The epic rules are the means by which a character continues his or her adventuring career. Added in Hordes of the Underdark, these rules cover levels 21 to 40.
Characters become epic characters once they have gained 21 levels. At this point any feats can be taken from the epic feats list.
To become epic with a specific class the character must have 21 levels for a base class, or 11 levels for a prestige class. However, the 11th level of a prestige class cannot be taken unless the character has a total of 20 levels already.
Harper scouts are only able to attain five levels and may never become epic in the Harper scout class.
Epic bonus featsEdit
Epic classes gain regular bonus epic feats which can be selected from a list specific to that class.
If a class has bonus feats pre-epic then it will be possible to select epic feats if the character as a whole is epic.
e.g. A character with 9 levels of ranger but a total of 21 levels. When selecting a 10th level of ranger, the character will be able to choose an epic feat from the epic ranger feat list in addition to the usual favored enemy feat options.
