Dwarven Ancestry Feats Level 1: Vengeful Hatred

Hello adventurers of all shapes and sizes! Welcome to my guide and thank you so much for checking out what amounts to technically the last episode of our level one ancestry feats for the dwarves once again they might add new ones hopefully fingures crossed and they will but in terms of the core rule this is the last one and let me tell you they did not disappoint. We’re talking about vengeful hatred and as edgy and as cool as it sounds. Its mechanics or even edger and even cooler it’s just good, it’s good stuff. This is what this is my reason for living now i’ve decided. In any case let’s take a look at its description.


You heart aches for vengeance against those who have wronged your people. Choose one of the following dwarven ancestral foes when you gain Vengeful Hatred: drow, duergar, giant, or orc. You gain a +1 circumstance bonus to damage with weapons and unarmed attacks against creatures with that trait. If your attack would deal more than one weapon die of damage (as is common at higher levels than 1st), the bonus is equal to the number of weapon dice or unarmed attack dice.

In addition, if a creature critically succeeds at an attack against you and deals damage to you, you gain your bonus to damage against that creature for 1 minute regardless of whether it has the chosen trait. Special Your GM can add appropriate creature traits to the ancestral foes list if your character is from a community that commonly fights other types of enemies.

Whis is a cool caveat but overall this is awesome let me tell you, this is sweet, cool as heck. It scales it’s good for combat, it’s cool thematically there could be back story attached to it. Heck yes! good job pizo, thumbsup from papi absolutely love it, let’s check out the breakdown.


So this essentially is comes down to a couple different parts. Firstly just put some on your charactersheet that you a vengeful hatred that can be applied to damage…cool! Then you pick one of your ancestral foes be a drought door guard giant orc or whatever else GM lets you pick.

And then when attacking that particular any creature of that particualr trait. You get a +1 to damage per weapon dice which is cool! And then the best part if you are damaged by a crit, you gain the benefits of the feat against the creature who created you for one minute which is about 10 rounds.

Oh man that is so cool! I don’t know how you want to role play this or play it mechanically but it is pretty freakin sweet. It’s basically like an a heretic rage how much is that. That’s so edgy, edge lord to the max. This is sweet, super cool absolutely love it.


That being said! Let me know what you think down beneath in the comments section, mention any thoughts, questions, comments, concerns, personal builds, ideas i want to hear at all. That being said, i hope you all have a great day and as always happy adventuring my friends.
