Goblin Lore FEAT 1

Core Rulebook p.48


GOBLIN

You’ve picked up skills and tales from your goblin community. You gain the trained proficiency rank in Nature and Stealth.

Junk Tinker FEAT 1

Core Rulebook p.48


GOBLIN

You can make useful tools out of even twisted or rusted scraps. When using the Crafting skill to Craft, you can make level 0 items, including weapons but not armor, out of junk. This reduces the Price to one-quarter the usual amount but always results in a shoddy item. Shoddy items normally give a penalty, but you don’t take this penalty when using shoddy items you made.
You can also incorporate junk to save money while you Craft any item. This grants you a discount on the item as if you had spent 1 additional day working to reduce the cost, but the item is obviously made of junk. At the GM’s discretion, this might affect the item’s resale value depending on the buyer’s tastes.


Rough Rider FEAT 1

Core Rulebook p.48

Very Sneaky FEAT 1

Core Rulebook p.49


GOBLIN

Taller folk rarely pay attention to the shadows at their feet, and you take full advantage of this. You can move 5 feet farther when you take the Sneak action, up to your Speed.

Ankle Bite [reaction]FEAT 5

Lost Omens Character Guide p.38


GOBLIN

Prerequisites Fang Sharpener or razortooth goblin heritage
Trigger A foe gives you the grabbed or restrained condition using a part of its body.


Whenever someone grabs onto you, you instinctively bite down hard. Sometimes that makes them let go, and sometimes it just makes them angrier, but either way, it’s both satisfying and tasty. Make a jaws Strike against the triggering foe. On a critical hit, you are no longer grabbed. This Strike doesn’t count toward your multiple attack penalty, and your multiple attack penalty doesn’t apply to this Strike.

You can light yourself thoroughly on fire with a held torch, a bottle of alchemist’s fire, or a similar incendiary, dealing yourself 1d6 persistent fire damage. As long as you are suffering persistent fire damage, all your melee attacks against adjacent creatures deal an additional 1 fire damage per weapon damage die. Any creature that successfully Grapples, Shoves, or Trips you takes 1d6 fire damage; if it uses a weapon for that action, the weapon takes the damage instead. You must still attempt the flat check to remove the persistent fire damage each round, as normal.

When you take a big hit, your foe bounces you around like a rubber ball, but you escape the worst of the blow. Your foe can move you any distance of its choice up to 30 feet in a direction of its choice (this is not forced movement, and it triggers reactions as normal). You fall prone and are stunned 1. Attempt a DC 6 flat check. On a success, you take minimum damage from the attack, and on a critical success, if the attack was a critical hit, you don’t take double damage from the critical hit.
