Additional ASIs (5e Variant Rule)

Discuss this article
Characters in 5e have very few ASIs in 5e, and due to the need that many have to get their primary ability score to 20, access to feats in order to customize a character tends to be rather lacking.
Under this variant, whenever a character gains a feat, they may choose an ability score and increase it by one. If the feat would already grant a bonus to an ability score, they must choose a different ability score to increase by one.
In this way, ASIs retain some of their value as the only way to increase an ability score by two with a single ASI.
