I also need to pick a region where she's famous. Or, perhaps easier, you can just let me know where it is and what it's name is?
The guide to Talingarde doesn't concern itself with such small settlements, the smallest named settlement has 1,200, so feel free to invent a place. The major areas of the realms are
The Cambrian Ports - The cultural and trade centre of the kingdom.
The Heartlands - The breadbasket of the kingdom.
The Borderlands - The northern edge of Talingarde, folk here are a little rougher as the land is less bountiful, but Mitra's grace still shines upon them.
Just curious, since that's a big benefit, are human characters getting anything to make up for the fact other races are getting their racial benefit?
Fast learner is a feat that grants 2 favoured class bonuses / level instead of just one, human's don't get the benefits by default so the house rule buffs them just as much. Whilst Fast Leaner is a bonus only feat and thus is slightly more valuable to non-humans, to me that doesn't seem to be a big enough of an issue to give humans extra stuff over.
I assumed they stacked (humans get +2 skill points and +1 HP per level).
Correct, though do note that you can also choose to take your racial favoured class options on one side if you wish.
