Arcane Schooling

Type: Regional
Sources: Forgotten Realms Campaign Setting
Player's Guide to Faerûn

In your homeland, all who show some skill at the Art may receive training as arcane spellcasters. Thus, many characters know something of the ways of the bard, the sorcerer, or the wizard.
Prerequisite: Deep Imaskari (Underdark [Deep Imaskar]), human (Chessenta, the Golden Water, Halruaa, Lantan, Mulhorand, Nimbral, Unther, or the Wizards' Reach), or planetouched (Chessenta).
Benefit: Choose one arcane spellcasting class (bard, sorcerer, or wizard). You can activate spell trigger magic items as if you had 1 level in the selected class. The selected class also becomes a favored class for you in addition to any other favored class you have or select. For example, a multiclass human fighter/rogue who selects wizard for this feat could add levels of wizard without taking any experience penalty for multiclassing in three classes.
Special: You may select this feat only as a 1st-level character. You may have only one regional feat.
