Source World Guide pg. 23
Archetype Pathfinder Agent
Prerequisites member of the Pathfinder Society
Access You are from Absalom.

Your Pathfinder training has broadened your horizons and made you more flexible at various skills, since you never know when you might need an obscure skill to complete your mission. You become trained in one skill of your choice, or expert in a skill of your choice in which you were trained. You also become trained in Pathfinder Lore, or an expert if you were already trained. When using a skill untrained, your proficiency bonus is equal to your level instead of 0. You gain access to wayfinders.

Special You cannot select another dedication feat until you have gained two other feats from the Pathfinder Agent archetype.

The facsimile has the same shape and Bulk as the replaced object and can pass as the object if not examined.

PFS StandardEidetic Memorization Three ActionsFeat 10

Archetype
Source Pathfinder Society Guide pg. 41
Archetype Pathfinder Agent
Prerequisites Pathfinder Agent Dedication

Pathfinders are often asked to study the intricacies of ancient history under less than ideal conditions, and you've trained your brain to make the most of your limited time. You quickly memorize an inscription, scroll, or other piece of writing you can clearly see whose length is equivalent to no more than one page. You can then accurately recreate this writing using a writing kit, wax tablet, or other writing medium, once you have reached safety. You don't need to understand the writing or identify the language to reproduce it. Your memory lasts until the next time you make your daily preparations; if you have not written down or otherwise recreated what you saw by this point, your memory fades and any attempt to recreate what you saw is garbled and unintelligible. You can have only one piece of writing memorized at a time; any previous memorization fades the next time you use this ability.
