Vanaras with high Intelligence scores can choose from the following: Catfolk, Celestial, Gnoll, Gnome, Goblin, Sylvan, Tengu and Yutu.

You gain a +4 trait bonus on Fortitude saves to resist the effects of alcohol. You also gain a +4 trait bonus on Diplomacy checks to gather information when alcohol is involved. Diplomacy is a class skill for you.
