I'm currently playing a luck-based character in a mixed DnD 3.5/PF setting. I'm thinking of investing in the leadership feat, but I'm worried about a few abilities I have. My character has three different abilities that allow for him to avoid death: Fearless Destiny, Tempting Fate, and Fate's Favored (a class capstone, not the PF trait).
Each of these abilities ensure that if I were to die, instead I am placed at -9 and stabilized. This allows me to help my party in very dangerous situations and still survive catastrophic failure (in most cases).
How would this affect leadership? Could my "death" make cohorts consider me a failure?
