Diviner’s Fortune (Ex): When you activate this school power, you can touch any creature as a standard action to give it an insight bonus on all of its attack rolls, skill checks, ability checks, and saving throws equal to 1/2 your wizard level (minimum + 1) for 1 round.
Forewarned (Su): You can always act in the surprise round even if you fail to make a Perception roll to notice a foe, but you are still considered flat-footed until you take an action.
Harrowed (Ex): You get a +1 bonus on all Will saves made to resist enchantment effects. Once per day, you may draw a card from a Harrow deck you own. At any one time for the rest of that day, you may apply a +2 bonus on any d20 roll modified by the card’s suit. For example, if you drew a card from the suit of Dexterity, you could apply this +2 bonus on an Initiative check, a Reflex save, a Dexterity-based skill check, or a ranged attack roll. You may assign this +2 bonus after you make the roll, but you must do so before you know whether the roll was a success or not.
My mother, Desmonda, was a seer. She supported us by giving fortunes. She was quite good it seemed. I was left to my own a lot, but she was all I had. There were a few friends in the neighborhood that came and went.
I read all the books she accumulated. Some of the books she had were old text books of the wizards’ school. We never had the money for me to go to the Arcana Acadamae or the other schools. But a couple of individual pages tucked into her books were excerpts spells. That is where I compiled my own spell list. She schooled me as best as she could.
Our house was the most colorful in the neighborhood. Mom would trade fortunes for work being done and sometimes for food.
Since Desmonda has passed on (just last week), I have been doing some fortune telling. I can usually make enough to eat. I still have the house but I don’t know how much longer I can keep it.
