In addition to the standard types of feats, Racial Feats and Starmoot Feats are introduced in the Castlemourn Campaign setting.
The races of Umbrara have unique abilities, some of which are difficult to control. Racial feats represent the character’s learned discipline over a racial ability. Racial feats always have a racial prerequisite.
Starmoot Feats represent a strong connection between the character and the constellation of his birth, which is determined by a conjunction of the wandering constellation Aumounel and one of Mournra’s nine fixed constellations. Mournans refer to constellations as nightlanterns and the combination of two constellations as a starmoot. These are described in detail in Chapter Three: Religion & Astrology. Unless stated otherwise, Starmoot Feats can be taken after first level..
