Human Paragon[edit]

Design Note: This is based on UA:Human Paragon. It also uses Downtime Activity Proficiencies (5e Variant Rule).

Human Paragon[edit]

Human inventors, explorers, and others who push the boundaries of knowledge and experience may become human paragons. They turn adversity into opportunity by finding new ways to apply their skills, discovering new techniques to solve problems, and challenging entropy by constantly seeking out ventures they have not yet mastered. Humans, and the paragons who rise from among them, balance strength with agility and temper intellect with intuition.
