Creating custom items is always a matter of negotiation and judgment; there are no hard and fast rules.

Yes, you can most definitely have an inside man. I typically enjoy a game where one or two of my players is running an inside man plot. But your question is how to make this work, so I'll expand on that. My rules for the inside man are simple: 1) Your goal has to differ from the villains you are chasing.

It is important to note, in your "recursive Scenario", the wording of your feats. If feat A is a prerequisite for B that is a prerequisite for C, and I have all three of them but then I lose A, will I still be able to use feat C? (since I still have B) if you lose feat A, you cannot use feat B. but you can still use feat C. If feat C is worded ...
