    I have no idea. Do you want to be a little more specific?

    Is it a term from a game? Which game? Do you have any general idea what it is?

    prow⋅ess (praʊɪs)
    n.
    1. exceptional valor, bravery, or ability, esp. in combat or battle.
    2. exceptional or superior ability, skill, or strength: "his prowess as a public speaker."
    3. a valiant or daring deed.

    c.1290, prouesse, from O.Fr. proece (Fr. prouesse), from prou, variant of prud "brave, valiant," from V.L. *prodem (cf. Sp. proeza, It. prodezza; see proud). Prow was in M.E. as a noun meaning "advantage, profit," also as a related adj., but it has become obsolete.

    If you're talking about "prowess" in context of my d20 Rebirth material, it goes with these.

    oh sorry its just that some homebrewish classes have things like

    "...gains 2 points of prowess each level..."

    i just wanted to know if this was from a book i havent seen or it was a homebrew mechanic. And if it is from a book the what does it do?

    ..ohh.
