Profession Cook

New Condition
A nourished character can run as if she possessed the Run feat, and is granted a +1 circumstance bonus to Strength and Dexterity based checks, as well as a +4 circumstance bonus vs effects that cause fatigue or exhaustion. Becoming fatigued or doing anything that would cause fatigue removes this condition. Otherwise, it fades after one hour.

Profession (Cook)
You are skilled at preparing exceptionally nourishing meals.
Check: Preparing a meal has a DC of 10 (for a decent meal), 20 (good meal), 30 (extraordinary meal), or 40 (legendary meal). You need ingredients, and a suitable kitchen or equivalent work space. Without a proper kitchen, you take -4 on your cooking check. Cooking without ingredients is impossible.

  • Decent Meal: A decent meal grants the nourished condition
  • Good Meal: A good meal grants a +1 circumstance bonus on fort saves for the condition’s duration, in addition to the benefits of a decent meal.
  • Extraordinary Meal: In addition to the effects of a good meal, an extraordinary meal grants 2d8 temporary hit points per 4 HD, they last for a number of hours equal to your (HD / 4) minimum one hour.
  • Legendary Meal: A legendary meal grants the effects of an extraordinary meal, as well as a +2 circumstance bonus to all saves, and Fast Healing 1 for one hour.
    Action: Preparing a meal takes a half-hour, although a particularly intricate or important meal may take longer, at the GM’s discretion.
    Try Again: Yes, but every time you prepare a meal any ingredients used are consumed.

A cook can enhance her meals with one of these modifiers with a decent or good meal, two modifiers with an extraordinary meal, or three modifiers with a legendary meal.
Special: A spellcasting chef who uses one of her meals as a material component of her spell doubles the bonus of that spell; this is only applicable to spells that share the same name as the modifiers below.
Note: A character cannot benefit from a modifier more than once in a 24-hour period.

Ant Haul The target’s carrying capacity triples. This does not affect the creature’s actual Strength in any way, merely the amount of material it can carry while benefiting from this modifier. It also has no effect on encumbrance due to armor. If the creature wears armor it still takes the normal penalties for doing so regardless of how much weight the meal allows it to carry. 3 ranks 1 hour per level
Blessing of Courage and Life The target receives a +2 morale bonus on saving throws against fear and death effects. At any time while the modifier is in effect, the target can choose to end the modifier as a swift action for a burst of healing energy. The target loses the saving throw bonus, but is healed of 1d8 points of damage plus 1 point per character level (maximum plus 10). 5 ranks 5 rounds per level

Heroes’ Feast The feast takes 1 hour to consume, and the beneficial effects do not set in until this hour is over. Every creature partaking of the feast is cured of all sickness and nausea, receives the benefits of both neutralize poison and remove disease.
