Home > Backgrounds > Merchant



In a dusty shop, market stall, or merchant caravan, you bartered wares for coin and trade goods. The skills you picked up still apply in the adventuring life, in which a good deal on a suit of armor could prevent your death.

Choose two ability boosts. One must be to Intelligence or Charisma, and one is a free ability boost.

You gain the Diplomacy skill and the Mercantile Lore skill.
You gain the Bargain Hunter skill feat.
