Feats and Talents

Ability Focus (General)Globe4.2.bmp

Choose one of your class or racial abilities that requires a saving throw. This ability becomes more potent than normal.
Prerequisite: Special ability that requires a saving throw.
Benefit: Add a +2 bonus to the Difficulty Class for all saving throws against the special ability on which the character focuses.
Special: A character can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time the character takes the feat, it applies to a different special ability.

Accompaniment (General)

You increase your spellsongs’ resistance to silence by also playing an instrument.
Prerequisite: Ability to cast spellsongs.
Benefit: By using a musical instrument as a focus for your spellsongs, you create spellsongs that overpower magical silence – the casting of spellsongs and their continuing effects are not suppressed by silence.

Aerial Balance (General)

You are skilled at maintaining and regaining your feet during the worst conditions while airborne.
Benefit: You receive a +4 bonus to any Balance (or Profession (Air Sailor)) skill check made to keep your feet as a result of extreme aerial maneuvers or the effects of attack aboard an airship.

Aerial Command (General)

You know airships inside and out and are able to get the most from your crew.
Prerequisite: Profession (Air Sailor) 10 ranks
Benefit: This feat is only effective when taken by a ship’s Captain or Lieutenant. While you are on the deck, your crew receives a +2 morale bonus to any skill checks directly related to the piloting, navigation, or general operation of the airship. This bonus does not apply to attack or damage rolls made by airship weapons crews, but does apply to any skill checks made during ramming attempts. Only one officer on a given ship may use this feat at a single time. This bonus stacks with the standard Captain bonus.

Aerial Tactics (General)

You are skilled at knowing when and where to attack airships and are able to guide others.
Prerequisites: Base attack bonus +5, Weapon Proficiency (Airships)
Benefit: You are able to direct a number of airship weapons crews equal to one-half your level if they are within earshot. During each round in which you spend a full-round action coordinating these attacks, every attack made by the weapons crews under your direction receives a +2 insight bonus to attack and damage rolls. This feat can be employed by several characters at once, but it must be directed at different weapons crews. This bonus stacks with the standard Captain bonus.

Affinity With Skill (Talent)

You have an innate talent with a particular skill.
Prerequisite: Character level 1st only
Benefit: The character gains a +4 inherent bonus to a chosen skill.

Aid Spellcasting (General)

You add your knowledge and power to the casting of an ally’s spell.
Prerequisites: Ability to cast spells, Intelligence 15, Charisma 15
Benefit: As a standard action, similar to aid another, the character makes a Concentration check to help another spell caster cast a spell. If she exceeds a Difficulty Class of 10 + the level of the spell being cast, she adds +1 to either the spell’s Difficulty Class or to its caster level (characters choice).
Additional casters with this feat can also make attempts to add to the spell, but the most that can be added to the Difficulty Class or the caster level is a total equal to the level of the spell being cast.

Ambidexterity (Talent)

You can use your right and left hands equally well.
Prerequisites: Dexterity 15, character level 1st only
Benefit: The character ignores all penalties for using an off hand. She is neither left handed nor right handed.
Normal: Without this talent, a character using her off hand suffers a -4 penalty to attack rolls, ability checks, and skill checks. For example, a right-handed character wielding a weapon with her left hand suffers a -4 penalty to attack rolls with that weapon.

Amplify Song (Forte) (General)

You increase your spellsong’s range with your skill in music.
Prerequisite: Ability to cast spellsongs.
Benefit: You increase the range of any nonpersonal or nontouch spellsong. To accomplish this, you must make a Perform (sing) check. The Difficulty Class is based on the desired amount of range increase, as well as the spellsong type.
DC 15: Increase spellnote range by 50 percent.
DC 18: Increase spellchord range by 50 percent.
DC 20: Increase spellnote range by 100 percent.
DC 23: Increase spellmelody range by 50 percent.
DC 25: Increase spellchord range by 100 percent.
DC 28: Increase spellmelody range by 100 percent.
You must choose the desired result before you make this check, which is a free action that draws no attack of opportunity. This feat cannot be used to affect the same spellsong that a similar feat, already affects.

