You cannot read, but you have devoted yourself to learning other skills.


Choose any one skill except Decipher Script or Forgery. You gain a +1 bonus on checks using that skill.


You are illiterate.


You can eliminate the negative effect of this trait by spending 2 skill points to become literate. Unlike with the barbarian, you cannot become literate by taking a level in any class other than barbarian.

You can't select this trait if your character is already illiterate because of race, class, or any other reason.

Roleplaying Ideas

Characters with this trait might be sensitive about not being able to read, or they might not value "book learnin'."
