Skyclad [General][edit]

A character with this feat gains certain advantages when in a state of ritual nudity or near-nudity.

Prerequisites[edit]

Knowledge (arcane) 2 ranks.

Benefit[edit]

In order to benefit from this feat, the character must currently be in the form of a living creature of the humanoid or fey type, and must have a body primarily covered in bare skin (i.e. not fur, feathers, scales etc): as a general rule, humanoids can't qualify if they have natural armour (but fey races can). Characters under the influence of skin-altering spells such as iron body or stoneskin can't benefit, but barkskin is an exception. In addition, the character must be nude or nearly so (e.g. wearing a loincloth). Headgear is permitted, as are bracers, gloves/gauntlets, a belt, and footwear. The character cannot use any magic item which occupies the "vest", "armour/robe" or "cloak" body slots, or any unslotted item normally attached to clothing (such as a brooch). Goggles, amulets and rings aren't classed as clothing and can be worn, and a shield can be used if the character is proficient (a character using a shield without proficiency isn't considered "skyclad"). A backpack can be worn, but the character's overall encumbrance must not exceed a light load. In situations where clothing is mandatory, a wraparound cloak can be worn and discarded when necessary (a move-equivalent action that can be combined with an actual move, like drawing a weapon).

If all of these conditions are met, a skyclad character with this feat enters a state of heightened awareness, gaining a +1 bonus on Listen and Spot checks. Futhermore, the character may apply his/her Wisdom bonus to armour class, just as a monk can: except that the character gets a minimum +1 AC bonus even without a Wisdom bonus, and the bonus stacks with that of a shield, but doesn't stack with the "exalted" AC bonus provided by the Vow of Poverty feat.
