Crunch: New feats

July 22, 2009

Below you’ll find a few new feats that are useful, not in combat, but in skill use! The original idea was to associate them with a specific class, but I’ve dropped that idea, at least for now.

 

Teacher

You are a particular good at teaching others.

Benefit: Whenever you use the Aid Another option (skills only), you give the receiver a +4 bonus instead of the normal +2 bonus. You can only use this feat with your class skills. Your bonus becomes a +6 bonus if you have Skill Focus.

 

Natural Leader

You know how to best use the resources of your friends and allies.

Prerequisite: Cha 12

Benefit: When making a skill check, you gain a bonus equal to the number of friends within 30 ft. Your friends cannot take other actions in this round as they assist you in your efforts. You can use this feat a number of times per day equal to your Charisma modifier.

 

Designer’s Notes: For the latter feat, I realise that you could just as easily use the Aid Another option, but then again, that particular option requires a check, and this feat eliminates that check. Say you have 5 friends, that would give you a +5 bonus to a specific skill check.

The Design Blog is back!

July 21, 2009

I’ve neglected the Design Blog lately, well for a very long time actually. Mostly because I started to work on the first products from Headless Hydra Games.

But now the Design Blog is back!

If you are looking for updates on upcoming products, you need to go to Headless Hydra Games blog (link can be found in the sidebar to your right).

In the coming days and weeks, I’m going to present a few magic items, feats, and spells for the setting, but remember, these are just thoughts and may change before being released.

You should feel free to comment on my design choices and if you can help me make these crunchy bits even better, don’t hold back!
