Prerequisites: Battle Morph, base Will save +6, base attack bonus +5, Power Attack.

HD: d8
Skill points/level: 4 + Int modifier
Class Skills: Climb, Craft, Handle Animal, Intimidate, Jump, Listen, Spot, Survival, Swim, Tumble.

+4|Wild Rage 2/day, Morph Focus

+4|Morph Mastery, Natural Fury, Greater Rage Battle Morph [/table]

Battle Feat (ex): The morpher gains a bonus fighter or monstrous feat in each of its battle morphs. These feats are selected independently, but a morph can only have a feat if it meets all its prerequisites.

Battle Morph as the animorph ability of the same name.

Wild Rage (ex): After taking damage whilst in a battle morph, the morph warrior can choose to enter a rage as a barbarian. They cannot demorph while raging. They can rage once per day at second level, and twice per day at fourth level.

Morph Focus (ex): Each time you gain this ability, choose one of your battle morphs. You gain +1 to all attack and damage rolls with this form's natural weapons, and a +2 bonus on Will saves to control your morph. A natural 1 is not a failure on such saves for this morph.

Morph Mastery (ex): You automatically control all your battle morphs. You may still benefit from the Trust the Eagle feat. In addition, you gain a +2 bonus to damage rolls with natural weapons in battle morphs. This stacks with Morph Focus.

Greater Rage (ex): The benefits from Wild Rage increase to +6 to Strength and Constitution and +3 to Will saves. The penalties are unchanged.

Natural Fury (ex): You can expend one rage usage as a swift action to enter a rage, without the benefit of Greater Rage, in any form, including your natural one.

This one's a bit Rachel...

No-one got anything to say? You think it's a totally stupid idea? Say so and put me out of my misery. Please?

Not bad. My only concern is the potential for cheese if you select Human as a battle morph.

Not really. You need at least 5 levels of a class with BAB as wizard to qualify, so the extra stuff is only a payback for what you lost as pure fighter in attack bonus and feats. Still, I'll put natural attacks in. *edits*

I like it. And it does remind me alot of Rachel and her grizzley morph.

Oh yeah, definitely Rachel. I kept picturing that scene in Book 7 when she morphs the bear for the first time and just goes crazy. Perfectly captured, I like it a lot.

I love the idea, but I can see some nasty Druid combos. Battle Rage, with Natural spell? An Ironskinned Grizzly charging enraged with Greater Magic Fang? Nasty.

Triaxx: Well, first you have to multiclass to a low BAB, no-casting class for at least 5 levels. Then burn levels on this non-casting PrC. And why couldn't the party buff you up before you rage? Also, you can't cast spells while raging. So I think it's pretty balanced.