Armor Proficiency, Exotic (General)

You can use exotic armor.
Benefit: The character can wear exotic armor without penalty. To use exotic armor, the character must have the appropriate normal proficiency (light, medium, or heavy) for that type of armor.
Normal: A character wearing armor with which she is not proficient suffers its armor check penalty on attack rolls and on all skill checks that involve moving, Including Ride.

Armor Proficiency, Heavy (General)

You can use heavy armor.
Prerequisites: Armor Proficiency (Light) and (Medium)
Benefits: See Armor Proficiency (Light)
Normal: See Armor Proficiency (Light)

Armor Proficiency, Light (General)

You can use light armor.
Benefit: While wearing a type of armor the character is proficient with, the armor check penalty applies only to Balance, Climb, Escape Artist, Jump, Sleight of Hand, Sneak, and Tumble checks.
Normal: A character wearing armor with which she is not proficient also suffers its armor check penalty on attack rolls and all skill checks that involve moving, including Ride.

Armor Proficiency, Medium (General)

You can use medium armor.
Prerequisite: Armor Proficiency (Light)
Benefit: See Armor Proficiency (Light)
Normal: See Armor Proficiency (Light)

Attune to Magical Item (Ceremonial)

After a ceremony held with you and at least three other spellcasters in a closed area filled with herbal smoke, you gain the ability to understand the powers of magical items that you study.
Prerequisite: Wisdom 13, truename
Benefit: After studying a magic item carefully for one minute, the character makes a caster power check with a Difficulty Class of 11 + the item’s caster level. If successful, she learns one random function of a magic item, as well as how to activate it. Instead of taking a minute, she can attempt to attune as a full-round action, but the Difficulty Class increases by +10. A character cannot learn multiple functions with this ability – she must use object loresight or analyze to do that. Once one has tried to attune to an item, whether successful or not, she cannot try again with the same item. There is no limit to how many items a character can attempt to attune to.

Battle Mage (Ceremonial)

After a ceremony involving you and at least six warriors, you gain special benefits with war magic.
Prerequisite: Truename
Benefit: A character with this feat may apply the war template to her spells. Further, she gains a +2 competence bonus on all Concentration checks made to cast a spell defensively.

Bite (General)

Although most civilized men have lost the skill to use their sharp teeth in combat, you can use yours as terrible weapons.
Prerequisite: A race with powerful jaws and sharp teeth (eg. dracha, litorian, mojh or sibeccai).
Benefit: The character is proficient with using bite attacks in combat and, unless gagged or muzzled, is always considered armed (the bite is considered a light weapon). The character inflicts damage based on her size, as follows:

  • Diminutive/Fine: 1d2 + Strength bonus
  • Tiny: 1d3 + Strength bonus
  • Small: 1d4 + Strength bonus
  • Medium: 1d6 + Strength bonus
  • Large: 2d4 + Strength bonus
  • Huge: 2d6 + Strength bonus
  • Gargantuan: 2d8 + Strength bonus
  • Colossal: 2d10 + Strength bonus
    When a character takes a feat requiring her to specify a weapon (such as the Weapon Focus feat), she can choose “bite.”
    If a character uses a weapon (or unarmed attack) in the same round as the bite attack, both the bite and the other attack suffer a -2 penalty.
    A character fighting with a weapon in each hand (or with a double weapon) can make a bite attack, but all attacks suffer a -4 penalty in addition to normal two-weapon fighting penalties the character might incur. The feats Ambidexterity and Two-Weapon Fighting do not modify the penalties associated with the Bite feat.
    Monsters with bite attacks do not need this feat.
    Improved: Characters with a base attack of +15 or higher can take this feat a second time. They gain a +2 attack bonus with their bite and can inflict damage as though one size category larger than normal.

Blessed Mage (Ceremonial)

After a ritual involving a daylong invocation to angelic spirits, you gain special benefits with blessed magic.
Prerequisite: Truename
Benefit: A character with this feat may apply the blessed template to her spells. Further, she casts any spell that cures hit point damage at +1 caster level.

Blood as Power (Ceremonial)

As the result of a ceremony involving you and at least six other spellcasters, you can use your own blood to power your spells.
Prerequisites: Spellcaster level 1st, Wisdom 17, truename
Benefit: Characters with this feat can cut themselves as a somatic component added to a spell. After dealing themselves 6 points of damage per spell level (3 points for 0-level spells), they can cast a spell they know without losing the spell slot. Characters can use this feat as long as they have the hit points to sacrifice.

