Investigator

Alignment: Any

Mentorship Ability

Apprentices who study a mentor’s investigator class levels learns to make investigator extracts for the day. The apprentice may expend any number of spell slots during the hour of training with an alchemist mentor to create extracts of the same levels as the expended spell slots. These extracts do not need to be the same extracts his mentor creates but they must be extracts in his mentor’s formulae book. Extracts created this way use the apprentice’s Charisma regardless of what ability their mentor uses to modify their extracts. This ability does not allow an apprentice to create extracts of spell they cannot learn due to their Charisma score or level. These extracts are treated in all ways as extracts created by the apprentice and do not benefit his mentor if imbibed by his mentor. Your caster level is equal to your apprentice level, and your save DCs and concentration checks are Charisma-based. You’re considered to have the alchemist formulae list for purposes of spell trigger items.

Advanced Mentorship Ability

Apprentices who study a mentor’s investigator class levels and chooses investigator for their advanced mentorship ability for the day gains the investigator‘s investigator talent class feature. The apprentice gains one investigator talent for every three apprentice levels. The apprentice must select talents known by his mentor. When determining the effects of the apprentice’s talents, the apprentice’s effective alchemist level is equal to his apprentice level minus 3.

Cooperation Power

Apprentices who study a mentor’s investigator class levels and chooses investigator for their cooperation power may, as a free or immediate action, spend a cooperation point when they or any ally makes a skill or ability check, or spend two cooperation points when they or any ally makes an attack roll or saving throw. If they do add 1d6 to the result of that check. If this ability is used on a character already benefiting from the investigator’s inspiration class feature, instead the size of the inspiration die that character would normally use is increased by one. If the apprentice has any investigator talents that modify inspiration, they apply to this cooperation power. Choosing this cooperation power counts as gaining the inspiration class feature for the purposes of the apprentice’s approximate expertise class feature but you must have the investigator cooperation power to benefit from a feat whose prerequisites were met in this manner.
