“The ring is my temple, and the roar of the crowd is my anthem. I am Thunderstruck, the Unyielding Storm, and my fury knows no bounds. Wrestling ain’t just some fancy prancin’ around or tappin’ toes. It’s a raw, primal art, where strength meets skill in a clash of bodies.”

– Thunderstruck, the Unyielding Storm


As a Barbarian following the Path of the Wrestler, you thrive in the chaotic dance of combat. Your body is a weapon, honed through years of training and instinct. The ring is your sanctuary, where you unleash your raw power and aggression. Each grapple and strike is an expression of your untamed spirit, fueled by the cheers of the crowd. In the heat of battle, you embody the primal essence of a warrior, overpowering your opponents with a relentless force that shakes the very foundation of the arena.

Wrestling Savvy

At 3rd level, you gain proficiency in Athletics and Perfomance skills if you don’t already have them.

Wrester’s Performance

Also at 3rd level, you learn wrestling maneuvers that are fueled by special dice called performance dice.

Maneuvers. You learn three wrestler maneuvers of your choice. Many maneuvers enhance an attack in some way. You can use only one maneuver per attack. You learn two additional maneuvers of your choice at 7th, 10th, and 15th level. Each time you learn new maneuvers, you can also replace one maneuver you know with a different one.

Performance Dice. You have four performance dice, which are d6s. A performance die is expended when you use it. You regain all of your expended superiority dice when you finish a short or long rest.

Unarmed Strikes. Your unarmed strikes deal 1d4 bludgeoning damage. The damage increases to 1d6 at 9th level, and 1d8 at 15th level.

Saving Throws. Some of your maneuvers require your target to make a saving throw to resist the maneuver’s effects. The saving throw DC is calculated as follows:

Maneuver save DC = 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength or Charisma modifier (your choice).

Unyielding Wrestler

Starting at 7th level, your proficiency bonus is doubled for any Strength (Athletics) checks you make to grapple a creature, and your unarmed strikes deal an additional amount of damage equal to your Constitution modifier. Additionally, when you successfully grapple a creature, your speed is not halved.

Expert Grappler

Starting at 10th level, your mastery of grappling and wrestling makes it incredibly difficult for creatures to escape your grasp. When you successfully grapple a creature, it has disadvantage on Strength (Athletics) checks or Dexterity saving throws made to escape the grapple.

Ultimate Dominance

At 15th level, your dominance over your foes in close-quarters combat is unmatched. Whenever you successfully maintain a grapple on a creature, it suffers the following additional effects:

  • The grappled creature takes bludgeoning damage equal to your Strength modifier at the start of each of its turns while you maintain the grapple.
  • The grappled creature can’t take reactions.

In addition to these effects, while grappling a creature, you gain the following benefits:

  • You have advantage on all Strength (Athletics) checks made to maintain the grapple.
  • Your AC increases by 1, or 2 if the creature is one size category larger than yourself.

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.
