Craft (Body Paint)

Key Attribute: Wisdom

With this skill, you can apply body paint in specialized designs. At their most basic, they can serve as identification or self-expression. As you become more proficient in this skill, your body paint begins to capture some of the ancient power of your people.

It takes 1 hour to apply a body paint design. The amount of time may be halved by taking a -10 penalty to the skill roll. The effects last for 12 hours, or until washed off or removed.

Rank 1 Ability

With one rank in Craft (body paint), you may use your knowledge at the most basic level. Your designs serve as identification, and can have minor effects in certain specific circumstances.
