Griffon Talents

No thread for Griffon talents yet? For shame! Well, here's a few:

Aura of Menace - Daily
Preparation Time: 5 Minutes
You channel your leonine disposition into an aura of palpable danger. For the next ten minutes, every creature within 15 feet of you is treated as under the effects of your Half-Lion racial talent. Using Aura of Menace also expends the daily use of Half-Lion.

All That Glitters - Magic
You may designate up to two and a half cubic feet of gold, gemstones, fine silks, rare spices, or other valuables as your Trove. For the next four hours, you know the exact location of any item from your Trove, and any attempt to hide these items from you automatically fail.

Lions and Eagles (Both Quite Regal)
Your majestic visage and haughty nature strongly appeal to the nobility. All non-griffon members of the aristocracy, upon first meeting you, will treat you as an equal (or at the very least as a minor noble), although they still won't tolerate repeated social faux pas from you. You might also be asked to pose for coats of arms fairly often.

I dunno, this seems more like a Daily thing than something that should cost a magic point, but then, what do I know?

Griffons are already in the Player's Handbook with some fairly decent racial traits and 2 race specific utility talents.

Neutral I... yes. Yes they are. I noticed.

It's just that we already had threads on this forum entitled "Pegasus talents", " Unicorn talents", " EARTH PONY TALENTS!!!!!", and "Changeling Talents". So four out of the five already-implemented races had a thread dedicated to giving them more race-specific utility talents - in that case, why not start a thread for the fifth?

Indeed, why not?

Here's some ideas:

Feathered Free-for-Fall*
You take no damage from falling from any height less than 50 ft (15.24 meters).

Beak, Talon, and Tail
Your increased strength, multiple suitable limbs, and muscular adaptability allow you to move several objects at once. You may hold/and or manipulate the position of up to three objects of medium size and weight without any loss of Precision or checks to balance/carry/etc. it all.

Squawk if you Rock* Daily
Griffons [and hippogriffs[and possibly changelings?]] may communicate in a variety of ways that are simply a puzzlement to other creatures. You can send out an instantaneous message of three words or less in a circular area of 1 mile or less. Though all can hear this message clearly, only griffons [and hippogriffs[and possibly changelings?]] can understand it.

Keen Hunter Daily
A griffin is never at a lack of food, though the food it finds may not necessarily be the most appealing for herbivores to watch being eaten. When you use this talent, roll a D20 plus your Perception. If the total is 15 or above, you find food for yourself and may gain a +2 morale boost to all your skill checks for the rest of the day.

*This may also work as a Hippogriff talent!
