View Full Version : For Barbarians Who Like Punching Things [Pathfinder Archetype] {PEACH}

Brawling Berserker
Your rage is son great that you refrain from weaponry and instead use the weapons the Gods were kind enough to give you: Your fists, your feet, and your (generally) thick skull.

Who says Monks are the only ones who can hit people?

What you give up: Proficiencies (all of them), Trap Sense, and Uncanny Dodge (Including all improvements)

What you get: Proficiency with Unarmed Strike, Brass Knuckles, Cestus, and Gauntlets, Improved Unarmed Strike as a Bonus Feat, Treated as a Monk equal to your Barbarian Levels for Unarmed Strike Progression and for applying Unarmed Strike to weapons that cover your fists

Special: If you take the Brawl Rage power, you get Superior Unarmed Strike (Tome of Battle: Book of Nine Swords)) instead of Improved Unarmed Strike

Designer Note: I saw that Barbarian gets almost no love in the Unarmed department. Have the designers never spent time at a bar where some guy gets rowdy and starts a fight? I thus thought it was appropriate for there to be an Archetype for a Raging Fistfighter.

Monk and Barbarian levels should stack for the purposes of unarmed strike damage (the Martial Artist archetype removes the alignment clashes). In addition, they need to keep simple weapon proficiency.
