Barbarians often have a mistrust of technology and its corruptive influence. Some of these warriors have developed special techniques and skills to protect themselves from mechanical foes.

Alternate Skills

A liberator gains Stealth as a class skill and removes Climb from her list of barbarian class skills.

Hard Hitter (Ex)

At 2nd level, a liberator can make devastating attacks against objects and foes with breakable components. Damage dealt by the barbarian’s attacks ignores an amount of an object’s or creature’s hardness (if any) equal to 1/2 her class level.

This ability replaces the uncanny dodge.


At 5th level, for any foes in a liberator’s threatened area, the DC to cast spells defensively increases by 1. The DC increases by 1 again for every 5 levels thereafter (to a maximum increase of 4 at 20th level). If the barbarian gains the disruptive rage power, the two abilities stack.

This ability replaces improved uncanny dodge.

Hide from Constructs (Su)

At 14th level, a liberator can control her movement, breathing, body temperature, and other physiological signs to confuse the artificial visions of constructs. At will, the barbarian can make herself undetectable to constructs as if she were affected by a hide from undead spell that instead hides the subject from constructs. Intelligent constructs receive a Will save (DC 10 + 1/2 the barbarian’s level + the barbarian’s Constitution modifier) to see through this effect. The barbarian must expend 1 round of rage for each round she uses this ability.

This ability replaces indomitable will.

Rage Powers: The following rage powers complement the liberator archetype: deadly accuracy, energy absorption (fire), energy resistance (fire), greater energy resistance (fire), gearbreaker, guarded stance, lethal accuracy, low-light vision, night vision, rolling dodge, reflexive dodge, surprise accuracy.
