Descriptor - Resourceful


When things look tight, you’re the one your friends expect to find the way out or figure out what to do next. You don’t find it a burden. Figuring out what’s next or finding a clue that points the way forward is the kind of challenge you enjoy. If nothing else, you come prepared to most situations carrying a variety of small tools that just might serve in a pinch.

You gain the following characteristics:

Smart: +2 to your Intellect Pool.

Skill: You are eager to learn. You are trained in any task that involves learning something new, whether you’re talking to a local to get information or digging through old books to find lore.

Planner: You’re the one with a plan. When you observe or study a location for at least one round as your action, the next time you interact with it (possibly in the following round), the difficulty of a related task (such as finding a clue, a tool, or a secret compartment) is reduced by one step.

Inability: You tend to fixate on the details, making you somewhat oblivious to what’s going on around you. The difficulty of any task to notice danger around you is increased by one step.

Additional Equipment: You have a bag of light tools.

Initial Link to the Starting Adventure: From the following list of options, choose how you became involved in the first adventure.

  1. Another PC approached you to get your opinion on the mission, having heard how resourceful you were.
  2. You were interested in what the other PCs were up to and decided to go along with them.
  3. In order to get the PCs to agree to help you achieve a goal at a later time, you agreed to go on their mission first.
  4. You have always wanted to see the place where the other PCs are going.
