Introduction[edit]

Welcome!

Greetings, and thanks for taking the time to read the Netbook of Feats. This project is the result of a lot of hard work by all our contributors, reviewers, editors, the Fantasy Netbook Community Council, and ourselves. It represents thousands of hours of hard work and boundless creativity. We sincerely hope that you enjoy it and find something here that enhances your game or simply entertains.

The Netbook of Feats is published using the Open Gaming License (OGL). This legal document (found in the legal section of the NBOF) protects the work in this document so that it remains free for you to use in almost any way imaginable. Basically the material in the NBOF that is designated as Open Gaming Content (OGC), which is almost everything in the NBOF, can be used in any publication, amateur or professional without any restrictions, except that you must credit the original author of the work. To use our feats you need not pay us, or ask permission, or sign any contracts; the only thing you must do is include the OGL in any document you use the material in, and you must abide by the rules of the OGL.

Welcome to version 12 of the NBOF. We decided to change the version number to celebrate the inclusion of our first set of feats from another D20 publication. It was always our intent to do so but we have had so many original contributions we hadn't had the time to properly review them.

Our vision has always been to be the most comprehensive collection of quality feats anywhere. The sheer number of feats that have been published is staggering, yet the possibilities are nearly endless. Going forward you can expect to see more feats from other publication included in the NBOF. We will only include those we feel are of good quality and do not duplicate feats we already publish.

This version also contains a large number of new original feats. The review board has been going full steam and you will find many new and interesting additions. You will also note that we have changed the format and non-feat content based on your feedback.

We hope you enjoy the Netbook of Feats, and if you do, let us know. Your support and participation have always been what keeps us going strong.

Good Gaming,

Netbook of Feats Staff

Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. Each time the character takes the feat, it applies to a new type of wearable magic item.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

You have an innate ability to handle animals.

Balance: 4.15 (Purp 3.50, Pow 3.75, Port 4.50, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.50)

Animate Wall[edit]

Metamagic

You can make your wall spells move.

Benefit: You can animate your wall spell. The wall can move very slowly: 5 feet as a full round action; but must maintain its original shape and size. You direct the wall's movement as a free action on your turn. Walls must remain in contact with the ground if normally required to do so. This feat can only affect straight, vertical walls. If moving in a certain direction would force the wall to bend, break, or otherwise change its shape; it cannot move in that direction and you will know this. You can continue to direct the wall's movement for either the spell's normal duration or 1 minute/level (if the wall's duration is instantaneous or permanent). If the wall's normal duration is instantaneous, while under the effects of this feat it can be dispelled as if it had a duration other than instantaneous. Instantaneous Conjuration (Creation) school walls that are dispelled end the wall's ability to move but do not affect the wall otherwise. Solid walls (such as wall of stone, wall of iron, or wall of force) can automatically push Medium or smaller creatures out of their space. Such creatures caught between them and another solid structure, take damage equal to your caster level per round when the creature's actual space is squeezed against something solid. A successful Reflex save versus the wall's normal spell DC negates the damage for that round and allows the creature to move at half speed along the wall. Climbing over such a wall is a valid method of escape as is cutting through the wall with weapons (especially adamantine weapons). Animated Walls cannot push or crush creatures of larger than Medium size. Damaging walls (such as wall of thorns, blade barrier, or wall of fire) deal their normal damage per round when they push against a creature's square. Again, a Reflex save versus the wall's normal spell DC negates the damage for that round. These types of walls cannot push or crush creatures. Wall of ice deals the damage listed for solid walls unless the creature breaks through (Strength check DC 15 + wall's spell level); then it does the damage listed for the wall of ice spell. Wall of ice can push Medium or smaller creatures just as other solid walls can. Some walls can not deal damage in this way (such as wind wall and illusory wall) and either have their normal effects or are dissipated when pushed against the creature's square. An Animate Wall spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Normal: Your wall spells do not move.

Antipsionic Magic[edit]

General, Magical

Your spells are more potent when used against psionic characters and creatures.

Prerequisite: Spellcraft 5 ranks

Benefit: You get a get a +2 bonus on caster level checks made to overcome a psionic creature’s power resistance. This bonus stacks with the bonus conferred by Spell Penetration and Greater Spell Penetration. Moreover, whenever a psionic creature attempts to dispel a spell you cast, it makes its manifester level check against a DC of 13 + its manifester level. The benefits of this feat apply only to power resistance. The bonus does not apply to spell resistance. This is an exception to the psionics–magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team is not generally in favor of feats such as these that break the magic-psionics transparency rule.

Balance: 3.55 (Purp 3.50, Pow 3.75, Port 3.50, Comp 3.50, Rule 3.50)

Anything Goes Combat[edit]

General, Fighter

In your hands almost anything is a dangerous weapon

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Int 13

Benefit: You are the master of the improvised weapon. You may treat any object, including weapons you are not proficient with, as simple melee weapons using the stats listed in this feat instead of the stats usually used for that object or weapon, although you may still use weapons you have proficiency with as per normal. Determine the size of the object or weapon and use the stats listed here. All weapons threaten a critical hit on a 20 and do double damage. No weapon gives you reach. As stated in the SRD, a light weapon is generally two size categories smaller than the wielder, a one-handed weapon one size smaller, and a two-handed weapon is an object of the same size category as the wielder.

Size Damage
Tiny 1d2
Small 1d4
Medium 1d6
Large 1d8
Huge 1d10

If the DM determines that there is no way the object in question could do regular damage it instead deals nonlethal damage. Additionally any object used as a weapon via this feat can deal nonlethal damage at your discretion without penalty.

Normal: You suffer a -4 penalty on attack rolls with any weapon you are nonproficient with, and similarly with objects not designed to be used for combat.

Special: You may not take weapon feats with objects not designed to be weapons. For instance you cannot take Weapon Focus (Beer Mug).

Anything Goes Long[edit]

General, Fighter

You can throw nearly anything - ale tankards, rocks, bags of coins - and make it hurt.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Base attack bonus +4

Benefit: You are the master of the improvised missile. You may treat any object, including weapons you are not proficient with, as simple thrown weapons using the stats listed in this feat instead of the stats usually used for that object or weapon, although you may still use weapons you have proficiency with as per normal. Determine the size of the object or weapon and use the stats listed here. All weapons threaten a critical hit on a 20 and do double damage. No weapon gives you reach. As stated in the SRD, a light weapon is generally two size categories smaller than the wielder, a one-handed weapon one size smaller, and a two-handed weapon is an object of the same size category as the wielder.

Size Damage

Large 1d8
Huge 1d10


If the DM determines that there is no way the object in question could do regular damage it instead deals nonlethal damage. Additionally any object used as a weapon via this feat can deal nonlethal damage at your discretion without penalty.

Normal: You suffer a -4 penalty on attack rolls with any weapon you are nonproficient with, and similarly with objects not designed to be used for combat.

Notes: This does not give you the ability to use any object in melee combat; for that, see the Anything Goes Combat feat.

Apothecary[edit]

General

You have extensive knowledge of poisons and how to distill and manufacture them.

Benefit: You can create any poison following the craft rules using your Craft (alchemy) or Profession (herbalist) skills, with a DC equal to the save DC of the poison, except that each skill check represents one day's (rather than one week's) work. Many poisons require more expensive or rare components, as decided by your DM.

Special: You must have an Alchemist's lab in order to create a poison.

Notes: Depending on your campaign, poison creation may be treated as a house rule based on your Craft (alchemy) or Profession (herbalist) skill, rather than a feat. Alternatively, enterprising DMs could create a Craft (poison) skill that accomplishes the same effect.

Applied Scholastics[edit]

General, Role Play

Your scholarly knowledge is helpful in nearly every situation.

Prerequisite: A least 15 total ranks in 3 or more Knowledge skills

Benefit: You may use your Knowledge skills to take the Aid Another action in place of the actual skill being used. So long as you beat a DC 10 you add +2 to the roll of whomever you are aiding. You may also do this to aid your own actions by applying the aid bonus to a subsequent skill check you make. Using Aid Another remains a standard action.

Special: Because there is no hard and fast rule for which Knowledge skill can aid what actions, your DM should decide when it is appropriate although you can certainly present your case for how your smarts will make the task easier. You can never use a knowledge skill to aid your own knowledge skill checks.

Example: Janoc the scholar is about to climb a wall. His Climb skill is very poor, but he has a very good Knowledge (Architecture and Engineering) skill and wants to use this to find a good way to climb.

Arcane Admixture[edit]

Metamagic

You can modify a spell that inflicts energy damage to mix in an equal amount of arcane damage.

Prerequisite: Arcane Power, One other metamagic feat, Knowledge (arcana) 5 ranks

Benefit: You can modify an arcane spell with an energy designator to add an equal amount of raw magical energy. The altered spell works normally in all respects except that it deals an amount of arcane damage equal to the damage normally inflicted by the spell. An Arcane Admixture spell uses up a spell slot five levels higher than the spell’s actual level.

Example: Thieren (Sor 15), casts an arcane admixture lightning bolt by using up an 8th level spell slot, rolls 10d6 for damage and gets 35. He inflicts 35 points of electrical damage (subject to electricity resistance) and 35 points of arcane damage (not subject to protection from elements and similar spells).

Big Familiar[edit]

Magical

You can take a larger animal or vermin as a familiar.

Prerequisite: The ability to summon a familiar

Benefit: You can bind an animal or vermin of medium size or smaller to be your familiar. The familiar ceremony works just as described in the class description, except that the creature is not actually summoned, and must be present and in your power (charmed, tamed or captured) and of a challenge rating equal to or lower than half your character level. Once bound, the new familiar becomes loyal to you, and gains all the benefits of a normal familiar, except that it has no species-specific familiar ability; it does not grant you any bonuses beyond those common to all familiars.

Special: This feat can be taken multiple times, and stacks with itself. For each additional time it is taken, the maximum size of your familiar is increased by one category, from medium to large, to huge, and so on.

Example: Bainard the 1st level gnome illusionist wishes to use this feat to bind a dire badger as his familiar, figuring he can ride it into battle. However, since dire badgers have a challenge rating of two, he can't do this until he attains the fourth level. He decided not to bind any familiar at first level, since that would force him to wait a year and a day for his badger, once he attained fourth level.

Notes: You must dismiss any familiar you currently have before binding a new one, and you cannot bind a new familiar until a year and a day has passed since your last familiar was killed or dismissed.

Benefit: When dealing a critical hit your target takes 1 point of Constitution damage from blood loss. The critical hit does not multiply the Constitution damage.

Special: Creatures immune to critical hits (such as plants and constructs) are immune to this Constitution damage. This applies even if you have some other ability (such as the Enable Criticals feat) that lets you score critical hits against them.

Blind[edit]

General

Being blind, you have developed other senses to compensate.

Prerequisite: Permanently blind for at least three months

Benefit: You gain +4 to all Listen checks, and the ability to take 10 on any Listen check, regardless of condition. Listen is considered a class skill for you. You also gain the feat Blind-Fight.

Special: If you ever recover your sight, you lose this feat but keep Blind-Fight.

Blind-fight[edit]

General, Fighter

You can sense opponents that you cannot see.

Benefit: In melee, every time you miss because of concealment, you can reroll your miss chance percentile roll one time to see if you actually hit. An invisible attacker gets no advantages related to hitting you in melee. That is, you don’t lose your Dexterity bonus to Armor Class, and the attacker doesn’t get the usual +2 bonus for being invisible. The invisible attacker’s bonuses do still apply for ranged attacks, however. You take only half the usual penalty to speed for being unable to see. Darkness and poor visibility in general reduces your speed to three-quarters normal, instead of one-half.

Normal: Regular attack roll modifiers for invisible attackers trying to hit you apply, and you lose your Dexterity bonus to AC. The speed reduction for darkness and poor visibility also applies.

Special: The Blind-Fight feat is of no use against a character who is the subject of a blink spell. A fighter may select Blind-Fight as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Prerequisite: Blind-fight

Benefit: When making a ranged attack against a target within 30’ you may re-roll your miss chance due to concealment if you fail the first time.

Blinding Speed[edit]

Epic

You can act with near superhuman speed.

Prerequisite: Dex 25

Benefit: You can act as if hasted for 5 rounds each day. The duration of the effect need not be consecutive rounds. Activating this power is a free action.

Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. Each time he or she takes the feat, it grants an additional 5 rounds of haste per day.

Blinding Strike[edit]

General

Your mastery of underhanded dishonorable tactics allows you to temporarily blind your foe.

Prerequisite: Brawl, Streetfighting, Base attack bonus +2

Benefit: By taking a full attack action, you may make a single attack that blinds your foe. If you hit, your opponent must make a Fortitude save (DC 10 + half your level) or be blinded for 1d4 rounds. Only creatures that use sensory organs to see are vulnerable to this attack.

Blindsight, 5-ft. Radius[edit]

General

You can sense everything close to you, visible or not.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +4, Blind-fight, Wis 19

Benefit: Using senses such as acute hearing and sensitivity to vibrations, you detect the location of opponents who are no more than 5 feet away from you. Invisibility and darkness are irrelevant, though you cannot discern incorporeal beings.

Bloodletting[edit]

General, Fighter

Your strikes can cause someone to bleed to death.

Prerequisite: Weapon Focus

Benefit: When dealing a critical hit with any weapon you have taken Weapon Focus for, your opponent begins bleeding, suffering 1 additional point of damage each round until the wound is treated. The wound can be closed with a successful Heal check (DC 15), or any magical healing. This effect is cumulative but a single Heal check or magical heal will stop all current effects from this feat on that target.

Body Fuel[edit]

Psionic

You can expand your power point total at the expense of your health.

Benefit: You can recover 2 power points by taking 1 point of ability burn damage to each of your three ability scores: Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution. You can recover additional power points for a proportional cost to Strength, Dexterity, and Constitution. These recovered points are added to your power point reserve as if you had gained them by resting overnight.

Special: Only living creatures can use this feat. You can take advantage of this feat only while in your own body.

Bonded Weapon[edit]

General, Fighter

You have used a single weapon so much that you have formed an almost spiritual bond with that specific weapon.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +8, Improved Critical (with Weapon), Proficient With Weapon, Weapon Focus (with Weapon), Weapon Specialization (with Weapon)

Benefit: Choose a single unique weapon. For one month you train exclusively with that weapon, learning how to best wield that specific weapon most effectively. During the training period, you may use no other weapons or you must repeat the process. After the month of training, give the weapon a name to symbolize your intimate knowledge of the weapon. You gain an additional +2 to all attack rolls and +1 to damage with your named weapon (this stacks with the weapon focus and weapon specialization bonuses). You do not gain the bonuses or penalties of this feat when wielding a weapon of the same type, and suffer a -2 to all attack rolls with all other weapons.

Special: If ever your named weapon is destroyed or taken from your possession for more than a week, you must repeat the process of naming a weapon and continue to suffer the -2 to attack rolls with all weapons of a different type. You may never have more than one bonded weapon.

Bone Art[edit]

Metamagic

You can create weapons, armor and possibly siege equipment for your undead minions.

Prerequisite: Knowledge (Architecture and Engineering) 5 ranks, Ability to summon undead

Benefit: When you cast a Bone Art spell that summons or creates undead, you may give the created undead equipment. This equipment performs just like standard equipment of the appropriate type. The undead are proficient with whatever gear they are created with. The gear created this way is actually a part of the undead creature and has an obvious sheen of undeath; it will wither to dust in an hour if more than ten feet away from the creature it was created for. A Bone Art spell uses a spell slot of higher than normal level, depending on the equipment created for the undead; all modifiers are cumulative.

