Feat Category?[edit]

Just a quick question, Green_Dragon: Would it be possible to make a category for the "D&D Feats" section? Apparently, it doesn't automatically create such an index, or am I just missing something (still being a "Wiki-n00b", so to speak)? I just noticed this that when I tried to add

[[Category:Dungeons and Dragons]]
[[Category:D&D Feats]]

to my feats.

Greetings, Ra-Tiel

Hey Ra-Tiel,
I have created a category for feats, but with the feat section of D&D Wiki it is going to work a little bit differently. There will be three categories for each feat: Dungeons and Dragons, D&D Feats, D&D [General,Class,Divine,etc] Feats.
I have not gotten around to putting them in every feat, so if you could help me, that would be wonderful!
To create a new category, first preview the page. Then press the new link (I open it in a new window), and type in something like: "This is all of the general feats on D&D Wiki."
Save it, and the category is created. Then go back to the page that the category is being added to, and save it. The category link should then be blue, and everything is doing great!
I was planning on putting feats off until the last (because there are so many, and they are all so different), but it would be great if you could help me!

"Categorized" every feat in the sections
  • Divine
  • Epic Divine
  • Epic
  • Familiar
  • Fighter
  • General
  • Metamagic
  • Metapsionic
  • Psionic
  • Racial
  • Variant
Hope I did it right?
Greetings, Ra-Tiel
Does there really need to be an "Epic Divine" category if both "Epic" and "Divine" categories exist? Is there something about an Epic Divine feat that doesn't qualify it for one (if not both) of the other categories? Also, is it worth while to add Wild, Vile, Monstrous, and Metabreath feat sections?--Sledged 13:59, 29 June 2006 (MDT)
Hey Ra-Tiel, thank you so much! I am glad that you got the feats done, and yes you did do them correctly. Thank you! --Blue Dragon 15:32, 6 March 2006 (MST)

Some feats in the wrong place.[edit]

I came across this as I looked at recent additions, I like playing fighters and so looked at the personal fighting style feat. This is a fighter feat (ie it can be taken as a fighter bonus feat, the only deffinition I can work out for "fighter feat") but is listed as a general feat. Is this correct or am I wrong. Are there other missplaced feats? This needs looking at.

How fighter feats work[edit]

Most feats are GENERAL feats. There is no restriction on them. Some feats can be taken by fighters as one of their fighter bonus feats. These are GENRERAL feats, but usually list the caveat, "A fighter may select FEAT as one of his fighter bonus feats." Very few feats are fighter only. These list "fighter level X" under prerequisites.

Now, how do we actually list them? Most folks list their "fighter only" feats under Fighter Only in order to make them easy to find. I side with that. Also, being a wiki, a feat is easily listed in multiple sections.

I've been meaning to give the section a once-over. Now that I've gotten the SRD shoved in, I may make it a priority.--Dmilewski 12:55, 23 April 2006 (MST)

So does a feat that can only be taken by fighters implicitly mean a fighter may select it as for one of its bonus feats?--Sledged 13:52, 29 June 2006 (MDT)
I think so, but the 'This can be taken by a fighter as a fighter bonus feat' thing should be added to the actual feat. --Green Dragon 06:54, 3 July 2006 (MDT)
I've organized the General feats, and among them are 14 feats so far that fighters may select with their bonus feats, but they're not fighter only feats. Should anything be done to single out these feats and identify them as fighter bonus feats? --Sledged 20:39, 12 July 2006 (MDT)

Feat Category Pages[edit]

Does anyone think it would be worth it to put the feats in a name/prereqs/benefit table like they do in the sourcebooks? --Sledged 14:25, 29 June 2006 (MDT)

Yes, I was planning on getting around to that when I get back from my trip, but if someone else would like to do that I would more than happy. I want the feats organized in a table with the prereqs and the benifit, just like the DnD Books. Could someone do this, or should I wait until I get back to do this? --Green Dragon 06:52, 3 July 2006 (MDT)
I guess I'll take a crack at it. I'll start with the Racial Feats as a demo.--Sledged 14:00, 4 July 2006 (MDT)
Done: DnD Racial Feats. Comments or recommendations anyone?--Sledged 21:21, 4 July 2006 (MDT)
Wow, looks good. I would say do that to all of them. Thanks so much. --Green Dragon 13:33, 11 July 2006 (MDT)
Can't take all the credit. Oneiros helped a good deal with streamlining the code. --Sledged 09:53, 12 July 2006 (MDT)
Should the SRD Feats go in this format, too? --Sledged 16:33, 14 July 2006 (MDT)
All finished formatting the feat tables. --Sledged 17:20, 15 July 2006 (MDT)

