  • Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Retro is proficient with all simple plus the hand crossbow, longbow, repeating crossbow, shortbow, and the favored weapon of his deity (Rapier – Cayden Cailean). He is also proficient with light armor, medium armor, and shields (except tower shields).
  • Spells: An inquisitor casts divine spells drawn from the inquisitor spell list. he can cast any spell he knows at any time without preparing it ahead of time, assuming he has not yet used up his allotment of spells per day for the spell’s level.
    • Upon reaching 5th level, and at every third inquisitor level thereafter (8th, 11th, and so on), an inquisitor can choose to learn a new spell in place of one he already knows.
  • Domain:
    • Travel:
      • Granted Powers: Increase your base speed by 10 feet.
      • Agile Feet (Su): As a free action, you can gain increased mobility for 1 round. For the next round, you ignore all difficult terrain and do not take any penalties for moving through it. You can use this ability a number of times per day equal to 3 + your Wisdom modifier.
  • Judgment (Su): Replaced by Study Target from Sanctified Slayer (Archetype).
  • Monster Lore (Ex): The inquisitor adds his Wisdom modifier on Knowledge skill checks in addition to his Intelligence modifier, when making skill checks to identify the abilities and weaknesses of creatures.
  • Orisons: Inquisitors learn a number of orisons, or 0-level spells, as noted on Table 2–4 under “Spells Known.” These spells are cast like any other spell, but they are not expended when cast and may be used again. Orisons prepared using other spell slots, such as those due to metamagic feats, are expended normally.
  • Stern Gaze (Ex): Inquisitors are skilled at sensing deception and intimidating their foes. An inquisitor receives a morale bonus on all Intimidate and Sense Motive checks equal to 1/2 his inquisitor level (minimum +1).
  • Cunning Initiative (Ex): At 2nd level, an inquisitor adds his Wisdom modifier on initiative checks, in addition to his Dexterity modifier.
  • Detect Alignment (Sp): At will, an inquisitor can use detect chaos, evil, good, or law. he can only use one of these at any given time.
  • Track (Ex): At 2nd level, an inquisitor adds half his level on Survival skill checks made to follow or identify tracks.
  • Solo Tactics (Ex): At 3rd level, all of the inquisitor’s allies are treated as if they possessed the same teamwork feats as the inquisitor for the purpose of determining whether the inquisitor receives a bonus from his teamwork feats. his allies do not receive any bonuses from these feats unless they actually possess the feats themselves. The allies’ positioning and actions must still meet the prerequisites listed in the teamwork feat for the inquisitor to receive the listed bonus.
  • Teamwork Feat: At 3rd level, and every three levels thereafter, the inquisitor gains a bonus feat in addition to those gained from normal advancement. These bonus feats must be selected from those listed as teamwork feats. The inquisitor must meet the prerequisites of the selected bonus feat.
    • As a standard action, the inquisitor can choose to learn a new bonus teamwork feat in place of the most recent bonus teamwork feat he has already learned. In effect, the inquisitor loses the bonus feat in exchange for the new one. he can only change the most recent teamwork feat gained. Whenever he gains a new teamwork feat, the previous teamwork feat becomes set and cannot be changed again. An inquisitor can change his most recent teamwork feat a number of times per day equal to his Wisdom modifier.
  • Bane (Su): At 5th level, an inquisitor can imbue one of her weapons with the Bane weapon special ability as a swift action. She must select one creature type when she uses this ability (and a subtype if the creature type selected is humanoid or outsider). Once selected, the type can be changed as a swift action. This ability only functions while the inquisitor wields the weapon. If dropped or taken, the weapon resumes granting this ability if it is returned to the inquisitor before the duration expires. This ability lasts for a number of rounds per day equal to the inquisitor’s level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive.
  • Discern Lies (Sp): At 5th level, an inquisitor can discern lies, as per the spell, for a number of rounds per day equal to her inquisitor level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. Activating this ability is an immediate action.

  • Studied Target (Ex): At 1st level, a sanctified slayer gains the slayer’s studied target class feature. he uses his inquisitor level as his effective slayer level to determine the effects of studied target. This ability replaces judgment 1/day.
    • Slayer Studied Target (Ex):
      • A slayer can study an opponent he can see as a move action. The slayer then gains a +1 bonus on Bluff, Knowledge, Perception, Sense Motive, and Survival checks attempted against that opponent, and a +1 bonus on weapon attack rolls and weapon damage rolls against it. The DCs of slayer class abilities against that opponent increase by 1. A slayer can maintain these bonuses against only one opponent at a time; these bonuses remain in effect until either the opponent is dead or the slayer studies a new target.
      • If a slayer deals sneak attack damage to a target, he can study that target as an immediate action, allowing him to apply his studied target bonuses against that target (including to the normal weapon damage roll).
  • Sneak Attack (Ex):
    • if a sanctified slayer catches an opponent unable to defend itself effectively from his attack, he can strike a vital spot to deal extra damage. The sanctified slayer’s attack deals additional damage anytime his target would be denied a Dexterity bonus to AC (whether the target actually has a Dexterity bonus or not), or when the sanctified slayer flanks his target. This additional damage is 1d6 at 4th level, and increases by 1d6 every 3 levels thereafter. If a sanctified slayer scores a critical hit with the sneak attack, this extra damage is not multiplied. Ranged attacks count as sneak attacks only if the target is within 30 feet.
    • With a weapon that deals nonlethal damage (such as a sap, a whip, or an unarmed strike), a sanctified slayer can make a sneak attack that deals nonlethal damage instead of lethal damage. he cannot use a weapon that deals lethal damage to deal nonlethal damage in a sneak attack, even with the usual –4 penalty.
    • A sanctified slayer 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 sanctified slayer cannot use sneak attack while striking a creature with concealment. This ability replaces the later iterations of the judgment ability.
