Intimidate as move action without being a barbarian / inquisitor?


So I am building an evil NPC for my ongoing hexcrawl, a death/spirit-focused Skald, and I'd like him to be the bossy guy who barks orders from behind and intimidates every PC who comes close. Problem is he needs to be around 5th level and I can't seem to find a way for him to intimidate as a move action. Any ideas?

Make a costum feat and give it to him. Intimidate demoralize as a move action is IMOP a Half bad feat and not problematic to justify. There is also the rage power intimidating glare and if he is a skald he should qualify. He get a rage power at level 3 i Think.


You don't even need a custom feat. Extra Rage Power: Intimidating Glare will do as long as he takes it as his 3rd or 5th-level feat.

The closest I know of would be shocking bellow, which is free action during the surprise round.

Although there are a few different feats that combine intimidate with an attack.

Damn, you guys are right, I totally forgot that Extra Rage Power would get him Intimidating Glare himself... thanks for the pointer!

Shocking Bellow might actually work in my case (still working in the encounter setup), to thanks anyway.

Fighter (Viking) Archetype
Source People of the North pg. 24 (Amazon)
The sagas of the Ulfen people are filled with stories of mighty warriors sailing south to raid the peoples of warmer climes and returning with longships filled with plunder. The Ulfen call these warriors vikings, and their deeds are sung in the longhouses during the long winter nights. A viking strikes fear into the heart of her foes, and in battle can fly into a terrible rage. Many vikings wear the pelts of bears or wolves, drawing on the strength and ferocity of these beasts in battle. Vikings do not wear heavy armor, but are skilled at fighting with an ax or spear in conjunction with a shield.

Fearsome (Ex): At 2nd level, a viking can make an Intimidate check to demoralize an opponent as a move action. At 10th level, she can do so as a swift action. At 18th level, she can demoralize a foe as a free action once per round. This ability replaces bravery.

Tom S 820 has the right of it. Viking gets it at second level. They are fighters that get Rage and Rage Powers at level 4+.

could go order of the cockatrice cavalier (maybe daring champion, since its great)

dazzling display as a standard action at level 2, etc.
