Excerpts: EPG Feats
Eberron Player's Guide

In today's Eberron Player's Guide preview, we present new heroic tier feats, including dragonmarked feats.

The Eberron Player's Guide provides both generic feats and feats oriented toward the setting.

Some feats in this section have the "Dragonmark" expression. These feats are associated with Eberron's dragonmarks. A character can have only one such dragonmarked feat. Each nonaberrant dragonmark allows you to master certain rituals as if you had the Ritual Caster feat. To use one of these rituals, you must still acquire the ritual and master it, and your level must still equal or exceed the ritual's level. Your DM can expand the list of rituals as he or she deems appropriate.
