Have you ever admired a foe's strength and power, wanted to be able to harness its abilities for your own ends? When David Adams approached us to commission this ravenous barbarian subclass, his answer to that question was a resounding "YES!"

Outlandish Adventure Productions, commissioned by David Adams, presents:

The Path of the Liver Eater, a barbarian subclass that harvests the essence of fallen creatures to channel the creatures' powers through their rage. Based on the real-life practices of ancient warriors who would consume the heart or liver of powerful foes to absorb their strength and courage, a Liver Eater can peform a ritual at the end of each combat to harvest an essence by gorging themself on a vital component of a fallen creature. When they enter their rage, a Liver Eater can expend one of their stored essences to gain powers based on the type of creature from which the essence was harvested.

Did you defeat a dragon? Use its essence to gain a breath weapon! Slay a monstrosity? Grow an extra appendage that you can use to interact with objects and make extra attacks! Smite a fiend? Use its power to summon a fiendish minion of your own! Rules are included for every creature type save for construct and undead, which lack the vitality required for you to harvest an essence.

Also included in this subclass supplement is an optional rule for realms in which harvesting the essence of, and thereby eating, humanoids is taboo. This rule provides additional abilities for villainous player or non-player characters that are willing to make the trade-off of reducing their own life force. Another optional rule included is for "Legendary" essences, in which defeating a powerful being or BBEG can be rewarded with a unique essence that you can use to gain the incredibly powerful abilities of that creature for a single rage.

We hope you enjoy the Path of the Liver Eater as much as we, our players, and David Adams do! We'd love to hear your feedback, so please send us any questions or comments you have. Also, if you perceive any balance issues, please let us know and we will address them as quickly as we can.

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.
