Accursed - A Martial Archetype for Fighters

Accursed - A Martial Archetype for Fighters


Through the machinations of some outside malevolent force, their own greed, or sheer bad luck the Accursed wander the realms they inhabit. With hate as their master and slaughter as their companion, these baleful warriors tear through battlefields, decimating all who stand before them, even should they be companions of theirs so blinded are they by their malice for life. Worse still, survivers of their rampages will often be driven mad by the terrible gloom that permeates the air around them. The Accursed are often seen as an ill omen, for nothing but death and misfortune follow in their wake, though some Accursed may perservere and use their newfound power to achieve good ends, so long as they can maintain a grip on their sanity.

love this subclass and it helped in fleshing out a bbeg for my own campaign though i am a bit confused by the seethe mechanic. I understand that when taking damage you get extra damage to your weapon based on the triggering damage but my confusion is if this effect stacks or resets.

the example given is that a 5LV spellcaster hits with fire bolt and then grants you an extra 2d10 damage but what if before your turn a fighter hits you with a long sword two handed would the damage be upped to 3d10, stay at 2d10 or reset to a single d10

aside from this confusion love the class as it definitely has incredible roleplay potential and look forward to maybe being able to play it myself one day

I'm glad that you're enjoying the subclass, and i'm sorry the wording wasn't more clear. Let me explain.
Seethe adds damage dice to your next attack from the most recent source of damage you took from a creature. As listed in your example, the dice would be reset to 1d10.

As it is written currently the subclass can be lost to any 5th level caster with remove curse. It can even be lost to a well intentioned party member.
At the capstone it will take a 17th level caster to remove the curse, but it kills you. Which is a bit better I guess?

It should be stated earlier on that at least a higher level remove curse is needed to be effective, or better yet remove the "The Curse acts as if it has been cast on your character with a 9th level Bestow Curse Spell" and state the curse is too ingrained in you.

I love the inspiration for this subclass however the first subclass feature trips it's running start.

As it's looking right now I wouldnt want to play this subclass in a campiagn setting, however i might consider it during a one shot.

You make a good point. I'll throw this back in the editor and add a caveat.
The idea was for the removal of the curse to be a legitimate threat to the character, however as you've said any 5th level caster could remove the curse, let alone a big-bad caster.

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.
