Class Skills (4 + Int modifier per level, ×4 at 1st level)
. All of the following are class features of the Officer.
Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Simple, and martial. The Officer is proficient in all armor types.
Aura of Anticipation : The Officer's keen sense for danger rubs off on those around him. Allies and himself within 15ft radius gain a +2 on initiative checks and an additional +1 for every 5 levels of Officer class. (+3 at Level 5, +4 at Level 10 etc....)
Inspiring Speech : 2x + 2x per 5 Officers levels, He may attempt to inspire those around him. Affects allies that can hear him. If successful perform check on speech, affected allies receive +1 on attack and damage rolls for the turn of the speech +5 rounds. (can use up 2 speeches in an attempt to double the effect, but if you fail you still lose 2 speeches for the day)
Rallying Call : As a move action, 2 times per day (+1 every 5 Officer levels after 1st) the Officer can call for their party to rally around them. All of the officer's allies can choose to make an immediate action to move up to half their base movement speed towards the Officer. Any movement made through this immediate action still provokes attacks of opportunity if moving through a threatened square. This ability can only be used once per encounter.
Improved Aide Another ): The Officer applies his Diplomacy check to his aide, if successful, and adds a +4 instead of +2 to the aide.
Convince: 2x per day (and +1 every 5 officer levels at level 5) the Officer can either reroll or add +2 to a Diplomacy, Bluff, or Intimidate check. (only can be used once per day per NPC)
Aura of Confidence: The Officer's allies are not easily scared in combat with their Officer nearby. All allies within 15ft get a +2 saving throw against fears and charm of any kind, while the officer takes a +4.
Greater Aide Another: See Improved Aide Another, except adds an additional +2 to the bonus.
Inspire Greatness: AT 9th level, an Officer with 12 or more ranks in perform may attempt to inspire himself or an ally (+1 additional ally every 3 levels from level 9, so additional +1 at 12th, +2 at 15th, so on) within 30ft to be greater than they are in normal circumstances. Lasts as long as the ally hears the speech and 5 rounds after that. Those inspired gain 2 hit dice (d10s), a +2 competence bonus on attack rolls, and a +1 competence bonus on Fortitude saves. The bonus Hit Dice count as regular Hit Dice for determining the effect of spells that are Hit Dice dependant. Inspire greatness is a mind-affecting ability.
Tactical Style: At 7th level, an officer advances his tactical acumen and adapts quickly to situations. An officer upon entering combat can choose a tactical style offensive, defensive, or specialist tactics. He may change his choice once per encounter as a standard action. Bonuses provided through Tactical Style affect all allies which can hear the Officer, including the Officer himself.
Offensive: +1 bonus on attack rolls or +1 bonus versus spell resistance. Once per encounter, an officer can enable one ally within range of Tactical Style to reroll their initiative. If the new roll is higher than the original roll they now act on that new count. If it is lower, the ally may choose which roll they wish to act on.
Defensive: +1 bonus to AC, +1 bonus on all saving throws.
Specialist: +2 bonus to all Bull Rush, Disarm, Feint, Overrun, Sunder, and Trip attempts.
Speech of Freedom: An officer of 12th level or higher with 15 or more ranks in a Perform skill can use speech to create an effect equivalent to the break enchantment spell (caster level equals the character’s officer level). Using this ability requires 1 minute of uninterrupted concentration and speech, and it functions on a single target within 30 feet. An officer can’t use speech of freedom on himself.
Battle Study: During combat, the officer may study a target. If studied successfully for 3 rounds he can detect a weakness in the enemy and lowers it's AC by 2 for the remainder of the encounter. You may start studying at any point in combat, but cannot reap its effect until the 10th round of combat.
