Foreign Technique Study (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
 Foreign Technique Study [Technician]
Allows a technician to learn techniques of another technician class.
Benefit: At the time of taking, the technician may choose 1 technique of another technician class and add it to the technician's known techniques. The chosen technique may not be of a higher level than the technician would normally be able to learn. When performing this technique all rolls take a -4 penalty due to being an unusual technique. What techniques may not be learned by certain technicians is at the DM's discretion. This feat may be chosen multiple times allowing a new technique to be learned each time.
Normal: Technicians are normally allowed only a strict set of techniques to learn from majoring in their specific element that corresponds to their inner affinity.
