This feat is intended to be used with the Tome of Prowess skill system.

Always Aware [Prowess] The villain was only visible for a moment before he disappeared. But a moment is all you need.Prerequisites: Perception 6+ ranksBenefit: After you have 6 or more ranks in Perception than the minimum needed to use a particular ability, you reduce the total penalty for rushing the action by 5 points. You also gain one additional rush option: Rush a swift action to an immediate action in exchange for a -5 check penalty. Example: If you rushed a standard action Notice check to a swift action, for example, you would suffer a 0 penalty instead of the normal -5 penalty. Similarly, if you had 10 ranks in Perception, you could use the Uncover Secrets ability as a move action with a 0 penalty, or as a swift action for only a -5 penalty.

Making a notice check as an immediate action allows you to attempt to gain more detail from the event at the instant you are given information from your passive perception, instead of waiting for your turn to arrive. This eliminates the possibility of the event ending before you can glean something from it, so long as you have an immediate action to spend on the check. It only works as often as you have immediate actions, however, which is once per round for most characters. These reactionary notice checks are made with a net -5 penalty, and are not as reliable as using a swift action on your turn.Normal: You suffer full penalties for rushing and may not make checks as an immediate action.
