Indomitable Faith – Faith

You were born in a region where your faith was not popular, yet you never abandoned it. Your constant struggle to maintain your own faith has bolstered your drive.

Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Will saves.

Log Roller (forest) – Regional

The time you spent leaping between slippery logs as they whirled down the river to market taught you how to keep your footing.

Benefit: You gain a +1 trait bonus on Acrobatics checks and a +1 trait bonus to your CMB when attempting to resist trip attacks.

Ship's Surgeon – Campaign

On a ship, a sailor often has to learn multiple skills, and this rule certainly applies to you. Your father was a woodworker, and you learned your first trade from him. But on your first voyage at sea you quickly found out that a carpenter is often a ship's doctor as well—after all, who knows more about sawing off limbs than someone who saws wood for a living? People are a lot bloodier than wood, that's for sure, but you haven't had many complaints—those sailors who have enjoyed your services are either happy to be alive or dead, and there's old salts who swear the peg legs you for made them are better than the real legs they used to have.

You were between ships in Port Peril, and after stopping for a drink at a tavern called the Formidably Maid, you happened upon a damsel in distress in the alleyway outside. Thinking you could help, you didn't notice the thugs hiding nearby, and they caught you unawares. You've been on enough ships to know a press gang by the blow of the sap on the back of your neck—you just hope whatever ship you end up on needs a surgeon. Although the majority of your equipment was taken away when you were press-ganged, you managed to hang on to a fully stocked healer's kit, and you begin the campaign with it, regardless of your starting circumstances.

Benefit You gain a +1 trait bonus on Craft (carpentry) and Heal checks, and Heal is a class skill for you.



You know the secrets of repairing and restoring firearms.

Benefit: If you have access to a gunsmith's kit, you can create and restore firearms, craft bullets, and mix black powder for all types of firearms. You do not need to make a Craft check to create firearms and ammunition or to restore firearms.

Crafting Firearms: You can craft any early firearm for a cost in raw materials equal to half the price of the firearm. At your GM’s discretion, you can craft advanced firearms for a cost in raw materials equal to half the price of the firearm. Crafting a firearm in this way takes 1 day of work for every 1,000 gp of the firearm’s price (minimum 1 day).

Crafting Ammunition: You can craft bullets, pellets, and black powder for a cost in raw materials equal to 10% of the price. If you have at least 1 rank in Craft (alchemy), you can craft alchemical cartridges for a cost in raw materials equal to half the price of the cartridge. At your GM’s discretion, you can craft metal cartridges for a cost in raw materials equal to half the cost of the cartridge. Crafting bullets, black powder, or cartridges takes 1 day of work for every 1,000 gp of ammunition (minimum 1 day).

Restoring a Broken Firearm: Each day, with an hour’s worth of work, you can use this feat to repair a single firearm with the broken condition. You can take time during a rest period to restore a broken firearm with this feat.

Special: If you are a gunslinger, this feat grants the following additional benefit. You can use this feat to repair and restore your initial, battered weapon. It costs 300 gp and 1 day of work to upgrade it to a masterwork firearm of its type.

Sea Legs
You have a sailor’s instincts for moving about while aboard seagoing vessels.
Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus on Acrobatics, Climb, and Swim checks.

Weapon Finesse (Combat)
You are trained in using your agility in melee combat, as opposed to brute strength.
Benefit: With a light weapon, elven curve blade, rapier, whip, or spiked chainmade for a creature of your size category, you may use your Dexterity modifier instead of your Strength modifier on attack rolls. If you carry a shield, its armor check penalty applies to your attack rolls.
Special: Natural weapons are considered light weapons.

Deadly Aim: You can choose to take a –1 penalty on all ranged attack rolls to gain a +2 bonus on all ranged damage rolls. When your base attack bonus reaches +4, and every +4 thereafter, the penalty increases by –1 and the bonus to damage increases by +2. You must choose to use this feat before making an attack roll and its effects last until your next turn. The bonus damage does not apply to touch attacks or effects that do not deal hit point damage.

Two-Weapon Fighting: Penalty to use two weapons is reduced to -4/-4. If weapon in off-hand is light, it is reduced to -2/-2.

Point Blank Shot: +1 to hit and damage with ranged weapon if target is within 30 feet.

Quick Draw: You may draw a weapon as a "Free Action" and sheathe the weapon as a "Swift Action".

Precise Shot (Combat)
Benefit: Do not suffer the -4 penalty when shooting into melee combat.

Cleave: You can strike two adjacent foes with a single swing.

Benefit: As a standard action, you can make a single attack at your full base attack bonus against a foe within reach. If you hit, you deal damage normally and can make an additional attack (using your full base attack bonus) against a foe that is adjacent to the first and also within reach. You can only make one additional attack per round with this feat. When you use this feat, you take a –2 penalty to your Armor Class until your next turn.

