Frenzied Berserker

From Sigil - Planar Legends
Jump to navigation Jump to search

The random madness of the thunderstorm and the unpredictability of the slaadi come together in the soul of the frenzied berserker. Unlike most other characters, she does not fight to achieve some heroic goal or defeat a loathsome villain. Those are mere excuses - it is the thrill of combat that draws her. For the frenzied barbarian, the insanity of battle is much like an addictive drug - she must constantly seek out more conflict to feed her craving for battle.

Along the wild borderlands and in the evil kingdoms of the world, frenzied berserkers often lead warbands that include a variety of character types - and even other frenzied berserkers. Some such groups turn to banditry and brigandage; others serve as specialized mercenaries. Whatever their origin, such warbands naturally gravitate toward situations of instability and conflict, because wars and civil strife are their bread and butter. Indeed, the coming of a frenzied berserker is the most obvious herald of troubled times.

Bloodletting

The frenzied berserker craves the ecstasy of combat and the intoxicating thrill of bloodshed above all else. In their growing state of mania, they harm themself for 20% of their max HP and then heal 6% of their max HP every round over 5 rounds. Bloodletting cannot be used if it would instead kill the berserker. This ability is a free action on a 60-second cooldown.

The frenzied berserker shouts, granting themselves and their allies in a large area +1 attack per round and 5% immunity to physical damage. Free action. This effect lasts for 60 seconds.

Frenzy


The Berserker works themselves into a terrible fury, rendering them nearly immune to all but the most powerful strikes and allowing them to wallow in the bloodbath of combat. Rage Cost - 85. Free Action. Cooldown: 18 seconds. While frenzied the berserker gains +1d10 Slashing Damage, +5 AB, +1 attack per round, +10% immunity to all physical and elemental damage (reduced to 5% for the remainder of the cooldown after Frenzy ends), and will heal themselves for 3% of their max HP whenever they damage an enemy. Last but not least they are immortal for the first three seconds of their frenzy. At the end of frenzy any damage you would have taken below 1 HP is dealt to you, this damage is lethal. The effects of frenzy stack with those from any rage ability the character may have. Frenzy lasts for 6 seconds, or 9 seconds with the Empowered Frenzy feat. (Also the VFX lights you on fire. It's entirely cosmetic but rad a.f.)
