Adaptation Statistic Feats

The following are feats that describe a character's base performance. These are things that add to a base statistic itself rather than modifying statistic mathematics or adding to a specific skill bonus. These directly affect the statistics themselves and will cover more than one skill or roll.

*The bonuses granted by the Adaptation Statistic Feats are not doubled via the use of Statistic Improvement Feats such as Enhanced Attack Maneuver, Improved Luck, et cetera.

**The Adaptation Statistic Feats that grant you +50 to a Statistic may be taken more than once. Each duplicate requires its own Feat slot.
