Stealth Speaker [Wordcasting] Prerequisites: Know at least one spell wordBenefit: This feat scales with your Wordcasting level.
- Level 1: Whispering Words — You speak your words quietly enough that you can make Move Silently checks while doing so.
- Level 5: Subtle Hand Gestures — You move your hands (or other target-designating limbs) subtly enough that it takes a DC 25 Spot check to notice, and only if they're watching you.
- Level 10: Handless — You don't actually move your limbs at all when you cast spells; you just imagine it. Your Wordcasting spells have no Somatic component.
- Level 15: Voiceless — You don't actually speak when you cast spells; the weave of magic reads your mind. Your Wordcasting spells have no Verbal component.
Balance: To put this down to Rogue level, split this into two feats: A feat that gives the level 1 and 5 abilities, and a second feat that has the first as a prerequisite and gives the level 10 and 15 abilities. The level requirements stay the same, but you get a -10 penalty to the Move Silently checks, the DC of the Spot check is only 15, and completely de-somatizing or de-verbalizing a spell reduces your Wordcasting check by 1 each for the spell.
