Flaws Ophidiophobia (Indy's fear of snakes imposes a –2 penalty on all attack rolls, checks, and saves so long as any live snake remains knowingly close to him. Every minute, he must succeed on a Will save DC 20 to remain near or move toward a live snake that is within 30 feet of him. Failure means he must stay outside that range. If he is unable to stay outside the range, he suffers the cowering condition (no actions, loses Dex mod and –2 to Defense, lasts 10 rounds). Should he fail the Will save by 5+, he suffers the cowering condition. If he succeeds on the Will save by 10+, he may physically interact with any live snake for one round.)—Bonus feat selected: Streetfighting