Bloody Strike (General)

You know how to inflict wounds that prove particularly troubling to your opponents.
Prerequisite: Base attack bonus +5
Benefit: A character must wield a slashing or piercing weapon to use this feat. As a full-attack action, the character can make a single attack roll that inflicts normal damage. If she damages her opponent he must make a Fortitude saving throw (DC 10 + half her level + her Wisdom bonus). Should the opponent fail the save, he bleeds profusely, losing 1 hit point per round until he receives magical healing of any kind, someone performs a Heal check (DC 15) upon him, or he makes a successful save (the second save attempt requires a full-round action as he staunches or nurses the wounds himself).

Bonded Item (Ceremonial)

A ceremony involving you and a particular item as the central figures ties you magically to the item.
Prerequisite: Truename
Benefit: Any time you use the bonded item in its straightforward function, you gain a +1 luck bonus for the attempt. For example, if it is a weapon, you gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls with it. If it is a harness of armor or a shield, you enjoy a +1 bonus to Armor Class. If it is a lockpick, you gain a +1 bonus to use it.
If the item is lost or destroyed, you must go through the ceremony again to bond with a new item (but you do not need to take the feat again).

Born Hero (Talent)

You always seem to be in the right place at the right time to commit a heroic act.
Prerequisite: May only be selected at 1st level.
Benefit: The character begins the game with 1 hero point.
Special: The DM should be generous in awarding this character hero points.

Born Leader (Talent)

People seem to take to you and are willing to do what you say.
Prerequisite: May only be selected at 1st level.
Benefit: The character gains a +4 bonus to Diplomacy checks when trying to convince someone to do something. Further, people who are indifferent or friendly toward the character are more likely to trust her than they are to trust someone else they are indifferent or friendly toward. For example, say a Born Leader and another character both meet a verrik witch at the same time. When the witch asks for advice, he will believe the Born Leader over the other character.
Lastly, characters with this talent enjoy a +1 bonus to the Difficulty Class of compulsion spells they cast. This includes spell-like abilities that are compulsions, such as the mind witch’s word of command class ability.

Born to the Blade (Mage Blade, Talent)

From a young age you showed an aptitude for the mage blade’s unique version of magic. You have an almost instinctual sense for the specific motions required to cast spells through an athame, and you enjoy a primal, empathic connection.
Prerequisite: Character level 1st only.
Benefit: You were born to become a mage blade. In your hands, an athame is an extension of your body. Your blade is always ready for a battle, and you can sense its keening thirst as combat draws near. By the same token, your deep connection to the weapon allows you to channel and control spells with greater ability than normal. You gain a +2 bonus on initiative and a +1 bonus on the Difficulty Class of all spells you cast with your athame’s assistance.

Brandish Magical Might (Ceremonial)

After a ceremony held with you and at least six other spellcasters, you can use your magical power in new ways.
Prerequisites: Spellcaster level 3rd, truename, one of the following: Charisma 17, Intelligence 17, or Wisdom 17
Benefit: A character may use her knowledge of magic and the power inherent within her to accomplish tasks with a cast power check, such as force open a sealed door or counter a spell.
To counter a spell, the character must ready an action. When someone else casts a spell within sight, the character makes an opposed caster power check. (In a caster power check, a character gets to add her spellcasting ability score modifier to the roll, as well as her level.) If she succeeds, she counters the spell, ruining it, and the countered caster loses the spell slot.. If the character fails the power check, resolve the spell normally. A character cannot counter a complex spell of a level at which she only has access to simple spells. She cannot counter an exotic spell unless she knows the same exotic spell. (A Spellcraft check [DC 15 + spell level] allows her to identify the spell ahead of time.) Countering a spell does not cost the character any spell slots of her own.
Once per day per two caster levels, the character can try to overcome a creature’s spell resistance by making a caster power check rather than the normal caster level check.

