You are among the few mortals who have gained standing with the Fey, whether by inherited right of blood from a parent, from time spent among the Fey, or as a gift. In the Feywild, you have can move more readily through the precarious web of social obligation and courtly comportment practiced by the Fey. Work with your DM to decide how you earned the feymark and if you have served in a Fey Court.
Skill Proficiencies:Insight and Persuasion
Tool Proficiencies:Calligrapher’s Tools
Equipment: Bronze torc denoting standing with the Fey (either neck or armband), set of fine court clothing, calligrapher’s supplies, and a leather purse containing 15gp.
Your intricate knowledge of the mannerisms, figures of speech, and fashions of the Fey mark you as an exotic enigma. Glances are directed your way wherever you go, which can be a nuisance, but you also gain the friendly interest of scholars and others intrigued by the far-off Feywild, to say nothing of everyday folk who are eager to hear stories of your exploits. You can parley this attention into access to people and places you might not otherwise have for you and your traveling companions. Noble lords, scholars, and merchant princes, to name a few, might be interested in hearing about your insight into the Fey homeland and people. Additionally, you and any companions on legitimate business with the Fey nobility have safe passage until that business is concluded and will not be harmed by the Fey, though some may try to goad you into breaking the peace and thus losing this protection.
