    Hello. I have come to present a group of 66 (couldn't think of another 600 :weep: ) vile feats that cover varying degrees of evil and power.

    Dark Aura [Vile]
    Your presence unnerves and angers natural beings around you
    Benefit: All living creatures start one category closer to hostile towards you.
    Any animal, magical beast, vermin, or fey to pass within 30 feet of you must make a will save (DC 10 + 1/2 your hit dice + Charisma bonus) or become frightened for 1d4 rounds
    You gain a +2 vile bonus on intimidate checks.

    You can curse those who have harmed you.
    Prerequisites: hexblade’s curse class feature, ability to cast 1st-level arcane spells

    In addition, increase the save DC of your hexblade’s curse class feature by +2.

    Bloodfeeder [Vile]
    Imitating a vampire, you take an opponent’s blood in battle and drink it to refresh yourself.
    Prerequisites: Base Attack Bonus +6
    Benefit: As a full-round action, you may make a single attack with a melee weapon. If it hits, the target takes 1d4 points of constitution damage. In addition, you gain 5 temporary hit points on a successful hit. These temporary hit points last up to 5 minutes.
    Special: Creatures killed by constitution damage from this source awaken 1d4 weeks later as vampire spawn unless they are revived or their bodies are destroyed sooner. You possess no special control over these vampire spawn, although you may try to rebuke or control them as normal.

    You are beyond the point of redemption, having vowed yourself to a dark master
    Benefits: You gain a +4 vile bonus on saving throws against compulsion effects.
    You are immune to any effect that would change your alignment.
    Whenever your alignment would change by natural course, you instead lose 2 points of constitution.

    Malign Bond [Vile]
    Your unholy bond with your dark master is deeper than most would dare to fathom.
    Prerequisite: Indebted to Darkness
    Benefit: Once per day, the bond you share with your master allows you to try to shrug off a worldly attack. Whenever you would take damage, you may make a fortitude save (DC= 15 + damage dealt). If you succeed, that damage is converted to nonlethal damage.
    In addition, your master can communicate telepathically with you over any distance and even across planar boundaries. This communication is only one way.

    Benefit: When you are knocked to –10 or less hit points by any source, you continue to live for 1 round. During this round, you may take a move action or make a single attack at your highest attack bonus (you may not take a 5-foot step). If this attack hits and knocks its target to 0 or less hit points, you live for an additional round using these rules. You may live for any number of rounds in this way.
    Note: While under -10 hit points, you may not be healed through any means, although you may be revived from the dead as if you had died during the previous round.

    Insidious Fear [Vile]
    You can cause fear in even the most stalwart of foes.

If this is done in response to an attack, that attack suffers a 50% miss chance.
    Special: Due to the pull from outside of our multiverse, you take a –4 penalty on saving throws made against effects from the teleportation subschool.

    This aura cannot be willingly suppressed and persists even while you are unconscious.
    Special: if you possess a divine caster level when taking this feat, it is reduced by 2, to a minimum of 1. This may keep you from casting some of your spells.

At the end of this minute, you make a diplomacy check opposed by your target’s will save. Your target adds their ranks in sense motive, if any, as a bonus to this will save. If they succeed, they do not notice the compulsion. If they fail, you may give a suggestion (as the spell), except that it lasts for only 10 minutes, it is extraordinary in nature, and the target believes it to be their own idea. Either way, the target is immune to your use of this ability for 24 hours.

    At any time, you may don a skinned hide by spending one minute to do so. Once donned, all benefits remain until either one week has passed or the husk is removed (whichever comes first). While donned, the husk grants the benefits of the wildshape class feature with a few exceptions. First of all, you may still speak, cast spells, or use manufactured weaponry while using huskshape. Secondly, using huskshape does not alter your constitution or dexterity scores. Third any sighted creature within 10 feet of you can automatically discern that you are not actually the animal whose husk you wear. Lastly, you are healed by both positive and negative energy while wearing a husk.

