Daily Punch 2-24-15 Knowledge is Power feat for DnD 5e

I’ve been thinking about how to combine skills in DnD 5e.  Here’s a feat that does some of what I’d like to add to the system.


Knowledge is Power

You’re good at talking to people, but better when you’ve got some knowledge of what your talking about.  Gain the following benefits:

  • Increase your intelligence or wisdom by +1 to a maximum of 20.
  • When you make a Charisma(persuasion), Charisma(deception), or Charisma(intimidate) check and have proficiency in a relevant skill, you may double your proficiency bonus for that check if you include information from that knowledge in your check.  In the case of expertise, you triple your proficiency bonus, not quadruple.

    1. I was hoping to encourage non CHA based character to do more social stuff. By having a feat that added proficiency if you have a knowledge or wisdom skill, you get more wizards and clerics talking instead of just letting the bard play in town.

  1. Also, DM can allow, if they want, to have someone do a multiple skill check where they would add the skill level for all which doubles the proficiency if they are proficient with both to the d20 roll.
