Feature: No Place Like Home

Despite being exiled from your home city, you still feel a connection to it. No matter where you are, you can sense the direction and distance to your homeland. This means that with a map, you are essentially never lost. Additionally, your time in the wilderness has allowed you to find enough food and fresh water to keep you and up to five companions alive, assuming there is food and water available.

Suggested Characteristics

Exiled either by choice or by force, Outcasts do not usually relate well to others. Most outcasts are not familiar with their family and have spent minimal time working with strangers. The bonds they form with their adventuring companions are the closest to true friendship that many will ever see.
