List of Feats
The player characters gain a new special ability each time they gain three levels. These capacities are called feats. Many feats have prerequisites, such as being a spellcaster, having a certain feat or having a sufficient base attack bonus. Fighters gain many more feats than wizards and clerics do. The following feats are available in Knights of the Chalice.
