Civilization has taught you one thing: you don't fit in. You decided long ago that you want nothing to do with society or other intelligent beings, and moved to a secluded place. Your time away from society has taught you how to take care of yourself, but your social skills suffer. Being alone this long has maybe even damaged your sanity, if you had any to begin with. However, you find comfort in whatever animals you can coerce or endear into staying with you.

ECCENTRICITY

Your time alone has led you to develop an eccentricity in your behavior. It is something clearly noticeable, but without any major ramifications on your day-to-day life. Choose an eccentricity of your own, or roll on the table below.

d6 Eccentricity
1 I mutter to myself under my breath.
2 I name each animal I meet and treat them like a person.
3 I hoard a small, common object, such as a nut or keys.
4 I stare at whatever interests me, regardless of how socially acceptable it is.
5 I make noises whenever I am uncomfortable.
6 I have a trinket that I always keep with me in my hands.

FEATURE: HOVEL

Your time spent in the wilderness has taught you how to find and make cover in practically any circumstance. When you are in the wilderness, you have advantage on Wisdom (Survival) checks made to find shelter, and if you are unable to find shelter you are able to make shelter in half an hour using only the resources provided by nature. This shelter protects from most of the elements, though not from extreme weather or temperature.
