The Imperial Age: Advanced Class - Scientific Detective

Sherlock Holmes.

Having been re-reading a lot of Holmes lately I find this class spot-on. If the Monster Hunter class is for fighting monsters, then this class is designed to stop crime. The two work well together since they cover such different grounds.

There is a new feat and a repeated one from Monster Hunter (Gentry). Again, great value for the price.

All the Imperial Age books are all well written and features art from the age, either public domain art and paintings as well as some original art. In all cases the art is very evocative of the time and very well done.

The books are all easy to read, with clean layout and font sizes. They can be printed with ease without killing your printer cartridge.

As an attempt to create a 'Holmes type' character suitable for D20, this works well. The character has a number of new abilities ideally suited for detective work. From being able to deduce facts merely through observation, to being able to predict the behaviour of a known criminal, the Scientific Detective would have numerous advantages during an investigation. Concentrating on such situations, the detective is less able in other activities, and as such is unlikely to unbalance a well planned game. On the downside, it would be useful, though not essential, if the pdf included scenario ideas, pre-generated character examples, advice on fitting the character into a campaign, and so on.

Overall: An interesting and well thought out character concept. Additonal material would be nice, but isn't vital.