Item Spell Slot Modifier
Peasant’s outfit, simple gear such as quivers and weapon belts +0
Fancy or elaborate clothing or gear worth up to 100 gold +1
Simple or martial melee weapons and shields +1
Exotic weapons, ranged weapons +2
Padded, leather, studded leather, hide or scale mail +1
Chain shirt, chainmail, breastplate, splint mail, banded mail +2

Special: DMs may allow the creation of siege equipment with this feat. To do so, you must create a full crew complement for the siege engine, all modified by this feat, and it is a +3 spell slot modifier beyond that of any other gear created for those undead.

Notes: Immaterial undead have very little use for equipment. There is nothing to stop you from equipping undead using gear at hand; this feat merely provides proficiency and gear.

You have been granted new powers by your deity.

Prerequisite: Wis 21, Ability to cast 9th-level divine spells

Benefit: Choose an additional domain from your deity’s domain list. You now has access to that domain’s spells as normal for your domain spells and the domain’s granted powers.

Prerequisite: Caster level 4th

Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to the appropriate ability score for the purposes of determining how many bonus spells you have available to you in the chosen class.

Bow Mastery[edit]

General, Fighter

You are adept with either bows or crossbows.

Prerequisite: Weapon Focus (any Bow Or Crossbow), Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: You can choose to apply this feat to either bows or crossbows, but not both (unless this feat is taken twice). If you have previously taken Weapon Focus (any bow), you can apply the +1 attack bonus gained from this feat when wielding any bow that you are proficient in. Similarly, if you have previously chosen Weapon Focus (any crossbow), you can apply the +1 attack bonus gained from this feat when wielding any crossbow that you are proficient in.

Special: This feat can be chosen twice but does not stack with itself. The second time it is chosen you must apply its effects to either bows or crossbows, whichever wasn't chosen the first time this feat was taken.

You have a talent for unarmed fighting.

Benefit: When making an unarmed attack, you receive a +1 competence bonus on attack rolls, and you deal nonlethal damage equal to 1d6 + your Strength modifier.

Normal: Unarmed attacks normally deal nonlethal damage equal to 1d3 + Strength modifier.

Special: Even if you have the ability to treat unarmed damage as lethal damage, the damage when using Brawl is always nonlethal.

Breaking Blow[edit]

Martial Style

You are capable of inflicting powerful attacks with your bare hands.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +5, Str 15, Improved Unarmed Strike, Stunning Fist, Fists Of Steel

Benefit: As a full round action you may make a single unarmed melee attack that if it hits, deals damage equal to 1d6 for each point of strength modifier you have. If applied to an inanimate object, the damage is doubled. This uses one of your Stunning Fist attempts.

Special: The damage from a Breaking Blow is not modified by any statistic, ability, or feat, is applied instead of normal damage, and is not doubled by a critical hit.

Brew Potion[edit]

Item Creation

You can create magic potions.

Prerequisite: Caster level 3rd

Benefit: You can create a potion of any 3rd-level or lower spell that you know and that targets one or more creatures. Brewing a potion takes one day. When you create a potion, you set the caster level, which must be sufficient to cast the spell in question and no higher than your own level. The base price of a potion is its spell level x its caster level x 50 gp. To brew a potion, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one half this base price. When you create a potion, you make any choices that you would normally make when casting the spell. Whoever drinks the potion is the target of the spell. Any potion that stores a spell with a costly material component or an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must expend the material component or pay the XP when creating the potion.

Burrowing Power[edit]

Metapsionic

Your powers sometimes bypass barriers.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can attempt to manifest your powers against targets that are sheltered behind a wall or force effect. Your power briefly skips through the Astral Plane to bypass the barrier. The strength and thickness of the barrier determine your chance of success. To successfully bypass the barrier with your power, you make a Psicraft check against a DC equal to 10 + the hardness of the barrier + 1 per foot of thickness (minimum 1). Assign a hardness of 20 to barriers without a hardness rating, such as force effects (or a wall of ectoplasm). Force walls or walls of ectoplasm are assumed to have less than 1 foot of thickness unless noted otherwise. If a power requires line of sight (which includes most powers that affect a target or targets instead of an area), you cannot manifest it as a burrowing power unless you can somehow see the target, such as with clairvoyant sense. Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power’s total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Burst Fire[edit]

Modern

You unload multiple rounds into a single target.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Personal Firearms Proficiency, Advanced Firearms Proficiency

Benefit: When using an automatic firearm with at least five bullets loaded, you may fire a short burst as a single attack against a single target. You receive a –4 penalty on the attack roll, but deal +2 dice of damage. Firing a burst expends five bullets and can only be done if the weapon has five bullets in it.

Normal: Autofire uses ten bullets, targets a 10-foot-by-10-foot area, and can’t be aimed at a specific target. Without this feat, if you attempt an autofire attack at a specific target, it simply counts as a normal attack and all the extra bullets are wasted.

Special: If the firearm has a three-round burst setting, firing a burst expends three bullets instead of five and can be used if the weapon has only three bullets in it.

Butterfly Flank[edit]

General, Fighter

Your skill with a blade distracts and intimidates your opponent, catching them off balance and unaware.

Prerequisite: Dex 15, Combat Reflexes, Lightning Reflexes, Base attack bonus +6

Benefit: As long as you and an ally threaten the same opponent, but are not adjacent to one another, your opponent is considered flanked to you and all allies threatening them.

Normal: A character can only flank an opponent if he and an ally are directly opposite one another around the target.

Cadaverous Familiar[edit]

Magical

You can take an undead creature as a familiar.

Prerequisite: The ability to summon a familiar, Ability to cast the animate dead spell

Benefit: With this feat, the familiar ritual is performed on the animated skeleton or zombie of a type of animal that can normally become a familiar. The familiar ceremony works normally, except that the creature is not actually summoned, and must be present and under your control. A skeletal or zombie familiar is just as intelligent as any other familiar. You still get the bonuses associated with that type of (living) familiar. As an undead creature, the cadaverous familiar can be turned or rebuked, but remember that it's hit dice is equal to your level.

Special: If your regular familiar is slain, you can recover the lost experience points by reanimating it and using this feat. If a cadaverous familiar is destroyed, you can merely replace any damaged parts and reanimate the remains, without losing any experience points in the process. You must dismiss any familiar you currently have before binding a new one, but need not wait a year and a day to bind a cadaverous familiar.

Notes: If you have the Big Familiar feat as well, you can bind any type of skeleton or zombie of the appropriate size. Your DM may let you apply this feat to an infernal companion or similar pet.

Called Shot[edit]

General, Fighter

You do more damage with pinpoint attacks.

Prerequisite: Dex 13

Benefit: On your action, before making attack rolls for the round, you may choose to subtract a number from all attack rolls for the round and add the same number to all weapon damage rolls for dexterity-based attacks. This number may not exceed your base attack bonus. The penalty on attacks and bonus on damage apply until your next action.

Special: Creatures lacking an anatomy and thus immune to critical hits, are immune to this extra damage. Called shot can be used with ranged weapons at ranges up to 30 feet.

Notes: Dexterity-based attacks are attacks that use the dexterity modifier rather than the strength modifier for attack rolls; missile weapons, thrown weapons and weapons used with the Weapon Finesse feat. Called shot cannot be used with ranged touch attacks.

Camouflage[edit]

General

You have mastered the art of concealing objects and other creatures.

Prerequisite: Hide 1 rank

Benefit: You can apply your Hide skill to objects or even other creatures as a standard action. Often this requires arranging scenery to provide superior concealment. All normal Hide modifiers, including size, apply. A creature hidden in this manner cannot move about without breaking concealment.

Notes: Your DM may allow anyone to use the Hide skill for this, without requiring a feat.

You sleep well under any circumstances.

Prerequisite: Endurance

Benefit: You can sleep in any kind of armor for any amount of time without suffering fatigue penalties or discomfort. Other conditions that are uncomfortable but not dangerous, such as temperature, noise, sleeping on a hard surface, or with bed bugs, will likewise not prevent you from a good nights sleep. You get to make listen rolls normally while asleep. On any successful roll, you instantly wake up. You fall asleep easily, so you still get your rest even if you wake up several times.

Notes: This incorporates the Improved Rapid Metabolism, Improved Recovery and Light Sleeper feats from previous versions of the Netbook of Feats.

Cannibalistic Casting[edit]

Magical

You can use your body to fuel magic once your spells have run out.

Benefit: You can cast a spell by losing a number of Constitution points equal to the level of the spell rather than using a spell slot. These lost points of Constitution are considered temporary ability score damage for all purposes, except that they cannot be healed by magical means and must be regained by rest. If the ability damage is in some way prevented the spell will fail. 0-level spells count as one spell level for the purpose of this feat.

Special: Spellcasters that must prepare spells are limited to selecting spells previously prepared and cast that day.

Cantrip[edit]

Magical

Allows you to use 0-level arcane spells.

Prerequisite: Int 13, Knowledge (Arcana) 1 rank

Benefit: This feat grants you the ability to understand up to your intelligence modifier's worth of cantrips, i.e. 0-level arcane spells. You still locate and be trained in these spells. Regardless of the number of cantrips learned only one may be cast per day, and you must rest and memorize their cantrip as a wizard normally does, and suffers all appropriate penalties (e.g. spell failure chance due to armor).

Special: This feat may be taken multiple times; however, no additional cantrips can ever be learned (past the individual's intelligence modifier). Each additional time this feat is taken, the caster may prepare one additional cantrip per day for casting. The total maximum number of cantrips that can be cast in a single day (regardless of the number of times this feat is taken), is also limited to the caster's intelligence modifier.

You have mastered cantrips in a way that allows you to use them more freely.

Prerequisite: Caster level 3rd, Memorizes spells as a Wizard, Knowledge (Arcana) 5 ranks

Careful Planner[edit]

General

You always seem to have the right equipment on hand.

Prerequisite: Wis 13

Benefit: In any situation where a piece of mundane equipment is required and the item is unavailable, you can declare that you have the item on hand. You must immediately pay for the item, as if purchased from a shop. The item in question cannot be more than 25 gp in value. It is a fairly typical item of its sort you purchased last time you were in an appropriate market. The item found is not a specific item and could not for instance appear to be a counterfeit of another specific item. In the case of arrows, darts and the like, you may not ‘find’ more than 1d10 of these on you at any one time.

Special: You may use this feat a number of times per session equal to your Wisdom bonus. However, the DM may determine on extensive excursions that it can only be used a number of times equal to your Wisdom bonus per adventure. You can not find an item that you could not have conceivably been carrying with you because you lack sufficient storage space.

Notes: The idea of the feat is not that you magically create items, but that your character is a better shopper than their player and bought the item last time they re-supplied even the player had not thought to do so.

Cast-iron Stomach[edit]

General

You can consume the most unpleasant fare without so much as a second thought.

Prerequisite: Con 13

Benefit: You derive nourishment from spoiled food and can avoid dehydration by drinking seawater with few ill effects. By subsisting on these unusual provisions, you double the amount of time you can go without fresh food and water.

Normal: Without this feat you can go without food for three days, after which time you must make a Constitution check (DC 10, + 1 for each previous check) or take 1d6 points of nonlethal damage. Without this feat you can go without fresh water for one day plus a number of hours equal to your Constitution score, after which you must make Constitution checks as described above, with similar effects for failed checks.

Special: For this feat to take effect, you must have access to formerly edible foods and a supply of salt water. Otherwise, you are just as vulnerable to starvation and dehydration as any other character.

Chain Power[edit]

Metapsionic

You can manifest powers that arc to hit other targets in addition to the primary target.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can chain any power that affects a single target and that deals either acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic damage. After the primary target is struck, the power can arc to a number of secondary targets equal to your manifester level (maximum twenty). The secondary arcs each strike one target and deal half as much damage as the primary one did (round down). Each target gets to make a saving throw, if one is allowed by the power. You choose secondary targets as you like, but they must all be within 30 feet of the primary target, and no target can be struck more than once. You can choose to affect fewer secondary targets than the maximum (to avoid allies in the area, for example). Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 6. The power’s total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Chain Ray[edit]

Metamagic

You can chain your ray spells.

Benefit: This feat allows a spell cast with Effect: Ray that successfully hits a single target to possibly strike other targets. When a Chain Ray spell successfully strikes a target it creates a number of secondary rays that strike opponents within 30’ of the initial target. You may strike a number of secondary targets up to your caster level. Each secondary target requires an additional ranged attack. Secondary targets are only affected by one ray (regardless of how many the spell originally produces) and the ray only does half its normal damage. Rays that do not do damage but allow saving throws have their DC reduced by 4. A Chain Ray spell uses up a slot two levels higher than the actual level.

Channel Against Outsiders[edit]

Special

You can turn or rebuke one type of outsider.

Prerequisite: Turn or Rebuke Undead ability, Extra Turning

Benefit: Select one group of outsiders (such as fire elementals, demons or devils) that are either hostile to your faith/alignment (for turning) or associated with your faith/ alignment (for rebuking). You can channel divine energy against this type of outsider to turn or rebuke them as if they were undead of twice their Hit Dice. When turning outsiders, those whose modified Hit Dice are half your turning level or less are dismissed to their home plane rather than destroyed.

Special: On their home plane, you turn or rebuke these outsiders as undead of four times their Hit Dice, but there they really can be destroyed instead of merely dismissed. This feat can be taken several times. It does not stack. Each time, you may choose a new type of outsider to turn or rebuke.

Notes: A cleric that turns undead also turns outsiders, and a cleric that rebukes undead also rebukes outsiders. You must select appropriate groups of outsiders depending on whether you turn or rebuke. Your DM has the final say as to what constitutes a valid group of outsiders for this feat.

Channel Psionic Touch[edit]

Psionic

You can channel your psionic touch powers through a held melee weapon.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 1st

Benefit: You are able to manifest psionic touch powers through a held melee weapon, allowing you to make a standard armed attack and inflict normal weapon damage plus the effect of your psionic power on a successful strike. For a power with a manifestation time of 1 standard action, manifesting the power and making the attack require a full-round action (unless the power is manifested with Quicken Power, in which case it requires a standard action). When resolving your attack, compare your attack roll against your target’s normal AC and AC against touch attacks. If your attack roll fails to beat the target’s normal AC but beats his or her AC against touch attacks, the power is discharged normally but the weapon inflicts no additional damage. Once the power is manifest your melee weapon holds the charge of the power exactly as if the power had been manifest in the normal manner. You cannot pass a charged weapon to another character as doing so discharges your power. Likewise, the power dissipates (without discharging) if the weapon is ever thrown or leaves your hand.

Normal: You can manifest a psionic touch power as either a touch attack (no armor, shield or natural armor bonus to AC) or a normal unarmed strike.

Special: You cannot manifest personal psionic powers (like Claws of the Bear, Claws of the Vampire, etc.) with this feat. For purposes of this feat, the weapon used to manifest your psionic touch power is immune to the effects of your power while it holds the charge of the power.

Channel Touch Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can cast a touch spell through your melee weapon.

Benefit: You can cast any of your touch spells through a held melee weapon, allowing you to make a standard armed attack and inflict normal weapon damage plus the effect of your spell on a successful strike. Casting the spell is still a standard action (unless you have the Quicken Spell feat) and you must wait until your next attack action in order to make your armed attack. When resolving your attack, compare your attack roll against your target's normal AC and AC against touch attacks. If your attack roll fails to beat the target's normal AC but beats their AC against touch attacks, the spell is discharged normally but the weapon inflicts no additional damage. Once the spell is cast your melee weapon holds the charge of the spell exactly as if the spell had been cast in the normal manner. You cannot pass a charged weapon to another character, as doing so discharges your spell. Likewise, the spell dissipates (without discharging) if the weapon is ever thrown or leaves your hand. Casting a touch spell in this manner uses up a spell slot one level higher than the level of the spell cast.