Galahad_s_Ghost.jpg

Chi-Julud (Ceremonial)

In a ritual involving you and seven other giants, you learn the ability of the Wardance.
Prerequisites: Must be a giant, Wisdom 13, Charisma 13, truename.
Benefit: The character takes a full round of concentration (Concentration check, DC 15) to turn everything peaceful and caring in her into a raw, warlike savagery. After this round, the character loses her Wisdom and Charisma modifiers (if positive), and her scores in both become 10 (if they were higher). Her former Wisdom bonus now adds to her Strength bonus (stacking with any other bonuses), and her former Charisma bonus adds to her Constitution bonus (stacking with any other bonuses).
These extra bonuses last as long as the character wishes, but if Chi-Julud persists longer than 10 minutes, she suffers 1 point of temporary Wisdom and Charisma damage. Each full hour of Chi-Julud afterward, she suffers another point of Wisdom and Charisma damage during the first day. After that, if she is somehow still going (through use of magic), every day she suffers 1d4 points of temporary Wisdom and Charisma damage until she reverts back to her normal state of Si-Karan (Caretaker).
During the time this feat is in effect, anything that normally would add to the character’s Wisdom bonus adds to Strength instead, and anything that would add to Charisma adds to Constitution instead, even if the bonuses would not normally stack. For example, if someone casts a lesser ability boost on the character to give a +2 enhancement bonus to Strength and Wisdom, she instead gains a +4 bonus to Strength. These bonuses do not stack with further enhancement bonuses, such as from a belt of strength or a periapt of wisdom.

Cleave (General)

You can cut through one foe to strike another foe.
Prerequisites: Strength 13, Power Attack
Benefit: A character who deals a creature enough damage to make it fall (typically by dropping it to below 0 hit points, killing it, etc.) gets an immediate extra melee attack against another creature in the immediate vicinity. The character cannot take a 5-foot step before making this extra attack. She makes the extra attack with the same weapon and at the same bonus as the one that dropped the previous creature. A character can use this ability once per round.
Improved: Characters with a base attack of +4 or higher can take this feat a second time and can use it an unlimited number of times per round.

Combat Casting (General)

You are adept at casting spells in combat.
Benefit: You get a +4 bonus on Concentration checks made to cast a spell or use a spell-like ability while on the defensive or while you are grappling or pinned.

Combat Reflexes (General)

You can make many rapid attacks, if your foes give you the right openings.
Benefit: When foes leave themselves open, the character may make a number of additional attacks of opportunity equal to her Dexterity modifier. She still may make only one attack of opportunity per provocation or type of provocation. For example, a character can make two attacks of opportunity against a foe who drinks a potion in an area the character threatens and then moves out of that area on the same round (with a move greater than a 5-foot step). The character cannot make two attacks of opportunity against a foe that moves through multiple threatened areas.
The character also may make attacks of opportunity while flat-footed.

Compensate for Size (General)

You leap up and around when fighting a larger foe, compensating for your small size.
Prerequisite: Dexterity 13
Benefit: The character leaps about when fighting a creature one size (or more) larger than she is, granting her an additional +1 dodge bonus to Armor Class and a +1 competence bonus to melee attack rolls per size category difference. To use this feat, the character must wear either light armor or no armor.

Complex Spell (General)

Because of your extensive magical training, you can cast some complex spells.
Prerequisites: Spellcaster level 1st, Intelligence 11, Spellcraft (4 ranks)
Benefit: The character has access to the complex spells of a given level and may choose from them when she gets an opportunity to learn new spells. She chooses the spell level upon taking this feat.
Special: A character can take this feat multiple times. Each time, she chooses a new spell level.

Conjure Mastery (General)

You learn how to get more powerful creatures when you cast conjuration spells.
Prerequisites: Spellcaster level 7th, Charisma 17
Benefit: Creatures the character calls, summons, or creates are above average physically. They have a +2 bonus to Strength, Constitution, and Dexterity.
Improved: A spellcaster of 17th level or higher can take this feat a second time and add an extra +4 bonus to the conjured creature’s Strength, Constitution, and Dexterity.

Corrupt Mage (Ceremonial)

After a ritual involving a daylong invocation to evil spirits, you gain special abilities with negative energy spells.
Prerequisite: Truename
Benefit: A character with this feat may apply the corrupted template to her spells. Further, if normally she can access only simple spells of a given level, she may treat any complex spell of that level with the negative energy descriptor as a simple spell. If she normally can access complex spells of a given level, she may treat any exotic spell of that level with the negative energy descriptor as a complex spell.

