Spell focus

Type of feat: general (available every three level-ups)
Prerequisite: ability to cast first-level spells
Required for: greater spell focus, arcane defense

Specifics: A character with this feat is adept in a certain school of magic, granting a +2 bonus to spell save DC for all spells cast from that school.

Use: automatic. This feat may be selected multiple times, but the effects do not stack. It applies to a different school of magic in each case. Gnomes receive spell focus (illusion) for free at level 1.


  • Spell focus does not apply to spells that are granted as special abilities.
  • After player chooses Greater Spell Focus of the same spell school, the chosen Spell Focus will be replaced by the greater version and disappear from the Feats list.
  • Spontaneous casters (bards and sorcerers) can take this feat without being able to cast first level spells as long as their class level qualifies for at least 0 level one spell slots (that is, even if their casting ability is too low to actually cast a level one spell).

Builder notes[]

Item feat: Yes, except transmutation (which can be added with custom content).

Custom content notes[]

Removable: yes

Reusable: yes

Script: hardcoded

  • Spell focus in transmutation can be added to iprp_feats.2da to get the missing spell school as an item property.
  • A custom class must have this feat in their feat list, or that class will not be able to select it as a general feat.