Unique Special Ability:

Per GM Boon

Horatio gains the ability to deflect ranged weapons. Once per round when you would normally be hit by a ranged attack, you may attempt a reflex save with a DC = to the attack roll to deflect it for no damage.

This may be used against any ranged attack that has an attack roll including ray spells and bullets. In addition, with a roll that beats the dc by 10 or more, you can instead reflect the attack back at the attacker. You must be aware of the attack and not flat footed. You also gain a 20% chance to negate all energy damage when exposed to said damage. This is to account for your prismatic scales rotating energy resistance.


Background for Character

Where was your character born?

Who raised him?
His mother – Jenna – raised him until he was 13. Jenna was of colonial blood, and an important, though minor, noble as well as a priestess of Milani. However, despite the fact that she was a colonial priestess she still fought ardently for freedom for the slaves, that were kept and sold from Sargava until she was eventually killed for her beliefs. It was during this period of growing up and observing his mother’s work that Horatio dedicated himself to overthrowing slavers and trying to do good works for people (this is where he acquired his “Indomitable Faith” and Diplomacy).

After his mother died his uncle Donavan took the boy under his hand and had him help work in the lumber yards of the surrounding lands (this is where he gained the trait Log Roller). While not a member of the clergy, Horatio made up his mind to help people and decided to train at an academy to learn to be a doctor. He wanted to have more freedom and explore the lands beyond Sargava, and decided to be a Ship’s Surgeon with his skills.

During his time between semesters he worked with his uncle doing odd jobs as a carpenter when he wasn’t working in the lumber yards (Craft: Carpenter) work to for his education and worked summers as a fisherman to aid in coin (Perception, Profession: Sailor, Swim).

Eventually he graduated his schooling (Healing, Linguistics), went into town and enjoy a few drinks…

What was happening in the region when your character was growing up?
The Chelish pirates attempted to attack the shipping lanes, and the pirates occasionally made demands on the town.

Does your character have any relatives?
He was raised by his uncle Donavan. He never knew his father.

What are your character’s immediate goals? What would he like to do in the coming year?
Sign on a formal ship and function as its acting surgeon.

What are his long-term goals?
Take healing to those that need it.

What type of person would be his ideal mate?
Someone who is educated, focused, hard working, gentle, kind, aristocratic, sophisticated, courteous and courageous.

Who is his patron deity? Is he a devout worshiper?
He honors all the gods, but leans strongly toward Milani in honor of his mother, who died for the cause of serving her goddess.

Is he a devout member of any nonreligious cause?
He has ideals – but not specifically a “devout” member of any cause yet; though he is already 22, he has had a fairly sheltered life in both temple and later on lumber camps, ships and then school.

Is there any race, creed, alignment, religion or the like against which he is strongly prejudiced?
He hates anyone who would wrongfully oppress another. This is a vague concept for him. He recognizes the absolute despotism that a captain must maintain on their ship, or face mutiny – but he also understands that a captain protects both his ship and his crew – to compromise either unnecessarily causes them all to perish.

He loathes slavers privately – but is not formally vocal on his values – yet.

What is his greatest fear?
To let down the ideals of his mother.

What is the one task he absolutely refuses to do?
He is not sure – he has not considered the full implications of such things, being more interested in the esoteric concepts of right and wrong.


What is your character’s motto or favorite saying?
He has no favorite motto or saying – letting the mood or situation dictate the phrase – not a pre-made motto.

What is his favorite color?
Red – preferably scarlet.

Describe what he would wear if money were no object?
Silk shirts, fine linens are his preference. He enjoys comfortable clothes that are also fashionable but not gaudy or showy.

What is his favorite food? Drink?
Fresh bread and butter, ripe cheese, roast capon, pickled cabbage, smoked sausages, sherry, rum and port.

What is his favorite animal?
The falcon – free, proud and noble.

What habits of his friends annoy him most?
He hates negative attitudes, cynicism, and people who are unnecessarily cruel.

AC/DC – “Highway to Hell”

If his friends were to write his epitaph, what would it be?

Further Details:

Gunslinger - Buccaneer (Human)

Weapon and Armor Proficiency: Gunslingers are proficient with all simple and martial weapons, and with all firearms. They are proficient with all light armor.

At 1st level, a gunslinger gains one of the following firearms of her choice: blunderbuss, musket, or pistol. Her starting weapon is battered, and only she knows how to use it properly. All other creatures treat her gun as if it had the broken condition. If the weapon already has the broken condition, it does not work at all for anyone else trying to use it. This starting weapon can only be sold for scrap (it’s worth 4d10 gp when sold). The gunslinger also gains Gunsmithing as a bonus feat.

