Royal accusers cut through baroque politics and quietly face a nation’s many threats.
This alters the inquisitor’s class skills.
This ability replaces stern gaze.
This ability replaces detect alignment.
At 3rd level, a royal accuser gains favored enemy, as the ranger class feature. He must choose his favored enemy from the following list: aberration, dragon, humanoid (orc), humanoid (shapechanger), and undead. He gains another favored enemy at 9th and 15th levels.
This replaces solo tactics and the teamwork feats gained at 3rd, 9th, and 15th levels.
At 6th level, once per day, a royal accuser can contemplate an ongoing investigation he is involved in and potentially know whether his hunches are on the right track.
This functions as augury, except if it succeeds, the royal accuser gets one of the following results in place of weal, woe, or weal and woe. The royal accuser treats his inquisitor level as his caster level.
- Correct (if the hunch is the exact truth, such as if a particular individual is responsible for a crime, or if a particular organization is behind a series of events).
- Incorrect (if the hunch is entirely off base, such as if a suspected individual had nothing to do with a crime, or a suspected organization had no interest or hand in a series of events).
- On the right track (if the hunch is partially correct, such as if a suspected individual participated in a criminal conspiracy or had foreknowledge of the crime in question, or if a suspected organization directly profited from and knew about but did not entirely orchestrate a series of events).
This replaces the teamwork feat granted at 6th level.
At 12th level, a royal accuser can use greater detect magic at will.
This ability replaces the teamwork feat granted at 12th.
At 18th level, a royal accuser’s word and intuition are greatly trusted and valued. Once per day, when using the influence system and interacting with an individual or organization with whom he has at least minor sway or is respected (rank 2), the royal accuser can treat his influence as two steps higher for the purposes of making a single request of that individual or organization. Alternatively, he can treat an individual’s attitude toward him as up to two steps higher for the purpose of such a request.
This replaces the teamwork feat granted at 18th level.
