Back on yer feet kid, itís round three!

As we skirt ever close to the final version of the pugilist, this 2nd revised draft includes revisions only slightly less drastic than the ones that took us from the original version to the first revision. This revision solidifies the pugilistís playstyle in a way thatís unique from any other class in 5e and gives them plenty of options to play offense or defense. Whether youíre celebrating St. Valentineís Day today or not, the pugilist is here to pop you right in the kisser!

And a kiss with a fist is better than none, right? (http://sterlingvermin.com/2016/02/13/the-pugilist-2nd-revised-draft/)

For those who want to watch the transformation of the pugilist as its received feedback you can check out the original draft (http://sterlingvermin.com/2016/01/20/the-pugilist-early-draft/) and the first revision (http://sterlingvermin.com/2016/01/31/the-pugilist-revised-draft/). The basic idea of the pugilist was to take the monk class, make it operate on strength instead of dexterity, and remove all the mysticism elements. As I continued to get feedback the pugilist has evolved more and more into its own unique class with its own unique mechanics.
