Cunning Plan Once per week, Daren may create a detailed plan to achieve a specific goal. Any follower that is part of this plan receives a +2 bonus on all skill checks related to this plan, as long as the followers perform Daren’s instructions to the letter. The bonus is lost if the followers diverge from the plan, or if 48 hours elapse after the plan is begun. Daren does not receive this bonus for his plan.
Dwarven Traits (Ex) Dwarves have +1 racial bonus to attack rolls against orcs and goblinoids, +2 racial bonus to Will saves against spells and spell-like abilities, +2 racial bonus to Fortitude saves against all poisons, +4 dodge bonus against giants, and Darkvision that lets them see with no light source at all, to a range of 60 feet. A dwarf who merely comes within ten feet of unusual stonework can make a Search check with a +2 racial bonus as though actively searching for stonework traps.
Followers Daren’s cohort is an 8th-level drow sorcerer named Quellic who poses as a dwarf by wearing a ring of seeming (see Chapter Three). The eight followers in his inner circle are miners and traders (1st-level experts). Daren receives +2 modifier to his Leadership score for recruiting cohorts and followers.
Goal Remake the Silver Deeps into an orderly state that embraces the ideals of the drow realms.
Judge Loyalty Daren gains a +2 insight bonus to any Sense Motive check he makes to determine a follower’s loyalty or state of mind.
Useful Advice Once per day, Daren may give a follower useful advice about an upcoming skill check, such as setting a trap or bluffing a guard. Daren must have at least 5 ranks in the relevant skill, and the follower must perform the skill check within 24 hours of receiving the advice. The follower receives a competence bonus to the check equal to the lower of either +4 or the number of ranks Daren has in the skill.