    Servant of Self [Vile]
    Either through psychosis or magic, you have split yourself into two personas
    Benefit: Choose an alignment. Whenever your alignment is discerned, you have a 50% chance of using your chosen alignment in place of your own.
    Whenever you are targeted by a mind-affecting effect, you have a 50% chance of ignoring it.

    Separation of Selves [Vile]
    You have managed to isolate each individual persona you possess to fight longer.
    Prerequisites: Servant of Self
    Benefit: Once per day, when you are knocked down to 0 or less health, you instantly heal 1d6/2 levels health and instantly assumes the alignment chosen in servant of self. Furthermore, you lose access to all trained-only skills in which you possess ranks.
    After using this ability, you regain your previous alignment at the next midnight.

    Self Control [Vile]
    You have enslaved your other self to your will.
    Prerequisites: Servant of Self
    Benefit: Twice per day, you can take an extra standard or move action.
    You gain a +2 bonus on spot and listen checks.

    Self Sacrifice [Vile]
    You can sacrifice your other self when it suits you.
    Prerequisites: Servant of Self
    Benefit: As a full-round action, you can heal 1d4/2 level health by temporarily slaying your other self. Alternately, when you fail a saving throw against a death effect, if your other self is alive, it is temporarily slain instead of you.
    While your other self is slain, you take a –2 penalty on all attack rolls, skill checks, and saving throws. In addition, you lose the benefits of Servant of Self and all other feats that use it as a prerequisite.
    You regain your other self one week after slaying it.
    Note: No matter how many times your other self is slain, the new one always possesses the same alignment.

    Extra Minion [Vile]
    You have gained renown for your great acts of villainy
    Prerequisites: Must possess a minion
    Benefit: you gain an additional minion, whose CR cannot exceed the lowest CR of all minions you control –1.
    Special: You may select this feat multiple times, gaining an additional, weaker minion each time.

    Default Re: 66 vile feats

    This last feat is in its own post on purpose, as it is probably the most controversial issue that I have tried to make a feat around: slavery. Before you shut me down, however, please hear my excuse. So far, slavery has had several mentions in DnD from Lords of Madness (where I got my pricing system) to Cityscape (which has a slaver/bounty hunter PrC). There are also several classes such as the thrallherd and mindbender that cut it awfully close. My goal here is not to offend anyone. For that very reason, the feat below has been given the vile tag. I refuse to answer any comment on the historical authenticity of the feat’s mechanics as it has purposefully been watered down and oversimplified. This feat has nothing to do with race and I do not want to offend the varied and wonderful people who post on these boards. I just saw a concept and wanted to finally flesh it out.

    That being said, I have put this in its own post so that if some moderator sees the word slave and instantly taboos it, they can ask me to delete this post instead of the entire thread.

    Slavelord [Vile]
    Through special connections, you have been provided with slaves.
    Prerequisites: Character level 6
    Benefits: You gain a number of 1st level commoner slaves equal to your level + your charisma modifier. If you wish, you can acquire a 1st level warrior, expert, or adept for every two commoners you are willing to go without. These slaves can only be gained at a large city or bigger community and require 1 hour to obtain. Whenever the amount of slaves you’d possess would increase, you may go through the same process to obtain them, although slain or lost slaves are not replaced.
    Your oppressor score is equal to your character level + your charisma modifier + any of the modifiers below. So long as the summed CRs of all slaves you control is equal to or less than your oppressor score, you can control them all safely.
    If the summed CR exceeds your oppressor score, the slaves may collectively make a will save each week (DC= your oppressor score) using the highest will save among them to break free. For every point by which the summed CRs exceed your oppressor score, the slaves gain a +1 bonus on this check. In addition, for every slave with so much as half as many levels as you, the slaves gain an additional +2 bonus on this save. If they fail this save, they continue working oppressed for another week. If they succeed, they manage to pull off a rebellion, either attacking you or running away in the dead of night.
    You may also buy additional slaves by entering a large enough community and spending an hour looking for the proper place. The cost for any given slave is its CR (minimum 1) squared x 100 gp.