Craft Charged Item (Item Creation)

With the right materials, prerequisites, time, and money, you can make magical items that contain charges, such as wands.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 5th
Benefit: A character with this feat can create any item that stores a spell that the item’s owner can use set number of times, as long as she meets the item’s prerequisites – usually, as long as the item is based on any spell she can cast. Charged items are usually spell-trigger items, such as wands (spell-trigger items can be used only by someone who normally can access the stored spell). Crafting a charged item takes one day for each 1,000 gp of its base price. When the character creates the item, she sets its caster level. The caster level must be sufficient for her to cast the spell in question and no higher than the character’s own level. To craft a charged item, she must spend 1/25 of its base price as an XP cost and use up raw materials costing half its base price.
To determine the base price of a charged item, multiply the caster level by the spell level, then by the magic item creation modifier listed in the spell’s description, if any. Multiply the result by 750 gp, unless the item is not a spell-trigger item (such as a ring of three wishes), in which case you should multiply the result by 850 gp.
Some items incur extra costs in special material components, as noted in the spell descriptions. Allow for these costs in addition to those derived from the item’s base price.
A standard, newly created charged item contains 50 charges.

Craft Constant Item (Item Creation)

With the right materials, prerequisites, time and money you can make magical items such as rings.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 12th
Benefit: As long as she meets the item’s prerequisites (usually that the item is based on a spell she can cast), a character with this feat can create any magic item of the following types:

  • One whose powers are constant (like a ring of protection +1);
  • One whose powers last until “turned off” (like a ring of invisibility);
  • One whose powers can be accessed at will, with no limits based on uses per day or charges (like a pair of shoes that allow free use of the teleport spell); or
  • One whose powers can be accessed a certain number of times per day (like a sword that allows the wielder to cast lesser battle healing on herself once per day).
    Crafting a constant item takes one day for each 1,000 gp of its base price. When the character creates the item, she sets its caster level. The caster level must be sufficient for her to cast the spell in question and no higher than the character’s own level. To craft a constant item, she must spend 1/25 of its base price as an XP cost and use up raw materials costing half of its base price.
    To determine the base price of a constant item, multiply the caster level by the spell level, then by the magic item creation modifier listed in the spell’s description, if any. Multiply the result by 2,000gp, unless the item is limited by uses per day, in which case multiply by the following instead:
  • More than 5 uses per day = 2,000 gp
  • 4 uses per day = 1,600 gp
  • 3 uses per day = 1,200 gp
  • 2 uses per day = 800 gp
  • 1 use per day = 400 gp
    Some items incur extra costs in special material components, as noted in the spell descriptions. Allow for these costs in addition to those derived from the item’s base price.
    A character with this feat also can men a broken constant item, it it is one that she could make. Mending costs half the item’s XP cost, uses half its raw materials, and requires half the time it would take to craft the item in the first place.

Craft Fey Dusts (Item Creation)

You have the ability to use magic sand harvested from the Sands of Time to create magical dusts.
Prerequisite: Fey magic, Spellcaster level 4th+
Benefit: You can create fey dusts of any spell of 5th level or lower that you know and that targets a creature or creatures. Crafting a fey dust takes 1 day for each 1’000 gp in the price of its magical features or 2 days, whichever is longer. When you create a dust, you set the caster level. The caster level must be sufficient to cast the spell in question and no higher than your own level. The base price of the fey dust is its spell level multiplied by its caster level multiplied by 50 gp. To craft a fey dust, you must spend 1/25 of this base price in XP and use up raw components costing half this base price.
When you create a fey dust, you make any choices that you would normally make when casting the spell. Whoever the dust is sprinkled onto or envelopes in a cloud effect is the target of the spell.
Any fey dust 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 fey dust.

