Modern20 doesn't usually have feat trees. Most feats have at most one prerequisite feat. This is part of the way the game makes generating characters easier. Voyage of Discovery's magic feats though, are going to qualify as feat trees, with 2+ feats required for advanced magics.

Sounds cool. I was glad to see you took them from the M20 core. But I could totally see how they could be right for a setting.

didn't Fantasci20 have something similar with it's magic feats?

Yeah Fantasci might have had some.

To Joey, yeah, I think most of the time feat trees are not necessary. They just slow down character generation, especially for the GM creating higher level NPCs.

For a spellcaster though, I think a little more complexity is ok.
