Wild Scent

Prerequisite(s): Asaatthi, manticora, or slitherin

Your people were created or evolved as predators and hunters. While they have become more civilized, some among them are throwbacks, atavists with bestial traits akin to those of your earliest ancestors. You have fully functional scent glands that grant you a stereoscopic sense of smell, like that of a mole, making you an excellent tracker and giving you a limited ability to “see” with your nose.

You gain the following benefits:

  • If you are blinded, attack rolls you make against creatures within 30 feet of you do not have disadvantage. Other creatures still have advantage on their attack rolls against you while you are blinded.
  • You gain blindsight out to a range of 10 feet. You can’t detect creatures that don’t emit smells using this ability, such as incorporeal or ethereal creatures. Alternatively, creatures that emit a strong odor may be detected from further away. You can’t use this ability if you lose your sense of smell.
  • You have advantage on Perception and Survival checks that involve your sense of smell.