Normal: You can discharge a touch spell as either a touch attack (no armor, shield or natural armor bonus to AC) or a normal unarmed strike.

Channeled Resistance[edit]

Monster, Psionic

The creature can protect other beings that it touches with its Spell Resistance (SR) or Power Resistance (PR).

Prerequisite: Innate Spell Resistance 10 or Innate Power Resistance 10

Benefit: As a standard action, the creature can share its SR or PR with any single creature touched. This protection lasts only so long as the creature with SR or PR concentrates on providing the protection and only as long as the beneficiary remains in contact with the creature with resistance. If the creature with resistance is distracted or suffers damage in any way while maintaining this shared protection it must make a Concentration check as if casting a 0-level spell. Failing this check instantly negates the shared SR or PR until the creature with resistance spends another action to share it again.

Normal: Creatures and magic items cannot bestow SR or PR on another.

The turbulence of your thoughts prevents others from gaining insight into your actions.

Prerequisite: Chaotic alignment, Cha 15

Benefit: Creatures and characters who have an insight bonus on their attack rolls, an insight bonus to their Armor Class, or an insight bonus on skill checks or ability checks do not gain those bonuses against you. The benefit of this feat applies only to insight bonuses gained from psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics–magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Prerequisite: Power Attack, Str 13

Benefit: If you deal a creature enough damage to make it drop (typically by dropping it to below 0 hit points or killing it), you get an immediate, extra melee attack against another creature within reach. You cannot take a 5-foot step before making this extra attack. The extra attack is with the same weapon and at the same bonus as the attack that dropped the previous creature.

Cleaving Rampage[edit]

General, Fighter

You charge forward cutting through all in your path.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Dex 13, Power Attack, Cleave, Dodge, Great Cleave, Mobility, Spring Attack, Base attack bonus +8

Benefit: As a full round action you may trace a path up to twice your speed in a straight line. This path must be generally clear; the only obstructions allowed are friendly or enemy combatants. You must attack the first opponent along your path, and must move at least 10 ft. before your first attack. If you drop an opponent you may can take a cleave attack on the next available target. If no targets are in reach you may continue moving along the path. You must stop moving when you make an attack but fail to drop the opponent. Any opponent dropped will not hinder your movement even if they originally blocked your path. You are considered to be charging and get the usual +2 bonus to hit on all attacks for the round, and -2 to your AC until your next action. You still provoke attacks of opportunity as usual.

Special: This feat does not allow this maneuver to be used while mounted.

Cleaving Shot[edit]

General, Fighter

Your missile attacks can pierce through one target and into the next.

Prerequisite: Weapon Focus, Point Blank Shot, Base attack bonus +8

Benefit: If you hit an opponent within 30’ with a ranged attack and deal enough damage to drop the target, you missile rips through your target and potentially strikes a second foe. You may immediately make another attack at the same base attack bonus against an enemy within 30’ of you and who is in a direct line with you and your original target.

Notes: As a DM you may want to restrict this feat to ranged weapons you feel could realistically “rip through” a target, however one could imagine that a thrown axe might whiz by cutting someone’s throat instead of blasting through their chest.

Clinch[edit]

General, Fighter

You have mastered the art of fighting at very close quarters.

Prerequisite: Dodge, Mobility, Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: Go into "clinch" with an adjacent opponent as a move-equivalent action. After doing this, you get a +4 cover bonus to AC against all opponents, and a +4 circumstance bonus to attack rolls against that opponent. If you and your opponent move further than 5 feet apart, you lose this bonus. You also lose the bonus if you move into a clinch with or attack someone else. To use this feat your weapon must be of a size class two categories smaller than your opponent's. A natural weapon or unarmed attack has a size code two sizes smaller than the creature using it.

Example: A medium creature with a light weapon (e.g. a tiny object such as a dagger) can use this feat against another medium creature using a two-handed weapon (e.g. a medium object such as a greatsword), but not if they were using a one-handed weapon (e.g. a small object such as a longsword). Similarly a human with a dagger could use this feat against an ogre using an ogre-sized longsword.

Notes: Roman shortswordsmen used this against longspears under king Pyrrhus. It was just successful enough to coin the term 'pyrrhic victory'.

Stealth

You have trained extensively in attacking openings in your opponent’s defenses with a particular weapon. Choose one weapon such as short sword. With that weapon, your attacks of opportunity can be devastating.

Prerequisite: Combat Reflexes, Weapon Focus (with Weapon), Sneak Attack 1d6

Benefit: When you make an attack of opportunity, you may add sneak attack damage. This ability can only be used once per round, and following this attack, you may not make any further Attacks of Opportunity until after your next action. This may negate the benefits of Combat Reflexes for the current round.

Normal: Only the loss of Dex bonus to Armor Class or flanked status allow a character to add sneak attack damage.

Metamagic

You can extend the duration of your spells through concentration.

Benefit: You can maintain a spell which has a duration longer than one round through concentration.

After you stop maintaining the spell, its normal duration resumes and then terminates as usual. You cannot use this feat to maintain a spell past ten times its normal duration nor can you resume concentration. A Concentration Spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's normal level.

Normal: Gain a +2 on your attack roll when flanking

Special: You must be able to effectively communicate with the other flanking members.

Notes: This feat is designed to let a leader coordinate a better attack front against an opponent. By confusing the opponent and having the group work together under the direction of the leader, the flanking bonus increases.

You have greater control over burst and spread spells.

Benefit: When casting burst- and spread-based area-of-effect spells, you can reduce the affected area in increments of 5 ft. You have total control over the radius, but not the direction. A controlled burst spell takes up a spell slot one level higher than normal.

Example: Using this feat, you can cast a small fireball into a square next to you without having it impact you or your comrades.

Counter Charge[edit]

General, Fighter

You may step forward and meet a charging opponent, using his momentum to make your own attack more effective.

Prerequisite: Combat Reflexes

Benefit: You may declare a Counter Charge as a readied action against any opponent who charges you. The action is triggered the moment your opponent comes within 5’ of your reach. You take a 5’ step forward and make a single attack at your full base attack bonus. Your opponent suffers the -2 AC penalty for charging. On a successful attack you deal double damage. Stack this bonus damage with the weapon’s critical multiplier on a critical hit. While this shortens the distance your opponent has to charge, it does not alter the bonuses and penalties of the charge if the opponent moves less than 10’ because of your action.

Normal: Normally, you may only deal double damage against a charging opponent with weapons that may be set against charging foes.

Special: If for any reason you may not take the 5-foot step, you may not use this feat.

Craft Anywhere[edit]

Item Creation

You can craft magic/psionic items in your spare time.

Prerequisite: Any Item Creation Feat

Benefit: You can craft magic/psionic items in your spare time, anywhere, even while adventuring or doing other activities during the day. The item creation process still takes the same amount of time, has the same costs, and requires the same equipment as normal, but the creation process is not disturbed if you do other strenuous activity (fighting, spellcasting, research, etc.). You must devote your full attention to the crafting process in order of it to count towards your total, and you suffer a -10 penalty to your spot and listen checks while doing it. Simply add up all the hours you spent crafting until you get the total working hours required to craft the item (Market Value / 1000gp * 8 Hours). You still may not work more than 8 hours in a given day.

Craft Cognizance Crystal[edit]

Item Creation, Psionic

You can create psionic cognizance crystals that store power points.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 3rd

Benefit: You can create a cognizance crystal. Doing so takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a cognizance crystal is equal to the highest-level power it could manifest using all its stored power points, squared, multiplied by 1,000 gp. To create a cognizance crystal, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half its base price.

Item Creation

You can create magical constructs.

Prerequisite: Craft Magic Arms And Armor, Craft Wondrous Item

Benefit: A creature with this feat can create any construct whose prerequisites it meets. Enchanting a construct takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its market price. To enchant a construct, a spellcaster must spend 1/25 the item’s price in XP and use up raw materials costing half of this price (see individual construct monster entries for details). A creature with this feat can repair constructs that have taken damage. In one day of work, the creature can repair up to 20 points of damage by expending 50 gp per point of damage repaired. A newly created construct has average hit points for its Hit Dice.

Crafting a dorje takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a dorje is its manifester level x the power level x 750 gp. To craft a dorje, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price. A newly created dorje has 50 charges. Any dorje that stores a power with an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the XP cost derived from the base price, you must pay fifty times the XP cost.

Craft Magic Arms And Armor[edit]

Item Creation

You can magical weapons and armaments.

Prerequisite: Caster level 5th

Benefit: You can create any magic weapon, armor, or shield whose prerequisites you meet. Enhancing a weapon, suit of armor, or shield takes one day for each 1,000 gp in the price of its magical features. To enhance a weapon, suit of armor, or shield, you must spend 1/25 of its features’ total price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this total price. The weapon, armor, or shield to be enhanced must be a masterwork item that you provide. Its cost is not included in the above cost. You can also mend a broken magic weapon, suit of armor, or shield if it is one that you could make. Doing so costs half the XP, half the raw materials, and half the time it would take to craft that item in the first place.

Craft Magic Tattoo[edit]

Item Creation

You can create magical tattoos that duplicate the effects of a single spell.

Prerequisite: Caster level 9th, Craft (Artist) 5 ranks

Benefit: You can apply your magic and artistry together to create a magic tattoo. The tattoo is created to emulate the effects of a single spell as if it were a spell-like ability. The base price for a tattoo of this nature is spell level * caster level * 400 gp. Crafting a magic tattoo takes one day for each 1,000gp of its base price. To craft a magic tattoo, you and the recipient must each spend 1/25th of its base price in XP. The creator must also use up raw materials costing half of the base price.

Special: The power of the tattoo can only be used once each day. The caster level is based on the lowest caster level needed to cast the spell. If two or more magic tattoos are attempted on the same body (regardless of size), the magics will disrupt each other (i.e. you may never have more than one magic tattoo). A magic tattoo can be removed using a remove curse cast at one level higher than the spell level of the spell effect granted by the tattoo (using heighten spell or a similar method). The act of casting remove curse only takes away the magic. The tattoo itself remains until removed through mundane methods. The tattoo is treated as a Miscellaneous Magic Item for all other intents and purposes.

Create Opportunity[edit]

Benefit: In lieu of ALL your attacks of opportunity for one round, you may make a single attack of opportunity against a target who moves more than 5' and moves through your threatened area in a manner that does not normally provoke an attack of opportunity.

Notes: If you have made even a single attack of opportunity since your last action, you may not use this feat, since you can no longer give up ALL attacks of opportunity. If the target has the feat Mobility, the mobility bonus to AC still applies.

Create Wondrous Creature[edit]

Item Creation

You know how to create Aberrations, Beasts, Magical Beasts, Monstrous Humanoids, and Plant creatures.

Prerequisite: Spellcaster or Manifester level 5th, Knowledge (Arcana or Psionics) 5 ranks, Knowledge (Nature) 5 ranks

Benefit: You can create any Aberration, Magical Beast, Monstrous Humanoid, or Plant creature whose prerequisites you meet. The creature created is not necessarily under your control. To create a creature you need access to a lab, similar to an alchemist's lab, of at least 500 gp value. The creation of a creature involves taking a similar creature or creature(s) and subjecting them to various spells and grafting techniques. There is a chance that the experiment will be a failure. To create a creature you must succeed both a Knowledge (Arcana or Psionics) and a Knowledge (Nature) check (DC 20 + CR of attempted creature). You may not 'take 10' or 'take 20' on these rolls. However, you get a +1 circumstance bonus for every attempt at a specific creature that you have previously made, whether successful or not. If both Knowledge skill checks are failed the creature dies a horrible death. If one Knowledge skill check fails and the other succeeds the resulting creation is horribly deformed in some way and is hostile towards you. The base price of a creature is the challenge rating squared times 1000gp (CR x CR x 1000gp). Creating a creature takes 1 day for every 1,000 gp in its base price. To create a creature, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing half of its base price. The minimum caster level for creating a creature is 2 x CR of the intended creature. The appropriate spells must be used in order to add extraordinary (Ex), spell-like (Sp), and/or supernatural (Su) abilities.

Special: If a Charm Monster spell is cast every day of the creation process, a successfully created creature will be in permanent servitude to you. If a Limited Wish is used in the creation process a successfully created creature will be in permanent servitude to you and will even follow a life goal, determined by you, after you have died. If a Wish is used in the creation process a successfully created creature and its descendants will follow a life goal, determined by you, even after you have died.

Notes: Characters should be encouraged to create their own unique magical beasts and not just create another Owlbear, Tendriculos, Mimic, or Skum. If the creature is a new creature the DM should determine the CR. As failures in the use of the feat can result in tremendous amounts of pain and death for the creature created your DM may restrict the use of this feat to evil, or at least non-good, characters. In games that use the Epic rules this feat may not be available, as to a certain extent it duplicates the effects of Epic Spells based on the Life seed.

This penalty lasts until the creature receives a DC 15 Heal check, receives magical healing, regeneration, or is healed by rest.

General, Fighter

Allows you to use your intelligence modifier instead of your dexterity modifier for armor class adjustments.

Prerequisite: 2 ranks of Sense Motive, Alertness

Benefit: Grants you the ability to substitute your intelligence modifier for your dexterity modifier when calculating armor class against a single opponent.

Deflect Arrows[edit]

General, Fighter

You can knock arrows out of the air with your bare hands.

Prerequisite: Improved Unarmed Strike, Dex 13

Benefit: You must have at least one hand free (holding nothing) to use this feat. Once per round when you would normally be hit with a ranged weapon, you may deflect it so that you take no damage from it. You must be aware of the attack and not flatfooted. Attempting to deflect a ranged weapon doesn’t count as an action. Unusually massive ranged weapons and ranged attacks generated by spell effects can’t be deflected.

Special: A monk may select Deflect Arrows as a bonus feat at 2nd level, even if she does not meet the prerequisites. A fighter may select Deflect Arrows as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Balance: 4.00 (Purp 4.00, Pow 4.00, Port 4.00, Comp 3.75, Rule 4.25)

Deflect Attack[edit]

General, Fighter

You can be more aggressive when Fighting Defensively.

Prerequisite: Int 13, Str 13, Combat Expertise, Improved Sunder, Power Attack

Benefit: When you are Fighting Defensively, your opponent provokes an Attack of Opportunity just before attacking you. Since you are Fighting Defensively, your Attack of Opportunity has a -4 penalty to attack. If the opponent attacks you with a weapon, your Attack of Opportunity can only be used as a Sunder attack against the weapon that is used to attack you. If the opponent attacks you with an unarmed attack or a natural weapon, you attack the unarmed strike or natural weapon, effectively making an Attack of Opportunity against your opponent. If your attack actually damages the opponent's weapon (or the opponent, in the case of an unarmed strike or natural weapon), subtract the damage dealt to the weapon or opponent from the damage you would sustain from their attack. In this way, it is possible to negate the damage from an opponent's attack.

Special: You cannot use this feat if attacking with a piercing weapon or unarmed if your opponent is using a weapon to attack you, unless through an ability or feat you can make Sunder attacks with a piercing weapon or unarmed (as Sunder attacks generally require you to be using a slashing or bludgeoning weapon).

