Notes:
Lore Warden
Requirements: Novice, Dwarf, Keeper of the Old
Ways, Smarts d8+, Fighting d6+, Investigation d6+,
Knowledge (History) d8+, one other Knowledge Skill at
d4+, Notice d6+
While many believe the fae to be the masters of
knowledge in Shaintar, the wisest know that it is the
dwarves who have kept vast stores of history and
lore safe through the great cataclysms and tragedies
that have befallen the land over the many centuries.
The Lore Wardens are among the most respected and
cherished individuals of the dwarven race, for not
only do they keep and protect the past, they are also
tasked with going out into the world to discover new
and lost knowledge. A Lore Warden is trained to find
— and fight for, if necessary — both new and lost
knowledge, ultimately to return it to the vaults of
their people for recording and safe keeping. This is
considered Obligations (Major –Lore Wardens.) Thanks
to decades of training and education, they gain +1 on
all Knowledge checks, including Common Knowledge.
They gain +3 on all “Old Ways” rolls (instead of just
+2). They gain +2 to their Investigation checks, and
+2 to Notice if the roll is related to finding something
lore-related. Finally, Lore Wardens can expect great
hospitality and accommodation from any dwarf w ho
knows their station, and most Olarans as well.

Born to the Forge
Requirements: Dwarf, Novice (Note this should be
taken as a Background Edge)
Some dwarves are born of bloodlines that truly link
them to the strength of the mountain and its chosen
people. Improving on the aspects of the Dwarven
core racial ability, Intestinal Fortitude, a dwarf with
this Edge may substitute their Vigor for Spirit in all
ways. Normally Spirit-linked Skills are now Vigorlinked
for this character, and in any situation where
a Spirit roll is called for, the dwarf may instead use
his Vigor.
Note that Edges or other factors that normally
grant bonuses to Vigor checks do not apply when
Vigor is being used for Spirit (but those factors that
enhance Spirit rolls do apply).

Knowledge is Power
Requirements: Dwarf, Seasoned, Lore Warden
True keepers of lore understand the power of
something’s True Name, or of knowing its past and its
essential self. They can sometimes bring to bear such
absolute knowledge to combat a powerful enemy or
overcome an overwhelming challenge.
A dwarf with this Edge may, once per session, take
a full round to roll a Knowledge (History) check at -2.
With a success, they gain a + 2 on all rolls and damage
against the specific target or challenge focus; with a
raise, the bonus increases to + 4. So long as they can
communicate, allies will gain half the bonus (+1, or +2 with a raise).

Map Making Set: A starter set of 10 pages of mapping parchment, with a grid line system already thoughtfully drawn in; a set offive colored charcoal markers; a pair ofscales, for measuring distances; a quill pen with three nibs; a miniature bottle of ink; a thin steel rule, to help measure and draw straight lines, which also has some commonly used mapping stencils,such as the North arrow, stairs, and swinging doors; and finally, the Handbook of Mapping for Better Mapping Etiquette. This guide shows the fledgling mapmaker how to read and draw accurate, quality maps, using widely accepted symbols and terminology
