This is a Barbarian subclass for 5A.

It’s said that size matters. Warriors that embrace this philosophy light the fires of their rage into an inferno that causes them to expand, briefly transforming them into large humanoids and finally giants, to better lay waste to their foes.

In order to benefit for this primal path, you natural size must be Small or Medium - the path does not offer any benefit to actual giants.

Orc's Stature

Starting when you choose this path at 3rd level, you increase in size when you rage. Your gear, including armor and weapons, grow with you. If you are Small you become Medium. If you are Medium, your size increases to the upper limit of your size category and your weapons grow to match your new size, dealing 1d4 extra damage. You have advantage on Strength ability checks.

Giantkind

At 6th level, choose a type of damage: cold, fire, lightning, poison, or thunder. When using Orc's Stature, Ogre's Stature, or Giant's Stature you gain resistance to the chosen damage type. When you advance in level as a barbarian you can replace the chosen damage with another type of damage from this list. At your option, this choice can affect your appearance, especially when enlarged.

Ogre's Stature

At 10th level, your ability to rapidly expand is dramatically improved. When you rage, you can increase your size to Large. Your gear, including armor and weapons, grow with you. This negates any other effect that changes your size. You gain a space of 10 feet and a reach of 10 feet. If there isn’t enough room for your new size, you cannot grow Large and instead gain the benefits of Orc's Stature. While you are Large you have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws and your weapon attacks double the damage dice of the weapon used. (1d6 becomes 2d6, 1d12 becomes 2d12, 2d6 become 4d6, and so on).

Orc Power

Starting at 10th level, you can choose to use Orc's Stature at all times, not only when raging. As a bonus action you can turn this ability on and off. You can still turn Orc's Stature on as a part of entering a rage and turn it off when ending a rage.

Giant's Stature

When you reach 14th level in this class, your capacity for attaining new physical heights reaches its threshold. When you rage, you can increase your size to Huge. Your gear, including armor and weapons, grow with you. This negates any other effect that changes your size. You gain a space of 15 feet and a reach of 15 feet. If there isn’t enough room for a Huge creature, you instead gain the benefits of Ogre's Stature. While you are Large you have advantage on Strength checks and Strength saving throws and your weapon attacks triple the damage dice of the weapon used. (1d6 becomes 3d6, 1d12 becomes 3d12, 2d6 become 6d6, and so on).
