Feat Master (5e Class)
From D&D Wiki
The Feat Master is an incredibly versatile class that makes use of feats to allow you to customize your character to the extreme. This class was made on a whim, just because I wondered what it would be like, it is not intended to be balanced in any way. If you have any suggestions for possible ways to make this class more playable, and possibly even balanced, please post them on the talk page.
Now for the Class
The Feat Master is an incredibly versatile class that cannot be confined to any one specific role due to its nature, and as with all homebrews, you must get your DM's express permission to use the class, especially due to the fact that as the name implies this class relies entirely upon feats to be capable in game. What do I mean by this? This class doesn't really have any real features, it's just a bunch of ASIs that are intended to be used for feats.
Creating a Feat Master
When making a Feat Master you have to be careful, because you start with no proficiencies, therefore a race with inborn proficiencies would be incredibly helpful. Another aspect is that making a spellcaster is quite hard, as you will not have access to high level spells, so a race with inborn spells would be helpful as you won't actually have any spell slots, just one-time use spells.
If your race starts with no proficiencies/offensive spells then the first feat you choose absolutely MUST give you the capability to deal damage.

Master of Learning
You have learned how to re-learn what you already know to expand upon it. Starting at first level you gain the ability to take any feat as many times as you want. The feats will be treated entirely separate from each other.
At first level you are given the option to pick one feat of your choice just so you aren't completely helpless.
Ability Score Improvement
For every level you have in this class, you can increase one ability score of your choice by 2, or you can increase two ability scores of your choice by 1. As normal, you can't increase an ability score above 20 using this feature. Most of these are intended to be used for feats, as pure stats will get you nowhere.
You cannot multiclass into or out of this class.
