Fury feats

You can take each feat only once, unless the feat’s description says otherwise. You must meet any prerequisite specified in a feat to take that feat. If you ever lose a feat’s prerequisite, you can’t use that feat until you regain the prerequisite.

You have undergone extensive physical training to gain the following benefits:

  • You become capable, or proficient if you are already capable and are 5th level or higher, with the Athletics skill.
  • When you are prone, standing up uses only 1 meter of your movement.
  • You can make a running long jump or a running high jump after moving only 1 meter on foot, rather than 2 meters.

Prerequisites: Capable with at least one weapon group

While you aren’t incapacitated, you and each friendly creature within 5 meters of you who can see or hear you gains a +2 bonus to initiative rolls.

This does not stack with other ability bonuses to your initiative

Prerequisites: Capable with the brawling weapon group

You are capable with improvised weapons and you can roll a d4 in place of the normal damage of your unarmed strike. If you are 5th level or higher, you become proficient with improvised weapons.

Prerequisites: Capable with at least one weapon group

Choose two weapon groups to become capable, or proficient if you are already capable and are 5th level or higher, with via the Weapons skill.

If you are a Monk, weapons in these groups are considered monk weapons for you if they lack the heavy and special properties.

You can select this feat multiple times.

Prerequisites: Proficient with chain, scale, or plate armor

While you are wearing chain mail, scale mail, or plate armor that you are proficient with, the armor’s soak value is 3 instead of 1.

Prerequisites: Proficient with at least one weapon group

When you roll damage for a melee weapon attack, you can roll the weapon’s damage dice twice and use either total.

Fury fighting styles

If your class or archetype has fighting styles, you can learn them.

Once on your turn when you use an action to make a weapon attack with an unarmed strike or monk weapon, you can make an additional unarmed strike.

If you are 6th level or higher, you can make an additional unarmed strike.

This cannot be used with the normal Two-Weapon Fighting rules.

When you roll damage for an attack you make with a melee weapon that you are wielding in two hands, you can roll one extra die of the weapon’s base damage dice and discard the lowest of the weapon’s base damage dice. The weapon must have the two-handed or versatile property for you to gain this benefit.

If you are 6th level or higher, you’ve also learned to put the weight of a weapon to your advantage, letting its momentum empower your strikes. You use your Strength and a half instead of Strength for the damage rolls of melee weapons that you are wielding in two hands.

When you engage in two-weapon fighting, you can add your ability to the damage of the second attack. Additionally you can draw or stow two one-handed weapons when you would normally be able to draw or stow only one.

If you are 6th level or higher, you gain a +1 bonus to Defense while you are wielding a separate melee weapon in each hand and either you gain a +1 bonus to attack rolls you make with light weapons you are wielding in separate hands or you can use two-weapon fighting even when the one-handed weapons you are wielding aren’t light.
