Bloody-Knuckled Rowdy

Bloodragers are frequently rough-and-ready, untrained scrappers who learn to exploit any advantage to gain the upper hand in a fight. The bloody-knuckled rowdy focuses on tricks and maneuvers that are quick and effective, duplicating combat styles from professional brawlers, street thugs, and even trapped animals. Rather than focusing on a single style, most bloody-knuckled rowdies dabble in multiple techniques, mixing and matching their array of vicious maneuvers to suit the occasion.

The bloody-knuckled rowdy does not gain damage reduction.

Reduced Spells Known

The bloody-knuckled rowdy focuses more on fighting tactics and less on his natural arcane powers. He receives one fewer spell known at each spell level.

This ability replaces uncanny dodge and improved uncanny dodge.