A buccaneer swaps four of the normal gunslinger deeds for the following deeds.

Seadog's Gait (Ex): At 1st level, the buccaneer gains Sea Legs as a bonus feat. If she spends 1 grit point, she can ignore difficult terrain until the end of her turn. This replaces the quick clear deed.

Deadeye (Ex): At 1st level, the gunslinger can resolve an attack against touch AC instead of normal AC when firing beyond her firearm’s first range increment. Performing this deed costs 1 grit point per range increment beyond the first. The gunslinger still takes the –2 penalty on attack rolls for each range increment beyond the first when she performs this deed.

Gunslinger’s Dodge (Ex): At 1st level, the gunslinger gains an uncanny knack for getting out of the way of ranged attacks. When a ranged attack is made against the gunslinger, she can spend 1 grit point to move 5 feet as an immediate action; doing so grants the gunslinger a +2 bonus to AC against the triggering attack. This movement is not a 5-foot step, and provokes attacks of opportunity. Alternatively, the gunslinger can drop prone to gain a +4 bonus to AC against the triggering attack. The gunslinger can only perform this deed while wearing medium or light armor, and while carrying no more than a light load.

Grit (Ex)
Like the sea itself, a buccaneer is a force of nature. Instead of using her Wisdom modifier to determine the number of grit points she gains at the start of each day, she uses her Charisma modifier.
This ability works in all other ways like the gunslinger's grit class feature.

Bard – Archeologist

Bardic Performance
Archaeologists do not gain the bardic performance ability or any of its performance types.

Archaeologist’s Luck (Ex)
Fortune favors the archaeologist. As a swift action, an archaeologist can call on fortune’s favor, giving him a +1 luck bonus on attack rolls, saving throws, skill checks, and weapon damage rolls. He can use this ability for a number of rounds per day equal to 4 + his Charisma modifier +2 each level after 1.

Maintaining this bonus is a free action, but it ends immediately if the archaeologist is killed, paralyzed, stunned, knocked unconscious, or otherwise prevented from taking a free action to maintain it each round. Archaeologist’s luck is treated as bardic performance for the purposes of feats, abilities, effects, and the like that affect bardic performance. Like bardic performance, it cannot be maintained at the same time as other performance abilities. This bonus increases to +2 at 5th level, +3 at 11th level, and +4 at 17th level.

Gains 4+Charisma Modifier in rounds per day. Gains an additional +2 rounds per level, as “Bardic Performance” standard.

Current Total per day: 4+2+4 = 12.

Bardic Knowledge (Ex)
A bard adds half his class level (minimum 1) to all Knowledge skill checks and may make all Knowledge skill checks untrained.

Clever Explorer (Ex)
At 2nd level, an archaeologist gains a bonus equal to half his class level on Disable Device and Perception checks. He can disable intricate and complex devices in half the normal amount of time (minimum 1 round) and open a lock as a standard action. At 6th level, an archaeologist can take 10 on Disable Device checks, even if distracted or endangered, and can disarm magical traps.
This ability replaces the versatile performance ability.

Uncanny Dodge (Ex)
At 2nd level, an archaeologist gains uncanny dodge, as the rogue class feature of the same name.
This ability replaces well-versed.

Trap Sense (Ex)
At 3rd level, an archaeologist gains trap sense +1, as the rogue class feature of the same name. This bonus improves by +1 for every three levels gained after 3rd, to a maximum of +6 at 18th level.

Rouge Skill
Combat Trick: Take one Combat Feat - "Quick Draw".

Bardic Spells

Cantrips – 4
Detect Magic
Mage Hand

Level 1 Spells –
4 Per Day

Feather Step

Level 2 Spells -

Urban Barbarian

Crowd Control (Ex)
At 1st level, an urban barbarian gains a +1 bonus on attack rolls and a +1 dodge bonus to AC when adjacent to two or more enemies. In addition, her movement is not impeded by crowds, and she gains a bonus equal to 1/2 her barbarian level on Intimidate checks to influence crowds.

This ability replaces fast movement.

Controlled Rage (Ex)

When an urban barbarian rages, instead of making a normal rage she applies a +4 morale bonus to her Strength, Dexterity, or Constitution. This bonus increases to +6 when she gains greater rage and +8 when she gains mighty rage. She may apply the full bonus to one ability score or may split the bonus between several scores in increments of +2. When using a controlled rage, an urban barbarian gains no bonus on Will saves, takes no penalties to AC, and can still use Intelligence-, Dexterity-, and Charisma-based skills.

This ability alters rage.

Rage: 5/5 Rounds a day.

Gained 1 Hero Point: Hero Point

Current Hero Points: 3 / 3
Special Bonus: May choose to re-roll 1 1d20 1 time.

May now use this special ability 2: 3 times for good social RP.
