Barbarian: Path of the Reckless Warrior[edit]

The Path of the Reckless Warrior is made of barbarians who face danger without concerns for they own safety. With audacity and bravery, they throw themselves head first on challenges with an "all or nothing" attitude. They are always ready to risk everything in order to succeed in a task. Many find the Reckless Warriors to be unreliable and chaotic, but, when a great risk is imminent, there's anyone better than these barbarians to answer the call to action and take matters on their own hands.

Mortal Blow

Whenever you use your reckless attack while raging, you can chose to forgo your advantage to add 1d4 to the damage of all your attacks made on this round. This bonus increase to 1d6 at 6th level, to 1d8 at 13th level, to 1d10 at 17th level.

Uncalculated Risk

At 6th level, when you make an attack roll, an ability check or saving throw using your Strength or Dexterity, you can use your reaction to use this feature. When using this feature, before you make the roll, but after you know the result, you can roll a d6. If you roll a number between 1-5, you get advantage on your roll. If you roll a 6, you get disadvantage on that roll and lose your immunity to the frightened effect until you complete a long rest. If you roll a 20 in the highest roll, you recover one expended use of this feature.

You can use this reaction a number of times equal to your Constitution modifier, and you regain all expended uses when you finish a long rest.

In addition, you become immune to the frightened condition.

Careless Step

Starting at 10th level, you move around the battlefield without concerns for safety. When you enter a hostile creature's reach during your move, you can cause that creature to use its reaction to attack you. The creature must make a Wisdom saving throw against a DC of 8 + your proficiency bonus + your Strength modifier. If the the target fail, it attacks you and has disadvantage on all attack rolls against targets other than you until the end of your next turn. You have resistance against this attack.


When you reach the 14th level, your carelessness has no limits while raging. For the duration of your rage, when you use your reckless attack, you can choose to add another die of advantage to attacks against you until the beginning of your next turn. If you do so, you gain another advantage die on your own attacks. In addition, when you use your Mortal Blow feature, you can choose to forgo up to two of your advantage dies to add up to two damage dies to your successful attacks.
