Primeval Thule: Freeblade Background for D&D 5th Edition

Backgrounds here are bases on the Narratives in Primeval Thule, so they will gain abilities as a character levels.  They are only intended for use in the Primeval Thule setting and are not designed to be mixed with standard Backgrounds.

Also, some of the abilities require the expenditure of a resource, for this reason and for how dangerous the setting is, each character gains the Lucky Feat for free and may take the Lucky Feat one additional time.


Freeblade 


Skill Proficiencies (1st level): You are Proficient in Athletics, Investigation, and Persuasion.

Langauges (1st level): Choose 1 from Low Atlantean, Dhari, Kalayan, Lomari, Nimothan, or Ungari.

Tools Proficiencies (1st level): Any one.

 Sellsword (6th level): Whenever you are paid gold for your services, you get 50% more gold. In addition, add double your proficiency bonus to Athletics, Investigation, and Persuasion.

Finally, you may use your reaction to have your guards use the help action.
