Inscrutable Bureaucrat (Investigator/Inquisitor)
The tyrannical Hell, compassionate Heaven, and ordered Utopia. Vastly different from one another in their own rights, each of these planes holds true to the same paradigm–an organized society with strict adherence to the law. Inscrutable bureaucrats gaze upon these places in awe, seeking to learn the inner mechanisms from which they gain their powers and the methods by which they are governed. These calculating, machine-hearted individuals harness the knowledge of these planes, while wielding a fiery lash to ensure their unbendable will. (Original Concept by Taco Man)
Primary Class: Investigator.
Secondary Class: Inquisitor.
Alignment: Any lawful.
Hit Dice: d8.
Bonus Skills and Ranks: The inscrutable bureaucrat selects three inquisitor skills to add to his class skills, in addition to the normal investigator class skills. The inscrutable bureaucrat gains a number of ranks at each level equal to 6 + Int modifier.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: The inscrutable bureaucrat is proficient with all simple weapons, plus the hand crossbow, rapier, sap, shortbow, short sword, and sword cane. He is also proficient with light armor, but with not shields. He can cast inquisitor spells while wearing light armor without incurring the normal arcane spell failure chance. Like any other arcane spellcaster, a inscrutable bureaucrat wearing medium armor, heavy armor, or using a shield incurs a chance of arcane spell failure if the spell in question has a somatic component. A multiclass inscrutable bureaucrat still incurs the normal arcane spell failure chance for arcane spells received from other classes.
Spellcasting: An inscrutable bureaucrat casts divine spells drawn from the inquisitor spell list. He can cast any spell he knows at any time without preparing it ahead of time, assuming he has not yet used up his allotment of spells per day for the spell’s level.
To learn or cast a spell, an inscrutable bureaucrat must have an Intelligence score equal to at least 10 + the spell level. The Difficulty Class for a saving throw against an inscrutable bureaucrat’s spell is 10 + the spell level + the inscrutable bureaucrat’s Intelligence modifier.
An inscrutable bureaucrat can cast only a certain number of spells of each spell level each day. His base daily spell allotment is given on Table: Inscrutable Bureaucrat. In addition, he receives bonus spells per day if he has a high Intelligence score.
An inscrutable bureaucrat’s selection of spells is extremely limited. An inscrutable bureaucrat begins play knowing four 0-level spells and two 1st-level spells of the inscrutable bureaucrat’s choice. At each new inscrutable bureaucrat level, he gains one or more new spells as indicated on Table: Inscrutable Bureaucrat Spells Known. (Unlike spells per day, the number of spells an inscrutable bureaucrat knows is not affected by his Intelligence score. The numbers on Table: Inscrutable Bureaucrat Spells Known are fixed.)
Upon reaching 5th level, and at every third inscrutable bureaucrat level thereafter (8th, 11th, and so on), an inscrutable bureaucrat can choose to learn a new spell in place of one he already knows. In effect, the inscrutable bureaucrat “loses” the old spell in exchange for the new one. The new spell’s lev
