Skill Expert (Feat)

From Epic Path
Jump to navigation Jump to search


You have chosen to dedicate a fair bit of time and effort at improving your ability with a particular skill.

Prerequisites: Level 1

Unlocks: Skill Specialist (Feat), Skill Prodigy (Feat), Skill Virtuoso (Feat)

Benefit: Choose one skill. You get a +2 feat bonus on all checks involving the chosen skill, and your critical success chance increases by +1 when making skill checks with the chosen skill (you now achieve a critical skill success on a die result of 19-20, instead of just a 20). The bonus you receive when you critically succeed on a skill check with this skill is +5 (unchanged).

In addition, you no longer critically fail a skill check with the chosen skill on a natural 1 result. Instead, you can only critically fail if you fail the check by 5 or more. A skill check result of a natural 1 is still a (normal) failure, of course.

Note that this bonus does not stack with any other feat that provides a feat bonus to this skill, except for the Skill Specialist and Skill Prodigy feats.

Special: You can gain this feat multiple times. Its effects do not stack. Each time you take the feat, it applies to a new skill.
