Senator (Rajah Archetype)

Not every rajah is a fixture of the battlefield, ruling all the light touches by only their own will. At times such individuals are forced to rule as a part of a council, treating parliaments and council chambers as their battlegrounds.

Maneuvers Readied

In order for the senator to recover maneuvers, they must put self inspiration first, by ending an active bardic performance; if the senator has no rounds of bardic performance remaining they can instead take a point of essence burn as a standard action. By doing this a senator recovers a number of expended maneuvers equal to their rajah initiation modifier (minimum 1). Alternately, the rajah may concentrate on the akasha that flows through their body and recover a single maneuver as a standard action.

This alters the rajah’s maneuvers readied class feature.

Voice Like Thunder

The senator has the ability to deliver speeches, and other performances, with such passion and conviction that it stirs the hearts of those around her, and with such potency as to be supernatural.

This ability functions like and counts as the bard’s bardic performance ability, using the senator’s level -4 (minimum 1) as their effective bard level. When the senator ends a performance, they can reallocate their essence. This replaces royal mandate.

Grandiloquent Speech

At 3nd level the senator can select a veil that occupies the Voice slot from the list available to the fisherking. That veil is added to their class list and the senator gains the ability to shape it to the Voice slot. At 13th level they gain the ability to bind this veil. If the senator already has the ability to bind voice veils from another source they instead select a second voice veil and add it to their class list.

This ability replaces the heraldries gained at 3rd and 13th levels.

Talented Statesman

Due to years of hard won experience or a natural knack for the hidden elements of politics, the senator possesses a number of tricks for getting the better of those that stand in the way of their ambitions and strategies. Starting at 5th level any time the senator would gain a heraldry they can instead gain a feat from the following list: Blustering Bluff, Brilliant Planner, Confabulist, Cutting Humiliation, Deceitful, Misdirection Tactics, Nerve-Racking Negotiator, Persuasive, Persuasive Bribery, Sense Assumptions, Sense Relationships, Willing Accomplice

A senator need not have any of the prerequisites normally required for these feats to select them.

This ability alters heraldries.
