Needs flavor text? I mean I guess, not every feat in the phb has a fluffy intro. Was more focused on the mechanical side of the fence after I hammered out the concepts. Also the advantage to saves that was removed, that was to deal with things like monster abilities that are save based and the bondage ball (idk what its called, but its a magic item from the DMG).--Gr7mm Bobb (talk) 22:07, 2 February 2017 (MST)

Well, every feat that has a bulleted list of benefits has some brief flavor description. The ones that don't like Defensive Duelist and Savage Attacker have a single benefit and are in paragraph form. So to match the player's handbook, that's why I keep adding "needs flavor".
As for the saving throw, you never make a Strength saving throw to "break restrains, damage an object, or win a contest of strength". The actions you listed are all Strength checks, so that's why I removed the saving throw. If you meant to include other effects, you can add the saving throw back and add those too. Careful not to grant advantage on ALL Strength saving throws, though. :) --Carcabob (talk) 12:20, 3 February 2017 (MST)
The Save portion of the final bullet was to function against monsters and spells that specifically bind or constrict someone. Some creeps use saves as the opposed roll instead of checks.--Gr7mm Bobb (talk) 18:57, 14 January 2018 (MST)
How's my revision? As a side note, this feat looks crazy if you also take the Shield Master Feat! It actually sounds really awesome without being gamebreaking. --Carcabob (talk) 11:59, 15 January 2018 (MST)
Seem's alright for the most part. Though someone else may disagree with me. ConcealedLight (talk) 12:21, 15 January 2018 (MST)
@Carcabob Looks pretty solid in my book bud. Thanks for the help. EDIT, I did a minor word tweak for push mechanic. To allow for the knock-down + 5ft push OR total 10ft shove to be possible. Its part of my orignial intent, but I was afraid it was lost when my admittly horrid phrasing was altered for clarity.--Gr7mm Bobb (talk) 16:34, 15 January 2018 (MST)
The problem with the wording now, though, is if you use shove to knock them prone, saying "an additional 5 feet" doesn't make much sense, as you're not pushing them at all normally. I'll try tweaking it again. --Carcabob (talk) 10:12, 16 January 2018 (MST)
Fair enough, looks good.--Gr7mm Bobb (talk) 22:28, 16 January 2018 (MST)
My dear sir i feel like this is is a great feat but i feel like a prerequisite is needed like ´Strength 13 or higher´.--Erlek Thunder weaver (talk | contribs | email) 06:14, 31 May 2018 (MDT)
I am not sure, it maybe could. On the topic of it having a prerequisite, besides the +1 Strength the rest of the feat feels like it should have a Strength prerequisite. On the other hand, PC's who take half-feats which provide ability score increases likely already have a high ability score so the prerequisite is likely unneeded.--Blobby383b (talk) 17:20, 31 May 2018 (MDT)