Deft Lunge[edit]

General, Fighter

You are trained to take advantage of openings in an opponent's defenses

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Combat Expertise

Benefit: When you use the attack action or full attack action in non-mounted melee combat, you may take as much as a -5 penalty to Armor Class to add the same number (up to +5) to a single attack roll in the same round. This number may not exceed your base attack bonus. Unless you also have the Mobility feat, this attack draws an Attack of Opportunity from the defender. The changes to Armor Class last until your next action.

Delay Power[edit]

Metapsionic

You can manifest powers that go off up to 5 rounds later.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can manifest a power as a delayed power. A delayed power doesn’t activate immediately. When you manifest the power, you choose one of three trigger mechanisms: (1) The power activates when you take a standard action to activate it; (2) It activates when a creature enters the area that the power will affect (only powers that affect areas can use this trigger condition); or (3) It activates on your turn after 5 rounds pass. If you choose one of the first two triggers and the conditions are not met within 5 rounds, the power activates automatically on the fifth round. Only area and personal powers can be delayed. Any decisions you would make about the delayed power, including attack rolls, designating targets, or determining or shaping an area, are decided when the power is manifested. Any effects resolved by those affected by the power, including saving throws, are decided when the delay period ends. A delayed power can be dispelled normally during the delay, and can be detected normally in the area or on the target by the use of powers that can detect psionic effects. Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power’s total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Balance: 3.90 (Purp 3.75, Pow 4.00, Port 4.00, Comp 3.50, Rule 4.25)

Delay Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You may delaty the effect of a spell you cast.

Benefit: A delayed spell doesn’t activate immediately when cast. Instead, when you cast the spell, you may specify a number of rounds between one and five to delay the effect of the spell. When that number of rounds has passed the spell takes effect. The caster may cause the spell to take effect earlier than they initially selected by taking a standard action that provokes an attack of opportunity. Only area, personal, and touch spells can be delayed. Any decisions you would make about the delayed spell, including attack rolls, designating targets, or determining or shaping an area, are decided when the spell is cast. Any effects resolved by those affected by the spell, including saving throws, are decided when the delay period ends. A delayed spell can be dispelled normally during the delay, and can be detected normally in the area or on the target by the use of spells that can detect spell effects. A delayed spell takes up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell’s actual level.

Notes: The spell is cast normally and a Spellcraft roll can determine what was cast, how and when it will go off. As noted the delayed spell can be detected and dispelled while it is waiting to take effect, however it is not readily visible or detectable by normal senses. It is not technically invisible; it simply exists as a magic aura of the same shape of the spell effect until it takes effect. The delayed spell can be noticed with a DC40 Spot check, although this will only give the spotter an awareness of where the magic effect will be, not what it will do or look like when it goes off. Detect Magic will show the user what they would normally discover when observing the spell in effect with Detect Magic.

Destructive Force[edit]

Metamagic

You can increase the damage limitations of certain spells.

Benefit: You can raise the damage cap of capped spells by two dice for each increase in the spell's level by one.

Example: The fireball spell has a damage cap of 10d6 (at 10th level). Using this feat, a 15th level caster could instead do 12d6 points of damage using a fourth level spell slot, 14d6 damage using a fifth level spell slot, or 15d6 (with a damage cap of 16d6) using a sixth level spell slot.

Notes: This feat can be used with any spell having a damage cap expressed in the spell's description. A damage cap can be identified by a statement similar to deals #d# points of <energy type> damage per caster level (maximum #d#). It would have no effect on a spell like magic missile as in this case the cap is on the number of missiles produced, rather than the damage of each missile.

You are skilled at dodging attacks.

Benefit: For the purpose of determining Armor Class, treat your Dexterity score as 2 points higher than its actual value. This feat can be taken several times, and stacks with itself.

Special: This feat grants virtual access to the Dodge feat, allowing you to take other feats for which Dodge is a prerequisite.

Dexterous Fortitude[edit]

Epic, Stealth

Diehard[edit]

General

You can keep going until your final breath.

Prerequisite: Endurance

Benefit: When reduced to between –1 and –9 hit points, you automatically become stable. You don’t have to roll d% to see if you lose 1 hit point each round. When reduced to negative hit points, you may choose to act as if you were disabled, rather than dying. You must make this decision as soon as you are reduced to negative hit points (even if it isn’t your turn). If you do not choose to act as if you were disabled, you immediately fall unconscious. When using this feat, you can take either a single move or standard action each turn, but not both, and you cannot take a full round action. You can take a move action without further injuring yourself, but if you perform any standard action (or any other action deemed as strenuous, including some free actions, such as casting a quickened spell) you take 1 point of damage after completing the act. If you reach –10 hit points, you immediately die.

Normal: A character without this feat who is reduced to between –1 and –9 hit points is unconscious and dying.

Disarm And Deny[edit]

General, Fighter

You can steal a weapon from your opponent.

Prerequisite: Int 13, Combat Expertise, Improved Disarm

Benefit: When you succeed at an armed disarm attempt and have a free hand, you can catch your opponent’s weapon after they drop it as a free action. If you do not wish to catch the weapon, or if you do not have a free hand, you may knock the weapon up to 20’ instead of your opponent’s square. You may choose the square the weapon lands in, but there must be an unobstructed straight path to that square and the square must not be occupied.

Normal: You can snatch an opponent’s weapon using disarm but only if you performed the disarm attempt unarmed. A successful armed disarm drops the opponent’s weapon in their current space.

Disguise Spell[edit]

Metamagic, Song

You can disguise your spells in a performance.

Prerequisite: Bardic music class feature, Perform 12 ranks

Benefit: You have mastered the art of casting spells unobtrusively, mingling verbal and somatic components into its music and performances so that others rarely catch you in the act of casting a spell. Like a silent, stilled spell, a disguised spell can’t be identified through Spellcraft. Your performance is obvious to everyone in the vicinity, but the fact that you are casting a spell isn’t. Unless the spell visibly emanates from you or observers have some other means of determining its source, they don’t know where the effect came from. A disguised spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell’s actual level.

Distance Ki Strike[edit]

Martial Style

You are able to focus your ki in order to strike an opponent at a distance.

Prerequisite: Ki Strike (lawful) class ability, Stunning Fist

Benefit: As a full round action that counts as one of your stunning fist uses per day, you can make a ranged touch attack at your highest unarmed attack bonus against any opponent within 30 ft. A successful attack roll inflicts force damage equal to your base unarmed strike damage, modified by your Wis bonus. Your strength bonus does not add to your attack or damage roll. This can be combined with all other special monk unarmed attacks normally except quivering palm. Distance Ki Strike is a supernatural ability and a failed ranged touch attack counts against the total number of times that you can use this ability per day.

Divine Awe[edit]

Divine

You can channel energy to shake the resolve of those attacking you.

Prerequisite: Ability to turn or rebuke undead, Cha 13, Extra Turning

Benefit: By spending one of your turn or rebuke undead attempts and taking a standard action, you surround yourself with an aura of awe. This effect lasts for 1 round plus one round per charisma bonus. Anyone attacking you in melee combat must make a will save DC (10 + half your turning level) or be shaken for one round. This is considered a fear effect.

Example: Thomas the 6th level Cleric activates Divine Awe. His charisma is 16 so for the next 4 rounds he is cloaked in an aura of awe. Later that round he is attacked by a troll with a club. The troll must make a Will save DC 13. It fails and is shaken (-2 attack, saves, skills and ability checks) until its next action. The troll continues to make its attack but it suffers a -2 on its attack roll due to the shaken status effect.

Prerequisite: Ability to turn or rebuke undead, Cha 13, Extra Turning, Divine Might

Divine Dispel[edit]

Divine

You can negate magic through turning.

Prerequisite: Turn or Rebuke Undead ability, Extra Turning

Benefit: You can dispel or counter a magic spell by making a turning check as if turning an undead creature of the opposing spellcaster's level. You can only dispel spells with the 'evil' descriptor (if you turn undead) or the 'good' descriptor (if you rebuke undead). A spell that is dispelled as it is being cast has no effect whatsoever; otherwise, it ends as if its duration had run out. This power cannot affect spells immune to dispel magic. Each attempt to use Divine Dispel uses up one of your turn or rebuke attempts for the day, whether the attempt is successful or not.

Notes: If your religion is strongly opposed to law or chaos, your DM may allow you to channel energy against spells with the lawful or chaotic descriptor instead, and other types of Divine Dispel are certainly possible for certain religions.

Druidical Blessing[edit]

Each additional time this feat is taken, the caster may prepare one additional spell per day. The total maximum number of orisons that can be cast in a single day (regardless of the number of times this feat i! s taken), is also limited to the caster's wisdom modifier.

Dual Energy Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can interchange two types of energy for one another.

Benefit: When you learn this feat, select two spell energy designators from the list Acid, Cold, Electricity, Fire, or Sonic. With this feat, a spell of one of the two types you selected can have its type changed from one to the other. Any damage the spell causes of its usual energy type is now changed into the new element type. Effects other than elemental damage will not change. A Dual Element Spell uses up a spell slot of its normal level.

Example: Davoud is a wizard who learns this feat for fire and acid. He can opt to prepare his melf's acid arrow spell normally, or he can apply this feat to it, and change the designator from Acid to Fire. The spell damage will now ignore acid resistance and be subject to fire resistance. It will still cause (fire) damage over three rounds. Likewise, he can prepare a fireball as either a fire or an acid spell.

Notes: This feat includes the benefit of the Fire to Ice feat from previous editions of the Netbook of Feats. Although in the SRD the Energy Substitution feat can be used with spells to cause Sonic damage, newer publications have updated this feat to no longer allow this, presumably as very few creatures have resistance to Sonic damage compared to the other energy types. As such the DM may similarly restrict this feat, or alternatively may allow spells to produce sonic damage but with the damage reduced by one die-size. For example, using this feat on Fireball would allow you to do 1d4 Sonic damage per level (maximum 10d4) rather than 1d6 Fire damage per level (maximum 10d6).

Dual Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can cast two spells with one action.

Prerequisite: Any two metamagic feats

Benefit: You may cast two Dual Spells as a single action. Casting a dual spell takes as long as the longest casting time of the two spells (and at least a full round for a spontaneous caster). If either is dispelled or interrupted both spells are lost. Casters who memorize spells must designate the two spells to be cast together at the time they are memorized but each takes up a separate spell slot. Spontaneous casters may designate any two spells at the time of casting. Each spell in a Dual Spell takes up a slot two levels higher than it’s actual level.

Prerequisite: Point Blank Shot, Dodge, Dex 13

Efficient Item Creation[edit]

Epic, Item Creation

You can create magic items quickly.

Prerequisite: Item creation feat to be selected, Knowledge (arcana) 24 ranks, Spellcraft 24 ranks

Benefit: Select an item creation feat. Creating a magic item using that feat requires one day per 10,000 gp of the item’s market price, with a minimum of one day.

Normal: Without this feat, creating a magic item requires one day for each 1,000 gp of the item’s market price.

Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time a character takes the feat, it applies to a different item creation feat.

Efficient Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can cast a spell as a move action.

Benefit: Casting an efficient spell is a move action which provokes an attack of opportunity. A spell whose casting time is more than 1 full round action cannot be efficient. An efficient spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell’s actual level. You may cast only one quickened spell or efficient spell per round.

Special: This feat cannot be applied to any spell cast spontaneously (including sorcerer spells, bard spells, and cleric or druid spells cast spontaneously), since applying a metamagic feat to a spontaneously cast spell automatically increases the casting time to a full-round action.

Elusive Target[edit]

General, Fighter

You use your opponents as a shield against snipers.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Defensive Arts

Benefit: When fighting an opponent or multiple opponents in melee, other opponents attempting to target you with ranged attacks take a –4 penalty. This penalty is in addition to the normal –4 penalty for firing into melee, making the penalty to target to character –8.

Prerequisite: Elf or half-elf, Dex 13, Point Blank Shot, Base attack bonus +4

Empower Power[edit]

Metapsionic

You can manifest powers to greater effect.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can empower a power. All variable, numeric effects of an empowered power are increased by one-half. An empowered power deals half again as much damage as normal, cures half again as many hit points, affects half again as many targets, and so forth, as appropriate. Augmented powers can also be empowered (multiply 1-1/2 times the damage total of the augmented power). Saving throws and opposed checks (such as the one you make when you manifest dispel psionics) are not affected, nor are powers without random variables. Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 2. The power’s total cost cannot exceed your manifester level.

Empower Spell-like Ability[edit]

Monster, Special, Magical

Your powers are more powerful.

Prerequisite: Spell-like ability at caster level 6th

Benefit: Choose one of the creature’s spell-like abilities, subject to the restrictions below. The creature can use that ability as an empowered spell-like ability three times per day (or less, if the ability is normally usable only once or twice per day). When a creature uses an empowered spell-like ability, all variable, numeric effects of the spell-like ability are increased by one half. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected. Spell-like abilities without random variables are not affected. The creature can only select a spell-like ability duplicating a spell with a level less than or equal to half its caster level (round down) –2. For a summary, see the table below.

Special: This feat can be taken multiple times. Each time it is taken, the creature can apply it to a different one of its spell-like abilities.

Enable Criticals[edit]

General, Fighter

You have learned to score critical hits on unusual creature types.

Benefit: Choose one type of creature that is normally immune to critical hits (construct, elemental, ooze, plant, undead). You can score critical hits against that type of creature, despite that this is not generally allowed.

Special: If you choose constructs, you can also score critical hits against inanimate objects. If you choose undead and are using an attack that does not suffer a miss chance against incorporeal opponents (like a ghost touch weapon), you can score critical hits against incorporeal undead.

Notes: This also allows you to use abilities and actions that only work against creatures subject to critical hits, such as Coup de Grace, Sneak Attack and the ranger's Favored Enemy damage bonus. A construct, object, or undead need never make a Fortitude save to survive a coup-de-grace.

You have shown yourself to be an ally of all nature's creatures; they, in turn, will respond to your call.

Prerequisite: Animal Companion ability

Benefit: You may select a magical beast or vermin as an animal companion. The level modifier depends on the creature's challenge rating. Creatures with a challenge rating of one or less have no modifier; other creatures use twice their challenge rating minus one, rounded to the closest multiple of three levels. So creatures with a Challenge Rating of 1 have no modifier, CR 2: level -3, CR 4: level -6, CR 5: level -9, CR 6-7: level -12, CR 8: level -15, etc.

(Updated to 3.5 by NBOF)

Comments: This feat was originally known as Improved Animal Friendship. Due to changes between edition 3.0 and 3.5 the mechanics of this feat have been substantially altered, although the spirit of the feat remains the same.

Balance: 4.20 (Purp 4.25, Pow 3.75, Port 4.25, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.25)

General

You have great endurance.

Benefit: You gain a +4 bonus on the following checks and saves: Swim checks made to resist nonlethal damage, Constitution checks made to continue running, Constitution checks made to avoid nonlethal damage from a forced march, Constitution checks made to hold your breath, Constitution checks made to avoid nonlethal damage from starvation or thirst, Fortitude saves made to avoid nonlethal damage from hot or cold environments, and Fortitude saves made to resist damage from suffocation. Also, you may sleep in light or medium armor without becoming fatigued.

Normal: A character without this feat who sleeps in medium or heavier armor is automatically fatigued the next day.

Energy Resistance[edit]

Epic

You can resist the effects of a chosen element.

Benefit: Choose a type of energy (acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic). You gains resistance 10 to that type of energy, or the your existing resistance to that type of energy increases by 10. This feat does not stack with energy resistance granted by magic items or nonpermanent magical effects.

Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. If the same type of energy is chosen, the effects stack.

Energy Substitution[edit]

Metamagic

You can change the type of damage done by a spell.

Prerequisite: Any other metamagic feat, Knowledge (arcana) 5 ranks

Benefit: You choose one type of energy: acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic. When employing a spell with the acid, cold, electricity, fire, or sonic designator, you can modify the spell to use your chosen type of energy instead. The altered spell uses a spell slot of the spell’s normal level. The altered spell works normally in all respects except the type of damage dealt.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time the feat applies to a different type of energy.

Enhance Spell[edit]

Epic, Metamagic

You can modify the upper limits of a spells damage.

Prerequisite: Maximize Spell

Benefit: The damage cap for your spells increases by 10 dice (for spells that deal a number of dice of damage equal to caster level) or by 5 dice (for spells that deal a number of dice of damage equal to half caster level). An enhanced spell uses up a spell slot four levels higher than the spell’s actual level. This feat has no effect on spells that don’t specifically deal a number of dice of damage equal to the caster’s level or half level, even if the spell’s effect is largely dictated by the caster’s level.

Normal: Without this feat, use the damage dice caps indicated in the spell’s description.

Special: A character may gain this feat multiple times. Each time he or she selects this feat, the damage cap increases by 10 dice or 5 dice, as appropriate to the spell, and the enhanced spell takes up a spell slot an additional four levels higher.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team agree that the requirement for the spell to take up a slot four levels higher is ludicrous, and especially as this is an epic metamagic feat it should not alter the spell slot level at all. After all, this feat does not make a spell any more powerful; it just moves the (what some people may call artificial) damage cap a bit higher.

Balance: 3.95 (Purp 4.50, Pow 3.00, Port 4.00, Comp 4.00, Rule 4.25)

Enhanced Companions[edit]

Benefit: If you have class levels in Bard, Sorcerer or another class that can cast arcane spells without preparation, you are able to learn bonus spells based on your Charisma attribute, as per the Table: Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells from the SRD. However, these spells are added to your number of spells known; this feat does not increase the number of spells that you can cast per day.

Normal: Bards and Sorcerers are normally fixed in their number of spells known per level.

Special: The bonus spells provided by this feat cannot be combined with the bonus spells provided by any other feat (based on ability score) other than Cantrip.

Enlarge Power[edit]

Metapsionic

You can manifest powers farther than normal.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You can alter a power with a range of close, medium, or long to increase its range by 100%. An enlarged power with a range of close has a range of 50 feet + 5 feet per level, a medium-range power has a range of 200 feet + 20 feet per level, and a long-range power has a range of 800 feet + 80 feet per level. Powers whose ranges are not defined by distance, as well as powers whose ranges are not close, medium, or long, are not affected. Using this feat does not increase the power point cost of the power.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team feels that a power cost increase of one point would be more in keeping with the power level of a feat.

Balance: 4.25 (Purp 4.50, Pow 4.00, Port 4.25, Comp 4.25, Rule 4.25)

Enlarge Spell[edit]

Metamagic

If you are able to act, you may manifest any psionic power normally without losing the Ever-Ready Shield. Using this feat increases the power point cost of the power by 3. You must know the psionic power in question in order to manifest it.

Normal: Manifesting empty mind, intellect fortress, mental barrier, thought shield or tower of iron will requires an immediate action. Immediate actions cannot be taken when surprised or caught flat-footed.

Special: You can gain Exotic Weapon Proficiency multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of exotic weapon. Proficiency with the bastard sword or the dwarven waraxe has an additional prerequisite of Str 13. A fighter may select Exotic Weapon Proficiency as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Expand Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can cast spells with a larger area of effect.

Benefit: An Expanded spell has its area increased by +5 ft in all dimensions. This feat does not affect spells without an area of effect stated in spatial terms. If the spell specifies a number of targets, that number is not affected. An Expanded spell takes up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Example: Burning Hands (1st level) affects anyone in a 15 ft long cone, starting at the caster, so an Expanded Burning Hands (2nd level) affects anyone in a 20 ft long cone. A normal Fireball has a 20-ft radius spread, and hence a 40-ft diameter, so an Expanded Fireball has a 45-ft diameter spread.

You may attack with exacting precision, resulting in extra damage.

Prerequisite: [[#Precise Shot|Precise Shot, Base attack bonus +6

Benefit: If you take the Full Attack action when using a device missile weapon (e.g. bow, crossbow), you may choose to make a single attack with a range of 30 ft. or less using your Expert Aim. While you normally apply your Dexterity bonus only to attack, in this case you also apply your Dexterity bonus to damage.

Extend Spell List[edit]

Magical

You gain the use of the spells of one domain.

Prerequisite: Spellcasting level 1st

Benefit: With this feat, you get to add the spells of one clerical domain to the spell list of one of your classes, regardless of your spellcasting class. You cast these spells as if they were normal spells of your spellcaster class. The new spells become arcane spells if you have an arcane spellcaster class but in this case you must still learn the spells in the normal manner; this feat only adds them to your spell list. If the domain power of the domain you picked is a spell-like ability, you get this spell added to your spell lists, as well. Examples include speak with animals of the animal domain and freedom of movement of the travel domain.

Special: A Wizard must always research these spells from scratch, using the standard game rules. As a divine spellcaster, you cannot learn domains inappropriate to the powers you serve. You can learn this feat multiple times. Each time you learn it you can choose to add the knowledge of the spells of one additional domain to one of your spellcasting classes. This can be a domain you already know if you are adding it to a different spellcasting class.

Notes: Use this feat with caution: it fits in open-ended campaigns, where characters are allowed to step outside the usual class limitations. It lets Sorcerers and Wizards learn healing spells.

Fake Spell[edit]

General

You can mimic the casting of spells

Prerequisite: Sleight of Hand 1 rank

Benefit: You say the words and make the gestures, but you don’t have the power needed to make the spell actually happen - it just looks like you do. You must have seen the spell you want to fake being cast several times in order to fake it. Make a Sleight of Hand check opposed to the observer's Spellcraft or Intelligence check.

Special: Somebody who has readied an action to counterspell and who fails to see through your trickery will think you are about to cast the spell being faked.

Notes: If the spell effect would have been unnoticeable (such as most divination spells) or you can fake the effects of the spell (perhaps through illusion, alchemical pyrotechnics or a willing accomplice), people watching you will generally believe the spell was real. Bluff, Perform, Craft (alchemy) and several other skills may be helpful in achieving this, but faking the spell effects themselves is outside the scope of this feat.

Benefit: When you cast a spell that normally requires your concentration, you can let your familiar do the concentrating for you if it is within 5 ft. of you at the time of casting. Your familiar must remain within 5 ft. of you while concentrating to maintain your spell; otherwise your familiar's concentration is automatically broken. To maintain a certain spell, the familiar must have an Intelligence score of 5 + the level of the spell or higher.

Far Touch Spell[edit]

Metamagic

After set-up, you can cast a touch spell on a willing creature at long range.

Benefit: Casting a far touch spell is a two-step process that may only be used on a willing target and may only be used with touch spells. First you tag the spell's eventual target by touching them and naming the spell. The spell is not yet cast, but this is a standard action that provokes an attack of opportunity. Thereafter you may cast this spell upon the target so long as they are within long range (400 feet + 40 feet per level). You may only have one tag active at a given time, even if you have more that one spell prepared with this feat. The tag effect ends when you cast the spell, or make a different tag, or when you renew your spells for the day. A far touch spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Normal: You must touch the target to cast a spell whose range is touch.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Each time allows you to have an additional tag active simultaneously.

Fast Item Creation[edit]

Magical

Spellcasters can create items faster.

Prerequisite: Ability to cast 4th level spells

Benefit: You increase the daily rate at which you create magical items by 1000 gp.

Normal: All spellcasters normally create items at the rate of 1000 gp per day.

Special: This feat can be taken several times, and stacks with itself. Each time it is chosen, add 1000 gp to the value of a single magical item that the character can create per day. Thus, items take half the usual time to create with one feat's worth of Fast Item Creation, one-third the usual time with two, and so on. A minimum of one day is still required for the creation of any item, however. In campaigns using Psionics this feat can also be used to speed up the creation of psionic items, for those that meet an alternative (or additional) prerequisite of the ability to manifest 4th level powers.

Cuts the casting time of your spells.

Benefit: Fast Spell reduces the casting time of a spell which takes 1 full round to a standard action, and halves the casting time for spells that take longer than a full round to cast. Fast spell has no effect on spells with a casting time shorter than a full round. A Fast Spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Notes: As with Quicken Spell this feat has no effect on spells when used by spontaneous spellcasters such as Sorcerers or Bards.

Benefit: By spending a full-round action doing an impressive display with a weapon for which you have Weapon Finesse, you can use your base attack bonus plus Charisma bonus in lieu of your Intimidation skill.

Fearsome Fortitude[edit]

General

You are exceedingly difficult to kill.

Prerequisite: Con 15, Toughness

Benefit: Whenever you are killed by loss of hit points or a spell effect that causes instant death you may make a special Fortitude save to stay alive. For death spells the DC is the same as standard for a spell of that level (10 + spell level + attribute modifier + special), for death by damage the DC is the number of hit points you are below 0.

Benefit: Choose one weapon that you have Weapon Focus and Weapon Finesse for. When unencumbered, in light armor or less, and wielding this type of weapon, you may make one extra attack per round. The attack is at your highest base attack bonus, but each attack (the extra one and all the normal ones) suffer a -2 penalty. You must use the full attack action. This feat does not stack with other feats/abilities that grant extra attacks, such as Flurry of Blows, two weapon use, double weapons, or creatures that make multiple attacks. It does stack with the iterative attacks of a character with high base attack bonus.

Notes: This is a fencing technique, and fits well in a renaissance-style game.

You can push through enemy lines to create a breach.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +6

Benefit: When using the Full Attack action, if you deal a creature enough damage to make it drop (typically by dropping it to below 0 hit points or killing it), you may immediately move into the space they occupied if within 5’. This move does not provoke an attack of opportunity. There is no fixed limit to the number of times in a round this feat may be used, although you may not move further than your current movement rate in one round using this feat.

Special: You may not use this feat if you cannot fit into your opponent’s space because of other opponents or obstacles. When using this feat in conjunction with Cleave or a feat based on Cleave, you must take your bonus attacks from those feats before you move using Follow Up.

Benefit: Half of the damage inflicted by an arcane spell modified by this feat has the force descriptor, enabling it to affect incorporeal creatures and making it resistant to protection from elements and similar magic.

You can stop another vehicle during a sideswipe.

Prerequisite: Drive 4 ranks, [[#Vehicle Expert|Vehicle Expert

Benefit: When you attempt a sideswipe stunt with a surface vehicle, you can force the other vehicle to a stop by nudging it into a controlled side¬ways skid. In addition to the nor¬mal requirements for attempting a sideswipe stunt, you must have sufficient movement re¬maining to move a number of squares equal to your turn number. After succeeding on the check to attempt the sideswipe, you make a Drive check opposed by the other driver. If you succeeds, turn the other vehicle 90 degrees across the front of your, so that they form a tee. Move them forward a distance equal to your turn number. The vehicles end their movement at that location, at stationary speed, and take their normal sideswipe damage. If you fail the check, resolve the sideswipe normally.

Item Creation

You can create magical rings.

Prerequisite: Caster level 12th

Benefit: You can create any ring whose prerequisites you meet. Crafting a ring takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. To craft a ring, you must spend 1/25 of its base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of its base price. You can also mend a broken ring if it is one that you could make. Doing so costs half the XP, half the raw materials, and half the time it would take to forge that ring in the first place. Some magic rings incur extra costs in material components or XP, as noted in their descriptions. You must pay such a cost to forge such a ring or to mend a broken one.

Benefit: When you make a full attack action with a melee weapon, you may take an additional attack at your highest base attack bonus. However, this additional attack and all others suffer a -4 penalty this round.

Geometric Wall[edit]

Metamagic

You can shape your wall spells making rings, hemispheres, or spheres.

Benefit: You can choose to alter the wall shape differently as shown below. A spell without "Effect: Wall" in its description or "wall" in its name is not affected by this feat. A wall that can already be adjusted into a particular shape uses this feat's dimensions or the spell description's dimensions, whichever you desire. Creatures must stand on one inner edge of a sphere-shaped wall and thus suffer the effects (if any) of the wall each round they are encapsulated. A Geometric Wall spell uses up a spell slot two levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Normal: You can only shape a wall spell if it has the Shapeable designation at the end of its Area or Effect entry. In addition, a wall's spell description must specifically mention allowable shapes (ring, hemisphere, or sphere).

Ghost Attack[edit]

[[#PSIONIC|Psionic, Fighter

Your deadly strikes against incorporeal foes always find their mark.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: You must be psionically focused to use this feat. When you make a melee attack or a ranged attack against an incorporeal creature, you can make two rolls to check for the miss chance. If either is successful, the attack is treated as if it were made with a ghost touch weapon for the purpose of affecting the creature. Your weapon or natural weapon actually appears to become briefly incorporeal as the attack is made.

Ghost Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You can cast spells that are especially effective against incorporeal opponents.

Benefit: Any spell with a damage descriptor prepared as a ghost spell is fully effective against corporeal and incorporeal opponents. An incorporeal creature struck by a ghost spell suffers the normal damage inflicted by the spell and does not have a 50% change to ignore this damage. A ghost spell uses up a spell slot one level higher that the spell’s normal level.

Normal: Incorporeal creatures have a 50% chance to ignore spells cast from a corporeal source unless the spell has a force effect.

Prerequisite: Wis 13, Ki Strike class ability

Your long legs allow you to take longer steps.

Prerequisite: Natural reach of 10 ft or longer

Benefit: What is normally a 5 ft. step is longer for you. Whenever you could normally take a 5 ft. step, you may instead move a distance equal to your natural reach, without provoking attacks of opportunity. You still cannot move through the squares of other creatures, unless the size difference is great enough to allow you to occupy the same space. Nor can you move farther than your speed in this way.

Giveaway Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You give away control over a spell.

Benefit: You transfer the control of a spell to another willing creature that you touch at the time of casting, such as levitate or flaming sphere. This does not work on spells with a personal range, or an emanation area, or an instantaneous duration. It also does not alter spells whose initial effects are fixed, but whose durations last some time - for example, when you cast charm person it may last days, but when you cast the spell the victim will always view the caster as their friend (if they fail the saving throw). In all other ways the spell functions as normal; the save DC and level-dependent functions are based upon your the caster's abilities. You still make all the decisions inherent in casting the spell, such as what the initial target is, but if the effect can be moved (for example flaming sphere), the creature in control decides how. If the spell requires concentration to maintain, the creature you transfer it to must maintain this concentration, and they can opt to end a dismissable spell at their whim. A Giveaway Spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Special: A creature must have an Intelligence score of at least 1 to receive control of a Giveaway Spell; if you try to transfer control to a non-intelligent creature then the spell will instantly dissipate and be wasted.

Metamagic

You have mastered your body’s ability to hold a magical charge.

You are only considered “armed” when you attempt to use the touch attack itself, otherwise, you will draw an attack of opportunity as per normal when casting another spell. If you fail a concentration check while using this feat, the charged touch spell will also dissipate.

He has previously selected the Spell Mastery feat, selecting three spells based on his Int modifier (dimension door, magic missile and lightning bolt). He next selects the Greater Spell Mastery feat, choosing one spell based on his Cha modifier that he has previously learned with Spell Mastery (magic missile).

