NEW GENERAL FEAT DESCRIPTIONS

BRUTAL COMBATANT

You fight hard and hit hard. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Strength or Constitution score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You learn one stunt of your choice from those available to the Brutal Fighter. You gain raises the same way as a brutal fighter, but can only spend them on this stunt.

CAVALRY CHARGE

You are trained to mow down the enemy from horseback. You gain the following benefits:

  • If you are mounted and move at least 30 feet and then successfully hit a creature with a weapon that does piercing damage and has the Reach property, you double the damage die of the weapon. So if used with a standard lance, your damage becomes 2d12.

EARTH MAGIC

You have a strong magical connection to the earth. Perhaps it is your heritage, the deity you worship or a magical place or event affected you. You can now channel more earth-based magic into your spells, and your earth magic is more potent. You gain the following benefits:

  • If you cast an existing earth-based spell of 1st level or higher that already does bludgeoning damage, increase the damage by 1 die, once only. If the spell makes multiple attacks, only one damage roll can be increased. This applies to spells with the words earth, rock or stone in their titles, such as erupting earth or 'transmute rock' (both in Xanathar's Guide to Everything). Check with your GM for each spell.
  • When you learn a new spell: you can change some existing spells by adding the earth template to them. This decision is not made at the time of casting, but when you learn new spells. You are essentially creating new spells, so check with your GM before applying the earth template. The earth template can be applied to spells that normally deal cold, fire, lightning, piercing or slashing damage.
  • When you add the earth template to a spell: rename the spell something more appropriate. Instead of cloud of daggers, you learn cloud of pebbles. Cone of cold might become scree spray, etc. This should also indicate what the spell will look like. Change the spell's damage type to bludgeoning and if an area spell. Note that any spells you modify that have ongoing damage lose this feature when you apply the earth template. You can also choose to make the area of the spell difficult terrain, such as a line or cube/circle of upturned earth or strewn with rocks.
  • When you cast a spell with the earth template: for every 5 that a target fails their saving throw by, or for every 5 by which you exceed a target's AC, apply one of the following:

- target is knocked prone.
- target is knocked back 5 feet (can be applied more than once).
- target is dazed (-2 on all checks, saving throws and attacks until the end of its next turn).

EXTRA FIGHTING STYLE

Prerequisite: You must already have access to fighting styles through one of your classes.
You are a versatile combatant that has mastered multiple styles. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Strength or Dexterity score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You gain another fighting style from those available to you.

FIRE MAGIC

You have a strong magical connection to fire. Perhaps it is your heritage, the deity you worship or a magical place or event affected you. You can now channel more fire-based magic into your spells, and your fire magic is more potent. You gain the following benefits:

  • If you cast an existing spell of 1st level or higher that already deals fire damage, increase the damage by 1 die, once only. If the spell makes multiple attacks, only one damage roll can be increased.
  • When you learn a new spell: you can change some existing spells by adding the fire template to them. This decision is not made at the time of casting, but when you learn new spells. You are essentially creating new spells, so check with your GM before applying the fire template. The fire template can be applied to spells that normally deal acid, cold, lightning or slashing damage.
  • When you add the fire template to a spell: rename the spell something more appropriate. Instead of cloud of daggers, you learn cloud of embers. Cone of cold might become cone of fire, etc. This should also indicate what the spell will look like. Change the spell's damage type to fire.
  • When you cast a spell with the fire template: for every 5 that a target fails their saving throw by, or for every 5 by which you exceed a target's AC, apply one of the following:

- target gains 1 level of exhaustion (from burns or breathing in hot air or smoke).
- target is set on fire and takes 1d6 fire damage at the start of each of its turns. The target can make a Dexterity saving throw against the caster's spell DC at the end of each of its turns to stop the ongoing fire damage or can do so automatically by spending their action to put out the flames. This option can be taken multiple times, each time increasing the ongoing fire damage by 1d6.

FLEXIBLE COMBATANT

Fortune favours you. You are able to twist fate a little when you fight. You gain the following benefits:

  • You learn two flexible maneuvers of your choice from those available to the Fortune Fighter.

MULTI-TALENTED

Prerequisite: You must have 3 levels in at least two different classes.
You are able to better combine the features of the different paths you have taken. You gain the following benefits:

  • Choose one class feature you already have from a class you have at least 3 levels in. (This feature cannot be Spellcasting or Pact Magic, which already have their own rules for multiclassing). Half your levels in a second class (chosen at the time you take this feat) contribute towards class levels for that one feature. You do not qualify for other class features that affect the chosen class feature. For example, if you choose your barbarian Rage feature, levels in another class do not contribute to you getting the Relentless Rage or Persistent Rage features, but they do contribute to how many times you can rage and your rage damage (all part of the Rage feature).

PACK MULE

You are able to carry more and do not tire easily. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Strength score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • The number of item slots that you can carry is doubled.
  • You gain proficiency in Endurance.

