It's one thing for the OL to say 'no, you don't get to feat, here's a card', but it's another thing entirely to have the dice say it.

In that vein, what Kunzite is talking about from our last campaign, poor Grisban missed on his Heroic Feat so often the taverns were alight with laughter about the folly of "Grisban the Blind" and his heroically poor aim.
