Hoist the Colors

Your dread banner strikes terror into the hearts of enemies.

Prerequisite(s): Charisma 15 or higher, Intimidation proficiency


  • Increase your Charisma by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You can use Charisma (Intimidation) checks to demoralize creatures that can see your distinctive banner or flag at any distance, as long as they can clearly see your ensign.
  • Once per day while making a Charisma (Intimidation) check, you can demoralize the entire crew of a ship by successfully demoralizing the captain of that ship; at the GM’s option, you can also use this ability to demoralize a troop of soldiers or similar military unit, using their commander to set the DC of the Intimidate check.
