  • Saving Throw: Diplomats get +1 on saving throws vs. charm, illusion, or deception.
  • XP Bonus for Charisma: This class bonus is due to a high charisma attribute.
  • Read Languages: 2 in 6 chance of deciphering any modern language.
  • Gossip: 3 in 6 chance of knowing useful gossip. Increases to 4 in 6 at 5th level.