Craft Magic Arms and Armor (Item Creation)

With the right materials, prerequisites, time and money you can make magical weapons and armor.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 5th
Benefit: A character with this feat can create any magic weapon, armor or shield whose prerequisites she meets. Enhancing a weapon, suit of armor or shield takes one day for each 1,000 gp of the price of its magical features. To enhance a weapon, suit of armor or shield the character must spend 1/25 of its features’ total price as an XP cost and use up raw materials costing half of this total price.
Creators use this feat to grant enhancement bonuses to weapons, shields and armor. Weapon enhancement bonuses add to attack and damage rolls, while shield and armor enhancement bonuses add to Armor Class. The character also can add special abilities to a weapon, shield or suit of armor most of which have a “bonus equivalent” for determining price. For example, the keen special ability has the equivalent of a + 1 bonus. To give a weapon, shield or armor a special ability it must also have at least a + 1 enhancement bonus.
To create a magic weapon, shield or suit of armor the creator must have a caster level at least three times the enhancement bonus given to the item. Thus, to create a +3 longspear, the creator’s caster level must be at least 9th. This is true of special abilities with bonus equivalents as well. So, to give a shield the cold resistance special ability, which is the equivalent of a +3 bonus (and must be given to a weapon with at least a +1 enhancement bonus, for a total bonus of +4), the creator must be at least 12th level.
The character also can mend a broken magic weapon, suit of armor or shield if it is one that she could craft. Mending costs half the item’s XP cost, uses half its raw materials and requires half the time it would take to enhance the item in the first place.
The weapon, armor or shield to be enhanced must be a masterwork item the character provides. (Its cost is not included in the above cost.)

Craft Single-Use Item (Item Creation)

With the right materials, prerequisites, time and money you can make magical items like potions.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 3rd
Benefit: A character with this feat can create a magic item that has a single use – such as a potion, a pinch of magical powder or a glass ball meant to release a spell when it shatters – based on any spell she can cast. Creating the item takes one day. When the character creates the item, she sets its caster level. The caster level must be sufficient for her to cast the spell in question and no higher than the character’s own level. To create the single-use item, she must spend 1/25 of this base price as an XP cost and use up raw materials costing half this base price.
To determine the base price of a single-use item, multiply the caster level by the spell level, then by the magic item creation modifier in the spell’s description, if any. Multiple the result by 50 gp.
Any item 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, when creating the item, the character must expend the material component or pay the experience points.
Single-use items can be used by any character, but they always require some physical action such as drinking a potion, breaking a seal or rubbing on a salve. Performing the action provokes an attack of opportunity. When the item is created, the creator usually makes all the choices about the parameters of the spell (the target is the person drinking the potion and so on) but if she wishes, and is willing to double the cost involved she can leave some of these up to the end user (allowing the creation of a charm that, when rubbed, allows the user to cast distraction on anyone he wishes within range).

Craft Spell-Completion Item (Item Creation)

With the right materials, prerequisites, time and money you can make magical items like scrolls.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 1st
Benefit: Someone with this feat can create a spell-completion item (such as a scroll) based on any spell she can cast. Spell-completion items are those that require the user to be able to cast the spell they store. In effect, the stored spell is mostly cast already – the user simply finishes it. Creating the item takes one day for each 1,000 gp of its base price. When the character creates the item, she sets its caster level. The caster level must be sufficient for her to cast the spell in question and no higher than the caster’s own level. To create the spell-completion item, she must spend 1/25 of this base price as an XP cost and use up raw materials costing half of this base price.
To determine the base price of a spell completion item, multiply the caster level by the spell level, then by the magic item creation modifier listed in the spell’s description, if any. Multiply the result by 25 gp.
Any spell-completion item 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, when creating the item, the character must expend the material component or pay the experience points.

Creator Mage (Ceremonial)

Once you complete a ceremony involving you and at least one other spellcaster, you can make your spells permanent or programmed.
Prerequisite: Spellcaster level 9th, Intelligence 17, truename
Benefit: A character with this feat may apply the permanent or the programmed template to her spells. The creator mage can have a number of spells affected by this template in effect at a time equal to her Intelligence bonus (minimum 1).

Crippling Strike (Ceremonial)

As the result of a ceremony involving you and at least five others, your attacks slice through muscle and tendons.
Prerequisites: Sneak attack, Intelligence 17, truename
Benefit: When the character damages an opponent with a sneak attack (or the First Strike feat), the target also takes 1 point of temporary Strength damage.

