Rules for Inquisitors of Minor Gods

Milani specifically in my case, but also in general.

Grand Lodge 4/5

Gods and Magic and Faiths of Purity both define Milani's alignment, domains and favoured weapon. edit: In order to play such a character in PFS, you should bring the APG and one of those sources (or prints of the relevant pages from a watermarked PDF of each book) to each game. What other rules were you wondering about?

I have that. I don't have her (or any of the minor gods, which is what I'm looking for) inquisitions. Basically, I'm looking for a source for all of those.

And yes, my laptop is down so I don't have access to the APG right now.

And yes, this should have been in the advice rather than here.

last time I checked, an inquisitor can take either a domain or an inquisition. If none of the minor deities have matching inquisitions, you'd have to take a cleric domain.

Ah, unfortunately in that case:

Thats only for the inquisitions in UC. You can still use the ones from UM(though don't know why you would domains are better even with out the spells).

And my question comes down to "well, subdomains have been spelled out for minor dieties, how about inquisitions". Yes, there is a library of additional materials. ALL I'm asking for is if anyone knows specifically were to look.

Thanks for telling me, as of now, nowhere. I'm looking for someone to say somewhere specific so I can find and buy said book. Additional resources is nice...but, fair enough I guess.

No book exsists is what we are telling you. If one does it is not a Pazio product, therefor not PFS legal so no reason to mention it. The only resources that are legal are in Additional Resources section and only the parts that are legal within them.

True, my mistake.

That's what I was afraid of.

I am unfamilar with your God, but if you know the domains it should be easy to match up an Inquisition from UM. There is an Inquisition that are for any diety- Conversion Inquisiton(use wisdom instead of Cha for bluff/diplomacy/intimidate. Might allow you to spend a bit more in your wisdom score. I think in general though you will find that domains are a bit stronger even with out access to the domain spell. The Darkness domain is nice. Free blindfighting feat and melee touch attack to make someone partially blind.

Nimon,

While that is fine in a home game, in PFS there are no listed legal inquisitions for minor deities. An inquisitor will have to stick with a domain, unless there is official word otherwise.

Kerney,

Milani is an awesome god, and its very cool that you're choosing a lesser known deity to make your character unique. While not having access to inquisitions is unfortunate, it sounds like you are willing to do what it takes to make your character concept work. More power to you! And remember, no one had inquisitions before UM. Good luck.


I have been looking through all the related source material and it really is a shame that the inquisitions do not match directly to domains, especially since there is the rare inquisitor that, like the rare paladin, does not follow a specific deity. How is one of them supposed to take an inquisition without it being house ruled by their GM?

As for Milani, even if you look at the inquisitions allowed to the major CG deities, some of them just would not fit her, though a couple of them could. Getting an official answer to this would probably require a post in the general PRPG rules forum. Then you would just have to hope one of the folks from Paizo posts a clarification for how this works for the minor deities, even if all they post is that minor deities do not have inquisitions.

To reiterate from above, sadly the only inquisition that you can use with Milani is the "Conversion" inquisition as that is available for "All Deities." Otherwise Paizo would need to spell out which inquisition would work for each minor deity on Golarion. Until this happens you will be limited to domains or the Conversion inquisition.

On a sidenote, it has been offhandedly mentioned that there were some serious errors with the assignment of inquisitions (seriously.... Zon-Kuthon doesn't have the torture inquisition...) and that in the next errata there will be changes. Whether this includes a generic guide for minor deities I don't know, but it's always possible!

Conversion Inquisition is allowed for all dieties.
