You know how to live off of the land. You excel at tracking, can tell what is edible and is not, and can identify that strange creature with ease. Throwing weapons and projectile weapons are your tools of trade and you can easily become a part of the environment you are in - as long as that environment isn't a city. You leave the heavy armor and the heavy weapons to others.

The Hunter Profession is all about living off of the land. They are a great part of any adventuring party as they would be able to find safe and edible food and water sources and handle the flying enemies with ease.

Starting Bonuses and Penalties

You already know that playing as a hunter gives your character 50 character points at character creation as well as 50 shillings per week salary. However these are not the only benefits a hunter receives.

Character Point Rate

Hunters are masters of living off of the land. They can track their target and do best when attacking from afar. Hunters specialize in skills that allow them to bring down their target from far away.

The Hunter's character point rate is:
  • Mental x 0.01; with an additional +0.2 for every level gained in Aiming past level 1 (total of +0.6 bonus possible). 
  • A hunter who gets all skills in one skill chain line of choice in Projectile Proficiency at level 1 gets to roll a 1d% increased by Mental as a percentage for extra character points.
  • A hunter who gets aall skills in one skill chain line of choice in Projectile Proficiency at level 4 gets to roll a 2d% increased by Mental as a percentage for extra character points.
  • A hunter who gets at least 1 level in every hunter skill gets their End of Session Bonus as extra character points.
  • A hunter's End of Session Bonus rate is your character point rate increased by 1/2 Perceive. So if your character point rate is 1.5 and your Perceive is 60, you would take 1.5 x 30 to get 45 extra character points at the end of the session. The GM can of course reward extra character points based on role playing. 

Skills

Hunters specialize in skills that deal with animals, hunting, and surviving off of the land. Any of the skills listed below has its character point cost cut in half.
