You’re no stranger to the outdoors — you practically grew up in them. You might have lived on a farm, or in a small town far from the city, the sort of place where a bonfire is the best entertainment on offer. You’re pragmatic, because in a place like that, you have to be. You’re probably more self-reliant than the average person, simply because help was more often than not too far away to be of any real use. You’re likely to be the one who calmly assesses the situation and acts accordingly, because after fighting off a coyote that was after your dog, how scary can a few goblins really be? You likely won’t balk at sleeping out of doors or be afraid to get your hands dirty. Others may come to rely on you, especially if you know your way around a weapon.

Feature: Lay of The Land

You’re never entirely lost. Once per session, if you’re in a natural setting, you can ask the GM to point out a landmark or trail. This will always lead you to where you want to go, but the path will not necessarily be easy. You might run into bandits, wild animals, or difficult terrain.
