Metaspell [Magical]

You can learn metamagically-enhanced spells instead of standard spells.

Prerequisite

Ability to cast Arcane spells without preparation (like a bard or sorcerer).

Benefit

When you gain new spells, you have the option of learning a metamagically-enhanced spell in place of another spell of the appropriate level. This spell takes up a spell-slot appropriate for the normal level of the spell, modified by the metamagic feat used to augment the spell. You do not need to know the base spell nor the metamagic feat used to modify the spell in order to use this feat. Once a metamagically-enhanced spell is learned in this manner, you cannot cast the spell without its metamagic enhancement, though you can augment the spell in standard fashion with additional metamagic feats. A metamagic spell learned in this fashion is treated as a normal spell, and as such does not increase the time needed to cast the spell.

Example

A sorcerer normally gains a 5th level spell upon attaining 10th level. Instead of learning a standard 5th level spell, a Sorcerer with the Metaspell feat could learn an Empowered fireball spell (3rd level spell +2 spell levels for the Empower feat).


Notes

This may be appropriate as a house rule for many campaigns without requiring purchase as a feat.
