#1 With a Bullet Point: 6 Jester Feats

Sometimes rules supplements read like the world-setting bible of frustrated novelists. While solid world- building is a useful skill, you don't always need four paragraphs of flavor text to tell you swords are cool, magic is power, shadows are scary, and orcs are savage. Sometimes a GM doesn't have time to slog through a page of history for every magic weapon. Sometimes all that's needed are a few cool ideas, with just enough information to use them in a game. Sometimes, all you need are bullet points.

#1 With A Bullet Point is a line of very short, cheap PDFs each of which gives the bare bones of a set of related options. It may be five spells, six feats, eight magic weapon special abilities, or any other short set of related rules we can cram into about a page. Short and simple, these PDFs are for GMs and players who know how to integrate new ideas into their campaigns without any hand-holding, and just need fresh ideas and the rules to support them. No in-character fiction setting the game world. No charts and tables. No sidebars of explanations and optional rules. Just one sentence of explanation for the High Concept of the PDF, then bullet points.

High Concept: Six feats designed to give characters who wish to act as fools, jesters, jugglers, and harlequins more options more options to use their zany shenanigans while adventuring.

The six feats included are:

  • Combat Juggling: You can keep items airborne by juggling, making them available when you need them.
  • Distract: You can keep someones attention, even when they dont want you to.
  • Hideous Humor: Your comedy has a cruel streak that translates well to magic.
  • Play the Fool: You can look like a complete idiot, at a professional level.
  • Quick Ready: You can quickly draw, put away, and swap equipment.
  • Tools of the Trade: You know how to get the most out of alchemical objects commonly used by jesters and other performers.
