Besmara’s Blessing: You were born aboard
a ship at sea or down by the docks in a port city on an
auspicious day. Old salts and sea dogs nod knowingly
and say that Besmara the Pirate Queen, goddess of piracy,
sea monsters, and strife, has marked you for a greater
destiny. You don’t know anything about that, but you’ve
always felt more at home on the sea than on land, and
your keen eyes can easily pick out a sail on the distant
horizon. You gain a +1 trait bonus on Perception
and Profession (sailor) checks. In addition,
once per week you can reroll a Profession
(sailor) check and take the higher result (you
must announce that you are using this ability before the
results of the check are known).
Reactionary: You were bullied often as a child, but never quite developed an offensive response. Instead, you became adept at anticipating sudden attacks and reacting to danger quickly. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Initiative checks.
