Necromancer’s Apprentice

Necromancer’s Apprentice

Background Common

You apprenticed under a necromancer—a hard education in a field where a cadaver you were dissecting could suddenly animate and every magical artifact seemed deadly. Now on your own, you’re grateful you learned to identify magical threats quickly and thoroughly.

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

You’re trained in the Arcana skill and the Necromancy Lore skill. You gain the Quick Identification skill feat.
