True, we might be getting into "making feats which prevent people from doing things they arguably already could."

Does it? Because "normally" (as in, according to the rules), you use lores only for Recall Knowledge and Earn Income; unless it's explicitly specified (like Cooking Lore for the meal recipes). What I'm envisioning here is a feat which would for example allow you to use Cheliax Lore to Coerce (instead of Intimidation) or Create Forgery (instead of Society), with a suitable bonus to both.

And sure - many such feats would be highly campaign-specific. But then, there are many campaigns which are bound to a region anyway, so those would fit in them nicely. For example, looking through Kingmaker (2e), specific feats for Cooking, Warfare, Politics, River Kingdoms, Brevoy and Pitax lores would fit in there nicely.

the laws of Cheliax are a part of Cheliax. So finding the specific law you want could easily be a Recall Knowledge on Cheliax Lore.

i dont want us to fall in the pf1 trap that everything needed a feat to do it.