PRECISION SHOOTER

You are able to perform several stunts with your ranged attacks. Only one of the following stunts can be applied to each attack. You gain the following benefits:

  • Ranged weapons used by you gain the disarming weapon property if you are proficient with them. (See our Weapon Properties Page).
  • Before you make an attack with a ranged weapon that you are proficient with, you can choose to make a crippling shot. If you hit a creature that relies on two to four legs for movement, you deal half damage, but their speed is reduced by 10 feet. A target of this attack can attempt a Strength saving throw at the end of its turn to remove the speed penalty. The DC equals 10 or half the damage they took from the crippling shot, whichever is higher. You can slow a creature with further crippling shots, but the DC to remove all speed penalties is equal to 10 or half the damage of the last lot of damage the target took. A success removes all speed penalties. You could also use this to target wings to reduce a target's flying speed, or an appendage to reduce climbing speed. You could also attempt to slow down creatures with more legs, but you need to target at least one quarter of the appendages to have any effect on speed.
  • Before you make an attack with a ranged weapon that you are proficient with that deals piercing damage, you can choose to make a pinning shot. There must be a suitable surface (typically wood) within 5 feet of the target and the surface needs to be further away from you than the target. On a successful hit, the target takes no damage, but is considered grappled. The DC to escape the grapple is equal to your attack roll total, but the target has advantage on their roll to escape (as they are not rolling against an active combatant). You can also attempt to pin a target to a second creature instead of a suitable surface. The attack roll must beat both target's AC. The initial target is still pinned and the creature acting as the surface takes half damage from the shot. Both are considered grappled, but if either breaks free, both creatures are free of the grapple.
  • If your initiative card is a Spade, you can choose to deal normal damage when you perform any of the stunts associated with this feat.

REMARKABLE RECOVERY

You are able to shake off debilitating effects in combat. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase one ability score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • Whenever you take the Dodge action in combat you can make a free saving throw against one effect you are suffering from that allows a saving throw each round to end.
  • If you get a particular suit for your initiative card, you automatically end one effect associated with that type of save at the start of your turn. Spade - Dexterity save; Heart - Wisdom & Charisma save; Diamond - Intelligence & Wisdom save; Club - Strength & Constitution save.

STEADY SHOOTER

Prerequisites: Proficiency with the Insight or Perception skill.
When performing ranged weapon attacks, you rely more on a careful eye or ability to anticipate your foe's movements, than manual dexterity. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Wisdom ability score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You can use your Wisdom modifier in place of your Dexterity modifier for ranged weapon attack and damage rolls.

WATER MAGIC

You have a strong magical connection to water. Perhaps it is your heritage, the deity you worship or a magical place or event affected you. You can now channel more water-based magic into your spells, and your water magic is more potent. You gain the following benefits:

  • If you cast an existing water-based spell of 1st level or higher that already does bludgeoning damage, increase the damage by 1 die, once only. If the spell makes multiple attacks, only one damage roll can be increased. This applies to spells with that clearly describe water (not cold) being the source of the magic, such as encircling waters (see our House spells on the D&D Spells page) or 'tidal wave' (in Xanathar's Guide to Everything). Check with your GM for each spell.
  • When you learn a new spell: you can change some existing spells by adding the water template to them. This decision is not made at the time of casting, but when you learn new spells. You are essentially creating new spells, so check with your GM before applying the water template. The water template can be applied to spells that normally deal acid, cold, fire, lightning, or bludgeoning damage.
  • When you add the water template to a spell: rename the spell something more appropriate. Instead of acid spray, you learn water gout. Fireball might become water burst, etc. This should also indicate what the spell will look like. Change the spell's damage type to bludgeoning and you have the option of dealing half as much damage to automatically apply one of the conditions below under casting a spell with the water template. Note that any spells that you modify that have ongoing damage lose this feature when you apply the water template. All fires of 5 feet on a side or smaller are extinguished if in the area of your water spells and creatures made of fire (usually those that are immune to fire) have disadvantage on saving throws versus your water spells.
  • When you cast a spell with the water template: for every 5 that a target fails their saving throw by, or for every 5 by which you exceed a target's AC, apply one of the following:

- target is knocked prone.
- target is moved to the edge of the area of the spell.
- target is vulnerable to cold damage until the end of their next turn.
- if the target is a fire creature, it takes double damage.
- all fires, including magical ones, are extinguished by the spell.

WILD SURVIVOR

You have spent a lot of time alone in the wild and know how to survive there. You gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your Constitution or Wisdom score by 1, to a maximum of 20.
  • You gain proficiency in the Survival skill. If you are already proficient in this skill, you gain expertise and can add double your proficiency bonus to all Survival checks. (This does not stack if you gain expertise from other sources).
  • You gain the Mask of the Wild trait as detailed under wood elf in the Player's Handbook chapter 2. If you already have this feature and are proficient in the Stealth skill, you add double your proficiency bonus to Stealth checks made in natural terrain.

NEW RACIAL FEAT DESCRIPTIONS

Racial feats were first introduced to 5E D&D in Xanathar's Guide to Everything. I have added many more below. Some of these are for core races, others are for the races we have written. Lists of available feats are found under each race on our D&D Races page.

Once you reach 5th level, you can cast the cure wounds as a 3rd level spell once with this trait, and you regain the ability to do so when you finish a long rest. You do not need to provide material components for spells cast using this feature and Charisma is your spellcasting ability for these spells.

ASTRAL SPLENDOR

Prerequisites: Deva.
You take on an imperious aspect and silvery light - that of your astral soul - shines through your eyes, mouth, heart and wounds. You gain the following benefits:

  • When you take damage you can use your reaction to shed light in a 30 foot radius. Creatures that can be blinded have disadvantage on attacks made against you whilst this light shines. The light lasts until the end of your next turn.

  • If you activate Astral Splendor as a result of receiving radiant damage, this does not count towards your daily uses.

  • If you are reduced to 0 hit points, whilst you are manifesting the aspect of the destroyer, from your Nature's Aspects racial feature you can use your reaction to immediatley spend one hit dice. If you are standing on natural terrain, this hit dice restores the maximum number of hit points. If you have no hit dice available, then you cannot use this trait.
