Vivisectionist is an Archetype of the Alchemist class in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Description[edit | edit source]

A vivisectionist studies bodies to better understand their function. Unlike a chirurgeon, a vivisectionist's goals are not related to healing, but rather to experimentation and knowledge that most people would consider evil.

Base Features[edit | edit source]

Alchemist Proficiencies[edit | edit source]

Alchemists are proficient with all simple weapons and bombs. They are also proficient with light armor, but not with shields.

Medical Discovery[edit | edit source]

At 2nd level, and then again every 2 levels thereafter (up to 18th level), a vivestctionist makes an incredible medical discovery. The DC of any saving throw called for by a discovery is equal to 10 + 1/2 the vivisectionist's level + the vivisectionist's Intelligence modifier.

Sneak Attack[edit | edit source]

If a character can catch an opponent when he is unable to defend himself effectively from her attack, she can strike a vital spot for extra damage.

The character's attack deals extra damage anytime her target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the character flanks her target. This extra damage is 1d6 and increases by 1d6 at later levels. This additional damage is precision damage and is not multiplied on a critical hit.

The character must be able to see the target well enough to pick out a vital spot and must be able to reach such a spot. A character cannot sneak attack while striking a creature with total concealment."

Advanced Talents[edit | edit source]

After 10th level, a character can choose one of the advanced rogue talents in place of a rogue talent.

Mutagen[edit | edit source]

At 1st level, an alchemist discovers how to create a mutagen that he can imbibe in order to heighten his physical prowess at the cost of his personality.

It's a standard action to drink a mutagen. Upon being imbibed, the mutagen causes the alchemist to grow bulkier and more bestial, granting him a +2 natural armor bonus and a +4 alchemical bonus to the selected ability score for 10 minutes per alchemist level. In addition, while the mutagen is in effect, the alchemist takes a –2 penalty to one of his mental ability scores. If the mutagen enhances his Strength, it applies a penalty to his Intelligence. If it enhances his Dexterity, it applies a penalty to his Wisdom. If it enhances his Constitution, it applies a penalty to his Charisma.

Throw Anything[edit | edit source]

You receive a +1 circumstance bonus on attack rolls made with thrown splash weapons.

Discovery[edit | edit source]

At 2nd level, and then again, every 2 levels thereafter (up to 18th level), an alchemist makes an incredible alchemical discovery. Unless otherwise noted, an alchemist cannot select an individual discovery more than once. Some discoveries can only be made if the alchemist has met certain prerequisites first, such as uncovering other discoveries. Only one such discovery can be applied to an individual bomb. The DC of any saving throw called for by a discovery is equal to 10 + 1/2 the alchemist's level + the alchemist's Intelligence modifier.

Poison Resistance[edit | edit source]

At 2nd level, an alchemist gains a +2 bonus on all saving throws against poison. This bonus increases to +4 at 5th level, and then again to +6 at 8th level. At 10th level, an alchemist becomes completely immune to poison.

Poison Immunity[edit | edit source]

At 10th level, an alchemist becomes completely immune to poison.

Persistent Mutagen[edit | edit source]

At 14th level, the effects of a mutagen last for 1 hour per level.
