Technical information: Brokenbones is TL4 (Age of Sail). The only exception to this is that stoutfolk sailing technology has not progressed enough to include ocean travel – that’s for elves, and all the elves are dead! This means you can have hand cannons, matchlocks and flintlocks. Keep in mind that these are not completely widespread so finding ammunition (powder, really) in a pinch will be a problem.

Claim to Hospitality (Clan) {+5} – if you want to find anyone of your clan, you have to start asking around, own a genealogical book which is an advantage — Signature Gear [+1] — or have the skill Genealogy IQ/A, which functions like Area Knowledge – the wider the area the less specific your knowledge.
