Choose a Class Edit

Amar is home to members of every class, including most prestige classes. For house rules for specific base and prestige classes, check Classes of Amar.

Skills Edit

At first level, each character chooses either a craft skill, a knowledge skill, perform skill, or a profession skill. She always is treated as having maximum skill ranks in that skill.


  • When selecting the knowledge (local) skill, chose a region from among the regions within Amar. You may make knowledge (local) checks within that region with no penalty. You may make such checks for other regions at a -4 penalty.
