I have been toying around with an idea and I am wondering if those of you who have read through the playtest book can give me some pointers. I was going to base the Pure Blood Azlanti using the stadard Human template but replace the Bonus Feat abilitity with an ability I call "Borderline Psychic" which acts in every way like the "Alertness" feat AND can be stacked with WITH feat. With the current way the Advanced Races Guide book is written, is this "do-able"?
The more you want to pile up to that template only serves as greater reasons for me to say . "No."
@ Galnornag: Yes but I am wanting to make my own template not connected to the one in the Inner Sea World Guide.
@ LazarX: I am not adding anything...per se. I am taking one thing away and replacing it.
By the way I hope that you not taking my answers and "snippy". I was just clarifying my post.
Alertness grants a +2 bonus to Perception and Sense Motive. The bonus feat costs 4 RP. A +2 racial bonus to Perception and Sense Motive would cost a total of 4 RP. That seems balanced to me. That would also stack with Alertness without having to specify that it does.
If it was a +2 racial bonus on perception and sense motive then no problem, both that and the bonus feat have the same RP cost. However, the feat improves to +4 at 10th level so allowing it to stack with alertness would be +8 to the most important skill in the game. That would be my only issue.
