    Currently Working on adding new professions. Please Peach and feel free to add suggestions for talents or balance changes. Currently I would like to clean up the boring Magnum Opi so they have more weight.


    Author Design Note's
    For use with Pathfinder treat the pathfinders skill ranks as 3 higher in all cases.
    Currently there is no plan for an Extra Talent feat as it would impact the effect of boons in a way that potentially detrimental to balance.

    Scars from a million cuts: Gain damage reduction X/-, X equal to con score, not to exceed Profession(Blacksmith) Ranks. Requires primary profession blacksmith, rank 18{15}.
    those two gives the exact same benefit
    but one of them is way harder to obtain.
    It seems there is probably a typo or something.

    They do provide something different, but the difference is subtle wording. Also, million cuts was suppose to have thousand cuts as a prerequisite which it now does. The difference is million cuts X = Con Score, while thousand cuts X equals Con Modifier, but I've reworded million cuts to reflect a change better.
