We all love loot, right? So why not make a character who doesn't care about any of that "save the innocents from the jaws of evil" stuff, and just wants to get rich?
First off, are there any good treasure hunting items? I know about the Treasure Hunter's Goggles, which I could switch on and off with Eyes of the Eagle. And Gloves of Reconnaissance also stand out as a good choice. But I'd love to hear more suggestions.
Second, are there traits or feats that complement the theme? Coincunning is thematic, although I wonder how many GMs are going to let you walk by a mound of coins and force you to ask for a Perception check instead of just letting you find it automatically. Pragmatic Activator
Ratfolk Inspired Blade 1/Empiricist X
strength 7, dexterity 18, constitution 14, intelligence 18, wisdom 10, charisma 7
traits: Pragmatic Activator, Coincunning
1: Fencing Grace
3: Skill Focus (Perception)
4: Trap Spotter (Investigator Talent -> Rogue Talent)
Not really sure what feats to take, or what other Investigator talents to take.
So, I'd love to hear items, feats, or traits that fit the "treasure hunter" theme. Also feel free to regale us with your stories of shamelessly-avaricious characters.
