Note from Dead_weasel...
Although I recognize that Dragon magazine has published a great number of alternative class features as well, I have opted to leave these out (excepting useful links to them in the Miscellany), since they are often disallowed are more difficult to access than normal WotC sourcebooks. You are welcome to discuss or inquire about them in the thread, and likewise to discuss or inquire about subjects related to alternative class features.
Screw that! Who wants to help find all the ACFs from Dragon Magazine? I'll be working on this project over the next couple weeks. But finals is this week so don't expect much to fast. Wink

Here's the full list of free online ACFs from the Guide to Free D&D. I think they're all listed, but it's nice to be able to look at them.

For what it's worth, the Mystic Ranger link goes further into the original thread where it was posted up. Might want to snag it, in case it gets lost, since the format the poster placed it in shouldn't violate copyright.

Sometimes, their tits (3.5) get enhancements (houserules), but that doesn't mean people don't like nice tits.

I've got a few updates to make yet. Fixed a bunch more formatting things... the old one annoyingly did all the paragraph separation through sblock tags, so I've been trawling through solid walls of text to space things back out. Also corrected "raptorian" to "Raptoran" which is one of those little things that irritates me far more than it should. Some of the entries with web links also lost the links somehow, so I'll have to add them back in.

Will hopefully finish that up tomorrow.

One that is almost always missed is Kobold Endurance.  If a Kobold gains Endurance as a bonus feat (such as from Ranger 3), he can gain Kobold Endurance instead, which counts as Endurance for fulfilling prerequisites.  The reason this is always missed as an option is because it is called out in the feat description itself and not in the Kobold Ranger area.

Mind saying where Kobold Endurance is or what it does? If it's better than Endurance, that's great to hear.

Races of the Dragon.  +4 bonus on all Str and Con checks (not skill checks), Swim checks to resist nonlethal damage, Fort saves to resist nonlethal damage from environment, Fort saves to resist suffocation, and Grapple checks to escape a grapple or pin.  Oh, and the standard "sleep in Medium armor without penalty".

The Grapple check bonus is handy for a race that really doesn't do so well in those.

Very nice collection. Thank you for putting this together, I often find myself gutting a base class and filling in ACFs according to my purposes.

An addition to the Goliath Rogue sub levels: They can eventually get Improved Mettle of Mountains when a non-Goliath rogue would normally gain Improved Evasion. This ability effectively makes them immune to a big list of deadly effects because they are automatically treated as if they made the fort save. Also Mettle of Mountains only works with things requiring a Fortitude save, not a Will save, which differs from normal mettle (Although getting improved mettle would be incredible).

I don't know of anywhere where just an "Improved Mettle" ability is presented. So as far as I know there are no rules present for what happens when you gain mettle twice, and therefore none that suggest it improves. My DM treated it just as if we'd gained Improved Evasion we would gain Improved Mettle, but that was his own houseruling.
