From the introduction:
Greetings, and thanks for taking the time to read the Netbook of Feats. This project is the result of a lot of hard work by all our contributors, reviewers, editors, the Fantasy Netbook Community Council, and myself. It represents thousands of hours of hard work and boundless creativity. We sincerely hope that you enjoy it and find something here that enhances your game or simply entertains.
The Netbook of Feats is one of many Netbooks produced by the fine folks at the Fantasy Netbook Community Council. Indeed the Netbook of feats is the one that started the organization in late 2000. In the time since then it has changed a lot, and will continue to change. The Fantasy Netbook Community Council is a fan based, volunteer organization committed to publishing fan works in a semi-professional format. We work with authors to refine and improve their work, so that it meets or exceeds the standards set forth by professional game publishers.
The Netbook of Feats is published using Wizard of the Coast's Open Gaming License (OGL). This legal document (found in the legal section of the NBOF) protects the work in this document so that it remains free for you to use in almost any way imaginable. Basically the material in the NBOF that is designated as Open Gaming Content (OGC), which is almost everything in the NBOF, can be used in any publication, amateur or professional without any restrictions, except that you must credit the original author of the work. To use our feats you needn't pay us, or ask permission, or sign any contracts, the only thing you must do is include the OGL in any document you use the material in, and you must abide by the rules of the OGL.
We hope that in time, the quality, and quantity of feats in this netbook become a kind of standard resource for d20 players. We will continually refine and add to the NBOF so long as someone is willing to carry it forward. Already we have more feats under the Netbook than have been published by any other single professional publisher. If you like what your read here, please spread the word about us and share the Netbook with as many of your friends as possible. And if you are feeling creative, please send us your own feats so that you can join our growing family of authors.