Whenever he decides to cast magic missile, he can cast this spell in place of one of his prepared 1st-level spells, casting up to a maximum of 5 magic missile or first level spells per day in any combination. He could also choose to cast magic missile by trading in one of his higher level prepared spells in a similar manner.

Heirloom[edit]

General

You have inherited a family heirloom of great value with which to begin your career. Your family expects you to guard this heirloom above all other things, of course, and eventually hand it down to your own child...

Benefit: You begin the game with a single magic or exotic item worth roughly 2000gp. It is up to the GM to assign this item.

Special: You can only take this feat at character creation.

Notes: If a magical item is chosen it should probably be a permanent item instead of a one use or limited charge item.

Herculean Effort[edit]

General

You can temporarily perform great acts of strength.

Benefit: You can add +4 to your Strength attribute for purposes of lifting and carrying weight and for figuring your Strength bonus on ability checks for a number of rounds equal to 3 plus your Constitution modifier. After this time you are fatigued (-2 to Strength, -2 to Dexterity, can’t run or charge). Your increased strength does not affect attack or damage rolls, combat maneuvers like Grapple, Bull Rush and Trip, and does not increase your strength bonus on skill checks.

Hide Tracks[edit]

General

You can conceal signs of passage.

Prerequisite: [[#Track|Track

Benefit: You can conceal the tracks you and your companions make while moving. Add your ranks in Survival to the DC of following your tracks. You can move at full speed while hiding tracks; if you move at half speed, you impose the additional +5 DC modifier on tracking rolls noted in the Track feat.

Normal: Anyone can use the survival skill to remove the traces at a campsite or the search skill to hide clues at a location.

Hindering Song[edit]

Epic, Song

Your music can disrupt spell casting.

Prerequisite: [[#Deafening Song|Deafening Song, Perform 27 ranks, Bardic music class feature

Benefit: You can use song or poetics to hinder enemy spellcasters within a 30-foot spread from you. To successfully cast a spell within this area, a spellcaster must make a Concentration check as if he or she were casting defensively, and all such checks have a penalty equal to half your level. You can choose to exclude any characters from this effect. You may sing, play, or recite a hindering song while taking other mundane actions, but not magical ones (see the bard’s inspire courage ability for more details). You may keep up the hindering song for a maximum of 10 rounds. Using the hindering song counts as one of your uses of song or poetics for the day.

Hobbling Attack[edit]

General, Fighter

Your attacks can slow down an opponent.

Prerequisite: Int 13, Base attack bonus +4

Benefit: Once per round you may declare a standard attack to be a hobbling attack. You suffer a -4 to hit penalty on your attack roll but if you deal any damage the target must make a Fortitude Save (DC 10 + ½ damage dealt) or their speed is reduced by one-half. This movement penalty lasts for 24 hours, or until the creature is successfully treated with a DC 15 Heal check, or until it receives at least 1 point of magical curing. Multiple Hobbling Attacks are not cumulative in effect.

Special: This feat is ineffective against creatures that are not subject to critical hits (e.g. constructs, elementals, oozes, plants, undead, and characters whose armor fortification successfully activated). It also does not affect creatures with a supernatural means of locomotion (levitation or the like). If a creature has multiple modes of movement you must select which type of movement you are reducing.

Hold The Line[edit]

General, Fighter

You can attack charging opponents.

Prerequisite: Combat Reflexes, Base attack bonus +2

Benefit: You may make an attack of opportunity against a charging opponent who enters an area you threaten. Your attack of opportunity happens immediately before the charge attack is resolved.

Normal: You only get an attack of opportunity against a character that exits a square you threaten.

Hole In The Middle[edit]

Metamagic

You can create a hole in an area spell to avoid being affected

Benefit: When you cast an area spell in such a way that you are in the area affected, you can create a hole in the area around yourself to avoid being affected by your own spell. Any creatures occupying your square(s) (for example grappling you or being small enough to fit between your feet or on your shoulder) are also unaffected. A Hole in the Middle Spell uses up a spell slot one level higher than the spell's actual level.

Holy Strike[edit]

Epic, Special

Any weapon in your hands is a holy weapon.

Prerequisite: Smite evil class feature, Any good alignment

Benefit: Any weapon you wields is treated as a holy weapon (is good-aligned and deals an extra 2d6 points of damage against creatures of evil alignment).If the weapon already has an alignment, this feat has no effect on the weapon.

Hostile Mind[edit]

General

Your mind recoils violently against those who use psionics against you.

Prerequisite: Cha 15

Benefit: Whenever you are subject to a power from the telepathy discipline (regardless of whether the power is harmful or beneficial to you), the manifester must make a Will saving throw against a DC of 10 + 1/2 your character level + your Charisma bonus or take 2d6 points of damage. The benefit of this feat applies only to psionic powers and psi-like abilities. This is an exception to the psionics–magic transparency rule.

Special: You cannot take or use this feat if you have the ability to use powers (if you have a power point reserve or psi-like abilities).

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team is not generally in favor of feats such as these that break the magic-psionics transparency rule.

Balance: 3.70 (Purp 4.25, Pow 2.75, Port 4.25, Comp 3.75, Rule 3.50)

Hover[edit]

Monster, Special

You can hover in place while flying.

Prerequisite: Fly speed

Benefit: When flying, the creature can halt its forward motion and hover in place as a move action. It can then fly in any direction, including straight down or straight up, at half speed, regardless of its maneuverability. If a creature begins its turn hovering, it can hover in place for the turn and take a full-round action. A hovering creature cannot make wing attacks, but it can attack with all other limbs and appendages it could use in a full attack. The creature can instead use a breath weapon or cast a spell instead of making physical attacks, if it could normally do so. If a creature of Large size or larger hovers within 20 feet of the ground in an area with lots of loose debris, the draft from its wings creates a hemispherical cloud with a radius of 60 feet. The winds so generated can snuff torches, small campfires, exposed lanterns, and other small, open flames of non-magical origin. Clear vision within the cloud is limited to 10 feet. Creatures have concealment at 15 to 20 feet (20% miss chance). At 25 feet or more, creatures have total concealment (50% miss chance, and opponents cannot use sight to locate the creature). Those caught in the cloud must succeed on a Concentration check (DC 10 + 1/2 creature’s HD) to cast a spell.

Normal: Without this feat, a creature must keep moving while flying unless it has perfect maneuverability.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team feel that this feat is overpowered, and would be more in keeping with the power level of an average feat, as well as being substantially less complex, without the inclusion of the debris field creation.

Balance: 3.95 (Purp 4.00, Pow 3.75, Port 4.25, Comp 3.75, Rule 4.00)

Identify Item[edit]

General

You can identify magic items without the use of magic.

Prerequisite: Appraise 8 ranks, Spellcraft 8 ranks, Use Magic Device 8 ranks, [[#Learn Command|Learn Command

Benefit: By making a detailed study of a magic item for 6 hours and a successful Use Magic Device check (DC25) you can duplicate the effects of the identify spell.

Ignore Material Components[edit]

Epic, Magical

You never need material components for your spells.

Prerequisite: [[#Eschew Materials|Eschew Materials, Spellcraft 25 ranks, Ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells

Benefit: You may cast spells without any material components. This feat does not affect the need for a focus or divine focus.

Immediate Dodge[edit]

General, Fighter

You may spontaneously elect to dodge incoming attacks that you are aware of.

Prerequisite: Dodge, Dex 13+

Benefit: As an immediate action, you can elect to give up your next turn to perform the total defense combat action, thus gaining the appropriate dodge bonus to your armor class against incoming attacks (+4 dodge bonus, or +6 dodge bonus if you have five ranks or more of Tumble). You must be able to apply your Dexterity bonus to AC against the attack, and you must declare this immediate action before the attacker makes their attack roll. Your initiative does not change; you simply do not take an action on your next turn. You gain this dodge bonus until the next time your initiative comes up after your "skipped" turn.

Special: You may apply any benefits of feats or special abilities that improve your dodge bonus to your AC when you activate this ability that you could normally apply to a total defense combat action made on your turn.

Notes: You can’t make attacks of opportunity while using the total defense combat action. An immediate action can be taken at any point, even when it's not your turn.

Impact Spell[edit]

Magical

You can increase the maximum damage of heightened spells.

Prerequisite: Arcane spellcaster, Heighten Spell

Benefit: If you prepare a damage causing arcane spell with a higher than normal level using the Heighten Spell metamagic feat, the maximum number of damage dice may be increased. If the spell causes damage to one creature, or must be split amongst multiple creatures (e.g. Shocking Grasp), the revised maximum dice allowed is given in the second column (Single). If the spell causes damage to any creatures that fall within its area of effect (e.g. Fireball), refer to the third column (Multiple) for the revised maximum dice allowed. This feat does not affect spells similar to Magic Missile, as in this case it is the number of missiles that has a level-based maximum, rather than the damage per missile.

New Level Max # of Damage Dice for
a Single Creature Affected Multiple Creatures Affected
1st 5 5
2nd 10 5
3rd 10 10
4th 15 10
5th 15 15
6th 20 15


7th 20 20
8th 25 20
9th 25 25

Notes: Looking at the spell lists, few divine spells are flashy, damage causing spells. In addition, these spells are generally alignment related. For this reason, this feat did not seem appropriate or have the right flavor for divine spellcasters. If deities could grant more damage against infidels with a particular spell, they already would. This is the reason for their omission. GMs may, of course, opt to allow this feat for clerics or all divine spellcasters.

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team is split as to whether this feat should also be available to divine spellcasters and spells.

Imprint Stone[edit]

Item Creation, Psionic

You can create power stones to store psionic powers.

Prerequisite: Manifester level 1st

Benefit: You can create a power stone of any power that you know. Encoding a power stone takes one day for each 1,000 gp in its base price. The base price of a power stone is the level of the stored power x its manifester level x 25 gp. To imprint a power stone, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw materials costing one-half of this base price. Any power stone that stores a power with an XP cost also carries a commensurate cost. In addition to the costs derived from the base price, you must pay the XP when encoding the stone.

You can cast stronger spells of a given alignment.

Prerequisite: Access to domain of Chaos, Evil, Good, Or Law, Alignment must match domain chosen, Ability to cast 9th-level divine spells

Benefit: Select an alignment-based domain (Chaos, Evil, Good, or Law) to which you have access. You cast spells with that alignment descriptor at +3 caster level.

Special: This benefit overrides (does not stack with) the granted powers of the Chaos, Evil, Good, and Law domains. A character may select this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time a character takes the feat, it applies to a different alignment-based domain to which the character has access.

Prerequisite: Animal Companion ability

Benefit: Your effective level for the Animal Companion ability is three levels higher than normal. As noted in the SRD this improves the abilities of your existing animal companion, or alternatively allows you to attract a more powerful one.

Special: You may select this feat multiple times. It stacks with itself.

Prerequisite: [[#Blind-fight|Blind-fight, Alertness, Base attack bonus +9

Prerequisite: [[#Brawl|Brawl, Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: When making an unarmed attack, you receive a +2 competence bonus on your attack roll, and you deal nonlethal damage equal to 1d8 + your Strength modifier.

Improved Caster Level[edit]

Magical

You raise your caster level for multiple classes.

Prerequisite: Ability to cast spells

Benefit: Your caster level in all spellcasting classes is increased by four, but no higher than your total Character Level.

Special: You can take this feat multiple times – its effects stack.

Example: Yushu is a fifth level sorcerer. She advances in character level to six, and decides to advance as a rogue. She also acquires a new feat, and picks this one. Her caster level as a sorcerer is now sixth, so her fireball has range of 640' and does six dice of damage, but the number of spells she can cast and learn are still those of a fifth level sorcerer. As she advances as a rogue, she will continue to gain caster levels until the full +4 level bonus is achieved.

Notes: This feat does not allow you to learn, prepare, or cast more spells. It is useful for multiclassed characters or characters with classes whose spellcaster level is less than their full character level.

You can cast spells without opening yourself to attack.

Prerequisite: Combat Casting, Concentration 25 ranks

Benefit: You doesn’t incur attacks of opportunity for casting spells when threatened.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: To cast a 9th level spell on the defensive requires a Concentration roll of 24. If you have a Concentration skill of 25 then you will never fail to cast spells on the defensive, making this feat useless unless the user is unaware of a foe who threatens them.

Balance: 4.00 (Purp 3.50, Pow 3.50, Port 4.00, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.50)

Improved Combat Throw[edit]

General, Fighter

You can trip opponents who over extend themselves in combat.

Prerequisite: Defensive Arts, [[#Combat Throw|Combat Throw, Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: In melee combat, if an opponent attacks and misses you, you may immediately make a trip attack against the opponent. This counts as an attack of opportunity, which you can make even if you are unarmed. Attacking unarmed in this way does not provoke an attack of opportunity.

Special: This feat doesn’t grant you more attacks of opportunity than you are normally allowed in a round.

Improved Critical[edit]

General, Fighter

Choose one type of weapon.

Prerequisite: [[#Martial Weapon Proficiency|Proficient With Weapon, Base attack bonus +8

Benefit: When using the weapon you selected, your threat range is doubled.

Special: You can gain Improved Critical multiple times. The effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of weapon. This effect doesn’t stack with any other effect that expands the threat range of a weapon. A fighter may select Improved Critical as one of his fighter bonus feats.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team agree that the edition 3.0 version of this feat which allows stacking of improved threat ranges makes more sense than the edition 3.5 version, and suggest using the original version as a house rule. The original version gains an overall balance score of 4.95.

You can wild shape into the form of an elemental.

Prerequisite: Wis 25, Ability to wild shape into an elemental

You gains all extraordinary and supernatural abilities of the elemental whose form your take.

Normal: Without this feat, a character may only wild shape into a Small, Medium-size, or Large air, earth, fire, or water elemental.

Comments: The Normal section of this feat is incorrect; in edition 3.5 a 20th level Druid can wild shape into Huge Elementals, which covers all of the larger (Huge, Greater and Elder) elementals in the SRD; the only restriction being the Druid's hit dice (21st level for Greater, 24th for Elder). As such this feat is only useful for turning into unusual elementals, such as Invisible Stalkers, which an Epic Druid could do by casting Shapechange anyway.

Either way, it now uses a spell slot three levels higher than normal.

Notes: Many variable-duration spells will not qualify for use with this feat until the caster reaches level 6 or 10, because that’s when they get sufficient duration (1 minute, 10 minutes or 1 hour).

Improved Familiar[edit]

Special

This feat allows spellcasters to acquire a new familiar from a nonstandard list, but only when they could normally acquire a new familiar.

Familiar Alignment Arcane Caster Level
Shocker lizard Neutral 5th
Stirge Neutral 5th
Formian worker Lawful neutral 7th
Imp Lawful evil 7th
Pseudodragon Neutral good 7th
Quasit Chaotic evil 7th

Improved familiars otherwise use the rules for regular familiars, with two exceptions: If the creature's type is something other than animal, its type does not change; and improved familiars do not gain the ability to speak with other creatures of their kind (although many of them already have the ability to communicate).

The list in the table above presents only a few possible improved familiars. Almost any creature of the same general size and power as those on the list makes a suitable familiar. Nor is the master's alignment the only possible categorization. For instance, improved familiars could be assigned by the master's creature type or subtype, as shown below.