    Oppressor Score Modifiers:
    Code:
    Lawful Alignment                                 +2
    Chaotic Alignment                                -2
    Possesses and is proficient with whip            +2
    Stationed in area where slavery is unacceptable  -2
    Stationed in area where slavery is acceptable    +2
    Stationed in area where slavery is the norm      +4
    Moves around frequently                          -6
    Known for Cruelty                                +2

    Oh no, I almost forgot.

    When I first created this thread, the feat insidious compulsion possessed the vile tag, which it has since lost. To keep with the thread's title, I will have to make a new feat.

    Press the Weak [Vile]
    The weakness of others is your strength.
    Benefits: whenever you take a standard action to crush a diminutive or smaller inanimate plant, you gain a +1 morale bonus on attack rolls and saving throws against fear effects for 1 round.
    Whenever you slay an animal or humanoid with 1 hit dice or less, you gain a +2 morale bonus on attack rolls and saving throws against fear effects for a number of rounds equal to your charisma modifier (minimum 1 round).

    Feel free to grant the above feat to any villain you grant the title of "kicker of puppies".

    P.S.: I am well aware that many of these look far too powerful for feats. The thing is, however, that I am going by the power level of vile feats submitted in elder evils, where you can gain DR 5/- for 1 round by confusing yourself or cure yourself of poison or disease by staggering yourself; where you can add your charisma bonus to all saving throws (possibly doubling it) or can add the number of vile feats you control to any roll at the cost of 1 Con; where you can gain immunity to mind-affecting effects by lowering your wisdom score by 4 or where a potential +8 bonus to any roll is measured against 1 damage/level. As feats are one of the few ways (other than a few obscure PrCs) that you can solidly identify yourself as evil, they have to be slightly more powerful by neccessity.

    interesting stuff, looks like you put a lot of work into it. I haven't read them all yet, but I intend to, and I will make more comments. for now though: with Savagery Beyond Death, can you be healed while in that state, and in that way avoid death? or do you have to die once you're done killing?

    Benefits: Whenever you confirm a critical hit using a morningstar, you may forego any iterative attacks to convert all damage dealt into vile damage. Furthermore, the target must make a fortitude save (DC= damage dealt) or fall dead.
    Two comments; I think the DC for this fort save may be a bit too high. Second, given everything else about this feat shouldn't a fighter be able to take it as a fighter bonus feat?

    Good idea. There are a ton of awesome feats here, but it's unlikely many would be used without something like this.

    My Counteroffer.

    Paragon of Wickedness

    Prerequisites:
    Feats: Any 5 vile

    Hit Die: d4
    Code:
    Level   BAB   Fort   Ref   Will   Special                                 Spellcasting
    1        +0    +2     +0    +2     Bonus Vile Feat, Aura of Evil
    2        +1    +3     +0    +3     Bonus Vile Feat, Chosen of Darkness     +1 level of Existing class
    3        +1    +3     +1    +3     Bonus Vile Feat, Dark Indulgence
    Skills: 2 + Int mod per level: Bluff, Disguise, Forgery, Intimidate, Knowledge (all skills, taken individually), sleight of hand.
    Bonus Vile Feat: At each level, you gain a bonus vile feat, so long as you meet its prerequisites.
    Aura of Evil (Ex): At 1st level, you gain an aura of evil as if you were a cleric with a class level equal to your character level. In addition, for each vile feat you possess, you are treated as possessing two more hit dice than you really possess for the purposes of determining your aura’s intensity. Lastly, all creatures adjacent to you are shaken for as long as they remain and for 1 round afterward (no save).
    Chosen of Darkness (Ex): At 2nd level, you gain the favor of darkness. You gain intimidate as a class skill for all classes and gain a +2 bonus on intimidate checks. In addition, once per day, while committing an evil act, you may take 10 on any attack rolls, saving throw, or skill check.
    Spellcasting: At 2nd level, you gain an increase in caster level and gain spells known and spells per day as if you had gained a level in any spellcasting class to which you previously belonged. If you do not already possess levels in a spellcasting class, this grants no additional benefit.
    Dark Indulgence (Ex): At 3rd level, evil accepts you as its own. For the purposes of using items and meeting the prerequisites of feats and prestige classes, you are treated as having the outsider type and the evil subtype. This ability grants you none of the other bonuses or penalties that cone with these types.

