A "floating" 1st level feat, an idea to address some concerns about Ancestry, General, and other feats.


General Discussion


I am one of those that feels the Ancestry to be a bit too light in the beginning. Directly, I had wished for a second ancestry feat which I feel would solve the problem. I had a different idea when I was looking through the general feats and noticed that you don't get any at first level, though.

Characters could have a floating 1st level feat that can be used for General, Skill, or Ancestry feats. This could round out the character a bit more while not focusing on the Ancestry itself. Class feats should probably not be allowed, as they are higher tier of feat and would diminish the more flavorful choices.


Ancestry design and with that ancestry feats are terrible.

You should get all 5 feats at character creation and acestry feats should turn into general feats.

Just make that extra feat a general feat. All skill feats are also general feats. The general feat Ancestral Paragon gives you a 1st level Ancestry feat.
