I stumbled across this while looking at your schismsoul class, and while I like that class I think this feat is a little unbalanced. Re-rolls on every enchantment effect (numerous) vs. one extra round (likely) against confusion effects, which aren't as varied. I think if you made it a penalty against confusion effects (say -2 or -4) and have all confusion effects last 1d4 rounds longer or so, it might be more appropriate, but I also think you should get a second opinion as well because I'm a little out of touch with everything. -- Jota 19:17, 13 May 2009 (MDT)

This feat essentially grants the Rogue's slippery mind class feature (if you didn't notice that). Whether that is balanced or not, I don't know. --Aarnott 02:53, 14 May 2009 (MDT)
I personally think this feat is balanced, since it gives the benifits of an ability that is supposed to be the equivelant of a free feat at the expense of a feat slot, not to mention that it's at a penalty. Actually, if its anything, this feat is underpowered. → Rith (talk) 03:22, 14 May 2009 (MDT)
That argument, of course, assumes a feat is equivalent to a class feature, which is generally not true (see: fighter). That being said, slippery mind really isn't great and is probably about right with this feat. The roleplaying implications of this feat also seem fun. --Aarnott 04:51, 14 May 2009 (MDT)
No, this assumes slippery mind (or any rogue special ability, including skill mastery) can be exchanged for a free feat. So, exchanging a feat for one of them at a penalty ought to be considered balanced. → Rith (talk) 05:52, 14 May 2009 (MDT)
