Pugilist Subclass Barbarian

Suggested Price $1.00

A new interpretation of the urban fighter. The pugilist is a barbarian that transformed their entire body into a weapon. 

After attempting to create an entire class for the pugilist, I quickly realized that it fit much better as a barbarian subclass. The pugilist gains a number of martial abilities as well as specialized moves that are based on real-world fighting techniques.

I had a lot of fun mixing real world and fantasy but this material is relatively new and still needs to be play-tested. Documents may be updated at a later date.

Hi! I had a question about the wording in this and was looking for some clarification, in the text for the power attacks it states "Many of your Power Attacks are made with disadvantage unless you make them a reckless attack, leaving you open for a counter..." does this wording mean that reckless attacking with these power attacks would be a regular attack roll or one with advantage? Thanks in advance!

Thanks for the question! I meant to add a note there to better explain this. Power Attacks are made with disadvantage but making them reckless would cancel that disadvantage out. Rules as written, you could never make any power attack that relies an attack roll with advantage. Of course, many DM's rule that advantage and disadvantage are stack-able, which would be pretty powerful for this sub-class.

In short, making a Reckless Power Attack is a regular attack and NOT at advantage.

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.