River_Quarter.jpg

Defensive (Talent)

You are cautious and careful, always more mindful of incoming attacks than making attacks of your own.
Prerequisite: Character level 1st only
Benefit: The character gains a +1 dodge bonus to Armor Class to all attacks but suffers an inherent -1 penalty to all attack rolls.
Special: A condition that makes the character lose her Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes her lose dodge bonuses. The character must be aware of the attack to gain this bonus. Also, dodge bonuses stack with each other, unlike most other types of bonuses.

Defensive Move (General)

You are trained at avoiding ranged attacks by moving or ducking.
Prerequisite: Dexterity 13
Benefit: The character gains a +4 dodge bonus to Armor Class against all ranged attacks in a round in which she moves at least 10 feet, or in any circumstance where she has cover. The Precise Shot feat can negate this Armor Class bonus, but it cannot negate both this bonus and the -4 penalty for firing into melee in a single attack. Thus, a character with this feat fighting in melee against an attacker with Precise Shot forces the opponent to cope with the +4 dodge bonus but not the -4 penalty.
Special: A condition that makes the character lose her Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes her lose dodge bonuses. The character must be aware of the attack to gain this bonus. Also, dodge bonuses stack with each other, unlike most other types of bonuses.

Defensive Roll (Ceremonial)

After a ceremony held with you and at least five others, you gain a special quickness that sometimes allows you to avoid dangerous blows.
Prerequisite: Wisdom 13, truename
Benefit: Once per day, when the character would be reduced to 0 hit points or less by damage in combat (from a weapon or other blow, not a spell or special ability), she can attempt to roll with the damage. If the character succeeds at a Reflex saving throw (DC = damage dealt), she takes only half damage from the blow. She must be aware of the attack and able to react to it in order to execute the Defensive Roll – if her Dexterity bonus to Armor Class is denied, she can’t roll. Since this effect normally would not allow a character to make a Reflex save for half damage, the evasion ability does not apply to the Defensive Roll.

Defensive Stance (General)

You are trained at avoiding and blocking blows.
Prerequisite: Dexterity 13
Benefit: The character gains a +1 dodge bonus to Armor Class against all melee attacks.
Special: A condition that makes the character lose her Dexterity bonus to Armor Class (if any) also makes her lose dodge bonuses. The character must be aware of the attack to gain this bonus. Also, dodge bonuses stack with each other, unlike most other types of bonuses.

Devout Faith (Blessed)

You take religious beliefs very seriously – and gain blessings for your devotion.
Prerequisite: GM approval
Benefit: No more than once per day, for up to 10 rounds, you gain the effects of a bless spell (+1 to attack bonus and saving throws against fear) – but only when your deity chooses to bestow the blessing upon you. Thus, activating this feat requires no action on your part, but you cannot know when and if the feat comes into play (the GM decides). The will of gods is difficult to fathom, and should never be questioned, at least not by the faithful.
Special: You can gain this feat only if the GM decides that your character truly obeys the teachings and tenets of her faith, and if her patron deity approves of her actions. If this changes at any time, you lose the benefits of this feat and feats for which it is a prerequisite.

Dragon Mage (General)

After a ceremony involving you and a dragon you gain special benefits when using magic normally limited to dragons.

Dream Speaking (General)

Sometimes dreams are important missives sent from above, or from within. You can interpret the dreams that you have, or that others have.
Prerequisite: Wisdom 15
Benefit: When someone tells you about a dream, or when you consider your own dream, you can tell automatically if it was a dream of importance, or a sending dream. If it was a sending dream, you can attempt a Wisdom check (DC 15) to interpret its meaning. If your Wisdom check succeeds, the GM should give you some clue as to the meaning of the dream.
For example, a character might dream of a threatening rider dressed in black, surrounded by ravens. On a successful Wisdom check, the player learns that the dream foretells an encounter with a foe named “raven”. Later the party does indeed go up against a villains named Kevris Killraven. Retries are not allowed.

Benefit: Use of the Fey Magic feat allows a spellcaster to substitute the use of magic sand from the Sands of Time as spell components to bolster their spells. This also adds one to each die rolled for the spell effect.

Unarmed Strike, Mighty (General)

You are skilled with powerful unarmed attacks.

