How to be a Riftwarden


Advice

Liberty's Edge

Hello folks! I have a pretty simple question; what options are available for Pathfinder Society characters to reflect their membership in the Riftwardens and/or what might people suggest for a Spiritualist who wants to be a Riftwarden?

I have a spiritualist character who is also a member of the Riftwardens and I'd like to try and reflect that in not only her stats, but her gear and her mannerisms.

Are there any good sources to learning about the Riftwardens, or any magic items that are used typically by Riftwardens? Are the Riftwardens in the Faction Guide?

The only one I know of that's Riftwarden-specific is the prestige class. As far as I can tell, you can qualify as a spiritualist.

Other than that, I would pick traits and feats that make you more effective at the Riftwardens' goals. I don't know all the scenarios, but their may be a few with Riftwarden ties (especially in the Year of the Demon). Some of those may offer specific boons or vanities.

That's all I know of, off the top of my head. Anyone else?

I've been a little wary about going into the prestige class (although it would be perfect) because the prestige class has little synergy with the spiritualist class. Her phantom would stop growing in power, her spellcasting gets a bit stunted, and it requires a feat that she would get very little use out of.

That being said, I'm still considering taking it after level 10...

You're not wrong. :) That's just the only option I know of that's specific to the Riftwardens (other than a campaign trait, I suppose...)

I also have used Prestige to purchase the Riftwardens vanity from Pathfinder Society Field Guide. That one did seem like a good choice.

I am just now noticing that there isn't much printed about the organization. But from what I can tell it is meant to be a fairly wide organization, and spells like dismissal and banishment are likely very important spells for them to know. Spiritualists can learn these spells, just late in their career.

I had her take Skill Focus (Knowledge [planes]) as her half-elf bonus feat. It seemed like the kind of thing that Riftwardens might do.
