Ancestries of Vedia : Dwarves

Creatures from all walks of life find their homes in Vedia’s landscape. Some were natives before the Empire took over, some came through slavery, and many more have migrated when the empire fell to seeking to learn the secrets of their demise.

Dwarves :

Populations are greatest in the mountainous regions to the north where they have excavated extravagant cities into the mountains which double as nearly impregnable fortresses from the surface. They can still be found most commonly as merchants in every corner of the continent, and many have made it their personal mission to uncover why their ancient empire fell.

Archaeologist :      Dwarf 1

Through constant traveling and braving dangerous excavation sites you’ve gained some experience dealing with traps, both natural and manufactured. You gain a +1 on perception checks made to notice traps and when passing within 10 feet of one you If you aren’t using the Seek action or searching, the GM automatically rolls a secret check for you to notice hazards anyway. This check doesn’t gain the circumstance bonus, and it takes a –2 circumstance penalty.
