Tactical Leader is an Archetype of the Inquisitor class in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Description[edit | edit source]

Rather than pursuing their holy missions alone, some inquisitors see the inherent value of working with like-minded allies to accomplish mutual goals.

Base Features[edit | edit source]

Inquisitor Proficiencies[edit | edit source]

An inquisitor is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the longbow, shortbow, and the favored weapon of her deity. She is also proficient with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).

Deity Selection[edit | edit source]

A deity, also known as a god or goddess, is a being or force of incredible power capable of granting its power to mortal beings through divine magic. A deity is strongly associated with a specific alignment, several domains, and a plane (typically an Outer Sphere plane).

Orisons[edit | edit source]

Inquisitors can cast a number of Orisons, or 0-level spells. These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again.

Domain Selection[edit | edit source]

A cleric's or inquisitor's deity influences her alignment, what magic she can perform, her values, and how others see her. A cleric chooses two domains from among those belonging to her deity. A cleric can select an alignment domain (Chaos, Evil, Good, or Law) only if her alignment matches that domain.

Each domain grants a number of domain powers, dependent upon the level of the cleric or the inquisitor.

Clerics as well gain a number of bonus spells. A cleric gains one domain spell slot for each level of cleric spell she can cast, from 1st on up. Each day, a cleric can prepare one of the spells from her two domains in that slot. If a domain spell is not on the cleric spell list, a cleric can prepare it only in her domain spell slot. Domain spells cannot be used to cast spells spontaneously.

Leader's Words[edit | edit source]

Tactical leaders are skilled at speaking soothing words that keep the peace and bolster allies' resolve. A tactical leader receives a morale bonus on all Diplomacy checks equal to half his inquisitor level (minimum +1).

Judgment[edit | edit source]

Starting at 1st level, an inquisitor can pronounce judgment upon her foes as a swift action. Starting when the judgment is made, the inquisitor receives a bonus or special ability based on the type of judgment made.

At 1st level, an inquisitor can use this ability once per day. At 4th level and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor can use this ability one additional time per day. Once activated, this ability lasts until the combat ends, at which point all of the bonuses immediately end.

When the inquisitor uses this ability, she must select one type of judgment to make. As a swift action, she can change this judgment to another type.

Cunning Initiative[edit | edit source]

At 2nd level, an inquisitor adds her Wisdom modifier on initiative checks, in addition to her Dexterity modifier.

Teamwork Feat[edit | edit source]

At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor gains a bonus feat in addition to those gained from normal advancement. These bonus feats must be selected from those listed as teamwork feats. The inquisitor must meet the prerequisites of the selected bonus feat.

Swift Tactician[edit | edit source]

At 3rd level, 9th level, and 18th level, a tactical leader gains a teamwork feat as a bonus feat. He must meet the prerequisites for this feat. As a standard action, the tactical leader can grant these feats to all allies within 30 feet who can see and hear him. Allies retain the use of these bonus feats for 3 rounds plus 1 round for every 2 inquisitor levels the tactical leader has. Allies do not need to meet the prerequisites of these bonus feats.

The tactical leader can use this ability once per day at 3rd level, plus one additional time per day at 6th, 9th, 15th, and 18th level.

At 12th level, a tactical leader can use the tactician ability as a swift action.

Bane[edit | edit source]

At 5th level, an inquisitor can imbue one of her weapons with the bane weapon special ability as a swift action.

A bane weapon excels against certain foes. Against a designated foe, the weapon's enhancement bonus is +2 better than its actual bonus. It also deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against such foes.

This ability only functions while the inquisitor wields the weapon. If dropped or taken, the weapon resumes granting this ability if it is returned to the inquisitor before the duration expires.

This ability lasts for a number of rounds per day equal to the inquisitor's level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.

Second Judgment[edit | edit source]

At 8th level, whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, she selects two different judgments, instead of one. This only consumes one use of her judgment ability. As a swift action, she can change one of these judgments to another type.

Stalwart[edit | edit source]

At 11th level, an inquisitor can use mental and physical resiliency to avoid certain attacks. If she makes a Fortitude or Will saving throw against an attack that has a reduced effect on a successful save, she instead avoids the effect entirely. This ability can only be used if the inquisitor is wearing light armor, medium armor, or no armor.

Battle Acumen[edit | edit source]

At 14th level, a tactical leader can grant his judgment benefits to a single other ally within 30 feet who can see and hear the tactical leader as a standard action. These benefits last for 1 minute. A tactical leader can use this ability a number of times per day equal to his Wisdom modifier (minimum 1).

Third Judgment[edit | edit source]

At 16th level, whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, she selects three different judgments, instead of just two. This only consumes one use of her judgment ability. As a swift action, the inquisitor can change one of these judgments to another type.

True Judgment[edit | edit source]

At 20th level, an inquisitor can call true judgment down upon a foe during combat. Whenever an inquisitor uses her judgment ability, the inquisitor can invoke true judgment on a foe as a swift action. Once declared, the inquisitor can make a single attack. If the attack hits, it deals damage normally and the target must make a Fortitude save or die. The DC of this save is equal to 10 + 1/2 the inquisitor's level + the inquisitor's Wisdom modifier. Regardless of whether or not the save is made, the target creature is immune to the inquisitor's true judgment ability for 24 hours.
