Airship master

You once helmed the wheel of an airship which ferried either people or cargo between major cities. Having seen it all from the clouds, you are familiar with all major landmarks and cities without consulting maps. You are equally well-versed in the mechanisms powering airships, and are fascinated by the newest models.

Skill Proficiencies: Arcana, Perception
Tool Proficiencies: Navigator’s kit, vehicles (air)
Equipment: A navigator’s kit, a spyglass, a set of explorer’s clothes, and a belt pouch containing 10 gp.

Feature: Free Ride
One way or another, you can find free fare on an airship if you need it. Whether this means calling in a favor with an associate you once ran deliveries for, or using your knowledge of the nooks and crannies in airships to stowaway for the trip, you can always get into the sky.

Suggested Characteristics
Natural explorers and pioneers, airship masters are rarely comfortable in one place, but are fearless when entering the unknown. After having the freedom of commanding an airship of their own, most airship masters are reluctant to go back to following orders

1 I superstitiously perform a small number of rituals before take-off.

4 I can always be found wearing my favorite cloak.

d6 Bond
1 I once saw a dragon made of crystal flying in the northern mountains – I fly in the hopes of seeing this creature again.
2 I seek revenge on the bandits who raided my airship and blew it out of the sky.
