Path of the Primordial Predator (5e Subclass)[edit]

Barbarian Subclass

Restriction: Lizardfolk Only[edit]

Only lizardfolk can follow the Path of the Primordial Predator. The primordial predator fills a particular niche in lizardfolk society and culture. Serving as an avatar sent by Semuanya when a major crisis threatens lizardfolk communities on a massive scale, such as in the event of climate change or a major invasion of hostile forces.

Your DM can lift this restriction to better suit the campaign. The restriction exists for the Forgotten Realms. It might not apply to your DM's setting or your DM's version of the Realms.

Avatar of Semuanya[edit]

At 3rd level, while raging you have resistance to all damage except psychic damage. As an avatar of Semuanya, your thick scaly hide shrugs off trauma allowing you to regenerate wounds. At the start of each of your turns, you regain hit points equal to 5 + your Constitution modifier if you have no more than half of your hit points left. You don't gain this benefit if you have 0 hit points.

Feeding Frenzy[edit]

At 3rd level, by hastily devouring the corpse of a beast, humanoid, dragon, giant, monstrosity, plant, or fey creature that has been dead for no more than an hour, you regain your full hit points. You must finish a long rest to regain the use of this feature.

Bite Force[edit]

At 6th level, your Bite feature becomes deadlier, increasing its base damage to 1d8 + your Strength modifier. Additionally, your Bite attack scores a critical hit on a roll of 19 or 20.

Superior Adaption[edit]

Beginning at 10th level, your indomitable will to survive has pushed you to transcend your own physical capability. You have ascended past your role of serving as the avatar of a sole deity. Just as Semuanya is a fragment of the greater deity Ouroboros the World Serpent, you as Semuanya’s avatar share that lineage with the World Serpent.

You undergo an evolutionary metamorphosis temporarily transforming you into an "Indominus Lizardfolk rex". The physical manifestation of the enigmatic primal spirit Ouroboros and the lizardfolk deity Semuanya blended to form a single entity.

  • You can determine the cosmetic characteristics of the "Indominus Lizardfolk rex" such as its color, scale texture, or any visible appearance; your choices have no effect on its game statistics.
  • After falling unconscious or suffering a death saving throw failure, you take the form of the "Indominus Lizardfolk rex". Your game Statistics are replaced by the Statistics of the "Indominus Lizardfolk rex". You assume the Hit Points of its new form.
  • The transformation lasts until you are calmed by a trusted ally, or until you drop to 0 Hit Points or die. When you revert to your normal form, you return to the number of Hit Points you had before you transformed. You are still unconscious but you are now stable.
  • You choose whether your Equipment falls to the ground in your space, merges into your new form. Your Equipment doesn't change size or shape to match the new form, and any Equipment that the new form can't wear must either fall to the ground or merge with it. Equipment that merges with the form has no Effect until you leave the form.

Once you use this feature, you can’t use it again until you finish a long rest.

Scales of Ouroboros[edit]

At 14th level, your Indominus Lizardfolk rex form further adapts taking on the reactive hide of Ouroboros the World Serpent. After taking damage of any type, the Indominus Lizardfolk rex form can use its reaction to gain immunity to one type of damage taken for 1 hour. You can change this immunity from one damage type taken to another that been taken, as a reaction.
