SRD:General (Feat Type)

From Dungeons and Dragons Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search
General feats are those that do not belong to any other feat type. There are no special rules regarding their acquisition or use outside of those presented in the feat text.

Note that many of the feats classified as [General] feats in the SRD are more accurately classified as [Fighter] feats as they are specifically noted as allowable for fighters to acquire with their bonus feats, making them effectively Fighter Bonus Feats. In later 3.5e products these types of feats had the [Fighter] tag instead of [General].
