Given recent posts about the weather algorithm and why it’s so important, I figure today is a good day to describe one of the abilities that makes it important: Natural Empathy.
Natural Empathy is just like it sounds. At low levels it gives the character a vague sense of the attitudes of animals, but as a character progresses in levels he gains the ability to know how the weather will behave over time, see the memories of plants, and even see as if from anywhere in a contiguous natural body up to a certain distance.
Elves, Druids, and Rangers get Natural Empathy automatically. However, any character who spends significant time in nature can get it cross-class or as a backstory ability..
Would you like to have a sense of nature through natural empathy? How would you intend to use it? Let us know in the comments below.