Familiar Type/Subtype Arcane Caster Level
Celestial hawk1 Good 3rd
Fiendish Tiny viper snake2 Evil 3rd
Air elemental, Small Air 5th
Earth elemental, Small Earth 5th
Fire elemental, Small Fire 5th
Shocker lizard Electricity 5th
Water elemental, Small Water 5th
Homunculus3 Undead 7th
Ice Mephit Cold 7th
  1. Or other celestial animal from the standard familiar list.
  2. Or other fiendish animal from the standard familiar list.
  3. The master must first create the homunculus, substituting ichor or another part of the master's body for blood if necessary.

You can fire many arrows at once.

Prerequisite: Dex 19, Base attack bonus +21, [[#Manyshot|Manyshot, Point Blank Shot, [[#Rapid Shot|Rapid Shot

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. The effects stack, though you can’t lower the cost of any metapsionic power to less than 1 power point.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The 21st level prerequisite is useless as all epic feats have this prerequisite. The wording of this feat is incorrect if the spirit of the feat should be the same as Improved Metamagic; theoretically if you used a 2nd level power (3 pp) with a metapsionic feat that did not increase the power cost (eg something that changed an energy type from fire to cold) this feat would allow you to manifest that power for only 1 pp. The benefit should be altered to “Metapsionic powers you manifest cost 2 power points less than normal (to a minimum of +2 power points). This feat has no effect on metapsionic powers that inflate the cost by under 2 power points.”, and similarly change “1 power point” to “2 power points” in Special. This would make the feat functionally identical to Improved Metamagic.

You must use the spell slot as a member of the class in which you can already cast spells of the normal maximum spell level.

Spell Slots Above 9th Level

The Improved Spell Capacity feat allows characters to gain spell slots above 9th level (which can be used to hold lower-level spells or spells whose level has been increased beyond 9th by the use of metamagic feats).

A character with a very high score in the ability associated with his or her spellcasting (Intelligence for wizards; Wisdom for clerics, druids, paladins, and rangers; or Charisma for bards and sorcerers) may receive bonus spells of those levels, as shown on Table - Expanded Ability Modifiers and Bonus Spells, but only if they already have at least one spell slot of that level (such as from the Improved Spell Capacity feat). A character without any spell slots of a level can’t receive any bonus spells of that level, even if the appropriate ability score is high enough to award them.

Even though the table only includes ability scores up to 61 and spell slots up to 25th level, the progression continues infinitely in both directions. For ability scores beyond 61, or for spell slots above 25th level, expand the table to follow the same patterns as shown.

Innate Metamagic[edit]

Monster

The creature can use its spellcasting knowledge to modify its innate spell-like abilities with learned metamagic feats.

Prerequisite: Int 11, Innate spell-like ability, Ability to cast spells, One or more metamagic feats

Benefit: The creature can modify any of its innate spell-like abilities with any spell altering metamagic feat that it knows. In order to alter a spell-like ability in this manner, the creature must prepare (Wizards or Divine spellcasters) or spend (Sorcerer or Bard) a spell slot equal in level to the bonus level required for the metamagic feat in question (see examples below). Casting a metamagically enhanced spell-like ability also counts as one or its uses of that spell-like ability per day. Spontaneously casting a metamagically enhanced spell-like ability, like a Sorcerer or Bard, requires a full-round action (rather than a standard action).

Normal: Creatures cannot normally modify spell-like abilities with spell altering metamagic feats.

Special: This feat does not provide knowledge of any other metamagic feat and it cannot be used with class based spell-like abilities, like the druid's wild shape or paladin's ability to cure disease. Because spell-like abilities are cast without need of verbal, somatic or material components, modifying a spell-like ability with Silent Spell or Still Spell provides no additional game related benefit.

If you cast spells from a limited spell list (like a bard), you cannot choose Evocation or Necromancy as prohibited schools.

At 9th level, he took this feat again as he was able to meet the increased prerequisites of 15 or higher in Intelligence, Wisdom and Charisma, giving him a total discount of 15% to XP costs.

Prerequisite: Perform 30 ranks, Bardic music class feature

Benefit: You can use song or poetics to grant a bonus to one ability score to your allies. To be affected, an ally must hear the bard sing for 1 full round. The effect lasts as long as you sing and for 5 rounds after you stop singing (or 5 rounds after the ally can no longer hear you).

Inspiring Love[edit]

General, Role Play

Your love bolsters your efficacy when doing something for your beloved.

Benefit: You must select another person to be your beloved when you take this feat. This is usually a lover, but can be a child or even just a very close friend. Every time you do something specifically for your beloved's benefit, like going on a quest or fighting a duel for your love, you gain a +1 morale bonus to attack rolls and skill checks. This does not include things you merely do together – you have to be doing this for the sake of your love. Loving an adventuring companion will not give you a bonus on all your adventures however. If your beloved has acknowledged your love, and given you an appropriate token (handkerchief, lock of hair, etc.), this bonus increases to +2, as long as you wear this token over your heart.

Special: You must be true to your love for this feat being effective; meaning you must think about your love every day, risk your safety for love, etc. Should the object of your love die, you might still gain these benefits when exacting revenge or building a monument to them or the like.

Copyright 2002, Dominique Crouzet, Carl Cramér

Comments: This is typically a paladin feat, and would fit very well with a bard. It is inspired by the medieval knights' tradition of courtly love. Lancelot for instance, could be seen as having this feat with regard to Queen Guinevere, while King Arthur (Guinevere's husband) doesn't have it.

Instant Awakening[edit]

General

You can instantly awaken from sleep at the slightest sign of danger.

Benefit: When subject to an attack while asleep, you may make an immediate Reflex save (DC 15) to awaken and defend yourself normally. On a successful save you are not considered helpless or surprised, so you are not vulnerable to a coup de grace, and you may take a standard action in the surprise round (if one occurs); roll for initiative and resolve attacks normally. You may still be considered flat-footed if your initiative is worse than your attacker's.

Normal: A sleeping opponent is flat-footed, helpless (+4 circumstance bonus to strike, treat Dexterity as 0 and apply the -5 modifier to Armor Class) and vulnerable to coup de grace attacks.

Instant Reload[edit]

Epic, Fighter

You can load your crossbow with amazing speed.

Prerequisite: [[#Quick Draw|Quick Draw, [[#Rapid Reload|Rapid Reload, Weapon Focus (crossbow Type To Be Selected)

Benefit: You may fire the selected type of crossbow at your full normal attack rate. Reloading the crossbow does not provoke attacks of opportunity.

Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time a character takes the feat, it applies to a different type of crossbow.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team feels that this should be a normal, not Epic, feat.

Intensify Poison[edit]

Stealth

You know how to intensify the effect of a poison.

Prerequisite: Poison Use ability

Benefit: You can distill two doses of an identical poison into a single dose. This increases the DC to resist the effects of the poison by 2 and takes one hour to complete.

Intensify Spell[edit]

Epic, Metamagic

You can imbue your spells with legendary power.

Prerequisite: [[#Empower Spell|Empower Spell, Maximize Spell, Spellcraft 30 ranks, Ability to cast 9th-level arcane or divine spells

Benefit: All variable, numeric effects of an intensified spell are maximized, then doubled. An intensified spell deals twice maximum damage, cures twice the maximum number of hit points, affects twice the maximum number of targets, and so forth, as appropriate. Saving throws and opposed rolls are not affected. An intensified spell uses up a spell slot seven levels higher than the spell’s actual level. You can’t combine the effects of this feat with any other feat that affects the variable, numeric effects of a spell.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: With a level increase of +7 this feat is virtually useless without Improved Spell Capacity as well. Consider that for +5 levels you can combine Empower Spell and Maximize spell to do 150% of maximum damage; this does 200%, so only one third more. Bearing in mind you have to spend an additional epic feat to get this ability it is suggested to have only a +5 level increase for this feat, or no more than +6.

Balance: 4.15 (Purp 4.00, Pow 3.50, Port 4.25, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.50)

Intimate Knowledge[edit]

General, Role Play

You have thorough knowledge of a specific individual.

Prerequisite: Sense Motive 4 ranks, Knows individual well

Benefit: Chose one specific individual with whom you meet the prerequisites. You gain a +10 to Sense Motivation checks directed at that individual, and a +5 to all Charisma based skill checks directed at that individual. If you have gone over a year without using this feat, you may replace the specified individual with another with whom you meet the prerequisites.

Special: ‘Knows person well’ equates to spending approximately 500 hours observing &/or interacting with specific individual. This works out to around two months of extensive daily interaction or 1 year of more limited but still substantial contact.

You can use your knowledge of an individual to enhance your magic.

Prerequisite: Sense Motive 4 ranks, Knows individual well, [[#Intimate Knowledge|Intimate Knowledge, Able to cast spells

Benefit: A spell modified by this feat ignores the saving throw, spell resistance, and Abjuration magic of the character with whom you have the Intimate Knowledge feat. An Intimate Spell spell uses a spell slot four levels higher than the spell’s actual level.

Intuitive Spell Preparation[edit]

Magical

You can recover spell slots without rest or need for meditation.

Prerequisite: Ability to cast 1st level Arcane spells without preparation (like a Bard or Sorcerer)

Benefit: Choose one spellcasting class that meets the above prerequisites plus a particular time of day (dawn, noon, dusk or midnight is recommended). Rather than regaining spell slots after resting, every day at this time your spell slots in this class automatically refresh, allowing you to cast your daily allotment of spells without need for rest or meditation. All spell slots used within 8 hours prior to your chosen time of day do not refresh and count against your daily spell limit for the following day.

Normal: Bards and sorcerers must rest for 8 hours and spend 15 minutes playing music or concentrating in order to recover their spell slots.

Invisible Spell[edit]

Metamagic

You may make your spells invisible.

Benefit: A hidden spell incorporates an illusion that renders it and its effects invisible. Invisible Spell does not conceal the casting of the spell, only the spell effects. An invisible spell uses up a spell slot three levels higher than the spell's actual level.

Special: This feat does not work with Illusion Magic, or spells that depend on light or visibility for their effects. Casters who are prohibited from casting illusion spells can not use this feat. Non-permanent magical effects including invisible ones can be spotted as per invisible creatures with a DC20 Spot check for mobile effects, and DC 40 for non-mobile effects.

Notes: If the spell reasonably makes noise, has odor, or a tactile effect of some kind these effects are not hidden, it operates like any other invisibility effect. The “spell effects” refer to any magical manifestation of the spell, not indirect results of the spell. For instance, a ball of fire would be invisible but anything it ignites would be visibly burning.

Keen Strike[edit]

Epic, Special

Your unarmed strikes cut like a blade.

Prerequisite: Str 23, Wis 23, [[#Improved Critical|Improved Critical (unarmed Strike), Improved Unarmed Strike, Stunning Fist, Ki strike (adamantine)

Benefit: Your unarmed strike has a critical threat range of 18-20 and deals slashing damage (at your option any attack can deal bludgeoning damage, but cannot then take advantage of the enhanced threat range). This ability doesn’t stack with other abilities that expand your unarmed strike’s threat range.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: Interestingly this feat effectively breaks the 'no doubling of critical threat ranges' rule that was introduced in edition 3.5. However, seeing as the Netbook of Feats team disagrees with that rule anyway, we have no problem with this feat - although we do believe that there should be similar feats for non-monk characters with weapons.

Prerequisite: Wis 13, Monk base AC bonus 1

Benefit: You can make a Will save (DC 20) to avoid being caught surprised or flat-footed. On a successful save, you can act during the surprise round even if you would otherwise be surprised and you can retain your Dex bonus to armor class even if you would otherwise be caught flat-footed.

Benefit: To use this feat, you must expend your psionic focus. You are able to manifest two psionic defense powers as an immediate action (limited to the powers empty mind, intellect fortress, mental barrier, thought shield or tower of iron will). Manifesting two defense powers simultaneously costs a number of power points equal to the standard cost to activate both psionic powers +1, and you must know the powers in question in order to manifest them.

Prerequisite: Dex 13, Dodge, Bluff 4 ranks, Combat Reflexes

Benefit: If someone makes a ranged weapon against you while you are fighting in melee combat, you may make a Bluff check opposed by the attacker’s Sense Motive check + their Base Attack Bonus. If you succeed, the attacker instead attacks a target you designate who is adjacent to you or occupies the same space.

Leadership[edit]

General

Allies flock to your banner.

Prerequisite: Character level 6th

Benefit: Having this feat enables you to attract loyal companions and devoted followers, subordinates who assist you. See the tables below for what sort of cohort and how many followers you can recruit.

Leadership Modifiers: Several factors can affect your Leadership score, causing it to vary from the base score (character level + Cha modifier). Your reputation (from the point of view of the cohort or follower he is trying to attract) raises or lowers your Leadership score:

Leader's Reputation Modifier
Great renown +2
Fairness and generosity +1
Special power +1
Failure -1
Aloofness -1
Cruelty -2

Other modifiers may apply when you try to attract a cohort:

The Leader... Modifier
Has a familiar, special mount or animal companion -2
Recruits a cohort of a different alignment -1
Caused the death of a cohort -2 *
  • Cumulative per cohort killed.


Followers have different priorities from cohorts. When you try to attract a new follower, use any of the following modifiers that apply.

The Leader... Modifier
Has a stronghold, base of operations, guildhouse or the like +2
Moves around a lot -1
Caused the death of other followers -1


Leadership Score Cohort Level Number of Followers by Level
1st 2nd 3rd 4th 5th 6th
1 or less - - - - - - -
2 1st - - - - - -
3 2nd - - - - - -
4 3rd - - - - - -
5 3rd - - - - - -

22 15th 75 7 4 2 2 1
23 16th 90 9 5 3 2 1
24 17th 110 11 6 3 2 1
25 or higher 17th 135 13 7 4 2 2



Leadership Score: Your base Leadership score equals your level plus any Charisma modifier. In order to take into account negative Charisma modifiers, this table allows for very low Leadership scores, but you must still be 6th level or higher in order to gain the Leadership feat. Outside factors can affect your Leadership score, as detailed above

Cohort Level: You can attract a cohort of up to this level. Regardless of your Leadership score, you can only recruit a cohort who is two or more levels lower than yourself. The cohort should be equipped with gear appropriate for its level. You can try to attract a cohort of a particular race, class, and alignment. The cohort's alignment may not be opposed to your alignment on either the law-vs-chaos or good-vs-evil axis, and you take a Leadership penalty if your recruit a cohort of an alignment different from your own.

Cohorts earn XP as follows:

The cohort does not count as a party member when determining the party's XP.

Divide the cohort's level by the level of the PC with whom he or she is associated (the character with the Leadership feat who attracted the cohort).

Multiply this result by the total XP awarded to the PC and add that number of experience points to the cohort's total.

If a cohort gains enough XP to bring it to a level one lower than the associated PC's character level, the cohort does not gain the new level-its new XP total is 1 less than the amount needed attain the next level.

Number of Followers by Level: You can lead up to the indicated number of characters of each level. Followers are similar to cohorts, except they're generally low-level NPCs. Because they're generally five or more levels behind the character they follow, they're rarely effective in combat.

Followers don't earn experience and thus don't gain levels. However, when a character with Leadership attains a new level, the player consults the table above to determine if she has acquired more followers, some of which may be higher level than the existing followers. (You don't consult the table to see if your cohort gains levels, however, because cohorts earn experience on their own.)

Comments: Although admittedly not listed in the SRD (still), it has been acknowledged by Skip Williams that the Leadership feat can be taken multiple times, and that it gives you both followers and a cohort, not one or the other.


