All races/classes ok (with GM permission for weird stuff).

Other House Rules

  • Strain/Injury rules may be used.
  • All casters get Eschew Materials.
  • Point Blank Shot is no longer a prerequisite for Precise Shot. It is still a prerequisite for any feat that has Precise Shot as a prerequisite, such as Improved Precise Shot.
  • Combat Expertise is no longer a prerequisite for any Improved [Combat Maneuver] feat, including Improved Feint.
  • Combat maneuvers do not provoke attacks of opportunity unless they fail. (( Note: Monsters will not be combat maneuvering all over the place to exploit this. Thematic combat maneuvers may occur. ))
