Legendary Wrestler - Grappler Archetype for 5E Barbarian

Suggested Price $2.50

Watch the animated video guide of the Legendary Wrestler archetype here:

Aeons ago, when giants warred against dragons, small folks caught in the flames of their war were constantly threatened by the possibility of extinction. Their survival, as evidenced by the great nations of, elves, dwarves, men and the myriad, was nothing short of a miracle.

That miracle, loremasters investigating cave paintings throughout Faerun had discovered, came in the form of Garnox the Half-Orc and Vindrel the Half-Elf. Legendary figures forgotten through time by the civilized folks.

Only the bold and foolhardy walks the path of the legendary wrestler. Inspired by esoteric tales of primordial heroes, they sought to achieve their own immortality by replicating magnificent feats of strength and guile.

Wrestle giants and make them kiss the ground. Pluck Dragons from the sky and snap their necks on jagged rocks. With a bit of cunning, legendary wrestlers can perform outrageous feats to make playthings out of their enemies and assist their allies achieve greatness.

Despite the bombast, this archetype is not focused on dealing massive damages. It is a defender role that leverages existing grappling mechanics and prone condition. Various sources, such as the Player’s Handbook and Sword Coast Adventurer’s Guide have been used as consideration to balance the features.

This product contains:
  • Over 14 pages of contents in full colours
  • The lore of Garnox & Vindrel
  • Arts illustrating the archetype’s features
  • Guidance on playing Garnox & Vindrel as NPCs
  • 7 Stat blocks for NPCs in different stages of their career

Question: If the Air Superiority wrestler is on a creature whilst it is falling, do they too take fall damage?

Is there going to be a version 2 of this like a post criticism edit? because I love the concept so much it's exactly what I want as fighting style, but I'm a newbie DM and I don't know if this Archetype is too strong or too weak.

As mentioned in the pages, the Legendary Wrestler is a powerful battlefield controller, but is only a mediocre damage dealer. The DM I tested it with find the Legendary Wrestlers to be completely annoying to face, but other players like it because it keeps them safe from harm.

I can imagine that players who love to deal major amount of damage wouldn't be too interested in this archetype.

Also, as you can imagine, the Legendary Wrestler wouldn't be very effective when facing incorporeal creatures like ghosts and most elementals.

Rules Edition(s)
Original electronic
Scanned image
These products were created by scanning an original printed edition. Most older books are in scanned image format because original digital layout files never existed or were no longer available from the publisher.

For PDF download editions, each page has been run through Optical Character Recognition (OCR) software to attempt to decipher the printed text. The result of this OCR process is placed invisibly behind the picture of each scanned page, to allow for text searching. However, any text in a given book set on a graphical background or in handwritten fonts would most likely not be picked up by the OCR software, and is therefore not searchable. Also, a few larger books may be resampled to fit into the system, and may not have this searchable text background.

For printed books, we have performed high-resolution scans of an original hardcopy of the book. We essentially digitally re-master the book. Unfortunately, the resulting quality of these books is not as high. It's the problem of making a copy of a copy. The text is fine for reading, but illustration work starts to run dark, pixellating and/or losing shades of grey. Moiré patterns may develop in photos. We mark clearly which print titles come from scanned image books so that you can make an informed purchase decision about the quality of what you will receive.
Original electronic format
These ebooks were created from the original electronic layout files, and therefore are fully text searchable. Also, their file size tends to be smaller than scanned image books. Most newer books are in the original electronic format. Both download and print editions of such books should be high quality.
