Constable

Constables keep order in the narrow streets and dark alleys of settlements.

Class Skills

Perception is a class skill for constables.

This alters the cavalier’s class skills.

Apprehend (Ex)

A constable gains Improved Unarmed Strike as a bonus feat and can attempt a grapple combat maneuver check in place of the attack at the end of a charge. At 2nd level, the constable receives a +1 bonus on Perception checks and combat maneuver checks to disarm, grapple, or trip opponents. At 7th level and every 5 levels thereafter, this bonus improves by 1. At 4th level, the constable does not treat crowds as difficult terrain.

This ability replaces mount.

Squad Commander (Ex)

At 3rd level, a constable can spend 1 minute laying out a plan to activate the tactician ability without having it count against his number of uses per day. The ability must be triggered within 1 hour of the plan being made, and the benefits last for 1 minute per cavalier level he has. The constable can have only one plan at a time, and if a new plan is made, any old plan is lost.

This ability replaces cavalier’s charge.

Quick Interrogator (Ex)

At 4th level, a constable can attempt a Diplomacy check to gather information in 1d6 × 5 minutes and attempt a Diplomacy or Intimidate check to change someone’s attitude in 5 rounds.

This ability replaces expert trainer.

Badge (Ex)

At 5th level, a constable’s badge becomes a powerful symbol of rules and authority. As long as he wears his badge, allies within 30 feet who can see him gain a +2 morale bonus on saving throws against charm, compulsion, and fear effects and a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls against targets the constable has challenged.

At 10th level and every 5 levels thereafter, the bonuses increase by 1.

This ability replaces banner.

Instant Order (Ex)

At 11th level, a constable can bark an order to an ally within 30 feet as a standard action. That ally can instantly take a single move or standard action to comply with the order. Taking the action dazes the ally for 1 round afterward. At 20th level, the constable can use this ability as a move action, but no more than once per round.

This ability replaces mighty charge and supreme charge.

Greater Badge (Ex)

At 14th level, a constable can hold his badge aloft as a standard action to inspire his allies to be steadfast. All allies within 30 feet gain a number of temporary hit points equal to twice the constable’s cavalier level for 10 minutes. A given ally can benefit from this ability only once per day.

This ability replaces greater banner.