    Alright, I think I need to edit my Prestige class a little.

    In the mean time, here are 5 new vile feats

    Hellspawn Vile
    Because of your connections to the devils, you gain power, but at the cost of your soul
    Prerequisites: LE alignment, Warlock level 6
    Benefit: you deal an extra D6 worth of damage on your elderitch blasts, and an extra invocation, of a grade at least one category lower than the max you can use.
    Special:, you may only be brought back from the dead by a true resurrection spell, or a wish or miracle followed by any spell that brings back the dead. Also, you take an extra point of damage per level of smiter any time you are the target of a smite evil (or something similar).

    Vow of violence Vile
    you have sworn to hurt every living thing you can
    Prerequisites: unholy vow, vow of vengeance (for both feats, see book of the drow).
    Benefit: every time you kill a creature, you gain a floating +1 that you can apply to any skill check, damage roll, attack roll, or saving throw. You may hold any number of floating bonus at one time, provided you use them within 24 hours of killing the creature .
    Special: you must kill every creature you defeat in combat, as well as killing one creature every day. If you fail in either of these components, you lose this feat forever. If you fail in this vow because of magical enchantment, you must get an atonement to get this feat back.

    Abyssal anointer Vile
    You may grant other creatures temporary power, but at a cost to them
    Prerequisites: level 6, chaotic evil
    Benefit: you may grant a number of creatures (no more than your Cha modifier per day) the fiendish template. this template lasts for 24 hours. The recipients of this benefit must make a fort save (DC = your HD+your cha modifier) or become addicted to gaining the template. The template his a moderate addiction rating.

    Default Re: 66 vile feats

    These last two feats might be controversial, because they deal with racism, which many (my self included) consider to be one of the greatest evils a man can do. Racism is found often in DnD, from orc who kill other creatures in (un)holy crusades, to dragons, who, consider themselves above other creatures. Heck, there is even a god of racism in the complete divine, Wastri who is, (somehow) lawful neutral. These feats should help capture the feel of this unbridled hate.

    Racist Vile
    your contempt for another species of humanoids grants you greater ability to hurt them, at the sake of the ability to communicate to them.
    Benefit: Select a type of Humanoid whose category you do not fall under. You gain favored enemy bonus against them as if you were a first level ranger who took that type of humanoid as a favored enemy. This stacks with the rangers favored enemy.
    Special: you automatically fail all diplomacy checks against this type of enemy


    supremist Vile
    You hate all humaniods who are not like you, and have great powers to hurt them, but, you lose the ability to talk peacefully to them
    Prerequisites: Racist
    Benefit: As Racist, but it applies to all eligible humanoid types.
    Special: As Racist, but it applies to all eligible humanoid types.


    Please do not close this thread if these feats are banned. Just PM me and I will delete them.

    Although perhaps not the proper format in which to do so, here is my expression of grief for the loss of Gary Gygax

    Diabolic Trapmaker [Vile]
    Your traps do not give others a fighting chance.
    Prerequisites: Craft (trapmaking) 6 ranks
    Benefits: When building a trap, you may choose to make it a diabolic trap by spending twice as much time and resources.
    A diabolic trap does not allow a saving throw and automatically succeeds on any attack roll unless a creature targeted succeeds on a DC 20 Intelligence or Wisdom check, in which case the attack roll or saving throw is made normally. In addition, any onset delay built into the trap is reduced by one round.

    For giving a players a say in the fantasy, for starting a worldwide craze, and for tricking countless players into the mouth of the statue, I solute you, Mr. Gygax. You will not be forgotten.

    Zoot, in the following order, Thank you, Thank you, and Thank you.

