Talk:Multitasker (3.5e Feat)
From D&D Wiki
Very cool! Nice idea. Maybe someone could extend this to other skills like athletic skills like climb, swim, jump, and tumble. Obviosly, you wouldn't really get any use from using them both at the same time, but you could combine the skill ranks. —The preceding unsigned comment was added by Monk Boy 23 (talk • contribs) .

- Thanks. This was sprung up from our homebrew house rules. 15:19, 23 December 2008 (MST)
What do you do about bonuses you get for one skill, but not the other? Say Racial bonuses for spot but not listen, or size bonuses for Hide and not Move Silently. I would assume we just remember to add the +4 to Hide and not Move Silently, right? --Badger 19:21, 21 August 2009 (MDT)
- Yes. We've discussed this in game sessions before, and I should actually put a note in the feat about it. There are special situations where racial bonuses will apply (i.e. if the DM asks for a perception check and it ends up being just for a listen, you can add your bonus, but not if its just for a spot, etc.) It gets a little more busy to keep track of depending on your race, but that is what we do. Once I figure out clear and concise wording I'll add that to the feat. 19:32, 21 August 2009 (MDT)
- I just added a bit to try to convey what to do in that situation. If it doesn't seem clear enough to you, please feel free to reword or give advice or let me know what parts are obfuscating the point. 19:54, 21 August 2009 (MDT)
- I was thinking of saying you could average the misc bonuses. I mean, you could argue that a small character that gets +4 to hide would also make less noise, so you get a +2 misc bonus to the Stealth skill. Likewise, if you have a +2 bonus in both Spot and Listen, you retain that +2 bonus on Perception.If nothing else, it's one less note to remember.--Badger 14:52, 22 August 2009 (MDT)
- This is a plausible idea. Kind of like synergy bonuses. Hmmm. Will think on it. 15:10, 22 August 2009 (MDT)
Featured Article Nomination
Please feel free to re-nominate it once it meets the FA criteria and when all the major issues brought up in this nomination have been dealt with.
I'm adding this for multiple reasons. Originally, it was a homerule that became the norm when 4e came out (though we used it way before). However, since another user radically modified it - it is now much more universal and I personally feel like a very good custom feat. Plus, I don't believe we've ever had a feat be a FA. Yes, we'd have to find a image to try to highlight multitasking, but I don't think that is impossible.22:32, 30 August 2014 (MDT)
- I thought that the implicit nature of "Well Written" was more like common knowledge, but in any case because of that this page cannot come a featured article. If it is part of a larger group of pages then it could, but as it stands now it cannot. However, I do appreciate the attempt. --Green Dragon (talk) 11:43, 27 September 2014 (MDT)
