The tireless rager has no control of her rage, instead raging when she suffers failures and setbacks. Once she does rage, she can do so forever.

Class Information

This is a Barbarian archetype

Hit Die: d12.

Class Abilities

The tireless rager has all the class abilities of the barbarian, except as noted below.


The tireless rager gains Endurance as a bonus feat at first level.

Tireless Rage

This is the same as the rage ability, with the following exceptions.

  • There is no limit on the number of rounds per day a tireless rager can rage.
  • The tireless rager cannot enter a rage by spending a free action. Instead, she enters rage randomly under certain stressful conditions. With each condition that is fulfilled, there is half chance that she immediately enters rage. Check each time a condition applies; multiple rolls a round are certainly possible.
    • Her turn begins in a combat round.
    • She takes damage.
    • She misses an attack, fails an attribute roll, or fails a skill check.
    • She notices that she is the target of a hostile spell or spell-like ability.[1]
    • The barbarian or a friend can spend a standard action to provoke a rage by chewing her shield, battle cries, taunts, and so on.[2]
  • She can end a rage at will as a full-round action, and it ends after a minute out of action[3]

Avoiding Rage: Sometimes, particularly out of combat, the tireless rager may not want to enter a rage. In this case the chance to enter a rage is reduced to one in six for each trigger.

It is suggested that rage checks be made on 1d6. On a roll of 1-2, there is no rage. On ea roll of 4-5, the tireless rager has the option to enter rage. On a 6, the tireless rager enters a rage no matter what.


  1. ^ In most cases spell effects are obvious and automatically noted. Against subtle spells such as charm, you notice that something happened on a successful saving throw.
  2. ^ This action is Perception DC 0 to notice, about as noticeable as casting a spell with verbal components. Remember range and circumstance modifiers.
  3. ^ Combat or similar intense round-by-round action. Basically a rage continues as long as you count initiative.
