Inquisitor Changes
Here is a list of changes I could find for the Inquisitor class.

-Acrobatics, Escape Artist, Handle Anima, Linguistics have all been removed from being class skills.

-Crossbow, hand crossbows and repeating crossbows have been added to their proficiency

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 her inquisitor level (minimum +1).

Here's the interrogation theme people wanted

Detect Alignment (Sp):
At will, an inquisitor can use detect chaos, detect evil, detect good, or detect law. She can only use one of these at any given time.

More interrogating!

-Tactical feats renamed to Teamwork feats

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.

-Stalwart instead of Evasion

Stalwart (Ex):
At 11th level, an inquisitor can use mental and physical resiliency to avoid certain attacks. If she makes a Fortitude or Will saving throw against an attack that has a reduced effect on a successful save, she instead avoids the effect entirely. This ability can only be used if the inquisitor is wearing light armor, medium armor, or no armor. A helpless inquisitor does not gain the benefit of the stalwart ability.

It's evasion but for Fort and Will saves instead of Reflex. More thematic

I have not looked through the spell list for changes.

They also have repeater crossbows as proficient weapons this is confirmed by Jason on another thread.

Can you link that one? I'll put it in there with a source.

Here he says the crossbows should be repeating crossbows. They already get crossbows because of simple weapon prof.

edit: Track is also not a new ability. They got the same thing before.

Tossed that in there.


I made one the same time as you del Ferro, but the post monster ate it. When will I learn?

These changes seem to make sense. I suppose it would be cool to have another class with rogue-like abilities, but the Inquisitor wasn't the class to do it with.


PLEASE change the Inquisitor name to Avenger, I am begging you Paizo! It's much better than Inquisitor.

Are you kidding? I think of all the new classes they are the best named.


I like the name Inquisitor myself. The only one I would change is, um, gulp, oracle

Cool in general; but add a ranged tactical feat or two. What's the point of giving them proficiency with all ranged weapons, then making no tactical feats that compliment these ranged weapons? Team/tactical feats are more-or-less an inquistor "thing". I am having to house rule some in just so the Inquisitor in our party has more to do with that line.

Too many require melee or shield.

That is a good point Thalin. Maybe like

Archery Barrage
If you are adjacent to an ally who is using a ranged weapon you receive +1 to hit and attack.


I like the name and the class in general.
But -as it is mentioned in an other discussion- I find it quiet disturbing that they took linguistic away as an class skill. In my opinion that makes no sense because an Inquisitor is -not only by name- trained in discovering lies, may they be said or written.
Escape Artist is not such a great loss IMO, as far as I can remember my history lessons back in school, the Inquisitors themselfe where not as often in irons as their "clients".

Look up the Inquisitors of Cheliax. Notice the asmodeus holy symbol on the class page. Inquisitor makes sense.

Anyone who suggests changing the Oracle name should have to deal with... the Inquisition! Couldn't help it :D

No one expects the Varisian Inquisition.
