Feature: Blessings of Gaia[edit]

Armor of Gaia: As a bonus action, you may conjure a suit of armor made of sylvan materials. Hard leaves and bark, mossy stone, or braided roots wreath around your body. As long as you are wearing no armor already, your Armor Class equals 10 + your Dexterity modifier + your Wisdom modifier. You may dismiss your armor or alter its appearance as a bonus action. While you have your Armor of the Wilds active, you are considered armored.

Weapons of Gaia: You can use your bonus action to create a Sylvan Weapon in your empty hand. You can choose the form that this weapon takes each time you create it (see chapter 5 for weapon options). This weapon counts as magical for the purpose of overcoming resistance and immunity to nonmagical attacks and damage. Your Sylvan weapon disappears if it is more than 5 feet away from you for 1 minute or more. It also disappears if you use this feature again, if you dismiss the weapon (no action required), or if you die.

Alternate Feature:[edit]

You have an excellent memory for maps and geography, and you can always recall the general layout of terrain, settlements, and other features around you. In addition, you can find food and freshwater for yourself and up to five other people each day, provided that the land offers berries, small game, water, and so forth.
