Path of the Enraged Brawler Features[edit]

Brawling Style

At the 3rd level, You have chosen to leave your weapons behind and start to begin your training as a heavy fisted brawler.

  • Aggressive: As a bonus action, you can move up to your speed toward an enemy of your choice that you can see or hear. You must end this move closer to the enemy than you started.
  • Heavy Smashing Fist: When you take the attack action on your turn, you can replace your unarmed strikes with a smash attack. The damage for this attack is 1d6 + your strength Modifier, if you are raging it is 1d8 + your strength Modifier. You can do this a number of times equal to your Proficiency bonus, before needing a long rest to replenish uses. The damage for this attack increases as you gain levels as shown in the table above.

Whether you hit or miss your smash attack, your spending a use for attempting it.


Burly Strength

Starting at the 6th level, You have gained immense strength through strong man training. You have the following benefits from this training:

  • Deep Bludgeoning: While raging, your fists count as Magical for the purpose of bypassing resistance and Immunities to non-magical bludgeoning damage. This could be flavored as brute strength bypassing non-magic resistance to bludgeoning.
  • Brawlers Grip: Your carrying capacity (including maximum load and maximum lift) is doubled, and you have advantage on Strength checks made to push, pull, lift, or break objects.


Unstoppable Force

Starting at the 10th level, your constitution against even magical dangers have been enhanced. Casters don't seem to be able to alter your state of mind. While raging, You can use your constitution saving throw in place of another saving throw. For effects that can Paralyze, Charm, or frighten you.

You can do this 2 times, before needing a short rest to replenish uses.


To Angry To Die

Starting at the 14th level, Your Mighty strength and Granite chin have gotten you this far. Through sheer brute force, willpower, and undisputed rage, you always seem ready to beat down your enemy when you get back up from the brink of defeat.

When you are reduced to 0hp and not killed outright, and use your Barbarian's Relentless Rage or the Half-Orc's Relentless Endurance abilities, or you roll a 20 on the d20 for a death saving throw. Instead of being brought back to 1hp, you instead are given hp equal to your Constitution score(Minimum of 1hp).


Fists of the Titans (Optional)

(Replaces level 20 Barbarian ability "Primal Champion")

When reaching level 20, your fists have gained the might of unparalleled power. Once per long rest, you may enter a special form of rage that enhances your fists. While in this rage, your unarmed strikes made using your fists bypass all resistance to bludgeoning damage. To gain this benefit you must attack using your fists. Grapples, kicks, elbow strikes or any other body part do not gain this effect. Even though your barbarian level table allows you to use your normal rages an unlimited amount of times, this rage can only be used once per long rest.
