How about something for DnD Next today?


Level 1: Superior Defense- additional choice

Shield Cover:  When you are wielding a shield and you or a creature within 5 feet of you are subject to an effect requiring a save,, you can use your reaction to block the attack.  Spend one expertise die, roll it , and add the number rolled to the target’s save value against that attack.


Thoughts gang?

Loving Neverwinter, thought maybe some of its ideas should make their way into tabletop RPGs…


Trained Help


Requires: item creation feat

Benefit:  You have the services of a person who can create any item you can create.  He/she requires only 75% of the normal amount needed to create any item you could create.  This person still requires all the time you would need to make the item and may not help in any way to adventure.  The GM may involve this person in adventures however.

I like the new idea of weapon mastery in DnD Next…let’s expand on that…


Double accuracy


Benefit:  You use a reroll of a die give to you by your weapon mastery power and roll the same number on both dice rolls, consider the rolled value equal to the maximum of the die type.

How about a monster feat for pathfinder?  No love for the swimming monsters?


Flyby Attack (Monster)

This creature can make an attack before and after it moves while swimming and does so gracefully.

Prerequisite: swim speed.

Benefit: When swimming  the creature can take a move action and another standard action at any point during the move. The creature cannot take a second move action during a round when it makes a flyby attack.  The creature does not provoke an attack of opportunity from the target of the attack.
