[P] Cloaking: Shifters specialize in finding the cracks in reality and shifting between them to gain an advantage over their adversaries.

Shifters are also capable of becoming Cloaked when taking a Defend action. Like most effects, Cloak is removed at the end of the battle.

[P] Assassinate: Certain Shifter abilities, called Ambush abilities, are marked with an [A]. These techniques can only be used while the Shifter is Cloaked, and using one immediately ends the effect.

Furthermore, any time an Ambush ability is used, the Shifter may target enemies in any row regardless of their equipped weapon.

You've mastered the known histories of the world's lost civilizations, and are tantalized by their weird mysteries and strange gaps. Whether you are a young hot-shot or a pre-eminent scholar in the field, there is simply no other option to satisfy your curiosity but to descend into ancient vaults yourself.

You have advantage on rolls to understand and employ long-lost technology and magic - including to identify items.

Through your studies, you have learned to masterfully decipher, translate, and possibly even speak one of the dead languages of the ancients, likely arcoscript.

You know the general location of all the great ruins in the world, including those believed only to be mythical.


As student or professor, you're a researching, adventuring member of one of the world's academic traditions. In addition to your mastery of academic lore and minutiae, especially in your field of study, you are connected to an international community of scholars - a network very useful to tap for knowledge, if you can handle the inherent eccentricities of the profession.

You have advantage on rolls related to the field of your study, as well as rolls related to navigating an academic context.

You know four academic experts, colleagues or mentors of yours - feel free to leave them undefined until needed. You may ask each expert a difficult question once (by letter, or in person) - you gain advantage while acting using their information. If you do a big favor for an expert, they probably owe you another good answer.

You can ask a question vaguely related to any of your studies as if you scored an automatic success on a skill check, once. Refresh this power when you spend downtime with access to academic resources, such as any well-stocked library.
