You have learned to taunt and goad your opponent into attacking you using threats and ridicule.

Prerequisites
Persuasive

Benefit
You can make Bluff and Intimidate checks to make creatures respond to you with hostility. No matter which skill you use, antagonizing a creature takes a standard action that does not provoke attacks of opportunity, and has a DC of 10 + targets level or hit dice + targets wisdom modifier and bonuses against mind affecting effects and compulsion effects. You cannot make this check against a target that does not understand you or have an intelligence score of 3 or lower. Before making these checks you may make a sense motive check (same DC as above) to gain an insight bonus on these checks equal to your wis modifier until the end of your next turn. The benefits you gain from this feat depend upon which skill you use. This is a mind-affecting, compulsion effect.

Intimidate: The creature flies into a rage. On its next turn it must focus all its actions against you by either targeting you with a ranged attack, spell, melee attack or combat maneuver or otherwise trying to harm you in a direct way. Catching the creature in an area of effect spell qualifies as targeting the creature. The effect ends as soon as the target has performed one of the actions above against you. A barbarian or other character with the rage ability affected by this feat must use this ability if able to if successfully antagonized in this way, and must maintain its rage for the duration it is antagonized if able to.

Bluff: You fluster your enemy. For the next minute the target takes a -2 penalty on all attack rolls made against creatures other than you and has a 10% spell failure on all spells that do not target you or include you in its area of effect. A barbarian or other character with the rage ability affected by this feat must use this ability if able to if successfully antagonized in this way and must maintain its rage for the duration it is antagonized if able to.

Author's Note: This is an attempt to fix the horribly broken Antagonize feat from Ultimate Magic.
