Talaran Tracking (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Talaran Tracking [General]
You are adept at tracking down individuals within Urban Environments and Communities
Prerequisite: Be born in the city of Talara
Benefit: To find the trail of an individual or to follow said trail for up to one hour requires a Gather Information check. You must make another Gather Information check every hour you search, as well as each time the trail becomes more difficult to follow, such as when it takes you to a different part of town. The DC of the check, and the number of checks required to track down you quarry, depends on the community size and the prevailing conditions. If you fail a check, you can retry after one hour of questioning; the Dungeon Master should roll the number of checks required secretly, so that the player doesn't know exactly how much time the task will require. You can cut the time between Gather Information checks in half (from 1 hour to 30 minutes), but you take a -5 penalty on the check. Obviously, this feat will not allow you to locate someone who has gone beyond the boundaries of the community, but it could inform you that they've done so.
