With the last guttural utterance, your
fingers thicken and your arms lengthen
slightly. You have the impression that
you would feel more at ease in a canopy
of trees.
You gain a +10 competence bonus on
Climb checks made in trees. As long
as you remain at least 10 feet above
the ground, you can brachiate (swing
by branches and vines) in medium or
dense forest, but not in sparse forest.
When you brachiate, you gain a 10-foot
enhancement bonus to your land speed
and ignore the hampered movement
penalties for undergrowth and other
terrain features. You can charge while
brachiating, but you can’t run. Naturally,
some local conditions, such as
areas of sparse forest, clearings, wide
rivers, or other breaks in the forest
canopy, might force you to return to
the ground.
