Character Creation: Feats

The D20 system is flooded with feats, which are the stepping stones to your character’s superpowers. You can build any feat chain you’d like within the booklist, but if you’d like a little direction, here are 10 pathways a psion could explore.

Bear in mind these lists include psion bonus feats, with the exception of the Wilder Package. A different class selection could wrecking ball the whole operation, unless you choose to play a psychic warrior.

Psychic warriors are the only class who receive more bonus feats than psions; in exchange, their psionic powers (i.e., their magical boom) are comparatively weaker. By contrast, all other psionic classes receive less feats than the psion, and far less than the psychic warrior.

This is why I recommend the psion, especially for this campaign.
