Review – The Inquisitor’s Edge: Advanced Feats

22 May, 2011

If you wish to understand the Inquisitor class and to expand the options available to them this is the sourcebook for you.  The feats contained within are useful for a variety of classes and character types but they are especially useful for expanding on the Inquisitor’s options.

The Inquisitor’s Edge: Advanced Feats is a 16-page PDF (13-pages if you remove the cover, ad and OGL page) for the Pathfinder RPG written by Sigfried Trent and published by Open Design.  This is part of Open Design’s Advance Feats line for Pathfinder.

The layout is traditional two columns and the table of feats is easy to read.  The cover is full color while the minimal interior art is (including a repetition of the cover art) does not distract.

The Inquisitor’s Edge begins with an introduction to this product and it intention, which is to provide a detailed look at the Inquisitor class, examining style of play and providing additional options for the class.  It then proceeds to do just that, outlining the strengths and weaknesses of the class and provides basic advice to consider when playing the class.  An understanding of the workings of the class is provided.

Next are the thirty new feats, only four of which are tied to Inquisitor class abilities, and each has roughly a paragraph of commentary that explains the reasoning behind the feat and balance issues if appropriate.  For anyone interested in understanding the mechanics that underpin Pathfinder, such information is very useful.  The feats are solid mechanically and are useful for a variety of classes and builds.

Concluding the product are three example 20-level progression builds: the Bloodhound (bounty hunter), Wolf in Sheep’s Clothing (infiltrator) and the Detective.  The builds also include some interesting play style discussion.

Disclosure: As a featured reviewer for RPGNow/DriveThroughRPG, I received my copy of this product for free from the publisher for the purpose of this review.
