A collection of new chains that go well with the Geomancer, these [Terrain] feats allow a character to feel a more spiritual or magical connection to various terrains without needing to go the Pathfinder route. If you include these in your game, then each of the basic feats also count as their respective Pathfinder Basics feat (Aquatic = Sea-Home, Arctic = Snow-Home, Caverns/Mountains = Peak-Home, Desert = Sand-Home, Forest/Jungle = Wood-Home, Indoors/Settled = Hearth-Home, Plains = Prairie-Home, and Swamp = Mire-Home). This is a work-in-progress; stay tuned for more of them!
SEA-HOME BASICS [Terrain]
There is something to be learned from the waves crashing against the shoreline, and you listen to their lessons.
Benefit: You gain the Aquatic I and Superior Swimmer II NPC qualities. Also, you gain a stance.
• Swift as a Coursing River (Stance): You treat your Dexterity as 4 higher as long as you are underwater or are in contact with the Aquatic terrain. You remain in this stance even if prone, but immediately leave it if you are no longer in contact with the terrain.
SEA-HOME MASTERY [Terrain]
Water is life, and no one knows this better than you.
Prerequisite: Sea-Home Basics
Benefit: You are always considered to have a Doctor's Bag while underwater or in the Aquatic terrain. Also, you gain a trick.
• Aqua Vitae (Mend Trick): With success, the target also loses 1 grade of Fatigued or Shaken. With a critical success, he loses 1 grade of each.
SEA-HOME SUPREMACY [Terrain]
You don't even need to think about holding your breath anymore.
Prerequisite: Sea-Home Mastery
Benefit: Your Aquatic and Superior Swimmer NPC qualities increase to II and IV, respectively. Also, you gain a trick.
• Landswallow (Unarmed Attack Trick): Make an attack against a 5ft. square solid ground (Defense 10). On a success, that square (and ONLY that square) counts as Aquatic terrain up to 50 feet straight up. Any character in that square is considered to be underwater and in the Aquatic terrain. The square returns to normal after after a number of rounds equal to your Terrain feats.
PEAK-HOME BASICS [Terrain]
You feel most comfortable with two feet planted firmly on the ground.
Benefit: You gain the Improved Stability NPC quality; if you already had it, you now count as being an additional Size category larger. You also gain a stance.
• Stone-Shaker (Stance): Whenever you make a hurled attack using a rock, you may apply the Excruciating, Finesse, and Massive qualities to it. You may not take move actions (though you may still take 5-ft. Bonus Steps), and you leave this stance whenever you do not benefit from Improved Stability.
PEAK-HOME MASTERY [Terrain]
You feel the tremors beneath your feet, and you listen to what they have to say.
Prerequisite: Peak-Home Basics
Benefit: As long as you are benefiting from Improved Stability, you gain the Blindsight NPC quality. Also, you gain a trick.
• Dust-Quaker (Refresh Trick): Also, you may make a free Trip attempt against all adjacent characters. If any character scores a threat on their Acrobatics check, or if you suffer an error, you immediately fall prone.
PEAK-HOME SUPREMACY [Terrain]
Who needs a shovel when you're around?
Prerequisite: Peak-Home Mastery
Benefit: You gain a burrowing speed equal to half your land speed, and you benefit from Improved Stability while burrowing. Also, you gain a trick.
• Earth-Breaker (Hurled or Unarmed Attack Trick): A number of times per scene equal to your starting action dice, you may select the point of origin for this attack from anywhere within your Blindsight range.

Reads headline: That's a terrible idea
Watches video: That's an idea that the phrase "whitewashing feature-length failure" pretty much seems to effortlessly sum up.
While I'm sure it will be a disaster, the Major's ethnicity is purposefully never confirmed in any of her versions. Mokoto Kusinagi isn't her real name and her body is a highly upgraded common and nondescript civilian model.
If the Chief, Saito, Togusa, and Isikawa are cast as Europeans, then yeah, its whitewashing.
That said, I think Johansson is not right for the role. Her appearance is too striking for the Major.
