When creating a feature with options in Homebrew, it is possible to mark an option "Is Granted", indicating that it is simply granted at its level without the player having to choose it.
However, this currently only works if the option also has a prerequisite option chosen from a previous feature.
One fix for this would be to remove the ability to select "Is Granted" for an option that does not have a prerequisite, since it's currently an invalid combination.
What I would prefer to see is for Is Granted to function as expected without a prerequisite, as this would allow a feature to have an options list where one or more options are granted automatically. For example, "Starting at 3rd level you have impeccable style. You learn the Amazing Dress Sense style, plus two other styles of your choice. You learn two additional styles at 10th level." etc.
Currently the only way to achieve this is to add the "option" to a feature's description and modifiers/actions, but this is a clunky way to do it due to the way that features with options are presented in the character sheet, otherwise it needs to be ripped out into its own feature entirely. It would be a lot neater if automatic bonuses could be grouped under granted options.
