Burden of Knowledge Scholars are no more prone to panic or fear than other people – indeed, absent-minded scientists may not even notice the danger – but they have a –4 penalty to Madness checks. An ordinary person might be disturbed by a literally impossible event, such as a non-Euclidean shape, but a scholar has a deeper understanding of the universe. An impossible event undercuts everything he knows and puts everything into doubt. The more you know, the greater the shock when it all becomes a lie.
Pause to Consider At 4th level 3 times per day a Scholar may reroll a failed knowledge check after one minute of contemplation.
