Feature: Clan Bonds

Clansdwarfs are very tightly knit groups, often with extended relatives scattered across holds, mines and other dwarven communities. Whenever this character encounters a community of dwarfs, he can invoke his familial bonds and find shelter for himself and his companions at a modest standard. In addition, the clan leader or head of family will provide one boon of knowledge to the character if he seeks it, and is something the dwarf community would reasonably know.
