    Default Barbarian Path of the Brawler [PEACH]

    I recently received a request from a player that missed the fact that Barbarian didn't have a good unarmed option in 5e without cobbling together a bunch of feats or multiclassing. He's seen most of the other homebrew I've worked on, so he asked if I could find one or put one together. I've run across a couple online that have some elements that I enjoyed, but nothing that really satisfied either of us as it stood. So I set about building one using some of those elements and some of my own work. Here it is. Let me know if I ran too wild with anything or if there's something you think that I overlooked. Thanks.

    Edit: I've done a couple of proofreading changes. More importantly, I included a power attack and unarmed attacks counting as magical. Most importantly, I rewrote slightly so that, by default, you choose one aspect but your DM can let you pick and choose. In this way it's just like the Totem Barbarian. This required some extra verbiage to make sure that someone can't skip one level of Pugilist just to pick up the better benefit at the next milestone without penalty.

    I like it, kind of a different take on the totem barb.

    We actually have a couple of these, if you're interested:

    Path of the Brawler

    Path of the Haka

    Muscle Wizard

    Precisely. It felt like a good way to approach it.

    Yes! I saw those once upon a time and intended to include the magical attacks and power attack aspects in the Pugilist, but I forgot all about it. That's probably why I kept looking at the Pugilist track and kept thinking that it looked bland. I think I'll find a way to incorporate those now. Thank you.

    Other than that, I like the flavor of the Path of Haka. The Muscle Wizard is cute. It wouldn't merit a spot at my table, but I could see where others might include it because it could create some fun characterization.

    Thanks!
