As a part of a long rest, you can choose a number of creatures up to twice your proficiency bonus. When they finish their long rest, they may expend hit dice up to their proficiency bonus. If they do, they gain an equal number of Training Points.
When a creature makes a Strength or Dexterity ability check, they may expend 1 Training Point to gain advantage on the roll. The Training Points last for 24 hours, but are lost early if they benefit from this ability again, or if the creature falls unconscious.

Expedition Leader

You gain proficiency with navigator’s tools. If you are already proficient, you gain expertise instead.
