Special Abilities
Alchemy +9 (Su) +9 to Craft (Alchemy) to create alchemical items, can Id potions by touch.
Amateur Investigator (5/day) Your knowledge is more than plain smarts - it's inspired.
Prerequisites: Int 13, 1 rank in at least one Knowledge skill, no levels in a class that has the inspiration class feature.
Benefit: Like an investigator, you have the ability to augment your Knowledge, Linguistics, and Spellcraft skill checks. You gain a pool of inspiration equal to your Intelligence modifier. You can expend one use of inspiration as a free action to add 1d6 to the result of a Knowledge, Linguistics, or Spellcraft check, as long as you are trained in that skill (even if you take 10 or 20 on that check). You make this choice after the check is rolled and before the results of the roll are revealed. You can use inspiration only once per skill check. Your pool of inspiration refreshes each day, typically after you get a restful night’s sleep.
Anaesthetic At 5th level, a chirurgeon learns how to supplement uses of the Heal skill with pain-killing drugs.
He gains Skill Focus (Heal) as a bonus feat. Any use of the Heal skill that has a risk of harming the patient (such as extracting a barb) only deals the minimum damage when performed by a chirurgeon.
Bomb 5d6+5 (16/day, DC 19) (Su) Thrown Splash Weapon deals 5d6+5 fire damage.
Darkvision (60 feet) You can see in the dark (black and white only).

Hatred +1 Gain a racial bonus to attacks vs. Goblinoids/Orcs.
Healing Bomb Use cure extract as bomb, healing target of bomb (as extract) and those in splash. (min. heal)
Infused Curative At 2nd level, a chirurgeon's extracts of cure spells automatically act as infusions, and can be used by non-alchemists. When a chirurgeon prepares his extracts, he may choose to render any or all of his infused curatives inert and prepare othe
Mutagen (DC 19) (Su) Mutagen adds +4/-2 to physical/mental attributes, and +2 nat. armor for 90 minutes.
Point-Blank Shot +1 to attack and damage rolls with ranged weapons at up to 30 feet.
Precise Bombs (Su) Exclude up to 5 squares from splash damage of your bombs.

Zeitgeist Character Theme:

The Heid Eschatol movement began among the dwarves of Drakr, after the scholar Vlendam Heid published a treatise on the myths of his nation and how they continued to influence modern perceptions.
The book captured the culture’s consciousness, particularly a section that used the legend of the Lost Riders to explain the Drakran tradition of defining civilizations and eras by how they end.
In the three decades since its publication, Heid’s “On the Proper Endings of Things” has given birth to a whole field of academic study devoted to finding the perfect way to end friendships and romances, business relationships, wars, serialized literature, and even one’s own life.
Heid’s disciples refer to themselves as eschatologists, from the term for the study of the end of the world. Their popularity has only strengthened Drakr’s existing obsession with apocalyptic prophecies and doomsaying, and has raised awareness of their beliefs in other nations.
The Clergy, however, denies that the dwarven endtimes are near, and its agents take a dim view of Heid’s followers.

Icy End of the Earth (Theme Feat)
With the dire knowledge that the world shall end in ice, you do what you can to prevent such fate from befalling your allies. These acts come with a high price, as you find yourself closer to death than most.
Once per day you may stabilize a fallen comrade by touching them as a swift action. You can use this power on any creature who has negative hit points, or who has been dead for less than one full round. In order to use this ability, the creature you touch must have a complete body (thus it cannot be used on a decapitated creature, or the target of a disintegrate spell).
Once per day, you may summon a temporary zone of cold. This zone manifests in a 10-ft. radius around you, but is stationary. Creatures that start their turn in the zone (including you) take cold damage equal to your level, and while in the zone they cannot heal or gain temporary hit points.
The zone lasts until you dismiss it as a swift action, but if you start your turn outside the zone, its cold still damages you and prevents you from healing for as long as you maintain the effect. You cannot reduce the damage this does to you by any means, but other creatures’ resistances and immunities can protect them as
Special: You can acquire only one theme feat.

Short but very solidly built, Dr. Runemace has red hair and beard. His expression is serious and seldom smiles.
He wears a formal suit and top hat as well as multi-spectacles he uses to look closely at crime scenes. He often wears a doctors lab coat when on the job.
He walks with a rune covered walking stick with heavy cold iron knob.
He carries a large black medical bag with his alchemical equipment and supplies

Born in the Drakr lands, he studied and became an Alchemist-Chirurgeon. A dispute about fine points of Eschatology led to him moving to Flint in Risur, and there his expertise was hired by the RHC.
