Suggestions to improve the viability and balance of adventurers who have chosen the Scholar profession:
Broaden the Find Supplies active skill to include scrolls/lore.
When generating advanced-level characters, include a simple mechanic to account for the collection of scrolls over the course of adventure. I propose:
Roll 1d4 for every 40,000 experience points granted to reflect the number of scrolls found
Roll d20 for each successful find to determine which scroll was collected, referring to the list of scrolls on pp. 62-63 (20 scrolls possible, excluding the rarest scroll, Vallicast’s Chorus of Pain, which cannot be found by chance)
