Ghost Hunter

You have studied the signs, purchased your silver and garlic, and have prepared for your battle against the Undead. A life spent hunting the Undead and rescuing those beset by them have honed your mind and body in one of the most dangerous professions in the world.


Skill Proficiencies: History, Religion

Languages: Two of your choice

Equipment: A scholarly book describing Undead, a holy symbol or token of protection, a bag of crushed salt, dried garlic, and a pouch containing 15 gp.

Feature: Dark Rumors

Years spent hunting the Undead across the continent have given you insight into the ramblings of townsfolk.

After spending an hour in a tavern or public gathering place, you can discern any rumors of Undead as either true or false.

Suggested Characteristics

A life this dangerous and harrowing can often leave scars on a hunter, both physical and mental. There is no hunter unaffected by their job in some way or another, and these effects can often manifest as either positive, such as a desire to protect others, or negative, such as an obsession with hunting.
