Inquisitor via Joel Abercrombie


Advanced Player's Guide Playtest General Discussion


I am hopeful that with the new Inquisitor class we can play characters as interesting and exciting as the Inquisitors in Joel Abercrombie's First Law Series. If you haven't tried these books I highly recommend them. Abercrombie is a former RPG table top gamer and his characters are wildly imaginative and different from your standard Dragonlance or Drow-angst ridden-Ranger styled fiction. One such character is a crippled Inquisitor/ Torturer who has 3 minions to do his dirty work. This style of Inquisitor is governmental and not religious. Closer to a police state secret service authority.

We all enjoy the Spanish Inquisition styled Religious background character but I think we can push the Inquisitor for Pathfinder further.


As a fellow fan of Joe Abercrombie's books I agree - the representation of Glotka and the Inquisition are fantastic... think it might befit more a Prestige Class, rather than base - many of the Practicals used by the Inquisition in the books seem to come from a rich and varied backgrounds and pasts [with the skills to reflect those]... so it would seem more likely that an Inquisitor is something PC's/NPC's would become rather than begin life as...

Just my 2 runes worth


With a nick name like Black Dow you must be a fan!

And I like your ideas with the practicals!
