Asuran Fury Bladestorm Archetype

The asuran fury school is an ancient martial tradition that mixes unarmed combat techniques, gauntlets, and the art of the bladestorm. They are famously hot-headed and see the many gauntlets they wield as an extension of their body rather than their minds.

This ability modifies summon flying blade.

Furious Fists

At 2nd level, asuran furies deal more damage with their gauntlets than a normal person would, as shown on Table 2-1: The Asuran Fury. The damage listed is for medium asuran furies. For small or large asuran furies see the monk’s unarmed damage progression in chapter 3 of the Pathfinder Core Rulebook.

When calculating the effectiveness and DC of their flying blade techniques and dances, the asuran fury uses the chosen modifier instead of their Intelligence modifier.

The asuran fury must choose the close weapon group as their favored weapon group.

This ability modifies favored weapon.

At 20th level, the asuran fury’s BAB is equal to their level. In addition, they can maintain an additional 3 flying blades at a time.

This ability replaces king’s armory.

If they have or ever gain Power Attack from another source they instead gain Furious Focus.

Retaliatory Rage

When the asuran fury takes damage in combat they can fly into a frenzy in the following round.They gain +2 Constitution and +2 Strength, but take a -2 penalty to AC. The frenzy lasts as long as the battle or 1 minute, whichever is shorter.
