In 2018, my brother and I published a PDF version of our Pathfinder feat tree, designed to encapsulate and expand upon the modifications suggested in our original blog post. Entitled The Elephant in the Room: Feat Taxes in Pathfinder, the document features a re-imagined version of the entire feat section found in the Pathfinder Roleplaying Game Core Rulebook plus some appendices to aid with usability. To our bewilderment, the document has now been downloaded tens of thousands of times and has proven to be one of the most popular Pathfinder homebrew rulesets in the world.
Three years later, we are releasing a small update to the document that is centered around a trio of key changes.
- First, we have corrected numerous errors in the document, mostly related to typos and layout.
- Second, we have updated the back page ad-sheet to include some projects that we are particularly excited about.
- Finally, we have shifted the hosting of the document from this website to the Mammoth Island Itch.io page as a pay-what-you-want download.
This is intended to be the final iteration of The Elephant in the Room, and we currently don’t plan on implementing further changes beyond correcting glaring mistakes. However, we may have some news regarding a vanity run of print copies, which we felt would be a nice way to cap off nearly ten years of pachyderm-inspired Pathfinder.
