Feats >General Feats >

Spell Sponge





Your mystical connection with your spellcasting master attunes you to helpful magical effects.

Prerequisites: Animal companion or familiar, share spells ability.

Benefit: Whenever your master targets you with a spell with a target of “you,” the spell’s duration is doubled as if modified by the Extend Spell metamagic feat. This does not affect spells with a duration of concentration, instantaneous, or permanent, or spells already modified by Extend Spell.

Special: Feats that are meant for familiars can be switched out for a familiar’s default feats (as listed in the familiar’s statistics) if the familiar meets the prerequisites. Such feat replacements must be made when the PC first acquires a new familiar, and-like all new feats from supplemental sources-the new feats should be approved by the GM before being integrated into play.

Editor’s Note

Wait… there’s like only 2 spells in existence then that this applies to… is that right???

No. The use of “harmless” in this instance was an unnecessary complication, since as pointed out, there are only a couple spells that have a target of “You” and are explicitly stated as harmless. Ignore the word “harmless” so that the sentence reads:

Whenever your master targets you with a spell with a target of ‘you,’ the spell’s duration….

This feat plays off the share spells ability possessed by most animal companions and familiars, so it should be applicable with any spell cast upon the animal companion or familiar that can only be cast on that creature because of the share spells ability. So spells that target “You and 1 ally” or “You or creature touched” aren’t fair game, since you could already cast them on the AC/familiar even without share spells.

Note: The clarification has already been applied to the text.
