Scion of Ghallanda

Scion of Ghallanda

Prerequisites: Member of House Ghallanda, Mark of Hospitality

   Enter any large town in Khorvaire, go to the best inn, and you’re likely to see the crest of House Ghallanda.  The halflings of this Dragonmarked House possess the Mark of Hopitality, whose power allows them to provide the best lodgings and food money can buy.  As a child, you remember traveling from city to city, seeing the sprawling empire of hospitality services that your house provides.

   Manifesting a Dragonmark earned you honor and prestige in your House, perhaps even an offer to manage a notable tavern or inn.  However, something drove you down the path of an adventurer.  Perhaps you grew bored with the bureaucracy inherent in such a large organization or you have some wrong that you must right.  Regardless of your motives, you bring with you the warmth of a hearth and the satisfaction of a good meal to your companions wherever you may be.

   As a dragonmarked member of House Ghallanda, you are treated with respect within your house and you can leverage that power to secure lodging and food for yourself and your companions.  Your dragonmark also seems to have a soothing effect on everyone you meet, making it easier for you to negotiate.

Benefit: You may secure free room and board at any Ghallanda-owned establishment for yourself and up to 8 companions.  You also gain a +2 bonus to Diplomacy checks.

Level 5 Feature

   The adventuring life often leads one to sleep in strange placesHowever, your dragonmark gives you the talent to making even a makeshift campsite seem as comfortable as a fine inn.  Your companions find they always feel well rested while in your company.

Benefit: At the end of each extended rest, you and your allies gain temporary hit points equal to your highest ability modifier + one-half your level.
