Magical Merchant

Magical Merchant Background (Magical)

Selling magic items isn’t like being an ordinary merchant. The wares you buy and sell are expensive, making each sale rare and lucrative. You’ve developed knowledge of expert handiwork to ensure you don’t fall for a scam, since buying a single counterfeit item can lead to bankruptcy. Whether you went out of business and had to find alternative employment, or took up adventuring to acquire new merchandise, you’ve taken to adventuring yourself.

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

You’re trained in Crafting and Mercantile Lore. You gain the Crafter’s Appraisal skill feat.
