Really cool subclass Blobby. I like the 3rd level feature a lot for the mark, and the next turn it takes effect. Its different but doesn't infringe on any 5e philosophy. I hope someone can play test the second part of it because the unlimited uses may or may not be a fair feature. Wouldn't change it though unless it is a known problem. When the curse lasts for the duration of the rage, are creatures automatically taking the curse die damage at the start of their turn? Forsaken Body -very nice. Much flavor here. And Invoker. I think it is really cool and would like to know how it test plays because I don't know how good it is. I think it is really good, but actual gameplay use will it be as good as it sounds?
Great subclass though. I'd really like to play this. Kudos. BigShotFancyMan (talk) 17:41, 7 September 2018 (MDT)

Thanks for the complements and thoughts subclass bigshot. To answer your question about curse damage every turn, yes creatures who are hit by your attacks take the Curse Damage Die at the start of your turn until you finish raging. This is of course limited by how often you can keep your rage active in fights, your number of rages, the hard 1 minute limit on rage, and other ect. things(spread out targets, disengaging on cursed targets). On a different topic though, as a whole, I feel this subclass ended up being quite unique in that it feels like you control the fight around you while dealing a decent amount of spread damage onto multiple creatures which is a thing most barbarians lack. I agree that some playtesting may be required to see how it plays, but atm, it feels like everything messes together really well so I hope that no drastic changes will be needed. --Blobby383b (talk) 04:54, 8 September 2018 (MDT)
I hadn't considered their ability to curse multiple targets. I think that is my only balance concern and look forward to know how that mechanic plays out. I might try to NPC this tomorrow if I got a spot for it. (I'm gonna HP the crap out of the dude so that curse can be applied NUMEROUS times mwahahaha) BigShotFancyMan (talk) 09:23, 8 September 2018 (MDT)