A modification has also been suggested by Skip and others; the follower (not cohort) levels above should apply only to those with basic NPC Classes, i.e. Commoners, Experts and Warriors. Those with more advanced NPC Classes (Adepts and Aristocrats) and all PC Classes should be treated as if they are a level higher, and those with a prestige class as if they are two levels higher. So, for example, the most powerful follower of someone with a leadership score of 21 could be a 6th level Expert, but only a 5th level Wizard, or a 4th level character with a prestige class (which rules out all prestige classes in the SRD).

Learn Command[edit]

General

You are good at figuring out how to activate magic items.

Prerequisite: Use Magic Device 5 ranks

Benefit: If you are successful when activating an item blindly (use magic device check DC25) you actually learn the true command word or activation mechanism for the item you are using and thus no longer need to activate it blindly henceforth.

Notes: You still may need to make a use magic device check to use the item if you don’t meet the normal requirements for it, you only get to skip the activate blindly check.

Learned Metamagic[edit]

Metamagic

Through hard work, study and dedication, you have learned to combine your arcane knowledge with your innate spellcasting ability, enabling you to prepare certain metamagic spells.

Prerequisite: Int 13, Ability to cast Arcane spells without preparation (like a Bard or Sorcerer), Any Metamagic feat, Spellcraft 8 ranks, Knowledge (Arcana) 8 ranks

Benefit: You can prepare metamagically-enhanced versions of spells that you know exactly like a Wizard. Prepared metamagic spells take up a spellcasting slot of the appropriate level (against a Bard or Sorcerer’s spells per day) until cast, per the base spell and metamagic feat used to augment it. This spell slot cannot be used to cast another spell. Only spells known by the Bard or Sorcerer can be prepared in this fashion, and preparing a metamagic spell takes 15 minutes. A prepared metamagic spell is cast exactly as if the spell were cast by a Wizard, per the normal casting time of the base spell, and once cast the metamagic spell cannot be recast without being prepared again.

Normal: Bards and Sorcerers do not normally prepare spells.

Special: This allows a Bard or Sorcerer to make full use of Quicken Spell and similar feats. It does not provide knowledge of any other metamagic feat.

Balance: 3.60 (Purp 3.25, Pow 2.75, Port 4.00, Comp 4.25, Rule 3.75)

Legendary Tracker[edit]

Epic, Special

You can track in almost any environment.

Prerequisite: Wis 25, Track, Knowledge (nature) 30 ranks, Survival 30 ranks

Benefit: You can track creatures across water, under-water, or through the air. This adds the surfaces of water, underwater, and air to the list of surfaces found under the Track feat - Surface DC Water 60 Underwater 80 Air 120

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: In the Epic Skills section of the SRD several skills are given additional uses with high DCs. As such some members of the Netbook of Feats team believe that the Survival skill should be similarly expanded for free, rather than requiring this epic feat.

Balance: 3.80 (Purp 3.50, Pow 3.50, Port 4.00, Comp 4.25, Rule 3.75)

Legendary Wrestler[edit]

Epic, Fighter

You are a true master of grappling.

Prerequisite: Str 21, Dex 21, Improved Unarmed Strike, Escape Artist 15 ranks

Benefit: You gain a +10 bonus on all grapple checks.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: The Netbook of Feats team believes that in comparison with the measly +2 from Epic Weapon Focus that this feat is overpowered - consider what a large monster with a good grapple check could do with this feat, especially if it had Snatch or a similar ability that allowed it to do automatic damage.

Balance: 3.70 (Purp 3.75, Pow 2.75, Port 4.00, Comp 4.25, Rule 3.75)

Light As A Feather[edit]

Special

Your ability to levitate makes you all but immune to falling damage.

Prerequisite: Ability to levitate as a spell-like ability

Benefit: Instead of using your spell-like ability to levitate, you may feather fall per the spell, cast at your normal levitate caster level. Each use of feather fall counts as one of your levitate uses per day.

Balance: 4.08 (Purp 3.80, Pow 4.20, Port 3.40, Comp 4.60, Rule 4.40)

Lighten Weapon[edit]

General, Fighter

You can wield a chosen weapon with less effort.

Prerequisite: Str 13, Base attack bonus +1

Benefit: Chose one type of weapon. When using a weapon of that type you may reduce the effort required to wield it by one step but suffer a -2 penalty to hit with that weapon. This allows you to wield a weapon one size larger as if it were your own size, use a two handed weapon in one hand, or a one handed weapon in your off hand as a light weapon.

Normal: Weapons of a size category one step larger increase the effort required to wield them by one step, light becoming one handed, one handed becoming two handed, and two handed becoming un-wieldable. Two handed weapons may not be used one handed. Using a one handed weapon in your off hand results in suffering a -2 attack penalty to all of your attacks (in addition to other off hand penalties that may apply).

Special: The effect of this feat does not stack with other feats that alter wielding effort or weapon size. You may take this feat multiple times each time choosing a different type of weapon.

Example: Rogar the Human Fighter takes Lighten Weapon and chooses Greatsword. He can now use a Medium sized Greatsword in one hand with a -2 to hit and adding 1 x Strength bonus to damage. He can also wield a Large sized Greatsword in two hands with a -2 to hit and adding 1.5 x Strength bonus to damage.

Lightning Parry[edit]

General, Fighter

You use your lightning-quick strikes for defense instead of attack.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +3

Benefit: For each attack that you give up, you get a +2 dodge bonus to Armor Class. You choose which attacks to use this way. The Dodge bonus applies until the beginning of your next round. The maximum dodge bonus you can get this way is +4.

Special: Abilities that lets you attack several opponents as one attack (such as Whirlwind Attack) only count as one attack for the purpose of this feat. You cannot use the extra attacks granted by Cleave or attacks of opportunity to improve your armor class.

Notes: If you have extra attacks for any reason, such as due to haste, a weapon of speed, or various other magics, feats or tactics, those can now be used for defense. You must be able to make those attacks as a part of whatever type of action you are performing for the round, and incur all penalties associated with the multiple attacks you are using, such as those outlined under Two-Weapon Fighting or Flurry of Blows.

Balance: 3.76 (Purp 4.30, Pow 3.60, Port 4.30, Comp 3.30, Rule 3.30)

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all Reflex saving throws.

Balance: 4.95 (Purp 5.00, Pow 4.75, Port 5.00, Comp 5.00, Rule 5.00)

Lingering Damage[edit]

Epic, Stealth

Wounds from your sneak attacks continue to bleed.

Prerequisite: Sneak attack 8d6, Crippling strike class feature

Benefit: Any time you deal damage with a sneak attack, that target takes damage equal to your sneak attack bonus damage on your next turn as well.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Balance: 3.75 (Purp 4.00, Pow 3.25, Port 3.75, Comp 3.75, Rule 4.00)

Linguistic Savant[edit]

General

You are talented at learning languages.

Benefit: You may speak two new languages that are available for you to learn. If you are not illiterate, you can also read and write in these languages. In addition, Speak Language is always considered a class skill for you.

Linked Resistance[edit]

Special

When touching your familiar you can benefit from its Spell Resistance (SR).

Prerequisite: Familiar with SR.

Benefit: As a standard action when touching your familiar you can share in your familiar's SR until your next action.

Normal: SR cannot normally be shared between creatures.

Notes: At the sole discretion of your DM, this feat may be extended for use with a special mount, special companion, fiendish servant or even to a psicrystal that grants Power Resistance.

Balance: 4.26 (Purp 4.33, Pow 4.33, Port 4.33, Comp 4.33, Rule 4.00)

Local Enemy Offensive Training[edit]

Regional

You have been trained to fight aggressively against the tactics of a regional enemy.

Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +1, Region has local enemy

Benefit: You gain a +1 bonus on attack rolls versus your local enemy. This stacks with any racial bonuses you may have against similar creatures.

Notes: This is a regional ability comparable to a dwarf's or gnome's specialized racial training. Consult with your DM to see if this feat is available for your character's region.

Balance: 3.32 (Purp 2.60, Pow 3.60, Port 3.60, Comp 3.20, Rule 3.60)

Look Harmless[edit]

General, Role Play

You have a knack for looking harmless, enabling you to avoid unwanted attention and potentially surprise your enemies.

Prerequisite: Bluff 4 ranks

Benefit: To use this feat you must have no visible weapons or threatening magic items. As long as you are acting in a non-threatening manner, you can make a Bluff check opposed by a Sense Motive by anyone you wish to fool. Anyone failing to beat your roll will direct their attention and attacks to someone else (at the DM’s discretion). If you initiate combat against someone who has been fooled in this way you automatically catch your opponent flat-footed for 1 round.

Special: This feat will not work against creatures with Intelligence under 3 or a creature that would consider anyone, or anyone of your race to automatically be dangerous or untrustworthy.

Lungs Of Steel[edit]

General, Trait

Through arduous training or birth, you have maximized your ability to hold your breath and thus resist poisonous gas.

Benefit: You are able to hold your breath as if your Constitution score was 4 points higher (see Drowning in the SRD under Water Dangers in The Environment). Furthermore, you get a +2 circumstance bonus to all saving throws versus gas attacks (such as Cloudkill and Ungol Dust).

Special: You may only take this feat at character creation.

Magebane[edit]

General

You are better able to resist arcane magics than normal.

Prerequisite: Must not have a level in any class that offers arcane spellcasting

Benefit: You get a +2 bonus on all saving throws to resist arcane spells and spell-like abilities of creatures with arcane caster levels.

Copyright 2005, Jason D. Kemp

Balance: 4.08 (Purp 4.00, Pow 4.00, Port 4.20, Comp 4.00, Rule 4.20)

Magic Secret[edit]

Magical

Your magic is tied to a secret, making your spells harder to dispel.

Benefit: Because all of your magic is tied to a secret, those not knowing this secret find it harder to unravel your spells. The difficulty of any dispel check against your spells is 15 + your caster level instead of the normal 10 + caster level. However, anyone who knows your magical secret will automatically succeed in any dispel check against your magic.

Special: The effects of your spells are not changed in any way. The feat affects all of your spells from the moment you learn it; you cannot avoid using it.

Notes: A magical secret can be most anything, but it must be something that is possible to figure out. A secret name, your birthday, the name of your mentor or patron, the fact that you are of a strange race or parentage, your gender (or lack thereof), the true color of your hair; all are possible spell secrets. A creature can find out that you have this feat with a Spellcraft roll of DC 20 against one of your spells, or by researching your background and making a Knowledge (Local) skill roll against a DC of 20, or with a Bardic Knowledge roll against a DC of 20. This will not tell them what your exact secret is, however (although an additional Bardic Knowledge roll against a DC of 30 will). If a creature thinks that they know your secret they can concentrate upon it whilst attempting to dispel one of your spells; if they guess correctly they will automatically succeed and know this to be the case.

Magic Sense[edit]

General, Magical

You identify any magical effect you make a Will save against.

Prerequisite: Spellcraft 4 ranks

Benefit: When you make a successful Will save against any magical (or psionic) effect, you learn what the effect would have done to you if you had failed the saving throw.

Normal: A creature that successfully saves against a spell that has no obvious physical effects feels a hostile force or tingle, but cannot deduce the exact nature of the attack.

Magical Beast Companion[edit]

Epic, Wild

You can have magical beasts as animal companions.

Prerequisite: Knowledge (nature) 24 ranks, Wild shape 6/day

Benefit: The following magical beasts are added to the lists of animal companions from which you can select. 1st Level (no adjustment) Stirge Darkmantle 4th Level (-3) Hippogriff Shocker lizard 7th Level (-6) Cockatrice Ankheg Griffon Owlbear Sea cat* 10th Level (-9) Basilisk Digerster Girallon Spider eater 13th Level (-12) Bulette Chimera Remorhaz 16th Level (-15) Gorgon Gray render

Special: Creatures marked with an asterisk are available only in an aquatic environment.

Copyright 2000, System Reference Document

Comments: There seems to be no reason why this feat should require wild shape as a prerequisite apart from to restrict it to Druids; as such it should be removed and the ability to obtain animal companions made the prerequisite as well, which would also remove Wild as a type. The Netbook of Feats team would also prefer some guidelines on how to work out what other monsters could be added to this table at what level, eg HD or CR restrictions. There is also a feeling that this should be a normal, not Epic, feat.

Balance: 4.00 (Purp 3.75, Pow 3.75, Port 4.00, Comp 4.25, Rule 4.25)

Magical Beast Wild Shape[edit]

Epic, Wild

You can wild shape into magical beasts.

Prerequisite: Wis 25, Knowledge (nature) 27 ranks, Wild shape 6/day

Benefit: You can use your normal wild shape ability to take the form of a magical beast. The size limitation is the same as your limitation on animal size. You gains all supernatural abilities of the magical beast whose form you take.

Balance: 4.35 (Purp 4.25, Pow 4.00, Port 4.25, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.75)

Main Gauche[edit]

General, Fighter

Defend with an off-hand weapon

Prerequisite: Two-weapon Fighting

Benefit: If you are using a light off-hand weapon, or even holding a buckler, hat or rolled up cloak in your off hand, you can use your off-hand weapon to defend. It also works with a double weapon. You must make a full-round attack, and you are giving up all off-hand attacks for the round. This gives you a +4 bonus to Armor Class and a -2 penalty to attack.

Special: If you use a buckler this way, you do not get its normal armor bonus.

Notes: Main Gauche means simply 'left hand', but it is often applied to a left-hand parrying dagger and the fighting style that goes with it. The forerunner of modern fencing, it uses an off hand weapon to deflect attacks, but not to attack with. This feat represent the very earliest fencing styles, and is appropriate for an early renaissance campaign.

Balance: 4.20 (Purp 5.00, Pow 4.00, Port 4.00, Comp 4.00, Rule 4.00)

Manual Technique[edit]

General

You reason out locks, knots and slights of hand.

Benefit: You may use your Intelligence modifier in place of your Dexterity modifier on Open Lock, Use Rope and Sleight of Hand checks.

Balance: 3.90 (Purp 3.25, Pow 3.50, Port 4.00, Comp 4.50, Rule 4.25)

Manyshot[edit]

General, Fighter

You can fire two or more arrows in one attack.

Prerequisite: Dex 17, Point Blank Shot, Rapid Shot, Base attack bonus +6

Benefit: As a standard action, you may fire two arrows at a single opponent within 30 feet. Both arrows use the same attack roll (with a –4 penalty) to determine success and deal damage normally (but see Special). For every five points of base attack bonus you have above +6, you may add one additional arrow to this attack, to a maximum of four arrows at a base attack bonus of +16. However, each arrow after the second adds a cumulative –2 penalty on the attack roll (for a total penalty of –6 for three arrows and –8 for four). Damage reduction and other resistances apply separately against each arrow fired.

Special: Regardless of the number of arrows you fire, you apply precision-based damage only once. If you score a critical hit, only the first arrow fired deals critical damage; all others deal regular damage. A fighter may select Manyshot as one of his fighter bonus feats. A 6th-level ranger who has chosen the archery combat style is treated as having Manyshot even if he does not have the prerequisites for it, but only when he is wearing light or no armor.

Martial Weapon Proficiency[edit]

General, Fighter

Choose a type of martial weapon. You understand how to use that type of martial weapon in combat.

Benefit: You make attack rolls with the selected weapon normally.

Normal: When using a weapon with which you are not proficient, you take a –4 penalty on attack rolls.

Special: Barbarians, fighters, paladins, and rangers are proficient with all martial weapons. They need not select this feat. You can gain Martial Weapon Proficiency multiple times. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new type of weapon. A cleric who chooses the War domain automatically gains the Martial Weapon Proficiency feat related to his deity’s favored weapon as a bonus feat, if the weapon is a martial one. He need not select it.
