Intelligence is an ability score in Pathfinder: Kingmaker.

Description[edit | edit source]

Intelligence determines how well a character learns and reasons. This ability is important for wizards, magi, and alchemists because it affects their spellcasting ability in many ways.

If a character's Intelligence falls to 0, the character dies. Mindless creatures do not possess an Intelligence score. Their modifier is +0 for any Intelligence-based skills or checks. Creatures of animal-level instinct have Intelligence scores of 1 or 2. Any creature capable of understanding speech has a score of at least 3.

Your character's Intelligence modifier affects:

The number of skill points gained each level. Characters add one-half their intelligence modifier to their class's skill points per level. Your character always gains at least 1 skill point per level.

Knowledge: Arcana and Knowledge: World checks.

Note that wizards and alchemists gain bonus spells based on their Intelligence scores. The minimum Intelligence to cast a wizard spell, a magus spell, or use an alchemist extract is 10 + the spell's level. Intelligence based spell casters add their intelligence modifier to their spell's difficulty class.
