101 Renegade Class Feats is a rules supplement for the Pathfinder system that introduces 101 new feats for renegade classes. These classes include the Armiger, Guttermage, and Dragon Rider along with 11 other classes. All of the classes covered in this supplement have been developed by 3rd party publishers under the OGL.  While these feats are designed for a group of classes that tend to fill very specialized roles in adventuring parties, many of them can be used with little or no adaptation for classes that grant the prerequisite abilities necessary to qualify for the desired feat.

CONTENT

This 21 page supplement is brimming with useful and interesting feats that will greatly enhance the playability of 14 different 3rd party publisher classes that don’t normally get as much focused “love” as the core classes. Each feat is delivered in the standard feat format that most gamers should be accustomed to.

OVERALL

Rite Publishing is doing their best to corner the market when it comes to outstanding rules supplements. Each of the feats in this book is useful, provided the character meets the requirements. The entries are properly formatted and the content is second to none.

RATINGS

Publication Quality: 9 out of 10
Mark Hyzers’ cover art is detailed, intriguing, and looks amazing in black & white! Instead of pushing a color cover with questionable art; Rite Publishing made the right call in sticking with an outstanding black & white print. In past reviews I have dinged some of Rite Publishing’s products for questionable choices in art and the placement of that art, this supplement bucks that trend. While I didn’t completely love all of the interior art work, it was all well-synched with the class the art represented.  This supplement did a good job of referencing the source material for which these feats were developed to support. I did not give this product 10 out of 10 because it lacked a table of contents. All of the class entries were in alphabetical order but when there is a rules question during game-play, especially during combat, being able to quickly find the material you need is a must.

Mechanics: 10 out of 10
101 Renegade Class Feats has done something very complex and made it look simple. In typical Rite Publishing fashion they have taken classes that have some unique and occasionally specialized features and developed well-balanced feats that will satisfy players and GMs alike. Many of these feats made me want to play some of the classes that they supported.

Value Add: 10 out of 10
At the regular price, 101 Renegade Class Feats lists for $6.99 (USD), RPGNow currently has it on sale for $5.99 (USD). Any time you add a minimum of 7 feats to 14 different classes for $6.99 (USD), you have value!  None of the feats in this book are overpowered and they are all written in a way that will facilitate easy integration into a Pathfinder game. Developing feats for classes developed by 3rd party publishers is a bold and innovative move that provides synergistic value to this supplement as well as the source material the feats were developed for.

Overall: 10 of 10
Buy this product. The feats contained in this supplement are well-balanced, well-written, and useful. Rite Publishing shows a great understanding of other 3rd party publisher’s material and intent. Hats off to Rite Publishing for supporting fellow 3rd party publishers with 101 feats that are well worth the price of admission.
