Basic Local Info


Knowledge (local) represents a deep familiarity with the people and customs of one or more cities. Just as each point of Performance skill gives you access to a new style, each level of Knowledge (local) provides you with information about a different community.

Check: You can make a Knowledge (local) check to pick up any sort of basic information about any community that you are familiar with. What’s the ritziest tavern? What districts should you avoid after dark? Where’s the black market? Why are all the people wearing their hats backwards? It does not replace Gather Information. Think of Knowledge (local) as a guidebook; it can provide you with a great deal of useful information, but it won’t be completely up to the minute. If you want to know the current state of tensions between the dwarves and the humans, or what happened to old Smitty, or if Frederic Silverhand has been seen in town recently, you’ll need to use Gather Information.

Special: If you have 5 ranks in Knowledge (local), you get a +2 synergy bonus to all general-purpose Gather Information checks within communities covered by the skill. This does not apply to attempts to direct a conversation, but does apply to urban tracking.