    Smart Thog, its about time that I looked at your feats:

    Hellspawn: It may be easier to just grant a bonus least invocation to encourage the player to take the feat at 6th level instead of waiting until 18th level to get a better invocation.

    Vow of Violence: Well, the vow is easy to keep and the effect is well worth it. Kudos on a job well done.

    Abyssal Anointer: The ultimate corruptor mechanic. I like.

    Racist/Supremist: A very good mechanic for many enemies. Although it is a most definitely vile concept, I wouldn't worry about it being banned as you explained yourself thoroughly ahead of time. As far as the effect, however, you may want to halve the bonus of the effect for the racist feat. After all, there is a difference between hating a race and training yourself to hunt them. When you take supremist, however, you can increase the bonus to the normal +2 in addition to expanding it to everyone.

    Thanks for the complements. I was thinking that Vow of violence and Abyssal antioner were too deadly, and the others were too weak (execpt for supremisit, Which I thought was balenced). I will edit them later.

    Not currently, as I have been focusing my homebrewing efforts towards new normal feats and re-balancing half the system.

    The forum rule on thread necromancing is 2 months old, IIRC. Now, that is an example/exageration. But 2 weeks old isn't unreasonable.

    So no, I didn't admit to that. I did admit to intentionally bumping a thread though.

    YES!

    If you have your own vile feats, by all means add them. let's work up to 666, if we can.

    The next one to be submitted will be #72.

    Prerequisites: Dark Aura
    Benefits: You now radiate evil as an evil cleric does. Your Dark Aura can now frighten any living being instead of the former list.

    Heres another one

    Vow of Greed [Vile]
    you have sworn to collect gold, not for your pleasure, but to make sure others cannot have it.
    Prerequisite Unholy Vow
    Benefit you gain the abilities listed on the table below, effects based on your level.
    Special you may not spend gold on anything that you make you happy or improve you (or a friends) power. You may only spend your gold on ways to make more money, weapons (but they must be so heavily decorated that they impose a -2 penelty on to hit and damage rolls) but not armor or a shield, ways to hurt others (however, keep in mind the above rules) and a huge mansion (or several, as long as they don't make you happy) along with art objects (as long as you hate them). You are also allowed to buy extremely decadent meals, but they last foul in your mouth.

    Code:
    Level     Benefit
    1          AC bonus +4, Bonus Vile feat
    2          Bonus vile feat
    3          AC bonus +5, Entropic shield
    4          Vile strike +1 (magic), Bonus vile feat 
    5          Slave caravan 
    6          AC bonus +6 deflection bonus +1 Bonus vile feat
    7          Resistance +1, ability score enhancement +2
    8          Natural armor +1, false philanthropist, Bonus vile feat 
    9          AC bonus +7
    10        Vile Strike +2 (evil), Damage Reduction/magic, Bonus Vile feat
    11        Ability score enhancement +4/+2
    12        AC Bonus +8, Deflection bonus +2 Eternal Slaves, Bonus Vile feat
    13        Resistance +2, Energy Resistance 5
    14        Vile Strike +3, Don't touch the clothes, Bonus Vile Feat
    15        AC bonus +9 Ability score enhancement +6/+4/+2, Damage reduction (good)
    16        Natural armor bonus +2, Bonus Vile feat
    17        Exalted Strike +4, Resistance +3 Regeneration 
    18        AC bonus +10, Deflection +3, Spell Resistance, Bonus Vile Feat 
    19        Ability Score Enhancement +8/+6/+4/+2, Damage reduction 10 
    20        Exalted strike +5, energy resistance 15, Bonus Vile Feat
    AC bonus (Ex) your clothes become much sturdy, and they protect you by giving you an armor bonus equal to the amount that your level has earned.

    Bonus Vile feat (Ex) At first level and every even level, you gain a vile feat as a bonus feat. You do not get these feats retroactively (unlike all other aspects of this feat) if you take this at any time after first.

    Entropic Shield (Su) At third level you gain a permanent entropic shield.

