To celebrate the release of the Complete Advanced Feats, here is a brand-new feat inspired by one of the classes in the Pathfinder RPG Advanced Players Guide.

Paths to Power (Part 1 of 2)

Kirchner, Nacktes Madchen mit ZweigschattenThe pursuit of power. The quest for immortality. There are many paths to power, and some are well trodden while some are not. The fellhazen and the runecarved are two lesser-travelled roads for the heroic tier. Each offers a distinct path to the paragon tier and beyond.
