From the Pantry: Now That's Cooking with Class

From the Pantry, an exclusive Star Wars Roleplaying Resources feature is here! Let the food and drink expert show you how to spice up parties or cantinas with exotic, interesting, and different food and drinks from around the galaxy.




Instead of the food that traditionally comes out of the pantry here at Star Wars Roleplaying Resources, the Chefs in the pantry are serving up something that has never been done here, a prestige class -- The Chef

The chef is an individual who is a master of culinary arts. Unique spices are his tools as he makes masterpieces for the galaxy to enjoy. By the time that a Chef has taken this prestige class, he is probably an associate chef at a large restaurant, or the head chef at a small one.

Specialty Dish
At 1st, 3rd, and 5th level the chef designates one food item as a specialty dish. The chef gains a +5 bonus to the Profession (Cook) check to cook this food. Each time the chef gains this ability, he must choose a different dish.

Kitchen Leadership
By directing the actions of others, a chef can increase their chances of success at cooking food. This requires a Diplomacy Check (DC 10 + the number of assistant chefs to be assisted) and a full-round action. A success grants a competence bonus on all his assistant chefs Profession (Cook) checks for a single task. The bonus is +3 for any of the chef’s specialty dishes and +2 for any other dish. All assistants to be affected must be within sight and voice range of the chef and be able to understand him.

Chef Specialty
At 4th level, the chef gains a chef specialty from the following list.

  • Nutritionist - This chef has studied nutrition and knows how to maximize the nutritional value of food. Two extra vitality points are restored by consuming dishes that this chef has cooked.
  • Tasty Ingredients – food that the chef cooks tastes better than normal food. The price is increased by 25% when purchasing food from this cook. This chef gains a +3 bonus to the profession aspect of the Profession (Cook) skill.
  • Diversified Specialties – This chef gains another Specialty Dish.
  • Head Chef Leadership – This chef gains a +2 bonus to diplomacy checks used for the Kitchen Leadership ability and may grants an additional +1 bonus to each assistant chef.

Important Note: Usage of this Prestige Class revolves around the Revised Profession Skill Rules found here.
