Half Feats

From Fax Encyclopedicus

Jump to: navigation, search

Half feats are new expansive character options, designed each to be of less worth than a half of feat but providing more options or subtle bonuses that you wish you could use - just would never be worth to expend a normal feat on. Whenever you obtain a half-feat over a normal feat you gain a second half-feat as well. The bonus half-feat does not provide another half-feat of it's own.

Whenever a class feature or similar effect would offer a specific type of feat, such as a Luck feat by the Fortune's Friends (Complete Scoundrel, pg. 38), you may choose the appropriate half-feat type and then gain any other half-feat of your choice with no restriction of type as long as you meet the requirements of that half-feat.

Luck feats and skill tricks originated from the Complete Scoundrel.
