On monday the 1st of December, the 30th volume of the Fantastic Feats series was released – “Fantastic Feats Volume 30 – Arcane Trickster“. This featured feats for the Arcane Trickster, a prestige class for The Pathfinder Roleplaying Game and can be found in the Pathfinder® Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook™ (PZO1110).
One feature that was semi-introduced in volume 29, was that of “Spell Sacrifice”. Some of the feats grant a variable bonus that depends on a spell be used up, or sacrificed, to power the feat. A random spell is used for the level chosen to provide a bonus equal to roughly spell level/3, so a 3rd level spell sacrificed would grant the feat a +1 bonus, but the sacrifice of a 9th level spell would grant a +3 bonus. These sacrificed spells are regained in the normal way for the class. However, if you run out of spells to “power” the feat, you can no-longer use it, giving you a tactical choice; do you use a random spell you may need later or a a feat you need now?
These can be for both players and NPCs, as long as they meet the requirements and GM’s approval. In fact , giving these feats to a NPC first is a good way to introduce these, and other new features to your game world. Your group may have gone up against a Arcane Trickster before and think they know how they act, but when they can do things that other’s can’t and the group starts to think “Just what are we fighting…?”, then you know you are doing a good job.
It can be found on sale here and is also available in various bundles, which save you money.
