Feats

Feats are powerful abilities that characters (and monsters) may use on limited occasions, the situation has to be correct you need to be prepared, have luck on your side and impeccable timimg. They require you to already have certain skills at a given ability or other prerequisites.

Depending upon the feat they may be performed once per round or once per encounter or once per day.

Round feats : You can use these at any time

Encounter feats : Once an opponent has seen a feat used on himself or a comrade he will not be susceptible to it a second time.

Day feats : These exhaust your body, only rest (not even healing ) will not enable you to attempt to try it again.
