Happy Solstice – Winter Seasonal Feats

21 December, 2010

Wishing all a Happy Solstice!  Here are some winter-themed feats for your use:

Aspirant of Winter [Fey-touched, Winter]

You have been seeking or have been touched by the Court of Winter, giving you the cold strength of winter and a strong ties to the snow shrouded.  You are armored by your season.

Prerequisites: Not aligned with any of the other Season Courts, Charisma 10.

Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to saves against diseases and poisons.  Your perception and stealth checks gain a bonus of +2 in any area that is primarily composed of ice or snow and you gain a +2 bonus to survival checks to get along in the wild.  Extreme cold never prevents you from healing or sleeping.

During the Winter Season you gain 1 extra hit point per three levels/hit dice you possess.

Special: Those who can sense the fey and the Otherworldly realms with notice something off about you.  You suffer a -2 penalty to social interaction checks with those aligned with the other Seasonal Courts.

Courtier of Winter [Fey-touched, Winter]

Your ties with the Court of Winter have been strengthened or formalized, you walk with the gifts of winter guiding you, confident that the power of ice, shadow and snow is aligned with you.

Prerequisites: Aspirant of Winter, Charisma 13.

Benefit: You gain a +2 bonus to saves against cold, ice and the abilities of the Undead.  You gain a +1 bonus to social skills checks involving members of the opposite sex.  You never slip on ice or snow.

Once during each Winter season, you may reroll a failed save with a +3 bonus.

Special: Those who can sense the fey and the Otherworldly realms with notice that you are tied to the Court of Winter.

Notes: Compare and contrast with the Seasonal feats of Spring.


  1. I like these feats, primarily because they link the character’s abilities to what is going on in the setting and situation around him. It’s a little extra reason to keep track of the season, the weather, holy days in the setting, and so on – when otherwise, the RAW give no reason whatsoever to do so for the most part.

    • Thank you. Anything which helps the player envision the campaign world and the character’s place in it is a positive thing.
