Prerequisites: How do they have to be met?
« on: November 09, 2012, 10:44:56 AM »
We had just a little rules discussion:
If an expert class requires a certain feat, do you have to take this feat at the latest one level before you take the expert class level, or is it enough if you gain the feat on the same level  (e.g. you delay the expert level until lvl.6)?

The way the Career Level rules on p.27 are written suggests that the table 1.4 benefits (feats, interests etc.) are gained first and then you advance a class level. So yes, you could gain a prerequisite feat and then an expert class level at the same career level. That's how I read it...

That is correct.

Thanks, that would have been my interpretation too (sadly not that of my GM :-\ )

Well this is when you show him the first page with the writing credits than show him Alex Flagg's post right above yours.

That is not to say he isn't welcome to run his game his way.  However it is how it was intended for the game to run.