    Vile Strike (Su) At Forth level your weapons gain a +1 enhancement, and are treated (in all respects) as if they were magic. This increases as the chart shows. At 10th level, your weapons are treated as evil.

    Slave Caravan (Ex) At 5th level, you acquire (through possibly legitimate but by no means humane sources) a group of slaves equal to your level + your Cha modifier. These are in addition to any other slaves that you have. These slaves are to mentally scared to rebel, and live in constant fear of you (and the beatings that you surely bring). They will do anything for you and are first level experts with the elite ability scores (you select the race and how the ability points are distributed.)

    Deflection Bonus (Su) At 6th level, you gain a deflection bonus to AC.

    Resistance (Su) At 7th level, you gain a resistance bonus on your saves.

    Ability score enhancement (Ex) Also at 7th level, you gain a +2 bonus on any selected ability score. Every four levels after, this ability gains another +2 bonus. Every time this ability gains an increase, you gain another plus +2 to a different selected ability score. These improve as the first stat (see the chart).

    Natural armor bonus (Ex) At eighth level you gain a +1 bonus to your natural armor.

    False philanthropist (Ex) By putting money into various charities (that you secretly own) you make all those you think they have found your evil through spells doubt their accuracy. You become immune to detect thoughts, discern lies, and any attempt to discern your alignment.

    Damage reduction (Su) At 10th level, you gain Damage reduction 5/magic. it improves as the chart shows.

    Greater slave caravan (Su) By instilling great fear in your slaves, you cause their spirits to (subconsciously) serve you after their death. If a slave that you got through slave caravan dies, he is giving the ghost template and will continue to serve you. If you die these spirits depart for their afterlife, and even getting you raised will not convince them to serve you again. They are free now.

    Energy resistance (Ex) At 13th level, you gain energy resistance 5 for all energy types. This improves to 15 at level 20.
    Don't touch my clothes (Su) At 14th level you learn how to channel your pain into pain for others. Anytime you take damage (be it by spell or attack), you may cause the attacker to take damage equal to what they dealt you, or 5 points of damage, whichever is less.

    Regeneration (Ex) At 17th level, you learn that you will have to heal yourself as nobody else will, so you developed impressive healing powers. You heal one point of damage per hour, and one point of non lethal damage every five minutes.

    Spell resistance (Su) At 18th level, you gain spell resistance equal to 12+your level.

    Darker Aura: A bit too powerful. We don't want a 1st level human commoner with dark aura and darker aura freaking the bajeebers out of everyone. I'd make it so that you can take darker aura multiple times and that each time you take it, the effect extends to a single type/subtype of creature.

    Vow of Greed: This one I see some problems with. For one thing, some of the flavor behind it doesn't make sense. Among this flavor is getting a band of slaves for no apparent reason, gaining immunity to magic by having (at some point) started charities, and returning the pain that others deal to you (which really has more to do with spite than greed). Also, as you can still use items (you just can't buy them), this feat needs to be fundamentally weaker than VoP. Lastly, instead of not allowing you to buy anything that makes you happy, why not just stop the character from spending money altogether?

    This is my version of Vow of Greed:

    Vow of Greed [Vile]
    you have sworn to collect gold, not for your pleasure, but to make sure others cannot have it.
    Prerequisite Unspeakable Vow
    Benefit you gain the abilities listed on the table below, effects based on your level. When you are slain, all treasure you own is burnt to ashes.
    Special you may not spend copper, silver, gold, platinum, or any similar commodity to gain any good or service. While you may not purchase, you may still coerce, blackmail, trade in favors, steal, or barter your services, etc. in order to obtain your desires.


