5e Feats: Revisited


We all know that some of the feats from 5e were incredibly more powerful than other options. 
I'm looking STRAIGHT at you, Crossbow Expert, Sharpshooter, and Great Weapon master! You know EXACTLY what you did! 

Well, through DMing 2-4 times a week and countless hours of pondering, along with community feedback and five revisions: I have compiled a list of "improved feats" for 5e to bring the weakest feats (voted by the community) up to snuff when compared to their over-powered counterparts. 

Smarter Not Bigger: Some feats did not need a lot of altering to make them quite a tempting option for a variety of classes, such as the new Tavern Brawler, Weapon Master, and Skilled. A slight change makes a huge difference! 

Total Revamp: Other feats, sadly, were Dead on Arrival for me and many people I spoke with and needed to be altered a great deal to work. Charger, for instance, was considered one of if not the weakest feat in the game. But now my melee characters really struggle with wanting to take the feat at every stat bump they get - but it's not seen as "mandatory" which is exactly how they should be designed. 

Borrowed Mechanics: Some games have very interesting and dynamic mechanics that 5e lacks. Some of those mechanics have made their way into these feats in a very sublte and streamlined way - to not be so jarring as to feel alien to new and veteran players alike! 

Easily Applied: Like the rest of my Revisited series - i did not want to break away from 5e just for the sake of doing new things - I wanted to shape and tweak the 5e I know and love, and am familiar with, in subtle ways to make it see more "balanced" and fun throughout.

This is only a small product, but it's a valuable one - taking some of the less useful feats from 5e and updating them to bring them more in line with the power and versatility offered by the other standard feats. I haven't had a chance to use all of [...]

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
