Fans of the Pugilist class may have noticed that last month the class earned an Adamantine metal on DM’s Guild. That means the class has made over 5,000 sales and, at the time of this post, is in the top 14 best selling products of all time on the DM’s Guild. That’s amazing!
I wanted to celebrate by adding something totally new to the class: a magic archetype. I decided against creating a third caster archetype and instead focused on creating features that emphasized supernatural themes. The end result is a fight club for pugilists’ that have pledged themselves to dark powers in exchange for the strength needed to destroy their enemies.
Before adding this fight club to the pugilist, I wanted to create an opportunity for a round of public playtesting and conversation about the Hand of Dread. If you have any thoughts, reactions, or feedback I’d love to hear all about it! Leave a comment here, tweet @ me, or join the conversation on our subreddit. Please be aware that if this archetype meets the standard necessary to be officially added to the pugilist class it will be made available in the full paid product.
