SPELLS & ABILITIES:
Archaeologist’s Luck, 10 rounds per day (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 +3 Maestro. 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.)
Bardic Knowledge (A bard adds half his class level (minimum 1) to all Knowledge skill checks and may make all Knowledge skill checks untrained.)
Gnome Magic (Gnomes add +1 to the DC of any saving throws against illusion spells that they cast. Gnomes with Charisma scores of 11 or higher also gain the following spell-like abilities: 1/day—dancing lights, ghost sound, prestidigitation, and speak with animals. The caster level for these effects is equal to the gnome's level. The DC for these spells is equal to 10 + the spell's level + the gnome's Charisma modifier.)

Jubal Breakbottle grew up in Magnimar, all 61 years. His childhood was surprisingly merry and uneventful as one of brood of a couple of successful gnome tinkers. While he was never pressured to continue in the family business, it permeated his life with available tools, forges, and ready training. His extended family includes a company of successful illusionists that work parties and projects of construction and decoration. With all of these available careers, he has struggled to decide on one, so for the past several years, he has temporarily worked with most of his family. Perhaps, fate will intervene for his choice of career.
