You’ve participated in the mock gladiatorial battles and athletic feats at the Serpent’s Run, Magnimar’s grand hippodrome, but the safe nature of those games leaves you bored. Seeking greater thrills and tests of your abilities, you’ve pledged your arms and skill to the local Pathfinder lodge. Choose one of the following benefits to represent the techniques you learned from your time at the Serpent’s Run:
  • Choose a specific type of armor. When wearing armor of that type, you treat its armor check penalty as if it were –1 lower.
  • When fighting with two weapons, the penalty imposed on your primary weapon is reduced by 1.
  • You gain a +2 trait bonus on Intimidate checks to demoralize opponents.
