Class Features:

Secret Script: A Questor also knows the Questor secret script known only to them, which they learn upon becoming a 1st-level Questor. This is a free language for a Questor; that is, they knows it in addition to their regular allotment of languages and it doesn’t take up a language slot. Questors are forbidden to teach this language to non-Questors.

This is a written language and has no verbal component. It is used to identify and pass along useful information such as safe houses, enemy locations, traps, and the like for use by other Questors.

Know thy Enemy (Ex): Add Questor level (as bonus) to Knowledge Religion when dealing with CotFO

Spell casting: The Questors do not teach magic as a part of their training but should a member join already knowing magic they continue to advance in their knowledge.

Questor Training (Ex):

Questors come from all manner of walks of life and once initiated dedicate their path to two of three areas; Mind, Body, Agility. They focus their training such that they determine their strongest saving throws. Once picked it cannot be changed. Consult the following chart.
