Re: Scaling Fighter Feats: Know Any Good Ones? Any Advice for Making Them?
As much as the idea is quite good, it still feels a bit like it's shoehorning characters into something alike to feat chains - and having taken a look at your feats I feel too many of them give just scalling numerical bonuses, with too small number of them offering new in-combat options.

I know it's actually hard to invent something else they might be doing - At least I had this problem when creating my reworked feats.
Overall, it seems that first we must come to a consensus what a feat means - something we "just can do", and to do something else, even if similar, we must take anoter feat, or something we're "gradually getting better at and exploring new possibilities", thus opening the feats that gradually give out more options. It comes down to a design choice of course.
And having said that, I never actually got to post mine on the Homebrew forums. I guess I'll do that soon.
