With a camp steward
organizing and delegating, everyone in camp receives a +1 bonus to all
skill checks that would benefit from an orderly and well-maintained camp,
such as Survival checks to find food
or Perception checks while on guard. A Steward reduces the cost of a single
characters lifestyle by 10% as long as he remains employed. See
the Cost of Living section on page 405 of the Pathfinder Roleplaying
Well-versed in motivational
techniques, a steward can help coordinate complicated tasks, taking much
of the stress and confusion out of the process. Once per day, a steward
may make an aid another check using the Profession
skill rather than the relevant skill.
PaymasterEntrusting NPCs with up-front payment is a risky proposition. Nothing guarantees that a lazy porter or shiftless guard wont disappear in the night with a months advance pay. On the other hand, not paying a follower is a recipe for disaster. A steward can safeguard funds and dispense them in a timely manner whether their employer is deep within the wilderness or trapped in a foul dungeon. So long as hirelings are paid in a timely manner, their attitude improves by one category; assume the default attitude for a hireling is indifferent, modified by treatment and working conditions.
