Thorned Purifier (Inquisitor Archetype)

Thorned purifiers are wracked with constant pain as a reminder of their vows. They strive to teach the value of suffering throughout the world.

Torture Inquisition

The thorned purifier must choose the Torture inquisition in place of a domain.

Painful Motivation (Ex)

At 1st level, the thorned purifier learns that pain can be a source of great motivation, not just in causing her enemies to suffer, but for inspiring herself to even greater achievements. Whenever she suffers lethal damage, she gains a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls and skill checks for one round. This bonus improves by +1 at 5th level and every five levels thereafter.

This ability replaces monster lore.

Endless Agony (Ex)

At 2nd level, the thorned purifier becomes an expert in inflicting pain.

Whenever she scores a critical threat with a melee weapon (she need not confirm the critical to use this ability), she may use an immediate action to cause the target to become sickened for a number of rounds equal to her Wisdom modifier.

This ability replaces cunning initiative.

Mental Cilice (Ex)

At 2nd level, the thorned purifier may use a melee weapon to deal 1 point of lethal damage to herself per inquisitor level, as an immediate action, in order to reroll a failed Will saving throw. This damage cannot be reduced or avoided in any way.

This ability replaces track.

Channel Negative Energy (Su)

At 3rd level, the thorned purifier gains the ability to channel negative energy like a cleric.

For this purpose, her effective cleric level is her inquisitor level -3.

This ability replaces solo tactics and teamwork feats.
