View Full Version : Powerful Build Feat? (3.5)

I seem to recall seeing a feat somewhere, at some point that grants the Powerful Build trait - though it may have been race-specific or something. Does anyone know about it?

I believe it's called Jortbrund, and it's in a FR source... PGTF?

Jotunbrud, Races of Faźrun. Human regional feat, and not quite Powerful Build.

Jotunbrud, that's right. I knew it!

Awesome.

One big difference is that a lot of feats are specific to creatures of Large size or larger, or Medium creatures with Powerful Build. Jotunbrud wouldn't let you qualify for those.

Yeah, I notice it's nowhere near as good as Powerful Build. That's a bummer.

Strongarm Bracers (MIC, 6000 GP) should be able to do everything you need Powerful Build to do.

What exactly are you trying to accomplish with Powerful Build? We may be able to suggest other work-arounds.

There's a feat called Powerful Wild Shape which lets you retain your existing Powerful Build ability while in alternate forms.

I'd just use LA buy off for a goliath, personally, if powerful build is important to you. You actually get it, some nice stat boots, and it's only 1 LA, which isn't god-awful, just gimps you a bit.
