Getting Angry!

So I was working on an NPC villain for my Rise of the Runelords AP group (the details of such are a secret for the moment) and I tripped across this teamwork feat.

Amplified Rage (Teamwork )
When adjacent to other raging allies, your rages become even more powerful.

Prerequisite: Half-orc or orc, rage class feature.

Benefit: Whenever you are raging and adjacent to a raging ally who also has this feat or flanking the same opponent as a raging ally with this feat, your morale bonuses to Strength and Constitution increase by +4. This feat does not stack with itself (you only gain this bonus from one qualifying ally, regardless of how many are adjacent to you).

So it’s clear to see, that doubling your rage bonus isn’t a bad thing, but you need a combat buddy to snag this feat and if they don’t get angry, well it’s a waste of a feat. However, the Inquisitor class has a lovely little feature called “Solo Tactics”.

Solo Tactics (Ex)

At 3rd level, all of the inquisitor’s allies are treated as if they possessed the same teamwork feats as the inquisitor for the purpose of determining whether the inquisitor receives a bonus from her teamwork feats. Her allies do not receive any bonuses from these feats unless they actually possess the feats themselves. The allies’ positioning and actions must still meet the prerequisites listed in the teamwork feat for the inquisitor to receive the listed bonus.

Now, smooshing these two things together, we end up with a need to multiclass Barbarian x Inquisitor for the result is rather terrifying. BUT WAIT! There’s more! Inquisitors have access to a domain (minus the spells). Usually this isn’t anything amazing as domains tend to be underwhelming. However, Inquisitors can choose an “Inquisition” instead of a domain. One of these is called “Anger Inquisition” and the last piece of the puzzle falls into place.

Divine Anger (Ex): At 6th level, you gain the ability to rage like a barbarian. Your effective barbarian level for this ability is your inquisitor level – 3. If you have levels in barbarian, these levels stack when determining the effect of your rage. You do not gain any rage powers from this granted power, though if you have rage powers from another class, you may use them with these rages. You can rage a number of rounds per day equal to your Wisdom bonus, plus 1 round for every inquisitor level above 4th.

So if you can manage until level six, play a half orc inquisitor (they were really made for one another), and want to get really mad all by yourself, this is a fantastic way to do it and it’s Pathfinder Society Legal. Do note that you’ll need Orcs of Golarion, Ultimate Magic and the Advanced Class Guide for the GM to reference to pull this off.
