- Type of feat: Racial
- Prerequisite: Dwarves and Svirfneblin
- Required for: None
- Specifics: This grants a +2 Search bonus when indoors.
- Use: Automatic
This ability grants a +2 racial bonus on Search checks to notice unusual stonework, such as sliding walls, stonework traps, new construction (even when built to match the old), unsafe stone surfaces, shaky stone ceilings, and the like. Something that isn’t stone but that is disguised as stone also counts as unusual stonework.
A character with this ability who merely comes within 10 feet of unusual stonework can make a Search check as if he were actively searching, and can use the Search skill to find stonework traps as a rogue can. The character can also intuit depth, sensing his approximate depth underground as naturally as a human can sense which way is up.
