Merit Badge[edit]

These are merit badges available for selection from the Scout class abilities. Merit badges may be combat feats, skill feats, or sphere-equivalents. If the merit badge is a feat, the Scout gains the benefit of that feat. A scout who has chosen a sphere-equivalent merit badge is able to use all of the abilities within that badge up to his character level. If he gains more levels, more powers of the badge become available. A Scout only has basic access to the badge unless he chooses to delve further into that sphere after gaining a rank.
