You gain the following benefits while you are unarmed and you aren’t wearing medium or heavy armor or wielding a shield:

  • You can choose Strength or Dexterity for your attack and damage rolls.
  • You can roll a d6 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike. This die changes as you gain gentlemen levels, as shown in the fisticuffs bonus column of the gentlemen table.
