Mutagenic Rager

The mutagenic rager’s vicious power comes not from her primal anger, but from alchemical transformations that enhance her physical prowess while tearing at her mind.

The mutagenic rager is an archetype of the barbarian class.

Mutagen (Su)

At 1st level, a mutagenic rager discovers how to create a mutagen that she can imbibe in order to heighten her physical prowess, though at the cost of her personality. This functions as an alchemist’s mutagen and uses the barbarian’s class level as her alchemist level for this ability (alchemist levels stack with barbarian levels for determining the effect of this ability). A mutagenic rager counts as an alchemist for the purpose of imbibing a mutagen prepared by someone else.

This ability replaces rage.

Mutagenic Rage Power

This ability functions like the barbarian’s rage power ability, except that a barbarian also gains the use of rage powers while under the effects of a mutagen. In addition, a mutagenic rager may select a discovery that modifies her mutagen instead of a rage power at every even level. She may also select the following discoveries as options: healing touch, preserve organs, and spontaneous healing. She uses her barbarian’s class level as her alchemist level for these discoveries.

This ability alters rage power.

Greater Mutagen

At level 11, the mutagenic ranger gains greater mutagen as a bonus discovery, gaining the benefits even if she does not meet the prerequisites.

This ability replaces greater rage.

Mutagen Antidote

At level 14, the mutagenic rager can end his mutagen‘s effects as a full round action that provokes an attack of opportunity. She siphons the antidote back into a vial so that she can use the remaining rounds later. This process is traumatic; as such, the mutagenic rager is fatigued for 2d6 rounds.

Grand Mutagen

At 17th level, the mutagenic rager gains grand mutagen as a bonus discovery, gaining the benefits even if she does not meet the prerequisites.

This ability replaces tireless rage.

True Mutagen

At 20th level, the mutagenic rager gains true mutagen as a bonus discovery, gaining the benefits even if she does not meet the prerequisites.

This ability replaces mighty rage.
