Seeing as Halloween is coming up, me and my players gathered to create the first in a series of holiday-themed feat sets. Enjoy!
We've seen them all before: the person who eats nothing but candy and wears their costume all day on Halloween, the person who stays up all night waiting for Santa on Christmas Eve, that enthusiastic drunk guy at every New Years party. These people embody the spirit of holidays. These Scions of the Holiday believe and obsess about the holiday they are devoted to so much, that their association with that holiday causes the spirit of the holiday to infuse itself within the Scion, granting it awesome holiday-themed powers.
Rules for Holiday feats
Holiday feats, for the most part, act the same as a heritage feat-chain, excepting one thing: Once you choose a holiday to embody, you cannot choose to embody another holiday. For example, a Scion of Halloween could not choose the Scion of Christmas feat and start taking Christmas feats.
Now, time for the actual feats:
Scion of Halloween[Holiday, Halloween]
You get so much into Halloween that it begins to grant you special powers. You gain low-light vision and a +1 per [Halloween] feat on Spot checks in low-light conditions
Special: You cannot take a [Holiday] feat for any other holiday after taking this feat
Candy Lover[Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween, any other Halloween feat
You produce candy out of nowhere with an effect similar to the Goodberry
spell, except that it affects the candy produced instead. When others consume this candy, it has the standard effect the spell would normally have on them. However, when you eat the candy, you may choose to forgo the healing granted by it in order to gain one of the following effects:
- Sugar Rush: You are under the effect of Expeditious Retreat for a number of rounds equal to 1/2 the number of Halloween feats you have.
- Hyper: You gain a bonus to your speed equal to 5 x the # of Halloween feats you have for a number of rounds equal to the number of Halloween feats you have
- Candy is good for you: You heal a number of hit points equal to 1 + the number of Halloween feats you have
- Candy is my Strength: you gain a +2 bonus to Str or Con for a number of rounds equal to the number of Halloween feats you have
You may make use of this feat a number of times per day equal to 1/2 the Halloween feats you have(rounded down)
Cool Costume[Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween
You learn how to create cool costumes through the power of Halloween. You gain an effect similar to Disguise Self, except that the caster level is equal to your HD, the duration is changed to 1 hour/caster level, and it is a supernatural ability. You may create such an effect a number of times per day equal to the number of Halloween feats you have.
Awesome Costume [Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween, Cool Costume, 6th level
Your costumes just became more awesome. The Disguise Self effect changes to Alter Self, except that the wearer can treat his type as any one other type, chosen when this feat is selected, otherwise acting the same as the effect granted by Cool Costume. This feat counts as two uses of the Cool Costume feat.
Scary Costume[Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween, Awesome Costume , Cool Costume, 9th level
When under the effect granted by Awesome Costume, you gain the Frightful Presence ability(10+1/2 HD+Cha Will save).
Pumpkin Bombs[Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween, 3rd level
You learn how to throw Pumpkin Bombs like that guy in The Legend of Sleepy Hollow
. You gain the ability to throw one pumpkin bomb per encounter per Halloween feat you have. These pumpkin bombs are ranged touch attacks that deal 1d6 fire damage per Halloween feat you possess(Reflex half), and have a range of 5 + 5 feet/Halloween feat you have.
Major Scion of Halloween[Holiday, Halloween]
Scion of Halloween, three other Halloween feats, 12th level
You are essentially a beloved child of Halloween. You gain darkvision to a number of feet equal to 10 per Halloween feat you possess. Once per day per Halloween feat you have, you may project a frightful aura for a number of rounds equal to the number of Halloween feats you posses. This acts like the frightful presence ability, except that it is a supernatural ability, can affect other creatures with up to 1.5 x your HD, and may affect even those who are immune to fear effects.