Vatic Sight (General)

You can call upon the powers that be in the universe to grant you visions or dreams.
Prerequisite: Caster level 1st, Wisdom 13
Benefit: You can choose a general topic about which to have an informative dream while you sleep or a vision while you are in a trance. Topics can include an individual, a place, an object, a group, and so on.
For example, you might choose as a topic: ’Anwen’s orrery’, ‘The city of Ishtaduk’, ‘the elves of the oceans’, or ‘this ring I’ve found’. But asking a specific question, such as “How do I get into the palace vault?” is too specific, as is the question “Do these people mean me harm?”
To succeed, you must make a Concentration check with a Difficulty Class set by the GM depending on the topic. In general, the simplest topics have DC 20 and the most obscure, complex or forbidden topics have DC 40 with most others falling somewhere in between.
As with all dreams and visions, the GM remains in complete control of the actual details and the images presented. Sometimes they may seem difficult to interpret. Other times, the information on the topic might not pertain directly to any matter at hand. The dream might tell you about the Seelie’s distant past rather than their disposition toward you, for example.
Visions require at least an hour of meditative trance (whether successful or not) and dreams require at least an hour of sleep (whether successful or not). You cannot attempt to use this feat more than once per day, nor more than three times per week.

Vivify Song (Maestoso) (General)

You increase your spellsong’s potency with your skill in music.

DC 25: Increase spellnote DC by +2.
DC 28: Increase spellmelody DC by +1.

DC 45: Increase spellmelody DC by +3.
You must choose the desired result before you make this check, which is a free action that draws no attack of opportunity. This feat cannot be used to affect the same spellsong that a similar feat, already affects.

Types of Feat

Blessed Feats

Blessed feats are supernatural abilities gained by earning favor in the eyes of a god. Some blessed feats require your character to take a vow involving specific actions you must do or avoid. Others require the ability to turn undead, allowing the character to use a turn attempt to achieve a different effect.

Ceremonial Feats

A ceremonial feat is one a character gains as the direct result of participating in a ritual of power. Most characters get a ceremonial feat for free at 1st level as part of their naming ceremony, a ritual usually held during a character’s adolescence. At this ceremony the character learns her truename in a vision. Only characters with truenames can take ceremonial feats (except in the case of bonus feats).

A character’s truename is the name of her soul. Because it is the key to the lock of her innermost self, most people keep their truenames a secret from all but their closest comrades. Enemy spellcasters can use a character’s truename against her by casting spells against her. Friendly spellcasters can use them to cast beneficial spells more effectively. In fact, sometimes, without a truename, a spell cannot be cast at all. If you’d like more information on truenames, see Monte Cook’s Arcana Evolved (or ask me on the forum).

A character can choose a ceremonial feat whenever she gains a new feat and meets all its prerequisites. However, gaining a ceremonial feat also carries associated costs in money and time.

Ceremonial feats involve a daylong ritual that takes one week to prepare. Necessary supplies and ingredients cost a character 100 gp per level. None of these costs apply to the ceremonial feat gained at 1st level – that ritual took place before the character entered play.

Unlike other feats, ceremonial feats involve magic and grant supernatural abilities. All ceremonial feats are supernatural abilities.

Epic Feats

General Feats

General feats are the most basic sort of feats. Anyone can take a general feat provided they satisfy the prerequisite.

Item Creation Feats

Mage Blade Feats

Mage blade‘s practice a form of magic that is distinguished by its martial focus. While other spellcasters have a variety of incantations to call upon, mage blades focus on spells that can aid them in battle. A mage blade could ready and use benign spells, but her methods of casting center on combining a spell and a blade into one unstoppable combination. This specialized study has led to the development of a variety of unique combat methods and ceremonies known only to mage blades. Several of these abilities further develop a mage blade’s unique talents, such as the shimmering shield class ability.

You must have at least one level in mage blade to select these feats. Mage blade’s may add all mage blade feats to the list of bonus feats they can select as a class feature. If the feat is also a ceremonial feat, the character does not need to go through the ceremony or pay for it; even Unbound characters can gain ceremonial feats in this way.

Metamagic Feats

Talents

These are special feats a character can take only at 1st level. They represent not training, but natural born gifts. Since most people have only one talent (Unbound characters could have two), they can really help to distinguish a character.
