Lighthouse for the Blind
In Athas, where you character comes from can help
dictate his speech, clothing, world view, and values. In
the context of the game, these cultural differences are
expressed in the choices of class, skills, feats, and prestige
classes that characters from different regions make.
This section describes the most common choices of
game‐related options for several known regions of Athas.
These choices are not meant to be restrictive, since
exceptions always exist to such general rules. They simply
offer guidelines for making a character seem like a true
representative of his native culture.
Classes, skills, feats, and prestige classes marked with
an asterisk are new to this book. Prestige classes marked
with a superscript APX (APX) are from the Prestige Class
Appendixes, feats, prestige classes marked with a
superscript FFN (FFN) are from Faces of the Forgotten North,
skills, feats, and prestige classes marked with a
superscript LSH (LSH) are from Life‐Shaping Handbook, and
classes, feats, and prestige classes marked with a
superscript XPH (XPH) are from the Expanded Psionics
Handbook. All other classes, skills, feats, and prestige
classes mentioned here can be found in the core rulebooks
(the Player’s Handbook and the Dungeon Master’s Guide).
