All feats in the Savage Tidings and Savage Tide Player’s Guide are available to characters fulfilling the prerequisites.


New characters starting at a level higher than first may equipment themselves with gear equal to the value listed on page 135 of the DMG for their level. No single item may be worth more than half of the value. For example, a 7th level character would have 19000g worth of gear and cannot have a single piece of gear worth more than 9500g.

Those who have item crafting feats and wish to use them to help stretch their gold need to speak with me before finalizing equipment.

Required character history items

  • Backstory regarding nobility, guild relationships, etc. that are part of a characer’s history
  • Character’s current profession
  • Character’s dream of greatness

Optional character history items:
  • Choose an Affiliation.

Old rules items

Until the end of “Bullywug Gambit”, new characters start with a level of NPC in addition to their normal class levels.

NPC Classes

For those with a level of NPC, you may take your District Feat as a free feat. If your district offers multiple feat options, choose only one.

Those with the extra NPC class level are not to count this towards their level for the purpose of starting gold.
