Regional Traits

These regional traits are available to all Chelish characters.

Cliff Jumper (Cliffs of Fury): You spent your early years exploring and foraging along the coastal cliffs. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Acrobatics and Climb checks, and on Reflex saves to avoid falling.

Dump Salvager (Westcrown): You grew up in or around Westcrown’s rubbish-strewn shores and spent your spare time digging through trash looking for things worth selling. You gain a +3 trait bonus on Perception checks to search for concealed items.

Egorian School Apprentice (Egorian): You studied under one of the masters of the Egorian School style of architecture. You gain a +3 trait bonus on Knowledge (engineering) checks and a +2 trait bonus on Perception checks to find secret doors or traps in buildings built in the Egorian School style.

Thrune Loyal Agent: You have sworn your body to Queen Abrogail and House Thrune in a ritual ceremony, and are willing to lay down your life in service to Thrune. Once per week, when reduced to fewer than 0 hit points, you automatically gain fast healing 1 for 1 minute. Once this ability has been used, you instead gain a +4 trait bonus on Constitution checks to stabilize when reduced to negative hit points.

In addition, you receive an invisible arcane mark of the encircled cross emblem of Cheliax as a symbol of your loyalty. This mark does not fade and is visible only to other creatures with this trait, or creatures with the ability to perceive the invisible (via see invisibility or true seeing, for example). You can make this mark visible to other creatures for 1 round as a swift action. If the mark is dispelled or removed (such as with erase), it can be replaced with another casting of arcane mark, which thereafter functions as detailed in this trait.

Wharf Rat (Ostenso): You may never have been on a boat larger than a garbage scow, but you’ve been helping them dock all your life. You gain a +2 trait bonus on skill checks involving climbing and rope use, and a +4 trait bonus on Appraise checks to determine the value of large quantities of bulk goods without opening their containers.

Whisper Woods Hunter (Whisper Woods): Your family prepared you for a life of evading or destroying fiendish creatures. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Survival checks to track evil outsiders and a +2 trait bonus on initiative checks when you know your opponent is an evil outsider.
