Occult Enforcer (Apath)
|Unofficial rules compendium|
Certain psychics find that their abilities—by design or chance—develop into techniques for finding other magic users. They may champion spirits or people wronged by psychic forces, or work for an agency devoted to combating occult dangers. Whatever the cause, an occult enforcer focuses on finding and fighting magicians, particularly psychic casters that few can see or even know that they exist.
This is a inquisitor archetype.
Hit Die: d8.
This archetype has all normal class features, except as noted.
An occult enforcer casts psychic spells drawn from the inquisitor spell list. She uses thought and emotion components rather than verbal and somatic components and learns knacks rather than orisons (level zero spells). She can use occult skill unlocks. This modifies the inquisitor's spells ability.
Discern Power (Sp)
The occult enforcer can use greater detect magic at will. When discerning the school of a spell detected using discern power or power sight (see below), the occult enforcer also learns the origin of the spell's magic (arcane/divine/psychic). She cannot find the power origin of magic items this way. This replaces detect alignment.
Psychic Discipline (Ex or Sp)
The occult enforcer selects a psychic discipline, as the psychic class feature. She gains and uses the discipline powers of her chosen psychic discipline as a psychic of her occult enforcer level. She gains and expends uses of the judgement ability rather than points of phrenic pool. Each psychic discipline has a list of bonus spells, these spells are added to the occult enforcer's spell list. The first spell of each level the occult enforcer selects as a known spell must be the bonus spell for that spell level. Note that the rate an occult enforcer receives bonus spells differs from that of a psychic, and she never receives bonus spells of 7th or higher level, these spells are not on the occult enforcer's spell list. This replaces domain/inquisition.
Psychic Scent (Su)
At 2nd level, an occult enforcer develops a magical sense that works as scent to detect spells and spell-like abilities. The enforcer can scent creatures using or under the effect of spells ans spell-like abilities, and can track such creatures. When using discern power to identify the school of a spell, the enforcer also picks up the scent of that spell, and can use this to track and identify the caster as long as discern power can detect the lingering magic. Psychic scent can be overwhelmed if there are many magic scents around. This ability does not detect normal scents. Psychic scent replaces track.
Power Sight (Sp)
At 5th level, an occult enforcer can use arcane sight (sp) for a number of rounds per day equal to her occult enforcer level. These rounds do not need to be consecutive. Activating this ability is an immediate action. Power sight replaces discern lies.
