Special Abilities

Lore-Broker (Ex) Ghrribbeet The Broker treats all Knowledge skills as his class skills, gains an insight bonus to all Knowledge checks equal to his Hit Dice, can take 10 on any Knowledge checks, and can take 20 on Knowledge check once per day. He also ignores racial prerequisite of Breadth Of Experience feat.

Ghrribbeet The Broker is a dedicated businessman dealing in knowledge of all kinds. Secret lore, public gossip, ancient stories, and the current news, he tries to keep track of everything. Whatever knowledge he gathers, it is open for exchange. He will trade gossip for gossip, secret for secret... As long as the discussion happens in a civilized way over an exquisite feast and a bottle of fine liquor. He will eagerly trade information when conjured but his payment must involve both interesting information (or stories and legends) and high quality feast. As a connoisseur of tastes and experiences, he does not find any food repugnant or odious, though he won't tolerate bland meals. As an outsider he does not have to eat in the first place, so why would he lower himself to feeding on anything that does not agitate his sense of smell and taste.

Ghrribbeet The Broker avoids fighting. He will flee when possible, negotiate when escape is unlikely and won't agree to fight for others, regardless of offered payment, though he might share information about available mercenary forces for a fee. He is a jovial fellow that does not hold grudge against others for reasons other than direct violence against his person (including coercing him to fight with magic). He doesn't mind other joking at his expense or being lied to. He won't tell lies while trading information, though he is not above telling lies in casual conversation or omitting information if not directly asked about them.
