Iron Gods, Steel Faith
Against the Technic League: For whatever reason, you have a grudge against the Technic League. No matter the root cause, you’re convinced that the League is somehow responsible for the troubles facing Torch today. Choose either weapons or spells. If you choose weapons, you gain a +2 trait bonus on all damage rolls made against targets you know are associated with the Technic League. If you choose spells, increase the save DC of your spells by 1 when you target such a foe.
Local Ties: You have ties to a prominent local in the town of Torch: the missing wizard, Khonnir Baine. He may have been your tutor, or a friend or business associate of your family. He may even have been your adoptive father, in which case you likely have a bond of friendship or rivalry with his adopted daughter Val. Your association with Khonnir has given you insight into how technology works. Choose Disable Device or Knowledge (engineering). You gain a +1 trait bonus on checks with this skill, and it is a class skill for you. In addition, you are treated as if you possessed the Technologist feat for the purposes of resolving checks associated with that skill. If you gain the Technologist feat, your trait bonus for the selected skill increases to +3.
Numerian Archaeologist: You’ve studied Numeria’s eerie technological ruins extensively. You gain Androffan as an additional language. In addition, you possess a
knack for technological items; when you use a timeworn technological item, roll twice when determining any glitches the item might cause and choose which result
to use as your actual result. Talk to your GM for more information about resolving glitches.
Robot Slayer: The strange steel automatons that plague the wilds of Numeria are a blight upon the world! You gain a +1 trait bonus on attack rolls against robots and a +1 dodge bonus to AC against attacks made by robots.
Skymetal Smith: You’ve long hoped to work with skymetal, and begin the game with a small metal bauble made of the skymetal of your choice—you made this item yourself. The item is nothing more than a valuable art object worth 100 gp. You can sell it to gain an additional 100 gp when creating your character, but if you keep it, your pride in its crafting grants you a +2 trait bonus on Will saving throws made against emotion and fear effects. You lose this bonus if you willingly sell or give up the item, but if it is destroyed or lost through no fault of your own, you retain a +1 trait bonus on such Will saves.
Stargazer: You hope to learn all you can about the strange creatures lurking in Numeria’s dungeons. You gain a +2 trait bonus on Knowledge checks to identify alien monsters’ abilities and weaknesses. In addition, you gain a +1 trait bonus on Knowledge (geography) checks, and this skill is a class skill for you. You are treated as if you possessed the Technologist feat for the purposes of resolving checks to identify an alien creature using a Knowledge skill and for all Knowledge (geography) checks. If you already possess the Technologist feat, then your trait bonus on Knowledge (geography) checks increases to +3.
