency. You must decide to use this ability before using your sin sense ability on a creature, and the target receives a Will save to negate the effect. If the creature fails its saving throw, for the next 24 hours, whenever the affected creature is given an opportunity to indulge in its favored sin, that creature must yield to the impulse or make a second Will saving throw to avoid becoming sickened for 1 minute. This is a mind-affecting effect.

Spellkiller Inquisition

Source Ultimate Combat pg. 1 (Amazon)
Deities Any (with GM approval).

Granted Powers: You gain the Disruptive feat as a bonus feat (even if you do not meet the prerequisites). When you defeat an enemy (whether by reducing it to 0 or fewer hit points, taking the enemy captive, or accepting a truce), you gain a +2 sacred or profane bonus to AC for 1 minute per level. You gain a sacred bonus if you are good, profane if you are evil; if you are neutral, you choose either sacred or profane when you select this inquisition. After you choose which type of bonus you gain, you cannot change the bonus type. When you hit a creature with levels of alchemist or any arcane spellcasting class, or that uses spell-like abilities, you can end this effect to stagger that creature.

Hallowed Rite (Su): At 8th level, you gain the ability to conduct a sacred funeral rite. This rite takes 1 day, during which you perform the necessary chants and prayers and burn incense. At the end of the rite you must oversee the burial of the corpse. The burial must take place within 24 hours of the preparation or the ritual fails. Once the body is interred, it cannot be turned into an undead creature, as if it were under the effect of a hallow spell (caster level equal to your inquisitor level).

Truth Inquisition

A mishap or an accident appropriate to the environment occurs, such as a branch falling on the creature, rocks falling from the ceiling, or some other nonmagical misfortune; regardless of the cause, the mishap deals 1d6 points of damage + 1 point for every two inquisitor levels you possess (Reflex half).

Effects that kill you or do not reduce you to negative hit points (such as ability damage or drain, negative levels, and disintegrate) do not trigger this ability.

Zeal Inquisition

Source Ultimate Magic pg. 44 (Amazon)
Deities Erastil, Nethys.

Granted Powers: An inquisitor needs unyielding zeal in order to make sure her deity's work is done.

Zealous Surge (Sp): Once per day, when you are reduced to 0 or fewer hit points, you heal a number of hit points equal to your inquisitor level + your Wisdom modifier.

Scourge of the Enemy (Ex): At 8th level, select one religion that is a rival or opponent of your religion. You treat members of this religion as if they were your favored enemy (as the ranger class ability), gaining a +2 bonus on the appropriate rolls. At 13th level, these bonuses increase to +4, and at 18th level, the bonuses increase to +6. These bonuses do not stack with other favored enemy bonuses (use the highest bonus that applies).