The Netbook of Feats[edit]

So, I was on Pz.Az.04Maus's user-page and I found a link to the The Netbook of Feats (linked from here). I was wondering if we could and if it would be a good idea to add these feats to D&D Wiki. It would not require much work to add them, as I would not mind doing that, but does the OGL allow us to add the feats to D&D Wiki? Also, would it be sufficient if we made a reference to the author, and a link to the The Netbook of Feats on each of of the feats, or would we need to do more to show that these feats are not ours, and that they are from the The Netbook of Feats Please help if you know anything about this subject. --Green Dragon 23:41, 16 August 2006 (MDT)

I read over the intro. It's OGL. They clearly spelled out that this is all free to use. Go to town. We have a template for OGL. All we need to do is follow the guidelines spelled out in the Netbook. --Dmilewski 09:18, 17 August 2006 (MDT)
To mark the feats as ones from the NBoF, I'd suggest using a template in the same way the author template is used. The template would be nice for any future OGC from outside sources as well. I personally have been wanting to create/looking for a document containing the OGC in Green Ronin's Psychic's Handbook. Alternatively, there could be a category specifically for NBoF feats. —Sledged 10:03, 17 August 2006 (MDT)
So, I will begin working on the NBoF, I just wanted to make sure that the OGL would not have some strange restrictions. So, I will clearly state who the author is, and give a link to the NBoF homepage each feat. I hope this works well, and am I forgetting something? --Green Dragon 13:42, 17 August 2006 (MDT)

Got rid of the boldness of 3.5e Aerial Feats[edit]

I got rid of the boldness of 3.5e Aerial Feats because they are not normal feats, and boldness should be determined by how often a typical character is to select the feat. I think that 3.5e Aerial Feats does not need to be bold, your ideas? --Green Dragon 15:22, 31 October 2006 (MST)

Hierarchical tree[edit]

I'd be interested in having a hierarchical tree of feats with their prerequisites, similar to this, but including SRD, NBoF, and homebrew feats. Only the names would be included, not prereqs or benefits. Each feat would only be listed under its most "interesting" prereq feat if it has more than one.

  1. Does this sound like a good idea?
  2. Do you agree that each feat should only be listed once?
  3. Would there be any copyright issues?
  4. Can anyone think of clever technical tricks to make the job easier?


--Cúthalion 12:54, 6 February 2007 (MST)

I like the idea, however a lot of work would be needed for it to happen. Right now the Categories on all the feats are not in-line with the SRD's categories, they would need to be. Also, I am not sure how to make them dnamically indent, however I am sure Sledged knows of a way to make it work. So, the fist step is changing all the categories of the feats to match how the SRD's categories work. You can do all the non-NBoF (non-locked feats) and I will change all the NBoF feats' categories. After that we can see how much work is needed. Would you like to help? --Green Dragon 11:49, 7 February 2007 (MST)
Okay, this goes on my "when I get around to it" todo list. I won't object if someone else beats me to it. --Cúthalion 12:13, 7 February 2007 (MST)
I'll work on it when I have more time. Recently (yesterday and early this morning) I was in the hospital for "Penitonsillar Cellulitus" and I have not been feeling good because of this. So, for one, that explains why I did not go on D&D Wiki last night, and two I don't really want to Wiki that hard for a bit of time, I just want to take it easy and get my sleep in. I will start working on this when I begin to feel better, sorry. --Green Dragon 12:38, 7 February 2007 (MST)
Hey, no apology necessary. I'd say you're earning every cent we pay you. And even if you weren't, most employers accept hospitalization as an excuse.
It sounds nasty. [Here's a description for the morbidly curious.] I hope you feel better soon. --Cúthalion 13:00, 7 February 2007 (MST)
Thanks! I hope I do as well. :). I will work on the feats when I feel better, as I said above. --Green Dragon 13:13, 7 February 2007 (MST)

Page Names[edit]

I don't think page names of feats should have the feat's types listed in the title. "Some Feat (DnD Epic Divine Metamagic Exalted Racial Feat)" should be listed simply as "Some Feat (DnD Feat)." —Sledged (talk) 12:53, 29 May 2007 (MDT)

I Agree. They are all being changed as we speak (thanks Dmilewski). --Green Dragon 22:51, 31 May 2007 (MDT)
I so agree. Those categories in the feat names make linking a pain in the a** --Mkill 10:43, 18 June 2007 (MDT)
