Far Strider (3.5e Template)
From D&D Wiki
A far strider is a template that can be added to any elf, 1/2 elf or human. They are rare wanderers who travel the multiverse with ease.
Far striders are rare in the extreme. Who knows why the gods bless (or curse, as some might say) someone as a far strider. Ancestry seems to have no affect on who becomes a far walker. Far walkers always seem to be wanderers who travel almost constantly. Most seem almost driven to experience new locations. Due to their constant travels they tend to be as knowledgeable as most sages and to have a much broader base of information.
