Ascension Games, LLC – Metascript Feats

A metascript feat is the equivalent of a metamagic feat for rune magic users. As scribes do not have spell slots, they instead can only apply a particular metascript feat to their scripts a set number of times per day, based on their scribe level. Some metascript feats also limit what level of script they can be applied to (typically, this is based on the highest level of script the scribe can cast).

Applying a metascript feat to a script increases its casting time to a full-round action, just like when applying a metamagic feat to a spontaneously cast spell. The exception to this is the Quicken Script feat, which instead reduces the casting time of a script to a swift action. A scribe cannot modify a single casting of a script with more than one metascript feat at a time.

Feat Descriptions

Feats are summarized on the table below. Note that the prerequisites and benefits of the feats on this table are abbreviated for ease of reference. See the feats description for full details.

The following format is used for all feat descriptions.

Feat Name: The feat’s name also indicates what subcategory, if any, the feat belongs to, and is followed by a basic description of what the feat does.

Prerequisite: A minimum ability score, another feat or feats, a minimum base attack bonus, a minimum number of ranks in one or more skills, or anything else required in order to take the feat. This entry is absent if a feat has no prerequisite. A feat may have more than one prerequisite.

Benefit: What the feat enables the character (“you” in the feat description) to do. If a character has the same feat more than once, its benefits do not stack unless indicated otherwise in the description.

Normal: What a character who does not have this feat is limited to or restricted from doing. If not having the feat causes no particular drawback, this entry is absent.

Special: Additional unusual facts about the feat.
