For some, it is enough to catch common criminals and bring them to justice through conventional means. There are others, however, who see the evil that lurks within the hearts of men everywhere and know that sometimes it is necessary to resort to extraordinary measures to smite the wicked. Such men are often seen as saviors to the victims of wrongdoing, righteous avengers that can do what needs doing in the face of evil. Others, however, see them as dangerous vigilantes with a thirst for punishing criminals that goes far beyond the letter of the law. Judges see their religion as the touchstone that keeps them true to their calling, as well as the shield that protects them from corrupt nobles and crooked guardsmen. They are hard men doing a hard job, and they would have it no other way.

Bonuses: Due to his suspicious nature and eye for trouble, the judge receives a +2 competence bonus to any Sense Motive checks.

Penalties: The judge is simply unable to dissemble well – his forthright nature and desire to seek justice prevent him from ever lying effectively. The judge receives a -2 competence penalty on all Bluff checks.