    Code:
    Level   Benefit
    1        Bonus Vile Feat, AC Bonus +2
    2        Sight of Shadows
    3        Hoarder’s Pocket
    4        AC Bonus +3
    5        Bonus Vile Feat
    6        Shielded Mind
    7        Hoarder’s Sustenance
    8        AC Bonus +4
    9        Bonus Vile Feat
    10       Sight of Darkness
    11       Hoarder’s Vigilance
    12       AC Bonus +5
    13       Bonus Vile Feat
    14       Treasure Scent
    15       Hoarder’s Vigor
    16       AC Bonus +6
    17       Bonus Vile Feat
    18       True Seeing
    19       Hoarder’s Trap
    20       AC Bonus +7
    AC Bonus (Ex): Dark Forces have taken personal enjoyment in keeping your treasure away from the world, protecting you to keep it so. At 1st level, you gain a +2 bonus to your AC. This bonus does not stack with that of any armor worn. Every 4 levels afterwards, the size of the bonus increases by +1.

    Bonus Vile Feat: At 1st level, 5th level, and every 4 levels afterwards, you gain a bonus vile feat so long as you meet its prerequisites.

    Sight of Shadows (Ex): At 2nd level, your senses extend to help you guard your hoard. You gain low-light vision. If you already possessed low-light vision, you instead gain superior low-light vision.

    Hoarder’s Pocket (Su): At 3rd level, you gain the ability to store your valuables with you. You gain exclusive access to an extradimensional space that can hold up to 100 pounds/level of coins, gems, art items, and similar goods. Items may be withdrawn at a rate of one coin/gem/item each round as a move action that provokes attacks of opportunity.

    Shielded Mind (Su): At 6th level, you have learned how to guard your mind as jealously as you guard your hoard. You’re mind cannot be read through detect thoughts and similar effects, you are immune to effects that read your alignment, and you may not be contacted telepathically.

    Hoarder’s Sustenance (Su): At 7th level, you can draw sustenance from your hoard. You no longer need to eat or drink.

    Sight of Darkness (Ex): At 10th level, your sight pierces shadows, granting you darkvision out to 60 feet. If you already possessed darkvision, its range is extended by 60 feet.

    Hoarder’s Vigilance (Su): At 11th level, your paranoia regarding your hoard reaches supernatural levels. You no longer need to sleep.

    Treasure Scent (Su): At 14th level, your desire to expand your hoard fills your every thought. You continuously benefit from the Treasure Scent spell.

    Hoarder’s Vigor (Ex): At 15th level, your hoard has given you a reason to live when death would otherwise be inevitable. You heal at twice the normal rate. Furthermore, when knocked below 0 hit points, you are automatically stabilized.

    True seeing (Su): At 18th level, you’re perceptions of the world have truly extended into the supernatural. You continuously benefit from the True Seeing spell.

    Hoarder’s Trap (Su): At 19th level, whenever any creature attempts to steal one or more of your coins, gems, art objects, etc., they are trapped, as if by a maze spell (caster level equals character level), if they fail a Will save (DC = 10 + 1/2 class level + Cha modifier). Whether the creature succeeds on their save or not, you also receive a mental alert.

    This last feat is in its own post on purpose, as it is probably the most controversial issue that I have tried to make a feat around: slavery. Before you shut me down, however, please hear my excuse. So far, slavery has had several mentions in DnD from Lords of Madness (where I got my pricing system) to Cityscape (which has a slaver/bounty hunter PrC). There are also several classes such as the thrallherd and mindbender that cut it awfully close. My goal here is not to offend anyone. For that very reason, the feat below has been given the vile tag. I refuse to answer any comment on the historical authenticity of the feat’s mechanics as it has purposefully been watered down and oversimplified. This feat has nothing to do with race and I do not want to offend the varied and wonderful people who post on these boards. I just saw a concept and wanted to finally flesh it out.

    That being said, I have put this in its own post so that if some moderator sees the word slave and instantly taboos it, they can ask me to delete this post instead of the entire thread.
    Ya know, their was a time (greeks or romans, i cant remember which) in which a fellow could sell himself into slavery to pay off a dept. Slavery motivated by race is bad, but slavery itself is just the next step down in terms of hired help.
    Not that you really need this feat to own slaves. Buy a hireling, Mark or Geas it and then stop paying it. Buy another hireling.
